Before we dive into the all-out adorableness that you're about to endure, we need to get one thing off our chest. It's obvious that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are total BFFs, and we LOVE seeing them together at all times, but do you know how this cute couple came to be? They met at the MTV VMAs in 2002! Yeah. NBD, but we had a slightly large hand in bringing together the most 'dorbs twosome of all time. *brushes shoulders off* Most recently, the besties reunited for a KILLER fashion shoot for GQ's Men of the Year issue. Jimmy and Justin, who were named "Showmen Of The Year," held nothing back in this stylish and showstopping (heh, sorry) fashion spread. In their first look, (above) they are a dapper (and darling!) pair in slim-fitted suits and freshly shaven faces. Jimmy wears a black suit, crisp white shirt, gray skinny tie ensemble entirely from Dolce & Gabbana, and Justin sports a gray suit, white shirt, and black skinny tie from the Calvin Klein Collection. For accessories, we love their matching tie bars from The Tie Bar (appropriately named!) and Jimmy's Tom Ford pocket square for an extra touch of class. But, um, heed this warning before you move on: Your heart might explode with love and rainbows and happy feelings and general love for people and uncontrollable urges to hug everything around you after you see the rest of these photos. You've been warned.
Chloe Moretz, Olivia Wilde, and Amanda Seyfried attend the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards.

As one would expect from an event thrown by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) AND Vogue magazine, the young Hollywood starlets showed up in droves, all clad in their finest threads. While no one trend or design house prevailed on the red carpet (though Joseph Altuzarra, Pamela Love, and Creatures of the Wind did all score high honors, cash prizes, and über-valuable business mentorships), the pretty young thangs turned it out in a display of what the fashion community's best and brightest have to offer.
Even at her green age, Chloë Moretz proves she has the style chops to run the same circles as her older counterparts in this near floor-length printed Suno frock and super interesting, lattice-y, macrame-looking heels. Styled in an easy middle part updo and a bold red lip, Chloe is a total boho-chic beauty. Olivia Wilde is one of those ladies that could honestly look drop dead in anything, but that doesn't stop her from turning it out on the red carpet. Olivia gracefully toes the line between sexy and sweet with this keyholed-yet-full-skirted Cushnie et Ochs paired with a simple pointy pump, effortless waves, and an elegant cat eye. Amanda Seyfried takes some risks in this feathered dress by Prabal Gurung and intricately laced Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, but thanks to appropriate styling and under accesorizing, Amanda's look is ballerina-inspired without appearing to be ripped straight from the next production of Swan Lake.

Happy BREAKING DAWN week!!! Yes, lords and ladies, the moment has finally arrived, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 is officially HERE. We actually get to see the wedding, the DRESS, the honeymoon, and (*spoiler alert*) all of the CRAY BABY magic that is the first of the final installment to this triumphant love story, and we get to see it in t-minus 3 DAYS and counting (a little less if you have midnight showing tickets). If you're like us, then you've been glued to the 'puter since last night, ingesting all of the style wonderment that comes along with the cacophonous juggernaut that is a Twilight premiere. Not only have fans been camping out in "tent city" since last Wednesday, the speculation on what each star will wear has been high.
Will Kristen Stewart choose something short and angular? (Nope, she wore a long and sparkly J. Mendel spring 2012 runway gown slit wayyyy up the leg.) Will Ashley Greene stun in Donna Karan since she's the face of the brand? (Yep, she wore custom-made Donna.) What about the dudes? Robert Pattinson wore a super tailored gray Gucci suit while Taylor Lautner style-slayed it in Alexander McQueen. But was there anything unusual? (Ohhhhh, YES, but we'll get to that in a moment.) If there was one trend of the night, it was long and lovely gowns on zee ladies. MTV News captured it all live from the black carpet, and we're here to break it DOWN...
Last night's Gossip Girl was somewhat of a transitionary episode, but nonetheless brimming with juicy dramz. Kicking things off with Serena's (Blake Lively) new gig working at the Spectator for Diana (Elizabeth Hurley) who wants Serena to start a blog to rival GG herself (sidenote: is it just me or is there a weird "gotta catch 'em all" feel to Diana's Spectator staffing?). Diana nabbed Serena after her former job with Jane (Michael Michele) fell through when she halted production on the film version of Dan's (Penn Badgley) book. Dan's supposed to be out on a book tour but has apparently been missing meet and greets. Maybe dropping off the bestseller list hurt his pride?
Charlie (aka Ivy) (Kaylee DeFer) has gotten herself wrapped up in a cougar love triangle with Diana and Nate (Chace Crawford) which, with the sudden reappearance of Ivy's ex-boyfriend Max, can only lead to major trouble for her secret double life. Prince Louis (Hugo Becker) is away on business, and with his recent slip to the dark and scheming, and Chuck's (Ed Westwick) public turning of a new leaf, Blair (Leighton Meester) is *cough* once again *cough* conflicted about her choice (though she'd never admit that). Blair plans to reveal that the real Chuck Bass still exists deep down. Just about everything comes to a head at Chuck's masked masquerade party slash play, but if you haven't caught up, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

OK, so, we're OB-SESSED with nail art. I mean, who isn't these days? It's like having 10 mini blank canvases just AWAITING the touch of an artist. Actually, come to think of it, have you ever treated your nails as mini masterpieces? Like, actual art? (Think: Those old timey people you learn about in your high school art class that you always see in museums.) Well, lately we've been spotting this everywhere—ladies are trying to re-create actual masterpieces on their fingertips. *gasp* It seems prettttyyy tough (if not impossible), BUT thanks to the interwebs, extremely talented artists, and our stealth sleuthing, *brushes shoulders off* we found some absolutely KILLER nail art inspired by some of the most famous artists in the world. I KNOW, I KNOW, it sounds incredible, and it is. So let's dive into this week's nail art trend to try:
THE TREND: Mini masterpieces on your fingertips!
THE CHALLENGE: Re-creating famous (and giant) pieces of art on your itsy bitsy nails.
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY: Um, on a scale from 1 to 10, this is like a 12.
Replicas of Michael Jackson's jackets from 'Thriller' and 'Beat It.'

Without a doubt, two of THE most iconic jackets in music video history lie in the hands of Mr. Michael Jackson. His sharp-shouldered red and black leather popped-collar jacket from "Thriller" made SUCH a huge mark on the fashion and music world, and MJ's red exposed zipper "Beat It" jacket paired with his cropped black pants, white socks, and slip-on loafers embodies one of the most remembered outfits from Michael's career. (EVERYONE can picture him dancing in the brightly lit hallway with his bouncy curls and badass moves, amiright?) Well, if you've always wondered where you can get your hands on one of those incredible jackets, we've got something to add to the top of your Christmas wish list: The J5 Collection (a clothing company dedicated to The Jackson 5's musical legacy) released limited-edition replicas of the oh-so-famous Michael Jackson jackets. The jackets are signed by Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon (including a replication of Michael Jackson's signature) and are inspired by the original Deborah Nadoolman design, which was tailored to fit Michael's exact proportions. The limited-edition jackets cost a PRETTY penny, though. They cost—wait for it, waitttt for it—$2,350 a pop. (Ouch!) But, there's a catch—only 500 of each jacket has been produced. Let's hope you've been good this year! (Or know how to beg REALLY, REALLY well.)
Victoria Justice for 'Interview' magazine.

Known for its ability to rough up even the sweetest of pretty young thangs in their editorial spreads, Interview magazine is at it again with this shoot of Victoria Justice. You probably know here best from her role as aspiring singer Tori Vega on Nickelodeon's Victorious, but we have our eyes on Justice and her burgeoning career. She's been one of our 'It Girls' to watch this year and from appearances at Perez Hilton's birthday bash to award shows to New York Fashion Week, it's evident that her style star is rising, too. Though she's usually styled in age-appropriate frocks featuring their fair share of glitter and candy colors, this shoot for Interview shows an edgier, steamier side to Victoria.
Lady Gaga's bottoms lately are a bit questionable.
Photo: Splash News
We're all aware of Lady Gaga's street style shenanigans and have grown used to impossible shoes, kooky accessories, and even the odd leotard worn in public. But Gaga's recent appearance in London has us scratching our top-knotted heads. We've seen the no-pants look before (e.g., la leotard), but our Lady's pairing of a perfectly tailored top-half with an utterly nonexistent bottom half makes no sense. She wore the outfit while returning to her hotel after an appearance on The X Factor and looked astute and scholarly, but as the eye travels downward, this fishnetted leg situation is perplexing because A) it doesn't really work, and B) it's chilly over there in London-town. The day before, she sported a halter top and shorts from the Yves Saint Laurent SPRING collection too. There was nary a coat or scarf in sight. Mother Monster may be the matriarch of the little monster tribe, but does that mean she needs to wear mom shorts too? And in the height of autumn? What's going on here?
Kanye West on March 6 and Rihanna on Nov. 14.

Dudes, how weird is THIS? Kanye West and Rihanna were spotted sporting almost identical outfits several months apart! Both musicians wore the Riccardo Tisci-designed Givenchy growling Rottweiler tee (Eep! Scary dog! Don't eat us!) paired with a black varsity jacket and black leather pants. Save their shoes ('Ye wore black high-top leather sneakers and RiRi wore black leather booties), their outfits are preettttty freakin' similar. Back in March when we spotted Yeezy in the Rottweiler tee, Liv Tyler was ALSO sporting the same shirt, but she she styled it with a black satin-trim blazer and leggings—basically wearing it more as a tunic and less of tee. When we peeped this image of Rihanna leaving a nightclub in London early this morning, we thought we were takin' crazy pills. HAVEN'T WE SEEN THIS OUTFIT BEFORE?!
Dakota and Elle Fanning for "W" magazine.

Not that we're surprised by this, but it seems the world is just as obsessed with Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning as we are here at MTV Style. In fact, we'd like to officially deem them THE FABULOUS FANNING SISTERS (FFS) because they are ferociously fantastic in so many ways (including being astoundingly alliterative sentence subjects). Aside from their precocious acting chops and stellar red carpet style moments, the sisters have recently fronted both perfume and clothing line campaigns for Marc Jacobs and have landed themselves on the December cover of W magazine. Looking almost like twins with their gigantic blue doe eyes staring into your soul from the cover, the gals wear similar Valentino Haute Couture gold lace gowns, pink lips, and cascading platinum blonde hair for a holiday look that's all about sophisticated glam. And in terms of haute couture sparkle-wear, this is just the beginning, folks...
