Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Welcome to another edition of Food Friday. This week we were inspired by the newest collab between Miss Lily's, a Jamaican restaurant down in the Soho neighborhood of New York, and your '90s boyfriend's favorite surf brand Stüssy. A killer capsule collection to go along with my oxtail stew and rotis? I can't think of anything better. However, it did get us thinking what the results between some of our favorite streetwear lines and foods would be. We hope you like the fruits of our labor.

Lazy Oaf is known for their bright cherry colors, and a penchant for playful prints loaded with pizza, pineapples and an assortment of sweets (including ice-cream) seems like an obvious combo for East Village favorite Big Gay Ice Cream. You know what else is obvious? A Lazy Oaf x Tyler the Creator combo. Did someone say threesome? Throw in a Salty Pimp (I'm serious, that's what it's called), and call it a day. Also highly recommended: the Cococone.

As #Brats around the world know, Cher Lloyd's new album, Sorry I'm Late, dropped today and Cher was here on Live From MTV to talk about it and more. So much more. Decked out in a leather and tulle dress from Brian Lichtenberg and strappy silver shoes from Fendi, Cher discussed her worst hair style ever, how she finally find her style after becoming famous, and what she'll wear in the video for "Really Don't Care" with Demi Lovato.

First Beyonce, now Miley?! We said it once and we'll say it again: faux fashion tops are definitely having a moment. And don't think it's stopping in 2012, either...months after this clever repurposing of fashion brands first crossed our radar, the trend is still going strong. Just take Miley Cyrus, who rang in the holiday season with her family and pets, decked out in a sweatshirt that paid homage to both designer fashion AND furry friends. We all know that the pop star and actress is a total animal lover, so we can't really think of a better model for the Brian Lichtenberg "Feline Meow" sweatshirt, can you? Brilliant!

Miley Cyrus Dr. Martens

It's official—Miley Cyrus has gone grunge! Ever since the pop singer transformed her long locks into a bleach-blonde pixie cut, she has been totally revamping her entire wardrobe. Lately she's ditched her boho-chic ways for an edgier '90s look, and we LIKE it. Over the past couple weeks, we've spotted Miley sporting her head-to-toe grunge-inspired duds, and we couldn't help but notice that she kept re-wearing the SAME pair of shoes—lace-up Dr. Martens boots! She opted for the 10-eyelet patent leather pair with an extra chunky sole from the DM x Agyness Deyn collection ($160). (Come to think of it, she is TOTALLY channeling Aggy these days! We see what you did there, Miley.) The cool part about these kicks is that they are an updated version of the '90s staple and can be paired with literally anything. Over the weekend, Miley went casual-cool in a heather gray Brian Lichtenberg tee, dark skinny jeans, and, of course, her signature Docs. For accessories, she sported oversized gold hoop earrings, layered gold necklaces, stacked bracelets, and minimal makeup. We like how she left her boots untied to add a touch of edginess to her ensemble.

Two blondes, one dress. NO, we don't mean something dirty, so get your heads out of the gutter! We're talking, of course, about Britney Spears and Ashley Tisdale, both spotted in a head-turning hot pink mini from designer Brian Lichtenberg. Spears wore the dress first, to the May 24th X-Factor auditions in Austin, Texas. Paired with black suede glitter-finish Yves St. Laurent pumps and loose, center-parted locks, Spears keeps things simple, making the dress (and those long legs!) the center of attention. While we wouldn't choose such a form-fitting ensemble for work, the body-con frock is an adorable pop of color for the bubbly pop star.

Demi Lovato Britney Spears X Factor

Forget the "Oops!"—Britney Spears straight-up just did it again. *curtsies enthusiastically* After momentarily turning me straight in a seriously skin-tight Alexander Wang (!!!) number last week in Manhattan, the Ms. American Dream Since She Was 17 took the whole Southern Belle lewk to sky-rocketing new levels at the first batch of X-Factor auditions in Austin, Texas. See: big, bananas-y blonde hair, a smokey eye, a million dollar smile, and, oh right, THAT. DRESS. Brit Brit sported another body-con/sizzling get-up—this time courtesy of celeb-fave designer Brian Lichtenberg. Head-to-toe observations: It's hot pink. There's revealing mesh cutout action. The black chunky zipper traveling down the back is SEX. Are those shoulder pads? *dead* P.S.- It's under $400. (But the stunning black YSL stilettos are definitely not. :() And can we all at once say, "Leggy?!" #LEGNEY

On Monday night, I stopped by the Brian Lichtenberg X Greko Sklavounos party at Le Bain, hosted by the stunning Cassie, for the release of their collaborative video installation "Song of the Siren." Brian is an L.A.-based designer who has outfitted EVERYBODY from Shakira to Nicki Minaj, and his extended celeb hit list includes Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, M.I.A., Paris Hilton, Kreayshawn, Kristin Cavallari, Nicole Scherzinger, and Ciara, to name a few. Greko, Brian's collaborator, is a director and photographer also based out of Los Angeles whose work has appeared in Dazed & Confused, WWD, and Vogue Hommes Japan.

Brian was gracious enough to take a few minutes to dish about whether he'd be designing maternity wear for Beyoncé , his love of all things fur, and of course Grace Jones (or in this case, Grace "Bones," but more on that later).

There’s a great deal you could say about Beyoncé's "Run The World (Girls)" video, directed by Francis Lawrence (the auteur behind Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”, among others), regarding the fact that she KEEPS bodying the ENTIRE WORLD with her unbelievable bodaciousness and message of female empowerment and unrivaled joy. I mean, Ms. Bey dances like she’s giving off the type of energy that could achieve spaceflight, and the fact that she does all of this in the most face-meltingly SUBLIME fashion is a rare and sumptuous event.

The postapocalyptic scrubland makes for a perfectly austere backdrop that makes all that floor-length drama, metal, syncopated bassline, ANIMALS, and McQueen POP. The styling genius behind all of the looks that run the gamut from Givenchy to Brian Lichtenberg and Jean Paul Gaultier to Norma Kamali is none other than Ty Hunter, aided by his assistant stylist Raquel Smith. Another awesome thing about Ty? Not only did he give us an EXCLUSIVE interview, he made ABSOLUTELY sure that his assistant was also name-dropped for this piece, which soooorta speaks volumes about how hard he rules. <3

MTV Style: ZOMG. We are so excited about this video. We basically want to dress up in matching outfits with 30 of our closest girlfriends and take to the streets.

Ty Hunter:[Laughs] Right?

YES! We want to know EVERYTHING. Word is, she wears a lot of her own stuff in the video.

Yes! So, that whole section? The amazing red Alexander McQueen dress? I can't even take credit for that. That was out of Beyoncé's closet. That was her personal dress, and in that scene, every single female that has on Alexander McQueen and all that high-end fashion, that whole section with the lion is all of Beyoncé's personal clothes she's worn in the past.

Wow! We see Chanel and Balmain and Lanvin. *Sigh* We’re dying. So it makes sense to hang out with her knowing that one day you might borrow from her fabulous archive [Laughs]?

Yes! [Laughs] All the way down to the shoes, that whole section is filled with all of the things that she's worn and been photographed in. We got together and put all the clothes in garment bags, and she wanted all the girls to have a section of the video where they're all in couture.

Can I just say that crown made my entire staff's heads fall off? It was GORGEOUS. We kept pausing to see how intricate it was.

That's Erickson Beamon. They actually made it expressly for us. The creative director of the video, Jenke-Ahmed Tailly, and I got together trying to figure out this whole queen concept, and we needed a crown. Erickson Beamon make such beautiful pieces, and when they said they'd do it, we knew it would turn out to be amazing.

Did all of you collaborate to make sketches and edit?

Nope, we just knew they would come through. And when that box came and we opened it, it was like, "Oh my god. THIS is perfect."

Let's talk about the other hardware. The Zanotti. Oh, man… the gold Zanotti necklace/sternum armor/cummerbund thing. Gorgeous.

Yes, yes! I actually have a person that works for me, Raquel Smith, who came with that body piece from Giuseppe Zanotti, and that just totally made everything. They've actually custom-made that in different materials like silver and leather. It's been great, and we play on the theme to use it every now and then for performances.

And the interplay between the shine and the fur is awesome as well. That's what I love about this video: You've got some boutique L.A. designers like Brian Lichtenberg, who made that black shrug. He's enormously talented.

I called him on the phone. He is a little bit newer, but we actually used his designs in "Diva." He's great! It was a section where he made these crazy hats and headgear. The lace bodysuit? He actually custom made that, too. But those shoes in that scene?

The black tassel ones?

Yes! I made those.

Nuh uh! I love the range between the custom-made/boutique/newish/personally handmade to the pulls you made from hardcore houses like Givenchy and Jean Paul Gaultier.

It's just that everything fit the vision perfectly.

For a fashion nerd, there are just so many Easter eggs that come at you so fast. The quick contrast between white and black is stunning and, of course, we have all that SHINE from one of our favorite designers, Gareth Pugh. The armor, chainmail, armadillo plated gold ensemble with the matching shoes. Breathtaking! AND it's been a while since we've seen Pugh x Beyoncé.

I had Gareth's number from when we went to a party in London and we pulled from his last collection, which I'll have you know Beyoncé didn’t wear, since Sasha Fierce wears Gareth Pugh, and so I texted him and was like, "This is what I need…" And he had this one-of-a-kind dress and he had those amazing shoes and I was like, "YAY!"

The jewelry that accompanies it is a lovely touch.

That's Laruicci, a young jewelry designer [Lauren Ruicci] who I met last year. She did some different pearl necklaces for the "Why Don't You Love Me" video, and I went to her showroom and saw the gold rings and I was like, "This is perfect for that" and you know everything just kind of worked out.

I feel like the aesthetic is a continuation of some of the hardware that we see in "Single Ladies" and "Diva."

Yeah, it was like the new take on the beautiful Lorraine Schwartz handpiece that everybody loved and couldn't stop talking about but just in rings.

Let's talk about the Puccis! We've been anticipating more Pucci since the infamous Met Gala dress. The yellow dress was incredible, but the fact that Bey can dance her face off like that in the cutout green dress blew us away!

Yeah, Peter [Dundas] at Pucci is so nice! He actually let us use the green dress, and when Bey was getting ready, she put it on—nobody knows this so this is exclusive—he lent us the green dress and it was set to be shot in Vogue. There was like a big deal behind this green dress! Anyway, it was, like, the showstopper! So [Beyoncé] puts it on like she was getting ready to dance, and the sleeve was made out of a delicate sequin fabric. And it already had like a little hole in it, so it ran!


Yes! So we actually took scissors and cut the sleeve off! And we were going to put the sleeve back on, but Jenke took it with him when he returned to New York and I was like, "OK, well, I'm going to have to return the dress, but the sleeve is somewhere else." [Laughs] So they ended up knowing we cut the sleeve off, but it worked out perfectly and the fact that we took a couture piece and put combat boots with it was what really made it.

It's a battle of the one-shoulder black dresses! Last night, Audrina Patridge attended the Give & Get Fete in Hollywood wearing a black one-shoulder dress with metallic copper specks splashed all over it. It was cocktail-y, but not too over-the-top, which was a nice balance, and she pulled it off well. But she's not the only star of The Hills who loves a good one-shoulder black dress. On April 27, Kristin Cavallari visited MTV Canada to tape an interview wearing an asymmetrical black dress with a lace overlay by designer Brian Lichtenberg (available for $355 at

+ So, which one-shoulder black dress do you like better — Audrina's metallic or Kristin's lace?

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