Can we be honest for a sec? We basically die and are reborn each time Rihanna plays dress up. In the spirit of the incomparable Madge (that's Madonna for you youngins), Rihanna reinvents herself more often than most people change clothes. Each time she does, we just HAVE to take a minute out of our increasingly busy schedules to glorify and dissect the Bajan beauty's new look. And no, we are not ashamed. For her new album, Talk That Talk, Ri Ri has completely transformed into a bad-ass, grunge-loving, rocker chick! We drool over each photograph we see of the pop princess in combat boots, faded jeans, pin curls, and a FIERCE poker face. And just when we thought we had obsessed more than humanly possible, we got a glimpse at a behind-the-scenes video for her latest song, "You Da One."

Breaking: Snooki is a bona fide fashionista, y'all. The shortest member of the Jersey Shore clan has proved she can go from tanned, animal print-obsessed party girl to sophisticated vixen at the drop of the hat. And umm, we're taking notes.
Not a day goes by in pop culture when an engagement (Britney, bish!) or divorce (sorry, Kobe) isn't announced. Isn't love grand? While a breakup is enough to bring a tear to our eyes and lead to nights binging on ice cream and playing Adele on repeat, we LOOOVE to hear a man got on one knee and proposed to our fave pop princesses. And 2011 was the perfect year to make a relationship OFFIC with STAHS like Kim Kardashian, Anne Hathaway, and (GASP) the one and only Brit Brit sporting new bling. Of course, the relationship is most important (cough, Kim Kardashian), but we won't be mad if he puts a ring on it with a suurrrious, show-stopping sparkler. So, let's see whose rock shines the brightest, shall we?

Newsflash: Miss Britney is a woman with class. She's all grown up and ready for real love, hence her understated Neil Lane ring of 4 carats from her former agent Jason Trawick. Sure we've never seen a celeb with a ring this small, but we've also never seen Brit more in love. And that's what's most important anyway...right? RIGHT?
Daphne Guinness in Monaco on Oct. 20.

Could a makeup line inspired by PIGEON BLOOD get any odder? Of course—when the creator is beer heiress Daphne Guinness. The latest MAC collaborator, who harbors a penchant for outrageous fashions, also has a predilection for experimenting with makeup. No, we're not talking about blue lipstick or printed lip tattoos (that's SOOO two weeks ago), Daphne gets inventive by using nail polish... as her lipstick. Yes, you read that right.
Nail polish is the new lipstick, according to Daphne who is apparently a GENIUS when it comes to product development. I mean, what a great way to put all that neon nail polish collecting dust in your bathroom drawer to use! And if you bought too much paint for your living room wall, you can totes use that as makeup too. Paint is also a sporadic part of Guinness' beauty regimen. "Sometimes I use paint. Yesterday, I was wearing nail polish as lipstick," she tells Stylelist. "It's just experiment after experiment." Excuse us, we're in awe. Have you met anyone as FIERCE? Naturally, Guinness' brazen approach to makeup has us dreaming up innovative ways to use her new MAC collection. Lipstick as eyeshadow? Blush as hair dye? Why not? That's what ALL the cool heiresses do.
Billionaire Girls Club.

Confession: Everyone at MTV Style is kind of OBSESSED with Pharrell Williams. The N.E.R.D. frontman epitomizes the kind of effortless panache we live for over here! Whether he's rocking Chanel and a white tee or cutoffs and a military hat, it's clear he doesn't care what anyone thinks, and that's sososo cool. In fact, his penchant for setting trends with his UH-mazing Billionaire Boys Club designs has spawned a million Faux-rells who dress just like he does. (Three words: Trucker. Hat. Craze.) But what about the girls? Why can't we give OUR wardrobes the Pharrell makeover? For so long, we eagerly awaited our chance to rock jersey tanks, hoodies, and tees with super cool graphic logos and finally, our day has come. Billionaire Girls Club is officially here. *back flips*
Many things come to mind when one thinks of Snookalicious: spray tans, smooshing, Crocodilly, pickles, cats—we could go on for DAYYSSS. Snooki stans, brace yourselves: All of her various predilections (well, at least tans, workouts, and cats) collided in this MONSTROUSLY EPIC photo she just released on Facebook. In the RIDIC picture, which shows Snookems behind-the-scenes at a photo shoot, she WERQUES her newly svelte frame (tanned to glorious orange perfection) in a shiny, pink one-piece swimsuit that is, um, a wee bit revealing.
Versace for H&M's 2012 Cruise Collection.

All right, we're taking a poll. Raise your hand if you went certifiably BANANAS over the first Versace for H&M collection. DUH! Everyone did. We ogled each piece in the lookbook, stalked celebs wearing the clothes (yeah, we're talking about you too, Kanye!) and ran like crazed animals into H&M to buy a leopard/neon/printed jacket for ourselves. We also quite possibly (OK, totally) set up a tent somewhere near Fifth Avenue and froze in the cold for fashion. For hours. And now that we've FINALLY recovered from our retail frenzy-induced hangover, H&M has announced a second collection with Versace. SQUEAL. It's so epic, so magical, so full of sartorial brilliance that you must stop what you're doing and take a look. Like, NOW.

You can see some strange things on the interwebs, y'all! Babies who stop crying when you play Biggie Smalls, a woman with mile-long fingernails, your celeb guy crush parading around in a onesie, but a male model in a push-up bra who looks GOOD, like Victoria's Secret catalog GOOD, tops them ALL!!
To be fair, androgynous model Andrej Pejic is the most undeniably GAWGUS man we've ever laid eyes on (those cheekbones are what the Zoolander stare was MADE for!), and his lithe frame could easily double as a woman's since most models' bra cups don't exactly runneth over. Pejic's breasts, though, don't even exist. (PROOF!) And Hema's mega push-up bra transformed them into a VA-VA-VOOM moment, or at least a full A cup. Yeah, we're going to need five of those.

Attention all other pop culture couples: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez could possibly be the best matchup of all time, of all TIME!!!! (Kanye West voice). No matter what your opinion of Selieber, you have to admit they're pretty freaking cute. And the IDEA of these two adorable STAHS attending a wedding together? That's right up there with the Jay-oncé baby announcement and the Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake reunion we've been planning in our heads. Yes, Belieber were spotted getting their romance on in Los Cabos and folks, THIS is how you attend a wedding in style!
Lily Collins in a BCBG lace dress in L.A. on Dec. 7.

I know what you're thinking. From her FABTASTIC thick brows to her flawless wavy hair, Lily Collins couldn't BE any more adorable. Like, she's so sweet and innocent and stylish that your head is going to explode from the sheer cuteness of it all. Well, she's managed to take the ADORBS look to new, unprecedented levels in a blue lace BCBG dress, which you can snatch up yourself for $298. Lace is obviously the fabric du jour (see Lady Gaga's last, what, 10 see-through outfits?) but Lily makes it youthful, trendy, and fun because she's THAT fash-mazing. Tear. Dad Phil Collins has gotta be proud.
