Katy Perry for 'GQ' magazine.
The text on Katy Perry's February GQ cover claims that she "goes pin-up" for the issue, which makes her the most modern pin-up model we've ever seen. Like, the spread kinda just looks like most of her other magazine spreads, because she is neither pulling classic poses, nor styled in the iconic Bettie Page way. Pin-up or not, she looks ah-may-zing.
In one shot, Katy shows off her squatting abilities by straddling a fire extinguisher. She's laughing, so it seems unlikely that a blaze is ravaging the set of her GQ photo shoot. As far as what she's wearing, KP matches her pink Cosabella bra to her Giuseppe Zanotti heels and her white Chloe blazer to her "skirt" from H&M. GQ calls it a skirt, but it looks like a pair of bejeweled, high-waisted hot pants with fringe to me. Psst, men at GQ, if there's a hole for each leg, the piece is no longer a skirt. Just a li'l women's fashion tip from me to you.
There are only two episodes left of The Carrie Diaries, which means Friday nights will soon be less fashion- and Sebastian-filled. I am upset about both. Last night's episode featured Carrie making moves at Interview and, as always, looking very stylish while doing so. We spoke to the show's costume designer, Eric Daman, about what Carrie wore.

The show opens with Carrie and Sebastian walking in Washington Square Park and stumbling across a grisly scene: a hawk eating a pigeon. No thanks! Eric gave us major deets on Carrie's coat (the third week a patterned coat opens the show, BTW): "OMG. Are you ready for a real behind-the-scenes secret? Carrie Bradshaw is wearing Blair Waldorf's Chloe coat! Fabulously, I might add. Totally making it her own. I was in love with this faded-floral Chloe coat, and while wrapping Gossip Girl, I just knew Carrie could breathe a second life into it, so I 'borrowed' it from Blair Waldorf's closet! When I read this 'walk and talk in the park' scene between Carrie and Sebastian, it seemed like the ideal moment for this gorgeous coat's second coming. To give it true Carrie Bradshaw appeal, we paired it with a wide-brimmed hat, knee-high Sergio Rossi boots, and Melie Bianco color-blocked bag. Actually, it kinda feels a little Serena-y now that I take a second look! LOL!"

• The Golden Globes were last weekend and we kept tabs on all the fashion from the show, the accessories, and Emma Watson's backless dress. Peep all our coverage from the Golden Globes hurr.
• Beyonce's been wearing a ton of Versace recently and, well, we noticed. We see you, Bey, we see you.
• We spoke with Teen Wolf's costume designer about why Isaac was wearing a scarf when it was obviously warm out. Then we were like, wait, Isaac can wear whatever he wants, whenever he wants.
• We peeped a commercial that appears to be for Beyonce's new perfume. It was heavy on the glitter and hair-flips. We would've bought Rise anyway, but now we're definitely going to buy it.
• Finally, Katy Perry performed in Beijing in never-before-seen outfits. We wondered if they were, perhaps, being considered for her Prismatic Tour because they both included and reflected MAD LIGHT.

Can you believe it's chocolate?

Happy Friday, errybodaaay! This week, we were inspired by photos from the Salon Du Chocolat fashion show, so in lieu of food-related items, we decided that THIS Food Friday we’d create a game: Chocolate or Couture? We're pitting fashion made from chocolate against real runway couture looks. It's sure to be the nation’s fave game by, like, next Wednesday.
Below you’ll find six pairs, each of which contains one outfit consisting of elements made from chocolate and one that is constructed completely of non-chocolate materials. To play, just click on whichever of the two images you think is chocolate. If you’re right, you’ll know. If you’re wrong, you’ll also know.
If you think you have the highest score in all of Internetland, be sure to write it in the comments below and then share it with all your friends who definitely care about your ability to correctly identify food from fashion. At the very least, you’ll earn our respect. Good luck!
WHICH OUTFIT WAS MADE WITH CHOCOLATE? CLICK ONE.
We have a new fashion consultant in our midst, y'all. No, you don't have to meet her IRL to get her opinion on your look. She'll come to you through the computer and you're probably already familiar with her personal style.
OK, fine. You read the headline. IT'S RIHANNA! RIHplies, my new favorite Tumblr of all time, keeps track of every Instagram comment @badgalriri has offered up to individual fans, fan accounts, critics, and fellow famous peeps. A lot of Rih's replies revolve around #FASHUN, which makes sense since she has (a) designed her own line of clothing, (b) produced and sat on the panel of Styled to Rock, and (c) has on-point personal style. So, without further ado, may I introduce to you: Rihanna, fashion consultant.
SHE'LL OFFER ADVICE...
She has life experience and is happy to weigh in if you're having a hard time deciding what to wear.

We already heard that The Blonds would be designing some of the outfits for Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz Tour, but, the "Wrecking Ball" singer just revealed they're not the only ones. Yep, Miles has recruited the likes of Jeremy Scott and Marc Jacobs to outfit her on tour. Being tight with designers certainly has its perks, eh?
Beyonce in head-to-toe Versace.

If you haven't been keeping up with Beyonce's photo-posting marathon over the past few days, what have you been doing? There are 24 hours in a day. You can dedicate at least five of them to looking through every picture Bey shares. In case you have other things going on, we'll fill you in: Beyonce has been wearing a lot of Versace. Like, she probably should've been given a verse in Migos' "Versace" (under her rap alter ego, Third Ward Trill) because she would have a lot of material.
To hang out with Jay in an elevator, Bey wore a printed pink silk Versace shirt and a pair of leggings from the M.I.A.'s Versus Versace collab. While the shirt is sold out (it was a cool $638 anyway), the green-and-pink floral-print leggings are still available! You may not be able to wear Versace on Versace exactly like Bey, but you CAN put those bad boys on and pose in any elevator you can find.
Lorde on the covering of 'Rolling Stone.'

In case you couldn't tell, this is Lorde on the cover of Rolling Stone. With Lorde's glorious mane covering five of the letters from the magazine's name, it could easily pass as "Roll One," which would be, like, a magazine about good bread or something, IDK. It's definitely Rolling Stone, though, because Lorde is very, very excited about it. She's given the announcement an all-caps tweet, so you know she's excited. She doesn't throw caps around frequently.
This isn't Lorde's first magazine cover, but it is the first of 2014 and also—hello—Rolling Stone is huge. The singer is, as usual, channeling "goth vibes" on the cover, with her dark plum lips and familiar all-black uniform.

Is Alexander Wang's "Parental Advisory" shirt the most copied look from the Spring 2014 runway? It definitely seems like it. Since the runway show in September, both Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 have been accused of knocking off the logo that appeared everywhere in Wang's collection. Pixie Market has taken their imitation one step further, not only using the logo, but putting it on a white sweatshirt with mesh cut-outs. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I'd bet Alexander Wang is feeling pretty flattered right now.
While Pixie Market is not the first to, um, sell a familiar look (and certainly not the last), their version of this sweatshirt is about as close to the original that we've seen in recent memory.
Lena Dunham on the cover of 'Vogue.'
Look who landed her first Vogue cover: Lena Dunham! I specify her first cover because Vogue does so as well in the title of the article, which, I assume, means Anna Wintour & Co. are planning for more in the future. Looks like Anna's appearance at the Girls premiere last week wasn't just to show off her perfectly appropriate jacket.
The February cover features Lena looking more buttoned-up (literally) than we're used to seeing her in a red polka-dot shirt. She's pulling at her collar as if she's nervous, but, girl, we've all seen your show. You know, Girls? The show you created, write, produce, direct, and star in. Being photographed by Annie Leibovitz must be less nerve-wrecking than all that, right?
