When we last saw Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX performing their smash hit “Fancy” they had ditched their Clueless-themed outfits for mod ones. Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the pair tried out yet another look when they delivered the song. We got to see Iggy’s Scarface-inspired tour wardrobe up close—the singer wore a brand new black-and-white romper featuring a sketch of an iconic image from the movie. Iggy kept her beauty look low-key with a red lip, as did her partner Charli XCX.

Since he first rolled out merchandise for his record label and blog October’s Very Own, Drake has been rapidly expanding the webstore’s offerings, rolling out more fashion-y merch on the regular. Good news: Drizzy's just refreshed the stock again to include an OVO-emblazoned assortment of hoodies, snapbacks, and tees that were previously only sold on tour.
If you paid attention to Drake’s wardrobe during last year’s Would You Like A Tour?—not including the custom clothes created by Calvin Klein—you may have noticed a black T-shirt with a very Beauty and the Beast-esque rose on it. And if you thought to yourself, “I wish I had one,” you’re in luck, because it’s finally up for grabs.
One of Nicki's wigs?

There was a a joyous time in our lives when Rihanna changed her hair practically every day. There was even a time when we wondered if she got a hair cut in between fashion shows at Paris Fashion Week. It's been a while, though, since she's changed hair color. She's had it black since last summer, but it looks like summer 2014 is going to be full of colorful hair, thanks to Nicki Minaj. Last night RiRi attended game six of the NBA playoffs in a pink pixie wig.
She debuted the looks on Twitter, which just, TBH, isn't the same as Instagram. Sure, we still got a preview of what Rihanna was wearing before the rest of her non-followers, but it was just different. There was no filter. No caption that made me LOL for days. Bring your Instagram back, Rihanna, I beg of you. Please.

So Nicki Minaj just posted a series of selfies on Instagram, where she looks fresh-faced and all natural on set with the abbrev "WYD"? What we doing, Nicki? Well, we been speculating. Our girl has been rocking the red carpet circuit with a succession of looks that are subtle, chic, and sophisticated. Instead of the cartoonish couture of yesteryear, Minaj has been wearing her natural hair instead of wigs and toned down makeup. This might be a response to her becoming a bonafide mainstream movie star, or maybe reflecting a profound sense of maturity that comes with the sense of her junior release, currently titled The Pink Print. Nicki's returning back to her hip-hop roots both musically and visually, and if her "Lookin' Ass" video is anything to go by, this might be a continuation of that.
What this low-key look is for, we still don't know. Minaj revealed in the caption of one of the photos that she's shooting a video, but that's it. That's it and we need more. I wish she'd just give me the deetz and, more important, drop a new video into my life. But if that can't happen, maybe she'd tell me where she got those clear-heeled wedges she posted two days so I can cop a pair for myself. Those are most certainly not low-key.

Since her post-twerking rise, Miley Cyrus has become the queen of unexpected outfit changes. Just on her Bangerz Tour alone, Milez is working with some massive suitcases containing outfits from nearly a dozen different designers. And she just added more for the European leg. But as far as her makeup goes, that’s been the one consistent piece of her look—until last night.
Over the past few days, Miley has been Instagramming her new bedazzled “dirty hippie” face-paint look with hot pink stripes and rhinestones. At first we thought it was just a celebratory look for her mom's birthday, like the seemingly endless supply of hats and masks she has with her on tour, but last night Miley performed wearing her new makeup. If Miley were at Coachella, she’d blend right in. But considering the festival is a month behind us, we’re guessing another influence is at work here.
It's a big fat misconception that famous people get everything for free. I mean, sure, they're not paying for those fancy dresses you see them wearing on the red carpet, and they're not exactly forking over cold hard cash for the million-dollar very-rare luxury purses on their arms, but it's not like they can walk into a store and walk out with a whole new wardrobe because they have an official membership card to, like, HOLLYWOOD.
Being a famous person–especially a blinged-out one–can get pretty expensive. Or so we hear. Perhaps our desire to be part of the #LUXELIFE is why we're so appreciative of this new Instagram acouunt that calls out celebrities wearing fake watches. I mean, you can't help feeling a little smug knowing that even Rick Ross wears knockoff watches. After scanning the account for a few minutes, you may even feel bad for Rozay, because, y'know, you can't help feeling really guilty about knowing his secret. It's a lot of feels.
What season is it? It doesn't matter!

In this day and age, it is very easy to check the weather. There are myriad options, from Weather Puppy, an app that provides a picture of a puppy along with the temperature, to your run-of-the-mill Weather Channel app. If you're old-fashioned, you can look out the window. If you're famous, you can ask your assistant/hair stylist/makeup artist/chef/millions of Twitter followers what it's like outside. Considering all the constantly updated weather information out there, I am baffled by the outfit Lady Gaga wore yesterday. TRULY BAFFLED.
Obviously, it's not out of the ordinary for Lady Gaga to wear an, um, unusual outfit. We've seen her carry a claw, wear white powder all over her body, and dress in an outfit made from coffee filters. We've even seen her wear another iteration of this plaid shirt/no pants outfit before (a few times, actually). My issue, however, is not with her lack of pants, but with the fact that she wore tights on a day that it was 75 degrees in New York. Tights weather is officially over, Gaga—embrace it!
Sad Kanye, anyone?

Kanye West has had his fair share of memes from “Imma let you finish…” to the GIF parade that is the “Bound 2” video, but the latest—#sadkanye—might be the best yet. The picture, for those of you have been MIA from the internet for the past two weeks, was taken at a zip-lining site and features Kim Kardashian smiling next to a random dude as Kanye sulks in the background. If a picture is worth a thousand words, #sadkanye is worth a thousand memes. His image has been Photoshopped into every imaginable scenario: The Beatles’ Abbey Road cover, scenes from Forrest Gump, The Lion King, and more. We've looked at 'em all.
A meme is only truly a meme, though, when the guys at M.O.C embroider it onto a shirt. That day has finally come and M.O.C has put forth a collection dedicated to sad Kanye. The meme has now joined the ranks of Pharrell's hat, Drake’s dad lean, Miley’s unforgettable VMAs twerk, and Jay Z’s awkward dive. It’s actually Kanye’s second appearance on the brand’s clothing—his first being the shrug he gave when he stormed Taylor Swift’s 2009 VMA speech.
