We already know that Emma Watson is a versatile actress. After all, her genre-skipping onscreen roles are exactly the reason she's received the MTV Trailblazer Award! However, the 22-year-old's talent for transforming herself isn't restricted just to movies— she's proven her style chameleon status time and again in magazines, too. But despite her recent edgy Marie Claire UK look, her preppy-cool NYLON style, and repping her inherently chic beauty in T, the actress's new British GQ cover STILL called for a double take, because it's just so different than how we're used to seeing her. The star graces the publication's May issue decked out in total Bling Ring fashion, channeling her onscreen alter ego Nicki with the same long hair and body-hugging styles she sports in the forthcoming Sofia Coppola flick. The cut-out dress might conjure up major '90s Pretty Woman vibes (see the resemblance?), but the body jewelry, the giant Frappuccino, and the sunglasses propped atop her head keeps the ensemble firmly planted in the here and now.

Despite the fact that Nicki Minaj has been ALL over the place recently, what with her American Idol gig, her Pink Friday perfumes (and the accompanying bottle clothing collection) and her ELLE cover, we've got to admit, we miss her live shows. The pop star says she's (understandably) too busy with her various fashion projects to plan a tour right now, though, and you know what? That's OK, because her new "High School" video is an excellent alternative.

Yep, after days of giving sneak peeks and BTS snaps on Twitter, the time has finally come! Barbz dropped her video upon the world earlier this morning in her MTV First, and we've had the neon-drenched clip on loop ever since. Director Benny Boom captured the lovey dovey vibes between Nicki and Lil Wayne (who's also featured on the track), following the duo as their steamy romance heats up in and around a gorgeous mansion. Not to mention, there's also some crime and jewelry thievery thrown in for good measure (but you'll have to watch to find out what happens!). The style is predictably eye-popping, with Nicki swapping her Moschino, Balmain and McQueen "realness" for highlighter-hued swimwear and body con dresses. But enough with the generalities...let's get down to business. Get all the "High School" nitty gritty outfit deets below.

If you follow Taylor Swift's every footstep as closely as we do, then you already know that the pop star is a huge fan of Vintage Shoe Company. She's rocked a tobacco-hued lace-up pair in a photo shoot for her Red album cover, sported a similar style for Rolling Stone magazine, and—here's how you know she's genuinely obsessed—wears them off-duty, as well. She stepped out in New York City this weekend in a red suede version of her beloved Aubrey oxfords, and the bright kicks added the perfect amount of prep to her buttoned-up, skinny jeans ensemble. But it turns out these aren't just any shoes... the pair was actually created specifically for Taylor and her Red tour.

Karl Lagerfeld

Ever since they first met back in 2011, Lady Gaga and Karl Lagerfeld have been two peas in a pod, closerthanclose, and total BFFs. Some people might even go so far as to call them soul mates. After all, the elusive Chanel designer is a notoriously tough nut to crack, but if ANYONE can do it—and pick up an award and tons of haute couture dresses along the way—it's Mother Monster. Given their tight relationship, it's not that shocking that the Kaiser would give the pop star a shout-out for her 27th birthday last week. But instead of showering her in free clothes, he did something unexpected (to us, anyway) and sketched Gaga a handmade birthday card!

Ciara wears looks from Givenchy's Resort 2013 and Spring 2013 collections.

Despite its name, menswear is so totally NOT just for guys. We've been fans of stealing style ideas from the boys on the runway for a while now, but now Ciara has one-upped us all by lifting a pair of outfits straight from the Givenchy men's catwalk! And she looks AMAZING, we might add. Immediately after sitting front row at Riccardo Tisci's Paris Fashion Week womenswear show last month, Ciara stopped by Music Choice’s SWRV TV Network in New York City sporting a printed jacket from the men's Resort 2013 line. Splashed with an updated military pattern, there's NO arguing that this luxe bomber adds a decidedly masculine edge to the rest of her all-black outfit. We love how the topper's oversize fit complements her super skinny leather pants and heeled boots...and these perfectly opposite proportions are one of the reasons menswear on ladies works so well.

Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper at 'The Place Beyond The Pines' premiere last night in New York.

We've been tracking the fashion in the new flick The Place Beyond The Pines for a while now, and how could we not? I mean, METALHEAD WARDROBE, people! But while the on-set stills have given us plenty to talk about as we wait for the movie's release this weekend, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper's premiere looks are an entirely different topic of discussion on their own. The two stars hit the red carpet last night in New York City looking dapper as usual, but with some, um, unusual twists to the traditional formal dude uniform.

Um, where did the time go? Easter is only three days away! But if you're like us and have been too busy rejoicing the fact that spring is FINALLY HERE to actually think about what you're going to wear this weekend, that's totally fine. We get that. So we've done the hard part for you and scoured the internet for some of the cutest Easter-worthy outfits the WWW has to offer. Yes, there are the expected pastel sundresses. But we've also included skirts, pants, and even jumpsuits(!) into the mix, so consider all your springtime bases covered. And the best part is, these pieces are totally versatile, which means you can wear them long after your family brunch has ended, the Easter egg hunt is over, and your sugar high has finally passed. So grab your credit card— you might need express shipping on this one— and LET'S SHOP.


Wear a printed dress this Easter!

In our brains, breezy printed dresses are THE quintessential springtime uniform. Wear them with sandals when padding around the city during the day, dress 'em up with heels or wedges at night...seriously, there are SO many options. Plus, a bonus: all three of these frocks have a modest knee-skimming silhouette, which means they're family-friendly for Easter, without sacrificing the cute factor. Win win?

It's only been three days since Ariana Grande dropped her new single "The Way" upon the interwebs, and already this song is on FIRE. Featuring Mac Miller, the adorably addictive crush anthem has shot directly to #1 on iTunes, the lyric clip has upwards of 225,000 views, and last night she released the track's official video! We've been keeping tabs on the Victorious actress's emerging offscreen style for a minute now, and Ariana the singer stayed true to her girly, bow-loving self in "The Way." While Mac rocked a variety of vintage sweaters from Coogi , Ariana kept things easy and cute in tank tops, Soffe shorts, and girly staples. Get the complete style breakdown— plus how to score these outfits yourself— below!

Karl Lagerfeld fetes his new Melissa Shoes collab in NYC.

When Karl Lagerfeld isn't busy crafting custom dresses for Rita Ora and recruiting musicians like Frank Ocean for intimate Chanel showcases, don't expect to find him kicked back on the couch catching up on ABC Family reruns. In classic overachiever fashion, this is a man who clearly DOESN'T do well with free time, and his new collab with Melissa Shoes is pure evidence of that. Not that we're complaining or anything, because that just means there are more Karl goods for the rest of us! Take the designer's new Melissa shoe collection, for example. We first tipped you off to the plastic kicks back in December, and now they've finally landed! The Kaiser and the rest of his crew fêted the Kollaboration (yep, that's the name) in New York last night, where everyone got to peep *those* ice cream high heels in real life.

Between this week's New York Times profile on founder Sophia Amoruso (they nickname her "Cinderella of Tech"), a rumored deal with Urban Outfitters, and its day-to-day biz of dressing girls in generally badass, super cute clothes, Nasty Gal is clearly on a fast track to world domination. But first, the label has to make a quick pit stop at Coachella. For the newest lookbook, Sophia and co. recruited YouTube star and all-around Cali cool girl Pia Mia Perez to model the brand's latest collection of festival-ready wares. We first suspected something rad was brewing between the two when Sophia posted this picture to Instagram a couple of weeks ago with the caption "@princesspiamia prepares to caravan across the desert with our team to shoot the upcoming Coachella lookbook. Instagram castings do happen!" Hold up, Instagram CASTINGS?! With almost 200K followers on her @PrincessPiaMia account, Sophia isn't exactly plucking Pia Mia from obscurity, Cinderella-style...but the unusual story of how the teen scored her first real modeling gig does sound a bit like a 21st century fairytale.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
