Nicki Minaj performing 'Starships' on 'American Idol' in Hollywood.

Emerging from a giant pink space ship, Nicki Minaj descended onto the American Idol stage last night to perform her upcoming single "Starships" in cascading blonde curls, starfish earrings, and a rainbow bright mullet skirt. Conjuring an image of both an undersea confection and the actual Rainbow Brite cartoon character from the '80s. It was a mish-mash of themes that seemed to reference both space travel and a maniacal beach rave. Even though Nicki M's video has yet to make landfall (heh), we do know that it will include neon hair and a pink bikini thanks to numerous paparazzi shots of her writhing around the beaches of Hawaii.

If there's any pop star truly doing it ALL right now, it's Rihanna. There isn't a morning that goes by where she doesn't jump into our RSS feeds wearing something jaw-dropping all while buzzing around the planet making music, movies, and fashion happenings like it ain't no thang. Not only is she designing a fashion line, she's making her film debut in the upcoming sure-to-be-a-blockbuster Battleship. Oh, and did we mention that she's also doing a fashion reality show set in London? No wonder she's been spotted all over the damp gray streets of England's beloved city wearing a wardrobe of printacular madness. Seriously, though, what's with all these prints, Ri?

Our fashion prayers have been answered! Andre Leon Talley, aka contributing editor of American Vogue, former judge on America's Next Top Model, front row bon vivant, and general purveyor of all that is fash-witty and awesome, is getting his own Bravo show. Tentatively titled Fashion Stories of NYC, the show will center around Andre as a mentor to four up-and-coming fashion design teams who need that extra push to create, show, and sell their lines. Although it sounds like a familiar formula, we have high hopes that with ALT on board, it will be something else entirely.

Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of "Rolling Stone."

Jennifer Lawrence is all over the place, which is (wonderfully) unsurprising. If you don't know by now, she's the star of the mega-juggernaut book-to-film franchise, The Hunger Games, which has pretty much dominated popular culture for the last week (and a year before that if you count the fanaticism surrounding the awesome book series). The gal's working overtime in the publicity department, too, as she's appeared on ohhhhh, EVERY talk show on the planet, not to mention on various international mag covers (hi, Interview Germany). Her latest cover for the April issue of Rolling Stone is all-American, though, right down to the white T-shirt, dusty jeans, and windswept hair. We might go so far as to say in that it also includes that age-old tradition of pin-up fantasy, with what we can only describe as a generous display of nippulous areolasis.

Jacketed layers by Club Monaco and Madewell. Which is which?

Many of us have been waiting ages for Club Monaco to offer online shopping, and today our multilayered, gauzy-scarf prayers were answered. Long the favored brand for urban sophisticates looking to infuse their wardrobes with modern office separates and chic weekend wear alike, I can personally count Club Monaco on the top of my must-stop shopping list. Not only are their blazers exquisitely crafted in well-cut luxury fabrics, they're priced for those with a more modest budget. What's also interesting about this Canadian-born brand is that it is currently owned by Polo Ralph Lauren, so you know the level of taste and attention to quality is of the utmost importance. But here's where my "WHHAAA?" question-mark-slash-garbled-mouth-noise comes in. You guys, why does Club Monaco's website (and some of their clothing) suddenly, out of zee blue, remind me specifically of Madewell?

Clear lens sunglasses by Joia.

We know you're scratching your head right now because we are, too. How can these clearly CLEAR glasses be called SUNglasses, right? The fact is, Joia Clear as Day Sunglasses are, indeed, sunglasses and beyond that they're also totally cute. We don't know how much sun these brightly colored Where's Waldo frames help shield your precious pupil vision from harmful UV rays, but according to the verbiage on the Tobi shopping site, these are bona fide "UV protected lenses." But hoooowww do they do it?? We have no clue, but does it matter when these imported sunnies are available for only $8 a pair? Also, they come in an array of spring-friendly hues—from mint green and sky blue to a light shade of peach renamed "latte"—and are too much of a steal not to try. What do you think? Would you try clear lens sunglasses or are they completely ridiculous?

Rihanna, Taylor Kitsch, and Brooklyn Decker at a photocall in London for "Battleship."

We don't need to tell him this, but Taylor Kitsch is the Luckiest Man in the World™. Not only has he bravely faced the film critics who have been heavily criticizing his latest movie, he is out to prove 'em all wrong with his next film, Battleship, which also stars the beguiling Rihanna (making her film debut!) and Brooklyn Decker. We have nothing but praise for our beloved Tim Riggins, we mean Kitsch, as his football-uniform-slash-jeans-and-boots-strewn performance in Friday Night Lights is one of the highlights of our lives. The dude is poised to become a bona fide matinee idol, and what better way to welcome this stature than with a Ri Ri and B-Decks cocktail dress sammie?

Happy 26th Birthday Lady Gaga

Happy 26th Birthday, Lady Gaga!

Happy Birthday, Lady Gaga! We bestow you with a 26 paw salute to celebrate your special day and applaud an astoundingly stylish journey into your latter 20s. It's been an unforgettable year of everything from Armani zombies and cinnamon bun hair to pantlessness and the debut of your male alter ego, Jo Calderone. We didn't quite know what to get you, other than our lifelong Little Monster pledge of allegiance (and continued support of the Born This Way Foundation), but we popped on over to your Twitter page and noticed that you've already decided how you're going to celebrate...

Ay, mami (monster), a quinceañera birthday party, you say?! We can help with that! In our dream Gagaeañera world, we see you wearing a most triumphant dress à la that voluminous Chanel wonderment you wore to the opening of Gaga's Workshop. And in typical quinceañera fashion, you should top it with a tiara to remind you of your family and that you'll always be the world's princess. There should be a band, so we'd hire your three amigos Nicola Formichetti, Karl Lagerfeld, and Jean Paul Gaultier to serenade you near a gigantic cake (made by Chef Art Smith, of course). And, lastly, because we love you (though this is more bday fiesta than quinceañera), there would be a pony piñata filled with MAC lipstick, gummi bears, unbreakable teacups, and never-ending white roses that symbolize unity and a pureness of love. *Champagne clink* to you, fine Lady. May you enjoy another unprecedented year!

Not gonna lie, we're WILD about anything and everything created by Danielle and Jodie Snyder, aka the designers behind mega awesome jewelry line Dannijo. The entire MTV Style staff frequents the website on a regular basis, sharing our collective sighs over collar necklaces like deprived prairie banshees in desperate need of soul-quenching precious metals. Well, thanks to the duo's latest lookbook, we have even more reason to wail, as one Questlove brings his joyful countenance to the campaign as an honest-to-goodness striking jewelry model.

chloe moretz sky ferreira emmy rossum choker necklaces

We've been noticing a neck trend; in fact, to pinpoint it, we spotted a black tat necklace on Sky Ferreira recently and collectively discussed the reemergence of that '90s touchstone, the choker. Some of you might recall the choker necklace's appeal during the Melrose Place years throughout the '90s, but the trend was also a fave in 18th century France when Marie Antoinette wore all manner of close-fitting, frilly choker adornments to draw attention to her décolletage. But with Chloë Moretz and Emmy Rossum both wearing them to the Metropolitan Opera, we're starting to wonder if this is actually trending for realsies.
