While you were sleeping this weekend, Zebra Katz, whom you might know from the earworm "Ima Read," released a new music video for "Tear the House Up" (featuring Hervé). The Brandon LaGanke and John Calucci (of Ghost+Cow) video features some of our favorite menswear designers—Walter van Beirendonck, KTZ, Mark McNairy—in bright and bold, fully immersive environments. Dedicated followers of fashion will remember that Katz's nod to Paris Is Burning ("Ima Read") also provided the soundtrack to Rick Owens' Fall/Winter 2012 Paris show. Hip-hop fans will appreciate his minimal, straightforward approach to electro-house. The rest of you with eyes will enjoy his fearless outfits—styled by Solange Franklin. And without further ado, let's get into it.

The video opens up with several consecutive shots that zoom in on Zebra on a white throne in the midst of what can only be a McDonald's PlayPlace on acid. Minus the face paint originally found on the runway, Katz is clothed head to toe in a look from Walter Van Beirendonck Winter 2014/2015 "Crossed Crocodiles Growl" collection. He has, however, accessorized with painted-on gold eyebrows.

Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea

Let's all say it together: FINALLY! Ariana Grande has been teasing us with sneak peeks of her "Problem" music video for an eternity now, and today is the day that our dreams became a reality at last. The hyped vid launched at 4pm today (true to Ariana's Twitter countdown), and it's everything we hoped it would be.

But enough waiting. Let's dive right in and dissect this bad boy...

The video opens on a sparkling figure. We can't see her face yet—who could this mystery woman be??

Surprise! It's Ariana. She's looking expectedly retro in a sequined minidress and white go-go boots. Also, notice that signature spiral backdrop that's been in ALL of her Instagrams lately.

If you think M.I.A. couldn't possibly get any more outrageous, you clearly haven't seen her new "Double Bubble Trouble" music video yet. The psychedelic, politically-charged vid imagines a disturbing future where teens make guns on 3D MakerBot printers and dance under LED drones (and, worst of all, take selfies ALL day long). M.I.A. directed the video herself, and you can definitely feel the homemade realness amidst the trippy strobe light effects.

There are tons of blink-and-you'll-miss-it moments in the three minute and 26 second production (oh hai, 1984 references), so we went ahead and captured the coolest style tidbits that deserve some serious appreciation.

M.I.A. wears an alphabet-print Moschino (circa 1990s) jacket + pants for about half of the video. Pairing the outfit with bright orange socks is a particularly nice touch.

Yasssss. Just in time for the weekend is a brand new video from NY-based rapper Le1f. The video features Le1f as the only man around (and alive?) dancing atop of ruins, and crossing swampland in a way that is supes elegant in a deserted and abandoned forest setting before making his way to a mysterious light on the other side of the woods. Excited about this video and all of the looks styled by Andreas Aresti yet? Then let's get started!

Who's that mysterious hooded figure in the olive green jacket? And what's up with that light?

Ladies, if you're looking for a female-only army to join, I know the group for you. Little Mix is looking for recruits and you don't have to wear camouflage. YAY. The video for "Salute" just came out and I would not want to fight these four in battle. I mean, their combat uniform is leather and various chains. That's tough.

Their look comes courtesy of British fashion designer Nikita Karizma. The goal, according to Nikita, was to give them "empowering leather-look black outfits" and "raise the fashion stakes for the title track of their second album." Peep their looks below!

Jesy is in a leather bodysuit and thigh-high boots. Considering how well she dances in this outfit, I am confident she'd be able to go to battle in it.

Sky Ferreira

We already knew before we hit play that Sky Ferreira’s new video for “I Blame Myself” would be all about the clothes. For her new My Night, My Time single, Sky teamed up with online retailer Ssense and System magazine on what could be the future of pop music: the shoppable music video. Ssense and System have made a few changes to the format since they released the first shoppable music video with Iggy Azalea. In the new format, you shop after you watch—rather than as it plays—which doesn’t take us out of the video’s world, which is, in this case, an abandoned lot. Of course, the clothes, front and center, do not disappoint.

In the opening scene, the camera tricks us for a moment into thinking we’re staring at the back of a dude before it does a 180º and we see that it’s actually Sky. She’s styled in a Givenchy star patch leather bomber jacket, a Christopher Kane hoodie, Saint Laurent crystal-embellished tights, a Saint Laurent biker skirt, and an amazing pair of black-and-white basketwoven Acne kicks with beaded flower Simone Rocha socks.

Last week, when Le1f performed "Wut" on Late Show With David Letterman and made his TV debut in Hood by Air and actual snow boots, we had no idea that a week later we'd be gifted a video for "Boom." IDK about you, but after watching this video all I wanna do is avoid diners and ride shotgun in a Jeep. It looks like my weekend plans have just been confirmed. We got the deets on the video's fashion, styled by Prince Franco, from the rapper himself, so let's not waste any more time—to the clothes!

The video begins outside the diner, with Le1f in not one, but two jackets. Winter 2014 was the winter of two jackets #polarvortex. The first is a Diesel denim jacket, and the other a Pelle Pelle leather jacket. Underneath the two jackets is a black-and-white Y-3 tank that reads "ANTI."

Missy Elliott

Hear that? It's the sound of you singing "I CAN'T STAND THE RAIN" to yourself over and over for the rest of the day. Why? Because I'm dropping another #TBT on you, and Missy Elliott's "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" is the proud owner of an Ann Peebles-sampled hook that just won't quit. Today is the first day of spring (vernal equinox for all my science folk) which, for those of us on the East Coast, means a lot of rain in our near future. Thus, the song selection. (Well, that, and Broad City briefly spoofed it last night.) Now, without further ado, I'm breaking down the FASHUN from this iconic Missy x Hype Williams joint in this week's #TBT.

You know what your Thursday needs? A sweet, sweet R&B slow jam. Listen, I know Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love to You" is a pretty aggressively ~seductive~ track to wedge into your work/school week, but just be glad I'm dispatching this toward the end of your day and not at 9 a.m. while you're finishing up your bagel and cream cheese. Also, it is EXTREMELY underrated in the universe of music video style. Since you likely don't remember this one off the top of your head, I'm breaking this #TBT down for you look by look.

Hey, remember when the Backstreet Boys were all lined up and glowing in pristine linens in an airplane hangar for their "I Want It That Way" video? Boyz II Men's above look predates that by five years. Fittingly for the early '90s, the dudes are working with bizarro, boxy-tailored pieces, and Wanya Morris in a jacket and trousers with a mismatched vest, and Michael McCary in a sleeveless vest with a Nehru collar. Also, some sort of cane and/or rain stick. IDK what's up with that. I don't remember that being a trend then.

Driver, roll up the partition, please. I can only watch Beyonce's "Partition" music video in private because this ish is WAY TOO STEAMY. *douses face with a cup of cold water, fans self vigorously* Members of the esteemed BeyHive (of which I am most definitely a part) have been watching this vid—along with the other 16 from her visual album—since late last year, but it just dropped in full for the world wide web to view today! Directed by Jake Nava and styled by B. Akerlund (plus Ty Hunter, obvi), the short follows Mrs. Carter through a VIVID mid-breakfast fantasy sequence.

We open on King Bey posted up in very Downton Abbey eating quarters, nomming on breakfast and tea (presumably with her hubby Jay Z). She's clad in a crisp Chanel robe, CC certified earrings, black-rimmed Tom Ford cat-eye reading glasses, and a turquoise silk lingerie set with black lace details from La Perla Neglige. Oh, also BRIGHT red lips and nails.

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