Yaaas, you didn't think we'd forgotten about Coachella, did you? Nooo, of course we didn't! We recruited our old pal Jarvis Derrell of #shehashadit to comment on some of the looks from the festival because, as we know, #everybodyaintable. Peep below to see what you may have missed in Indio.

Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX performing on 'Good Morning America.'

Yesterday, when we checked in with with Iggy Azalea, the rapper was Instagramming her Scarface-themed tour wardrobe. Today on Good Morning America, where she performed her collaborative hit “Fancy” with Charli XCX, she returned to the song’s Clueless roots. Though she, Charli, and their dancers ditched their renditions of Cher’s iconic yellow plaid outfit, they kept the high school vibe and their killer coordination on-point with white and black outfits.
Jack Johnson + flip flops + Earth Day = well, right

This is not a drill. Today is Earth Day, and Jack Johnson has just released a collection of eco-conscious flip-flops. I repeat, this is not a drill. If the idea of Jack Johnson putting out a line of laid-back sandals has you singing, "JJ Casuals, shoes that look like feet," to yourself, YOU'RE NOT ALONE. The moment this little announcement landed in my inbox, visions of Andy Samberg clad in a hemp necklace and oversized plastic Hobbit feet flooded my mind's eye. Immediately after that, I actually opened the press release.
Nicki Minaj at 'The Other Woman' premiere.

OK. We are officially obsessed with Nicki Minaj's newly subtle and sophisticated style. Remember how perfectly beautiful she looked at the MTV Movie Awards this year? (I, personally, haven't been able to forget.) She decided to take a similar route at the premiere for her new movie The Other Woman last night, and we got deja vu in ALL the right ways. Her cream-colored, knitted Alexander McQueen dress was just as discreetly striking and conservative as the black McQueen from a couple weeks ago. Maybe even MORE SO, what with its unique texture and neckline and all.
Rihanna for 'Vogue Brazil.'

The last time we saw shirtless Rihanna, she used her hair to cover essential parts. In a new photo from her Vogue Brazil spread, though, Rihanna has no hair to spare. She's sporting her short 'do from this winter and what she lacks in shirts, she makes up for in gold. Most people don't stoop over an outdoor sink wearing wrists full of gold bangles and a gold choker, but Rihanna isn't most people, obviously.
With prom season in full swing, we've been keeping our eyes peeled for the best dresses out there on the interwebz. Last week we brought you dresses under $150 and between $150 and $350, but today we're breaking out the big guys. We looked around for the 10 dresses we think are worth the splurge. We're talking big bucks here—$350 and up—so we only included ones we are 100% in love with. Check 'em out below!
SOLID AND STRUCTURED
If you're in the market for a dress that is, as far as prom dresses go, simple and something you may wear again, these three dresses are what you're looking for. The first option, a peachy color, is structured at the top, but flares into a full skirt at the bottom ($348). The second, besides being a gorgeous royal blue, is structured in an unusual way—you're guaranteed to have one of the most unique skirts at prom ($398). The final option is a simple, strapless red dress that you can definitely wear after prom, if you so choose ($425). It might be a little formal, but if I owned that dress I'd wear it to, like, brunch. I'd want everyone to see it constantly.
What would Rita Ora steal from Prince's closet?

From the moment we read in Rita Ora's interview (with bestie Nick Grimshaw) for Paper magazine that Prince assisted with her forthcoming sophomore album, we've been OBSESSED with this idea of His Royal Badness letting her play dress-up in his closet à la that Super Bowl episode of New Girl. Naturally, we HAD to slip this question into her MTV Twitter Takeover today (Monday, April 21): If you could steal one thing from Prince's closet, what would it be? We ask the hard-hitting Qs around here, y'all.
Iggy shows off her new tour wardrobe

Iggy Azalea’s new tour outfits have us feeling some type of way. To be honest, we were hoping her obsession with Clueless would never end. There’s still plenty of scenes she hadn’t yet tapped, from Cher’s red Alaïa dress to her white Calvin Klein one, not to mention her sweater vest and white sheer shirt/argyle skirt driving test outfit. But Iggy has already moved on to another iconic movie: Scarface. Because Tony Montana is a totally natural shift from Cher Horowitz. The two characters might not have a lot in common at face value, but actually, they both share a love of designer clothes and palatial homes. Also, as a rapper, referencing Scarface is kind of a rite of passage. See: Future, 2 Chainz, Soulja Boy, Notorious B.I.G., etc.
Emma Stone on the cover of 'Vogue.'
After running one of the magazine's most controversial covers ever (more like #WORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTCOVER, amirite??), Vogue is playing it a little safer with their May issue. Of course, safe doesn’t mean boring, especially in the case of two-time cover star Emma Stone. The 25-year-old actress opens up about everything, from never having watched Easy A to referring to herself as “that bland basic b****” after a Google search of herself yielded that description. Basically, she confirms her reputation as someone you’d want as your BFF. Emma is also down to earth when it comes to her style—she doesn’t even think she’s influential in that respect. But, umm, Em, we politely disagree with you. Case in point: any time she hits a red carpet and, obviously, her two Vogue covers.
