In case y'all have been missing out on one of THE biggest events on the internetz right now, the O Music Awards have been live-streaming more than 50 bands, a drumathon, and even CATS right here in NYC since 7 P.M. last night. This bad boy is going on for a full 24 hours, so there's still time to catch some more fun stuff before time runs out, but whew! We MUST talk about all the fashion-y goodness that has happened thus far. Everyone from the Jonas Brothers to Hanson to Kate Nash have graced the OMA stage, and we need to discuss their ensembles ASAP.
1.) THE JONAS BROTHERS' MESH CARDIGAN, CANADIAN TUXEDO AND SUPERMAN SHIRT MEGA COMBO

The Jonas Brothers ALWAYS sartorially slay it when it comes to their performance outfits—but we have to give them extra props each bringing their own unique spin to last night's ensembles. Nick went completely neutral in a seemingly-normal, monochrome slate gray outfit, but upon closer inspection, we see that the front panel of his cardigan is actually made of mesh. Whoaaa. Joe killed it with a chic spin on the Canadian tuxedo by wearing super dark denim on the bottom half with a medium wash chambray shirt on the top. (Also, we're still not used to that shaved head, bye.) Kevin sported our favorite look of the day, though, which was a graphic blue and white Superman print shirt paired with dark skinnies. #WERK
The shooting of Trayvon Martin has swept the country in the past few weeks, stirring a nationwide debate on the importance of an article of clothing, namely the hooded sweatshirt. Long a staple of leisurewear, workout wear, everyday wear, snuggle wear, cold weather wear, and just about every other kind of "wear" you can think of that involves covering your person, there has never been a reason to think twice about the meaning of a hoodie until the shooting of 17-year-old Martin (on his way home from a 7-Eleven with a bottle of tea and packet of Skittles in hand) by a neighborhood watchman who claims it was self-defense. Thousands have taken to the streets wearing hoodies to protest both the shooting and lack of arrest made on George Zimmerman, the man who shot Martin. Celebs have also been showing their support by tweeting and Instagramming photos of themselves wearing hoodies.
Diddy tweeted support for the Million Hoodies March by wearing a black hoodie and carrying a picture of Trayvon Martin as a young boy. Swizz Beatz Instagram'd a double image of himself in a hoodie, saying, "Had to Hoodie up for Trayvon, what a sad situation. Blessing to his fam." Odd Future's Frank Ocean Tumblr'd a photo of himself in a hoodie, and Ludacris Instagram'd an "I am Trayvon Martin" message with a photo of himself wearing a printed hoodie while standing in front of a plane. The outpouring of support for Martin and his family sheds light on the fact that a young person was killed, seemingly, as a result of what he looked like.

Not gonna lie, we're WILD about anything and everything created by Danielle and Jodie Snyder, aka the designers behind mega awesome jewelry line Dannijo. The entire MTV Style staff frequents the website on a regular basis, sharing our collective sighs over collar necklaces like deprived prairie banshees in desperate need of soul-quenching precious metals. Well, thanks to the duo's latest lookbook, we have even more reason to wail, as one Questlove brings his joyful countenance to the campaign as an honest-to-goodness striking jewelry model.
