Fourth of July

Happy Birthday, America!

Happy July 3, everyone! If you're anything like me, Fourth of July really came outta nowhere this year, right? Like, tomorrow is the day with all the BBQs and fireworks? I feel like I was just sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Anyway, whether or not you forgot tomorrow is a national holiday, you still have time to swag yourself out with the American flag. You can even do so from head to toe, if you're so inclined. We traveled high and low (on the interwebz) to find the most patriotic gear out there that is available in stores all across the country.

Let's get started—the big day is quickly approaching!

You can begin your flagfit (flag + outfit) on your head with this hat from Forever 21. It is currently on sale for $5, but the color is appropriately faded so it looks vintage and will appear like you've long been celebrating the U.S.A.

Ariana Grande

Arianators, how you doing? Did you enjoy Total Ariana Live? How's your pulse after hearing "Break Free" for the first time and finding out Ariana Grande will be performing at the 2014 VMAs? Now that we're sure you're OK physically, can we talk about how much you loved Ariana's modern monochrome outfit?

The singer traded her mod performance wear for a blank tank top, flouncy white skirt, and–most surprising–black heels. Too hot for boots, eh, Ari? Her hair was in its trademark half-up/half-down 'do and looked, despite the unrelenting humidity in New York, totally sleek. It swayed with her as she and her dancers had a dance party for the premiere of "Break Free," and made me totally jealous–my hair has been tied back as tightly as possible for days.

Beyonce, Blue Ivy

Matching manicures

Hello, are you there? Have you recuperated from the most adorable thing you've ever seen in your life? I'm talking about, of course, this picture that Beyonce shared on Instagram of the matching manicures she and Blue Ivy have. Bey opted for a bright red polish and stiletto point, while Blue opted for a slightly deeper color and a round shape. Blue must know it's really hard to play on an iPad with long nails.

So, if you watched the new episode of Teen Wolf on Monday, you know there's a new baddie in town. Actually, there are multiple baddies and they go by the name of Berserkers. They may have only made a brief appearance so far, but these dudes are obviously tough. Barbara Vazquez, Teen Wolf's costume designer, broke down their costumes for us, which include hand-painted, blood-splattered pants. The details, you guys—they're cray.

Cop Lydia's H&M dress for yourself!

Lydia Martin hates pants and loves florals. While you may have suspected that if you've ever seen Teen Wolf, it was confirmed by Holland Roden (who plays Lydia) and Teen Wolf's costume designer Barbara Vazquez when we spoke to them earlier this season. With that in mind, how quintessentially Lydia was her outfit on last night's episode? A floral dress? It doesn't get more LM than that, TBH. The best part of her look? You can get it for yourself for under $25.

Over the weekend, Katy Perry shared pictures from her trip to Dollywood and, TBH, it looks like she had the best time. Like, who cares about amusement park rides when there is an attraction where you can shop Dolly Parton's closet and have items altered to fit you? No one, that's who. From "classy capri pants to chic jackets," Dolly's closet has a lot to offer. Real talk: What do you think Katy bought?

If you watched, like, one minute of the BET Awards Red Carpet coverage, you know it's hot in L.A. The best way to cool down if you're too hot? Forgo a shirt! Just ask Nicki Minaj–she performed at the show in a shirt (IDK if that's what to call it, TBH) made from gold chains. Her hair was long, wavy, and strategically placed. When riding a motorcycle inside you have to take precautions, OK? This is a PG-rated show.

YAY, Kesha is back.

• Kesha ditched her face paint for bangs on her new 'Teen Vogue' cover. The full spread is stripped down and gorgeous. We're feeling this new Kesha era.

• Beyonce and Jay Z kicked off their highly anticipated On The Run Tour and, as expected, there are a ton of outfits. We're partial to the fishnet and leather leotard, but then again, we like anything Jay wears (JK, JK LOL).

Rihanna covers Harper's Bazaar Arabia and is, unusually, fully covered up throughout the entire spread. She can wear all the clothes or nothing and kills it either way.

One Direction is releasing a new makeup line which Niall showed off on his hands. A free idea for their marketing team: Niall polish. Get it? He wears a glitter manicure well.

FKA Twigs dropped the video for "Two Weeks" this week and is serving up all kinds of Aaliyah in Queen Of The Damned realness. If you haven't watched this video upwards of ten times this week, you're missing out.

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