It's bedlam on the Rihanna 777 plane. So, if you don't know, me and Maud are on a seven country tour with Ri for the next week and of course THE first order of business is discussing this swag bag full of free stuff.

Maud scored a bottle of Rihanna's new mega fance parfum suitably called Nude (um, cello have you SEEN her GQ cover?). We sprayed it discreetly on the plane (we didn't want that ish to waft and have all of these journalists MURDER us) and agree that it smells like candy and powder with a musky undertone that adds some sexxxy nuance. I got Reb'l Fleur and we both got DRUMROLL PLEASE... Rihanna socks. They're amazing and we're going to wear them until they disintegrate.

Well, we're officially jealous of the West Coast. Yesterday, celebs, designers, and artists gathered together for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event at the Chateau Marmont in L.A. looking as if winter weren't just a month away (or mere days if you count the Frankenstorm coming our way. Yipes!). Jaime King, Katy Perry, Emma Roberts, and Mandy Moore all showed up sporting super summery graphic print frocks that are seriously making us miss those warm summer days. Jaime wore a crimson red paisley print peplum Giambattista Valli Resort 2013 dress with a brown Valentino clutch and matching shoes. She finished her look with a killer gold cuff, bold red lips and soft, blonde waves. PERF!

Kanye West, Leandra Medine, and Mia Moretti In Maison Martin Margiela for H&M.

The fact that the launch event for the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M collaboration last night was beyond A-list (A+ List?) comes as no surprise. Immortalized in lyrics of hip-hop songs by Jay-Z and Kanye, worn by the most discerning celebs, and always on the cutting edge, the fashion house was, until now, about as lux and rarefied as it could get. This is why, when rumors were swirling that Margiela would be joining forces with H&M on a collaboration, we held our breath in disbelief. It was true, though, and your opportunity to cop it for yourself is quickly approaching. The likes of Kanye West, The Man Repeller's Leandra Medine, DJ Mia Moretti and many more turned out in New York city for the launch, some even transforming into real-life models of the new collection. Sidebar: our own House of Style host Joan Smalls turned out for the event, right after her live Twitter interview with Karlie Kloss and the Wall Street Journal! Ok back on track—Kanye, Leandra, and Mia showed us how versatile and wearable the super directional collection can be, so we wanted to go through the look book and tell you which exact pieces the three were wearing!

Transitional dressing is hard for everyone, but for the red carpet? Not only are the stakes higher, the competition more fierce, and the flashbulbs FAR more plentiful, but there are also just so many options. Do you go dark, the way many New Yorkers purge their wardrobe of all color the minute the first leaf hits the pavement? Or do you go ultra bright, in chilly-day-warming jewel tones and little hints of the summer that has just passed? The Elle Women In Hollywood party was last night, and its red carpet had many awesome examples of both methods for mid-fall dressing. In the first camp, Emma Watson, Kiernan Shipka, and Anna Kendrick went darker (Kiernan playing with black and white), while Emma Stone, Kristen Wiig, and Nina Dobrev went ultra-bright.

Emma Watson looked chic but still relaxed, her signature blend of laid back and edgy, in a black structured cocktail dress with a nude accent and layered construction. Paired with a pair of strappy, geometric heels and centerparted, pulled-back hair, the look was still a little light for the colder months, but just right for right now. Kiernan Shipka proved that she's growing up so fast (but not too fast) in a sweet black and white dress featuring a demure little collar and peplum. Her blonde hair, stick straight and center parted, and black pointed toe shoes looked elegant and age-appropriate. Anna Kendrick went for the vampier, more fall black look, in an ornate bustier dress and platform heels, her hair cascading around her shoulders in light waves. All three women got the delicate balance of darkness and light just right, looking October appropriate, but not at all Halloweeny.

Joan Smalls, Sky Ferreira, and Karlie Kloss at Carine Roitfeld and MAC's Le Bal in Paris.

Oh what we would give to have been in Paris last night, even just a fly on the wall at Carine Roitfeld and MAC's Le Bal last night? MTV Style was in the house, with our House of Style hosts Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls looking INCREDIBLE (but is that really a surprise *hair toss*), though, so we can't say we totally missed out, but still. We wonder if there was a dress code in effect because the theme of the night was definitely all black everything. You can count on the high fashion set to take something simple and work it out, though, because this black was most certainly not even close to basic. Joan went sheer with her black, wearing a long, filmy gown with strategically placed embellishments, sleek, center parted hair, and the night's other necessary look: a super smokey eye. That last part should come as no surprise, as smudged kohl is one of Carine's signature looks, and this was her party, after all. Sky Ferreira took a different tack with her all black, wearing a super 90's short sleeved turtleneck (the trend continues!), A-line skirt in what is either velvet or sateen, a wide belt at her waist and her signature super bleached-out hair messy and parted deep on the side. Sky's beauty look was still based around a smudgy black eye, but unlike Joan, who paired hers with a nude lip, Sky went with a punch bowl pout, looking like she had moments before been eating a cherry popsicle. Karlie's look was something akin to a Parisian warrior, in a high-necked dress with a perfectly placed slit up and gorgeous geometric cut outs. Karlie kept her lips bare like Joan, but went for a side part, adding that Parisian, "oh this old thing?" flair that's so totally irresistible.

Lady Gaga bites Yoko Ono at her Fame launch at the Guggenheim museum.

We've already shown you the tattoo that Lady Gaga had inked onto her scalp at the Guggenheim museum last night, in celebration of Steven Klein's short film for her debut fragrance, Fame. Well, now we're ready to tell you the whole story, as far as we know it (and you know, you can never be sure with Mama Monster). She entered atop her car, as we said in our previous post, and snuck into the Gugg before most of the crowd had assembled, and well before her guests had arrived. We then took our place on the carpet to watch as the revelers poured in. It was a mix of high fashion faces, from Marc Jacobs to Interview editorial director Fabien Baron, to The Man Repeller herself, Leandra Medine, and pop notables like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. We were lucky enough to chat with a select few of the guests about what they were excited about and what Lady Gaga means to them, catching up with some of the celebs mentioned above (you'll have to watch to see who), as well as Yoko Ono, who compared Mama Monster to an angel, and figure skater and reality show star Johnny Weir, who is himself often referred to as "The Lady Gaga Of Figure Skating." Once inside, guests were treated to a screening of Steven Klein's short film, which he told us "explores the idea of the temptation of fame," and all of its many facets, as well as to Gaga's "Sleeping With Lady Gaga" performance piece. Check out our red carpet interviews, the full short film, and some photos from inside of the event after the jump.

Karlie Kloss at The Novak Djokovic Foundation Inaugural Dinner.

What with baking her signature cookies, prepping for her new House of Style gig, and ya know, absolutely killing it on the runway, Karlie Kloss undoubtedly has crammed enough activities into Fashion Week to make ANYONE exhausted. But while we're personally counting down the minutes til our much-needed post-NYFW nap, for Karlie it's a different story. Last night the supermodel added another activity into her packed agenda, lending her name to a seriously good cause. She attended a dinner for The Novak Djokovic Foundation, an organization established by tennis star Novak Djokovic that helps underprivileged children in his home country of Serbia. Karlie proved her special guest status for the eve in an intricately embellished v-neck gown from Carolina Herrera, simple black pumps, and black envelope clutch. With swept up hair and natural makeup (save for a swipe of liner), this is effortless perfection if we ever saw it. Who says fashion has to be dramatic?! She wasn't the only one working a sleek, relatively minimal look last night. Theophilus London proved you could look white-hot even AFTER Labor Day in crisp, clean separates.

High fashion and punk rock might seem like they're from opposite ends of the style universe (after all, just try and picture Anna Wintour with a mohawk...crazy, right?!). But hold on to your biker jacket-- because the two are about to collide in what's guaranteed to be an epic explosion of music and clothing. Ripped tops, safety pins, and black, black, and MORE black are prepping to invade New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art this spring with the new exhibit “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” The upcoming show is the latest of the Costume Institute's amazing eye-boggling exhibitions, hot on the heel's of this year's unforgettable "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations." But whereas 2012 was all about the overarching similarities between quirky designers Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, expect next year to be a liiiittle bit different. And by different, we mean LOUD. Kicking off with the origins of movement and punk's influence on fashion over the past 30 years, prepare for a whirlwind trip hitting hotspots like London, New York, and spotlighting all the cool kids in between.

Lady Gaga's meat dress from the 2010 VMAs is now available to see (not smell, fortunately) in a new exhibit.
Photo: Getty

First things first: we wouldn't recommend thinking too hard about some of the details of what we're about to talk about if you're planning on eating anytime soon. Ok, public service announcement over with...do you wanna see Lady Gaga's meat dress in the flesh (how could we resist)? We know that we've been curious as to what happened to the famous piece of sartorial charcuterie since Mama Monster wore it to the 2010 VMAs. Did it get thrown out? Frozen? Did someone eat it? Turns out the answer is none of the above--the dress and matching boots were preserved (turned into jerky, we think) and painted to maintain the original color and are now on display at Washington D.C.'s National Museum of Women in the Arts. Part of an exhibit called "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, and Power" from the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, is in Washington until January 6th, when it continues its tour through Omaha, Seattle, and Phoenix.

Nikki Reed Ariel Winter Sophia Bush

Hey, we know it's hard to dress your best in August—the humidity is at its peak of grossness and it feels like you've worn all your light, breezy dresses to death, but Nikki Reed, Ariel Winter and Sophia Bush proved that they can still look hot (heh) even in the most sweat-inducing weather. Last night at InStyle's Summer Soiree, all three ladies took a glam approach to the typical summer dress. In fact, they looked SO garden party chic, we could barely handle it! Twilight star Nikki Reed sported a demure floral Jill Stuart frock with T-strap heels and a burgundy clutch. She kept her hair and makeup minimal with just a touch of sheer pink gloss on her lips and no-nonsense beachy waves.
