Katy, Miley and Nicki rock Chanel chain belts.

Most people buy belts to help hold up their pants up or cinch their waist in an over-sized outfit. Celebrities, however, are not most people. Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna (see below) have all recently been spotted wearing Chanel chain belts that definitely serve the purpose of #FASHUN over function. I mean, the way these dangling designer links are typically worn—slung low, multi-layered and/or over already snug garments—these “belts” are actually a lot closer to like, really expensive necklaces for your hips.
Of course, no matter how you categorize this particular accessory, it will consistently portrait luxury. A seemingly average outfit is instantly upgraded by the addition of a draped, chain belt and if you happen to have one with those iconic double-c's, well, feel free to flip your hair. (Politely, of course.)
Rajon Rondo ponders a button-up shirt.
Did you know that NBA players have lives off the court? *pauses for response* Yea, me neither! JK, we all knew that because people are people, and professional basketball players are humans just like you and I. Just with freakish athletic ability. Oh, and some have 500 square foot sneaker closets.
The voyeuristic want to know more about what famous people do in their down time is a bug that will likely never die, so the NBA is teaming up with American Express to give the people what they want with a new monthly series called Off The Court. Each month, the league is choosing one extracurricular category and diving into the many ways their players express their passions for things other than basketball. This month's feature? Style, DUH! And they're kicking things off with none other than Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo.
Taylor Swift is headed to the catwalk to perform at this year's Victoria Secret's Fashion Show! While we're well aware of what the Angels will be wearing (bras, garter belts, etc.), what Taylor will perform in is a total ~mystery~. We've rounded up some of Taylor's past performance outfits that could serve as inspiration for the show: her typically modest dress will definitely stand out in a room full of scantily clad models, which is not an easy task.

The photo above depicts what Taylor could like performing in front of Behati Prinsloo (the future Mrs. Adam Levine, BTW), in a white turtleneck dress. The dress is multi-layered, and while it looks like some midriff/chest skin is showing, that is a ruse! It's skin-colored fabric covering her actual skin. Swift leaves the exposed epidermis to the ladies in wings.
Rihanna gives a sneak peak of her 'What Now' style.

Over the weekend, Rihanna posted a few short clips to Instagram of fans singing along to a live performance of her new single, “What Now.” One of the accompanying captions implied that a music video for the song would be coming soon, and judging from those videos, we got the impression that it might be fan-fueled. D’awww! #RihannaNavyLove Well, that may still be the case, but we now know that it will also include THE MULLET. Oh, and a very ripped, #ghettogoth Rihanna. BONUS!
According to Rihanna, the video for “What Now” is set to be released on #FRIHDAY (see what she did there?), and from the two style snaps she shared, it’s going to be RULL angsty. AND, if the lyrics of the song are any indication, the reason she’s squatting in that corner looking so angry in her heavy black eye makeup praaahbably has something to do with some unresolved issues with a certain *achem* trouble-making ex. But that’s just a guess, of course.

Miley Cyrus and co. in handmade 'Bangerz' tour merch.

In case you weren't sure what Miley Cyrus' upcoming Bangerz tour would be like, this promo video and its hand drawn t-shirts can serve as a reminder of what she's been up to for the past few months. It'll be easy for Smilers to create their own replica shirts at home because, well, the designs on these shirts require little to no skill. But also, if they were sold as merch on tour, we'd be more than OK with that.
Miley, who is chewing and smacking her gum like she's still in her "We Can't Stop" video, wears a shirt with two tongue-wagging, red-lipped mouths drawn across the chest. Each tongue has "Bangerz" scrawled across it, which, hopefully, isn't inspiration for Miley's next tattoo. Tongue tats are a no go, Miles! She also has on hot pants because duh, but, unusually, they're black and have sheer panels in them. You could call them underwear and no one would correct you.
Jennifer Lawrence in couture Christian Dior.

Today was a big day for Jennifer Lawrence. Mainly because it was the red carpet debut of her super-new, super-short pixie cut. OK, also because today was the world premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in London. You know, small details. But while the world was waiting with bated breath to see how J. Law would style her freshly cut ‘do (answer: slicked back), it was her Christian Dior gown that really held the public's gaze. (Those metallic, midnight blue Kurt Geiger pumps aren't half bad either.)
A still from 'Searching,' a short film starring Selena Gomez.
When we peeped Selena Gomez's Flaunt Magazine spread last week, we were totally digging her blunt bob. Despite our positive feelings, in the corresponding short film that was just released, it's clear Selena was not feeling her new 'do.
The video begins with Selena in bed, in the same lingerie/skirt combo from the shoot. Also in bed? That shirtless guy! He's known by his family, friends, and fans as Shiloh Fernandez. He plays guitar (shirtless), nuzzles Selena (shirtless), and smiles (shirtless). Just as we were getting used to him, he disappears.
Lady Gaga gets ready to take flight.

On the eve of ARTPOP, Lady Gaga wore ten different outfits to debut her flying dress in Brooklyn last night—and LBR: that HAS to be some sort of record. Even for Gaga, a woman who seemingly changes clothes every time she exits a building, ten different outfits over the course of several hours, for just one event, is pretty impressive. I mean, hello! That is, like, almost as many costume changes as she had in the music video for “Applause" alone, and that wasn't even live.
The multi-platform artRave event, which included a gallery tour with a 100-inch replica of Jeff Koons’ Gaga sculpture, an 8-song performance, and a full demonstration of that much-hyped flying dress, celebrated creativity and Lady Gaga’s keen ability to overpack. JK! It was all about the creativity. But seriously, let's talk about all those outfits.
