Katy Perry has played all of the biggest stages in the world, has performed for the President, and a whole host of other things that would make us quake in our boots with terror, but we'd be willing to wager that she still gets a touch butterflies before a REALLY big show. OK so maybe she has her game face down pat (there wasn't a hint of stage fright in her pre-show ritual as shown in her Part Of Me doc), but singing a duet with the Rolling Stones? If Katy didn't get a little nervous, she might just be a robot. The singer joined Mick and Keith on stage at their Las Vegas tour stop, and brought that rock star somethin' somethin' in an all-leather bustier and mini skirt combo. Holding her own singing the Stones' classic "Beast Of Burden," Katy's down-to-there sweetheart neckline bustier, with thick ties up the front, and a bright print on the skirt, was classic KP, with a definite old school rock twist.
Welp, summer can officially begin, y'all! Rihanna is on the cusp of releasing her second River Island collection, and, thanks to a behind-the-scenes video the London high-street brand released today, we were Rihminded (heh) of just how much we need to get our hands on her warm-weather ready, '90s-inspired pieces. Back in February at London Fashion Week, Rihanna actually ALREADY revealed part of her summer line (remember those killer sheer floral tops and tie-dye skater skirts? Yep, that was it!), but on Saturday, May 25, all her breezy new pieces will be available to purchase in stores and on RiverIsland.com.
Demi Lovato lets her hair down for her Wango Tango performance.

We know Demi Lovato is a master of switching up her beauty look. One day she could be feeling a bold brow and brunette top knot, the next day, she's makeup-less with new shoulder-length hair. Welp, the recently blonde Demi is at it again, this time confining her beauty acrobatics to ONE NIGHT: Saturday's Wango Tango concert in Los Angeles! Demi started her night at the SoCal summer music kick-off with a sweepy, sophisticated updo on the red carpet. It perfectly showcased her pristine, porcelain skin and that KILLER smoky eye situation. But when D hit the stage later in the night, she opted for a different hairstyle than the one she arrived with.
Hayley Williams at the Radio 104.5 Birthday Show this weekend.

Anyone who's seen her all-orange MAC makeup collab already knows that Hayley Williams is a TOTAL daredevil when it comes to her onstage performance makeup. If you ask us, the flame-haired singer is one of the few people in the world who can rock bright coral eyeshadow and tangerine lipstick—together!—and not look like she got ready in the dark. In fact, she manages to look, well, unexpectedly awesome?! But leave it to the Paramore frontwoman to push the beauty boundaries yet again this weekend, swapping classic makeup go-tos like winged eyeliner for smudgy paint splashed all over her face and arms. During Paramore's epic performance at Radio 104.5's birthday show in New Jersey, it's honestly hard to tell which was more attention-grabbing: the band's high-flying rendition of "Misery Business," or Hayley's bright blue face paint across her eyes. Who knows, she might be taking cues from previous face paint offenders like Lady Gaga or Ke$ha or even classic icons like David Bowie, but Hayley's clearly owning the look herself.
There's no denying that Rihanna is #CCcertified. Whether she's dripping in Chanel chains or wearing Karl Lagerfeld's face on her t-shirt, Robyn Fenty is an undeniable master of the double C's. Let's focus on that t-shirt for a second. Just last week, Ri popped up on Instagram wearing a watercolored white tee with her boy Karl's portrait painted on it, rocking the caption "I'm so #CCcertified u aint een know it!!" She paired the tee with a pair of cut off, frayed denim shorts; a black blazer; the aforementioned chains; Wayfarers and her signature bright red lip. Basically the look was perfect in its simplicity, while still being luxe and young and just a little silly. Is this yet another example of the ungettable amazingness that is Badgalriri's life? Or, could this be a rare example of one of Ri's looks that we could actually snag for ourselves? Turns out, although we can't find Ri's exact t-shirt (it was probably custom made for her by Karl himself, or something), there are plenty of options out there if you want to wear a Karl Lagerfeld tee yourself!
How many times have you looked back at Solange's SXSW outfits or Katy Perry's two-piece KCA steez and thought, "MAN, I really want to try the matchy smatchy top and bottom look, but have NO idea where to get that in my price range?" Welp, for a while, you were totally right. It was a style reserved for phresh-out-the-runway boutiques and a completely different tax bracket, but never fear, fellow non-celebs, we have located the look WITHIN our price range. Some retailers like Topshop and River Island make it easy with dedicated co-ordinates shopping sections, but other places require a little more digging to uncover a full set. Luckily for you, we did the dirty work already and organized our findings neatly by category, and we're pretty sure we've found a printed co-ordinates set for every steez. Check it out!
CROP TOPS + SKIRTS
Get warm weather-ready in matching pairs.

Have any dresses with cut-outs or sheer panels at the waist? These crop top + skirt pairings are basically the same thing but taken to the next level. A short top worn with a skirt so high-waisted only a subtle sliver of skin shows through. They work in sleeveless + bodycon combinations like this Tomorrow Land Crop Tank ($48.00) and Skirt ($55.00) pair from Nasty Gal or in short-sleeved + skater skirt looks like this polka-dotted top ($32.00) and bottom ($36.00) from River Island or this floral shirt ($54.30) and skirt ($67.88) by Minkpink from ASOS.

• The belly ring debate forges on as Britney Spears joins Beyonce with belly bling on the cover of Shape.

Miley Cyrus and Willow Smith sport the same striped jumpsuit!

Honestly, we really hate pitting two people we love oh-so-much against each other, but when we noticed that Miley Cyrus and Willow Smith wore the EXACT same striped Chanel jumpsuit, we just had to talk about it. You might remember Miley sporting the black and white number back in March paired with a gold choker necklace, stacked bracelets, bright red lipstick, studded earrings and her signature blonde strands, but just yesterday, Willow stepped out wearing a similar get-up—complete with a new platinum 'do!
Rita Ora & Cara Delevingne: besties together for Hunger TV.

We're super jealous of Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora. They're glamorous, gorgeous, hilarious, AND BEST FRIENDS. Seriously, what could be better that having an awesome, amazing life AND getting to share in all the fun stuff with your bestie? Charmed. Lucky for us, we get to revel in their awesomeness thanks to Hunger TV. The two have been teasing their Hunger collab since January, when Rita tweeted an image from what we assumed was a photoshoot, but it now appears that we might be getting a video from these two ladies next week! If that's not exciting enough, Rita released a new video for her song "Facemelt" via Hunger TV today, and, let's just say it lives up to its name, especially in the fashion department. Rita gives some major couture vibes in the video, decked out in a sheer bustier, Chanel-channeling jacket, and to-die-for accessories.
Ke$ha behind the scenes during her 'Crazy Kids' music video shoot.

Hold. The. Phone. Ke$ha has been killin' it as of late, and we NEED to discuss. Every week we're lucky enough to peep the pop singer's tour ensembles on My Crazy Beautiful Life, but we ALSO get a daily dose of all her behind-the-scenes haps thanks to her Instagram. Yesterday, K-Money posted insane pics of (what looks like) the filming of her latest music video for "Crazy Kids," and when we saw the cover art for this single nearly a month ago, we knew her look was going veer away from her typical '70s rock 'n roll steez. Welp, we were right—almost TOO right. Ke$ha is barely recognizable in her new, decked-out 'do!
