The rumors were true! Mariah Carey did release a holiday nail polish collection with OPI and it contains 18 different polishes! The collection is heavy on red—it is for holiday, after all—but there are whites, blues, and grays included, too. Mimi has got you covered on all your holiday nail needs. Use a different polish for each party you attend and you'll still have many a color left to use for all your non-party days.

SCURRT! That would be the sound of breaks grinding to a halt, which was heard both inside AND outside our NYC office, as we caught wind that A$AP Rocky, Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn were shooting brand new ads for DKNY in the middle of Times Square yesterday. So much for those rumors about Rita Ora replacing her BFF, Cara, in the designer’s taxi cab campaigns, eh? Looks like there’s room for more than one pretty face in the DKNY family, which is really great news because we’d hate to see #FASHUN tear anyone apart.

By now, you’ve had plenty of time to gawk at Lauren Conrad’s #1 STUNNA engagement ring. BUT WHAT ABOUT HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN? Come on, Lauren! Give us the deets! It's just us, your old pals at MTV. We've been besties since, like, 2004! Remember? Spill it. Were there rose petals? Puppies? Ribbons and polka dots and tiny pastel macarons? Did you have a secret Pinterest board entitled "Engagement Ideas" for William Tell to refer to? I bet there were macarons.
The single-set, circle-cut ring is TOTALLY true to the former MTV star's style—classic, simple, impossibly glam—and it will undoubtedly be the perfect accessory for any dress she chooses to walk down the aisle in (and also for just like, sitting on the couch and staring at in pajamas.) And since we HAVE known Conrad since 2004 (you've come a long way from flip-flops and tube-tops, lady), we obvi had to offer up some suggestions for dresses on the big day. You know, since we're really busy and couldn't be there in person to help out, even if she decided to ask us instead of say, IDK, her in-the-flesh family.

Selena Gomez: she's just like us! She dated Justin Bieber, is on a 56-date "Stars Dance" tour, hangs out with Donatella Versace, and oh, NBD, wears Forever 21 on the regular. The last one really is like us. The others are not (yet).
Selly is back in the U.S. on tour and, as usual, posting pics from her meet and greets on Instagram. Onstage, she's wearing the tour outfits she talked with us about (and helped design!), but offstage, she's really into cheap threads. Sels posted a pic with two young fans wherein she's wearing a striped, sheer shirt from Forever 21 (P.S. it's only $15.80)! She skipped the faux-leather bustier that Forever 21 paired with the shirt, opting instead for just a black bra. Seems like dressing in solids is making its way from stage to real life for Selena: black on black on black.
OK we get it, you guys are BFFs.

Hold the phone. Did Rita Ora nab a Chanel campaign?! All signs on the singer’s Instagram point to probably. Either that, or running around Paris at midnight in head-to-toe Chanel is Karl Lagerfeld’s idea of a girls’ night out. Wait. IS that Karl Lagerfeld's idea of a girls' night out? Honestly, IDK exactly what is happening in these photos, but I do know that I want to go there.
Ora posted a TON of snaps from a midnight photoshoot in Paris this weekend, and regardless of what is actually happening, I think we're all pretty much dying to see what kind of lux friendship bracelets she and Uncle Karl have—because they are clearly BFFs now. “Taking a midnight stroll with the man who inspires me to be glamorous at all times without a hint of doubt. Love you uncle Karl," Ora captioned a particularly cozy photo. Move over, Cara. Oh, wait. There’s room for you, too, under this scaffolding. *wipes brow*
Ke$ha on the 'Timber' music video set.

It's been a hot minute since we were treated to a new music video from Ke$ha. "Crazy Kids" with all its cornrows and bling was released in May, so, um, hi, that's 5 months without any new Ke$ha for us to feast our eyes upon. Sure, we watched the "My Crazy Beautiful Life" trailer 100 times, but we want more! Well, good news, Animals/humans: a "Timber" video is on its way!
"Timber," which is actually a Pitbull track featuring Ke$ha, was released last week and now, K-Dollar-Sign has headed into the woods wearing v. little clothing to shoot the video. Ke$ha gave us a sneak peek of the video, or at least its location and her wardrobe, on Instagram over the weekend, so it shouldn't be long before it's in our lives.
Katy Perry performs 'Roar' and 'Walking On Air' on Saturday Night Live.

ICYMI, Katy Perry was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and she put on a SHOW, you guys. The pop star sang two songs off her upcoming album, Prism (which rolls out on October 22nd), and per uzhe, she did not shy away from onstage theatrics. Many musicians tend to use the studio’s compact performance space as an opportunity to strip down their typical set and get back to basics—but let’s be honest: there’s nothing “basic” about the woman who brought us a boxing ring under the Brooklyn Bridge.

It was a big weekend for Lauren Conrad, y'all: she got engaged! Lauren shared the good news (where else?) on Instagram and on her personal blog. In my day you had to share your engagement via carrier pigeon (JK, it was via fax machine). Now? Snap a pic of your new jewelry, sit back, and watch the likes roll in. Everyone likes an engagement!
