It’s all about David Beckham in the March 2016 issue of British GQ. The publication celebrates the 40-year-old by delving into the archives to explore the many looks of Beckham throughout the years. David’s mug will grace five collectible covers.

David Beckham really has a golden aura about him these days, a star quality burnished by a dedication to self-improvement, a savvy series of brand endorsements and the not inconsiderable fact that the public as a whole appear to have taken him to their hearts,” Dylan Jones, British GQ Editor

In addition to British GQ’s tribute, an exhibition at London’s Phillips Galleries will showcase some of his most iconic photographs taken by artists including Damien Hirst, Marc Hom, Nadav Kander, Annie Leibovitz, Vincent Peters, Mario Sorrenti and Paul Wetherell. It’ll be interesting to see how his image has evolved over the years. Mr. Posh Spice certainly loves to experiment with his look.

Check out the other covers below and weigh in on which is your favorite one afterward.

As always, the 2016 Golden Globes were a star-studded affair. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association sure love their celebrities. They’re definitely the biggest star f*ckers around ;)Naturally, the organization set up a photobooth to take pics of all the big names in attendance.

Famed photographer duo Inez & Vinoodh snapped stunning black and white photographs of all those who appeared on the stage- both winners and presenters alike. Check out below some of my favorite images of Lady Gaga, Taraji P. Henson and Jennifer Lawrence to name a few.

For their 99th issue, V Magazine brought on Lady Gaga as guest editor. Mother Monster took her role very seriously. During her stint, she created a record-making sixteen covers, dedicating each one to those who have inspired her music and fashion. Long-time collaborators Inez & Vinoodh snapped the images.

One of the covers features a naked Gaga with her fiance Taylor Kinney postcoital. “We made love on this canvas on a Sunday in Chicago. We made love amidst chaos. We talked about shootings. We made love amidst terrorism. And we talked about how people’s hearts are also suffering all over the world as they watch and witness a swell of violence. We made love amidst violence,” she revealed about the intimate photo.

Check it out below, along with some of the other covers.

chic-ill-be-there

When disco is mentioned, one can’t help but think of the iconic band, CHIC. They churned out some of the greatest hits from the genre including “Le Freak” and “Good Times.”

Nile Rodgers is the only surviving member of the band. He resurrected the group with a new lineup. The latest incarnation of the legendary disco-funk group just dropped a killer new track titled “I’ll Be There” that will no doubt become a club hit.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss stars in the sexy visual. She connects the past and the present, as explained by Rodgers. She visualizes the past looking at old school vinyl – then gets dressed and goes out to a current party to meet up with Stephen Galloway and the current ?CHIC? lineup happens to be play. The clip directed by Inez and Vinoodh also features vintage footage of the original CHIC members.

The video is being released today because it’s the vernal equinox. What’s that you ask? It’s when day and night are the same length—and because there’s a solar eclipse in parts of the Northern Hemisphere. I’m already obsessed with the single and the video. Check it out below.

Björk just unveiled the latest music video off her critically-acclaimed album, Vulnicura. As expected, it’s another wonderfully wacky eye-pleasing visual trip. The 49-year-old Icelandic singer never ceases to entertain her fans.

Björk puts on a leather body suit accessorized with an architecturally-stunning yellow headdress. It reminds me of a dandelion in some respects. Frequent Lady Gaga contributors, Inez and Vinoodh directed the clip. Here’s what they recently told Noisey about their video.

“Björk’s character for ‘Lionsong’ had to be smooth like a spider waiting in her web and seductive like a Balinese dancer cast in bronze. She is seen as if under a microscope, baring her heart while luring us inside the bloody galaxy of her own wound.”

Check out the visual below. It’s quintessential Björk.

selena-gomez-v-magazine

Whenever you hear the term ‘baby prostitute‘ from Mean Girls, do you think of Selena Gomez or Ariana Grande? For me, the 22-year-old baby-faced “The Heart Wants What It Wants” singer immediately comes to mind. ‘Human cupcake‘ is a far more apt description for Grande, don’t you think?

Like so many former child stars before her, Gomez goes topless on a magazine cover to show she’s all grown up. Photographer duo Inez & Vinoodh snapped the editorial for V magazine. Check out more photos below, along with more quotes from the accompanying interview conducted by James Franco.

On Her Next Boyfriend

“I think the next time [I have a boyfriend] will be much different…which will definitely not be anytime soon. That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more.”

Rihanna Premieres Moody FourFiveSeconds Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Rihanna premiered the music video for “FourFiveSeconds” yesterday but since we had some technical difficulties, I could only share it with you today. If you’re not a fan of the polarizing song, the moody clip probably won’t win you over.

RiRi rocks a vintage Sean John denim jacket in the black and white clip. She previously explained why she chose the all-American look. “Denim never goes out of style. It’s classic, it’s iconic, just like the fucking Beatles,” she shared.

Meanwhile Paul McCartney strums his acoustic guitar in several scenes while Kanye West does what Kanye West does best… overacts and gets dramatic.

The best parts of the Inez and Vinoodh-directed clip are when the three appear on the screen together. If they were wearing Gap clothing, this could easily pass for an ad campaign for the brand. Check out the video below.

This shoot must’ve felt really weird for Rihanna. She’s typically not wearing this much clothing. Am I right or am I right?

“In front of the camera, she makes you feel like she is the only girl in the world,” said Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing in WWD. “When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”

The “Diamonds” singer makes her debut as Balmain’s latest celebrity ambassador in the first batch of photos for their Spring 2014 ad campaign. RiRi channels 90s realness with her curly bob while wearing a leather jumpsuit, super sexy houndstooth suit, gold chain link top and pink kimono-like robe. Frequent Lady Gaga photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin snapped the visuals.

I have to say, I’m liking this curly coif and subtle natural-looking makeup on Rihanna. Haute couture really suits her. Let’s face it, love Rihanna, but she can sometimes look a little trashy. Check out more images below.
