Yasssss. Just in time for the weekend is a brand new video from NY-based rapper Le1f. The video features Le1f as the only man around (and alive?) dancing atop of ruins, and crossing swampland in a way that is supes elegant in a deserted and abandoned forest setting before making his way to a mysterious light on the other side of the woods. Excited about this video and all of the looks styled by Andreas Aresti yet? Then let's get started!

Who's that mysterious hooded figure in the olive green jacket? And what's up with that light?

Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea

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.

There's an avalanche of new Michael Jackson music coming out, and I honestly couldn't be more excited about it! The King of Pop has soundtracked many the poignant moment in my life: learning the alphabet, my very first Halloween party, and even that time I befriended a killer rat. All along the way, MJ has been a beacon of iconic style from his bellbottomed Jackson 5 days to his signature band jackets, so in honor of the forthcoming release of Xscape, we're taking a look back at his most stylish music videos.

THRILLER

You can't talk about MJ's style without talking about the "Thriller" jacket. That bright cherry red. That angular V-shaped panel. The fact that it's the style centerpiece of one of the greatest music videos of all time. This is the definition of iconic.

Michael had a knack for striking separates (something he picked up in his youth, perhaps?), and his wardrobe for ground-breaking music video "Billie Jean" was no exception. If you think a pink shirt and a bow tie is soft, try wearing them with an all-leather suit. Now who's soft, HANH?

Arcade Fire, Andrew Garfield

Arcade Fire have rolled out some unforgettable visuals for their fourth album, Reflektor—including bobbleheads, Kenzo outfits, and two music videos just for the disco dance-along title track—but their latest one is poised to be their most important. The video for “We Exist,” a track about a man coming out to his father, sees The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield playing the protagonist and wearing drag.

In the 22-second teaser for the video, Garfield walks through the crowd at Coachella in a white lace dress, blonde wig, and pink face paint reminiscent of Zoro’s mask—which is a look that AF frontman Win Butler has worn throughout their Reflektor Tour. The scene, spliced together with an emotional Garfield shaving his head in his bedroom, is not only scored by live audio from Arcade Fire’s Coachella set, but was also shot at the festival. While playing Coachella, Butler told the crowd, “The right to marry anyone you want is a human rights issue.”

Little Mix

Ladies, if you're looking for a female-only army to join, I know the group for you. Little Mix is looking for recruits and you don't have to wear camouflage. YAY. The video for "Salute" just came out and I would not want to fight these four in battle. I mean, their combat uniform is leather and various chains. That's tough.

Their look comes courtesy of British fashion designer Nikita Karizma. The goal, according to Nikita, was to give them "empowering leather-look black outfits" and "raise the fashion stakes for the title track of their second album." Peep their looks below!

Jesy is in a leather bodysuit and thigh-high boots. Considering how well she dances in this outfit, I am confident she'd be able to go to battle in it.

Beyonce is having a DAY. (Granted, it's probably pretty amazing to wake up every day as Beyonce.) This morning, she was revealed as the cover of Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2014 issue. She also ~officially~ released her music video for "Pretty Hurts." And now, she's letting us premiere a behind-the-scenes look at the filming of that video with commentary from Bey herself and "Pretty Hurts" director Melina Matsoukas.

The two drop knowledge about the pro-social aim of the video: a call-to-action for girls and women to think differently about how they view beauty. It's a message that we're behind in full—inner beauty will always shine the brightest—so we're supporting her #WhatIsPretty campaign with some of our favorite inspirational Beyonce quotes about beauty and self-worth. We'll be printing these out poster-size for our offices and homes, and we suggest you do the same.

In the teaser for Katy Perry's "Birthday" video, the singer transforms into five different birthday party entertainers. Oh, one caveat—they're the world's worst party people. Katy is so transformed by her makeup and (surprisingly?) good at accents that when the video began I didn't ~get~ that it was Katy in disguise. In retrospect, I'm embarrassed. At the time, though, I was embarrassed for the aging showgirl.

The dancer's name, of course, is Goldie. This isn't your run-of-the-mill slap on a wig, and glasses transformation (we're looking at you, Drake)—Katy has on elaborate makeup and prostheses to make not only her face, but neck look wrinkly. She's got some bright blue eye shadow, a bold red lip, and it looks like a brush hasn't touched her hair in years. It's quite a different look from the wistful old lady she played in "The One That Got Away" (more on that later).

Then there's Yosef Shulem, an MC, who is willing to tell jokes at funerals. For Yosef, Katy has on layers of makeup to make her neck and chin look chunkier, a curly wig and matching strong brows, and, my personal favorite, chest and finger hair. No detail was skipped, you guys!

One Direction

How's it going, Directioners? Enjoying your Friday? Enjoying One Direction's new video where they share clothes and morph into one another? Me too! After teasing the video all week on Instagram, it's finally here. While Harry wears zero things (zero!) on his head, there is other fashion to be discussed. Mostly how all five dudes are in the same outfit for the majority of the video. Do you think they all shared one sweater or were there numerous? If there was only one, how much can I buy it for? Inquring minds need to know.

The sweater in question, of course, is a gray crew-knit. While we only get full-length shots of Niall and Harry wearing the sweater, their bottom halves are also styled the same, in tight black jeans. Niall also debuted his new 'do in the video. While he's shown it off on Instagram, this is the first time we're seeing it in motion, fluttering in the wind. His old coif was way too gelled to flow freely like that, TBH.

The three other guys are also wearing the sweater. While it's plausible that Louis has capris on, I think it's safe to assume that all have black jeans on out of frame.

We've kept track of what Harry Styles wears on his heads for a long time around these parts. I keep an updated list of every hat, headband, or mask that touches his flowing brown curls—that's not for work, BTW, just more of a personal thing. Anyway. While his luscious locks usually fly free in One Direction's music videos, it looks like his headgear collection may have infiltrated the video for "You & I."

In case you weren't aware, there's a new 1D video dropping tomorrow. The band has been teasing the video—Harry's clip went up today and within 10 seconds he has three different things on his head.

There's the furry hat that he pairs with a shearling-lined coat.

Sky Ferreira

We already knew before we hit play that Sky Ferreira’s new video for “I Blame Myself” would be all about the clothes. For her new My Night, My Time single, Sky teamed up with online retailer Ssense and System magazine on what could be the future of pop music: the shoppable music video. Ssense and System have made a few changes to the format since they released the first shoppable music video with Iggy Azalea. In the new format, you shop after you watch—rather than as it plays—which doesn’t take us out of the video’s world, which is, in this case, an abandoned lot. Of course, the clothes, front and center, do not disappoint.

In the opening scene, the camera tricks us for a moment into thinking we’re staring at the back of a dude before it does a 180º and we see that it’s actually Sky. She’s styled in a Givenchy star patch leather bomber jacket, a Christopher Kane hoodie, Saint Laurent crystal-embellished tights, a Saint Laurent biker skirt, and an amazing pair of black-and-white basketwoven Acne kicks with beaded flower Simone Rocha socks.

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