How many times have you been out shoe shopping or picking out your next hair color and thought to yourself, "Hmmm. I seriously need some professional help right now." Don't you wish there was a way to ask stylists for tips without paying those hefty booking fees? Oh wait—THERE IS. Thanks to a genius new app called Notorious, you can now posit questions to experts in everything from beauty to fashion to home decor with one text-like click of a button. And I do mean experts. Like Shakira's personal trainer. Or Rita Hazan, Beyonce, and Katy Perry's hair stylist. That's right—you now have direct access to the magic behind Bey and KP's impeccable manes. Thanks, technology!
It seems like just yesterday we were lauding Lauren Conrad's decision to dye her typically blonde 'do pastel purple—APRIL FOOLS, it was yesterday (which, coincidentally, was April Fools' day). Turns out LC totally punk'd us and Photoshopped her lavender hair. Well, joke's on you, Lauren, because we are now convinced you should do it for real. More convinced than ever. We know Kristen Ess has the ability, we saw the color she "mixed"—quite the elaborate prank involving your hair colorist, TBH—so why not let her plop that mixture on your head? It looks sooo good.
Lauren isn't the first reality show star to fool the public into thinking she had gone purple—Nicole Richie posted a purple-haired pic to her Instagram, only to reveal she was joking. But then...she did it IRL. Will Lauren follow in her footsteps? We hope so.
Haim have always seemed like they’d be a blast to hang out and play dress up with, and now, we have confirmation of that, thanks to a recent shoot with The Coveteur. While our favorite sister-rock trio was getting ready to attend Chloe’s show at Paris Fashion Week, the closet photo blog captured the group’s wardrobe, provided by the French fashion house. Even though we usually see Haim in cut-off shorts, booties, and leather jackets, the band wears polished tailored pieces just as well. And, if you ask us, Chloe and Haim are pretty much the perfect pairing of sensibilities. They both have an enviable laid-back cool.

Leopard-print hair is not an easy look to incorporate into daily life, but that didn't stop Nick Cannon and Dennis Rodman from trying. Cannon is the latest member of the close-cropped, leopard-print hair club. His initiation was two days ago. He joins founding member Dennis Rodman, who was known for sporting (get it?) the style in 1998.
Cannon revealed in his Instagram caption that the process took five hours, but, as we all know, looking swaggy takes time. His hair is longer and curlier than Dennis', so the spots aren't as obvious—they could just as easily pass for polka dots. Dennis' spots, on the other hand, are starkly contrasted against his short bleached hair.

Hair is officially the biggest accessory for spring, at least in the world of editorial spreads with our favorite female musicians. We kind of called this one after seeing Solange’s angled 'fro in a Harper’s Bazaar feature and V Magazine’s very hairy music issue covers—now Essence magazine has confirmed our inkling with their May 2014 issue dedicated to the topic of natural hair. Fittingly, the magazine tapped Solange, Erykah Badu, and Ledisi—ladies whose hair (and music and style) we’ve always admired—to be the alternate cover stars.
Predictably, they all nailed it. Solange and Badu wore toned-down makeup, all the better to show off their wild curls. In a behind-the-scenes video, we get a closer look at their outfits. For the shoot, Solange stuck with a pastel palette, wearing a reverse-racerback, white lace crop top and mint crocheted skirt on the cover and an ostrich-feather-covered strapless dress and a pink floral jacket inside the issue.

It's no secret that Emma Watson's red carpet style is on point—I mean, she wore pants under a backless gown to the 2014 Golden Globes. She's not playing around. What was not so obvious until recently, however, is her equally envious ability to accessorize. We noted her jewelry collection at this year's Oscars, but she's also started accessorizing her hair and, TBH, each style she tries pairs perfectly with her outfit and doesn't overwhelm at all. We bow down.
At last night's London premiere of Noah, Emma wore silver and gold jewels on the right side of her updo. They appeared to be casually thrown in, but they transform a relatively simple look to a sleek one. Hi, perfect prom 2014 hair inspiration.
Lady Gaga has been hitting the town a TON recently—both for her history-making Roseland Ballroom residency and her 28th birthday. More Lady Gaga appearances means more Lady Gaga outfits. And more Lady Gaga outfits mean *drumrollllll* more installments of fashion math to break them down into simpler, more-digestible parts for the less ARTPOP-inclined! This round includes one custom Diane von Furstenberg catsuit, several platform booties, and a TON of House of Flora headgear and eyewear. Enjoy!

The topless trend is becoming so mainstream these days, it's a wonder designers even bother making shirts anymore. The latest "It" Girl to jump on the semi-nude bandwagon? Rita Ora on this month's cover of Elle UK. The British singer clearly doesn't need fancy clothes to look totally gorgeous, as she appears in nothing more than a pink Dior skirt and a Cartier bracelet. She is forced to share the spotlight with one other pretty gal, however—"Rosetta," her detailed ribcage tattoo.
Unless this is some kind of April Fools joke, Lauren Conrad has taken a purple plunge. I hope it's not a joke—her hair, as always, looks perfect. Like, I want to go to the drugstore right now, buy some purple dye, and color my hair in the bathroom. Sorry the sinks are stained purple, coworkers, but this was a hair emergency—bye boring blonde, hello pretty purple!
It was only a few weeks ago that we were complimenting LC's short, springy 'do and now she's taken the look to an entirely different level. This pastel purple isn't the first unnatural color Lauren has tried out—she's gone both pink and multi-color before—but it's the first time she's committed to having the shade for more than a weekend. In a blog post, she explains that while she normally uses temporary dye, this time she went with semi-permanent, which lasts for six to eight weeks. A bold move, but one I respect (and envy), since it looks so good.
