The wide and wonderful world of sports is one into which we seldom venture in these here digital pages of MTV Style (save, perhaps, our 24-hour David Beckham watch). Between Lady Gaga's black liquid perfume announcement and finding out where to score Katy Perry's movie poster outfit, we're rarely left with much time to cover the ins and outs of athletic fashion. HOWEVER, we write to you eyeballs deep in the exciting Oklahoma City Thunder v. Miami Heat 2012 NBA Finals, and the faux glasses fashion battle that is concurrently happening up and down these post-game interviews is more than enough to change our tune.

On the off-chance that you haven't been keeping up with the NBA Playoffs, let us fill you in. Last night, we just completed Game 3 of the NBA Finals, and the Heat are now leading the Thunder 2-1, which sounds as much like a meteorological report as it does a sports recap. On top of boasting the winningest records in the league, these two teams are also home to some of the NBA's most sartorially savvy players - Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade. The four powerhouses have caught a lot of flack this season for wearing bold, lensless glasses during their post-game interviews, embodying a look that's been likened to Steve Urkel and Carlton Banks, and Westbrook was recently quoted claiming that he originated the "nerd glasses" trend, a statement both James and Wade vocally refute. In light of all the bespectacled buzz, we decided to take a closer look!

Rumors flew in anticipation of today's Versace men's show that hotties Chace Crawford and Darren Criss would be WALKING and maybe, just maybe, modeling UNDERWEAR!!! Ajakfhdlkagjfhdjffffffff *over-heating and minor stress-induced stroke* Alas, our girlish dreams were squashed when we learned the boys would just be sitting by the runway, observing from the front row. But hope was not lost because the ever-generous eye candy gods bestowed upon us even more boys to ogle alongside Chace and Darren: Ryan Kwanten, Zachary Quinto, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony.

Attractive men who care enough about fashion to travel across the pond for it?! *mega swoon* Our weak little hearts almost couldn't contain all of the joy mounting within them. How prettily they sat all in a row. Smiling, laughing in each other's company. Wearing suits of the finest weaves and cuts, and their every hair expertly groomed. It's the kind of stuff every girl dreams of (and a lot of publicists, too). Blue, black, grey, and white seemed to be the unwritten color palette code for the man-crew, though Darren may have broken it a little wearing those neon pink socks. *sigh* When we were finally able to tear our eyes away from the celeb smorgasbord, Donatella's collection was breathtaking: a smattering of throwback prints, tropical hues, easy tailoring and buttery leather details. But wait. Pump the brakes here for a sec... We looked at the front row. Then back at the runway. Then back at the front row. Did we really believe these guys would ACTUALLY wear this stuff?

La La Vazquez, wife of basketball star Carmelo Anthony, former MTV VJ, and star of VH1's La La's Full Court Wedding, hit the red carpet at Diesel's Only The Brave party in New York last night in a vibrant multicolor dress. With its blue, purple, orange, and yellow watercolor hues, this mini is one of the brightest outfits we've seen in a while (especially now that it's fall!), which is why it became an instant MTV Style favorite. Who created this look? La La Vazquez tweeted that the dress was vintage Christian LaCroix. Pretty! So, would you wear a bright multicolor dress like La La?

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