Harry Styles is going to need a bigger trophy case if he keeps winning all these style icon awards. At the MTV EMA he won the award for "Best Look" and, now, he was named "British Style Icon" at the 2013 British Fashion Awards. British style icon and king of my heart: you're killin' it, Mr. Styles.
When Harry won his award at the MTV EMA, we were like, "Duh, look at how he pulls off bold prints. Also, that hair!" Back then, we didn't know how he could work the runway. We didn't know how a casually draped scarf looked around his neck. I mean, look at that thing (see above)! Of course he's winning all the awards. He even wore black jeans with intact knees to the ceremony. He didn't even bestow that honor upon the Midnight Memories album cover. Or to the premiere of This Is Us. He was vying for this award. Hard.

It's hard to tear your eyes away from all the mouth action (yea, I said it) happening in Justin Bieber's "All That Matters" music video, but if you are of sound enough mind and strong enough will to do so, you may have noticed something peculiar about the wardrobe. And no, I'm not talking about that blonde girl in the denim overall crop top that may or may not be from Rihanna's debut River Island collection. It seems The Biebs has pulled a page from Kanye's book of answers with this video steez by wearing a KILT. And a leather one, at that! Yep, the pop wunderkind took a momentary break from his super-saggy (not to be confused with swaggy), butt-baring pants in favor of these Rick Owens leather skinnies with an attached matching kilt.

ICYMI: Jay Z doesn't pop Molly, he rocks Tom Ford. Oh. You've heard his song "Tom Ford," and you already knew that? Well, apparently, Jay doesn't think we got the message. Or maybe he just loves Tom Ford THAT much. Or, even more likely, Mr. Carter realizes that his words are good enough to wear. Last night, Jay Z kicked off his Magna Carta World Tour in St. Paul, Minnesota and took to the stage in a custom, black and white jersey tee emblazoned with lyrical references to his standout hit, "Tom Ford." Hov repped the designer's name on the back of the shirt, along with Ford's birth year (1961) and the word "Molly" crossed out.

HEY, MEN. Want long, luxurious locks like Harry Styles? You're in luck! Great Lengths, a British hair extension company, has a line of "Men-Hancements" (LOL), which the men of London are using on the regular. British men are so into extensions that the company says that men will account for 10% of their sales this year. That's a lot of "men-hancements," y'all!
The site has pictures of models and men who decided to "men-hance" themselves and, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but none of them come close to approximating the undone, voluminous coiffure that's now signature to Harry. That hair, with its front height and side curls cannot (and should not, IMHO) be attempted by anyone else: we saw that last week in the One Direction ad for Macy's.

One Direction members, part-time Macy's salesmen, American Music Award winners, and... models? Yep. Two members of 1D have ditched singing to parade their beautiful faces all over the globe. JK! Over the weekend, though, was a 7-hour livestream for 1D Day, and Harry Styles and Liam Payne took to a catwalk to strut their stuff. Judging the walk off? Oh, Cindy Crawford, our OG House Of Style host, NBD.
Harry and Liam took to the runway in fan-made shirts: one featured song lyrics, another song titles, and one just had 5 stripes and, TBH, I'm not sure how it was relevant to 1D. One of the shirts Harry couldn't get over his headband in time, so he just carried it in front of his tattooed torso, which was pleasant, but also unusual. I mean, CHELLO, you're Harry Styles. We've seen you shirtless before! You were shirtless throughout 1D Day! Why so shy in front of a professional model? You know her. You made pizza with her kids, remember? She won't judge you too harshly!
Justin Bieber released the short film for his new fragrance, The Key, this weekend—and from what we gather, once you purchase said perfume, the Biebs has full license to break and enter your room without any legal implications. Don't say we didn't warn you. Of course, if you like the idea of Justin waking you up at 3am on a Tuesday to go look at taxidermied animals and dance on a rooftop, then you're in luck. Maybe still sleep with a bat under your bed just in case, though. JK! No need to be scared. Justin Bieber will only sneak into your room to do fun things, according to his film.

Does anyone know what vitamins One Direction takes? What magical concoction gives them the ability to host a 7-hour livestream for 1D Day yesterday and then roll up to the AMA Red Carpet looking fresh, coordinated, and as cute as ever? Because HEYYY, I WANT SOME.
For their arrival, the guys stuck to a black and grey palette, but in varying forms of dressiness: Harry had on a tuxedo jacket, while Niall had on a charcoal bomber jacket. Liam, as usual, had on an inexplicable trench coat. All five guys wore tight black jeans and, unusually, Harry's weren't ripped at the knees! These must be his formal jeans. Louis, as always, skipped socks because having smelly feet must be his ~thing~. Zayn's turtleneck was not out of place, despite being in L.A., because, as you may have heard, it's 61 degrees there and all Angelenos are freaking out about the cold front. If Zayn gets too cold, Liam could lend him his coat. He always has one with him.

Eminem's "Rap God" video is on its way! Em released a teaser for the video and he's wearing...a suit? Like, I think the last time Eminem wore a suit was in the "Without Me" video when he was playing a game show host? Dude doesn't wear suits, so we're going to cherish seeing him in a jacket, even if it is extremely shiny. His sunglasses are likely in place to shield his eyes from the sheen coming off that suit.

As you may recall, One Direction released their first fragrance, "Our Moment," last summer. (I remember this every morning as I spray all my clothing with the sweet nectar.) Well, the boys and Macy's have just released a NEW video for their Black Friday sale and, well, despite being only 30 seconds, it's very insightful. There's a lot to learn from this commercial.
The video opens with the members of 1D gathered around a perfume display case of "Our Moment" as they arrange the pink boxes. They're (once again!) coordinated in black, white, and red and, TBH, look comfortable working in retail. TANGENT: What if you walked into a store and someone who looked even slightly like Zayn Malik was helping you buy perfume? You would faint, and then, YOU'D GO BACK TO THAT STORE EVERY DAY. YOU'D BUY EVERY PERFUME EVER MADE. The actual members of One Direction better get out of Macy's before Black Friday, though, because they can't afford to have their faces trampled on.
Justin Bieber for 'The Hollywood Reporter.'

Justin Bieber is NOT swaggy. And that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the 19-year-old pop star showed up for his interview with The Hollywood Reporter in a bright red onesie. Hey, a dude’s gotta be comfortable for a long, serious sit-down, right?
Despite the fact that some people (including Justin himself up until now) might argue that the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2013 plaid Doberman Pinscher sweatshirt he wears on the cover of the mag is the very definition of "swaggy" (see also: "awesome"), Bieber is no longer defining his look as such. “I'm very influenced by black culture, but I don't think of it as black or white," he says. "It's not me trying to act or pose in a certain way. It's a lifestyle—like a suaveness or a swag, per se. But I don't really like to say the word ['swag'] anymore. It's kind of played out." Welp, that settles it. R.I.P., swag.
