Harry Styles' One Direction Office Depot Collection

Hey Directioners, you need to run, not walk, to Office Depot right now. Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn, and Louis are here to ease your Back To School shopping woes with their faces! One Direction and Office Depot have joined together and created a collection of Back To School products that will definitely make you the coolest kid (or adult, whatever) in school (or at work). The collection, in addition to providing notebooks that you'll want to constantly take out of your bag and ogle, aims to create bully-free schools by donating a portion of the proceeds to Office Depot's Anti-Bullying Foundation. Each product is emblazoned with mottos to live by, so when Liam tells you to "Live True," and Harry says to "Live Nice," you probably should.
Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never" style: then and now.

Set your alarms, Beliebers! "Bieber O'Clock" strikes this Saturday, August 3 at 8 p.m. EST on MTV. Haven't heard of "Bieber O'Clock"? Welp, it's when MTV will start airing extra special, exclusive content from THE Justin Bieber himself leading up to the TV premiere of his throwback (OK, not that throwback; it was 2011) documentary, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. The film itself airs this Sunday at 8 p.m., but in preparation, we took a look back at the international pop superstar's steez from the movie and placed it side-by-side against looks from the past year to see how much (if anything) has changed since then. (Spoiler alert: a lot has *cough*tattoo sleeve*cough* but surprisingly, much as stayed the same.)
Snoop Dogg in his "Snoopermarket" Overstock.com commercial.
Do you ever think sometimes that maybe Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion, depending on the project/your vibe) sits around his house (in a plushy robe and house slippers, of course) and just brainstorms puns he could make with his name and how he could spin them into business ventures? Take the latest: The Snoopermarket, a collaboration (a.k.a. marketing stunt, depending on your tilt) with Overstock.com wherein the man stars in a commercial and curates a suite of his (and his family's) favorite products.

What's better than a little One Direction? A LOT of One Direction. We've been playing the colossally famous boy band's "Best Song Ever" music video on repeat for the past week, ogling their Teen Vogue AND British GQ cover steez and placing pre-orders for their glittery nail polish. You'd think we would have reached our 1D saturation point by now, but apparently, that's not actually a thing. So far, it's physically impossible for us to get our fill of Harry, Zayn, Liam, Niall, and Louis. Enter this behind-the-scenes cut from the dudes' music video shoot which gives a look at their "Best Song Ever" alter ego makeovers.

Look, guys! It's One Direction on the cover of Teen Vogue! Feel like you're having déjà vu? Pretty sure you remember 1D JUST posing for the The Fashion Bible's younger sister really recently? Welp, you're not alone. And you're not wrong, either! The world's most adorable Brit-Irish boy band is gracing the cover of Teen Vogue for a second time, less than a year after the group's first appearance. Back in winter, Teen Vogue gave Harry, Zayn, Liam, Niall, and Louis individual covers swaddled in tweeds and wool knits—"Hot Holiday Style" was the predominant cover line. Now, the teen glossy has the dudes (deservedly) back for their September issue (a.k.a. the Super Bowl issue of the fashion editorial world)!
Jay Z might be next to collaborate with Barneys New York for the holidays.

Holy grail! According to our friends over at WWD, Jay Z (minus the hyphen) has been in "secret talks" with Barneys New York for a possible collaboration slated to drop during the holiday season. While neither party has confirmed the news, we can only hope (and write sweet letters to Santa) that the rumors become reality.
You might be saying to yourself, what could Jay Z bring to Barneys New York? Hellloooooooo??? He's JAY Z! He runs this town. C'mon, "Empire State of Mind" is pretty much the New York state song at this point. It makes perfect sense that the fashion mecca of the city gets cozy with its leader. Plus, Jay's interests have totally expanded over the years, from inciting a game changing partnership with Samsung for Magna Carta… Holy Grail, starting his own sports agency, to shutting down art galleries for his "Picasso Baby" music video shoot. There's no doubt, Hov won't conquer the fashion world, too. I mean, all he rocks is "Tom Ford"—and well, that speaks for itself.
Dennis Rodman evidently had a BLAST at this Miami Swim Week show.

In case you didn't already know, there are multiple international iterations of Fashion Week. Twice a year, runways circumvent the globe from New York to London to Milan to Paris, showcasing all the best and brightest that the world's design minds have to offer. There is also a Fashion Week for swimwear, and it takes place in (DUH) Miami. Granted, you know, it's not entirely the same as the Anna Wintour-trodden hallowed catwalks of NYFW (Miami Swim Week, instead welcomes Kardashians and our very own glass bikini-clad Kristin Cavallari with open arms), the 5-day long event draws in its own special league of front row fixtures. Most notably this year? Retired American Hall of Fame NBA player Dennis Rodman. And that's not just because he's a basketball legend, or because he was the key to VICE's entry into North Korea, or because he's the only dude whose lifetime total of hairstyles might rival (or even eclipse) Nicki Minaj's either. While we weren't there ourselves, we peeped the photos from the Anna Kosturova/Beach Riot/Lolli Swim/Manglar/Indah show which he attended on Monday, July 22, and it looks like The Worm had a certifiable BLAAAAST.
Miguel for Mr Porter.

Wow. Throw up some claps with me for Mr Porter, y'all. The menswear e-tailer has knocked yet ANOTHER dude-torial spread and interview out of the park with this Miguel feature. You might remember the austere minimalism of their Jared Leto shoot or the streetwear-inspired steez of their session with A$AP Rocky or, like, a bazillion other drool-worthy photo sets they've put together with our favorite dapper dudes. (I mean, honestly, it's like they jacked the list from our
diaries of future boyfriends brains and are just checking projects off as they work their way down...) This time, Miguel gets his turn in the Mr Porter spotlight with a candid heartfelt interview, a spread full of chic autumn/winter wardrobe staples, AND *drumrollllll* an acoustic performance of "How Many Drinks?" to boot!

Directioners, are you still breathing?? It's been several hours now since the release of One Direction's "Best Song Ever" music video (#BestVideoEver), and I'm still barely able to process all my incredibly, overwhelmingly positive feelings about it. I can only imagine how the most die-hard 1D Stans are doing right now. If you haven't watched it yet, do yourself a favor, scroll to the bottom, and watch it already. Granted, I am also a fan, but come on, how can you argue that this isn't the science of the Boy Band (which, OK, is more like one-third science, one-third pop magic, and one-third hormones) vacillating at its highest, most unquestionably adorable frequency?
The "Best Song Ever" music video a One Direction masterpiece that will go down in these dudes' history of group iconography in much the same way that "It's Gonna Be Me" does for *NSYNC. LOADED COMPARISON, I KNOW. But y'all, this video is good. And what's one of the biggest parts of why it's so good? THE OUTFITS. *puts hand to ear and looks off in the distance* Hear that? It's a Look By Look. And it's coming your way in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1!
On Saturday night, mustachioed television host and noisy Republican, Geraldo Rivera, took to Twitter to announce that "70 is the new 50." To emphasize his point, he posted a selfie of himself clad in a towel slung so low on his hips that you can see his "D'Angelo muscles," which is to say you can see his obliques. Witnessing this particular #OOTD (outfit of the day) is eighteen-million types of alarming and one of those things you can't unsee.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about because I'm just "mashing together some names you've heard your mom say" it's because prior to this moment you gave not one F about this Geraldo dude (if it's the same case for D'Angelo, you should study up he's VERY good). The cheat-sheet is that he's been married 5 times, has been to Iraq 11 times as a war correspondent and once famously humiliated himself on live television in the late-80s when he claimed to have discovered the vault containing Al Capone's treasures and then cracked it open to find some dirty old bottles. If you follow any Old People, you will see variations of this joke in your timeline.
