Lady Gaga for 'Attitude' magazine.
For the December cover of Attitude magazine, Lady Gaga dyed her hair grey, refused to wash it for three weeks and repeatedly rubbed her strands with beeswax like kindling for a fire. JK! She’s wearing another wig. Quite possibly her heaviest wig yet! I mean, just look at that stack. That thing weights at least as much as a Pomeranian, if not a full-grown Corgi. Loyal Little Monsters may recognize this big ol’ heap o’ hair from a rando ARTPOP promo pic that Gaga tweeted back in September, where she was snapped sitting in a chair constructed of computer chips while wearing a burlap onesie. Naturally.

Nike's 2013 SneakerBoot Collection
Winter's coming! Hide your kids (sneakers), hide your wives (other sneakers). Shackle the shutters, gather your loved ones and light a fire! (Not with sneakers. #RIPLeftEye)
All right, calm down. Just because snow will soon dust the ground doesn't mean that you absolutely must say good-bye to sneaks for several gloomy months. In fact, there's hope for us all, sneaker lovers. We have options. Good ones! So take a deep breath, find acceptance in your mind grapes for the upcoming season, and let's discuss ways to keep sneakers in regular winter rotation without sacrificing them to slush, salt, snow and doom. No shade to boots, though. Boots are great. We love boots. All hail boots! But back to sneakers.
Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of 'InStyle.'
Behold pre-pixie Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of the December issue of InStyle. The cover captured J.Law before her major chop and dye job, at a time when, according to the Hunger Games star, her hair was an "awkward length" and "awkward color." Yesterday, during a Yahoo Fireside Chat, Jennifer said she cut it because it "...couldn't get any uglier." It's really not that bad, Jenn! It looks sleek slicked down on this cover and, TBH, we're feeling the "awkward" length, but if you're not happy, we're not happy.
Gisele and Daft Punk for 'The Wall Street Journal' Magazine.

Aww SNAP! Karlie, take your earrings off and put your dukes up, girl. Gisele just popped up on the cover of the Wall Street Journal magazine with BOTH of your men. Oh, you didn’t know Karlie Kloss was in a thruple with Daft Punk? JK, she’s not. But she did appear in an oddly similar editorial spread with the helmet-clad electronic duo for Vogue in July. Those two are gettin’ lucky, indeed.
For the November cover of the Wall Street Journal magazine (which was shot by Terry Richardson), Daft Punk got handsy with Gisele Bündchen, wearing what looks to be the ~exact~ same helmets they wore in Vogue. Hmm. *strokes imaginary beard* But hey, at least they took their suit game in a totally different direction with some SUPER shiny sequined blazers and slim-line tuxedo pants. Oh, wait. Turns out that while their suits may appear to be from another planet entirely, Saint Laurent actually dressed Daft Punk for *both* editorial spreads. WHATEVER. Maybe they're just particular! Besides, they’re musicians, not models!
Gisele strikes a power pose on her WSJ cover in a navy, plunging, semi-sheer Atelier Versace jumpsuit and surprisingly, doesn't seem to have a problem with how close that one gold guy's hand is to her, um, ladyplace. (*Insert another "Get Lucky" joke here.*)
M.I.A. had been MIA (heh) from our lives for the past few months, but now she's back in a big way and, frankly, we couldn't be happier. The past couple of weeks have been filled with M.I.A. news: first came her collaboration with Versus Versace, then the release of her fourth studio album, Matangi, and now, a stunning spread in V Magazine. Each venture requires a vastly different set of skills, but luckily for M.I.A. (and us), she seems to be good at everything.
The spread was shot by Inez & Vinoodh, the same pair who shot Lady Gaga's four V covers and spreads, and features M.I.A. in Jeremy Scott and with bangs and a choppy cut.
Lady Gaga in New York

BREAKING NEWS: Lady Gaga wore an outfit another human on planet Earth would consider wearing. That person in the photo above this text is, in fact, Stefani Germanotta, a.k.a. Lady Gaga. You may not recognize her because she's not wearing her creepy new grill, isn't holding a giant seashell above her head, and doesn't have an inexplicable claw in her hand. You can trust us, though: that's definitely her.
It was announced yesterday that Gaga would be the first person to perform in space. Don't worry, Little Monsters, the performance is scheduled for 2015, so you still have time to buy your tickets and prepare to be in zero-gravity. Surprisingly, following the announcement, Gaga didn't make an appearance in a space suit or alien mask, but rather, dressed in head-to-toe black. She even had on flats instead of the 9-inch boots she's been wearing lately. Flats are more sensible for space, I suppose.
Trish Summerville gets it. As the edgy, ambitious costume designer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Summerville's been tasked with combining high fashion (see: The Capitol), high function (see: the games) and stuff that straight up looks pretty on screen (see: well, all of it). And even though the film has yet to hit theaters (15 DAYS AND COUNTING), the few glimpses we've gotten of Panem's ornate new garments have already earned her a Style Award for Film Costumer of the Year. *brushes shoulders off*
With the second Hunger Games installment only weeks away, Summerville sat down with Refinery 29 to spill some deets on the method to her madness for dressing all 12 districts. Her artistic visions (and how they materialized) were insightful, creative and totally on point. Oh, and also, it sounds like her job is SO MUCH FUN. Here's what we learned:
Ke$ha in a still from 'My Crazy Beautiful Life.'
It's obvious that Ke$ha likes to have fun on tour (see: her mom in a penis costume). My Crazy Beautiful Life makes it evident just how much fun she likes to have: pranks are plentiful and last night's episode featured one that included red Solo cups, hot-pink duct tape, and tiger masks (obvs).
Ke$ha and team decided to surprise her opening act, Semi-Precious Weapons, by running onstage with nothing but strategically placed cups. For an extra precaution, Ke$ha decided to tape hers in place with hot pink duct tape, creating a halter-top, party-bra. If you squint your eyes just so, it's almost a makeshift homage to Madonna's pointy cone bra. Like, basically you have to have your eyes closed... Meow.
Aaaaaaanyway, she paired the jury-rigged top with a tiger head because, as everybody knows, those are the ironclad rules. It's too bad Halloween just ended, this would've been the perfect ~sexy~ tiger costume. Luckily, Ke$ha didn't have to take the stage alone in such a precarious outfit: her dancers joined her.
Taylor Swift on the CMA Awards red carpet.

At first glance, the sophisticated red gown Taylor Swift wore to this year's CMA Awards seemed pretty predictable. I mean, let’s be honest: she’s been known to rock full-skirted, feminine frocks a time or two (or ten) and this Elie Saab piece ~appears~ to be no different.
The ornate, crystal detailing, the demure neckline, the ample train—don’t get us wrong, the girl looks gorgeous. But it feels a little safe, no? NOPE. Further inspection reveals a dramatic, plunging back with The Most Perfect gathers that accentuate her tiny waist. Swoooooon. Taylor accessorized the business-in-front-party-in-the-back gown with stunning Lorraine Schwartz jewels, Jimmy Choo heels and a delicate chignon. Needless to say, we’re into it. (And hello! It’s red. Because, you know, Red. Heh. *sigh*)
