Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Here at MTV Style we get really excited when the worlds of music and fashion meet, so Coachella is like a homecoming of sorts, where everyone tries a little harder and flaunts their style, whether they’re turning up their usual look or testing out some riskier #FASHUN. With a star-studded lineup and killer surprise guest list, it’s safe to say that this year Coachella had some of its most eye-catching moments yet—and this was only Weekend One.

KATY PERRY

Katy Perry didn’t perform but she was (easily) spotted around the festival all weekend long—who could miss her with that new slime-green hair? Obv, Katy didn’t wear a flower crown; she already had a lot going on in the hair department. Katy showed that her green 'do is actually more versatile than you’d think, pairing it with a very ladylike black-and-white ensemble and a turquoise pencil skirt and matching crop top.

Usher, Kid Cudi, ScHoolboy Q

If 2013 SXSW is any indication, the bucket hat will be even bigger this spring and summer.

It's difficult to pinpoint when and who exactly started the late '80s/'90s bucket hat trend. Was it LL Cool J circa "Going Back to Cali" or Nickelodeon's Salute Your Shorts? Thanks (or no thanks) to sparse documentation of that initial rise of the fisherman's chapeau, the world may never know. One thing is for sure, though: the hat with the 360 brim is experiencing a major present-day comeback, and nothing has made that more abundantly clear than the stages of this year's SXSW music festival. Bucket hats of all shapes and sizes made their way onto last week's Austin stages by way of Usher, Kid Cudi, ScHoolboy Q (of COURSE), Joey Bada$$, IamSu, ScHoolboy Q again, Smoke DZA, and Prince SAMO.

Kid Cudi Wrist Tattoos

Listen, I get that Kid Cudi is a rapper who's always pushing the envelope—even the tagline of his personal Tumblr is modified lyrics from Mobb Deep's 1999 song "It's Mine:" "Y'all need to give it up, we don't give a f***, what y'all n***** want, CUD LIFE IS MINE!!!" But yesterday he debuted a new set of tattoos on his wrists that really makes me feel bananas in my soul areas. He got two drippy, bleeding slits with the caption "The old Scott is dead...slit wrists" underneath it. Now, I'm not here to judge/be a mom/tell people how to live their lives, but I can't tell if this is blithe or insensitive or refreshingly outspoken or what, but MAN, long story short, I feel weird. Also, maybe not great? I understand the visual interpretation of re-invention or officially resurrecting from his given name (Scott Mescudi) into Kid Cudi, but either way he's sending out some seriously intense vibes that even his fans can't keep quiet about.

Kid Cudi Surface to Air

We probably don't need to tell you this, but New York Fashion Week is FINALLY here! Yes, despite the muggy temperatures and never-ending rain, the festivities kicked off Wednesday night with a densely packed party to celebrate the opening of the new stateside store for über-hip Parisian label Surface to Air. If you're not already familiar with this street-style brand, popular with bands like Chromeo and French rabble-rousers, Justice, we encourage you to familiarize yourselves because with this new U.S. presence, we anticipate we'll be seeing the relaxed yet edgy wares EVERYWHERE (like on our backs and feet if we can help it). In honor of the opening, Surface to Air partnered with rapper and How to Make It in America actor Kid Cudi on both a limited-edition leather jacket and a new short music film called "Mr. Rager," which will also be shown at the store on Fashion's Night Out. Folks, from what we spied at the party, this is one heck of a gasp-worthy, street magic SENSATION. Also? We're never ever going to mess with Mr. Cudi while he's sleeping.

Kanye West released a new track over the weekend named "Christian Dior Denim Flow" featuring Kid Cudi, Pusha T, John Legend, Lloyd Banks, and Ryan Leslie. Kanye West loves fashion, this we know, and he has name-checked high-fashion labels in his songs before. But what's most interesting about this track is how he names all of the models he wants to date in one verse! We counted 20 models in the song total, ranging from supermodels like Kate Moss to Victoria's Secret angels like Alessandra Ambrosio. And what did the models think? THEY LOVED IT! Check out how four models — Coco Rocha, Selita Ebanks, Jessica Stam, and Veronica Webb — reacted to their Kanye West shout-outs below! And the modelizer lyrics, of course.

KANYE WEST
I'm in my Christian Dior with a Veronica Webb
Noemie Lenoir, Chanel, Sessilee Lopez
Arlenis Sosa, Selita Ebanks
If you work with my people, speak that Jourdan Dunn language
Make a phone call, out to Joan Smalls
I wonder how it feel to lower Stone's walls
Jessica Gomes, y'all, I would damage her
And see if Jessica Stam got the stamina
I'm in the car with Leo and the Benz swerve
I heard Bar was friends with Esti Ginzburg
Coco Rocha, Kate Mimosa
Alessandra Ambrosio, Anja Rubik
Get Olga Kurylenko, tell her I'm very single
Abbey Lee, too — I'm a freak, boo
I'm wylin', I’m on a thousand
I wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen.

I got the world in my hands, the master plan
But I don't know why I keep calling
Why I keep all of these girls at my shows
They loving me but I don’t know why
I keep calling, why I keep calling you

Christian Dior denim flow
I told her I'm tryna eat out so what we going for dinner for

When we stopped by the Casio G-Shock The World party earlier this week, not only did we get sprayed with glitter from Ke$ha, but we also met up with Bryan Greenberg, star of HBO's How To Make It In America (Kid Cudi is also in that show!). Check out what he has to say about style, because YES, he has an opinion. Everyone does!

Describe your style.
I’m a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy. Nothing fussy. The most important thing to me is comfort. I need something I can wear in-between work, hanging-out, and riding around New York City on my bike.

Who is your style inspiration?
I’d have to say my character on How To Make It In America. I’ve been ripping him off ever since I’ve been playing him. Before that I was kind of a slob.

What’s the most daring fashion item you own?
I’m not that daring in fashion, I like easy. I don’t want to look like I’m trying too hard. I don’t like to draw attention to myself.

What are your favorite places to shop?
I mostly shop at Urban Outfitters and they always have cool s***, even though everyone hates on them. And Steven Alan if I’m getting dressed up.

+ For this event, he wore a blue button-down, dark-wash jeans, and Nike Air Force One sneakers in white and burgundy. He's right — his look is casual! But in a college boy/older brother/grown-man-skater-boy-Rob-Dyrdek kind of way. You like it?

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