Delfina Delettrez’s newest line, photographed by Philippe Jarrigeon spells out surrealism. The jewelry juxtaposes high end precious stones with the proletariat materials of our every day. Diamonds and pearls sit near enamel, silicon and rubber.

The Weeknd’s latest video reminds us of another wicked game (we think you know the one ), if only because of its surprise moments of vulnerability. Both videos are shot in moody black and white, and both show sensual sides of the singers not otherwise popularized–Abel Tesfaye’s full profile, for example.

.GIF by Jim Drain Though its recent vogue might deceive you, this year marks the 25th anniversary of the animated .GIF (that dancing baby grew up so fast)! In celebration of this, interactive .GIF incubation area Tumblr has teamed up with Paddle8 for Moving the Still: A Festival of GIFS , the first open call and exhibition of its kind which will somehow showcase the image files both digitally and in “real space.” Chief selection council member Johnny Misheff has teamed up with Paddle8 to invite many well-known creatives—think the Mulleavy sisters, Ryan Trecartin, Nicola Formichetti, Inez & Vinoodh, and the like—to serve as a selection committee of sorts, each choosing 25 .GIF submissions to be shown in their own specific categories. Anyone can submit .GIFs for consideration, and if selected, will see their work displayed in an exhibition during Miami Basel. Today, Paddle8 has debuted an editorial project to supplement this, featuring work by Nick Knight, Spencer Sweeney, Jim Drain, and more! Check it out here

VSP hasn’t disappointed us in coming up with that perfect little leather jacket, that necessary fur-lined bag, and all the other essentials for a second life as a demure, cat-like antihero. For S/S ‘13, the brand lightens up and gives us a luxe office look, staged in a heavy, sensual video. VSP SS13 from VSP on Vimeo .
Justin’s newest video trumps rumors of a reported stolen laptop, putting a pause to a few heightened hopes that nude Bieber vids were floating around. “Beauty And A Beat” stalks Justin around a water park at night with a low res camera after alleging impossibly that the video is made up of the thieved footage. We spin past jumping friends, clutching teenaged girls, and ribbon-dancing acrobats: a lead-in to expert choreography and synchronized swimming
