We get pretty excited when MAC announces a new celebrity collaboration. So this week we (we being, from left, style news editor Alex Apatoff, writer/reporter Jackie Fields and associate style editor Brittany Talarico) decided to test out four new star lipstick collaborations by the brand. From Lorde’s dramatic “Pure Heroine” to Kelly Osbourne’s polarizing light purple shade and Rihanna‘s very-glam red, we decked our pouts (and polled the office!) to find out our faves. Check out the photos, below, along with our reviews and our ratings, from 1 (would never wear again) to 10 (we plan to wear this every day).

It would be awfully hard for anyone to top Rihanna‘s major style moment at the CFDA Awards Monday, in which she brought traffic to a screeching halt as she hit the red carpet in a completely sheer Adam Selman gown embroidered with hundreds of thousands of Swarovski crystals (see the designer’s Instagram video below), plus matching gloves and headscarf and a whole lot of chutzpah.

The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards always promises high-fashion gowns, an Olsen red carpet cameo, and some emotional speeches from designers and celebrities alike. This year was no different. Catch a highlight reel of the five best moments for the 2014 CFDAs. Read More
When you’re collecting the Fashion Icon award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America at their annual awards gala, you can’t just show up wearing any old thing. And if you’re Rihanna — whose stylist says she’s already worn “all of [the] fall/winter” designer collections by the end of May — you really need to turn it out. Of course it would have to be something custom, something a little risqué and unexpected and something that would ensure people would talk. Well, we think she achieved all of those goals and then some.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards are Monday night, which means one thing and one thing only: Tons of A-list stars in high-fashion gowns by American designers for us to talk about (slash drool over). Before we start discussing all the looks on the red carpet tonight, though, we wanted to pay tribute to some of our favorite gowns from years past. See who had our favorite dresses from the event and leave your thoughts and favorites in the comments.

It’s apparently Noteworthy Fake Hair Week in Hollywood, and everybody who’s anybody is celebrating. We’ve had Nina Dobrev’s blonder, fuller mane, Blake Lively’s truly outrageous braid, Jennifer Lawrence’s luxurious beard — and now Naomi Watts and Rihanna are joining the party with their most recent locks looks.
