The more things change...

Attention all Gwenabees: Gwen Stefani has changed her hair and is showing off her new 'do on Instagram. Well, maybe new isn't the right word to use. The last time Stefani experimented with color was well into the '90s, and the last time she went dark (with blue-black streaks) was 1999.

The No Doubt vocalist known for her platinum blonde locks hasn't deviated from her signature coiffure in years. Could this be a sign of things to come? Stefani is about to start her stint as judge and mentor on this upcoming season of The Voice and has a show with the rest of her band in September in Central Park. Are other big beauty changes on the way?

Conchita Wurst, who came to international attention after winning the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, made news at Paris Fashion Week by walking in the Jean Paul Gaultier Couture show. Wurst closed out the show, a position usually given to the designer's favorite or the most famous model. Previous closers have included Dita Von Teese and Beth Ditto. Jean Paul has long been an advocate for so-called "unconventional" models. Early on in his career, he put out a listing in French paper Libération that read: “Nonconformist designer seeks unusual models–the conventionally pretty need not apply.”

Conchita is also the latest in a line of pioneers who are challenging mainstream conceptions of gender. This might be a reflection of fashion's fickle nature or it could mean that our perception of beauty has broadened; the fashion world is notoriously exclusive, and does not often veer from its rigid strictures of what is stylish, which is why we should not only applaud the casting decision, but also celebrate those who have come before. Below are a few other drag superstars who have made names for themselves.

The '90s ushered in the rise of the supermodel, and in 1992, it got its soundtrack, thanks to RuPaul's "Supermodel (You Better Work)." Soon after, in 1994, MAC Cosmetics tapped Ru to be the first face of Viva Glam, the line's campaign to raise awareness and outreach for those in the HIV/AIDS community, making Ru the world's first drag queen supermodel.

Iggy Azalea may have been born and raised in Australia, but she looked downright country western at the Calgary Stampede in Canada on Sunday night. While her spandex outfit was an Iggy standard—she even wore the same "Classic" top with inverted colors earlier this month—she topped her look off with a traditional cowgirl hat. Our girl loves changing up her onstage style, doesn't she?

How perfectly coordinated is that purple to her ponytail?

Man, Rita Ora doesn't know when to stop does she? Not only is she constantly changing up her hair game, she's also constantly elevating looks that she's previously rocked with aplomb. For example, Rita Ora's glittery baby hair. While we'e previously seen the style with braids, the "I Will Never Let You Down" singer debuted a new version of her baby hair over the weekend. This time, the old school favorite was showcased alongside a low, dip-dyed ponytail. The effect was soft, feminine, and beautiful. The game changer, though? A glitter accent.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is five feet and one inch of all-around toughness. She’s been one of our favorite women for quite some time. What’s not to love about the icon who has fought for women’s rights for nearly 60 years and has no intention of stepping down from the bench at the spry age of 81? And while some wines and cheeses may mellow with age, not so for our Ruth. Her dissent in last week’s Hobby Lobby case was 35 pages of fine legal writing blended with a healthy helping of controlled rage.

The internet, in all its bountiful, weird glory, has turned the tiny living legend into a meme, a song, nail art, and of course, an amazing Tumblr… plus plenty of stylish ways to show your love for, yes, the Notorious R.B.G.

NYU Law Student Shanna Knizhnik started the Notorious R.G.B Tumblr nearly one year ago, and it’s still as amazing and hilarious as ever. Get down with R.B.G. and purchase this tee—there’s a direct link from Knizhnik’s Tumblr page, and I love the idea of the T-shirt proceeds supporting the busy law student/meme creator.

Beyonce's On The Run bodysuit designed by Alexander Wang.

There was simply no way Beyonce's costumes for the On the Run tour would be anything less than flawless, but somehow they're shaping up to be even more impressive than we were expecting.

To whip up performance looks fit for a queen, she enlisted a bunch of her favorite designers. Last week, we learned that Michael Costello made a black lace bodysuit for the tour. Now, Bey is spilling the deets on that leather Alexander Wang bodysuit.

Something different, Rih?

When you look at as many pictures of Rihanna as I do (personal interest/job requirement, OK?), you notice when something is different. New hair is expected, but a facial piercing is definitely not. Imagine my surprise, then, when I saw these pics of badgalriri from last night with a ring hanging from her nose! Big debuts that fly under the radar = one of thousands of reasons I miss her Instagram every single day.

Emma Watson

Despite getting face-palmed by new best friend Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson has single-handedly won Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. Apologies to all of the designers who spent the last few months of their lives working hard on their collections, and better luck next time to all the celebrities who flew halfway around the world to attempt a lasting statement in the front row (OK, Jared Leto's an exception here, for obvious reasons). Anyway, everyone else can just give up because Emma Watson—and her killer outfit at the Valentino show—is all the matters.

Going to bed or out to dinner, Rih?

It's no secret that Rihanna is a fashion icon—she even has a CFDA Fashion Award to prove it. While we're generally behind whatever Rihanna is ~doing~, we fully, 100% endorse this pajamas-as-real-clothes thing she has going on. First there was the matching silk set she wore to the Battleship premiere in 2012. Then there was the pink satin robe she wore to the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Now there's this nightgown. I mean, when I go out in my pajamas there's no question about whether or not I slept in them—I did. Definitely. Rihanna, though, is an entirely different story.

Rita Ora, Roberto Cavalli

A few months ago, Rita Ora posted a few photos on Instagram that showed her kissing Roberto Cavalli's wife and captioned one of them, "Get ready bots we might have another surprise for you @eva_cavalli." And then? Nothing. No follow-up. No announcement. No clarification. NO CLUE. We've been obsessing about it ever since, because what could it all mean?!

Welp, now we know. This morning, the luxury label announced that the style-icon-status singer is the new face of Roberto's Fall/Winter 2014 campaign. Along with the day-making news, they unveiled a few snaps from the shoot and whoa, you guys. I mean, we already knew she could model because she's previously posed in campaigns for Rimmel, Material Girl, and DKNY. And we already knew she could rock Roberto like no one else, because approximately 86% (rough estimate) of her wardrobe is Cavalli. (Remember when she wore that super-fancy, entirely sheer gown to Coachella? That was designed by, well, you guessed 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.
