Demi Lovato without makeup (and no, we didn't photoshop this AT ALL).

Holy smokes, Demi Lovato. Ok we're not surprised, but Demi posted a photo of herself bare faced and presumably fresh out of bed this morning and she looks flawless. In a campaign she launched on Twitter this morning, the singer is encouraging her fans to go makeup and Instagram filter free today to show off their natural beauty, and to show them just how committed she is to supporting her Lovatics, she naturally took the plunge first. We want the number of Demi's dermatologist, because it's clear that she takes immaculate care of her skin. While it's too late for us--we already put on our makeup this morning, we LOVE that Demi is encouraging her fans to appreciate and share their natural beauty. It really is sad that a photo of a star without their face on, as they say, is even newsworthy, but these days it really is. And don't let that make you think we don't love makeup, we do, and we love playing around with it and trying new looks, but we also wish there was more room for women to just be themselves.
Beyonce's actual British "Vogue" magazine cover.

Remember that time we hand-drew Beyonce's leaked British Vogue cover? Welp, dropping right alongside a cryptic teaser goading fans to "#BeyHereNow" at 9 AM EDT tomorrow morning (sorry, wait, WHERE is it I should BEY??), the real thing is finally out now! Finally, we get to see the high resolution, full-size, real thing. We get to see Bey in all her baby blue (baby Blue?) striped crop top, sequin pencil skirt, Jonathan Saunders-clad glory. This is exciting to us on so many levels, but perhaps most uniquely to us is the reasoning that now we can check our work and see whether we got any of those guessed cover lines right!
Demi Lovato matched her nails to her outfit on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

We've seen Demi Lovato show her love of heavy metal hardware from (literally) head to toe, but for her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, she took it to the next level with a jacket printed with trompe l'oeil studs and matching spiked nails. Fresh off revealing her very bare DEMI album art, Demi paid Kimmel and his Los Angeles studios a vist to chat about a grip of topics, from her X Factor experience, how she broke her fibula, and what to expect from her new album.

We initially thought Demi Lovato's "Heart Attack" single art was edgy, but our girl really outdid herself for her DEMI album. Miss Lovato first teased the art this morning with a tweet directing her fans to a site where they could "scratch" to reveal the full photo. Several clicks and nine panels later, Demi serves excellent smoldering face for the album cover, clad in little more than black lipstick and smudgy silver body paint.
Every time Easter rolls around, we're always sure to spot celebs decked out in their Sunday best—you know, the usual floral-printed frock or pastel-colored blazer. This year, though, we were caught a little off-guard by some of our favorite musicians' Easter get-ups as they took a very literal stylistic approach to the holiday. Long story short, Mariah Carey, Katy Perry and Diddy all dressed up as Easter Bunnies. Like, actual rabbits. With ears. And white fur. Don't believe us? Well, Mariah posted a Twitpic of herself and hubby Nick Cannon with the caption, "Happy Easter dahhlings...I finally caught the Easter bunny." She sported a strapless ombre pink dress with nude heels, a diamond necklace, square shades and, of course, some bunny ears! Nick went all-out in his rabbit costume, which featured floppy ears, a bunny nose and teeth, a purple blazer with blue and green lapels, and over-sized white gloves. So. Amazing.
Ciara wears looks from Givenchy's Resort 2013 and Spring 2013 collections.

Despite its name, menswear is so totally NOT just for guys. We've been fans of stealing style ideas from the boys on the runway for a while now, but now Ciara has one-upped us all by lifting a pair of outfits straight from the Givenchy men's catwalk! And she looks AMAZING, we might add. Immediately after sitting front row at Riccardo Tisci's Paris Fashion Week womenswear show last month, Ciara stopped by Music Choice’s SWRV TV Network in New York City sporting a printed jacket from the men's Resort 2013 line. Splashed with an updated military pattern, there's NO arguing that this luxe bomber adds a decidedly masculine edge to the rest of her all-black outfit. We love how the topper's oversize fit complements her super skinny leather pants and heeled boots...and these perfectly opposite proportions are one of the reasons menswear on ladies works so well.
Nicki Minaj WERKS it in a parking lot.

It's obvious that Nicki Minaj has fashion on the brain—she's currently creating her first-ever clothing collection for Kmart, and she just can't stop name-dropping her favorite designers on Twitter. Earlier this month, she got into some serious #AlexanderMcQueenRealness at a poolside photo shoot, and last night she mentioned even more designers at (what looks like) an impromptu parking lot photo sesh. She posted a pic to Twitter with nothing but "#reality" written in the caption. Apparently, she was talking about red bottom reality (see: the giant text she plastered across the photo), which we assume is a nod to the leopard Christian Louboutin stiletto booties she's sporting. As for the rest of the outfit? Don't worry—Barbz gives us alllll the deets on that too.
Seriously, British "Vogue," we need to know if this is real.

Okay, so... Let me explain. Yesterday, a photo leaked (courtesy of Beylite's Instagram) of what LOOKS like a forthcoming issue of some international Vogue magazine with the always lovely Beyonce gracing the cover. Since last night was the UK premiere of Beyonce's Life Is But A Dream documentary and the May issue of British Vogue would hit newsstands right as King Bey's The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour rolled into town AND Beyonce is wearing an entire look ripped from Jonathan Saunders' Spring/Summer 2013 collection (the current season!), it seems a pretty educated guess by Beylite to pin this on the UK edition of the glossy global franchise. For followers of fashion and gigantic Beyonce Stans (uhhh, what has two thumbs and made that "Bow Down" single art her Facebook cover photo???*), this is MAJOR news. You also probably get that. What you DON'T get, however, is why we're posting about this with a hand-drawn version of the suspected cover.
You guyyyyyys! It's Lady Gaga's BIRTHDAY today! We imagine Gagaloo is taking it easy this year, resting up and cuddling with Fozzi, noshing on unicorn-shaped sheet cake, but with a day this big (HELLOOOO, this is the anniversary of Gaga being BORN [this way] after all), someone has to celebrate in her honor. Since she already has a custom Ken Borochov 24-Karat gold wheelchair, that sets the gifting bar a little high for our taste, so instead, we're honoring Mother Monster on her special day by swaddling ourselves (don't worry about the logic here, it's circular) in the illest Gaga Stan Swag available.
Mariah Carey in coral, and Nicki Minaj (with Smokey Robinson) also in...coral.
Watch out, y'all, there may be trouble brewing on the American Idol set, and it's giving us traumatic flashbacks to our high school days. We had to do a double-take last night, when Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj took to the judges table in...wait, are they wearing the same dress? THE HORROR! Both Mariah and Nicki, notorious rivals, had decided to wear solid coral dresses for the Motown episode of the show, and although the cuts were definitely not identical, it seemed like it had to be something of an unfortunate coincidence. Did you ever show up to a school dance in the EXACT same dress as your sworn frenemy? Nightmarish. To add insult to injury, yesterday was Mariah's birthday. The bright side, though: they both look amazing in this color.
