Along with that epic, never ending Lauren/Stephen love triangle, here's one thing we'll always remember from Laguna Beach: Kristin Cavallari's killer choker game (click here for a refresher). And while we may not have realized it then, the '90s accessory staple has TOTALLY come back— so who knows, maybe she was officially onto something all those years ago. Kristin knew what was happening then, and now she's putting that jewelry sixth sense to good use for the masses with- wait for it- a brand new jewelry line! The reality star-turned-new mom has joined forces with GLAMboutique.com on a collection of rings, bangles and necklaces...all priced at a surprisingly affordable $7-$100. Not too shabby, right?! Oh, and her business partner Pascal Mouawad is also the man behind Nicole Richie's super sucessful House of Harlow label, so clearly the guy knows what he's talking about (including what we'll be dying to add to our jewelry stash come 2013).
Snooki at her fragrance launch on Nov. 13.
Guys, Snooki is really, really close to fashion world domination. Like, we thought her accessories, flip-flops, handbags, and sunglasses lines were enough to prove that she was a TOTAL #bosslady, but as it turns out, that was just the beginning of her style endeavors. Last week, she launched her second fragrance and first-ever nail polish collection, and this week we were lucky enough to chat with her about it! (And try all the products out firsthand, obvi.) It turns out she not only launched a 3-piece glitter nail collection like we thought, but also tons of other "Snookified" polishes, including a shimmery green color called "Money Maker" and a magenta hue called "Smush That." She also surprised us with super-cute press-on nails (complete with bows!), animal print nail decals and even a scented top coat. We chatted about all-things beauty, including her freshly-dyed fiery red hair, obsession for nail art, and—GASP—future clothing line. Peep ALL the deets after the jump, and, just so you know, we're totally in love with her now. Baiii.
We knew Snooki was up to something. Yesterday, the Jersey Shore girl posted pics of her hair getting bleached (!!!) and said, "Guess what color I'm going!!!" Spoiler alert: It's not blonde. She ended up debuting a fiery red 'do that totally gives us Poison Ivy vibes, and we're ob-sessed with it. It's got hints of black, candy apple red, and almost a magenta hue, which complements her skin tone oh-so-perfectly. Way to go, mama! Snooki has been sporting her super shiny, naturally dark brown strands as of late, but it looks like she wanted a serious change, and, well, she got it!

Jessica Simpson, watch your back: Snooki is officially becoming THE next big fashion and beauty entrepreneur, and there's no stopping her. Just a couple weeks ago the Jersey Shore girl launched her own accessories line, and it appears that was just the beginning of her fashion world domination. Last night she debuted her second fragrance, Snooki Couture, and her first ever nail polish collection, called All That Glitters, on HSN. This is in addition to her thriving sunglasses, sandals, handbags, and slippers collections mind you, which already have a super-strong fan base. #WERK

Friends, you might want to remember this day because it's certainly going down in MTV Style history. As of this very moment, Snooki will have officially dominated every corner of the accessories market, and there's no turning back. The Jersey Shore girl has already created multiple (successful) accessories collections including sunglasses, sandals, handbags, and slippers, but there was still one giant area left untouched: jewelry and hair accessories. And guess what? Snooki will be creating JUST that! Online retailer Style Queen announced that they'll be carrying Snooki's debut jewelry and hair accessories collection, called Snooki Couture By Nicole Polizzi, starting November 12.

If there's one thing we know about Lauren Conrad, it's that she's got her beauty game on LOCK. Whether she's switching up her strands with hot pink tips or teaching us how to do a step-by-step half moon mani, LC is always sharing the best beauty advice with her fellow ladies. I mean, it's no wonder she's releasing a book about, well, exactly that (appropriately titled Lauren Conrad BEAUTY) and was hand picked as Allure's gorgeous November cover girl. Presh! For her cover look, she ditched her typical wing-tipped liner for bare lids, luscious lashes, and a fire engine red matte lip. She wore her hair down and straight, which gives off a soft and beautiful beachy vibe that's totally reminiscent of her Laguna Beach days. She finished her look with a navy 3.1 Phillip Lim bikini top and matching cotton silk Dior toile skirt. (No one remind us that winter is just a couple months away, please. Kthxbi.)

Lauren Conrad is at it again! The former Hills star released yet another LC Lauren Conrad Kohl's collection (for holiday!), but this time she got to pick out her top looks. Pretty cool, eh? (We've got connections, NBD. *brushes shoulders off*) Her top 5 outfits include everything from sparkly NYE-ready frocks to cozy graphic sweaters, and, man, suddenly we're getting WAY too excited for winter to roll around. LC's first fave look features a gold sparkle dress ($64) with a bow belt that cinches in the waist. She finished the ensemble with some killer pewter pumps ($60) that could match, um, basically everything in our wardrobe. Up next is party-ready LBD with a 'dorbs bow in the back and a hint of lace ($64). She finished this look with a sky-high pony AND sky-high pumps ($60), which we love. CA-UTE.
JWoww, Sammi and Deena chat with MTV News.
It's been a long road for the ladies of Jersey Shore. From breakups, to fights, to more recent babies and engagements, we feel like we've been through everything with JWoww, Sammi Sweetheart, Deena, and Snooki. The fact that this is their last season in Seaside Heights feels bittersweet, because we can hardly imagine not being able to see all of what their lives have in store for them (which yeah, is probably pretty unhealthy) but at the same time, we're really excited to see what else they have up their sleeves. A lot has changed, we think, but in the end, they're all the same people we first met way back in season 1 (just check out our photo galleries of their style evolutions). We went to Sammi's first New York Fashion Week show this year, and in this exclusive video shot by our friends at MTV News, she reveals that she will be showing again this February. But is she the only one of the ladies in the shore house who we'll be seeing at Fashion Weeks to come? Watch the video to find out that and to hear what the girls think of their own style evolution, after the jump!

We can't BELIEVE it's already been a year since Snooki debuted her first-ever sunglasses collection, and today the Jersey Shore girl continues her quest for total eyewear world domination (see: those spring shades that sold out in less than 24 hours) by releasing yet another set of affordable sunnies. Last night she tweeted, "Snooks shades" with an Instagram picture (above) showin' off her latest eyewear, and we have to admit that we were a little surprised by her specs! These super-dark aviators are definitely a deviation from her bold animal print or bright rhinestone-studded Snooki by Nicole Polizzi pieces, but perhaps she went a little more vampy thanks to a little holiday called "Halloween" coming up.
We don't know what her secret is, but there's no denying it: motherhood looks GREAT on Snooki. Mere months after giving birth to her son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has undergone a total beauty transformation. A makeunder, if you will... and we've got photo evidence to prove it! She ditched the spray tans, the bronzer and the Barbie pink "Snookilicious" lipstick for an au natural beauty look that's stripped down, effortless, and just plain pretty. She tweeted the barefaced pic above out yesterday, saying "Legit loungin in pjs & no makeup. I feel good." You know the old saying "feeling good is looking good?" It might be cheesy, but in Snooki's case it's never rung truer.
