Haim have always seemed like they’d be a blast to hang out and play dress up with, and now, we have confirmation of that, thanks to a recent shoot with The Coveteur. While our favorite sister-rock trio was getting ready to attend Chloe’s show at Paris Fashion Week, the closet photo blog captured the group’s wardrobe, provided by the French fashion house. Even though we usually see Haim in cut-off shorts, booties, and leather jackets, the band wears polished tailored pieces just as well. And, if you ask us, Chloe and Haim are pretty much the perfect pairing of sensibilities. They both have an enviable laid-back cool.

Leopard-print hair is not an easy look to incorporate into daily life, but that didn't stop Nick Cannon and Dennis Rodman from trying. Cannon is the latest member of the close-cropped, leopard-print hair club. His initiation was two days ago. He joins founding member Dennis Rodman, who was known for sporting (get it?) the style in 1998.
Cannon revealed in his Instagram caption that the process took five hours, but, as we all know, looking swaggy takes time. His hair is longer and curlier than Dennis', so the spots aren't as obvious—they could just as easily pass for polka dots. Dennis' spots, on the other hand, are starkly contrasted against his short bleached hair.

Hair is officially the biggest accessory for spring, at least in the world of editorial spreads with our favorite female musicians. We kind of called this one after seeing Solange’s angled 'fro in a Harper’s Bazaar feature and V Magazine’s very hairy music issue covers—now Essence magazine has confirmed our inkling with their May 2014 issue dedicated to the topic of natural hair. Fittingly, the magazine tapped Solange, Erykah Badu, and Ledisi—ladies whose hair (and music and style) we’ve always admired—to be the alternate cover stars.
Predictably, they all nailed it. Solange and Badu wore toned-down makeup, all the better to show off their wild curls. In a behind-the-scenes video, we get a closer look at their outfits. For the shoot, Solange stuck with a pastel palette, wearing a reverse-racerback, white lace crop top and mint crocheted skirt on the cover and an ostrich-feather-covered strapless dress and a pink floral jacket inside the issue.
Emma Watson at the 'Noah' premiere in London.

It's no secret that Emma Watson's red carpet style is on point—I mean, she wore pants under a backless gown to the 2014 Golden Globes. She's not playing around. What was not so obvious until recently, however, is her equally envious ability to accessorize. We noted her jewelry collection at this year's Oscars, but she's also started accessorizing her hair and, TBH, each style she tries pairs perfectly with her outfit and doesn't overwhelm at all. We bow down.
At last night's London premiere of Noah, Emma wore silver and gold jewels on the right side of her updo. They appeared to be casually thrown in, but they transform a relatively simple look to a sleek one. Hi, perfect prom 2014 hair inspiration.
Unless this is some kind of April Fools joke, Lauren Conrad has taken a purple plunge. I hope it's not a joke—her hair, as always, looks perfect. Like, I want to go to the drugstore right now, buy some purple dye, and color my hair in the bathroom. Sorry the sinks are stained purple, coworkers, but this was a hair emergency—bye boring blonde, hello pretty purple!
It was only a few weeks ago that we were complimenting LC's short, springy 'do and now she's taken the look to an entirely different level. This pastel purple isn't the first unnatural color Lauren has tried out—she's gone both pink and multi-color before—but it's the first time she's committed to having the shade for more than a weekend. In a blog post, she explains that while she normally uses temporary dye, this time she went with semi-permanent, which lasts for six to eight weeks. A bold move, but one I respect (and envy), since it looks so good.
It seems like just yesterday that Lauren Conrad was gracing the cover of Allure and revealing her deepest beauty secrets (JK, it was two days ago!). One such secret involved one of LC's best assets—her hair, of course. "I can't remember the last time I didn't have extensions," she told the magazine. "Extensions are great. And they've come so far in the last few years." We read that and naturally assumed she was just talking about, y'know, the gorgeous hair on her head. But apparently Lauren likes her fake tresses to be pretty AND multifunctional...namely, doubling as makeshift unibrows.
Madonna shows off her armpit.

Madonna has been on a roll this week in the Instagram department. A few days ago, she posted a picture of herself dressed as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones—complete with miniature dragons on her shoulders—which was, obviously, awesome. And then last night, she posted another eyebrow-raising selfie, this time featuring her beyond fuzzy armpit with the caption "Long hair...... Don't Care!!!!!!" (quite the opposite of Taylor Swift's recent "short hair, don't care" Instagram phenomenon).
It's hard to tell if Madonna's hairy pit is a result of feminism, laziness, or sheer publicity, although her hashtags—#artforfreedom #rebelheart #revolutionoflove—suggest The Queen of Pop is just being her typically anarchistic and too-cool-for-school self. The internet is already semi-exploding over the furry pic, but there actually is quite a long history of female celebs who have dared to expose their unshaved pits.
