We might as well go ahead and officially proclaim this week as Miley Cyrus Week around these parts of the internet, because YOU GUYS. Her new single is finally here! And now that we've had a full 24 hours to truly digest her summer party anthem "We Can't Stop", we're back with an MTV News exclusive clip from the star. Our cameras followed Miley on the day of her single release, which included hitting up Ryan Seacrest in LA, visiting Twitter HQ in Silicon Valley, and obviously hanging out with fans. The MTV team also got the scoop from the singer herself on how her image has changed since her Hannah Montana days, and how her post-pixie cut re-invention is on her OWN terms. As Miley shares with the cameras in between outfit changes (she's wearing both a striped Marc Jacobs shorts suit and killer printed pants and black tank in the clip), "I am a self-proclaimed party animal, but I also am the hardest-working person you'll ever know." No argument there!
Whether you're going off of award wins (Grammys, VMAs, BET, check!), albums sold (8 million-plus since 1999, NBD) or even her indisputable fashion cred, there's no denying it: Eve is one seriously intimidating lady. While her insane list of accomplishments is enough to out-cool approximately 99% of the population, the superstar is actually way more relatable than her Wikipedia page would lead you to believe. We learned this recently when the Ruff Ryder's First Lady stopped by MTV to talk about her new album and how her style has changed since those "Gangsta Lovin'" days.

OK, so we ALREADY had a mild freakout when Selena Gomez's June InStyle cover finally hit our eyeballs last week—but you guys, the "Come & Get It" singer isn't through with her InStyle takeover just yet! In this brand new video, the magazine goes behind the scenes of the photoshoot and gets the scoop on her personal style and unexpected shopping obsessions, straight from Sel herself! She dishes on her favorite look from the spread, that amaze patterned Kenzo ensemble above, which she loves because it's SO different from her normal steez. "I never do prints in my personal style or red carpet, so I thought it would be fun for me to do prints for this," she spills in the clip, "I always like to change it up for different photoshoots."
Joan Smalls with Tom Ford and Karlie Kloss at the 2013 Met Gala.
Is there anything we love more than seeing our beautiful House Of Style hosts, Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss, looking STUNNING on one of the biggest—both literally and figuratively—red carpets of the year? NOPE. Lucky for us they absolutely shine on literally every carpet they walk, but we have to say that the twosome were in especially fine form at the 2013 Met Gala. Joan was on the arm of Tom Ford, who outfitted her in a stunning black lace gown with the most amazing combination of figure flattering cling and floor brushing draping that we think we've ever seen. Her beauty look was simple, with a dark eye and bare lip, but she made a nod to the gala's "Punk: Chaos to Couture" theme with straight, side parted ombre locks. Karlie, on the other hand, walked the carpet solo, but it was clear which house was her sartorial partner in crime: Louis Vuitton.
It's no secret that Emmy Rossum rules the small screen each week as Fiona Gallagher on Showtime's comedy Shameless (if you haven't seen it yet, start watching now!). However, if you've been lucky enough to catch the actress belting it out in flicks like Phantom of the Opera, then you know that she's also got a MAJOR set of musical pipes. And trust us when we say her vocal talent isn't just movie magic, either. Emmy's a classically trained singer, and her new album Sentimental Journey comes stocked with unique covers of classic songs spanning from the 1920s all the way to the '60s. Yep, what's old is officially new again, and a music project like this one calls for an equally retro music video look. Whether it's raiding flea markets or using old costumes from the eras to give the vids like "These Foolish Things" an authentic appeal, Emmy's a total vintage fashion PRO.

It'll come as no surprise that the love for Justin Timberlake is very much alive and kickin' in the MTV Style office. So when we jump online first thing in the morning and are blessed with a new performance of "Mirrors," this time on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, you shouldn't be shocked when I tell you the video circulated around our office quicker than a JT hip thrust. Sure, it might be a little surprising that our responses ranged from, "STOP EVERYTHING" to "I love today" to my own, "I'm drooling on my desk." But can you really blame me? The dude of my middle school daydreams is back in full performance force and here I am, quivering in my chair, not unlike my eleven year old self at my first *NSYNC concert. (Dad, how will I ever repay you for that night? The eve that still stands as the greatest date of my life? Bless you.)

There are stylish musicians, and then there's Miguel. This dude is a real fashion force to be reckoned with, thanks to his uniquely on-point uniform (pompadour, biker jacket, t-shirt, check!) to his rockabilly-meets-hip-hop onstage influences. It didn't take long before our eyeballs became used to seeing the soulful crooner crank up his trademark slick style in videos like "Adorn," but now he's taking it to the next level in the new vid for "How Many Drinks (Remix)" featuring Kendrick Lamar. Seriously, though, does it get any better than HEAD-TO-TOE Saint Laurent?! In this case, no way. We already know Miguel's a huge fan of Hedi Slimane, but rarely do we land the opportunity to witness the French label's Nehru collar shirts and Cuban heels in action, not to mention on one of our favorite musicians (accompanied by a swoonworthy soundtrack, no less!). Luckily, the singer's stylist Jasmine Benjamin was here to dish on ALL the super-luxe fashion stuff crammed into this glossy 4-minute clip. So get the scoop below!
The man himself, Ryan Lochte.
Those signature grills, the epic sneaker collection, that inescapable catchphrase (you know what we're talking about...). Yep, Ryan Lochte is truly one of a kind. Isn't it crazy to think that just a year ago we had absolutely NO idea about the Lochte mania about to sweep America during the 2012 Olympics?! Now the swimming champ is pretty much everywhere, chatting about the intricacies of Speedo design on Jay Leno, launching "Hardcore Workout" DVDS online, and firmly cementing "Jeah!" into everyone's vocabulary, whether we asked for it or not. Now the golden boy has taken his infamous Lochte-isms to reality TV with E!'s new series "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" Just before the show premiered on Sunday night, the swimmer and unabashed fashion enthusiast stopped by MTV to chat about his goal to spread "swimming awareness," how he prepped by watching The Kardashians, and of course, his plans for a clothing collection. We first heard murmurs of Lochte-branded shoes and "glitzy" accessories several months ago, and now we've got the official scoop on his design ambitions right here. Find out when we can expect the Ryan Lochte fashion line below!
Rita Ora at Elle Magazine's Women In Music celebration.

Aside from the one-two punch of her being arguably one of THE most adorable girls on the planet and having a seriously killer set of pipes, we here at MTV Style are head-over-heels for Rita Ora because along with all of that, she, too, shares our deep appreciation for FASHUN and the unique ways it intersects with music. One of these such junctions is Elle magazine's annual Women In Music issue and is a cross section at which Rita sits at the epicenter. Miss Ora fronts the May 2013 issue alongside fellow lady artists Adele and Alicia Keys, but of the three cover girls, Rita is the only one to have also performed at the mag's celebratory Women In Music event in New York City, April 10th. Martha Wainwright and Kelly Rowland also took the stage that night, but Rita stood out amongst this set, too, having been the only act to switch up her look explicitly for her performance. In a great fashion Easter egg moment, we were lucky enough to carve out a little chat time with Rita and Jason Rembert, her long-time stylist and the man behind her Elle Women In Music red carpet and stage looks.
