Last week, we spotted iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove at the "Teachers Rock" Benefit in L.A. wearing, appropriately enough, an outfit that actually made us WISH we could go back to school. Yep, it was just that cute. With a rivet-encrusted collar and navy plaid motif, Miranda's Juicy Couture checkered top somehow managed to hopscotch the line between collegiate and trendy. With a tailored cut and tartan pattern, it's totally dresscode-friendly. But at the same time, the pointy collar, eye-grabbing embellishments, and back zipper make it the sleeveless blouse an after-class staple, too. Turns out we're not the only ones in love- Carly Rae Jepsen AND Iggy Azalea have also turned out in the top this week. And the cool part is, all three girls rock it in totally different ways.
Is this Chanel neckpiece a necklace or a collar? Either way, Emma Stone looks awesome.

Is there any magazine Emma Stone hasn't been in this summer? From sharing shoots with her on and off-screen love Andrew Garfield to covers shot solo (on Vogue, no less), the actress, who is without a doubt one of our all time faves on screen, is also one of our favorites on the page. In her latest spread, for Interview, Emma takes a break from rocking spotless couture and cute fall basics to get a little futuristic on us. Sporting a stunning Chanel necklace (when does a necklace become a collar, we wonder), and lit in moody magentas, Stone looks every bit a warrior, and there's hardly a hint of her usual style. Not that we didn't already think Emma was a badass, but we never imagined her glaring at us with a smokey eye and a look for which 'smoldering' is an understatement. Paired with a slick blonde pompadour and a gaggle of hot dudes in sunglasses, this is a future we'd be more than happy to live in.

LA-based DJ-to-the-stars Lindsay Luv is a CA-UTIE, and I’m not just talking about her adorbs DJ name. I’m talking about drooling over her penchant for a good smokey eye, blood-red lips, and major '90s towering platforms. And not just any platforms, you guys—she OWNS a pair of Scary Spice’s signed platforms (above). (When I found out she’s BFFs with Mel B, I ugly cried a little and seriously stanned out a.k.a. collapsed, got on my knees begging whilst throwing wads of cash at Luv before revealing my deep dark secret [see: my 11-year-old “job” as the founder of the Spice Gazette circa ‘97 AOL A/S/L chatroom days, which folded after experiencing post-Ginger Spice depression and discovering Britney Spears.] *sigh*) Well, Luv unfortunately wouldn’t budge on those leopard-patterned beauties, so I settled for interviewing her for Favorite Things. Spoiler alert: You’re gonna luv it (heh), particularly those Chanel gold mesh fingerless gloves and her Lady Gaga signed album LP. #killmenow Time to spice up your closets, y’all.

Not that we REALLY needed an excuse to hit up Fashion's Night Out or anything (after all, we were pretty much sold after Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber's adorable PSA). But helllooo! Now that we've heard Azealia Banks will debut her very own MAC lipstick in the New York MAC store that same evening, we're SO there. Yep, you read that right! The hip hop star has teamed up with the cosmetics company on a brand new hue, appropriately titled 'Yung Rapunxel.' It's a totally gorgeous shade of deep, dark purple, much like the one she sported on the cover of VIBE earlier this month. So obviously, we HAVE to have it.
HAIM for 'ASOS'.

New band alert! If you haven't checked out Los Angeles sister trio Haim yet, drop everything and do it NOW... yes, we're totally serious (your ears will thank us later). OK, now that we've gotten that part out of the way, here's the breakdown: although they've been performing as a family for pretty much forever, Danielle, Alana and Este Haim officially burst upon the music scene earlier this year, totally killing it at festivals like SXSW with their amazing '90s-inspired sound. They might take cues from groups like Destiny's Child and TLC in R&B-inflected girl power anthems like "Forever," but these emerging stars are totally unique in their music AND their style. All three sisters have an entirely different fashion vibe, from Este's minidresses to Danielle's tomboyish separates to Alana's band tees and cutoffs. They showed it off in this month's ASOS Magazine, and we've got your backstage pass! Get a first look of the shoot after the jump.

It's official: the world can't get enough of Lana Del Rey. And for good reason, considering the sultry New York singer's working the total package- her signature smoky voice, retro good looks, and seriously covetable street style (winged eyeliner and sky-high bouffant included). She's already rocked the fashion circles with a namesake Mulberry bag, more magazine covers than we can keep up with, and a brand-new H&M campaign. Now she's fronting another brand, but it's definitely NOT what you'd expect. Just this morning it was announced that the musician is the newest face of Jaguar- yep, the car company.

We already know that Drew Barrymore has major film skills that go WAY beyond acting in front of the camera (just watch her awesome directing debut Whip It if you need a refresher). And now, after working with Hollywood up-and-comers like Chloe Moretz in Best Coast's "Our Deal" video and shooting Victoria Justice for V Magazine, the Golden Globe-winning actress is turning the lens on yet another ingenue. Shailene Woodley is Drew's latest muse, channeling '70s film icons in a sultry new Vs. Magazine spread.
Nanette Lepore's debut style of sunglasses.

We love Emma Roberts. We love Nanette Lepore. So what happens when two of our favorite people combine? Just take a look at the sketch of these amazing sunglasses above, and you'll see that it's a total match made in creative heaven (seriously, Cupid would be jealous he didn't think of it first!). Yep, Nanette Lepore- known and beloved for flirty, girly dresses- has just crafted her first style of sunglasses inspired by none other than Emma herself. The pair of cat-eye frames is the latest addition to the VOGUE Eyewear Designer Series, and is inspired by retro Twenties glamour with a modern twist. As Nanette tells WWD of her 21-year-old actress muse, “She’s chic, youthful and confident in her style." Considering Emma's ability to switch from rocker to Old Hollywood to uber-trendy at the drop of a hat, who's going to argue with that?
Emma Watson brings a youthful freshness to classic British style.
Remember when Emma Watson cut her hair? Just in case you've forgotten: in 2010, the actress chopped off her long locks into a sleek, mod pixie, marking the end of the Harry Potter era. Two years have passed, now, and we're gearing up to watch Ms. Watson in a starring role in The Perks of Being A Wallflower, which comes out exactly one month from tomorrow, and we're so excited (can you tell?)! The actress is the T Magazine, The New York Times' Style Magazine's, Fall 2012 cover girl, in a spread that plays off of her English roots in tweeds, suits, and hunting caps, while also showing off the nuanced edge that Watson has made a name for herself for. Wearing an Armani jacket, Burberry Prorsum hat, Isabel Marant Sweater and Harry Winston earrings, Watson looks perfectly prepared for a day out on the moors, although her black, double winged eyeliner adds a high fashion tension to the otherwise classically androgynous look. The overall beauty look for the shoot is clean and bright, although completely appropriate for fall. Watson's fresh, clear skin is flawless, and her light freckles are allowed to come through. The heavy, timeless cat eye is used in all of the shots, sometimes with two wings, other times in its 1960's incarnation as in the magazine's cover image, which you can see after the jump.
Lana strikes a somber pose in killer velvet heels.

Last month, we confirmed that Lana Del Rey was indeed going to be the new face of H&M, and now the brand has made the full campaign--or the images at least--available for all of us to feast our eyes upon. The holiday campaign shows a sumptuously styled Lana posing against a stark grey background with rich maroons, velvet, and cream accents making her look like a cozy beacon in a chilly storm. Isn't that exactly what fall fashion should be: a relief from the encroaching cold? We love it. Now, where's our e-commerce at, H&M? Just asking. We also got a little bit more info on the long-form video portion of the ad, which features Lana singing "Blue Velvet." The piece, which will be available in its full-length form on H&M's website on September 19th, will also be edited to be used in television commercials.
