• Taylor Swift announced her new fragrance, Taylor By Taylor Swift. Unlike her two previous scents, the pop star promises her namesake perfume will reflect more of her own personality.

• Miley Cyrus looked amazing in a pair of Chanel suspenders, and they looked awfully familiar. Why? Because Rihanna had worn them before, of course!

• We're so excited for Miley's return to music, and her video for "Ashtrays and Heartbreaks" with Snoop Lion was the perfect appetizer before she drops her single next week!

• Gorgy Demi Lovato always looks beautiful, and we love her demure Nylon Magazine look.

• Adam Lambert went 'Ali Baba Superstar' for the Life Ball! And it was completely and utterly fabulous.

There are so many things to look forward to about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but of course we're most focused on the COSTUMES, and in particular, the rich, eccentric fashion of the Capitol. We're not alone in that, and to quench our desperate thirst for more peeks at the opulent amazingness that are the Capitol costumes, the filmmakers have relaunched their Capitol Couture Tumblr—this time with more info than ever! The site, which will post a new collection of content, or issue, every season, features character profiles, guides to Capitol fashion, and designer profiles—just to name a few things on this rich site. (Be warned: You really can just explore for hours.) We showed you the site's Capitol portraits, but at the time we had no idea how much more Capitol fashion we would be getting! As you know, costume designer Trish Summerville is pulling the looks for the Capitol straight from the runway, and so there's A LOT for us to look forward to. So far we know that the designer has pulled everyone from Alexander McQueen to Tex Saverio and, in the inaugural issue of Capitol Couture Issue One: Chroma Nouveau, there's even an interview with Nicholas K.

Kanye West Yeezy 2

Could these sneakers be yours someday?

Remember how we mentioned that Kanye West's electrifying performance on Saturday Night Live might also be a subtle debut for a new colorway of his Nike Air Yeezy 2 sneaker? Just in case you were too distracted by the incredible performances, let us refresh your memory: after his debut of "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead" on the famous late night show, Kanye enthusiasts began to, as we do, unpack his performance look. All-black everything gave way to a pair of bright red kicks that... wait a second, those are Yeezy 2s! But we've never seen the all-red colorway before! And thus, yet another Yeezus-related mystery was born. Today, sneaker heads around the world are abuzz with speculation that the great and powerful Ye may be planning to play rap game Willy Wonka in 1000 copies of his new album, Yeezus, by giving those lucky fans a chance to purchase the shoes. Intrepid British sneaker collector/blogger Jsus Sneaks got his hands on a pair of the all-red kicks, which are pictured complete with the signature Yeezy falcon head and an embossed box (we think), stamped with "June 18, 2013" and an individual number. We think we see where this is going.

Mel Ottenberg and Pharrell join the cast of 'Styled To Rock'.

If anyone is going to discover the next ground-breaking designer, it's gonna be Rihanna. The pop megastar (and designer herself!) is always at the razor's edge of every trend, thanks largely to her impeccable taste and the assistance of her brilliant stylist Mel Ottenberg. There have been countless snaps given to Ottenberg and Ri's co-designer Adam Selman, so it's no surprise that Ri recruited one of the all-stars to serve on the star-studded panel of her Style Media show, Styled To Rock, alongside Pharrell and Erin Wasson. We can imagine that Adam is super busy, you know, working on Rihanna's River Island line and designing her tour costumes, but whatever the reason might be, it will be Mel who we'll see on the new season of Styled, selecting, out of a group of 12 up-and-coming designers, the opportunity to style some of the biggest stars in Hollywood and prove that they're fashion's next big thing. Of her relationship with Mel, Rihanna said, "Mel and I have such a similar aesthetic. It’s as if he can read my mind sometimes... I love his attention to detail and all the research he does for every look. He is more than a stylist. He is an artist.”

Kelly Osbourne on the July issue of 'Cosmopolitan.'
Photo: 'Cosmopolitan'

Whew, is it hot in here or just Cosmopolitan's July cover? The all pink and red issue features a super smiley Kelly Osbourne mixing prints and purple hair in a PERFECT vision of summer fun. Before we get into the ADORABLE interior shots (which feature Kelly's real life romance Matthew Mosshart), let's dive a little deeper into this cover, shall we? Kelly has been rocking technicolor hair since way before it was a huge trend, and we're LOVING her current lavender 'do. It's often a risk to try and match one's hair and lipstick, but Kelly manages it wonderfully with an electric pink hue that has just enough contrast from her locks not to look too matchy-matchy. She pairs this bright beauty look with a navy and yellow polka dot satin bustier peeking out from under (another!) polka dot button down, tied at the waist (which is one of our personal fave styling tricks for the warm weather). Two types of polka dots are just the beginning though, as Kelly pairs the two tops with a graphic black and blue striped pencil skirt. The pin-up inspired look might be a little much for everyday (unless you're Rihanna, obvs, and can get away with not buttoning your shirt on the regs), but we're loving the mix of patterns and prints.

You already know that a highpoint of our week here at Style is when we get to see what our favorite Animal is up to on Ke$ha's My Crazy Beautiful Life, and, sadly, the docu-series comes to an end tonight. We can't be THAT sad, however, because Ke$ha and her Animals are taking over MTV tonight, and in addition to the show finale, will also be premiering the MUCH anticipated video for "Crazy Kids." We first caught a glimpse of her Brooke Candy channeling cornrows and pastel nail art from some behind-the-scenes shots on her Instagram, and the sneak peek video is really just increasing our excitement. We get to see her Insta-ed outfit in action in the preview, as she dances around in enormous gold bamboo hoops, rings all over her fingers and 40 ounces of glittery something featured prominently. The video premieres on MTV tonight at 7:53 pm EST, to be followed by "MTV First: Ke$ha," on kesha.mtv.com. Got a question for Ke$ha? Tweet it with the hashtag #AskKesha and she may just give you the answer live!

Taylor Swift talks style with Keds.
Photo: Keds

Our go-to makeup look, a classic cat eye and a bright lip, might seem basic, but let us tell you, it has taken some time to master. Besides finding the right colors, the perfect applicator, picking liquid or gel, it's just plain HARD to do your makeup sometimes. You know who understands? Taylor Swift. In the second installment of her style video series for Keds, Tay talks all things style, but perhaps most interestingly she admits that she hasn't always known how to do her makeup, either. "I’ve had a lot of failed make-up looks that I would try in school before I learned how to do the line right! And sometimes I get it wrong still," she says in the video. The pop star continues, "I like the cat eyeliner a lot. It’s all about getting the right angle and my one tip for how to do it right is to take the angle and direction your bottom lash line is going and follow that angle up. If I’m drawing a really fine line, I like liquid eyeliner pens. You have to get really close to your lash line.” Good advice, indeed!

In case you didn't hear us screaming it at the top of our lungs, SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE! Well, almost. While some of us might be having a little bit of a hard time acclimating to the heat (and how bad our hair looks in the humidity, yikes), there's no denying that life is better when you can throw your tights into storage and prance around in a floaty little dress. Memorial Day weekend marks the official start of summer Fridays, beach weekends, and general laid back-ess, and naturally you're going to want to dress thematically. What's our favorite long weekend tradition? BBQs, OBVIOUSLY! Hotdogs, hamburgers, lemonade, the taste of charcoal on our tongues? Heaven. The summer is full of opportunities for grilling, but there's something so special about the first time you break out the propane tank, you know? You've already got your BBQ-themed nail art on lock, so throw on your hamburger sneaks, get that hot dog dress out of storage and let's get cookin'!

Daft Punk stan swag.
Photo: Etsy/Society6

Bless whoever invented headphones for making it possible for us to listen to Daft Punk's "Instant Crush" enough times to drive a sane person crazy over the past week or so. The robots released Random Access Memories, their guest-filled, jam-packed mega album, to flurries of critical praise this week, and we have to say, we've become totally caught up in the Daft Punk fever. Here's the thing, though: those helmets really don't do anything for our hair. Like, we get it, you want to be mysterious, but a girl's gotta keep her 'do under control, know what we're saying? How are we supposed to keep our tonsorial game on point while also fanning out to the fullest while dancing around to the Daft Punk/Pharrell collab "Get Lucky" in our living rooms (see also: everywhere)? Behold, the glory of the internet! From the subtle to the totally over the top, there are myriad ways to show the world you're a Daft Punk fan, whether it be with a poster, a bracelet, or a key chain.

Of course our first stop was Etsy, where we found what is perhaps our favorite piece of Daft Punk swag. This Italian charm link bracelet ($15.00) is a subtle way to add a little disco to your arm party without having to make TOO much of a commitment. On the jewelry tip, you can also wear the signature helmets proximate to your head, with a pair of silver helmet inspired earrings ($15.99). If jewelry isn't your thing, you can keep the robots close to home with a helmet key chain ($15.46), or have them hanging IN your home with a letterpress poster ($13.00). If you love the RAM album art as much as we do, you can carry the polygon tote ($22.00) around wherever you go, or, perhaps even better yet, you can REALLY prove your obsession with the Daft Deco iPhone case ($35.00).

How do you like to show the world that you're a Daft Punk stan?

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