"I am fashion" - Justin Bieber

It would seem that Justin Bieber just can't win. There was that time he hoped Anne Frank would have been a Belieber. Or when his bodyguards carried him up the Great Wall of China. And of course, most recently, he paid a visit to a controversial landmark in Japan. But you know where Biebs is winning? In the wardrobe department. Just look at that oversized KTZ T-shirt with a big ol' cobra and "POISON" written in Arabic (which, BTW, you can buy for yourself if you have $365 burning a hole in your pocket). Bieber's fashionable, and he knows it. So much so, that he captioned this snap with a weighty declaration: "I am fashion." Whoa. Not just fashionable or fashion forward. Bieber. Is. Fashion.
One Direction shoes because why not.

Have your feet been feeling decidedly un-British recently? Do you long to have signatures on your
sneakers (sorry) trainers? Are you very, VERY much into One Direction? Well, then, you're in luck—One Direction finally have shoes that fit all of your needs and desires. This morning on Twitter, the One Direction account announced that for the next five weeks they'd be sending a pair to five people who subscribe to their newsletter. Um, do you get to choose whose signature you get? Some people might only be interested in one specific pair, so, like, how do you guarantee you win the blue ones? Asking for a friend. Also, if this is a surprise, how do they obtain your shipping information and shoe size? While I wouldn't throw away a pair of Niall kicks that showed up on my doorstep (size 8.5 U.S. women's, please), I'd be weirded out that the people who run 1D's Twitter somehow found my address.
Yaaas, you didn't think we'd forgotten about Coachella, did you? Nooo, of course we didn't! We recruited our old pal Jarvis Derrell of #shehashadit to comment on some of the looks from the festival because, as we know, #everybodyaintable. Peep below to see what you may have missed in Indio.

Jack Johnson + flip flops + Earth Day = well, right

This is not a drill. Today is Earth Day, and Jack Johnson has just released a collection of eco-conscious flip-flops. I repeat, this is not a drill. If the idea of Jack Johnson putting out a line of laid-back sandals has you singing, "JJ Casuals, shoes that look like feet," to yourself, YOU'RE NOT ALONE. The moment this little announcement landed in my inbox, visions of Andy Samberg clad in a hemp necklace and oversized plastic Hobbit feet flooded my mind's eye. Immediately after that, I actually opened the press release.
What would Rita Ora steal from Prince's closet?

From the moment we read in Rita Ora's interview (with bestie Nick Grimshaw) for Paper magazine that Prince assisted with her forthcoming sophomore album, we've been OBSESSED with this idea of His Royal Badness letting her play dress-up in his closet à la that Super Bowl episode of New Girl. Naturally, we HAD to slip this question into her MTV Twitter Takeover today (Monday, April 21): If you could steal one thing from Prince's closet, what would it be? We ask the hard-hitting Qs around here, y'all.
Uh, has Adam Lambert been hanging around with Rihanna? Because he’s quickly on his way to becoming her male hair-chameleon counterpart. Only a few days after the singer debuted a Katy Perry-esque green hue, Adam’s onto the next–white hair. He captioned his car selfie “White Hair Don’t Care,” which, if you remember, was the very same caption he used when he posted his green 'do. You can't just "not care" about your hair but constantly change it, Adam! Which color do you care about? For now I feel safe betting on white. Tomorrow could be a different story.
Either way, we are 100% behind this new look. A white dye job hasn’t looked this good since Halle Berry championed it as Storm in X-Men. Of course, Anderson Cooper might try to take credit for this look's growing popularity, but the natural white-haired look doesn’t really compare to the intentional one, which has a sort of cool irreverence.

How's it going, Directioners? Enjoying your Friday? Enjoying One Direction's new video where they share clothes and morph into one another? Me too! After teasing the video all week on Instagram, it's finally here. While Harry wears zero things (zero!) on his head, there is other fashion to be discussed. Mostly how all five dudes are in the same outfit for the majority of the video. Do you think they all shared one sweater or were there numerous? If there was only one, how much can I buy it for? Inquring minds need to know.
The sweater in question, of course, is a gray crew-knit. While we only get full-length shots of Niall and Harry wearing the sweater, their bottom halves are also styled the same, in tight black jeans. Niall also debuted his new 'do in the video. While he's shown it off on Instagram, this is the first time we're seeing it in motion, fluttering in the wind. His old coif was way too gelled to flow freely like that, TBH.

The three other guys are also wearing the sweater. While it's plausible that Louis has capris on, I think it's safe to assume that all have black jeans on out of frame.
We've kept track of what Harry Styles wears on his heads for a long time around these parts. I keep an updated list of every hat, headband, or mask that touches his flowing brown curls—that's not for work, BTW, just more of a personal thing. Anyway. While his luscious locks usually fly free in One Direction's music videos, it looks like his headgear collection may have infiltrated the video for "You & I."
In case you weren't aware, there's a new 1D video dropping tomorrow. The band has been teasing the video—Harry's clip went up today and within 10 seconds he has three different things on his head.
There's the furry hat that he pairs with a shearling-lined coat.
Adam Lambert follows Katy Perry's green hair lead.

Do Adam Lambert and Katy Perry drink water from the same source? Is there something in the water? What other explanation is there for why two people decided to dye their hair green in the same week? I honestly can't think of any. Oh, maybe because it looks good? That could be it.
Adam Lambert debuted his new 'do on Instagram, captioning the photo, "Green hair don't care." I think you do care, Adam. I'd care if I could pull off green hair. Adam really went for it, even dyeing the closely shaved sides of his head. While it's hard to tell what shade of green his hair actually is (thanks, Instagram filters), it looks like it's a pretty dark shade.
Here at MTV Style we get really excited when the worlds of music and fashion meet, so Coachella is like a homecoming of sorts, where everyone tries a little harder and flaunts their style, whether they’re turning up their usual look or testing out some riskier #FASHUN. With a star-studded lineup and killer surprise guest list, it’s safe to say that this year Coachella had some of its most eye-catching moments yet—and this was only Weekend One.

Katy Perry didn’t perform but she was (easily) spotted around the festival all weekend long—who could miss her with that new slime-green hair? Obv, Katy didn’t wear a flower crown; she already had a lot going on in the hair department. Katy showed that her green 'do is actually more versatile than you’d think, pairing it with a very ladylike black-and-white ensemble and a turquoise pencil skirt and matching crop top.
