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!

The first official ad from RiRi Hearts MAC

Rihanna is rollin’ it ALL out this month, y’all! First, we got Rogue: the “flirty, sensual Oriental” fourth signature scent from Miss Fenty—and now, we’ve been given access to both her brand new River Island clothing line AND the official ad for the latest installment in her RiRi <3 MAC makeup collab—in the SAME DAY! Basically, she’s making it really easy for members of her #NAVY to become walking Rih replicas (Rihplicas?), without having to deal with, like, a bunch of crazy plastic surgery. #aintnobodygottimeforthat #contouring

Justin Bieber

That's right, folks. Justin Bieber has been topping charts, selling out arenas, and sending ladybabies and grown women (what has two thumbs and bookmarks KidRauhl?) into tailspins with his silky golden pipes, shirtless Instagrams, perma-furrowed brow, but not until this past Sunday, after three full-length studio albums, two international tours, and countless awards, has he sat front row at a New York Fashion Week show. Yup. Until yesterday, the Biebs had been a mere casual observer of Fashion Week, making a #veryrare appearance for Fashion's Night Out but not (yet) perching alongside the runway. And this weekend (perhaps making up for lost time?), Justin took in TWO major Spring 2014 shows: Y-3 (fist bumping with Yohji himself afterward) and Opening Ceremony's very first runway show.

Rihanna's Rogue campaign.

Rihanna's fourth fragrance, Rogue, is hurr! After teasing us with two different print ads in July, we hadn't heard about the "flirty, sensual Oriental" scent in a while, but now we can spritz ourselves with it, carry it around with us, and moisturize with it. Yep, the scent comes in three different size bottles, plus a roller ball, and a body lotion. As if that wasn't enough, with any $69 purchase (that's one 4.2 oz bottle of the scent), you get a free clutch that matches the collection and has a brass-knuckle handle. Very tough. Very Rihanna.

Rihanna's perfume site also gives us some more deets on the scent and its campaign, though no sign (yet!) of the men's fragrance that Rih had once mentioned. The fragrance's tagline is "Push boundaries. Be bold. Go Rogue." which is def a motto Rihanna already lives by, big time. We are also given some info on the scent's notes, which includes lemon blossom, pink peppercorns, juicy plums, suede, sensual musk, and a lot more. Like, many more. With thirteen notes listed, it's Rih's most elaborate scent so far. Nude, for instance, has 10 notes. Steppin' up her scent game.

The set (plus the free clutch!) is available on Rih's perfume site, as well as at Macy's, Dillard's, and Belk. As for that men's scent, Rihanna promised it was coming soon, so we'll keep our eyes peeled for any info. And obviously, keep you updated.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
