Pull up a chair and break out a fan, you guys. New Balance and Karl Lagerfeld are going to court! The footwear company has filed a lawsuit against the Chanel and Fendi mastermind for "intellectual property rights related to [their] iconic Lifestyle footwear designs." And they're not the only one who feel that Uncle Karl might've stepped on some toes in this sneaker war. Fashion blogger SHEFinds noted the similarities a few months ago.

Rihanna in fur and sneakers, NBD.

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.)

There are three profoundly important things about spring: 1. Mini Eggs 2. Bubbles and 3. New sneakers. This has been true since the dawn of time. Springtime, aka New Sneakertime, is by far the most exciting season of the year to add sauce to your shoe game, because after months of slush and glum there's nothing better than to greet Mister Sun with a fresh pair of runners. Sun's like, "your feet look fly," and you're like, "DUH I KNOW, NOW KEEP SHININ'" and your walk becomes a strut (or if you're wearing the proper sneaker, possibly even a strut-run); the grass is green and the pavement is clean and if you ever wanted to know what glory feels like, this is it. It's eye-popping colorways, it's that new sneaker smell, and it's the extra pep in yo step. So whether you're a sneakerhead or not, we gathered some kicks that will add a little "daaaaammmnn" to your everyday garb - no matter what your mood.


Throwbacks + color = true love forever.

Throwbacks are key for any season, but when spring rolls around you gotta jump on that color train. We're the luckiest ducks around, because Nike provides us with about one billion Air Max 1 colorway options, including this little white/blue glow/volt number. New Balance's Yacht Club 574 is available in several high-octane combinations, but we think these ones are particularly GRAPE. (Don't hate us.) Jersey's Packer Shoes celebrates the 30th anniversary of Reebok's Classic Leather with a bright twist, and if you're feeling dainty, Adidas SL 72 runners are a wonderfully ladylike choice.

The Seven hosts looked as casual as we've ever seen them on today's episode.

They both look so relaxed and comfortable, which is a perfect way to kick off the weekend. Find out where to pick up these looks below.

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