All week long, we have been reliving the golden era of hip-hop; specifically, the late ’80s and early ’90s years that Yo! MTV Raps ruled the airwaves. If the nostalgia or the awesomely bad style moments hasn’t convinced you to tune in to tonight’s The 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Rap Moments, perhaps the then and now style evolution of some of your favorite celebrities will. In the most visible transformation, Ice-T traded in his pimp wardrobe for more refined wares. And Salt-N-Pepa retired the spandex (which we kind of loved) in favor of chic dresses.
You can watch the 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Rap Moments special on VH1 tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Looking back at the style choices of the Yo! MTV Raps era sends us on a trip down memory lane. How cool were overalls in the ’90s? They’ve even tried to make a comeback (to which we plead please, folks, let them die!). Seeing Tupac in his custom made T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E overalls or Bobby Brown with his slanted high top fade reminds us of a time when rap was fun. As cool as these styles seemed then, today they would almost certainly make the what-not-to wear fashion list.
It’s all in good sport that we poke fun at the awesomely bad style moments of the Yo! MTV Raps era. Speaking of which, our two-hour special The 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Raps Moments airs this Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET/PT. In the meantime, reminisce on the styles we loved then and chuckle at now.

To be fair, the guys of One Direction are between 18 and 21, and drinking beer in these photos, but we’re still torn on whether we call them cutie patooties or hottie patotties. “One Thing” we know (see what we did there?!), is that between their energetic, infectious performances on SNL and these playful shots from Sydney Harbour, we’re a hop, skip and a jump from printing out these photos and taping them all over our cubicles Tiger Beat style. Whether you’re a sucker for Louis Tomlinson‘s smile [raises hand] or Harry Styles‘ serious six pack, the boys of 1D generously provided today’s eye candy. Enjoy!

This fur-filled GIF wall was constructed with a heavy heart. As our managing editor Michelle Collins signs off for the last time tonight, we could think of no more appropriate way to show our love than with bouncy baby goats, belly-flopping corgis and a dash of Hamm for good measure. Pour one out for MiMi CoCo tonight and before you do, admire our Ultimate Farewell Michelle Collins GIF Wall.
It’s hard to believe it’s been over 20 years since America first busted a move to “U Can’t Touch This.” With undeniable (and regrettable) fashion influence and “Too Legit” dance moves, MC Hammer was the original flaunter of swag.
Throw on your nearest pair of parachute pants and celebrate Hammer’s 50th b-day with The Ultimate MC Hammer 50th Birthday GIF Wall.
Spring may have just arrived, but for millions of Game of Thrones fans, winter is nigh. The ants in our pants that’ve been kicking around since those three little dragons appeared on Dany’s shoulders can finally take a nap as the cult hit returns to HBO on Sunday night.
One of the visually-stunning show’s strengths is the extensive hair, makeup and costuming the cast undertakes. Each day pretty brunette Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) undergoes a transformation into a bleached-out, lady warrior to play Khaleesi. Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) goes blonde as well and cute Maisie Williams rocks a full-on tomboy look as Arya Stark. Prep for the much-anticipated premiere by checking out the primary cast (some lost last season…spoiler alert!) on and off the set.

Heart palpitations. Exhaustion. Popcorn bloat. Loss of ability to speak coherently. All of these things are side effects of finally seeing the long-awaited adaptation of The Hunger Games. In lieu of a review merely consisting of “Awesome!” “Amazeballs!” and “OMG,” here’s a giant GIF wall to perfectly illustrate the array of emotions you can expect to experience during and after the gloriousness that is The Hunger Games. Sidenote: Fine, Peeta was cast correctly.
The Ultimate Hunger Games Reaction GIF Wall ahead.
Since stealing our hearts with 2004′s “She Will Be Loved,” Maroon 5 frontman and Voice judge Adam Levine has had a steady stream of hits, accompanied by a growing collection of tattoos and heart-fluttering music videos. With sometimes shirtless, always sexy performances and ultra chic red carpet style, Levine is perpetually making our heartstrings “Move Like Jagger” (sorry).
While Adam likely rings in #33 alongside his supermodel girlfriend Anne V, us common folk can gander at these 33 piping hot pics. Drool away, dear readers.

Another day, another fabulous Paris Fashion Week event for Kristen Stewart. Flaunting her famously twiggy legs in a Louis Vuitton leopard print minidress, Kris showed up to the opening of “Louis Vuitton – Marc Jacobs: The Exhibition” with boytoy Robert Pattinson in tow. Our girl has been looking better than ever…but what’s that we see? Un peu case of bedhead? Perhaps tousled by Rob? Blame those LV Merry-Go-Round pumps.
