As if breaking a bunch of records weren't enough, Iggy Azalea just released the new video for "Problem" with Ariana Grande. Watch it in all its trippy psychadelic glory right here.

The Look: G-Star Raw Summer 2014 here
The only thing better than great jeans? Wearing denim from head to toe...and no, I'm not just talking about your average Texas tuxedo. For the summer '14 lookbook, G-Star Raw took the whole blue jean baby thing to the next level with denim on denim on denim. Denim hats, denim jackets, denim shirts--you name it, its here.  Some might shy away from this, but for me, it's just proof you can never have too much of a good thing. 

The Face: Bumble and Bumble's Hairdressers Invisible Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

The Song: "Pitch Black" by Pujol
