There was no shortage of high profile shows this Paris Fashion Week, from Alexander Wang’s new collection for Balenciaga to Nicolas Ghesquiere’s Louis Vuitton debut, but, in terms of front row attendees, it’s safe to say that Miu Miu nailed it. Brace yourself for this all-star lineup: recent Oscar winners Lupita Nyong’o and her "rumored boyfriend" Jared Leto, Rihanna, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, and Margot Robbie, just to name a few. Even better was the seating chart, with Lupita and Rihanna sharing space. Just imagine them casually exchanging style tips, life lessons, and beauty tricks #dreamteam.

If you ever went to Disney World as a little kid, then you likely know the unbridled joy of the beloved character's breakfast. As you and your family ordered eggs and bacon, Disney favorites would walk around the restaurant, allowing for photo ops and scribbling signatures in autograph books. It was kind of like meeting your idols (at an age when idolizing cartoons wasn't totally cray). As an adult, one might liken it to Rihanna's first few days of Paris Fashion Week, where she basically buddied up with ALL the best designers for a monster collection of framable photos. (It should also be noted that Rih managed to wear a different shade of lipstick in every single shot, which is just, like, wow. *bows down*)
“I don’t think you’re ready for this jumpsuit” is what Beyonce could be singing during her Mrs. Carter Show tour, if she felt like riffing off the lyrics to “Bootylicious.” This sparkly nude number is the latest addition to Queen Bey’s ever-expanding killer wardrobe. It isn’t exactly the most nude thing we’ve seen Mrs. Carter in—the molded Blonds bodysuit she’s been wearing on stage is a frontrunner—but it is the closest we’ve seen Bey come to Britney’s iconic glittering nude suit from “Toxic” and, man, is she pulling it off.
Some things are just made to go together. Peanut butter and jelly. Salt and pepper (also, Salt-N-Pepa). Jeans and T-shirts. Jennifer Lawrence and Dior. As the current face of Miss Dior, J-Law has been wearing the designer almost exclusively as of late. For some, that might start to feel predictable, but somehow this pairing manages to make each outfit more refreshing than the last. Jennifer's red carpet appearances this year have pretty much felt like sitting front row at a Dior couture runway show—and we certainly aren't complaining.
We can't wait to see what Dior creation she might surprise us with at the 2014 Academy Awards, and you better believe we'll be here LIVE on Sunday night to relay the news. To prepare ourselves, we decided to take a look back at the star's relationship with the designer (spoiler alert: it's lasted longer than most Hollywood marriages).

You remember this one. The entire WORLD remembers this one. By now, Jennifer Lawrence's trip up the stairs at the 2013 Oscars is more famous than that year's actual winners. Adorable clumsiness aside, J-Law was simply stunning in the soft ballerina-pink Dior gown. It's a dress befit for a certifiable movie star.
Did Rihanna just get a haircut between Paris Fashion Week shows?

If you thought fashion month was winding down just because we're on our last leg—Paris Fashion Week—think again! It seems Balenciaga's unexpected guest (#KanyeAlert) isn't the only surprise popping off in Paris: I'm preeetty sure Rihanna just got a haircut BETWEEN SHOWS. *rubs eyes, does triple take, gets whiplash, rubs neck also*

We've been keeping track of Beyonce's Mrs. Carter Show wardrobe to an almost obsessive degree lately. (So have you. Don't try to deny it.) The new custom-made Versace pieces have surpassed all expectations, and the original design drawings posted to Bey's website are such a welcome bonus. Seeing the transition from sketch to stage is pretty remarkable, but we couldn't help noticing an obvious difference between the final product and OG design of that epic "Bow Down" moto jacket. It seems Donatella may have originally wanted the back to read "Bitches Bow Down" but ultimately, a slightly more PG version ended up on the piece.

True to our prediction, Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter Show wardrobe got a major refresh. Bey didn’t only recruit Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci to design ***flawless duds for her post-visual album set, she also tapped Donatella Versace. We didn’t exactly see that one coming, though. Tom Ford seemed like a likelier match given the designer’s love of the Carter family (see: the custom heels he made for Blue Ivy, all of the times Bey has worn him, and, of course, his most recent collection, inspired by Jay Z’s song named for him #meta). Although Donatella has pretty much pledged her allegiance to Lady Gaga, let's be real: Who isn’t vying to dress Beyonce?
What to say about Jeremy Scott's inaugural runway collection for Moschino that hasn't already been said? It just makes a ton of sense. The Italian high-fashion mainstay has built a brand on years of irreverence, and Jeremy, the blonde, pompadoured mastermind behind winged and teddy bear-ed sneakers and so much more, is precisely the designer to steer it into 2014 and beyond. But you knew that. We all knew that. The moment the announcement was made that he'd be taking over the reins for the exeunt Rossella Jardini, you could hear the entire fashion community raising their right hands to smack themselves upside the forehead because DUH. And if for some reason you weren't a believer then, surely the lookbook photos for his debut pre-Fall 2014 collection were enough to sway you.

It was yesterday, though, that Jeremy sent his first runway collection for Moschino down the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week. After getting to a bit of a late start and a few
boos minor bumps in the road, Scott kicked things off with a sea of vibrant red and yellow: His McDonald's-inspired runway capsule collection (of which some of the pieces are available for purchase right now, BTW). The Mickey D-leaning wares skew the burger chain's iconic golden arches, rendering them into Moschino's own M-heart logo, and give the brand's own recurring cow print new meaning when shown side by side with a glorified fry cook's uniform.
