Considering how into the World Cup she's been throughout the past month, it's not a surprise that Rihanna watched the final game IRL in Rio de Janeiro. Also not surprising? After the game, she hung out with the victors. If Rihanna wants to hang out and take selfies with the World Cup, that's what happens, OK?
To the untrained eye, it may seem like Rih wore her new piercing, fave bucket hat, and a regular ol' black shirt to hang with the German team. The shirt, of course, is not regular, nor is it old old—it's Trapstar, has a very World Cup-appropriate name, and can be yours for $50.
Worth the fine, TBH.

You got to hand it to Neymar. Aside from being Brazil's star player and all, he's a master of his appearance. Not only has he invented his own kind of mohawk, he also showed up at his team's first World Cup game with a new frosted-tip boy band 'do–a look that almost overshadowed his playing. Now he's getting people talking once again with another aesthetic choice: his underwear.
We thought that elaborate hairstyles were the best way for players to show off their personalities, but, um, we somehow totally forgot about what's on under their uniforms. FIFA, the organization that governs the World Cup, isn't pleased with Neymar after he exposed the waistband of his non-officially-sponsored underwear (yes, that's a real thing) at the end of last Monday's Brazil vs. Ghana match. The offense is even fineable.

Extensions are nothing new. They've been a thing since basically forever. Urban Outfitters was even selling clip-on bangs for a minute (which, by some miracle of commerce, have since sold out). Clip-on dreads, though? That surprised even me. Boho-emporium Free People is selling "dreadlock extensions" in packs of 10 for $128. They also sell them in an alternate "blue tie-dye" if you're feeling slightly more alt when it comes to your faux style. As shudder-inducing as they are, we can't quite ignore them the way we probably should, thanks to a little American futboler bringing the matted tendril look back into popular vernacular. I'm speaking, of course, about Kyle Beckerman.
The 2014 World Cup isn't even into the knockout rounds yet and it's already gifted us with a whole bevy of things to talk about: crazy hairstyles, Rihanna's fandom, and all of the stylish gear it has inspired. Now designer soccer balls can be added to that list. Pharrell, Rick Owens, Roberto Cavalli, Missoni, and more put their individual spins (LOL, get it?) on the 2014 Adidas World Cup soccer ball for the Gol de Letra Foundation, an organization that benefits Brazilian youth.
