Yaaas, you didn't think we'd forgotten about Coachella, did you? Nooo, of course we didn't! We recruited our old pal Jarvis Derrell of #shehashadit to comment on some of the looks from the festival because, as we know, #everybodyaintable. Peep below to see what you may have missed in Indio.

What would Rita Ora steal from Prince's closet?

From the moment we read in Rita Ora's interview (with bestie Nick Grimshaw) for Paper magazine that Prince assisted with her forthcoming sophomore album, we've been OBSESSED with this idea of His Royal Badness letting her play dress-up in his closet à la that Super Bowl episode of New Girl. Naturally, we HAD to slip this question into her MTV Twitter Takeover today (Monday, April 21): If you could steal one thing from Prince's closet, what would it be? We ask the hard-hitting Qs around here, y'all.
While many people put on their Sunday best to celebrate Easter, a number of celebrities got into the holiday spirit in a more playful way: with bunny ears! Beyonce, Mariah Carey, and Rita Ora all accessorized with ears, while Rihanna celebrated in a different way.

Cop Rihanna's steez.

While we are big fans of Rihanna's style, it's, um, not always easy to dress like her. See-through skirts just don't fly at the office and we tend to wear shirts when we go out to dinner. There are a few Rihanna-helmed trends that we would like to get in on, though, like wearing your robe outside and borrowing Drake's Astrid Andersen coat. Between Astrid Andersen, Balmain, and Chanel, there are a lot of Rihanna looks that we can't afford, either, which is why when we saw her in a Lovers + Friends sweatshirt, we knew we had to jump at the opportunity to cop some RiRi-approved clothing for ourselves.
The sleeveless gray sweatshirt is pretty ideal for transitioning seasons—it'll keep your upper body warm, but let your arms enjoy the warm air. Until it's actually hot enough to go sleeveless, though, it's perfect to layer under a coat. No sleeves means no bulky arms! It's like a very elaborate dickey. The neon orange text will also let people know that you're a lover, not a fighter. That's a pretty good message to broadcast, IMHO.
Angel Haze and Iggy Azalea for 'Elle.'

Springtime is not only in the running for the greatest season ever because it’s when we can finally come out of hibernation—it’s also the time of the year when fashion magazines put out their music issues, cast our favorite artists in new editorial light, and get them to open up about their style and more. We already peeped Miley Cyrus' cover for Elle's Women in Music issue, but now we can see who appears inside and we are pretttty excited about who they tapped.
Eleven ladies are featured inside the issue, including Angel Haze, Iggy Azalea, Lily Allen, and Ariana Grande. Of course, they’re all styled to perfection. Angel Haze pulls off what must be a very heavy Dolce & Gabbana coin belt with matching earrings and a silk fringe top by the fashion house. Iggy, meanwhile, wears both some crazy bedazzled arm cuffs by Maison Martin Margiela and the wet-hair trend.
Sky Ferreira is as relatable as pop stars get. Case in point: Her latest single, “I Blame Myself” is all about owning up to your personal failures. The video premiered yesterday and is fully shoppable—you can check out every single thing Sky wears in the video. Sky recently sat down with the New York Times and pretty much confirmed that she’s someone who you want to be best friends with. The Bangerz Tour opener talked about everything from working with Miley to her many modeling stints and her debut album, Night Time, My Time. There are too many fascinating quotes to choose from, so we rounded up some of her best moments. Enjoy!
1.) Even pop stars have trouble affording Saint Laurent: “I have a 50 percent discount [on Saint Laurent] worldwide. It’s pretty expensive, though. On tour I have to use my business card for everything, like gas, but I also buy my clothes on it. I go there and it gets rejected, and I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, this is embarrassing.’ I didn’t tell them my name until she was like, ‘You’re Sky, you’re in the ads.’ And I said, ‘This isn’t working right now, I’ll come back in an hour. I swear there’s money in there.’”

Last week Kristen Stewart dyed her hair orange. Or, at least, we thought she did. It turns out her orange hair was merely one step in a multi-step process to get fiery red hair. K.Stew was spotted on set for American Ultra with her bright red 'do and, at least from the candid photos, it looks like she's enjoying life as a redhead. It's probably hard to look sad when your hair is, like, as bright as it's ever going to be.
Pieces from Katy Perry's Claire's collection.
Anyone who has ever shopped at Claire's knows that it is the one-stop shop for fun and colorful accessories. So it made perfect sense when Katy Perry—the most fun and colorful human in the world—announced that she was going to design a collection for the store. Ever since we heard this fabulous bit of news a few months ago, we've been trying to imagine the holographic bling Katy would bring to the table. Would there be Egyptian necklaces? Prism earrings? Jungle-cat rings? It's been keeping us up at night, to be honest.
Well, stop imagining and start looking, my friends. Claire's just released a sneak peek of Katy's Prism collection, and it's like a dream come true. It looks like the line is a mix of prismatic shine and "Roar" jungle vibes (everyone knows Katy loves a good theme). In the sparkle department, we get bedazzled bobby pins, a charm bracelet, and a huge Prism pendant necklace, all sticking to the triangular motif of Katy's Prismatic World Tour. There are also nameplate-esque necklaces, only instead of names, they say "Roar" and "Champion." I can't tell what the middle one says, but I'm guessing, like, "Tiger" or "Fighter."
Lorde on the cover of 'Teen Vogue.'

There’s something different about Lorde’s Teen Vogue cover. *Squints eyes, cocks head* Oh right! Lorde is wearing a whole lot of color. The 17-year-old alt-pop wunderkind is glowing on her latest magazine cover, where she’s styled in an orange-and-red plaid top from Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 collection—a pivot from her typically goth, mostly monotone M.O. Lorde’s softer makeup—a light smoky eye finished with silver shadow and a natural lip (not her signature purple shade)—is another departure that we can get behind.
Lorde opens up in her profile about the unrealistic beauty ideals placed on pop stars—and, she hopes, their eventual disappearance. "There are a lot of expectations in this industry about looking a certain way and having a certain kind of appeal," she says. "I am feminine, but I really love dressing in boys' clothes too. I guess that's why I get labeled as 'the grumpy girl,' because I don't play into that."
