One Direction's That Moment ad.

Who here wants to smell like creamy musk and cucumbers? Anyone? What if I told you that Harry Styles wants you to smell like that? Probably changes your answer, right? Well, as it turns out...he does. All of One Direction does, in fact, which is why they added those *unique* smells to their upcoming That Moment fragrance line (in addition to cedarwood, violet, and "sparkling tangerine"—yum!). We already knew the line would build on their previous scent, the already successful Our Moment, AND that the perfume bottle would resemble a pink diamond wearing a crown. But the promise of creamy musk is certainly news to us—as is their dreamy, just-released print ad.
Pharrell is teaming up with Comme des Garcons.

Pharrell Williams, the great collaborator, has just added another joint project to his résumé: a unisex fragrance with Comme des Garcons. From Daft Punk to BAPE, he has a knack for bringing established entities into his creative ecosystem and helping bring forth a beautiful, refreshing take on something you already loved. But he's more than just the ultimate remix artist; his collaborative projects are so wildly successful because of his ability to marry his own original creative sensibilities with a keen eye for curation—he knows precisely the best elements of a sound or an aesthetic to elevate. For all of the above reasons, we're SO excited about this forthcoming scent. The only thing we're disappointed about is: We sort of feel like we should have seen this coming.
If you have two hands and a smartphone, chances are you've shown off your nail art on Instagram at LEAST once in your life. It's pretty much a given. But what if you could show off your Instagram pictures ON your nail art? Photos of your half-eaten cheeseburger or your #tbt baby pic plastered on your fingers for the whole world to see IRL. Well, thanks to NailSnaps and their genius Kickstarter campaign, that dream could very well become a possibility. The company promises to turn your smartphone pics into custom-made nail stickers—provided they earn enough money, of course. Quick, someone send them $40,000 RIGHT NOW.
If NailSnaps is able to change the face of nail art forever, there are a few celeb Instagram accounts we may have to borrow from. As much as my cat's face deserves to be a semi-permanent fixture on my manicure, the snapshots of the rich and famous are just a liiitle bit more interesting. Since we're VERY IMPATIENT, we already Photoshopped a few (OK, 12) of the famous pics we'd steal for ourselves. Just to, y'know, see how it'd look.

Theo James, Shailene Woodley, Ellie Goulding, and Christina Garibaldi on the set of MTV First.
In case you missed it, we played host to Ellie Goulding, Shailene Woodley, and Theo James last night for a special Divergent-themed edition of MTV First. We watched the premiere of Ellie's "Beating Heart" music video, played a few rounds of "Would You Rather," and discussed the art of kissing. What we didn't expect to get was a bit of beauty advice courtesy of Miss Goulding.

If you’ve ever wanted Lorde’s vampy beauty look, here’s your chance: Our favorite teen goth singer is collaborating with MAC Cosmetics on a limited-edition makeup line that drops this summer (#summergoth). Speaking about the collaboration, Lorde told The Cut, “I have loved MAC Cosmetics since I was a little kid. I remember saving up to buy my very first MAC lipstick [Snob] at 14, and it was used by about 20 of my friends! MAC has a very clear aesthetic, that has always felt fashion forward to me. So I was really excited to work with them on these products, which I use pretty much every day and night. I hope you will too.”

In the YouTube hair tutorial circles that I run in, Lauren Conrad is a hair god. She was the OG of braided bangs, showing off her braiding skills on The Hills. She was riding the ombre train way before it was a ~thing~, she dabbled in "Bardot bangs" and pink tips last spring, and, generally, she just has totally enviable, beachy waves. As an expert in all things related to LC's hair, imagine my complete shock when, yesterday, she debuted a shorter and sleeker new 'do! So long, curling iron. Welcome back, flat iron. If Lauren is into straight hair, I'm into straight hair (JK, but not really).

In case you missed the big, tall, red-headed news: Conan O'Brien is hosting the 2014 MTV Movie Awards! Yep, on April 13, Conan will be taking the stage, telling some jokes, and helping dole out awards for Movie of the Year, Best Cameo, Best Kiss, and more.
In honor of Conan and his floppy ginger coif, we searched high and low (on the internet) for redheads. Below you'll find an abridged guide to redheads in no particular order. Just a big ol' mob of enviable red tresses. Once you've finished scrolling you may have an urge to dye your 'do to match. Embrace the feeling—your new look will be totally perfect for your Movie Awards viewing party.

Nicki relaxing (LOL, get it?).

While Nicki Minaj is obviously not averse to posting revealing photos to Instagram (see: Halloween pasties, spring collection pasties, a majority of the selfies she posted in 2013), the series of photos she posted yesterday was not merely for insight into how she showers (though that's valuable knowledge also, IMHO). The photos were multipurpose and well-executed: They grabbed your attention because she's shirtless, and clearly she's still off wigs/ into her natural hair. Also, these photos announced that *drumrollll* she might have a new line of hair-care products coming out. Most of my Instagrams are like, "Look, I have a friend." I need to step my IG game up, it seems.
YUP. These photos contain way more than a topless woman. Let's break it down.
