Welp, summer can officially begin, y'all! Rihanna is on the cusp of releasing her second River Island collection, and, thanks to a behind-the-scenes video the London high-street brand released today, we were Rihminded (heh) of just how much we need to get our hands on her warm-weather ready, '90s-inspired pieces. Back in February at London Fashion Week, Rihanna actually ALREADY revealed part of her summer line (remember those killer sheer floral tops and tie-dye skater skirts? Yep, that was it!), but on Saturday, May 25, all her breezy new pieces will be available to purchase in stores and on RiverIsland.com.

Lauren Conrad shows off her summer collection for Kohl's.

It's that time again, friends! Yesterday, Lauren Conrad released a sneak peek of her next LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl's, and we can already tell it will be TOTALLY perfect for all those sunny days ahead. To be honest, we've completely lost count of exactly how many collections she's released at this point, but trust us when we say it's a lot. By now, she's a total expert at styling the perfect transitional day-to-night ensembles with her carefree pieces, and judging by the pics she posted on her blog, she is still totally on-point! For her first look, she wore an effortlessly-cool blue and white polka dot skater skirt with a skinny black belt and matching pumps. The best part, though, is the open back, which you can totally peep in the reflection behind her! Her second frock is little fancier and features a double layer cream lace top and white underslip. We love how she paired it with a gold chain and stacked brown platforms. WERK!

Man, after all these months of waiting to see Nicki Minaj's debut fashion line with Kmart, the moment has finally come, y'all! Barbz woke up bright and early today (after a long night at the Met Gala, nonetheless *claps*) to share some of her first samples via Twitter, and, OMG, we can already tell this is going to be one decked out collection. At a press conference earlier this year, Nicki said she'd be sharing her design process with world ("They'll be seeing exclusive meetings and phone calls and sketches. And before you know it, the line will be here. My Barbz will be giving me information and their opinions and their true feelings"), and, boy, she wasn't kiddin'. So far, she's already showed us everything from high-waisted acid wash jeans to body-con dresses asking for her fans input on each item. Above, she showed off a pink captain's hat (her signature look!) covered in metal pins with serious gold detailing. She also revealed a silk chain print bomber jacket and matching pants with the caption, "Gna make the jacket smaller. Barbz???" If that means making it cropped, we are ALL in.

We've been chronicling the growth of Lil Wayne's shoe collaboration with SUPRA sneakers from the first rumored mumblings of a partnership to the brand confirmation and grand reveal of the first protoypes at Project MAGIC last summer. Now, we're just a few short days until the May 18 launch of SPECTRE by SUPRA (the official name of Wayne's collaborative sneaker line) and the introduction of Weezy's "Chimera" kicks to the masses. Wayne and a hefty YMCMB contingent celebrated the impending launch with a major Miami event replete with a half-pipe and—erm—tattoos!

BAPE debuts 20th anniversary t-shirts designed by 20 creative figures, including Pharrell.

Earlier this month we spilled the exciting news that streetwear label A Bathing Ape was teaming up with some of our favorite creative types— 20 of them, in fact!— on a special edition collection of tees and artwork to ring in the brand's 20th anniversary. And sure, we all know that BAPE is no stranger to rad partnerships, but an epic celebration like this one means the roster of collaborators is NEXT LEVEL awesome. We're talking about everyone from music heavyweights like Kanye West and Pharrell, to artists like Futura and Stash, to fashion players like Jun Takahashi and Daisuke Obana. Each of these highly diverse (but equally cool) style setters have all placed their signature stamp on the new crop of not-so-basic white crewnecks.

Rihanna A/W River Island Collection

Listen, we know it feels like Rihanna JUST released her debut spring 2013 River Island collection (co-designed with Adam Selman), but she's already showing us previews for her upcoming autumn/winter line. RiRi Instagrammed a pic of her and Adam working on her fall-ready pieces, which, judging from this one image, looks like it features LOTS of prints and metallics. We ain't mad at that! Rihanna sported a backward snapback hat, comfy tee, leather pencil skirt and stacked bangles while designing her second range, which is totally a reflection of her wearable, '90s-grunge-meets-streetwear pieces from her debut line. Back in March, we caught up with Adam at the Opening Ceremony "RIHtrospective" event, and he told us straight-up that they started working on the second collection the day after her London Fashion Week show. Dang, they waste no time, y'all! We obvi can't WAIT to see what the creative twosome will bring to the table for the fall, but until then, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Adam below!

Selena Gomez for adidas NEO

Well, our karmic meters must be off the charts because we’re not sure what we did to deserve this much Selena Gomez + adidas NEO goodness. Mere days after we peeped the fresh, sporty looks for Sel’s NEO spring campaign, the label launched its brand new beachy-keen (LOL had to) summer collection! Over the past couple of months, we’ve been closely following Selena’s brand ambassadorship for NEO, a project that has her pulling double duty as both face and guest-designer for the teen-styled line. And now that Selena's punctually dropped a first look at the summer collection (in the midst of her other little career as an international pop star, mind you), we are straight REVVED for the dog days. In the lookbook, Selena sports sunspired staples including swim wear, accessories, airy knits, and may even a flamingo or two. Check out more looks after the jump!

Selena Gomez stars in the new adidas NEO lookbook.

If there's anyone who can convince us to shake off those last bits of winter blahs, you'd better BET it's Selena Gomez. The actress and singer is serving up a much-needed dose of cheery spring goodness in the latest adidas NEO campaign, which just landed this week. We've been keeping close tabs on the star in her new dual role as the face and designer of the teen-centric label, from the interactive lookbook to her New York Fashion Week runway show. And while she's definitely been staying busy working with the team behind the scenes on the sporty, cute collections, now she's showing it all off in front of the camera! We've got your first look at Sel working the breezy tunics, graphic leggings, and the rest of the wares like the total pro that she is. See even more images after the jump!

Ryan Lochte

The man himself, Ryan Lochte.

Those signature grills, the epic sneaker collection, that inescapable catchphrase (you know what we're talking about...). Yep, Ryan Lochte is truly one of a kind. Isn't it crazy to think that just a year ago we had absolutely NO idea about the Lochte mania about to sweep America during the 2012 Olympics?! Now the swimming champ is pretty much everywhere, chatting about the intricacies of Speedo design on Jay Leno, launching "Hardcore Workout" DVDS online, and firmly cementing "Jeah!" into everyone's vocabulary, whether we asked for it or not. Now the golden boy has taken his infamous Lochte-isms to reality TV with E!'s new series "What Would Ryan Lochte Do?" Just before the show premiered on Sunday night, the swimmer and unabashed fashion enthusiast stopped by MTV to chat about his goal to spread "swimming awareness," how he prepped by watching The Kardashians, and of course, his plans for a clothing collection. We first heard murmurs of Lochte-branded shoes and "glitzy" accessories several months ago, and now we've got the official scoop on his design ambitions right here. Find out when we can expect the Ryan Lochte fashion line below!

Snooki MTV Movie Awards

AHHHHHH. That's literally all we can say to express how we're feeling right now because MAY-JUH news has just dropped—Snooki revealed via Instagram that the super glam, pale pink gown she wore at the MTV Movie Awards last night was from her own clothing collection. Read that again, y'all: her own clothing collection. That's right—the Jersey Shore girl has officially announced her debut Snooki Couture by Nicole Polizzi line, and not to be all, "We totally called this," but we kiiinda did. Last fall, we asked Snooki straight-up about the odds of her creating a clothing collection (98%!), and she even went as far to describe it: "It’ll be cheap, affordable, like Forever 21, but Snooki—shoes, flip-flops, bags, platforms. Good stuff." Considering she already has super successful sunglasses, jewelry, handbag, and slipper collections (just to name a few!), it's no wonder she's making the full transition into fashion.

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