Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, a VMA-nominated artist, performed at the V Festival in London over the weekend wearing a sheer dress with a black bodice and gold embroidered panels on the hips and turtleneck by Chanel. The dress was modified from its original form when it appeared on the label's pre-fall 2010 runway last December, namely the sheer stomach was covered up and the turquoise accents were taken away. And not only did she ditch the turquoise, she also ditched shoes. Bare feet? How anti-conformist! We like the version that Florence wore a lot better than the runway version, don't you?
+ Don't miss Florence at the 2010 MTV VMAs live from Los Angeles on Sunday, September 12, at 9/8c! And don't forget to vote — today is the last day for all the categories, other than Best New Artist, which is open until the winner is announced live at the show!

Meet the new Miss Universe, Miss Mexico, Jimena Navarrete! The 22-year-old beat out 82 other hopefuls for the title of Miss Universe, and she was crowned tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Casino. Her evening gown was gorgeous and not too over-the-top pageant girl — a simple, one-shoulder, elegant red ballgown with a thigh-high slit. She looked beautiful.
Here are the rest of the ladies who made the top five: Read More...

Kristin Cavallari was a brunette for, um, NO TIME AT ALL. Even though The Hills star Tweeted that she had dyed her blond hair a few shades darker and premiered the look on August 11, she got rid of her darker 'do quickly. Today she stepped out with lighter locks (more like her natural shade) when she showed up to a design session for ShoeDazzle.com in Los Angeles — not even two weeks she debuted her darker look! Could she have regretted her decision to go to the dark side? Or perhaps blonds really do have more fun? Either way, for dying her hair so much, it sure doesn't look damaged, so that's a plus.
+ Do you like her return to light color? Have you ever dyed your hair three times in one month?

Not only is Olivia Palermo a designer, but she's a model, too! The 24-year-old star of The City posed for the fall campaign for the label Hogan, which makes cute (but expensive) bags, clothes, and shoes, and the photos just came out today. Olivia looks so pretty and relaxed in the picture! It must be because of her warm winter clothes. Or maybe it's because she's snuggled up next to her model boyfriend, Johannes Huebl, who is sitting on the far left.
+ Do you think Olivia is a good model?

The way Lady Gaga travels is a lot different than the way you travel, and we'll bet on it. Why? Because she wears crazy getups that would never be allowed through security. Exhibit A: Nipple Stickers! On Saturday, she Tweeted this picture of herself in an airplane on her way to her concert in Tacoma, Washington. Her look consisted of a huge blond beehive with a bandana tied around her hair, sheer strapless top, and nipple stickers in the shape of X's. The last time she broke out the nipple stickers was for Lollapalooza, when she crowd-surfed nearly naked during the Semi Precious Weapons set with gold star-shapes on her chest. That means it's only a matter of time before she breaks 'em out again! And as for us regular mortals, we still have to travel like fools, you know, the kind that get anxiety from having to take off our shoes and step on the dirty gross floor of an airport.

Amber Lancaster, star of MTV's The Hard Times Of RJ Berger, has been party-hopping this summer! (Can we tag along, please?) And she developed quite a girl-next-door/totally-attainable style as she skipped around town. Her faves: Loose, light tank tops, long layer-friendly necklaces and chains, short black skirts, and peep-toe black pumps (not that we're following her ... oh wait, yes we are). For example, last night, she attended Audi and Chopard Emmy Week kick-off party wearing a peach-pink tank, black skirt, long chainlink necklace, and peep-toe pumps.
Earlier this month, on August 13, she wore basically the same outfit, only with a white tank and a more delicate gold chain to a WWE SummerSlam party. You can get this look, too. Just throw on a tank and black skirt, which are wardrobe staples (Nordstrom has a white tank for $8.90, Roxy makes a peach top for $11.25, Express has a scalloped skirt for $34.90, and Arden B makes one a little tighter, bandage-style for $39). Though, skip the pumps for a more casual look, and instead try a good pair of flats to dress it down.
+ Would you want to cop Amber's style?

Miss seeing Christian Siriano on television lately? Well, he's been hard at work! Not only is the Project Runway fourth season winner prepping to show his spring collection at New York Fashion Week in a few weeks, the 24-year-old designer is also handling big-name red-carpet clients from Rihanna to Katrina Bowden to Melania Trump. His latest: Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, who wore a lovely black belted strapless gown by Siriano to the Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday. Black is such a dramatic color for this kind of event, but for her it works and really makes her pale skin and red hair pop. This marks the second time she wore one of his creations to a major event, as she wore a peach gown he designed to the Golden Globe Awards in January. Looks like he's got a steady client! Which Christian-designed dress do you prefer on her?

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards were held in Los Angeles on Saturday, and both Miranda Cosgrove and Chelsea Staub showed up wearing fun, flouncy light-colored dresses. Nickelodeon star Miranda Cosgrove, 17, wore a strapless short dress with embroidered flowers on it by the red-carpet staple label, Marchesa. She matched her dress with Casadei double-platform pumps and a clutch by Genevieve Jones. Disney star Chelsea Staub, 21, also opted for a light strapless dress — a white mesh dress with a scalloped, layered skirt and asymmetrical hem by BCBG Max Azria, which she paired with matching white pumps and a red clutch. Her dress is actually on sale for $299 online, slashed from its original price of $598. We were thisclose to pushing "Add To Cart" on this fun piece, until we realized the season of wearing white is too close to being over!
+ Which dress do you like better — Miranda's floral look or Chelsea's floaty white frock?
