It's Monday, which means we need something bright and fabulous to start the day ... so thank you, , for introducing us to your hot pink striped batwing top. The 17-year-old singer/iCarly star performed at the Country Fair Entertainment Park in Medford, New York on Friday wearing this outfit, and we hope her loose, highlighter-bright striped top kept her nice and cool onstage, because the weather was st-st-steamy this weekend.
But her look isn't all girly: She punks things up with black cut-off shorts, a chunky belt buckle, and stacks of studded bracelets and beaded necklaces. And just when you thought she was all laid-back and hipster ... check out her SHOES. Those black stiletto booties with silver grommet detailing show that the girl's got some diva in her blood, for sure. You gotta love a lady who can mix glam with grunge in 90-degree weather.

Kendra Wilkinson in Alexander McQueen.
Another summer week down, and while it seems like all our feet have seen are flip-flops, we spotted some more hot shoes on the red carpet this week. Who satisfied our shoe fetishes the most were the lovely ladies at the ESPY Awards, like Ashley Greene's smokin' hot Brian Atwood pumps, Cheryl Burke's golden heels, and Tichina Arnold's strappy magenta platforms.
But the most scandalous footwear of the week award? Kendra Wilkinson! She wore four-inch platform pumps with silver skulls — that's right, SKULLS — on the toes by the late and legendary designer Alexander McQueen, who passed away just this past winter. We hope he'd be glad that his shoes are being worn by a — errrr — wide variety of people (yay for fashion democracy!). But part of us worries he might be rolling over in his grave, as Kendra has been known for her um, less than tasteful fashion choices. But hey, maybe she's turning over a new leaf! A high fashion leaf! Could it be?

There's something about Lady Gaga fans — excuse us, Little Monsters — that gets us going. We're obsessed with her followers almost as much as we love her. They're EVERYWHERE. She has 12,543,369 fans on Facebook (and counting!), her Tweets send Monsters worldwide reeling, and GagaDaily.com is a go-to Internet site. That's why we had to see Little Monster style with our own eyes when Gaga swung through New York last week. And just like Gaga herself, the Little Monsters we spotted took all of her enviable qualities like energy, creativity, eccentricity, and self-expression and channeled it through themselves (including quite a few people who wrapped themselves in caution tape from the "Telephone" video). As Gaga fan Jonathan told us, with a Diet Coke can roller in his hair: "She inspires me to the fullest. I think I'm going to idolize her for the rest of my life." Watch the video and see for yourself.

Leigh Lezark, Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet, and Zoe Lister-Jones.
When we walked into the Alice + Olivia and M.A.C. makeup collection launch party last night at Beauty Bar in New York, we expected to get slammed with funky neon colors everywhere. Why? Because FUNKY is the feeling of the new makeup she designed for M.A.C. — yellow and nude lip glosses, teal and purple nail polishes, and pigments in punchy summer hues. After all, the makeup had to represent the label — designed by Stacey Bendet — which is known for its fun party dresses, especially ones overloaded with sequins. (One of its biggest fans is AnnaLynne McCord, who wears A + O clothes ALL THE TIME ... we'd guess one out of every three red carpets.)
But the party was no Neon Nation. Instead, guests leaned more towards black, white, and red. Leigh Lezark of The Misshapes wore a white blouse and black bottoms (leather bike shorts?), while actress Zoe Lister-Jones also wore black shorts, and paired it with a red blouse that exposed her periwinkle bra. But someone had to bring the sequins and it was none other than Bendet. Yes, girl. SPARKLE. She also rocked red lips and some serious cat-eyes like only a real diva can.
We caught up with Bendet at the party — where there were ladies lined up for free turquiose manis like tweens at a Bieber concert — to chat about her new makeup collection for M.A.C. She also spilled about sharing her closet with AnnaLynne McCord (we knew AnnaLynne had to have the hookup!) and what she loves and hates about this summer's beauty trends. Spoiler: this fair-skinned beauty has strong feelings about Jersey Shore tans. Read on.

It was a parade of primary colors at the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles last night, with Ashley Greene, Amber Rose, and Danica Patrick arriving in bold, juicy hues. Ashley’s asymmetrical strawberry-hued Versace number matched the red carpet almost perfectly, and had a scene-stealing slit up the side. Next on the color wheel was Kanye West's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, whose vibrant yellow Natalia Romano gown swept all the way to the floor. And rounding things out, race car driver Danica Patrick wore a bright blue peplum cocktail dress. Is it just us, or does this make anyone want to play with crayons?

Courtney Love — fashion blogger? We think so! We've been following Courtney Love's Twitter feed for a while now, and today something very interesting popped up ... a link to a new Tumblr blog focusing on the singer's style, named WhatCourtneyWoreToday.com. Basically, she posts pictures of her outfits (usually snapped while lounging around the house) with musings about what she's wearing and why. And it's not a CL poser running the show — she's definitely the one behind it! She Tweeted about two hours ago that the new site is "up and running" and also that she's helping her management group Crush update the site.
Even though it just kicked off today, there are already 25-plus posts about her outfits on it, including designer mentions of Rick Owens, Balenciaga (she will rant about this label on Twitter if you don't know it already!), Givenchy, Narciso Rodriguez, and more. Welcome to the fashion blogosphere, Court! From what we see already, we're expecting plenty more photos of you rolling around on your couch in expensive clothes to come.

Alexis Jordan is an 18-year-old singer on the rise. She got her start on America's Got Talent, and then started posting videos of herself singing on YouTube. But the big whammie came when Jay-Z signed her to Roc Nation earlier this year (which sparked some people to call her next Rihanna, watch out!). Her first single, Happiness, dropped recently and it's a peppy song that also totally embodies her positive spirit and style.
So, we sat down with the diva-in-training recently to find out about her casual, fun look. "My style relates to my music definitely with the positive aspect," she told us. "I want to show girls that you don't have to show your body to be noticed. You want to keep that mystery. So I want to keep that mystery as my career goes on."
Also — that beautiful red hair you see is REAL and NATURAL and she spends three hours a day on it! "I've had people come up to me and feel inside my hair and be like 'Is that your real hair? Is that your real color? What number is it?'" Freaky! "Yes, people are obsessed with my hair! I hope it doesn't become a trending topic one day."

Material Girl — the clothing line Madonna and teen daughter Lourdes Leon designed for Macy's — drops in 18 days. That's so soon!!! And since we're getting closer, we've spotted more pictures of the clothes (via Teen Vogue), all of which are eighties-inspired and priced between $12 and $40. We're looking at more rocker-chick-meets-hipster-meets-eighties for the collection, including a leather vest and leopard ballet flats ($20).

The Hills series may be drawing to a close tonight (tune in at 10 p.m. EST!), but that doesn't mean we've seen the last of Audrina Patridge. After starring in ads for Divine Rights of Denim last year, the 25-year-old scored another modeling gig as the new face of Bongo's fall collection, which drops this fall at Kmart and Sears — just in time for back to school shopping. And if her job is to sell jeans with just a picture, she's doing a good job at making sure you look at her ... by skipping bras and rocking crop tops. And lest we get distracted by Audrina's midriff, let's not forget that Bongo is predominantly a jeans line, and the pairs she's modeling in these pics are pretty cute.

Like stripes? Liv Tyler does. The actress slipped on a striped black-and-white blazer from Givenchy's spring collection to a party for Dennis Hopper at the Museum of Contemporary Art this weekend in Los Angeles. And she's not the only one who loves 'em. We spotted the exact same jacket on Keri Hilson when wore it to sing the national anthem at the Lakers vs. Hawks game on March 31. Kim Kardashian also has a similar black-and-white striped jacket, though we're pretty sure this isn't the designer version — look closely at the pattern of stripes on the lapel ... you can tell.
