I didn't go to sleep last night until well after 4 a.m., and it's not just because I had to finish the seaosn-two finale of Orange Is The New Black (although that certainly was part of it). Nicki Minaj promised a Monday night release for her "Pills N Potions" video, and I was NOT about to miss that extremely important moment. And while I might have ghastly dark circles under my eyes now, I can confidently say that it was totally worth it.

After Nicki released a teaser of the video late last week, we just KNEW the full video would be amazing. (I mean, the 45-second clip already featured seven different looks.) The final product contains a perfect mix of stripped down and crazy—which also describes Nicki's current personal style, TBH. Who else could pull off subtle Alice in Wonderland imagery AND pasties over the course of a few minutes? Nobody, that's who.

Demi Lovato performs at 2014 L.A. Pride Parade.

Can you imagine being charged with inspiring and entertaining 400,000 people AND looking fabulous AF while doing it? Well, that's exactly what Demi Lovato's duties as Grand Marshall of the L.A. Pride Parade entailed, and she made it look like the most fun and natural job in the world.

During the Sunday afternoon festivities, Demi sang and danced while crowds flooded the streets to cheer her on. Her performance of "Really Don't Care" was energetic and upbeat, but her black suit gave off something a bit more serious (and borderline S&M).

In case you weren't aware, 1990 is, like, the most important year in the history of ever. Not only did it usher in the decade of grunge, neon, and supermodels, but it also marks the birth of the great Iggy Azalea.

If you follow Iggy's wardrobe game at all, you know she clearly feels a connection to the '90s (umm, have you SEEN her Clueless-themed "Fancy" video?). So, in honor of Iggy's 24th birthday (TODAY, June 7!), we decided to take a look back at some of her favorite trends that were ALSO born in the '90s. Way to own your decade, girl!

Angelina Jolie, 50 Cent

Who wore Maleficent horns better?

The new Maleficent movie has only been in theaters for a week, but the famous Disney villain has already become synonymous with Angelina Jolie. Angie personifies the role SO much (trust me, you should see it), we can't imagine anyone else ever topping her interpretation. Well, at least that's what we thought...until we saw 50 Cent on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night.

By now, you've all seen what Rihanna wore to the CFDA Awards earlier this week. Y'know, that sparkly dress that would DEF get censored by Instagram? The rhinestone-studded gown was nothing short of a work of art. And like all works of art, it takes a lot of time and dedication to reach the final product. In the case of Rih's dress, that dedication looks something like an entire team of people gluing microscopic crystals onto fabric with tweezers.

Adam Selman, Rihanna's costume designer and collaborator, posted a video to Instagram of that process, writing: "Detail of my incredible team at work with @official_swarovski and @rupaulsdragrace led by the true queen @meetingsmagazine #glamazon." Glamazon, indeed! We kind of can't stop watching this mesmerizing video on repeat, even though the tediousness threatens to make our brains explode. Ah, what we do in the name of #FASHUN.

Kacey Musgraves

If there's one thing Kacey Musgraves knows, it's how to make an entrance. She burst onto the country music scene fairly recently, but she's already become the genre's newest sweetheart. And she's equally sensational when it comes to her fashion choices, as proven by her duo of dresses at Wednesday night's CMT Music Awards.

Kacey wore two different black ensembles over the course of the evening (maybe she's been listening to a lot of Johnny Cash lately?), but they couldn't be any further from your classic LBDs. She appeared first in a glamorous and formal gown with a cinched-waist full skirt. The whole thing could have been very uptight, were it not for the beaded trim and Kacey's fun and casual updo.

CMT Awards

Let's play, y'all.

The 2014 CMT Music Awards are tonight (yeeeeehaw!), which means it's time to bust out your Carrie Underwood CD and watch line dancing videos on YouTube. It ALSO means you only have a few hours to brush up on your sense of country style (which, BTW, is very on-trend right now). You don't want to be the only one missing out on the celebrities' sartorial nods to the Wild West, do you?

Chris Kattan, Mango

The last person you'd expect to see at the CFDAs (basically the Oscars of fashion) is a goofy comedian. UNLESS, of course, he was dressed as the most fashionable Saturday Night Live character of all time (besides Maya Rudolph as Donatella). We're talking about none other than Mango, the enchanting exotic dancer played by Chris Kattan during his time on the show. When we saw Mango walk down the red carpet as Alexander Wang's date, we were equal parts excited and confused. Sure, we were stoked to see the character resurrected in leather hot pants and a glittery beret, but also...why was he there in the first place?

Ariana Grande, Iggy Azalea

Let's all say it together: FINALLY! Ariana Grande has been teasing us with sneak peeks of her "Problem" music video for an eternity now, and today is the day that our dreams became a reality at last. The hyped vid launched at 4pm today (true to Ariana's Twitter countdown), and it's everything we hoped it would be.

But enough waiting. Let's dive right in and dissect this bad boy...

The video opens on a sparkling figure. We can't see her face yet—who could this mystery woman be??

Surprise! It's Ariana. She's looking expectedly retro in a sequined minidress and white go-go boots. Also, notice that signature spiral backdrop that's been in ALL of her Instagrams lately.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora for 'Nylon.'

If Hollywood ever decides to make a Spice Girls biopic (although it would be impossible to top the sheer perfection of 1997's Spice World), I would strongly suggest they consider Rita Ora for the role of Sporty Spice. I mean, she's already a British pop star. AND her athletic fashion sense is totally on point—most recently in the June 2014 issue of Nylon.

Rita gave us some sneak peeks of the glossy spread on her Instagram, because she's very thoughtful. (Ty, bb!) Although she only revealed a few looks, the main attraction is definitely the sneakers + varsity jacket ensemble from her forthcoming Adidas Originals collection. We're guessing (OK, hoping) these pieces are part of the August 21 delivery. The sneakers are your classic three-stripe Adidas kicks, while the jacket is a badass varsity number with leather sleeves and an RO badge. (We assume the RO stands for Rita Ora, but here are some other likely possibilities: Russian Orthodox, Reverse Osmosis, Radio Occultation, or Right On!)

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