Rapper Theophilus London is no stranger to fashion collaborations. He's hooked up with everyone from Del Toro to Stussy under his creative agency LVRS, and he's about to add another yet another name to his fashion resume—Surface to Air. We got wind of this hook-up thanks to a Mr. Porter interview from in the fall, and just last night he (finally!) debuted a piece from the collection via Instagram. In one elusive pic, Theo wrote "Testing 1 2 3," as he stood in the shade wearing a black bomber jacket with silver zipper detailing along the front and patches along the arm. Had Surface to Air not regrammed the photo with the caption, "Surface to Air x @theophiluslondon. Available soon. @lvrswatt #regram #surfacetoair #theophiluslondon #collabs," we never would've even KNOWN it was an original LVRS creation.
It feels like forever ago since we found out/freaked out about Beyonce's "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" announcement, but, dudes, it starts in T-minus three days. THREE. DAYS. AHHHH. As we get closer to her debut show, details about her performance outfits continue to leak out—the most recent being that the infamous twins behind Dsquared2, Dean and Dan Caten, will be designing at least one custom-made piece for
Queen King Bey, according to Vogue UK. Beyonce's other looks will be created by Julien Macdonald, but who knows who else joined her A-list designer roster. (We'll find out on Monday, though! *SQUEE*)

OK, so this is pretty much the best morning ever... and we're not just saying that because it's Friday (although that's awesome, too). We're exploding with excitement because we've got a double dose of The Bling Ring action coming straight to you, all within the next 12 hours! Hopefully you're already WELL AWARE that we're debuting an exclusive clip and chatting with the film's stars Emma Watson, Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien at 11 PM EST tonight as the final MTV Movie Awards Sneak Peek Week show on MTV.com. So grab your friends, stock up on popcorn, and make room on the couch, because that's going down later, but first, peep the poster for The Bling Ring right here! The brand spanking new teaser image just landed, and it's throwing some MAJOR shade. Five different kinds of shade, in fact, one for each member of the infamous sticky-fingered crew.
Hey guys! Yes, we're talking to YOU. We all know that prom is a special occasion, a formal event, something you'll remember forever, yadda yadda yadda, but who says you can't be comfortable all night long while you're at it? Proving that prom doesn't have to be stuffy, this week we showed all the dudes out there how to look slick minus the traditional tuxedo action, and now we're taking things a step further (heh) with the very best sneakers to wear to prom. Believe it or not, your favorite casual brands CAN work with formalwear—it's just a matter of how you style 'em. Hey, if Frank Ocean, Logan Lerman, and Russell Westbrook can do it, why can't you? So get the lowdown below... you can thank us later.
KEEP IT CLASSIC WITH COMMON PROJECTS

When it comes to classy sneakers, it really doesn't get more understated and cool than Common Projects. Luxe and subtle, these black leather lace-ups bring an extra dose of style anywhere... even your high school dance floor. While they're definitely not cheap at $390 a pop, Frank Ocean proves that this slick number is definitely worth saving up for. Start counting your pennies now!
A$AP Rocky for The Coveteur.

As soon as you've broken the trance of A$AP Rocky's half-smile, we have serious FASHUN business to discuss. Evidence abounds that this Harlem-native is a bonafide fashion killa, and yet, with every new interview or, you know, transcribed phone call with Alexander Wang, we feel like we're learning SO MUCH about Pretty Flacko's sartorial philosophy. Honestly, a lot of the time he's dropping historical knowledge and sage style advice. It's fascinating. The Coveteur recently caught up with Rocky while on Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour in Toronto.
Earlier this week, a beauty-focused interview excerpt circulated wherein Dat PMF divulges priceless information about daily exfoliating, cleansing his face with Witch Hazel, his hair care regime, and his opinions on ladies wearing makeup. As if that wasn't illuminating enough, Coveteur has just dropped ROCKY'S FULL CLOSET FEATURE. There are Kenzo flat brims on cutting boards. There are Goyard bags on wardrobes. Best of all, though, there's another highly informative interview. Highlights include Rocky's casual mention of Alessandro Dell'Acqua amidst Dolce & Gabbana and Christian Dior without dropping a beat, and these are the five things we learned.
Sure, we've been finding ways to have THE most perfect prom all week long, but have you ever wondered how some of your favorite celebs celebrated their big night out? Well, we certainly have, and since we work at MTV (NBD), we thought we'd find out how some of our biggest stars stacked up. We rounded up prom pics from Jersey Shore, The Hills, Laguna Beach, Awkward., and TRL cast members, and, OMG, we are so excited to share them with you. Warning: Lots of awesomeness ahead.
NICOLE 'SNOOKI' POLIZZI FROM 'JERSEY SHORE'
Our girl Jersey Shore girl Snooki didn't look so much different back in the day. She definitely had the "T" of "GTL" on lock, and, um, that up-do with the tendrils cascading down the side? SO mid-2000s. She went for the classic smoky eye and nude lip look paired with a strapless teal dress, which she said she swiped up from JC Penney. Not bad, Ms. Polizzi!

Selenators, rejoice! In mere days, your queen Selena Gomez will be taking to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards stage to perform her new single, "Come & Get It." The "earthy" performance promises to be one of the night's highlights, and for you, dear Sel stans, we think it's fair to guess that it will be your favorite moment. While you've probably already started planning your viewing party (and if you haven't, chop chop!), we scoured the internet for some Selena-inspired stuff to really take it to the next level. While we suggest creating your own DIY "S-E-L-E-N-A" banner to welcome your guests, there are even more killer ways to show your love for the Spring Breakers star.
Celebrities: they're just like us? Er, not so much...at least when it comes to looking gorgeous on the red carpet. Along with impossibly good genes, we all know the stars have a team of creative masterminds to get their hair, makeup, and nails in tip-top shape for major events. But here's awesome news for those out there who are NOT on Hollywood's A-List (read: everyone else), because these beauty pros are generously willing to divulge their secrets! Earlier this week we filled you in on how to replicate Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried and Sarah Hyland's best hairstyles for prom, and now we're quizzing the makeup artists behind Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, and Katy Perry's most glamorous faces. Regardless of whether you're rocking a short dress, a long gown, or anything in between, find out how to copy the looks for prom below!
RIHANNA AT THE 2013 GRAMMY AWARDS

Katniss Everdeen may have bragging rights to the "Fire Dress," but leave it to Rihanna to crank up the heat even higher on the 2013 Grammys scene in a bright red custom Alaia gown. The cherry-colored sheer frock might command our eyeballs initially, but it's Rihanna's classic Old Hollywood makeup look that really seals the deal here: super-long lashes, defined brows, and THAT amazing red lip. According to the pop star's makeup artist Mylah Morales, obtaining a traffic-stopping effect like this one requires a group effort. "Whenever we do anything with the crew, it's a collaboration between everyone," she told us over the phone yesterday. "Basically we find out what Rihanna will be wearing and then discuss the best beauty look." Although Mylah isn't opposed to rocking a statement mouth with dramatic eyes, this time around she says, "I gave her a really clean, matte face so her lips were the focus, especially given her dress." Want to nab the perfect red mouth for yourself? Mylah recommends using a combination of lipliner (she used Cherry from MAC on Ri), a base color (Ruby Woo) and finish things off with Lady Danger to really give a pop of color.
Ever since she first burst on the music scene back in 2009, Sky Ferreira has practically trademarked her long Barbie blonde locks. Sure, her signature California girl cut may have undergone several incarnations over the years, from waist-length and wavy as a baby-faced newcomer all the way to platinum and straight earlier this spring, but we've never seen anything quite so dramatic as this. After sporting long hair for what seems like forever, the 20-year-old took a cue from Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Karlie Kloss yesterday and CHOPPED. IT. ALL. OFF. We know, we can't believe it, either—but pictures don't lie, people. Not only did she cut 6-plus inches off the length, Terry Richardson was there to document the entire thing (of course).
