If you've seen Taylor Swift's new video for "I Knew You Trouble," then you already know that the pop star wears MANY different outfits throughout the five-minute clip (click here for the complete breakdown). But while the majority of her fashion changeups are quick- blink and you'll miss them- one item in particular stands out the whole way through. OK fine, in ADDITION to her pink wig. We're talking about Tay's black and white t-shirt, which she dons during her monologue in the beginning and again as the music video winds down. Courtesy of Aussie brand Bassike, this simple crewneck comes stamped with a giant black dot in the middle and a raw hem, giving a cool twist to your plain white tee. The only bad news? If you want to cop Taylor's identical top yourself, it'll cost you.

If there's anyone who truly understands the saying "if you got it, flaunt it," it's Kristen Stewart. Sure, this is the same girl who prefers jeans and Converse to pretty much anything, but when it's time to get glammed-up, well, she pulls out ALL the stops. And you don't have to look very far for proof! Just yesterday the actress turned out for the premiere of her new flick On The Road, wearing a hot-off-the-runway Erdem dress and showing that her love for sheer is still going strong. K.Stew even made some changes to the original version of the frock by abbreviating the hem to a thigh-grazing mini (it was originally knee-length) and adding neon Christian Louboutin heels. One thing she DID decide to keep this time around: the pale blue satin bralet, and some seriously short shorts.
Leather overalls in Nasty Gal's December look book.

Given the skyrocketing trend status of leather and overalls as individual fashion things, we had a feeling, deep at the bottom of our gold-plated hearts, that these mammothly head-turning style elements would soon join forces. Nasty Gal, one of our go-to e-retailers, featured them prominently on Australian model Bambi Northwood-Blythe for their December look book, and while this was the first thing to REALLY get our gears turning on the full-body statement piece, this is definitely not the only, or even the first, instance of this eyebrow-raising style.
"Image is powerful" is a statement that is as undeniable as it is ubiquitous. How we perceive and how we are perceived by others drives much of what we do. Our success, confidence, and happiness are directed by this authority that we can’t even touch. It’s a force. Knowing all this, how do we even begin to CONSIDER dealing with it? Well, believe it or not, we turn to a supermodel! Not long after sweeping the runway in America’s most-watched fashion show, Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell decided to trade lingerie for lectures. The beauty AND brain unpacks her career for TED’s “Be Fearless” conference with an honest and inspiring discussion about the power of image not only in her industry, but in all of our lives. We IMPLORE you to watch the whole talk. It/she is so awesome. But in the meantime, check out some of our favorite takeaways!
Lady Gaga in Moscow on Dec. 10.

The earlace phenomenon is back, y'all! The earring-necklace hybrid, which connects a chain between both earlobes to create—you guessed it—a necklace, made its first major appearance on Rihanna in 2009, but now it's making an oh-so-bold return to popularity. Just yesterday we spotted Lady Gaga in Moscow sporting a layered chain earlace complete with safety pins that hooked onto her ears (ouchies!). She finished her look with an embellished fur-covered military hat, a sheer cut-out black dress, and oversized sunnies. (Also, please note that her hair is straight-up HIGHLIGHTED with glitter. NBD.) Now, should we be scared about this trend resurfacing? Well, that's up to you to decide! We've noticed huge retailers stocking these bad boys left and right, like this classy earlace set from ASOS (above), which includes studded chandelier earrings complete with a detachable neck chain. (Getting three accessories for $70 is kind of a steal, no? *shrugs*)
Welp, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are dating now.

Okay, Internets. I think it's time we rip off the band-aid. I think it's time we just accept that Taylor Swift and Harry Styles are dating now. They've been spotted together pretty much every single day of this week and are even holding hands (also, spending nights together in hotels, but listen, I'm just not emotionally there yet). One Direction fans, I FEEL you. Times like these are hard. But if you really love something, let it go, right? Plus, you can always find an upside to any situation, especially this one.
For one, Swift even admitted to Cosmopolitan UK that the one thing she doesn't understand about relationships is "how to make them last." AND the holidays are a reeeeeally tricky time to start a new fling, what with the combining of gift-giving expectations and undefined relationship parameters. There's a lot of potential to slip up and hurt feelings. If you're twiddling your fingers maniacally right now, we don't blame you, but if you're going to sack it up and try to support the newly dubbed "Haylor" couple, here are some gifts you could send Taylor and Harry's ways this holiday season. Kill 'em with kindness, right?
It's pretty hard to compete with the behemoth of awesomeness and innovation that is the Domino's Pizza Tracker, but don't say Pizza Hut isn't trying. What started as a jokey Facebook post to Pizza Hut Canada's page last August has now snowballed into a full-blown IRL eau de pizza bottled fragrance. No, really. Pizza perfume is a thing that actually exists now, thanks to the folks at Pizza Hut. But what we want to know is: would you actually wear it?
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen teamed up with Damien Hirst on a collection of backpacks.

It must be fate. Just this morning we were digging ourselves out of an internet wormhole of retro Mary-Kate and Ashley Youtube videos, and now we've gotten wind of some seriously jawdropping Olsen news that we absolutely HAVE to talk about. The actresses-turned-CFDA winners have debuted a brand new capsule collection of super luxe backpacks in conjunction with Damien Hirst. The Row designers and the contemporary artist collaborated on nine different styles of the carryall, embellishing the label's signature black patent Nile crocodile leather backpack with Hirst's quirky-cool designs. It's an awesome concept, sure, but just like all the other swoon-worthy pieces from The Row, the bad news is, it's gonna cost you. A lot. If you thought the Olsens wouldn't dare to top the $39,000 price tag on their other (controversial) backpack, think again...because they totally went there. The limited-edition collection of bags is listed at online design store Just One Eye for "price upon request." We called, and it retails for a cool $55,000. Gulp.
Around these parts of the Internet, Chrissy Mahlmeister is our resident Commander-in-Chief of all things Jared Leto. From his recent absence of eyebrows to his one-time mullet and difficulties with knits, she has it all committed to memory and organized in pristine little Oxford manila tab dividers. HOWEVER, given my preoccupation with the style world's bizarro underbelly (Ex. A, B, and C) and a deep appreciation for makeup artistry, I'm borrowing the reins momentarily for a very important question. Which is more impressive: Jared Leto in lady makeup for his upcoming role in Dallas Buyers Club OR this lady (a.k.a. selfOblivion) who made an INCREDIBLE tutorial for Jared Leto makeup?
Ke$ha performing on the 'Today Show' last week in NYC.

If there's one thing we've learned about Ke$ha over the years, it's that this girl LOVES her accessories (see: studded hair, epic gold earpiece, and consistently over-the-top music vid style). Get ready, because now the singer's putting this signature "more is more" approach to good use with a brand new jewelry line that represents pretty much all of the above. She's teamed up with Charles Albert on a mixed-media collection of rings, bracelets and necklaces featuring everything from arrowheads to sharks to skulls. She's EVEN taking cues from that teeth headdresswith an "edgy and raw" piece made out of metal cast human teeth. Wait...what?!
