Cara Delevingne Singing Karaoke? So Kawaii

The award for this week’s best dose of random can be confidently awarded to Cara Delevingne. With the help of her self-grooming brows, emojis fit for a Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper, and the lyrical stylings of LL Cool J, the supermodel lip-synced “Control Myself” for a LOVE magazine feature titled “caraoke!

A play on the time-honored Japanese tradition of karaoke, the viral video features teleprompter-style text running across the screen as the pretty Brit performs with a green wig and colorful vinyl raincoat on a pile of wafer candy.

If you find yourself snoozing like Cara on the morning of her Vogue interview, look no further than this bubbly clip to wake you up.

Most Coveted: A Peek at This Week’s Boutiques

By Nicole Andrew, Rue La La Fashion Editor

 
“Little” indulgences – be they small in price or size – can go a long way in boosting your mood. This week, I’m sharing three summer finds, as well as one piece of pint-sized luxury with so much personality it will make your heart sing.

most-coveted-blog-main

1. DV by Dolce Vita ‘Hoyt’ Romper. Rompers and jumpsuits have come a long way from vintage styles of the 70s. Now more tailored than ever, the cuts are made to flatter in all the right ways. 

2. Elie Saab ‘Le Parfum’ Eau de Toilette. Light with fresh floral notes, this is the perfect summer scent – plus, the bottle pulls double-duty as chic vanity décor!

3. Diane von Furstenberg ‘Martha’ Sunglasses. What’s that, you say? Too many sunglasses? Never.

4. Prada Saffiano Tote. A little embellishment never hurt anyone (neither did a mini Prada).   

Check out these picks and more on Rue La La this week.

Jared Leto: The Internet’s Latest Darling

Last weekend, Thirty Seconds to Mars star Jared Leto posted a picture of himself hugging a tree with the caption, “Tree huggin hippy? Guilty!” And just like that, the Internet went wild, editing the image to make it look like Jared is hugging everything from President Obama’s face to Angelina Jolie’s leg.

Now, a good meme can make your day. But these? They have the potential to make your whole week, especially now that you can create your very own #jaredhugginleto meme on the star’s official website. So congratulations, Jared Leto. You’ve inspired Internet gold. Bravo.

When Harry Met Sally, a Quarter Century Ago

I was only a year old when the movie When Harry Met Sally first debuted on the big screen on July 14, 1989. It’s true, I could barely hold my own bottle. But that didn’t stop me from, years later, sitting down with friends to watch one of the most influential rom-coms in pop culture history. And, yes, we’re still watching.

Clueless the Musical, Starring… Katy Perry?

As if we didn’t already love Clueless enough, director Amy Heckerling recently divulged to Vulture that she is bringing her cult-favorite 90s film to Broadway. Working as hard as Cher did to make over Tai, Amy is debating who should tackle the leading role of the movie’s beloved Beverly Hills princess.

Kay Perry

Amy told Vulture, “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death.” While I’d love to see the doe-eyed singer on stage, the director also threw another rising star’s name in the ring, adding: “Maybe Iggy [Azalea] wants to do it!” After all, Iggy did pull inspiration from Cher and the gang in the music video for her chart-topping hit, “Fancy.” While the cast gets sorted out, I’ll be anxiously awaiting the dance routines that accompany my favorite scenes.

The Best-Dressed List: Top Looks from July 6 to 12

Each Week, Our Fashion Editor Decides Who Deserves Top Honors

 
Olivia, Victoria, and Emma: Veteran style stars, each with a distinct (and flawless) look that we admire. We typically know what to expect from these fashion mavens, but they still keep us on our toes with offbeat outfit choices.

Though Olivia’s getup isn’t atypical, she switched up her beauty routine with an orange lip and freshly dyed blonde hair. Usually opting for darker shades, Victoria served up a lively colorblocked dress at Wimbledon. Meanwhile, the generally demure Emma stepped out in a macramé bralette in Paris. My opinion? Keep the surprises coming. 

The Best-Dressed List

 

  1. Olivia Palermo in Dior at the label’s Fall 2014 couture show in Paris.
  2. Victoria Beckham at Wimbledon in a dress from her Spring 2015 Collection.
  3. Emma Watson in Valentino at the label’s Fall 2014 couture show in Paris.

Emma Watson’s Next Gig: U.N. Ambassador

The newest addition to Emma Watson’s résumé? (And no, it’s not a Harry Potter reunion…) She’s been named the next Goodwill Ambassador for U.N. Women, a branch dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. The starlet will work with the HeForShe campaign, a women-led movement in which men are encouraged to speak out against inequalities faced by females.

“We are thrilled and honored to work with Emma, whom we believe embodies the values of U.N. Women,” Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the executive director of U.N. Women, said in a statement. “The engagement of young people is critical for the advancement of gender equality in the 21st century, and I am convinced that Emma’s intellect and passion will enable U.N. Women’s messages to reach the hearts and minds of young people globally.”

Emma and Phumzile aren’t the only excited ones. Marie Claire reports that after the announcement, the U.N.’s website shut down due to an influx of traffic. Quite the accomplishment for her first day on the job.

Chopped: Kristen Stewart Rocks a New Pixie Cut

Following in the footsteps of A-list counterparts JLaw and Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart has chopped off her long locks – and it looks good.

The Twilight star and former sweetheart of Robert Pattinson debuted her perfectly messy pixie cut yesterday at Chanel’s Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014/15 show in Paris. Her shorter style also sported a hint of orange, said to be the result of a grown-out dye job from the actress’s upcoming role in American Ultra.

Shocking? Maybe if it were Jennifer Aniston, but from Kristen Stewart, we’ve come to expect the unexpected.
