Friend looking for stylish phones with good sound quality for < 300

    Hey Head-fi,
    A friend of mine is looking for some headphones, and was considering getting Monster Beats, but I suggested otherwise, saying that she can get much better SQ, for a much lower (or at least, equal price).
    To her, the most important quality is Appearance, and the second most is Sound quality. (However, I'd appreciate it if I could recommend her a pair of near-audiophile quality 'phones)
    To give you an idea of what kind of looks she likes, she likes the: 
    Monster Diamond Tears: http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m5vsi5Dldi1rxxk2to1_400.jpg
    I MEGO Thrones: http://www.yourtechreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Text-13.jpg
    (Two very different looks, I know)
    After browsing through the forums, the only 'phones I was able to find that I though would match her preference were the Logitech UE6000 : http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/surprisingly-good-logitec-ue6000-and-ue9000-page-2    But I don't know if these 'phones could compete with even the Monster Beats. 
    I also suggested the ATH-m50's, AKG-K550, Bowers and Wilkens P5, ATH-A700x, Denon D2000, and the V-moda M100 to no avail. (She liked the V-moda, but said that her hair would get caught in too many places. As well, she also liked the look of the AKG-K550.)
    Any help or suggestions with the issue would be much appreciated, thanks in advance.

    I like the B & W P5 or the Philips Cityscape Downtown ( Purple ).  Both are pretty styling phones and sound great to boot.
