If you’re like us, your eyes were GLUED to Rihanna's twitter page yesterday afternoon as she engaged in quite the Twitter battle with fellow singer/songwriter, Teyana Taylor. The two threw down in a twitter spat that had the interwebz buzzing, and while the world twatched the ladies hurtle insults at one another, RiRi seized the moment to show off her upcoming fall RiRi Hearts MAC collection. Checkmate, Rihanna.
With just days left until we can get finally our hands on her autumn line, Rihanna teased a ton of snaps of the highly anticipated makeup range on her Instagram. And after seeing these pics, we CANNOT WAIT to get our hands on this stuff. If this collection is anything like her former one—yes, we're STILL obsessing over RiRi Woo—then beauty fans of the world, we are in for a treat!

Zooey Deschanel, long-reigning nail art queen of the red carpet, did not disappoint at this year's Emmys (duh). Zooey showed off her mod black-and-white manicure on Instagram, which was done by her long-time mani collaborator, Tom Bachik. Bachik did Zooey's Emmy nails last year, when she paired retro TV nails with a light blue tulle gown.
Rita Ora in her first campaign for Rimmel.
YAAAS, this is a collab we can def get behind: Rita Ora and Rimmel London are teaming up to bring us a new makeup collection that'll launch in February. The collection will focus on nail polish and lipstick, which makes 100% sense considering Rita is QUEEN of the bold red lip. She tweeted her excitement yesterday, writing, "The whole worlds [gonna] wear Red lipstick! #myMission @rimmellondonuk #yeeeeaaaaahhhhbaby." Her mission is a daunting one but one the ladies of the world will be eager to join when it's February and there's a new Rita Ora-approved lipstick to brighten up their dreary, winter-induced look.

Our favorite music artists have been cashing in on their fame with their very own fragrance lines for years. From Jennifer Lopez to Britney Spears, Rihanna to Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry to Beyonce and MORE, the ladies have been taking over and spreading their delicious scents worldwide. Lately, though, the fellas are getting into the action, too, and of course we couldn't be more excited. I meannnn, who wouldn't want to douse themselves in Justin Bieber or the One Direction dudes' signature fragrances?!? Luckily for us, the next stud making a moment of his own is none other than Pharrell Williams.
Yeah, yeah, we know New York Fashion Week is officially over, but we needed a FULL weekend of recovery before we dove in and picked out the top nail art looks from all the shows—and it also happens to be Manicure Monday. (How perfect!) We have to admit, though, that this year we definitely saw designs of a whole different variety. Sure, we peeped some straight-up half moon manis (Peter Som!) and glitter gradients (Nicole Miller!), but overall we were incredibly impressed with how much designers were willing to experiment with their tips. From mechanical 3D nails to purposely-imperfect manis, we found 10 shows that totally took nail art to the next level. Check 'em out below!

OK, this image alone speaks volumes about the diversity of nail designs The Blonds had in just ONE NYFW show. Their Tweety Bird-inspired collection certainly included some on-theme bright yellow designs, but they also incorporated clear acrylics and—get this—a mechanical accent nail that came with a clear hinged door (top right). UH HUH, you can thank CND for that lovely creation.
Rihanna, behind the scenes at her Rogue fragrance shoot.

We've seen the ads for Rihanna's fourth fragrance, Rogue, but now we have some behind-the-scenes (YAAAS) photos and video of the badgal gettin' ready for the shoot. While the official photos capture RiRi's smolder sufficiently, the video only enhances it. It's not needed, necessarily, but it's definitely appreciated. Also appreciated? The shot of Rihanna wearing a kerchief, LOL. The video gives us a glimpse into Rihanna's life off of camera, and she chooses to wear the preferred head-covering of grandmothers. The video takes place when she had her blonde hair, though, there's no intel (yet!) as to what she wears currently to cover her 'do which is, of course, a mullet. In the behind-the-scenes photos, she also wears a gauzy white headband, which seems to only be to protect her hair from her makeup, but it also just looks good. Like, if a headband I wore ever looked that good, I'd be really happy 4eva. The pictures and video are below, so see for yourself how good Rihanna looks, no matter what's in/over/on her hair!
