Beyonce on the cover of 'Out.'

Ring the alarm. Beyonce is not only topless on her first magazine cover of 2014, Out, she’s also platinum with a bob à la Marilyn Monroe. We’ve seen a lot of different Beyonces over the years—case in point: We saw 17 of them just over the course of her visual album—but this is an entirely new look for Queen B.

Inside the magazine, we get a look at Beyonce’s revealing cover outfit: just two body chains and two tiny necklaces. But then again, those necklaces likely cost more than our clothes budget for the year, so you do you, Bey. Since she was in the midst of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour during the shoot, she was probably pressed for time and needed quick outfits to wear. (I mean, she didn’t even have enough time to sit down with the writer for a face-to-face interview—they emailed.) To be fair, though, Bey does make a great case for an all-white suit when she pops up in a beaded eyelet tuxedo in another shot.
Slime green for spring, duh.

Let it be known that the first week of April 2014 was the week everyone dyed their hair, or at least pretended to (we're looking at you, Lauren Conrad). Katy Perry debuted her "slime green for spring" 'do on Instagram, after mentioning last week that she was excited about the color. While the color, at least on Instagram, doesn't appear to be as bright as the green slime that gets dumped on celebrities' heads at Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards, that's probably a hard color to achieve on hair. Also, who knows, maybe she used Walden as a filter (it's not very vibrant).

In case you missed the news: The Goonies is coming back. Director Richard Donner seemingly confirmed the news over the weekend to TMZ and is even in ongoing discussions with the original cast to return. Inspired by this news, Chunk's love of Hawaiian shirts, and one of spring's biggest trends, we sought out the season's finest florals. They're everywhere—from shoes to hats and everything in between. We collected a few of our faves and rounded them up for your consideration/enjoyment/shopping needs, etc. Check 'em out below, and if you introduce the flowery print to your wardrobe, be sure to do the Truffle Shuffle whenever you can.

This maxi dress from Nasty Gal features a subtle floral print. The colors are muted, but the oversized flowers speak for themselves—spring is here.

This American Eagle skirt combines the colors and print size of a typical Hawaiian shirt, but features it on a skirt and against a black background, making it automatically more wearable. The best part? It's on sale for under $25!
Are Kanye's new shoes dropping in June?

If you were awake for, like, half of last year, you’ll know that Kanye West has a lot of grievances with the fashion industry. Ye’s been airing out his issues for quite some time on the Yeezus tour, radio interviews, television, Twitter—you name it, he's covered it. Well, those fashion monologues eventually led to Kanye breaking off his relationship with Nike, who was at the center of much of his wrath after they kept pushing back the release date of the hotly anticipated Red Octobers (which surprise-dropped in February), and Adidas swooped in, offering Kanye a reported $10-million contract and the chance to design his own line for the sports brand.
Today in Germany, where Adidas is based, Kanye hosted a pep rally of sorts for the company, performing, monologuing, and revealing that—get excited—there’s a new Yeezy coming in June (whether that means we'll be able to get our hands on them then or if that's the timing of our first look is still unclear). Rather than the fired-up tone of his so-called "rants," Ye leaned more toward motivational speaker for this appearance. In his presentation, he shared on everything from sketching shoes in the fourth grade to how ranting is his oxygen and how he just wants to make “usable art.” Here are the best Yeezy-isms from his Adidas presentation.
Your official MTV.com 2014 Movie Awards red carpet host!

Major news, y'all: Rachel Antonoff is hosting the 2014 MTV Movie Awards "Red Carpet Report" for MTV.com! I know! We're excited, too. After doing a stellar job alongside Grimes at the 2013 VMAs, Rachel is back and will bring us all things fashion and style from the carpet in Los Angeles. How can you watch her in action? Good question. While Zendaya, Tyler Posey, and MTV's Josh Horowitz and Christina Garibaldi will be co-hosting the live pre-show on MTV, Rachel will be serving her best Christiane Amanpour via Ryan Seacrest and we'll be posting those interview segments right here on MTV.com throughout the night.
We at MTV Style go way back with Rachel—besides being huge fans of her clothing line, she starred in an episode of House of Style with BFF Mae Whitman. Rachel shares our giddiness, telling us, "I'm thrilled to be asked back and excited to really get to the bottom of who is dressing left and who is dressing right!" Well, Rachel, we're lucky to have you (again!).
Keeping such close tabs on Kristen Stewart's Balenciaga and Chanel campaigns, we almost forgot about her time-consuming day job (being an A-list actress, in case you forgot). She recently reminded us of her demanding film career in a big, bold way: dying her hair completely orange for an upcoming role. The actress flaunted her new locks in an Instagram photo taken by New Orleans-based hair salon Maison de Cheveux. The pic shows K-Stew and her stylist with the caption, “Kristen Stewart gettin her hair ready for a new role!#americamultra#awesomecolor#houseofhair.”
Does Miley Cyrus get more hours per day than everyone else? How else could she manage to be on her Bangerz Tour, act as the face of Marc Jacobs, and cover magazines practically every month? Her latest cover is a big one—Elle's Women in Music issue. Unlike her most recent cover—for W, where she was wearing a whole lotta nothing—for Elle, Miley has on a sequined jumpsuit from Marc Jacobs' Fall 2014 collection.
What Miley gained in clothing she lost in accessories—while her W cover featured baubles on baubles and bling on bling, here she only has on two bracelets and one ring. Her makeup is similarly just as low-key, with her strong brows (welcome back, bbs!) standing in stark contrast to her platinum pixie.
Pharrell's custom crystal shoes.

If you're anything like me, your Saturday-night footwear is limited to, like, boots or slippers. Pharrell, it is clear, is not anything like me. I mean, he performed on Saturday Night Live last night in these bad boys. What are they, you ask? Oh, just a pair of customized Swarovski crystal Stan Smith sneakers, NBD. Looks like partnering with Adidas has its perks, eh?

Flanked by a group of string musicians, Skateboard P performed "Marilyn Monroe" wearing the shoes, a black three-stripe jacket, and his green Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat. Will the shoes become a full-time piece of P's look, like the jacket and the hat? Will he be able to get anything he wants customized with crystals from now on? These shoes raise a lot of questions.
Lauren Conrad's (fake) purple hair.
• We thought Lauren Conrad dyed her hair purple (it looked so good!), but it turns out it was an April Fools' Day joke. We're still pulling for her to do it, TBH.
• Beyonce finally released her "Flawless" flannel and we know how we're going to wear ours each season. A wardrobe staple means you wear it every single day, right?
• We dropped our second installment of Fashion Math featuring Lady Gaga. I'm not great at math, but I totally get that Eggbert the Beanie Baby + Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka = Lady Gaga's outfit.
• Rita Ora went topless on the cover of Elle UK and wore Google Glass for a behind-the-scenes video, so I think we know what the future is going to be like: less clothing, more accessories.
• We wondered who wore leopard-print hair better: Nick Cannon or Dennis Rodman? Do you think Mariah liked Nick's hair like that?
Like us on Facebook so we can be friends and follow us on Twitter @MTVstyle to talk.
With all of her time spent on and around runways, Rita Ora is pretty much a pro at walking with ~style~. It makes sense, then, that walking is the focus of Rita's new Funny or Die video, co-starring Korean pop star HyunA. We had no idea that Rita was skilled in so many walks, let alone that so many walks exist in this world. In the video, dubbed “Girl, You Better Walk,” Rita pulls out a whopping 10 different walks. SPOILER ALERT: Sadly, none of them were taught to her by RuPaul, the godfather of the catwalk, whose song “Super Model (You Better Work)” is name-checked in the clip’s title. Oh, what a video that would've been.
