Agenda Long Beach

All photos by Chrissy Mahlmeister

Trust me, I know hearing the words "trade show" and "Long Beach" in the same sentence probably makes you want to gag, but Agenda ain't your typical dad-filled convention center escapade. It's the place to be if you want to trade business cards with some of the coolest kids in the surf, skate and streetwear industry, and by some strange stroke of luck, half of a booth needed to be filled at the last minute. A friend of a friend mentioned my business (Rad Nails) to one of the organizers, and I was asked to join the invite-only list of brands two weeks before showtime. To put it lightly: I was stoked.

Fail Proof 4th of July outfit

Illustration: Joshua Covarrubias

Yep, it's the time of year where we all stand outside and stare at the sky while we sweat/shiver/get rained on for the sake of cool explosives. Oh, and celebrate our country's independence. But with every Fourth of July comes the inevitable question, "Ugh, what am I gonna wear?" Well, since we're BFFs and all, we did the hard part and put together a fail-proof ensemble that'll be sure to get you through all those outdoor festivities in one piece. Not only is it sweat-proof, rain-proof, non-flammable (seriously), and drunk-proof, it's also comprised of pieces you probably already have in your wardrobe. Let's break it down.

Met Costume Institute Goth

Dang, dudes. We were 100% sure that nothing could top last year's “Punk: Chaos to Couture" Costume Institute exhibition, but yesterday The Metropolitan Museum of Art revealed that their next fall spectacle (the first in seven years!) will be called "Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire." Translation: All goth everything. Yasss.

From October 21 through February 1, the exhibition will feature around 30 "mourning ensembles" from the 19th and early 20th centuries that will "reveal the impact of high-fashion standards on the sartorial dictates of bereavement rituals as they evolved over a century," according to The Met's press release. Judging by the images, we're expecting to see tons of high-fashion veils and breathtaking, sculptured, Victorian-era gowns, which were the original inspiration behind most modern goth looks today. (I mean, where do think all those corsets came from?)

Pharell Williams

There’s no doubt, Pharrell Williams is one of the most influential people in the world—c’mon, anyone who can get the globe on their feet and ~happy~ is a pretty powerful dude. But alas, there is proof that the legendary Skateboard P is just like us, a mere mortal! He proved this last night while being commemorated as an entertainment icon at the Time 100 Gala. Pharrell seemed to be hiding more than whatever it is that's under his hats. Look closely. Is that a Band-Aid on his chin?!?

Lady Gaga gets ready to take flight.

On the eve of ARTPOP, Lady Gaga wore ten different outfits to debut her flying dress in Brooklyn last night—and LBR: that HAS to be some sort of record. Even for Gaga, a woman who seemingly changes clothes every time she exits a building, ten different outfits over the course of several hours, for just one event, is pretty impressive. I mean, hello! That is, like, almost as many costume changes as she had in the music video for “Applause" alone, and that wasn't even live.

The multi-platform artRave event, which included a gallery tour with a 100-inch replica of Jeff Koons’ Gaga sculpture, an 8-song performance, and a full demonstration of that much-hyped flying dress, celebrated creativity and Lady Gaga’s keen ability to overpack. JK! It was all about the creativity. But seriously, let's talk about all those outfits.

Gather round, Fashion Fanfic readers. It's time for another installment of made-up celebrity conversations. Last night, Justin Timberlake and his lovely wife, Jessica Biel, showed up to the premiere of Justin’s new movie, Runner Runner, wearing basically the same thing. The handsome couple both hit the red carpet in verrry similar tuxedo suits. Here, we imagine what getting ready in the Timberlake-Biel household might have been like that night.

Justin anxiously tapped his pointed patent dress shoe on the bespoke, marble-glazed floor and let out a hefty sight. "JESS! Girl, come ON. We only got four minutes to save the wor— before we have to leave for my premieeeereyyeah!" he yelled with a slight staccato. For a moment, he thought about texting his co-star, Ben Affleck, to tell him they were running late, but he quickly remembered that Jennifer never lets him take his cellphone to events in an effort to help him "be more present."

"COMING!" Jessica hollered back. "Have you seen my black, gold-trimmed mini-briefcase purse? I can't find it anywhere!"

Teen Wolf Young Hollywood Awards

But seriously, how cute is the 'Teen Wolf' cast?

Every week here on MTV Style, we dish on our favorite Teen Wolf episode ensembles, but sometimes we like to see what the cast wears in real life. As it turns out, the entire crew (seriously, EVERYONE) is the cutest dresser to boot. Need proof? Last night at the Young Hollywood Awards, the cast arrived in the freshest summer-inspired duds, and, you guys, they even coordinated! Awwww. We don't know if it was planned, but the ladies opted for super cute floral ensembles while the boys went for solid staples that complemented them perfectly. Obvi we need to take a closer look!

In case y'all have been missing out on one of THE biggest events on the internetz right now, the O Music Awards have been live-streaming more than 50 bands, a drumathon, and even CATS right here in NYC since 7 P.M. last night. This bad boy is going on for a full 24 hours, so there's still time to catch some more fun stuff before time runs out, but whew! We MUST talk about all the fashion-y goodness that has happened thus far. Everyone from the Jonas Brothers to Hanson to Kate Nash have graced the OMA stage, and we need to discuss their ensembles ASAP.

1.) THE JONAS BROTHERS' MESH CARDIGAN, CANADIAN TUXEDO AND SUPERMAN SHIRT MEGA COMBO

The Jonas Brothers ALWAYS sartorially slay it when it comes to their performance outfits—but we have to give them extra props each bringing their own unique spin to last night's ensembles. Nick went completely neutral in a seemingly-normal, monochrome slate gray outfit, but upon closer inspection, we see that the front panel of his cardigan is actually made of mesh. Whoaaa. Joe killed it with a chic spin on the Canadian tuxedo by wearing super dark denim on the bottom half with a medium wash chambray shirt on the top. (Also, we're still not used to that shaved head, bye.) Kevin sported our favorite look of the day, though, which was a graphic blue and white Superman print shirt paired with dark skinnies. #WERK

Beyonce Jay-Z

All together now: awwwww! Beyonce and Jay-Z are basically THE couple of the year, OK fine, century, which means we can't help but get teary-eyed every time we see them being total BFFs in public. What REALLY gets to us, though, is when the dopest duo around also sports coordinating duds because, um hi, we're total suckers for a good fashion sense. Last night, the couple celebrated Jay-Z's 40/40 Club 10-year anniversary in New York, and of course they matched in the coolest way possible. Bey stunned in a white Roberto Cavalli Spring 2013 cut-out dress with a simple gold cross chain necklace and gold clutch. For her beauty game, she sported chic, deep-parted blonde strands, barely-there makeup, and burgundy nails. Jay wore a summery gray suit with a white shirt, black shoes and light gray pocket square that complemented Beyonce's ensemble perfectly.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
