Quick: what's the one accessory you just cannot travel without? Your favorite necklace? A scarf to use as a pillow on the plane? A black claw with long nails? For Lady Gaga, it's option number 3. With just a few weeks til ARTPOP drops, Gaga headed to Berlin carrying, as we all do (JK), a claw. Is Gagaloo getting in the Halloween spirit? If so, we have some ideas as to how she could dress as herself. #META Is she going to start making the Little Monsters put their claws up instead of their paws? Did she carry the claw through the metal detector or have it x-rayed? Claw accessories and airport logistics raise many questions.
Lana Del Rey on the cover of the November issue of 'NYLON.'
After hearing nary a peep about Lana Del Rey for months, she's popped back into our lives big time in the past few days. First, of course, was her role in the Kimye engagement: Kanye hired a 50-piece orchestra to play her song, "Young and Beautiful" as the soundtrack to the proposal. Then, she crops up on NYLON's November cover with insanely shiny, deep auburn hair (it's not that far of a cry from her dark brown hair the last time we saw her, on the Tropico poster, but it's noticeably lighter). Where ya been, LDR? It doesn't really matter, TBH, we're just happy to have you back.
On the cover, Lana wears a Calvin Klein denim shirt, a black bustier from Nasty Gal, and a DKNY skirt. She may be laying low, but she can still bring it when it comes to magazine covers: she has, after all, had ample experience. Gone is her signature cat eye; in its place a some subtle pink eyeliner and mascara.
It's crunch time, y'all. Halloween is NEXT. WEEK. If you haven't figured out what your costume is going to be by now, chances are you're feeling a little uninspired. Your roommate already claimed Miley Cyrus or you missed the boat on that Lady Gaga group costume, and your friends aren't big enough Beliebers to get that Justin Bieber as Robin look. That's OK. We still haven't even touched on the wild and wonderful hotbed of Halloween costumes that is television. Since everyone and their mom is going use All Hallows' Eve to mourn the gaping hole left by the end of Breaking Bad, we're going to skip it because those DIYs (even "sexy" versions) already exist. Same goes for Game of Thrones and the already Halloween-ready zombies and witches of The Walking Dead and American Horror Story respectively. We're helping you out with the tougher, slightly more unorthodox costumes.
JA'MIE: PRIVATE SCHOOL GIRL

That's right. Ja'mie's back. Chris Lilley is bringing everyone's favorite Private School Girl back for a new series starring the "Ja'miezing" Miss King. The new show will hit HBO Sunday, November 24th at 10:30 p.m. EST, and you better believe we'll be watching—no offense, anything else that's on TV at that time. Bonus: since the premiere is after Halloween, you can recycle this outfit for a "no fugly skanks allowed" viewing party.
The happy, brooding couple.

Kimye’s impending nuptials: let’s discuss. Obviously, the entire event will be lavish, over-the-top and totally insane. (We can’t wait!) The two stars are both notoriously extravagant, and despite this being Kardashian’s third wedding (#charmed), y’all know that NO expense will be spared for Kanye’s first trip down the aisle. I mean, you saw the ring, right? I’m imagining like, diamond-encrusted everything—from place settings to port-a-pottys to the Lorraine Schwartz-sponsored gift bags and the mini Margiela mask for Nori. Their love knows no bounds and their wallets know no limits. Remember: these are the people who spent over a million dollars on beds. BEDS. Six of them. SIX. That s*** cray.
Also, keep in mind that Kim wore three different Vera Wang dresses (gratis, but valued at approx. $20K a piece) for her 2011 wedding to Kris Humphries, and DUH-RIPPED in an estimated $10 million worth of (borrowed) high-end jewelry. So, it’s probably pretty safe to assume that she’ll outdo herself with West because EVERYONE will be watching. But will Ye get final approval of the gown(s)?
Justin Bieber on set for his Adidas NEO photoshoot.

We've already seen the images for Justin Bieber's most recent Adidas NEO campaign, but now, thankfully, there's a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, so we can peep moving JB in all his dancing/drumming/pose-striking glory. There's also a lot of reclining, like in his fall campaign, because dancing using only your shoulders is tiring.
Rihanna wearing Rihanna X River Island.

It feels like just yesterday we first heard about Rihanna's final collection with River Island. Oh wait, LOL, it was yesterday. My bad. Hours after the announcement, Rih held an impromptu fashion show (every day is a fashion show for badgalriri, whether in Abu Dhabi or Greece) to debut some of the looks in the best way she knows how: modeling them herself.
In the behind-the-scenes video from yesterday, Rih promised the collection would be full o' florals and, based on this first look, she has definitely delivered. Despite being in Greece, where it's, like, 80 degrees, RiRi broke out a dark floral, velvet crop top and matching pants. I'm not sure a head-to-toe velvet look would work for everyone, but it, obviously, looks ah-may-zing on Rihanna. She looks ready to go to bed but also go to a party at the same time? A winning combo, IMHO. Each of these pieces could easily be dressed up or down this winter in freezing places like New York (velvet/turtleneck/long pants), or somewhere warmer like, IDK, Athens.
Katy Perry in the November issue of 'W.'

Va-va-VOOM! With Prism hot off the record presses, Katy Cats are getting a double-dose of their fearless queen today with a new series of photos from W magazine. Actually, seeing as how they snapped dual Katy Perry covers for the Special Edition “Global Style” issue, we’re really getting a ~triple~ dose of the provocative pop singer. Perry channels old-school screen-siren glamour on one cover, wearing a perforated white Chanel dress and Harry Winston diamond block earrings with a small stud diamond necklace (also by Winston). Oh, and her makeup? All COVERGIRL products for the brand's newest face, ‘natch. (Though, on the second cover, she wears Michael Kors and Revlon.)
AnnaSophia Robb as Carrie Bradshaw in season 2 of 'The Carrie Diaries.'

In case you haven't had it marked in your calendars for weeks like we have, The Carrie Diaries is back on Friday! We'll finally see how Carrie's summer in NYC went (spoiler alert: she ends up there as an adult), as well as how her job at Interview is going (spoiler alert: she ends up as a newspaper columnist). Seems like young Carrie has adult Carrie figured out prettttty well. In a new preview, we see that the gang is (largely) back together, Samantha makes her grand entrance, and Carrie is dealing with heartbreak. Boo Sebastian. Boo Maggie.
How is Carrie coping with her feelings? A new look, obviously! Carrie debuts a shorter and sleeker 'do in the preview and admits that the sting of defeat is made "easier by an awesome new look." We agree, CB, we totally agree. Carrie's fabulous '80s fashion is also back in full-force: there are a lot of prints (we see you, polka dot shirt and leopard print shorts), bodycon dresses, and overalls this season.
Kimye and the rock/ring.

WOWOWOW. I mean, WOW. Or, more succinctly, WOW. Baby momma, no more! OK technically, Kim Kardashian IS still the mother of Kanye West’s child, but now he’s making an honest woman out of her, y’all! *DING DONG DING* (Those are wedding bells, BTW.) In the proposal heard ‘round the
world interwebs, Ye popped the question last night on Kim’s 33rd birthday at San Francisco’s AT&T Park (he rented it out for the occasion, NBD) where he proposed IN ALL CAPS (because Kanye) on a jumbotron that read: “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” (EMPHASIS ON THE "E"S FOR MAXIMUM EXPRESSION OF EXCITEMENT!) Oh, and West soundtracked the event to the tune of a live 50-piece orchestra (head over to MTV News for the set list). Naturally, Kim said yes because LOOK AT THAT RING. (Also, because love.)
