The countdown to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is ON, you guys! You already know how we've been keeping close tabs on all the amazing fashion stuff surrounding book number two in the trilogy, from dishing on the character poster outfits to discovering the mastermind behind Katniss's epic wedding dress. But now, here's some seriously exciting beauty news for you: COVERGIRL has inked a deal with the film, marking the makeup giant's very first movie partnership ever! Huge, right? This means we'll be seeing a print and TV ad campaign inspired by the fantasy flick, as well as an entire line of Capitol Collection beauty products. It all makes total sense, considering Hunger Games on-set makeup artists used the brand's products on Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the cast to create what COVERGIRL calls "luxurious, high couture looks."
Remember how Demi Lovato told us on "Live From MTV" her only form of rebellion was tattoos and hair color? Welp, she covered the tonsorial portion last week with her new blonde dye job, and NOW, she's racked up another tatt. Scrawled on the back of her left shoulder, the ink reads, "now I'm a warrior"—a lyric from "Warrior," the last track of the record. Demi tweeted a picture of her fresh body art with the caption, "Thanks @BangBang! Album release day!!! #DEMI." YUP, the ink is in celebration of her new album, DEMI. AWWwwww!

BRB guys. We're just STILL having a heart attack (get it?) from Demi Lovato gracing our offices with her radiant presence yesterday.The golden-throated pop star stopped by our Times Square headquarters less than 24 hours ago to chat LIVE with MTV News' Christina Garibaldi and a few lucky Lovatics in celebration of the official release of her brand new album DEMI. Along with talking about her eponymously titled record, Miss Lovato played a few DEMI themed games, including one with a similar idea as Pictionary that went hilariously awry. Apparently, our girl D, like us, has a pretty lewd sense of humor, but it's her ability to balance that with looking totally poised and professional that makes us love her so much.

Whew, anyone else feeling tired?! It's only Wednesday, and it's already been a whirlwind week in Rihanna-land, between her "#CCcertified" Kaiser tee, her new River Island sneak peek video and then, less than 24 hours ago, the campaign itself. Not to mention, those photos that surfaced yesterday of the singer rocking a platinum bob! Although the 'do later turned out to be a wig, that's not the only hair change RiRi has up her sleeve these days. Last night, she sent L.A. paparazzi into a frenzy with her brand new long, glossy, blonde weave. With a reverse ombré hue and Barbie-worthy waves, let's just cut to the chase and say we're officially obsessed.
What happens when you combine One Direction, Little Mix, nail art, and (our favorite pastime!) sleeping?? Look no further than the epic collision of awesomeness above. What's going on here? Welp, first off, our faaaaavorite Brit-Irish boy band member Zayn Malik is SLEEPING *pause for a beat* SHIRTLESS, but more specificially, he's just gotten a prank manicure from his girlfriend, Little Mix's Perrie Edwards. On one hand, we're all, "Fiiiiine, we'll face facts that Z is spoken for," but on the other, the Bieber's Girlfriend-esque first-person perspective of Perrie's snap gives us the opportunity (if even for a split-second) to pretend that this is OUR hand holding Zayn's and OUR evil genius behind his mid-slumber manicure. That is, until take one look at the nail wraps' packaging... DOH. There she is!
Thanks to the release of the star-studded Great Gatsby film (see: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan) this past weekend, there's been non-stop chatter about the literary classic as of late. Suddenly, we started to feel super nostalgic for all the books we were forced to read in high school (and how we totally didn't appreciate them while we were there...oops). To honor all those awesome English teachers during our most tumultuous teen years, we decided to round up some of the most popular books and transform them into nail art! (Don't worry, there's no quiz at the end.)
'THE GREAT GATSBY' BY F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
Of course, we have to start with the inspiration behind this post: The Great Gatsby itself. This nail artist decided to take the signature blue cover art and reinterpret it into an AMAZING five-part nail design, complete with the floating face, title, byline, and city skyline. We give her major props for the painstakingly on-point replication of the typography and serious attention to detail. Shall we say she, erm, killed it?
Demi Lovato lets her hair down for her Wango Tango performance.

We know Demi Lovato is a master of switching up her beauty look. One day she could be feeling a bold brow and brunette top knot, the next day, she's makeup-less with new shoulder-length hair. Welp, the recently blonde Demi is at it again, this time confining her beauty acrobatics to ONE NIGHT: Saturday's Wango Tango concert in Los Angeles! Demi started her night at the SoCal summer music kick-off with a sweepy, sophisticated updo on the red carpet. It perfectly showcased her pristine, porcelain skin and that KILLER smoky eye situation. But when D hit the stage later in the night, she opted for a different hairstyle than the one she arrived with.
Hayley Williams at the Radio 104.5 Birthday Show this weekend.

Anyone who's seen her all-orange MAC makeup collab already knows that Hayley Williams is a TOTAL daredevil when it comes to her onstage performance makeup. If you ask us, the flame-haired singer is one of the few people in the world who can rock bright coral eyeshadow and tangerine lipstick—together!—and not look like she got ready in the dark. In fact, she manages to look, well, unexpectedly awesome?! But leave it to the Paramore frontwoman to push the beauty boundaries yet again this weekend, swapping classic makeup go-tos like winged eyeliner for smudgy paint splashed all over her face and arms. During Paramore's epic performance at Radio 104.5's birthday show in New Jersey, it's honestly hard to tell which was more attention-grabbing: the band's high-flying rendition of "Misery Business," or Hayley's bright blue face paint across her eyes. Who knows, she might be taking cues from previous face paint offenders like Lady Gaga or Ke$ha or even classic icons like David Bowie, but Hayley's clearly owning the look herself.
Demi Lovato dyed her hair blonde again.

Well, well, well. If it isn't Demi Lovato altering her hair yet again. In a little over one year, we've watch the "Heart Attack" singer take her hairstyle the full 360 degrees. The tonsorial acrobatics we've seen from this girl are just...exemplary to say the least. From dying it blonde back in February of last year to getting pink tips to dying those tips blue. *takes deeeeep breath* THEN to bringing back the bangs from her youth to taking her look to a dark brunette, cropping her mane at shoulder-length, and NOW going back to blonde.
By now you've probably peeped ALL the insane Met Gala red carpet looks, but have you seen the nail art?! Everyone from Katy Perry to Rita Ora to Nicole Richie sported super ornate manis that we NEED to discuss. KP matched her embellished Dolce & Gabbana ensemble with equally decked-out nails. She layered blue and pink glitter over gold polish and finished the look with gold pyramid studs and ruby gems. WERK.
