Naeem Khan Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week.

New York Fashion Week is as much about discovering next season's trends as it is about picking out the gowns the celebs will be wearing right away for awards shows (like THIS Sunday for the Emmys). If there's one designer who's become a red carpet FAVE for legions of ladies who want to look LUXE, it's Naeem Khan, master of the fanciest of fancy gowns. We're talking beaded looks of royal refinement as befitting the Queen of Jordan and our First Lady (really, he dresses them). So, when stars like Taylor Swift or Beyoncé have a particularly ballad-y performance coming up, or when actresses Zooey Deschanel and Lea Michele need to class up the carpet, they turn to Naeem's brand of uptown elegance. Khan describes his Spring 2012 collection as "COLORFUL RACY GLAMOUR," (all-caps), and while we get the colorful and glamorous, we didn't necessarily get racy—unless you count the Marilyn Manson aspect.

Deena, Jane Lynch, Snooki, and Sammi after taping a segment for the Emmy Awards show.

The Emmy Awards are this Sunday night and they'll be hosted by Jane Lynch (aka Glee's favorite cheer coach Sue Sylvester), who's gearing up for all kinds of CRAY-NESS to make the broadcast fun, fun, FUN. What better way to get everyone excited for all of the zany hijinks and self-mocking laughter that's about to enSUE than to join forces with the cast of Jersey Shore? Lynch did just that when she posed for a photo recently dressed as a GLEE GUIDETTE (Glee + guidette = Gleedette! You heard it here FIRST!) with Deena, Snooki, and Sammi. Interestingly, unlike Anderson Cooper, Lynch appears to have NOT hit Snooki up for a spray tan tutorial. (Seriously, what's with the anemic glow, Lynchi? You best trade those white tights and get yer SPRAY ON! *Fist pump*) Still, we think she looks JUICED UP and hungry for meatballs (with a side of slushie!), like any GLEEDETTE would.

Tune in to the Emmy Awards on Sept. 18 at 8 p.m. ET/5 PT on FOX and check back with us for live fashion coverage of all the red carpet looks!

Anna Sui Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week.

It was a 1940s themed party set in the 1970s at the Anna Sui show for New York Fashion Week. At the top of the runway, models stood in shades of fuchsia and purple light dancing with stars (LITERAL STARS!) while Karen Elson emerged as if from a delicious disco dream, hitting the runway adorned in a PATCHWORK PARADISE of 1940s chic, her strawberry curls bobbing in tandem with her clomping red platforms. Then, something UTTERLY UNPRECEDENTED happened. As Ms. Elson sailed past ardent Sui supporters in the front row like Sofia Coppola, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Kevin Jonas and his wife, Danielle Deleasa, she hit the edge of the runway, paused for a moment, and smiled. Folks, it was as if time itself stopped in static, captivated appreciation at the RARE SIGHTING of a SMILE on the runway in the fashion WILDZ! Yes, Ms. Sui—the reigning fairy godmother of vintage rock and roll fantasia—achieved the impossible for Spring 2012. Not only did she give us a troop of supes like Ms. Elson, Jessica Stam, and Karlie Kloss, she gifted us with a rollicking fun-time parade of Biba-inspired party ensembles we actually want to wear.

When it comes to DRESSES that DOMINATE the red carpet (and we do mean ALL CAPS), the ultra-feminine label Marchesa is what the stylists (and style stars) choose to make a WOW statement. Chances are you've seen Marchesa designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman's voluminous confections atop your faves at many an awards show. This is the reason why their New York Fashion Week shows (or presentations as they've done in years past) are always attended by the loveliest of Hollywood butterflies. The Marchesa Spring 2012 runway show saw Emma Roberts, Mandy Moore, and Michelle Trachtenberg arm-in-arm as well as Jessica Szohr, Camilla Belle, and Selita Ebanks on the front row.

Anytime ANYTHING Breaking Dawn-related emerges, we must stop everything we're doing to concentrate fully on whatever new VAMPTASTICNESS (or WOLFMAZINGNESS, depending on what team you're rooting for) is at hand. We have to scrutinize, stare intensely, then rewatch it over and over again so as to imprint upon it and, hopefully, cause the movie to magically appear in its entirety before our very eyes. (Really, can Nov. 18 hurry up and get herrrre?) So, now that a NEW trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 has been released (and oh my CULLEN, is it GAHHHHMAZING), we had to fashion-focus on the wedding outfits—which we were only shown mere glimpses of—to see who was wearing what. Luckily, thanks to a Twitter tip-off from @courtjustice (MEGA SHOUT-OUT!), we didn't have to focus that intensely because her lazer-gaze sleuthing has uncovered the possibility that Ashley Greene (aka Alice Cullen) might be wearing a Zac Posen bridesmaid dress! Let's BREAK this DAWN—we mean down—shall we?

Herve Leger By Max Azria Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week.

When ingenues want to pull out all the stops on the ol' red carpet, they usually opt for body-conscious Herve Leger. There's no better way to entice the paparazzi (or show off a three-hour training sesh!) than with one of the label's bandaged (bondaged?) shape-shifting dresses. They're so popular, in fact, that we see them EVERYWHERE now, whether they're the real thing or "inspired" knockoffs of the originals. For spring 2012, designer Max Azria focused on metallics, which were rendered beautifully, as well as light and dark hues and intricate details. Fans such as Ashlee Simpson, Gossip Girl's Jessica Szohr, and LeAnn Rimes sat in the front row ogling dress after shiny dress—head-to-toe looks we can only assume they're imagining will one day be in their futures.

Beyonce Solange Knowles

In case you haven't heard by now (because, really, these words should have been broadcast intercom-style all over Manhattan) someone by the name of, oh, BEYONCÉ made her way through the New York Fashion Week tents today. Yes, Bey-Bey (of our hearts) arrived at the J. Crew presentation this morning looking positively aglow in champagne sequins, her arm around her sister and street-style CHAMPION, Solange Knowles, who looked equally resplendent in the breakout trend for spring 2012, bright pink. The two took in the brand's signature preppy classics, updated for spring in a neon array of color combos and polka-dot and heart-shaped patterns. There were some particularly gobsmacking accessories we wanted to nom-nom up right into our wardrobes immediately, too. Oh, and the multi-striped, sequined maxi skirt topped with a simple denim shirt? Come to Mama!

We've FINALLY hit our stride and are smack DASH in the middle of New York Fashion Week. Thus, what better way to keep the festivities going than to attend a garden party—in the middle of a warehouse on 14th Street—and take in beaded confections with a handful of mini cupcakes (aka LUNCH and probably DINNER) in hand? Well, thanks to the Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet presentation, we were not only treated to actual sustenance of the Sprinkles variety but also to a star-studded garden of dressed-up delights. Perched atop astroturf platforms and nestled between giant birdcages were all sorts of disco Gatsby wonders. Ms. Bendet covered several themes (and decades) for a collection of feminine looks that we predict will wind up on many a red carpet (and PROM!) next year. Upon arrival, we spied Kourtney Kardashian perusing a group of white dresses, particularly a black and white striped sequin dress that we think would look PERF on her. We also noticed Michelle Trachtenberg eyeing a black, beaded flapper number that we can imagine her Gossip Girl alter ego, Regina Sparks, wearing.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week.

It wouldn't be New York Fashion Week without wondering just what Marc Jacobs has up his heavily tattooed sleeve. In a whizz-bang fashion switcheroo, he moved his Marc by Marc Jacobs show earlier in the week and his signature collection later, for a reason people are still in a TIZZ-AY about. (Is he possibly taking over Dior? Is he leaving his signature line? Does he just want to change it up from time to time like any normal person is allowed to?) The Marc method—or, at least how we view his collections every Fashion Week—is to watch the big collection first then guess what the sister line, Marc by Marc, will look like. They almost always reference each other in some way—the luxe collection carrying the main theme (polka dots, pencil skirts, forest green, jungle cats, what have you) into the everyday line. But with the tables turned this year, we have no idea what to expect. If the Marc by Marc collection is any indication, though, the spring MJ gal is going to be stocking her wardrobe with colorful yet MINIMAL pieces (much like Elle Fanning, who arrived wearing a bold, fire-engine red shirt and matching shorts). Oh, yes, and she will also need bird prints, stripes, and a plastic sun visor (obvs).

Gia Coppola's Film "What's Up?" for Wren Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week.

Goodness gracious, New York Fashion Week is still in FULL SWING, and we've got the under-eye party circles to prove it, thanks in part to last night's soiree at the new Mondrian Soho celebrating a new film collaboration for clothing label Wren and jewelry label Fallon directed by Gia Coppola (yes, of those Coppolas). Tucked in the back of the new luxe hotel, the soon-to-open lounge, Mr. H, was wall-to-rabbit-wall (seriously, there was a GI-NORMOUS painting of an Alice in Wonderland type bunny) with fashion folk eager to check out the short film entitled "What's Up?" shot by Coppola in sunny southern Cali. It was projected onto a curtain while Miss Tennessee Thomas (Rachel Antonoff for Bass Shoes model and drummer of The Like) DJ'd, spinning retro girl tunes from bands like The Shangri-Las.

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