Good news, everyone: Katy Perry's new hair goes well with fancy dresses. While we were initially wondering, like, "What goes with green hair?," Katy has proven that she can make at least two different looks #WERK. Last night, she attended an event in a floral print Suno dress. Her hair (and the midriff cutout) gave an otherwise straightforward look some ~swag~. Noted: florals, dresses, and slices of stomach look good with green hair. But that's not all!!
Ellie Goulding for 'Cosmopolitan.'

It's no secret that Ellie Goulding's style is on point. As a quick scroll through her frequently updated Instagram will tell you, the singer's fashion sense is the perfect combination of leather pieces, streetwear, and, like, totally elegant gowns. Her performance outfits often pair shorts and crop tops, but she looks equally as comfortable in a floor-length number at more formal events. Cosmopolitan's spread featuring Ellie totally nails her natural tough-yet-feminine vibe and puts her in pieces we can totally see her wearing IRL.
This peach Gucci dress, for example, shows off some cleavage and leg, and has black accents. It goes perfectly with her always expertly mussed hair—what doesn't, though?—and would be perfect for, IDK, something like the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Oh, yeah, she's performing at the awards on Sunday. Will she wear one of these dresses? She totally should, IMHO!
Hi. I'm Annamarie Tendler, and I love eyelashes. Well, let me be clearer, I love glamorous eyelashes—like Audrey Hepburn's, or Sophia Loren's, or Kim Kardashian's. My own lashes are very straight however, so to get remotely close to having the lashes of my dreams I require an eyelash curler, false lashes, and oh, like, 10 coats of the darkest mascara I can find. When I was in my teens and early 20s I was down to partake in this over-the-top beauty regimen almost daily, but now that I'm fast approaching 29 (someone explain to me how this happened) I'm simply too busy to go through all these steps just for thicker lashes. I am also very lazy.
Imagine my overwhelming glee when a friend told me about eyelash extensions. "So, you're telling me," I said, "for a couple hundred dollars I can go have some lady glue false, silk lashes onto my own lashes, and it will look completely natural AND last for months?!"
"Yes," she said. "That's literally what I just said to you."
In case you missed the news: Rihanna and Eminem are performing at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. Yep, in five days the duo will perform "The Monster" for the first time live ever. (EVER!!!) Sunday will mark the first time they've been reunited on stage in three years, but it definitely won't be the first time Em and Rih have performed together—in 2010 and 2011 they performed "Love the Way You Lie" a handful of times at various tour dates and awards shows, including the 2010 VMAs. *hair flip*
In honor of their performance (and to make the time between now and Sunday as Rihanna and Eminem-filled as possible), we figured we'd take a look back at their past performance style. Leggo!
2010 LAST GIRL ON EARTH TOUR

One of the first times they sang together live was at Rihanna's 2010 Last Girl on Earth tour, where Rih had her short red 'do and wore a one-shoulder jumpsuit made from, essentially, straps. Maybe she'll break it out for the Movie Awards? We wouldn't mind seeing that shoulder cage again, TBH.

Later that summer, they teamed up at the 2010 VMAs, with Em in head-to-toe black with a white tee and Rih in a Madonna "Like A Virgin"-inspired tulle skirt and bra. Rih's red hair was longer, and she accessorized with a Jennifer Behr crystal headwrap. It's one of her best looks, IMHO.
Beyonce on the cover of 'Out.'

Ring the alarm. Beyonce is not only topless on her first magazine cover of 2014, Out, she’s also platinum with a bob à la Marilyn Monroe. We’ve seen a lot of different Beyonces over the years—case in point: We saw 17 of them just over the course of her visual album—but this is an entirely new look for Queen B.

Inside the magazine, we get a look at Beyonce’s revealing cover outfit: just two body chains and two tiny necklaces. But then again, those necklaces likely cost more than our clothes budget for the year, so you do you, Bey. Since she was in the midst of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour during the shoot, she was probably pressed for time and needed quick outfits to wear. (I mean, she didn’t even have enough time to sit down with the writer for a face-to-face interview—they emailed.) To be fair, though, Bey does make a great case for an all-white suit when she pops up in a beaded eyelet tuxedo in another shot.
Slime green for spring, duh.

Let it be known that the first week of April 2014 was the week everyone dyed their hair, or at least pretended to (we're looking at you, Lauren Conrad). Katy Perry debuted her "slime green for spring" 'do on Instagram, after mentioning last week that she was excited about the color. While the color, at least on Instagram, doesn't appear to be as bright as the green slime that gets dumped on celebrities' heads at Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards, that's probably a hard color to achieve on hair. Also, who knows, maybe she used Walden as a filter (it's not very vibrant).

In case you missed the news: The Goonies is coming back. Director Richard Donner seemingly confirmed the news over the weekend to TMZ and is even in ongoing discussions with the original cast to return. Inspired by this news, Chunk's love of Hawaiian shirts, and one of spring's biggest trends, we sought out the season's finest florals. They're everywhere—from shoes to hats and everything in between. We collected a few of our faves and rounded them up for your consideration/enjoyment/shopping needs, etc. Check 'em out below, and if you introduce the flowery print to your wardrobe, be sure to do the Truffle Shuffle whenever you can.

This maxi dress from Nasty Gal features a subtle floral print. The colors are muted, but the oversized flowers speak for themselves—spring is here.

This American Eagle skirt combines the colors and print size of a typical Hawaiian shirt, but features it on a skirt and against a black background, making it automatically more wearable. The best part? It's on sale for under $25!
Are Kanye's new shoes dropping in June?

If you were awake for, like, half of last year, you’ll know that Kanye West has a lot of grievances with the fashion industry. Ye’s been airing out his issues for quite some time on the Yeezus tour, radio interviews, television, Twitter—you name it, he's covered it. Well, those fashion monologues eventually led to Kanye breaking off his relationship with Nike, who was at the center of much of his wrath after they kept pushing back the release date of the hotly anticipated Red Octobers (which surprise-dropped in February), and Adidas swooped in, offering Kanye a reported $10-million contract and the chance to design his own line for the sports brand.
Today in Germany, where Adidas is based, Kanye hosted a pep rally of sorts for the company, performing, monologuing, and revealing that—get excited—there’s a new Yeezy coming in June (whether that means we'll be able to get our hands on them then or if that's the timing of our first look is still unclear). Rather than the fired-up tone of his so-called "rants," Ye leaned more toward motivational speaker for this appearance. In his presentation, he shared on everything from sketching shoes in the fourth grade to how ranting is his oxygen and how he just wants to make “usable art.” Here are the best Yeezy-isms from his Adidas presentation.
