We already heard that The Blonds would be designing some of the outfits for Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz Tour, but, the "Wrecking Ball" singer just revealed they're not the only ones. Yep, Miles has recruited the likes of Jeremy Scott and Marc Jacobs to outfit her on tour. Being tight with designers certainly has its perks, eh?
Tonight's Critics' Choice Movie Awards forced Hollywood's elite to step out on the red carpet once again (the third time in just a little over a WEEK). It seems like we JUST picked apart the looks from the 2014 Golden Globes, but hey, that's the life of the rich, famous, and talented. (It's also what happens when the Winter Olympics forces much of awards season OUT of February.) The Critics' Choice attendees played it pretty safe overall, proving that awards shows are sometimes more about professionalism rather than just seeing and being seen. Still, there were a few envelope-pushing looks that we think are worth talking about. Take a look at our faves!

Can we just go ahead and crown Lupita Nyong'o the official red carpet darling of 2014 already? I know it's only January, but girl's track record is PRISTINE. If her gorgeous caped dress at the Golden Globes wasn't enough to convince you, just look at this white-hot number. We love all aspects of the crisp, clean Calvin Klein look from its athletic neckline to its geometric bodice cutouts, but don't sleep on her matching manicure, shimmering makeup, metallic clutch, or perfectly compatible Kimberly Macdonald jewelry either! Girl is FLAWLESS.
Beyonce + glitter explosions + a hair-flip to beat all hair-flips. No, that's not JUST the afternoon we're having, that's a very brief synopsis of a new video making the internet rounds. A new video which maaay be the first commercial for Bey's newest fragrance, Rise. As we sit here playing the 30-second clip on a constant loop, we can only wish and hope that the gilded promo is the real deal.
The commercial begins with a dramatic chord synched up with a slow-motion eye flicker. And then. We are graced with our first glitter explosion. While we can't be 100% sure, we're guessing this is what the creation of the universe (and/or Beyonce) must have looked like.
What do Mac Miller, Perez Hilton, Chris Benz, Billy Joe Armstrong, and Dennis Rodman all have in common? (And no, they're not all BFFs with North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un.) Give up? As of today, they've all decided to transform their tresses with a bold new hue: pink! And not, like, a soft baby pink either. We're talkin' BRIGHT.
Miller posted several pics of his makeover (man-over? male-over?) on Instagram today, starting with a shot of himself in a see-through shower cap. He doesn't ~appear~ to be in a salon, though, so we're guessing this was a spur-of-the-moment, DIY 'do—straight-up Manic Panic style. The photos that followed showed the 21-year-old rapper's daring shade in all of its eye-popping glory, and we have to say, we're digging it. Hard.
Beyonce in head-to-toe Versace.

If you haven't been keeping up with Beyonce's photo-posting marathon over the past few days, what have you been doing? There are 24 hours in a day. You can dedicate at least five of them to looking through every picture Bey shares. In case you have other things going on, we'll fill you in: Beyonce has been wearing a lot of Versace. Like, she probably should've been given a verse in Migos' "Versace" (under her rap alter ego, Third Ward Trill) because she would have a lot of material.
To hang out with Jay in an elevator, Bey wore a printed pink silk Versace shirt and a pair of leggings from the M.I.A.'s Versus Versace collab. While the shirt is sold out (it was a cool $638 anyway), the green-and-pink floral-print leggings are still available! You may not be able to wear Versace on Versace exactly like Bey, but you CAN put those bad boys on and pose in any elevator you can find.
Taylor Swift at the 2014 Golden Globes.

Once upon a time, Taylor Swift was the prettiest princess in all of Hollywood. Dancing teacups and singing birds followed her everywhere she went. JK. But at the beginning of her career, she did seem to follow the motto: The more tulle and sparkle, the better. "I never got to go to prom," Swift laments in a recent interview with Teen Vogue. "So when I was younger, I wore prom dresses on the red carpet or to awards shows."
Now, at the ripe old age of 24, T. Swizzle has graduated from her former style and developed a polished, more mature look that's all her own, but she still favors one of the same brands she loved as a child. "When I was a little kid, I had a pair of white Keds I wore everywhere," Taylor admits. "It was a nostalgic feeling when they asked me to be the inspiration for the collection. It's cool to be part of something with such a legacy."

If you've ever watched Girls, you've probably found yourself excitedly pointing at the television, screaming, "HEY, I HAVE THAT TOP! I THINK." And then you undoubtedly rewind, pause, and run to your closet to confirm. "OMG. I DO have that top." *turns to friend, significant other and/or entirety of viewing party* "Told you so." Not to burst your bubble or anything, but we'd guess a LOT of people have picked up some of the very same pieces that Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shosh wear on the show—because the characters shop at some of the very same places as us IRL folk. "They source the clothes and accessories from vintage shops, Urban Outfitters, Etsy, Beacon’s Closet, Bergdorfs, Salvation Army, Strawberry and, like, everywhere in between," The Coveteur dishes in a new, behind-the-scenes interview with Girls' costume designer, Jenn Rogien.
Lorde on the covering of 'Rolling Stone.'

In case you couldn't tell, this is Lorde on the cover of Rolling Stone. With Lorde's glorious mane covering five of the letters from the magazine's name, it could easily pass as "Roll One," which would be, like, a magazine about good bread or something, IDK. It's definitely Rolling Stone, though, because Lorde is very, very excited about it. She's given the announcement an all-caps tweet, so you know she's excited. She doesn't throw caps around frequently.
This isn't Lorde's first magazine cover, but it is the first of 2014 and also—hello—Rolling Stone is huge. The singer is, as usual, channeling "goth vibes" on the cover, with her dark plum lips and familiar all-black uniform.
Lily Allen on the set of her new video for "Air Balloon."

After a too-long hiatus (three years, to be exact), Lily Allen is back. From what I understand, she was busy doing things, like, having kids and getting married, or whatever. Basically, she's a certified adult now, but that doesn't mean she's lost her playful charm. Allen kicked off her comeback in November, with a new single AND a new video for "Hard Out Here," which featured a slew of dirty dancers on a soundstage, droppin' it like it's hot in barely-there outfits made of leather and mesh. According to a few pics Allen recently posted on Instagram, the location for her next video will be a bit more, um, scenic. (Don't worry, though. There will still be mesh. IRIDESCENT mesh.)

Is Alexander Wang's "Parental Advisory" shirt the most copied look from the Spring 2014 runway? It definitely seems like it. Since the runway show in September, both Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 have been accused of knocking off the logo that appeared everywhere in Wang's collection. Pixie Market has taken their imitation one step further, not only using the logo, but putting it on a white sweatshirt with mesh cut-outs. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I'd bet Alexander Wang is feeling pretty flattered right now.
While Pixie Market is not the first to, um, sell a familiar look (and certainly not the last), their version of this sweatshirt is about as close to the original that we've seen in recent memory.
