How does she do it?
Wow. Is it just me or was last night's Teen Wolf, like, extremely frightening? Granted, I don't rush out to see scary movies because I, uh, don't enjoy feeling scared, but since I watch Teen Wolf for
the shirtless locker room scenes my job, I endured the entire thing. Amid all the blood and razor-sharp teeth was something light and something patterned—I'm talking, of course, about Lydia's outfit.
Last Sunday, when Beyonce and Jay Z tele-performed for the BET Awards from their On the Run Tour, it was a struggle to make out the details of Bey's high-shine splashy one-piece. Well, Queen B must have read our minds because she posted a snapshot of the moment along with a sketch of the design on her website. As it turns out, the bodysuit was created by Michael Costello, and the BET Awards was a pretty appropriate debut for it since Bey first put Costello's name on the nation's radar when she showed up to another awards show in one of his dresses–the Grammys.
But the most exciting part about seeing the garment up close on our computer screens was discovering that Bey has now added the stories behind each outfit next to their sketch on her site. Clearly she knows what the Beyhive wants. Interestingly, the sequined and spray-painted Michael Costello look alone took "three days committed to a fabric search and nine hours of non-stop solo work by Costello."
That's nothing, though, compared to the other On the Run look Costello designed. Like, at all.
Crazy in love, y'all.

When we first saw the spectacular lineup for Beyonce and Jay Z's On the Run wardrobe, we just had one question: Where's the Givenchy? Thankfully, it only took 12 hours for fashion house head Riccardo Tisci to answer that question with a few Instagrams. The couple's BFF and frequent collaborator—see also: Watch the Throne artwork, and Beyonce's tour wardrobe and Met Gala dresses from the past couple of years—is responsible for at least two creations on this tour.
Crazy in love, y'all.

The black and white American flag dress Beyonce wears is one of Tisci's designs. TBH, I never considered the possibility that our country's flag could make for such a stunning bustle but leave it to Bey and T. to pull off the seemingly impossible. But also, Beyonce can literally make wallpaper look good.
Flowers + metallics = #cyberhippies.

For a while there it felt like Miley Cyrus was debuting new outfits at every performance. There were the seven new ones when she took the Bangerz Tour to Europe, and even after that, there was a custom Kenzo leotard, tinsel, and new add-ons like face paint. It seemed like Miles slowed her roll, but over the weekend, she broke out a new metallic outfit laced with neon flowers for the Capital Summertime Ball in London.
It's definitely worth noting that she ALSO resurrected a trend I hoped I'd never see again—moon boots. I will admit, though, they look much cuter with floral appliqués. While Miley wore full-coverage pieces, her backup dancers wore disco ball-esque mirrored pasties and jorts. If you're wondering what to call this look, Miley appears to have given it a name via Instagram: #cyberhippies.
Karma, Liam, and Amy on 'Faking It.'
While on last week's Faking It we noticed some unintentional denim matching going on between Amy and Karma, last night's episode was full of purposeful khaki coordination.
If you can cast your mind back to last week's episode, you may recall that it closed with Karma offering Liam a, um, proposition. In order to feel comfortable with their decision, Amy and Karma decide they need to dress the part.

The perfect threesome wardrobe, of course, is a khaki trench coat. Amy opts for one with black piping while Karma goes more classic with a double-breasted version. Shout-out to Amy's meteorologist mom, BTW, who has many trench coats—this big reveal wouldn't have been possible without you.

Just when we were getting used to all the new pieces in Miley Cyrus' Bangerz Tour wardrobe, she goes and adds a new look. Miley posted photos on Instagram (while on stage, natch) wearing a monochrome eye print. We immediately recognized the print as Kenzo—though the eyes on Miley's pieces have much lusher lashes than those on the Fall 2013 collection—but we couldn't figure out from the picture what the eyes were printed on. And then it hit us: They're custom.

Since her post-twerking rise, Miley Cyrus has become the queen of unexpected outfit changes. Just on her Bangerz Tour alone, Milez is working with some massive suitcases containing outfits from nearly a dozen different designers. And she just added more for the European leg. But as far as her makeup goes, that’s been the one consistent piece of her look—until last night.
Over the past few days, Miley has been Instagramming her new bedazzled “dirty hippie” face-paint look with hot pink stripes and rhinestones. At first we thought it was just a celebratory look for her mom's birthday, like the seemingly endless supply of hats and masks she has with her on tour, but last night Miley performed wearing her new makeup. If Miley were at Coachella, she’d blend right in. But considering the festival is a month behind us, we’re guessing another influence is at work here.
While last week on Faking It we were obsessed with Amy's jeans, suspenders, and fisherman sweater, this week we turn our attention to Karma. Even if you didn't know her name—or that her parents operate a juice truck—you would totally be able to tell that she was raised by hippies. While Amy's style is a bit more casual and masculine, Karma's is flowy and feminine. Last night's outfit is the epitome of her overall aesthetic, IMHO.
Katie Stevens as Karma on 'Faking It.'
Karma has a knack for mixing colors and textures together. She's wearing a distressed denim jacket, a cotton dress, a leather belt, and a woven tote. Between where her belt is cinched and where her jacket falls, she's got her proportions on point.
We've been anticipating Katy Perry's Prismatic World Tour since November. Half a year, you guys. Last night, it finally kicked off in Belfast, and it looks incredible. Where else are you going to see five humans dressed as cats on one stage? Cats isn't on Broadway anymore, sorry. While we thought we had a good idea of what to expect from all the previews Katy has been sharing throughout the past week and a half, seeing what the sketches actually look like IRL is an entirely different story. Oh, also, there were a few looks we didn't know were coming.

One of the few outfits we weren't expecting was this "Roar"-inspired ~lewk~. While in the video, Katy fashioned a regal wardrobe from things she found in the jungle. This outfit features plastic leaves and neon thigh-highs, two things you cannot find in the wilderness.
Rita Volk as Amy on 'Faking It.'
Last week when we spoke to Faking It's costume designer Mandi Lane, she gave us a ~tip~ to keep an eye out for the cream sweater that Amy wears in the show's third episode. That episode was last night and—OMG—what a sweater—nay, outfit it was. The essential elements are an Irish fisherman sweater, a pair of loose and distressed jeans, and—the clincher—suspenders. Even though it's almost warm in New York, I'm desperate to cop this look and wear it immediately. It is 100%, as Mandi described it, "effortlessly cool."
