Happy Key Day, Beliebers! Today is the day
you we can finally lay our grubby paws on Justin Bieber's newest, most *achem* adult perfume to date. If you were following the countdown, you were probably glued to the scent-specific justinbieberthekey.com URL at promptly noon EST today, only to be met with a static image accompanied by a forlorn tweet from Biebsy himself, assuring fans there was more to come from The Key today. Scooter Braun, the man behind the Bieber, also encouraged peeps to "stay tuned to that site," so naturally, we obliged. And accordingly, we were rewarded.
Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus love Ashish combination pants.

Combination pants: they're like the garment version of Batman villain Two-Face (née Harvey Dent), but you know, not evil. Courtesy of MTV Style fave Ashish, they're the perfect outfit solve for, "Which of these looks better with this top?" because well, you just wear them both. AND it looks like they're new wardrobe staples for Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus.

For as much chatter as Mariah Carey gets for being a "diva," the
woman legend doesn't let anything stop her from putting on a SHOW. Not an early morning wardrobe malfunction and certainly not a dislocated shoulder. Mimi kept her previously scheduled performance for the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Charity Concert this weekend, swanning onto the stage in all her slinky, sparkly evening gowned glory. True to form, the "#Beautiful" singer had outfit changes. And more than that, she had a slew of glamorous sling options.
Kanye West in his capsule collection for A.P.C.
After months of accelerated hype, this past weekend we were finally able to set eyes on Kanye West's capsule collection for A.P.C. As promised when the French fashion house officially confirmed the high profile collaboration last week, the collection hit A.P.C.'s international web stores yesterday morning. In line with the descriptions from Ye's W magazine interview, Yeezy and A.P.C. founder Jean Touitou created a concise range of one short-sleeved sweatshirt, one long-sleeved sweatshirt in blue and dark navy, one t-shirt in navy and white, and one pair of jeans in stonewash and indigo.

ZOMG, y'all. Maybe it's just a product of the East Coast's patented humid heat. Maybe I'm just a weather wuss. But MAN, is it just me or is this one of the hottest summers in a minute?? IDK about you, but for me, nothing puts a damper on a cute outfit (literally and figuratively) quite like excessive sweating. Thankfully, though, sweltering heat is a great excuse to partake in one of my all-time favorite foods: ICE CREAM. Which brings us to this week's Food Friday shopping exercise. We've rounded up the best ice cream-themed clothes, accessories, and beauty items pon de web and wrapped them up in this here little internet package for your Friday shopping enjoyment. Enjoy!
Siva Kaneswaran for Next Models.

Holy WHAT. ?!?? I know we basically already did this little song-and-dance when The Wanted's Siva Kaneswaran was initially signed to Next Models, but WOWOWOW. Are you seeing what I'm seeing? Listen, the first round of photos of Siva that the agency used for the announcement were great. Blue Steel and bow ties. A manicured mane befitting of his boy band heartthrob status and a whole lot of wearing suiting really, really well. But the latest set of Next Models' Siva snaps? WOO! *fans self with right hand* This is some high fashion street goth REALNESS. Mama like.
Demi Lovato for "Fashion" Canada.

Welp, that Just Cavalli dress is one way to turn heads on newsstands! AMIRITE? Thank you, FASHION magazine, for this gorgeous cover snap of our girl Demi Lovato. D pops off the page in this tropical, multi-patterned bodycon dress with almost-peplum details at the waist. Her hair is dark, dating the shoot to at least pre-May of this year, and her makeup (done by Mai Quynh) is natural and fresh-faced save a boldly kohl-lined cat eye and an immaculately sculpted brow. Pairing a dress THAT vibrant with a more subdued beauty look seems like the right balance. It ALSO gives you enough outfit cap room to add giant gobstopper-sized drop Mawi earrings. *WINK*
I think it's finally safe to say that, when it comes to Justin Bieber's newest fragrance The Key, you can forget everything you knew about JB's previous perfumes. Forget the Peter Pan references and ice cream sundaes of Someday. Forget the acoustic guitar serenades, poolside texts, and popcorn fights of Girlfriend and its first-person perspective commercial. This is The Key, the new fragrance for her. We sort of emptily joked about the sexy verbage of the OG Key press release—senses "awakening," "bursting," "blooming," "sensual musks," and "notes of vanilla that will leave you dreaming for more"—but the more we see from The Key's campaign, the more we're realizing that we weren't that far off.
Would you wear these Linda Farrow x Walter Van Beirendonck sunglasses?

Heart-shaped sunglasses, or rather, sunglasses with heart-shaped lenses and frames are by no means ground-breaking. While we're unsure of the precise origins of the style, we know they extend at least as far back as 1962 and Stanley Kubrick's Lolita. The movie's iconic poster features the title character peering over top of a pair of red sweetheart sunnies. Since then, they've been adopted, updated, rendered frameless, over-sized, and even given a shutter shades version, but until now, have never looked quite like this. Instead of each lens being cut into the shape of a heart—creating the illusion of a hearts-for-eyes look—these Linda Farrow x Walter Van Beirendonck specs put two (colored AND mirrored!) lenses together to make one heart. Across your entire face.
Beyonce for "Flaunt" magazine.

Being that the woman has been on a MASSIVE international tour for the past three months, we're not surprised that we've experienced a kind of Beyonce editorial spread drought. That is, until now. Brace yourselves, Beyhive. Flaunt Magazine has unveiled its latest issue and guess who's gracing the cover? QUEEN BEY, DUH. Also, umm, IDK if you, erm, noticed, but... it looks like she's just wearing glitter. As in, no clothes, only glitter. *GULP*
