Rihanna loves the World Cup so much.

Considering how into the World Cup she's been throughout the past month, it's not a surprise that Rihanna watched the final game IRL in Rio de Janeiro. Also not surprising? After the game, she hung out with the victors. If Rihanna wants to hang out and take selfies with the World Cup, that's what happens, OK?

To the untrained eye, it may seem like Rih wore her new piercing, fave bucket hat, and a regular ol' black shirt to hang with the German team. The shirt, of course, is not regular, nor is it old old—it's Trapstar, has a very World Cup-appropriate name, and can be yours for $50.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsberg is five feet and one inch of all-around toughness. She’s been one of our favorite women for quite some time. What’s not to love about the icon who has fought for women’s rights for nearly 60 years and has no intention of stepping down from the bench at the spry age of 81? And while some wines and cheeses may mellow with age, not so for our Ruth. Her dissent in last week’s Hobby Lobby case was 35 pages of fine legal writing blended with a healthy helping of controlled rage.

The internet, in all its bountiful, weird glory, has turned the tiny living legend into a meme, a song, nail art, and of course, an amazing Tumblr… plus plenty of stylish ways to show your love for, yes, the Notorious R.B.G.

The ORIGINAL

NYU Law Student Shanna Knizhnik started the Notorious R.G.B Tumblr nearly one year ago, and it’s still as amazing and hilarious as ever. Get down with R.B.G. and purchase this tee—there’s a direct link from Knizhnik’s Tumblr page, and I love the idea of the T-shirt proceeds supporting the busy law student/meme creator.

He's back.

The decision is in. LeBron James is headed BACK to the Cleveland Cavaliers. I'll be honest, I personally am not a LeBron fan (*winces, ducks for cover*), but for the days between announcing he would opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat and play the field as a free agent, I couldn't help feeling I was being held emotionally hostage by the impending move. Was it all a power move to renegotiate with the Heat? Would he hop to yet another team? Was there actually a chance that he could sign with—*GASP*—my Lakers??? Every scenario seemed up for grabs. But the only one that felt "right"—in what felt like everyone's eyes, not just James'—was a grand homecoming to Ohio.

Think I can train the stray cats on my block to do this?
Photos: Kamine Zoo

In a move that seems lifted from a Zoolander subplot, a Japanese zoo is letting its animals distress jeans. The lions, tigers, and bears (oh my) at Kamine Zoo are introduced to rolls of denim wrapped around their favorite toys, tires and and rubber balls, which they then maul, because, y'know, they're animals. The distressed material is then turned into jeans by Japanese designers.

Ain't it the truth.
Photo: Nasty Gal

I'm sure you've heard the news by now. Ryan Gosling is rumored to be having a baby with Eva Mendes. Also rumored to be true: my inability to love ever again. For those of you who are coming to terms with the debilitating news, I'm here you for you. And in the spirit of solidarity, I've found a couple of items to ease the grieving process as you walk along your very own boulevard of broken dreams.

Depending on your level of acceptance, there are two ways of approaching this devastating devlopment. There's the mature path of calm acceptance. Sure, Ryan Gosling isn't with you and you're dealing with a wellspring of emotions, but you're sophisticated enough to know that this is your life now. However, that doesn't mean you've entirely recovered. You'd still like to be handled with kid gloves until you're fully healed. Thankfully, Nasty Gal is on it.

Alexander Wang H&M

Alexander Wang and H&M have been teasin' the heck out of us lately, and we like it. Well, kind of. It all started three months ago when A. Wang announced via Instagram that he would be collaborating with H&M on a clothing and accessories collection come fall (November 6, to be exact!). While simultaneous screams were heard 'round the world, things have been pretty hush-hush since the initial announcement. Until, well, right now.

Taylor Swift

This may be the most perfect summer outfit?

Like us, Taylor Swift spent Fourth of July weekend chilling with her friends and baking a bunch of pies (unlike us, her friends are Emma Stone, Lena Dunham, Jaime King, and Jessica Szohr and her pie was perfect). Also unlike us? She was photographed looking remarkably fresh-faced without any awkward sunburns or undereye circles from too much fun and not enough sleep like the rest of America.

After her long-weekend getaway in Rhode Island, Taylor was spotted leaving a New York City gym wearing a flawless retro bustier number from Reformation. How she manages to look like that after ostensibly getting her fitness on is a bit of a mystery, but whatever she's doing in there is working because: abs. In the mood for good news? You can cop the same matching set for yourself—whether you wear it to the gym or to more formal occasions is totally up to you.

Whether it's Rita Ora's plastic tattoo necklace or Elle Fanning's stacked diamond and pearl strands, there's no doubting that chokers are back in a very big way. The '90s staple even made an appearance in Lanvin, Miu Miu, Carven, and Alexander McQueen's Spring/Summer 2014 collections, which means, yes, this trend is really happening (and isn't going anywhere soon!). But if you're still side-eyeing the resurgence of jewelry you wore in middle school, we found some awesome options no matter your style or budget. Seriously! Check 'em out below.

Emojis

Emoji explosion.
Photo: Shop Jeen/O-Mighty/Nasty Gal/Etsy/Beloved

Last week, emoj.li, the first emoji-only network, launched. Emoji enthusiasts like myself scrambled to claim usernames that, of course, were composed of the tiny pictures. In order to celebrate the launch, we've rounded up some of our fave emoji merch from around the 'net. Wear it all at once or separately, it's totally up to you–may we suggest, however, that you wear it when you use emoj.li? So #META.

Of all the pink-shirt girl emojis in the world (slash on my phone), this is my most used, probably because she DGAF. A shirt featuring multiple ~nonchalant~ ladies is perfect for the summer and letting everyone know your default answer to any and all inquiries, propositions, requests, etc. The best part? It's on sale.

Fourth of July

Happy Birthday, America!

Happy July 3, everyone! If you're anything like me, Fourth of July really came outta nowhere this year, right? Like, tomorrow is the day with all the BBQs and fireworks? I feel like I was just sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Anyway, whether or not you forgot tomorrow is a national holiday, you still have time to swag yourself out with the American flag. You can even do so from head to toe, if you're so inclined. We traveled high and low (on the interwebz) to find the most patriotic gear out there that is available in stores all across the country.

Let's get started—the big day is quickly approaching!

Fourth of July

You can begin your flagfit (flag + outfit) on your head with this hat from Forever 21. It is currently on sale for $5, but the color is appropriately faded so it looks vintage and will appear like you've long been celebrating the U.S.A.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
