A few things before we jump into the JEANS. Have you heard about The Normal Heart yet? It's HBO's forthcoming original film about HIV/AIDS awareness in the '80s, based off the popular play of the same name and stars Julia Roberts, Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, and Taylor Kitsch. If you've watched at least 15 minutes of Friday Night Lights in your lifetime, you are probably in love with
Tim Riggins Taylor Kitsch. Me too. So why am I just finding out that the CROTCH of his jeans for The Normal Heart needed to be "ELONGATED"?!???!?!???!???!? *Googles film's premiere date, clears out schedule for May 25, gives many thanks that the following day is a holiday, allowing for a full 24 hours of recovery*

Ride-or-die Smilers already know, but if you aren't up in Twitter search, looking for the latest update on Miley Cyrus' Bangerz Tour every week, you're missing out on an always changing and growing and constantly entertaining pop show. Along with a grip of glittering new designer togs cycling in week after week, Miles changes up her acoustic set almost every show to keep the variety. With less than a month left of the U.S. leg of her tour, it seems there are still a few surprises up Miley's sleeve. We were lucky enough to catch up with Diane Martel, the tour's creative director and the "We Can't Stop" music director, to get the inside scoop on the weird and wonderful world of Bangerz.
Do you know what today is? It's the third of April. What significance does this date have (other than being two days after April Fools' Day)? It's the anniversary (seventh, to be exact) of the release of Beyonce's B'Day Anthology Video Album, King Bey's first video album. *SKRRRRRRRRT* Yes, internetlings. Bey stans likely didn't forget, but for the rest of y'all, there actually was a video album that predates Beyonce's eponymous "visual album" released late last year (December 2013). Now, technically, Beyonce the album, is still the first of its kind since the B'Day Anthology was released seven months AFTER the intial audio album dropped in September 2006. BUT, the fact that it exists at all is (A) awesome, and (B) a clear indication that Bey's been thinking about this concept for a very long time. In honor of B'Day's, well, b-day, here are all of the music-video wardrobe GIFs you'll ever need. Now, go on and watch Yonce writhe in all-leopard for "Kitty Kat," shake her derriere in
Dereon silver sequins for "Get Me Bodied," and tell that low-life to put everything he owns to the left, to the left, over and over (and over)!

Lady Gaga has been hitting the town a TON recently—both for her history-making Roseland Ballroom residency and her 28th birthday. More Lady Gaga appearances means more Lady Gaga outfits. And more Lady Gaga outfits mean *drumrollllll* more installments of fashion math to break them down into simpler, more-digestible parts for the less ARTPOP-inclined! This round includes one custom Diane von Furstenberg catsuit, several platform booties, and a TON of House of Flora headgear and eyewear. Enjoy!

Sure, the Oscars at the beginning of the month brought an end to traditional awards season, but Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards usher in the 2014 spring/summer season—one marked by shorts and miniskirts, bright colors, and beachy waves. The temperatures might still be lurking in the high 40s on the northern east coast, but the PYTs on the KCAs orange carpet are helping us get inspired for warmer weather.

Nick girl Ariana Grande paid homage to the network with a little orange shift dress. Rather than exactly matching the carpet (and the awards blimps!), the latter half of "Sam & Cat" opted for a lighter tangerine. Her dress wasn't the only part of her outfit repping for Nickelodeon: Her quilted Chanel purse, which she tweeted a closer picture of, was customized with iconic Nick cartoon characters from Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Catdog, and Aaahh!!! Real Monsters.
A scene from B*A*P*S.

If you've never seen B*A*P*S, do yourself a favor and get acquainted with it right now. I know it has an abyssmal 13% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but when was the last time you saw Halle Berry dance like that??? (Yes, that's Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry in the above orange latex jumpsuit.) Ambling plot lines and whatever/meh dialogue notwithstanding, the costume design in this movie is exemplary and 100% resonates with present-day trends. Gobs of gold, denim on denim, crop tops, and so much more. (Fun Fact: Ruth E. Carter, the B*A*P*S costume designer, is also responsible for the wardrobe in Do The Right Thing, Amistad, Love & Basketball, and a slew of other beloved films.) Thus, we're THAT much more stoked to celebrate B*A*P*S' anniversary (the film came out on this day in 1997). In honor of the film's 17th birthday, we're presenting you with a TON of GIFs to relive the movie's ATL-to-Beverly Hills style over and over (and over and over).
MEMES ON CLOTHES. BRILLIANT.

Memes: You know 'em, you love 'em, and now, thanks to the M.O.C. Brand, you can wear a bunch of them on your chest (or head, if you so choose). The Memes on Clothes Brand has a straightforward proposition—put memes on clothes—but they execute it in such a simple, beautiful way. Also, they operate with lightning quickness, much like the speed of internet memes themselves. We cover these dudes' work a ton, but finally sat them down to chat about their brand's origin story and try and put more of a face to the dudes behind the GENIUS Drake Yolo Polo. Peep the conversation after the jump!
