Vampire Diaries actress and budding singer Kat Graham shot the video for her new single "I Want It All" this past weekend in San Bernadino, Calif. Gone are the bedazzled eyes and candy-color lips (at least in this shot), replaced by something just as theatrical. Seemingly channeling Mad Max, the 21-year-old Graham rocked a silver and black chain and crystal corset by The Blonds, which debuted in their Fall 2010 "Strange Fruit" collection. She teamed the incredible bustier with I'm-going-to-kick-you-in-the-head platform combat boots, gigantic hair and armfuls of silver cuffs. You know climbing up a hill of old-school tubes in the middle of a rocky desert wasn't easy--what with the bajillion pounds of hardware--but you know the payoff will be worth it. Gaaaaaah... we can't wait 'til this drops.

Vanessa Hudgens at LAX airport in Los Angeles on March 1.
Photo: Bauergriffinonline

Any other time, it would be the fancy french braid/bun thing that Vanessa Hudgens wore at LAX airport last week that we'd be yakking on about today. But the bundle of feathers dangling from her right ear TOTALLY stole her hairdo's thunder (peep the side-eye from the photo-bombing lady to the right who is obvi way jelz). Oh, and the leopard print super-wallet did its share of damage, too. But back to that earring...word is that the 22-year-old actress designed the plumage herself at the earring bar at Edge of Urge in Wilmington, N.C. (she's been shooting Journey 2: The Mysterious Island there). Who doesn't love DIY? Get the look with this $98 re-creation designed by Jessie Williams.

Kanye West at the Givenchy Ready to Wear Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 show; Liv Tyler arrives at the Givenchy after show party on March 6, 2011, in Paris.

Nothing says "fierce" quite like a T-shirt emblazoned with the image of a teeth-baring Rottweiler. Either Kanye West and Liv Tyler were trying to send a message (#getoffmylawn), or they were simply showing support for designer Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci (below) when they wore the grrrrrrrment (Haha. Sorreeeee.) to the fashion house's Paris runway show and after party, respectively. Kanye teamed his with leather pants, a cropped zip-up jacket, and dark shades. Meanwhile Liv wore hers with a dinner jacket and tights, making it look more tunic than tee. Neither star wore a smile. But obviously this is NOT the shirt to say "cheeeese" in. Though, it should be noted that sweet Liv is doing a half-"smize."

Georgia May Jagger at the HUDSON Jeans Collection presentation in Paris on March 3.

Success must be in this girl's genes jeans. Mick Jagger's baby girl, Georgia May, may not be taking the stage anytime soon (she admits that she can't sing), but she's definitely making big moves in the fashion world. The 19-year-old student (she does her studying in New York City at the School of Visual Arts), who once only modeled Hudson Jeans, asked if she could co-design threads for the denim company, and drumroll, please...they agreed. Ask and you shall receive. On March 3, Georgia May set up shop in Paris' emporium Montaigne Market, where crowds stopped by to check out her 10 (mostly skintight) styles, some of which she also modeled. We love the subtle lace-up stretch jeans. Georgia May, can we have a pair? Well...it was worth a try.

Justin Bieber performs on the street Aug. 20, 2007, in Stratford, Canada.

Kids these days. They grow up so fast. Just a few years ago, Justin Bieber was a virtual unknown. Now, the 17-year-old is everywhere (his hair is even on eBay!). But, l'est we forget our roots, check out a 13-year-old Biebs, clad in a LOOK-AT-ME yellow tee, tapered jeans, a baseball cap and black sneakers, street performing for money (or fame…or both). Geesh, he even had a big bottle of water with him, which meant one of two things—it was toasty on that Canadian street corner, or J.B. planned on playing for a minute. He's a hustler baby, he's a hustler. In any case, Justin has certainly come a long way. He’s got multiple hit albums, a feature film, a cute girlfriend (Selena Gomez) and an evolving wardrobe.

PERFORMING From hoodies in 2009 to popped collars in 2011, you could gauge the level of Justin's success by the prominence of his lapel.

ON THE RED CARPET Could you even imagine jeans-and-tee Bieber wearing a bow tie pre-2010? Didn't think so. But, what a difference a year makes.

AT THE VMAs Justin went from matching his shirt and shoes to the red carpet at the VMAs in 2009 to getting fancy in quintuplet-black (black tee, vest, jacket, pants, and shoes) in 2010. But we see he hasn't let go of his long pendant chains.

WITH USHER Some things never change. Usher discovered Justin Bieber (on that stoop?!?), and they've been sidekicks ever since. They even dress the same. BFFs 4eva!

In this episode of Jersey Shore, Sammi returns to "the madness" (aka Seaside), and while Snooki, JWOWW, and Deena are "hecstatic," the boys are, err, shocked/confused/slightly angry. When Sammi slips into her blue minidress, Ronnie can't help to suck up just a little, but then he realizes he might be better off by taking a step (or 10 back). Meanwhile, Snooki obsesses (and cries under her leopard print blanket) over Vinny.

JWOWW'S SPRAY TAN: JWOWW was so excited for her reunion with boyfriend Roger, that she went spray tanning in the buff.

RONNIES HAZMAT SUIT: The toilet strikes again, and it's Ronnie's turn to suit up in gloves made out of baggies and nose plugs made out of tissue to unclog the toilet for the hundreth-millioneth time. Not a good look (or smell!).

SAMMI'S SPA-LIKE GLOW: Time away from the house does a Sammi good...the girls compliment her on how great she looks—toes look good, nails look good, skin looks good. Then she turns around and calls Ronnie pale. Sammi, dahling, Ron's the same hue as you!

Lourdes Leon and Kelly Osbourne at the Material Girl photo shoot in New York on Jan. 19.

Material Girl's new muse, Kelly Osbourne (who took the reigns from former Material Girl Taylor Momsen) was handpicked by creators Madonna and her 14-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon to appear in the brand's Spring 2011 ad campaigns. Judging from these on-set outtakes, the 26-year-old TV host did a darn good job modeling the collections mix of flirty frocks, short rompers, cutoff denim, and body-con overalls.

Madonna did most of the styling of Taylor Momsen for last year's campaign. But Lourdes (who has a cute/quirky look that we adore) took over styling duties this year to get Kelly's look just right.

Lady Gaga at the Thierry Mugler Spring/Summer 2012 show on March 2 in Paris.

For a woman who sings, dances, makes wombs/eggs/pods an outfit, and crafts her signature fragrance to smell like blood, why wouldn't she ALSO try her hand at modeling? It was only a matter of time before Lady Gaga would find herself strutting down the Mugler runway—she'd already been tapped as the brand's musical director, tasked with creating fashion show tunes for creative director Nicola Formichetti. So, yes, we knew it was coming. But what surprised us was how professional the pop star's strut was (even in INSANELY high platform heels).

In addition to two hip-length ponytails, and the stilt shoes (seriously, they look like they were a foot high...GAH!), Lady G wore two looks: a sheer condom-colored top over a ribbed corset with a long fitted skirt and wide hat; and a sheer black top over a bra with a long latex skirt and flat cap.

Oh, and don't ask us about the other models and their looks. Gaga stole the show AGAIN.

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