Rihanna is ready to rock.

We thought we were well-versed on the topic of the Robyn Rihanna Fenty-produced show, Styled To Rock, but, boy, how things have changed. The show, which was originally set to air on the Style Network on November 5th, has been switched to debut on Bravo on October 25th. YAAAS! Rihanna-approved #FASHUN sooner? We likey.

The show had already promised famous mentors, including longtime RiRi stylist, Mel Ottenberg, model Erin Wasson, and some guy named Pharrell (yeah, IDK either, JK I DO), but this new preview gives us a taste of the celeb guest judges we can expect to see and, dang, there are a lot.

Rihanna can now add "reality show producer" to her resume (a document which I'm not sure exists): her new show Styled to Rock will be hitting the Style Network on November 5th. Who better to discover the next big design talent than the rockstar herself? Oh, how about Pharrell Williams, model Erin Wasson, and Ri's stylist, Mel Ottenberg? Yeah, they'll def do.

Ciara Iggy Azalea

The stars were out last night at the 2013 VMAs—some in more clothing than others, but they were out! And if there was ever a time to go nearly nude on a red carpet, the VMAs are it. Over the years, celebs have not been shy about showing skin: from a singular purple pasty to butt-baring chain mail draping to big slits and high hems, we thought we’d seen it all. Well, we were wrong.

Ciara (in Givenchy Fall 2010 Couture) and Iggy Azalea (in Emilio Pucci) made heads turn and do a double take in second-skin sheer dresses with strategically-placed embellishments. So that’s what Ciara meant when she told us to expect a little “bling bling!” We love the subtle sexiness these gowns bring to the carpet—no nip slips here! Although, if you do think you’ve caught a glimpse of a naughty bit, it can always be chalked up to a stray sequin.

If anyone is going to discover the next ground-breaking designer, it's gonna be Rihanna. The pop megastar (and designer herself!) is always at the razor's edge of every trend, thanks largely to her impeccable taste and the assistance of her brilliant stylist Mel Ottenberg. There have been countless snaps given to Ottenberg and Ri's co-designer Adam Selman, so it's no surprise that Ri recruited one of the all-stars to serve on the star-studded panel of her Style Media show, Styled To Rock, alongside Pharrell and Erin Wasson. We can imagine that Adam is super busy, you know, working on Rihanna's River Island line and designing her tour costumes, but whatever the reason might be, it will be Mel who we'll see on the new season of Styled, selecting, out of a group of 12 up-and-coming designers, the opportunity to style some of the biggest stars in Hollywood and prove that they're fashion's next big thing. Of her relationship with Mel, Rihanna said, "Mel and I have such a similar aesthetic. It’s as if he can read my mind sometimes... I love his attention to detail and all the research he does for every look. He is more than a stylist. He is an artist.”

Beyoncé performs on 'American Idol' on May 25.

• Last night's American Idol finale brought out THE BIGGEST vocal powerhouses (Ms. Beyoncé and Ms. Lady Gaga, of course) complete with uh-mazing performance outfits. Beyoncé NAILED IT in a to-die-for Zac Posen platinum gown while debuting her new single “1+1” and danced to “Crazy In Love” in a Swarovski crystal-encrusted Ralph & Russo dress. Lady Gaga wore a triangular headpiece replete with studs and loose chains, which sort of reminds us of the Tree of Souls from Avatar. Seriously, Google it. {Vulture}

• On her final show ever (*sniff sniff*), Oprah signed off in a custom coral L'Wren Scott dress with a dip-dyed chiffon belt. We think this fresh, form-fitting dress couldn't be more perfect for her last goodbye. The bright color shows optimism for what lies ahead, and HEY! Don't cry! QUICK, look at these photos of doggies in scarves saying inspirational quotes from her show! {Styleist}

• The Savannah College of Art and Design lined an ENTIRE reception hall with Manolo Blahnik shoe boxes. Let's all ogle at this breathtaking photo, shall we? {Racked}

Everyone knows Kim Kardashian is engaged to basketball star Kris Humphries, BUT HAVE YOU SEEN HER RING? It's 20.5 carats. Yes, you read that right. Kris designed the 20-plus-carat ring with jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, aaaaaaand we're officially giving up on life. {Oh No They Didn't!}

• Model/resident Brooklyn hipster Erin Wasson will launch a capsule collection with French retailer Zadig & Voltaire this September. The line will be sold exclusively on Net-A-Porter and will feature suede jackets, leather pants, cashmere, and more. {Racked}

• Suburbanites rejoice! Rachel Zoe's line is coming to a mall near you (a bougie mall, anyway). Her new collection will be at ALL 41 Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman locations around the U.S. starting this summer. We die. {Elle}

We've seen A LOT of red carpets, but it's been a while since we've seen one quite like the one at the Hollywood premiere of Somewhere, the Sofia Coppola-directed drama that stars Elle Fanning. Nearly every celebrity in attendance—from Transformers' Isabel Lucas to The Office's Ellie Kemper—was dressed to the nines. And, we're not talking standard black cocktail dress-dressed to the nines (that can get kind of boring, ya know?). We're talking colorful jumpsuits, wild accessories and braided updos—looks with some flavor. Here are our favorites from the evening...

In a black Valentino shift, 12-year-old Elle Fanning had some big-bow action going on at the waist. We adore her braided crown and sparkly flats with (yep!) more bows.


Erin Wasson

Many of the critics aren't feeling model Erin Wasson's burnt orange and turquoise Louis Vuitton jumpsuit, but we LOVE it...on her. Sure, on someone else this getup could look like a cute pajama set, but on Erin (who's got the attitude to pull it off) it's completely chic.

Sofia Coppola sparkled in a Louis Vuitton black sequin dress, which she teamed with LV wedges and an LV clutch.


Isabel Lucas

Actress Isabel Lucas looked stunning in a lacy black top, long violet skirt, and strappy sandals. We love that she pulled her hair off of her face to highlight the ensembles intricacies.


Chloë Sevigny

Chloë Sevigny looked pretty in a double-breasted plaid dress. The earth-toned tartan's playful purple stripes looked oh so cute!


Mena Suvari

Never underestimate the power of accessories. An oversize $550 leopard-print clutch by Kelly Locke takes Mena Suvari's all-black ensemble from good to GREAT.


Ellie Kemper

Ellie Kemper looked like fashion-perfection in her ready-to-wear dark navy dress, which she paired with a black clutch, black cocktail ring and nude pumps.
