Yaas! Day 5 of Fashion Week and we, as usual, have Jarvis Derrell of #shehashadit giving us his take on street style. If you need a refresher on earlier looks from this week, peep here. Otherwise, check below to see what ~streetonistas~ were wearing today so you don't accidentally leave your house in the same outfit.

Lydia on 'Teen Wolf.'
If you're still weeping/shaking/holding loved ones close after last night's Teen Wolf, join the club. Poor Stiles! Poor Sheriff Stilinski! Poor Scott, Allison, Lydia, and Isaac, who had to go to school after no sleep! Since I'm not entirely equipped to discuss supernatural beings, this post will focus on something I am capable of talking about: hair.
You may have noticed that Lydia was mysteriously absent in last week's episode—well, I think I know where she was was: watching hair tutorials on YouTube. Her hair game was SO on-point last night. Her first look was an ~updated~ ponytail, which looked straightforward from the front, but then, she turned around and—BAM—it's an entirely different story. The ponytail hangs to the side and is wrapped around itself. Sure, it's messy, but in a chic way. If my hair looked like that one day in my life, I'd be happy. And take a lot of pictures.
Kristen Stewart + Nicolas Ghesquiere 4EVA

In the latest issue of Marie Claire, cover girl Kristen Stewart really lets her hipster flag fly. She reads some of her original poetry, lounges around in Vans and dog tags, casually talks about modernist literature...you know the drill by now. But then suddenly, somewhere between the sneakers and Steinbeck, she gets to talking about Nicolas Ghesquiere (creative director of Louis Vuitton, formerly of Balenciaga). As she tells the tale of her introduction to the designer and the world of high fashion in general, it reads more like a romance novel meet-cute than anything else. Check out what she had to say (along with some imagined romantic subtext on my end, identified in italics):
"I did a photo shoot with Bruce Weber when I was 14 for Interview magazine. I met Nicolas Ghesquiere."
Kristen pauses, flipping her auburn bed-head to the other side, switching her part—a nervous tick when interviewers come close to striking an emotional chord. She looks off into the distance, lost in the memory of that chance meeting with Nicolas. A delicate and knowing glimmer flashes in her green eyes, though it disappears just as quickly.
Drake debuted the jacket on 'Saturday Night Live.'

In January, Drake hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time. Remember? As the show began, he sauntered onstage with a big grin and proceeded to ace his first monologue. He was wearing charisma, confidence, and a fine lookin' letter jacket. You may have admired this quality jacket. The craftsmanship. The signature OVO crew details. The way it seemed to give him just a little bit more Drake Power.
Well, good news! You too can get your very own extra Drake Power, as long as you've got $458 to drop and maybe a ticket to Toronto. Drake teamed up with Roots Canada to launch his 2014 tour jackets, and they'll be available starting February 15 at a Toronto Roots location. So far this is the only information available—one might wonder if they'll be up for sale elsewhere? But considering his 2011 Roots jacket collaboration was a limited edition and sold out quiiiiiickly, this might be a campout situation.
Angel Haze, Solange, and Holland Roden at New York Fashion Week.

Now that we're on Day Five of New York Fashion Week, we've grown familiar with who is in New York and attending shows. (Anna Kendrick is all over, to the point where I think she may have cloned herself.) Angel Haze, Solange, and Holland Roden attended shows yesterday (it was Solange and Holland's first appearance at this year's Fashion Week), so we have a feeling we'll see some new faces as the event draws to a close.
While Angel Haze walked in DKNY's show over the weekend, she sat front row at 3.1 Phillip Lim's show yesterday in a semi-metallic suit and matching light-purple hair. Solange attended the Milly show doing what she does best: wearing bold-colored clothes. It's not easy to pull off orange, bright blue, and pink, but obviously Solange managed. After her five-show front row streak at last year's Fashion Week, Holland Roden appeared at Alice + Olivia's show looking very schoolgirl-chic in a plaid skirt and bow-print sweater.

Runway fashion borrowing from hip-hop culture is hardly a new phenomenon. The trend took off back in fall of 1991 when Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld divisively tried his hand at “the ‘nouveau’ rapper look,” piling gold chains on his models, while his peers Isaac Mizrahi and Charlotte Neuville took similar inspiration. Now it’s pretty much a commonplace for designers to look to the genre and even tap its key players to walk in their shows. Just this weekend, Angel Haze strutted down DKNY’s runway.
Last season at New York Fashion Week, Alexander Wang—who’s merged the two worlds throughout his career—referenced ‘90s rap when he sent out "Parental Advisory" sweatshirts to the beat of Pharoahe Monch’s 1999 single “Simon Says.” A moment that perhaps also stuck with Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright and David Neville when they were planning their Fall ‘14 collection.
Day Four of New York Fashion Week means we're halfway done with all this #FASHUN. Thankfully, we still have a few more days of #shehashadit's Jarvis Derrell taking on NYFW street style for us. Yesterday was rife with exposed skin and colorful hair, but today is full of layers, fur, and hats. So many hats. In case you missed any of Jarvis' earlier posts, you can peep 'em here—otherwise see below for what's been going down today on the street.

It's Brunette-ney, b****! (Heh.) Over the weekend, Britney Spears shared a photo of herself that, at first glance, appeared to be some new promo for her Fantasy Remix perfume collection. "Spice up Valentine’s Day by getting ‘Naughty & Nice’ ((pun intended)) ," Spears tweeted while posing backstage at her Las Vegas vanity. But wait—that's not the same dark fringed wig she wore in the ads. In fact, we're pretty sure that's not a wig at all. And this isn't even an (official) ad. Could it be?! Britney's gone back to brunette, y'all!

As you may have concluded from our coverage over the weekend, New York Fashion Week marched along on Saturday and Sunday. It's Fashion Week, as in seven days, and not just the work week of regular ol' Joes. There were a ton of shows over the weekend, including DKNY, Christian Siriano, and Diane von Furstenberg, so celeb sightings were at an all-time high.
