We've all been there: you're over at your most fashionable friend's house, just hanging out, and all of a sudden she says, "hey, I have all these clothes I need to give away, do you want to look through them?" Out come the garbage bags, or the hangers, or the boxes, and onto the bed go all the clothes you've been coveting when you've seen her wearing, ripe for your greedy little hands to pick. We know we've gotten some of our favorite items this way, not to mention by scouring the racks at our favorite vintage and thrift shops, from the carefully curated to the downright dirty. Well now imagine if that fashionable friend was actually one of your all time greatest fashion idols. Imagine if that friend was Kim Gordon, music icon as a member of Sonic Youth, fashion icon as a front row fixture at Rodarte and Marc Jacobs' shows at New York Fashion Week, and perhaps most importantly, fashion designer. Kim was a founder of the legendary clothing line X-Girl, and went on to collaborate with Urban Outfitters, Surface To Air, and others on lines. She is also a fashion maven, and we've always longed to be able to take a peek into her closet. Thanks to Oakland, California vintage retailer Mercy Vintage we get to do way more than that--not only can we take a peek into Kim's closet, but we can take home what we love, too. (Don't worry, the collection will be available online.) The sale starts on September 1, but, thanks to our friends at Refinery29, we have some insider info for you right now!

Every time Odd Future plays a show in a new city, you can almost be certain they'll open a new corresponding Golf Wang pop-up shop. The skate hip-hop collective spread the OF love to Paris with a week-long pop-up at the City of Lights's world-famous Colette. On top of the grip of new Golf Wang merch with which they flooded the Colette shelves, Tyler, the Creator, Domo Genesis, Hodgy Beats, Left Brain, and much of the rest of the OFWGKTA crew paid a special visit to the store yesterday afternoon.

Chloe Sevigny in New York wearing the "Against Playground Rules" Dress, also available at Rent The Runway.

Ever since her days as a '90s kid in New York (not to mention her unforgettable House of Style cameo!) Chloe Sevigny has always been THE fashion magnet to follow. But if you really want to copy the actress/designer's clothes- and we mean literally score her capsule collection from Opening Ceremony- the problem is, it's gonna cost you. While the goods from the Chloe Sevigny for OC line run up to $700, we've found a way to snag the adorable outfits on the cheap. Well, one of them, at least. Rent The Runway (yep, the same site that gave us Katy Perry's swirly blue Viktor & Rolf number) has just stocked Chloe's "Against The Playground Rules Dress" for an indisputably affordable $75.

Lady Gaga Fame

What does Lady Gaga's Fame perfume smell like?

Hear that? That's the sound of Lady Gaga's much-anticipated Fame perfume FINALLY hitting Macy's shelves across the country! We've been trailer teased and taunted with jaw-dropping campaign photos for the better half of the last two months, but now (NOW!!!!) we can finally get our hands on Mother Monster's debut fragrance and answer all our burning questions. Will the "First Black Eau de Parfum" really change colors? Will it stain my clothes? What exactly does "tears of Belladonna, crushed heart of the tiger orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot, and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops" smell like??? Walk with us.

Alexa Chung.

We're not ashamed to admit that we get a little jealous when we look at Alexa Chung's Instagram feed. Between the glamorous parties and her ever-perfect fringe, the DJ/Model/lady-about-town has a truly fashionable life, and since we're already coveting the cute little dresses and tomboy looks that she rocks on a daily basis, we know that her original designs would be beyond on point. Alexa revealed that she's "looking into" starting her own line in an interview with Numero Tokyo, for which she is the October cover star, adding that she's "got nothing to lose, it's a bit of fun." She went on to say that she actually does all of the sketches herself, but added that these days nobody believes that celebrity designers are really in charge of their own designs: "So if it sucks [she] can say [she] had nothing to do with it, and if it’s really good [she] can say ‘Here are the drawings, it’s all my own work!" While we have no doubt that her line would actually be awesome, it just makes us like her even more that she's so funny about the whole thing.

We actually can't believe it's taken Ms. Chung this long to start her own line. She's been at the top of our fashion radar for years now, and it seems like the most natural thing in the world.

Looks like Theophilus London is adding another collaboration to his fashion resume. Hot on the heels of his limited edition Del Toro slippers and Cole Haan blue suede shoes, Theo is branching out from collaborative kicks to clothing. The Brooklyn electro-rapper is linking his LVRS brand with streetwear giant Stussy. Theo teased the forthcoming collab via Instagram yesterday, first previewing a Stussy x LVRS t-shirt with athletic name and number styling on the back, but that's not all!

James Franco: Renaissance Man.

Ok so it's old news that James Franco can do anything he wants, and not just because he's a smokin' hot Hollywood actor. He's added about as many slashes to his career description as should be allowed by law (actor/director/writer/photographer/academic/need we go on?), but now he's adding another one (kind of): fashion designer. Ok so that's not totally true--Franco isn't designing his own line or anything--but he is lending some of his photographs to Seven For All Mankind for a special edition series of T-shirts for Fashion's Night Out. Women's Wear Daily has the scoop--and photos of the designs, which will be available in stores and online starting on September 6th, and will retail for a cool $89.00. The tees come in white, black, and heather gray and are printed with Franco's polaroids, taken around Los Angeles. They have a burnt out, classic Hollywood vibe that's also part streetwear, and totally awesome.

James also directed a series of campaign vignettes for the brand, and in fact, the images for Franco's tees were taken during filming for those shorts. They feature Los Angeles landmarks as well as pictures of the cast of the campaign, including Lily Donaldson. The t-shirts are also signed by Franco, who said that the inspiration for the campaign was "a merging of new and old Hollywood," as represented by classic Hollywood scenery and new Hollywood talent.

What do you think of James Franco's tees for Seven For All Mankind?

Jay-Z performs in a leather Brooklyn Nets snapback.

It's true. Jay-Z really can make a Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can. But when you're at the helm of a massive rebrand for a different sports team - enter the formerly New Jersey, now Brooklyn Nets - it's probably time to switch snapbacks. Even if it's one-of-one with a python overlain brim and gold buckle. *pours a little out for the fallen headgear* For years, Jay-Z has been lending favor via his status as a sartorial tastemaker to the Bronx Bombers, but with the impending opening of the shiny new Brooklyn Barclays Center around the corner, he's switching headgear (LUHHHH that leather Nets cap) and public focus across the river.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
