If you've ever wanted to dress like Gwen Stefani, pulling off her punky, polished look is about to become a whole lot easier (abdominal prep optional). After having stepped away from designing for L.A.M.B. in recent years, WWD reports that Stefani is ready to get back into the fashion game with the help of denim guru Michael Glasser (who's behind 7 For All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, and Rich & Skinny). But instead of continuing to focus on the profitable wardrobe staple that he's known for, Glasser says their label, DWP (Design With Purpose), actually aims to add a few new basics.

A new year means a new class of music x brand collaborations and up first is Gwen Stefani’s long-awaited nail polish line for OPI. We first reported on the perfectly matched collaboration last October (Stefani has always been a nail art pro and a pioneer at the intersection of music and fashion) and, last November, posted the leggy and very platinum promo pics for the line’s signature shade, “Over & Over.” Now you can grab the collection at ULTA—with the exception of “Over & Over” (no word yet on when that shade will be available for sale).

So many Nicki Minajs for Kmart!

At the beginning of November, before she decided to hibernate and leave us in the lurch, Nicki Minaj previewed one of the looks she'd be wearing in a commercial for her Kmart collection on Instagram. Well, that commercial was finally released, and it doesn't just feature Nicki in one outfit but multiple Nickis in multiple outfits! It's like a remake of Multiplicity starring Nicki Minaj! If you thought Lady Gaga wore a lot of wigs, just wait till you see how many Nicki manages to include in a 30-second commercial.

Kanye West

Kanye is excited about his collaboration with adidas.

While there has still been no confirmation on Adidas' end, Kanye West revealed that his collaboration with the company is, in fact, going forward and will launch in September. The details of what exactly will be released remain a mystery, but Kanye told Chicago DJs Stylz & Roman that he and Adidas would have "something in September." Oh, right, he's also designing clothing and will have stand-alone stores. Looks like Adidas is making Ye's wildest dreams come true!

When we first heard news of his partnership with Adidas, we posited that the company must've offered him a pretty sweet deal that extended beyond designing shoes. It seems, at least according to Kanye, they have. Ye mentioned that he had just returned from Germany, where he visited the Adidas headquarters and had one of the "greatest creative days of [his] life." He seems genuinely excited about the people he is working with and the resources he's been offered to "paint with." Maybe 2014 will be feature a calm and collected Kanye speaking softly about fashion rather than ranting against it?

Kanye West

Kanye West was full of fashion-centric quotables this year.

Aside from the birth of his first child, an epically romantic proposal to girlfriend/baby mama Kim Kardashian, and releasing one of the most critically debated albums of the year, which was then accompanied by a massive, production-heavy national tour, 2013 was kinda quiet for Kanye West, amirite?? I mean, like, we BARELY heard a peep outta the guy! *pauses for effect, then busts up in belly laughs* NAAAHHHHTTTTT. If anything, we've never heard so much of Yeezy. Especially on the topic of fashion.

Ye's year-long commentary on/battle with the fashion industry has kept us busy for the duration of 2013. Between lyrics likening his experience putting together his own line to picking cotton and others that publicly acknowledge Forever 21, Mr. West gave his 2 infinity cents on the subject of style, and we've distilled the stand-outs.

Is Kanye collaborating with A.P.C. again?

By now, it’s become routine for Kanye x A.P.C. collaborations to be revealed on the low in magazine profiles—which is seriously shocking given how vocal Ye is. Recall how the pair’s first time working together was revealed in one unassuming sentence—"That might be accomplished by his new men’s capsule collection of jeans, T-shirts, and hoodies for a hip French brand, to be unveiled in July"—that took a few glances to unearth thanks to the endless Yisms sprinkled throughout the piece. Well, according to a recent profile of A.P.C.’s founder Jean Touitou at Business of Fashion, the pair will unleash another capsule collection. "If I do a collection with Kanye West, obviously I’m taking risks," Touitou told BoF, who then wrote "Touitou confirms that A.P.C. will collaborate with...Kanye West...again."

Back in early November, Nicki Minaj posted a photo to her Instagram wearing a chain-print dress from her Nicki Minaj Collection for Kmart, which wasn't included in the fall line. That got us wondering whether her Minajesty was, in fact, designing a second season for Kmart and, well, we just got our answer: She is!

Nicki, after a brief Instagram and Twitter hiatus (never leave us again!), posted pictures of herself in a multicolored graffiti-print dress with the caption, "NickiMinajSpringCollection #SneakPeak." This print is definitely new, but the signature cut and fit resembled her fall collection. It seems safe to say most of Nicki's designs are going to be both tight and short. Or they'll work with no shirt on underneath. Every designer has her classic looks.

Bieber's new kicks?

Over the weekend, Justin Bieber shared a photo of some fresh white kicks with the caption, "New Adidas I designed." Say whaaat? Man, Bieber really IS following in Kanye's footsteps. First, he wears a kilt in his "All That Matters" video, and now he's designing shoes for Adidas? Swag. Unfortunately, other than this Instagram post, little information has been shared about this apparent collaboration. One source told us that they could possibly hit shelves in the spring, but nothing will be confirmed until after the holidays. HMPH! *crosses arms, pouting* We don't appreciate being teased, especially where shoes are concerned. Shoes and/or Justin Bieber, actually. (The lengthy lead-up to that short film for The Key was pure agony.)

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.

Kanye West

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.

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