Full disclosure: we've harbored a not-so-secret crush on Jason Schwartzman ever since his Rushmore days more than a decade ago. We know, we know...in movie star time, which is kind of like dog years, that's practically forever. But thanks to flicks like Bored to Death, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom AND a side gig modeling for Band of Outsiders, our obsession is still in full-throttle mode, and now it's taken up a notch with his new design project. The actor has created a style of glasses for the online eyewear boutique Lookmatic, putting his adorably eccentric spin on classic vintage frames. Dubbed the "Uncleanord" after a pair of specs he received from his Uncle Leonard (get it?) when he was a kid, the revamped '50s-inspired shape comes in black, olive, and clear prescription styles as well as a sunglasses version.

Gulp. What's up with Zac Efron lately? We don't mean that as a rhetorical question, we seriously want to know what happened to him. He somehow became a man over the course of the past year, and we really, really can't handle it. See: The John John Denim campaign that came out yesterday. Like, WUT. We know there are clothes in these pictures, but we can barely see them. All we notice are super ripped biceps and chiseled jaws and scruffy beards, and oh my god, we're disgusting. MOVING ON. The shoot, photographed by Jacques Dequeker, shows off tons of distressed jeans, washed-out graphic tees, and studded denim jackets from the Brazilian clothing line. Zac Efron looks ANYTHING but sweet in these badass campaign photos, which were inspired by Fast & Furious (if you can't already tell). In his first look, he showed off a killer black leather vest over a sleeveless tee and faded jeans. Me-ow.
What do you think of Adam Lambert's new hair color?.

If there's anyone who knows how to shake up his look, it's Adam Lambert. We're talking beauty pro status here, people. There aren't many dudes who can pull off warm-weather leather, glittery three-piece suits, and carefully sculpted facial hair, so we give him major props for that. But even with his beauty ADD, we definitely weren't ever expecting him to swap his trademark black hair for a bleach blonde 'do. But guess what- the day has come (!!) as evidenced by the Twitpic he blasted out to the world yesterday.
Theophilus London launches LVRS x Del Toro slipper collaboration.

The day has come, my friends. MTV Style finally met THE Theophilus London. I know, I know. So awesome, right? This is how it went down: We stopped by The Black Tag in Soho for Theophilus' LVRS x Del Toro slipper release party (yes, that's what it was called) to check out the shoes he designed and, of course, to talk ALL-things fashion. We even brought a camera crew to document this momentous event, and let us just say this—Theophilus is one hilarious (and high fashion) dude! After we chatted it up, the doors opened and fans swarmed in to shop his limited-edition slipper collection and LVRS clothing line. The drinks started flowing, the DJ turned up the jams, things got RULL sweaty, and we had a grand ol' time. Watch Theophilus dish on all the deets about his LVRS x Del Toro collab below!
One Direction will perform at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
It seems like just yesterday we were sliding and diving into Internet wormholes to figure out who these dapper little gents we kinda sorta remembered from the British X Factor were. Now One Direction is a household name (as are the individual boys). This latest iteration in boy bands is now a smash success, and we are SO excited to have them not only attending the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards as nominees but PERFORMING in all their blazer-wearing, besuspendered, GIF-worthy glory. *faints abruptly but is caught by Harry Styles hologram*
Boy bands have a long and storied history with the VMAs, and while we may have already done an exteeeeensive recap of boy band style from The Jackson 5 to the British-Irish lads of 1D, we felt this an appropriate time to delve into the specifics of VMA performance outfits. Think of the OG write-up as your survey class. Welcome to the 200-level courses. We're rolling up our sleeves and digging into the VMA stage togs of New Edition, Boyz II Men, Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, and The Jonas Brothers. LEGGO!
Ryan Lochte wears an American flag grill set during the Men's 400m Individual Medley medal ceremony at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Let's talk about Ryan Lochte. He's the 27-year-old American swimmer who made his Olympic debut at the 2004 Athens Olympics when he was just 19. He swam alongside Olympic phenom Michael Phelps (ever heard of him?) in the men's 400m individual medley this weekend and won GOLD for the good ol' U-S-of-A. BUT he was reportedly in danger of not receiving his medal because of a controversial accessory move en route to the podium: the dude popped in a set of American flag grills. It's not like we've never seen grills before (we ARE the network that brought you From G's to Gents sweetheart Riff Raff after all), it's just that, when you're part of a team that has posh Opening Ceremony uniforms crafted by Ralph Lauren complete with smart little berets, throwing on a pair of diamond grills is definitely a curveball. For a dude to pull a style stunt this ballsy, we KNEW there had to be more to this budding fashion icon, so we did a little research. To follow are our findings, and in the spirit of the international games, we're doling out (and subtracting) points as they contribute to Ryan's overall style score.

Who said pop stars and rappers had the monopoly on the celebrity designer beat? EDM DJ deadmau5 has just launched a fashion line collaboration with skate streetwear label Neff Headwear. The Neffmau5 collaboration launched this Wednesday (July 25) with 4 t-shirt styles, two sweatshirts (one hooded, one crewneck), and two snapbacks.

Robert Pattinson can pull off a sleek Gucci suit like nobody's business, but we all know that the Cosmpolis star would rather wear beat-up jeans and a comfy t-shirt over formalwear any day. This is why we're excited to see him in his signature lowkey style, gracing the cover of BlackBook's fashion issue, no less. Oh, and did we mention it's the perfect excuse to take a break from all the K.Stew cheating drama while STILL getting your R.Patz fix? Well, it is. Fashion photographer Autumn de Wilde (who's also responsible for those gorgeous Rodarte x Los Angeles Philharmonic images) shot the actor in a California roller rink dressed in graphic tees, jeans, and the occasional plaid shirt. Spoiler alert: he wears them all very well.
Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus.

Liam Hemsworth, fashion designer? If you ask his soon-to-be wife Miley Cyrus, it JUST MIGHT be happening. The singer was spotted at the Project New York Trade Show on Monday, checking out next season's clothes because- wait for it- Liam might start a clothing line! Women's Wear Daily reports that after Miley hit up collections from designers like Grey Ant, she told attendees at the show's after party that the reason she was there was because her fiance was curious about branching out into fashion. Hmm....interesting.

If you didn't catch last night's 2012 Teen Choice Awards, our dude Justin Bieber brought it HARD on stage, performing a medley of his smash singles "Boyfriend" and "As Long As You Love Me." The teen superstar cleaned up on the awards front, raking in a grand total of four surfboard trophies including *drumrolllllll* Choice Male Fashion Icon! The Biebz proved he was worth his salt on the sartorial front with an all-over metallic performance outfit, AND he brought back an updated version of that robot arm we saw last October.
