Little Mix's Salute Tour kicks off in the UK next week and the girls have suggested that everyone come dressed as a "Salute Warrior." They're not the first musicians to request their audiences wear similar things–Lady Gaga had her swine-fest dress code–but Little Mix may be the first to actually compile inspirational images on a Pinterest board.

The band shared their outfits from their "Salute" video as inspiration–seeing them on hangers underscores how much leather and metal are involved in the looks. The group also pinned some unrelated looks that they deemed appropriate for warriors. There's an elaborate mohawk braid, some armor from a runway show, and more. There are also some pop culture references like Xena: Warrior Princess and Wonder Woman. And unfortunately, there are also a number of pictures of feather headdresses, "warrior face paint," and "tribal" nail art, which is problematic.

Faking It

Last week when we spoke to Faking It's costume designer Mandi Lane, she gave us a ~tip~ to keep an eye out for the cream sweater that Amy wears in the show's third episode. That episode was last night and—OMG—what a sweater—nay, outfit it was. The essential elements are an Irish fisherman sweater, a pair of loose and distressed jeans, and—the clincher—suspenders. Even though it's almost warm in New York, I'm desperate to cop this look and wear it immediately. It is 100%, as Mandi described it, "effortlessly cool."

Taylor Swift, Met Gala

Yesterday, mere hours before the 2014 Met Gala, Taylor Swift tweeted that her cat, Meredith, had attacked her custom satin Oscar de la Renta gown. Meredith, in case you don't follow Taylor's Instagram closely, sits in bizarre, human-like positions and is pretty terrifying. It's not hard to imagine that the running dialogue in her head is akin to that of a human—and that's exactly what we did for the latest installment of Fashion Fanfic. Below is her account of yesterday, as Taylor prepared for the Met Gala.

Meredith extended her front paws far ahead of her, as she rolled onto her back. She had just been (rudely) awakened by the rustling of Taylor's house slippers. She was practicing her twirling for the red carpet.

"Um, I know that she's getting ready right now for the Met Gala," Meredith thought to herself, "but I'm hungry."

The internet's favorite deadpan cat had just woken up from her fourth nap of the day and was disgusted to find her food bowl dangerously low.

"I'll lose the cute little figure everyone loves so much on ~Instagram~ if Taylor doesn't feed me soon. Does she want that? Everyone loves a picture of a fat cat on Instagram, especially Taylor. I need food. Now."

Meredith arched her back and picked herself up to circle around Taylor's ankles.

"That'll remind her that I exist."

The smell of loose sugar and flour in the air meant that Karlie was on her way over soon to bake several batches of cookies before the event. It also meant there wasn't much time left to get Taylor's attention before she was in full-tilt BFF mode.

"If I'm not fed before they start baking, there will be consequences. Major ones."

While at the Met Galas of the past attendees tended to bring designers as their dates, this year a number of IRL couples hit the carpet together. Between Beyonce and Jay Z pretending to get engaged to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian serving some real old school glamour vibes, this year's Met Gala was full of stylish couples who deserve our attention. Let's give it to them!

Beyonce and Jay Z matched in Givenchy–she in a plunging sheer gown, he in a black-and-white tux. Bey accessorized with a sheer veil and dark lipstick, while Jay accessorized with a sparkly ring. JK, he merely picked it up for Bey when she dropped it. What a gentleman.

As Little Monsters around the world are well aware, Lady Gaga kicked off her artRave tour in Fort Lauderdale last night. While she didn't preview her tour wardrobe like Katy Perry, Mother Monster always delivers when it comes to performance outfits, so we were expecting a lot and, unsurprisingly, she totally delivered. There were wigs, leotards, a few familiar outfits, and brand new ones we'd never seen before, so let's take a look. Now that you know what she's wearing, you can plan your artRave outfit accordingly.

There were multiple bejeweled leotards (a staple for any human's wardrobe, TBH), but this is the only one with a Jeff Koons-inspired reflecting ball floating in front of it. Unlike her ARTPOP album cover, where a lifelike sculpture was accessorized with nothing but the ball, on tour she's wearing a set of wings made from feathers.

One of the simpler looks is a matching crop top and pants made of black latex. She wears a green wig (which is very Katy Perry looking, IMHO) and, like, a Mardi Gras necklace made from marijuana leaves. Perhaps this is the outfit for "Mary Jane Holland?" After this outfit, Gaga strips topless ON STAGE and is assisted into the next ensemble by a fleet of stylists.

Rihanna for 'Vogue Brazil.'

• Rihanna posted tons of photos from her mostly topless photo shoot for Vogue Brazil and then surprised us all with another (and somehow even more NSFW) topless photo for Lui. There was a whole lotta topless Rihanna around this week.

Demi Lovato's blonde hair got its moment in the spotlight again when Cosmopolitan for Latinas to on its cover. She also took a selfie that showed how down she is with trying local fashion.

• The 10th anniversary of Mean Girls fortuitously landed on a Wednesday, which meant it was time to break out the pink.

Rihanna attended the iHeart Radio Music Awards and looked like she'd just emerged from The Matrix. Very Jada Pinkett Smith, very #futuregoth.

• Katy Perry has been previewing her Prismatic World Tour wardrobe all week and shared the sketch of a colorful and caped Valentino piece she'll be wearing.

A$AP Mob

A$AP Mob could wear your designs.

If you're a budding designer and/or a big fan of A$AP Mob, today is your lucky day. The group, including A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, and more, is looking for "new and unique" designs for their new merch, as well as their fall clothing line. The guidelines are minimal—your design should stick within their already established aesthetic and adhere to the monochrome palette that's typical of their merch. The good news is if you're really into color and can't imagine winning the competition without it, you can use color, just be reserved about it. No one likes a colorful showoff, OK?

Ladies, if you're looking for a female-only army to join, I know the group for you. Little Mix is looking for recruits and you don't have to wear camouflage. YAY. The video for "Salute" just came out and I would not want to fight these four in battle. I mean, their combat uniform is leather and various chains. That's tough.

Their look comes courtesy of British fashion designer Nikita Karizma. The goal, according to Nikita, was to give them "empowering leather-look black outfits" and "raise the fashion stakes for the title track of their second album." Peep their looks below!

Jesy is in a leather bodysuit and thigh-high boots. Considering how well she dances in this outfit, I am confident she'd be able to go to battle in it.

Slow your roll, Katy Perry. We can't keep up with all these Prismatic Tour outfits. Katy just added another look to expect, this time from The Blonds, and whoa, this isn't just an outfit, it's a straight-up glamorous cat costume. It's also very similar to a number of the looks that the designing duo sent down the runway at their Gotham City- and Catwoman-inspired Fall 2014 show.

She also mysteriously refers to a "CAT-OUR section" of the show, which we think means, like, cat-themed couture? Katy must know we are very into pet fashion.

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