While we wait anxiously for the official "Problem" music video to debut (oh, the torture!), Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande continue to give us previews of the vid's seemingly 1960s-inspired mod theme. The latest sneak peek came at Saturday's Wango Tango concert, where Iggy and Ariana performed "Problem" in some seriously retro gear.
For her ensemble, it looks like Ariana borrowed the EXACT same mini and crop-top combo from the "Problem" video wardrobe. And, of course, she paired the outfit with her signature knee-high boots—only this time she went with one black and one white boot to mix it up. Twist!
Jennifer Lawrence at the 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' world premiere.

Back in November, Jennifer Lawrence was on a lot of red carpets. We got so used to seeing her every night in Dior and showcasing her new short 'do during The Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo tour that we practically forgot there was a time that she wore other designers and could put her hair in an updo. We were reminded over the weekend, however, when she wore a Jason Wu dress to the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere and debuted her new bob.
Jennifer broke her Dior streak with a shimmery blue dress from Jason Wu's Fall 2014 collection. She kept the rest of her look simple, wearing no necklaces or bracelets, just a ring and earrings. If you're going to temporarily ditch the company you're the face of, this is the way to do it, right? This dress would be hard to pass up, TBH. Plus, it's vaguely reminiscent of Mystique, the character she plays in X-Men. If this is a subtle homage we see it and we like it, Jenn. Even bigger news than her fashion? Her new hair!
Moms are great. They teach you how to do stuff. They tuck you in at night. They fix you soup when you're sick. And they bestow unto you the miracle of life (well, some of the time—adoptive moms, what up!). Moms are a lot of warm and fuzzy things, but "indisputably stylish" isn't a trait that's thrown around a lot. (See: mom jeans.) BUT if your mom is one of the following 9 celebrities, that's another story.
Aside from being super-famous before she was even born (*achem*), Blue Ivy Carter also gets to have one of the most fashionable women in the world as a mother. Mom Beyonce's wardrobe is just as Sasha Fierce as ever, just now with some added hints of maternal goddess.
HAPPY MOM JEANS DAY

Just in case you need a reminder: This Sunday is Mother's Day. While moms have their name associated with tons of good things, there is one stigma that follows them wherever they go. Yeah, we're talking about mom jeans. The denim style we all now associate with "mom jeans" has had a short, but full, history—in order to celebrate Mother's Day fully, we figured we should do a brief rundown of the pants. LEGGO!
Designer denim had its genesis in the 1970s, but it was in the 1980s that it really took off, beginning largely with Brooke Shields' controversial "Nothing Gets Between Me and My Calvins" ad campaign for Calvin Klein. Throughout the '80s the style shifted toward a tapered leg with a loose top, a "tight-roll" or "peg leg" style, if you will. By the early '90s, people were over the tight leg and into a looser fit on the bottom, resulting in, generally, what we would consider a baggy pair of jeans.
All one has to do to understand the popularity of the style is to glance at this cast photo from Beverly Hills, 90210. As Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and Kelly (Jennie Garth) prove, high-cut jeans with fitted legs were everywhere. These people lived in Beverly Hills and were stylish and rich—they were on top of what was going on in fashion, and this was it. It wasn't just moms who were wearing these jeans: It was everyone.
Rihanna at the 2014 NBA playoffs on May 9, 2014
Last night, former Instagram provocateur and #1 basketball fan Rihanna snagged a coveted courtside seat at the Nets vs. Heat game in Brooklyn to support her pal LeBron. "Nothing better than watching the KING live!!!!," she tweeted, though it was Rih who looked like royalty perched in the front row decked out in an embroidered Bernhard Willhelm track jacket and matching running shorts, which can be yours for a little under two grand (yeah, ugh, but bright side: It's easier to get your hands on a glorified sweatsuit that costs a few thou than courtside tickets to an NBA playoff game...) The Heat triumphed, undoubtedly because they had Rihanna rooting for them, but the real winner of the night was her floral Joyrich bucket hat.
Yeah, we're excited for this video.

Ever since Ariana Grande started dressing like Nancy Sinatra back in April, we've become increasingly excited for her "Problem" music video with Iggy Azalea. We assumed the vid would be filled with 1960s flair, especially since Ariana wore go-go boots to perform the song at the iHeartRadio Festival. There's also the fact that the mod aesthetic would make ANY music video spectacular.
Who wore it better?

Long before Pharrell and Lena Dunham came along, the word “Girl” or “Girls” had major pop cultural significance thanks to Elvis, who starred in the 1962 musical movie Girls! Girls! Girls!. Opening Ceremony paid homage to the King last year with a capsule collection which included a sweater woven with the movie’s title. Amazingly, both Lena Dunham and Pharrell—who have championed the word in their own work (see: Lena Dunham’s Girls, and Pharrell’s new album "G I R L")—got ahold of the sweater and, as if they have a psychic connection, wore it during interviews
When you think of Miley Cyrus, two things come to mind: her tongue and her platinum pixie, right? Imagine our utter shock this morning then, when Miley posted this picture of herself as a redhead. She's not only repping a new color but a longer length and bangs. If her tongue were, IDK, in her mouth I might've had to do a double-take. That's the ~transformative power of wigs~, y'all.
Nadia Aboulhosn, Tess Munster, and GabiFresh.
If you're unfamiliar with GabiFresh, here's a quick rundown: On top of being our very first MTV TJ, Gabi is a style blogger with a focus on fashion for "younger, trendier women sizes 14 and up." She shares the outfits she wears, where to buy the pieces, as well as general style advice. Yesterday, she posted a video that caught our eye—not simply because it features a Beyonce song, but because of its positive message.
Gabi recruited Nadia Aboulhosn and Tess Munster—fellow bloggers and models—to create #everyBODYisflawless, a new video for Beyonce's "Flawless." The video, Gabi explains in her post, is to let everyone know these ladies are supportive of one another and that you don't have to be a certain size to claim flawlessness.

One day Rihanna’s channeling Jada Pinkett in The Matrix Reloaded, the next she’s showing the Met Gala how to wear a crop top and a tiara. Last night at the Dior Cruise Fashion Show, Rihanna reminded us she can pull off absolutely any style.
