Me and Prabal
Photo: Alex Catarinella

I met my insanely talented buddy Prabal Gurung two summers ago at a gay dive bar in the East Village. Being the consummate professional fashion blogger, I had no clue he was a designer, let alone "this generation's Oscar De La Renta", as I’ve now heard it be whispered. I later learned—via, like, every fashion-outlet-in-existence the next morning—that the cause for PG's perma-smile and arms-flailing dance-floor takeover alongside his fashiony posse (who he playfully calls his "sisters") was that he'd just gotten the news hours before that Michelle Obama had rocked one of his designs. NBD. Since then, I've had the opportunity to faint onto the catwalk for two spectacular Prabal Gurung shows. Yesterday was my third, for his buzzed-about Fall 2012 collection, and you best believe it when I say, girrrrl, it was EVERYTHING and a bag of Swarovski-encrusted chips.

Geri Halliwell Union Jack

In tween-dreams-coming-true news, the artist formerly/always known as Ginger Spice, Geri Halliwell, has designed a line of duds for UK retailer Next inspired by THE infamous itty-bitty Union Jack shkirt (shirt + skirt). But did the collection pass our especially high Girl Power sartorial standards? TBH, we were kinda bummed that the 2012 shkirt got upgraded to a sparkly above-the-knee dress (sue us for liking a little thigh!), but it still elicits a pretty prominent zig-a-zig-gahhh. There's also an off-the-shoulder shirt for you casual cuties, and a bohemian-at-the-beach number that Rachel Zoe probably diiied over already. But really, leave it to the bikini to win back over our glittery gay hearts. Can you even imagine Katy Perry or Solange hitting up Coachella with daisy dukes and this bikini on top or what?

Solange Knowles

Our sartorial saliva is in drool overdrive, and we're blaming Solange Knowles. Bey's baby sister is blogging her daily outfit over at British Vogue for the ENTIRE month of February, and we already can't get enough of her enviable wardrobe. For her debut outfit (posted yesterday), she showed off a lightning blue oversized (duh) T By Alexander Wang sweater paired with Guess by Marciano leather fit-like-a-glove pants, major BCBG pumps, to-die-for Linda Farrow sunnies, and a hot pink CC Skye clutch, for which Solange perfectly explains: "Yes, I support daytime clutch-wearing!" So, what's the special occasion for the head-turning getup? Oh, just a casual studio visit. NBD. Also, can we talk about her giving serious face under that umbrella (ella, ella)? I mean, I guess we're not THAT surprised, considering she was signed to Next Model earlier this month. Get ittt.

Zooey Deschanel Golden Globes Nails

• The New Girl proved once again she's totes our kinda gal at the Golden Globe Awards. Besides debuting a va-va-voom bob and a rad rhinestone-encrusted floor-length custom Prada gown, it was Zooey Deschanel's tuxedo nail art that really wowed us that night. And, um, you KNOW how much we love nail art.

• We just simply CAN'T get over Garbage frontwoman and '90s alt fashion goddess Shirley Manson's V magazine shoot. The Grace Coddington blowout. The McQueen. The fierosh lace everything. The forthcoming LP needs to be released stat! We're only happy when it rains, Shirls.

• In case you forgot, the Golden Globe Awards were held this week, and that meant some serious head-turning looks on the red carpet. We picked our faves (obvs), which included the always-transcendent Tilda Swinton in a sartorial-slaying Haider Ackermann number and Nicole Richie looking like a million bucks in her sparkling Julien Macdonald gown. Werq it out, Golden Girls.

• Holy hair! This week, Justin Bieber darkened up his infamous 'do (and we approved), AND Selena Gomez punked it up with pink highlights. The kids are all right in our stylish books.

• Cue the cold showers: Rihanna's SMOKIN' in the latest crop of Armani ads. We're talking about Bardot-ish bangs, sultry eyes, and undies! Oh, and we think Ri Ri's supposed to be modeling jeans or something?

Robert Pattinson Shaved Head

• Breaking: Robert Pattinson debuted a buzz cut at the People's Choice Awards! Before you all start plotting a self-destructive Friday night dive bar crawl, you best believe he still looks SMOKIN'. Now we can finally focus on those baby blues.

• Cue the apocalypse—Selena Gomez's gone wild. Just kidding! Well, sort of. The cutie-patootie got her hurr did, and we're not talking about just another set of freshly tasseled extensions, we're talking edgy purple ombre tips! *Runs to local drug store's hair dye section*

• This People's Choice Awards were held this week, so, duh, we chose our top 10 best dressed ladies who werked that red carpet like their Alexander Wang open-toed stilettos depended on it. Kelly Osbourne and her flowy gray (!!) locks represented the understated rocker girls in Honor, Lea Michele gave us full-on smizing in Marchesa, and Chloë Moretz remained perfect in Proenza Schouler.

• In case you forgot, Demi Lovato is still amazing. The "Skyscraper" songstress teamed up with Aéropostale and the Do Something organization to spearhead the fifth annual Teens For Jeans campaign. Basically, it's time to rally your classmates into donating all those ill-fitting jeans you never wear and hand them over to homeless teens in shelters. Oh yeah, and the school with the most donated denim wins $5,000, new Aéropostale jeans for every student, and a big ol' PARTY. Win/Win!

• Our fave California Gurl Katy Perry is designing a line of fake eyelashes with British manufacturer Eylure. We can't WAIT to see (heh) what sort of eyewear she conjures up. You go, girl!

Fact: Jeremy Scott stays killing it. We're trembling in our platforms at the prospect of a grueling schedule consisting of getting Katy Perry red carpet-ready, collabing on some ridiculously fly kicks with K-Pop cuties 2NE1 and, if the rumors are true, designing Britney Spears' wedding dress. The Scott reign rules supreme, and come February y'all can high kick into the leap year with another salivating-onto-the-keyboard-inducing collection with Adidas Originals x Jeremy Scott. Such bananasosity.

Can we talk specifically about the shoes for a spell? Just when you thought Scott outdid himself with the whole rainbow wing shoes thing, he goes ahead and gets his reinvention on in DENIM. The texture is irresistible. Can you even imagine how they'd distress? And the contrast tan stitching? Glorious. *Dances ecstatically in Times Square traffic* Perhaps still feeling Katy's Wild Wild West b-day bash, Scott is once again serving us major cowboy couture with adorbs cow-print kicks. Imagine these with a cuffed pant (and a velvet cowboy hat, duh.)

Sky Ferreira for "V" magazine.

There's a new, young, and wildly talented firecracker of a pop star channeling Madonna these days, and her name is Sky Ferreira. We could make a list of why we heart the 19-year-old—the Bloodshy & Avant-produced pop gems, her towering Calvin Klein billboards in SoHo, her penchant for jeggings—but now there's a new DROP DEAD GORGE reason in this V magazine Music Issue spread, shot by the legendary Mario Testino. Holy bangles!

MTV style caught up with Sky this past weekend and dished heavy about Madonna, music, Fashion Week plans, OH, and we also gabbed about her Twitter BFF (Azealia Banks) and her IRL BFF (Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson).

Rooney Mara Dragon Tattoo

• A sultry songstress (Lana Del Rey!), the other Olsen sister (Elizabeth!), and a fashion blogger hell-bent on total world domination (Tavi Gevinson!) are just a few ladies that topped our Girls to Watch in 2012 list. Don't miss the rest of our soon-to-be-style icons!

• New Year's Eve fun fact: It's all about the party dress. This year our fave celeb NYE dresses included Lady Gaga's shimmering silver trophy-esque ensemble; Nicki Minaj's space disco diva outfit; Demi Lovato's age appropriate lace-y number; and Florence Welch's fringe-tastic prohibition glamor dress. Which one did you like best?

• We stayed up all Wednesday night glued to our MacBook screens as Kanye West tweeted about all things FASHION. We learned about his entire style history, his fondness of quoting Da Vinci, and ALL about his anti-grammar school ways. REBEL.

• This week, the perfectly chiseled, tatted hunk known as David Beckham stripped down to his skivvies for the launch of his new H&M body-wear line. We want all of him. Er, IT. WE WANT ALL OF IT.

Britney Spears has got a new wedding day prerogative! The princess if pop may be strutting down the aisle in a Betsey Johnson OR Jeremy Scott designed gown. Aaanndd we're officially dead.

When it comes to Phillip Lim and his designs, we are perpetually gagging over his painfully hip sparkling sartorial (and often thoughtfully shredded) gems. No one dresses a whiskey-on-the-rocks-clutching downtown "It" Girl or Boy quite like Mr. Lim. So we carefully moved our Venti latte away from the keyboard while shrieking/enthusiastically pressing play on "Improv-isualists," a dreamy video showcasing the 3.1 Phillip Lim SS12 collection. The eye candy is all kinds of tasty, but for the rest of the vid? Well, fashion queens, please forgive us because we're about to go in.

Britney Spears wedding dress

After speculating for what feels like a bazillion years about what Britney Spears will wear at her wedding with hubby-to-be Jason Trawick, we rolled under our desks and violently convulsed after reading this new wedding rumor: Brit Brit might be considering rocking a Jeremy Scott or Betsey Johnson-designed gown down the aisle. We're already picturing Britney twirling her golden pigtails and tapping her pencil against her San Pellegrino bottle (think grown-up "Baby One More Time" music video) on her private jet thinking, "Who should design mah dress, y'all? Lemme just hit up my homies Jeremy and Betsey." Britney already did the traditional family-centric wedding complete with a gorge Monique Lhuillier dress when she married Kevin Federline back in '04, so it makes sense that the girl wants to have some fun and go for designers known for their beautifully bonkers duds. Um, can you even IMAGINE this wedding? Let us help.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
