The singer looked totally quirky in a collared white lace dress, but her styling gave it that extra oomph for sure!

KP added to the look with black ruffled socks and pink mary janes AND very intensely purple lipstick.

Oh, wait, she also had tangerine nails and a braided updo — the works!

Fashion aside, the 31-year-old also joined with Staples to donate $1 million to the DonorsChoose.org charity, which to date has funded more than 700,000 classroom projects.

Nice!

Keep doing good work while looking colorful, girl!

Lena Dunham

Lena Dunham is on the mend!

As you may recall, back in November, the 29-year-old penned an intimate look into her painful struggle with what has now been diagnosed and treated as endometriosis — a disorder that causes the lining of the uterus to grow outside of the uterus. In March, the Girls star underwent surgery after having an ovarian cyst rupture.

Needless to say, it hasn't been an easy journey — but things are beginning to look up.

Lena, Allison, and Padma look glam at the Blossom Ball.

All glammed out!

At the Blossom Ball in New York Tuesday, Lena Dunham, Padma Lakshmi, and Allison Williams all scrubbed up real good!

The event benefited the Endometriosis Foundation, and it's no surprise that the Girls creator was there, as she has publicly revealed she suffers from the condition.

The actress was looking healthy and glowing in a white blazer and cut-out top worn with blue and green print silk pants.

Now the pants are not so bad but Lena's accessories were definitely unnecessary. She could've gone without the necklace and drop earrings, and the overall ensemble would've been much more polished.

Padma and Allison kept their accessories to a minimum, and instead let their glamorous gowns do the talking.

The Top Chef host and Girls actress picked a backless silver shimmering number and a navy blue sheer long-sleeved lace dress, respectively.

Thoughts???

Stephen Curry may be an NBA all-star, but his Connect Four game could use a little fine tuning!

The Golden State Warriors star faced off against Barack Obama in a round of the classic Hasbro game — and things didn't go so well for the athlete!

The two put their game faces on to promote the President's My Brother's Keeper initiative — which launched in 2014 to help disadvantaged youth, specifically boys and young men of color.

And even though Curry brought his intensity (and mouth guard) with him, he was no match for POTUS — but the two had a TON of fun doing other mentor-mentee type activities!

On Sunday, Official White House photographer Pete Souza a video Instagram, featuring outtakes from their day of fun:

Bradley Cooper Chokes Up While Discussing His Late Father At The Launch Of Sean Parker's Innovative Cancer Research Foundation

We rarely ever see Bradley Cooper so raw.

At the launch of Sean Parker's AMAZING cancer research foundation, the Parker Institute For Cancer Immunotherapy, Bradley opened up about losing his father to lung cancer in 2011. Understandably, the loss is still incredibly difficult to talk about.

In a brave move, Cooper used his father's passing as an example for why we need more resources for people diagnosed with the deadly disease. Even though the actor had a ton of resources and money to help his dad, it was still an exhaustive process. Given how difficult it was for Brad to deal with, he expressed awe and sympathy for those who aren't as fortunate.

Becoming emotional as he spoke, B.C. recalled caring for his sick poppa:

"I just want to tell you about my father Charles J. Cooper, he passed away from lung cancer in 2011. I was in a very lucky position because I was able to put everything on hold in all aspects of my life and completely focus on taking care of him."

Even with all of Brad's good fortune, the situation was less than ideal:

Here's How The Blind Side's Quinton Aaron Dedicated His Life To Anti-Bullying

Yes, Quinton Aaron!!

The Blind Side actor has put his notoriety from starring in the Oscar-nominated film alongside Sandra Bullock to good use with his very own anti-bullying organization.

Back in 2012, the 31-year-old set out to make a difference by forming the The Quinton Aaron Foundation to help raise awareness about the realities of bullying and to share his personal stories.

He told People:

"I've been bullied before. And I know how important it is to give hope to kids who are going through the same thing."

The actor teamed up with Justice co-star Eric Martinez to hold rallies at schools, churches, and workplaces around the country spreading their message of acceptance and tolerance to over 300,000 kids so far.

This is a life's mission for this dynamic duo as more than 160,000 kids stay home from school out of fear of being bullied. So sad.

Aaron expressed:

"We have to listen to what they're going through. And provide resources for them."

Martinez — who was also a victim of bullying — added:

"It happens daily in schools and workplaces all over the country. It shouldn't be ignored. The rate of students committing suicide and reaching out for help is alarming. A lot of times, they just need someone who will listen."

Even though the numbers are staggering, Q.A. says he will not give up on the mission:

"It's something that will always be important to me. Every kid needs to know that they're accepted and heard. That's why I'll keep doing this."

Go, go, go! We LOVES this!
