Honestly, we would have been perfectly happy with the first set of Erykah Badu campaign photos for Givenchy. They're refreshing and statuesque, and though they're few in number, just the fact that EB is fronting this thing is good enough for us. But then (THEN), she posted six new pics on Facebook showing off pieces from the fashion house's Spring/Summer 2014 collection with iconic items from the recent past like the Rottweiler tee, the star collar, and the Pieta print (all magnified by her own natural beauty).
On a recent Instagram spree under her new music label’s account, Saint Heron, Solange Knowles posted some very sunny pictures of her wearing her signature bright colors and showing off her flair for pattern mixing. But after a little sleuthing, it appears that these looks could be from a photoshoot with Cosmopolitan for their March 2014 issue, which would make total sense. Solange has always had a knack for springtime style. In fact, her wardrobe is like a how-to guide for wearing pastels without looking like a bag of Easter M&Ms. Those who suffer from all-black wardrobes and a fear of bold colors (*achem* what has two thumbs?), take note!
Judging by this spread and Miley Cyrus’ recent new look, slip dresses are poised for greatness this spring. Solange embraces the trend with a canary-yellow DKNY dress, only instead of going full-on ‘90s with a shag cardigan, hers is minimally styled with satin peep-toe mules from Sportmax and Jennifer Fisher rings. (Fun fact: J. Fisher is also a favorite of Sol's sister, Beyonce, who wore the brand to the Grammys with her Michael Costello gown.)

Selenators, Selena Gomez has some new designs for her Dream Out Loud line that you're going to L-O-V-E. Selly posted a picture of herself ~chillin~ in the studio in some SELENATORS-emblazoned sweatpants, and we must say, they look like the perfect piece to add to your closet if "Come & Get It" is your #1 most-played track in iTunes. Repping your stan status while simultaneously wearing something your fave designed? It's a hard combo to come by, but Selena nailed it just for you. That is, Sel's fans actually asked for these designs, and hearing their cries, she not only provided the swag, but options, too.
Miley Cyrus for 'W.'

No, the headline isn't wrong. This is a picture of Miley Cyrus, not Lady Gaga. Can you believe it? We barely can, TBH. After Miley's W cover leaked last week, we knew the full story and spread would likely be out soon. What we didn't realize was just how soon. A mere three days after the leak, the spread has arrived in full. Obviously, we need to discuss it.
While the piece, penned by Ronan Farrow, is titled "Miley Cyrus Laid Bare," Miley does little laying and is not entirely bare in the spread shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The bleached brows and longer bob she has on the cover remains throughout the spread, but instead of using only a pillow, she (partially) covers up with clothing, like a fully unbuttoned Balmain leather jumpsuit.
Happy Valentine's Day! Love, Nicki
Flowers? YAWN. Chocolate? No, thank you. Valentine's Day is right around the corner and, luckily for all you clueless dudes out there, Nicki Minaj is here to save you from the dog house. This year, Minaj has done the world a serious solid by providing every guy with the perfect holiday gift: jewelry. What's that you say? You haven't been saving up? You don't think you can afford luxe bling for your lady? You didn't even know it was February already?! Well, relax. Because not only is Nicki's new line of accessories totally fun, but it's totally affordable, too! Yeah, we know. She's the best.

You may have been distracted by the glinting, gleaming, Elvis-channeling sheen of Bruno Mars and his band's metallic gold smoking jackets on the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime stage, but from a fashion standpoint, the real star of that show (IMHO) was Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis. No, not just because he was shirtless (though MAJOR props for doing so in the middle of winter in the Northeast, dude). Look at this guy's leggings!!
Whomp. Our Friday nights are about to feature a lot less Carrie Bradshaw. The Carrie Diaries season finale aired last night, and whether or not the show will be coming back anytime soon remains up in the air. I guess I will have to Google Austin Butler's name every once in a while to see how he's doing instead of watching his QT face on my screen. I guess I'll live. The episode wrapped up a lot of loose ends, and while I'd be sad if Carrie & Co. were never to return, I'd be satisfied with where things were left. Especially with all of the fashion that we were treated to in this final episode. While Carrie getting fired from Interview and deciding to move to L.A. with Sebastian was a major plot point, the main event was Larissa's wedding. We have all the deets on wedding looks from Eric Daman, the show's costume designer, so LEGGO!

After getting fired from her job, Carrie turns to her ex-BF Weaver (#hey) for advice. She visits him at his brownstone, which, BTW, bears an eerie resemblance to the one future CB lives in. Eric told us, "I really wanted to have an end of season flash forward to fabulous Carrie Bradshaw fashion moment! A super special AHA outfit that was an ode to the Sex and the City Carrie we know and love! And so I put together this little ensemble: gorgeous green statement coat (borrowed from my BF Blair Waldorf)? Check! Midi circle skirt with crinoline? Check! Totally '80s leopard-print top? Check! Totally amazing shoes (found these to-die-for Sophia Webster pencil and notebook paper Mary Janes on a last-minute run to Bergdorf's and died a little at how they were THE perfect embodiment of a Carrie shoe! The fashion! The whimsy! The writing utensils!). And, of course, no tenue du jour would be Carrie Complete without a Fendi baguette (in glass tile mosaic...WHAT?!?). I call this look 'back to the future fashion phenom!'"

Happy birthday, Harry!

Today is Harry Styles' 20th birthday, which means there are no longer any teens in One Direction! It's totally acceptable to be a 20-something who loves the band, because now they are all 20-somethings, too! YAY. Let us rejoice! Last year, we wished Harry a year of good hair days, unaware that he'd soon be swapping his trademark side swept 'do for something a little more vertical. In the past year, Harry has stepped up his accessory game, introducing a variety of headbands and hats into his on- and offstage looks. Begrudgingly (JK 4EVA!), we pored over hundreds of photos of 19-year-old Harry to find some of his best headgear. We don't know what the next year will bring for sire Styles, but it's almost guaranteed to be fashion and accessory-filled. I mean, the dude is a British Style Icon. Plus, there's our inevitable wedding (I'm looking at dates in 2014), so he's bound to look great for that.
Happy birthday, Harry! Here are 20 things you wore on your head this year, in case you forgot!
When he was a boyish 18, the only hats Harry wore were beanies. They flop, his hair flopped, it was a match made in floppy heaven. At 19, though, Harry introduced new hats into his wardrobe. There was the ubiquitous tan fedora he wore all summer and the black porkpie hat he showed off on Instagram. He also began wearing hats to award shows and on stage. At the Teen Choice Awards, he debuted a wide-brimmed hat that could've easily been stolen from John Mayer's closet, and onstage in Australia, he wore some local flare.

• Celebs gave us a LOT to look at during the 2014 Grammy Awards. Bey and Jay kicked things off with a super-sexy performance, everyone and their mother decided to wear a hat and tons of stars gave us major nail art envy with their outfit-coordinating digits.
• Even though she's been talking about wanting to grow her hair out for months, Miley Cyrus debuted a new, shorter 'do the night before the Grammys. She also opted to turn her pixie platinum, and we have to say—the girl looks good.
• Beyonce gave hope to lazy girls everywhere by sporting wet hair for her sultry performance at the Grammys. Harry Styles also opted to forgo a blowdryer in promo pics for One Direction's new video for "Midnight Memories." Both stars totally rocked the fresh-out-the-shower look, but we want to know who YOU think rocked it better!
• ICYMI, Miley performed with Madonna during her Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged performance. But instead of sticking with one of her long-loved pantless leotards, Miley channeled her godmother, Dolly Parton, and opted for bedazzled double denim instead.
• Emma Watson made magic happen for Wonderland magazine and she didn't even use a wand. (We don't think.) Watson guest edited the newest issue of the stylish glossy and served up two very different, very high-fashion looks on dual covers.

Dennis Graham. Maybe you've heard of him? No? Well, let me refresh your memory: DAT 'STACHE. Still nothing? OK, well, Dennis Graham is the father of Aubrey Graham, AKA Drizzy Drake, and in
Movember November, he was the living, breathing definition of a Cool Dad with a guest role in his son's music video for "Worst Behavior." Now, not only has he been immortalized on the internet, but according to a recent photo Drake posted on Instagram, Dennis Graham has officially been immortalized in ink on his son's inner forearm.
