Is "Uptown Funk" the Most Stylish Music Video of the Year?

Music producer Mark Ronson may be best known for creating impossibly catchy aural landscapes, but it's hard to ignore the fact that he's a damn snazzy dresser too. Now he's teamed up with Bruno Mars on a funk-heavy new single aptly called "Uptown Funk."

20-Year-Old Boy, 70-Year-Old Man Both Wear Saint Laurent

Despite a 50-year age difference, One Direction's Harry Styles (in leopard print, above left) and the Rolling Stones' Keith Richards (in embroidered velvet, below left) were spotted wearing jackets from Saint Laurent's yet-to-be-released spring 2015 collection over the past two days. Since Hedi Slimane's arrival at the brand, the designer has been able to not only convey a certain rebellious swagger in his clothing, he's been able to excite the generally stoic fashion crowd—a feat, to say the least. And he's clearly building an audience that cuts a wide swath and has an expansive range (considering you can afford it). see more

"It seems so obvious to just say yes, but it had taken us so long to decide to go our separate ways," explains Julia, 30, who's recorded with Angus, 28, since 2006.
