Lauren Conrad will return to reality TV!

The 24-year-old The Hills and Laguna Beach reality star turned fashion designer confirmed her new gig today. And even better, it's going to be about fashion! The show will be a MTV documentary reality program about launching her latest fashion line, which she described earlier this year as "more boutique" in its aesthetic. "I am so excited to be rejoining the MTV family," she told MTV News in a statement. "The new project will follow me as I develop my new contemporary line and also touch on my other businesses."

She also confirmed the news during an interview with Ryan Seacrest today. Lauren Conrad told Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show that her new show will be "something very different," and will follow her career. As for her boyfriend, actor Kyle Howard, who starred on the now-canceled TBS show My Boys, he "will not be in it," she said. "I've always been open to doing reality again," she explained to Seacrest. "Just under certain circumstances. As long as you have a separation, then it works. You have your personal life, and you have work life; when they're combined, it's difficult."

Conrad also told Seacrest that filming will "probably start sometime in October" in Los Angeles, the same month her latest book Style by Lauren Conrad is due out. She also chatted with Ryan about her line for Kohl's, trends for high school students, and her books (listen to her here).

This show marks Lauren Conrad's first return to reality television following her exit from The Hills in 2009. Welcome back to MTV, Lauren Conrad!

Taylor Swift's style keeps evolving as she grows older, and one thing she's definitely into are bright, BRIGHT dresses. Just last night, Taylor Swift wore a vibrant yellow dress to the Country Music Hall in California, and last week she wore a radiant green Miu Miu dress to the premiere of Easy A. So, we wondered, what happens when you put all her colorful dresses together? You get a Taylor Swift Rainbow! Pretty, right? As for a favorite hue, we thought she looked absolutely spectacular in yellow, so that's our favorite color of the Taylor Rainbow. But what's yours?

+ What color looks best on Taylor Swift?

Katy Perry in Giles Deacon; Giles Deacon spring 2010 runway.

Katy Perry performed her hit song "Hot 'N Cold" for Sesame Street that was supposed to air for a New Year's special. However, reports surfaced today that her cameo got pulled because she wore a dress that exposed too much cleavage, which was deemed too scandalous for children. A Sesame Street spokesperson said: "In light of the feedback we’ve received on the Katy Perry music video which was released on You Tube only, we have decided we will not air the segment on the television broadcast of Sesame Street, which is aimed at preschoolers." So, what dress caused the trouble?

We found it!!! The lime green dress is by British designer Giles Deacon, and it's from his spring 2010 collection. The dress features sheer fabric on the cleavage area and a silver bow at the center of the neckline. For the runway, Giles Deacon actually put a spider in between the model's cleavage for a styling addition, so maybe he wanted the attention there! We actually liked the dress on Katy Perry and thought she looked pretty good in it! But what do you think?

VV Brown is a singer you need to know. Not only for her music, with its catchy indie-pop sound (download her single 'Shark In The Water' and you'll see) and tour with Maroon 5 this summer, but also for her fashion. The 26-year-old Brit is a rising star in the fashion industry — posing for Elle and Vogue as a model signed with Next Model Management. So when she swung through the MTV Style studio a few weeks ago for a photo shoot (click here to see all the amazing photos!), we quizzed her on her music, style, her signature flattop hairstyle, and her thoughts on the fashion industry. Good news! This one knows how to speak her mind. Read on for more.

How does your style reflect your music?
VV Brown: "My music is a mix of many different styles from punk to retro to reggae to pop, and I think generally that is my personality. Even the way I’ve been raised; my dad is Puerto Rican and my mum is Jamaican and I’ve grown up in London. So my whole life is very mixed up with many, many different cultures and many, many different things that inspire my fashion."

How do you style your signature flattop do?
"I actually do the roll myself, and then whoever I’m working with helps wraps it and makes it neat with hair spray. The roll comes from a long journey of experimentation and my love of different cultures. I think maybe for the second album I'll experiment with something else."

Besides singing, you're involved in the fashion industry, as a model (in British Vogue and beyond) and a vintage collector. Would you ever want to design your own collection?
"I’d love to do a collection in the future based upon time periods — a whole collection inspired by medieval times or Victorian or Edwardian all the way up to the future of what fashion is, and it would be a collection that embraces all the different times. That would be fun."

Is there anything you dislike about the fashion industry?
"It’s very fickle and consumed by vanity. As much as I love fashion, there is a balance I have in my world. I think in the fashion world you can be consumed with just beauty and being thin. The question of size zero and how small models are, that’s quite a concern of mine. I don’t think models need to be extremely thin. I think the perception of beauty needs to change, and I think all women need to be celebrated."

How should the view of beauty change?
"The normal woman outside the fashion industry is trying to attain an unrealistic perception of what is beautiful. That’s not reality. Fashion and beauty should be about happiness and health, innovation, expression, and sexuality. Being sexy is being a woman and being a woman is having womanly features, not masculine features, which I think the modeling industry projects — skinny and with no breasts. Being healthy and happy should be the reality."

Do you go vintage shopping when you’re on tour?
"Yes. Everywhere I go, I try and hit a vintage shop to buy something. I think American vintage fashion is best in the world. I’ve been to Paris and Milan and America, for some reason, just piques my interest with fashion. I get the best pieces here."

New American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez and Dave Lingwood of The Buried Life.

The sight of blue jumpsuits on stars are few and far between, so when TWO people wore them yesterday, it was quite a fashion moment! When Jennifer Lopez officially announced her new position as American Idol judge yesterday, she wore a blueish-gray jumpsuit covered in sparkles. Meanwhile, Dave Lingwood, one of the four stars of MTV's The Buried Life, wore a blue jumpsuit to the season 2 premiere party for the show in Hollywood last night. As to who wore it better, it's a tight competition. Usually, we'd pick anything sparkly without hesitation, but Dave Lingwood totally edges out Jennifer Lopez because he looks adorable in it. Meanwhile, hers isn't so flattering — especially where it bunches up in the front, if you know what we mean. But what do you think?

+ Which jumpsuit looks best — American Idol's Jennifer Lopez or The Buried Life's Dave?

The second season of The Buried Life premieres Monday, Sept. 27, at 10:30/9:30c.

Gossip Girl's new season premiered this month, and we're just catching up on all of the action now. And by action, we actually mean fashion! One dress that especially caught our eye was the cherry print mini that Leighton Meester's character Blair Waldorf wore in the "Belles du Jour" episode. We've seen this pattern before! Whitney Port of The City wore the same pattern (but in a different style) to the MuchMusic Awards on June 20. The designer of this dress is Moschino, and it's from the spring 2010 collection. As to who looks best, it comes down to the neckline for us — Whitney's strapless style is simply more flattering than Leighton's halter. But what do you think?

+ Who wore this Moschino cherry pattern best — Leighton Meester or Whitney Port?

Snooki: Going to the Late Show With David Letterman and then leaving.

Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi had three outfit changes yesterday when she visited the Late Show With David Letterman show in New York. Usually, we don't point out typical Snooki style, but three outfits in one day is just too diva of an act to ignore, and we just love divas. Way to go, girl! First, she arrived wearing something comfortable: a black oversize cardigan over a printed blue, purple, and white top and black leggings tucked into black boots. She changed into a strapless sparkly dress for the show, which looked great on her, though she looked too made up with her berry lip gloss. Then, to leave the studio, Snooki wore a belted khaki dress and accessorized with a silver spike bracelet, Gucci handbag, tan boots, huge silver hoops, and her signature pouf. This last outfit is definitely our favorite. Put away the bikini, Snooki is ready for fall!

+ Which outfit do you like best on Snooki — black sweater, sparkly dress, or khaki dress?

Chord Overstreet and Justin Bieber.

Yes, Glee's got fresh meat! There are two new cast members on the second season of the show — which premiered last night — and this guy right here is one of them. Nashville native Chord Overstreet plays Sam Evans on Glee, a transfer student jock who goes for glee club. (It's also rumored that he will become the love interest for Kurt Hummel, played by the adorable Chris Colfer.) We think the new guy Chord Overstreet is totally on the hot level up there with Mark Salling, Cory Monteith, and the rest of the Glee boys. But, there's one thing we just can't get past — he has Justin Bieber's haircut! We wonder if Chord can toss his locks to the side like only the King can.

+ Who looks better with this haircut — Chord Overstreet or the Original Justin Bieber?

Mark Salling of Glee: With glasses and without.
Photo: PictureGroup

Glee's second season premiered last night, which means we're taking a careful look at the cast members and getting all up in their style business. Like Mark Salling, who plays Noah "Puck" Puckerman on the show. Mark Salling has a thing for glasses. While he doesn't wear them all the time, he has slid them on for every public appearance in Hollywood this week, from a Macy's event last Thursday to a Weezer concert last night. We're not even sure he has real working lenses in those things! But who cares? When glasses make him look this hot, functionality hardly matters.

+ Do you think Glee's Mark Salling looks better with glasses? Or without?
