Kelly Rowland stopped by MTV.com recently to dish about style. After all, she rocked latex bodysuits in her new video for Commander (which just premiered on MTV.com!), so we knew she'd have a few things to say. And she did! Kelly actually told us she wants to start designing her own line of accessories soon. "I would like to do a sunglasses line," she said. "[I want to] make different glasses for different face shapes and different styles. Like if you have an oval face, then you have a line for oval shapes." Does she have a name picked out? "It would be cool to name it Faces or something like that."
Kelly also told us that she has come to terms with not returning as a host for the second season of Bravo's The Fashion Show, a competition reality show aimed to find the next great designer. She co-hosted the first season with designer Isaac Mizrahi, but Bravo announced that Kelly had been booted off and the supermodel Iman would replace her as a host in May. "I'm happy that Iman is doing it," she told us. "She knows about fashion just as much as I do, if not more, because she's a model, she lives in that world. She knows what feels right, she knows how to wear it. So, she's perfect."

We already knew before we hit play that Sky Ferreira’s new video for “I Blame Myself” would be all about the clothes. For her new My Night, My Time single, Sky teamed up with online retailer Ssense and System magazine on what could be the future of pop music: the shoppable music video. Ssense and System have made a few changes to the format since they released the first shoppable music video with Iggy Azalea. In the new format, you shop after you watch—rather than as it plays—which doesn’t take us out of the video’s world, which is, in this case, an abandoned lot. Of course, the clothes, front and center, do not disappoint.

In the opening scene, the camera tricks us for a moment into thinking we’re staring at the back of a dude before it does a 180º and we see that it’s actually Sky. She’s styled in a Givenchy star patch leather bomber jacket, a Christopher Kane hoodie, Saint Laurent crystal-embellished tights, a Saint Laurent biker skirt, and an amazing pair of black-and-white basketwoven Acne kicks with beaded flower Simone Rocha socks.
Pieces from Katy Perry's Claire's collection.
Anyone who has ever shopped at Claire's knows that it is the one-stop shop for fun and colorful accessories. So it made perfect sense when Katy Perry—the most fun and colorful human in the world—announced that she was going to design a collection for the store. Ever since we heard this fabulous bit of news a few months ago, we've been trying to imagine the holographic bling Katy would bring to the table. Would there be Egyptian necklaces? Prism earrings? Jungle-cat rings? It's been keeping us up at night, to be honest.
Well, stop imagining and start looking, my friends. Claire's just released a sneak peek of Katy's Prism collection, and it's like a dream come true. It looks like the line is a mix of prismatic shine and "Roar" jungle vibes (everyone knows Katy loves a good theme). In the sparkle department, we get bedazzled bobby pins, a charm bracelet, and a huge Prism pendant necklace, all sticking to the triangular motif of Katy's Prismatic World Tour. There are also nameplate-esque necklaces, only instead of names, they say "Roar" and "Champion." I can't tell what the middle one says, but I'm guessing, like, "Tiger" or "Fighter."
As you can probably imagine, we are pretttty excited to see what everyone will wear to the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday. It is perhaps the most casual awards show out there, which leads to memorable outfits year after year. With a number of our faves like Lupita Nyong'o, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone, and Shailene Woodley slated to appear, and Ellie Goulding and Rihanna on tap to perform, we're basically counting down the nanoseconds until the red carpet.
Because it is Movie Awards weekend, we figured we'd dedicate this week's #TBT to the 10 most memorable outfits (IMHO) of Movie Awards past. Check them out in all their glory, below.

Before Ryan Gosling was ~Ryan Gosling~, he was The Dude From The Notebook™. At the 2005 Movie Awards, Ryan decided to make a political statement, wearing a plain white tee that simply had "Darfur" printed across the front. He wore a black blazer with the shirt (hello, it's a red carpet), but ditched it when he and Rachel McAdams decided to reenact their kiss from The Notebook on stage. Rachel was dressed in bootcut jeans, pointed toe stilettos, and a strapless lace bustier, which is perhaps the most 2005-y outfit to ever exist.

We’ve been working overtime lately to keep up with Lady Gaga’s new looks, but we might be finally catching a break on our fashion math because Lady Gaga’s latest obsession is a familiar one: florals. Gaga’s flowery kick started at her Roseland Ballroom residency when Gaga, never one to miss a theme, accessorized with lots of flowers—there was her Botticelli flower crown look, her “flowers can be clothes” nude-suit look, a purple rose ode to Prince, and the list goes on. But lately, Gaga has taken to ornate retro prints that would make your grandma’s couch jealous.
Yesterday, Gagaloo made the internet think she was pulling an April Fools' joke when she walked around in a relatively tame floral outfit. She wore a pair of high-waisted, white tropical floral pants with a black top in a matching print, her hair long and straight, and accessorized with a pair of Saint Laurent oxfords, sunglasses Terry Richardson might already own, and a black Birkin bag.

Hear that? It's the sound of you singing "I CAN'T STAND THE RAIN" to yourself over and over for the rest of the day. Why? Because I'm dropping another #TBT on you, and Missy Elliott's "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" is the proud owner of an Ann Peebles-sampled hook that just won't quit. Today is the first day of spring (vernal equinox for all my science folk) which, for those of us on the East Coast, means a lot of rain in our near future. Thus, the song selection. (Well, that, and Broad City briefly spoofed it last night.) Now, without further ado, I'm breaking down the FASHUN from this iconic Missy x Hype Williams joint in this week's #TBT.
Haim for 'Marie Claire.'

I know Haim is strictly a trio, but that doesn't keep me from wishing I could sing back-up or play the tambourine for them. I think our lack of shared genes might be a problem, sadly, but a girl can dream. The band of talented sisters has us all hooked with their stream of infectious hits and even more infectious fashion sense. Their penchant for vintage-rock style shows up in everything from music videos (most recently in "If I Could Change Your Mind") to magazine spreads, and Haim's new fashion profile for Marie Claire is no exception. The trio's leather-and-lace persona is on full display, but we also get to see each member's individual style—a distinction that anyone with a sister can certainly appreciate.
