Remember a few weeks back when Nicki Minaj announced not one but two new perfumes within a 24-hour span? She made her debut on HSN last night to hawk the fragrances on live television and it was spectacular. In addition to selling bust-shaped bottles, Nicki took the opportunity to give her fans—who stayed up all night to place their orders—valuable life advice like "put your best foot forward," "always be independent," and the classic ol' "stay in school." At one point, her co-host actually got so choked up she started crying? It was very late at night, I dunno.
Beyonce's On The Run bodysuit designed by Alexander Wang.
There was simply no way Beyonce's costumes for the On the Run tour would be anything less than flawless, but somehow they're shaping up to be even more impressive than we were expecting.
To whip up performance looks fit for a queen, she enlisted a bunch of her favorite designers. Last week, we learned that Michael Costello made a black lace bodysuit for the tour. Now, Bey is spilling the deets on that leather Alexander Wang bodysuit.

Despite getting face-palmed by new best friend Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson has single-handedly won Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. Apologies to all of the designers who spent the last few months of their lives working hard on their collections, and better luck next time to all the celebrities who flew halfway around the world to attempt a lasting statement in the front row (OK, Jared Leto's an exception here, for obvious reasons). Anyway, everyone else can just give up because Emma Watson—and her killer outfit at the Valentino show—is all the matters.
Sex Pistols and Nirvana, represent.
By now, you've probably heard the news. But if you're like "Huh? News? What?," allow me to make your day: 5 Seconds of Summer is performing at the 2014 Video Music Awards! It's a REALLY BIG DEAL (!!!) that warrants all caps and many exclamation points because it'll be the boy band's biggest-ever televised performance in the U.S., which means they're going to be an even more major deal than they already are. Which means this performance is very important. Which means what they wear onstage for said performance is, like, make-or-break important.
Fortunately, the four dudes from Australia have their performance style on lock. For the uninitiated, here's a style primer. If you're an expert in 5SOS, or just someone who stares at pictures of them periodically, you know that they're into repping other bands while performing. Big time. They've created something of a roll call of all their musical inspirations and we're here to pay homage to their T-shirt collection. Check out our faves below!
Cool tee, cooler face, coolest hair.
This may be the most perfect summer outfit?

Like us, Taylor Swift spent Fourth of July weekend chilling with her friends and baking a bunch of pies (unlike us, her friends are Emma Stone, Lena Dunham, Jaime King, and Jessica Szohr and her pie was perfect). Also unlike us? She was photographed looking remarkably fresh-faced without any awkward sunburns or undereye circles from too much fun and not enough sleep like the rest of America.
After her long-weekend getaway in Rhode Island, Taylor was spotted leaving a New York City gym wearing a flawless retro bustier number from Reformation. How she manages to look like that after ostensibly getting her fitness on is a bit of a mystery, but whatever she's doing in there is working because: abs. In the mood for good news? You can cop the same matching set for yourself—whether you wear it to the gym or to more formal occasions is totally up to you.
We haven't seen much of Ciara lately, because she's been busy giving birth and stuff, but over the weekend she surprised/delighted everyone by posting some snapshots that are important for a least 10 billion reasons. They're especially important, though, because (1) she's back to work! This is excellent news. More Ciara = more happiness for all. And (2) she's maybe doing said work with Calvin Klein (that "Obsession" sweatshirt and a shout out to CK's creative director Italo Zucchelli might be clues, right?). Finally, (3) WOULD YOU JUST LOOK AT HER NEW HAIR?! While there's no explicit mention of it in the photos' captions, her multicolor dreads would be hard to miss—they're a big change from the last time we saw her.
As the longtime face of the Adidas NEO label he designs, Justin Bieber is no stranger to modeling. Also—hello—his fragrance campaigns, anyone? Over the weekend, he posted a bunch of very Blue Steel snaps to Instagram, indicating that he might be ready to take the modeling thing a little more seriously. Or maybe he's merely indicating that he really, really likes his shiny blue jacket and just wanted the world to admire it, too. Regardless, let's take a closer look at them, shall we?
Wearing at least five more pieces of clothing than we've seen on him in a while, Justin gave his most soulful hat-tip in front of a very swanky woodgrain backdrop. He accessorized with a tasteful chain-link bracelet, and also an electric fireplace.
Are you ready to see Snooki and JWoww back on your TVs? While their eponymous show is not back yet, they will back on your screen soon on an episode of Project Runway: All Stars. The duo will act as guest judges on the show, so we figured we'd take a look back at some of the fashions they may favor, judging wise. There's no word yet on what the challenge was for the contestants, but chances are if they included leopard print or one-sleeve dresses, Snooki and JWoww would vote to keep 'em. Check out a few of the styles they're well-versed in below!

Snooki and JWoww have a widely documented love of leopard print. (And we have a widely documented love of their love of leopard print. Meta!)
Last night on Total Ariana Live, the singer announced that she'll be performing at this year's VMAs. Upon learning the news, our first thought was: YAAS! Our second thought was: What will she wear?!
Though she's no stranger to the spotlight, the former Nickelodeon star has only been making her own music for a year—but what a year it's been! Since performing at the VMAs pre-show last year, Ariana has dropped hit after hit and taken the stage at basically every important event ever. We don't know what's skyrocketed the most in the last 12-ish months—her fame or her style.
Below are a few of our fave looks from Ariana's performances–peep them and then join us in guessing what she'll wear on August 24!

When Ariana dropped "Problem," her destined-to-be song of the summer, she debuted a new swingin' '60s look that appears to take a page from Nancy Sinatra.
