How much does Rihanna's necklace weigh, TBH?

It's no secret that Rihanna is all about #phreshofftherunway looks. She's also all about pieces that are #CCcertified AND has shown an affinity for oversized accessories in the past. Thus, a necklace that made its grand debut just last week at Chanel's Fall 2014 runway show is obviously an ideal accessory. Especially if it's a lock so big that it could secure a yacht.

Rihanna must've called dibs on the padlock necklace last week as she was making friends/posing for scrapbook photos during Paris Fashion Week, and Uncle Karl must've hooked her up. Between the gold bike chain and the size of the lock, Rih's neck must be exhausted. What kind of exercises are needed to prepare your neck for such a weighty accessory? Is this called a LOCKet? I have a lot of questions.

When Lorde hit the stage at this year's Grammy Awards, instead of grabbing our attention with a glittery thong or an elaborate set, the 17-year-old New Zealand export appealed to our digital tastes with her dark, dripping, dip-dyed finger art. We'd spotted similar styles on Michele Lamy, the eclectic wife, muse, and creative mind behind Rick Owens, and at Mara Hoffman's F/W 2011 presentation, but now it seems like this alternative form of nail art is turning into a full-blown trend.

It's only the second day of New York Fashion Week, but we've already caught painted fingers on the runways of designers like Creatures of Comfort and Adam Selman. CofC mirrored Lorde's Grammy nails by bronzing their models' fingers from tip to joint. Selman went with a cleaner, more graphic style, adding tattooed black bands on all five fingers, like a string of permanent midi-rings. But, lest you be deceived (and as is usually the case with almost any trend), in fashion, everything old is new again—and finger art is no exception.

While we mere mortals were still snoring into our pillows this morning, Rihanna was looking flawless in Times Square at the crack of dawn. We're talking the red-lips, sleek-hair, fur-coat kind of flawless. And this was just what she wore BEFORE her television appearance on Good Morning America. She made the brief trek from her car to the studio wearing a glamorous, vintage floor-length fur coat over gray sweats and New Balance sneakers—Rih's elevated version of casual streetwear. She also arrived with her hair and makeup already done to perfection. (BTW, it's been months since we've seen her rock straight hair, and we've gotta admit we've missed it.)

This year, celebrities contributed an immeasurable gift to the greater good by making it acceptable to wear baby pajamas in public. Often long-legged, lined with fleece and sometimes in the form of an adorable animal, the onesie has been embraced by everyone from Justin Bieber to Beyonce. Hey, grown women deserve to be cozy and cute, too! Yet despite their growing popularity in 2013, we're pretttty sure that a few classic Christmas movies (like Elf, for example) ~actually~ tried to make onesies happen YEARS ago. But alas, no one paid attention—until now. Thanks for your help, celebrities! We'd definitely consider this a Christmas miracle.

The intersection and overlap of music and fashion is nothing new. In fact, it's the very foundation on which MTV Style exists (without it, I'm pretty sure we would implode on ourselves in a flurry of glitter, which would be pretty...but very, very sad *whimpers*). It's been an exciting year for our favorite cultural cross section, with each side informing the other countless times, from designers tapping musicians for campaigns to musicians revealing their own designs. But the phenomenon we enjoyed the MOST this year? The designer track. That is, a track inspired by a specific designer or label, usually featuring the fashion house's name in the hook.

Sure, we've seen these in previous years—Kreayshawn's "Gucci Gucci" and Soulja Boy Tell 'Em's "Louis Vuitton" in 2011, Kanye West's "Christian Dior Denim Flow" in 2010, Jennifer Lopez's "Louboutins" in 2009, and so on—but the sheer volume of songs dedicated to fashion darlings in a year amplified by the earworm "and we'll never be roooooyaaaaals" is SUPER interesting and worth a closer look.

Kristen Stewart, Karl Lagerfeld

Last night, at a rodeo-inspired Chanel runway show, Kristen Stewart was named the new face of Chanel, with a campaign landing in the spring of 2014. If none of the words in the preceding sentence made sense (Chanel, rodeo, Kristen Stewart), lemme explain.

Every year, Karl Lagerfeld hosts a Chanel Métiers d'Art presentation, which is a collection of pieces between the fall and spring seasons. This has taken place all over the globe. In the past, the show has occurred in Scotland, Toyko, and Bombay. This year, however, Karl opted for the slightly less-exotic city of Dallas, Texas, to show his Americana-inspired collection, proof that people will go wherever Karl Lagerfeld tells them to go. The rodeo-ready collection is heavy on fringe, tiered skirts, and denim—three design elements that don't appear often in Chanel offerings (though sometimes things happen). Kristen Stewart, fan of sheer jumpsuits, will be the face of this collection.

These days, seeing Miley Cyrus perform in the equivalent of underwear is pretty much the norm. She's shown us that, no matter the season, most occasions call for a high-cut, two-piece outfit and platform shoes. (Sidebar: she must save SO much storage and packing space without all those pesky pants to fold!) Naturally, her outfit in Will.I.Am's new joint for "Feelin' Myself" is no exception. Cyrus wears black latex separates, matching strappy heels and a gold chain belt to rap and shake her booty "like an expert" in the video, which also features appearances by French Montana and Wiz Khalifa. Oh, and that chain-link bomber she covers up with? Turns out, it didn't come from on-set wardrobe—it came from her very own closet.

Katy Perry

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.

Most people buy belts to help hold up their pants up or cinch their waist in an over-sized outfit. Celebrities, however, are not most people. Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna (see below) have all recently been spotted wearing Chanel chain belts that definitely serve the purpose of #FASHUN over function. I mean, the way these dangling designer links are typically worn—slung low, multi-layered and/or over already snug garments—these “belts” are actually a lot closer to like, really expensive necklaces for your hips.

Of course, no matter how you categorize this particular accessory, it will consistently portrait luxury. A seemingly average outfit is instantly upgraded by the addition of a draped, chain belt and if you happen to have one with those iconic double-c's, well, feel free to flip your hair. (Politely, of course.)

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.)

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
