Stop the presses: Bad Gal RiRi has been named creative director of the women’s division at PUMA. The star will not only oversee the direction of its collection, but she’ll also act as a brand ambassador alongside Usain Bolt and Mario Balotelli.

This is hardly Rihanna’s first foray into fashion, as the singer has previously collaborated with brands including MAC, Balmain, and Gucci. PUMA CEO Bjørn Gulden called the decision a natural one, saying, “Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition – all these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand. . . . We’re delighted to have her as a partner, and we’re looking forward to what’s to come.” Not one to waste any time, Rihanna had her first creative meeting yesterday at the company’s headquarters in Germany.

We love seeing our favorite Barbadian take on fashion, but we plead with one last request: “Please don’t stop the music.”

Versace has named Madonna, notorious icon of the 80s, 90s, and well, the indefinite future, its spokesperson for the fourth time. Madonna replaces last year’s face (and rumored rival) Lady Gaga in next spring’s campaign: a 12-page spread where she appears ageless, wild, and every bit in step with her younger self.

This latest collaboration between the superstar and the luxury fashion house will appear in Vanity Fair and the American, French, and Italian editions of Vogue. Of Madonna’s persona, Donatella Versace tells the New York Times, “She is her own woman, a role model who shows other women how we can do what we want, and get what we want, and do so for all of our lives, with no compromise.”

Madonna’s triumphant return marks 10 years since her last partnership with Versace. For the woman who literally taught us how to vogue, it’s only right that she revisit the pages to remind us how it’s done.

Since these kids have better wardrobes than us, it’s totally acceptable to be jealous of them. Right?

1. Rachel Zoe styles practically everyone in Hollywood. So it’s hardly surprising that her son Skyler always looks so dapper.

2. You might not see Alia Wang in the tabloids as often as the Jolie-Pitts, but when she shows up, she owns it in street wear.

3. Tabitha and Marion Broderick are double-trouble. Not only do they look alike, they dress (adorably) alike, too.

4. When Kingston Rossdale dyed his mohawk blue at age 6, he pretty much cemented himself as a pint-sized trendsetter.

5. Let’s be real. No list of fashionable kids would be complete without the queen herself, Ms. Suri Cruise.

As smartphone users, we’ve all taken more selfies than we care to admit. And there’s a definite art to it. You have to know your angles, find the right light, choose a filter, and compose that all-important hashtag. Now, out of this art, there’s emerged a career. Say hello to the Instassistant: a person whose sole job is to snap “selfies” of their celeb boss. Narcissistic? Maybe. Genius? Yes. In fact, there may just be an open position for my feed…
