It's official: the fashion world is infected with Miley Cyrus fever, and by the looks of it, this condition is highly contagious. But wait a second, that's a good thing! The singer is everywhere these days, whether she's twerking it in a unicorn onesie or glamming it up in...another onesie? Well, OK. *shrugs* Regardless of what she's wearing or who she's collab-ing with, we all know that Miley's got it (whatever "it" is). And now she's ushering in her highly anticipated new sound, new look, and new 'tude with yet another magazine cover! This time she's showing her style stuff for ELLE UK, trading her signature jumpers for a slick silk vest (unbuttoned to the stomach, natch) by Lanvin and a gold pendant by Saint Laurent. These straight-from-the-runway wares come topped off with a purple smoky eye, her trademark tats, and a sultry "come hither" swagger...if THIS cover doesn't send tons of panting fans to the newsstands, like, now, then sorry, we don't know what will.

Earlier this week we rounded up THE very best hair tutorials on YouTube to perfect before prom night, from classic cascading waves to an updated take on K.Stew's fishtail braid. Now that you've had a day or so to practice those, it's time for part two of the ultimate YouTube prom prep: yep, we're talking about makeup! The amount of beauty inspiration online right now is seriously overwhelming, so we've done the legwork for you and picked our top 5 how-to clips. And while they might not all be prom-specific, that's OK, because you'll have plenty of opportunities to show off your skills long after the dance (or even high school!) is over. But first, a warning: diving headfirst into a sea of makeup videos is a slippery slope —trust us, we've been there— so don't blame us if you get addicted and finally re-emerge to the real world hours later. So let's do this!
A$AP Rocky in the May issue of 'GQ.'

It's no surprise we have a thing for A$AP Rocky. Not only does that PMF have a GORGE smile and two killer albums under his belt, but he also has a serious affinity for fashion. *heart melts* He's been pretty candid about his obsession with certain designers, and it looks like mainstream fashion mags are (finally!) starting to pick up on A$AP's sartorially-savvy self. In the May issue of GQ, A$AP traded in his black leather and gold ensembles for something a bit more summery--yacht clothing. I know, I know, you're like, "A$AP Rocky? In nautical wear? How can it be?" But trust us--it happened, and it's UH-MAZING.

Hi, world! Remember gladiator sandals? Heh, well, they're back. In case you forgot, between 2005 and 2008 these strappy shoes we ALL the rage. Whether they were low-top, high-top, studded, tasseled, bedazzled or anything in between, everyone wanted their hands (er, feet?) on a pair. Eventually, they made their way out of the fashion world, and we haven't looked back—until now. We can't stop spotting celebrities wearing the strappy, Roman-inspired shoes as of late (see: Selena Gomez, Rihanna, and Rita Ora), and we need to discuss. I mean, we have to admit we're not too surprised at their comeback considering they were all over the Spring/Summer 2013 runways—everyone from Alexander Wang to Proenza Schouler decked out their models in knee-high gladiator shoes. The only difference is that this time around we're supposed to refer to them as "cutaway boots." Got it? Got it.

From her high-flying party anthems to her totally distinctive personal style, there's NO denying that our girl Ke$ha is an uncompromising original spirit...and that's exactly why we love her! But just in case you had any doubts about that fact, look no further than the singer's very own MTV show Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life, which gives us a peek inside her ridiculous everyday antics courtesy of her filmmaker brother (pssst, if you haven't seen it yet, drop whatever you're doing and watch it now!). Yep, the pop star has come about a zillion lightyears away from back when she was just a little kid making cameos The Simple Life, right?! So it's time, then, that we give Ke$h a well-deserved shoutout in our own way, by rounding up the absolute very best stuff for all the Animals out there. Whether it's repping her lyrics on your outfit OR just paying tribute with glitter or a gold tooth, crank up the music and check out these six ways to show Ke$ha some love.

Prom is probably the most major of high school moments. The dress, the date, the dance… a night you’ll remember and reminisce over for the rest of your life. So, what could be better than prom? Erm, how about FIVE proms? Because that’s exactly what Kitty Pryde got. The Florida-born, New York based-rapper, who is currently on tour with another fashion favorite Danny Brown, may be young— but she’s got the smart rhymes and sharp delivery of a stage vet. Her first single, “Ok Cupid,” which was recorded on her laptop in her bedroom closet, was named #17 on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Songs Of 2012, and “Orion’s Belt,” the catchiest of collabs with Riff Raff, is currently sitting at over 1.2 million views on YouTube. But before all the fame, Kitty was just a regular Daytona Beach babe, working at the mall and planning prom outfits. Like we said, the girl’s got experience. “I’ve gone a couple times with girlfriends, once with my gross ex-boyfriend, and most recently with my BFF Grant. He didn’t even become my BFF until I forced him to take me to prom like three days after I met him, but now we’re inseparable, so that’s the magic of prom for you.”
Chloe Moretz covers the May 2013 issue of NYLON.

Ever since the very beginning in the '90s with cover girls like Liv Tyler and Gwen Stefani, NYLON's always been one to show total and complete support for the latest crop of rising stars. But we've got to admit, for this year's annual Young Hollywood Issue, the magazine outdid even itself by choosing none other than Miss Chloe Grace Moretz (!!) to represent the new guard of up-and-comers. We first suspected something was up several weeks ago when the actress tweeted this photo of her rad pop art manicure, and now we can see the spread in all its fun high fashion glory. Fresh off her recent Teen Vogue stint, where she showed her tough-girl side in tulle coupled with studs and leather, Chloe's getting playful and punky here with mixed prints, tons of slogan tees, and a complete '90s style resurgence. Who knows? Maybe Liv Tyler's 1999 cover really HAS come full circle in 2013. See even more of the photoshoot below!
Guys, in case you were on the fence about onesies, they are officially a thing now. Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Cara Delevingne can't stop sporting the comfy getups, and today, we have ANOTHER fanatic to add to the bunch—Justin Bieber! Don't get us wrong—we know the Biebs has worn a onesie before, but we're noticing a serious resurgence in singlets as of late. JB went ALL. OUT. in a bright red hooded jumpsuit complete with matching sneakers and snapback hat while stopping through Stockholm on his Believe tour yesterday. He glammed up his look with a gold watch and chains, and his BFF Lil Za even joined in on the fun by sporting a black and white onesie of his own! #WERK
Selena Gomez in New York City.
From her clear accessories to subtle belly-baring pieces, there's absolutely no question that Selena Gomez has a real knack for whipping out ensembles we'd gladly steal for our own closets. But although Sel looking cute is nothing new, it's rarer when an outfit singlehandedly causes SUCH a stir that we stop whatever we're doing immediately to steal it for ourselves. Seriously, though! As soon as we spotted the actress and singer at Elvis Duran's radio show yesterday in New York dressed in all-over floral print, we knew we HAD to track this little number down. Luckily the communal search party didn't take too long, since her silk pajama-inspired pants, "Get It Girl" graphic tee, and white strappy heels are all from the same place: 3.1 Phillip Lim.
