Within the last few months, pop culture's newest power duo Lana del Rey and Azealia Banks have already captivated Mulberry, Alexander Wang, and Prada, but that's only the beginning for the fashion industry darlings. Now that the musicians have big-time designers eating out of the palms of their (well-manicured) hands, they're setting out to conquer the mass market, too. Cult Irish denim and t-shirt label The Silver Factory has just rolled out its new "Lana" and "Azealia" namesake jean shorts, two cutoffs that take cues from each girl's very different fashion senses. According to the brand, the washed-blue "Lana" is influenced by the New York songstress's retro style in its basic cut with dip-dyed, faded ends, making them classically All-American topped off with a sexy twist. The "Azealia's," on the other hand, are LOUD- just like the Harlem rapper herself.

It's crazy to think it's been almost a year since we first told you about Karl Lagerfeld and Snoop Dogg's forthcoming music video, but now the day has finally come- and trust us when we say it's 100% worth the wait. Tapped by Europop star Jean-Roch, the oddest couple ever lends their swag to his latest single, which is a musical ode to the luxe beach town of St. Tropez (yep, it's all as ridiculous as it sounds..) The video for the eponymous track rolls out with grand movie-style opening credits, before settling above the clouds where the white-suited Kaiser meets up with Jean-Roch and informs him that heaven's not the only version of paradise. Spoiler alert: St. Tropez is, too. That's when the vid quickly cuts back to Earth, where Snoop's holding things down by the water in his signature pigtails and ready to fist-pump up a storm.
Taylor Swift and Dianna Agron have a floral dinner date in LA.
Along with their shiny blonde hair, crossover music and film careers, and obsession with all things girly, here's another thing Taylor Swift and Dianna Agron share: the pair loves to dress up. Case in point? Just a few weeks ago the friends celebrated Shirley MacLaine's birthday by donning old-fashioned outfits, hats, and even floral wreaths for a vintage-inspired shindig (all together now: awwww). Now they're at it again, this time sporting matching floral dresses for a dinner date at Dominic's Restaurant in West Hollywood. The girls took cues from the Spring/Summer runways in garden party-style frocks and subtle red lips for a fresh, natural look. Taylor opted for short sleeves, pairing her green and taupe printed dress with adorable tan leather sandals and topped off with a sleek straight half-up hairstyle. Dianna went with a sleeveless, boldly-patterned knee-length number that's perfectly complemented by her bright blue flats. The result is easy, cute, and proof that sometimes being matchy-matchy (with your friends, at least) isn't such a bad thing.
Kristen Stewart for "Elle" magazine.

No, your eyes aren't tricking you: that's two Kristen Stewarts in the June issue of Elle magazine, proving that double the K.Stew really is double the fun. The Snow White and the Huntsman star may work the bombshell thing on the cover, but flip inside and it’s a different story altogether. In the spread, dubbed “She’s The Man,” the actress plays with opposites, channeling her inner dude alongside a more feminine version of herself dressed in a seductive Tom Ford crocodile bra and leather pencil skirt. It's a total study in contrasts, taking cues from old school gender-bending films like Victor/Victoria and retro fashion icons like Loulou de La Falaise (the YSL muse and inspiration behind the designer's trademark "Le Smoking Suit"). The male version of Kristen rocks a Balenciaga wool double-breasted jacket and silk pants topped off with Alexander Wang shoes- all men's, obviously- and we've got to admit that even as a guy, she looks pretty rad. In the story, she dishes about her first experience with movies, the annoying parts of fame, and why she "loves living in different worlds."
We’ll always know Jessica Alba as the kickass star of Fantastic Four and we'll forever associate Bjork with that infamous swan dress (can you really blame us?!), but turns out these celebrities are way more than Hollywood heavyweights; according to Fast Company they’re sucessful entrepreneous as well. The publication has just unveiled its 100 Most Creative People in Business list, and some of our favorite celebs and industry icons have made the cut (!!). Drumroll, please...
Alba scored the #17 slot for her eco-concious baby brand The Honest Company, which she started after her youngest daughter Haven was born. The luxe line of diapers, laundry detergent and soap reportedly take influence from everything from French soaps to Alexander McQueen, making these babies the most pampered kids around. Fashion fave Pamela Love was named #93, thanks to the NYC designer's line of jagged, hard-edged rings, stone bracelets, and tough cuffs. We're major fans of her (literally) drop dead gorgeous collections, so it's about time the rest of the biz is giving her a proper shoutout, too.
Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron both wore see-through black dresses to the London premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman.

There aren't many things that make us stop whatever we're doing and gape in awe, but seriously, it's impossible not to obsess over the photos from last night's London premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman. I mean, just look at Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron on the red (uh, grass?) carpet and you'll see what we mean. The co-stars of the film, which hits theaters June 1, looked jaw-dropping gorgeous in their dramatic sheer black gowns.
Kristen Stewart took a break from her trademark sneakers and cutoffs uniform and pulled out all the stops for this major event, wearing an intricate Marchesa floor-length dress. Straight from the Fall 2012 runway, the long-sleeved gown is covered in black lace, making it the perfect hybrid of goth, romantic, and seriously unexpected glamour. We're not used to seeing K.Stew baring all, but thanks to the tastefully see-through skirt and embellishment on the torso, she 100% pulls it off. While the dress is amazing enough as is, she topped off the look with a wispy bun accented by- wait for it-gold chains. One word: knockout. But staying true to form, she did tell us at the premiere that she was looking forward to slipping out of the dress and putting on something a little more comfy. Even in ulta-glam mode, she's still the K.Stew we know and love.
Zac Efron shows his Lakers some love.

Guys (and girls) everywhere, break out your pencils and take note: Zac Efron is here to teach us all a major lesson in sports style. The actor turned out to support his L.A. Lakers as they took on the Denver Nuggets this weekend wearing the home team's purple and gold colors. Sounds like every other basketball fan in the universe, right? WRONG. Rather than rocking the tired mesh jersey look (or even worse, a jersey over a white t-shirt...yikes), he opted for a vintage-inspired tee printed with Kobe Bryant's face, peeking out from under a couple of layers. He also showed his support with a Lakers cap, but kept the rest of his outfit pretty low-key with cool dude closet staples like a plaid shirt, leather jacket, and basic white sneakers. Clearly he's traded the polished pompadour look for a little bit of scruff, and we love it.
Which all-beef outfit do you like best?

The Meat Dress: it's baaaaack! That infamous raw beef frock that Lady Gaga wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards has officially returned, two years later. Shutterbug Terry Richardson has captured the singer rocking a shorter, girlier version of the all-beef ensemble at her Born This Way Ball this weekend in Tokyo, looking quite at home faux-hanging from a hook onstage. And appropriately enough, she's donning the strapless number flanked by-what else?- hanging meat. In typical Gaga fashion, she's topped off the over-the-top look with meat-looking red booties (we hear they're actually made of leather) and a sleek ponytail. And let's be real: although she's rolled out some pretty insane outfits since that 2010 jaw-dropping performance, nothing has ever come close to touching the insanity of the Franc Fernandez-designed original creation... until now.

Considering people have been doing the denim-on-denim thing for a few seasons now, isn't it about time someone took this '90s-inspired trend up a notch?! Luckily, Urbanears is here to help...and no, we're not talking about Britney and Justin's matching ensembles circa early 2000s (although you've got to admit-it was a pretty epic fashion statement). The Stockholm-based audio company has just debuted a raw denim edition of its classic Plattan Plus easy listening staple. Just like the original, the new version comes complete with ear cushions, a mini remote control, and collapsible design (which mean it won't take up any room in your purse, score!). Plus, in a stroke of total genius, it's installed with a special "zound" plug on the earcap so you can listen with a friend.
