Lana Del Rey

Watching this whole Lana Del Rey x H&M relationship unfold has been SUCH a treat for us here at MTV Style. I mean, not only is it a perfect example of the cross roads of music and fashion (which is, like, totally our beat), but we've been tracking and head-over-heels for the gangster Nancy Sinatra since the very first time we laid eyes on her sculpted eyebrows and absolute hairsprayed perfection. Her mane may be a little darker now, but Lana is still every bit the retro-channelling vixen we've grown to love as the face of H&M's "L.A. Noir" campaign and even performed for the launch party last night in New York City.

myThread Pavilion by Jenny Sabin.

Let's face it. Fashion has its well-manicured hands on just about every conceivable artistic medium there is. And to quote Li Lo à la Mean Girls, "The limit does not exist!" This week, we see designers and artists merge with fashion, delivering a WHOLE new meaning to Art with a capital "A."

Nike Art Installation
Nike unveiled artist Jenny Sabin’s "myThread Pavilion" for the brand's latest installment of its Flyknit Collective. Sabin's installation is inspired by performance and lightness, two ideals of the Nike Flyknit shoe. This thing is a SERIOUS circus of color and we're starting to think Nike's gone all Fantasia on us! {via Hypebeast}

Animated Bunny Accessories
Juuuust in case you weren't already convinced of Susie Bubble's eternal cuteness, check out the stop-motion animation film she posted on her blog. The short, which literally animates Katie Hillier's Spring/Summer '13 accessories line, brings London Fashion Week to a delightfully refreshing close. It also has us belting, "Man, LIFE IS JUST GRAND!" {via Style Bubble}

Ginger Spice On Display
People of the world! Geri Halliwell’s Union Jack platform boots (and plenty of other jaw-droppingly UH-MAZING shoes) are on display at the historic Northampton Museum and Art Gallery in England. From human hair to, er, human quirks (hint: 50 Shades of Grey), the collection features designs both centuries-old and unexpectedly risqué! {via Coco Perez}

Swatch Gets A Tattoo
Swatch recently unveiled its latest collaboration, a limited edition release of watches designed by tattoo artist Tin-Tin and Swiss visual artist Emmanuelle Antille. Drawing inspiration from classic tattoo graphics, each piece is JUST timeless (*ba dum TSH!*).

Louis Vuitton Goes Sci-Fi
Louis Vuitton embarks on a celestial journey for its jewelry collection in new a short film, "Haute Joaillerie," or "High Jewelry." The film is a kaleidoscope of color and sound, and the bass drops just in time for a high-fashion fist pump. {via High Snobiety}

Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Campaign

If you haven't been keeping up with/totally spazzing over Nicki Minaj's new Pink Friday perfume since she debuted the bottle last month, y'all have some SERIOUS catching up to do. Basically, it's like this—her bottle is a mini gold bust complete with Barbz signature pink wig and baby pink lips. Also, it has a custom mini nameplate necklace hanging around her neck. IN. SANE. But today, Nicki took it to the next level by tweeting out her first-ever Pink Friday campaign and ooohhhh man, we can barely handle it! In her first image, she stands tall (literally) against a New York City skyline and emulates the oh-so-famous Statue of Liberty stance wearing—SURPRISE—all pink! She sported a ruffled shoulder hot pink jacket with a matching leotard, leggings, tutu, and super sparkly (!!!) shoes.

Reason #1032 we're obsessed Miu Miu: besides the clothes (duh), the Italian label always shows love to Hollywood's brightest ingenues... often times before anyone else. From Hailee Steinfeld to Mia Wasikowska, Miu Miu's been seriously in tune with our girl crushes the past few seasons, letting the actresses show their stuff in the quirky-cool ad campaigns. But this season the brand is trying something a little different with a series of short fashion films called The Miu Miu Women’s Tales, and yes, they're awesome. The fourth installment just hit the internet and stars some of our favorite actresses as L.A. women leading vastly different lives. Think Patricia Clarkson as a film editor, ex-Bond girl Gemma Arterton as a young mother, and Aubrey Plaza as a blogger. And all of them, it should go without saying, are IMPECCABLY dressed.

Olivia Palermo London Fashion Week

When fashion week rolls around, we try to pull out ALL the stops with our ensembles--mostly because we know that everyone is bringing their A-game to the shows. But now that NYFW and London Fashion Week are over, we have the chance to look back at some of our fashion faves and check out justtt how much they killed it this season. At the tippy top of our list is The City's Olivia Palermo. She continually ba-rought it during LFW, but not in the typical sleek head-to-toe black kind of way, she went for super bright hues that she colorblocked oh-so-effortlessly. And for that, we bow down.

Betsey and Lulu Johnson at Betsey's 70th birthday party.
Photo: Getty

Lulu Johnson has quite and enviable pedigree. Not only is her mom Betsey Johnson, whose 70th birthday party we just attended, but Lulu grew up right at the helm of her eponymous clothing line as both muse and design assistant (how's that for training?). It's only natural, therefore, that she would grow up to be a designer in her own right, and that's exactly what she's doing with her new line, Lulu and Allison (the 'Allison' would be her best friend and co-designer, Allison McClellen). Now, we're pretty sure anything designed my a woman who had not only grown up with a fashion designer mom but also with access to THE BETSEY JOHNSON ARCHIVE would have to be pretty bonkers. However, Lulu claims to be more down to earth, or at least less sartorially adventurous, than her mom. In a new video from The Stylish (which you can watch after the jump) Lulu describes her line as, "a line for women who still want to be hip, sexy, and cool," while Betsey describes her own line as, "very punky, very downtown Sally Brown, very MTV." First of all, we are beyond pleased to be used as a descriptor for one of our favorite designers EVER, and second of all, it sounds like Lulu will not be following directly in her mother's footsteps with her line. We're going to get to follow along the whole way, though, as the two are also about to begin a reality show.

We can always count on the scene outside the Marc Jacobs show to be a little crazy, but this season the New York Armory was even more of a spectacle than usual, thanks to Scott Stevenson and his impromptu outdoor fashion show. The 24-year-old designer literally hit the streets this month, staging a renegade runway on the sidewalk that took place just as guests were filing out of Marc Jacobs. Inspired by the heat of summer and DIY to the core, Scott's Spring 2013 collection featured sheer blouses, cropped jackets, and conceptual cutout details- what he dubs as a new kind of "summer layering." The concept of a guerilla-style fashion presentation is nothing new, and we really feel that nobody did it better than X-Girl in 1994. In fact, it was Scott's friend Todd Oldham who originally made the comparison. But despite stunts like sewing models into their outfits on the subway ride uptown and planting the presentation directly on the sidewalk, Scott told us his one-man show arose organically out of the need to make a statement without many resources. "It came about from the necessity to create and not having any money to do it."

Wearable luggage brought to you by Jaktogo.

Travelling is hard. Not the part where you're seeing the far reaches of the globe, experiencing culture, slurping iced lattes out of a swizzle straw, soaking in the WORLD and such. I'm talking about schlepping your goodies from coast to coast. I'm talking about the nitty gritty: printing your tickets, taking your shoes off, getting wanded, watching a security officer throw away your conditioner, putting your shoes back on, and the rest of that TSA hokey pokey. On TOP of that, it's a constant struggle to get all your luggage to stay under those pesky 50-pound weight restrictions, but a girl's gotta have options, AMIRITE? *flips hair* Yes, it's all verrrrry #firstworldproblems, but I have both the patience and the upper-body strength of a four-year-old, so go ahead and color me high-maintenance, and the people at Jaktogo who make a mini-collection of wearable luggage aren't doing much to help me think I'm alone in my frustrations.

Beyonce Onesies Obama

Beyonce and the onesies she designed for Runway to Win.

As we get closer and closer election day (November 6!), more fashion industry faves are pitching in to show their support for President Barack Obama. Earlier this year, Marc Jacobs and Prabal Gurung created custom tees for Anna Wintour's high-end designer Runway to Win product line, but the newest (and perhaps cutest!) addition to the collection are these 'dorbs baby onesies that Beyonce and her mom Tina Knowles made. All together now: Awwwwwww! The House of Dereon designer and new mama is already proving that her baby girl Blue Ivy is oh-so-fashion-forward (I mean, she wears Marc Jacobs slippers when she's less than a year old. Case closed.), so Bey wants to make sure infants across the nation can also show their presidential support—in the cutest way possible, of course.

t-shirts fashion week

T-shirts on the runway at Acne, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Ashish.

Say what?! Oh, that's just some of our favorite designers channeling their inner wordsmiths on the runway this season. Acne, Phillip Lim, and Ashish clearly had a LOT on their minds for Spring/Summer 2013, with models parading graphic tees down the catwalk...literally giving us a mouthful. We hear that the Acne collection was inspired by Emmylou Harris' cover of "Wrecking Ball," so it makes sense that the clothes repped their country heritage with modified gallon hats and serious denim. Designer Jonny Johansson also paid tribute to the musical backbone with t-shirts stamped with, yes, "MUSIC." There's no denying this message. 3.1 Phillip Lim hit the grunge scene hard in the label's NYC show, showing layers on layers on layers of sheers, sparkles, and prints. But what we loved most about the downtown edge of the collection HAD to be the designer's "I <3 Nueva York" tees (complete with an upside-down heart). The tourist shop staple has never looked so cool.

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