Did Rihanna just get a haircut between Paris Fashion Week shows?

If you thought fashion month was winding down just because we're on our last leg—Paris Fashion Week—think again! It seems Balenciaga's unexpected guest (#KanyeAlert) isn't the only surprise popping off in Paris: I'm preeetty sure Rihanna just got a haircut BETWEEN SHOWS. *rubs eyes, does triple take, gets whiplash, rubs neck also*

Rihanna in 'Vogue.'

As expected, Rihanna is Vogue's March 2014 cover girl. Not as expected? Just how amazing the interview is. Like, I already thought RiRi and I were close (I follow her on Instagram, etc.), but after reading the article, we're, like, tight. *crosses fingers to demonstrate closeness* I mean, now I know her jewelry is "all fake—from Claire’s." I know everyone in her entourage calls her "She," and I know that she does her very own eye makeup using MAC eyeliner. That's the type of stuff only best friends know, right?

Another new Rihanna BFF is Plum Sykes, author of the feature, who not only hung around with Rih for the day, but was #blessed to be styled by her, too. One of the first pieces RiRi dresses Plum in is an oversized jacket (from Alexander Wang, natch) because, Rihanna reveals, "More than anything, I like a jacket. You can do anything with a great jacket, the bigger the better." You also don't need to wear a shirt or bra with a big jacket, so there really are multiple benefits.

Rihanna, Balmain

Late last year (that joke never gets old, right?), Rihanna nonchalantly dropped what looked to be her ENTIRE Balmain campaign on Instagram. A campaign that has BadGalRiRi wearing houndstooth suits in abandoned steam rooms is a surefire win in our books, but we might even love the behind-the-scenes look even more. Candid Rihanna! Getting her hair and makeup done! Pacing around the set in a head-to-toe j'outfit! It's the best. Balmain has established a permanent place in our BTS-loving hearts by releasing not one, but THREE videos of Rihanna's campaign!

Well well well, looks like Rihanna has landed herself a new gig. Earlier this morning on Instagram (duh, where else would Rih break news?), Bad Gal announced that she's the face of Balmain's Spring/Summer 2014 campaign, delivering the deets and giving us the first look in one fell swoop.

The ads, which were shot by Inez and Vinoodh and styled by Rihanna's go-to guy, Mel Ottenberg, feature colorfully dressed Rih set against a monochromatic, tiled background. A steam room minus the steam, it would appear—more high fashion than I've ever found in a steam room, but Rihanna hangs out in more luxurious places than I do, so maybe wearing a j'outfit with gold-chain stripes is the norm in saunas of the rich and famous? IDK.

Rihanna Balmain

Dang, Rihanna certainly is making the most of her trip to Paris! Not only is she doing touristy things like visiting the Eiffel Tower with her BFFs and hittin' up the most badass clubs, but she even found time to squeeze in some SUPER high-fashion moments. I mean, RiRi ALREADY gave us a tour of Coco Chanel's decked-out apartment, and last night she posted pics of her hangin' at Balmain's headquarters with creative director Olivier Rousteing on her Instagram, and we kiiind of can't handle it. In one photo, she sported a skin-tight black frock with a quilted leather jacket, backward hat, pointy white stilettos, and oversized hoop earrings with the caption, "You are the most beautiful spirit, so down to earth and kind! @olivier_rousteing I think I'm in love!!! #Balmain." :') OMG, our cold fashion hearts officially just melted.

Gossip Girl Blake Lively stepped out for the Time 100 Most Influential People Gala yesterday with a headful of fiery red waves (just like Rumer Willis, Mandy Moore, and Drew Barrymore!). Why ditch her natural blonde locks? The actress is in a film called Hick where her character is a redhead. {Us}

• The IT dress in celeb circles is the Dolce & Gabbana white lace mini, which has been spotted on Kate Bosworth, Anne Hathaway, Blake Lively, Diane Kruger, and LeAnn Rimes. {People StyleWatch}

Olivier Rousteing, who is currently in charge of women's wear at Balmain, has been tapped as the label's new lead designer (replacing Christophe Decarnin). Way to climb that ladder, Olivier! {T Magazine}

• A proposed New York City bill would punish buyers with a year in jail or a $1,000 fine for buying knock-off bags. {Styleite}

• Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has created a line of 16 perfume oils for Dungeons & Dragons fans—each scent is meant to evoke each aspect of the mythical characters that players create in the game. {Allure}

• According to a recent report, many editors snip out the size labels of clothes for celebrity shoots, particularly if the size is larger than what the star says they are. SNEAKY! { The Cut}

Balmain's $1,515 embellished flag-print silk tank is garnering a ton of attention. Some critiques say that the top, which is fraught with burn holes and is attached at the seams with safety pins, is antipatriotic. {Huffington Post}

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