Sweets on yo' feet!

When was the last time you wanted something to be both on your feet and in your belly at the same time? Probably never. Or, if you've been keeping up with our Food Friday franchise, perhaps you felt such a simultaneous urge less than a month ago when we featured the EXACT SAME pair of jelly bean socks that Rita Ora has been snapping multiple (OK, two) photos of today. While we recommended that you wear these Shop Jeen socks to keep your feet warm in the winter, it looks like Ora (according to one caption) might be wearing the colorful candy snack to snazz up her gym attire. Nothing keeps you motivated like sugar on your feet! (And also things like determination and water.)

Today was a big day for Jennifer Lawrence. Mainly because it was the red carpet debut of her super-new, super-short pixie cut. OK, also because today was the world premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in London. You know, small details. But while the world was waiting with bated breath to see how J. Law would style her freshly cut ‘do (answer: slicked back), it was her Christian Dior gown that really held the public's gaze. (Those metallic, midnight blue Kurt Geiger pumps aren't half bad either.)
When it comes to making miserable look good, Sky Ferreira is a pro. In a series of new ads shot by Henrik Purienne for Maison Kitsuné, Ferreira serves up some "OMG I HATE YOU, CLOSE THE CURTAINS," realness in some less-realistic lounge-wear. I mean, I'm sure there ~are~ people out there who lay around pouting and posing and reading The New York Times in a sheening, cobalt pullover, stark-white business socks and a floral, silk headscarf—but, yeah, I don't know any of those people. (Sorry for shattering your dreams, fellas. Most girls definitely don't wake up looking quite so easy-like-Sunday-morning.)
SCUURT! Jennifer Lawrence just casually debuted a very short pixie cut via her Facebook fan page without, like, any sort of explanation or announcement at all. GIRL. If you're gonna go all temporary Beyonce on us like that, you have to at least give us some deets! Lawrence was snapped en route to a meet-up with her fellow Catching Fire cast mates for The Hunger Games’ Global Fan Day, and we’re really curious as to how the franchise’s loyal fans will feel about her chopping off Katniss Everdeen’s signature side-braid. I mean, she can obvi wear a wig if it hasn’t grown out by the time the next film rolls around, but seeing Katniss without her hair at an event for The Hunger Games kinda feels like pulling back the curtain on the Wizard in The Wizard of Oz, amirite? Kind of?
Lana Del Rey on the cover of the November issue of 'NYLON.'
After hearing nary a peep about Lana Del Rey for months, she's popped back into our lives big time in the past few days. First, of course, was her role in the Kimye engagement: Kanye hired a 50-piece orchestra to play her song, "Young and Beautiful" as the soundtrack to the proposal. Then, she crops up on NYLON's November cover with insanely shiny, deep auburn hair (it's not that far of a cry from her dark brown hair the last time we saw her, on the Tropico poster, but it's noticeably lighter). Where ya been, LDR? It doesn't really matter, TBH, we're just happy to have you back.
On the cover, Lana wears a Calvin Klein denim shirt, a black bustier from Nasty Gal, and a DKNY skirt. She may be laying low, but she can still bring it when it comes to magazine covers: she has, after all, had ample experience. Gone is her signature cat eye; in its place a some subtle pink eyeliner and mascara.
Lorde on the cover of 'Clash' magazine's Pop Special issue.

You may not recognize Lorde's face, but you've definitely heard her single "Royals" on the radio/on TV/on your BFF's fave playlist/everywhere you go, etc. The song has been sittin' pretty atop the Billboard Hot 100 for the past three weeks and the Internet is abuzz with Lorde's every move. Oh, also, she's only 16. NBD. As the reigning ruler of pop music, it makes total sense that Clash magazine has put Lorde on the cover of their Pop Special issue.
On the cover—which, along with the rest of the spread, was styled by Victoria Higgs—the singer is in a brown turtleneck and black and white furry coat. The most striking thing about the cover (besides how she manages to pull off all basic colors together), is that her hair, which is normally curly, unruly, (not to mention 100% enviable) is wet, middle-parted, and kept in line with 2 sparkly barrettes.
Rita Ora got her hair did.

Go getcha some hair chalk. Dip-dyed ‘dos are officially happening again. We know this because, well, see above. When it comes to fashion, there's no doubt that Rita Ora is a risk-taker. (See also: antler ears, head-to-toe logo gear, combo pants, etc. etc.) But in terms of her hair, she’s pretty much kept it in the blonde spectrum–until now. Earlier this week, we got a glimpse of Rita’s rainbow chunks in a photo of a studio session she posted on Instagram. But the shot went without comment, so for all we knew, it was some temporary Manic Panic ish that she wanted to match with her new, floral Jeremy Scott raincoat. Well, that was not the case.
OK we get it, you guys are BFFs.

Hold the phone. Did Rita Ora nab a Chanel campaign?! All signs on the singer’s Instagram point to probably. Either that, or running around Paris at midnight in head-to-toe Chanel is Karl Lagerfeld’s idea of a girls’ night out. Wait. IS that Karl Lagerfeld's idea of a girls' night out? Honestly, IDK exactly what is happening in these photos, but I do know that I want to go there.
Ora posted a TON of snaps from a midnight photoshoot in Paris this weekend, and regardless of what is actually happening, I think we're all pretty much dying to see what kind of lux friendship bracelets she and Uncle Karl have—because they are clearly BFFs now. “Taking a midnight stroll with the man who inspires me to be glamorous at all times without a hint of doubt. Love you uncle Karl," Ora captioned a particularly cozy photo. Move over, Cara. Oh, wait. There’s room for you, too, under this scaffolding. *wipes brow*
Shailene Woodley on the cover of 'Elle.'
Well, they could have at LEAST given the girl a towel. Shailene Woodley is one of six actresses (alongside big screen heavy weights like Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz and Marion Cotillard) who appear on the cover of Elle’s “2013 Women in Hollywood” issue—and from the looks of it, she probably smells like chlorine. I mean, Shailene’s gotta be a very busy lady, so it’s totally possible that the mag had to squeeze a quick photoshoot in during her daily back-stroke lesson, or whatever. Or it could just be about #FASHUN. (It’s probably about #FASHUN.) Slicked back hair IS pretty chic right now.
Rita Ora shows us how to "get the London look."

Earlier today, Rita Ora gave fans a sneak peek of her Rimmel London line via Instagram and um, GIMME. The pics provided us with the first major deets of Ora’s debut make-up collection, which was officially announced last month and is set to hit shelves in February. Ugh. #SOFARAWAY But since she was generous enough to display (what we believe to be) all of the lipstick and nail polish colors the line will offer, we can at least start mentally matching products to our winter 2014 outfits now. And if you think that’s extreme planning, well, it is.
