The Finals may be over, but there's still one last NBA event to look forward to this summer: 2013 Draft Day. The event kicks off THIS Thursday night in Barclays Center where pro-teams will take turns picking up young hopeful draft prospects. These draft candidates are mostly college students which means they don't necessarily have access to stylists like their professional counterparts. The focus on fashion this Draft Day is poised to be higher than ever, and with the bar leapfrogging from the previous years' style train wrecks to the high fashion example set by this year's Playoffs. One dude, however, has distinctly less pressure in the wardrobe department come Draft Day, and his name is Nerlens Noel.

Drizzy Drake announced the official release date of his upcoming album Nothing Was The Same (September 17!) on Saturday, and celebrated the news by sharing four new songs. Among these “keep calm, my little ones” tracks is a remix to a song called “Versace” by Atlanta trio Migos.
Now, I don’t know if you’ve previously HEARD “Versace”, but the chorus is quite complex and needs to be experienced first hand to digest properly. Before we move on, press play and head directly to 1:35.
+ LISTEN TO MIGOS - 'VERSACE (FEAT. DRAKE)'
Just kidding, it’s not complex. It’s hilarious. (Quote: “Versace. Versace! Versace? Versace. Versace! Versace? Versace...”) Its original rendition already had enormous radio potential (these rascally youths love their repetitive hooks!), but Migos hit the jackpot on the remix with a rapid-fire guest verse from Master Aubrey Graham himself. (Now you can rewind and go to the beginning to hear it.)
We need to get something off our chest, y'all—we're jealous of Jared Leto. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman has sported everything from spiky mullets to mesh tank tops to bare brows and STILL always manages to look amazing. At this point, it's just become straight-up unfair, but today, he dropped the mega bomb. He posted an Instagram pic featuring his gorge face on the cover Candy magazine's summer 2013 issue—completely in drag. The cover, shot by Terry Richardson, features Mr. Leto KILLING. IT. in a cotton candy pink bob with blunt bangs, out-of-this-world lashes, and shiny, crimson lips. LAWDY, we can barely handle this. #WERK
This is it! The moment that LEGIONS of Directioners (ourselves included) have been waiting for. The full One Direction movie trailer for 1D: This Is Us is out now and ready for our repeated playback, screenshotting, and general ogling pleasure. The teaser clocks in at just over three minutes of rowdy boy action, a sneak peek at the dudes' new track "Best Song Ever," and ACCENTS. The guys' goofy antics are way reminiscent of *NSYNC in their prime and fully remind us why the whole "boy band" thing has been begging to come back, but rather than following in the carbon-copy clothes and well-choreographed footsteps of their boy band predecessors, 1D is the cheekier, slightly less regimented, INFINITELY better dressed iteration for present day. Their This Is Us trailer reflects all of the above accordingly, SO we're breaking down our top ten style moments from it for you. (And yes, that does mean we captured still images of Harry and Liam with their pants down.) Enjoy!

THIS is what sets One Direction apart as a next generation boy band. Gone are the days of matching shapeless jumpsuits. 1D reps experimenting with textures, color-coordinated layering, and pants that actually fit.
Aiden and Ethan played by Charlie and Max Carver in 'Teen Wolf.'
While the mysterious deaths surrounding Beacon Hills still remained unsolved, there is one thing we do know for sure--there's a WHOLE lotta twin action happening on Teen Wolf as of late, and we like it. Sure, Aiden and Ethan are kind of, well, scary, but when they are roam the halls with all their other high school classmates, we can't help but notice their standout style. In tonight's episode, we got to peep two types of twinsie looks, the first being their simply badass classroom-ready ensembles.
Behind the scenes of Taylor Lautner for Bench.

Taylor Lautner just might be one of the most talented dudes out there today. We already know the Twilight star can kick butt onscreen and has a knack for regularly cranking out the red carpet hits, but turns out the actor has another hidden skill up his sleeves. Even when he's not commanding the screen as Jacob Black, he can still pull off his stunts... dressed in chinos, no less. Our boy shows off his killer abs and tons more in this new behind-the-scenes clip for Bench's new clothing campaign, where, spoiler alert!- you'll probably swoon. But duh, that much should be obvious, right? Following in the (very handsome) footsteps of former Bench model Liam Hemsworth, Taylor proves his leading man status climbing ropes, doing pull-ups, and giving seriously good face decked out in the U.K. brand's casual basics.
Some might say there's a thin line between pushing the envelope and just being straight-up nonsensical. Fashion Week and all its other runway-laden permutations is a hotbed for that kind of style gray area and this week's London Men's Collections were no exception. Don't get us wrong, there were PUH-LENTY of gorgeous completely 100% wearable looks that stormed the catwalks across the pond, but there are ALWAYS going to be a few token ensembles you look at and think, "Umm, this exists?" Thus, we've rounded up what are, in our opinion, the five most difficult outfits to wear IRL from this season's presentations. Enjoy!

We're pretty sure it shouldn't come as a surprise that wearing a giant black plastic bucket on your head is going to present some vision issues, but even there ARE microscopic holes near the ocular region, it's probably just as difficult to walk into a coffee shop and be taken seriously when you're sporting this bad boy.
LeBron James transforms after losing his headband in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals. Watch out, Tony!

You know how there's that totally illogical reveal element to the Superman story where suddenly Clark Kent can transform into the Man of Steel just by taking off his glasses? This ridiculous notion that ONE accessory can catalyze a complete alteration of character? Like, dudes, we can all still tell Clark Kent is just a four-eyes, suited-up version of Superman. Welp, apparently, it's not that ridiculous since that's exactly what went down last night when LeBron James lost his headband in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals. In truth, it really wasn't just James that propelled the Heat to stave off elimination and force the series against the San Antonio Spurs into a Game 7 (there's no "I" in team, etc.etc.), but (with the HUGE exception of Mike Miller and his one-shoed three-pointer), no one else's in-game style took a hold of Twitter in quite the same Superman moment way as LeBron and his headband. And now that we think about it, they ARE both from Ohio...
Taylor, Isaac, and Zac Hanson.

Two things. Tomorrow is the O Music Awards's Live Day, AND *takes deeeeeeeeeep breath because this is the most exciting thing I've said all day* HANSON is performing!!!! As in THIS Hanson. As in the three brothers from Tulsa, Oklahoma who struck pop GOLD in the late '90s thanks to rosy cheeks and a seriously underrated debut single (I'm, of course, referring to "MMMBop"). These bros are getting together to play the O Music Awards Live Music Day Festival which kicks off tomorrow at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT and lasts for 24 HOURS and is aaaaall streamed online. Since we know you'll be tuning in from home but will still want to look put togeths (because IDK about you, but Hanson was *IT* for me in 4th grade and they've only gotten better with age), we've put together a li'l outfit suggestion for your big night in with the boys.
