Rita Ora shows us how to "get the London look."

Earlier today, Rita Ora gave fans a sneak peek of her Rimmel London line via Instagram and um, GIMME. The pics provided us with the first major deets of Ora’s debut make-up collection, which was officially announced last month and is set to hit shelves in February. Ugh. #SOFARAWAY But since she was generous enough to display (what we believe to be) all of the lipstick and nail polish colors the line will offer, we can at least start mentally matching products to our winter 2014 outfits now. And if you think that’s extreme planning, well, it is.
ARTPOP is coming, y'all! On Monday, we got the Jeff Koons-designed album cover, and last night, Lady Gaga and a group of Little Monsters known as the LA Rivington Rebels, shared the tracklist for ARTPOP. There are 15 songs on the album, including tracks we knew about like "Applause" and "Donatella," but there's also one that Gaga teased through #FASHUN.
Hannah Hooper stands out. As the spunky, sole chick in a band full of dudes, you can't help but be drawn to her ever-changing on-stage style (and her ever-changing, ombre extensions *swoon*). One day, you might catch Grouplove's leading lady rocking around in a skeleton leotard onesie—and the next day, she's slowly swaying with a tambourine in a vintage, floor-length, multi-layered grape chiffon dress, like she did for the band's recent show at the McKittrick Hotel in NYC. (SO Stevie Nicks.) #impressed
But somehow, she manages to pull it all off. Actually, she more than pulls it off. She NAILS IT. Every. Single. Time. *bows down* Seriously, the girl wears leopard-print spandex better than Peggy Bundy. *SCURRT* I went there. IDK how she does it, but we at least had to try to steal some of her style secrets—so we did what any curious fan would do. We asked her to show us what's in her suitcase! (Or, like, the next best thing, which equates to a bunch of personal pics of her favorite on-tour outfits. Because folding/re-folding a packed suitcase = giant pain-in-butt.) Check out nine of Hannah's favorite performance get-ups below!

"If I had to describe my fashion style on tour in one word, it would be hangster (hippy gangster)."
Mimi and Amber shop for work clothes.
Blazers, slacks, pumps, some sensible button-ups and perhaps a high-waisted pencil skirt or two. These are the tried-and-true basics found in most women’s work wardrobes. But for the ladies of Big Tips Texas, MTV’s new reality show about a rowdy lil’ honky-tonk bar outside of Dallas, the key to daily dressing lies in the cut of your underwear. Any lingerie that shows the crease of your butt is a ~definite~ no-go, says Amber (a.k.a. Sexy Kitty), who’s worked at the bar since the day it opened. But throw a sheer chemise on over a thong and it might as well be Casual Friday at Red Neck Heaven. Oh! Well, that makes sense. (Actually, no it doesn’t.)
It's no secret that Katy Perry loves Halloween. She loves it almost as much as we do. Last year alone she wore a vampire costume and dressed as Jane Lane from Daria. (Way to make the rest of us look bad with our one costume, KP.) Katy loves Halloween so much she launched her own costume shop within her official merch store. There's a "Roar" music video costume and a "Roar" single Sukajan jacket that we're O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with, but here at MTV Style we like to do things our own way, which is why we've assembled three Katy Perry costumes of our own.
QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE, 'ROAR' MUSIC VIDEO KATY PERRY
You're not stranded in the jungle like Katy Perry in her 'Roar' video but you can look like you are.

Katy sports several jungle-friendly looks in her "Roar" video (we broke down the entire thing here, BTW), but it's her final palm skirt, leopard print crop top, floral crown look that deserves recognition. The lady is adaptable: her plane crashed in the jungle and she looks like this! Since crop tops and floral headbands are so ~in~ right now, both can be found pretty easily in stores and online. The skirt, on the other hand, will require a bit of craftiness, but it'll all be worth it when you can say to people, "See this? I made it. I'm a regular ol' Martha Stewart over here." You'll need to cut the green table cloth into strips, tie each one around a ribbon, and then tie the ribbon around your waist. If Queen Katy can look like that in the jungle, you should be able to look even better: you have technology and scissors on your side!

What? You didn't know Bruce Lee was a DJ?

Justin Bieber doesn’t always wear shirts (actually, make that rarely), but when he does, he makes sure they’re really cool—like this "DJ Bruce Lee" tee from Urban Outfitters ($28.00), for example. Yesterday, Bieber snapped a neck-down selfie of the soft knit shirt, which depicts Lee, a martial artist made famous in films from the seventies, as a modern-day DJ. HI-YAH! *wicki-wicki!* (That's a record scratch sound FYI.) In the re-purposed still, a shirtless DJ Bruce Lee looks all set to spin with his super-imposed headphones, a pair of tinted aviators and a gold medallion necklace (but in actuality, he was probably about to karate-chop the crap out of someone). “This shirt is so hard …” Bieber captioned the photo. (Not as hard as your abs! WHAAAT!)
Miley Cyrus 'Bangerz' release party/At the 'Bangerz' Release Signing/On 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.'

If you fell into a deep sleep for over 24 hours and somehow missed it, you should know that Miley Cyrus' highly-anticipated album, Bangerz, was released yesterday. Last night was the official record signing and release party, a.k.a. 2 opportunities for Miley to show off dem abs.
Her first look featured a number of her fave things: white on white, a crop top, T.U.K Creepers, and pasties. The pasties were not merely circles like she wore a few weeks ago, but giant stars. It is her release, after all: special occasions call for special pasties. She also has on the diamond-encrusted chain link necklace she wore on SNL this weekend because, LBR, if you had that necklace, you'd wear it to everything too. Oh, also, because yesterday was, weather-wise, the first real day of fall in NYC, Miles swapped her preferred hotpants and tanktops for distressed white jeans and a long-sleeve shirt. The sheerness probably isn't helping with the insulation, but how else would everyone know she's upgraded her pasty game?
Looks from the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's Fall 2013 collection.
It may only be October, but Lauren Conrad and her Kohl's line are ready for the holidays! And after peeping these pics, so are we. Presents, pie, parties = all we need in life. There are a lot of looks here we'd wear (hi, all of them), so many a party invitation needs to be sent our way (or else we'll have a lot of clothes and nowhere to go). Two of our fave looks from the collection are the ones above: totally different but both party perfect. The first pairs a lace tank (it comes in 4 colors!) with jeggings and a black-and-navy colorblock blazer. For a more feminine alternative, Lauren wears a rose tulle maxi skirt with a white top and blazer. Props to LC for including blazers in a number of her looks—since it is, y'know, winter during the holidays, having a jacket as an integral part of your outfit is the BEST. Practical and pretty? Yep, we'll take it.
OPI by Gwen Stefani.

Sorry I’m not home right now, I’m
walking in the spiderwebs painting my nails LIKE GWEN STEFANI (so leave a message and I’ll call you back). ICYMI, OPI just announced that Stefani will be the latest celebrity to collaborate on a nail polish collection with the star-savvy brand and TBH, this makes ALL the sense. Gwen is no doubt (heh) a major style icon (the hair, the lipstick, the abs), and this is the ~perfect~ addition to her ever-growing fashion empire, which already includes her L.A.M.B clothing/accessories line and her Harajuku Lovers perfumes.
A still from Tyler, The Creator's "Tamale" music video.

Last night, Tyler, The Creator released a music video for his Wolf banger "Tamale." As always, the four-and-a-half minute short is visually stunning, and as always, Wolf Haley finds a way to weave in his Golf Wang designs. (Real talk, if I were a rapper who made and sold clothes, I'd wear them in my videos, too.) The different with "Tamale," though, is that dude (from what we can tell) ALL Golf Wang for the duration of 8 outfit changes from this collegiate donut snapback to the Flog Gnaw beanie and box cutter tee he wears to close out the video. It's basically like a video lookbook for the Fall/Winter 2013 Golf Wang collection.
