• Miley Cyrus flaunted way more than her engagement ring this week after a yoga class in West Hollywood. The singer and actress showed off her brand-new ink, which depicts a quote from former president Theodore Roosevelt inside her left arm. Oh, and did we mention it's her FIFTEENTH tattoo?!
• Justin Bieber wasn't even alive when the cult 1985 flick The Goonies first hit theaters, but the singer paid a fashion homage to the movie in baggy harem pants, a popped denim collar, and head bandana during a trip to Japan. Is he channeling his inner Josh Brolin? Your guess is as good as ours...
• True story: Demi Lovato loves Topshop. Don't believe us? We've got major sartorial proof straight from her X-Factor tour, where she rocks the U.K. retailer head to toe.
• Would you pay $90,000 for a t-shirt? We didn't think so. But if anyone has a couple of thousands of extra dollars lying around, go ahead and splurge on a seriously limited-edition Air Yeezy 2 top.
• He's ridiculously good looking, so it was only a matter of time before Swedish DJ Avicii scored his very first modeling gig. Check out his brand-new RL Denim & Supply campaign here!

We're 100% in the mouth of the Comic-Con 2012 monster right now (which, in case you were wondering, is equal parts awesomely terrifying and cuddly, glittery anime eyes the size of our fists). We're nose hairs-deep in all things illustrated and fantastic and (chiefly) the resurgence of so many superheros from our childhood! From Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series to the Power Rangers' 20th birthday right down to Voltron's triumphant return to Comic-Con - it's all VERY exciting. In honor of all our animated nostalgia (and because, guys, retro graphics are reeeeeeally big right now), we're serving up some sweet inspired swag so that you, too, can wear your love for Comic-Con on your sleeve (or snapback). Enjoy!
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a total childhood staple for any '90s kid. From the animated TV series to the live action movie, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo were the leading
men turtles of our staff's lives for more than a few years. Thus, we FUH-LIPPED at first sight of this TMNT crewneck sweater ($39.99). Looking to keep things a bit more subtle? Opt for this Splinter t-shirt ($19.99) which pays homage to the sensei/adoptive father without outright screaming, "COWABUNGA, DUDES! Want some pizza??!" Looking for a Turtle staple that won't yield dirty looks if you wear it every day? Then, this turtle-green snapback ($14.99) is probably up your alley.
Charli XCX is the perfect combination of goth beauty and pop princess.

Once upon a time, a budding 19-year-old Brit pop starlet with a thing for killer platform sneaks and rave-y, lush pop gems emerged, citing style influences like the Spice Girls and Wednesday Addams. *DEAD* Her name is Charli XCX, and she made me believe in pop fairytales again, by transporting me to the immaculate years aka 95-97, at a time when tattoo chokers and fluffy doodle pens were still waaay in (and pre-Ginger Spice's devastating exit). Thanks for that, girl. Let's just avoid discussing her Refinery29 shoot which involves a purple velvet dress paired with shredded tights a la Angela Chase, because tears will def happen. #SOGOOD. But you'd never guess Charli was a grunge-y kind of girl when peeping her Carine Roitfeld-styled V Magazine cover, in which she and her fellow cuties, Grimes and Sky Ferreira, WERK it in matching Givenchy, blood red pouts and Robert Palmer-tinged slicked back buns, all the while clutching *SPINE SHIVERS!* mice. Her latest video for "You're The One" is all sorts of heart-exploding-into-rainbow-fireworks kinds of amazing, and, duh, so are her favorite fashion-y things which resulted in major closet envy/fake-tattoo-purchasing-at-local-suburban-Claire's. In short, IAMOBSESSED.com. *Runs to Patricia Field, buys entire stock of skeleton glasses*
Here's the thing about band tees: it's impossible to have too many of them, AND they never go out of style. Okay, so maybe these are just our excuses for constantly adding music t-shirts (both vintage and new) to our overflowing stockpile, but hey- we're obviously not the only ones. Rihanna, Willow Smith,Taylor Momsen, and about a zillion other cool kids have been running around in the basics for a while now, and Emma Roberts is the latest celeb to hop on board. We spotted the actress wearing a Velvet Underground t-shirt while filming her new movie Empire State in- where else?- New York.

Our love of Kat Graham is not one we express too subtly here at MTV Style. Her sartorial acrobatics and unabashed wielding of all the hottest beauty trends are things we applaud on the DAILY around here, and this day is no exception. Kat was scheduled to appear and perform for a charity event with Bing and DoSomething.org this week, and for said event, Miss Graham skipped her trademark sleek ponytail for a short, sassy, curlicue 'do. She also wore not one, but TWO boldly printed ensembles that together make for a kind of work-to-weekend scenario.
Stevie Nicks performs in 1978.
All of a sudden, mid day yesterday, a corner of the Internet exploded. News broke that legendary British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac are planning a reunion in 2013, something diehard fans of the Mac had assumed was impossible due to the famed infighting between the band's members. Lead singer/tambourine playing sorceress Stevie Nicks announced the reformation on CBS This Morning, and of course, both super-fans and casual admirers alike went nuts. Nicks, who wrote the band's 1977 Billboard #1 hit "Dreams," is as much a style icon as a musical muse, with everyone from Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino, America's sweetheart Taylor Swift, and Florence + The Machine singer Florence Welch counting themselves as acolytes. Even if you don't know you're familiar with Stevie Nicks, you probably are. You know the opening of Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious," well, it's sampled from Nicks's "Edge of Seventeen," off of her 1981 solo record, Bella Donna. T.Swift calls Nicks a "childhood idol," and Bethany Cosentino has Making Rumors: The Inside Story of the Classic Fleetwood Mac Album on her coffee table. There is also a Fleetwood Mac tribute record being released on August 14th, titled Just Tell Me That You Want Me, which includes takes on the band's tunes by Best Coast, Lykke Li, The Kills and MGMT.
As far as her style goes, Nicks's outfit from a 1978 performance in East Troy, Wisconsin (pictured above), speaks for itself: a pink cape with cascading black feathers pouring from the shoulders of a matching pink, body-hugging, velvet dress. Yes, cape, feathers, and velvet in one look. Case rested. Not to mention Nicks's long blond hair, which grew in volume through the decades (although she now favors a sleek, straight style with long blunt bangs), which, in the performance image, is crowned with a cage-like headpiece.
Rita Ora on the cover of September's ASOS Magazine.

It's been a month since we first learned that ASOS had snagged U.K. songbird and our girl crush of the moment Rita Ora for the brand's magazine, and we've been stalking the social media front ever since for a glimpse of the new issue. And finally-finally- it's hereeee! The London-based retailer just premiered the cover on its Facebook page this morning, and it's every bit as awesome as we'd hoped. Rita Ora looks stunning in a plaid-printed top, a ripped mini, and, the piece de resistance, a studded and bejeweled denim jacket. The result is a wonderfully out-there mashup of '90s grunge motifs and modern day style...the best of both worlds has never been cooler.
Kristen Stewart at Comic Con.

Chalk it up to her Balenciaga duties and the Snow White and the Huntsman press, but Kristen Stewart has been in high fashion mode all summer long- modeling in designer campaigns, working everything from harnesses to sheer gowns on the red carpet, and fronting no fewer than FOUR glossy covers this season. The actress looks great glammed up (clearly) but all it takes is one glance at her low key outfit yesterday at Comic Con to see that K. Stew is clearly back in her casual-cool element...and she's loving it.

Hey peplum, we're onto you! We can't stop spotting stars sporting this throwback trend (see: the 2012 Movie Awards), so it was only a matter of time before we started to see it take over fashion blogs. We have to say, though, we've peeped the peplum skirt and dress done many a time before, so we though we'd do a different take on the trend—peplum tops. Clever, eh? We think so. Check out how three bloggers all across the globe wore their peplum pieces below!
Cher Horowitz is one girl whose closet we would LOVE to raid.
Picture yourself on a Saturday night. You're in your bedroom, hair freshly washed, bathrobe on, staring into the dark, dark abyss that is your closet. You start to slowly go through the items and all of a sudden you're sucked straight into a vortex! You come to moments later and your hair is a mess, your towel is askew and your bedroom is COVERED in every item of clothing you've ever so much as looked at. What would save me from this mess, you wonder, and then you remember that scene in Clueless when Cher is trying to get dressed in the morning and she uses a "Dress Me" program to pick out her outfit for her. It could be so easy! The wonderful professional closet-snoopers at The Coveteur feel our pain, and although they don't have a "Dress Me" program for us, they DO have about a zillion way to get some of Cher's most memorable looks.
