Hungry 4 Hamburgers.

Happy Friday before Labor Day! The long weekend is practically here, we can taste it. You know what else we'll be tasting a lot of this weekend? Hamburgers. Cheeseburgers. Anything that has been cooked via the fire of a grill, basically. You can't properly honor the food you'll be feasting on if you don't parade around with that food on everything you own: you are what you eat, you eat what you wear. A motto to live by. Pick up these pieces for all the BBQs you'll be attending this weekend so you don't have to answer "hamburger or hot dog?" ever again.

HAPPY HUNGER GAMES!!!! Holy Eff(ie), we've been waiting for what feels like an eternity for the release of The Hunger Games movie. And now *hyperventilating* it is HERE. Well, almost here, as the official release isn't until this Friday, but we can attest—without saying too much—that this film is beyond the beeeeyyond. You guys, it's EPIC, and if there's any way to get in the full on Katniss Everdeen fighting spirit, we suggest you deck yo'selves out for the release in your respective districts. There's no reason why you shouldn't show your support for the tributes who are risking their lives or tip your ensemble out all citizen of Panem style. (We may loathe their naïveté but their craymazing fash magic is fun to mimic.) Thus, ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that we share with you some HG accessories to help you battle it out. May the odds (and ends, bits, and baubles) be ever in your favor.


As you know, Katniss Everdeen is who we're all rooting for in the dystopian Hunger Games universe. We follow her journey from hunting enthusiast and District 12 teen to bow and arrow-wielding fighting machine (which demanded rigorous training for star Jennifer Lawrence). We think this Digby & Iona Bluejay Arrow Necklace exemplifies the spirit of Katniss while also tipping its hat to the Mockingjay birds referenced in both the book series and in the film. In keeping with the arrow theme, we'd also wear this Huyana Arrow Cuff, House of Harlow 1960 Antiqued Arrow Ring, and Pamela Love Five Spike Earrings on opening day and every day thereafter. If your love of the Games runs as deep as a district coal mine, though (#sadface), we also suggest you run around town with this District 12 Tribute Tote Bag to show your support of both Katniss and Peeta. But wait! There's more...

Twilight Breaking Dawn

We've been FUH-REAKING out over The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 wedding fashion ever since the first sneak peek was released at the MTV Movie Awards earlier this summer, and our excitement hasn't died down since! When we caught a glimpse of Bella, er, Kristen Stewart's wedding clip for the first time—WHEW BOY! Talk about absolutely ornate GORGEOUSNESS. We love her soft braided chignon pulled back into a loose bun accented by a silver rhinestone clip with blue flower detail. We loved it so much, in fact, we found out where to buy a replica of Bella's hair comb for only $28. *high five* But that wasn't the ONLY shimmering piece of jewelry we had our eye on during the trailer—we also wanna cop that RANGGGG.

Demi Lovato

OMG. Halloween is coming up quick, guys! We can't stop spotting celebs doing spooky things to celebrate (see: Katy Perry chillin' in skeleton makeup all NBD), and last night was no different. We peeped Demi Lovato hanging out with all of her SUPER ADORABLE (and super fashion-y!) gal pals at Universal Studios Hollywood's Halloween Horror Nights, and we immediately fell in love with her furry black and white panda hat with pom-poms. Not only could this be a quick and easy Hallow's Eve costume (think of all those uh-mazing LBDs in your closet you've been waiting to bring out again), but it actually can last you more than one day! That thing looks WARM, and in the middle of winter when you're all sadface and shivering while you're waiting for the bus, you'll catch your reflection in a storefront window and smile to yourself knowing that you 1.) look like a panda and 2.) it's freaking adorable. So, where can you snatch up this faux fur hat right this second? WE'VE GOT THE ANSWER.

Lil Wayne Performance Outfits

Hip hop goddesses like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Keri Hilson will always have a place in our hearts, but we've hankered after 2011 Video Music Awards performer and nominee Lil' Wayne's swag formula ever since Tha Carter II (we weren’t allowed to listen to any of his previous albums—THANKS, MOM!). Yes, we realize that the rapper is better known for his lyrical flow and his signature throaty voice, and yes, we MAY have acquired a reputation at a certain karaoke bar after busting out "6 Foot 7 Foot" one murky Friday night. But all of that music stuff is just a bonus when we’re faced with Lil' Wayne's fresh onstage (what will he wear at the VMAs?!) and offstage style. There's just one problem.

Wowowowowowowowoowowwowow I love Jem SO HARD. I love being, all, "Showtime Synergy!" and acting like I'm harnessing the projection power of my earrings to create an all-girl holographic pop/rock band. It's so awesome. Oooooooor trulytrulytruly outrageous, AMIRITE???? Only thing is, other than remembering that Jem had ridic long legs and the best outfits and flyest makeup (even though it was for her Second Life avatar of a frontwoman more than in IRL) I kiiiiiinda don't remember anything about the show at all which is why it's so helpful that they're on the air again with a repeat of the FIRST EPISODE tonight on Hub. Like, par example of crap I forgot: um, did you know her father dies and leaves her a record company AND a foster home that she has to financially support? Weird. Thanks, dad.

Shimmery Tights.

Are we the only ones getting bored with our solid black tights? Yeah, we didn't think so! Get out of a hosiery rut by slipping into an eye-catching sparkly pair, instead. And, don't worry, glittery leg warmers are just as versatile as your usual opaque versions. The trick is to keep the rest of your outfit unfussy so that your legs don't have to compete for attention with, say, a lacy, crystal-embellished frock with puff sleeves and a bow around the waist. In no particular order, here are our favorite ways to wear shimmery tights...

+ Under a sweater dress! HUE Glitter Tights ($20,
+ Peeking through ripped jeans! Lurex Striped Tights ($14,
+ With short shorts and tall boots! Anna Sui All Lurex Tights ($26,
+ With a little black dress! Silver Sparkle Tights ($10,

+ How do you wear glittery hosiery?

It's Halloween week! And here at MTV Style, we're psyched about it! That's why we're focusing on the hottest diva costumes of the year. Yesterday, we showed you how to dress like Nicki Minaj. Today, let's take a look at another one of our faves: Ke$ha. Cheers to glitter, trash bags, and face paint! Here are five ways to dress like Ke$ha:


Ke$ha at NBC's 'Today' on Aug. 13.

This is Ke$ha's signature look: denim cutoff shorts, a vintage T-shirt that she cut up herself, black combat boots, and various forms of studs all over her clothes. So, pull out your summer clothes and go for it! Take a T-shirt (any tee will work) and start slashing it all over (note the scissors above). Then, pull out some denim shorts (or pants, and cut 'em off), and pull on some combat boots. You're set to go! For added Ke$ha flavor, sew on some gold studs to your shorts and top.
+ T-Shirt: Metallica Harvester Black T-shirt ($16.95)
+ Shorts: Tribal Embroidered Denim Shorts ($18.90)
+ Studs: 1/2" Gold Pyramid Studs ($6.00 for 100)
+ Boots: Steve Madden Abee Lace-Up Boot ($249.95)

There's nothing that Ke$ha loves more than glitter. She lathers the shiny stuff all over her body for all of her performances, and many of her red carpet appearances. She wears glitter so much that if you do nothing else but put glitter on your face for Halloween, we're fully convinced that you can call yourself Ke$ha without question. If you want to take her look one step further, get yourself a spirit hood (or a hat that looks like the head of an animal) and make your Ke$ha costume undoubtedly official.
+ Glitter: Hot Topic Sequin Body Glitter in Silver and Gold ($3.99 each)
+ Animal Hoods: Leopard SpiritHood ($129.00) / Cheap Alternative: Leopard Animal Hat ($31.99)

Ke$ha surprised many by wearing a tiger mask when she visited a salon in New York City over the summer. If you wanted an easy superstar costume of your own that's under $10, this is it.
+ Mask: Deluxe Tiger Mask ($8.99)

The trash bag-inspired outfit Ke$ha wore to the 2010 Video Music Awards this year could be totally do-it-yourself. Grab some black trash bags (the hefty ones, so they're not see-through!) and cut leg, arm, and head holes into one. Drape it around your body and cinch it tight with tape or a belt. Then, all you need are the accessories: a feather boa, cross earrings, and a turquoise ring.
+ Bags: Ultra Tuf Black Trash Bags ($4.99)
+ Boa: Deluxe Large Black Feather Boa ($2.41)
+ Earrings: Lucky Brand Hammered Hoop Cross Earrings ($35.00)
+ Ring: Bita Pourtavoosi Big Turquoise Chunk Ring ($50.00)

Ke$ha's must-haves are glitter and .... FACE PAINT!!! So, don't forget it, even if you are wearing glitter. Grab some costume makeup so you can pull primary colors (rather than drugstore makeup) and paint animal-inspired looks on your face — slashes, stripes around the eyes, stars. Go all out.
+ Makeup: Mattese Elite Stage Makeup Wheel ($14.99)

Would you dress up as Ke$ha for Halloween?

Katy Perry
Nicki Minaj

Jared Leto performing on October 15, and white zipper pants from Yoox and Hot Topic. Black zippers from Etsy.

Dying to get into Jared Leto's pants? We are, too! Literally. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman performed at the mtvU Campus Invasion Music Festival last week in Florida wearing a head-to-toe white outfit that included a button down, ripped graphic tee, and super-tight white jeans embellished with funky black zippers. The distressed style of these punk pants looked perfect on Jared, don't you think? Here are three ways to get his hot pants style:

1. Try these Lip Service White Bondage Skinny Jeans from Hot Topic ($59,, which feature the same slim fit and black zipper detail as Jared's.
2. LJD Marithe + Francois Girbaud ($180, offers another fun option for white pants, and they are a slouchier fit for guys who need a little more breathing room, if you know what we mean.
3. Or, get creative and snap up a few black zippers on the cheap ($8, and sew them onto white jeans for a truly unique finish.

+ Do you like guys in white pants like Jared Leto?

Jared Leto's got some funky fashion sense, and we don't just mean his amazing Mohawk. Earlier this week, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman wore some zebra-print shield shades to a press conference for the MTV World Stages in Mexico City. Now this is a fun way to wear animal print! Want to snag a similar pair? Try these Jungle Print Shield Sunglasses from Hot Topic for $9.99. If you like the shape but want to ditch the animal print for basic lenses, go for a pair by Guess ($54.94). It fits both guys and girls, and comes in various colors, like silver, gold, gunmetal or brown.

+ Price: $9.99 and $54.94.

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