Rihanna on the set of her "Pour It Up" video.

This weekend, when she wasn't busy posting pictures and memes on Instagram that mourned the end of Breaking Bad (*SQUEAL!* She's a BB #fanclub member, just like us!), Rihanna was sharing some behind-the-scenes photos from her upcoming "Pour It Up" music video. The song was released as a single last January, but the video release has been delayed after alleged ~dramz~ between Rih and the director, so it's unclear if these pictures mean the video is actually on its way, or if RiRi was just showing us what we're missing. Considering these two looks, we are BIG TIME pulling for this video to see the light of day.
One look features Rih in a silk, lavender romper, which is, oh, NBD, soaking wet. Did she pour
water it up all over herself? Is she sweaty from dancing, or maybe she just sweats a lot? The release of the video holds the answers to all our burning questions, and we need to see it. Rih is also decked out in a short, platinum, flapper-esque wig and a diamond choker (her fave). But TBH, the most intriguing thing about the look is her purpley-pink eyebrows—where did those come from?! The entire outfit has enough going on as is (see also: white wig, soaking romper, etc.), that we almost missed them completely! But once we took a closer gander, there was no way to stop looking at them. Ever.

YAAS! Looks like Britney Spears has been heeding her own advice because she is doing WERQUE, y’all. The Princess of Pop debuted a teaser from her video for “Work B****” on Instagram today, and HELLOOO LUXURY BIKINIS! The promo clip opens up with Britney looking RULL fierce at the edge of a pool, accompanied by a bevy of leather-clad dancers with knee-high stiletto boots, long-sleeved, zip-up bodysuits and shiny silver masks that you just KNOW Lady Gaga is dying to get her hands on (and probs Kanye, too). But let’s focus on what’s really important here: BRITNEY’S BIKINIS.
Nicki Minaj on 'Ellen.'

As we all well know, Nicki Minaj decided to go no shirt, no bra, just jacket for her appearance on The Ellen Show, which airs this afternoon. The show posted a preview of Ellen's interview with her Minajesty and, though the clip is under two minutes, it provides a lot of insight into Nicki's style and fashion choices. Instead of willfully avoiding all eye contact as I would've done, Ellen engages Nicki and even offers her a bra of her own—so generous, that Ellen. Nicki then explains that she didn't wear a bra because she hates them. YOLO. A quick spin through Nicki's Instagram will confirm that, yes, she does hate bras and frequently does not wear them. Especially when she's wearing a jacket with no shirt on underneath. In the interview she doesn't mention shirts, but I guess she hates them too?

UM. We are having a serious case of FOMO over here. Did we miss the memo about a Britney Spears convention? Is there a worldwide pop quiz? (BRB brushing up on multiplication tables.) Or is everyone just getting, like, reeeally literal with their back to school shopping? Obvi, we know on Wednesdays we wear pink—but nobody said anything about wearing pleated skirts on Thursdays! (THX A LOT, REGINA GEORGE.) No matter the reason, one thing’s for sure: according to Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, and Lorde schoolgirl style is totally trending.

According to M.I.A, yes, she has a collaboration with Versace, and, oh, NBD, it's coming out in two weeks. She apparently confirmed the news to a WWD reporter at the Balenciaga show this morning, simply saying, "I have a collaboration with Versace coming out in two weeks." M.I.A announces a collaboration with Versace the same way the rest of the world announces they're going to get a turkey sandwich for lunch: offhandedly and with no follow-up. But, HELLO, M.I.A, we need follow-up.
Animals, how are you doing? If you're anything like us, you just watched the trailer for the second season of Ke$ha's My Crazy Beautiful Life, like, fifteen times. There's a lot to take in! There are a TON of quintessential Ke$ha looks crammed into two minutes (face glitter, sparkly stage costumes, etc.etc.), so we've broken down everything you need to know, by the numbers. Immerse yourself in Ke$ha so you're ready for the second season's premiere on October 30th, when there will be even more Ke$ha #FASHUN.

So, it looks like this whole jacket without a shirt or bra on underneath THING is really happening. We first saw it on Rihanna (then, we saw it again). Then, it was included in Nicki Minaj's Kmart collection promos. And now, the Queen Barb has taken it to the IRL streets of Los Angeles. Nicki wore the latest iteration of this "look" to promote her newest fragrance, Minajesty, on Ellen and posted a lot of pictures to Instagram while wearing it. She calls the collection "boob pics." A very poetic title, indeed.
If you’re like us, your eyes were GLUED to Rihanna's twitter page yesterday afternoon as she engaged in quite the Twitter battle with fellow singer/songwriter, Teyana Taylor. The two threw down in a twitter spat that had the interwebz buzzing, and while the world twatched the ladies hurtle insults at one another, RiRi seized the moment to show off her upcoming fall RiRi Hearts MAC collection. Checkmate, Rihanna.
With just days left until we can get finally our hands on her autumn line, Rihanna teased a ton of snaps of the highly anticipated makeup range on her Instagram. And after seeing these pics, we CANNOT WAIT to get our hands on this stuff. If this collection is anything like her former one—yes, we're STILL obsessing over RiRi Woo—then beauty fans of the world, we are in for a treat!
Iggy Azalea performs at Philipp Plein's Milan Fashion Week 2014 show.

Fashion Week has turned into Fashion Three Weeks for Iggy Azalea. After sitting front row at a number of New York Fashion Week shows and performing at DKNY's 25th Anniversary Party, Iggy has surfaced in Milan and, oh, on Philipp Plein's runway. Plein's website describes Iggy as the ideal woman, "poised between haute couture tailoring and a mood that is unashamedly hip hop," so it only makes sense that she kicked-off the show with a live performance of "Work," wearing a short, structured, and slit-bearing dress. Iggy ditched her recently debuted pin-up style bangs for a sleek and tight bun and kept her makeup au naturel.
Miley Cyrus performing at iHeart Radio Music Festival.

Happy Monday: here are some pictures from my weekend I want to share with you. JUST KIDDING, these are pictures of Miley Cyrus performing at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas this weekend. Well, Miley has certainly turned up the heat on her performance wardrobe, and it seems, IT'S GOTTEN SO HOT SHE'S HAD TO REMOVE ALL HER CLOTHES. Her first outfit (on the right) was similar to the one she wears in the "Wrecking Ball" video, as well in the trailer for the Miley: The Movement—the girl loves a white crop top with white bottoms like none other. Unlike her other crop tops, which existed on their own, this white lace-up bustier is tied to her white scalloped shorts. It's a lace-up romper and is probably the most annoying piece of clothing in the world to take off.
