Happy 27th birthday, Drake! Here, we got you this bespoke Calvin Klein wardrobe for your “Would You Like A Tour” tour. Generous, we know. You’re welcome! JK JK LOL, we WISH that had been our idea. We considered making you bespoke cupcakes in your likeness, but quickly realized that our baking skills are lacking. Your face is hard to draw with frosting! It's the thought that counts though, right? Lucky for Drake, he is actually getting custom stage outfits by CK (just not from us).
Justin Bieber on set for his Adidas NEO photoshoot.

We've already seen the images for Justin Bieber's most recent Adidas NEO campaign, but now, thankfully, there's a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, so we can peep moving JB in all his dancing/drumming/pose-striking glory. There's also a lot of reclining, like in his fall campaign, because dancing using only your shoulders is tiring.
Jay Z for 'Vanity Fair.'

For the November issue of Vanity Fair, Jay Z be on his suit and tie s***, tie s***, tie. The man loves him a good dinner jacket and gets all pressed up in black and white on his first cover for the mag. The feature gives readers a rare glimpse into the life of a modern day mogul, who currently has a hand in pretty much everything. (But seriously.) Aside from his involvement with music, movies, video games, a theater, a nightclub and a sports team (*wipes sweat off brow*), Jay’s fallen hard for fashion. But, contrary to what one might assume, it’s not all about the Benjamins anymore—it’s about making improvements in the industry, he says.
While you were carving pumpkins and putting the finishing touches on your Halloween costume this weekend, Kanye West was kicking off his Yeezus tour in Seattle. His first solo tour in five years, Yeezy held nothing back, giving his audience a massive show (a two-hour 27-song set list to be exact) complete with an enormous mountain-shaped set, a cameo from Jesus, and of course, a bajillion fashion Easter eggs (our favorite!)—and we're not just talking about MTV News' Rob Markman's first-hand account that Kanye's Red October Yeezy 2s have red glow-in-the-dark soles.
It feels like just yesterday we were peeping Justin Bieber's Fall campaign with Adidas NEO. Well, a great day has arrived yet again (and sooner than expected!): Bieber's Winter campaign is hurr, and he's lookin' #swaggy.
The Fall campaign featured several looks, but this one, at least so far, only has J. Biebs in a blue and red plaid flannel. He is ready for winter, people. He's from Canada, so he knows how cold it can get out there. Justin also shows off his black and red NEO sneakers (which we saw in the earlier campaign) by using a drum as an ottoman. Drums are for creating beats, man, not showing off your new kicks! He pairs his rather low-key look with a diamond chain-link necklace that, unfortunately, is not part of the collection. Maybe next time, Bieber? Give the people what they want: diamonds!
Rocky and Cara in Times Square.

SCURRT! That would be the sound of breaks grinding to a halt, which was heard both inside AND outside our NYC office, as we caught wind that A$AP Rocky, Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn were shooting brand new ads for DKNY in the middle of Times Square yesterday. So much for those rumors about Rita Ora replacing her BFF, Cara, in the designer’s taxi cab campaigns, eh? Looks like there’s room for more than one pretty face in the DKNY family, which is really great news because we’d hate to see #FASHUN tear anyone apart.
One Direction's "Midnight Memories" album cover.

Well, the past two days have been a complete whirlwind in the world of One Direction and for those who inhabit it. First, the name of their next single, "Story Of My Life," was announced via Twitter and accompanied by baby pictures of each of them. Now you can blend baby pictures of yourself and, say, IDK, Harry to imagine what your children might look like. You can spend all weekend doing that if you want, YOLO, the weekend is ~you~ time. Anyway, can you believe it was less than a year ago that we were lauding 1D for their collective band style? I mean, on the cover of Take Me Home, which was released last November, they're all wearing suits! Things have changed big time in the past year, and we're not even talking about their tattoos, just #FASHUN.
Kanye West on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

I would track the events leading up to Kanye West's appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live for you, but then, I'd be here writing the biography of Mr. West and all you really want is more context for the things he said last night. More recently, the Kanye x Kimmel chat can be traced back to the revealing interview Ye had with BBC 1 Radio's Zane Lowe wherein he spoke very candidly about classism in the fashion community, his qualifications as a designer, and how he and Virgil Abloh had the idea for leather jogging pants 6 years ago but were turned down by Fendi. It was impassioned, it was classic Kanye, and it made its way into a Jimmy Kimmel sketch which had kids reenact the interview, bleeps and all.
Welp, Ye didn't find it funny and later took to Twitter to let out his frustrations with Kimmel and the spoof. The tweets (which incidentally revealed that Yeezy is preeeeetty gifted in the ways of Meme Generator) have since been deleted, and the two sat down last night to publicly talk it all out and make nice. As with any time you give Kanye an open platform, the conversation was rife with quotables (shouts to our friends at Buzzworthy for putting them all on t-shirts because duh), but it was also littered with some pretty serious fashion subtext. Thus, we're giving Ye's best fashion quotes a closer look.
Big Sean for GQ.

Oh gawd! Who better to show off some of fall’s hottest trends for men than one of hip-hop’s most buzzed about MCs, Big Sean? In between promoting his sophomore album, Hall of Fame, collaborating with everyone from Drake to Miley, and, of course, cozying up with
girlfriend fiancé and total Gleeker, Naya Riviera, Big Sean somehow managed to find time to pose for a 15 photo spread. Swerve! The G.O.O.D Music signee was tapped by none other than GQ to model "Fall’s 15 Freshest Style Moves" for their November issue, and yes, the photos are amazing!
Zayn Malik on stage in a Misfits skeleton shirt.

Looks like Zayn Malik has caught Halloween fever early. After a brief break, the One Direction guys are back on tour (thank you, we've missed you!) and in Australia. While the fivesome used to hit the stage in coordinated outfits, the Take Me Home Tour has been more relaxed, and allowed the boys to ~express their personal styles~ when performing. One member (see: Harry Styles) is even allowed to wear the same pants day after day. Being in 1D is so chill, man.
