In times like these, when the world seems like it's all risqué Miley's, sexy Britney's, and artsy Gaga's (who we love),there are a few new comers taking the style scene by storm, and that's without angering the parents of toddlers in tiaras, who rely on pop culture to set the example for the children.Among the fledgling few is Ariana Grande, the little girl with the big voice. The singer got her start in Hollywood as an actress playing "Cat Valentine" on Nickelodeon's "Victorious" and currently reprises the role on the network's spin-off series "Sam and Cat". Often compared to, and fondly referred to as the new "Mariah", Ariana and her stellar vocal ability bursted on the pop music scene with her number one single "The Way" featuring Mac Miller, and quickly followed by releasing her debut effort, "Yours Truly", the first record by a female vocalist to open at number one on the billboard charts since Kesha's "Animal" in January of 2010. No strager to the teen scene, Ariana is best known for her infectous laughter and, at times long fiery red locks, which she always wears half up and half down, She is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most watched fashion "it" girls, inspiring millions to copy her seductively sweet yet wholesome style. With an affinity for poof dresses, and midriff baring seperates, Ariana's style is a subtle blend of feminine colors like cotton candy pinks, and bright yellows paired with flirtatous prints, saucy red lips, and delicate accessories. But this pop princess isn't all bubble gum, She looks scorching in sky-high heels, and like other girls her age enjoys a bit of sex appeal, often showing her stomach and sporting short shorts like in the music video for her second single, "Baby, I". For her latest video for the single, "Right There", she channeled the shakesperean era, modeling a long victorian-esque gown as well as her signiture hairstyle. The video features hip hop superstar, Big sean, and model/actor Patrick Schwarzenegger (yes, Arnold's son). Wether it's playful dress, or sultry pant suit, the one thing Ariana Grande stays true to, is herself. She's a refreshing alternative to the overly-sexed fashions of today, and gets the gold star for effortless beauty and trendy fashion. See Slikdeshow for more pics!

"We're live in 5,4,3,2..." Those must've been the words muttered by the folks at Diesel right before their latest project went viral, taking the world of social networking by storm. #DIESELREBOOT is the first project for Nicola Formichetti, the brand's artistic director. The campaign is fashion forward and progressive, with models featuring a mix of different sizes, styles, and ethnicities. It's an innovative approach which circles around the most important asset to the brand, the consumer. Nicola and the designers at Diesel are enlisting "a new generattion of brand ambassadors and fashioin leaders" who they believe will give the iconic brand new life.
Jeremy Scott, fondly known for his eclectic and often times outlandish approach to fashion; will be heading to Moschino and adding Creative Director to his long list of fashion duties, including his partnership with Adidas as well as his own fashion brand. Scott is no stranger to the brand, having even interned for the fashion house during his final year as a student at Pratt University. The designer was approached by Moschino in July in a seemingy effortless attempt to snag the print-loving "fashionisto" as the brand ushers in a new phase. The rest is history.
American designer Marc Jacobs, made the executive decision to pull a controversial t-shirt from his line Marc by Marc Jacobs, after receiving a dramatic amount of backlash. The top, now unavailable for sale at most locations, depicted two boots, with his signature name written vertically on each, showcasing white supremacy band, Skrewdriver's, insignia. The lead singer was a self proclaimed Neo-Nazi, making the cut of the $68 shirt from the collection a necessary move on Jacobs behalf. His apologies for implementing the t-shirt into his brand was recognized by fashion critics, but his reasons for gravitating towards such a logo in the first place still has brows raised. Many stores have rushed to liberate themselves of any coalition with the controversial design. The shirt is still available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
For some, the terms fashion and style are easily confused. At no fault of their own, these few are distance from the world of glamour and know nothing of the intricacies that define it. However, those who have spent their lives living, breathing, and love/hating the industry know that the two words are not twin sisters at all, but more like distant cousins to say the least. The wise and talented fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent once said, “It is about style not fashion. Fashions come and go, but style is forever.” Those enticing words got us to thinking as to how true this perception may be.
Spring has sprung into action, and so have all your favorite designers of menswear. For years now, fashion for men has been developing from more than just suits and slacks, into daring pieces that play with silhouettes, experiment with color, and give innovation to the consumer. This year is no different. Three key trends men should be ripping from the runway this spring are Prints & Patterns, Fit &Tailoring, as well as Color.
Prints & Patterns are great for the budding businessman and the more classic male who doesn’t want to get to out there with his wardrobe, but still wants to stay current. This season the runways were a blaze with prints from designers like Vivienne Westwood, and Sarah Burton who awed with a bronze combination gold and silver metallic blazer with matching trousers for Alexander McQueen (see left). The bolder male “fashionistas” can go to the extreme, while the further subdued can opt for more subtle approaches like Viktor & Rolph’s zigzag patterned black and silver suit also featuring a metallic finish (see slideshow).
