Back in March, Justin Bieber and Harry Styles both channeled vintage Calvin Klein–we’ll let you guess who did so while wearing significantly less clothes. Clue: He is fashion. Now, Rita Ora is officially making the look a trend. At her London show over the weekend, the singer started out her performance in a Robert Palmer-inspired black suit and tie and ended in a Calvin Klein bra and underwear.
Ora has always been a #FASHUN risk-taker–it’s one of the things we love about her most–so we’re not exactly surprised to see her sport this throwback CK look. In fact, just last week Rita was captured in her underwear on Iggy Azalea’s Instagram–though that picture might have been a surprise to her seeing as Iggy’s caption was “#lurklife.” This time Rita was fully in charge of her stripped-down look.

While we wait anxiously for the official "Problem" music video to debut (oh, the torture!), Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande continue to give us previews of the vid's seemingly 1960s-inspired mod theme. The latest sneak peek came at Saturday's Wango Tango concert, where Iggy and Ariana performed "Problem" in some seriously retro gear.
For her ensemble, it looks like Ariana borrowed the EXACT same mini and crop-top combo from the "Problem" video wardrobe. And, of course, she paired the outfit with her signature knee-high boots—only this time she went with one black and one white boot to mix it up. Twist!

Yesterday was, as you know, Mother's Day. While millions of doting sons were dialing up 1-800-Flowers and sending their mothers roses or tulips or whatever the flower shop had left and could put into a vase, Justin Bieber decided to do things a little differently. Instead of buying a bouquet for his mom, he simply wore them on his shorts. Because, after all, it's the thought that counts, right?
Justin took his mom to dinner yesterday—to the Four Seasons, because nothing says Mother's Day like an all-you-can-eat hotel brunch—wearing floral-print shorts. These were no ordinary floral-print shorts, though. Wait. Does such a thing exist? Anyway, they were Sam MC floral-print shorts that cost Biebs, hypothetically at least, $545. Nothing is more brunch-appropriate than a good spring floral, so we get it.
Jennifer Lawrence at the 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past' world premiere.

Back in November, Jennifer Lawrence was on a lot of red carpets. We got so used to seeing her every night in Dior and showcasing her new short 'do during The Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo tour that we practically forgot there was a time that she wore other designers and could put her hair in an updo. We were reminded over the weekend, however, when she wore a Jason Wu dress to the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere and debuted her new bob.
Jennifer broke her Dior streak with a shimmery blue dress from Jason Wu's Fall 2014 collection. She kept the rest of her look simple, wearing no necklaces or bracelets, just a ring and earrings. If you're going to temporarily ditch the company you're the face of, this is the way to do it, right? This dress would be hard to pass up, TBH. Plus, it's vaguely reminiscent of Mystique, the character she plays in X-Men. If this is a subtle homage we see it and we like it, Jenn. Even bigger news than her fashion? Her new hair!
I've got some bad news if you were planning on, like, accomplishing anything before noon tomorrow. MTV is playing Maid in Manhattan, which happens to star a 10-year-old Tyler Posey. Yep, Tyler played Jennifer Lopez's son long before he played Scott McCall on Teen Wolf and we're celebrating his first major role. If you're a big Tyler fan, be sure to watch the movie starting at 9:24 a.m. EST on MTV and, if you're a really big fan, again at 5:30 p.m. EST. You can celebrate your love with fellow fans using #WeHeartTylerPosey.
We figured the best way to show why we at MTV Style heart Tyler Posey would be through his #FASHUN. The dude has come a long way since his Maid in Manhattan premiere outfit, so we need to talk about his style evolution. If you start reading now you'll have ample time to brush up before the movie premieres on MTV tomorrow. Let's start!

Check out li'l Tyler at the Maid in Manhattan premiere! While he hasn't worn a turtleneck on a red carpet since then, he wears leather jackets, jeans, and sneakers all the time–he had his wardrobe staples established at a young age. Upping the #swaggy levels of this look is that hoop earring! We see you, hoop earring. We see you and we'll never forget you.
Moms are great. They teach you how to do stuff. They tuck you in at night. They fix you soup when you're sick. And they bestow unto you the miracle of life (well, some of the time—adoptive moms, what up!). Moms are a lot of warm and fuzzy things, but "indisputably stylish" isn't a trait that's thrown around a lot. (See: mom jeans.) BUT if your mom is one of the following 9 celebrities, that's another story.
Aside from being super-famous before she was even born (*achem*), Blue Ivy Carter also gets to have one of the most fashionable women in the world as a mother. Mom Beyonce's wardrobe is just as Sasha Fierce as ever, just now with some added hints of maternal goddess.
HAPPY MOM JEANS DAY

Just in case you need a reminder: This Sunday is Mother's Day. While moms have their name associated with tons of good things, there is one stigma that follows them wherever they go. Yeah, we're talking about mom jeans. The denim style we all now associate with "mom jeans" has had a short, but full, history—in order to celebrate Mother's Day fully, we figured we should do a brief rundown of the pants. LEGGO!
Designer denim had its genesis in the 1970s, but it was in the 1980s that it really took off, beginning largely with Brooke Shields' controversial "Nothing Gets Between Me and My Calvins" ad campaign for Calvin Klein. Throughout the '80s the style shifted toward a tapered leg with a loose top, a "tight-roll" or "peg leg" style, if you will. By the early '90s, people were over the tight leg and into a looser fit on the bottom, resulting in, generally, what we would consider a baggy pair of jeans.
All one has to do to understand the popularity of the style is to glance at this cast photo from Beverly Hills, 90210. As Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and Kelly (Jennie Garth) prove, high-cut jeans with fitted legs were everywhere. These people lived in Beverly Hills and were stylish and rich—they were on top of what was going on in fashion, and this was it. It wasn't just moms who were wearing these jeans: It was everyone.
Rihanna at the 2014 NBA playoffs on May 9, 2014
Last night, former Instagram provocateur and #1 basketball fan Rihanna snagged a coveted courtside seat at the Nets vs. Heat game in Brooklyn to support her pal LeBron. "Nothing better than watching the KING live!!!!," she tweeted, though it was Rih who looked like royalty perched in the front row decked out in an embroidered Bernhard Willhelm track jacket and matching running shorts, which can be yours for a little under two grand (yeah, ugh, but bright side: It's easier to get your hands on a glorified sweatsuit that costs a few thou than courtside tickets to an NBA playoff game...) The Heat triumphed, undoubtedly because they had Rihanna rooting for them, but the real winner of the night was her floral Joyrich bucket hat.
Yes please to Beyonce nail art.

Three things we're very into around these parts are nail art, Beyonce, and MTV Other, which is our main source for short shows that we share with all our friends so they think we're cool and funny (I guess it helps that we're naturally both those things *hair flip*). The trailer for the second season of Fast Food Heights just dropped, and we are so excited. Fueling our excitement? BEYONCE NAIL ART.
Yeah, we're excited for this video.

Ever since Ariana Grande started dressing like Nancy Sinatra back in April, we've become increasingly excited for her "Problem" music video with Iggy Azalea. We assumed the vid would be filled with 1960s flair, especially since Ariana wore go-go boots to perform the song at the iHeartRadio Festival. There's also the fact that the mod aesthetic would make ANY music video spectacular.
