Jesse McCartney is gearing up to release his fourth album, Have It All, in December, so he dropped by the MTV studios recently to talk music. The pop star told us he wanted his new album to be "timeless" — and that's the same word Jesse used to describe his style, too. The 23-year-old opened up about fashion and told us that he draws his fashion influences from classic icons, such as Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. And when it comes to trends, Jesse loves shoes (who doesn't?!). He even gets a new pair every week. Check out all the videos below to find out Jesse McCartney's thoughts on style — including his pet peeve about women's fashion.

"I want to see a picture of myself in 20 years and not say to myself, 'What was I thinking?'"

"I have to admit, I have a shoe fetish, man, I go crazy for shoes. Every day, every week, I go out and get the next cool pair of kicks."

"The thing I don't like about when girls dress up or when they're going out is when they look uncomfortable. It's not necessarily an item of clothing; it's just if they look uncomfortable or for some reason can't walk, it's just kind of awkward."

Gossip Girl's eighth episode of season 4, "Juliet Doesn't Live Here Anymore," premiered last night, and a familiar love triangle reappeared as we saw Nate (Chace Crawford) and Dan (Penn Badgley) still pining for the gorgeous Serena (Blake Lively). Speaking of Serena, she looked gorgeous while getting so much attention in a stunning steel gray Zuhair Murad dress with a lace overlay. Elsewhere, Leighton Meester and Jessica Szohr opted for floral and patterned floor-length frocks by Ralph Lauren and Christian Cota, respectively. The ladies looked elegant in the gowns, but the sleeveless styles and pastel hues reminded us too much of summer, whereas Blake's gray dress was the perfect fit for fall. She definitely wore our favorite look of the episode, but what do you think? See the looks below and tell us who you thought was best dressed.

Just when we think we've got Ke$ha's look all figured out — torn shirts, fishnets, and massive amounts of glitter — she takes her style in a new direction ... darker! The first images of the singer on the set of her new 'We R Who We R' music video, off her upcoming album Cannibal, just dropped, and Ke$ha looks pretty insane/cool in these new behind-the-scenes photos. For the video, Ke$ha rocks a leotard embellished with glass, ripped leggings and platform boots, and she's dripping in chains. She's also trying a new beauty routine by putting a metal chain in her hair, wearing gray and black makeup, and getting a manicure with mini cross and gun charms on her fingernails. It's like she mixed Taylor Momsen's makeup with Rihanna's leotards and added some of Lady Gaga over-the-top ways. But with so much going on in this outrageous outfit, let's take a closer look.

Jazmine Sullivan in her 'Holding You Down (Going In Circles)' music video.

R&B and soul singer Jazmine Sullivan's single 'Holding You Down (Going In Circles)' is stuck in our head! And we're loving the video she released for it, too, the first one off her new album 'Love Me Back,' which drops Nov. 30. Because not only did the 23-year-old singer show off her great voice in the video, the Philadelphia native proved she's got some serious style, too (think over-the-top outfits with sequin pants, a bedazzled manicure, and pink leopard print tops). But what really caught our eye were her big, bold accessories! We're obsessed with Jazmine Sullivan's 'Bad Bitchez Bomb First' necklace and lightning bolt earrings, which is why we searched all over for them. And ... we found 'em! Get all the details on Jazmine's showstopping style below.

GET THE LOOK!!!

Rawrrrr!!!! Khloe Kardashian and Ke$ha took their love of animal print to the extreme when both ladies recently wore a faux fur hat by SpiritHoods, a company specializing in hats that mimic your favorite furry friends. Khloe kept warm in New York this week in the 'Fox' style, which she paired with a black coat and over-the-knee boots, while Ke$ha rocked the 'Leopard' version during a performance in the Big Apple earlier this summer (both hats are available online for $129 each on The two fashionistas looked fab in the bold accessory, but we think Ke$ha won this style matchup. The rest of the singer's glittery, torn outfit matched the fun feeling of the hood, and let's remember this girl loves to say she's like an Animal all the time. But what do you think?

+ Who wore their animal hood best — Khloe Kardashian or Ke$ha?

Snooki dressed as a pickle in Las Vegas on Oct. 30.

Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi dressed as her favorite food for a Las Vegas Halloween bash this weekend — a pickle! Last Friday, WWD revealed a sketch of her costume, and we couldn't wait to see how this drawing would transform into an actual outfit. And we weren't disappointed! Her look included a strapless green dress with pickle-shaped sequins and a light-up scepter with a pickle attached at the end. While her outfit looked flashier in real life than in the sketch, the pint-size reality star stayed modest by wearing a darker green cape over the mini. When it came to accessorizing, Snooki kept her green theme with green sparkly, strappy sandals; a green clutch; green makeup; and green nail polish on her fingers and toes. Green seems to be a flattering color on her! But what do you think?

+ Does Snooki look good as a pickle?
