By now it’s starting to become easier to count the designers Miley Cyrus isn’t wearing on her Bangerz Tour than the ones she is. We’ve seen her in designs by The Blonds, Jeremy Scott, Marc Jacobs, and Roberto Cavalli, and it’s only been a month since the tour kicked off. To put her ever-expanding wardrobe into perspective, that’s nearly as many designers as Beyonce’s worn for her Mrs. Carter Show—and THAT'S on its 11th month of touring.
Nicki Minaj on the set of 'Senile.'

In case you were worried Nicki Minaj's "Senile" video would only contain one brand-new matching Moschino set, you can rest assured: There will be at least two. Nicki posted a new set of images from the shoot on Instagram last night, and though she has on a Moschino bra and underwear, she looks very different than she did in last week's photos. Perhaps it's that dark lip liner?
In addition to the liner, Nicki has on a pair of gold bamboo door-knocker hoops that could give Rihanna's biggest pair a run for their money. Maybe Nicki hit up Rih to ask about the "#chola" life—she went as a "#ZombieChola" for Halloween last year, so she may have tips on tying a bandana and keeping your liner in place. Just two friends exchanging lifestyle tips, y'know, the usual.

Witnessing a model wear a black leather two-piece with "Moschino" written in all-caps gold lettering across her stomach, forehead, leg, and boobs, your first thought might be, "Wow, who could possibly find a reason to wear that outfit IRL?" Well, we now have an answer for you: Nicki Minaj! The MC recently uploaded a massive batch of Instagram shots, each one featuring Jeremy Scott's aforementioned badass bikini. The impromptu photo shoot took place on the set of her video for "Senile," the single from Young Money's Rise of an Empire compilation (which explains why Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Tyga make cameos in some of the pics).
Karl Lagerfeld loves emojis.

In case you missed the marriage of everyone's favorite two things (emojis and Karl Lagerfeld), Karl designed a set of emojis to coincide with the launch of his fragrance line. The app, which you can download now, is called emotiKARL and contains Karl-approved emojis, like various hands with fingerless leather gloves, the many emotions of Choupette, perfume bottles, and more. Since I have read, cherished, and savored a vast number of Karl interviews in my life, I am fairly confident I have an idea of how his emoji proposal meeting went down. Here is my fictional account of the meeting in our latest installation of Fashion Fanfic.
NB: In honor of Karl, I originally wrote this story in French. I have since translated it to English, though, so you don't have to.
Roberto Cavalli's Bangerz Tour sketches.

Miley Cyrus is beginning to rival Beyonce in ever-changing onstage outfits. Over the weekend in Milwaukee, she debuted a new leotard and a jacket made from stuffed animals. A mere two days later, in Dallas, she broke out two new Roberto Cavalli looks. We knew to expect some Cavalli on this tour—he shared his sketches in January—but we didn't know we would get TWO in the same night. Miley, you're spoiling us.
How much does Rihanna's necklace weigh, TBH?

It's no secret that Rihanna is all about #phreshofftherunway looks. She's also all about pieces that are #CCcertified AND has shown an affinity for oversized accessories in the past. Thus, a necklace that made its grand debut just last week at Chanel's Fall 2014 runway show is obviously an ideal accessory. Especially if it's a lock so big that it could secure a yacht.
Rihanna must've called dibs on the padlock necklace last week as she was making friends/posing for scrapbook photos during Paris Fashion Week, and Uncle Karl must've hooked her up. Between the gold bike chain and the size of the lock, Rih's neck must be exhausted. What kind of exercises are needed to prepare your neck for such a weighty accessory? Is this called a LOCKet? I have a lot of questions.

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.
