Oh, hello. You thought because it's Saturday that Fashion Week would stop? Nope! #FASHUN never sleeps, especially not during #NYFW. Which is great news, because we have another day with Jarvis Derrell of #shehashadit breaking down Fashion Week street style for us. If you missed his Day One post, you can check it out here—otherwise, enjoy Day Two below!

How's everyone feeling after Day Two of New York Fashion Week? Are you warmed up and ready for more? Or are you totally burnt out already? Even if you're not trekking from one show to another, keeping up with all the trends and shows can be exhausting. I feel like I ran a marathon and all I've done is look at pictures of celebrities at Fashion Week today. I can't imagine how they feel, especially since they don't look tired, like, at all.
Last night was the launch party for the Peter Pilotto x Target collab that everyone has been eagerly awaiting. Our girl Lo Bosworth went simple in head-to-toe black, while Taylor Schilling wore possibly the cutest outfit I've ever seen. Her multicolored floral dress is totally springy and totally making me want to move to a warmer climate ASAP. As for men, Siva Kaneswaran hit up the Nautica show appropriately dressed in a sweater and scarf.

In case this whole clothing-and-accessories empire "thing" doesn't work out, Rebecca Minkoff clearly has a knack for soundtracking shows with stylish performers. Last year, Minkoff recruited Janelle Monae, who did menswear proud with a black-and-white, suspender-strapped look, to sing a few songs while the models walked. This year, the designer chose AlunaGeorge to rock her runway, and they did not disappoint—sound-wise OR sartorially.
Good news, everyone! It's Fashion Week again, and that means two things for us at MTV Style: street style and Jarvis Derrell. Last NYFW, we had Jarvis break down his fave street style looks the #shehashadit way, and we're bringing him back to do it again. I mean, how could we not? We pick up all our best hashtags from Jarvis, and after reading his posts, you too will be #EDUCATED. Below is his Day One dispatch, check back all week for more!
Yaaaaaaaassssss, Kiesha, yaaaaaaasssss!!!! Guuuurrrrlll, YUUUPPP, it's that's time again!!! You know it's New York Fashion Week, when you see all the nice quiet white girls with blogs go put on everything in their closets, take the 2/3 train down to Lincoln Center, and do everything possible to pretend to be surprised by a sensible swarm of photographers taking their photos!!!! YAAAASSSS, I'm obsessed!!!! Sooo excited for a full week of street fashion and the epic poses they go hand and hand with!!! Here are a few of my favorites!

The full frontal "my body is a canvas, therefore my eyes are dead" straightforward glance into oblivion, and the crown jewel of poses, the "broken baby-doll, heavy clutch, hard life, where am I" pose!!!!! EKKKKK, Kiesha, I'm just so excited gurl!!! #shesabouttohaveit #putonyourbestlisafrank #runtolincolncenter #illbethere #livingforallofit #nojudgement #justlove #haha #sorta #namaste
Lorde at the Grammys and models from Creatures of Comfort and Adam Selman's NYFW runway shows.

When Lorde hit the stage at this year's Grammy Awards, instead of grabbing our attention with a glittery thong or an elaborate set, the 17-year-old New Zealand export appealed to our digital tastes with her dark, dripping, dip-dyed finger art. We'd spotted similar styles on Michele Lamy, the eclectic wife, muse, and creative mind behind Rick Owens, and at Mara Hoffman's F/W 2011 presentation, but now it seems like this alternative form of nail art is turning into a full-blown trend.
It's only the second day of New York Fashion Week, but we've already caught painted fingers on the runways of designers like Creatures of Comfort and Adam Selman. CofC mirrored Lorde's Grammy nails by bronzing their models' fingers from tip to joint. Selman went with a cleaner, more graphic style, adding tattooed black bands on all five fingers, like a string of permanent midi-rings. But, lest you be deceived (and as is usually the case with almost any trend), in fashion, everything old is new again—and finger art is no exception.
The U.S. Olympic Team and a mysterious snow woman.

If you livestreamed the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony, you were probably unable to focus on Team USA's patriotic Ralph Lauren sweater ensembles due to a mysterious woman who was walking in front of them. Decked out in white and wearing an extremely ornate headpiece, she caused quite a commotion on Twitter. It wasn't because they were wearing white after Labor Day but because no one (with the exception of the Russians) had any idea who these ladies were or why they were dressed like extras from this SNL sketch. With the power vested in us (by Googling Russian fairy tales), let us explain.
Rihanna is often heralded as the queen of transformations, but Nicki Minaj doesn’t get nearly enough credit. Just look how flawless she looks on her recent Instagram spree with her natural hair, straightened and pulled into a tight ponytail, then subsequently into an elegant tri-bun—pretty sure she just coined that last 'do. (Though, Katy Perry's Grammys look comes pretty close.)
Taylor Swift for Keds.

IDK about you (~but I'm feeling 22~)(LOLJK), but when I heard that Taylor Swift's new Keds campaign was called "Bravehearts," I expected some kilts or at least a little swipe of blue face paint. A nod to the First War of Scottish Independence is decidedly NOT what T. Swizzle and her girl gang are all about here (but the ads are similarly uplifting?). Here's the major takeaway: There are a million ways to be brave. T. Swift and her band of merry sneaker-wearing pals reveal their acts of courage while modeling the brand's Spring 2014 collection. From learning a new language to dying your hair (and we're assuming revolution can fall under here as well), the ads encourage girls everywhere to just go for it. Jump in with both feet (get it?), if you will.
Get it while it's hot!
Picking out the perfect card for your Valentine can be a daunting task. Do you go for one that sings? Should you settle on sentimental or funny? If you go for funny, is the one you picked out, like, FUNNY-funny or is it funny-ha-ha? Meaning will they laugh out loud or feign a courtesy chuckle? So many questions! Only one real answer: get him/her/them a pizza Valentine. No, not a pizza in the shape of a heart, but one of these pizza-themed Valentine's Day cards that we rounded up for the occasion. We guarantee you'll knock this one out of the park. As long as they love pizza. (But, I mean, if they don't love pizza, you should probably consider that a red flag.)
IDK about you, but my favorite greeting cards are the ones that inspire a classic rock sing-a-long (and trust me, they're few and far between, my friends). Double-dog-dare your significant other to try and NOT and belt out their best Janis Joplin when they open up this card, and then make them pay you in kisses when they lose. Or money. Money's good, too.
Beyonce has you covered this Valentine's Day.

If rapper and pop star valentines won’t cut it for your boo, don’t sweat, Beyonce has you covered. The First Lady of Pop is releasing a Yours & Mine box set just in time for V-Day, and it comes with Beyonce-approved lingerie, so you can tell your loved one, “I just wanna say you’re mine.” We always knew Beyonce was thoughtful, but this box set is another reminder: For $40, you’ll get any combination of his & hers, hers & hers, or his & his undies and can choose from boxers and boyshorts emblazoned with “Yours” and “Mine” (the title of her song with Drake) in her album’s iconic pink font. (SERFBOARDT sweatshirt not included.) Just be sure to order by February 8 to guarantee delivery in time for the holiday.
