WATCH: James Corden drops Beyonce parody
Prince George had a very good day today.
Today the royal family attended a garden party for military families in Carcross, B.C.
Prince George didn't look like he was up for it.
But then he saw this sweet Nemo-looking bubble gun. "What could this be?" we suspect he thought, while a ray of sunlight danced off his golden hair.
"Do I like these transparent spherical things?" we presume he wondered.
The apex of joy and delight.
"I'll be taking this with me."

Plus, the other moments we loved from day two of Paris Fashion Week.
The delicate beauty of the melting ice sculptures at Dries Van Noten was likely the most photographed thing on day two of Paris Fashion Week. After the show, instead of running out as guests usually do, most of the crowd stayed behind to touch and capture videos and close-up shots of the beautiful frozen flower arrangements. As for me? Guilty as charged.
In true magpie spirit, the Margiela show was a mash-up of themes I’m still trying to figure out. Futuristic yogis? Hunger Games TV presenters (with headsets and all)? Business women on their way to scuba lessons? Whoever they were, I wanted to go wherever they were going.
For the first time ever, women are taking charge as creative directors of historic houses including Lanvin and Dior. Considering all the romance we’re seeing on the Parisian runways this season, this feels like the perfect moment to have a woman in charge. At Lanvin, Bouchra Jarrar showed us how soft tailoring and (very) sheer dresses can blend to perfection for a look that's comfortable and chic – what every woman wants.
I loved seeing musician/model and familiar face Julia Cumming on the Rochas runway. She embodied the youthful, romantic fragility of the entire collection. Contrasting colours, tulle detailing, tiny sweaters, pleated ’50s skirts and opera length gloves looked perfectly sweet together.

“I imagined Marie Antoinette at the gym.”
Rihanna showed her much anticipated Spring 2017 collection for Fenty x Puma today, and it had all of the bad gal boldness and girly glamour we were hoping for.
Set at Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild in Paris, the backdrop was complete with ornate chandeliers, and the front row was full of Victoria’s Secret models, including Jourdan Dunn, Sara Sampaio and Doutzen Kroes.
As for the fashion: for her second show Rihanna kept the slouchy silhouettes from the original collection, but introduced a whole new colour scheme.
The clothes were an assortment of pastel and sorbet shades, from pink and nude to mint green and purple. We also spotted new details like corsets, hoodies, layered pearl chokers like those seen at Y/Project, and lace do-rags.
The overall theme, as explained by Rihanna herself post-show: Marie Antoinette at the gym. This collection certainly isn’t for the faint of heart, but we’re betting it will fly off the shelves anyway.
