Did you see Sandra Bullock bump and grind with Betty White at the Teen Choice Awards? Well, she did! And she boogied in some shiny pants. The jeans are the 912 Waxed Venom Skinny Jeans by J Brand (a brand that's also a favorite of Taylor Lautner). They're available for $198 at NeimanMarcus.com. Get those legs shiny!

Lipstick is the new place to get crazy with color (nope, it's not just nails, anymore!). Just take a look at the latest trend in lip color — rainbow brights. Back in May, singer VV Brown showed up to the 30th anniversary party for Express with green lips, and Ke$ha painted her pout bright blue at Casio's Shock the World event last week. So, how do you get your lips to look like you just had an insane makeout session with a smurf?

The 2010 Video Music Awards are still over a month away (September 12, mark your calendar!), which means we're getting fun little teasers now, like new images from Nicki Minaj's promo shoot. Judging from her fifties-inspire outfits, we're already excited for the style that's going to come from that night's show. Think Old Hollywood glamour with a twist of sexy, spandex, and wigs.
Here are our 5 favorite things about Nicki Minaj's VMA promo-shoot looks: Read More...

Zoe Kravitz's modeling career continues! After she starred as the face of Vera Wang's Princess fragrance last year, she's posing for another designer Wang — Alexander Wang!
Today, WWD reported that Alexander Wang hired the 21-year-old actress (and spawn of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz) to appear in his fall ad campaign for his lower-priced line T by Alexander Wang. She'll star alongside handsome male model Max Motta, who previously modeled for Tommy Hilfiger, Dior Homme, and Tom Ford.
Not that we didn’t see this pairing coming. After all, the designer brought her as his guest to the Costume Institute Gala in New York in May (along with M.I.A., see right). Plus, she's a true fan of the designer, as she's had his leopard-print Diego bucket bag glued to her side this summer — and it’s been one of our favorite looks for the season.
Maybe she's his new muse? Perhaps. In any case, the Zoe photos won’t drop until Thursday, which means this week just got THAT MUCH LONGER for us.
Taylor Jacobson landed on the fashion scene as the sassy, impeccably-dressed, no-nonsense stylist assistant from Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project. But after four years of working with celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe (and dressing celebs like Demi Moore and Molly Sims), two seasons of reality television, and one buzzed-about breakup with her former boss, the Los Angeles-based Taylor is making her own way, styling on a number of movies and commercials and working with a host of private clients. Now, she’s also trying her hand at design, collaborating with Kasil to create a line of jeans, which are now available in stores like Bloomingdale’s, Ron Herman, and online at Kasil Workshop for $119 to $195. Last night, we talked to Taylor to get her take on denim, California-girl style, and back-to-school fashion. Oh, and did she watch this week’s third season premiere of her ex-boss’s Bravo show? Read on to find out. Read More...
Avon party on August 4, BET Awards on June 27.

Fergie is a flapper! At least, she like flaps on her dresses, particularly in the hip area. Last night, at the launch party for her Avon Outspoken fragrance in Newark, New Jersey, she wore a black dress with ochre panels on both sides of her body. Typically, these are amazing slimming colors when worn together, except the light-hued ruffles that draped down the front of her hips and over her rump counterbalanced the whole optical illusion effect. And she's done this before. At the BET Awards in June, Fergie wore a black and white paneled dress with a tailcoat down the back by Antonio Berardi. Are you as puzzled as we are by her obsession with these extra-material dresses? Especially, when she looks so amazing minus the hip/butt flaps, like in something like this.
+ Do you like her extra-emphasized assets? Or should she drop the flaps?
The costume retailer Costume Craze is launching a collection of Lady Gaga-inspired costumes that are set to drop in time for Halloween (less than three months away!), and images of the line just dropped. So, we browsed through the looks, and the clothes don't just mimic the superstar, they are EXACT interpretations of her outfits, such as the American Flag two-piece from 'Telephone,' and her white outfit from the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards (which is our favorite, for obvious reasons). But, WAIT, isn't the best part about dressing up like Lady Gaga is that her little monsters make their own costumes? You tell us.
+ Would you wear one of these Lady Gaga costumes?

Taylor Momsen performed at the launch party for Madonna's new clothing line for Macy's last night in New York (she's the face of the line). Usually, she wears heavy eye-makeup for her performances (see above left), but last night she kept her eyeliner choices mysterious behind a pair of round shades. But that wasn't all that was different. Momsen ditched the garter-belt style she's been rocking all summer and wore black over-the-knee boots and a pair of pants. YES, PANTS. But once one thing goes on, another comes off! Instead of a full-length top, she wore a cropped, navel-exposing black bustier, which she covered with a black Material Girl motorcycle jacket. Well, you can't keep a girl from wearing her underwear as outerwear if she really wants to, that's for sure.
+ Which Taylor look do you prefer — garter belt or pants?
And now, a public service announcement, from your shopping-obsessed friends:
Madonna and daughter Lourdes’s Material Girl clothing line just dropped, and it's online for your shopping glory. There’s material here for every kind of girl, if you know what we mean: Boyfriend shirts, studded tees, destroyed denim leggings, and some awesome handbags for good measure. There’s even a tiered tulle tutu-esque skirt ($22), which we’ve seen on everyone from Katy Perry to Natalie Portman. Plus, at around $20 per item, it's guilt-free spending. Planning to scoop some pieces up? We are, and we're not even teenagers! Happy shopping.
