As expected, Lady Gaga is in Austin at SXSW. Before her appearance on the Doritos #Boldstage, she hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live in a voluminous white dress and hat designed by Gareth Pugh. Oh, and they're both made from coffee filters. *pauses to allow you to process that information* Gaga revealed that in an attempt to "upcycle," she chose the dress and hat for her performance in Austin. Gee, I wonder where she got the idea to create her Austin wardrobe from household items? IDK, maybe these Doritos dress suggestions I offered last week? I see you, Gaga.

She and Jimmy discussed fashion (she got her flying dress at CVS, JK) and he inquired about her choices, and whether we'd ever see her in "Gap jeans" or "a nice pair of khakis." Ever the self-promoter, she told him to watch her performance because he might be in for a surprise. Did she dress like a Best Buy employee as Jimmy suggests? Did she wear a dress made from Doritos bags? Nah.

Witnessing a model wear a black leather two-piece with "Moschino" written in all-caps gold lettering across her stomach, forehead, leg, and boobs, your first thought might be, "Wow, who could possibly find a reason to wear that outfit IRL?" Well, we now have an answer for you: Nicki Minaj! The MC recently uploaded a massive batch of Instagram shots, each one featuring Jeremy Scott's aforementioned badass bikini. The impromptu photo shoot took place on the set of her video for "Senile," the single from Young Money's Rise of an Empire compilation (which explains why Birdman, Lil Wayne, and Tyga make cameos in some of the pics).

Emma Watson

When you think of cowgirl-chic fashion, several celebrities probably come to mind immediately. Dolly Parton, obviously. Or maybe her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, especially with her recent MTV Unplugged wardrobe. But you prooobably don't think of Emma Watson...ever. The brainy British actress is more Shakespeare than Stagecoach, for sure. But she totally has us fooled on her new Elle cover, where she looks as comfortable in her Western-inspired outfits as any ranch hand we've ever seen (which, granted, isn't many, but go with us here). She IS still Emma Watson, though, so of course she mixes her signature poise and style with the subtle country feel of the shoot. She starts with a double denim exas tuxedo (designer-made, natch), and the inside photos feature even more down-home flair.

You know what your Thursday needs? A sweet, sweet R&B slow jam. Listen, I know Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love to You" is a pretty aggressively ~seductive~ track to wedge into your work/school week, but just be glad I'm dispatching this toward the end of your day and not at 9 a.m. while you're finishing up your bagel and cream cheese. Also, it is EXTREMELY underrated in the universe of music video style. Since you likely don't remember this one off the top of your head, I'm breaking this #TBT down for you look by look.

Hey, remember when the Backstreet Boys were all lined up and glowing in pristine linens in an airplane hangar for their "I Want It That Way" video? Boyz II Men's above look predates that by five years. Fittingly for the early '90s, the dudes are working with bizarro, boxy-tailored pieces, and Wanya Morris in a jacket and trousers with a mismatched vest, and Michael McCary in a sleeveless vest with a Nehru collar. Also, some sort of cane and/or rain stick. IDK what's up with that. I don't remember that being a trend then.

Iggy Azalea

With the 2014 Woodies Festival mere hours away at SXSW, we can barely wait to see what Iggy Azalea has planned, wardrobe-wise. On Tuesday, Iggy tweeted that her costumes would be serving up some schoolgirl realness, and we know when Iggy does a theme, she does it hard (see: Halloween, the video for "Fancy"). In anticipation of her outfit, we figured we'd see what she'd look like in some schoolgirl inspired outfits other stars have worn. She has, of course, already given us a preview of what she looks like in a cheerleading uniform and Clueless attire (both school-ish...), but these are some different styles. Let's take a look.

Karl Lagerfeld

In case you missed the marriage of everyone's favorite two things (emojis and Karl Lagerfeld), Karl designed a set of emojis to coincide with the launch of his fragrance line. The app, which you can download now, is called emotiKARL and contains Karl-approved emojis, like various hands with fingerless leather gloves, the many emotions of Choupette, perfume bottles, and more. Since I have read, cherished, and savored a vast number of Karl interviews in my life, I am fairly confident I have an idea of how his emoji proposal meeting went down. Here is my fictional account of the meeting in our latest installation of Fashion Fanfic.

NB: In honor of Karl, I originally wrote this story in French. I have since translated it to English, though, so you don't have to.

Bangerz Tour, Roberto Cavalli, Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is beginning to rival Beyonce in ever-changing onstage outfits. Over the weekend in Milwaukee, she debuted a new leotard and a jacket made from stuffed animals. A mere two days later, in Dallas, she broke out two new Roberto Cavalli looks. We knew to expect some Cavalli on this tour—he shared his sketches in January—but we didn't know we would get TWO in the same night. Miley, you're spoiling us.

Jay Z, Kanye West

Jay Z and Kanye West reunite the Throne at SXSW.

Don't rub your eyes. The above picture of Jay Z and Kanye West is, in fact, NOT from 2011. Jay and Ye joined forces again LAST NIGHT (March 12) during Austin's SXSW music festival—a Watch the Throne reunion of epic proportions that was only just announced this Monday (March 10). Amidst many of their solo hits—"Tom Ford," "New Slaves," "Izzo (HOVA)," and "Runaway" to name a few—Yeezy and Hov performed Throne classics like "H*A*M," "Who Gon' Stop Me," "No Church in the Wild," "Otis," and of course, "N***** in Paris" for their two-hour, 35-song set. But the music wasn't the only part of the Throne they brought back: They also resurrected their Givenchy performance steez.

Veronica Mars

The many looks of Veronica Mars.

OK, Marshmallows, the fan-funded Veronica Mars movie is only a day away from theaters. Are you as excited/relieved as we are (impossible) that Veronica will finally be reunited with Logan, her one true love (sorry-not-sorry, Piz), as well as Wallace, Mac, Dick, and the rest of the Neptune Pirates?

Well, not so fast. First, let’s wallow in our nostalgia for creator Rob Thomas’ brilliant, short-lived series, which aired on UPN/The CW from 2004 until 2007 and starred Kristen Bell as a droll teenage detective trying to solve the murder of her best friend (Amanda Seyfried) in the small beach town of Neptune, California. The series ended after three seasons with things between Veronica and (obligatory-psychotic-jackass-turned-epic-love-interest) Logan (Jason Dohring) left tragically unresolved. The open-ended, unsatisfying finale only served to spur on a fandom that multiplied like gremlins in water over the six years since the series was yanked from the small screen, with the result being enough wallet-wielding followers that the proposed film version raised and surpassed its Kickstarter goal of $2 million within its first 11 hours, breaking records, causing aftershocks in pop culture, and becoming a cancelled-series fandom/crowd-funding legend.

And who could forget Veronica in those chunky Fluevog boots and military jackets? Or Logan's triumphant smoldering amid all that orange? Or Dick (Party Down's Ryan Hansen) rocking those smarmy statement tees? You’ve already seen the trailer, so you probably noticed how all growed up everybody is. Veronica is wearing black(!) pantsuits now, Mac (Tina Marjorino) has an awesome hair cut, and is that Logan looking perfectly at home in a fitted dress shirt? But before we swoon over the characters’ updated styles with the film’s costume designer, Genevieve Tyrrell, which we will do next week (so check back), we wanted to talk to the man who first put puka shells on Logan Echolls: series costume designer Salvador Perez (Pitch Perfect, The Mindy Project). “Rob created those characters, and he made them interesting, but I made them look cool,” says Perez. Indeed, and we have about 97 questions for him.

Pharrell

Pharrell Williams, the great collaborator, has just added another joint project to his résumé: a unisex fragrance with Comme des Garcons. From Daft Punk to BAPE, he has a knack for bringing established entities into his creative ecosystem and helping bring forth a beautiful, refreshing take on something you already loved. But he's more than just the ultimate remix artist; his collaborative projects are so wildly successful because of his ability to marry his own original creative sensibilities with a keen eye for curation—he knows precisely the best elements of a sound or an aesthetic to elevate. For all of the above reasons, we're SO excited about this forthcoming scent. The only thing we're disappointed about is: We sort of feel like we should have seen this coming.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
