Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Happy Birthday, America! While you may be getting on in years (you’re a stately 238 this year, congrats), you’ve still retained your sense of independence and fun, which is what we love about you. And while the Senate might frown on the use of wearing reproductions of the American flag on your clothes and accessories, we do not. We believe in life, liberty, and right to wear flag prints. In honor of your special day, we've rounded up a bevy of of babes, each wearing their own interpretation of Americana. Just a note. This roundup is best accompanied by a patriotic soundtrack and any of the following: a hot dog, a hamburger, and/or a sparkler. So, without further ado...

BRITNEY SPEARS

Remember in 2000 when Britney Spears was on the cover of Rolling Stone wearing lace-up red leather pants and a midriff baring flag-printed halter top? Man, they grow up so fast, don't they?

KATY PERRY

Katy Perry might be the most patriotic celeb there is (minus Springsteen because—really—no contest). The "Dark Horse" singer has done just about everything you can do: hang out with VP Joe Biden, offered to pen a theme song for Hillary Clinton, performed at Obama's campaign rally in 2012 in a spandex ballot dress, and performed for our servicemen at the "VH1 Divas Salute the Troops" concert in 2010 in a pair of hot pants, thigh-high white boots, and a flag halter top. Bruce? You might have some competition after all.

Solange just released a TON of sneak-peek pics from her "Girls of Blaze" Disc Collection campaign for Puma, and you better grab your sunglasses because this ish is BRIGHT. Her debut as art director for the sporty kicks brand dropped in November, and while the focus there was prints on prints on prints, these ads are all about color on color on color. And we are INTO IT.

On a recent Instagram spree under her new music label’s account, Saint Heron, Solange Knowles posted some very sunny pictures of her wearing her signature bright colors and showing off her flair for pattern mixing. But after a little sleuthing, it appears that these looks could be from a photoshoot with Cosmopolitan for their March 2014 issue, which would make total sense. Solange has always had a knack for springtime style. In fact, her wardrobe is like a how-to guide for wearing pastels without looking like a bag of Easter M&Ms. Those who suffer from all-black wardrobes and a fear of bold colors (*achem* what has two thumbs?), take note!

Judging by this spread and Miley Cyrus’ recent new look, slip dresses are poised for greatness this spring. Solange embraces the trend with a canary-yellow DKNY dress, only instead of going full-on ‘90s with a shag cardigan, hers is minimally styled with satin peep-toe mules from Sportmax and Jennifer Fisher rings. (Fun fact: J. Fisher is also a favorite of Sol's sister, Beyonce, who wore the brand to the Grammys with her Michael Costello gown.)

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.)

Solange and Pharrell both have inimitable style, and each artist is almost known as much for their fierce fashion sense as they are for their music. (Almost.) So, it's no wonder that eBay tapped the two (along with a slew of other influential creatives) to curate personal collections for the site's new social element, eBay Today.

Today allows users to create profiles and collections (not unlike Pinterest), filled with inspirational/want-worthy items found around eBay. But the best part is, you can ~actually~ buy the things people post—including items directly plucked up by Knowles and Williams. SO. COOL. To help you get started down the rabbit hole of inspirational shopping, we picked out five of the coolest items from both artists' collections. Check them out after the jump, and visit eBay Today to peep the site's newest feature in full.

One of our fave print-pairing ladies, Solange, just released her video for "Lovers In The Parking Lot," which she not only stars in, but co-directed and produced! The video features Solange dancing her way around an empty flea market, brightening her bland and darkened surroundings with her colorful wardrobe. We wanna share the Solange wardrobe wealth with you, so we're breaking down the video look by look. LET'S GO!

Obviously, there are a gazillion photos taken at New York Fashion Week. There are pictures of the runway, front row, backstage, street style, events, and parties, but, hello, candids > posed pics. Not to be too voyeuristic about it, but photos people don't know they're in are just better. Let's play a game of I Spy, Fashion Week edition.

I'll start:

NYFW

The celeb crowd attending New York Fashion Week shows and events keeps growing, and we're keeping tabs on all of them. Solange attended the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target event in a navy and black tuxedo jacket—as a shirt!—and tan, abstract animal-print skirt from the collection. She dressed the Target collabo up a bit with tan and clear Givenchy sandals and a studded Fendi clutch. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, both very blonde, seemed more than ready to welcome fall: both were dressed in head-to-toe black. Mary-Kate accessorized with a small, furry bag and cut-out shoes, while Ashley added a monochrome bag and heels with ankle ties. Zosia Mamet hit up the Honor show in a fuchsia-y Honor, duh, dress. She paired the dress with NEON red-and-white Tabitha Simmons for Honor flats #practical. Peep the rest of the celebs hitting up NYFW shows after the jump!

Solange

Solange kills SXSW festival style dead.

OKAY: The views expressed in this blog post are not necessarily those reflected by Viacom and its affiliates or more than two members of MTV Style, but ERMEHGEERD The Best Dressed Person at SXSW according to me and my eyeballs has to be Solange. Festivals in March in Texas can be a horrorshow in terms of weather. Not only do you have to account Mercury-bustin', hot-ass afternoons but you have to sling a light layer and tote a more serious jacket because the temperature can vacillate something like thirty degrees on the same day. I went to college in Texas so I know this. Solange grew up in the Lone Star so she knows this. The difference between me and Solange is that I opted purely for function when I rammed a rando array of cotton shapes into my suitcase (I relied heavily on accessories which works but is admittedly a tad amateur) and she packed a keenly-edited melange of printed suits and vibrantly hued, shrunken, basics that looked exquisite and popped against the dusty landscape of shorts and tees. More importantly though, she looked elegant, effortless, and COMFORTABLE while she danced and sang her face off during the handful of appearances she had slated for the week.

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