And it’s… interesting! The new video for Miley Cyrus’s hot new single, “We Can’t Stop This,” is getting lots of buzz for being wacky and weird: There are food fights, twerking bears, and sunglasses-rocking taxidermy. But you know, she’s just bein’ Miley.
Months ago, the former teen queen debuted that super-edgy ‘do, followed by a serious style overhaul (in which she’s worn unexpected get-ups like sheer jumpsuits and sweats-jeans hybrids). And now? She doesn’t even look like the same girl who kicked around in cowboy boots to “Party in the U.S.A.”
As if there was still any question, it appears this Disney star is all grown up!

Stuck in a style quandary? A cool graphic top can solve almost any case of “I have nothing to wear.” With a little creativity and some high-low styling, this wardrobe staple goes far beyond the classic jeans-and-sneakers pairing. Try a printed sweatshirt for some sporty flavor, or wear one underneath a pantsuit for a dressed-up take. Want more ideas? See how these celebs are wearing their favorite printed shirts, and get inspired to give a new spin to your favorite tee.
A simplified version of the sexual nature behind clothing and lingerie would not have been enough; a modest interpretation of the designer world of lace and leather would not have sufficed in carrying through the message that this raw and racy lingerie looks to achieve.
Cautioned by the tones of sepia or saturated highlights photographer Bernard Gueit creates an erotic fashion shoot filled with all the dreams and desires of any lustful soul. The Kisskill lingerie collection meets all the intimate requirements of any man or woman in all of it’s style, material and gorgeous accessory additions (note the delicate lace kitten ears or leather harness fixtures).
Hair and make-up (both done by Kate Blainey) is voluptuous and full of life, bouncing curls that cascade down cream coloured skin, dark cats eyes that stare out lustrously at the camera lense. The Kisskill collection covers an entire range of sensual underwear – featuring the dark and feminine lace panties with delicate trim and bow detail, or the more indecorous leopard print. Gueit allows the imagination to run wild as he creates each intimate portrait with a definitive sexuality and erotic drive.

What brought you to New York?
Sarah Jessica Parker.
Yes! I own every season of Sex and the City. That show taught me that if you love what you want to love, all will be well in the end. I actually met SJP during Fashion’s Night Out a few years ago and almost passed out.
So are you a “Carrie”?
I’m very much a Charlotte on the outside but a secret Samantha inside. I’m more organized than Carrie—though I do share her obsession with shoes. I own about 50 pairs and am aiming to have 100 by next year. Thank goodness for the DSW rewards card.
We caught up with the heartthrob about his latest hit, “What About Love”—which you will love.
Just before embarking on an epic summer vacation, which he’ll be spending touring the country with Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, 17-year-old Austin Mahone made a quick stop in New York City to visit us at the Teen Vogue offices. OK, technically, he was in town to promote his new single “What About Love” on The Today Show. But he did make time to dodge through screaming girls in Times Square to pay us a visit!
The thing about Austin is that he’s really, really cool. Ten minutes into hanging out, he was taking off his shoes (super rad Nike kicks) and showing us his socks (made by Trukfit and designed by none other than Lil Wayne). In addition to spilling about all things fashion, the rising star opened up about Taylor Swift, summer concerts, and girls.
Where are you based?
I’m from San Antonio, Texas, but I live in Miami now.
Do you miss Texas?
I miss Whataburger!
What did your classmates think when you first started posting videos of yourself singing on YouTube?
They didn’t really think it was cool. They were like, “Why are you singing? That’s so stupid. You’re never going to get anywhere.” They hated it. Now they’re like, “You should come back and perform at our school. We miss you!”
When did you decide this was something you wanted to do?
When my YouTube videos started to get really big, I was like, “Man, this is pretty sweet.” It started as my hobby, and then I started traveling and learning how to play different instruments, and then it just kind of became my life.
Who are your influences?
Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, of course, Boyz II Men, and Drake.
Do you write your own songs?
Yeah, I do a lot of co-writing with my producer RedOne, and then a lot on my own. I just like to be creative.
How do you keep training at dance and your instruments?
Music is my life. I love doing it, so I just do it nonstop all day. And with dancing, I wanted to put on a show for people. I don’t want to just be sitting there doing nothing so that’s when I started to dance.
Do you like fashion?
I love fashion. I like looking fresh and wearing new stuff.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Around 150, maybe.
Seriously?! What’s your most prized pair?
I just bought these Versace shoes. I bought them for the Billboard Awards. It was a special occasion, so I decided to do it big.
What’s it like to tour with Taylor Swift?
The Red Tour is pretty cool. Taylor is amazing. She’s so talented, and Ed is, as well. They’re awesome, and we all just like to hang out.
Have you learned anything from them?
Taylor told me to always stay humble and be the kid I was when I started.
Was it overwhelming at first to play in front of so many fans?
No, definitely not. For me, it’s more exciting than anything. It’s just crazy, because there are, like, 50,000 people out there.
Do you like to interact with your fans?
Yeah, I love it. With Twitter, it’s important for me to update them on what I’m doing or where I’m going or what I have coming out next. A lot of times I like to go to arcades, like Dave Buster’s, with them and just hang out and play games and have pizza.
What do you like to write your songs about?
Just everyday life and things that have happened to me and things that I want to happen to me.
Of course. What else would I write about?
Why do your fans call themselves Mahomies?
I actually started it. I said it once and it just stuck.
While it might not always get the recognition it deserves, Canada is home to plenty of our favorite thingsafter all, we have our neighbors to the north to thank for Degrassi, Justin Bieber, and gravy on french fries (trust us, so delicious!). No surprise, then, that the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards, held in Toronto, was a star-studded event full of stylish A-listers and prime musical performances.
On the red carpet, Taylor Swift and Lucy Hale wowed in white. Shay Mitchell went super trendy in a graphic crop top and skirt, while Cody Simpson was as dashing as ever in a denim vest. Demi Lovato brought her signature blend of rocker-luxe to the event with a revved-up Little Black Dress (and made shoulder pads totally chic in the process!). And, singers Jedward made a super fun statement with matching white tuxedo jackets, sky-high pompadours…and bejweled sneakers, of course.

Blackstone’s, the East Village hair salon known for its outré décor (coyote and fruit-bat taxidermy) and trend-averse hairdos (no ombré-happy stylists here), will unveil a major expansion on June 18 (19 E. 7th St., nr. Third Ave.; 212-353-2680). After doubling the shop’s size to about 2,000 square feet, owner Joey Silvestera brought in five new stations and a fresh crop of stylists. The annex now boasts a solarium-style glass ceiling and curiosities like antique microscopes (in keeping with the science-lab vibe of Blackstone’s). Starting in late July, a courtyard in back will feature a single outdoor vanity for alfresco appointments. Prices remain the same: from $75 for cuts and from $90 for color.
Nestled in the panoramic farmlands of this age old world, photographer Kasia Ratajczack creates a dramatic and beguiling fashion shoot with the combined elements of human influence and the forces of nature.
The fashion within this shoot is deeply feminine, with emphasis placed on upon the subtle and sensual parts of the body: the nape of a neck, the curve of a breast, the length of the body. The classic colours of black and white feature in full-length dresses, flower ring accessories and sophisticated bohemian designs. Model, Weronika Kryszak, plays the role of an elegant maiden, her darkly accented eyes and blushing cheeks (done by Bartek Osowczyk) create the impression of a damsel of coquettish intent, with a certain darkness that lies within.
Ratajczack makes exceptional use of depth and magnification within the shoot, creating focus on not only the exquisite forms of Weronika Kryszak, but also of the breathtaking setting where in the shoot has been taken. There is a certain drawing power that comes from Kryszak, sending you into not only a world of designer fashion but allows you to get lost in the secret story behind her eyes.

During the summer you want your skin to radiate with a glow, not with sweat and oilbut that’s easier said than done when you’re spending a whole day in the heat! Let’s be realistic. For music festivals especially, you’re not going to have the time or the resources (hello, porta-potty!) to touch up. So to build a fresh, dewy look that will actually last, you’re going to need to prep the right way. Celebrity makeup artist Nick Barose is a pro at creating a glow minus the grease. And just in the nick of time, because oil-blotting papers can only take us so far when there are hours of dancing to be done!
Here are the guru’s five tips for a gorgeous festival-faring look.
