Miley Cyrus for "V" Magazine.

We may STILL be reeling off of Miley Cyrus' TWO ELLE UK covers, but the platinum pixie-headed girl isn't stopping there on her quest to plaster her mug all over your newsstands. Hot on the heels of the ELLE UK release, V Magazine has revealed Billy Ray's little girl as their Summer 2013 cover girl. Not once, not even twice, but THREE. TIMES. *wipes sweat from upper lip* PHEW!
Unless you live in a vacuum bubble that seals off contact to all things nostalgic and AWESOME, you've probably heard that TLC IS REUNITING. And not only that, reportedly, T-Boz and Chilli are linking back up with the late great Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes via digital projections of precious archival performance footage (no Tupac hologram, guys) for a full-fledged reunion TOUR. One of the most iconic and prolific girl groups of the '90s will reassemble this July at VH1's Mixtape Festival, and we CAN'T. WAIT. In fact, we're so on the edge of our seats about this that we're already picking out what outfits we'll wear to the show—inspired by the ladies themselves, of course. Check 'em out below, and no, they don't include this No Scrubs tee or this votive candle. We don't remove those from the shrine.
A TLC reunion tour is a definite cause to go a little "crazy."

This is not to say that overalls are "crazy." On quite the contrary, we LOVE THEM. But pairing these acid wash overalls ($155.00) with a banana print crop top ($37.41), printed multi-color sneaker wedges ($88.00), and tying a seriously VIBRANT orange layering crewneck ($36.11) around your waist? That veers you right into crazytown. (No, erm, not that Crazy Town.) Top it all off with a pair of oil slick lensed Jeepers Peepers ($29.93), two raver pigtail buns, and maybe a condom or three attached to your ensemble, and you're "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"-extra ready!
Rita Ora wore a UNIF clear jacket at Coachella.

We're not the only ones feeling the spring fever vibes around here, you guys. Leave it to Rita Ora to get a major head start on some KEY warm weather trends this month, from rocking that old-meets-new version of the gladiator boot to strutting her stuff in a basketball jersey dress. Now the pop star's bringing yet another unexpected piece smack dab onto everyone's radar: the clear jacket. We spotted the singer traipsing around the Coachella festival grounds several weeks ago, repping her trademark tomboy style (and uh, showing off her rock hard abs) in a graphic Carven skirt, fresh white Supergas, a HUF hat, and, the piece de resistance, her see-through moto jacket. Remember when Lady Gaga hopped on the transparent clothing fad early in her plastic frock at the 2010 EMA?! Well, Rita's version definitely a more wearable option for everyone who isn't brave enough to wear nipple stickers IRL. In other words, most of us...?

The more affordable tickets for the North American leg of Beyonce's The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour are long gone, but, and maybe this is a totally off-base suggestion, there are actually a few VIP packages still available. If you're anything like me, you probably COMPLETELY ruled out those tickets, and understandably so. I mean, several hundred bucks is no small price to pay for one night, even if it's with Beyonce. Plus, it's a lot harder to get a group of friends together when everyone is paying sooooo much. It's a situation that seems so out-of-the-question that you probably didn't even open up those VIP package descriptions (even with their fun names like "Upgrade U" and "We Like To Party"). Welp, we did. And what we found was surprising.
Haim on the June cover of ASOS magazine.

It's no secret that we love the sisters Haim around here. We've just about worn away the play button on all of our various devices hitting repeat on their 2012 single "Don't Save Me," and we MAY have even sung it in karaoke more than once. Maybe. Beyond just crafting one undeniable hit after another and putting on one of the best live shows we've seen in AWHILE, the sisters also have great style, both as a group and individually. We've chatted with them (and their music video stylists) about it in the past, and we're overjoyed to see it captured so well on the June cover of ASOS magazine. The girls are each wearing looks that reflect their style, with Alana, a.k.a. BabyHaim, wearing an ASOS crop top emblazoned with the year '1990,' middle sister—and resident tomboy—Danielle in an Ashish sequined numbers oversized shirt dress, and eldest sis Este in an ASOS crop top and Antipodium metallic skirt. The shoot is sunny and fun and the photos look as though they could almost be candids from the sisters' own lives in their native LA.

Chemistry is a real thing, and it can make ALL the difference in a photo spread. The Haim sisters are obviously super comfortable with one another, not just from playing in a band together but from, you know, growing up in the same house for their entire lives, and the ease and humor with which they interact is undeniable. On the cover, Este gleefully makes a mustache with Danielle's long brown hair, and the interior shots are no less playful. The girls manage to make a chain link fence look as exciting as a rollercoaster ride in shiny jeans and a T-shirt for Danielle, a psychedelic, Tumblr-meets-canyon-lady maxi dress for Este, and, of course, Alana's signature jean shorts and a graphic long-sleeved shirt. Are you taking notes? We certainly have been. The mag is available now on the ASOS Fashion Up app, available from the app store.

Katy Perry at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and at the Lincoln Memorial over the weekend.

If you want a guidebook for how to do spring dressing right, look no further than Katy Perry. The singer has transitional dressing down pat, and her recent weekend in Washington for the White House Correspondents' Dinner is a perfect example. For the big night, Katy wore a luminescent green Giambattista Valli gown with natural, branch-like detailing at the waist. The color reminded us a lot of Katy's mint green Gucci Grammys dress, and has us wondering if we're going to be seeing the singer in more leafy hues as the warmer months progress. The strapless gown looks almost to be made of acetate, with the green giving way to brown in places, lending the whole look a very fairy-like vibe. In keeping with the natural tone, Katy wore her makeup neutral, with a pink lip and subtly-lined eye taking no shine away from the dress. Her hair was also loose and natural, pushed to the side in thick curls.
Miley Cyrus covers June 'ELLE' UK.

It's official: the fashion world is infected with Miley Cyrus fever, and by the looks of it, this condition is highly contagious. But wait a second, that's a good thing! The singer is everywhere these days, whether she's twerking it in a unicorn onesie or glamming it up in...another onesie? Well, OK. *shrugs* Regardless of what she's wearing or who she's collab-ing with, we all know that Miley's got it (whatever "it" is). And now she's ushering in her highly anticipated new sound, new look, and new 'tude with yet another magazine cover! This time she's showing her style stuff for ELLE UK, trading her signature jumpers for a slick silk vest (unbuttoned to the stomach, natch) by Lanvin and a gold pendant by Saint Laurent. These straight-from-the-runway wares come topped off with a purple smoky eye, her trademark tats, and a sultry "come hither" swagger...if THIS cover doesn't send tons of panting fans to the newsstands, like, now, then sorry, we don't know what will.
Selena Gomez in New York City.
From her clear accessories to subtle belly-baring pieces, there's absolutely no question that Selena Gomez has a real knack for whipping out ensembles we'd gladly steal for our own closets. But although Sel looking cute is nothing new, it's rarer when an outfit singlehandedly causes SUCH a stir that we stop whatever we're doing immediately to steal it for ourselves. Seriously, though! As soon as we spotted the actress and singer at Elvis Duran's radio show yesterday in New York dressed in all-over floral print, we knew we HAD to track this little number down. Luckily the communal search party didn't take too long, since her silk pajama-inspired pants, "Get It Girl" graphic tee, and white strappy heels are all from the same place: 3.1 Phillip Lim.
Is it hot in here...or is it just Beyonce's SMOKING NEW H&M VIDEO?! Duh, it's definitely the latter. The clip for "Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M" officially landed this morning, and you guys, trust us when we say the superstar is taking island dreaming to an epic new level. Filmed earlier this year in the Bahamas (remember when the campaign was just a whispery rumor?), the vid stars Bey posing sultrily amidst the tropical palm trees and clear blue skies dressed in H&M's new swimwear line. Shot by Jonas Åkerlund, we hear the concept is to represent the four natural elements— fire, water, wind, and earth— in a seriously fashionable way.
Frank Ocean, Miguel, and Justin Timberlake at the Time 100 celebration.
This year's Time 100 list of the most influential people of the year felt a little bit like it was made with input from our very own brains. Some of our favorite musicians, politicians, and thinkers were honored, and they turned out in their very best at Time's celebration last night. In particular, some VERY well-dressed gentlemen stood out. Frank Ocean left his usual sneakers at home in exchange for a totally traditional tuxedo and *gasp* dress shoes. Can you believe it? We're into it. Meanwhile, Miguel went in the opposite direction, bringing a splash of bright blue to the otherwise pretty classic red carpet in black pants and a graphic, mirror print button-down. He accessorized the springtime look with black chelsea boots and assorted rings. Back on his suit and tie...well, you know, Justin Timberlake took Frank's lead in a classic tux with a crosshatch patterned jacket that we would be willing to bet is by his friend Tom Ford. Justin looked positively rakish with his hair parted to the side and falling in front of his face just a little bit. Handsome gentlemen, all. *Sigh*
