• Rapper J. Cole told us all about his style, which is about to get a lot more bling.

Robert Pattinson has reached a whole new level of fame: he inspired a line of underwear called R-Pants, which are made specifically for skinny jeans.

Taylor Momsen slashed up a Sonic Youth T-shirt and wore it as a dress; we found out what it looked like before she got her scissors on it.

• Both Blake Lively and Ed Westwick got chesty on us this week. Not that we're complaining.

• Want jewelry designed by Vanessa Hudgens or a blazer crafted up by Olivia Palermo? Your dreams may come true soon enough.

• You, dear readers, proclaimed your love for fast fashion. AMEN.

• More awesome summer trends! Find out how to cop the hottest looks: skinny-striped dresses and sexy cut-outs, as worn by the likes of Katie Holmes, Audrina Patridge, and Ellen Page.

• Speaking of trends, it's the year of the mile-high thigh slit! We compared Angelina Jolie's Salt premiere getup to gowns worn by Katy Perry, Fergie, and many more in our Top 10 Thigh-High Slit Dresses of 2010 slide show.

• And even more trends: we're loving vintage-y looking rings, bucket bags, and watches with sneaky messages on them.

Kristen Stewart and company weren't the only ones turning heads at the glam-fest that was Los Angeles's Twilight: Eclipse premiere in June. That's where we first started to take notice of the tiny person who accompanied Dakota Fanning — her younger sister, Elle! HOLD UP. This girl is 12? No stranger to the big screen herself (she's been in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and is cast in Sofia Coppola's upcoming flick, Somewhere), Elle knows how to melt hearts on a red carpet by dressing in pretty party dresses and funky tops. Let's take a closer look. Read More...

Cut-out dresses are the perfect way to show a peek of skin without going overboard, and they're popping up everywhere, as recently evidenced by Aubrey Plaza, Audrina Patridge, and Ellen Page. Aubrey Plaza got the prize for most elaborate cut-outs at last night's premiere of Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World — we love how she stuck with a minimal black color and really let the cut-outs draw attention. Audrina Patridge went for a more colorful look that showed off her tan — and a sliver of her upper right ribcage — in this fuschia minidress by Bouley Designs for the season finale of The Hills. And last week, Ellen Page got on the cut-out bandwagon with this pretty teal dress by Yigal Azrouel at the Los Angeles premiere of Inception. The cut-out at the top of the chest was just enough to make the dress look modern and young, but not too racy.

Zoe Kravitz, the 21-year-old actress, singer, and spawn of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, has amazing It-girl style. Her outfits have this too-cool-for-school-but-not-the-mean-girl look to them, like what she wore to a party on Monday night celebrating Spin magazine's 25th anniversary. It's almost like she's saying "I don't care what you think, I'm with the band," with her outfit. Her trick has to be her masterful way with accessories. She turned a wacky skirt (let's face it, if we saw it in a store we'd walk right by) into a great look by mixing prints (stripes with a leopard-print bucket bag, which is one of our FAVORITES of the season by Alexander Wang), stacking little bracelets up her arm, and topping it off with a hat. To anyone who thinks fedoras are overplayed, just LOOK at this photo, and stand corrected.

Want to try Zoe's "I'm a VIP" look? Snag a similar boho-style miniskirt from Target for just $10.40, and pair it with a layered black tissue tank from Old Navy ($8.50). Scuff up these studded flat ankle boots from Forever 21 ($27.80) to give them that vintagey, kicked-around look, and top off the outfit with this short-brimmed fedora from Urban Outfitters ($28). Finally, sling on this leopard shoulder bag from Anne Klein ($62.99). As for the VIP pass, find a color printer and a good laminator. Kidding! MTV can't condone fake passes. Come on now.

The colors in this picture is oversaturated. But you get the point.

In the latest news about tanning legislation (Congress slapped a tax on tanning beds nationwide earlier this summer as part of the new healthcare bill), the New York Post just did a sneaky undercover investigative piece showing that most tanning salons in New York City don't obey laws requiring them to card their young customers. See, the rules are kinda simple ... Read More...

Penelope Cruz told British magazine You that she thinks all publications telling young girls and teenagers to lose weight should be shut down, reports. "Some people look better thin and some don't. There is almost a standard being created where only thin is acceptable. The influence of those magazines on girls as young as 13 is horrific," the actress said. We totally agree with Penelope. Just because a magazine may only show photos of thin girls, doesn't mean you have to change yourself to fit in. Stay true to yourselves, ladies!

+ Do you think there are too many pictures of thin people magazines? Does that influence your style?

We already know that Vanessa Hudgens is a full-on fashion fanatic (girl after our own hearts), with over 100 pairs of jeans in her closet (and counting!). So it really comes as no surprise that she set her sights on some design work in the future when she gets some time off from her busy filming schedule. “I think that me and my girlfriend are going to start a jewelry line and then slowly work our way into fashion,” she told People at Comic Con this weekend. YES. BLING BY VANESSA!!! We're hoping some of her go-to accessories are thrown in the mix, like gemstone-studded bracelets, long chain necklaces, lots of dangly earrings, and other sparkly things.

+ Would you buy Vanessa-designed jewelry?

Angelina Jolie hit the red carpet for last night's Tokyo premiere of Salt in a stunning flowy, floor-length black Versace dress. On one hand, the 35-year-old's dress is revealing — slit to the thigh and backless, so there's lots of skin showing and we even get a peek at her tats. On the other, it's long and loose and there is a MOCK TURTLENECK element to it, so there is also lots covered up! But despite the frontal coverage, we can't help but stare at that thigh slit. It's so high that we're pretty sure if she made any sudden movements to the left or right, we'd see her bellybutton.

+ Would you wear a slit as high as Angelina?

Well, hello, hustler! We've been watching Chris "Drama" Pfaff on Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory show for a while now, and we've seen how much he's MATURED. Before, he was cousin Dyrdek's personal assistant ... and now. Well, now, he's a mini mogul in his own right. And, may we say, he's after our own little style hearts ... he's a FASHION MAN!

He created his own streetwear label named Young and Reckless (sold at PacSun, among other places), a name that plays off one of our most favorite soap operas EVER, The Young And The Restless. Coincidence? We certainly hope not! And he's so INCLUSIVE. In an interview with MTV, he said he wants to make his designs available in malls and suburbs across America. And he won't stop there. "For the future of Young and Reckless, I plan to make it as big as I can. I'll go as far as boxers and spaghetti sauce!" Spoken like a true hustler. Watch the video below to see more.

+ Watch Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory on Monday nights at 9:30/EST.

Whitney Port is expanding her Whitney Eve empire into tee territory! The City star tweeted last week that she had a "productive meeting" and was planning a line of T-shirts for spring 2011. We bet they'll be sweet and fluttery and perfect for pairing with her ladylike skirts and shorts. And now that she'll be making tees, perhaps there will be less risk of Canadian pop stars destroying Whitney's clothes during live performances ... or at least, we hope.

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