Attention, up-and-coming female musicians: There's a new standard for "making it," and it ain't playing a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden. (Although, that's probably not a bad indication, either.) Just like Angel Haze before her and Iggy Azalea predating that (AND the incomparable Grace Jones ahead of them all), Rita Ora made a surprise appearance at Philipp Plein's runway show yesterday, providing the live soundtrack for his "American Dream"-themed Fall 2014 collection.

Ora emerged on the stage from a custom-made, black matte El Camino, wearing a black, ruffled, high-low skirt (#RitasLeftLeg), a sweater with a gold braided band, and a gold studded ten-gallon hat and matching studded cowboy boots. And while her entire outfit was no doubt provided by the designer himself, Ora got SERIOUSLY hooked up with those boots—which, at the time of her show-opening performance, hadn't even gone down the runway yet. (But when they did, NAOMI CAMPBELL was rocking them in silver.)

Here are some things one might associate with the wild, wild American west: cowboys, lassos, saloons, Will Smith, 10-gallon hats, studded leather saddles, motorcycle jackets lined with mink, crocodile bombers, Angel Haze, etc. etc. Oh, oops! I wrote that wrong. What I meant to say was, "Here are some things designer Philipp Plein associates with the wild, wild west." According to his recent runway show, that is.

With a neon-lit, multi-level saloon serving as the backdrop, Plein presented his "Noir Cowboy"-themed menswear collection in Milan on Sunday—complete with a cap gun fight, a mechanical bull, and real bucking broncos. But despite the live-action gunplay between shirtless male models (#yeehaw), the most surprising aspect of the show was an unannounced guest performance by rapper Angel Haze.

Iggy Azalea

Fashion Week has turned into Fashion Three Weeks for Iggy Azalea. After sitting front row at a number of New York Fashion Week shows and performing at DKNY's 25th Anniversary Party, Iggy has surfaced in Milan and, oh, on Philipp Plein's runway. Plein's website describes Iggy as the ideal woman, "poised between haute couture tailoring and a mood that is unashamedly hip hop," so it only makes sense that she kicked-off the show with a live performance of "Work," wearing a short, structured, and slit-bearing dress. Iggy ditched her recently debuted pin-up style bangs for a sleek and tight bun and kept her makeup au naturel.

Ed Westwick Men's Fashion Week

Listen, we always take fashion week VERY seriously over here at MTV Style, and when it comes to men's clothing, it's no different. But when we spotted Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick walking during Philipp Plein's spring/summer 2013 show in Milan over the weekend, we couldn't help but let out a girly giggle. The typically smooth and stylish Mr. Westwick was sporting a teeny tiny John Waters-esque moustache, and, hehehehe, it was kind of hard to take him seriously with that facial hair. Like, we KNOW he can kill it as a model (see: Ed's K-Swiss ad campaign), but what's up with this creepy facial fuzz on the runway? *side eye* It's certainly killing his model-y steez, and we no likey.

So Swizz Beatz dropped the music video to 'Everyday (Coolin')', and while everybody knows that dude is a sartorial BEAST what with collaborations with none other than Christian Louboutin, we here at MTV Style think Eve is dipped in AMAZINGNESS courtesy of her stylist, Liz McClean. The fashions this woman rocks in the video are not so much "in-your-face" as they are "grab-you-by-the-face-and-shake-you-until-you-can't-see-straight". And she's the first lady of rap, after all, so like, respect.

Swizz has the right idea, pointing his thumb back at Eve with that face and total body-language that reads, "Don't ask me. Just peep this ish," but let's not discount his mega-studded jacket, leather cap, and the opaquest of black shades. And Eve, well, there's so much going on right here that we'll have to break it down in the next SEVERAL steps.


Please appreciate the perfectly matte complexion, the immaculate cat eyes, and impeccable falsie application to where I'm totally fooled and mad at the world for not blessing me with luxuriously thick dark lashes. HOWEVER, what is THAT I spy off to the right??


BAM! Hoooooly embellishments, that is one intricate ear ornament!! Look at this thing (I mean, how can you NOT?)! There are spikes, there are chains, there are rhinestones, there are parts of my heart that are hardening from jealousy. This Erickson Beamon earring is NUTS.


Afkadjkjkfhajklf, remember yesterday when we were gushing about Nicki Minaj's gold corset on 'Dancing with the Stars'? Well, remember that it was made by The Blonds? Eve's voluptuous spiky metal corset is also crafted by these sartorial magic men. WANTWANTWANT.


Eve wears a studded leather jacket and leather leggings (both Philipp Plein) with a deliciously low side part and dark borderline goth lips. She's a tough woman, she knows her fashion, everyone stand down.


E-V-E pulls out all the stops with this look. On top, a leopard print Philipp Plein jacket, a rubber bandeau by Jac Langheim, and a metal corset by Rodrigo Otazu. Yes, you read that right, a RUBBER BANDEAU and a METAL CORSET. And I bet Eve could wear them on the Fourth of July and not break a sweat.


On the bottom, Eve's leggings are Philpp Plein, and these gorgeous lucite bootie wedges are Topshop Unique. Not only are they pretty and edgy and on-trend, but they're also functional! Anyone hanging around her feet who happens to need to see through them and is also immobile can do just that. How considerate! Swizzy's even got his shine on in slick, black patent leather.


And there was NO WAY I was going leave these little guys out! These little dudes in their varsity jackets, bowties, and stunna shades/hipster glasses are TEEMING with swagswagswagswag (one for each). And they all have teddy bear key chains on their jeans!!! *collective awwwww*

Weird, we almost mistook Mischa Barton for Taylor Momsen for a hot second when we saw this photo. Must've been the blonde hair, dark lips, and that undefinable carefree look. But it's not Tay-Tay, as we can tell from the missing garter belt. It's Mischa, who was in Saint-Tropez, France last night to attend designer Philipp Plein's new boutique opening (she stars in his fall ad campaign, so of course she was there!). Barton wore a busy technicolor dress by the designer, and a neon green bag in the shape of a heart with the outline of a black British flag on it. She also accessorized with a black bow in her hair. We're all about staying positive here. So, out of everything, we'll say this: Nice bag.

+ Do you like her outfit?

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