In case you were unaware of why Rihanna was wearing that sheer, yet totally sparkly, dress last night, it's because it was Monday, duh. A casual Monday night outfit, right? JK, it was because she was named the CFDA Fashion Icon of the Year and she needed to bring it, big time. After being introduced by Anna Wintourusing emojis, BTW—Rihanna delivered a short and sweet speech in which she touched on how much she loves fashion and, as always, was a total badgal/the best.

Below are a few of our fave quotes from her speech last night on top of some of our all-time fave ~lewks~.Enjoy!

While you were sleeping this weekend, Zebra Katz, whom you might know from the earworm "Ima Read," released a new music video for "Tear the House Up" (featuring Hervé). The Brandon LaGanke and John Calucci (of Ghost+Cow) video features some of our favorite menswear designers—Walter van Beirendonck, KTZ, Mark McNairy—in bright and bold, fully immersive environments. Dedicated followers of fashion will remember that Katz's nod to Paris Is Burning ("Ima Read") also provided the soundtrack to Rick Owens' Fall/Winter 2012 Paris show. Hip-hop fans will appreciate his minimal, straightforward approach to electro-house. The rest of you with eyes will enjoy his fearless outfits—styled by Solange Franklin. And without further ado, let's get into it.

The video opens up with several consecutive shots that zoom in on Zebra on a white throne in the midst of what can only be a McDonald's PlayPlace on acid. Minus the face paint originally found on the runway, Katz is clothed head to toe in a look from Walter Van Beirendonck Winter 2014/2015 "Crossed Crocodiles Growl" collection. He has, however, accessorized with painted-on gold eyebrows.

Shailene Woodley

The thing about Shailene Woodley, esteemed flower child and self-confessed clay eater, is that despite her enduring love of five-finger shoes, she really cleans up nicely. She's consistently among the best dressed on any given red carpet, and last night's opening of The Fault in Our Stars was no exception.

For the highly anticipated premiere of the even more highly anticipated flick (which is FINALLY HITTING THEATERS THIS FRIDAY, AND YES THAT REQUIRES ALL CAPS BECAUSE !!!), she wore a bright yellow, one-of-a-kind Ralph Lauren Collection peplum dress. The silhouette, a longtime fave of Jennifer Lawrence, Rita Ora, and Michelle Williams, is nothing we haven't all seen before, but there's a reason it pops up at pretty much every major red carpet event—it's wildly flattering, super elegant, and, well, who doesn't like a little ruffle action now and then?

Miley Cyrus, We Can't Stop

Good morning, Smilers! Time to call up 50 of your closest friends, slip on your platform sneakers, and stretch your tongue muscles. All those extra rehearsals you've been putting in with your twerk team are finally going to pay off. That's right, it's the one-year anniversary of Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop." I know, I can't believe it either, it seems like our girl Miley has been everywhere lately. And in a way, she has.

In our hearts counts, right?

But what if you don't have a veiled beanie, a shaved platinum undercut, or a gold-plated grill? Never fear. We got you. Stampd LA has restocked their previously sold-out White West Coast Crop Top. It's $42 and bound to sell out fast—Smilers, go #HARD.

Chris Kattan, Mango

The last person you'd expect to see at the CFDAs (basically the Oscars of fashion) is a goofy comedian. UNLESS, of course, he was dressed as the most fashionable Saturday Night Live character of all time (besides Maya Rudolph as Donatella). We're talking about none other than Mango, the enchanting exotic dancer played by Chris Kattan during his time on the show. When we saw Mango walk down the red carpet as Alexander Wang's date, we were equal parts excited and confused. Sure, we were stoked to see the character resurrected in leather hot pants and a glittery beret, but also...why was he there in the first place?

At the CFDA Awards tonight where she's currently presenting the Womenswear Designer of the Year award, Lupita Nyong'o did just about the most deserving thing of that honor she could: She went out on a limb in the name of fashion, switching up her usual monochromatic gown game. Lupita completely slayed the red carpet in a splashy Suno jumpsuit.

Welp. Rihanna certainly knows how to make an entrance. The guest of honor arrived at the 2014 CFDAs (Tuesday, June 2) to accept her Fashion Icon Award in a dress guaranteed to raise a lot of eyebrows (and then some). Hot on the heels of her public display of support for #FreeTheNipple and her own nipple-related Instagram deletion, Badgal Riri hit the red carpet in an appropriately titillating (sorry, couldn't resist) gown.

Prince French Open

No one lives up to their name quite like Prince. The funk lord's outfits are always stage-ready even when he's just chillin' on the sidelines. Today at the French Open, Prince totally stole the show in his relaxed-yet-regal ensemble, which included a white turtleneck worn under an oversized navy jersey with matching flared trousers. (Also, please note the barely-there 'stache. Perfection.) But it's The Purple One's accessory of choice that we think really stole the show. And we're NOT talking about those mirrored aviator sunglasses.

A$AP Ferg

Astrid Andersen, the super-rad menswear designer loved by dudes and girls alike, tapped A$AP Ferg as the face of her new collaboration with Topman, because she's cool, and he's cool, and together their coolness cannot be stopped. I mean, LOOK!

The dudes of A$AP Mob are no strangers to modeling—remember when Rocky gave his best blue steel for DKNY? Of course you do. But this is Ferg's first time posing for the camera for a brand, at least as far as campaigns go. Not that you'd ever be able to tell—the guy looks like he was was born to mean mug in hot pink basketball shorts.

Nicki Minaj

Bringing back the pasties.

Recently, Nicki Minaj has been keeping her look subdued. She's worn floor-length gowns to events in lieu of, like, a billion stuffed animals and has been favoring simple hair to wigs. She even—it seems—was so done with her wigs that she gave them to Rihanna. While we've enjoyed Nicki's new ~lewk~, we'd by lying if we said we didn't miss her old one. Well, good news—last night she brought back one of her former fave accessories: pasties!

Nicki performed at Hot 97 Summer Jam (and hung out with Rih, #JEALZ) wearing some silver star pasties and a completely sheer chain mail shirt. Nicki has been a longtime fan of pasties, but this is the first time we can think of that she's ever worn them on stage. She's worn them in videos, in the comfort of her own home, and on Halloween, but never as, like, an integral part of her outfit. It makes sense, though, considering how much she hates bras.

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