Just when we thought Nicki Minaj was leaving her bold and bedazzled Harajuku-inspired ensembles behind, the rapper/singer/American Idol judge/soon-to-be fashion designer appears on Teen Vogue's June/July issue looking like her old, decked-out self! She channeled Barbs in THE most fashion-y of ways by sporting long, platinum waves, a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label corset (complete with embellished bows!), and a lace Chris Benz top and white tutu. She, of course, wore her signature pink pout (which, in case you didn't know, was the best-selling MAC Viva Glam lipstick of all time, NBD) with a touch of shadow on her lids and mile-long lashes. Work that playful pose, girl!
Rita Ora & Cara Delevingne: besties together for Hunger TV.

We're super jealous of Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora. They're glamorous, gorgeous, hilarious, AND BEST FRIENDS. Seriously, what could be better that having an awesome, amazing life AND getting to share in all the fun stuff with your bestie? Charmed. Lucky for us, we get to revel in their awesomeness thanks to Hunger TV. The two have been teasing their Hunger collab since January, when Rita tweeted an image from what we assumed was a photoshoot, but it now appears that we might be getting a video from these two ladies next week! If that's not exciting enough, Rita released a new video for her song "Facemelt" via Hunger TV today, and, let's just say it lives up to its name, especially in the fashion department. Rita gives some major couture vibes in the video, decked out in a sheer bustier, Chanel-channeling jacket, and to-die-for accessories.
Justin Bieber's 'The Simpsons' cameo and the 'V' Magazine spread it was modeled after.

Here at MTV Style, we're card-carrying Justin Bieber fans (and/or apologists, depending on your perspective), so you better BELIEBE we'll be tuning in as Biebsy makes a cameo in this Sunday's episode of The Simpsons. Titled "The Fabulous Faker Boy," the episode centers around a *drumrollllll* musical performance. (Doh.) "He tries to get into a talent show that Bart is playing piano in, and they won’t admit him," Simpsons executive producer/writer Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly. Unlike Lady Gaga's entire dedicated episode in Springfield, Justin just makes a quick appearance, but WHAT an appearance it is! I mean, are you seeing this animated wardrobe?!
Selena Gomez on the cover of "InStyle" magazine.

AHHH, IT'S HERE! Selena Gomez's InStyle magazine cover has finally arrived! Hot on the heels of Selly's own "Come & Get It" music video release just last night, InStyle has revealed that Miss Gomez is their June 2013 cover girl. Beaming in a black, navy, and cobalt strapless jumpsuit by Stella McCartney, Selena fronts the summer issue looking warm-weather appropriate but also chic and sophisticated. Jewel tone Fendi bangles provide the color palette for the mag's cover lines, but the candy-colored summer FASHUN does not stop there!
Carey Mulligan in Flaunt.

We're seriously running out of words to describe the opulent, flawless style Carey Mulligan has been rocking lately to promote her equally-extravagant new film The Great Gatsby, but the actress' brand new spread in Flaunt Magazine—while still lavish—lacks any hint of the film's roaring '20s vibe. We love yuh, Gatsby, and we DEFINITELY LOVE Catherine Martin's costumes, but this is a welcome change. Carey poses in The Fabrication Issue in a variety of looks ranging from elegant and simple to artful and directional. Our favorite part of her look? Mulligan sports a severe, hard-edged bob with baby bangs that look veritably sculpted to her head. This fashion-friendly take on helmet hair is nothing like the more unfortunate looks at elementary school picture day. Trust. In our favorite ensemble from the shoot, Carey looks almost Victorian in an ultra-structured white gown with roses blooming from the neckline and an enormous bejeweled choker that resembles the branches of a gnarled old tree. Her makeup is understated and even mutes her features somewhat, with super light eyebrows and pale lips washing her out, but not completely.
Miley Cyrus scores #1 on 'Maxim' Hot 100 list.

Let's all give it up for Miley Cyrus, you guys! In between fanning Met Ball rumors and nabbing consecutive covers for ELLE UK and V magazines last week, the singer has managed to land herself the coveted #1 spot on Maxim's Hot 100 list! Seriously, though, this is NO easy task. Each year the men's publication pits hotties from the music, film, and fashion worlds against each other, and this time around, Miley (and her Smilers, obviously) stole 2012's crown right out from under model Bar Rafaeli. Not that this pop star really needs to prove her hotness, or anything. I mean, can we all talk about this photo above?! Posted over the weekend, the image shows her channeling a Bond girl bombshell in a metallic gold swimsuit, tons of glimmering jewelry, and sultry, straight-on gaze. She may have been #68 on the list just last year, but Miley's come a long way since then... that's for sure.
Cara Delevingne is Miss 'Vogue''s first cover girl!

The secret's out, y'all! British Vogue officially has a cool little sister in the newly-launched Miss Vogue magazine. And let's be honest—who better to front the glossy's debut issue than Cara Delevingne? After some Twitter teasers this week about the mystery cover girl, today is the day we can finally feast our eyes on Cara in ALL her pretty, pink glory. The notorious industry goofball, onesie queen, and 2012's Model of the Year is smiling wide in bold red lipstick and dressed in a custom Topshop Unique ensemble. The 20-year-old has been a longtime favorite of the U.K. retail giant, walking in the Fall/Winter runway show as well as being a key player in the brand's tech-savvy catwalk production. While Topshop's boundary-pushing goods are nothing new, here Cara's throwing back to the ultimate middle school style trick by layering her sequined cami over the basic gray crewneck (remember those days?!).
Miley Cyrus for "V" Magazine.

We may STILL be reeling off of Miley Cyrus' TWO ELLE UK covers, but the platinum pixie-headed girl isn't stopping there on her quest to plaster her mug all over your newsstands. Hot on the heels of the ELLE UK release, V Magazine has revealed Billy Ray's little girl as their Summer 2013 cover girl. Not once, not even twice, but THREE. TIMES. *wipes sweat from upper lip* PHEW!
Behold, Miley Cyrus' second 'ELLE' UK cover.

We thought it couldn't get much better than Miley Cyrus' killer ELLE UK cover, which dropped last week and shows the singer giving major face in a Lanvin blazer (and not much else). But you guys, it just did! A second cover circulated over the weekend, courtesy of her very own Twitter, and proves what we've always known— it's impossible to have too much Miley in our lives. The pop star blasted the black and white image out online to her nearly 12 million followers on Friday with the caption, "@ELLEUK sometimes covers are hard to pick. Guess well just go with 2 covers! #2isbetterthan1." That's for sure. Featuring a nude Miley with her eyes closed, Saint Laurent necklace held to her lips, this achromatic portrait is a definite contrast to the in-your-face fierceness of the first. The photo might be minimalist, but nobody can deny it's JUST as dramatic.
A$AP Rocky in the May issue of 'GQ.'

It's no surprise we have a thing for A$AP Rocky. Not only does that PMF have a GORGE smile and two killer albums under his belt, but he also has a serious affinity for fashion. *heart melts* He's been pretty candid about his obsession with certain designers, and it looks like mainstream fashion mags are (finally!) starting to pick up on A$AP's sartorially-savvy self. In the May issue of GQ, A$AP traded in his black leather and gold ensembles for something a bit more summery--yacht clothing. I know, I know, you're like, "A$AP Rocky? In nautical wear? How can it be?" But trust us--it happened, and it's UH-MAZING.
