So Swizz Beatz dropped the music video to ’Everyday (Coolin’)’, and while everybody knows that dude is a sartorial BEAST what with collaborations with none other than Christian Louboutin, we here at MTV Style think Eve is dipped in AMAZINGNESS courtesy of her stylist, Liz McClean. The fashions this woman rocks in the video are not so much “in-your-face” as they are “grab-you-by-the-face-and-shake-you-until-you-can’t-see-straight”. And she’s the first lady of rap, after all, so like, respect.
A TRULY OBSCENE AMOUNT OF CRAMAZING. YUM.

Swizz has the right idea, pointing his thumb back at Eve with that face and total body-language that reads, “Don’t ask me. Just peep this ish,” but let’s not discount his mega-studded jacket, leather cap, and the opaquest of black shades. And Eve, well, there’s so much going on right here that we’ll have to break it down in the next SEVERAL steps.
CAT’S EYES. MASTERFUL FALSIES. HINT OF EAR CUFF.
Please appreciate the perfectly matte complexion, the immaculate cat eyes, and impeccable falsie application to where I’m totally fooled and mad at the world for not blessing me with luxuriously thick dark lashes. HOWEVER, what is THAT I spy off to the right??
ZOMG ERICKSON BEAMON EARRING!!
BAM! Hoooooly embellishments, that is one intricate ear ornament!! Look at this thing (I mean, how can you NOT?)! There are spikes, there are chains, there are rhinestones, there are parts of my heart that are hardening from jealousy. This Erickson Beamon earring is NUTS.
GLORIOUSLY LOUCHE THE BLONDS CORSET
Afkadjkjkfhajklf, remember yesterday when we were gushing about Nicki Minaj’s gold corset on ’Dancing with the Stars’? Well, remember that it was made by The Blonds? Eve’s voluptuous spiky metal corset is also crafted by these sartorial magic men. WANTWANTWANT.
DEEP SIDE PART. MEAN MUG. STUDS.
Eve wears a studded leather jacket and leather leggings (both Philipp Plein) with a deliciously low side part and dark borderline goth lips. She’s a tough woman, she knows her fashion, everyone stand down.
LEOPARD PRINT. HARDHARDHARDWARE.
E-V-E pulls out all the stops with this look. On top, a leopard print Philipp Plein jacket, a rubber bandeau by Jac Langheim, and a metal corset by Rodrigo Otazu. Yes, you read that right, a RUBBER BANDEAU and a METAL CORSET. And I bet Eve could wear them on the Fourth of July and not break a sweat.
LUCITE PEEPTOE BOOTIES MATCHY PATENT LEATHER.
On the bottom, Eve’s leggings are Philpp Plein, and these gorgeous lucite bootie wedges are Topshop Unique. Not only are they pretty and edgy and on-trend, but they’re also functional! Anyone hanging around her feet who happens to need to see through them and is also immobile can do just that. How considerate! Swizzy’s even got his shine on in slick, black patent leather.
STUNNA SHADES, BEAR KEYCHAIN, VARSITY JACKET SWAG
And there was NO WAY I was going leave these little guys out! These little dudes in their varsity jackets, bowties, and stunna shades/hipster glasses are TEEMING with swagswagswagswag (one for each). And they all have teddy bear key chains on their jeans!!! *collective awwwww*
