A still from "Mac Miller And The Most Dope Family."
On this week's Mac Miller And The Most Dope Family, Mac Miller and his boys venture out on the high seas for a group fishing trip, thus fulfilling one of our favorite oddities of celebrity culture: famous people doing totally regular things. Before the full episode premieres tomorrow night at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, we have a sneak peek of Mac and his crew hitting up California's Fishermen's Spot for their boating duds. Personally, we're pretty into the whitewater crewneck Miller is already wearing, but we'll also never turn down an excuse to go shopping. As the dudes rifle through rip-stop ponchos and utility vest with thousands of pockets for baits and tackles, Mac Miller poses a question we often ask ourselves: What would Kanye wear?

Have you guys been suffering from I Just Want My Pants Back withdrawals as much as we have? Yeah, it's rough. But we've got good news, because Jason— sorry, Peter Vack— has returned to the small screen! Well, kind of. The actor is the star of 7 For All Mankind's Spring 2013 campaign video, "A Beautiful Odyssey," which debuted yesterday online. Photographed and directed by the one and only James Franco and co-starring former hockey pro Sean Avery, the mini film is a choose-your-own-adventure story that's stocked with some soap opera-worthy scandal. Expect a botched wedding, a love triangle, and some hot and steamy moments (plus cute clothes, of course), and the best part is, YOU get to choose what happens. Intrigued? Find out more below!
A$AP Rocky covers "L'Uomo Vogue" magazine.

It would be pretty bold to say that A$AP Rocky is single-handedly making menswear a LOT more interesting for us with his unpredictable oscillation between streetwear and high fashion, but... he kind of is! Dat PMF racks up yet another fashion editorial, landing himself on the on the cover of L'Uomo Vogue's March 2013 issue. We knew it was only a matter of time before Rocky made his Vogue debut, and it only makes sense that his introduction to the legendary glossy would be via the magazine family's Italian menswear vertical. You know what also makes sense? That they would swaddle him in Milan's finest: Dolce & Gabbana. Maybe it's silly to expect anyone to get a Vogue feature but with Rocky's excellent taste, hobnobbing with designers, sitting front row, and even modeling in fashion shows, it seems only logical. Also, the Harlem fashion killa kind of already tipped us off to the new cover.
Must. Have. Ryan. Gosling. Everything.

Hi, friends! We're starting a weekly feature where we unleash our inner obsession for ALL to see. It's called "Stan Swag," and it works like this: We pick a celebrity/band/TV show/movie that we're OB-SESSED with, and we scour the internets to find the most amazing (or creepy!) merch to show off our true stan (stalker + fan = stan) side. Because, hey, there's nothing wrong with showing a heck of a lot of affection toward someone we've never met (and may never actually meet), right? Right.
We don't know a single girl that doesn't like Ryan Gosling. Heck, even most dudes can get behind Ryan's effortless street style, piercing blue eyes, and downright adorable sense of humor. Like, do we even need to explain this? Just look at this photo. LOOK AT IT. *convulses* There are no words. ANYWAY, hai, we're obsessed with Ryan Gosling, and we're ready to share it with the world. But let's face it, we are SO over the traditional movie poster tees or boring mugs, so we found some super cool pieces that'll show off your (and our) fandom in the freshest way possible. Disclaimer: Wearing these all at once may make you look like a crazy person. Ease into it, y'all. Nice 'n slow.
Justin Bieber channels Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader with his second gas mask outfit.

I'm pretty sure I don't reeeeally need to write anything under this image, but it's Thursday and I'm in a good mood, so I'll do it anyway. Justin Bieber's casual gas mask is officially no longer a one-time thing. Biebsy brought the full-face respiration aid back out last night for another spin around London. His second gas mask outfit was generally pretty similar to the first — the standard drop-crotch, black leather to play off the black plastic, a surprise repeat for that one particular Nets cap — but there are some key updates that have totally transformed how we think about this look. To put it simply, J.Biebs in a brown hooded sweater AND black gas mask, feels totally like he's channeling Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader AT THE SAME TIME. *brain explodes into a rainbow of laser beams*
Kanye West performs on the Watch The Throne tour wearing a Givenchy shirt and leather kilt.

I never in a million, trillion years thought I'd be using "pobrecita" as a modifier for "Kanye West", but... here I am muttering them in the same breath because Yeezy landed at #7 on MTV's "Hottest MCs in the Game VIII," and he had *achem* a lot to say about it. In short, it quote-unquote "bothers [him]." ACK! He broke his media silence on Tuesday night, opening up to Hot 97's DJ Enuff about the list and all his thoughts and feelings around it. The chat even caused a little soundbite about Ye giving Sway Calloway his first TV to trend all over the Twitterverse (go to here for the full story from Sway himself).
While the conversation started with Kanye supporting his boy Big Sean's high placement on the list, Yeezy soon launched into theorizing about the basis of his #7 spot saying, "I don't know, it's definitely not based on a body of work. It possibly could just be like overall rap-MC-swag, you know what I'm saying?" He elaborated further adding that it might have something to do with his style of late, "They don't like 'Givenchy Kanye,' they don't like Kanye in a kilt, they don't like Kanye in a relationship."
Well, y'all. I know you weren't asking, but Kanye is hands down one of my absolute favorite MCs of all time. ALSO, if anyone in this world loves "Givenchy Kanye," it's us, the humble keyboard-tappers here at MTV Style (Exhibits A, B, C, and, like, infinity more letters that haven't even been invented yet). Double also, we know for sure we're not alone on this one. Thus, we've put together a pick-me-up reminder for Ye with pictures of people showing love for The Great and Powerful "Givenchy Kanye." We love you, Yeezy! Don't ever change!
A still from Joey Bada$$' "Unorthodox" music video.

We're going to let this post do a little double-duty today. Brooklyn-based rapper Joey Bada$$ has just released a brand new music video for his track "Unorthodox" with DJ Premier. It's a primary-colored oscillation between real footage and animation that set this MTV Artist to Watch against cityscape backdrops of subway tracks, bodegas, and highways (achieved via greenscreen if you were wondering *WINK*). Aside from the stunning visuals and the BK teenager's ill rhymes, we want to highlight Joey's wardrobe of choice for "Unorthodox": Ecko Unltd.
Justin Bieber wears a Hype Means Nothing tee in London.

Welp, looks like Justin Bieber is starting off his last teenage year, streamlining his wardrobe a little bit as he heads into his twenties. Perhaps we're speaking too soon and The Biebs will prove us horribly, horribly wrong with some wretched Pepto Bismol pink gas mask he's been saving up for when we least expect it, but for now, we're going to dole out some praise of Justin's latest casual London look. After having reportedly left his O2 audience waiting for upwards of two hours the night before, Bieber greeted fans from the balcony of his London hotel yesterday in a simple yet striking grayscale graphic tee and a black backwards snapback. We're not saying the "swaggy" ensemble and extra facetime made up for the major tardiness, but we just had to track down this tee nonetheless.
Russell Westbrook for Flaunt magazine.

We've been keeping you updated on Russell Westbrook's rise to fashion ubiquity ever since the Oklahoma City Thunder forward started making waves in the 2012 NBA Finals post-game interviews with his lenless glasses and colorful couture shirts. Having staked a style claim to him so early, it's been really fun to watch him rack up editorial after editorial as the Thunder work their way toward this year's Playoffs. The latest notch in Russ 44's magazine belt (err, not that kind of magazine belt) comes courtesy of Flaunt magazine and is a MAJOR one because West is the first athlete to grace the glossy's cover! *wipes away single happy tear*

For those MTV Stylers who don't live in Manhattan and/or just don't have the downtown scoop, you can thank us right here, right now. Meet Frankie Sharp, the reigning prince of the debauchery guaranteed nightlife below 14th Street. His bananas bash (Westgay) at former strip-club (Westway), which has garnered a ‘The New York Times’ feature/a ‘Paper’ Magazine Nightlife Award, is seriously everythiiiiing. Reason #1: those gorge booty-bouncing go-go boys who, I must confess, I've hit on each and every week. Hates gon hate. *Hair flip* Also, AMAZING NEWSFLASH: just a few weeks ago, Mr. Sharp kicked off what might just be an even wilder party (!!!), “Frankie Sharp’s ‘Friday’ at Santo's Party House,” which already boasts killer performances from our weave whipping-friendly girls Natalia Kills, Brooke Candy and the First Lady of the Ruff Ryders aka EVE (!!!) Oh, and there's this, too: Frankie's vodka-chugging (OKAY MAYBE NOT ALL OF Y’ALL) attendees have included a range of uh-mazing Girl Power-ers like, you know, Lena Dunham, Kirsten Dunst, Carmen Electra aaand dynamite designer divas like Alexander Wang, the Proenza cuties, Prabal Gurung, Nicola Formichetti, Olivier Theyskens, and the freakishly fab like. More impressive than his famous friends = Frankie's head-turning, "you better werrrq!"-inducing numbers. TBH, I dream of one day "borrowing" some (see also: everything!!) of Frankie's Jeremy Scott magical menagerie. But there’s MORE: He’s BFF with Jeremy Scott/has modeled for him/and DJed his NYFW after-party. *Sigh* Alright, here we go...Frankie's Fave Things! ME-WOW!
