Erykah Badu’s relationship with Givenchy keeps getting better. Not only did the neo-soul songstress partly inspire the fashion house’s Afrocentric-meets-Japanese spring collection, she was also tapped to star in their campaign. And it’s one of the better ones of the season, with Badu flawlessly modeling some of the collection’s strongest looks, like the off-the-shoulder beaded mask tapestry and the deconstructed tux kimono with a top hat. In a batch of campaign photos Badu posted to her Facebook page, she also mixes pieces from Spring '14 with ones from past seasons and her signature turban.

KYE

Looks from KYE's Fall 2014 New York Fashion Week show

The way KYE is stylized in all caps, you'd think it was an acronym: clever shorthand for some elusive phrase apropos of EVERYTHING that you'll never be inner-circle enough to know because these clothes are THAT cool. Well, it's not. I mean, the clothes actually are 100% that cool, but KYE takes its name from the line's brilliant designer, Kathleen Kye. There's a good chance you haven't heard of Kye or her namesake label, and that's totally understandable seeing as she's only been showing for a handful of seasons and has only recently branched into womenswear. BUT we have a feeling that's aaaaall about to change very soon. I mean, look at this collection! I want to wear everything right NOW.

Rihanna

Oooh, it's so shiny! Rihanna strutted around SoHo for the launch of her MAC Viva Glam line last night, but honestly, her outfit kinda stole the show. She boldly combined a sparkly purple blazer with an equally sparkly "dream" slogan tee and ruffled navy pencil skirt. That outfit + a gold lamé kerchief = major flight attendant vibes. We have no doubt RiRi could have directed her fair share of traffic in this getup...mainly because EVERY surface was reflective.

Lady Gaga

If you're a longtime Little Monster, you'll remember the Gagavision videos Lady Gaga released weekly during 2008 and 2009. In 2011, after the release of Born This Way, Gaga resurrected the series for four episodes. And now, it's back yet again. Early this morning, Gaga dropped "Gagavision no. 45," which ~sorta~ documents her big weekend in Paris. I say sorta because "Mambo Italiano" is playing over the video and you can barely hear one word that is uttered. Whatever, though, right? Who cares about WORDS with there is #FASHUN to look at.

The first shot of the Gaga-edited video is Mother Monster deplaning a private jet, champagne bottle in hand, decked out in what I assume is Versace. The sheer dress is pretty similar to one Gaga wore in her Versace ad and, TBH, it'd be pretty weird to wear a different designer for a "Paris Atelier Versace Couture Weekend." Plus, those silver Medusa heads are a dead giveaway.

Back in November, we were gifted a single shot from Sky Ferreira's campaign for Maison Kitsune. Grungy and glamorous, Ferreira almost made us think that we too could wake up in our winged eyeliner looking just as low-maintenance luxe. Almost. Then we tried it and were horrified by the drippy-eyed monsters we saw in the mirror. Thankfully, Kitsune FINALLY released some new pics for their Spring/Summer 2014 collection, and we're, like, 90% sure we can actually pull off some of these other NYC-based shots ourselves. (Given the right Instagram filter, a tiny dose of Photoshop, and every single amazing piece from the brand's "New Wave" line, that is.)

Over the long weekend, the fashion elite started flocking to Paris to catch a glimpse of the latest in haute couture collections. Lady Gaga was there, too, but I'm pretty sure she was just celebrating herself. Not that I blame her, of course—because she was pretty much the center of attention wherever she went (in, like, a much bigger way than usual). And this is a woman who regularly exits hotels with giant props and once arrived to an awards show on a human horse. Hard to believe, I know.

On Sunday, Gaga celebrated herself with a cameo at the Atelier Versace show (courtesy of her BFF, Donatella Versace). The singer, who was recently named the new face of the Italian fashion house, showed up in a black hooded dress (that would moments later hit the runway for the first time) and her very apropos Donatella-style blonde wig. #twinsies

OBVIOUSLY, Mother Monster sat front row for the show (next to famed photog, Mario Testino), and enjoyed a soundtrack from herself, featuring both old and ARTPOP songs. "ARTPOP: anyone can achieve everything I have and more. Your talent belongs to the world. Share it. You'll wake up in the front row @Versace," she tweeted after the show. Oh, it's as easy as sharing? Good to know. Get to work, Little Monsters.

Beyonce

If you haven't been keeping up with Beyonce's photo-posting marathon over the past few days, what have you been doing? There are 24 hours in a day. You can dedicate at least five of them to looking through every picture Bey shares. In case you have other things going on, we'll fill you in: Beyonce has been wearing a lot of Versace. Like, she probably should've been given a verse in Migos' "Versace" (under her rap alter ego, Third Ward Trill) because she would have a lot of material.

To hang out with Jay in an elevator, Bey wore a printed pink silk Versace shirt and a pair of leggings from the M.I.A.'s Versus Versace collab. While the shirt is sold out (it was a cool $638 anyway), the green-and-pink floral-print leggings are still available! You may not be able to wear Versace on Versace exactly like Bey, but you CAN put those bad boys on and pose in any elevator you can find.

Alexander Wang Knockoff

Is Alexander Wang's "Parental Advisory" shirt the most copied look from the Spring 2014 runway? It definitely seems like it. Since the runway show in September, both Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 have been accused of knocking off the logo that appeared everywhere in Wang's collection. Pixie Market has taken their imitation one step further, not only using the logo, but putting it on a white sweatshirt with mesh cut-outs. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I'd bet Alexander Wang is feeling pretty flattered right now.

While Pixie Market is not the first to, um, sell a familiar look (and certainly not the last), their version of this sweatshirt is about as close to the original that we've seen in recent memory.

Angel Haze performs at Philipp Plein's Fall 2014 menswear show.

Here are some things one might associate with the wild, wild American west: cowboys, lassos, saloons, Will Smith, 10-gallon hats, studded leather saddles, motorcycle jackets lined with mink, crocodile bombers, Angel Haze, etc. etc. Oh, oops! I wrote that wrong. What I meant to say was, "Here are some things designer Philipp Plein associates with the wild, wild west." According to his recent runway show, that is.

With a neon-lit, multi-level saloon serving as the backdrop, Plein presented his "Noir Cowboy"-themed menswear collection in Milan on Sunday—complete with a cap gun fight, a mechanical bull, and real bucking broncos. But despite the live-action gunplay between shirtless male models (#yeehaw), the most surprising aspect of the show was an unannounced guest performance by rapper Angel Haze.

Harper's Bazaar

Diane von Furstenberg: "The Original Wrapper"
Photo: Harper's Bazaar

Being bookended by two beautiful fashion icons for your first ever photo shoot with Harper's Bazaar is definitely something to smile about (no matter how head-scratchingly incongruous your inclusion in the photo is). Wale does just that as he’s holding up the svelte, high-heeled legs of iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg and international supermodel Bar Rafaeli for the magazine's February 2014 issue. It's the lead image for a piece entitled “The Original Wrapper”—see what they did there? *wink wink nudge nudge*—which commemorates the 40-year anniversary of DVF's timeless wrap dress. As model Rafaeli puts it, the photo is meant to highlight "the wrap and rap combined," and also to give context to that très punny headline. But hey, it’s not every day a rapper graces the pages of Harper’s Bazaar, so fine, if they needed a play on words to do it, we’ll take it.

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