While many people put on their Sunday best to celebrate Easter, a number of celebrities got into the holiday spirit in a more playful way: with bunny ears! Beyonce, Mariah Carey, and Rita Ora all accessorized with ears, while Rihanna celebrated in a different way.

We've kept track of what Harry Styles wears on his heads for a long time around these parts. I keep an updated list of every hat, headband, or mask that touches his flowing brown curls—that's not for work, BTW, just more of a personal thing. Anyway. While his luscious locks usually fly free in One Direction's music videos, it looks like his headgear collection may have infiltrated the video for "You & I."
In case you weren't aware, there's a new 1D video dropping tomorrow. The band has been teasing the video—Harry's clip went up today and within 10 seconds he has three different things on his head.
There's the furry hat that he pairs with a shearling-lined coat.
Pieces from Katy Perry's Claire's collection.
Anyone who has ever shopped at Claire's knows that it is the one-stop shop for fun and colorful accessories. So it made perfect sense when Katy Perry—the most fun and colorful human in the world—announced that she was going to design a collection for the store. Ever since we heard this fabulous bit of news a few months ago, we've been trying to imagine the holographic bling Katy would bring to the table. Would there be Egyptian necklaces? Prism earrings? Jungle-cat rings? It's been keeping us up at night, to be honest.
Well, stop imagining and start looking, my friends. Claire's just released a sneak peek of Katy's Prism collection, and it's like a dream come true. It looks like the line is a mix of prismatic shine and "Roar" jungle vibes (everyone knows Katy loves a good theme). In the sparkle department, we get bedazzled bobby pins, a charm bracelet, and a huge Prism pendant necklace, all sticking to the triangular motif of Katy's Prismatic World Tour. There are also nameplate-esque necklaces, only instead of names, they say "Roar" and "Champion." I can't tell what the middle one says, but I'm guessing, like, "Tiger" or "Fighter."
There are few pairings in this world that go together as well as a burger and fries. It’s such a classic that there’s at least one restaurant in every neighborhood—though in some places there’s like 10 (hello Hollywood)—serving up their special take on the combo, even branching out for vegans, vegetarians, and pescatarians. So, for this installment of Food Friday, we decided to honor the all-American meal with some inspired jewelry.
How much does Rihanna's necklace weigh, TBH?

It's no secret that Rihanna is all about #phreshofftherunway looks. She's also all about pieces that are #CCcertified AND has shown an affinity for oversized accessories in the past. Thus, a necklace that made its grand debut just last week at Chanel's Fall 2014 runway show is obviously an ideal accessory. Especially if it's a lock so big that it could secure a yacht.
Rihanna must've called dibs on the padlock necklace last week as she was making friends/posing for scrapbook photos during Paris Fashion Week, and Uncle Karl must've hooked her up. Between the gold bike chain and the size of the lock, Rih's neck must be exhausted. What kind of exercises are needed to prepare your neck for such a weighty accessory? Is this called a LOCKet? I have a lot of questions.

Masks: They've been around forever! Perhaps even literally since anthropologists haven't been able to pinpoint the origin of face coverings (yet). The world's oldest known surviving mask is made of stone, dates to 7000 B.C., and currently lives at Musee Biblique in France, but there's no telling whether people were shielding their mugs well before that or not.
Masks come in all shapes and sizes, from lacquered, half-face, Phantom of the Opera joints to flashy but flimsy full-dome luchador numbers. Much of the time they're purely aesthetic—a visual aid to some form of entertainment (see: Jabbawockeez) or meant to conceal identity (Anonymous' Guy Fawkes)—but they're functional accessories, too. A mask is a muzzle for Hannibal Lecter, a kind of painkiller for Bane, and far less terrifyingly (well, to some), a facial shield for Lebron James, who has been wearing a mask during games since breaking his nose last month.
Katy Perry loves her some headbands.

If there's one thing Katy Perry's good at (I know, there are actually a million things she's good at, just stay with me), it's taking style risks and completely OWNING whatever look she decides to try out. Her latest shocker came when she chopped off her hair a few weeks ago into a bob with blunt bangs. That's not where her retro lean stops, though. She's also been integrating cutesy, bow-laden headbands into her steez.
Sure, the Oscars are glamorous and esteemed and a major cultural moment, but I think I'd rather attend an Oscars after-party than the ceremony itself. The casual atmosphere of the post-show bashes is way less "I'd like to thank the Academy" and way more (to quote Matthew McConaughey), "Alright, alright, alriiiiight." We saw some pretty amazing looks on the red carpet last night for sure, but the parties brought out some new fashions that totally reflected the more fun phase of the evening. Check out some of our faves:
LUPITA NYONG'O IN MIU MIU

After winning big last night, Lupita swapped out her princess Prada gown for this flirty Miu Miu dress. The sea foam fringe and buckled straps reminded us of a day spent at the beach—the perfect image for a first-time Oscar winner. Lupita held onto the same jewelry she wore at the ceremony and clutched her new statuette for the entire night (totally what I would do, too).
Man oh MAN. Is it just us, or were last night's Academy Awards the best they've been in a long time? We're talking Ellen's ace hosting skills, an amazingly talented batch of winners, and don't even get us started on the red carpet glitz and glamour. The gowns and tuxes were wonderful in all their designer glory, but we couldn't help noticing the A+ accessories and details. Check out some of our favorite style finishing touches of the evening:

Emma Watson was a sparkly masterpiece from head to toe last night. Her metallic Vera Wang dress was mostly responsible for her glittery presence, but her jewelry certainly helped out a LOT. Her diamond ear cuff was the perfect choice for her whole goth-at-the-Oscars vibe, as was the sizable aggregation of rings adoring her fingers. Emma totally could have stepped off the red carpet and into a street fight without having to change her outfit at all, which is pretty much the best kind of transitional fashion.
Pharrell and his rainbow of hats.

You guys. Pharrell Williams' hat game is just getting better and better. We didn't think that was possible, seeing as the oversized millinery he wore to the Grammys is already more famous than you or I will ever be. But then again, we didn't realize the now-infamous Vivienne Westwood accessory comes in a variety of bold colors, many of which Pharrell has been wearing lately. What's better than a brown Buffalo hat? A FUCHSIA Buffalo hat.
