Sure, Selena Gomez slinks down red carpet after red carpet in the highest of high fashion duds on the regular, but she's also a huge proponent of the affordable side of fashion. She often comes right out and says it herself, but her actions already speak volumes, designing and fronting her own Dream Out Loud line for KMart and racking up frequent flyer miles at Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. Her outfit of choice for last night's Alliance for Children's Rights Dinner was no exception. Sel hit the
red erm, printed carpet in UO.
Somehow, by some celebrity magic, Selena Gomez has the uncanny ability to be simultaneously SMOKIN' hot and cute as a button. Perhaps it has something to do with her having the rich, dulcet voice of a grown woman while also having the babyface of a 15-year-old, but we'd venture to guess there's a lot of both bubbling under that sweet turned-up nose and ZOMG ALL THAT HAIR. This "The Look" video interview is kind of the perfect example of all of the above. Shot immediately following the very glamorously mature Harper's Bazaar cover shoot we saw drop yesterday, Selena and Bazaar's Laura Brown have a fireside chat about everything from Miss Gomez's own secrets to "luxuriant hair," putting outfits together, and what kinds of things she likes to see on boys. It's silly and adorable and we all want to be best friends with Selena, so we can raid each others' closets and practice over-the-shoulder smolder gazes in our new looks. While we daydream (dare I say, dream out loud?) about our girl crush lady date, peep these five fun facts we learned from the interview below!
Rihanna at the launch of her River Island collection in London.
Amidst all of the excitement, the runway show and the campaign and all of that, we kind of forgot that the day was fast approaching that we would actually be able to BUY Rihanna's River Island collection for ourselves very soon. The collection is available in the US via Opening Ceremony today, but it also had its launch in the UK last night. Rihanna was in attendance at the London opening, rocking, of course, some choice cuts from her own collection. One of the most showstopping (and for some, eyebrow raising) pieces from the collection are the double denim overalls, which break down your traditional Osh Kosh classics to include crop top and a pair of jeans with a double waistband. Don't get what the heck we're saying, well Ri wore the non-traditional togs to her store opening last night, and we have to say she looks killer in them. Conjuring up some serious Aaliyah vibes, that's for sure. Rihanna styled the jeans not with the matching crop top but with a relaxed, cropped white tea and perfect dark purple lipstick. We're loving how her super glam, long hair adds some elegance to the otherwise street wear-leaning look.
Beyonce is blonde in her new "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" promo images.

STOP THE PRESSES. Beyonce just uploaded a new promo image for her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, and she is platinum blonde. That's right, people. PLAT. I. NUM. BLONDE. I can't. Granted, we recognize that there are a bajillion mind-blowing things that Photoshop can do, and Bey has certainly embraced the software's digital magic powers in the name of Pepsi more than once before (see: this Super Bowl lip color switch and last month's pop art ad). We are also well-aware that this could just be a really good wig (when you cover Vogue Power Issue, you have the clout to source that kind of stuff). HOWEVER, you can't blame us for getting a little excited about a major beauty change like this.

We've liked Kat Dahlia for a while now, ever since her smoky soulful breakout single "Gangsta" debuted late last year. However, today the singer has dropped the song's video upon the world and well, let's just say we're officially obsessed. Shot in her Miami hometown, the clip follows the 21-year-old throughout her local haunts, with the same gritty flashbacks and shadowy edge that we've come to associate with the autobiographical track. Although Kat's vocal prowess is NOTHING new, something that wasn't quite so obvious— until now, that is— is her killer style. With a self-described "boho urban glam" wardrobe and an affinity for mixing designer and fast fashion, we got the chance to quiz her on all this and more when she stopped by MTV recently. Check out our exclusive interview with Kat Dahlia below!
Rihanna in DKNY x Opening Ceremony and an original tour costume jacket.
It makes perfect sense that, on the eve of her River Island Collection becoming available for the thirsty American masses, Rihanna would wear a look comprised entirely of her own designs as well as those of her exclusive retailer, Opening Ceremony. We knew that we recognized that jumpsuit immediately as the Spring '91 Sweat Jumpsuit ($315.00) from DKNY's collaboration with OC, and we also thought there was something awfully familiar about that racing jacket. While the fact that it's decorated with the phrase "Rude Boy," a reference, of course, to Rihanna's 2010 single off of Rated R, but more than that, it's something of a catchphrase for the singer. While the over sized cut and color scheme didn't immediately scream original piece, we still had this feeling. And then we remembered it (eureka!): the jacket was heavily featured in the b-roll for Rihanna's Diamonds World Tour Wardrobe First Look video, which you can watch below!
Miley Cyrus shows off her new haircolor.

To state the obvious, it has been a HUGE couple of months for Miley Cyrus and her hair. We all remember when the singer first took the short hair plunge back in the summer, right?! Then she went even shorter in the fall, revealing a close side-cropped 'do. And now, after inspiring fellow pixie fans like Lena Dunham to chop hers off and earning a slot on our Best Hair of 2012 list, the pop star has taken her new look up a notch, tinting her bottle-blonde locks EVEN lighter than before with shimmery silver highlights. She showed off the change in Los Angeles on Friday while heading into the studio, and subsequently sent Twitter into overdrive about her new "blue" color. However, Miley was quick to clear the air that the hue isn't actually blue like everyone originally thought.
Slowly but surely, we're inching closer to Iggy Azalea's debut album The New Classic. While there's still no official release date, we've been getting small tastes of what's to come. A little over a week ago, Iggy dropped a timed preview of "Work," the first track off the forthcoming record, straight to her official SoundCloud. The link may not play anymore, but according to Iggy herself, it won't be long until we get the full music video. The native Australian MC took to Twitter late last month to get her Azaleans to save March 11 for the drop date over the weekend has been rolling out adorable behind-the-scenes photos of the "Work" set, Mini Iggy's video reprise, and both girls' decadent wardrobes.
M.I.A. performing at Paris Fashion Week, and a look from Kenzo's Fall 2013 show.
Be still our hearts, for the Kenzo Fall 2013 show has them all aflutter. Beyond just presenting a collection filled with beautiful, lush, challenging silhouettes at Paris Fashion Week, Carole Lim and Humberto Leon also gave us the gift of some brand new music from M.I.A., which is something you KNOW we've been waiting for with bated breath. The eight and a half minute long Matangi Mixtape includes snippets of multiple new songs as well as countless beats and samples, and while we can't write many of the lyrics here, they contain that signature M.I.A. razor-wit and total lack of cowardice and we LOVE them. While representatives from Kenzo say that the mix is an "original song for the Kenzo 2013 show," we wonder if this isn't a preview into what we have coming from M.I.A. in the not so distant future. Whatever this is, we want more.

Oh no big deal, just getting custom Givenchy portrait tees delivered to us, just being on a first-name basis with Riccardo Tisci. Oh wait, that was Rihanna, not us?! *Dream sequence dissolves, siiiiiiigh* Yesterday, Rihanna posted a photo on her Instagram, revealing a tee with a very familiar looking portrait painted on it. A somewhat Impressionist rendering, the portrait is of a woman with a close cropped hairstyle, bright red lips and big eyes. Sound familiar? Yup, Rihanna can now wear her own face. We're guessing that this super-glam gift was a belated birthday gift from the designer, and wow, what a good one it is. The present also comes just as Rihanna's River Island collection is heading stateside. It was announced that Opening Ceremony will be the exclusive US retailer for the line, and will be celebrating the partnership with an exhibition, or a RIHtrospective, as it's being called. More information after the jump!
