Selena Gomez, Lorde, Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge—it seems like Taylor Swift has a different best friend for each week of the year, doesn't it? (Maybe she coordinates them with her shoes.) The latest gal in Taylor's BFF lineup is Sarah Hyland, Modern Family star and full-time cutie. While Taylor and Sarah seem like a natural pairing—they are about the same age and like hanging out with Meredith, Taylor's cat—they definitely are polar opposites when in comes to personal style. Take a look at these outfits from their friend date last night, for example: TSwift wore a LBD and pink wool coat, while Sarah rocked black skinnies and a leather jacket. Oh no! So different! This relationship is probably doomed, right?
MTV's new series Faking It debuted last night and—guess what?—it's really good! A new show means new characters to meet and, more important, more wardrobes to discuss. As with many MTV shows (see: Teen Wolf), the fashion choices seem totally appropriate for high schoolers, and we are very excited to see what Karma, Amy, Shane, and Liam wear in the rest of the episodes.
I'm getting ahead of myself, though—let's talk about the pilot's most fashionable moments.
Amy and Karma on 'Faking It.'
We knew we'd like this show when it opened with a shot from within a closet. Hi, we like closets and the things that go in them. Karma (Katie Stevens), one of the two lead characters, then asks her best friend/fake girlfriend, Amy (Rita Volk), how blind people get dressed, which is never really resolved.
"I am fashion" - Justin Bieber

It would seem that Justin Bieber just can't win. There was that time he hoped Anne Frank would have been a Belieber. Or when his bodyguards carried him up the Great Wall of China. And of course, most recently, he paid a visit to a controversial landmark in Japan. But you know where Biebs is winning? In the wardrobe department. Just look at that oversized KTZ T-shirt with a big ol' cobra and "POISON" written in Arabic (which, BTW, you can buy for yourself if you have $365 burning a hole in your pocket). Bieber's fashionable, and he knows it. So much so, that he captioned this snap with a weighty declaration: "I am fashion." Whoa. Not just fashionable or fashion forward. Bieber. Is. Fashion.
One Direction shoes because why not.

Have your feet been feeling decidedly un-British recently? Do you long to have signatures on your
sneakers (sorry) trainers? Are you very, VERY much into One Direction? Well, then, you're in luck—One Direction finally have shoes that fit all of your needs and desires. This morning on Twitter, the One Direction account announced that for the next five weeks they'd be sending a pair to five people who subscribe to their newsletter. Um, do you get to choose whose signature you get? Some people might only be interested in one specific pair, so, like, how do you guarantee you win the blue ones? Asking for a friend. Also, if this is a surprise, how do they obtain your shipping information and shoe size? While I wouldn't throw away a pair of Niall kicks that showed up on my doorstep (size 8.5 U.S. women's, please), I'd be weirded out that the people who run 1D's Twitter somehow found my address.

Elle pretty much killed it with this year’s lineup for their Women in Music issue: Iggy Azalea, Angel Haze, Ariana Grande, the list goes on. So, naturally, their party to celebrate the issue was poised to have just as much pizzazz. Angel Haze might have stolen the show though, with her performance and fresh hairstyle. The rapper, who modeled for the magazine’s May Issue with purple tips, performed with a new ombre ’do. Angel swapped out her previous hair color for a light blonde shade, all the better to match her Medusa necklace.

When an artist sees a blank canvas, the only natural reaction is to cover it. Enter Rita Ora. The singer appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night (April 23) to promote her new single, "I Will Never Let You Down," wearing a poofy white dress and white Stan Smith trainers. She looked gorgeous as always, but the simple outfit was a far cry from the wild, kooky, colorful Rita outfits we know and love. Where was all the leather? The quilted denim? Where were the cartoon characters?

I have a prediction that at some point in the future, history books shall recognize 2014 as The Year of Lupita. It may only be April, but Lupita Nyong'o has already won an Oscar, become the new face of Lancome, and stolen the heart of every single human on the planet. Not too shabby for just four months. ALSO, as of today, the actress has one more accomplishment to add to her 2014 résumé: being named the World's Most Beautiful by People magazine. It's a seriously impressive feat for someone who has been famous for less than 365 days, but c'mon, is anyone really surprised? Lupita's beauty and grace shine so brightly that any other choice would have felt like highway robbery.
Sweating is kind of a bummer. Unfortunately I do it all the time. Like when a stranger approaches me on the street to ask a simple question, or when I watch celebrities give awkward and embarrassing speeches at award shows. Or how about last week, when I sweat profusely through my wedding dress fitting, endlessly apologizing to the seamstress, while facing the hard reality of how much I will inevitably sweat during the wedding itself. Pretty cool life moment for me, but hey, it could have been worse. I could have been sweating AND smelled bad. Luckily, in fifth grade, I learned the importance of deodorant, so as much as I sweat, I usually never smell. Usually.
"No pants, no problem" - The White House (probably)

Ariana Grande is no stranger to evocative fashion, but her personal style has taken on a VERY sultry edge as of late. The pop star has traded in her side ponytails and A-line skirts for go-go boots and big hair. On Monday (April 21), she performed at the 136th Annual White House Easter Egg Roll in an oversized purple sweater and white knee-high boots that would make Nancy Sinatra very proud. In fact, Grande's whole steez as of late is giving us major flash backs to the woman whose boots were made for walking.
