Lauren Conrad has been everywhere this month! Not only does The Hills alumna have two new books out, a design collaboration with Kohl's, and a new MTV series in the works, she's also Teen Vogue's November cover girl! And we love her cover outfit. For the front page of the glossy, Lauren Conrad wore a royal blue Nanette Lepore Ingrid dress ($368, NanetteLepore.com) with vertical welt pockets. The frock has feminine cap sleeves, a zip front, and an open back with crisscross detail. As for accessorizing, Lauren kept it simple and clean with just a single necklace in the shape of a diamond by In God We Trust ($100, refinery29.com). Both of these pieces are available online, should you want to copy Lauren Conrad's Teen Vogue style yourself.

When Enrique Iglesias dropped by the MTV studios recently to chat about his hit song "I Like It" (the video features the Jersey Shore cast), we couldn't help but wonder how he perfected his play-it-cool style. Turns out, he's a natural! "I hate going shopping for clothing," he says. "I hate having to get dressed up for a performance. I’m lazy when it comes down to that. If I had to be a stylist, I would probably starve." But there is one pre-show styling move that Enrique Iglesias never skips. WAXING! Find out what this hottie waxes — yes, it's more than one place — in the clip below.

Roxy Olin, Leighton Meester, and Mischa Barton flaunt their abs in belly-baring dresses.

Roxy Olin, Leighton Meester, and Mischa Barton are not afraid to show some skin — no matter what season it is! All three ladies recently stepped out in belly-baring, cutout dresses in bright colors and patterns. Let's take a closer look at their midriff-exposing outfits below.

ROXY OLIN: Earlier this week, The City star Roxy Olin debuted a hot pink dress with cutouts at her stomach and shoulders that SuperTrash designed in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month at the Fashion Fighting for the Cure event in New York (the dress goes on sale Oct. 9 for $99 online). Roxy played up the feminine color with pointed-toe pumps and loose, wavy locks.

LEIGHTON MEESTER: Last month, Gossip Girl Leighton Meester chose an electric blue mini with cutouts by Versus by Versace for Fashion's Night Out, and wore it with multicolor Christian Louboutin booties and a sparkly clutch.

MISCHA BARTON: Finally, Mischa Barton went for patterns instead of bright colors when she wore a red-and-white sparrow print Miu Miu dress from the label's spring 2010 collection in London earlier this summer. Black shoes and a bold red lip helped Mischa pull off the look.

While all three style stars pulled off this daring trend, Leighton Meester's look has to be our favorite! The banded blue dress fit her body perfectly, and we love how she added even more to the outfit with fun accessories and bright shoes. But what do you think?

+ Which midriff dress do you like best — Roxy, Leighton's, or Mischa's?

Swizz Beatz dropped by the MTV2 Sucker Free studios this week to talk fashion with host DJ Envy, where Swizz confirmed his appreciation for high-fashion accessories. Aside from sitting on the design board of Swiss watch company Audemars Piguet, he also has a steady collaboration with French luxury shoe designer Christian Louboutin. "That's like a brother from another mother," Swizz says of Louboutin. "We met two years ago — now it was on my friends boat. And he was sitting there and he was chilling, and I'm thinking it was going to be a 10-minute conversation and it turned into being six hours. We came up with concepts right there." The most famous of the collaborative designs are the spiky loafers, lace-ups, and sneakers, which have landed on everyone from Kanye West to Diddy to Chad Ochocinco. And Swizz is still working with Louboutin. "Now we're leading to a lot of different things," Swizz said. "Now, it's showtime."

Lauren Conrad was in New York City this week night to launch her two new books, Sugar and Spice and Lauren Conrad Style. The Hills star caught up with MTV's The Seven at her book signing and explained how the Style book is about learning to play dress-up again. "When you're young you play dress-up as a game. As you get older it becomes more of a stress on your life." Part of that stress for Lauren is donating her old clothes to Goodwill. "You kind of have to break up with your clothes," she joked to MTV. What's Lauren's top tip for breaking up with clothes? Watch the clip below to find out!
