If anyone was going to debut Tom Ford’s namesake jersey dress from his Fall ‘14 collection, OF COURSE it was going to be Beyonce. She pretty much has a claim to it considering the “knockoff of a knockoff” was majorly inspired by her husband’s song—you know, the one that boasts the hook that's written all over it. Plus, let’s be real: The one thing Queen Bey can’t resist is a good sequined dress. So Beyonce, being Beyonce, hit the stage wearing the runway creation during her Mrs. Carter Show yesterday (March 18) in Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam.

Charli XCX and Iggy Azalea have been getting a lot of mileage out of their Clueless-themed video for “Fancy.” It’s easy to understand why, considering we’re still quoting the movie 19 years after its release and wishing we had Cher’s wardrobe. For their live Late Night With Seth Meyers performance of the song—which just broke onto Billboard’s Hot 100, sitting at #88—the pair brought out a third iteration of their Horowitz-approved ensembles.
Solange for 'Harper's Bazaar.'

Here we were thinking Solange just grabs whatever is in her closet and heads out the door (you know, ***Flawless style). But in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she reveals there's actually a method to her covetably fearless bright dressing. Sol says, "You can pull images of me from seven to 14 years ago and I was absolutely nuts. I have always been drawn to interesting pieces and colors, but I didn't quite know how to limit myself and make those statement pieces work." Solange doesn’t exactly give away her magic in the pages of the feature, but she does hint that reorganizing her closet helped her "develop a style that felt like [her]."
Who wore gingham and cowboy boots better?

While Miley Cyrus has been changing up her Bangerz Tour wardrobe on the regular, her affinity for pairing red gingham and cowboy boots remains. She wore a full gingham jumpsuit on Miley Unplugged, but for the tour, she swapped that for a bejeweled crop top and high-waisted, high-cut briefs. Seemingly taking a page from Miley's country book, Amanda Seyfried's W spread features the actress in a very similar look. The question is, though: Who wore it better?
Amanda's Louis Vuitton bikini is paired with burgundy Lucchese boots. I know this is just a shoot and she's not actually venturing out into the world to do anything, but what could she do in this outfit, TBH? Tread water with difficulty? Ride a horse and risk the worst chafing in the world? It seems like the only option is to lounge glamorously in a fuzzy Michael Kors sweater, especially since she does it so well.
Jennifer Lopez in a still from "I Luh Ya Papi" video and at the Grammys in 2000.

In addition to serving up a whole lotta half-naked dudes (#hey), Jennifer Lopez's new music video for "I Luh Ya Papi" serves up some gender equality realness. At the beginning of the video, a record label exec is pitching video locations to J.Lo and her friends (I always bring mine to meetings too) and they're, like, really terrible. A water park? How about no. The zoo? Hard pass. Jennifer and her friends decide the video should feature Jennifer in the role of a ~typical~ video guy, with the gender roles reversed. There is, for example, a shirtless man washing a car/his body while J.Lo and her friends look on. Typical Thursday where I come from, TBH.
One of biggest gender reversals in the video, at least fashion-wise, though, is when J.Lo dons a jumpsuit that is quite reminiscent of her infamous 2000 Grammys dress. I can't believe people made a big deal about this, you guys. She was wearing a full-length Versace gown that showed a little bit of chest and stomach skin. Everything else was covered. Simon Cowell wore deeper Vs on American Idol every Tuesday and Wednesday night on network TV. Anyway, it seems that because she is imitating men in her video, J.Lo wears a similar print in a similar color scheme, but it ends in pants, rather than a skirt. Talk about a power suit, riiight?

When Iggy Azalea tweeted that her Woodies Festival outfits would be bringing some “schoolgirl realness,” we weren’t sure if that meant she’d be reprising her Clueless-inspired “Fancy” look or taking inspiration from schoolgirl looks her pop peers have worn. Lucky for us, her love of Clueless fashion knows no bounds. Plus, Iggy doesn’t abandon a theme. So she stepped out in an entirely new costume, inspired by one of the greatest teen films in history.
Iggy had already worn Cher’s iconic suit in the video, so last night she wore a pair of yellow plaid hotpants of the same pattern and styled it with a sheer black shirt, a gold chain belt, and, of course, knee highs. Charli XCX—who performed “Fancy” with Iggy and four background dancers wearing matching plaid bottoms and yellow-and-black sports bras—wore a less obvious Clueless-inspired look that Cher still would have approved of: a hot-pink-trimmed black minidress with a chain-link cutout heart and, yes, knee highs.
Lady Gaga on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
As expected, Lady Gaga is in Austin at SXSW. Before her appearance on the Doritos #Boldstage, she hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live in a voluminous white dress and hat designed by Gareth Pugh. Oh, and they're both made from coffee filters. *pauses to allow you to process that information* Gaga revealed that in an attempt to "upcycle," she chose the dress and hat for her performance in Austin. Gee, I wonder where she got the idea to create her Austin wardrobe from household items? IDK, maybe these Doritos dress suggestions I offered last week? I see you, Gaga.
Lady Gaga on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
She and Jimmy discussed fashion (she got her flying dress at CVS, JK) and he inquired about her choices, and whether we'd ever see her in "Gap jeans" or "a nice pair of khakis." Ever the self-promoter, she told him to watch her performance because he might be in for a surprise. Did she dress like a Best Buy employee as Jimmy suggests? Did she wear a dress made from Doritos bags? Nah.
Nicki Minaj on the 'Senile' set in Moschino.

Witnessing a model wear a black leather two-piece with "Moschino" written in all-caps gold lettering across her stomach, forehead, leg, and boobs, your first thought might be, "Wow, who could possibly find a reason to wear that outfit IRL?" Well, we now have an answer for you: Nicki Minaj! The MC recently uploaded a massive batch of Instagram shots, each one featuring Jeremy Scott's aforementioned badass bikini. The impromptu photo shoot took place on the set of her video for "Senile," the single from Young Money's Rise of an Empire compilation (which explains why Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Tyga make cameos in some of the pics).
Emma Watson on the cover of 'Elle.'

When you think of cowgirl-chic fashion, several celebrities probably come to mind immediately. Dolly Parton, obviously. Or maybe her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, especially with her recent MTV Unplugged wardrobe. But you prooobably don't think of Emma Watson...ever. The brainy British actress is more Shakespeare than Stagecoach, for sure. But she totally has us fooled on her new Elle cover, where she looks as comfortable in her Western-inspired outfits as any ranch hand we've ever seen (which, granted, isn't many, but go with us here). She IS still Emma Watson, though, so of course she mixes her signature poise and style with the subtle country feel of the shoot. She starts with a double denim exas tuxedo (designer-made, natch), and the inside photos feature even more down-home flair.
Iggy is not going to school, believe it or not.

With the 2014 Woodies Festival mere hours away at SXSW, we can barely wait to see what Iggy Azalea has planned, wardrobe-wise. On Tuesday, Iggy tweeted that her costumes would be serving up some schoolgirl realness, and we know when Iggy does a theme, she does it hard (see: Halloween, the video for "Fancy"). In anticipation of her outfit, we figured we'd see what she'd look like in some schoolgirl inspired outfits other stars have worn. She has, of course, already given us a preview of what she looks like in a cheerleading uniform and Clueless attire (both school-ish...), but these are some different styles. Let's take a look.
