Hail Bieber, The Fashion Emperor Next Door

2012 is here, which means Justin Bieber has quickly abandoned his all-ages holiday tunes in preparation for hitting the lab with the likes of Drake and Kanye West. And since the latter considers himself a fashion icon and creative mind the likes of which the world has yet to see (DONDA!) The Bieb is stepping up his sartorial game in a big way, trading flat-brims, Nikes and yes, that new Jesus tattoo, for Thierry Mugler on his new V cover, on stands January 12. The photos call to mind Julius Caesar and the friendly face of Mary Tyler Moore, confirming our belief that Bieber is the world's greatest fashion emperor next door. Don't beliebe—an accident, we swear—us? Check out the rest of the photos and determine for yourselves if Bieber is prepared to go head-to-head with Yeezy's leather kilts and the fabulous knitwear of Aubrey Graham in the new year.

That smirk is because he skinned the animal necessary to make that fine-looking jacket. A self-sufficient leader is hard to find.

Drawing inspiration from Julius Caesar. Or Cleopatra, if you squint.

But who needs a standing military? Bieber can stop any global conflict with his eyes.

Or with a warrior stance, and potentially blinding lamé uniform, like that.
