When it comes to making miserable look good, Sky Ferreira is a pro. In a series of new ads shot by Henrik Purienne for Maison Kitsuné, Ferreira serves up some "OMG I HATE YOU, CLOSE THE CURTAINS," realness in some less-realistic lounge-wear. I mean, I'm sure there ~are~ people out there who lay around pouting and posing and reading The New York Times in a sheening, cobalt pullover, stark-white business socks and a floral, silk headscarf—but, yeah, I don't know any of those people. (Sorry for shattering your dreams, fellas. Most girls definitely don't wake up looking quite so easy-like-Sunday-morning.)
SCUURT! Jennifer Lawrence just casually debuted a very short pixie cut via her Facebook fan page without, like, any sort of explanation or announcement at all. GIRL. If you're gonna go all temporary Beyonce on us like that, you have to at least give us some deets! Lawrence was snapped en route to a meet-up with her fellow Catching Fire cast mates for The Hunger Games’ Global Fan Day, and we’re really curious as to how the franchise’s loyal fans will feel about her chopping off Katniss Everdeen’s signature side-braid. I mean, she can obvi wear a wig if it hasn’t grown out by the time the next film rolls around, but seeing Katniss without her hair at an event for The Hunger Games kinda feels like pulling back the curtain on the Wizard in The Wizard of Oz, amirite? Kind of?
Miley's new tattoo of her "mammie."

Miley! What would your grandmother say?! (In this case, probably something along the lines of, “Well, isn't that swell.”) Last night, Miley Cyrus called on good pal and celebrity tattoo artist, Kat Von D, to add another piece of ink to her ever-growing collection. Kat’s tatted Cyrus several times before, including the two crossed arrows on her elbow (which symbolize “friendship”) and a mini-rendition of a da Vinci anatomical heart that she got in February and April, respectively. This time around, Von D replicated a vintage photo of Miley’s maternal grandmother, Loretta Finley, a.k.a., “Mammie,” on her right forearm. And it’s like, really real-looking.
Demi Lovato for 'Latina.'

Dang, Demi! And here we thought your last magazine cover was a knock-out. I mean, to be fair, it was. But this—this is like, stutter-inducing gorgeous. Latina magazine named Demi Lovato one of this year's "Latina Women of the Year," and it's easy to see why: the 21-year-old singer has been RULL busy over the last 12 months, doing things like singing catchy songs (duh), hosting The X Factor (for the second season in a row), collaborating on her own signature nail art collections, making charitabe trips to Africa and, oh, rocking the heck out of blue hair, which, TBH, is no easy feat.
And even though our dreams of a blue-haired Demi cover have yet to come true (*sigh*), she looks G-G-GREAT as a blonde. (Like we said, stutter-inducing.) Especially when paired with a body-con black dress, embellished cropped jacket, a majorly stunning necklace and a come-hither stare that, quite frankly, is making us blush.
Thirteen years ago, Eminem released The Marshall Mathers LP and the world was formally introduced to the ~real~ Slim Shady: crisp white tees, baggy jeans, a ton of du-rags and a platinum blonde buzz-cut. OK, so the really real Slim Shady (aka: Marshall Mathers), is actually a natural brunette—but Em’s blonde locks quickly became synonymous with his rap persona during his breakthrough era. In fact, Em kept bleaching his hair through 2009, when he reemerged from a short hiatus with Relapse, his sixth studio album, and first debuted his dark, natural color.
At that point, he’d also kicked a few bad habits, beefed up his physique and sharpened his style game: he traded du-rags for military caps and beanies and swapped saggy tracksuits for leather bombers—but that was just the beginning of the evolution of Marshall Mathers. Flash forward to last May, when Em announced he was working on a new album. That album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, was released today and is a sequel to his eponymous 2000 EP. Em went back to blonde for MMLP2 and told Rolling Stone in an upcoming cover story that he credits his manager for the throwback 'do idea.
"And once the songs started to come together and the picture got a little more clear of what it was gonna be, [my manager] hit me with the idea and I was like ‘Yo, you know I thought about that, right?’ And he was like, ‘Well you know, why not?’ And I was like ‘I don’t know how it’s gonna look. I haven’t had it in how many f****** years? Five, six years.’ I was like, ‘I’m so used to it being dark,’ you know. So I just tried it. And I was like ‘F*** it.’”
Ariana Grande for 'Complex' Magazine.

When we think of Ariana Grande, the first thing that comes to mind (after her multi-octave, mini-Mariah voice, of course) is her super-girly, vintage style. She’s like a tiny ‘50s housewife, but with way longer hair and way higher heels. The squeaky-clean starlet has never met a floral, a-line dress she didn't like, which is why we ACTUALLY gasped out loud when we saw her new photos for Complex magazine. Grande channels gangster glam in the mag’s December issue and resembles a mob boss’ well-dressed wife or like, the deviant star of a film noir.
Rita Ora for 'Liberation.'

Rita Ora is the kind of woman who wears many, many hats (and we mean that both figuratively and literally). Figuratively, we've seen the British pop star moonlight as a model, a makeup designer and an all-around fashion fixture in the last few months alone. Literally, she also has an extensive, ever-growing collection of lux headgear. Like this rabbit-ear headband, for example. And this House of Holland metallic snap-back. And this ~very~ memorable, diamond-encrusted, antler-horned hat-mask hybrid, which we first spotted several weeks back—and now, has finally re-materialized on the cover of Libération.
Ariana Grande for 'Notion' Magazine.

What’s cuter than Ariana Grande on any given day? Aside from like, a bathtub filled with puppies, not a whole lot. Actually, after seeing the new cover of Notion magazine, we take that back. Dressed in a textured, black-and-white bustier crop-top and flared black skirt, Grande gets the cartoon treatment with illustrated embellishments from emerging artist, Hattie Stewart. OK, so, correction: the only thing cuter than Ariana Grande on any given day is now Ariana Grande surrounded by doe-eyed cartoon faces. (Sorry, puppies.)
T-Boz and Chilli for 'V' Magazine.

TLC is B-A-C-K and TBH, they look like they haven't aged a day since the '90s. Earlier this month, we got to talk to Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas about costuming for their recently-released biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, and they told us that the process was actually pretty easy—thanks to their ability to preserve original outfits from the golden days and the current resurgence of '90s style. V Magazine got to chat with the duo as well, and the mag gave us the exclusive on some choice quotes from their forthcoming interview with the R&B legends.
