If you're anything like us, Carly Rae Jepsen's high-flying breakup anthem "Tonight I'm Getting Over You" has comfortably weaseled its way into your consciousness, whether you realized it or not. But regardless of HOW the song got there, let's all agree that we're really, really glad it did. While the "Call Me Maybe" songstress's followup is just as earwormy as her 2012 summer breakout, her new music video for the track showcases some key changes taking place in Carlyland. The singer is slightly more grown up now, after all, and so is her wardrobe. The clip follows Carly and her BF (played by Brandon Gray) throughout the course of their relationship, and that means LOTS of outfit changes.
The Oscars are the biggest night in movies, to be sure, but they're also definitely one of the biggest nights in fashion as well! Who doesn't love seeing their favorite movie stars on the top of their game, both professionally and sartorially?! We absolutely do. We had two of MTV's style experts, MTV News' Christina Garibaldi and MTV Style Editor-At-Large Mary HK Choi weigh in on their favorite moments on last night's red carpet, from Jennifer Lawrence's romantic Dior gown to Anne Hathaway's Prada wardrobe malfunction. Were the best accessories on the carpet K.Stew's crutch (and accompanying crutch holding secret agent) and Quvenzhané Wallis' puppy purse? Watch the video below to find out all that and more!

Forever a babe, Zoe Saldana continued her red carpet reign at the Oscars tonight. Wearing a Alexis Mabille couture dress that was dripping with details, Zoe stopped to chat with Josh Horowitz and Janell Snowden about her glam look and its unexpected inspirations.
"I'm having a girl crush!" Janell exclaims, and we couldn't agree more. Twirling for the camera, Zoe shows off all the particulars of her pale grey gown. There's sequined appliques and lace cut outs on the bodice. There's floral stitching and there's a diamond encrusted belt buckle and there's a side bow and a slit and a train...*Phew!* Yet, somehow, Zoe's look is totally effortless. Her loose curls and super simple make-up allow the deets of the dress to really shine. But the outfit isn't even the best part! For that, you've gotta look to the girl's fingers. Rocking so much silver that her hands look heavy, Zoe gushes over the nine Neil Lane rings that dot her digits. It's quite a collection, complete with a sexy serpent, some classic oval cuts and, our personal faves, a few delicate knuckle bands. Zoe says all this bling is "honoring the pirate that's inside." If that's the case, well, yo ho, a pirates life for us!

OK, for those people who aren't aware of what's going on in this week's head-on collision between the fashion world and the California skate scene, there is a storm brewing on the internet alleging that Jeremy Scott ripped off beloved artist Jimbo Phillips for his latest season. Jimbo's father, Jim Phillips, is the art director of Santa Cruz Skateboards and has been since 1975. Both of their contributions to the skate and surf art world have been celebrated for decades. Their illustration style is so widely recognized by their fans that those who caught wind of Jeremy Scott's AW 2013 collection of flailing tongues, flying eyeballs, exploding brains, and grimacing brutes were immediately up in arms. I reviewed the Jeremy Scott AW 2013 Collection so refresh your memory before we get all deep up in this.
A$AP Rocky closes the Hood By Air Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week show.
We can't say that we explicitly knew that A$AP Rocky was going to be walking in yesterday's Hood By Air New York Fashion Week show, but we definitely had a feeling he'd be there in some major capacity. Rocky reps HBA in a very serious, born-from-blood type of way, from name-checking the label in lyrics — "Hood By Air, man, I started that" — to pilfering the brand's closet for nearly his entire "Long.Live.A$AP" music video wardrobe to creating the runway soundtrack for last season's Spring 2013 Hood By Air fashion show. Dat PMF made his allegiance and unequivocal support of HBA and the line's designer, Shayne Oliver, unmistakably clear by making an unannounced guest appearance, emerging from a cloud of dry ice fog to close out the Fall 2013 show.
A$AP Rocky chats us up at Black Scale.
Not like it's news to anyone who's ever seen or heard anything about him, but we just have to reiterate it: A$AP Rocky is one seriously fashionable dude. (Along with being a talented rapper, having a great ear for beats, and watching his premier album Long. Live. A$AP. debut at No. 1 on Billboard, of course.) The 24-year-old Harlem native doesn't just rap about fashion killas, he is one. And it's not just that he knows how to put together an outfit. What makes Rocky such a particularly devastating fashion one-two punch is the volatile combination of his keen eye for couture paired with straight-out-of-the-cradle streetwear savvy.

Celebrity sightings during New York Fashion Week are certainly not hard to come by (may we present Exhibit A?), but there's defintiely one star cameo that, in anticipation of the Big Apple's most stylish week, we were MOST excited for: Selena Gomez at adidas NEO's teen-curated runway show. Gomez is a brand ambassador for NEO alongside her on-again-off-again boo piece Justin Bieber, but Sel's involvement also goes a bit deeper than Biebsy's, designing pieces for the brand as well as helping pick the 30 teen-styled looks featured in the final show.
Just as the curtain of runway glamour opens on New York City and street style peacocking invades sidewalks, the internet has officially bestowed a lump of GOLD onto our laps! This virtual gem comes courtesy of Veva Cava, who are serving up a refreshing New York Fashion Week palette cleanser with their new campaign for Viva Vena. Starring our MTV Style crush Lizzy Caplan, this clever, hilarious, and totally good-humored parody of "serious" fashion films hits all the right notes, starting with the faux "Best Fashion Film Festival Ever" award at the beginning to her oh-so-trendy flower crown idly floating away at the end (~*symbolism*~). These vintage typewriters, ribbon dancing, and Lizzy's empty expressions might be hilarious, but you know what's NOT a joke? Viva Vena's really cute clothes, which debut later this month. For now, watch the video in all its tongue-in-cheek glory below and just TRY not to crack up...
A$AP Rocky talks "Fashion Killa" with MTV Style.
Today is the day! A$AP Rocky's long-awaited debut album Long. Live. A$AP has officially dropped. The full-length follow-up to his Live. Love. A$AP mixtape is every bit as ear-wormy as its predecessor, only this time, Rocky takes even more risks, is more experimental across genres, and as MTV Hive's Jeff Weiss so aptly put it, his "guest list is as stacked as Ocean’s 11" with appearances from all ends of the industry, from Skrillex to Santigold, Action Bronson to Florence Welch. As a crew of style junkies, one of our favorite tracks from the new album is (naturally) Rocky's "Fashion Killa."
Along with being an imperturbable ode to high-fashion, laden with halcyon, synthesized background vocals, the "Killa" record boasts 27 (!!!) sartorial name-checks in just under 4 minutes ranging from the expected (Alexander Wang, Rick Owens, Balmain) to the distinctly less so (Escada, Damir Doma) and a metric ton more (*takes deeeeep breath* Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga, Helmut Lang, Donna Karan, Cartier, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jil Sander, Oliver Peoples, Costume National, Visvim, Lanvin, Goyard, Isabel Marant, Linda Farrow, Dior, Vena Cava, Tom Ford, Thom Browne, Raf Simons, Versace). Not to mention, dude effectively and impressively ends a phrase with "Ann Demeuelemeester," setting the bar what some might consider impossibly high for 2013's edition of The Best Fashion Lyrics Of The Year. Lucky for us, the handsome Harlem fashion killa himself paid us a special visit to talk about the track, its lyrics, and a grip of our other burning style questions, and lucky for YOU, we caught it all on film for an exclusive video interview!
You think you know...but you have no idea. OK, so the line may have been borrowed from the early aughts TV show Diary (RIP), but you know what? The same thing could also be said for Azealia Banks and her new vid for Beats By Dr. Dre. As the newest member of the #beatsarmy, the Harlem rapper talks music icons, fave fashion designers, plus the real story behind her upcoming debut Broke With Expensive Taste ...and her answers aren't exactly what you'd expect. Clad in denim, platform boots, and a graphic red top, AZ says she doesn't want her album to be pigeonholed into a specific genre— rather, she's just going for authenticity, pure and simple. And although she claims that she doesn't have a particular musical inspiration, Azealia tells us she's taking cues from Beyonce in her personal AND professional life. "She's just so well-mannered and classy and well-poised. It's important to have those kinds of skills." Amen! Another interesting tidbit we gleaned from the 2-minute clip: Azealia's favorite designer is "boyishly feminine, clean, and really high quality." Who is it? Let's just say it's a FAR cry from seapunk. Place your bets...
