One Direction might have a perfume in the works.

Heads up, Directioners! According to our friends at Marie Claire UK, there might be a One Direction PERFUME coming down the pipe just for you! The mag revealed that everyone's favorite Brit-Irish boy band "are to put their names to a new scent for women that will feature floral notes and be suitably sweet for their predominantly teenage fanbase." And then we gripped our desks and screamed at our computer monitors a full 60 seconds. MC UK elaborated, "A source close to the band told us: 'One Direction are working on releasing a scent, it’s all super secret right now.'" *pause for snickering about the unintentional hilarity of "releasing a scent"* Before we start clearing out some counter space for a 1D perfume bottle (or *cue genius light bulb* perhaps FIVE?), we'll hold for a beat until the dudes themselves confirm the news, but it totally wouldn't surprise us if the group had a scent in the works.

Summer is OVER, which means you can finally bust out that floral suit you've been wanting to wear since last spring (without becoming a total sweat monster). And, yeah, sure, flowers may remind you of spring, but the head-to-toe print trend is still going strong, and we want in! With a little tweaking, these suits can totally fit into your fall wardrobe—just go with darker accessories or add tights if you're wearing a short suit. We're ALL ABOUT making the most of our clothes, and we found three bloggers who inspired us to take a fresh look at our floral-y spring pieces, so let's check it out!
Ke$ha on the October/November cover of 'VIBE.'

First off, WOWZA. Ke$ha sure knows how to grab our attention, amirite? *winks* The sultry blonde singer graced the October/November cover of VIBE in a retro glam, vampy-chic ensemble, which is a far cry from her typical all-American, '60s rocker style. We ain't mad, though! We love her platinum old Hollywood waves (it looks like her Skrillex-inspired shaved head is beginning to grow out!) paired with a super strong brow, kohl-rimmed eyes and a nude lip. She sported a GORGE long-sleeve, black lace gown with layered gold chains and tons of oversized rings. Mama like.
Kanye West at Paris Fashion Week.

This morning, Kanye West bestowed a gift upon the internet in the form of a one-minute song snippet titled "White Dress." *THANK YOU, UNIVERSE!* The new track MAY not surpass "Christian Dior Denim Flow" in terms of model name-dropping, or be as divisive as his epic Twitter fashion rant, but we've gotta give it up for Kanye, because the guy crams a LOT of style shoutouts into just 60 seconds. In the possible ode to his future wedding, the rapper's various references include everything from Kurt Cobain flannel to glistening lip gloss to Christian Louboutins. The only thing to make the song EVEN better? A handy-dandy picture guide to go along with the lyrics (ahem, obviously), so we've created one below. Enjoy!
In breaking Rihanna Navy news, our girl Rih has bestowed unto us via Instagram both the TITLE of her forthcoming seventh studio album (appropriately, it's Unapologetic) aaaaand the ALBUM ART. By now, we should all be pretty accustomed to seeing Rihanna in the buff, from her scantily clad "Nude" fragrance campaign to her topless Esquire UK cover spread, it's evident Ri is VERY comfortable in her own skin *wink wink nudge nudge*. The Unapologetic album cover features the "Diamonds" singer wearing little more than a thin body chain, itsy bitsy necklace, and dainty drop earrings with words and phrases and hashtags scrawled all across her visage. It's her BEAUTY LOOK, though, that's really amplifying the excitement for us over here in MTV's Style hub (Deep, rich, eggplant lips?? Yes, PLEASE!), and it inspired us to do a little searching for an aubergine lip color to call our own.
Taylor Swift and her brand new, special edition Keds.

First things first: We've been listening to Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble," the latest single from her upcoming album Red, on repeat in the most serious way ever since it was released. We might need an intervention soon, we'll let you know. To put it lightly, we are REALLY excited to hear the full album, and have October 22nd circled on our calendars (in red, duh). We also have another way to celebrate the release now, thanks to our favorite sneakers, Keds. The classic footwear brand announced this morning that they are signing Taylor for a three year collaborative deal, as they re-launch their brand as a women's only label. We've been wearing pair after pair of white Keds' Champions into the ground for years (although not that many pairs, they last a long time given the abuse we put them through), as have some of our fashion icons (most notably Sleigh Bells singer Alexis Krauss), but we might just have to switch up our color preference now that we've seen the first pair Taylor is coming out with. The sneaks, which are being released on the same day as her record, are, you guessed it, red!
Putting Das Racist in a streetwear campaign, let alone one governed by as much New York heart and tongue-in-cheek humor as Moss, is SUCH a good idea. It's the kind of perfect match that we really wish we had thought of ourselves. *princess waves goodbye to the missed opportunity* Heems and Dap (no Kool A.D. this time *sheds single tear*) star in the fall/winter lookbook (which, BTW, was shot entirely on an iPhone 5 in INSTAGRAM) walking around NYC, reenacting Grant Wood's "American Gothic", and exploring park foliage. And they do it all while wearing hyper-colorized, hyper-patterned tees, crewneck sweatshirts, and varsity jackets from Moss's most recent collection most of which you can actually cop RIGHT NOW (or at the very least, pre-order)!
JWoww, Sammi and Deena chat with MTV News.
It's been a long road for the ladies of Jersey Shore. From breakups, to fights, to more recent babies and engagements, we feel like we've been through everything with JWoww, Sammi Sweetheart, Deena, and Snooki. The fact that this is their last season in Seaside Heights feels bittersweet, because we can hardly imagine not being able to see all of what their lives have in store for them (which yeah, is probably pretty unhealthy) but at the same time, we're really excited to see what else they have up their sleeves. A lot has changed, we think, but in the end, they're all the same people we first met way back in season 1 (just check out our photo galleries of their style evolutions). We went to Sammi's first New York Fashion Week show this year, and in this exclusive video shot by our friends at MTV News, she reveals that she will be showing again this February. But is she the only one of the ladies in the shore house who we'll be seeing at Fashion Weeks to come? Watch the video to find out that and to hear what the girls think of their own style evolution, after the jump!
Rihanna in paper doll form.

So, during our INCREDIBLY. BUSY. workday we maaay have taken a small, itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny break to check out the "New In This Week" section on Topshop.com just, you know, for work research or whatever, and somehow we stumbled upon this gem—a Rihanna paper doll. WUT. This is basically our dream come true, y'all! For just $15, we can sort through RiRi's entire wardrobe and put together our favorite pieces (and beauty looks!) IRL. *high-fives entire world* The mastermind behind this concoction is Mel Simone Elliott, a UK-based artist that started I Love Mel—the same brand that did those killer Kate Moss and Ryan Gosling coloring books. Yassss.
