Lauren Conrad and her new 'do.

• Lauren Conrad got herself a shorter 'do, and we are feelin' it. She is a hair goddess and we must all bow before her, IMHO.
• Selena Gomez was spotted shooting new Adidas NEO ads, and though we have no idea what season they're for, we're excited that the duo is teaming up yet again. She looks ready for both winter and summer, which is how I've been forced to dress this past week.
• Ellie Goulding, Shailene Woodley, and Theo James were on MTV First to talk about Divergent, and Ellie issued a beauty warning out to the masses. Considering how effortlessly cool she looks all the time, we'll take any advice she offers.
• Miley Cyrus debuted a total of four new performance outfits on her Bangerz Tour this week. Our faves (only if we had to choose) were her tongue-print leotard and stuffed animal jacket. Y'know, stuff only Miley could pull off.
• There was a momentary dearth of Lupita Nyong'o news in our lives, but fortunately, her cover of The Hollywood Reporter with her stylist and Michelle Dockery was released, so we didn't have to resort to looking at old pictures of her.

In addition to serving up a whole lotta half-naked dudes (#hey), Jennifer Lopez's new music video for "I Luh Ya Papi" serves up some gender equality realness. At the beginning of the video, a record label exec is pitching video locations to J.Lo and her friends (I always bring mine to meetings too) and they're, like, really terrible. A water park? How about no. The zoo? Hard pass. Jennifer and her friends decide the video should feature Jennifer in the role of a ~typical~ video guy, with the gender roles reversed. There is, for example, a shirtless man washing a car/his body while J.Lo and her friends look on. Typical Thursday where I come from, TBH.
One of biggest gender reversals in the video, at least fashion-wise, though, is when J.Lo dons a jumpsuit that is quite reminiscent of her infamous 2000 Grammys dress. I can't believe people made a big deal about this, you guys. She was wearing a full-length Versace gown that showed a little bit of chest and stomach skin. Everything else was covered. Simon Cowell wore deeper Vs on American Idol every Tuesday and Wednesday night on network TV. Anyway, it seems that because she is imitating men in her video, J.Lo wears a similar print in a similar color scheme, but it ends in pants, rather than a skirt. Talk about a power suit, riiight?
Lady Gaga on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
As expected, Lady Gaga is in Austin at SXSW. Before her appearance on the Doritos #Boldstage, she hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live in a voluminous white dress and hat designed by Gareth Pugh. Oh, and they're both made from coffee filters. *pauses to allow you to process that information* Gaga revealed that in an attempt to "upcycle," she chose the dress and hat for her performance in Austin. Gee, I wonder where she got the idea to create her Austin wardrobe from household items? IDK, maybe these Doritos dress suggestions I offered last week? I see you, Gaga.
Lady Gaga on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
She and Jimmy discussed fashion (she got her flying dress at CVS, JK) and he inquired about her choices, and whether we'd ever see her in "Gap jeans" or "a nice pair of khakis." Ever the self-promoter, she told him to watch her performance because he might be in for a surprise. Did she dress like a Best Buy employee as Jimmy suggests? Did she wear a dress made from Doritos bags? Nah.
Iggy is not going to school, believe it or not.

With the 2014 Woodies Festival mere hours away at SXSW, we can barely wait to see what Iggy Azalea has planned, wardrobe-wise. On Tuesday, Iggy tweeted that her costumes would be serving up some schoolgirl realness, and we know when Iggy does a theme, she does it hard (see: Halloween, the video for "Fancy"). In anticipation of her outfit, we figured we'd see what she'd look like in some schoolgirl inspired outfits other stars have worn. She has, of course, already given us a preview of what she looks like in a cheerleading uniform and Clueless attire (both school-ish...), but these are some different styles. Let's take a look.
Karl Lagerfeld loves emojis.

In case you missed the marriage of everyone's favorite two things (emojis and Karl Lagerfeld), Karl designed a set of emojis to coincide with the launch of his fragrance line. The app, which you can download now, is called emotiKARL and contains Karl-approved emojis, like various hands with fingerless leather gloves, the many emotions of Choupette, perfume bottles, and more. Since I have read, cherished, and savored a vast number of Karl interviews in my life, I am fairly confident I have an idea of how his emoji proposal meeting went down. Here is my fictional account of the meeting in our latest installation of Fashion Fanfic.
NB: In honor of Karl, I originally wrote this story in French. I have since translated it to English, though, so you don't have to.
Roberto Cavalli's Bangerz Tour sketches.

Miley Cyrus is beginning to rival Beyonce in ever-changing onstage outfits. Over the weekend in Milwaukee, she debuted a new leotard and a jacket made from stuffed animals. A mere two days later, in Dallas, she broke out two new Roberto Cavalli looks. We knew to expect some Cavalli on this tour—he shared his sketches in January—but we didn't know we would get TWO in the same night. Miley, you're spoiling us.
Kira and Allison on 'Teen Wolf.'
Umm, is everyone recovered from last night's Teen Wolf? Liiike, what is going on? Between all the blood, flies, and Stiles vomiting up used bandages, my eyes were closed for, like, 50% of the episode. Luckily they were wide open when Kira and Allison wore matching leather sleeves! Are they communicating telepathically now? Let's discuss.
First of all, how awesome were these two last night? Yeah, their jackets were on point, but also, uh, they helped save all these nogitsune-possessed men from themselves. Big up, Kira and Allison. Second of all, they both looked really good while doing so. It's not an easy task, but they managed AND triumphed!
How much does Rihanna's necklace weigh, TBH?

It's no secret that Rihanna is all about #phreshofftherunway looks. She's also all about pieces that are #CCcertified AND has shown an affinity for oversized accessories in the past. Thus, a necklace that made its grand debut just last week at Chanel's Fall 2014 runway show is obviously an ideal accessory. Especially if it's a lock so big that it could secure a yacht.
Rihanna must've called dibs on the padlock necklace last week as she was making friends/posing for scrapbook photos during Paris Fashion Week, and Uncle Karl must've hooked her up. Between the gold bike chain and the size of the lock, Rih's neck must be exhausted. What kind of exercises are needed to prepare your neck for such a weighty accessory? Is this called a LOCKet? I have a lot of questions.

In the YouTube hair tutorial circles that I run in, Lauren Conrad is a hair god. She was the OG of braided bangs, showing off her braiding skills on The Hills. She was riding the ombre train way before it was a ~thing~, she dabbled in "Bardot bangs" and pink tips last spring, and, generally, she just has totally enviable, beachy waves. As an expert in all things related to LC's hair, imagine my complete shock when, yesterday, she debuted a shorter and sleeker new 'do! So long, curling iron. Welcome back, flat iron. If Lauren is into straight hair, I'm into straight hair (JK, but not really).
Miley Cyrus performing on her Bangerz Tour.

When Miley Cyrus kicked off her Bangerz Tour, we knew we'd be in for a whole lot of #FASHUN. She had recruited the likes of The Blonds, Jeremy Scott, Marc Jacobs, and more to design her wardrobe, so when her tour kicked off last month, her nine different outfits barely fazed us. Last night, less than a month into the tour, Miley debuted at least three new looks. How many will we see before the tour ends in June? One million? According to my calculations, at this rate, that figure is accurate.
The first of Miley's new looks combined two of her fave things: tongues and high-cut leotards. The introduction of the long-sleeved, nude, tongue-printed leotard means some other looks may be temporarily benched.
