Unh! Ever since the comical Pikotaro — who dons an iconic yellow outfit with a leopard-print scarf — came up with the catchy Pen Pineapple Apple Pen (PPAP) song, his popularity has skyrocketed. Apart from moving into the role of a producer, the Japanese comedian also recently had the honour of performing at the official state reception when President Donald Trump visited Japan. Despite his success now, Pikotaro was previously known by his other stage name, Daimaou Kosaka.

Moschino wants you to get lit. During the the fall 2016 runway presentation on Thursday, the often controversial Italian design house released a new capsule collection – featuring cigarettes. Guests sitting in the front row at the show received a “fashion kills” iPhone case, which resembled an open package of cigarettes. This theme continued throughout the show with cigarette-inspired accessories, including handbags and earrings, clothing covered in burn marks and actual smoke.
Consider your Black History Month MADE. Beyoncé just released a new video for her song “Formation,” and it is just the pro-black banger we’ve been waiting for. Set against a New Orleans backdrop, Bey combines powerful imagery (like standing on a New Orleans PD cop car) with even more powerful lyrics (”I like my negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils”) that leave no doubt – she is unapologetically black, and you will deal with it. Consider all wigs snatched.
Winter Storm Jonas had singles (and probably a few non-singles) all over the Northeast searching for the perfect buddy to snuggle (and probably do a few other things) with as the storm raged outside. But it looks like one woman in Morgantown, West Virgina may have been regretting hooking up with her designated blizzard boo.
Khloé Kardashian has made no bones about celebrating her newly svelte figure. On Wednesday she was spotted in New York in a figure-hugging Azzedine Alaia catsuit, while just the day before, she wore a black tuxedo version with sheer paneling by Prabal Gurung.

In it, the authors claim that watching high-quality television dramas — things like Mad Men or The West Wing — can increase your emotional intelligence. Related: How Watching Reality TV Might Bring Out the Best in Us In the paper, the authors describe two experiments that led them to their pro-TV conclusion. In one, they asked about 100 people to first watch either a television drama (Mad Men or The West Wing) or a nonfiction program (How the Universe Works or Shark Week: Jaws Strikes Back). Afterward, all of the participants took a test psychologists often use to measure emotional intelligence: They’re shown 36 pairs of eyes and are told to judge the emotion each pair is displaying.
2015 was the year of the celebrity Girl Squad. We’ve gawked as Taylor Swift and her gang of supermodels strut in combat lingerie in “Bad Blood,” admired Tavi Gevinson and her precocious and talented group of young feminists, envied Lena Dunham and her real life Girls, and Instagram-stalked Man Repeller Leandra Medine and her #GirlBoss clique. It appears that female friendships — and finding a sisterhood of your own — has never had a stronger or more media-hungry moment, but even before hashtags existed, female friendships were prominent in pop culture. This week, the cast of the 1995 film based on Ann M.

Photo: CBS Hillary Clinton stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to chat about her campaign and remained very diplomatic through it all, as politicians tend to be. If she gets the Democratic nomination, Clinton could possibly be up against one of the very controversial GOP candidates, Donald Trump or Ben Carson, both of whom are decidedly not as experienced as Clinton is in the political landscape. We guess when you’re a political pro like Hillary Clinton, it’s probably all the same anyway. Of course, no October interview with a politician would be complete without the obligatory questions about Halloween, in this case, the suggested DIY Hillary Clinton Halloween costumes her team put out, which are basically Hillary’s greatest fashion hits.
Be it in movies or a haunted house, Halloween is all about a good scare: turning a dark corner and running into a cackling corpse, finding a bloodied head hanging in your closet or opening the door to a knife-wielding zombie.

Casaba Melon This was the melon of choice to create the sound of Janet Leigh being stabbed over and over again in the famous Psycho shower scene. According to the book, “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho,” by Stephen Rebello, when it came to creating the sound effects for the stabbing, Hitchcock sent for a watermelon.
When it comes to red carpet dressing, Cate Blanchett loves to take risks—something she made all the more clear on the press junket circuit while promoting her latest film, Truth. At a recent screening in Los Angeles, the Oscar-winning Aussie chose a white knit Proenza Schouler dress with a high neck and bare shoulders, fresh off the New York runway—paired with crisscrossed Louboutin pumps, an easy updo, and glowing makeup. But she wasn’t the only star with an eye for Proenza this week: Fargo’s leading lady, Kirsten Dunst, showed up to the Season 2 premiere of the hit FX show wearing a sleeveless, olive green leather dress with ruffled hem, also by the label. From Zendaya’s sleek, minimalist Elizabeth and James dress to Lily-Rose Depp’s shoulder-baring, technicolor Chanel top, here are the rest of this week’s best dressed.
