Anyone else getting SUPER antsy for Fourth of July? Between the stockpile of American flag swag you've amassed in preparation and the patriotic paint jobs you've been testing on your tips (not to mention the fact that you've had your star-spangled playlist stuck on repeat all week), YOU. ARE. READY. Unfortunately, we all have to wait another day, but we might have something to help tide you over (and keep you and your jean cut-offs from losing your starred and striped minds): a preview of Selena Gomez and Mariah Carey's performance outfits for Macy's "Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular" on NBC.

Remember how we deduced from Tina Knowles' interview with Grazia Daily that Beyonce's wardrobe for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour might be constantly subject to change? Welp, Miss Tina did not steer us wrong. The second leg of King Bey's international tour just hit stateside in sunny Los Angeles this weekend, and just as we had anticipated, there were a few sartorial surprises. Tried and true costumes got updates (peep the extra embellishment on the bridal bodysuit!) and Bey bestowed unto her backup dancers some new looks, too!
As far as festivals go, Glastonbury is one seriously epic musical trip. This four-day event truly stands in a league of its own, from the massive grounds (the fence stretches eight miles) to the notoriously dreary weather (Hunter boots as a fashion statement, y'all!) to the widely international lineup. And as much as we wish we could witness all 2,000 acts in person, even those of us not lucky enough to put their passports to use this weekend can still get filled in....well, fashion-wise, at least. Several of our favorite style stars hit the stages decked out in some majorly diverse looks. Whether it's Azealia Banks channeling a dino in a spikey bodysuit to the Haim sisters doing signature California cool, check out our top stylish performers below and try not to feel too much FOMO. It's the next best thing to purchasing a plane ticket to England, we promise.
Solange at Glastonbury.
Our girl Solange made her Glastonbury debut in a MAJOR way, dressed in a geometric print suit by Teatum Jones and Sophia Webster pumps. We already know that this lady looooves a good print, and she definitely didn't disappoint. Throw in some swingy braids, pink lips, and tons of attitude, and, welp, you've got yourself a killer performance outfit.

If there's one person that took over tonight's BET Awards, it definitely had to be Ms. Nicki Minaj. Sure, she might've skipped the red carpet, but she managed to switch up her ensemble three (!!!) times during the show. Her first outfit was a decked OUT bustier complete with rhinestones, zipper detailing and a garter belt. She paired this strapless top with simple black skinnies, pointy silver pumps, and bright red stiletto nails. She managed to keep the same, sleek platinum bob throughout each outfit change, which we LOVE.

OK, y'all can just get down on your knees and bow down right now—Mariah Carey straight-up KILLED. IT. at tonight's BET Awards. We were a little skeptical when we didn't spot her on the red carpet, but she made up for it tenfold when she appeared onstage in a head-to-toe sparkling silver ensemble. She wore a short, white strapless frock with a fishnet sheath covered with intricate brocade detailing. She accessorized with stacked diamond bracelets, INSANE diamond earrings, pointy silver pumps, and, yes, even a bedazzled microphone. #DIVASTATUS

Watch out One Direction. There just might be another band of boys after your Kings of Coordination™ crown (OK, in our dreams)! Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake, and Charlie Wilson all sported black bow ties on stage for their joint performance (in honor of Wilson). They may not have gone for the patented 1D same-color steez, but the dedication to tailoring by these dudes is impressive (one of these guys does have a song called "Suit & Tie" after all).

For those of you who may have missed it, let me catch you up. Tonight, courtesy of the 2013 BET Awards, we were privileged to watch a mind boggling R.Kelly medley performance. It kicked off with an unexpected chorus, breaking the fourth wall and filing in the aisles singing back-and-forth across the attendees, but it was Kelz himself that really took the performance into overdrive. Without actually settling on one record, Robert moved effortlessly between songs, hit after hit after hit. What's sticking with me, though, is that bananas all-over gold spike stud ensemble. And how much it reminds me of Bowser. You know, from Super Mario Bros.

Demi Lovato is getting in the patriotic spirit, y'all! Today she released a behind-the-scenes video for her Made in the USA music video and performed the single on Good Morning America. Oddly enough, she wore almost the same outfit in both instances. She ditched her typically edgy, all-black ensembles for a blonde-haired, all-American look, and we can barely handle it! I mean, this is such a far cry from her fierce Heart Attack music video ensembles, which involved a serious smoky eye and tons of metal hardware. Today's performance outfit consisted of layered white dress with a distressed denim vest, brown belt, layered necklaces, tons of turquoise hand jewelry and—the kicker—cowboy boots!
The 5 outfits Miley Cyrus has worn in the past 24 hours.

Miley Cyrus can't stop. Changing her clothes, that is. Just in case you haven't been keeping a vigilant eye on the platinum pixied pop star's sartorial exploits, she's worn (so far) five different outfits in the past 24 hours. FIVE. And that's only counting what she's actually stepped out of doors wearing. If Miley's anything like us when we get ready, we'd probably have to multiply by ten to account for the outfits that were tried but ultimately ended up on the dressing room floor. How does someone manage to wear this many looks in such a short amount of time? We'll unpack it for you.

If there's one party we wish we were invited to this summer, it'd HAVE to be last night's DKNY Artworks event in London. Top models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn brought their fashion A-game to the '90s-themed shindig, and there were even performances from two of our FAVES, Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea (#jeals!), who switched ensembles throughout the night. When Rita arrived, she wore a sporty-yet-girly black and blue colorblocked frock with mesh detailing and a tulle skirt. She accessorized with super strappy knee-high boots, stacked bracelets, and a crimson pout. Me-ow! Iggy sported a comfy tea-length black and red DKNY logo dress with pointy booties, gorge platinum waves and a retro red lip. Cara hosted the event in a skin-tight jumpsuit (girl loves her onesies!), a metallic varsity jacket, layered gold chains, and the same patent booties. Jourdan stunned in a cropped Dimepiece jersey with leather skinnies, holographic heels (so on trend) and a bold red lip.
