Get Hayley Williams' watch earrings!

In the video for "Ain't It Fun," Paramore's latest single, Hayley Williams and Co. set out to break the "most world records in a music video." They smash alarm clocks with guitars, catch feathers, destroy vinyl records, and run backwards blindfolded while carrying stuffed animals. Sure, we were interested to see if they'd break any records, but we were more interested in Hayley's blunt bob. It's still bright (duh), but the shorter length means that her earring game needs to be on-point. Predictably, it is. Big time. Even better than merely gazing at her dangling accessories? You can get 'em yourself. Yeah, NBD, we have all the deets on the earrings, including where to find them!
Yep. Probably could've guessed this.

And now for the s*** you didn't see. Or rather couldn't, because there isn't even an alternate universe in which a director would take a tight shot of someone's EAR for a high-profile, nationally televised performance. To the surprise of, I'm sure, literally no one, Miley Cyrus owns sparkly gold earpieces emblazoned with teeny-tiny cannabis leaves. It's no secret that Miles has a thing for Mary Jane. She wears her love of weed on her sleeve. And her halter top. And her backpack. And, of course, in lieu of an acceptance speech at this year's MTV EMA, she lit up a joint onstage. But what you might not have known or noticed was that Miles' earpieces, which she's used for countless performances from iHeartRadio to MTV Unplugged, advertise her 420 ethos, as well.

Last night at the Grammys, Pharrell's hat was all the rage, so to speak, making rare note of forestry on the red carpet, and even garnering its own Twitter account. But while his pairing of the Smokey hat (or, to him, "military inspired") with an Adidas jacket may have seemed random, there was a very specific method to his madness: His ensemble paid homage to the video for Malcolm McLaren's 1982 single "Buffalo Gals," written after the legendary punk svengali/visioneer first attended a Zulu Nation park jam in the Bronx. In essence, Pharrell was bigging up that very creative moment when punk and hip-hop were cross-pollinating and speaking to one another, both musically and sartorially.
McLaren opens the "Buffalo Gals" video in the very same park ranger hat and khaki safari jacket, bopping around between shots of a very formal square dance in a basketball court, and slightly less formal B-boys clad in Pharrell's exact Adidas gear. "Buffalo gals go around the outside," McLaren raps, with background vocals and scratches by members of the Zulu Nation and the World's Famous Supreme Team. As style collisions go, Skateboard P.'s ensemble makes sense in this context, even if it didn't on the carpet.
The 2014 Grammy Awards were all about amazing performances, stunning fashions, and creating wonderful memories that will last us forever. JK, the night was like 99% about Pharrell's hat! And Madonna's hat! And Pharrell's OTHER hat! From the second the stars started to fill out the red carpet, we couldn't help notice that hip headgear was simply everywhere. Take a look at ALL of tonight's millinery masterpieces:

We're going to go ahead and deem Pharrell's hats the real stars of the Grammys. I mean, hellooo. Just LOOK at his red carpet hat, the first one of two he sported this evening. Twitter appropriately exploded as people started drawing comparisons ranging from Smokey Bear to Canadian Mountie to Arby's logo. He changed for his "Get Lucky" performance, opting for a more conservative, albeit equally large and awesome, fedora. But, c'mon, Pharrell rocks no matter WHAT sits atop his beautiful head.
Madonna at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

When Madonna hit the red carpet, she told E!'s Giuliana Rancic that her son David Ciccone Ritchie, who was by her side, picked out her outfit. The pair struck an adorable duo pose in matching suits and hats, with David accessorizing with patent spats and the increasingly popular lapel brooch for men. His mom, of course, went full glitter: She's been essentially nowhere without her grill as of late, whether photo shoots or Instagram—we wouldn't be surprised if she wore it under her mask skiing or during yoga.
Pharrell Williams looks real good on the 2014 Grammys red carpet, eh?

“Oh snap, I’m running late—let me just grab these clothes from the bottom of my closet and bounce,” Pharrell Williams said, 20 minutes before he showed up on the Grammys red carpet looking like Dudley Do Right-meets-Run DMC (though the interwebz is dead set on Smokey Bear). No, but really, he is probably the only person at the awards show who can say, “I woke up like dih.”
Selena Gomez wearing a bindi.

Sooo, I bet Selena Gomez is having a pretty weird day? She's probably mentally preparing herself for the barrage of Bieber-related questions she'll be asked for the next three to four months. If it's any consolation, even through all that, she's 100% the most stylish person I've ever seen at a gas station. Like, usually when I need to fill up/grab snacks, I only see basketball shorts and sweatshirts (fine, it's when I look in the gas station bathroom mirror), but Selly really has a great look going on here. Let's discuss.
First of all, great haircut, Sel! We know she'd been toying with the idea of cutting her hair into a bob, but this shoulder-length 'do is really good, too. Then there's her nude bodysuit, which she's accessorized with two tasseled Kendra Scott necklaces. Very glamorous graduation chic, IMHO. The most crucial part of her on-point look, though, is the return of her bindi.

Oh SNAP. The 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet has just started to really pick up, but as far as we're concerned, Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn has already shut this thing down. Granted, our favorite Lupita Nyong'o hasn't done the step-and-repeat yet, but there's really not much that can beat what Miss Gunn has brought to the party. No, we're not talking about her navy blue Monique Lhullier gown (though it is beautiful—that athletic neckline!). We're talking about DAT CLUTCH.
When designers pull out all the stops to outfit Hollywood's biggest stars, as was the case at last night's Golden Globe Awards, accessories have a tendency to get lost in the shuffle. Luckily for us detail-oriented folks, there were a few style sidekicks that earned themselves a starring role in the night's most memorable moments. And no, we're not strictly talking about jewelry and beaded clutches here. We're talking about accessories in the unconventional sense of the word. Take a look at the biggest scene-stealers...
AMY POEHLER'S 'RANDY' WIG

During the three-hour telecast's mid-show lull, our reliable hostesses (all hail Tina and Amy) performed a little stunt to kick us out of our Seamless-delivery food coma. As Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick showed off their Miss Golden Globe daughter, Sosie Bacon, Tina Fey interrupted to introduce the world to her illegitimate love child Randy, a.k.a. Mr. Golden Globe, a.k.a. Amy Poehler in a flippy Justin Bieber-esque wig. It was one of the best gags of the night, and that highlighted 'do stole the show. P.S. Does anyone else think Amy was one of the hottest guys in attendance? Just me? *ACHEM* Moving on...
Rihanna and her gold tooth.

Rihanna got herself a new accessory for 2014: a gold tooth! She debuted it on Instagram, with a caption that called attention to her makeup, but we all know she was showing off that glittering canine. (I guess it does match her golden eye shadow!) Rih has now joined the gold tooth club, which also boasts high-profile members Ke$ha and Lana Del Rey. Unlike K-money and Lana, Rih opted not to cover her entire tooth, placing the cap closer to the center of her bite. Oooh, looks like the club already has a rebel! #reblfleur How often does the gang meet? Do they discuss where to buy gold caps or, like, any accessories? If I buy one, will I get my membership card immediately? Because if so, I have to run to the store NOW.
