Rita Ora for Rimmel.

Hey, #RITABOTS! Consider your uniform (almost) complete. Yesterday, Rita Ora's new Material Girl campaign dropped, providing us with some graphic-print goodness for our spring wardrobe. Today, Ora decided to give us a sneak peek of her upcoming Rimmel London campaign, which pretty much gives us the icing on our sartorial cake (i.e. lipstick).
With her platinum bob tussled into chunky waves, Ora flashes a perfect pout in a deep crimson color that better be included in her upcoming collection for the British beauty brand. We got a brief glimpse of the line back in October, when Rita shared some BTS snaps from her shoot and a quick look at the chubby lipstick "crayons" she created for her debut makeup collaboration.
Solange just released a TON of sneak-peek pics from her "Girls of Blaze" Disc Collection campaign for Puma, and you better grab your sunglasses because this ish is BRIGHT. Her debut as art director for the sporty kicks brand dropped in November, and while the focus there was prints on prints on prints, these ads are all about color on color on color. And we are INTO IT.
Is Rihanna fronting the next issue of 'Vogue'?

NAVY! Are you sitting down? No? OK, we'll wait. (*cue Jeopardy music*) That was for your own safety. Now brace for impact because it looks like your fearless leader, Rihanna, has MAAAYYYBE just landed herself the cover of Vogue yet again. (For the third time, NBD.) And we don't recall hearing ANY jumped-the-gun mumblings about this one, so congrats on keeping such a MAJORLY BIG DEAL under serious wraps, Vogue staffers. Until now, at least!
What could possibly be more fun than a scavenger hunt starring Selena Gomez? (I know what you're thinking: "NOTHING!") Well, you're wrong, because here's what: A scavenger hunt starring Selena Gomez *WAIT FOR IT* that you can play in your PJs from the comfort of your couch! Obviously. Even though her Adidas NEO spring collection doesn't drop until February 12, Selly's giving fans a chance to peep AND win select pieces from the line through an online scavenger hunt for the next seven days. #BEST
Yesterday, Selena hit us with a preview video wearing what we hope/pray/believe to be a few of her new items: a sweetheart-cut bustier crop top, a floral bomber jacket, and some black-and-white striped pants. Starting today, links to more exclusive videos (shot by Selena herself) will be hidden across Selly and NEO's social media pages—and (SPOILER ALERT) we found the first one for you!
Looks from the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's Spring 2014 collection
Lauren Conrad is a master of time management. Seriously, I'm convinced she's found a way to squeeze more than 24 hours out of each day. How else to explain her ability to run a lifestyle empire, plan a wedding, AND design a super-cute spring line for her LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's collection? It seems like only yesterday that Conrad was rolling out a slew of new outfits for the retail chain (OK, technically, it was December, but that wasn't THAT long ago), and now she's back with more new clothes that just may force us to dust off our flip-flops a tad prematurely.
In case you needed another excuse to get excited for spring (LOL #BYEPOLARVORTEX), Katy Perry will be releasing a limited edition of her third fragrance, Killer Queen, made specially for warmer days. The bottling of the new scent, called Killer Queen Oh So Sheer, maintains the same gem-shaped design as Killer Queen—but instead of ruby-red packaging, Oh So Sheer has a light lavender tint. But don't worry, Katy Cats, your golden clan crest still sits at the top. #represent
Photos: Vanity Fair/The Academy Awards
Does Vanity Fair know something we don't? Or did they just, like, happen to think, almost exactly one month before the Academy Awards, that a long, slinky gold dress was the perfect choice for our new favorite "It" Girl, Lupita Nyong'o? To be fair, we've yet to see something that doesn't look good on Nyong'o, but this dress is kind of suspiciously foreshadowing, considering the season (awards, not winter).
Yesterday, VF released a sneak peek (and by "sneak peek," it appears they mean the entire three-page pull-out) of their 20th annual Hollywood Issue cover, which was shot by famed photog Annie Leibovitz and "celebrates a year of spectacular film with a group of distinguished actors." Despite the fact that Lupita didn't make the front fold, we certainly think she's the center of attention.
Back in November, Miley Cyrus released a few teaser videos for her upcoming Bangerz Tour. There was twerking, of course, and plenty of wagging tongues, and one giant, dancing foam finger. Everyone in the videos was decked out in puff-painted, homemade Miley-gear, and now, just as we'd hoped/dreamed/guessed (#psychics), it looks like her official tour merch will have that exact same kind of DIY vibe.
Miley tweeted a few sneak peek pics of her Bangerz swag this weekend, which included a "Marry Me Miley" tee (colored with markers, covered in emoji-style icons and modeled by her BFF/personal assistant, Cheyne "Bew Bew" Thomas), foam finger nail wraps (fingers on fingers is so #meta) and one very cheeky (pun intended) scribbled-on pair of tighty-whitey briefs (which, BTW, has the same open-mouth design as the T-shirt Cyrus wore in one of her tour videos).
Happy Valentine's Day! Love, Nicki
Flowers? YAWN. Chocolate? No, thank you. Valentine's Day is right around the corner and, luckily for all you clueless dudes out there, Nicki Minaj is here to save you from the dog house. This year, Minaj has done the world a serious solid by providing every guy with the perfect holiday gift: jewelry. What's that you say? You haven't been saving up? You don't think you can afford luxe bling for your lady? You didn't even know it was February already?! Well, relax. Because not only is Nicki's new line of accessories totally fun, but it's totally affordable, too! Yeah, we know. She's the best.
Beyonce at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

• Celebs gave us a LOT to look at during the 2014 Grammy Awards. Bey and Jay kicked things off with a super-sexy performance, everyone and their mother decided to wear a hat and tons of stars gave us major nail art envy with their outfit-coordinating digits.
• Even though she's been talking about wanting to grow her hair out for months, Miley Cyrus debuted a new, shorter 'do the night before the Grammys. She also opted to turn her pixie platinum, and we have to say—the girl looks good.
• Beyonce gave hope to lazy girls everywhere by sporting wet hair for her sultry performance at the Grammys. Harry Styles also opted to forgo a blowdryer in promo pics for One Direction's new video for "Midnight Memories." Both stars totally rocked the fresh-out-the-shower look, but we want to know who YOU think rocked it better!
• ICYMI, Miley performed with Madonna during her Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged performance. But instead of sticking with one of her long-loved pantless leotards, Miley channeled her godmother, Dolly Parton, and opted for bedazzled double denim instead.
• Emma Watson made magic happen for Wonderland magazine and she didn't even use a wand. (We don't think.) Watson guest edited the newest issue of the stylish glossy and served up two very different, very high-fashion looks on dual covers.
