Right on the heels of the release of Katy Perry's "Unconditionally" music video, Iggy Azaela sat down with the new COVERGIRL on MTV to talk about the vid, touring, songwriting, and what she would name a cat if it were presented to her (Kiggy, obviously). Both looked fabulous as always.
Iggy skewed very formal for your average interviewer, decked out in her much talked about 2013 EMA cut-out dress by Dilek Hanif, Cartier jewelry, and red Jimmy Choo shoes. Katy, on the other hand, wore a look that was totally different from her turquoise Zac Posen dress, her mirrored performance outfit, and her fishnet/Chanel post-show dress. She opted instead for a short, Peter Pan collar dress from Shibuya 109 in Tokyo, which she paired with black knee socks. (If you're keeping track, that brings her to a total of 4 outfits that night. *wipes sweat off upper lip*

Katy Perry really is growing up, y'all! In a stark contrast to her bubblegum Candyfornia image of yesteryear, KP has released the music video for "Unconditionally," the second official single off of her Prism album, and it's super mature and gorgeous (just like her!). Where the lyric video for the track was really stripped down and bare, the full-fledged music video is more about beautiful, rich imagery and symbolism which Katy revealed in her MTV First with Iggy Azalea was meant to express that abstract phenomenon of falling in love—and apparently unconditional love also comes with a swagged out closet of designer goods, so sign us up! We were fortunate enough to catch up with Katy's long-time trusted stylist Johnny Wujek to pick his brain about the ogle-worthy wardrobe and its inspiration.

Today in “duh” news, Puma rolled out a new ad campaign featuring four budding “It” girls who were all hand-picked and art directed by singer/eBay curator/Queen of Mixed Prints, Solange Knowles. OK, so her role in the campaign isn’t ~exactly~ what we imagined, but we’ve had a sinking suspicion for a while now that Solange proooobably had something in the works with the increasingly stylish shoe brand. (We just thought it’d be more along the lines of, like, being the face, err, foot of the ad, or perhaps designing some special edition print-heavy kicks.)

Sure, if there's ONE thing about Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video you're talking about, it's likely that eye-popping Kim Kardashian cameo. (ICYMI: girl is topless—NOT naked, she's wearing jeans, y'all—and bouncing all over Ye's motorcycle. #innuendo) But here at MTV Style, our collective mind is on a single track, and not even Ye
trying to make "fetch" happen inserting his *achem* buxom fiancé into this music video can distract us from the fashion at hand. So, let's talk about these layered plaids.
Katy Perry gets prismatic.

Yesterday, Katy Perry announced via Twitter that she'll be spanning the globe in 2014 to support her new album, Prism, on the Prismatic World Tour (which kicks off in London in May). Obviously, our response was: MEOW! Also, YAY! The release of Perry's fourth studio album has ushered in a new era of style for the chameleonic singer, who's long been a courageous pioneer of rainbow-colored hair and exaggerated sartorial statements.
Since she first started promoting Prism a few months ago, Katy's typically been rotating three thematic looks: 1.) Tiger Style—which reflects "Roar," her first single off the new album and has been worn for several live performances of the song 2.) '90s Schoolgirl Steez—which is trending HARD right now and is usually rocked during non-performance appearances and 3.) "Perfectly Prismatic," the most literal interpretation of her album title—iridescent, mirrored, a Lisa Frank visual spectacular. So which look will she choose to sport on tour?
In the past week, Jennifer Lawrence has made seven photo call and red carpet appearances all across Europe for Catching Fire, and tonight, she brought the film and her red carpet wardrobe across the pond for the Los Angeles premiere. Each appearance on her Hunger Games press tour has provided an opportunity for her to show off just how versatile that new 'do is, wear Dior, and experiment with different lipstick shades. Unsurprisingly, she's looked ah-may-zing (and totally different!) at each stop: let's review 'em!

As we expected (and hoped), Jennifer went for Dior Haute Couture for the L.A. premiere of Catching Fire. Technically, this piece is a "gown," but broken down, it's more like a strapless bodysuit with a massive, totally see-through overlay. All that sheer realness calls for an edgier coiffure, so J.Law wore her hair in a more piecey style than usual.

At the premiere in Paris, Jennifer opted for a black Fall 2013 Dior Couture gown, complete with a peekaboo sheer panel across the front and a pleated skirt. She paired the dress with a dark plum lip and Justin Bieber's hair from 2011.

Happy Hunger Games, everyone! The second installment of the Jennifer Lawrence/Josh Hutcherson/Liam Hemsworth-helmed dystopian trilogy has FINALLY hit U.S. soil. Well, Hunger Games fans, your patience is being rewarded, like, eleven-fold tonight because you can keep up on all the Catching Fire action in a variety of ways! MTV News is on the ground at the film's L.A. premiere, chatting with all the stars as they head in to watch the final product (some of them are even seeing it for the very first time!), and you can submit your burning questions about what it was really like wearing those wetsuits the whole time (and anything else you might want to ask) by using the hashtag #askcatchingfire. And as always, on the fashion side of things, you have us!
Demi Lovato in her video for 'Neon Lights.'

When Demi Lovato debuted the cover art for her new single, "Neon Lights," last week, we were all like, “OOOH” and “AHHH” and “where can we score some glow-in-the-dark nail polish?” Lovato stripped down and submerged herself in water for the beautifully illuminated first shot, and now we’re learning that there’s a lot more where that came from, thanks to a few sneak peek screen grabs from the song’s soon-to-be-released music video.
In honor of passing the 20-million follower mark on Twitter (*throws confetti*), Demi shared several pics from the rain-drenched shoot and OMG HER HAIR GLOWS, TOO. (Wait, is that why she dyed it neon blue or was the black light-friendly tint just a happy bonus? Hmm.) But that's not all that glows! Demi gets decked out in all KINDS of neon makeup: nail polish, lipstick, super thick cat-eye liner. SO FUN. We can haz, plz?
One Direction on the cover of 'Seventeen' Magazine.

When we heard One Direction would be on the cover of Seventeen Magazine's December/January issue, we were, obviously, excited for new photos to adorn our bedroom walls with/glue onto a body pillow to sleep next to. But then, we saw the cover and were like: hold up, Harry's hair hasn't had that beautiful swoosh in, like, almost a year. Liam and Zayn haven't been this clean shaven for months! Do these five guys have Benjamin Button syndrome or what? Then, after racking through our encyclopedic knowledge of all 1D photo shoots in the history of the world, we realized we'd seen this photo before!
