Alexander Wang H&M

Alexander Wang and H&M have been teasin' the heck out of us lately, and we like it. Well, kind of. It all started three months ago when A. Wang announced via Instagram that he would be collaborating with H&M on a clothing and accessories collection come fall (November 6, to be exact!). While simultaneous screams were heard 'round the world, things have been pretty hush-hush since the initial announcement. Until, well, right now.

Harmony Korine, the auteur behind Spring Breakers and Kids, directed Dior's latest fragrance ad. The commercial features a model wandering around a decked-out mansion before stumbling across a secret garden where a heavily remixed version of Die Antwoord's "Enter the Ninja" drops in. The last time Korine was tapped to direct a fashion film was 2011, for Proenza Schouler. It was widely panned.

Korine's films tackle issues like poverty, mental illness, and dysfunctional families. He isn't a traditional filmmaker: His work is non-linear, experimental, and surrealist with elements of Vaudevillian minstrelsy, dark humor, and absurdism. In other words, he's never been one for mainstreamers, so it's interesting to see him so restrained. In honor of Harmony Korine, here's a roundup of other outlandish fashion films. This one's for the weirdos. Mazel.

JULIETTE LEWIS & DAFT PUNK X GAP

Let's start off simple. In 2001, when the only songs by French robotic duo Daft Punk on your radar was the house favorite "One More Time" or the meme bait "Harder Better Faster Stronger", they were tapped by Gap along with Juliette Lewis to shill jeans. Oh 2001, what a year to be alive.

We'll be the first to admit that trying to make plans for New Year's Eve stresses us out: the 12-month anticipation, the unavoidable crowds, the ever-important, gotta-be-stunning outfit of the YEAR. OK, so maybe we're being a ~little~ dramatic, but with less than a week to prep your look after a month of holiday hustle and bustle, sometimes you just gotta reach into your closet and hope for the best. Of course, you also want to LOOK your best, so why not start with one of your tried-and-true basics? Instead of going full-on Toddlers & Tiaras, take what you know and give it a new life by adding a few easy-to-find pieces from your local mall. (And TBH, this is how WE plan to roll, so don't knock it till you try it.)

+ Dress: Must-Have Bodycon Dress ($6)

+ Necklace: Silk Road Falling Coin Necklace ($58)
+ Bag: Iconic Quilted Minaudière ($20)

The Little Black Dress: Chances are, you don't just have one, you have like, 100. It's the one wardrobe staple that every woman has been conditioned to own since the 1920s, when Coco Chanel made it "a sort of uniform for all women of taste." Give your little black dress a big night out on New Year's Eve with a Stevie Nicks-approved fringed kimono, velvet strappy pumps, a heavy metal statement necklace and a cross-body clutch for hands-free dancing.

Word to the wise: anyone who tells you that they already know exactly what they're packing for Thanksgiving break is a flat-out liar. Or, like, a really good planner and someone we could all stand to learn something from. Either way, packing for a four-day weekend can be harder than packing for a two-week trip—because if you're going away for a legit long-vacay, you at least have an excuse to stow away half of everything you own.

For a shorter stay-over (and one that revolves around eating, at that), it's way better to condense your clothes into a bag or two and be comfy—which translates into cutting back on shoes and purses. *GASP* I know, I know. The HORROR. Let's be honest though: you're praahbably not going to clomp around the kitchen in those strappy suede stilettos you just bought. And do you really need to bring a giant tote when you'll be parked on the couch in a food coma for most of the weekend anyway? That's what I thought. ~Tough Love~

So, in an effort to help guide you through your inevitable procrastination, we went ahead and put together an entire Thanksgiving wardrobe that's all ready to be crammed into a carry-on.

THE OUTFIT YOU WEAR FOR A CASUAL HANG

Maybe you're meeting up with friends for lunch. Maybe you're headed to that one place in town where you ALWAYS run into EVERYBODY. Or maybe you just need an excuse to venture outside and change out of your PJs. No matter what you're doing during the day, being at home shouldn't be an excuse to look as lazy as you feel. Besides, no one has to know that you're actually wearing jeggings.

Lady Gaga

In between preparing for hosting and performing on SNL, possibly landing a Versace campaign, and debuting a flying dress, last night, Lady Gaga found time to open the new H&M in Times Square. The store, which is open just in time to start selling the new Isabel Marant collaboration, is also one of the 175 across the country which will be selling a limited edition pink foil version of ARTPOP.

After her frightening Glamour Magazine's Women Of The Year Awards outfit and the 10 different looks she wore at her artRAVE, Gaga toned it down for H&M, opting for a brightly colored, paint splattered, jumpsuit. And because she still is Lady Gaga, even without a hairy mask, she wore her fave 9-inch black patent-leather stiletto boots. Those boots go with everything in Gagaloo's world.

In the immortal words of Adam Sandler circa 1995, "Sooo hot! Want to touch the hiney! Awoooo!" You guys, David Beckham, 38, is shirtless again. No, not on the soccer field–he's definitely still in retirement. Besides, ain't nobody got time to watch an entire game when you're really only there for the celebratory money shot in the event of a win. This season, Sexy Becksy is kickin' it with H&M for his eponymous Fall 2013 Bodywear Collection. And if you remember the line's February debut (and smokin' hot, larger-than-life window adverts), this means that the dude isn't just shirtless–he's modeling manties, too.

Isabel Marant, Margareta van den Bosch

Just when you've FINALLY convinced yourself that the next collaboration couldn't possibly get more exciting than the last, H&M reveals that the international retail giant is teaming up with Isabel Marant. The French designer is probably best known for her boon of a footwear innovation, the sneaker wedge, but that's only the tip of the iceberg in her fashion arsenal. Marant has a knack for infusing feminine bohemian elements with gritty urban edge and a keen eye for tailoring—the makings of every style savvy tomboy's dream closet.

We've seen Beyonce on the sand, Beyonce in bikinis, Beyonce scarf dancing in front of a wind machine and a behind-the-scenes look at putting Beyonce's whole Mrs. Carter H&M campaign together. For most people, that'd be more than enough summer-ready Bey to stay occupied for months. Alas, we are not most people, and actively went searching for more images from the campaign. Welp, looks like our persistence was rewarded as we stumbled upon SEVERAL snaps of "Beyonce as Mrs. Carter" that we'd never seen before on HM.com!

H&M has it right. When it comes to Beyonce, you can never get enough. That's why, on TOP of putting King Bey front and center as the face of their 2013 summer collection, they're not holding back on all their exclusive Mrs. Carter images and footage. Less than a week after releasing their official Bey-fronted campaign video, the Swedish multinational retailer has just dropped an extensive behind-the-scenes look at the campaign shoot!

• Ever since Karlie Kloss chopped her locks, we've been itching for the scissors. Now that J-Law's officially on board, debuting her new 'do at the GLAAD Media Awards, we're officially ready to pull the trigger. Buh-bye long layers!

• Sure, we've all done the awkward embracing required of official prom poses, but why not practice your prom photobomb skills? Fellow dancers (and paparazzo parents) won't know what hit 'em.

• We're still mesmerized after watching Beyonce debut a new song AND sport H&M's summer swimwear line in the brand's new promo. Is there anything Queen Bey can't do in a 90 second video clip? We think not.

• Not to brag or anything, but we snagged an interview with Cat Power (Chan Marshall) in which she dished about her style and rock stars and it is pure amazingness!

• As if Snooki doesn't already put together amazing ensembles, she took it to another level channeling the much missed childhood favorite, Bratz Dolls.

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