Kanye West was honored last night in New York for one of his favorite things. No, not music! FASHION. The Accessories Council presented the 33-year-old artist with Stylemaker of the Year Award for personal style and influential fashion at the Accessories Council Excellence Awards (last year the award went to Lady Gaga, so you know they're looking at heavy hitters here!). So what did he wear to the event? Hot accessories, of course. While his black suit and white crisp shirt looked streamlined and minimal, Kanye really spiced up his outfit with his footwear — a pair of loafers featuring artistic images of naked women on them. Love them or hate them? We kinda love them.

Drake performing at the 2010 Voodoo Experience on Oct. 30.

Excuse us, we'd like to take a moment to discuss the amazing style Drake possesses. It hit us over the weekend, when Drake performed at the Voodoo Experience in New Orleans, looking amazing, fine, and downright sexy in a jean jacket, black tee, black cargo pants, and black sunglasses. It's odd that we just wrote that a jean jacket and cargo pants could look sexy, since the idea of it reminds us of a weird hillbilly. But on Drake, the outfit looked hot. Don't you agree? That's not to say we weren't too upset when he decided to strip his jacket off ...

Justin Timberlake kept his grooming pretty mild this year. His hair and facial fuzz always looked scruffy, a look that shined when he made the rounds promoting The Social Network last month. But it's all gone now! Just last week the singer/fashion designer/all-around hustler stepped on the set of his latest movie I'm.Mortal with a shaved head. He looks so fresh! So clean! So ... OK, we'll just say it: sexy. And we've seen this before. Justin's latest hair change is just another in the long line of Justin Timberlake's Ongoing Hair Transformation. Here, we take a look at the past 13 years of Justin Timberlake's hair, from *NSYNC curls to a military buzz cut to scruffy and fuzzy to what we have now — hot, shaved, and sexy. Take a look below, and tell us, what's your favorite Justin look?

The Situation's evolution of abs.

The 'Jersey Shore' cast has come a long way since the show first premiered on MTV in December 2009. And their styles have evolved as well. As we wind down from last week's finale of season two, we're taking a look at the transformations of each star. Today we take a look at Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. How did he go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was the least modest member of the Jersey Shore cast from day one, shamelessly flaunting his eight-pack abs — or, uh, Situation — for all to see. And considering he's made a career of it, it's no wonder he hasn't stopped. At all. Whether he's at a red carpet event or just walking down the street, The Situation will pull up his shirt and show off his abs in any situation possible. In that sense, he has stayed the same. As for his style — that also showed minimal change. He still wears sneakers to formal events, as well as Ed Hardy and other printed tees. Take a look in this gallery of The Situation's style transformation and see for yourself.

+ Do you think The Situation's style has gotten better?

Justin Bieber at Variety's 4th Annual Power of Youth Event in Hollywood on Oct. 24.

Justin Bieber looked like he had Halloween on the brain when he attended Variety's Power of Youth event last Sunday in Hollywood. The 16-year-old pop star looked adorable in an orange and black G-Star Raw flannel shirt, which he wore with black pants and sneakers. You can snap up Justin's shirt online for $120, only it comes in orange and gray instead of orange and black. But if that price is a little out of your budget, check out this more affordable version by Aéropostale. The checkered woven shirt has the same colors and pattern as Justin's top, but costs just $14.99, which means you can stock up on these preppy basics on the cheap for fall.

When Kanye West debuted his short film, 'Runaway,' over the weekend, he did not skimp on the fashion. Not only did he enlist notable costume designer Martin Izquierdo to create the unique, custom feather wings Selita Ebanks wore throughout the film, he also called upon famed fashion designer Phillip Lim to custom-design all the menswear he wore himself. Today we caught up with Phillip, who just returned to New York from China, where he was showcasing his latest collection. We spoke to him all about Kanye and how the designer came to be in the rolling credits at the end of "Runaway" as part of the film's costume design. Find out everything about Phillip Lim's designs for Kanye from Phillip himself, below.

How did you get involved in Kanye's project?
Kanye came into our SoHo store, and our sales director was in there at the same time. They got chatting, and Kanye was put in touch with me.

Did you review a storyboard or anything before putting together any of the looks?
No. I just spoke verbally with Kanye about it.

Are all of the clothes that Kanye West wears in this film by Phillip Lim? What other looks are by Phillip Lim?
I designed several pieces for Kanye, and then consulted on the color palette for Selita’s outfit.

Did you contribute anything to Selita's look, like the gold breastplate or headdress?
Mainly the color palette.

How did you end up with this color palette?
They were just colors that I was interested in. I am really feeling colors that exist in shadows – nonobvious [colors].

Are the clothes Kanye wears from any of your collections? Are they available to the public?
No, they were all custom-made.

How much input did Kanye provide into the final looks?
It was his film, so he made the final call on what was used.

Did you dress the dinner guests or ballerinas?

Did you work closely with the art director, Vanessa Beecroft?
I didn’t actually meet her, but I very much appreciate her work.

Were you on set during the filming?
Kanye and I worked remotely, so I didn’t actually visit the set.

What do you think of the film, now that you've seen it?
I think it is very culturally interesting. It brings together music, fashion, and art, which isn’t a new concept, but it is also something which is quite challenging to do.

Would you like to do more film work?
Absolutely. I am very interested in working more in film.

What are you working on now?
I have many collections to design. I have just spent 10 days in Beijing for a big show we were doing over there, so I have a lot of catching up to do.

The 'Jersey Shore' cast has come a long way since the show first premiered on MTV in December 2009. And their styles have evolved as well. As we wind down from last week's finale of season two, we're taking a look at the transformations of each star. Today we take a look at Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio. How did he go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

Another day, another Jersey Shore style transformation. While Sammi and Snooki both visibly changed a lot in the year since the show aired on MTV, the boys weren't as chameleon-like. Take, for instance, Pauly D. His style has remained quite steady this year, despite more attention and more red carpets. One of his favorite looks has not wavered one bit — a plaid shirt, jeans, and high-top sneakers. The only difference? He's tanner. How Jersey of him! But take a look in this gallery of Pauly D's style transformation and see for yourself.

Do you think Pauly's style has gotten better?

The Justin Bieber beauty machine isn't slowing down anytime soon. After teaming up with Nicole by O.P.I. to design a line of nail polishes, the teen pop star will launch a unisex fragrance named My World next month, WWD reported today. However, instead of coming out with traditional bottled perfume, Justin's taking his signature scent to accessories, releasing My World in fragrance-filled wristbands and dog tags.
That means teens can wear the fragrance on their wrist or around their neck, and each piece will hold the perfume scent for, supposedly, at least a year. The collection will include four designs — Icon, Energy, Tour, and Web — so you can mix and match, for $10 each. Justin's smells land in Wal-Mart stores starting Nov. 26, just in time to stuff your holiday stockings. Though, we're not sure we want to wear a Justin-smelling bracelet to our next holiday party. Just saying.

Chris Brown's new music video for his latest single, 'Yeah 3X' dropped today on MTV.com, which features Chris Brown at a block party dancing his feet off. His moves include backflips, front flips, and side flips, all of which show off his ability to still dance even in midair. But what we're looking at, of course, is his style. Chris Brown had three-and-a-half outfit changes — half because he took his shirt off at one point, so it's not a full change — proving that sometimes block parties requires multiple kinds of outfits. His looks ranged from a sweatshirt to a button-up shirt to a salmon-hued blazer, Kanye-style. Check out all of his looks below.

Chris Brown joins the navy! Here we see him in a navy sweatshirt, dark blue denim, white sneakers, and white tee underneath his hoodie. Oh, and as you can see, he likes to wear sunglasses, even at night.

This look is definitely more buttoned-up. Chris Brown pulled on nice black slacks, a vest, red skinny tie (with a tie tack!), white button-down shirt, and black and white sneakers.

While belting out his lyrics on the fire escape, Chris Brown went for his third outfit change of the video: a hot pink/salmon colored blazer (similar to the one Kanye West wore during Fashion Week), with a white tank underneath, white shorts, and several gold chains. As you can see, even though it's night here, he decided not to wear his sunglasses in this scene, like he did before.

And the shirt comes off! Same outfit, no shirt. The shorts and blazer combination is actually quite preppy, but sans a shirt, preppy he is not.

This close-up scene confirms he is shirtless.

You know who had awesome style in this video? THE LADIES!!! When Chris Brown swoons over a girl on his block during the video, we couldn't help but love the woman's cute teal blue romper. It's a cute summer outfit!

The backup dancers also looked great. While they matched with Chris Brown, they definitely held their own in black pants, a white tank, and black suspenders. Way to steal the attention, girls!

Jared Leto performing on October 15, and white zipper pants from Yoox and Hot Topic. Black zippers from Etsy.

Dying to get into Jared Leto's pants? We are, too! Literally. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman performed at the mtvU Campus Invasion Music Festival last week in Florida wearing a head-to-toe white outfit that included a button down, ripped graphic tee, and super-tight white jeans embellished with funky black zippers. The distressed style of these punk pants looked perfect on Jared, don't you think? Here are three ways to get his hot pants style:

1. Try these Lip Service White Bondage Skinny Jeans from Hot Topic ($59, HotTopic.com), which feature the same slim fit and black zipper detail as Jared's.
2. LJD Marithe + Francois Girbaud ($180, Yoox.com) offers another fun option for white pants, and they are a slouchier fit for guys who need a little more breathing room, if you know what we mean.
3. Or, get creative and snap up a few black zippers on the cheap ($8, Etsy.com) and sew them onto white jeans for a truly unique finish.

+ Do you like guys in white pants like Jared Leto?

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