Most of us are far from flawless when we get into bed at night. The makeup comes off, the pajamas go on and face masks and zit cream are in full effect. Needless to say, most of us don't exactly wake up looking flawless either, especially when you're prone to drooling and "stylish sleepwear" equals your least-ratty T-shirt. But when Beyonce claimed in "***Flawless" that she woke up looking like... well, Beyonce, we
believed bey-lieved her. And then we all sighed and shrugged and said to ourselves, "Life's just not fair." But there's hope for us yet, fellow Beyhive devotees! Because even though you might not be able to wake up looking like Beyonce, now you can LITERALLY wake up looking flawless. (Or at least wear the word flawless on the back of your nightshirt.)
Little Mix on 'MTV Live!'

MIXERS! Are you out there? Are you breathing? (If not, please have someone check your pulse.) Are you still spinning from Little Mix's whirlwind, 30-minute "Live From MTV" special? Because we are! Yesterday, Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock (aka Little Mix) all sat down with MTV for some fun, games, and a lot of juicy dish.
Along with their X Factor buddies, Fifth Harmony, the UK girl group has spent the last month opening for Demi Lovato's Neon Lights tour, and as expected, there was plenty of behind-the-scenes girl talk to tell. For example: What did they all think when Demi shaved the side of her head??? OBVIOUSLY, the general consensus was something along the lines of "she looks SO hot." Duh.
Little Mix for 'Fabulous.'

Most bands are lucky to land a single magazine cover in the course of their career. Little Mix has already snagged five—in one month. NBD. All in a day's work for the UK girl group, who just released a spandex-tastic music video for "Word Up!," a cover of Cameo's original funky jam from 1986. The song was recorded for the BBC Sport Relief campaign, which raises money for underprivileged children with support from artists and athletes. But the quintuple Fabulous covers? Yeah, those were all for the fans. (I think the appropriate response here is: "Word UP.")

Rita Ora for Rimmel London.

IT'S HEE-RREE! That's right, Ritabots. After almost six months of waiting, guessing, and drooling, we've finally gotten our first full glimpse of the ad campaign for Rita Ora's long-anticipated collaboration with Rimmel London. Yesterday, Ora Instagrammed the world exclusive editorial spread to her loyal fans, and despite the frigid temps (on the East Coast, at least *scowls at California*), we can officially confirm that spring has sprung—and it's going to be a bright one.
SHE does Paris Fashion Week.

If you ever went to Disney World as a little kid, then you likely know the unbridled joy of the beloved character's breakfast. As you and your family ordered eggs and bacon, Disney favorites would walk around the restaurant, allowing for photo ops and scribbling signatures in autograph books. It was kind of like meeting your idols (at an age when idolizing cartoons wasn't totally cray). As an adult, one might liken it to Rihanna's first few days of Paris Fashion Week, where she basically buddied up with ALL the best designers for a monster collection of framable photos. (It should also be noted that Rih managed to wear a different shade of lipstick in every single shot, which is just, like, wow. *bows down*)
And the Oscar for the Best Dress at the 2014 Academy Awards goes to... Ugh, bear with me. This seal is stuck. Man, this thing is REALLY on there. Does anyone happen to have, like, an envelope opener or something? I JUST got this mani and really don't want to ruin my nails. Anybody? Bueller? OK, well, in that case, we're just going to have to give you our top 10 because TBH, we didn't want to pick a favorite anyway.
LUPITA NYONG'O IN PRADA

OHHH, LUPITA. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways! JK, nobody has time for that (our list is LONG). But seriously, we are obsessed with Nyongo's "Nairobi blue," deep-V custom Prada gown. Paired with a delicate gold Fred Leighton headband, diamond leaflet earrings, and her adorable "family totem" frog-shaped ring, the Best Supporting Actress winner proved, yet again, why she's fashion AND film's newest "It" Girl. She just. Can't. Lose.
KATE HUDSON IN ATELIER VERSACE

Just when we thought we couldn't love a gown on Kate Hudson more than that slinky, yellow satin number she wore at the end of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (GAH. SO GOOD!), she swoops in from left field with this beaded, belly-grazing Atelier Versace gown, complete with shrouded cape.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior at the 2014 Academy Awards.

Word on the street (and by street we mean Twitter) is that before taking the long walk down the red carpet, Jennifer Lawrence made a pit stop at the McDonald's directly across the street from Hollywood's Dolby Theatre. Hey, this show is LONG and a girl's gotta eat. Thankfully, from what we can tell, it looks like J-Law was able to keep any and all grease stains away from her stunning, strapless Christian Dior (duh) gown. She was not, however, able to stay on her feet, as the actress took yet another tiny tumble (despite telling ABC that she even did a "stair test" before the show) while exiting her limo. At least this time was at a less conspicuous moment?
Harry's heart is officially within reach.

Sorry, world (and Maeve, especially). You put up a good fight, but I just figured out how to make Harry Styles my husband. No, it doesn't have anything to do with One Direction's new perfume, or repairing Harry's holey/holy black jeans, headgear, and fashion shows, or taking down his lyrically outspoken famous ex. *WINK*
I've come to the conclusion that Harry Styles, both figuratively AND literally, wears his precious little heart on his bulging bicep sleeve. And I'm going to take full advantage of my recently acquired knowledge by appealing to his love of symbolic body art. Yep, that's right. I'm going to get a tattoo of my cardiac muscle on my left arm, just like the one Hazza casually debuted on a recent outing, so that there'll be no question in his mind that we are TOTALLY made for each other. Two hearts, beating as one. #notpsychoatall
