Karlie Kloss for Donna Karan New York and Cara Delevingne for DKNY spring campaigns.

Donna Karan, are you reading our minds? Not that we're complaining or anything, because the New York designer has cast not just one but TWO of our favorite models in her spring campaigns! Double whammy, much? This season Karlie Kloss reprises her role as the face of the uber-elegant Donna Karan New York label (she repped the Resort 2013 line as well). Walking barefoot along the ocean and clad in an embellished pink spaghetti strap dress, the ex-dancer looks every bit the part of a beachy ballerina in this gorge campaign. And hey, matching pretty evening wear to the sunset and seawater doesn't hurt, either....
Meanwhile, Cara Delevingne's got the city slicker thing down on lock in the ads for the cool sister label DKNY. The model might be from London, but if you ask us, she totally nails the part as a New Yorker in these '90s-inspired shots.
Miguel talked to us about his eclectic style.

Before I jump into that one time I got to interview Miguel in the backseat of a moving van (no, that's not a euphemism for anything), I do believe a hearty congratulation is in order. From the bottom of our glitter-laden MTV Style hearts, we're sending mad love and props to the souful crooner because he just racked up FIVE Grammy nods last night including Song of the Year for his falsetto-dripping single "Adorn." It doesn't come as THAT much of a surprise, though, since Miguel's been riding high on critical acclaim for his Kaleidoscope Dream sophomore album since its release in early October. The sound of the record is unique in its ability to feel simultaneously nostalgic and cutting-edge fresh, and we can't help but notice (you know, being a fashion blog and all) that his style has morphed considerably since his debut record All I Want Is You and feels a lot like his new sound. Fortunately for us, Miguel obliged our requests to talk his ear off about fashion influences and runway trends and leather chaps while he tried to get a meal in despite our abrasive journalistic pushiness (the man is a SAINT, guys). Now, we're going to share the information and thoughtful words we mined from him with you!
Miley Cyrus in her Versace sunglasses yesterday.

We first suspected something was up when Rihanna rocked the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last month in vintage Chanel circle-shaped shades, and now Miley Cyrus confirms it: round sunglasses are officially experiencing a resurgence, people! Sure, we're all for square, oversized, and classic aviators, but Miley's old-school Versace sunnies that she posted last night have single-handedly convinced us to invest in our own John Lennon-inspired frames. The singer tweeted, "80s Versace" #obsession" and she's definitely not the only one in love with the retro accessories. But while Miley's limited-edition version might be a little hard to score ourselves (trust us, we've tried!), there are PLENTY of near-identical versions out there if you're craving some instant gratification.

Picture this: you think it's going to be just another day of class/work/hanging out... but suddenly your lazy morning becomes one of those crazy, ridiculously busy situations where quick errands turn into never-ending hikes all over town. Yeah, we've been there. And it's times like these which REALLY prove the wedge sneakers' status as the ultimate closet secret weapon. After all, where else can you find a shoe that goes with pretty much any outfit, is versatile enough to dress up or down, AND so comfy you can wear it all day and night sans blisters? Nowhere! We're always looking for ways to switch up the staple with the rest of our wardrobe, and these stylish bloggers are here to help. Check out their takes on the look below for three more reasons to be thankful for the sneaker wedge this season.
Snooki at her fragrance launch on Nov. 13.
Guys, Snooki is really, really close to fashion world domination. Like, we thought her accessories, flip-flops, handbags, and sunglasses lines were enough to prove that she was a TOTAL #bosslady, but as it turns out, that was just the beginning of her style endeavors. Last week, she launched her second fragrance and first-ever nail polish collection, and this week we were lucky enough to chat with her about it! (And try all the products out firsthand, obvi.) It turns out she not only launched a 3-piece glitter nail collection like we thought, but also tons of other "Snookified" polishes, including a shimmery green color called "Money Maker" and a magenta hue called "Smush That." She also surprised us with super-cute press-on nails (complete with bows!), animal print nail decals and even a scented top coat. We chatted about all-things beauty, including her freshly-dyed fiery red hair, obsession for nail art, and—GASP—future clothing line. Peep ALL the deets after the jump, and, just so you know, we're totally in love with her now. Baiii.
Rihanna on her tour jet.
Rihanna appeared on her 777 Tour airplane to cheers and explosions of flashbulbs, and journalists leaping out of their seats. In sunglasses with her head half shaved, hair long and black on the opposite side, she strode through the aisles greeting everyone, at one point saying, "This is some presidential s***." Rihanna was all smiles, laughing as she walked. Her outfit was travel ready: a black tank and jeans, grey leopard backpack and a Starter jacket tied around her hips. She also rocked long, pale pink stiletto nails to finish her look.
Stay tuned to MTV Style for all the 777 tour news!
Rihanna performed on 'SNL' this weekend.

SNL has always been our go-to excuse to spend Saturday night on the couch, but last weekend's guest stars were epic enough to cancel ALL our plans and make a date with the TV. Along with host Anne Hathaway, our girl Rihanna made a cameo on the show- her second this year!- commanding the stage with performances of "Diamonds" and a new track "Stay." Her tripped-out '90s backdrop affirms what we already know: Rihanna's NEVER been one to do things halfway. So along with her screensaver-esque set, she totally upped the fashion ante as well in two ridiculously killer outfits. The pop star still took streetwear influence this time around, but ditched her over-the-knee boots and big tees from her last appearance for statement graphic prints. Proving that you can never have too much camo, RiRi rocked a spaghetti strap camo dress custom made by Adam Selman (yep, the same guy responsible for those Victoria's Secret ensembles). She paired it with a camouflage jacket by Carhartt, which you can score for yourself here. Topped off with classic Timberland boots, the result is TOTAL A/V overload, and obviously we love it.

The Nor'easter storm may have hit the East Coast last night, but the snow didn't stop supes like Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, Miranda Kerr and more from stripping down to their skivvies at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. While the models were busy flaunting their killer bods (#jealous), Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Bruno Mars added even MORE eye candy to the mix with performances guaranteed to explode our fash-music minds. RiRi showed up to the event in a Miu Miu cropped silk tank and pencil skirt from the Spring 2013 collection-fresh off the runway!- but it wasn't before long before she switched into her second outfit for the night. Clearly inspired by the whole lingerie theme, Rihanna hit the stage to perform “Diamonds” in a drapey black corset and a custom-made asymmetric hem skirt by designer Adam Selman. Before we go on any further, we MUST pause for a moment and discuss that sky-high slit and garter tights. Even surrounded by supermodels, RiRi can clearly hold her OWN! She topped off the steamy ensemble with ladylike touches like Chanel pearl sunglasses, a vintage 5-row pearl choker and lacy gloves. After the show she tweeted, "#LEGITmodelSh*t I'm a #VS girl now lol." Um, YEAH.
Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi on Oct. 24, and her Snooki Couture fragrance and nail polish collection.

Jessica Simpson, watch your back: Snooki is officially becoming THE next big fashion and beauty entrepreneur, and there's no stopping her. Just a couple weeks ago the Jersey Shore girl launched her own accessories line, and it appears that was just the beginning of her fashion world domination. Last night she debuted her second fragrance, Snooki Couture, and her first ever nail polish collection, called All That Glitters, on HSN. This is in addition to her thriving sunglasses, sandals, handbags, and slippers collections mind you, which already have a super-strong fan base. #WERK

I've said it (aka tweeted it) and I'll say it again: Maluca Mala is EVERYTHING. Yeah, there's a whole crop of emerging ferosh female MCs doing their thang right now, but y'all MUST keep an eye out for the awesomely self-described Dominican princess with a penchant for spitting sassy flows. What really gets my lashes batting are the Harlem-raised talent's serious head-turning eye candy '90s-heavy lewks she fearlessly werqs/I sartorial Stan for. (Color contacts and chokers = <3!) Like Maluca, I'm a fan of a good designer-meets-thrift combo. Unlike Maluca, I'm not homies with the Opening Ceremony crew and don't own custom-made Levi's courtesy of Nicola Formichetti. :'( There's also that VFiles "Xtreme Fashion Week" video in which MM plays host whilst sporting a video camera on her forehead and brilliantly gushes to A. Wang post-show: "That collection was like, OVA!" *Faints* #PleaseBeMyBFF Additionally, I'm obsessed with homegirl's "Lola" music video starring bad ass super-model JENNY SHIMIZU. *J'Dead* Well, I got Maluca to take a hot sec from her dizzying studio sched—where she's finishing up her sure-to-be AMAZE 'Massive Pow Pow' EP—to spill the fashion-y rave-friendly beans for this week's Favorite Things. FYI: Sartorial-induced side-effects include envy and euphoria.
