Earlier this week, Gizmodo opened up Home of the Future, a rad pop-up installation that's basically a super high-tech house straight outta The Jetsons that was built inside an old SoHo gym (go see it if you're in NYC!). Because you can't have a house without a closet, and you can't have a closet without clothes, they hosted a panel called "Fashion of the Future," uncovering what sort of technological advancements are happening in the fashion world and what we can expect to wear in the coming months/years/millennia.
Historically, the fancy designers who show at fashion week dictated—or, at the very least, predicted—what we'd be wearing the following season. But with wearable technology becoming increasingly important, runways are becoming decreasingly influential. It's hard to care about the next "It" designer shoe when you can print your own Instagram shots on brand-new Adidas kicks.
Amy and Karma on 'Faking It.'
On Faking It, Karma and Amy have been friends forever, but their personal styles are totally different—Karma is into boho feminine looks, while Amy prefers more casual and slightly masculine outfits. Despite their differing styles, the two ladies came together (in style) on last night's episode. Maybe fake dating is having consequences beyond popularity? Based on the double denim both wore last night, it's looking that way.
Karma maintained her ~flowy~ style with a denim moto jacket and paisley shirt. While last week we were admiring her crown braid, this week we're really feeling both her and Amy's loose waves. Normally we're anti couples that match too heavily, but these two look so good that we forgive 'em. Amy, on the other hand, has on a white denim and gray hoodie combo—while it's not overtly masculine, it's definitely tougher-looking than Karma's moto and paisely combo.
Iggy Azalea is mad for plaid, y'all. She kicked it off with her Clueless-inspired "Fancy" video (although she wore the pattern several times before then), and we've been tracking her recent preppy tendencies ever since. More specifically, Iggy has built upon the Cher Horowitz yellow plaid look in several of her live performances, and she debuted a new version of the ensemble on Dancing With the Stars last night—an adorably retro prom dress.
Lorde at her MAC launch.

We've been eagerly awaiting the launch of Lorde's MAC collaboration since we heard about it in March, and it'll be in our lives so soon! While you can't buy the two products—a deep plum lipstick named Pure Heroine and a black eyeliner called Rapidblack—until next month, Lorde joined MAC last night to celebrate the collection and perform.
Pharrell Williams and the lamp he designed for Kartell.

First off, hi! I'm back. Did you miss me? Did you even know I left? Probs not, but I'm writing for MTV Style again—this time from the West Coast. [Insert smug sunglasses emoji here.] But enough about that, let's get down to biz aka talking about Pharrell doing stuff—and by "stuff" I mean "designing lamps." Between creating a fragrance, collabbing with Adidas, and performing at awards shows, the N.E.R.D. frontman certainly wears many hats (heh). For his latest venture, Pharrell took on the world of furniture design by creating his own version of Ferruccio Laviani’s classic Bourgie table lamp. Italian furniture company Kartell invited Pharrell and 19 other designers (including Lenny Kravitz!) to re-imagine the iconic lamp on the 10th anniversary of its debut, and he totally killed it.
Haim are no strangers to magazine covers, but they just landed the cover of Nylon's annual music issue, which is a BFD. For their first Nylon cover, the trio brought their long locks, strong brows, and best stares. I know my last name isn't Haim and I can't play any instruments, but, um, can I join the band? Or will they at least teach me to get glossy hair?

Right on the heels of Jay Z and Beyonce releasing "Run," photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were snapped before heading to the gym for a pre-wedding workout. Kimye were caught wearing matching bandanas, in addition to a decidedly lowkey outfit for Ye: a gray hooded sweatshirt, cropped sweatpants, tights, and Nikes. Kim, was also wearing tights + a hoodie and a swagged-out leather "Yeezy" jacket. It appears that remaining inconspicuous was not a chief concern. One can only assume they were listening to Ye's "The New Workout Plan."
Meanwhile, hip-hop's premier royal couple stepped out in matching balaclavas in their never-to-be-released film "Run." She with a white blazer, lacy bra top, and trousers; he in a white crewneck tee, blazer, and pants.
Katy Perry's swaggy Ashish x Topshop shuz.

In case you hadn't noticed, Katy Perry is very into lights these days. This new KP era is all about light—from performance outfits to her world tour name, Katy loves lights and the materials that reflect them. It should come as no surprise, then, that Katy is already wearing the light-up shoes from the latest Ashish x Topshop collaboration (which isn't even out yet *hair flip*).
The bad news for Katy is: She's going to have to add another suitcase to her Prismatic World Tour travel gear. The good news is: That's because all the pieces in this new collection—especially the light-up ones—are dope.

Vogue's Creative Editor Grace Coddington joined Instagram, had her account taken down, and then had it reinstated all within the course of a week. Why? She had posted a nude selfie (of sorts) and with the help of a grassroots campaign, was able to get her account back.
This isn't the first time that someone's lost posting privileges after uploading content that wasn't age-appropriate. Bad
girl gal Rihanna happens to be the most well-known casualty of this policy (something that hurts all of us here on a daily basis). However, what Grace had posted wasn't a selfie, nor was it entirely a nude.
Jennifer Lawrence at Cannes.

When Jennifer Lawrence wore a Jason Wu dress to the X-Men: Days of Future Past world premiere, we were all pretty shocked. It was the first time we had seen her wear something other than Christian Dior on the red carpet in a reeeeeeally long time. J-Law must have felt the need to make up for lost time with the French fashion behemoth, because the actress wore four different Dior outfits IN ONE DAY at the Cannes Film Festival this past Saturday.
