Yesterday, Miley Cyrus posted photos of herself in a bright orange swimsuit next to her sister who was, for some unknown reason, wearing a leopard print onesie, ears, and a painted-on nose and whiskers. While her sister's outfit warrants its own discussion, we're here to talk about Miley's swimsuit—it's from the brand new Ashish x Topshop collection. Miley isn't the only female pop star to be as into this collection as we are—Rita Ora, Lily Allen, and Katy Perry have also shown off their pieces. The collection is all over Instagram and I'd like to get in on it, OK?
Miley, actually, is the only celeb to show off a piece from the collection that we plebes can buy online. I thank you for that, Miley.

Rita Ora, on the other hand, showed off the light-up sneakers that have been making the rounds on Instagram. The shoes sold out within the hour, so there go my dreams of getting my feet in a pair of these.

In case you hadn't noticed, Katy Perry is very into lights these days. This new KP era is all about light—from performance outfits to her world tour name, Katy loves lights and the materials that reflect them. It should come as no surprise, then, that Katy is already wearing the light-up shoes from the latest Ashish x Topshop collaboration (which isn't even out yet *hair flip*).
The bad news for Katy is: She's going to have to add another suitcase to her Prismatic World Tour travel gear. The good news is: That's because all the pieces in this new collection—especially the light-up ones—are dope.

By now it’s starting to become easier to count the designers Miley Cyrus isn’t wearing on her Bangerz Tour than the ones she is. We’ve seen her in designs by The Blonds, Jeremy Scott, Marc Jacobs, and Roberto Cavalli, and it’s only been a month since the tour kicked off. To put her ever-expanding wardrobe into perspective, that’s nearly as many designers as Beyonce’s worn for her Mrs. Carter Show—and THAT'S on its 11th month of touring.

Y'all ain't ready for this. I'm reporting live from L.A. for Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged—which you should already know premieres at 9 p.m. EST/PST on MTV this Wednesday night (January 29)—and I can confirm that this thing is going to be WILD (as if you had any doubts). Miley's throwing back to her Nashville roots for the stripped-down performance, but she's remixing it with her own very special brand of TURNT. There's a giant wagon wheel laced with LED lights, bales of hay are strewn about the audience, Miles is dripping in head-to-toe sequined denim, and MADONNA IS HERE IN FULL RHINESTONE COWBOY REGALIA.
Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus love Ashish combination pants.

Combination pants: they're like the garment version of Batman villain Two-Face (née Harvey Dent), but you know, not evil. Courtesy of MTV Style fave Ashish, they're the perfect outfit solve for, "Which of these looks better with this top?" because well, you just wear them both. AND it looks like they're new wardrobe staples for Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus.

Make way for the latest sartorial news from the poster child of IDGAF, Miley Cyrus! Billy Ray's babygirl turned up (literally, and you know, figuratively) on the red carpet of last night's new MySpace launch event in L.A. in a head-turning, eyebrow-raising ensemble, but as her confident stance and smug mug suggest, she's throwing up deuces to haters. If you squint at Miley's outfit-of-choice, it's not reeeeeally anything we haven't seen before—toeing the line between hard-edged and sexy by pairing badass materials with cuts the highlight the *achem* female form.
She reprises her favorite T by Alexander Wang leather bra top, wearing it under a patent leather bomber jacket by KTZ. Her pants are baggy but she wears them with immaculate white boss lady Christian Louboutin pointed-toe pumps—an overall silhouette similar to the outfit she wore to Pharrell's birthday party. Pretty standard stuff for Miley. Except for those pants. Those deserve a closer look.

It's no secret that we love the sisters Haim around here. We've just about worn away the play button on all of our various devices hitting repeat on their 2012 single "Don't Save Me," and we MAY have even sung it in karaoke more than once. Maybe. Beyond just crafting one undeniable hit after another and putting on one of the best live shows we've seen in AWHILE, the sisters also have great style, both as a group and individually. We've chatted with them (and their music video stylists) about it in the past, and we're overjoyed to see it captured so well on the June cover of ASOS magazine. The girls are each wearing looks that reflect their style, with Alana, a.k.a. BabyHaim, wearing an ASOS crop top emblazoned with the year '1990,' middle sister—and resident tomboy—Danielle in an Ashish sequined numbers oversized shirt dress, and eldest sis Este in an ASOS crop top and Antipodium metallic skirt. The shoot is sunny and fun and the photos look as though they could almost be candids from the sisters' own lives in their native LA.

Chemistry is a real thing, and it can make ALL the difference in a photo spread. The Haim sisters are obviously super comfortable with one another, not just from playing in a band together but from, you know, growing up in the same house for their entire lives, and the ease and humor with which they interact is undeniable. On the cover, Este gleefully makes a mustache with Danielle's long brown hair, and the interior shots are no less playful. The girls manage to make a chain link fence look as exciting as a rollercoaster ride in shiny jeans and a T-shirt for Danielle, a psychedelic, Tumblr-meets-canyon-lady maxi dress for Este, and, of course, Alana's signature jean shorts and a graphic long-sleeved shirt. Are you taking notes? We certainly have been. The mag is available now on the ASOS Fashion Up app, available from the app store.
What do you think of Haim's ASOS mag cover?

Chloe Moretz covers the May 2013 issue of NYLON.

Ever since the very beginning in the '90s with cover girls like Liv Tyler and Gwen Stefani, NYLON's always been one to show total and complete support for the latest crop of rising stars. But we've got to admit, for this year's annual Young Hollywood Issue, the magazine outdid even itself by choosing none other than Miss Chloe Grace Moretz (!!) to represent the new guard of up-and-comers. We first suspected something was up several weeks ago when the actress tweeted this photo of her rad pop art manicure, and now we can see the spread in all its fun high fashion glory. Fresh off her recent Teen Vogue stint, where she showed her tough-girl side in tulle coupled with studs and leather, Chloe's getting playful and punky here with mixed prints, tons of slogan tees, and a complete '90s style resurgence. Who knows? Maybe Liv Tyler's 1999 cover really HAS come full circle in 2013. See even more of the photoshoot below!
What is it about London Fashion Week that brings out the kookiest accessory designs? New York Fashion Week has its fair share of loony togs, sure, but only a few particularly avant garde designers subscribe to that. LFW takes the cake as far as the accessory game goes with a veritable metric ton of labels taking part — Louise Gray, Kokon To Zai (KTZ), House of Holland, Moschino Cheap and Chic, and Tom Ford to name a FEW. From sunglasses shaped like bikes to unicorn crossbody bags (plus, a toilet paper roll ring or two), there are SO many quirky accessories from the London Fall 2013 Fashion Week runways, and we've rounded them up for you to decipher which ones are good, which ones are bad, and which ones are, erm, questionable.

So what if the sun is shining for less hours in the day during fall and winter? The number one accessories trend from London Fashion Week this season was hands down statement sunglasses. Whether they're outright bananas like this bicycle pair by Fad or reimagined takes on the classic cat-eye (seen in red at KTZ, opal at Erdem, and metallic pink at House of Holland), this is definitely a trend that falls under the "GOOD" category for us. We only wish the neon yellow block-lettered "VOGUE" from Ziad Ghanem were an actual pair of shades.
T-shirts on the runway at Acne, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Ashish.

Say what?! Oh, that's just some of our favorite designers channeling their inner wordsmiths on the runway this season. Acne, Phillip Lim, and Ashish clearly had a LOT on their minds for Spring/Summer 2013, with models parading graphic tees down the catwalk...literally giving us a mouthful. We hear that the Acne collection was inspired by Emmylou Harris' cover of "Wrecking Ball," so it makes sense that the clothes repped their country heritage with modified gallon hats and serious denim. Designer Jonny Johansson also paid tribute to the musical backbone with t-shirts stamped with, yes, "MUSIC." There's no denying this message. 3.1 Phillip Lim hit the grunge scene hard in the label's NYC show, showing layers on layers on layers of sheers, sparkles, and prints. But what we loved most about the downtown edge of the collection HAD to be the designer's "I <3 Nueva York" tees (complete with an upside-down heart). The tourist shop staple has never looked so cool.
