If you're anything like us, you may be wishing it was Sunday instead of Friday. Sure, your weekend would be over, but you'd get to see these two beautiful angels of comedy on your television screen! In case you somehow missed the news (I really don't know how you could, TBH), Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting the Golden Globes again this year, and next year, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. In order to properly honor these two women (and to justify spending half of our work day watching Saturday Night Live skits from 2006), we decided to take a look at the fashion from some of their best SNL skits.
Join us, if you will, on a trip down memory lane. If you watch every video you can find, it'll be Sunday before you know it! Perfect weekend!
Snag this tee from Marc Jacobs!

On Tuesday, Miley Cyrus tweeted a photo of a marriage equality tee by her BFF/current employer, Marc Jacobs. Made in 2009, Miley was one of the few lucky ones who snagged the limited-edition shirt, which shows a blonde, same-sex couple in black dresses alongside their pixie-coifed kid. The bad news: That particular shirt sold out a LONG time ago. Jacobs only printed about 200 of them and a quick search on eBay yielded zero results. *sigh* The good news: We found a legitimate replica reprint with only one tiny difference.
After Beyonce surreptitiously dropped her new album in the middle of the night, she followed up by sneaking some new merch into her online store. Much like her album, there was no announcement, no indication anything new was coming, and then—BAM—a T-shirt and a sweatshirt that matched the album's cover. Brace yourselves: She just did it again with more new merch!
Now, alongside the swag that joined her on her Mrs. Carter Show world tour dates, are four new sweatshirts in the album's simple pink Sans Serif text plus black-background format. Bey showed off the designs at her album release party, but we had no idea they'd be available for purchase so soon. It's like our best friend (Beyonce, natch) just gave birth to quadruplets and we can't choose our fave! We
want need them all.

When word got out about Design With Purpose, Gwen Stefani's new clothing line with denim king Michael Glasser, we got excited. Not too excited, though, because if we've learned anything about celebrity collaborations, it's that they love to tease us with plenty of promo looong before the product drops (*ACHEM* Nicki Minaj for Kmart, The Key by Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga's ARTPOP). And that's fine—we're used to it. But now, just days after Gwen's initial announcement, we're already getting some behind-the-scenes photos of DWP's lookbook shoot AND a promise that more will be coming soon. All of this with a projected spring 2014 shelf date? Gwen, you're spoiling us! *blushes*
Considering we're in the throes of a polar vortex, looking at clothing for next autumn/winter may seem unappealing. We prefer shorts and bathing suits and clothing that makes us believe it will be warm again, not sweaters that make it seem like winter will last forever. Fashion doesn't adhere to our feelings though, and Fashion Week is starting up again, kicking off in London with men's collections. Though these clothes are technically for next fall, there are a few trends we found that we're not sure we'll be seeing at all. Ever.
DEMENTED MICKEY MOUSE

Weirdly enough, two different designers had models walk out with Mickey Mouse ears. "MICKEY IS HUGE FOR FALL 2014, TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW!"—people in the fashion world (or so I imagine). MAN attached Mickey's iconic ears to a baseball cap and accessorized it with something you'd likely find in a dentist's office/nightmares, while Kate Eary constructed a plastic Mickey mask, complete with a red mohawk. I'm pretty sure this would not fly on the subway.
Much like the government (according to the Gettysburg Address), the People's Choice Awards are of the people, by the people [and] for the people. They also officially kick off awards show season, aka that time of year when gawking at pretty dresses gets us through the cruel winter. From television and movie stars to daytime talk- and game-show hosts, all of Hollywood did one thing really well with their outfits at this year's PCAs: They reminded us that below-freezing temperatures didn't affect California. Oh, and also, that neutrals are trending. Wanna know who did it best? Check out our favorite looks from the 2014 People's Choice Awards below!
BRITNEY SPEARS IN MIKAEL D

Las Vegas looks good on Britney, y'all! The Princess of Pop took a break from her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood to make an appearance (and accept her first PCA!) in a Mikael D pre-Fall 2013 dress covered with silver rose appliqué detailing. Ms. Spears accessorized with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Kotur bag, and Broken English jewelry. Very fun, but also mature.
Dear Whoever Created This Louis C.K. One Tumblr,
You are my new favorite. I'd be comfortable leaving our correspondence at that, but since I'm also using this public platform to shoehorn you into my life as my new best friend, I should elaborate.
You are a genius. I'm not sure how this pun was never made until now, but somehow you beat everyone to it. For that, you deserve all the interwebs propers that bitcoins can buy.
Aside from the wordplay, you've combined three of my favorite things in this world—Louis C.K., Calvin Klein minimalism, and the '90s—into one masterpiece of a meme.
That didn't last very long. A mere month ago, a flaxen-haired Sky Ferreira was announced as the newest face of Redken and quickly opted to return to her brunette roots for the occasion. (Well, mostly. Her brunette eyebrows got the bleach treatment. #rolereversal) But now, according to some behind-the-scenes photos from photographer Eli Schmidt, Ferreira's hair will be back to its bleach blonde ways for her first official commercial. (Her eyebrows, however, are brown again. If you're getting confused, just imagine how her scalp feels.)
Rihanna showing off her makeup, done by her BFF Leandra.

When Rihanna debuted her gold tooth on Monday, we barely noticed the caption that read "Makeup by @leleboo_phucku." Sorry. We're magpies. *SHINYYY* As anyone who has taken a scroll through Rihanna's Instagram feed knows, @leleboo's real name is Leandra and she's one of Rih's BFFs (and her cousin, according to some sources). Last night, Leandra posted more pics of @badgalriri wearing heavy eye makeup, her own handiwork. So is Lee Rihanna's new go-to makeup artist? We investigate.
Based on a lengthy Instagram caption from a few days ago, it seems that Lee has started taking private makeup lessons from a guy named Renny Vasquez. She's posted many a photo of the makeup she's been working on for the past week, but after a mere three days of training, Lee got her first celebrity client: Rihanna! It happens so fast for some people. #blessed
