It looks like Katy Perry is back in the brightly colored hair game again—hard. In April, Katy changed her dark locks to "slime green," but now she's back on that pink grind and, TBH, we couldn't be happier about it. I racked my encyclopedic knowledge of Katy's hair (fine, and the internet) to find the last time KP had pink hair and it was in 2011. Of course, a return to pink hair deserves a big debut and Katy landed Joe Biden to help her introduce her new look to the world.
Can we stop hair talk for one sec to talk about how tight Katy is with heavy-hitters in D.C.? First she offers to write Hillary Clinton a theme song and now this? I don't know what's going on there, but I like it. Now back to your regularly scheduled hair discourse.
It's been a hot minute since we had some Fashion Fanfic on da blog, and when we spotted Joe Jonas having a grand ol' time during Milan Fashion Week these past few days, we couldn't help wondering what notes he'd jot down in his fashion week diary. So, we thought we'd make it up ourselves. Inspired by the (very!) real three-piece NYFW installment he wrote last season, here's a fabricated version of what went down overseas with Front Row Joe (as we're affectionately calling him) at MFW.
DAY 1: JOHN VARVATOS

Hey. It's me, Joe. (IDK if I'm supposed to introduce myself to a diary, but I'm a gentleman, and it seems rude not to.) I flew into Italy last night and headed to the John Varvatos show first thing in the morning. Instead of my normal AM juice run (kale FTW, am I right?), I did a shot of espresso because I'm in Europe, and I'm #living. Even though it's not seasonally appropriate, I decided to play it safe in an all-black outfit because that's what NYFW taught me, and I do everything they say. In this photo, I'm trying to force a smile while thinking about all the #worldcup games I'm missing because of this. (U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!)

Zendaya and Beyonce aren't the only ones who've been channeling Aaliyah lately. The latest of these is FKA twigs, whose newly released video "Two Weeks" came out earlier today. (Outside of a Missy Elliott video, this has been the most consecutive shouts I've seen in the last decade.)
Steal Malia's style for yourself.
In case you somehow missed the news, let me be the first to break it to you: Teen Wolf is back, y'all! Our fave werewolves, banshee, kitsune, and regular ol' human (<3 Stiles <3) returned to us last night in a big way. There is also a werecoyote in the mix now—that's right, Malia (Shelley Hennig) from season three is officially part of the ~crew~.
The gang is down in Mexico and Malia—who, like, just became a human—is dressed the most appropriately for the weather in a long-sleeved shirt and American-flag-print shorts. What's that? You would love to know where those shorts are from, considering 4th of July is next week? We gotchu.
If you thought festival fashion had already peaked, think again! Katy Perry just extended the shelf life of the trend with her second collection for Claire’s, dubbed “Wildflower,” which will provide endless floral options for the Coachella set. Unlike “Roar,” her first collection for the store, “Wildflower” isn’t as much inspired by Katy’s songs as it is by the bohemian style that’s come to dominate music festivals—and she should know. By now, Katy’s pretty much a pro at Coachella, having attended for the past four years. Here we were thinking that she just went for the parties and music. Apparently, Katy was also doing some field research.
I’ve been crushing on Jenn Rogien for years. As the costume designer for HBO’s Girls and Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, it was love at first sight (of Lena Dunham in a mesh shirt, that is). And as a costume designer myself, I can’t help admiring someone who seems both effortlessly glamorous and hilariously down-to-earth—particularly since I know firsthand that the job is often more about waiting in line at dusty thrift stores than wearing designer shoes to red carpet events. So when I was presented with the opportunity to chat with her about the second season of OITNB (just released on Netflix), I jumped at it.
Spoiler alert: Jenn Rogien is awesome. About halfway through the interview, I started fangirling, garbling my words, and blurted, “I’m sorry, I’m just really nervous right now.” She made a joke about it, laughed, and then apologized for the periodic squawking noises from her phone—as she was standing in a Burlington Coat Factory mid-interview, shopping for season three, being interrupted by store loudspeaker announcements asking for additional cashiers to come to the register.
She has one of the coolest jobs on the planet and a terrific sense of humor about an awkward moment. Crush complete. Let’s meet Jenn Rogien.
That's ~Professor~ West to you.
What comes to mind when you think about community service? Volunteering at a homeless shelter? Putting in time at a food pantry? Collecting trash on the side of a highway? According to TMZ, Kanye West has been knocking out his court-ordered service hours by...teaching a fashion class at a local Los Angeles college (continuing to prove that he's not like you and me).

Peplum ain't anything new (its first appearance actually dates back to 500 B.C.), but this summer, we're resurfacing the hourglass-enhancing silhouette and taking it down a notch—literally. Right now, it's all about adding a little peplum to the bottom of our skirts and dresses, which transforms the ol' drop waist into an incredibly dramatic look. You can blame Balmain for officially making this a thing (their Spring/Summer 2014 collection was jam-packed with gorgeous, fluted goodness!), so we thought it was time for us regular folk to give it a go. Are y'all ready?
I think new 1D makeup is coming?

One Direction has a ton of products attached to their name. There are shoes, eyeglasses, multiple fragrances, and even a makeup collection, because if you put those cute li'l faces on something, Directioners (myself included, natch) will snatch it up. Well, it looks like Directioners have a fellow fan of One Direction-endorsed products in Mr. Niall Horan.
The band's lone Irishman shared a picture of his hands with numerous color swatches across them–he even has on multiple nail polishes. I guess we can assume 1D is getting a second makeup line because, according to Niall, the band had a meeting about makeup and it's "that good I'm gon[n]a start wearing it myself." Well, Niall, that will be a new look for you, but I'm not opposed—some of the shadows you're showing off would really complement your eyes.
The 2014 World Cup isn't even into the knockout rounds yet and it's already gifted us with a whole bevy of things to talk about: crazy hairstyles, Rihanna's fandom, and all of the stylish gear it has inspired. Now designer soccer balls can be added to that list. Pharrell, Rick Owens, Roberto Cavalli, Missoni, and more put their individual spins (LOL, get it?) on the 2014 Adidas World Cup soccer ball for the Gol de Letra Foundation, an organization that benefits Brazilian youth.
