Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino during all four weeks.

Dancing With The Stars held its fourth results show of the season last night, and in heartbreaking news, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino of MTV's Jersey Shore got voted off. Sadly, his dance moves just didn't measure up! (Must've been the lack of fist pumps.) That means we won't be seeing any more of his sheer ab-revealing shirts anymore, which is perhaps even more devastating than his lackluster sashays and dips. Here, we review The Situation's four Dancing With The Stars outfits thus far, so we can remember for eternity how he wore sequins, satin, and see-through clothes for the world to see and love. Our favorite look had to be week 3 when The Situation danced the foxtrot, because no one rocked bedazzling better than the Sitch. He wore a sheer black top with leather shoulder pads featuring rhinestone trim. But which of these four outfits was your favorite?

Which Dancing With The Stars outfit looked hottest on The Situation?

+ WEEK 1: Half sheer top with an orange trim.

+ WEEK 2: Military chic dancing the quickstep.

+ WEEK 3: See-through shirts, leather shoulders, and rhinestones!

+ WEEK 4: Red hot in a red shirt and black bow tie. Sadly, the last outfit we'll ever see.

Lauren Conrad stopped by The Grove in Los Angeles to sign copies of her new books Sugar and Spice and Lauren Conrad Style over the weekend, and her animal instincts came out via her accessories. In particular, Lauren Conrad wore a diamond-encrusted ring in the shape of a panther on her right ring finger. Los Angeles-based jewelry designer Anita Ko is the one behind the design, which is available for $5,500 on Net-A-Porter.com. If you want something similar without the hefty price, try Rachel Roy's panther ring style for $48.

+ Would you wear a panther ring like Lauren Conrad's?

Gossip Girl's fifth episode of season 4, "Goodbye Columbia," premiered last night, and the plot was all about rumors. And the only thing to distract us from rumor mongering? Good fashion. One of our favorite looks was Vanessa Abrams' (Jessica Szohr) Catherine Malandrino dress and Pour La Victoire shoes. It was almost our favorite look of the night, but this week, the ladies in yellow topped our Most Fashionable List — Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wore a sunny Nanette Lepore dress, and Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) beamed in a canary yellow Madison Marcus top with Dolce & Gabbana shorts. But what's your favorite outfit? See every look below and decide.

'Tis the season to wear dark colors, and celebrities are embracing the color black for their footwear. Whitney Port wore a pair of chunky peep-toe booties by Givenchy to the Rolling Stone Hot Party in Las Vegas (where she met up with Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola of Jersey Shore), while Keira Knightley wore a pair of Miu Miu chunky black sandals to the Chanel spring 2011 fashion show in Paris. And finally, rising style star Kendall Jenner wore a pair of flat patent Christian Louboutin lace-ups to the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party, proving that you don't need a five-inch heel to look hot. Which pair of black shoes do you like best — Whitney, Keira, or Kendall's?

SCREW SHIRTS! If we followed the example of some of the leading ladies in Celebrityland, that's what they are showing us. On Saturday, Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham wore a black bra top that was attached to high-waisted pants to the BET Awards, an outfit she designed herself. In the latest issue of Marie Claire, Victoria Beckham covers the issue, and for her editorial wears a girdle $975 dress by Bordelle. And there's more ...

The summer was also filled with black bra tops. Rihanna pranced around Toronto in early August wearing a black bra top and gray skirt, while Lady Gaga made an epic appearance on the Today Show in the rain wearing a black bra underneath a black jumper by Giorgio Armani.

It seems like only the rich and fabulous can wear this look and get away with it — though, it is Halloween coming up. Do we sense lots of shirt-ditching and black bra exposure at the end of the month with these ladies in mind? Absolutely. Why waste money on shirts if bras are meant to be seen?

+ Would you wear your bra in public like Kat, Victoria, Rihanna, and Gaga?

Lauren Conrad is having a good week. Not only is the former Hills star busy promoting her two new book launches and developing a TV show about her design career, there are also new clothes from her LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's collection that were recently released, too! Her fall collection is entirely available now on Kohls.com, and we trolled the site for the six latest looks with Lauren Conrad modeling the clothes. Check out all of our top picks below!

1. LC Lauren Conrad Floral Ruched Tunic ($34).
Lauren loves white all year round, and so it's no wonder white appears in her fall collection. This top adds some color to a white top with a floral red pattern. Pair it with a skirt or jeans ... it could go dressy or dress-down. It's also available in blue.

2. LC Lauren Conrad Floral Banded Bottom Top ($34).
Lauren Conrad pulled in purple for her fall 2010 collection, and this top features a great floral pattern. It also comes in blue and gray.

3. LC Lauren Conrad Brushstroke Ruffle Tank ($40).
This is a top pick because it can be worn many ways. Try wearing it under a cardigan or chunky sweater, and it's so perfect for fall. It comes in blue, but the purple version like the one Lauren is wearing is our favorite.

4. LC Lauren Conrad Floral Pintuck Dress ($60).
With these dresses, it's clear that Lauren Conrad designs dresses with her personal style in mind. We can see Lauren wearing this strapless black and purple floral dress on the red carpet, which is why it's out of our top picks.

5. LC Lauren Conrad Bow Dress ($60).
This bow dress is our favorite! We love the sheer element at the top of the dress and the fun bow pattern that covers it. The ruffle details at the bottom only add to the charm of this piece.

6. LC Lauren Conrad Floral Tiered Dress ($60).
This Lauren Conrad dress definitely features more structure with a tiered skirt, V-neck top, and cap sleeves. Take a style cue from Lauren Conrad and cinch the waist with a belt to pull the look together. While Lauren shows off the dress in ivory, it's also available in pink, which we prefer.

7. LC Lauren Conrad Embellished Sweater ($60).
If we had to pick one go-to sweater for fall from Lauren Conrad's Kohl's collection, this would be it. It starts out with a comfortable sweater, but the chain detail along the arm and neckline add an edge that makes it much better than your typical fall sweater.

Lauren Conrad, seasoned alum of MTV's The Hills and star of a new, yet-to-be-named MTV show, appeared at the Upper East Side Barnes & Noble in New York City yesterday to sign copies of her new books, Lauren Conrad Style and Sugar and Spice. The 24-year-old star dazzled in a lace white sheath dress by Notte by Marchesa, proving that, yes, you can wear white after Labor Day, after all! Today, MTV Style caught up with the designers of Marchesa, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, for more details about the look, which is available for $660 at Net-A-Porter.com. The designers shared an exclusive sketch of the dress, which you can see above (it was sketched on gray paper since the dress is white). We absolutely love the look on Lauren Conrad! It's kind of bridal-looking, but the dress would totally be perfect for a holiday party, since those are coming up soon, don't you think?

Lady Gaga has made a name for herself as much for her music as for her outrageous style. (How can you forget the meat dress?) But what's spectacular about her fashion choices is her ability to catapult the careers of rising design stars. Like 22-year-old menswear designer Asher Levine. The Port Charlotte, Florida native dressed Lady Gaga not once, but twice, in the past few months, finding his clothes on her just weeks after he graduated college at New York's Pace University. First, Lady Gaga wore Asher's black motorcycle jacket in Rolling Stone's July issue, and she wore his white straightjacket coat to her Today Show performance. MTV Style caught up with Asher Levine, who just presented his second full collection at New York Fashion Week, at his home base in New York City to find out how he went from student to dressing Lady Gaga in record time.

When did you start designing?
Asher Levine: "Since I was a little boy, I was always sitting at the sewing machine. It's the only option for me. I've always felt the same way from the very beginning about fashion — I love it to an obsessive, obsessive degree. Two days after I graduated high school I got on a plane and moved to New York City [in 2006] to pursue a business degree at Pace University. I knew how to make clothes, I needed to know accounting, marketing and all the things fashion school leaves out."

Who do you design for?
"There are certain people that transcend the boundaries of gender. Look at Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Madonna. Look at Lady Gaga. These are figures throughout our recent history that have transcended gender and represent something that's greater. And that's who I'm connecting with."

How were you discovered?
"Nicola Formichetti's team (Lady Gaga's stylist) contacted me and said someone recommended me. They got in contact, and I said let's do it. I respect Gaga because she's cognizant about what's been done in the past, and she knows how to push the boundaries and make new fashion, music, or art."

From the streets of NYC to the cover of 'Rolling Stone,' Lady Gaga makes the most of her Asher Levine motorcycle jacket.

What was your process like to design the oversize motorcycle jacket she wore in Rolling Stone?
"I would make a sketch. I would send it to Nicola, and then if Nicola approves it, he sends it to Lady Gaga, and then it trickles down. A lot of times, I do a sketch and they say, 'Can it be like this or like that?' Then, once he says it's good, I do a muslin (light fabric) version. I build the muslin version, take a picture, send it to them, and they say 'let's do it.' "

How long did it take to create the jacket?
"With Gaga, they only give you a couple days, so you better crank it out quickly. Depending on how complicated the piece is, about a week."

What was it like designing the white straightjacket coat for her Today Show appearance?
"When she kicked off her Monster Ball tour, they said they wanted a new jacket. They wanted purple at first, so I got three whole cows in purple. It's a lot of skin. It takes about 200 square feet of animal skin to make one of those oversize coats. At the last minute, they go, 'We want it to be white.' So I went back my factory and found all these nice lambskins and cut that up and put it together. And I'm really happy how it turned out."

Did you hit any snags while designing for Lady Gaga?
"When we were doing the white straightjacket we worked from 7 a.m. to 4 in the morning the next day. We needed to deliver it to her at the Today Show. They said you have to get it to us 5 a.m. Out of nowhere it's 4 a.m., so I hop in a cab with this whole motorcycle straightjacket — and I pull up to 48th street and it was MAYHEM. I was literally hand-sewing the tag into the jacket on my way to the Today Show in the cab."

What has Lady Gaga done for your career?
"I think she represents my future customer. Because she's looked at so highly, she legitimized that standpoint of this new mentality of clothing—of being unique. She helped it immensely, and I'm excited to work with her more in the future."

Are you working on more for Lady Gaga?
"I totally expect to be. I get along with her team. It changes my direction, and that’s why I like to collaborate with these artists."

What are you trying to convey through your clothes?
"There's a revolution happening right now within humanity, not just fashion. It's a revolution of uniqueness of the individual. Many artists are tapping into this energy, and I'm interpreting it through fashion. What I'm doing in fashion, I'm defining the new man and how he presents himself in the world and how to make him look as sexy as possible. When you think of someone who looks sexy, how do you define that? I'm using different types of fabrics that define a new sexuality and masculinity."

What are you inspired by?
"I look at inspiration [in] everyday weird things. I think it's important to look at things that are outside of your box of understanding, like organisms that are zoomed in 40,000 times. I fill my head with that, and when I pick up the chalk or charcoal, it all manifests itself in that one stroke so it comes together collectively."

Where can people buy your collection?
"It's available at OAK in New York and online. The price ranges from $150 for a shirt or tank pants for $250 to $350 and fur pieces up to $4,000 for a jacket like Lady Gaga's."

+ Would you wear Asher Levine's designs like Lady Gaga?
