Looks from the LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's December 2013 collection.
Life's a beach for Lauren Conrad right now. In the last two months alone, she's managed to nab a Cosmo cover AND one seriously studly fiancé. If I were LC, I'd be like, "Welp! I think that pretty much covers it for 2013. My job here is done." But instead of coasting through the remainder of December, Conrad decided to go all can't stop/won't stop on us by releasing a ton of sneak-peek pics from her latest LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's collection, which will hit stores later this month. Stacked with cozy knit sweaters, dainty dresses, and collared blouses, the winter line has made life (no joke) an ACTUAL beach for the designer, who modeled the collection on the sandy shores of Southern California.

Forget the Kanye West shoe collaboration you knew/loved/couldn't afford: Ye is leaving Nike for adidas. (How much are the existing Air Yeezys gonna go for now? Like, 10 billion dollars?) Kanye nonchalantly announced his new partnership during an interview with Hot 97 yesterday and while royalties seem to be the driving force behind the swap, adidas also offers more (dare we say it?) clothing design opportunities for Ye.
The Nike x Kanye partnership made total sense: Kanye loves Nikes and, as he mentioned in the Hot 97 interview, Yeezys made people excited for shoes in a way they hadn't been since the first release of Air Jordans. Kanye was the first and at the time for first inking the deal, only non-athlete working with Nike, which made him special, which, as we all know, is Kanye West's #1 fave thing. However, when Nike teamed up with Eminiem, the company was suddenly "not doing [him] any favors." And so, it seems if Kanye isn't going to be special anymore, he'd rather get royalties, which Nike wasn't offering to him.

After performing "Timber" together for the first time Sunday night at the American Music Awards, Pitbull and Ke$ha released the music video for their song via Pitbull's Facebook page yesterday. And it is SAUCY. Basically, it's kind of like they took two different music and spliced them together to look like one big global party. In the first, Ke$ha has a sexy hoedown in a saloon with a bunch of Coyote Ugly-types, while the second features Pitbull doing a lot of sexy dancing at a pristine beach with a ladyfriend. There's also some stray sharks swimming around, but they aren't very sexy at all.
Step aside, Angelina's right leg. There's a new show-stealing limb in town and it belongs to Gwen Stefani. More than a month after announcing that she'd be collaborating with OPI on her very own nail polish collection, Stefani flashed some majorly toned leg in one of two new promo pics posted on Twitter. Hey baby, hey baby, HEY. Both shots are totally drenched in a deep, rich red—from her dual-slit, Asian-inspired gown to her lips, nails and the background itself. It's striking, for sure, but it also happens to be the line's signature shade: Over & Over A-Gwen. SO PUNNY!
Leave it to Beyonce to give the world an exclusive sneak peek of her hubby’s highly anticipated and buzzed about holiday collection with luxury retailer Barneys. While the power couple attended a launch event at the flagship store in New York City to celebrate Jay Z’s latest collaboration, Beyonce took to Instagram to rep her man in all-Shawn-Carter-everything. Now ladies, if you caught yourself singing, "If I were a boyyyyyy, I'd shop Barney's Holiday Collection, too", don't fret. Beyonce is out to prove that Jay's got something for the ladies, too.
Let's start from the top. Beyonce is rockin’ the heck out of that snapback isn't she?! Now, this is no ordinary fitted, Barneys' Mixed Exotics Brooklyn Cap is a python brimmed leather Just Don sports cap with a $875 price tag. Then, there’s her sporty puffer jacket. This limited edition leather-sleeved varsity jacket is crafted with black channel-quilted nylon and costs a whopping $2,295. But money ain't a thang when you've got pockets like the Carters, right?
Ke$ha’s jewelry collaboration, Kesha Rose by Charles Albert, has been on shelves for a few months now. Any Animal will tell you that it’s totally weird, which is both a compliment and a testament to Ke$ha’s ability to translate her ~unique~ style sensibilities to an entire line of accessories. The pieces are broken up into mini-collections and are stacked with stunning stones, spikes, blue roses (her signature symbol) and penises. Yup, penises. Big, small, on rings, earrings and a necklace, the cartoonish male genitalia is undoubtedly the most *achem* recognizable item in the bunch.
Kanye West in his Yeezus Tour merch.

Who'd have thought Kanye West would be the biggest fan of his own Yeezus Tour merch? He's normally so humble about his work... JK JK! Just last week, he told us how "[he's] the number one, most influential person on the globe in fashion." So it's only fitting that 'Ye would model his own wares and show just how fresh" his Yeezus product really is.
A few days into the tour, there was a photo of Kanye wearing a T-shirt with a picture of Kim Kardashian on it, across which Yeezus was written. While that particular tee may have been a Kanye West exclusive (limited-edition, 1:1 HANH?!) because it hasn't been released yet, there are other options being sold on tour and in his LA pop-up shop.
Though he's yet to wear his PacSun gear, he has been spotted in one of the Wes Lang-illustrated joints featuring the Grim Reaper holding a bouquet of flowers, as well as a printed "Yeezus Tour" sweatshirt with the sleeves cut off (who doesn't love a remix?). He must really love the way it all looks with destroyed jeans (the same ones he wore on Jimmy Kimmel), since that's proved to be his go-to pairing. The repeated look (a rarity for the fashion plate) doesn't stop there: he's also worn his controversial, stars-and-bars, Confederate jacket twice (and counting).
The poster for Justin Bieber's The Key short film.

Up until now, the promo surrounding Justin Bieber's latest fragrance, The Key, involved silk sheets, sleeping, and a key. With the release of seemingly inexplicable The Key alarm clock app, we came to the conclusion that the entire campaign revolves around Bieber unlocking your door as you sleep and visiting you (IRL/in your dreams) and waking you up (hence the alarm clock). Today, Bieber tweeted a poster for a "short film" he's releasing for The Key. The perfume bottle and silk sheets are on the bottom half of the poster, but the top half introduces an entirely new element into the campaign: a girl who is not asleep, dreamin' of Bieber, but awake.

It's no secret that Nicki Minaj loves wearing clothes from her collaboration with Kmart. The jackets from the collection are just perfect to wear without a shirt underneath—she's done it twice. She also wore a pair of her own distressed, acid-wash jeans to perform during New York Fashion Week and rocked a matching two-piece look while sitting front row at Jeremy Scott. So when Minaj took the stage at Power 105.1’s Powerhouse concert this weekend, and (as usual) posted a pic of what she was wearing on Instagram, we had to take a closer look at her ensemble's familiar design.

Get excited, Lovatics (and general fans of nail art)! It’s your lucky day. Demi Lovato’s polish kit collaboration with The New Black has arrived earlier than anticipated and it’s everything we ever dreamed of (and more). The blue-haired singer and X Factor coach is forever flashing her on-point nail game (see here and here, for example), so when we heard that she’d be designing some stylish collections for the DIY-nail brand (alongside her ~personal~ manicurist), we were pretty pumped, to say the least. And while we thought we’d have to wait until November 1st to get a glimpse at the kits, it turns out they’re available online now! SQUEE!
