Hannah Hooper stands out. As the spunky, sole chick in a band full of dudes, you can't help but be drawn to her ever-changing on-stage style (and her ever-changing, ombre extensions *swoon*). One day, you might catch Grouplove's leading lady rocking around in a skeleton leotard onesie—and the next day, she's slowly swaying with a tambourine in a vintage, floor-length, multi-layered grape chiffon dress, like she did for the band's recent show at the McKittrick Hotel in NYC. (SO Stevie Nicks.) #impressed
But somehow, she manages to pull it all off. Actually, she more than pulls it off. She NAILS IT. Every. Single. Time. *bows down* Seriously, the girl wears leopard-print spandex better than Peggy Bundy. *SCURRT* I went there. IDK how she does it, but we at least had to try to steal some of her style secrets—so we did what any curious fan would do. We asked her to show us what's in her suitcase! (Or, like, the next best thing, which equates to a bunch of personal pics of her favorite on-tour outfits. Because folding/re-folding a packed suitcase = giant pain-in-butt.) Check out nine of Hannah's favorite performance get-ups below!

Katy Perry and co. get ready for Le Grand Journal.

As you may have noticed, Katy Perry’s been in Paris this week getting the VIP treatment at Fashion Week and just generally looking lovely. But it appears she’s there for play AND work, as Perry recently tweeted that tonight she’ll be appearing on Le Grand Journal, a French nightly news and talk show. (And by the looks of the rehearsal photo, there's gonna be a performance and it's gonna be RULL colorful.) But wait, there's more! We also got to peep a pre-show pic of the singer and her crew wearing like, every possible type of garment that’s ever been made in Kenzo’s flying tiger print. Seriously though.
If you live on this planet ("Hi! I'm Earth. Have we met?"), there's a chance you may have heard by now that Miley: The Movement, airs tonight. *SQUEAL* It's basically gonna be like Christmas, but with more twerking, less wreaths and like, a TON of tongue. ICYMI, Miley Cyrus, Queen of Can't Stop/Won't Stop, has had a pretty may-jah year, so we thought it only fitting to pay tribute to the artist-formerly-known-as Hannah Montana with the sincerest form of flattery: Halloween costumes, DUH. Oh. What? You thought all the foam fingers would be sold-out by now? YOU THOUGHT WRONG. (Go. Buy. Now.) And BTW, you won't find any pre-packaged costumes here. NEWP. *hair flip* We decided to get RULL creative to help you put together your favorite Miley moment: from that VMAs performance to one of the first times we saw her twerk (in a unicorn onesie, no less) and even alllll the way back to the vintage Miley days of The Disney Channel—we are hookin' you up with some super-sweet outfits that will a.) provoke jealousy b.) get people talking and c.) prahhhbably rile up the Parents Television Council. So, you're welcome.
MILEY CYRUS' NUDE VMAS PERFORMANCE OUTFIT
Be Miley from this year's VMAs!

You've seen it, you know it, you love it and you totes don't get what all the fuss was about. When Miley ripped off her fuzzy-wuzzy wuz a leotard on stage at the 2013 VMAs, gasps echoed through the crowd. It was awesome. Cyrus rocked a nude, latex two-piece and white platform sneakers for the second part of her performance, and chose to accessorize the look with a simple, now-infamous foam finger. But don't stress! We get it—not everyone has the cajones to be quite as ~bold~ as Miley, so we tried to achieve her VMAs look with a little more, um, coverage. The mesh panel on this pale-colored bodysuit gives the illusion of belly-bearing, without having to worry about like, doing crunches and stuff.The matching gym shorts allow you to go about your trick-or-treating without showing everyone your booty and the bright red lipstick will make sure that your words stand out in a crowd. (As if the foam finger won't do that already.)
+ Bodysuit: American Apparel Play Mesh Sunsuit ($48.00)
+ Shorts: American Apparel High-Waist Denim Short ($24.00)
+ Lipstick: Covergirl Continuous Lip Color in Really Red ($4.99)
+ Foam Finger: Old Glory Miley Cyrus Twerk Foam Finger ($9.95)
+ Shoes: Nasty Gal ZOMG Platform Sneaker ($65.00)
You know those days when you tear out everything in your closet, only to end up wearing the very first thing you tried on? Well, if you’re Beyonce, you get to do that with your hair. #JEALLY Not that we blame her, of course. I mean, the woman has essentially dedicated multiple dance moves to the art of dramatic hair-whipping, so it makes total sense that she’d want to bring back the length. Also, she can do whatever she wants because she is the KING/KWEEN and we would bow down on bended knee regardless of her ‘do. (But TBH, her head rolls just would not be the same with a pixie, AMIRITE? Althooough, she would be a lot less likely to get her curls stuck in a fan. Just sayin’. #SAFETYFIRST)
Iggy Azalea performs at Philipp Plein's Milan Fashion Week 2014 show.

Fashion Week has turned into Fashion Three Weeks for Iggy Azalea. After sitting front row at a number of New York Fashion Week shows and performing at DKNY's 25th Anniversary Party, Iggy has surfaced in Milan and, oh, on Philipp Plein's runway. Plein's website describes Iggy as the ideal woman, "poised between haute couture tailoring and a mood that is unashamedly hip hop," so it only makes sense that she kicked-off the show with a live performance of "Work," wearing a short, structured, and slit-bearing dress. Iggy ditched her recently debuted pin-up style bangs for a sleek and tight bun and kept her makeup au naturel.
Drake wearing Jaden Smith's face to perform at the 2013 iHeart Music Radio Festival.

While Miley Cyrus went white and sheer for her performance at iHeart Radio Music Festival this weekend, Drake took his performance wardrobe in the opposite direction. Drizzy took the stage in a long-sleeve black OVO t-shirt that was emblazoned with a graphic version of Jaden Smith's face. Normally, it may seem strange to find a grown man wearing a teenager's face on his shirt, but this shirt and Jaden's face have a backstory.
Guess who's back. Back again. Jarvis Derrell of #shehashadit is back, and Hunty, your friends already know. This Kween does NOT arrive silently! That's right, folks. We've teamed up with our old friend to break down who was REALLY reigning and serving at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards. YASS!

OBSESSED!!! #girls #guuuurrrrlllls #liveyolifedena #imeanlena #serve #shehashadit #canalstreetdressshop #hottopicpromwear #realness #extrapointsforthateyeshawdow #clutchdayclutch #livingforyou
Miley Cyrus performing at iHeart Radio Music Festival.

Happy Monday: here are some pictures from my weekend I want to share with you. JUST KIDDING, these are pictures of Miley Cyrus performing at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas this weekend. Well, Miley has certainly turned up the heat on her performance wardrobe, and it seems, IT'S GOTTEN SO HOT SHE'S HAD TO REMOVE ALL HER CLOTHES. Her first outfit (on the right) was similar to the one she wears in the "Wrecking Ball" video, as well in the trailer for the Miley: The Movement—the girl loves a white crop top with white bottoms like none other. Unlike her other crop tops, which existed on their own, this white lace-up bustier is tied to her white scalloped shorts. It's a lace-up romper and is probably the most annoying piece of clothing in the world to take off.

Didn’t you just wanna pluck Carrie Underwood right off the vine when she waltzed onto the 2013 Emmys red carpet? Or better yet, lean back on a red velvet chaise lounge in a silk robe and have her fed to you by sturdy men with fans in Greek togas? Are these grape jokes getting weird yet? Maybe we’re just hungry. The American Idol alumna looked ripe for the pickin’ in her amethyst-colored Romona Keveza ball gown, which she paired with a simple black sash and a Y-drop diamond necklace. The Oklahoma-native definitely knows how to bring the deb ball to the step-and-repeat, y'all.
Taylor Swift performing in Nashville.
Do we sense a trend? Last night, Taylor Swift wore a bejeweled Grand Ole Opry t-shirt to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. How meta of ya, Swifty. The shirt is currently on sale in the Opry's gift shop, so maybe Taylor spilled something on one of her striped performance shirts and needed a quick replacement? While a perfectly plausible scenario, it seems unlikely because A) Taylor Swift probably has never stained anything, and B) SHE'S WORN LOCATION-APPROPRIATE SHIRTS BEFORE. It should also be pointed out the shirt for sale is not bedazzled, which means this was a pre-meditated buy. +1 for the theory that Taylor never spills anything.
