We can always count on the scene outside the Marc Jacobs show to be a little crazy, but this season the New York Armory was even more of a spectacle than usual, thanks to Scott Stevenson and his impromptu outdoor fashion show. The 24-year-old designer literally hit the streets this month, staging a renegade runway on the sidewalk that took place just as guests were filing out of Marc Jacobs. Inspired by the heat of summer and DIY to the core, Scott's Spring 2013 collection featured sheer blouses, cropped jackets, and conceptual cutout details- what he dubs as a new kind of "summer layering." The concept of a guerilla-style fashion presentation is nothing new, and we really feel that nobody did it better than X-Girl in 1994. In fact, it was Scott's friend Todd Oldham who originally made the comparison. But despite stunts like sewing models into their outfits on the subway ride uptown and planting the presentation directly on the sidewalk, Scott told us his one-man show arose organically out of the need to make a statement without many resources. "It came about from the necessity to create and not having any money to do it."

Diesel Black Gold

Riding high off the luxe leopards and leathers of last season and the rich metallic experimentations of the preceding spring/summer collection, Diesel Black Gold went for an extra specific inspiration this Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week. Creative Director Sophia Kokosalaki looked to the Josh Brolin '80s skateboarding flick Thrashin' (often alternately referred to as Skate Gang) as the cultural muse for this, her last collection with Diesel Black Gold. The movie, if you haven't seen it, takes place in '80s L.A. and centers around Brolin's character Corey Webster, his crew "The Ramp LOCALS" who are characterized by their feathered bangs and faded neons, and the run-ins they have with the other resident skate gang "The Daggers" - purveyors of many leathers and denims.

Asher Levine Spring 2013

Mini MTV Style history lesson: We've been obsessed with designer Asher Levine since we first chatted him up back in 2010. The then-22 year old was already designing outfits for Lady Gaga (HUGE!), and just last year he collabed with Mother Monster's fashion director Nicola Formichetti on a line of tees that sold at his pop-up shop in Soho. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, spring 2013 fashion week hit, and we found ourselves on yacht (yeah, a YACHT) with Asher himself discussing all the deets behind his latest fashion show—which, lucky for us, would include a live performance by one of our hip-hop faves, Le1f!

Christian Siriano New York Fashion Week

Unlike Christian Siriano's dark and vampy fall 2012 collection, his spring 2013 runway was filled with tons of light pink, baby blue and seafoam green pastel pieces that screamed summer. His line included everything from work-ready pearl-accented peplum dresses to button-up brocade jumpsuits to flowy landscape print frocks. Between the tutu silhouettes, soft high buns, and blaring remixed classical music during the show, the inspiration behind the collection was clear—it was ALL about the ballet. When we caught up with Christian backstage, he told us this season's looks were about being "romantic and pretty" and inspired by the American Ballet Theatre's Dream Ballet. "It's kind of an adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream—so very dreamlike, very whimsical," he said. "The whole collection really has that kind of ballet dancer feeling." Ah ha! We knew we were onto something.

It's no secret that we LOVE Nasty Gal here at MTV Style. From off-kilter back-to-school buys to early trend trys the Cali-based online retailer is a definite go-to around these parts. You can imagine, then, how ECSTATIC we were to be invited to the burgeoning brand's New York Fashion Week party - a celebration for both the Nasty Gal debut collection AND the launch of their print magazine Super Nasty! We EVEN got to chat with founder Sophia Amoruso (our collective idol and girl crush) about all the exciting news. #DEAD

Florence + The Machine played to a beyond-packed crowd on the last night of Lollapalooza 2012.

It seems like a lifetime ago that we were tramping around in the mud, testing the limits of our makeup, chatting up Scandinavian beauties about their performance fashion, and snapping some incredible street style, but really, it was just yesterday that we were in Chicago, fully immersed in the madness of Lollapalooza 2012. But it wasn't all fun and games--we also had some work to do. Ok, wait, that's a lie, even our work is fun, but you know what we mean. We had some serious sartorial investigating to do! You see, we set out on our Lollapalooza adventure with the express purpose to hear from some of our favorite musicians, both headliners and newer faces, about what looks they're loving, what they're playing in, and what they think fashion is all about. From Rita Ora's Kanye West leather vest, to Dev's denim babydoll dress, to Florence Welch's hotell room floor dress, we got to peek at the tags of some of our fave ladies looks. Also featuring Little Dragon in an adidas varsity jacket that we're totally coveting and Haley Reinhart showing off her boho classic rock look, our behind the scenes peek at Lolla fashions was the icing on the music festival cupcake. Watch the full video below!

Theophilus London launches LVRS x Del Toro slipper collaboration.

The day has come, my friends. MTV Style finally met THE Theophilus London. I know, I know. So awesome, right? This is how it went down: We stopped by The Black Tag in Soho for Theophilus' LVRS x Del Toro slipper release party (yes, that's what it was called) to check out the shoes he designed and, of course, to talk ALL-things fashion. We even brought a camera crew to document this momentous event, and let us just say this—Theophilus is one hilarious (and high fashion) dude! After we chatted it up, the doors opened and fans swarmed in to shop his limited-edition slipper collection and LVRS clothing line. The drinks started flowing, the DJ turned up the jams, things got RULL sweaty, and we had a grand ol' time. Watch Theophilus dish on all the deets about his LVRS x Del Toro collab below!

Iggy Azalea Fleury Rose

You'd think Iggy Azalea—the queen of cool "It"-girl style—would be sporting the most killer nail art at ALL times, but when the rapper stopped by the Tomahawk Salon in Brooklyn to hang with MTV Style and get her nails did, we found out that *gasp* she's only had nail art done once before in her life. "I've had nail art one time and it was actually the worst experience ever," Iggy told us. "Since then I've been a lover of nail art from afar." Well, we wanted to switch things up a bit, so we brought out one of the best nail artists in the biz, Ms. Fleury Rose, to help Iggy overcome her fears. Iggy obliged (*high five*) and told us she was filming a music video for her single "Murda Bizness" featuring T.I. the following day and wanted some tricked-out nails to go along with it. PERFECT.

Leah LaBelle.

Leah LaBelle has industry backing from superstars like Pharrell and Paula Abdul, sick style, and, most importantly, the vocals to back up all the hype. In other words, the girl is IT. This former American Idol contestant-turned backup singer-turned Youtube phenom (phew!) is now breaking out as a solo artist with her new R&B-meets-pop single "Sexify." Besides the track's irresistible soulful dance vibe, the video features Pharrell as a pizza boy, a Sex & the City-inspired closet, and an overflowing stack of Louboutin heels. Um, if that's not reason enough to love Leah, then we don't know what is. Get to know the singer (and master vintage shopper) below!

Patricia Field, Kat Graham

With her killer style and major personality, we've always suspected Kat Graham would make THE perfect shopping partner. And needless to say, we were totally right. We recruited the singer and Vampire Diaries star to show us one of her favorite New York haunts and fill us in on some style secrets of her own (so we can attempt to recreate her fabulous wardrobe). Kat met up with Patricia Field at the designer's namesake downtown boutique, where the two talked military-inspired style, favorite fashion moments, and the benefits of always standing out in the crowd. Tag along with Kat Graham on her Pat Field shopping trip in the video below!

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