NikeiD's Customizable Liberty shoes.

Shhh, you hear that? It's your shoe closet BEGGING you to add more printed sneaks to your collection. OK, maybe that's not what's really happening here, but you don't need to tell anyone that! Consider it all the excuse neccessary to join us in obsesssing over NIKEiD's new Liberty London goods. The sneaker giant has teamed up with the U.K. heritage label yet again on a line of flower power shoes—and while we've already called them out for kicking it up (heh) on the technology front with their sneaker wedges, this collab marks a very personal twist. NIKEiD, the special section of the brand that allows you to customize the shoes, has added Liberty's pretty florals to its arsenal of patterns and colors.
At face-value, without any context, these floral cat ears really aren't that offensive. Who doesn't like flowers? Or animals? What harm did headbands ever do to anyone? It all seems innocent enough. Prim, sweet, feminine, whatever. But (for us anyway) there's something truly sinister that lies within this headband's ingredients. This is the ill-advised headgear lovechild of 2012's two landmark fashion phenomenons: flower crowns and cat ears. And THAT, the reckless combination of these two things into a separate genre of accessory, makes this floral ears headband the evil Frankenstein's monster of played out mega-trends. Also, our collective worst nightmare.
Rihanna performing in custom Riccardo Tisci on the Diamonds World Tour.
Last night, Maud and I had the pleasure of seeing Rihanna in Brooklyn for the New York stop on her sold-out Diamonds World Tour. Actually, the show was supposed to be on Saturday but there was some scheduling kerfuffle involving The Nets and that's pretty much where my knowledge and interests end because I know ZERO about all sports outside of competitive eating. Anyway, as you know, we've been covering the DWT extensively, as well as the incredible performance outfits dreamt up by her genius styling team Adam Selman and Mel Ottenberg, so here are our collective thoughts on Rihanna's DWT togs IRL. Warning: be prepared for a DEPRESSING amount of envy given the all-custom-everything nature of the clothes that are displayed on the borg-perfect body of a bajillionaire.
The unicorn onesie Miley Cyrus wore in her twerk video has landed at Topshop.

IDK if you've noticed, but onesies are majorly trending. From Rihanna to Justin Bieber, Cara Delevingne to Ke$ha, a handful of our favorite celebs have been repping the total-body togs with reckless abandon for quite a while now. One of the most emphatic of these celeb onesie-wearers, though, is Miley Cyrus who catapulted this unicorn onesie to its own level of autonomous stardom when she wore it for a twerk video set to J Dash and Flo Rida's "WOP." That was all way back in March, but the hooded animal jumpsuit is relevant again thanks to Topshop!
I picked out these outfits, NBD.
First off, I need to give it up to Complex for discovering the incredible amazingness that IS the Dress Up! Drake iPhone app. Thanks to their killer sleuthing skills, I unearthed a whole PLETHORA of celeb dress-up goodness that has (apparently) existed since 2012. You can style everyone from Joe Jonas to One Direction to Adele in tops, bottoms, shoes, accessories, and—if you're lucky!—hair. But the best part about these Happy Girl Dress Up! apps is that they're all free—the only catch being to get the premium outfits (a.k.a. the way, WAY better ones) you have have to pay more. *high-fives entire world* I had to take a couple of these bad boys for a spin, so I obviously downloaded Joe's app first (sorry world, he's my ~one~).

AHHH, IT'S HERE! Selena Gomez's InStyle magazine cover has finally arrived! Hot on the heels of Selly's own "Come & Get It" music video release just last night, InStyle has revealed that Miss Gomez is their June 2013 cover girl. Beaming in a black, navy, and cobalt strapless jumpsuit by Stella McCartney, Selena fronts the summer issue looking warm-weather appropriate but also chic and sophisticated. Jewel tone Fendi bangles provide the color palette for the mag's cover lines, but the candy-colored summer FASHUN does not stop there!
Carey Mulligan in Flaunt.

We're seriously running out of words to describe the opulent, flawless style Carey Mulligan has been rocking lately to promote her equally-extravagant new film The Great Gatsby, but the actress' brand new spread in Flaunt Magazine—while still lavish—lacks any hint of the film's roaring '20s vibe. We love yuh, Gatsby, and we DEFINITELY LOVE Catherine Martin's costumes, but this is a welcome change. Carey poses in The Fabrication Issue in a variety of looks ranging from elegant and simple to artful and directional. Our favorite part of her look? Mulligan sports a severe, hard-edged bob with baby bangs that look veritably sculpted to her head. This fashion-friendly take on helmet hair is nothing like the more unfortunate looks at elementary school picture day. Trust. In our favorite ensemble from the shoot, Carey looks almost Victorian in an ultra-structured white gown with roses blooming from the neckline and an enormous bejeweled choker that resembles the branches of a gnarled old tree. Her makeup is understated and even mutes her features somewhat, with super light eyebrows and pale lips washing her out, but not completely.
A still from Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It" music video.

There you have it, Selenators! You've had your first look at Selena Gomez's brand new "Come & Get It" music video courtesy of MTV First. The nearly five minute-long clip features Selly sprawled in open pastures, wading face-deep in blue lagoons, and serving excellent face with Bollywood-inspired choreography (no bindis this time, though). While not the staggering seven-outfit "Hit The Lights" fashion parade of her The Scene era, the ensembles in this video are definite looks and 100% warrant a closer look. Let's go!
Thanks to a jam-packed schedule of performances, it's been a minute since we've seen Diplo's handsome mug fronting a fashion campaign. And sure, we might still be swooning over last year's Alexander Wang ad; but not going to lie, we've been missing the producer/DJ/all around multi-hyphenate from our lives (and uh, bedroom walls?) recently. However, now we can ALL breathe easy, because thanks to the good people over at Moss clothing, Wesley Pentz is back in front of the camera! Joined by his bud, Major Lazer's Jillionaire, leave it to Diplo to make anyone (even us girls) want to nab the New York label's latest collection of printed hats, shirts, and shorts for ourselves immediately. Yep, summer's about to get even sweeter.
