When- not if, when- Marina Diamandis enters your life, you'd better make room in your closet AND your iTunes library. The Welsh singer burst upon the music scene a few years ago as Marina & the Diamonds and has stayed busy since, thanks to DIY pop singles like "Obsessions" and "Mowgli's Road." Now with two full-length albums to her name and a headlining tour underway, the 27-year-old songbird has earned a cult following for her music AND her entirely original style. She sports onstage staples like old-school cheerleading jackets, metallic minidresses, and flouncy skirts, conjuring up images of a fashion love child between Gwen Stefani and Katy Perry...if they decided to move to Pleasantville, that is (shout out to Assistant Editor Gaby Wilson for the spot-on style reference!). Marina's been working serious beauty game these days too, rarely seen without bubblegum pink lipstick, major mascara, and her trademark miniature heart on her left cheekbone. So it's only appropriate that she shows off all of this for the October/November issue of Foam magazine.

We've been on a backpack kick lately. It started in early fall when we were inspired by all of the back-to-school accessories, but its an obsession that has extended to now—winter—when we have so much bulky junk to carry around that it's getting ridiculous. We're not ashamed of our snail-like ways of hoarding miscellaneous items to see us through this big bad city, but we realize a better way of not destroying our backs would be to actually invest in a backpack. Surprisingly, it's hard to choose one, which is why we're thrilled (nay ELATED) about Eastpak's new line of Artist Studio backpacks. In a tortoise shell, the company asked more than 130 creative types from musicians to nail artists to go to town on a blank, original Eastpak canvas backpack. They could draw on them, cut them up, add weird blingy items, or do whatever they wanted. The results are ZHAMAZE. And what's even better, all of the proceeds from the sale of these one-of-a-kind bags go to Designers Against AIDS. The only problem is which one to choose...

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