Guys, sometimes the internet is so awesome we can barely handle it. While doing our typical Manicure Monday research, we stumbled upon Polish All The Nails' blog, and they tipped us off (heh) to a super-easy-yet-totally-amazing way to create DIY 3D cube nail art—by using only glitter! OK, we know this sounds insane, but stick with us here. First, you need to get your hands on some diamond-shaped glitter (like this!), and the more colors you have, the better. Then, paint your nails a bold base color and wait for your fingers to dry. Once you're set, use tweezers to place three pieces of glitter together in the shape of a cube. You can keep it simple with just a single square along the cuticle or go totally cube crazy and do the entire nail! Honestly, we're obsessed with either look, especially because it's sparkly too. *high fives entire world*
Katy Perry and her Killer Queen fragrance.

It's been more than two months since we discovered/freaked out about Katy Perry's latest fragrance, Killer Queen, but to be totally honest, we still don't really, well, know much about it. Sure, we got to peep the bold red bottle and KP rocking some killer (heh) Thom Browne duds at the launch party, but we got no insight into the inspiration behind her third fragrance, what it smells like, or, heck, when it's gonna hit stores! Luckily, WWD caught up with the singer to get all the deets on her latest perfume, and we have some vital nuggets of info to share with y'all! Check 'em out below.
Welp, it's me again—your resident cat lady reporting for duty. Whenever I spot any cat-themed piece of clothing, I scour the internetz to share my finds with y'all. So when I stumbled upon this Instagram photo of Ciara wearing a snapback with CAT EARS on it, I basically flipped my lid (heh). Basically, this is what I found: it's made by New York-based brand Badacious, and according to their product description, it's actually a Batman-themed cap. (It says "Gotham" on the other side.) While it's currently sold out on their site, you can (luckily!) swipe it up from Patricia Field right this second. Check out what it looks like from the front below! #WERK
Dang, y'all—between Rihanna's River Island clothing line, MAC makeup collection, and, um, WORLD TOUR, we're not even sure how she has time to breathe, let alone create a brand new perfume. Today RiRi announced her latest scent, Rogue, which will hit Macy’s, Dillard’s and Belk in September. This is her fourth fragrance (following Nude, Rebelle and Reb'l Fleur), which she told WWD has "a flirty, sensual Oriental" scent that combines lemon blossom, jasmine, rose, plum, patchouli, and vanilla—just to name a few.
Lady Gaga in New York on July 11.

We have NOT had enough Lady Gaga in our lives as of late. Sure, we spotted her at the Gay Pride Rally last week, but between her cancelled tour and suspiciously shutdown Twitter, we've been seriously thirsty for some Mother Monster sightings. Luckily, our prayers have been answered--Lady Gaga was spotted right here in NYC (!!!) yesterday looking fiercer than we've ever seen her before. She gave the ultimate "F you" to the unrelenting humidity (SO. HOT.) by ditching a T-shirt all together! She sported just a lacy black bra with a matching black mini skirt, killer stiletto platform booties, oversized sunnies and, well, not much else.
We <3 the internetz.

Welp, it doesn't get more meta than this, friends. Every week when dive into the world of fan merch (or "Stan Swag," as we so lovingly call it), we usually find the coolest duds to show off our Justin/Miley/Selena/Kanye obsessions, but when it REALLY comes down to it, there's something we love even more than all those celebs combined—the internet, y'all. Without it we'd be, well, jobless for one, but also we wouldn't get all those titillating daily tweets/Instagram photos/Vines straight from [INSERT YOUR FAVORITE CELEB HERE]'s phone and without it, we might die. OK, that's a bit dramatic, but seriously, if we were on a deserted island and someone asked us to choose between WiFi and food, we'd probably choose WiFi. (Here's hoping Seamless delivers by boat...)
Jared Leto for 'BULLETT' magazine.

Dang, Jared Leto has been killing it as of late. Between his cotton candy pink-colored bob on the cover of Candy and his high-fashion spread for Mr. Porter, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman is constantly surprising us with his transformative (and inspiring!) style. Today, he added another magazine to his ever-growing collection by doing a super artsy shoot with BULLETT, and we're—GULP—loving it a bit too much. Basically, Jared is juxtaposed against some seriously '80s backgrounds including spray-painted drywall, a hot pink, photo-covered tarp and, um, garbage bags? Yeah, garbage bags. In his first look, we peep Jared rocking his signature stubble and baby bun in a graphic black and white John Galliano blazer and matching shirt. In another shot, he gets little kookier in a Muppet-inspired (à la Rihanna?) fuzzy teal Paul Smith sweater with a silver Siki Im apron (!!!), Dior Homme shirt, white Calvin Klein trousers, Jared's own checkered socks and metallic Comme des Garçons oxfords.
Kristen Bell on set of the 'Veronica Mars Movie'.
Marshmallows, we hope you're sitting down because we've got some serious Veronica Mars fashion info up our sleeves. In case you missed it (LOL, you didn't), we peeped the first-ever images straight from the set a couple weeks ago and obsessed over Veronica's style evolution from a baby-tee wearin' teen to edgy college student to a casual-cool lawyer (let’s not go down the wormhole of why she’s holding hands with Piz, OK?) in what we assume is New York with her Mackage trench coat and sensible workwear get-up. But thanks to photos that debuted on EW last week from a shoot day at the Santa Monica Pier (as pictured above), we got a peek at scenes with Ken Marino and Kristen Bell. Seeing Vinnie automatically made us channel his version of Hall and Oates' "Private Eyes", but we couldn't keep our eyes off--GASP--the return of her signature studded bag?!
Nicki Minaj in the August issue of 'Marie Claire'.

We'll be honest—we never get tired of seeing Nicki Minaj on magazine covers. Whether she channels a bedazzled Barbie or rocks an au naturel look, Nicki always manages to surprise us with something new. Today, she did just that. Marie Claire unveiled their August cover and it features—you guessed it—the Barbz herself! This time she channeled a punk couture look (inspired by this year's Met Gala, perhaps?), which mixed Mohawks with high-end duds. In one ensemble, Nicki straight-up KILLED. IT. in a skin-tight, perforated LaQuan Smith bodysuit, which she accessorized with a giant Mohawk headpiece and statement rings. For her beauty look, she sported stick-straight platinum strands with an exaggerated cat eye, matte red lip, and light pink tips. #WERK
