One of New York’s most anticipated and whimsical winter traditions—the Barneys holiday windows—were unveiled last night, to much ado! This year, the high-end retailer partnered with Disney to recreate some famous fashion faces in animated form for its Electric Holiday, and plenty of stars (real and cartoon alike) came out for the festivities. Sarah Jessica Parker put on her mouse ears and did a little ditty with Minnie, for starters. Click through to see who else partied last night!
On tonight’s all-new episode of Glee, the cast will be recreating scenes and performing songs from Grease. We caught up with Darren Criss at Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s Tie The Knot launch party last night to get his take on the “Glease” episode. “It’s definitely a new favorite,” Criss told InStyle.com. “If you’re a Grease fan, you’re going to love it. If you don’t know anything about Grease, you’re going to want to watch Grease.” Sounds (and looks) like viewers are in for a ride (note the “Greased Lighting” preview above). This week will also see the return of Kate Hudson as Lea Michele’s dance instructor, Cassandra July. Hudson, along with Naya Rivera and newcomer Alex Newell, will be singing “There Are Worse Things I Could Do,” and Criss can’t get enough of it. “It’s so good. It’s wonderful!” he said. So, grab your hair gel, leather pants, and poodle skirts—this screams sing-along. Glee‘s “Glease” episode airs tonight at 9/8c on FOX.

Lana Del Rey has jumped on the bangs bandwagon! The singer unveiled her brow-skimming fringe in London on Tuesday, and while the jury is still out on whether or not it’s faux, we think the cut is a perfect complement to her retro-inspired style. This marks the second hair change for Del Rey this year, as she switched her signature copper color for a darker shade in September. Between Lana, Beyoncé, and Britney Spears, it seems like bangs are having a major moment among music’s finest! We want to know: Do you like her new look? Tell us in the comments!

If you’ve noticed a change in Jennifer Lawrence’s style of late, you’re onto something! The Hunger Games heroine, who was recently named as a face of Christian Dior, has been beefing up her sartorial status thanks to fashion stylist extraordinaire, Rachel Zoe. While promoting her upcoming film, Silver Linings Playbook, Lawrence traded in the shimmering floor-length gowns and sexy dresses like the gold lamé Prabal Gurung number she donned to promote The Hunger Games in favor of a more cutting-edge aesthetic. For the New York premiere of Silver Linings Playbook, the actress wore an off-the-runway Dior by Raf Simons Spring 2013 noir suit that exposed her black bra, punctuated by a bright pink Dior clutch. With the awards season just around the corner, we can’t wait to see what Lawrence will step out in for the red carpets to come! Some Rachel Zoe designs, perhaps? Tell us: Are you excited to see Jennifer taking a page from the celebrity stylist’s playbook?

After their impossibly adorable combination engagement-slash-charity bow tie line announcement in September, Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and fiancée Justin Mikita have officially launched Tie The Knot! The couple celebrated the collection, which raises funds for marriage equality, in Los Angeles last night, and talked to InStyle.com about the inspiration behind the Ferguson-designed line. “This first collection has the aesthetic of throwing everything against the wall and seeing what sticks,” Ferguson joked. “Honestly, I’m absolutely new to this, so it’s trial and error with this first one. When we do our next collection, I’ll try and do something a little more cohesive with more of a through line—’a story’ as Tim Gunn would say.” Mikita added: “The one common thread is that they’re all very loud and colorful with quirky patterns. We don’t have any solids.“ You can shop the colorful bow ties ($25 each) now, exclusively at TheTieBar.com/JTF. Additionally, the couple has shared that the first official beneficiary for the ties is the Human Rights Campaign; they will donate up to $200,000 from proceeds to the organization. Dapper duds and civil rights—it’s an unstoppable union!
