Justin Timberlake, Suit and Tie

We like to think of ourselves as a relatively insightful bunch here at MTV Style. Justin Timberlake drops a new single (his first solo dolo project since FutureSex/LoveSounds was released in 2006) called "Suit and Tie", and accordingly, we should expect whatever video comes with it will feature JT in a... *drumrollll* suit and tie! You don't need to be Nate Silver to predict that. And yet, we're STILL just as excited and slack-jawed and barely mustering up enough energy to fan ourselves with both hands to stall system overload from watching this 30-second teaser (JUST THE TEASER) of the "Suit and Tie" lyric video as if we had known nothing at all.

Paging Taylor Swift: you're not the only one giving furry friends a cameo in your music videos these days. Our girl Ke$ha also called out her Animals in the clip for her party anthem "C'Mon" (who are we kidding? EVERY Ke$ha song is a party anthem!) and the result in a total psychedelic trip. And in true form, the singer also undergoes a series of extreme costume changes, from a ho-hum work uniform (at "Awful House"...get it?!) to a glittery, furry, and embellished number topped off with a major 'tude. It might only be Friday morning, but thanks to Ke$ha, we're officially kicking off the weekend NOW. So join the dance party and let's break it ALL down below!

Even if One Direction hadn't diligently rolled out teaser after teaser after teaser prepping you to spend the entirety of today waiting for their "Kiss You" music video, we STILL wouldn't have missed it for the world. Just ONE glimpse of the campy silliness (a.k.a. GIF bait) of that is this musical short was enough to have us clearing out our calendars to spend the rest of the afternoon watching Harry, Zayn, Louis, Liam, and Niall embark on their "epic adventure." Also, to recap all the (many MANY) hilarious outfits the dudes rock in the video. That cue means, just as you expected, we're breaking One Direction's "Kiss You" music video look by look. LEGGO!

Girls Generation I got a Boy

Listen, we're already WELL aware that K-Pop group Girls' Generation knows their fashion stuff. This South Korean supergroup (literally- they've got nine members!) hit stateside last year with a splash, making their debut appearance on David Letterman... as well as showing off their SpiritHood steez. Furthermore, they've also made the rounds at international fashion weeks and have almost 10 million fans dissecting each and every one of their style-stocked music videos. No big deal. It's been a minute since the nonet (yes, that's the official name for a 9-piece group) last released their video for "The Boys", so clearly these ladies HAD to make up for lost time with their latest, "I Got A Boy." And did they ever! The band transformed the 5-minute clip into a kaleidoscopic streetwear explosion, working head-to-toe looks and statement pieces alike from Jeremy Scott for adidas, Lazy Oaf, Stussy, and more. The entire thing is a fashion whirlwind SO jam-packed with rad clothes (many of which are available to score yourselves), it's pretty much impossible to watch it just once. Ahem, not that we're complaining...

One Direction

As if anyone needed another reason to saddle up on the One Direction boy bandwagon, the Brit-Irish pop group has just released an adorably goofy teaser short for their upcoming "Kiss You" music video. The full-length video is scheduled to drop on Monday, January 7 at a presently unknown time. *feverishly sets alarms and reminders, drafts Out of Office auto-reply, deletes it* Between title slates that paint the video as a "blockbuster" and "one epic adventure," the 30-second preview shows Niall, Liam, Zayn, Harry, and Louis engaging in, in their own words, "pure stupidity" and, like, a bajillion silly costumes.

A$AP Rocky

Uh oh, KanyeA$AP Rocky's creeping on your kilt game! Just this morning the rapper dropped the new video for “LONG.LIVE.A$AP,” the title track off his forthcoming album. And yep, he’s wearing some slick bottoms throughout the clip that are decidedly NOT pants….and we’re not mad about it, either. The kilts are just a few of several outfits A$AP rocks in the majestic black-and-white vid, where he spends much of his time chilling on the throne, golden grin and all. These royal references and creepy castle setting kind of remind us of his King Arthur-themed shoot a while back for Complex, but before we even go there, we’ve GOTTA break down the clothes! So let's do this...

Taylor Swift wears a Bassike t-shirt in "I Knew You Were Trouble."

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.

Taylor Swift I Knew You Were Trouble fashion

First things first: we want to wish a HAPPY birthday to Taylor Swift! The pop star is celebrating her big 2-3 today, but she's switching things up by giving all of US a special present instead. Just mere minutes ago the singer finally dropped the video for "I Knew You Were Trouble." upon the internet, and we're 100% not exaggerating when we say we've already hit "replay" approximately 8 times. With a sad 2-minute introductory monologue and nostalgia-laden flashbacks, we're getting maaaajor Rihanna "We Found Love"- meets- Lana Del Rey "Ride" vibes from TSwift's new breakup anthem (not a bad thing!). Reeve Carney stars as her bad boy boyfriend, who transforms her onscreen persona into an entirely different person...from her pink choppy wig all the way down to her edgier-than-usual clothes. We're talking ripped t-shirts, fedoras, and not a single dress in sight! GASP. While you let all that sink in, check out our complete "I Knew You Were Trouble" fashion breakdown below!

Rita Ora Asher Levine

Proving that the pop star's year of domination isn't quiiiite over yet, Rita Ora just HAD to squeeze in one more project before 2012 comes to a close. The pop star dropped her "Radioactive" music video upon the world yesterday, and let's just say the ex-terrestrial clip is equally as killer as the Sia-penned track. It features not-so-subtle Illuminati references, spacey graphics, and out of this world outfits...including a key costume by our boy Asher Levine. The New York designer and MTV Style fave custom-crafted the molded skin jumpsuit for Rita, a statement look that takes cues from his own Spring 2013 collection. "We had been talking to Rita Ora's stylist for some time about possibly dressing her," he explained to us over the phone yesterday. "When they got the direction for her new video and they needed a super futuristic cyber-type of outfit, they came to us." Sci-fi has never looked so cool.

IO Echo's Ioanna Gija with Jeremy Scott.
Photo: IO Echo Instagram

We've been keeping a close eye on IO Echo. Ever since we peeped lead singer Ioanna Gika's too-cool-for-school style at CMJ, we've known this was a band with some serious fashion tricks up their (kimono) sleeves. Rocking a deep side part, bright blonde hair and the aforementioned Kimonos, Gika has a style all her own, part goth-witch, part LA it-girl. In the atmospheric new video for "Outsiders," Gika holds court in a stark, grainy world, industrial and spare. Her clear, bright soprano is haunting against the yellowing backdrop, lending the haunting song a sinister, minimal air. If you look closely at her, though, you'll see that there's nothing minimal about the video's style. If you follow the band on Instagram, you might recognize Gika's kimono from a recent snap she posted of herself with Jeremy Scott. That's right, the flowing, magical garment is the creation of the man himself, and it's incredible. It's hard to see the piece in its full glory in the "Outsiders" video, but there are moments when you get a little flash of something across the camera and you realize that this is no ordinary robe. For a moment you think it could be a trick of the camera, or something added in after, but knowing that the singer was given the holographic piece by the designer, we know otherwise. We're not entirely sure how the great J.S. managed to make a holographic kimono without it looking at all stiff. Indeed, the piece seems almost liquid, like Gika is draped in light. Watch the video after the jump, and let us know what you think of this Jeremy Scott stunner.

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