Last night, for the third year in a row, Kristen Bell hosted the CMT Music Awards. While in previous years she was joined by co-hosts—Toby Keith and Jason Aldean—this is the first year she went at it solo and she took the opportunity to talk about men's fashion. Specifically, tight jeans. Real tight. In response to Kristen's "Moose Knuckles" tune, we wrote a response using the medium we're most familiar with: emoji.

Demi Lovato

Yeah, I don't look like this at 4 a.m.

We knew Demi Lovato was the queen of no-makeup selfies and of changing her hair color, but we didn't know she was so skilled at combining two of the things she's best at. Demi posted this picture of her new purple-and-silver ombre hair and captioned it, "No makeup.. 4am..." No makeup AND new hair? That's a lot for one selfie, Demi. The new color comes after almost two months of brunette locks–while she looks great with every color (and she's done a lot), we've missed her bolder color choices. She made her big return with not only one color that doesn't grow out of heads naturally, but two.

While we've directed much of our fashion focus to Faking It's two lead female characters, today we're switching gears. You can't have a character like Shane in front of your eyeballs every week and not talk about him. Dude can wear prints like no one's business and his wardrobe in last night's episode is total proof of that.

Faking It

First up is his graphic button-up—it's got diamonds, unfinished triangles, arrows, and stripes. That's a whole lotta pattern for one short-sleeved shirt, but Shane obviously pulls it off like NBD. I never knew a shirt could be so multi-patterned, but now I do and I like it. A lot.

In case you were unaware of why Rihanna was wearing that sheer, yet totally sparkly, dress last night, it's because it was Monday, duh. A casual Monday night outfit, right? JK, it was because she was named the CFDA Fashion Icon of the Year and she needed to bring it, big time. After being introduced by Anna Wintourusing emojis, BTW—Rihanna delivered a short and sweet speech in which she touched on how much she loves fashion and, as always, was a total badgal/the best.

Below are a few of our fave quotes from her speech last night on top of some of our all-time fave ~lewks~.Enjoy!

Nicki Minaj

Bringing back the pasties.

Recently, Nicki Minaj has been keeping her look subdued. She's worn floor-length gowns to events in lieu of, like, a billion stuffed animals and has been favoring simple hair to wigs. She even—it seems—was so done with her wigs that she gave them to Rihanna. While we've enjoyed Nicki's new ~lewk~, we'd by lying if we said we didn't miss her old one. Well, good news—last night she brought back one of her former fave accessories: pasties!

Nicki performed at Hot 97 Summer Jam (and hung out with Rih, #JEALZ) wearing some silver star pasties and a completely sheer chain mail shirt. Nicki has been a longtime fan of pasties, but this is the first time we can think of that she's ever worn them on stage. She's worn them in videos, in the comfort of her own home, and on Halloween, but never as, like, an integral part of her outfit. It makes sense, though, considering how much she hates bras.

In March it was announced that Rihanna would be the recipient of the CFDA 2014 Fashion Icon Award. The ceremony is tonight, and we figured, as we bide the hours left until we see what badgalriri shows up wearing, we'd take a look back at a few of the trends she has been RIHsponsible for. In an interview with the New York Times late last week, Mel Ottenberg, her stylist, remarked that he loves working with Rih so much because of her undeniable influence and ability to get people talking. We will never get tired of talking about Rihanna, TBH. Peep a few of our fave trends that we attribute to her below!

When Rihanna Got Into It: November 2012.
When Others Got Into It: Spring 2013.
A Brief History: Rihanna debuted her matchy-matchy look almost two years ago on her 777 Tour, but the trend is still going strong in stores. These days practically every shirt seems to come with a matching bottom. This summer is going to be full o' sets, IMHO. As an early adopter of the trend, Katy Perry wore a matching crop top and skirt to the Kids Choice Awards in 2013, but she was still months behind her pal. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right?

So long, leotard.

• Miley Cyrus attended the World Music Awards and performed in—gasp!—a gown. Even leotards need a day off once in a while, y'know?

Lana Del Rey showed off her selfie skillz in Intro Magazine. LDR's selfies > my selfies. She has a natural talent, TBH.

Mariah Carey wore a Versace gown on the subway because, I mean, what else would Mimi wear on the subway? She looks like she's having a great time, which makes me suspect glamour is the key to a tolerable commute.

• Kristen Stewart upgraded her sneaker collection with a pair of Chanel kicks. These shoes are not appropriate for the gym. Like, at all.

• Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married on Saturday (yeah, that was this week) and we imagined what a commemorative plate would look like. It would feature Kanye lyrics, naturally.

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey in her subway finest.

For most people, taking the subway is not very glamorous. You're crammed in a narrow box with people who wear huge backpacks and DGAF that, like, three extra people could fit in the space of their bag. Yesterday, four other people and I were prevented from holding onto anything because a woman decided to rest her entire body against a pole at rush hour. In short: The subway is the worst.

Mariah Carey, on the other hand, obviously does not think it's that bad. Maybe it's because she treats it as a luxurious mode of transportation? The elusive chanteuse obviously enjoyed her time on the 1 train late last night, sharing photos from the event (only for Mariah Carey and tourists is riding the subway an event worthy of capturing on Instagram) and describing it as a "joyride" and her look as "#subwayincouture." While normally I try to avoid being on the 1 train at 2 AM, I would've paid to be there for this. Like, way more than the typical subway fare.

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