Anna Wintour shoots Kanye a glance that says, "I'm holding you to what we discussed last night."

Welcome to Fashion Fanfic, a new franchise we're starting here at MTV Style wherein we take great lengths to fabricate stories about the fashion world's most interesting characters. Don't misunderstand, we're not in the market to stir the pot or circulate gossip. We're doing this because we're SUCH fans of fashion that we have crazy fantasy plot lines somersaulting through our brains at all hours of the day and FINALLY decided we needed a place to put them. Enter North West. We'd toyed with the idea of launching this thing for a while now, but as soon as we heard that the name of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's first-born daughter, North West, was reportedly approved by Anna Wintour when the Vogue EIC had the couple over for dinner on the eve of the 2013 Met Gala, we knew we had our kick-off story.
Anna checked her reflection in the back of a large serving spoon. Come early May, spring is only just starting to roll around in New York City, which means heat, humidity, and time to swap in a stronger daily anti-frizz serum. The seasonal beauty switch-up is annoying but a necessary evil and one the Vogue editor-in-chief certainly wasn't going to take chances on tomorrow, the day of the Costume Institute Gala. Regardless, Anna wanted to make sure everything was in its exact right place before her guest of honor's arrival. She triple-checked the table settings her assistant had come over to do hours ago, displayed her collection of soul vinyls prominently, and was in the middle of zhuzhing her couch throw pillows when the doorbell rang. "There he is now! Just like clockwork. Fifteen minutes late," she thought to herself, heading toward the door.

This morning, Kim Kardashian gave boyfriend Kanye West the ULTIMATE Father's Day present: reportedly giving birth to their brand new baby girl and officially making him a dad just in time for the holiday! Ye may have his hands full at the moment with the much-anticipated release of his Yeezus album right around the corner, but he's also made explicitly clear just how excited he is to be a father. Knowing Yeezy, we think it's pretty safe to say that this baby girl is going to be better dressed than most fully developed humans, and the likelihood that much of her closet will be stocked with exclusive one-of-one pieces is extremely high. New momma Kim said it best during a guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this year, "If anyone knows Kanye, they just know how into fashion he is, and I think he’s going to have things, like, specially made. I don’t think hand-me-downs are going to work. I think it has to be, like, really fun stuff." We've heard scant of this "really fun stuff" since then, but if Mr. West is fielding suggestions, we have a few.
From finding the perfect dress to making sure you're prepared for any beauty emergency, we've been hooking you up with vital information to help your prom experience go as smoothly as possible (and maybe indulging in a few prom fantasy scenarios of our own, but who's counting, OK??). One aspect of prom that's sure to catalyze a wave of eye-rolls is the infamous PROM POSE. Its origins are uncertain, but its been plaguing photographic history for far. too. long. Here at MTV Style, we'd like to make way for the prom photobomb and have compiled a list of several varied tactics that you can mix and match throughout the special night.
THE "LOOK, MA!"

The first key to a great photobomb is recognizing the opportunity. Most of the time, it's pure luck, but since everyone at prom will be saddling up, taking group and couple shots, and trying to preserve the moment, you'll have a lot of chances to score a good one. Here, Kelly Clarkson expertly executes a classic—the "Look, Ma!"—peeking over with an open-mouthed smile and emphatic pointed finger while Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres suspect nothing.

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?
Fashion Week, especially Paris Fashion Week, is often regarded as a time for serious fashion (whatever that means). We beg to differ. From New York Fashion Week shade to London's wildest accessories to reimagining Milan Fashion Week with Beast Jesus, this has been a hilarious Fashion Month, punctuated with a giant, pizza-flavored exclamation point by Paris Fashion Week. Don't believe us? We rounded up our Top 5 favorite PFW runway photos that illustrate exactly that.
MARC JACOBS IN PAJAMAS

It's become markedly clear this season that Marc Jacobs is really having a pajama moment. First, there was his intergalactic loungewear party at NYFW and now he's closing out his Paris Louis Vuitton show in a full, floral set. WITH SANDALS. A hat tip to you, Marc. Stay cozy, bruh bruh.

There are two things in life that I've come to know to be true: I will always want to blow all of the rent money on Dolce & Gabbana, and I will always think the Beast Jesus meme is funny. Sure, D&G hit a bit of a rough patch (okay, a giant, festering ocean of backlash) with their Spring/Summer 2013 accessories, but this Fall/Winter 2013 collection is so beautiful in its attention to detail and exemplary embellishment work that I can't ignore it.
As far as Beast Jesus, I'm well-aware that this meme dropped off months ago (the last thing we heard was in December when the world's most infamous [also, worst] restoration artist Cecilia Giménez was actually making a killing off her own original artwork on eBay). HOWEVER, I will never NOT bust up laughing thinking about the cojones this lady had to have to not only follow-through on this wretched restoration job of Elías García Martínez's Ecce Homo, but then turn around and want MONEY FOR IT. !!!!!. It's too much.
Naturally, with the botched Jesus fresco so near and dear to my heart, I project it onto almost everything. Thus, the following images: a reimagining of Dolce & Gabbana's latest Milan Fashion Week offerings were they the result of a collab with Ms. Giménez. HAPPY FRIDAY!
Just as the curtain of runway glamour opens on New York City and street style peacocking invades sidewalks, the internet has officially bestowed a lump of GOLD onto our laps! This virtual gem comes courtesy of Veva Cava, who are serving up a refreshing New York Fashion Week palette cleanser with their new campaign for Viva Vena. Starring our MTV Style crush Lizzy Caplan, this clever, hilarious, and totally good-humored parody of "serious" fashion films hits all the right notes, starting with the faux "Best Fashion Film Festival Ever" award at the beginning to her oh-so-trendy flower crown idly floating away at the end (~*symbolism*~). These vintage typewriters, ribbon dancing, and Lizzy's empty expressions might be hilarious, but you know what's NOT a joke? Viva Vena's really cute clothes, which debut later this month. For now, watch the video in all its tongue-in-cheek glory below and just TRY not to crack up...
Rebel Wilson wears her Fat Mandi tee.

Oh HEY. Have we mentioned how totally, completely and utterly excited we are that Rebel Wilson is the star of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards?! (Rhetorical question, we know...). But now that she has a T-SHIRT LINE, we've found a whole new reason to love her. Yep, you read that right— the Aussie funny lady has just debuted a "t-shirt experiment" called Fat Mandi, which she blasted out to the world via Twitpic earlier this week. Not to be confused with her Pitch Perfect alter-ego Fat Amy, these tees takes cues from her character in the 2006-2007 Australian sketch comedy THE WEDGE. Mandi talked about starting her own fake eponymous label in this hilarious clip from way back when, and with these Fat Mandi tops splashed with, um, strategically-placed donuts and cupcakes, she's finally done it!
It's true: 2012 was THE year of self portraits, and if you're still messing up those personal shots, it's time to get it together, people! We're in 2013! Lucky for us, JWOWW and Snooki stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to create the ultimate guide to taking selfies, and we certainly learned a thing or two from their short-but-sweet video. The former Jersey Shore girls are now the stars of their own show (appropriately called Snooki & JWOWW), and together they are an unstoppable self-portrait-mastering force! They broke it down into four easy steps, so all us selfie amateurs can understand how it works. Let's get to it!
