Anna Wintour

An Anna Wintour book? Sure. A movie? Perhaps. But a musical inspired by the Vogue EIC? Brace yourselves--it's happening, people. Ryan Raftery, the creator of the show, titled Ryan Raftery Is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion, got the idea after seeing the famously icy Wintour on the street where, according to him, she grimaced in his direction. "She’s Darth Vader and Hilary Clinton in one little package," he explained. Having run out of material for his solo act Raftery decided to use the encounter with Wintour as inspiration for a new show. The controversial Kimye Vogue cover is the basis for the plot--Raftery paints the picture that Wintour believes she'll be fired for it, causing her to reflect on her life. And while we know the musical is meant to be funny (Raftery changed the lyrics of Chicago's "Class" to "Flats," as in the shoe style), we can't help but think it'll also be just a little bit glamorous. It is Anna Wintour, after all.

Rita Ora for Adidas

Rita Ora's collection for Adidas is set to launch on August 21, and fans of the singer will be happy to know a teaser video has been released. In it, Ora can be seen wearing pieces from the collection and narrating, "Goodbye, barriers and obstacles. So long to everything holding me back. Believe in yourself and you can become anything." And Ora may be living proof of that. The "How We Do" singer went from selling sneakers as a kid, to designing a collection for one of the biggest sneaker labels in the industry. "I grew up working at a sneaker store when I was 16 and am a huge sneaker head. It's so cool that I'm able to do this with a brand that I sold when I was younger," she said in an interview with WWD back in May. The 21st is just ten short days away, but if you can't wait until then, be sure to check out the video.

Rihanna

We realize we may cause a frenzy here, but we would be remiss if we didn't share this news with our readers. And we have to say, this is all just speculation at this point, as RiRi herself has not commented. But, the 26-year old singer purchased the trademark for Fenty, her last name, for several categories, including apparel, beauty, cosmetics, swimwear, and lingerie. She's already collaborated with River Island on three collections, and has a wildly fabulous collection with MAC Cosmetics, so an eponymous line may just be in the works. Stay tuned!

KAMALIKULTURE SQUARE CAT EYE

The hunt for cool specs is a never-ending one. Sure, there are tons of options, probably now more so than ever, but it's sort of similar to shopping for jeans--the more choices we have, the harder it is to make a decision. But these Kamalikulture Square Cat Eye specs in Gold Sparkle were pretty much a no-brainer. They're sparkly, they're as unique and unexpected as they are chic, and they're less than a hundred dollars. Plus, we think it's kind of cool that Norma Kamali wears the same square cat eye style every day!

Lucy Hale + Hollister

Fans of Lucy Hale will soon get to see their favorite actress and singer in a whole new role--fashion designer. Hollister has tapped the Pretty Little Liars star, not to be the face of a new campaign, but to design a capsule collection in a two-part collaboration with the label. The collection is inspired by Hale's personal style (although we totally wouldn't mind if it was inspired by Aria Montgomery, her PTL alter-ego), and will include dresses, skirts, leggings and tops. Tapping Hale for its first-ever celebrity collaboration is part of Abercrombie & Fitch's plan to rebrand the Hollister label to compete with fast fashion retailers like Forever 21, H&M, and Zara. Look for the first installment of the Hollister + Lucy Hale collection in very limited quantities starting this Friday, August 8.

  Drew Barrymore Flower Beauty Fragrances
We've wondered and waited, and now it's confirmed--Drew Barrymore is adding fragrances to her Flower Beauty line. The Flower Fragrance Collection features a trio of perfumes, called "Cherished," "Radiant," and "Sultry," and is described as "scents that capture the joy of life and love, in all of its meanings." Unlike other celebrity fragrances (think Paris Hilton and Britney Spears), Barrymore isn't going to be front and center of the ad campaigns for this collection, but instead, she's letting the Flower brand blossom on it's own. Look for the Flower fragrances in Wal-Mart stores starting in October.

Shark by Tara

And if you're into Sharknado, Tara Reid, the film's star, has created a fragrance just for you. Shark by Tara incorporates "a plethora of lavender colored flowers," according to the actress' website, and retails for about $25. If you're into it.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Lust for Lacquer

We're not ashamed to admit that we've been obsessed with the Marc Jacobs beauty line since it launched, but obsession may be an understatement when it comes to the Lust for Lacquer Lip Vinyls. They're infused with all kinds of goodness like antioxidants and essential oils, which we never knew we could love so much, plus they've got just the right amount of color and tons of shine. They're pretty much the perfect glosses.

MAC Marge Simpson line

As beauty icons go, Marge Simpson may not be at the top of most lists, but with that blue bouffant--easily one of the most iconic hairstyles in television history--and those up-to-there lashes, Mrs. Simpson is actually quite the bombshell. To celebrate her 25 years on TV, MAC Cosmetics is launching a Marge Simpson-inspired makeup line due out this fall. The color collection includes eye shadow palettes, blush, lip glosses, nail stickers, and of course, false eyelashes. The colors are bold and bright, just like Marge's signature look, with cute names like "pink Sprinkles" (which we can't wait to get our hands on) and "Sideshow You." Look for the Marge Simpson collection starting September 4.

Dior-cuir-cannage

The house of Dior is perhaps as known for its fragrances as it is for its fashion (the Miss Dior Cherie commercial directed by Sofia Coppola was advertising perfection, oui?), so we were obviously excited to learn about a new Dior fragrance. Cuir Cannage is the latest addition created by the house's resident perfumer François Demachy, with notes inspired by the iconic Lady Dior handbag.  "I wanted it to smell of leather, but there is also [a hint of] lipstick, tissues, and imagination," said Demachy. The new perfume retails for $275.

Iggy Azalea

Two years ago we were practically skipping around the office when we learned that MTV was bringing back it's fashion-centric show House of Style, and supermodels Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss were slated to host. Sadly the show was online-only and last just one season. Well, we're officially skipping around the office again because we've just learned that the show is coming back, this time with Iggy Azalea as host! This season contains eight episodes, which will start airing on August 4 and end on the eve of the Video Music Awards. Iggy Azalea is the first musician to host, following in the footsteps of supermodels Cindy Crawford, Rebecca Romijm, and Molly Sims.

Kate Spade Saturday Seamed Dress

Our idea of the perfect summer dress? Short and swingy with a fun print, and bonus points if it has pockets; basically, the Kate Spade Saturday Seamed Dress in Crosswalk Stripe. The stripes are super fun and playful and the circle skirt makes it extra swingy, and since it's black and white we can accessorize with our brightest and boldest colors, or mix it with other fun prints (think florals, leopard, or eye-catching geometric prints). And yes, it does have pockets!

Alexis Bittar Geometric Ribbon Cuff Bracelet

There are a few fashion staples that we always keep in rotation, and statement jewelry is one of them. We can already tell this Alexis Bittar Geometric Ribbon Cuff Bracelet is going to get a lot of wear because it's equal parts glamorous and edgy, making it the perfect accent to just about every outfit we can come up with. We can rock it now with sweet, summery LWDs and maxi dresses, and come September it's going to look fab with all of fall's jewel tones and heavy knits.
