If you've been spazzing out over Azealia Banks' "Liquorice" video for the past couple months (like we have), you'll be happy to know that there mayyyy be a (fashion-y!) payoff for watching it on repeat. Azealia told her fans (via Twitter, of course) that she's holding a contest with a nice little surprise at the end. She said, "I need you all to record your best covers of 'Liquorice' with your webcams! You can do a verse, the whole song, a parody video... anything!" She plans on posting the submissions to her Tumblr later this week, and the 20 lucky winners will receive a custom Tatty Devine "Liquorice" necklace in a cool glittery black. Ummm, haiiii, we need that.

Elizabeth Olsen, Dakota Fanning

Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning are both certified style stars in their own right, but when you throw two of Hollywood's coolest new ingenues together on a movie set...well, you know it's gonna be interesting. The twosome have been running around Manhattan and Brooklyn all summer long filming their new drama Very Good Girls, and we've finally caught a couple of glimpses of their on-set style. We're used to seeing the duo repping big-name designers like Marc Jacobs, Valentino and Lanvin on the red carpet and fronting major ad campaigns (Dakota, we're looking at you...), but for their new coming-of-age flick, they kept things casual in complementary summertime duds. We're talking about stuff we all have in our own closets, like denim cut-offs, t-shirts, and sneakers from brands like ASOS, Superga. Not to mention, enough thrifted pieces to stock their own vintage store.

Leandra Medine for ASOS.

It's kind of embarrassing how often we look at our closet with sad, wanting puppy dog eyes and wish, The Secret style, that one day we'll have a closet like Leandra Medine, the whip smart, beyond cool blogger behind The Man Repeller. Unfortunately, however, we currently lack the funds to deck ourselves out in head to toe ready-to-wear the way Medine does (one day, though...), a fact which consistently bums us out, probably more than is healthy. The kind, gracious, wonderful people over at ASOS understand our plight, however, and had the great Man Repeller curate a collection of her favorite, most repelling pieces from their site. Sweatshirts, mutilated denim, and arm parties abound, with more refined, yet still loud, brocade and leather pieces sprinkled throughout. Although these pieces might be the opposite of repelling on their own, when styled by Medine they begin to resemble a veritable explosion.

Can't hang ten on your longboard quiteee yet? Well, you pretty start practicing, because Diane von Furstenberg and Roxy have just announced that they're teaming up on a surfwear line...and if THAT'S not enough incentive to hit the waves, then honestly, we don't know what is. The swim, surf, and lifestyle brand is no stranger to awesomely high fashion collabs. After all, it joined forces with Cynthia Rowley on last year's amazing collection of wetsuits (and everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Alexa Chung agrees!). But this time around, expect tons of cute stuff you can wear in AND out of the water.

Katy Perry Brazil

We feel like we haven't seen Katy Perry in FOREVS, so when pics of her in Brazil surfaced this morning, it was basically like Christmas in July. Eeee! We couldn't WAIT to talk about all the outfits she's been wearing while promoting her Katy Perry: Part of Me movie south of the equator. She started off the day in Rio de Janeiro sporting a revealing lime green Versus frock paired with burgundy Brian Atwood "Power Studs" heels and a freshly-shorn 'do. (We'll admit we kinda miss her purple tips. *sniff sniff*) Katy kept her accessories simple as to not, erm, distract from the diamond cut-outs around the chest. I mean, we know no one would be looking at her jewelry anyway. Moving on!

Olivia Wilde

With a whopping 9 movies on the horizon and some serious style cred under her belt, Olivia Wilde has a lot on her plate. But then again, this Andover grad is a total overachiever, and her latest project is a sure-to-be hit for everyone involved...yep, including us. The actress and activist has teamed up with Alternative Apparel on a new messenger bag/ backpack hybrid that's as cool as it is charitable. After spending the last few years involved in rebuilding Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, Olivia co-founded Campaign Happiness, an organization aimed at helping local development through rebuilding efforts, education, and more. "We've struggled to raise money for the organization for a while now," she explained last night at the bag's launch event in New York. "Everyone is very generous, but it's hard in this economy. So we wanted to find a way to combine commerce and get people to buy things they'd buy anyway, but to have the proceeds go toward somewhere great." The solution? An army green shoulder bag that works equally as well roughing it outdoors as it does pounding city blocks. (Just ask Olivia, she's used it for both!)

One of the many perks of working at MTV Style is that, rather than there just being seasons punctuated by holidays and our birthdays once a year, there are also the annual MTV Video Music Awards! And the time has come! We've been mentally preparing for this moment, well, since the dust settled on the 2011 MTV VMAs, and here it is! First of all: Check out the full list of nominees here. Second of all: Start voting! Of course all of our favorite fashion plates were nominated, from Beyonce (Best Female Video, Best Editing) and Katy Perry (Best Female Video, Video Of The Year, Best Art Direction, Best Visual Effects), to M.I.A. (Video of the Year, Best Cinematography) and Lana Del Rey (Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction), the ladies and gents (lest we forget Kanye and Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, or Drake, all also nominated) of the MTV VMAs are also some of the most well heeled. We also have just a few first timers nominated, so we wanted to look back at what some of our nominees wore last year, to get you excited for the upcoming red carpet madness. Check out the looks, and then, again, don't forget to VOTE for your favorites!

The 2011 VMAs were a big year for couples. Between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber canoodling on the red carpet (cute) to Beyonce announcing her pregnancy with husband Jay-Z (MAJOR cute), love was in the air. Beyonce, who is nominated for Best Female Video for "Love On Top" and Best Choreography for "Countdown," this year, showed off her baby bump on the red carpet in a stunning draped Lanvin wrap dress. We're sure she'll go classic and elegant again this year, being a new mama and all. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber, who is nominated for Best Male Video and Best Pop Video for "Boyfriend" this year, would have won the Weirdest Accessory award, if such a category existed. He took to the red carpet in an outfit reminiscent of Kanye's 2010 VMAs performance look, but accessorized with an albino snake, which lay curled in the singers hand as he swaggered down the runway. *ugh snakes shudder* Snakes or no, Selena, who is nominated for Best Female Video for "Love You Like A Love Song," looked incredible whether she was smooching her man or no, in a lacy, elegant Julien Macdonald gown.

Thanks to the Olympics starting on Friday night, I spent the entire weekend indoors watching sports. Don't even GIVE me those judgy eyes. I mean, how could I miss an opportunity to, like, stare at really buff people do flips 'n things while I sat on my couch eating snacks? I couldn't. My favorite part, though, (besides the ripped dudes) was shouting at the screen every time I saw someone flashing nail art. Seriously, that ALONE could be a sport considering how blazin' fast these swimmers and runners are. *dusts shoulders off* This year there certainly wasn't a shortage of ladies showing off their team spirit with decorated tips, so I poured my blood, sweat and tears into rounding up EVERY. SINGLE. PICTURE I could find of nail art at the Olympics. So here they are—the exhaustive list of the best Olympics nails (so far!).

Venus Williams went ALL OUT in red, white, and blue nails with a touch of gold glitter and one heck of an accent nail. Bonus points for the matching braids and liquid eyeliner. Me-ow.

Ryan Lochte

Let's talk about Ryan Lochte. He's the 27-year-old American swimmer who made his Olympic debut at the 2004 Athens Olympics when he was just 19. He swam alongside Olympic phenom Michael Phelps (ever heard of him?) in the men's 400m individual medley this weekend and won GOLD for the good ol' U-S-of-A. BUT he was reportedly in danger of not receiving his medal because of a controversial accessory move en route to the podium: the dude popped in a set of American flag grills. It's not like we've never seen grills before (we ARE the network that brought you From G's to Gents sweetheart Riff Raff after all), it's just that, when you're part of a team that has posh Opening Ceremony uniforms crafted by Ralph Lauren complete with smart little berets, throwing on a pair of diamond grills is definitely a curveball. For a dude to pull a style stunt this ballsy, we KNEW there had to be more to this budding fashion icon, so we did a little research. To follow are our findings, and in the spirit of the international games, we're doling out (and subtracting) points as they contribute to Ryan's overall style score.

Daria, Marc by Marc Jacobs

Reason #105432 that summer TV rules: our favorite sarcastic, smart, and stylish pessimist Daria is officially back! Starting today we're rolling out episodes of eponymous cult series as part of Retro MTV- the same block of shows that delivers classic faves like The Hills and Laguna Beach. And while Daria's influence over kids of the '90s is a total no-brainer, turns out the Lawndale High School students have inspired the style world, as well. Besides giving tons of easy outfit ideas that you can (literally) wear everyday, Daria, Jane, Brittany and Quinn have also rocked some of Fall 2012's biggest trends.... about a decade before they actually happened. The most obvious example comes from Marc Jacobs, whose Marc by Marc Jacobs collection was stocked with Daria Morgendorffer classics: pleated skirts, combat boots, and thick plastic glasses. When Lindsey Wixson and co. stomped down the runway in utilitarian lace-ups and black frames slipping down their noses, a post-punk soundtrack ringing in the background, the reference came across loud and clear...and we have a feeling Daria would definitely approve.

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