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.

• 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.

• 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!

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)?

Nicky Hilton, Heidi Klum, and Louise Roe celebrate Lucky's March 2011 issue on Feb. 3, 2011.

We're only halfway through winter, but spring was in the air last Thursday as celebrities descended upon the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood for Lucky's March 2011 launch party. A handful of fashionable femmes pulled out their prettiest above-the-knee prints for the affair, including March cover girl Heidi Klum, who rocked a fuchsia Rachel Roy shift with strappy Jimmy Choo sandals. Meanwhile, Nicky Hilton opted for a one-shoulder blue number with a thick black waistband, which she wore with black pumps. Fashion journalist Louise Roe went for a tribal look in a flowy green dress and chained headpiece.

Pair of Kings star Kelsey Chow's blue frock had a big circular pattern, which balanced the shorter shift nicely, while Community's Gillian Jacob looked glam in a strapless navy, silver and yellow dress. Actress Izabella Miko looked all-out girly in a coral, three-quarter-sleeve dress, which she paired with a thick white belt. If you weren't itching for warmer temps by now, this spring fashion sneak peek probably did the job.

Taylor Momsen at the Tokidoki x Onitsuka Tiger launch in West Hollywood on Oct. 26, and a model at the Nina Ricci Spring Summer 2011 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week.

It felt a little like déjà vu when we read this recent Lucky magazine post about red smoky eye shadow, which was dusted on models' lids at Nina Ricci’s spring runway show, being the hottest thing since sliced bread. We’ve seen those ruby-rimmed peepers before (and we even wrote about 'em)! Taylor Momsen went red while hosting the Tokidoki X Onitsuka Tiger Sneaker collaboration launch party on Oct. 26. Remember, this look is pegged as a Spring 2011 makeup must-try, so Taylor was 145 days ahead of the trend (in case you’re keeping count). We may never get down with the red eye—it looks...itchy—but kudos to Ms. Momsen for being on top of her makeup game.

Kelly Osbourne at the Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 16, the Art Of Elysium "Heaven" Gala on Jan. 15, at the American Music Awards on Nov. 21.

E! Fashion Police cohost Kelly Osbourne is the new face of Madonna’s and her daughter Lourdes' Material Girl clothing line, replacing Gossip Girl/The Pretty Reckless frontwoman Taylor Momsen. Do you see the style resemblance? Yeah, we don't either. Sure, they both love fashion, but what they call cool is completely different. Just check out the glaring differences between the celebs' most recent ensembles. Kelly's look is feminine chic with a dose of Old Hollywood glamour thrown in for good measure. Meanwhile, Taylor gravitates toward fishnets and kohl eyeliner, for a personal style that screams rock star grunge/trashy chic/"And...WHAT?!". Our guess is that Madonna and Lourdes wanted more yin and less yang going forward with their fashion line. But, don't cry for Ms. Momsen—she's still got John Galliano.

See the male runway models in the photos above, including the two face-covered specimens and the one Zombie Boy (yep, the tats are real)? Those guys were a few of the fellas picked to walk the runway for French fashion house Thierry Mugler's premiere men's ready-to-wear fall/winter collection, which was shown during Paris Fashion Week on Jan. 19. So, Mugler had his provocative ensembles and the hot boys to wear them, but what about a subversive club jam to tie it all together? That's where Lady Gaga came in. The pop star was asked by the brand's creative director Nicola Formichetti, who also styled Gaga's "Alejandro" video, to serve as musical director at Mugler's menswear show. Lady G was game (of course), and now we can't help but think that we'll be hearing a lot more Gaga-created tunes on future runways. But, you be the judge.

Camilla Belle attends a dinner and walks the runway during the Alberta Ferretti fashion show on Jan. 11.

Actress-turned-model Camilla Belle looked true to form while walking Alberta Ferretti's runway show during Pitti Immagine Uomo 79 (it's kind of like the opening event for the European and International Fashion Fair season) in Florence, Italy, yesterday. Is it just us, or did the From Prada to Nada star look slightly nervous while strutting the catwalk in a Ferretti ethereal dusty purple gown? After her designer runway debut, the perfectly browed beauty flipped the switch back to actress mode, changing into a short textured frock from Ferretti's Fall 2010 line, which she teamed with strappy sandals, a pale blue bangle and a chunky ring for a special after party and dinner.

+ Which do you prefer—actress Camilla or model Camilla?

Gossip Girl Jessica Szohr was spotted at C&C Studios in New York City yesterday wearing the cutest little striped dress with magenta peep toes. But the dress wasn't the main attraction. The actress was there to launch SoBe Lifewater and unveil the promotional campaign she stars in for the beverage company. The ad shows a svelte Jessica posing near a fire hydrant in her birthday suit (with strategically placed paint made to look like lizard skin). Shocking marketing? Not really. This isn't the first time SoBe asked a celeb to model in the buff (excuse us, in a "skinsuit")—Twilight's Ashley Greene was the company's spokesperson last year.

A handful of actresses, including Gossip Girl Leighton Meester , who recently became the pretty face for Vera Wang fragrance and fashion house Missoni, are crossing over into the world of catwalks and ad campaigns. A-lister Camilla Belle was tapped by Alberta Ferretti to model in the designer's Florence runway fashion show on Jan. 11. And just this week, 16-year-old Dakota Fanning, who stars in Twilight: Eclipse, recently signed with IMG Models. You better work! (No, really...Leighton, Camilla, and Dakota's work schedules just got A LOT more hectic.)

+ Which actress do you think will make the best model — Leighton, Camilla or Dakota?

If you're not careful, wearing black in the winter can completely drag down your look. Seriously, when did a little snow flurry and the occasional ice storm equate to having to dress like we're going to a funeral? As witnessed at the launch of the Devon flagship store in Beverly Hills on Dec. 8, black-based ensembles can be sexy, trendy, and superfun. Just check out how Jessica Stam, Nicky Hilton, Whitney Port, and Rashida Jones rocked dark and lovely looks...and take notes.


Jessica Stam

Instead of donning a basic black minidress (which would have been OK), model Jessica Stam, who helped host the Devon store launch, wore one covered in sparkly embellishments.


Nicky Hilton

Another way to make an LBD more interesting is to choose one in an interesting fabric like socialite Nicky Hilton did. Granted, this Devon leather dress cost a whopping $2,250, but you get our point—play with fabrics!


Whitney Port

Whitney Port brightens her black blazer, military green tights and black booties by slipping into a summery white slip dress. Genius!


Rashida Jones

Actress Rashida Jones looks so laid-back and cool in a Devon printed chiffon top, which she paired with a jean jacket, high-waisted/high-water pants, and a smattering of skinny jewelry.

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