Super Bowl Halftime

Thanks for the mammaries.

In a nation—nay, a world—of Super Bowl watchers, humanity finds itself divided. There are those who tune in for a rousing game of The Football, and there are those who watch for the Halftime Show. Technically, you've also the crowd who only cares about commercials and a bunch who "tune in" so they can eat wings and a variety of dips. The people who eagerly watch for all of it are most certainly higher beings; close to perfection. Namaste to you.

This is dedicated to the Halftime Show contingent, a wayward gang of miscreants and rascals who defy all rules. We are the cool kids because we enjoy rock and/or roll. You football-y types can continue placing bets and doing pre-game stretches, we'll be over here REMEMBERING THE GREATEST (or at least most memorable) HALFTIME FASHUNS! To the garments.

Happy Holidays from Swagger New York.

Didn't get to Olan Mills to take a traditional Christmas card photo this year? Don't worry! Swagger New York has got you covered. (And be honest: Did you really want to color-coordinate your outfit with your entire family anyway? I didn't think so.) Instead of sending out another perfectly posed pic, give your friends a holiday card they'll remember featuring a few of the year's pop culture moments we'll never forget.

When a guy can carve a niche for himself as a paragon of style, it's a truly impressive feat. I mean, HULLO, dudes do not have the same range of options as ladies do. It's a lot harder to keep your look fresh and fashion-forward without peplum skirts and crop tops and a variety of heels. But there is an elite tier of dudes who have done exactly that in 2013.

We pay attention to the stories you're reading, tweeting, and posting on Facebook. Based on all that, we've put together a list of your 10 favorite stylish studs from the past 365 days. Now we need your help to crown the winner. One Direction won as a group last year, but only Harry and Zayn are nominated this time around. Will one of them come out on top, or will they split the 1D vote, leaving room for a new champion? It's up to you, so be sure to vote for your fave dude below. And act quickly because the poll closes after Wednesday, December 18th!

Harry Styles is a fashion icon. But you don’t have to take our word for it—all of Europe says so. (Pretty much.) The youngest member of One Direction beat out ~actual~ models for the title of British Style Icon at this year’s British Fashion Awards AND took home the award for Best Look at the MTV EMA. The dude wears quirky, printed button-ups and black skinny jeans like nobody’s business, and somehow manages to make bed head appropriate for every situation.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel shrug off the jean suit comparisons at the "Runner Runner" premiere.

Gather round, Fashion Fanfic readers. It's time for another installment of made-up celebrity conversations. Last night, Justin Timberlake and his lovely wife, Jessica Biel, showed up to the premiere of Justin’s new movie, Runner Runner, wearing basically the same thing. The handsome couple both hit the red carpet in verrry similar tuxedo suits. Here, we imagine what getting ready in the Timberlake-Biel household might have been like that night.

Justin anxiously tapped his pointed patent dress shoe on the bespoke, marble-glazed floor and let out a hefty sight. "JESS! Girl, come ON. We only got four minutes to save the wor— before we have to leave for my premieeeereyyeah!" he yelled with a slight staccato. For a moment, he thought about texting his co-star, Ben Affleck, to tell him they were running late, but he quickly remembered that Jennifer never lets him take his cellphone to events in an effort to help him "be more present."

"COMING!" Jessica hollered back. "Have you seen my black, gold-trimmed mini-briefcase purse? I can't find it anywhere!"

Justin Timberlake in T Magazine.

HELLO, NEW DESKTOP BACKGROUND. In a recent spread from T Magazine, Justin Timberlake pierces our hearts with his eyes and makes us want to live in black and white FOREVER. He also appears quite pensive in kind of a worrisome way, in which case, we are totally here for you, JT. Seriously, cry us a river. (Heh.) We are available at a moment’s notice if you need a shoulder to weep on when Jessica isn’t around, or whatever.

Wow. Just. Wow. There you have it, folks. The rumors were true. We were just graced with an *NSYNC reunion at the 2013 VMAs in celebration of Justin Timberlake's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Is everyone still breathing? (Because I barely am...) In honor of the boy man band's ceremonious return to the MTV stage with a few bars of "Gone," "Girlfriend," AND "Bye Bye Bye" (with the VERY same TV choreography from their 2000 performance, BTW), we're taking a look back at how far they've come. Sartorially speaking.

Hello, late '90s. For *NSYNC's first appearance at the Video Music Awards, the group went all out with LUSH luxury fabrics. A strong fur vest for JC Chasez (plus some bicep and knee bands), head-to-toe black leather on JT (pre-dating another Justin who frequents this look), Lance Bass in wool jewel tones (and teeny bookish spectacles), Chris Kirkpatrick in a glittering sage jacket, and Joey Fatone in a full-length evergreen pony hair jacket off-set by his FLAME red hair. Classic.

Don't be so quick to *hold a beat* walk away. We have some BIG Video Music Awards news that's gonna rock your body, world, late-August schedule, EVERYTHING. Justin Timberlake (as in THE Justin Timberlake) is performing at the 2013 VMAs in Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Sunday, August 25! Not only will JT be hitting the VMA stage for the first time in 6 years, but MTV is also doling out highest honors to Timberlake, presenting him with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. From his formative days in *NSYNC to this year's hotly anticipated (TWO PART) 20/20 Experience, from Justified to "SexyBack," Justin Timberlake's footprint on pop culture, especially in the music video space, is gigantic. SO, is there any better excuse than this to take a look back at Justin's contributions to music video fashion? (Answer: Nope.) Here are our top 10 favorite Justin Timberlake music video wardrobes of ALL-TIME. In GIFs!

Back in 1997, a little 5-man singing group called *NSYNC dropped their eponymously titled debut album. On that record was a track (#8, if we're getting really specific) called "I Want You Back." (P.S. If you don't get goosebumps during the boys' first staggered chord, you should probably close out of this browser tab now because this is not the post for you.) It was the group's first official single, and our music video introduction to Justin Timberlake. And what an intro it was. Single Sinbad earring, ripstop nylon jackets (like all the boys at school used to wear), an evident appreciation for over-sized sporty separates, and yea, the baby blues didn't hurt either.

After *NSYNC, JT embarked on what has become a colossally successful crossover solo career. One of our favorite songs and music videos from his premier reinvention stage is now and will forever be "Cry Me A River," a Timbaland-produced kiss-off track inspired by the end of his relationship with Britney Spears. It was moody, somber, but still a little bit vengeful, and accordingly, Justin was clad in all black and soaking wet from rain. The static shots with his hood up are THE BEST.

Justin Timberlake, Pharrell

Watch out One Direction. There just might be another band of boys after your Kings of Coordination™ crown (OK, in our dreams)! Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake, and Charlie Wilson all sported black bow ties on stage for their joint performance (in honor of Wilson). They may not have gone for the patented 1D same-color steez, but the dedication to tailoring by these dudes is impressive (one of these guys does have a song called "Suit & Tie" after all).

Justin Timberlake

It'll come as no surprise that the love for Justin Timberlake is very much alive and kickin' in the MTV Style office. So when we jump online first thing in the morning and are blessed with a new performance of "Mirrors," this time on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, you shouldn't be shocked when I tell you the video circulated around our office quicker than a JT hip thrust. Sure, it might be a little surprising that our responses ranged from, "STOP EVERYTHING" to "I love today" to my own, "I'm drooling on my desk." But can you really blame me? The dude of my middle school daydreams is back in full performance force and here I am, quivering in my chair, not unlike my eleven year old self at my first *NSYNC concert. (Dad, how will I ever repay you for that night? The eve that still stands as the greatest date of my life? Bless you.)

Frank Ocean, Miguel, Justin Timberlake Time 100

This year's Time 100 list of the most influential people of the year felt a little bit like it was made with input from our very own brains. Some of our favorite musicians, politicians, and thinkers were honored, and they turned out in their very best at Time's celebration last night. In particular, some VERY well-dressed gentlemen stood out. Frank Ocean left his usual sneakers at home in exchange for a totally traditional tuxedo and *gasp* dress shoes. Can you believe it? We're into it. Meanwhile, Miguel went in the opposite direction, bringing a splash of bright blue to the otherwise pretty classic red carpet in black pants and a graphic, mirror print button-down. He accessorized the springtime look with black chelsea boots and assorted rings. Back on his suit and tie...well, you know, Justin Timberlake took Frank's lead in a classic tux with a crosshatch patterned jacket that we would be willing to bet is by his friend Tom Ford. Justin looked positively rakish with his hair parted to the side and falling in front of his face just a little bit. Handsome gentlemen, all. *Sigh*

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