Beyonce for Vogue.
FINALLY. It's here! Beyonce's official Vogue cover is finally HERE. We know it was hardly an entire weekend that we had to wait for this since the Givenchy-clad images of Bey on the Power Issue first leaked, but compared to the break-neck Beyonce Update time we'd grown accustomed to over the weeks flanking her Super Bowl halftime performance (a hotly buzzed about Inauguration national anthem, more images from GQ, rapid-fire rehearsal photos, a new fragrance campaign, and a gigantic world tour announcement), holding this over our heads for more than 24 hours KILLED. Thankfully, though, Vogue has quelled our maddening anticipation with the release of not only Queen (or King, if you prefer) Bey's cover but her seriously drop-dead spread.

While you were out flooding Instagram with pictures of your snow day (or your otherwise Saturday morning for anyone out of the range of Winter Storm Nemo), Beyonce's Vogue cover leaked courtesy of Beyonce Fan vertical BeyonceLite. Mrs. Carter graces the March "Power Issue" cover, a vision of feminine strength. Her hair, a tawny brown, is swept up in a chic updo, and her beauty look is matte and natural with peachy beige-colored lipstick and winged double eyeliner. The makeup is continued into the inside pages where Queen Bey shape-shifts between scarlet boudoir wear and floaty separates, but it's on the cover that she wears the MOST boss lady outfit of them all: crisp, asymmetrical Givenchy that's both soft and stalwart.

Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, and Tina Knowles are a leather-loving clique.

Ain't nobody f****** with Beyonce's clique. King Bey posted this Instagram of her posing with her Destiny's Child ladies Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, her mom Tina Knowles, and her cousin Angela Beyincé yesterday with the caption "#myclique." Not only do we love this because images of lady boss posses are hard for us to ignore, but we also need to point out that every woman in this photo is wearing black leather in one iteration or another.
Dang! Just when we thought we knew all the biggest cat ladies in the game, Ke$ha pops up with THIS insane photo (above) to give all the other feline fanatics a serious run for their money. (We're looking at you, Taylor Swift.) While visiting Japan, K-Money got DECKED. OUT. in all the finest cat fashions including a black sweater with a cat face on it, a black beanie with studded cat ears, and a KILLER sparkly pink cat eye. ME-OW. But, that doesn't even count all the pieces around her—peep those cute cat slippers, gloves, tea pot, and gosh knows what else! Our hearts cannot handle all this cat amazingness. Must. Visit. Japan. Immediately.
In all our tracking of Beyonce's journey to her Super Bowl halftime performance, we've chronicled just about every drop of fashion-juice we could squeeze from this thing. From early predictions of her stage ensemble to deets on her backup dancers' gold manicures in pre-recorded holographic backdrops and just about every little rehearsal style moment in between. Everything except these amazeballs, geometric print leggings. That's because (much like Bey's world tour ticket pre-sale) they're selling out everywhere!!
You may remember us freaking out over Rihanna's super simple (and sultry!) Rolling Stone photo shoot from last week, but yesterday RiRi revealed even MORE Terry Richardson outtakes via Instagram, and we were hit with a mega surprise: She has a new tattoo, y'all! Now, we don't mean to be creepy, but, like, we know Rihanna's 18 or so tattoos (Rihanna Daily did an AMAZING job laying out all her tats year by year), and this is one that we've definitely never seen before.
We first pegged black and white pants as trending way back in October, just in time for Halloween. But turns out this isn't just a flash-in-the-pan fad, because three months later we're still obsessed, and it's all thanks to Miley Cyrus. The actress and singer has proven her achromatic jeans to be a tried and true closet staple, often wearing them with a black top, combat boots and some key accessories. She tweeted a photo in the studio earlier this week, pairing her MotelRocks pants with a tank top, huge hoop earrings, and a black beanie, and then just days later our girl's at it again! This time, she's posing with Lil Mama in (slightly) smaller hoops and short-sleeves. Hey, Miley's clearly onto something— jailhouse stripes, Beetlejuice bottoms, whatever you want to call them. They're everywhere these days, from the Marc Jacobs runway to our fave style bloggers, and we've rounded up the best pairs to buy for yourself below!
Demi Lovato on the cover of British "Cosmo On Campus."

Our deep love for Demi Lovato is not a thing we keep secret around here at MTV Style. From her killer pipes to her arguable Topshop addiction to her airtight beauty game, Demi hits all of our favorite intersections of music and style. That's why, even though we're pretty sure this cover snap for the Spring Term 2013 issue of British Cosmo On Campus is recycled from Lovato's American Cosmopolitan cover shoot with Marc Hom, we're STILL bananas excited for it. I mean, look at this girl! The windblown loose ringlets? The sweet, underwire dress with a natural waist? The GLOWING bronzed skin that is starkly reminding us of our severe Vitamin D deficiency? She's a goddess.
Quvenzhané Wallis says puppy purses are "her signature."

This year's littlest Oscars Best Actress nominee, Quvenzhané Wallis, initially captured our hearts in the riveting indie Beasts of the Southern Wild, and as we've soldiered on through awards season, she's caught our eye as a rising style star. Her red carpet steez strays infrequently from her go-to cocktail frock + shiny flats + curls, but one style element that's definitely a constant in her public appearance outfits is: a plushy puppy purse! During a recent stint on The Ellen Show, Quvenzhané revealed to DeGeneres that she has "about 20" different puppy purses, and confirmed that she will be toting one at this month's Academy Awards. "Yes, of course," she told Ellen, "That's my signature! I've had this since Utah." Utah! She's referring, of course, to last year's Sundance Film Festival when and where Beasts premiered.
We've known this day, the one wherein Florence Welch finally shares a bit of her incomparable style savvy with the public by way of some sort of personally unique design venture, was a long time coming. From her Karl Lagerfeld muse status to her Gucci-heavy tour ensembles, we've been clawing for even the smallest morsel of Flo's fashion expertise and impeccable personal style to somehow be imparted unto us. Thanks to the brand new jewelry collection (reportedly inspired by her Ceremonials album) that just hit her Flotique, we juuuust might have a chance to absorb a bit of Flo's style prowess via osmosis through the rose gold and rhodium.
