In the past several days, Miley Cyrus has been both everywhere and nowhere at all. #DeepThoughts. The 20-year-old singer hasn’t been publicly photographed since the 12th, but reports that she’s gone back to being a brunette set the internet ablaze on the 13th, when a fan-made video showing Cyrus with a noticeably darker ‘do emerged in Paris. (Sadly, the original video in question was recorded on the 10th, and Miley was definitely blonde two days after that. We do detective work on the side over here, BTW. Inquire within.) So, yeah. She’s been M.I.A. for four days now, which is basically like, YEARS in interweb-time. Thankfully, Harper’s Bazaar is here to hold us over 'til the next sighting with the release of their October cover (yes, different from the couture spread she did for the mag's September issue!), featuring an uncharacteristically covered-up Cyrus in a sleek and sexy Burberry Prorsum LBD.
Behind the scenes of Lady Gaga's "Elle" magazine photo shoot.

Just when you start to get used to a look on Lady Gaga, she switches it up on you again. We've been pretty much chronicling the every quick-change of Gagaloo's strawberry blonde, BIG, wavy "Botticelli Babe" 'do from every clam shell bra to bedazzled Versace jumpsuit to motion-restrictive Comme des Garçons. Only to have it all turned on its head with the release of her October cover for Elle magazine. Along with the dramatic cover which only features half of Gaga's face enveloped in a louche frame of green and black satin and white and pink furs, we were given a peek at two inside pages of the cover spread—both soft, ethereal, and taken creepily through windows from far away. Now, thanks to a behind-the-scenes video Gaga tweeted, the stalker-esque shoot gets some context.
Lady Gaga on the cover of 'Elle.'
Lady Gaga is racking up the magazine covers! She had not one, but four, for V Magazine, and now she's on the cover of the October issue of Elle, looking silky and furry. The silk sleeves of her dress are black at the top and green at the bottom, and they take up, like, over half of the cover. On top of Gaga's head is what looks like blonde hair, but alas, it is not! It's a Bjørg pony hair necklace that she's wearing as a headpiece. Head decoration doesn't end there, though: there's also a fluffy pink pom-pom which is, NO BIG DEAL, a pink raccoon-fur headpiece from Schiaparelli. Yup. That's two separate pieces on her head.
Katy Perry on Good Morning America.

OMG, more Katy Perry news, y'all. The Katy Perry promo train is one that makes infrequent stops: time to get on board. Katy was on Good Morning America this AM to promote "Roar" and her upcoming release, Prism. Continuing her theme of dressing in florals, Katy was decked out in a tight green dress with daisies printed all over it. She grunged the dress up with black knee socks and shiny maroon Doc Martens. Her hair, which is currently black, was up in very Heidi-chic milkmaid braids; she accessorized very simply with large gold hoops, though they're def not as large as BFF Rihanna's. They're, like, 1/8th the size of Rihanna's.
Remember when "she's just being Miley" harkened to a 16-year-old Miley Cyrus st-st-st-stutterin' in front of a crush? Also a part of the tame ol' days: Hannah Montana, waist-long extensions and pants. My, how times have changed! Posing (obvi) sans pants for dual covers of Notion Magazine's September issue, Miles serves it up with a kind of refined urban chicness. We're totally feeling her foliage and stripe-covered sweatshirt, all-white Bol$hie snapback, crimson-colored lips and a heap o' gold chains.
For a lady who's obsessed with menswear, Ciara certainly knows how to rock a super girly look like it ain't no thang. The singer pulled out ALL the glamorous stops for her September Paper magazine cover shoot—Old Hollywood waves, bright red lips and hot pink nails. (Also, um, PLEASE peep the contouring on those cheekbones. #dead) She sported an embellished Christian Siriano mesh top over a custom black fishnet Natalie Joos shirt with high-waisted pale pink Marc Jacobs shorts and leopard print Christian Louboutin heels. To add that high-fashion edge, Ciara did the infamous "couture hunch" in a floral print chair to really pull the entire look together.
Lady Gaga for 'V' Magazine.

Remember how we kind of off-handedly pointed out that Lady Gaga was almost topless on that first V Magazine cover from earlier this week? All that cleavage blending into underboob was just an afterthought because we were so caught up in the CUSTOM Saint Laurent draped on top of it. And we also kind of noted that she wasn't really wearing much more for her inside shots. Welp, let this be the day we learn to never underestimate Gagaloo's commitment to nakedness. V has just unveiled all four of Lady Gaga's limited edition covers AND spreads, and girl is barely wearing any clothes.
Sky Ferreira on the cover of 'Fader'

Sky Ferreira graces the cover of The Fader's Fall Fashion Issue and, even better, there's a behind the scenes video of the shoot! The cover was shot by the singer's friend, Sandy Kim, and while Sky looks less than pleased, the BTS vid shows that the shoot was actually full of LOLs (wow, and I thought the camera never lied).
Lady Gaga's first of four "V" Magazine covers.

There’s no denying that Lady Gaga has returned to the limelight in a HUGE way lately. Releasing a new single, hitting the streets in full face paint, prepping for her upcoming VMA performance…and that only covers the past 48 hours! Never one for keeping fans off their toes, Mother Monster has shared her new V Magazine cover—and it does NOT disappoint. The pic was shot by Inez and Vinoodh (yep, the same duo responsible for her "Applause" artwork) and is the first of four covers the magazine is releasing as part of a limited edition box set. Each installment will depict a different phase of Gaga's life, this first one (above) illustrating her late teenage years when she was still a brunette named Stefani Germanotta.

Good old Stefano and Domenico (Dolce & Gabbana for those of you not on a first-name basis) are causing some hubbub again. It seems the Italian duo has been stirring up the drama a LOT lately—y'know, with the tax evasion and alleged racism and all. *GULP* Still, no one can quite deny the total awesomeness of their Fall/Winter 2013 collection, especially ever since Katy Perry showed up looking like Queen Guinevere’s hot goth sister at this year's Met Gala. But just when you thought it was smooth sailing on the Adriatic, D&G are now the face of a scintillating Scarlett Johansson vs. Katy Perry "who wore it best" battle!
