Take notes, boys. One Direction has just served up a catalogue's worth of model dude outfits for fall at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. We've watched this 5-piece boy band grow from meticulous color-coordination to the loose use of denim as a wardrobe unifier. This latest red carpet and stage showing, though? That's just exemplary laid-back guy styling at its best. Let's start with 1D's TCAs arrival. Every dude showed up in a pair of jeans of varying washes and silhouettes (stone-washed relaxed fit for Liam, dark resin and cuffed for Louis, white and tight for Zayn, vintage wash and slim fit for Niall, and basically painted-on for Harry). The guys' shoe game is out of this world, and almost every one of them wore an excellent transitional jacket, save Harry who chose instead to wear a collared shirt unbuttoned just below his diaphragm and a wide-brimmed felt hat. Very John Mayer, no?
Miley and Liam hit the red carpet, last night and last year.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth stepped out together on a red carpet last night for the first time in over a year, to promote Liam's new movie, Paranoia. The last time this happened was last year when the couple attended the Australians In Film Awards & Benefit Dinner. Miley wore a long-sleeve, black, cutout Zimmermann dress, and for Liam: a black Ermenegildo Zegna suit. They were newly engaged and looked almost too young to even know what marriage was—Miley had a blonde bob, and Liam was clean shaven and evening casual in an semi-unbuttoned suit shirt with no tie. Fast-forward a year and my, oh my, how things have changed.
Another day, another Robert Pattinson Dior Homme photo! I mean, we're totally not complaining, but it feels like Dior has been rolling out RPattz's debut fragrance campaign oh-so-slowly all summer long—we're just DYING to see the full thing already! Also, a commercial would be nice too. So far, we've seen Robert looking 'dorbs in a bathtub and snuggling with a lady in bed, but in his latest image, the Twilight star is perched on a rooftop decked out in THE finest duds. He sports a slim-cut black suit with a crisp white shirt and out-of-this-world sunnies.

Everyone give up a slow clap for A$AP Rocky wearing old school Tommy Hilfiger on stage for the Wantagh, New York stop of his and Wiz Khalifa's Under The Influence Of Music tour. The fashion killa has made a name for himself as such by regularly sporting the flyest, most current threads like custom KTZ, Raf Simons, and Ann Demeulemeester just to name a few. For his run on Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour, he wore Hood By Air high-end streetwear hot off the runway on stage in almost every city (BTW, we hear you can win a free, Rocky-signed HBA shirt from VFiles *WINK*). But now, it looks like he's turning to the archives for performance togs, pulling out and repping Hilfiger's iconic rectangular blocked logo.
Drake's Dada meme gets a shirt in the "Yolo Polo."

Remember how back in May, photos started emerging from Drake's "No New Friends" video shoot with DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross? Between the helicopters, champagne in the hot tub, and Khaled's vaguely retirement chic wardrobe, the video looked a lot like a YMCMB/Maybach Music Group parody of Behind The Candelabra. But the MOST wave-making part of the whole thing was a behind-the-scenes photo of Drake wearing a bumblebee color palette Dada ensemble and shooting Rozay a round-the-shoulder look with this bizarro swag-creep gait. The photo took the interwebz by storm, erupting into a full-fledged meme, and after almost three months since its inception, it's still living strong thanks to this here "Yolo Polo."
Brooklyn (also, WORLD), get ready! Kanye West is performing at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, helping break in Barclays Center for its very first major awards show. Yeezy joins KAWS and Lady Gaga for the history-making 30th VMAs to perform "Black Skinhead," making history of his own by officially tying Madonna as the artist with the most VMA performances—come Sunday, August 25, Yeezus and Madge will be neck-and-neck with seven total. In honor of Ye's momentous return to the VMA stage and long history with the show, we took a look back at his previous performance outfits.
2004: CANDY PINK COLLEGE DROPOUT

Kanye today is larger than life, but even Kanye circa 2004 had a big VMA debut, performing a medley of chart-toppers from College Dropout—"Jesus Walks," "All Falls Down," and "Through The Wire"— with legendary Chaka Khan. The MC reworked his signature look at the time, a pink polo with the collar popped, for the occasion, opting instead for a striped Pepto Bismol pink button-up, pink satin tie, a black velveteen suit, and a big ol' smile.
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.
A still from One Direction's "Best Song Ever" behind-the-scenes video.

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.
