The City alum Olivia Palermo has been piling on the layers, wearing everything (but the kitchen sink) to fashion shows from New York City to London...and we sort of love it! For the Matthew Williamson show on Feb. 20 in London, Olivia went cowgirl in a knitted turtleneck, furry cream coat, Topshop pleated maxi skirt and a fedora. That same day she sat front row at the Mulberry fashion show wearing a flippy miniskirt, scoop neck tee, tan blazer, caramel Mulberry leather jacket, gray lace-up heels, and an animal print Mulberry bag...whew! While in New York City a few days earlier, Olivia popped by the Rachel Roy fashion presentation just as covered up in a tailored coat, leather skirt, leopard print lace-ups, and a ton of fur. A TON.

Britney Spears in 'Hold It Against Me.'
All Photos: Courtesy of Jive Records

She's baaaaaack! Britney Spears' new Jonas Åkerlund-directed music video, "Hold it Against Me," premiered Thursday night (watch it below!). With a distinct sci-fi vibe, the clip opened with a meteor falling to earth from outer space. Then Brit is shown prepping for a photo shoot, which quickly turns into a wild and crazy dance party. Granted, Ms. Spears' moves were a little less boom-boom-pow than Britney's moves circa "Hit Me Baby One More Time." But, we won't hold it against her. Check out the video below, look by look...


Britney's looking awfully svelte in her fishnets and half-shirt. But the dancer with the purple undies and striped socks just might have the edge.


Upon closer inspection, the neon yellow layered necklace around Brit's neck is FIRE!


Oh, you might not want to mess with this crooner—check out her hip arsenal.


Here comes the bride...all dressed in white. The pop star is shown wearing a monstrous white ball gown, floating through a room full of video screens that displays her past videos. "Hit Me Baby One More Time"!!!


With the twinkling wedding gown (is it a wedding gown?), Britney rocks three cuffs on each arm, plus a serious statement necklace.


Brit-Brit's fingers shoot out paint!! Yeah, we'll get to that later. Side note: The singer's lashes look AMAZING!!


Kiss-kiss, claw-claw. Britney rocks faux talons with her red Yasmen Hussein for Swarovski Runway Rocks top. This still puts us in the mindset of Kanye West's "Runaway."


About mid-video, the singer physically beats up a glamorous clone of herself (both were wearing B. Akerlund). There's gotta be some meaning behind THAT.


If only we could all look so pretty (red lipped and every hair in place) while kicking butt!


Britney showed off these insane purple-y XTC stiletto heels during a fight scene.


No matter how old Britney gets, dancing is in her blood, and here she wore a B. Åkerlund design with Tom Binns jewelry while getting down.


Brit-Brit teamed her bustier top and booty shorts with bedazzled knee-high leather boots. Get it, girl!


Remember those paint guns attached to Brit's fingers? Well, this is what happens when you play with paint in a white dress. But personally, we like the wedding dress better now that it's covered in a rainbow of colors.

If there's one celeb that's DOING IT UP during New York Fashion Week, it's Vanessa Hudgens. On Feb. 16, the actress was spotted at Marchesa in a red ruffled shift, at Anna Sui in patterned bell-bottoms, at Jeremy Scott in a fitted black minidress, AND at Yigal Azrouël in a slate cocktail dress. Oh, but that's not all! On Feb. 14 and 15, the High School Musical alum was seated front row at Tibi in a glittery blazer, at Diesel in a maroon leather minidress, at Marc Jacobs in an oversize blush blazer, and at Alice + Olivia in black tights and a sleeveless tunic. Looks like there's no rest for the weary during Fashion Week. But kudos to Vanessa for making sleep deprivation look so good.

Rihanna at the Brit Awards in London on Feb. 15.

At the Brit Awards held in London on Feb. 15 we were all treated to a one-woman fashion show, courtesy of Rihanna. The pop singer, who picked up the award for Best International Female Artist, first walked the red carpet in a blue/purple/yellow Christian Dior Haute Couture ball gown. Then, for her performances of "Only Girl (In the World)," "S&M," and "What's My Name," RiRi slipped into three other ensembles—a black corset, a strapless rose-covered Oscar de la Renta gown, and a red minidress with floral details and a cape. We're perplexed, though—with all of those speedy costume changes, how in the world did she keep her strands in place?

+ Which outfit does Rihanna rock best?

Alexa Chung and Michelle Williams rocked the same gorgeous red lace Erdem dress recently. The Brit beauty wore the shift—which has three-quarter length sleeves and a pretty scoop neckline—on the cover of Net-A-Porter magazine this month, with minimal makeup and accessories. Meanwhile, Michelle Williams chose the dress for the London premiere of Blue Valentine, pairing it with printed pumps and an elegant black clutch. While both ladies looked lovely in the sophisticated shift, we think Alexa won this style matchup. We love how relaxed and effortless she looks with the soft makeup and messy hair (even if she had help from a wind machine). But what do you think?

+ Who wore Erdem Best—Alexa Chung or Michelle Williams?

Leading up to Sunday night's 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, there were all these rumors swirling around about Rihanna's health. Earlier in the week she apparently tweeted to a fan that she was getting over bronchitis and laryngitis. Well, if RiRi was still ill while walking the red carpet or performing, she played it off beautifully.

ON THE RED CARPET: Never one to shy away from making a fashion statement (or from showing slivers of skin), Rihanna combined her sleek red mane with a supersexy Jean-Paul Gaultier gown.

DURING HER PERFORMANCE WITH EMINEM: While onstage with rapper Eminem for their performance of "Love the Way You Lie," Rihanna wore a dramatic full-skirted, strapless Christian Dior ball gown.

DURING HER PERFORMANCE WITH DRAKE: Giving her performance of "What's My Name?" with rapper Drake an island spin, Rihanna slow whined in a fringed and beaded outfit and stiletto booties.

As has always been the case with Lady Gaga, we couldn't quite figure out what was going on here, but we still loved the bold, sci-fi-meets-fashion ensembles the singer chose for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. According to Gaga's creative director Laurieann Gibson, the singer was "birthing a new race." Alrighty then.

ON THE RED CARPET: Lady Gaga "incubated" on the red carpet in a womb-with-a-view created by Hussein Chalayan.

PERFORMING ON STAGE: While belting out her new single, "Born This Way," Gaga showed her dance moves (she's got a few!) in a Mugler by Nicola Formichetti-designed see-through yolk-colored half-shirt, skirt, jacket, and hat.

FOR HER ACCEPTANCE SPEECH: Winning a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, Lady Gaga took to the stage wearing a Mugler by Nicola Formichetti black getup with thigh-high boots and above-the-elbow gloves… Oh, and she rocked prosthetic baby horns and alien-esque pointy shoulders.

IN THE AUDIENCE: Sitting pretty (for an alien!), Lady Gaga donned a black one-shoulder jacket and thigh-high boots by Mugler by Nicola Formichetti, plus a face-covering circle hat by Franc Fernandez.

Even though singer Katy Perry had three outfit changes during Sunday night's 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, she stayed loyal to one designer. The Grammy-nominated singer sparkled in a trio of bedazzled Giorgio Armani creations.

ON THE RED CARPET: Katy stepped out in a custom-made Giorgio Armani evening dress featuring a Swarovski crystal encrusted bustier and an iridescent silk organza ruffled skirt. But, the feathery angel wings were what made this ensemble soar.

ONSTAGE: In an ode to Valentine's Day, Katy wore a custom-designed Giorgio Armani pink dress during her live performance. The minidress included a corset top embellished with pink shimmering rock crystals. She teamed her ensemble with a pair of custom-made Giorgio Armani platform shoes. We (heart)!

IN THE AUDIENCE: Finally, Katy closed the evening in a Giorgio Armani Privé iridescent silvery cocktail dress. She wore the embellished one-shoulder design with Valeska jewelry.

Katerina "Kat" Graham at the Essence 2nd Annual Black Women in Music event in Los Angeles on Feb. 9.

Many things could have caught our eye in the ensemble that Katerina "Kat" Graham wore yesterday to the Essence 2nd Annual Black Women in Music event, including her neon purple pumps, her now-signature pink pout and her wet-shine minidress. But they were all overshadowed by her INSANE statement necklace and ring. If they look heavy, it's probably because they are. The Charles Albert-designed necklace ($4999) and ring ($259) are both made from titanium and colorful quartz. But when jewelry looks that awesome, weight becomes a nonissue.

+ Do you like Kat Graham's big baubles?

Kim Kardashian in New York on Feb. 8, Emma Watson in New York on Nov. 16, 2010.

What is it about New York City that makes visiting celebs want to dress in hardware? Not that we're complaining—Cali girl Kim Kardashian and Emma Watson, who hails from England, both looked badass in the Big Apple as they stepped out in Burberry trenches with stud-covered sleeves. Kim rocked her large-studded trench yesterday with silver-toed Christian Louboutin pumps and bare legs. Back in November, Emma matched her mini-studded topper with a Burberry studded shoulder bag, lacy tights and black booties. We're calling this fashion face-off a draw—we like Emma's jacket, if only it was teamed with Kim's ensemble. Yeah, we have to make things complicated. But, what do you think?

+ Who looked better in their Burberry trench—Kim Kardashian or Emma Watson?

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