If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be BFFs with Rihanna, the next best thing is here – she’s on Snapchat.

Posting from the username “Rihanna,” the self-proclaimed bad gal is giving us a behind-the-scenes look at her life. But don’t expect carefully posed glamour shots or editorial sneak peeks, like on her Instagram. This is a glimpse of the real Rihanna, or “Rob” (short for her first name Robyn), as her snap-featured friends often call her. Sure, it’s hard to forget she’s a celebrity when she posts videos of Katy Perry kicking it VIP at Coachella. But we kind of love knowing even Rihanna has to kill bugs in hotel rooms and shop at convenience stores.

Other celebs, like Kendall Jenner and Ryan Seacrest, were early adopters of the oh-so-addicting social media platform. However, Rihanna appears to be crushing the competition – per usual.

To selfie or not to selfie? If you’re headed to a music festival this year, it’s likely not up for debate. Coachella has officially banned selfie sticks, while Lollapalooza similarly outlawed all GoPro-type attachments. This leads to my next question: Why?

Now I know what you’re thinking, selfie naysayers. But it’s really nothing personal. Selfie sticks have been a nuisance to festival-goers, as they often hinder the crowd’s view. Also? Users can take unauthorized recordings of shows, which is very much frowned upon. So this year, concert organizers decided to stick it to them.

It’s not just the drama and laughs we tune in to on HBO’s Girls – we’re analyzing the clothing, too. Following this group of four twenty-something friends (and sometimes foes), every personality can take a sartorial cue from Lena Dunham’s hit show. Study up on each character’s style, then set your DVR for this weekend’s season four finale.

Girls Style

Clockwise from top left: Jessa, Marnie, Shoshanna, and Hannah

Jessa
The definition of a free spirit. Dressed in laid-back boho pieces, she looks like a world traveler, because she is.

Marnie
Whether a polished artgallery assistant or a beanie-loving musician, she always appears put together – no matter how uncertain her life seems.

Shoshanna
Girly, bubbly, and statement-making. Her signature look? Let’s just say she’s never met a hair accessory she didn’t like.

Hannah
With an effortless and vintageinspired vibe, her outfits often match her every mood, i.e., anything goes.

Shop each character’s wardrobe must-haves in our Get the Look: Style Inspired by HBO‘s Girls Boutique, which opened Saturday, March 21, at 11AM ET.

When it comes to celebrity style, you’ll have to determine “Who wore it best?” on your own for the next few months.

Since the passing of host Joan Rivers last September, Fashion Police returned in January with the additions of Brad Goreski and Kathy Griffin. The new cast had a shaky start, with growing controversies as the season – and the awards shows – went on. Kelly Osbourne announced her resignation last month, with Kathy Griffin stepping down shortly thereafter, both citing creative differences. And yesterday, E! announced that the show is going on hiatus until September.

So set your TiVos for fall – and place your bets for who will step in to host.

For weeks, fans of The Bachelor have convened on couches and by water coolers to recap a drama-packed season. But tonight, bachelor Chris Soules will pick between two stylish women – Becca Tilley and Whitney Bischoff. Of course it has us (and Rue buyer Ilana S.) thinking about what each woman will wear to the final rose ceremony. Here, Ilana shares her tips for wowing that special someone on your next date night.

Style Inspired by "The Bachelor"

Try separates: This season, we’ve seen new trending night-out wears. Give the usual dress a break and swap for a monochrome jumpsuit or matching crop top and skirt.

Less is more: A simple number can still make a statement. Pair a classic silhouette and color with bold accessories (much like Whitney), to keep the look fresh. A bright lip or lash extensions are a flirty final touch.

Experiment with embellishment: Don’t shy away from mixing metallics or adding an extra layer of sparkle with your clutch and heels.

Put together your ideal date night outfit in our Snag a Rose: Glam Style Inspired by The Bachelor Boutique, which opened Monday, March 9, at 11AM ET.

Claire Underwood, House of Cards
First Ladies are always in the spotlight, which means impeccable style is a must. An elegant-meets-minimalist sheath dress in a neutral hue commands attention – from campaigning to press interviews – like a true shot-caller.

Selina Meyer, Veep
This Vice President shakes up Capitol Hill with form-fitting shift dresses in a host of look-at-me colors. Always adding a pop of personality, she proves that professional panache doesn’t have to be so serious.

Alicia Florrick, The Good Wife
A power suit with style? This tenacious lawyer nails it every time. Flawlessly tailored and just curve-hugging enough, her blazer and pencil skirt combos intimidate in all the right ways.

Suddenly craving a little wardrobe update? Our Power Dressing: Inspired by TV’s Leading Ladies Boutique opened Friday, February 27, at 3PM ET.

If you thought Lady Gaga’s red-carpet entrances were OMG-worthy, they’re nothing compared to her epic Valentine’s Day. The singer’s boyfriend, actor Taylor Kinney, popped the question on February 14, after he had already showered her with a truly enviable rose bouquet.

The pop star said yes to Taylor and a heart-shaped diamond stunner, posting a photo of her new bling on Instagram yesterday. Post-proposal, the pair celebrated their good news at Joanne Trattoria, the NYC Italian restaurant owned by Gaga’s family.

With a history of head-turning ensembles, we can’t wait to see her over-the-top wedding gown. (And more importantly, which lucky designer gets to create it.) Now the only question is, how do we score an invite?

This week, The Tonight Show temporarily relocated from its New York studio to Los Angeles, and to mark the move, host Jimmy Fallon channeled another beloved westward-traveling TV icon. Perhaps you recall Will Smith on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air?

Jimmy leaned on his buddies from The Roots to parody the show’s opening segment, even enlisting the help of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro (who you may know as Carlton) from the 90s sitcom. So next time you’re “chillin’ out maxin’, relaxin’ all cool,” make sure to take five and watch this on-point clip.

Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show is a big deal on its own. But it gets even better: the singer just confirmed her designer BFF Jeremy Scott is creating her costumes. (Yes, multiple looks.)

Even though the performance is just over 12 minutes long, Katy revealed to E! Online that she’ll change outfits at least once. “On my real tour, the Prismatic World Tour, I have nine, ten different costumes. So I would feel very bored if I didn’t change my look at least once on the show,” she said.

And who better to dress her than Jeremy? Katy has been a front-row fixture at his runway shows, rocked his looks onstage, and even wore a Jeremy Scott for adidas tracksuit in the Pepsi Super Bowl teaser commercial. Needless to say, she’s a fan.

Whether she’s killing it in a glitter getup or Jeremy’s latest Barbie-inspired look, one thing’s for certain: I’ll be glued to the TV screen for every glorious minute.
