Selena Gomez has been teasing us FOREVER (OK, like, a month) about the release her "Come & Get It" music video, but now we can officially start counting down the days until the premiere right here on MTV! Her video will air on Tuesday, May 7 at 7:53 p.m. followed by a live 30-minute "MTV First: Selena Gomez" chat on MTV.com, and, psst, Selenators, you can ask questions during the interview, too. But guys, today Selena gave us a tiny teaser on what to expect next week, and, OMG, we can barely handle all the Bollywood-inspired amazingness! In the 30-second preview, she shows off tons of flowy gowns paired with oh-so-sultry makeup looks and even—gasp—an underwater scene. OooOOOh. One red dress in particular, though, should look REALLY familiar to y'all because Selena has already worn it before—at the MTV Movie Awards!
BAPE debuts 20th anniversary t-shirts designed by 20 creative figures, including Pharrell.

Earlier this month we spilled the exciting news that streetwear label A Bathing Ape was teaming up with some of our favorite creative types— 20 of them, in fact!— on a special edition collection of tees and artwork to ring in the brand's 20th anniversary. And sure, we all know that BAPE is no stranger to rad partnerships, but an epic celebration like this one means the roster of collaborators is NEXT LEVEL awesome. We're talking about everyone from music heavyweights like Kanye West and Pharrell, to artists like Futura and Stash, to fashion players like Jun Takahashi and Daisuke Obana. Each of these highly diverse (but equally cool) style setters have all placed their signature stamp on the new crop of not-so-basic white crewnecks.
Haim on the June cover of ASOS magazine.

It's no secret that we love the sisters Haim around here. We've just about worn away the play button on all of our various devices hitting repeat on their 2012 single "Don't Save Me," and we MAY have even sung it in karaoke more than once. Maybe. Beyond just crafting one undeniable hit after another and putting on one of the best live shows we've seen in AWHILE, the sisters also have great style, both as a group and individually. We've chatted with them (and their music video stylists) about it in the past, and we're overjoyed to see it captured so well on the June cover of ASOS magazine. The girls are each wearing looks that reflect their style, with Alana, a.k.a. BabyHaim, wearing an ASOS crop top emblazoned with the year '1990,' middle sister—and resident tomboy—Danielle in an Ashish sequined numbers oversized shirt dress, and eldest sis Este in an ASOS crop top and Antipodium metallic skirt. The shoot is sunny and fun and the photos look as though they could almost be candids from the sisters' own lives in their native LA.

Chemistry is a real thing, and it can make ALL the difference in a photo spread. The Haim sisters are obviously super comfortable with one another, not just from playing in a band together but from, you know, growing up in the same house for their entire lives, and the ease and humor with which they interact is undeniable. On the cover, Este gleefully makes a mustache with Danielle's long brown hair, and the interior shots are no less playful. The girls manage to make a chain link fence look as exciting as a rollercoaster ride in shiny jeans and a T-shirt for Danielle, a psychedelic, Tumblr-meets-canyon-lady maxi dress for Este, and, of course, Alana's signature jean shorts and a graphic long-sleeved shirt. Are you taking notes? We certainly have been. The mag is available now on the ASOS Fashion Up app, available from the app store.
What do you think of Haim's ASOS mag cover?

The Ciate Corrupted Neon nail set.

Must. Get. Glowing. Nails. Right. This. Instant. *shakes self out of trance* Whoa. Sorry, dudes. Even WE got spellbound by our own hypnotizing GIF that features Ciate's new Corrupted Neon nail set. You might remember the British nail brand for making the (now infamous) Caviar manicure and insanely cool chalkboard nail set, but this time around they are taking nail art to a whole new level with their neon set that SCREAMS summer. The kit includes a matte neon paint pot, loose neon glitter and a mini UV top coat, which (if you've been keeping up with our blog!) you might remember us talking about last week. Illamasqua released a Paranormal UV polish collection, which featured four shades that could glow under any black light—and Ciate's polish works the same way! So, yes, your nails can be neon bright at the beach during day and glowing at the club long after the sun sets. I mean, just look at how she WERKS both looks in our UH-MAZING GIF above. *brushes shoulders off*
Let A$AP Rocky be irrefutable proof that repping hard for designers you believe in has major perks. Back in January, Rocky posted an Instagram of himself wearing a KTZ tunic hoodie on the streets of London. It was a major statement look, but one Pretty Flacko, always the risk-taker, totally pulled off and with unabashed enthusiasm. Welp, showing that love has worked in the dude's favor, as the UK-based design duo has supplied Rocky with a custom, personalized jumpsuit/sweatsuit situation performance outfit for Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour.
Imagine if you could buy Solange's 2012 Met Gala dress?
Moda Operandi, how do you keep making our 2013 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art dreams come true? First there was the PUNK: Chaos to Couture inspired designer capsule collection, and now the runway-to-retail innovator is taking it one step further: come May 7th, you'll actually be able to buy the dresses right off of the Met Gala red carpet. Details are limited, but Popsugar reports that the designers involved in the collab include Anthony Vaccarello, Wes Gordon, Balmain, Nina Ricci, and maybe more. Each of the designers worked alongside Moda Operandi's Indre Rockefeller, who serves as Director of Ready-To-Wear for the site, on the sale, and although there is still no word as to which celebs will be wearing the get-em-now gowns, with designers like those we can only surmise that they'll be major.
Adam Selman and Rihanna working on the autumn/winter 2013 River Island collection.

Listen, we know it feels like Rihanna JUST released her debut spring 2013 River Island collection (co-designed with Adam Selman), but she's already showing us previews for her upcoming autumn/winter line. RiRi Instagrammed a pic of her and Adam working on her fall-ready pieces, which, judging from this one image, looks like it features LOTS of prints and metallics. We ain't mad at that! Rihanna sported a backward snapback hat, comfy tee, leather pencil skirt and stacked bangles while designing her second range, which is totally a reflection of her wearable, '90s-grunge-meets-streetwear pieces from her debut line. Back in March, we caught up with Adam at the Opening Ceremony "RIHtrospective" event, and he told us straight-up that they started working on the second collection the day after her London Fashion Week show. Dang, they waste no time, y'all! We obvi can't WAIT to see what the creative twosome will bring to the table for the fall, but until then, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Adam below!
H&M has it right. When it comes to Beyonce, you can never get enough. That's why, on TOP of putting King Bey front and center as the face of their 2013 summer collection, they're not holding back on all their exclusive Mrs. Carter images and footage. Less than a week after releasing their official Bey-fronted campaign video, the Swedish multinational retailer has just dropped an extensive behind-the-scenes look at the campaign shoot!
Behold, Miley Cyrus' second 'ELLE' UK cover.

We thought it couldn't get much better than Miley Cyrus' killer ELLE UK cover, which dropped last week and shows the singer giving major face in a Lanvin blazer (and not much else). But you guys, it just did! A second cover circulated over the weekend, courtesy of her very own Twitter, and proves what we've always known— it's impossible to have too much Miley in our lives. The pop star blasted the black and white image out online to her nearly 12 million followers on Friday with the caption, "@ELLEUK sometimes covers are hard to pick. Guess well just go with 2 covers! #2isbetterthan1." That's for sure. Featuring a nude Miley with her eyes closed, Saint Laurent necklace held to her lips, this achromatic portrait is a definite contrast to the in-your-face fierceness of the first. The photo might be minimalist, but nobody can deny it's JUST as dramatic.
Katy Perry at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and at the Lincoln Memorial over the weekend.

If you want a guidebook for how to do spring dressing right, look no further than Katy Perry. The singer has transitional dressing down pat, and her recent weekend in Washington for the White House Correspondents' Dinner is a perfect example. For the big night, Katy wore a luminescent green Giambattista Valli gown with natural, branch-like detailing at the waist. The color reminded us a lot of Katy's mint green Gucci Grammys dress, and has us wondering if we're going to be seeing the singer in more leafy hues as the warmer months progress. The strapless gown looks almost to be made of acetate, with the green giving way to brown in places, lending the whole look a very fairy-like vibe. In keeping with the natural tone, Katy wore her makeup neutral, with a pink lip and subtly-lined eye taking no shine away from the dress. Her hair was also loose and natural, pushed to the side in thick curls.
