Dear Robert Pattinson’s New Goatee,
Look, I know we don’t really know each other that well, but I’ve got a bone to pick with you, sir. You’re new around here, I get that. But first impressions are hard to change and my first impression of you and your finely-tuned shape is, well, not great. I don’t necessarily want to make you feel unwelcome, but like, what exactly are you doing on R. Patz’s face? Why are you here? What is your purpose?
The unkempt beard was one thing. That, we could at least relate to—because TBH, shaving (your face, legs, etc.) can be a total time suck and sometimes it’s just SO much easier to let your follicles run free for a while, you know? Also, I don't believe for a minute that you're around for a role, so don't try to play that card with me. As far as I’m concerned, ~all~ characters can be conquered by a prosthetic facial piece. I mean, you saw Tom Hanks in Castaway, right? There is no way that man grew a curly blond beard on his own.
Katy Perry on set at her COVERGIRL shoot.

Now that Katy Perry is the newest face of COVERGIRL, she’s got some business to attend to. We imagine that includes things like experimenting with different shades of eye shadow, creating some sort of prismatic lip-illusion and just generally looking really pretty. Man, life as a COVERGIRL sounds hard, right? *sigh* But before she gets down to the nitty-gritty, Katy decided to have some fun by taking over the cosmetics giant’s Instagram account earlier today and only snapping photos of cats. JK! But that would have been hilarious.
SCUURT! Jennifer Lawrence just casually debuted a very short pixie cut via her Facebook fan page without, like, any sort of explanation or announcement at all. GIRL. If you're gonna go all temporary Beyonce on us like that, you have to at least give us some deets! Lawrence was snapped en route to a meet-up with her fellow Catching Fire cast mates for The Hunger Games’ Global Fan Day, and we’re really curious as to how the franchise’s loyal fans will feel about her chopping off Katniss Everdeen’s signature side-braid. I mean, she can obvi wear a wig if it hasn’t grown out by the time the next film rolls around, but seeing Katniss without her hair at an event for The Hunger Games kinda feels like pulling back the curtain on the Wizard in The Wizard of Oz, amirite? Kind of?
Rita Ora at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards.

Another day, another 'do for Rita Ora! Last night at the Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards, where she won Musician Of The Year, Rita debuted a new, tousled platinum coif. Though she changes her hair on the regular (remember the colored chunks from a few weeks ago?), Rita has never gone quite this blonde before. In fact, the bright color stood in such stark contrast with her brows and red lip, that the whole thing is serving major Gwen Stefani vibes.
Rita, who dubbed herself the "#icequeen," wore a white, long-sleeved, lace Ermanno Scervino gown. If you're gonna wear white after Labor Day, may as well wear it head-to-toe, right? On that note, it's a good thing there wasn't a blizzard in London last night, since it would've been near-impossible to pluck Rita from a pile of snow. Bold lipstick notwithstanding.
MTV's Artist To Watch this week is none other than our fave barrette-wearing singer, Lorde. When Lorde was in New York recently, we had a chance to chat with her about her fashion choices and her ah-may-zing hair.
Lorde revealed that she's really into "goth vibes" (those vibes seem to be making the rounds: Rihanna's #ghettogoth steez, anyone?), even though she says the goth community may shun her. Don't exclude the lady holding strong at #1 on the Billboard charts for the fifth week in a row, goths!
The poster for Justin Bieber's The Key short film.

Up until now, the promo surrounding Justin Bieber's latest fragrance, The Key, involved silk sheets, sleeping, and a key. With the release of seemingly inexplicable The Key alarm clock app, we came to the conclusion that the entire campaign revolves around Bieber unlocking your door as you sleep and visiting you (IRL/in your dreams) and waking you up (hence the alarm clock). Today, Bieber tweeted a poster for a "short film" he's releasing for The Key. The perfume bottle and silk sheets are on the bottom half of the poster, but the top half introduces an entirely new element into the campaign: a girl who is not asleep, dreamin' of Bieber, but awake.
Rihanna's Viva Glam collection.

Dry those tears, RihannaNavy! Just when you thought Rihanna's holiday collection with MAC would be her last, she goes and announces that she's the new face of Viva Glam. Viva Glam lipstick was created by MAC in 1994 to benefit women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Every cent from each lipstick sold goes to the MAC AIDS Fund, which is why in recent years, the cosmetics giant has used the selling power of Lady Gaga, Cyndi Lauper and Nicki Minaj for its campaigns. Remember those pics of Nicki Minaj floating in a pool surrounded by giant lipsticks? That was for Viva Glam.
Rihanna posted a photo of her Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipglass to Instagram this morning. Both are sparkly red and bear a striking resemblance to RiRi Woo (which we obvi love). But Rihanna's got big shoes to fill, according to some stats from Nicki Minaj. Her Minajesty claims that her own Viva Glam lipstick was the number 1 selling lipstick of all time. We're not too worried, though: after all, RiRi Woo sold out in 3 hours.
Demi x The New Black.

Get excited, Lovatics (and general fans of nail art)! It’s your lucky day. Demi Lovato’s polish kit collaboration with The New Black has arrived earlier than anticipated and it’s everything we ever dreamed of (and more). The blue-haired singer and X Factor coach is forever flashing her on-point nail game (see here and here, for example), so when we heard that she’d be designing some stylish collections for the DIY-nail brand (alongside her ~personal~ manicurist), we were pretty pumped, to say the least. And while we thought we’d have to wait until November 1st to get a glimpse at the kits, it turns out they’re available online now! SQUEE!
