Harry's heart is officially within reach.

Sorry, world (and Maeve, especially). You put up a good fight, but I just figured out how to make Harry Styles my husband. No, it doesn't have anything to do with One Direction's new perfume, or repairing Harry's holey/holy black jeans, headgear, and fashion shows, or taking down his lyrically outspoken famous ex. *WINK*
I've come to the conclusion that Harry Styles, both figuratively AND literally, wears his precious little heart on his bulging bicep sleeve. And I'm going to take full advantage of my recently acquired knowledge by appealing to his love of symbolic body art. Yep, that's right. I'm going to get a tattoo of my cardiac muscle on my left arm, just like the one Hazza casually debuted on a recent outing, so that there'll be no question in his mind that we are TOTALLY made for each other. Two hearts, beating as one. #notpsychoatall
Did Rihanna just get a haircut between Paris Fashion Week shows?

If you thought fashion month was winding down just because we're on our last leg—Paris Fashion Week—think again! It seems Balenciaga's unexpected guest (#KanyeAlert) isn't the only surprise popping off in Paris: I'm preeetty sure Rihanna just got a haircut BETWEEN SHOWS. *rubs eyes, does triple take, gets whiplash, rubs neck also*
Angelina Jolie, Michelle Williams, Halle Berry, Bjork, and Anne Hathaway wore memorable Oscars dresses.

You guys, the 86th Annual Academy Awards are this Sunday. Like, in three days. Do you have your viewing gowns picked out? Have you picked up cheeses for your appetizer spread? Phew. Us, too. In order to mentally prepare ourselves for all the red carpet looks we'll be treated to on Sunday (also, #tbt), we're taking a look at past Oscars' looks—from Angelina Jolie's right leg-baring Versace Atelier gown to Anne Hathaway's nipple-parody-inducing Prada dress, and everything that came before them.
If you even remotely like Mariah Carey, clothes, or IDK Planet Earth, there is a jacket that just came in stock at Nasty Gal that you NEED to know about. The brainchild of notoriously irreverent brand Unif, our new favorite statement piece first came to our attention about a month ago, courtesy of a sneak-peek Instagram, and we've been feverishly refreshing the e-tailer's homepage ever since.
Travi$ Scott for Mr Porter.

"I just hate stuff that's not fresh," Travi$ Scott tells Mr Porter, the menswear e-tailer who's snapped a slew of sexy men (including Miguel, Jared Leto, and A$AP Rocky) in the FRESHEST of designer duds. "Fresh is about maintaining an ill aesthetic at all times." True to his word, Scott kicked back at the shoot looking nothing less than that, wearing only black suede Balmain biker trousers and a few gold chains.
But as the first of Porter's pictures prove, the 21-year-old Kanye West protege had no problem transforming from shirtless and tat-strapped to a casually dapper rapper, dressed in a crisp, white Christophe Lemaire button-up, black sweatpants by Neil Barrett, and slip-on sneakers by Maison Martin Margiela. (We assume that the diamond-lined grill is his own, and are not-so-secretly stoked that there's no mention of Porter's interviewer getting to swap spit like we did last year at the VMAs. *brushes shoulders off*)
One Direction thinking about That Moment.

Directioners, y'all better start bathing in Our Moment, because One Direction already has a new perfume on the way. In a video just released by the band, Harry reveals that a new edition of Our Moment, not-very-creatively named That Moment, will be released soon. Before we get to this new perfume, can we talk about the video? Is this 30-second clip the reason Harry was MIA when the band won its first award at the 2014 Brit Awards? He's in the same outfit and a dimly lit room—who knows how long he was hanging out in there. Is it called That Moment because of that moment when Harry was nowhere to be found? Some questions have no answers.
The new fragrance, Harry tell us, will take some of the old notes like "pink grapefruit and jasmine" and mix them with "green apple and violet." The best part, though (LBR, we're not buying it because of how it smells), is that it'll come in a "swanky new bottle." YAAAS. Swanky bottles are the best kind of bottles!! Let's check this bad-boy bottle out!
Versace's original sketch and Beyonce wearing the 'Bow Down' jacket.

We've been keeping track of Beyonce's Mrs. Carter Show wardrobe to an almost obsessive degree lately. (So have you. Don't try to deny it.) The new custom-made Versace pieces have surpassed all expectations, and the original design drawings posted to Bey's website are such a welcome bonus. Seeing the transition from sketch to stage is pretty remarkable, but we couldn't help noticing an obvious difference between the final product and OG design of that epic "Bow Down" moto jacket. It seems Donatella may have originally wanted the back to read "Bitches Bow Down" but ultimately, a slightly more PG version ended up on the piece.
Kanye West on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers.'

Last night, Kanye West was a guest on the second episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, and, as usual, he talked about fashion. What was unusual, at least according to the internet, was the tone with which he spoke. It was soft, and his notoriously unwieldy comparisons were (mostly) in check, seeming to better illustrate his point. The thing is, though, that what he said last night is, bare bones, the same stuff he's been saying for months. All he did was lower his voice.
Lupita Nyong'o talks to 'Essence.'
You know how sometimes you just get so sick of your hair that you threaten to chop it all off? (Personally, I feel that way every summer. Subway neck sweat is NOT cute.) Well, Lupita Nyong'o, whose close-cut 'do has been the envy of everyone, waited almost two decades before indulging that urge. In a behind-the-scenes video from her forthcoming photo shoot with Essence, Nyong'o admits that the motivation behind her now-famous look was, in short (heh), laziness.
"I didn't always wear my hair short," she says. "In my adolescence, I always had long hair and it was relaxed. As of the age of 19, I just got really fed up with always going to the salon and it taking so much effort to look presentable before you leave the house. So, I just one day decided to cut it off, and I cut it all off! I was a skinhead and my mother was unamused," she says with a smirk and a giggle befit for her teenage self.
