As if we weren't excited enough about Beyonce's first-ever calendar, this morning B released a behind-the-scenes video of the calendar shoot. We love nothing more than a behind-the-scenes video but add Beyonce? This is all of our fave things wrapped up in one perfect package.
As a member of the Ever-Changing Hair Club™ (other members include Rihanna and Rita Ora), Bey's hair changes with each outfit/month of the calendar. The first 'do we see is platinum, which matches her entirely white outfit. Maybe this shot is for August as a reminder to wear all your white—even together, like B!—before Labor Day.
Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Rihanna prefer the no shirt look.

Looks like Rihanna's fave fall trend is catching on, y'all! That's right, we're talking no shirts, no bras, no problem. At least, no major problems. Yet. The trend has now spread from Rih to Nicki Minaj to Mariah Carey and while they're all approaching it differently, the fundamentals are the same: 1.put on pants and/or shorts, 2. do not put on a bra, 3. do not put on a shirt, 4. put on a jacket, and, finally, 5. close the jacket a little bit, whether by button or zipper, and then do yo thang.
Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of 'Elle' France.
Um, you guys, do you know what comes out in less than a month (officially as of yesterday)? CATCHING FIRE! Elle France snagged Katniss Everdeen herself, a.k.a. Jennifer Lawrence, and a wind machine (we plebes know it as a fan) for their October cover. Unlike J.Law's Vogue cover, where her shorter crop was on display, her hair here is Katniss-braid long, but it's blonde and not the deep chocolate color Katniss is known for. Her makeup is also very Katniss-esque, read: barely there. Like, she has some light rose lip color, and that's it. The lighting and focus on the cover is soft: Jennifer barely looks bothered by the wind that is tousling her hair a lot. Probz why she has that Oscar.
Fashion-wise, Jenn could be wearing a plain black t-shirt for all we know, though based on the inside spread, which, BTW, features Dior and only Dior, it seems pretty likely that something elaborate is going on out of frame.
Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacobs at the 30th Annual Night Of Stars Gala.

As we all well know, leading up to the release of Bangerz, Miley Cyrus was errywhere. Since then, though, she's been relatively out of sight. Well, y'all, Miley reemerged last night at The Fashion Group International’s 30th Annual Night Of Stars Gala and, wow, this is certainly a different look from the Miles we've grown accustomed to in the past few months. She's in a floor-length gown, it's not white, and there's no midriff in sight! There is some skin showing because the dress is backless, but, I mean, she's just glamming it up a bit, not joining a convent. The last time Miles wore a dress publicly was in August: she was still with Liam and the VMAs hadn't happened yet. It was a different time.
The emerald green dress was designed by the person who introduced Miley to fashion when she was 16, Marc Jacobs. This isn't the first time Miley's worn floor-length Marc Jacobs: if you can cast your memory back to the Met Gala, you'll recall MC's nude and black mesh dress was also MJ. Miley doesn't just do red carpets with Marc, though; she also lent her (nude) bod to one of his "Protect The Skin You're In" t-shirts. The two go way back, which is why Miley was given the honor of presenting the Superstar Award to Marc and Robert Duffy, the president of Marc Jacobs International. She posted on both Twitter and Instagram (and maybe Facebook? IDK, I'm not friends with her yet) about how proud she was to present the award to "the biggest superstars in the room." Marc was also Miley's date: the event was a nonstop Miley/Marc chill sesh.
Lady Gaga at the airport, holding a claw. NBD.

Quick: what's the one accessory you just cannot travel without? Your favorite necklace? A scarf to use as a pillow on the plane? A black claw with long nails? For Lady Gaga, it's option number 3. With just a few weeks til ARTPOP drops, Gaga headed to Berlin carrying, as we all do (JK), a claw. Is Gagaloo getting in the Halloween spirit? If so, we have some ideas as to how she could dress as herself. #META Is she going to start making the Little Monsters put their claws up instead of their paws? Did she carry the claw through the metal detector or have it x-rayed? Claw accessories and airport logistics raise many questions.
Lana Del Rey on the cover of the November issue of 'NYLON.'
After hearing nary a peep about Lana Del Rey for months, she's popped back into our lives big time in the past few days. First, of course, was her role in the Kimye engagement: Kanye hired a 50-piece orchestra to play her song, "Young and Beautiful" as the soundtrack to the proposal. Then, she crops up on NYLON's November cover with insanely shiny, deep auburn hair (it's not that far of a cry from her dark brown hair the last time we saw her, on the Tropico poster, but it's noticeably lighter). Where ya been, LDR? It doesn't really matter, TBH, we're just happy to have you back.
On the cover, Lana wears a Calvin Klein denim shirt, a black bustier from Nasty Gal, and a DKNY skirt. She may be laying low, but she can still bring it when it comes to magazine covers: she has, after all, had ample experience. Gone is her signature cat eye; in its place a some subtle pink eyeliner and mascara.
Justin Bieber on set for his Adidas NEO photoshoot.

We've already seen the images for Justin Bieber's most recent Adidas NEO campaign, but now, thankfully, there's a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, so we can peep moving JB in all his dancing/drumming/pose-striking glory. There's also a lot of reclining, like in his fall campaign, because dancing using only your shoulders is tiring.
Rihanna wearing Rihanna X River Island.

It feels like just yesterday we first heard about Rihanna's final collection with River Island. Oh wait, LOL, it was yesterday. My bad. Hours after the announcement, Rih held an impromptu fashion show (every day is a fashion show for badgalriri, whether in Abu Dhabi or Greece) to debut some of the looks in the best way she knows how: modeling them herself.
In the behind-the-scenes video from yesterday, Rih promised the collection would be full o' florals and, based on this first look, she has definitely delivered. Despite being in Greece, where it's, like, 80 degrees, RiRi broke out a dark floral, velvet crop top and matching pants. I'm not sure a head-to-toe velvet look would work for everyone, but it, obviously, looks ah-may-zing on Rihanna. She looks ready to go to bed but also go to a party at the same time? A winning combo, IMHO. Each of these pieces could easily be dressed up or down this winter in freezing places like New York (velvet/turtleneck/long pants), or somewhere warmer like, IDK, Athens.
AnnaSophia Robb as Carrie Bradshaw in season 2 of 'The Carrie Diaries.'

In case you haven't had it marked in your calendars for weeks like we have, The Carrie Diaries is back on Friday! We'll finally see how Carrie's summer in NYC went (spoiler alert: she ends up there as an adult), as well as how her job at Interview is going (spoiler alert: she ends up as a newspaper columnist). Seems like young Carrie has adult Carrie figured out prettttty well. In a new preview, we see that the gang is (largely) back together, Samantha makes her grand entrance, and Carrie is dealing with heartbreak. Boo Sebastian. Boo Maggie.
How is Carrie coping with her feelings? A new look, obviously! Carrie debuts a shorter and sleeker 'do in the preview and admits that the sting of defeat is made "easier by an awesome new look." We agree, CB, we totally agree. Carrie's fabulous '80s fashion is also back in full-force: there are a lot of prints (we see you, polka dot shirt and leopard print shorts), bodycon dresses, and overalls this season.
A Still from Azealia Banks' 'ATM Jam' video.

It's been a while since we've seen or heard from Azealia Banks. The release of her album, Broke With Expensive Taste, keeps getting delayed (right now it's slated to come out in January 2014), so she hasn't had much to promote. Last summer, though, she released "ATM Jam," a song produced by the man of summer 2013, Mr. Pharrell Williams. Today, the video was released, and it's so full of outfits and day-glo that we barely even noticed Pharrell doesn't make an appearance. Between electronically-altered outfits and actual clothing changes, there are a lotta looks: let's peep 'em all!

The video opens not with Azealia herself, but her three colorful friends. This one, who will be known as "Blue" from now on, matches her clothes to her hair throughout the entire video. In this first shot, she's wearing a blue crop top that has "Melons" emblazoned across the front because she loves fruit a lot, I guess.
