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.

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.

7:38 pm — Cutie patootie Willow Smith walked the red carpet wearing a cropped jacket, brown caped skinny pants, platform sneakers, and a floating clutch. And, of course, her hair was braided into a whip-ready style.

This weekend we saw a slew of braids on New York Fashion Week runways. But not just any old Little House on the Prairie braids. These were braids with a serious twist! At Charlotte Ronson, models' hair was slicked to one side with a few tiny plaits peeking out from underneath. Meanwhile, the models at Erin Fetherston and Band of Outsiders wore chunky braids--Erin Fetherston's were wrapped crown-style around their heads, and Band of Outsiders were pulled to one shoulder.

New York Fall 2011 Fashion Week is in full swing (yay!), and we're hitting the tents and following the live streams to bring you chic runway looks, hot hair trends, and easy-breezy front row looks.

FASHION SHOW: JASON WU

• Menswear goes girly at Jason Wu's Fall 2011 fashion show with fitted trousers, lacy sweaters, and bow-tied tops.

• We can totally see First Lady Michelle Obama, who is already a fan of the designer, rocking the third outfit (polka dot blouse and gray pencil skirt) in this runway line.

• P.S. We've seen a handful of slicked-down ponytails for Fall 2011. Take note.

RUNWAY BEAUTY: REBECCA TAYLOR

• Hope you still have your hair crimper from middle school, because you might need it this fall! At Rebecca Taylor's fashion show models smoothed down the top portion of their hair, and crimped the bottom half.

• Ohhhh, pretty! Red lips and gilded shadow is a match made in makeup heaven.

• Below the neck, Rebecca Taylor's fall collection was full of '70s Parisian-style tunics, dresses, and trousers.

FRONT ROW CELEB: MICHELLE TRACHTENBERG AT REBECCA MINKOFF

• At the Rebecca Minkoff show actress (and March 2011 Maxim cover model) Michelle Trachtenberg looked unfussy-eclectic in a simple crewneck sweater, over-the-knee boots and a long statement necklace.

Designer/Project Runway alum Christian Siriano, 25, is obviously a feet man. Sure, the black, muted mauve and mossy green gowns he showed yesterday during his Fall 2011 runway show at New York Fashion Week were delish, but it was his INSANE shoes—studded, snake-skinned, fuzzy, embellished platforms—we couldn't take our eyes off of. And we hear that these same platforms will act as Siriano's inspiration for his next Payless line (we loved his last one). Take a number, ladies. Take a number!

Celebs, including Gabrielle Union, Mena Suvari, and Alexa Chung, sat front row to get a closer look at Christian's fancy footwear. But take a look at their own towering heels. GOODNESS!

New York Fall 2011 Fashion Week is in full swing (yay!), and we're hitting the tents and following the live streams to bring you the hottest trends, neat backstage beauty finds and the best-dressed front-rowers.

FASHION SHOW: MARA HOFFMAN

• Hippy-dippy accessories (turbans, John Lennon shades, etc.) gave Mara Hoffman's fall collection a serious bohemian vibe.

• Our personal fave is this slouchy, wrap sweater dress. Cute, right?

• Hard to see, but worth mentioning: to go along with the dark color palette, the models fingertips were dipped in black dye. Weird, but cool.

• Check out caftans, knits, and other cool looks from the collection here.

BACKSTAGE BEAUTY: EYE GLITTER AT VENA CAVA

• The mantra, "a little goes a long way," did not apply at Vena Cava's fall runway show, where makeup artists covered models' lids and bottom lash lines with LOADS of multi-colored glitter.

• Sparkly makeup can quickly and easily go all wrong (hence, the models steady tilted head and hair clips). But Vena Cava teamed the princess-grunge makeup look with leather toppers, suede jackets, and platforms, making it SO right.

FRONT ROW CELEB: BRYANBOY AT RACHEL COMEY

• Fashion blogger Bryanboy arrived at the Rachel Comey fashion show in black leggings, a fuzzy-collared fur coat (tons of attendees have been rocking fur, by the way), a gray striped tee, and 3-D-style sunglasses. But the crowning jewel of his ensemble was his curly fro wig.

Following in the footsteps of Pamela Anderson and Ellen DeGeneres, Jersey Shore's Jenni "JWOWW" Farley had the honor of helping designer Richie Rich close out his New York Fall 2011 Fashion Week show last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. And, OF COURSE, she did it barely clothed. The Seaside castie hammed it up down the runway in a slinky, thong-baring sparkly sheath (right up her alley), Lady Gaga-like heel-less pumps, and a chunky anklet. And Richie? Well, he was Richie.

FASHION SHOW: STEVEN ALAN

• Designer Steven Alan made us want to be nerds (because, you know, we're not) with his fall collection of tweed blazers, scholarly topcoats and striped rompers.

• Whoever styled this show = layering genius.

• Check out the detailing on Alan's pieces—the side buttons on the romper, the fading on the striped leggings. We like. We like.

BEAUTY MOMENT: ALMOST-BLACK NAIL POLISH ON MODELS AT NICHOLAS K

• Just when we thought dark lacquer was outta here...

Pattie Yankee (a celeb manicurist for Dashing Diva with a cool name) created two custom colors for Nicholas K, a deep hunter green and brown with gold flecks polishes.

• P.S. The flatform boots that this model is wearing are killer!

FRONT ROW CELEB: KATRINA BOWDEN IN THE FRONT ROW AT BCBG MAX AZRIA

30 Rock's Katrina Bowden looked too cute at the BCBG Max Azria show, wearing a high-waist miniskirt, puff-sleeved top and black booties. And the pop of candy apple red on her nails is perfection.

• Is the girl sitting beside Katrina with the pretty pink lipstick Tika Sumpter (the actress who plays Raina Thorpe on Gossip Girl)?

Cee Lo Green flashed some feminine flair at the Woman's Day 8th Annual Red Dress Awards on Tuesday night in New York City. The rapper showed up for the celebration in big black rose stud earrings! It wasn't the bling we were used to seeing on Cee Lo, but we loved the unexpected touch. If you're dying to try the look yourself (girls and guys, OBVIOUSLY!), check out the baubles below, including our faves: Flower Stud Earrings from The Limited, which are also black, but come with a sparkly center for some extra pizzazz; and Betsey Johnson's collection of petal pushers.
