You Can Soon Smell Like FKA Twigs

She's launching a perfume. 

FKA Twigs will soon be a fragrance creator. But unlike other celebrity fragrances, don't expect this perfume to be a gigantic billboard-and-sexy-advertising-driven endeavor. WWD reports that she'll be working with the indie perfume label House of Matriarch (whose site says, "We believe in the power of fragrance to connect us to the past, harness our being to the present, and help us to write the future") and the brand's co-founder and perfumer Christi Meshell to create the scent.  

It won't even be sold in stores. As Meshell said, "She doesn’t want to sell it at any retailer. Overnight, she’s going to add it to her Web site." It seems like her fans will have to buy the fragrance without trying it out first. Watch for the scent, which surely won't smell like the usual candy-laden celebrity fragrance, to drop later this year. 

Beyoncé Has Some Amazing Disco Pants

They're crocodile leather.

After wearing a latex Givenchy dress on the Met Gala red carpet, Beyoncé headed to Balmain's Gilded Lily after-party in some magnificent silver Loewe pants. How magnificent? They're croc-embossed metallic leather and they resemble a disco ball (not a cold piece of trout, like Taylor Swift's dress). These are all yours, for $2,300.

How to Listen Like a Teen

Carly Rae Jepsen makes the perfect music for people who can't quite grow up.

Outside Terminal 5 in March, a bouncer corralled Carly Rae Jepsen fans into parallel rows. “It’s not single file,” he shouted. “You’re not in school anymore.” And, for the most part, they didn’t seem to be: His colleagues checked IDs and appeared to hand out more wristbands than not. The teens in line — there were a few — shrugged and followed instructions. They seemed mature for their age. But maybe all teens seem mature to me, because the biggest teens I know are all technically grown-ups. Jepsen herself is not a teenager; she is a 30-year-old woman. Reviewers sometimes frame this as a catch or a dirty secret, but it’s entirely consistent with her appeal: She sings for teens, but also grown-ups who live like teens because they don’t know how else to do it.

Lady Gaga Prepped for the Met Gala With The Real Housewives

And it took a total of six products for her cherry-red lips.

In a night of questionable outfits, Lady Gaga's was fairly tame. It was a throwback of sorts to the pantsless, metallic Gaga from the early aughts. The most lively part of her Met Gala look: the hair and makeup forged with the help of makeup artist Sarah Tanno and hairstylist Frederic Aspiras.

The Drugstore Makeup Jourdan Dunn Used to Get Met Gala–Ready

Ball on a budget.

The red carpet was bathed in silver at last night's Met Gala, and Jourdan Dunn was no exception. The model and Balmain-army recruit wore the metallic color head-to-toe — literally. "We wanted to do something fun and different. My hairstylist Renda suggested this idea and I thought it was brilliant," she told the Cut when explaining her silver wig.

J.J. Abrams Has Figured Out the Key to the Met Gala

Forget everyone.

If you could fuse a high-tech gadget with any fashion accessory, what would it be? The Cut posed this question to celebrities on the Met Gala red carpet last night while surrounded by an array of very silver, robotic fashions trying to do just that: Katy Perry's Tamagotchi-Prada dress, Zayn's cyborg arm sleeves, and Will.I.Am's incognito mask.

Meanwhile, in Australia ...

The Australian national rugby team frolics at the beach.

Weeeeeee-oooooooo weeeeee-oooooooo weeeee-ooooooooo.

Rita Ora and Katy Perry Trolled the Met Gala With ‘Not Becky’ Pins

Was Beyoncé behind it?

Who is Becky With the Good Hair? Is Becky me? Is Becky you? Who knows! But with Beyoncé the star of last night's Met Gala, every could-be Becky took the opportunity to clear her name. The public schmoozing began, of course, with Beyoncé's No. 1 fan Rita Ora photobombing the queen for a Snapchat declaring the two family. (Blue Ivy will have final say on that.) But in case you still think she's one xoJane memoir away from slipping on spilled tea, Ora also used her post-Gala outfit to again declare to the world that she's not Becky. See that pin? It says "Not Becky," so cased closed.

Turns Out All You Need Is Garbage Bags, Tinfoil, and Toilet Paper to Dress Like You Attended the Met Gala

Tinfoil, garbage bags, and toilet paper were all in last night.

João Paulo, a YouTube and social-media personality from Brazil, regularly posts photos in which he re-creates high-fashion looks using everyday household objects like toilet paper and bed sheets. They’re hilariously makeshift, but also pretty impressive considering the materials he’s working with.

Sex Offender Owen Labrie’s Professor Compared Him to Joan of Arc

Labrie's professor put his thoughts into a letter that was presented in court. 

Last year, Owen Labrie — who was accused of raping a 15-year-old while he was a senior and she was a freshman at St. Paul’s School — was found not guilty of the alleged felony sexual assault. He was, however, convicted of misdemeanor sexual assault charges for being involved with a minor, as well as felony computer charges, and was sentenced to a year in jail. Ever since, he has broken his court-ordered curfew time, thus resulting in his bail being revoked. In April, he asked for a new trial.

Why Men Are Invading the Women’s Restrooms at Target

More than 1 million people are protesting the store's support of equal rights.

Two weeks ago, in support of equal rights, Target announced it would allow transgender people to use store bathrooms and fitting rooms that align with their gender identities. One day later, a Mississippi-based religious group launched an online petition to boycott Target, calling the measure (which was enacted in support of the federal Equality Act) "a danger to wives and daughters."

Amy Schumer Will Not Let Thigh Chafing Ruin a Good Night

No thigh gap, no problem.

Despite the Met Gala's Manus x Machina theme, even celebrities are more manus than machina and not immune to the dangers of thigh chafing. Amy Schumer certainly did not forget that Gwyneth Paltrow once said, "[The Met Gala] is boiling," and prepped for chafing accordingly.

Schumer posted an Instagram video showing her swiping deodorant where the sun doesn't shine. As she said, #NoThighGapNoProblem. 

Silicon Valley CEO Debuts Her Trophy Boyfriend

The year's most fabulous couple steps out for the first time.

Silicon Valley CEO Anne Wojcicki made her public debut with trophy boyfriend and Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez last night. The two were first spotted canoodling at a Super Bowl party in February, and now it appears they've made it official.

Both have had high-profile relationships in the past, of course — Wojcicki divorced Google co-founder Sergey Brin last year, and A-Rod has dated Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, and everyone else who looks like Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson. Monday night, however, they officially clinched the title of 2016's Most Fabulous New Couple, edging out those lesser pairings who decided to wear matching Tamagotchis to the "technology in fashion"-themed event. 

Meet the First Superstars of the Beyoncé Generation

Chloe and Halle are 16 and 17. They have fans in Sasha, Malia, and Michelle Obama, and a fairy-godmother mentor in Queen Bey. Which means anything is possible.

You were not expecting this, but here you stand, transfixed, in the doorway of a Hollywood rehearsal studio, your throat clamping up and your chest tightening, watching 16- and 17-year-old sisters Halle and Chloe Bailey sing a single word, “Hallelujah,” in gorgeous, repeating crescendos, like a church choir sending a dying loved one off into the light. Those harmonized “Hallelujahs” aren’t even a song, just their way of saying grace. You are not religious. But you will start to cry.

Jennifer Hudson and Her Tulle Had the Best Time at the Met Gala

Just a gal and her Met Gala gown.

Jennifer Hudson wore a white H&M gown to the Met Gala, and though it wasn't quite as Cinderella-esque as Claire Danes's light-up dress, it certainly held its own. And she had all of the photo moments to prove it. Ariana Grande had quite the tulle ensemble at the Time 100 gala last week, but J.Hud's Met Gala–tulle game might have just won out.
