If you haven't seen Demi Lovato's "Made in the USA" music video, stop what you're doing right now and hit play. We're pretty sure nothing encapsulates the sunkissed skin, hair blowing in the wind, free feeling of summer in the good ol' U.S. of A. quite as sweetly as Demi's new video and track. (P.S. As Lovatics already know and are way stoked on, "Made in the USA" is also D's directorial debut!) And to add the rampant Americana cherry on top, Demi spends the entire vid clad in *drumrolllll* you guessed it! DENIM. The combination of it all—blonde-haired, blue-jeaned Demi and the super-sweet Aimee Teegarden #texasforever—is giving us so much shop-lust and totally convincing us that we need more denim in our closets. SO, naturally, we went online shopping, and now, we're going to share with you what we've found. ENJOY!

High-waisted jeans, thin leather belt, button-up shirt tucked into the high-waisted jeans. These are lyrics from Seattle-based Don't Talk To The Cops' "Gimme That '80s Butt" song, but they're ALSO an itemized breakdown of our daily uniform over hurr at MTV Style. You see, every era (and sub/counter-culture within that era, but for simplicity's sake let's just cap it at decades) has its silhouette: the '50s had poodle skirts, prim polos, and ponytails (try saying that three times fast!), the '60s ventured into mod, mini territory, the '70s had spread collars, macrame, and bell bottoms, etc. etc. ad infinitum. We won't be able to keenly discern the hallmark outfit shape of the 2010s until way after the fact, but one thing is for sure, and heavily underscored by DTTTC's track: we're borrowing so. much. '80s butt.
Calling all Directioners! We need to talk about the new trailer for the "Best Song Ever" music video that One Direction just dropped on Twitter. More specifically, we want to talk about this Harvey "character." The clip starts out panning over the Hollywood Hills with the iconic Hollywood sign now reading "One Direction," and a grizzly-voiced narrator hypes up the REAL launch of 1D's "Best Video Ever," starring Harvey, the above-right suited, bearded, pot-bellied "Studio Exec."
M.I.A. in "Bring the Noize."

We've had M.I.A.'s "Bring the Noize" music video on repeat ever since it premiered last week, and, um, it's obvious as to why. Insane beats + infinite incredible looks + a badass beauty game = a total dream come true. Between M.I.A.'s intricate braided 'do and pink coif, you'd think her hair was the star of the show, but we just couldn't peel our eyes away from her decked-out nails. Basically, no matter how many times we paused it to get a closer look, we still weren't sure what was happening on her digits. Luckily, London-based nail artist Sophie Harris-Greenslade (who did M.I.A.'s nails for the video shoot) tipped us off to the fact that her gold mani is super easy to cop for yourself, as in, YOU CAN BUY IT.
The thing about 2 Chainz (as so many of my conversations start) is: he's hilarious. How can you not find some place in your heart for an MC who spits, in complete earnest, "She got a big booty, so I call her 'Big Booty'"? Or who rolls up to the Grammys looking like Versace Dracula?? Whether the humor in his lyrics (and in IRL) is completely unintentional or keenly self-aware, to me, is irrelevant—I love him preeeeetty unconditionally. So, it's no surprise that when he dropped the music video for his "Feds Watching" track featuring Pharrell, I was instantly obsessed. The best part? It's teeming with not one, not two, but, like 10 über-chic, stiletto-clad models and a wealth of fashion lyrics (even if we're pretty sure he says "Como des Garçons." Just in case you're as stoked as us on all of the above, we illustrated our fave quotables with stills from the vid. Enjoy!

The quack is back! DJ duo Duck Sauce has finally rolled out a new single in "It's You," two years after "Big Bad Wolf" and three after their immensely popular "Barbra Streisand," and it's (expectedly) a banger if we do say so ourselves. The track itself hase been in circulation for a few weeks now, but yesterday, Armand Van Helden, A-Trak and their team released the "It's You" music video. Which brings us to why we, purveyors of all things style, are talking about it: it's ALL. ABOUT. HAIR.

Late last week, Robyn and Snoop Dogg released a music video for their extra-special duet "U Should Know Better" from Robyn's 2010 Body Talk. We may have been bumping the track for the past three years, but that doesn't make us any less excited for the new excuse to play it even louder (which is exactly what we did this past weekend). Now that we're back in the office, we're lending a more serious eye toward the video and its gender-bending concept. Robyn herself only makes one IRL cameo in the short, letting a mini boy-version of herself take center stage alongside Pernilla of 2faced1's Lady Snoop. The likenesses of both are uncanny, due mostly to expert styling, so obviously we're inclined to break down the fashion.

Whew, it's FINALLY here, y'all! Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" music video just dropped, and we've been watching this bad boy on repeat ALL DAY. Between her bombass grill, taxidermy accessories and dope onesies, there's just so much fashiony goodness wrapped up in one 3-minute video, we can barely handle it. Lucky for you, we pulled out every single outfit (which was styled by Simone Harouche!) so we can digest each look in all its amazing glory. So, let's get to it!

So, fashion icon Daphne Guinness, heiress to the Guinness beer fortune and best friend to the late Alexander McQueen came out with a music video. Entitled “Fatal Flaw,” the 5-minute video was directed by Nick Knight (who also directed Bjork’s “Pagan Poetry” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”), and the song will be available for download via the director’s SHOWStudio web site in ten days. As an aside, Knight’s also the dude who takes a TON of pictures of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Tasteful-nudes style.
Behold, a sneak peek of Miley's 'We Can't Stop' video!

Today might be Monday (womp womp), but it's definitely NOT any ordinary Monday, because this morning marks the premiere of Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" single! We've been counting down the days ever since the singer's huge announcement at the Billboard Awards, and now it's finally arrived. While the track is awesome enough in itself—after all, we've been waiting for new Miley music for what feels like FOREVER—it gets even better, because a music video is on its way! Yep, the star teased images from her forthcoming project on Twitter over the weekend, saying, "#WECANTSTOP #tWERK" alongside the image above.
