In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we noticed plenty of holiday party-ready dresses (both sheer and sparkly), but noticed one shoe look that doesn’t seem to be gaining legs (so to speak).

Anyone who has ever followed Demi Lovato on Twitter (so, uh, nearly 20 million people) knows that the singer and X Factor judge is passionate about her nail art. That’s why it came as no surprise to hear that she was partnering up with The New Black to create her own nail art kits, which just launched at Ulta on Friday.
Remember the days when stars would rather walk the red carpet naked than be snapped without a full face of makeup? Yeah, we don’t either. With her bare-faced Instagram posted today, Rihanna joins a huge group of A-list stars who are sharing makeup-free shots with the world via social media. Whether it’s to show how normal they are, to control the “natural” look they want to present or just to brag about how amazing their skin is, the hottest trend in Hollywood is to snap a just-woke-up selfie, slap a Valencia filter on it and let the compliments roll in. Check out some of our favorite recent makeup-free shots below and tell us: Who did bare-faced best?

If Demi Lovato still had to do reports on how she spent her summer vacation, we can bet she’d sum it up in one sentence: “I just kept getting blonder and blonder.”
From the honey hue she debuted in May, the singer has kept lightening up to the almost platinum shade she’s sporting today — and she’s been loving every step of the way.
And so have her fans. “The overall reaction is … people like it!” Lovato told PEOPLE, before adding, “I don’t really care if people like it or not. I like being blonde and it’s fun for the summertime.”
She admits that the decision to dye was spontaneous — and her next one will be too. “I never know what I’m going to do next,” she said. “Maybe like a honey brown or a dirty blonde or something, so it’s not too blonde.”
How does her hair handle all that back-and-forth? “What I do is just take care of it a lot,” she shared. “I do olive oil treatments, which are really easy. Also, because of my [Hispanic ethnicity], my hair is really strong naturally.”

Demi Lovato has something to celebrate. Last month, the singer directed a string of Tweets at Barbie’s official handle expressing her concerns about the iconic doll’s unrealistic body type and urging Mattel to create a curvier model. And someone was listening.
No, you can’t go to Toys “R” Us and buy a Barbie with a booty yet, but artist Nickolay Lamm has given the doll a real life makeover.
