mtv Style is moving! come with us to mtv news »

With fewer than three weeks to go, the countdown to Halloween is officially ON. This tick-tock time crunch plus the pressure of churning out an epic, unforgettable and pop culture-relevant costume means you'd better get started stat. If you're still looking for outfit ideas, ahem, may we suggest PSY? He's only the biggest YouTube superstar since, like, forever, and basically exploded the internet this summer with "Gangnam Style." Considering we've already dissected the music video look by look, that makes the costume hunting EVEN easier. And with our group costume ideas inspired by each of the ridiculous characters in the clip, all you need to do now is grab your best friends and start plotting. It's SO easy, you'll even have time to learn his dance moves before the big night. Let's do this!

Who better to start off with than the man himself?! Whoever's lucky enough to nab PSY's action-ready ensemble has to be prepared to give MAJOR face, rock the dance moves like no other, and have the singer's swanky "I know I'm hot" saunter down (after all, with great power comes great responsibility...). Here PSY's dressed in his baby blue tuxedo jacket, black pants, bowtie and shades. He's working a slick dress shirt underneath all this, but if you don't feel like investing in one yourself (or raiding your dad's closet), a basic white tee will do. Replicate PSY's outfit with a light blue blazer, black skinny jeans, a bow tie, and some round sunglasses. Now all you need to do is perfect those facial expressions...

Looks like Karlie and Joan aren't the only ones getting into the show hosting game: Jourdan Dunn will be joining their ranks as the host of Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn, on Jay-Z's Life + Times Youtube channel. If the punny title didn't tip you off, Jourdan will be hosting a cooking show, and we're busy hypothesizing about what she might try whipping up in the test kitchen. Since Karlie already has the market cornered on model-made cookies, we suspect that Jourdan might be more focused on amateur chef staples. We were really proud when we cooked a really good roast chicken, so as amateur chefs ourselves we have some experience in this arena. Also we MIGHT sometimes pretend to be hosting our own cooking show while we're in the kitchen alone, but don't tell anyone. The other thing that has us thinking are the food-centric tweets the British model has been posting. While it doesn't seem that she's working her way through Julia Child, she's paying close attention to the details, which is even more important. See the tweet after the jump!

Snooki Sunglasses

We can't BELIEVE it's already been a year since Snooki debuted her first-ever sunglasses collection, and today the Jersey Shore girl continues her quest for total eyewear world domination (see: those spring shades that sold out in less than 24 hours) by releasing yet another set of affordable sunnies. Last night she tweeted, "Snooks shades" with an Instagram picture (above) showin' off her latest eyewear, and we have to admit that we were a little surprised by her specs! These super-dark aviators are definitely a deviation from her bold animal print or bright rhinestone-studded Snooki by Nicole Polizzi pieces, but perhaps she went a little more vampy thanks to a little holiday called "Halloween" coming up.

One Direction

WOW. *initiates slow clap* Way to GO, Seventeen magazine. Adorable Brit-Irish boy band One Direction has FINALLY graced the cover of a major U.S. magazine (their first one!!), and guess what? It's YOURS. And we have to say, they're looking exceptionally heart-meltingly approachable in this blue hued, color-coordinated casual wear. Heathered navys and henleys and light-weight fall knits! *fans self with nearby notebook* HOW. ARE. THEY. SO. CUTE??? As Seventeen mag's newest cover boys, the 1D dudes also posed for a full inside spread complete with 5 individual shots of Louis, Zayn, Harry, Liam, and Niall that are both great at giving a better look at each guy's style, but also are PERFECT for locker-decorating.

Odd Future Snap Case for Incase.

If you were lucky enough to hit up Odd Future's inaugural Carnival in Los Angeles, then you're probably ahead of the game. We're seriously jealous of you, because that means you already snagged the awesome iPhone cases that the OFWGKTA crew debuted at the concert-meets- amusement park-meets-massive party a few weeks ago. Designed in conjunction with Incase, the trio of feline-themed covers first made their appearance a few weeks back and are basically THE perfect addition to the ever-growing list of Golf Wang merch we're currently lusting after. But if you missed your shot to snag one in person, we've got good news for you. The gang's snap cases have officially hit the interwebs, and we for one are embarrassingly excited about it. First of all, it's Odd Future. Second of all, they're covered in CATS! Does it really get any better than that? Nah, we don't think so...

Jennifer Lawrence

With her bow and arrow-wielding Katniss cred AND her simultaneous rise as fashion's newest darling, there aren't many people who can hopscotch between glamour and The Hunger Games like Jennifer Lawrence. Sure, we all know that she's got a killer instinct (literally) as the star of the blockbuster action franchise. But within the last few months the actress has also graced the covers of British VOGUE, W, and landed a super high fashion spread in VOGUE, proving that maybe she really CAN do it all. And now she's taking it one step further, as the latest muse for Christian Dior. This morning WWD reported that the 22-year-old has been named the newest face for the label's Miss Dior handbags, an honor previously held by fellow stars like Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard.

If you weren't one of the few people lucky enough to attend Paris Fashion Week this season, you might feel, well, a tad shortchanged. Sure, you can peep endless runway photos and scour Instagram for super-cool backstage snaps, but nothing compares to actually being at a fashion show, amirite? Well, friends, we've got some good news—The Cut got their hands on the ENTIRE. SOUNDTRACK. from the highly-anticipated Saint Laurent spring/summer 2013 show, and it features music by THE Daft Punk. *cries tears of joy* Like, could this be more awesome, y'all? Our fave electronic French duo created a 15-minute (yes, that says FIFTEEN. MINUTE.) soundtrack for the models to strut their stuff to with vocals by Junior Kimbrough, an iconic blues musician who passed away in 1998.

Sexy Sesame Street Halloween Costumes

Would you wear a "sexy" Elmo, Big Bird, or Oscar the Grouch Halloween costume?

You heard it here first: "sexy" Sesame Street character Halloween costumes are real things that exist. I put the word "sexy" in quotation marks not just because it's a totally subjective term, but also because using it in such close proximity to a public broadcasting program that helped teach me the alphabet and how to count is pretty gross (to say the very least). Big Bird, Elmo, and pals have been making headlines and trending topics lately with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's mention of the large beloved avian puppet in the October 3rd presidential debate against incumbent Barack Obama. It actually makes the big yellow guy excellent fodder for Halloween costuming, but is rendering these cuddly childhood staples into décolletage flaunting, sheer-panelled ensembles that reveal more than enough under-butt necessarily the right move for your politically charged All Hallows Eve suiting? We're not so sure.

Diligent Destiny's Child fans already know that 2012 marks the 15th anniversary of the release of the group's first single "No, No, No" which catapulted DC into household name status. Beyonce announced via her website, that DC would be releasing a commemorative album, called Playlist: The Very Best of Destiny's Child, chock full of tracks from the group's 15 years. Along with pumping out enough hits to secure their spot as one of the biggest girl groups of all time, Destiny's Child was infamous for their seeeeeerious style game. In honor of the past 15 years of Bey, Kelly, Michelle, and yes, Farrah, LaTavia and LeToya, too, we rounded up 15 of DC's iconic looks. Check 'em all out after the jump and just TRY not to get nostalgic.

Pretty sure we have Gwen Stefani to thank for the '90s bindi trend, but that doesn't mean we'll ever forget the quadruple wink at Mumbai fashion.

Britney Spears Fantasy Twist

Ladies and gentlemen, Britney Spears' highly-anticipated Fantasy Twist fragrance campaign has finally arrived! She posted the ad to her Facebook page today saying, "1st look at my Fantasy Twist ad. Watch Extra tonight for behind the scenes from the shoot with Ellen Von Unwerth!" Oh, we will Britney, we WILL. But can we talk about how this campaign is everything we could have hoped for and more?! I mean, when we peeped Brit Bit behind-the-scenes during her shoot decked out in a head-to-toe gold Cleopatra-inspired ensemble, that one outfit alone was enough to satiate our Britney fix. Then, she reveals her campaign with not one, but TWO killer Britney looks, and we can barely handle it. *fans self* Since her Fantasy Twist fragrance features both of Britney's best-selling scents (Fantasy and Midnight Fantasy), she plays two contrasting roles to fit both moods—a soft and sweet blonde beauty and sultry, raven-haired vixen. Me-ow!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
