We've had M.I.A.'s "Bring the Noize" music video on repeat ever since it premiered last week, and, um, it's obvious as to why. Insane beats + infinite incredible looks + a badass beauty game = a total dream come true. Between M.I.A.'s intricate braided 'do and pink coif, you'd think her hair was the star of the show, but we just couldn't peel our eyes away from her decked-out nails. Basically, no matter how many times we paused it to get a closer look, we still weren't sure what was happening on her digits. Luckily, London-based nail artist Sophie Harris-Greenslade (who did M.I.A.'s nails for the video shoot) tipped us off to the fact that her gold mani is super easy to cop for yourself, as in, YOU CAN BUY IT.
Rihanna working on her fall River Island collection.
Rihanna wastes no time, y'all. Right after she debuted her spring River Island collection at London Fashion Week, she was already hard at work creating her fall line with Adam Selman. So far, we've only peeped a single image of the twosome designing some killer new pieces in April, but today River Island released a behind-the-scenes video of Rihanna wearing some of her yet-to-be-released threads, and we are FREAKING. OUT. Basically, we are seeing tons of beanies, stiletto booties and backpacks in the accessories department, and lots of varsity jackets, cropped sweaters, printed tees and bomb ass winter staples for the clothing. One thing we noticed overall: there's gonna be a HECK of a lot of camo print in this collection.
Taylor Swift and her fall Keds collection.

It feels like just yesterday we were drooling over Taylor Swift's super adorbs summer Keds sneaker collection, but this week she released her fall-ready line, and suddenly we're really excited for the colder days ahead. She brought back some of the same polka dot and floral motifs from before, but added an extra fresh spin on each shoe design. First up, T Swift added a layer of vintage white lace to her signature red sneaks for a girly spin on the classic show. Word on the street (OK, fine, product description) is that the Champion Vintage Lace sneaker ($50) was modeled after one of her favorite frocks. Even cooler--these shoes also come in a black on black version.

We're onto you, Ke$ha. She just CAN'T stop posting Instagram shots of rings, necklaces and earrings all credited to a Kesha Rose by Charles Albert collection, but we literally have no details about pricing/where to buy/basically anything at all. What we DO know is that K-Money is launching some seriously stylish baubles that we need to get our hands on ASAP. In one photo, she shows off some over-sized turquoise and black stone rings with a gorge flower crown and silver chain necklace, and, in another, a gold tooth pendant that Ke$ha says is—gasp—modeled after one of her fan's canines. We're... not even sure how she got that to happen? *shrugs*
We can't say we're surprised that Avril Lavigne got married in a black wedding dress—in fact, we think it's quite fitting for the queen of punk rock. On July 1 (Canada Day!), she wed Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger in an intimate castle (!!!) ceremony in the south of France. Hello! Canada magazine debuted the first photos from the big day, which featured Avril in a strapless, black sweetheart Monique Lhuillier tulle gown with a black bouquet of roses and a diamond headband. She sported her signature smudgy black eye shadow with nude lips and effortless beachy blonde waves.
If you aren't already in the Fourth of July spirit, Taylor Swift's new fragrance campaign might do just the trick. She released a video yesterday for her new, more sophisticated scent (appropriately named Taylor by Taylor Swift), which features Tay Tay lighting some sparklers, hanging out in convertibles with her friends, trying on old timey hats, chilling in bathtubs full clothed, and doing, well, things that 20-something girls do in the summer. The 30-second clip, which shows multiple Instagram-inspired shots over the "Starlight" track from her Red album, is just the first part in a bigger commercial series roll-out. OooOOhh!
Robert Pattinson going to see Beyonce in L.A. on July 1.

Sometimes the stars align so perfectly, it's hard not to just stop everything you're doing, sit back, and think about how beautiful this big ol' world is. Basically, we're referring to Robert Pattinson, and how we peeped a pic of him going into Beyonce's The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour last night wearing a vintage MTV jacket. Let that digest for a minute: Robert Pattinson. Beyonce. MTV jacket. It's like the universe took our three most favorite things of all time and rolled them up in one beautifully-packaged moment. :') RPattz sported his red, black and white leather sleeve varsity jacket with a plain white crew neck tee, relaxed jeans, and backward snapback hat.
Isaac and Scott.
We just can't stop talking about the dudes on Teen Wolf. Sure, Lydia and Allison are constantly bringing their stylish sensibilities to the show, but lately the guys have been sartorially slaying it. In tonight's episode, Scott and Isaac looked particularly fashionable in their super badass motorcycle-inspired ensembles. ME-OW.
Isaac and Scott.
Isaac sported a gray INC V-neck tee with a killer leather G-Star jacket, black G-Star jeans, and Kenneth Cole boots, while Scott wore a black Mossimo V-neck tee with Guess jeans, RVCA jacket, and lace-up G-Star boots. Together, they looked equally bold and badass as they did sleek and chic, and we LOVE that. Also, their smizing is outta control in this photo. *dies*
Dudes, the Fourth of July is only a few days away, and if you're a procrastinator (like us!), you probably haven't solidified your all-American ensemble just yet. Luckily, if you have a pair of blue jeans and, um, hands, you're halfway there! We rounded up some red, white and blue nautical manicures that'll be PERFECT come Thursday, no matter what you wear. Sure, you can do the same ol' American flag steez, but we thought a set of throwback sailor-inspired nails would be a cooler (and less obvious) way to celebrate the big day. We found 9 designs that vary in difficulty and include everything from stripes and polka dots to ropes and anchors. Peep the manis below and get painting!
Nicki Minaj at the 2013 BET Awards in L.A. on June 30.

If there's one person that took over tonight's BET Awards, it definitely had to be Ms. Nicki Minaj. Sure, she might've skipped the red carpet, but she managed to switch up her ensemble three (!!!) times during the show. Her first outfit was a decked OUT bustier complete with rhinestones, zipper detailing and a garter belt. She paired this strapless top with simple black skinnies, pointy silver pumps, and bright red stiletto nails. She managed to keep the same, sleek platinum bob throughout each outfit change, which we LOVE.
