Kanye West is going to have some new Virgil Abloh swag to wear just in time for spring. Though he'll probably have access to Off-White, Virgil's new label, long before then. Ugh, being famous and the longtime BFF of a very popular designer is the best. Remember how quickly he got his hands on Pyrex Vision?? Like, HOW?? JK, I know how. (Money. Status. Power.)
Off-White is—according to Style.com, who spoke with Virgil—"a streetwear-meets-fashion line that builds on, and expands upon, Pyrex Vision." While Pyrex was screen-printed on other brands' shirts, Off-White will be "a full cut-and-sew line, made in Italy." Oh you fancy, huh? The line will marry Virgil's interests in Martha Stewart (LOL) and "shabby chic" aesthetic elements with athletic sensibilities. Imagine what Martha Stewart would wear to play streetball on Nantucket and you've got Off-White. Not really, but imagining Martha in oversized hoops shorts is a fun way to pass the time.
Justin Bieber at the premiere of 'Believe.'

Last night, Justin Bieber premiered his second feature documentary, Believe, which will hit theaters on Christmas Day. The Biebs walked across a purple (duh, his #1 color) carpet and encouraged Christmas spirit with the addition of some silver tinsel trees. In fact, Bieber's entire outfit was basically a swaggier version of Santa's traditional get-up. So festive!
Justin wore a red single-button blazer, a crisp white shirt (complete with popped collar), and red leather moto pants. He accessorized with a leather-banded bracelet, a sizable gold watch, several gold chains, and some sunglasses to protect his eyes from all that bling. The only thing he needed to complete his jolly look was a sleigh with some reindeer, a bag full of toys (although there was a donation box for that), and a fluffy white beard—but that kind of facial hair can take YEARS to grow. Thankfully, the 'stache can hold it down in the meantime.
Selena Gomez and Siva Kaneswaran are so happy they won our readers' poll!

The winners of our readers' choice poll for best dressed female and male artists of 2013 have been crowned. Congrats to Selena Gomez and Siva Kaneswaran! The Selenators and TWFanmily have
spoken clicked and voted their faves to the top.
It wasn't an easy road: Selena and The Wanted's Siva faced serious competition from the likes of Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Zayn Malik. It was a nail-biter, y'all! Siva and Selly laid low for the beginning of the competition, but thanks to their fans who voted thousands of times, they were able to cinch the top spots late in the game, edging them ahead of everyone else by six percent and four percent, respectively. Considering what fashion-filled years these two singers have had, though, it's not hard to see why their fans were so determined to win.
Kanye West was full of fashion-centric quotables this year.

Aside from the birth of his first child, an epically romantic proposal to girlfriend/baby mama Kim Kardashian, and releasing one of the most critically debated albums of the year, which was then accompanied by a massive, production-heavy national tour, 2013 was kinda quiet for Kanye West, amirite?? I mean, like, we BARELY heard a peep outta the guy! *pauses for effect, then busts up in belly laughs* NAAAHHHHTTTTT. If anything, we've never heard so much of Yeezy. Especially on the topic of fashion.
Ye's year-long commentary on/battle with the fashion industry has kept us busy for the duration of 2013. Between lyrics likening his experience putting together his own line to picking cotton and others that publicly acknowledge Forever 21, Mr. West gave his
2 infinity cents on the subject of style, and we've distilled the stand-outs.
Justin Bieber and his mustache in the trailer for 'Believe.'
In case you missed the widely circulated memo, Justin Bieber's new movie, Believe, is coming out Christmas Day. If you are not a hardcore Belieber, I would avoid going to the movies that day, because it's been three years since the release of Never Say Never, and the Beliebers are HUNGRY for more. A lot has changed since 2011, when bb Biebs had hair that swooped, a hairless face, and no tattoos. Now Biebs has a half-sleeve, a 'do that goes up rather than over, and what has become known as a "dirty 'stache."
In case you haven't watched the new trailer for Believe, I'll fill you in: Bieber decided to keep his tiny, sparse mustache for the movie's interview, where he gets #real and talks about everything that he's gone through in the past year, from attacking the paparazzi to falling in love. MTV was lucky enough to speak with Jon M. Chu, the movie's director, about the 'stache and how it ended up fitting in with the story's arc.
Is Kanye collaborating with A.P.C. again?

By now, it’s become routine for Kanye x A.P.C. collaborations to be revealed on the low in magazine profiles—which is seriously shocking given how vocal Ye is. Recall how the pair’s first time working together was revealed in one unassuming sentence—"That might be accomplished by his new men’s capsule collection of jeans, T-shirts, and hoodies for a hip French brand, to be unveiled in July"—that took a few glances to unearth thanks to the endless Yisms sprinkled throughout the piece. Well, according to a recent profile of A.P.C.’s founder Jean Touitou at Business of Fashion, the pair will unleash another capsule collection. "If I do a collection with Kanye West, obviously I’m taking risks," Touitou told BoF, who then wrote "Touitou confirms that A.P.C. will collaborate with...Kanye West...again."
Harry Styles channeling Keith Richards for his performance on 'The X Factor UK.'

Many moons ago, in early 2012, there were rumors afloat that young Harry Styles would be taking on the role of Mick Jagger in a Rolling Stones biopic. There were many similarities between the two: the hair, the love of blazers, the colorful turtlenecks. However, after last night's performance on The X Factor (where One Direction got their start, BTW), Harry seems to be channeling a different Stone. Any guesses? DING DING DING! It's Keith Richards!
Harry's love of scarves as headbands is no secret. Dude's been wearing them for months. While that accessory choice in itself is very Keith (with just a touch of John Mayer), Harry furthered the resemblance last night by wearing a cross earring in his left ear. Umm, Harry, when exactly did you get your ear pierced? Did Zayn do it, Parent Trap-style, with a lemon and sewing needle on the tour bus? Considering your every trip to the tattoo parlor is documented, I'm not sure how you flew under the radar and got your first piercing? Unless, maybe, it's a clip-on?
With the end of the year nigh, we've been reviewing 2013's most stylish stars. We rounded up the musical dudes and ladies whose aesthetic had you talking, we looked at how Miley Cyrus totally nailed the '90s, and we realized that this was totally the year of the designer track.
We now turn our attention to the stars of our very own MTV shows. When they're not crowding our TVs with their beautiful faces, they're stunning on red carpets, sitting front row at Fashion Week, and heading their own fashion empires. MTV stars are a busy bunch, y'all. *hair flip* Let's see what some of their biggest fashion moments were this year!
Holland Roden's 2013 looks.

It's no secret that we LOVE Holland Roden. Sure, we liked her before April, but after watching her slay as MTV.com's Movie Awards Red Carpet correspondent, we fell even harder. Look at the plunging neckline on her black DKNY dress! While her Teen Wolf wardrobe errs on the preppy side, IRL Holland dabbles in menswear-inspired looks in feminine patterns and colors. She also sat front row at five New York Fashion Week shows, so we expect her 2014 style to be as edgy as ever.
Joe gets festive with a feline.

We interrupt your viewing of Beyonce's self-titled visual album for a (less) important announcement: Joe Jonas posted a photo on Instagram and *GASP* he's ... BALD. And no, not like, buzz-cut bald. He's, like, the-before-shot-of-a-Hair-Club-for-Men-ad kind of bald. Has the stress of the JoBros breakup taken a drastic toll on the middle brother's follicles? Was he wearing a hairpiece all along? Is he a 40-year-old man IRL who lives at home with his mother and has fooled us all into thinking he's actually a 24-year-old pop star?! *pauses for dramatic effect* No! (PHEW.) None of the above, thankfully. Joe Jonas is just a jokester with some really great Photoshop #skillz.
Bieber's new kicks?

Over the weekend, Justin Bieber shared a photo of some fresh white kicks with the caption, "New Adidas I designed." Say whaaat? Man, Bieber really IS following in Kanye's footsteps. First, he wears a kilt in his "All That Matters" video, and now he's designing shoes for Adidas? Swag. Unfortunately, other than this Instagram post, little information has been shared about this apparent collaboration. One source told us that they could possibly hit shelves in the spring, but nothing will be confirmed until after the holidays. HMPH! *crosses arms, pouting* We don't appreciate being teased, especially where shoes are concerned. Shoes and/or Justin Bieber, actually. (The lengthy lead-up to that short film for The Key was pure agony.)
