For Hyundai Motor's StyleNite

Hyundai Motor has caught on to the fact that its customers want to drive in style: On Tuesday night, it launched a new fashion and lifestyle platform at its StyleNite event, hosted by celebrity stylist Ty Hunter. And to kick off the new venture, he created a fashion collaboration with GREEDILOUS.

Hunter's roster of clients include none other than Beyoncé herself—so you know his sense of style is unparalleled. The colorful collection he debuted with GREEDILOUS and its designer Youn Hee Park was an ode to Hyundai Motor's latest release, an SUV called the Palisade. The line of dresses, jackets, shirts, pants, and accessories took inspiration from the design of the car, resulting in a collection you can actually wear. Though it's full of lively prints and colors, so you won't go unnoticed. And the designs not only capture Hunter's unique sense of style but also include the bold cuts and unique prints Park's collections are famous for.

StyleNite also served as the official launch of Hyundai Motor's new lifestyle platform, @Hyundai.Lifestyle, that will live across Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. The point of the collection and the new platform was to show that a love of fashion and a love of cars can definitely co-exist. Hyundai Motor's Executive Vice President and CMO, WonHong Cho, said that the event and the collaboration was a new attempt to gain an authentic understanding of the brand's customers. "There is no better way to build an authentic connection with customers than through culture; music and fashion in particular," he said. "We are planning to get closer with customers through interesting cultural events, starting with StyleNite."

Style Nite was definitely a hit, too: Stars like Larsen Thompson, Tess Holiday, Sofia Richie, Erika Jayne, and Shaun Ross showed up to support the launch and to check out Hunter's collection, with beats by DJ Raiden. It's not every day that a car brand and a fashion brand team up to collaborate, but this collection shows that maybe the two should mix more often. See the best moments from the night and our favorite looks from the line, below.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
