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!

Katy Perry in Munich on Oct. 2. Rihanna in London on Oct. 4.

Katy Perry and Rihanna are two style stars spearheading the rise of something truly fabulous — the tutu. We spotted many ballerina skirts like these over the summer, and these two ladies/BFFs are continuing the trend! Katy Perry performed in Munich over the weekend wearing a sparkly pink leotard with a super-low neckline and hot pink tutu pinned on her backside. Meanwhile, Rihanna wore a poufy white full-skirt tutu to a Topshop styling session in London on Monday, which she paired with a black top and a pair of brown pumps with socks. These two pals both looked fab in their tutus, but in our opinion, Rihanna wore it better! She really mixed and matched her shapes well, picking a tighter fitting shirt with the loose, voluminous skirt. But what do you think?

+ Which tutu look do you like better — Katy Perry or Rihanna?

Nelly at the BET Awards on October 2 in Atlanta.

Nelly loves himself some bling. The rapper has worn it on every body part capable of being accessorized — including his teeth. But Nelly debuted some new bling when he showed up to the BET Hip Hop Awards with three necklaces with studded American Express credit cards hanging as charms on bold ball chains. There was the invitation-only Black card, a Gold card, and the Platinum card. While he's a walking advertisement for American Express, it's kind of awesome that he's like "Hey world, rappers don't always flaunt stacks of cash money. Sometimes, we use credit cards — multiple ones — and maintain very good credit scores. OK? Now back off. Thanks."

Alexa Chung at Paris Fashion Week on Oct. 5. Blake Lively in New York on July 28.

Alexa Chung and Blake Lively are both huge Chanel lovers, and they even have the same taste in the label's clothes. Just today, Alexa Chung attended Chanel's spring 2011 fashion show in Paris. She wore a short-sleeved navy tweed dress with a sheer center panel from Chanel's latest resort collection, which she rocked with chic black loafers and a simple black clutch. Earlier this summer, Blake Lively wore the same dress for the New York premiere of Twelve. The Gossip Girl star dressed up the look a little more than her British counterpart, pairing it with beige Christian Louboutin Bianca slingbacks and kept her beauty simple with a wavy ponytail. Both fashionistas looked fabulous, but in our opinion, Blake Lively wins this style matchup. It comes down to the footwear: Blake Lively's beige heels give the look an overall more polished feel. But what do you think?

+ Who wore Chanel best — Alexa Chung or Blake Lively?

Shontelle at MTV.

Shontelle's video for her single 'Perfect Nightmare' just dropped last week, and in it, the 25-year-old singer shows off a number of looks, such as oversize shirts with no pants and high, high ponytails. But in real life, it's a different story. When Shontelle stopped by the MTV Style studios recently, she told us she tries to be "sensible" about fashion. "I don’t know if I would say I’m a diva about anything style related, but I just really love to be fab," she says. "I love to feel really good about myself and confident, and fashion affects that a lot." As for heels: "I love to be fierce, but I also like to be comfortable. And heels really hurt," she explains. But, as every lady knows, there are exceptions. And for Shontelle, that means squeezing into a pair of stilettos every so often. "I will, every once in a while, sacrifice my soul for the sake of fashion," she says. "And I will be in immense, tremendous pain just for the sake of fabulosity." We agree — no pain, no gain!
