Some may say Justin Bieber has a healthy level of self-confidence, but in his latest music video he pursues a "Confident" lady. While the video doesn't feature many outfit changes from JB, there are a few and due to #swag levels, they deserve attention. We're here to give it to them. Peep his looks (and tiny mustache) below!

The video opens with Justin leaning against a car at what appears to be a gas station. He is wearing a light-blue MCM backpack, which he promptly drops to the ground after a pretty girl walks by. Uh, Biebs, have you ever looked at the ground at a gas station? It's covered in, like, oil and gas. RIP, $600 leather backpack.

With all of the brands that A$AP Rocky name drops in “Fashion Killa”—all 27, to be exact—it’s pretty crazy that it took this long for one of them to tap the song as a promotional soundtrack. Fittingly, DKNY, who already released a print campaign featuring A$AP, is the first. In the video for DKNY’s Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, perrrfectly timed for the Super Bowl this Sunday, master funny face-maker Cara Delevigne tosses a football around Times Square with fellow models Jourdan Dunn and Eliza Cummings while they’re all wearing sporty logo-emblazoned gear by the brand. Rocky is tossed the ball only once. Ladies, look to Rocky: He's open, he's open! Football has never looked so fun. Seriously though, when’s the last time you saw someone crack a smile while throwing around a football? When’s the last time you saw someone spike a football while standing on a taxi? #CaraDelevingnesTouchdownFace

Harry Styles, Beyonce

Wet hair, normally reserved for after the shower, at the beach, or in a pool, seems to be making its way into live performances and music videos. Beyonce sported a wet 'do onstage at the Grammys, while Harry Styles appears to have dripping wet hair in new promo images for One Direction's upcoming music video, "Midnight Memories." What gives? Some of us can't leave the house with wet hair, guys. Some of us need to load our hair up with product and wrap it around a curling iron approximately one billion times before it even comes close to being presentable. Some of us live in New York where it's going to be very cold forever (not #confirmed). Since some of us cannot take part in this new wet hair trend, let's discuss whether Harry or Beyonce wore the style better.

Malcolm McLaren

Last night at the Grammys, Pharrell's hat was all the rage, so to speak, making rare note of forestry on the red carpet, and even garnering its own Twitter account. But while his pairing of the Smokey hat (or, to him, "military inspired") with an Adidas jacket may have seemed random, there was a very specific method to his madness: His ensemble paid homage to the video for Malcolm McLaren's 1982 single "Buffalo Gals," written after the legendary punk svengali/visioneer first attended a Zulu Nation park jam in the Bronx. In essence, Pharrell was bigging up that very creative moment when punk and hip-hop were cross-pollinating and speaking to one another, both musically and sartorially.

McLaren opens the "Buffalo Gals" video in the very same park ranger hat and khaki safari jacket, bopping around between shots of a very formal square dance in a basketball court, and slightly less formal B-boys clad in Pharrell's exact Adidas gear. "Buffalo gals go around the outside," McLaren raps, with background vocals and scratches by members of the Zulu Nation and the World's Famous Supreme Team. As style collisions go, Skateboard P.'s ensemble makes sense in this context, even if it didn't on the carpet.

“Oh snap, I’m running late—let me just grab these clothes from the bottom of my closet and bounce,” Pharrell Williams said, 20 minutes before he showed up on the Grammys red carpet looking like Dudley Do Right-meets-Run DMC (though the interwebz is dead set on Smokey Bear). No, but really, he is probably the only person at the awards show who can say, “I woke up like dih.”

Even though the show has yet to begin, music's brightest stars are already lighting up the 2014 Grammys red carpet. BIG TIME. And little do they know that before the competition starts to heat up for RULL, an unannounced battle royale has been brewing on the sidelines—and the winner won't be going home with a golden statue. MWAHAHA. They will, however, be going home with our highly coveted accolades, so, you know, there's that.

It's not often that we come across two dudes with hair SO GOOD that we'd trade it for our own. It's even less often that the dudes in question are old enough to be our dads. (Most of us, anyway.) But tonight, both Jared Leto (who's a mind-blowing 42, FYI), and Ozzy Osbourne (who's 65), have given us ombré *ACHEM* homme-bré strands to envy.

LL Cool J

Step into a world of LL Cool J's hats.

LL Cool J will three-peat as Grammys host on Sunday, and we're big-time pumped to see a perfect melange of pearly whites, charm, lip licking, and eye twinkles. (Ladies Love Cool James for a reason.) As far as his wardrobe choices go, there is one department in which he WILL NOT FAIL: That dude will wear a damn hat. We bet you one million dollars.

The simple fact is that LL Cool J and hats belong together. They've been in a long-lasting, loving, nourishing relationship since he was a kid. When he became a sensation with the release of Radio in 1985, it wasn't long before he became synonymous with the Kangol bucket hat and transformed the accessory into a hip-hop essential.

Because of this attachment to his Kangol, there was a time in the late '80s and early '90s when LL Cool J's bare head was basically a mythical creature, and people even started to wonder if everything was OK under there. I remember being so intrigued by what secrets lay under that brim. In the video for "Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)," the world got its big reveal: LL's bald noggin peeking through the top of a leather visor. He glances coyly at the camera and brushes the surface, acknowledging the shift in what the world knew about LL Cool J's head.

So moisturized.

There are few things that can ~truly~ alter a person's life: moving to a new city, finding love, getting a great job. But when you're a world-famous movie star with a face that launched a million fangirls, discovering a great moisturizer can be pretty life-changing, too. At least that's what Robert Pattinson claims in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal. All's been relatively quiet on the R. Patz front since the release of his full-length Dior Homme ad in September, but the Twilight heartthrob says his beauty regime has come a long way in recent months.

One Direction

Gather round, young children looking to learn the alphabet/One Direction fans! The strapping young men of the world's most popular boy band have an upcoming appearance on Sesame Street and, as the preview shows us, they're teaching "what makes 'U' useful." In the clip, the lads sing about words that begin with and include "U," like "udon" (for the precocious Sesame Street viewer), "ugh" (for exasperated children), and "up" (for the really young ones). While all of those words are perfectly useful (especially "ugh," IMHO), we thought of a few ~fashionable~ options relevant to One Direction.

First up is the word suit. While it's rare you get all five members in suits at the same event, when you do, it's a beautiful thing. Suits are what make One Direction beautiful. JK, it's their faces!

Drake

I'm not saying I was nervous for Drake to host SNL. I'm just saying that my insides were convulsing in meaty ways because I just want the whole world to love him the way I do, and OH GOD, what if he totally Phelps'd it? Or what if he was too cool to play along? The best hosts accept and dive into skit concepts that make them look foolish in the best ways possible (see: Hutcherson, Josh.) What if Drake was stiff, or even worse, not funny? FEAR NOT, me. This is a dude who started as an actor, see. And as it turns out, he's still a consummate pro—even in the glare of live television.

How many rappers do you know who will sword fight in a wizard costume, lunge in some shorty shorts, or seamlessly transform into a lame dad? I mean, we're talking about a superstar who FULLY knows that he's a walking meme, but embraces it and continues to propagate it in various ways. I guess he's not too worried about his cool meter—he just wants to have some fun.

ONWARDS, MINIONS! TO THE LOOKS!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
