Wet hair, normally reserved for after the shower, at the beach, or in a pool, seems to be making its way into live performances and music videos. Beyonce sported a wet 'do onstage at the Grammys, while Harry Styles appears to have dripping wet hair in new promo images for One Direction's upcoming music video, "Midnight Memories." What gives? Some of us can't leave the house with wet hair, guys. Some of us need to load our hair up with product and wrap it around a curling iron approximately one billion times before it even comes close to being presentable. Some of us live in New York where it's going to be very cold forever (not #confirmed). Since some of us cannot take part in this new wet hair trend, let's discuss whether Harry or Beyonce wore the style better.

NOBODY PUTS BEY-Z IN THE CORNER. Which is why anyone else opening this Grammy party would be ridiculous: Beyonce and Jay Z's "Drunk in Love" is one of the most important songs of the year, and their love cannot be seconded. The performance was literally chill-inducing, with Beyonce posted up in ocean waves of fog on a chair, reminiscent of Flashdance. Consistent with her early-'80s, Broadway-influenced leotard steez, Bey was dressed in a gorgeous sheer-cage combo leotard by Nichole de Carle, sparkly polka-dotted Saint Laurent stockings with back seams, and black Stuart Weitzman jazz shoes for full Ann Reinking realness.

We are now embarking on Day 5 of Beyonce's 2013
wig snatch album release heard 'round the world. Just in case you were involved in some sort of experiment that had you cut-off from all humanity over the weekend, let me bring you up to speed. Without any promotion or warning, King Bey dropped a 14-track, 17-video visual album at midnight on December 13 via iTunes. She blew minds and shattered records, and yes, we are STILL talking about it!
Most of the music videos are still relegated behind the wall of iTunes where you need to drop some coin ($14.99 to be exact) to watch them, which IMHO is totally worth it because (A) cultural currency, (B) Beyonce, and (C) there are SO MANY OUTFITS you need to see to believe. Yesterday, Bey offered up her music videos for "Drunk In Love" and her new single "XO," giving you a taste of what you might be missing if you haven't copped the album yet. Funnily enough, those are also the only two videos on Bey's self-titled project that feature her in just one look. YOU GOTTA EARN THOSE WARDROBE CHANGES, Y'ALL!
