Statues? Lifetime achievement awards? Knighthood? Child's play. This week, the legacy of famous icons are commemorated in style.

Elvis Impersonator
A South Korean advertising agency launched a clever campaign for Sony in which music icons like Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, and MOZART are reimagined as earbuds.

Sweater Gang
We're not totally sure where these came from or why they exist, but here are some illustrations of famous sweaters. We're talking Bill Cosby, The Dude, Mr. Rogers. The trillest.

Polos of the Future
To celebrate Lacoste's 80th anniversary, the pioneering polo brand created a video in which stylish contempos traipse city streets in self-tailoring, color-changing, and sleeve-growing polos.

Viva Forever
If jukebox musicals are a pop culture rite of passage, then the Spice Girls have been inducted! Check out the fabulous fashion from their press night for Viva Forever!

Family of Force
The Air Force One is no longer a solitary style icon. Nike announced this week that it will use the revolutionary design principles of the classic shoe to create a whole family of innovative sneakers.

Getting excited for the Video Music Awards on September 12? We are! And we have Mr. Justin Bieber to thank for the little style butterflies happening in the belly of our blog right now. That's because MTV just released NEW behind-the-scenes photos of The Biebs shooting his promo commercial for the VMAs (watch the whole spot here). At the shoot, he told MTV News that his look is inspired by the Beatles, but in terms of music legends, we think he channels more of an Elvis Presley "Hound Dog" look (see below). Though, we're spotting MORE than just the Beatles or Elvis resemblance here. Rather, we think he has the same style as Janelle Monae, with that white tuxedo jacket with a black lapel and black dress slacks. Both pull off the look quite well, don't you think? But who looks better — Justin or Janelle? You tell us.

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