Glammed up Ke$ha on 'My Crazy Beautiful Life.'
When you hear the name "Ke$ha," there are a few words that immediately come to mind: "glitter," "penis jewelry," and, as of late, "brightly colored hair" are among them. "Glam," is typically not. We've grown so accustomed to seeing Ke$ha in her sparkling leotards and Solo cup bras that when she put on a dress for her cousin's surprise engagement, we had to rewind the fourth episode of My Crazy Beautiful Life to make sure we weren't seeing things.
OK, Lady Gaga. We get it. You have infinite outfits. And wigs. You have ALL the outfits and ALL the wigs. Earlier today, Mother Monster added yet another element to her ARTPOP promo takeover with the debut of a short film that basically has her changing clothes every 3 seconds. Set to the tune of her album's title track, An ARTPOP Film was directed by Inez and Vinoodh, who are also responsible for several of Gaga's earlier ARTPOP shoots including: the video for "Applause," the "DOPE" single art and editorials for V Magazine (the one where she's naked) and Attitude Magazine (the one with the dreadlocks).
And in true ARTPOP fashion, we have no idea what she's getting at with this new short film. So, rather than trying to feign artsy insight, we just decided to dog pile all of the outfits for you to gawk at instead.

There she is.

The first of a few outfits we've seen before: Gaga covered herself in dirt and moss for the art accompanying the announcement of her single with R. Kelly, "Do What U Want."
Celebrities being friends with other celebrities is nothing new. Look at Rihanna and Katy Perry. Or Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora. Or Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. Or Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow. BFF matches made in star-studded heaven. Welp, it may be time to officially add another set of famous friends to that list: Kanye West and Anna Wintour. It seems their relationship is more than that one dinner date Ye keeps rapping about or that infamous baby name consult: Anna actually hauled her cookies (and Grace Coddington) to Brooklyn for the first New York stop of the Yeezus tour. We know very little about the fashion event outside of some blurry Instagram photos, which makes it PERFECT material for—you guessed it—the latest installment of Fashion Fanfic.
"Anna, couldn't we have waited until Saturday when he comes to Madison Square Garden? It's so much closer to work and home than... Brooklyn," Grace said while idly staring out the window of their town car at the traffic surrounding the Barclays Center.
"Absolutely not," Anna replied tersely while pushing up her slinking over-sized sunglasses (even though it was almost 7 p.m. and, y'know, dark out). "This is his first solo tour show in New York in five years. This is a historical event, and we must be in attendance."
Demi Lovato showing off her ear cuff at the premiere of 'Frozen.'

Demi Lovato arrived at the premiere of Disney's new animated movie, Frozen, wearing one of the year's most popular trends: hair dyed to match the color on the movie's poster. JK, she was wearing an ear cuff! Tucked away under her messy blue bun, was a gold cuff that snaked up her ear and complemented the gold tassels that adorned her black Altuzarra dress. Demi joins Jennifer Lawrence and Cara Delevingne and a grip of other PYTs in the cuff club: these accessories have spread among models, actresses, and musicians and now deserve a major role in the lives of regular peeps (perfect holiday timing, TBH).
Justin Bieber for 'The Hollywood Reporter.'

Justin Bieber is NOT swaggy. And that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the 19-year-old pop star showed up for his interview with The Hollywood Reporter in a bright red onesie. Hey, a dude’s gotta be comfortable for a long, serious sit-down, right?
Despite the fact that some people (including Justin himself up until now) might argue that the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2013 plaid Doberman Pinscher sweatshirt he wears on the cover of the mag is the very definition of "swaggy" (see also: "awesome"), Bieber is no longer defining his look as such. “I'm very influenced by black culture, but I don't think of it as black or white," he says. "It's not me trying to act or pose in a certain way. It's a lifestyle—like a suaveness or a swag, per se. But I don't really like to say the word ['swag'] anymore. It's kind of played out." Welp, that settles it. R.I.P., swag.
Ke$ha’s jewelry collaboration, Kesha Rose by Charles Albert, has been on shelves for a few months now. Any Animal will tell you that it’s totally weird, which is both a compliment and a testament to Ke$ha’s ability to translate her ~unique~ style sensibilities to an entire line of accessories. The pieces are broken up into mini-collections and are stacked with stunning stones, spikes, blue roses (her signature symbol) and penises. Yup, penises. Big, small, on rings, earrings and a necklace, the cartoonish male genitalia is undoubtedly the most *achem* recognizable item in the bunch.

Holy smokes. Please look at this new video from the toy company GoldieBlox because it is EXCELLENT. Set to a remake of the Beastie Boys’ “Girls,” it features a Rube Goldberg machine (an overly-complicated contraption that relies on a sort of domino-effect to complete a simple task) that destroys tea sets, marabou feathers, dolls, a rolling pin, a see-saw, a badminton racket, and a parasol, delighting a crew of really frickin’ adorable girls. If you’re not familiar with the company, GoldieBlox was launched last year with help from a gobsmackingly successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $285,881; way over their $150,000 goal.
Founder and CEO Debbie Sterling, a Rhode Island native who studied engineering at Stanford, wanted to start a movement to “disrupt the pink aisle and inspire the future generation of female engineers,” attributing the discouraging lack of women in her profession to a dearth of maker-minded toys for girls. GoldieBlox features a book, a tool kit, and a construction set, with the book as a sort of Trojan Horse for girls who tend to be more verbally inclined (“boys like to build; girls like to read,” she says in her Kickstarter video).
Miley Cyrus, her bleached eyebrows, and Miranda Kerr.

Do you guys notice something a little ~off~ in this picture? Is it that Miley Cyrus is resting what are probably red lipsticked lips on Miranda Kerr's white cut-out shoulder dress? Maybe you're asking yourself, "Why are Miranda and Miley hanging out in the first place?" Or maybe, just maybe, it's because MILEY CYRUS HAS NO EYEBROWS. THEY ARE GONE. ADIOS. SAYONARA. GOOD DAY.
Miley posted her new look to Instagram early this morning and, like, are her eyebrows even there? Did she shave them off entirely? In the photo with Miranda, you can see the outline of what was once a brow (RIP). The black-and-white filter isn't helping distinguish what is there and what isn't (we're onto you, Miley), but if you tilt your screen to different angles and/or squint, you can make out some very bleached eyebrows. They're still there, guys, PHEW: they're just so light they blend in with her skin color.
Right on the heels of the release of Katy Perry's "Unconditionally" music video, Iggy Azaela sat down with the new COVERGIRL on MTV to talk about the vid, touring, songwriting, and what she would name a cat if it were presented to her (Kiggy, obviously). Both looked fabulous as always.
Iggy skewed very formal for your average interviewer, decked out in her much talked about 2013 EMA cut-out dress by Dilek Hanif, Cartier jewelry, and red Jimmy Choo shoes. Katy, on the other hand, wore a look that was totally different from her turquoise Zac Posen dress, her mirrored performance outfit, and her fishnet/Chanel post-show dress. She opted instead for a short, Peter Pan collar dress from Shibuya 109 in Tokyo, which she paired with black knee socks. (If you're keeping track, that brings her to a total of 4 outfits that night. *wipes sweat off upper lip*

Katy Perry really is growing up, y'all! In a stark contrast to her bubblegum Candyfornia image of yesteryear, KP has released the music video for "Unconditionally," the second official single off of her Prism album, and it's super mature and gorgeous (just like her!). Where the lyric video for the track was really stripped down and bare, the full-fledged music video is more about beautiful, rich imagery and symbolism which Katy revealed in her MTV First with Iggy Azalea was meant to express that abstract phenomenon of falling in love—and apparently unconditional love also comes with a swagged out closet of designer goods, so sign us up! We were fortunate enough to catch up with Katy's long-time trusted stylist Johnny Wujek to pick his brain about the ogle-worthy wardrobe and its inspiration.
