Looks from Lauren Conrad's pre-spring 2012 Paper Crown line.

Even though Hillsie Lauren Conrad writes a business column for Forbes, dishes out beauty tips on her website, and has an ever-growing clothing/shoe/jewelry line for Kohl's, she has made it pretty clear that Paper Crown is still, above all, her "passion project". The collection, which first debuted its fall 2011 line earlier this year, features tons of whimsical maxi dresses, cropped leather jackets, and holiday-ready ensembles. We were SO STOKED to find that her collection landed at Nordstrom so everyone can purchase her items with ease, but we already wanted to know WHAT'S NEXT?! Then BAM, her pre-spring 2012 lookbook lands in our inbox, and we're PUMPED. Her warm-weather pieces feature pale pink mesh ruched dresses, work-ready pleated skirts, and billowy floral maxis. Even peep the photo above for a taste of what's to come—nautical striped boatneck sweaters and shorts, floppy hats, and printed miniskirts. Funnnn! Check out the entire lookbook below for her entire pre-spring 2012 collection (we call dibs on the platform pumps!).

This Saturday, Beyoncé launched the newest House of Dereon collection alongside mom and business partner, Tina Knowles, at Selfridges as part of London Fashion Week. The mind-bending speed with which she eased from attending New York Fashion Week shows to strutting down a catwalk across the Atlantic for her own line in a sparkly black suit cut to there (all while PREGNANT like it's NBD) is totally baffling and evocative of many wild fist-shakes and utterances of "HOW does she DO it?!!" Though admittedly, we're not the authority on maternity wear by any stretch of the imagination, we're not convinced that anyone could rock a full-body sequins situation whilst gestating another human being quite like Miss Bey, and for that, we light another candle and add it to the shrine (you know you have one, too).

OH MY GAHHHH, Snooki's sunglasses line is HEREEE! We've been anxiously awaiting the release of her collection after she tweeted a sneak peek of her hot pink "Poof Nation" shades nearly a month ago. Her line, appropriately named Snooki by Nicole Polizzi, features tons of oversized graphic sunnies decorated in everything from leopard print to studs to actual chains. The description of each item tells us that EVERY pair is ready for "hitting up the club" (which…is interesting because don't you go to the club at night? WE DON'T JUDGE.), so our Jersey Shore girl makes it simple to look rock-star ready in a snap.
Kylie Jenner will make her runway debut at Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn show this New York Fashion Week.

It looks as though Kendall Jenner isn't the only aspiring teen model in her household. Kendall's 14-year-old sister, Kylie Jenner, will be making her runway debut at Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn show this New York Fashion Week. A few things are probably jumping out at you right now, the main one (maybe) being that here we have again another 14-year-old model running amok in the fashion world. (Well, OK, maybe not "amok" and maybe not "running" because that's hard to do in heels, and we would know.)
A still from Nicole Richie's 2011 Fall campaign video for House of Harlow 1960.

Backpedal with me for a sec to a few months ago. It was mid/late April, if you're really following along. We caught one Miss Vanessa Hudgens and the fashion-forward Nicole Richie BOTH sporting a quizzical head accessory that we could only describe accurately as a "head thong." I meannnn, what would you call it? It's a piece of stringy head jewelry bisecting your dome in what looks like (to us, at least, as we suffer from insane levels of immaturity, snickering at potty humor, yadda yadda) a bit of a rump-like fashion. Now the crown adornment has resurfaced in Nicole Richie's fall campaign for her jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960, parting her tousled waves with such bohemian efficacy.

The wait is OVER! Whitney Port has just released her Fall 2011 Lookbook for Whitney Eve, which meanssss the collection will start hitting boutiques right about NOW. Which, of course, means that we'll be able to get a piece of the line ourselves pretty soon! For now, we're content to whet our appetites with the urban boho lookbook and memories of the African-inspired line's runway show back in March while we keep a watchful eye on our local racks. The unexpected color combinations, jewel and earth tones, tribal geometrics, and adventurous silhouettes are all perfect mix-and-match separates for back to school or whatever you're heading back to this fall (Work? Home? The grocery store? Chances are good you've probably changed geographic coordinates at some point and have to return SOMEWHERE eventually, right??). Personally, we're WAY into the printed vest and that gorgeous knotted olive maxi skirt. Peep the rest of the lookbook after the jump!
Lauren Conrad for Kohl's.

Just a couple weeks ago, Hillsie Lauren Conrad released her entire Fall 2011 LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl's, and THIS week we found videos of her dishing on her favorite outfit from the line, fall wardrobe tips, and what inspired her collection. Not only does Lauren look absolutely adorbs while talking about her top looks, but um, she chose super indie band The Drums as her soundtrack! (Cue the Weird Vibes creators doing a slow clap.) The best part about these videos though is that you can buy the products from her line AS she's talking about them! WHHOOAA. Technology is SUH-WEET. Let's see what LC had to say!
Snooki on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

It's clearer than ever that our girl Snooki is most def catalyzing her very own "style revolution," building herself into a Jersey Shore mogul with quite literally a FLEET of Snooki-branded products and literature. Like any good hands-on businesswoman, she's taking to the streets (and by "streets," we actually mean "network television") to promote her work, hooking people up with Snooki swag all along the way. During last night's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno appearance, she discussed the upcoming fall release of her fragrance. Though no name or actual scent notes were revealed, she DID drop that it definitely won't smell like pickles—not that she didn't already try out the idea.

Last week, Natali Germanotta (the sister of Stefani Germanotta, or for anyone not eating/living/breathing Monster-ism, Lady Gaga) teased the fact that she would be making stage costumes for Broadway. No duh, we thought. Of course, we thought. She's Gaga's sister, we thought. But now the U.K. pub Grazia has juicily added that Natali and her big sister are going to make their own clothing line.

Looks like Kanye West isn't the only music superstar to be showing for the first time at this year's New York Fashion Week. According to Fashionista, punk-pop princess Avril Lavigne will be presenting her line Abbey Dawn on the catwalk Monday, Sept. 12 at 6 p.m. at Style 360-Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC.
