Drake, OVO

Let's appreciate Houston, y'all.

Even though Drake is from Toronto—a fact we couldn't forget if we tried—he's shining the light on H-town this weekend with Houston Appreciation Weekend. And while Beyonce seems like a likelier host candidate for this kind of celebration considering it's (a) her hometown and (b) the inspiration behind her greatest unreleased song (IMHO) "Bow Down/I Been On," Drake has made the social centerpiece of this thing a pool party, which trumps all weirdness/confusion/side-eye I might have been harboring. I mean, who doesn't love a pool party? Anyway, we're guessing Bey would be proud of Drake's initiative. Also, there's merch.

Drake

Who is this guy?

In case you were worried that Drake's comedic chops were a one-time fluke when he hosted Saturday Night Live, I guess you've never seen Degrassi. JK, I guess you haven't yet watched Drake on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, where he took to the streets in a disguise to see what people really think about Drake.

While I'm not fully convinced he needed a disguise—I mean, none of these people recognized his voice, which is pretty distinct—he wore one that consisted of a dark chestnut version of Justin Bieber's original floppy hair and a fluffy beard. For extra diversion he added some glasses and a multi-colored striped shirt, which totally transformed him from Drake to an i-banker with bad eyesight. Or one who pretends as much so he can wear glasses with thick frames.

Who wore Astrid Andersen better?

Adding to the looming questions about their relationship status, Drake and Rihanna appear to have been swapping clothes as they’ve been dining across Europe in between shows for Drizzy’s Nothing Was the Same tour. Two weeks ago, Rihanna left Manchester in a Pigalle hoodie previously worn by Aubrey and now they might be sharing this black fur Astrid Andersen jacket. IDK about you, but it sounds like they're asking for a Who Wore It Better.

Snag some OVO from Nordstrom!

If you aren't already on your way to Toronto to pick up one of Drake's 2014 varsity tour jackets from Roots Canada, then we are seriously starting to doubt your devotion to Drizzy. JK! We weren't able to swing a flight either. But we did catch wind of a pretty great alternative if you're sweatin' some limited-edition October's Very Own gear (you'll still have to go to Canada for that jacket, though). Starting TODAY, February 14th, Nordstrom will officially become the first national retailer to carry apparel by OVO. #HYFR

The exclusively designed merch, including sweatshirts, T-shirts, and knit caps, is debuting as a part of Nordstrom's ongoing Pop-In Shops project. Launched in October 2013, the specialty shops house a series of themed collections that rotate every four to five weeks. This time, the theme is "Heartbreakers Club," which Nordstrom says is "inspired by men with heartbreakingly good style." Check! Drake definitely qualifies. BRB while I put a Band-Aid on my aorta.

In January, Drake hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time. Remember? As the show began, he sauntered onstage with a big grin and proceeded to ace his first monologue. He was wearing charisma, confidence, and a fine lookin' letter jacket. You may have admired this quality jacket. The craftsmanship. The signature OVO crew details. The way it seemed to give him just a little bit more Drake Power.

Well, good news! You too can get your very own extra Drake Power, as long as you've got $458 to drop and maybe a ticket to Toronto. Drake teamed up with Roots Canada to launch his 2014 tour jackets, and they'll be available starting February 15 at a Toronto Roots location. So far this is the only information available—one might wonder if they'll be up for sale elsewhere? But considering his 2011 Roots jacket collaboration was a limited edition and sold out quiiiiiickly, this might be a campout situation.

Dennis Graham. Maybe you've heard of him? No? Well, let me refresh your memory: DAT 'STACHE. Still nothing? OK, well, Dennis Graham is the father of Aubrey Graham, AKA Drizzy Drake, and in Movember November, he was the living, breathing definition of a Cool Dad with a guest role in his son's music video for "Worst Behavior." Now, not only has he been immortalized on the internet, but according to a recent photo Drake posted on Instagram, Dennis Graham has officially been immortalized in ink on his son's inner forearm.

I'm not saying I was nervous for Drake to host SNL. I'm just saying that my insides were convulsing in meaty ways because I just want the whole world to love him the way I do, and OH GOD, what if he totally Phelps'd it? Or what if he was too cool to play along? The best hosts accept and dive into skit concepts that make them look foolish in the best ways possible (see: Hutcherson, Josh.) What if Drake was stiff, or even worse, not funny? FEAR NOT, me. This is a dude who started as an actor, see. And as it turns out, he's still a consummate pro—even in the glare of live television.

How many rappers do you know who will sword fight in a wizard costume, lunge in some shorty shorts, or seamlessly transform into a lame dad? I mean, we're talking about a superstar who FULLY knows that he's a walking meme, but embraces it and continues to propagate it in various ways. I guess he's not too worried about his cool meter—he just wants to have some fun.

ONWARDS, MINIONS! TO THE LOOKS!

The intersection and overlap of music and fashion is nothing new. In fact, it's the very foundation on which MTV Style exists (without it, I'm pretty sure we would implode on ourselves in a flurry of glitter, which would be pretty...but very, very sad *whimpers*). It's been an exciting year for our favorite cultural cross section, with each side informing the other countless times, from designers tapping musicians for campaigns to musicians revealing their own designs. But the phenomenon we enjoyed the MOST this year? The designer track. That is, a track inspired by a specific designer or label, usually featuring the fashion house's name in the hook.

Sure, we've seen these in previous years—Kreayshawn's "Gucci Gucci" and Soulja Boy Tell 'Em's "Louis Vuitton" in 2011, Kanye West's "Christian Dior Denim Flow" in 2010, Jennifer Lopez's "Louboutins" in 2009, and so on—but the sheer volume of songs dedicated to fashion darlings in a year amplified by the earworm "and we'll never be roooooyaaaaals" is SUPER interesting and worth a closer look.

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

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.

Last night in the motherland of Nike, otherwise known as Portland, Oregon, Drake took a concert breather to let the crowd know he drove 28 hours through a snowstorm to stand there before them. He praised the city's roaring populace of bicyclists and single women. And then he announced his induction into the Team Jordan family, claiming it was the best day of his life. Not long after, he posted some teaser pics to his Instagram account.

Last week, Kanye West said "OK BAHYE" to Nike after a five-year partnership and signed a reported $10 million deal with Adidas. Three Stripes publicly confirmed their alliance yesterday.

COINCIDENCE? Prooooooooobably not.

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