Shia LaBeouf on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'.

Just putting it out there, but after our last epic trip through Shia LaBeouf's facial hair history, we kiiiiind of thought he was done. Finished. Finito. After all, where can you really go after Shia Stubble Stage 4, AKA the seriously grown out Full-On Woodsman look?! Turns out there's a LOT more room for growth...and we mean that literally (pun definitely intended). Last night the actor hit The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, where he debuted his brand-new shaggy 'do and caused a communal jaw-dropping session this morning. Sure, he's got the same ringlets as he did when we last left him last year, but this time they fall almost to his shoulders! Paired with his sleek suit, the unkempt hair reminds us a little bit of a movie star version of Buffalo Bill, don't you think?
Could Katy Perry's new style be inspired by John Mayer?

Katy Perry and John Mayer have been making headlines lately as one of the music community's biggest maybe couples of the moment. Neither Katy nor John have commented (yet?) on the notable spike in time spent together, but ever since they were photographed together leaving L.A.'s Chateau Marmont, the prospect of "JohnKat" has definitely been raising eyebrows for the past month. Now, it seems Perry and Mayer are sharing more than just time and memories - they're sharing style sensibilities, too!
If you've laid a finger on the interwebz this week, you're probably MORE than aware of Miley Cyrus's drastic new bleach blonde pixie haircut. Not only has she been tweeting pics of it at a break-neck pace that seems almost hourly, but fans and fashion blogs (what has two thumbs, y'all?) alike are going nuts over the "Party in the U.S.A." singer's new look. Our pals at Buzzworthy made an argument recently that the punkier baby blonde 'do might be channeling Gwen Stefani - a conjecture we can totally see, especially when she breaks into the bright red lip look. But this see-through shirt + printed leggings outfit from one of Miley's most recent photos is screaming ROBYN to us!
Boho Rock temporary body tattoos.

Okay, so technically these Boho Rocks are "face and body" tattoos. We concede that in the model shot for the flower version, they illustrate an example of the tiny strip tatts being used as faux bracelets, but let's be real. With a name like "Boho Rock," these were clearly made with the intention of providing an alternative to the skinny headbands worn bohemian-style across the forehead. It's a decent idea since many ladies cite that their aversion to the dome pieces are the way they flatten hair or make weird crease marks. The Boho Rock tatts get you a similar look without all the fuss. But, like, guys... This is a forehead tattoo. If you squint your eyes really hard, yea, it kinda looks like a headband, but at the end of the day, you're temporarily joining the leagues of these forehead-tattooed brethren. *sucks teeth in second-hand embarrassment*
These are 12-inch tall platform shoes by Buffalo.

We have EYES. We've seen platforms before. From Nicki Minaj to Taylor Momsen to Kerli we've been witness to our fair share of high-rise kicks, but these Buffalo Classics certainly take the cake. With a 12-inch heel and 11-inch platform, these black flatform sneakers will make their wearer a full FOOT taller for the equally tall price of $599.95. While they're still shy of the Guinness World Record-breaking 16-inch stiletto heels that hold the title of World's Tallest, I think we can all agree that these are still some MONSTER shoes.
Alexa Chung wears overalls on July 15, Feb. 9 and Aug. 1.

OK, we need to talk. Whenever we see Alexa Chung do anything we totally take note because, duh, she's a fashion "It" girl. She's always on the forefront of trends and trying new things and blahdy blahdy blah, but sometimes we're a wee bit skeptical of the next big thing she's trying to pull off. And lately, that means overalls—real, actual, TLC-style oversized overalls (See also: That House of Style segment on colored denim.) OK, maybe they're not that crazy, but still! We haven't seen these bad boys pop up since the '90s (well, if you don't count Miley Cyrus' denim jumpsuit thing from a few weeks ago), and we're kiiiind of not quite sure if we're ready for it to come back. In mid July, Alexa sported vintage-y denim dungarees with a statement necklace and black tank. She accessorized with ankle espadrille wedges, a snakeskin bag, and circle sunnies. We're sorta feeling this retro vibe, but these overalls are bordering on culottes territory, and yeah.... *shiver*

Eeeeee! Calling all Mariah Carey Stans and purveyors of the 50K+ views on this CLASSIC supercut of Mimi's best runs and riffs! Our Lady Mariah doth dropeth her new Rick Ross + Meek Mill-assisted single today! MC released the saucy, LEGGY single art for the track earlier this week. Mariah looks pheeeeenomenal in a warm gold, strapless dress with a flirty side cut-out and side slit up to there. Her waist-length locks are sleek, straight and a soft honey color, and she's backdropped against a crackling amber glow. It's no secret that Mimi loves her GOLD, so in honor of the song's debut and this sultry cover snap, we're taking a look back at her other golden album art outfits!
Design company p+g makes a nose iPhone case.

Sorry to get all graphic on your Wednesday afternoon, but we have to talk about this. "This" being p+g design's HANA nose iPhone case. We realize that iPhone cases are getting bigger and crazier, but this has to be the most whackadoo combination of the two that we've seen yet! We know the times are a'changin', but we're still not sure if we're ready to pick this nutty case from the lot. Would you use this nose iPhone case?
This Jil Sander paper bag costs $290.
First off, WUT. Jil Sander makes a paper bag? *side eye* When we first peeped this bad boy on the internetz, we thought it was maybe some sort of superhuman version of a bento box (newsflash: it's not), but when we actually took a closer look, we realized that this duder is supposed to worn as, like, a real handbag. *GASP* Listen, we know bags designed to look like lunch sacks aren't anything new, but there's one large difference between this Jil Sander piece and every other one we've seen—the price point. This sucker retails for—drum roll—290.67 buckaroos. YEP. FYI, it's ACTUALLY made out of paper (coated paper, that is) so this is a f'real paper bag, not even just a lookalike, for nearly $300. Of course "Jil Sander" is inscribed across the front to show that this isn't straight from the grocery store aisle, but there's no lining, no closure, or anything to differentiate it from, you know, other normal paper bags.
Kigu's Dinosaur and Fox tails.

Listen, guys. We're no strangers to cosplay here at MTV Style, and the discussion we're about to open on these Kigu animal tails should in NO way be considered a Judgey McMeanieFace finger pointed at the portmanteau of costumes and role-play. In truth, we LUHHHH it and find it fascinating. We merely want to alert you, the inquisitive public readership of this here style community, to the fact that these exist. And not just in the dinosaur and fox iterations you see above. Hook yourself up with a bushy squirrel tail, an S-curve lemur look, or the slightly more subtle lion steez, depending on whatever you fancy most. The question is: would you want to?
