Bath time for Lady Gaga and her wig.

We all know Lady Gaga is a big fan of her new wig. It seems like she never takes it off and, actually, based on a photo she posted to Instagram last night, she doesn't—she bathes in it! Um, is bathing in a wig something you should do? While I fully thought the answer would be a resounding NO, I actually found a few sites that suggest you shower with a wig if you have one made of human hair! Who knew?
Other sites suggest you don't because, uh, wigs are expensive and swirling around water with them on can tangle them, so it seems like the decision is up to the wig wearer. If you're just looking for a photo op like Lady Gaga, you can pop your wig on, get someone to take your photo, and then take it off before you do any damage.
The latest episode of Lily McMenamy's (brilliant! underrated! hilariously entertaining!) web series for i-D guest stars the legendary Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, who imparts style wisdom and life advice (specifically and winningly: "FASHUN HAVE TO BE FUN") while wearing a Jeremy Scott track suit accessorized with Chanel bags worn as necklaces.
If you're all, "Wait, what, who?," Carlyne is the genius stylist behind Anna Wintour's first-ever Vogue cover (and about a billion covers since), and Lily is the 22-year-old model offspring of '90s supermodel Kristen McMenamy and French nightclub owner Hubert Boukobza. Together they're the coolest chicks you could ever want to have a slumber party and girl talk with. And since you can't actually do that, watching this video is the next best thing.

If you don't keep close tabs on Lady Gaga like I do (um, it's my job, so bye H8ERz), you may have missed the large, curly wig she's been wearing since last week. She's been wearing it with a slew of different looks, but all have one thing in common—it's hard to deny how Cher that wig is. Gaga is not the only pop star paying attention to Cher's past looks—Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and more have all taken pages from her long and iconic book.
Below are a few of the most obvious homages/imitators/etc. If you're a pop star looking to start a trend, you can rest assured that Cher (probably) did it first.

Miley's Bangerz Tour wardrobe is heavy on the sequins and cutouts. Guess who was wearing a similar white outfit in 1975? Cher.
They say great minds think alike, but it appears great minds dress alike, too. Three of the magazines that always have a spot on our nightstands—Elle, Vogue, and Vanity Fair—(unknowingly?) called in the exact same Christian Dior dress from the Fall 2014 collection for their cover shoots, which means two things: (1) lace-up detailing is going to be huge this season and (2) someone's PR team may have messed up (or is brillz because hi, here we are talking about it).
Karlie Kloss has a jam-packed schedule and résumé. Not only is she a Victoria's Secret model, a student at Harvard, an entrepreneur and chef (specializing in gluten-free cookies, natch), besties with Taylor Swift, and, NBD, a member of the House of Style family. Well, now you can add charitable eyewear designer to the mix.
Kloss has partnered up with Warby Parker, the eyewear retailer. Her collaboration with the sunglasses company includes six limited-edition styles. The three frames, each of which come in two colorways, retail for $145 ($195 with prescription), and are made of Japanese titanium frames.
Ed Sheeran's MTV documentary Nine Days and Nights premieres tonight on MTV at 11 p.m. EST, but our frandz at MTV News have a preview of the show and it involves Taylor Swift, Drake, and needlepoint.
It's no secret that Taylor loves to ~craft~, but we had no idea needlepoint (specifically) was among her crafty talents. The above cross stitch was made by Taylor and gifted to Ed, which makes sense because it features the both of them. It'd be weird if she gave it to, like, Hailee Steinfeld instead. It also features the phrase "The struggle is real" and some lyrics from "Started from the Bottom." Fact: Taylor is not the first person to embroider hip-hop lyrics onto canvas—below are a few of our faves. Enjoy 'em (and maybe consider decorating your home with them?)!
DESTINY'S CHLID - "BOOTYLICIOUS"
KANYE WEST - "GOLD DIGGER"
Attention Beyhive: Queen Bey has released two new T-shirts in her store for you to cop! The tees feature emoji illustrations for both "Blow" and "Drunk in Love".
The "Blow" tee features cherries on the sleeves, in a nod to the ~adult~ themes that Beyonce references in the bridge. While the T-shirt for "Drunk in Love" has a tiny fully clothed emoji person surfing on the sleeves, cheekily rendering the act of "surfing" into a playful cartoon representation of yet another *achem* adult act.
It's only Tuesday, but Cara Delevingne is already having the best week of her life. In the last 24 hours, she flexed her acting skills in a new trailer for an upcoming British TV show, got matching tattoos with her BFF 4EVA Jourdan Dunn, and frolicked around in a trench coat in Burberry's latest campaign. (In the last 24 hours, I rewatched the entire season of Faking It and finished a large pizza by myself, so we're both pretty accomplished.)
But she just upped the ante by announcing a new capsule collection for DKNY. Yup, that's right: Cara Delevigne is tacking on a "slash fashion designer" to her already abundant resume, right after "model slash actress" and right before "professional human being slash worldwide eyebrow muse."

“Happy Pride” said the really attractive girl that I couldn’t actually carry on a conversation with because she was ~2 pretty 2 live~. I’m v. grateful to MTV Style for allowing me the opportunity to take pictures of hotties and cool kids without seeming like a creep.
Dyke Day LA is an all-day picnic that happens in Barnsdall Park right after Dyke March. Since 2008, they’ve been killin it, finally finding a way to mix the cray of Pride weekend with the calm of a family picnic. The general vibe is cool kids, hip families, hot ladies, and a handful of people who pass out flyers/take-out menus? I knew I was about to have the best time because my friend told me she goes every year, and she’s a lot cooler than me.

I had a blast, largely because the music was BANGIN'. I don’t need an excuse to dance to "Problem," but I appreciate being able to do so surrounded by all of the pretty lesbians. Also, everyone is dressed so cool and hip, and I made my friends ask people if I could take their picture.
An interesting fact about me—I can’t talk to hotties. AT ALL. Especially when the hotties are dressed well. At Dyke Day, I was intimidated even more than usual because not only was everyone attractive and cool, but they all seemed intelligent, funny, creative, and hard-working, which means wife material. YOU CAN’T JUST APPROACH YOUR FUTURE WIFE ALL NONCHALANT, YOU KNOW?!

In case you couldn't tell by the sweat dotting your forehead while you were waiting for the subway on an overcrowded platform that clocked in at 90 degrees, or the fact that the cold brew was sold out at your corner coffee place (Mondays, man), summer is here. Yeah, sure, fine, it doesn't officially arrive until June 21, but if the weather forecast and iced coffee demand is any indication, a new season has commenced and with it comes an unshakeable need for new clothes. Enter Lauren Conrad.
