Brad Pitt's hairstyles over the years.
Guys, it's less than a week away until the MTV Movie Awards, and we're already fuh-reaking out over the host (Rebel Wilson!), live performances (Selena Gomez! Macklemore!), and presenters (Zac Efron!), but, get this, we've got an even bigger addition to the already-amazing Movie Awards crew—Brad Pitt! The iconic actor will present the Movie of the Year award on April 14, but most importantly, we'll get to peep his hair game IRL. Now, if you remember his complete "hairvolution" from 2011, flowy blonde locks, slicked-back strands and buzzed 'dos should come to mind. There's no telling what Brad might do to his mane next, so let's look back at all his iconic hairstyles and
ogle ponder over what he might wear come Sunday. (P.S.- Don't be jealous we get paid to do this.)
Snoop Dogg will release a clothing collaboration with HUF.

Almost three years after the fold of his own Rich And Infamous line, Snoop Dogg is getting back in the clothing game with a little help from HUF. The beloved streetwear label is already basking in the launch of their high-profile collaboration with Diamond Supply Co, but according to Hypebeast, it's also teaming up with the legendary MC. They released a teaser image of Snoop clad in HUF's 12 Galaxies T-shirt, black pants, matching black fur coat, and embroidered "Snoop Dogg" eggplant house slippers perched in a wicker throne chair.
Russell Westbrook on the cover of "ESPN" magazine's Photo Issue.
If you haven't read Sam Alipour's interview with Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook for ESPN magazine yet, I'm squarely marking it as required reading for every human I care about (consider yourself in that league—yea, YOU!). First of all, the Q&A is incredibly long but only because Russ SO warrants it. For someone catching as much attention (and magazine features, holy moly!) as he has been for the past year, it's a little unheard of for the general public to know almost nothing about him. Welp, thanks to ESPN and Alipour that's all about to change as their conversation is published alongside a candy-colored fashion spread in the mag's 2013 Photo Issue.
The franchise we typically use to celebrate interviews we love that we didn't conduct ourselves is called "5 Things We Learned," but in this case, there was absolutely NO way we would be able to narrow this down to just 5 things. The banter between Westbrook and Alipour is DRIPPING with innumerable nuggets of precious Westbrook history and trivia: how he almost went to Stanford University for academics alone, how sometimes he bowls by himself, how and why he loves math, and the reveal that he has over 100 pairs of glasses (though, that shouldn't come as that huge a surprise all things considered). But trust me, it gets SO. MUCH. BETTER.
HOMG, y'all. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are performing at our 2013 MTV Movie Awards!!! The Seattle-based duo joins our girl Selena Gomez on the Golden Popcorn performance roster, and we could NOT be more excited about it. Not just because we're stoked on all the excellent music action happening at an awards show dedicated to films, but because our stage lineup is extreeemely fashionable (as MTV Style we care deeply about this). We're light-headed and reeling from being sprung this announcement so early in the morning (it's early for us anyway), but that doesn't mean we're not still going to unpack Macklemore's tag-popping MC steez to predict what he'll wear when he takes the stage with his boy Ryan Lewis next weekend (Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET). Here we go!
Sleeveless shirts are a Macklemore performance staple.

The Look: A shirt without sleeves worn underneath everything else
The Percent Likelihood of Wear: 99.9999%
The Argument: There are many admirable things about Macklemore, but one of our favorites is his unflappable dedication to performance. The dude is high-octane, running on all cylinders, leaping and bounding and flailing his arms all over the place (purposefully) for song after song after song. He's always moving and never looks tired. With all that activity, he heats up quickly, so you can put money on him wearing some sort of sleeveless number at the base of any stage ensemble no matter the topper. We are (okay, I am) personally gunning for something like this Vancouver Grizzlies throwback basketball jersey but know full-well it'll most likely be a cotton tank.

The creative geniuses over at Uniqlo have already given us some really cute clothes (and a case of hair envy!) to look forward to for spring 2013, but the Japanese retailer isn't finished quite yet. It's serving up another helping of style, this time starring the one and only Danny Brown. The rapper and former Mark McNairy model is part of the brand's UT TruckShop, a seasonal promotion that takes Uniqlo's rad new UT tees on the road... literally. Danny will join fellow faces like Miss Info and Curtis Kulig at pop-up events, performances and t-shirt stores around New York City this April. Before all THAT kicks off (his performance is this weekend!), check out Danny's new campaign video. His is the first of Uniqlo's "Life in a Minute" clips, which give us an intimate peek inside each artist's life in a mere 60 seconds. Watch it below, and find out more about the campaign here!
As if the, erm, questionable headlines and double-dose of SMIZE weren't enough to have me talking about Justin Bieber's two Teen Vogue covers for weeks (between status updates on his recently quarantined pet monkey OG Mally Bieber, that is), the teen arm of the Vogue editorial juggernaut also released the rest of Biebsy's feature photos. That's right, Beliebers. On top of two smoldering cover options, Teen Vogue has bestowed unto the world 10, nay, 11 more photos from Justin's shoot with the magazine.
The new images show Bieber from all angles—frontways, sideways, fully-clothed, fully shirtless (though, we suspect he considers his left side his "good side" since over half of the snaps feature it)—and yet, somehow I'm still unsatisfied. Perhaps my expectations are unrealistic. Perhaps it'll take actually purchasing the issue and thereby reading the full interview, rather than this excerpt, for all that to subside, for me to feel like I've really seen Justin in a new light, but MAN, do I still have a ton of lingering questions. I'd hate to bore you, but I also refuse to keep this ish bottled up. Thus, I whittled them down into five catch-all inquires, and well, here they are!
WHAT DOES JUSTIN'S CHAIN TASTE LIKE?

Three of the Teen Vogue photos picture J.Biebs with the diamond cross pendant of his chain hanging out of his mouth. It raises so many questions. Does Justin have an oral fixation? Was he directed to do this or was this his own idea? Is this a habit he's always had that I'm only just now becoming aware of? But the most important question is: what does Justin's chain taste like? It's gotta be at least kinda good if he keeps coming back to it, right?
In the dedicated sports world, the biggest basketball buzz of the moment is without a doubt the NCAA's escalating March Madness tourney, as the Louisville Cardinals, Wichita State Shockers, Michigan Wolverines, and Syracuse Oranges all head into Final Four games this Saturday. On the fashion side of things, however, it's the men of the NBA who are making the most waves. According to PSFK, retail giant Macy's is updating the store's classic suit and is looking to the pre- and post-game togs of professional basketball players for inspiration.
Justin Bieber on the May issues of 'Teen Vogue.'

The last time we spotted Justin Bieber on Teen Vogue's cover, it was September of 2010. He sported his signature side-swooped 'do, a striped pullover sweater, and a sheepish grin on his baby-faced visage. This time, though, Biebs graces the May issue (twice!) bringing SO much face (and 'tude), it's clear his transformation from tween heartthrob into smooth almost twenty-something is complete. He oozes with confidence, pairing hissky-high, pomade-infused locks with a white tank top and gold chain (not much unlike his performance look from late last year [see: exactly the same]). He fiercely smizes over his tattooed shoulder, locking us into his brown-eyed gaze so hard we can baaaarely function.

Twenty years ago today (exactly!), A Bathing Ape designer Nigo opened his very first store "Nowhere" in Harajuku, Tokyo. Since then, BAPE has risen to legendary status as a streetwear mainstay. Over the course of the past twenty years, the label has collaborated with a laundry list of entities from iconic characters (Hello Kitty, SpongeBob Square Pants) to mega brands (Pepsi, MAC) to artist heavy-weights like Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. In celebration of this major 20th anniversary, a select group of 20 artists, including Skateboard P and the (former) Louis Vuitton Don, will collaborate with BAPE on a range of T-shirts and art.
