So many Nicki Minajs for Kmart!

At the beginning of November, before she decided to hibernate and leave us in the lurch, Nicki Minaj previewed one of the looks she'd be wearing in a commercial for her Kmart collection on Instagram. Well, that commercial was finally released, and it doesn't just feature Nicki in one outfit but multiple Nickis in multiple outfits! It's like a remake of Multiplicity starring Nicki Minaj! If you thought Lady Gaga wore a lot of wigs, just wait till you see how many Nicki manages to include in a 30-second commercial.

Lady Gaga for Versace.

Lady Gaga wished her Twitter followers a happy new year in a way most humans cannot: with a new image from her Versace campaign. This is the third we've seen, but the first to feature a shirtless Mother Monster. We thought 2013 was the year of shirtless stars, but maybe Gaga is trying to bring the trend into the new year. It's a good thing these ads have her in that long, platinum, Donatella-inspired wig, right? Otherwise this one would only be suitable for, like, Playboy, and I have a sneaking suspicion Playboy readers are not Versace's target audience.

Word on the street is Rita Ora, sometime singer/model and newly cast actress in Fifty Shades of Grey, went and got herself yet ANOTHER gig with DKNY—this time, as the face of their brand new fragrance franchise. DANG! Is there anything this girl can't do? WWD reports that, while the company has yet to comment, Ora will be the spokeswoman for a scent that's set to launch in fall 2014. We're guessing it smells like money (on Ora, at least).

Adding fodder to the rumor mill, Rita was snapped yesterday in Times Square doing all the things we've come to associate with recent DKNY fashion ads (e.g. cheesing hard, posing in cabs, posing on cabs, looking windswept in the street), and we can't help wonder: Are they already shooting her first campaign? Sure looks like it!

Well well well, looks like Rihanna has landed herself a new gig. Earlier this morning on Instagram (duh, where else would Rih break news?), Bad Gal announced that she's the face of Balmain's Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, delivering the deets and giving us the first look in one fell swoop.

The ads, which were shot by Inez and Vinoodh and styled by Rihanna's go-to guy, Mel Ottenberg, feature colorfully dressed Rih set against a monochromatic, tiled background. A steam room minus the steam, it would appear—more high fashion than I've ever found in a steam room, but Rihanna hangs out in more luxurious places than I do, so maybe wearing a j'outfit with gold-chain stripes is the norm in saunas of the rich and famous? IDK.

Sky's new 'do.

If Sky Ferreira put "become the face of a major hair-care brand" on her Christmas list this year, then she must have been RULL good, because that's exactly what she got! (Ugh. Why didn't I think of that?!) Ferreira, who's been tearing up the airwaves with her debut studio album, Night Time, My Time, just announced on her Tumblr that she's officially the new face of Redken. In order to prepare herself for the first campaign, the singer/model made a drastic move by taking her hair from bleached blonde to dark brown! Her eyebrows made the ol' switcheroo, too, but with a twist: Her formerly dark-brown brows are now blonde! V edgy.

Givenchy is continuing its streak of casting famous faces in its campaigns, and for spring 2014, the label has tapped legendary singer-songwriter Erykah Badu! Style.com got an exclusive look at the images and chatted with Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci about his decision to cast the singer, who, he says, "is one of the most stylish women [he's] met in [his] life."

Tisci said that he had Erykah on his mind when designing the 2014 spring collection, which will feature a combination of African and Japanese influences. The black-and-white campaign image, shot by Mert & Marcus, features a short-haired Badu in what is essentially a poncho with the shoulders cut out. The beguiling top has no sleeves and no obvious collar, but instead hangs from two thick straps around her neck. On the runway, the bright graphic on the front looks like it's made of sequins, but in the ad, it's completely muted, giving the piece an entirely different feel.

Kristen Stewart, Karl Lagerfeld

Last night, at a rodeo-inspired Chanel runway show, Kristen Stewart was named the new face of Chanel, with a campaign landing in the spring of 2014. If none of the words in the preceding sentence made sense (Chanel, rodeo, Kristen Stewart), lemme explain.

Every year, Karl Lagerfeld hosts a Chanel Métiers d'Art presentation, which is a collection of pieces between the fall and spring seasons. This has taken place all over the globe. In the past, the show has occurred in Scotland, Toyko, and Bombay. This year, however, Karl opted for the slightly less-exotic city of Dallas, Texas, to show his Americana-inspired collection, proof that people will go wherever Karl Lagerfeld tells them to go. The rodeo-ready collection is heavy on fringe, tiered skirts, and denim—three design elements that don't appear often in Chanel offerings (though sometimes things happen). Kristen Stewart, fan of sheer jumpsuits, will be the face of this collection.

So smooth, that Bieber.

Justin Bieber released the short film for his new fragrance, The Key, this weekend—and from what we gather, once you purchase said perfume, the Biebs has full license to break and enter your room without any legal implications. Don't say we didn't warn you. Of course, if you like the idea of Justin waking you up at 3am on a Tuesday to go look at taxidermied animals and dance on a rooftop, then you're in luck. Maybe still sleep with a bat under your bed just in case, though. JK! No need to be scared. Justin Bieber will only sneak into your room to do fun things, according to his film.

Holy smokes. Please look at this new video from the toy company GoldieBlox because it is EXCELLENT. Set to a remake of the Beastie Boys’ “Girls,” it features a Rube Goldberg machine (an overly-complicated contraption that relies on a sort of domino-effect to complete a simple task) that destroys tea sets, marabou feathers, dolls, a rolling pin, a see-saw, a badminton racket, and a parasol, delighting a crew of really frickin’ adorable girls. If you’re not familiar with the company, GoldieBlox was launched last year with help from a gobsmackingly successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $285,881; way over their $150,000 goal.

Founder and CEO Debbie Sterling, a Rhode Island native who studied engineering at Stanford, wanted to start a movement to “disrupt the pink aisle and inspire the future generation of female engineers,” attributing the discouraging lack of women in her profession to a dearth of maker-minded toys for girls. GoldieBlox features a book, a tool kit, and a construction set, with the book as a sort of Trojan Horse for girls who tend to be more verbally inclined (“boys like to build; girls like to read,” she says in her Kickstarter video).

Solange celebrates the release of 'Saint Heron' wearing teal Pumas.

Today in “duh” news, Puma rolled out a new ad campaign featuring four budding “It” girls who were all hand-picked and art directed by singer/eBay curator/Queen of Mixed Prints, Solange Knowles. OK, so her role in the campaign isn’t ~exactly~ what we imagined, but we’ve had a sinking suspicion for a while now that Solange proooobably had something in the works with the increasingly stylish shoe brand. (We just thought it’d be more along the lines of, like, being the face, err, foot of the ad, or perhaps designing some special edition print-heavy kicks.)

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