Mariah Carey's "Good Morning America" wardrobe malfunction does not phase her.

It goes without saying that Mariah Carey is FABULOUS. All the way from her Cinderella-themed wedding vow renewal ceremony to that Azzedine Alaïa couture wardrobe to those superhuman pipes that cemented her status as a household name for decades. Accordingly, when Mimi does something, she does it in a BIG way, even if that something is as simple or potentially embarrassing as a wardrobe malfunction on live TV. Mariah hit up Good Morning America this morning to pop off the show's annual Summer Concert Series in Central Park. And pop she did! Or rather, her dress did.
Rihanna in Morocco and a look from Jeremy Scott's spring 2013 runway.

If there's one thing we love about Rihanna, it's the fact that she documents every part of her oh-so-amazing life for ALL to see. (Like, seriously, just take one peek at her Instagram. The end.) When she's traveling the world, we get a little taste of the country's culture through RiRi's eyes, and we kiiind of can't get enough of it. This morning she landed in Morocco, and Ri immediately traded in her typical graphic tee and short-shorts steez for an Arab-inspired ensemble. She sported a leopard print burqa under a backward snapback with a solid black maxi dress (looks like the one from her River Island collection!), red hot nails, and black leggings. What's interesting about this outfit, though, is that it's incredibly similar to a look from Jeremy Scott's spring 2013 NYFW runway show. Leopard burqa? Check. Black snapback like the faux croc New Era one on the catwalk? Check. Solid black dress? Check. The fashion girl in us hopes SO HARD that she was inspired by J. Scott and tried to do her own take on his "Arab Spring" inspired collection, but we may never know!
A still from Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It" music video.

If you're anything like me, every time you hear Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It," you have the hook stuck in your head for DAYS. Suffice it to say, it's been basically half-a-week since Selly did her thang on the Billboard stage, and I'm STILL muttering "nananana"s under my breath in the middle of conversations. I'm sure you've been playing the music video on endless repeat (just as I have at my desk), and I'm pretty confident the general consensus among all who set eyes on the clip is that this new, grown-up look is a good one on Selena. The maturity of her "Come & Get It" steez is due in part to excellent risk-taking couture but is mostly thanks to that KILLER bright red lipstick.
2 events, 2 different prints-on-prints outfits. Because Solange is awesome like that.

Solange's trademark patterned style may not have technically begun with *that* brick motif pantsuit (a quick Getty search shows she was test-driving the look long before that), but let's be real for a sec. Ever since the singer won us over with last fall's "Losing You" music video, her outfit choices reflect one seriously steadfast fashion philosophy: more prints are DEFINITELY merrier. From her Met Gala Suno gown to those matchy ladylike performance outfits, this is a star who's taken a very particular look and totally owned it. And now, proving just how versatile these wild patterns can really be, Solange has given us an extra dose of wardrobe inspiration with two very different twists on the trend.
Miley in #allgolderthang.

Knowing the little that we know about the business of making hit records, we know that it's a grueling, often times 24 hour process. Miley Cyrus has been busting her butt in the studio a lot as of late, and while we might be more inclined to work in, oh I dont know, some jeans and a comfy tee, Miss Miley has a slightly more glam wardrobe when she's on her grind. Getting ready to release her single #WeCantStop and her video for Angels & Ashtrays sometime this week (supposedly), as well as attending the Billboard Music Awards, you would think Miley would be too exhausted to turn it up on a regular work day, but wait, this is MILEY we're talking about here. The singer tweeted a photo of herself in the studio with the caption "@Versace #celine #STUDIO #allgolderthang,"in which she is not only wearing a killer pair of Versace logo sandals but also an AMAZING black and white striped bow top and a pair of black ankle-baring pants.
Diana Agron, Zosia Mamet, and Alexa Chung at the premiere of 'These Girls'.
Last night, a group of rad ladies got together at the request of Glamour magazine to perform a series of monologues called "These Girls" at New York City's Joe's Pub. The group, which included Dianna Agron, Zosia Mamet, Alexa Chung, Emma Roberts and more, touched on everything from the internet, to bullying, to boys and everything in between. While we're dying to hear each of the girls' monologues for ourselves, we're also totally jaws-to-the-floor over their classically elegant outfits. Springtime is often an occasion for light, airy, colorful frocks, but Dianna, Zosia, and Alexa all opted to play with monochrome and textures in their still seasonally appropriate ensembles, a move which we think really worked.
Beyonce performs "Grown Woman" in Kenzo on The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

Just in time for her "Grown Woman" track's mass leaked circulation around the interwebz, Beyonce (or Team Beyonce) has JUST uploaded behind-the-scenes footage of the number's Paris premiere. FINALLY, after just under a month of stalking grainy smart phone-captured videos and the few high-quality images Bey posted to her Tumblr, we actually get to see that custom, technicolor, animal print-esque Kenzo romper in action! Mrs. Carter debuts the song with an inspired dance number that has Bey and her backup dancers (also in what looks like custom Kenzo) swimming in energy up to their eyeballs. Each girl has a kind of extra mini-train situation attached at the waist and ruffling out into an abbreviated cascade down the back of the romper, adding a little extra volume, movement, and drama to the truncated stage outfit. Fortunately for us, when Beyonce does something, she never does it half-way—she and her team unveiled all at once a grand total of EIGHT behind-the-scenes video packages from The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour!
Rita Ora debuts blue hair.

Well, looks like Katy Perry's not the only one pumped up for the new Smurfs 2 movie this summer! Rita Ora's feeling blue, too— but rather than dressing in head-to-toe cerulean like our girl KP, Rita took cues from Katy circa 2012 and dyed her HAIR. Fresh off her gorgeous Met Ball appearance earlier this month, where she rocked a custom Thakoon gown, the pop star showed off her new blue 'do on Instagram earlier today. She blasted out two photos of the bold look this morning, saying "Today it's smurf day #rehearsals #album2 #bluehairday". Wait, so in addition to a brand new haircolor, Rita's ALSO prepping her new album?! We.Cant.Wait.
Selena Gomez performs at 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

Talk about a change of pace! Earlier tonight, Selena Gomez hit the 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet in bright, neon, summery Atelier Versace—a vision of '90s raver steez updated for the step-and-repeat. For her performance, though, Selly opted for warm metallics and over-the-top glamour, swaddling herself in all-gold-everything from the tippy-top of her fashion bindi to the hem of her shimmering double-slit curtain skirt. Gomez performed her hit single "Come And Get It" in an ensemble we're affectionately referring to as "Bollywood meets that one Princess Leia outfit courtesy of Jabba The Hut *WINK*, also Barbarella"—point being, girl looked HOTT (two Ts very necessary).
