As quintessential 90's garments go, the sleeveless, cropped turtleneck is pretty high up there, alongside velvet babydoll dresses, daisy prints and Docs, we would say. It's also been creeping back into rotation in the past few months, and although it's a challenging garment in theory, as turtlenecks are (we just feel so conflicted!), we have to say we're learning to love it. As you can imagine, our eyes got wide when we saw not one but TWO turtleneck crop tops at the iHeartRadio festival yesterday, on Miley Cyrus and Gwen Stefani. Now, WE don't need to tell YOU how much of a co-sign it is to see two ladies working a trend we've been mulling over. Not to mention the fact that they're of two distinctly different generations. Gwen was already a fashion icon in the 90's, although she wasn't too much older than Miley is now. Miley, on the other hand, was but a wee baby in the 90's (she was born in 1992) and so these trends are brand new for her, so it's interesting that it would be Miley who would rock a truly nostalgia-inducing version of the cropped, sleeveless turtleneck (we can literally see Shannon Doherty wearing this top in our minds), while Gwen's crop top is distinctly more futuristic and modern.

Ariel Winter, Elizabeth Moss, and Ginnifer Goodwin at the 2012 Emmy Awards.

Fall may have officially begun this weekend, but flowers are still blooming all over this year's Emmy Awards red carpet. The the bright pops of color we saw blooming on Ginnifer Goodwin, Elizabeth Moss, and Ariel Winter's gowns were right at home in the beaming California sun. The dresses on these three ladies were like a masterclass in the versatility of florals--from abstract, nearly watercolor renderings, to more classic patterns, to botanically-inspired embroidery--proving that tried-and-true textile trends can always benefit from experimentation and reinterpretation.

We don't know about you guys, but there's a certain adrenaline rush for us when we see our favorite stars step out onto the red carpet. The 2012 Emmy Awards are the MOST exciting shows of awards season, because we get to see all of our favorite TV stars in their finest duds, and out of the characters we see them as every week. This year is a big one for some of our small screen faves, from the girls of HBO's Girls, to fellow funny ladies (and SNL alumni) Kristin Wiig and Tina Fey, to the always on point--both in her role as Sally Draper and as a budding fashion mainstay--Kiernan Shipka, and we cannot wait to break down their looks, the trends, and all of the excitement for you as the night goes on. For now, though, take a spin through our red carpet gallery, and let us know your favorite looks in the comments!

Grimes Hedi Slimane

Many of us were something just short of aghast when Hedi Slimane announced that he would be using his power as creative director of legendary fashion house Yves Saint Laurent to stage a complete overhaul of the brand, starting with the most sacred of signifiers: the name. It would be called Saint Laurent Paris--a small change, but a significant one--and people scratched their heads a little bit, but as time has passed have come to accept that a new age of YSL is upon us. There have been reports that the new SLP will include expanded ready to wear, MANY more stores, and a younger, fresher feel, and Slimane's extracurricular activities support those theories. Outside of creative directing, Slimane has been photographing magazine and album covers from ultra cool, slightly grungy pretty young things Grimes and Sky Ferreira (not to mention those incredible photos of Frances Bean Cobain). He shot the cover for Sky's Ghost EP and Grimes' Dazed & Confused cover, and has now been posting atmospheric, beautiful shots of the Canadian musician on his blog, Hedi Slimane Diary. Could Slimane's fondness for edgy, street wise ladies be an indicator of the direction the new Saint Laurent Paris will take? Are there SLP snapbacks and nameplates in our future? Check out more of Slimane's photos after the jump and form your own theories.

The Backstreet Boys are selling jeans for Old Navy.

If you were a tween girl back in 1996, you probably already have a medley of Backstreet Boys songs streaming through your head after reading their name in the headline of this post. It's like some kind of unavoidable physical reaction brought on by the fact that they are a near-perfect (nobody's perfect) boy band. The boys of Backstreet have been staging a comeback for over a year now, getting the whole band back together and creating a gelled-hair-juggernaut alongside 80's boy band legends New Kids On the Block, and now they're guaranteeing that everyone will once again have their songs stuck in their heads by invading our living rooms during commercial breaks in a new Old Navy ad. The commercial, which is for the retailer's new skinny jeans, changes "everybody" to "every body," and has women flocking to the runway after the sound of their voices. The clip is called "Rockstar Runway," and, although we feel like "Popstar Runway" might be a little bit more appropriate, it's a good fit for the boy band who just won't quit. Watch the clip after the jump.

MAC Marilyn Monroe

When you hear the world "glamour," there's a fairly good chance what pops into mind immediately are images of old Hollywood starlets, and the most prominent one is probably Marilyn Monroe. An icon in every sense of the word, Marilyn embodies the high gloss femininity that so defines that golden age of Hollywood, and that so many of us modern ladies, while we might not want to go all out pinup glam, definitely want a little hint of in our day to day lives. That, friends, is where MAC comes in. We heard that MAC was going to be releasing a Marilyn Monroe line all the way back in February--early intel suggested it wouldn't be out until October, but lo and behold, it's going to be ready for purchase online on September 27th, mere weeks away! It still won't be in stores until October 4th, though, so if you want to give the shades an in-store test run you'll have to wait a little. The 30 piece collection includes lipstick, nail polish, and everything in between, all in classic shades that will have your skirt blowing up over a subway grate in no time (ok, maybe not). Check out the full collection after the jump.

Betsey and Lulu Johnson at Betsey's 70th birthday party.

Lulu Johnson has quite and enviable pedigree. Not only is her mom Betsey Johnson, whose 70th birthday party we just attended, but Lulu grew up right at the helm of her eponymous clothing line as both muse and design assistant (how's that for training?). It's only natural, therefore, that she would grow up to be a designer in her own right, and that's exactly what she's doing with her new line, Lulu and Allison (the 'Allison' would be her best friend and co-designer, Allison McClellen). Now, we're pretty sure anything designed my a woman who had not only grown up with a fashion designer mom but also with access to THE BETSEY JOHNSON ARCHIVE would have to be pretty bonkers. However, Lulu claims to be more down to earth, or at least less sartorially adventurous, than her mom. In a new video from The Stylish (which you can watch after the jump) Lulu describes her line as, "a line for women who still want to be hip, sexy, and cool," while Betsey describes her own line as, "very punky, very downtown Sally Brown, very MTV." First of all, we are beyond pleased to be used as a descriptor for one of our favorite designers EVER, and second of all, it sounds like Lulu will not be following directly in her mother's footsteps with her line. We're going to get to follow along the whole way, though, as the two are also about to begin a reality show.

Is there an area of culture that Lady Gaga's Fame perfume launch hasn't touched? We have print ads, short films, ice cream socials, masked galas, and now (drumroll please) shoes. One of the most anticipated parts of each facet of the Fame launch machine is what mama monster will be wearing at any given point and in any given asset, and those of us who have been following it closely have also been combing over each image with a fine tooth comb, because if there's one thing we know about Gaga, it's that her attention to detail. is. exquisite. This leads us to the shoes. Last Friday, Gaga launched Fame with an ice cream party outside of Macy's in New York City's Herald Square. Her entrance, as was expected, was Gaga-grand, and she emerged out of a carriage shaped like a perfume bottle in a black bubble-like dress and a pair of sky high heels which, upon closer inspection, had tiny gold men crawling all over them. Calling to mind the evocative image on her Fame billboard, the small figures were rendered in gold and nearly overtaking the enormous 12-inch platform heel. Who could design such a creation? Why, United Nude, of course.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Margiela suit

We know it's silly (and maybe a little sad) but we really do get a little butterfly-ified when we gaze upon Joseph Gordon-Levitt's undeniable punim. He's the kind of guy you would imagine would make you laugh, never do you wrong, and would totally impress your mom at family holidays, all the while being super hot to boot. He also knows how to wear the crap out of some clothes. Three piece suits, fall layers, and basic t-shirts: no sartorial staple phases JGL, oh no, and now, in the October issue of Glamour, he's proving himself once again. The spread does double duty, as a straight-up interview in the magazine and as a cute feature on date night dressing online, but both are pure cuteness. Let's look at the online spread for now. So it's supposed to be about the girl, how you can wear a Marni cape on a date or a cozy sweater and silk skirt (both by Oscar De La Renta), and these are definitely two fall looks we can seriously get behind, but we're also really feeling Joe picking us up for our date in an oxblood Maison Martin Margiela suit and crisp white Thom Browne shirt, unbuttoned just so. I mean, what would you even do? You would die of happiness, that's what. See more of JGL's sweep you off your feet looks after the jump.

Lea Michele L'Oreal

It's just been confirmed that Glee star Lea Michele is the new face of L'Oreal Paris, joining the likes of Beyonce and Gwen Stefani, who have also been spokeswomen for the brand. In a statement to People magazine, Lea said that she is "overjoyed" to be working with the company, which is the largest beauty company in the world. Pretty major, if you ask us. She went on to say that she is not only a fan of L'Oreal because of their products, but also because of their message, "I’m so thankful to be a part of a television show that promotes inner beauty and self-worth," Lea said, referring to her starring role on the groundbreaking Glee, "now to be a part of this amazing family [L'Oreal] that expresses the same amazing message is such an honor.”
