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 been 25 years since Richard Gere courted Julia Roberts on the big screen. And finally, the rom-com adaptation of your dreams is being realized. Pretty Woman is being made into a musical.

Just this week, the film’s director announced he’d secured rights to bring it to the stage. Right now, details are limited. But you can bet I’ll wear thigh-high boots (à la Hollywood Boulevard) to see the scripted act in NYC.

Go ahead and thank the Instagram gods. Designer Marc Jacobs finally opened a personal account on the photo-loving platform (despite his reported distaste for it). And in the past few days he’s amassed a following over 40K strong with a single #nofilter shot. So why the change of heart? It’s likely tied to the overhaul of his namesake brand and a possible IPO bid.

Whatever the reason, I’m sure Miley Cyrus, the label’s face and a very creative Instagrammer herself, can’t wait to tag @themarcjacobs.

As if the titles of musician, producer, and designer weren’t impressive enough, Pharrell can now add Fashion Icon Award winner to his accolades. The mogul will be honored for his contributions to style at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 1.

From co-founding luxury sportswear brand Billionaire Boys Club to collaborating with Chanel, Pharrell has spent the past decade securing his spot as a trendsetter. Here’s to hoping for another larger-than-life accessory debut at the ceremony.

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.

Prepare to see Rihanna in the latest “Secret Garden” campaign, shot by Steven Klein at Versailles. Of her enviable new role, the musician said, “It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any color.” We’ll cheers to that, RiRi.

Reebok is tapping into the sweet nostalgia of the 90s. Today, the Boston-based brand will release their latest line of inflatable sneakers.

These new running kicks, dubbed the ZPump Fusion, borrow the air-bladder design of decades past. Meaning, they mold to the shape of your foot when inflated. Pretty cool, right? If history repeats itself, this one should be a slam dunk for Reebok.

Prepare to temporarily bid your Netflix adieu. Next month, Dior and I will give us a behind-the-scenes look at the exclusive world of haute couture.

The documentary follows Belgian designer Raf Simons in his first few months as creative director at Christian Dior. “I want to have quite a radical approach in terms of modernizing it,” he says of the storied French house.

And since Simons had only eight weeks to complete his first collection, Dior and I promises to deliver the drama – ahem, glamour.

Last year at the Costume Institute gala, which celebrated the opening of the Charles James: Beyond Fashion exhibitionmovie mogul Harvey Weinstein announced a restoration for the brand being honored. His wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, was favored to take the creative lead, but now it looks like Zac Posen has surpassed her as front-runner for the role.

Assuming Zac is hired as creative director, it would be a perfect fit. Just like Charles James, Zac is known for his highly coveted, celebrity-loved sculptural gowns. Not to mention, it wouldn’t be the first time Harvey hired the young talent – Zac also currently stars as a judge on Project Runway, where Harvey is an executive producer.

If Zac’s recent closing gown at New York Fashion Week is any indicator of things to come, this refresh is sure to be epic.

Calvin Klein Collection designer Francisco Costa breathed a sigh of relief when Lupita Nyong’o’s now-famed Oscar gown was found over the weekend. The pearl-encrusted stunner, reportedly worth $150,000, was swiped from the 31-year-old actress’s West Hollywood hotel a week ago.

But the drama doesn’t end there – the dress is allegedly made from faux pearls. The brand’s reaction? “Once it’s returned to us, we will be able to have the dress restored and archived, as it now represents an important moment for the brand.” Smooth move, CK.
