You guys remember Riff Raff. The Jody Highroller from From G's To Gents who, since his days on MTV, has since broken out his own music career. Also, James Franco's character in Spring Breakers is allegedly based on him. *dusts shoulders off* Riff Raff hit up the 2012 VMAs as a special guest correspondent for MTV Hive's Weird Vibes, but since he knows we feel his steez, he stopped by the MTV Style red carpet hot spot to give us the rundown on his spirited VMA look.
One of the great things about the VMAs is that, well, we can invite all of our favorite MTV friends to the big show! Whether it's the fierce and fashion-forward cast of Teen Wolf or the fit and tan roommates of Jersey Shore, we totally welcome everyone's individual style—let's peep who wore what on the red carpet tonight!

The cast of Teen Wolf is just dang cute, and while we adore them on the small screen, we are always pleasantly surprised to find out the cast is just dreamy in real life! Tyler Posey did the perfect mix of a dressed-up-dressed-down look with his gray Hugo Boss jacket and pants paired with a graphic tee and sneakers. Crystal Reed stepped out in a vivid red lace overlay number with sheer booties and a high bun, while Colton Haynes showed off his typically-stylish self in a fitted Hugo Boss suit, blue shirt and studded Christian Louboutin loafers. Last, but CERTAINLY not least, our MTV.com red carpet host Holland Roden looked absolutely stunning in her '60-inspired Pamella Roland get-up.

After all those memorable baby bump moments, it finally happened. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her fiancé, Jionni LaValle, welcomed their son Lorenzo Dominic LaValle into the world (specifically New Jersey) at 3 a.m. on August 26th. To commemorate the occasion, I consulted with Susan Miller the astrologist who knows absolutely everything to an eerie level, and according to her, the wee baby Virgo should focus on business relationships after the 15th and set some attainable personal goals some time in the first part of the month.

Pour a little Ron Ron Juice out, guys. When Jersey Shore premieres on Thursday, October 4, it will ceremoniously mark the beginning of the end. This upcoming sixth season will also be the show's last. From bump-it poofs to baby bumps, we've watched the cast of Snooki, The Situation, DJ Pauly D, JWOWW, Vinny, Sammi Sweetheart, Ronnie, Deena, and even Angelina evolve into style stars (of their very anthropologically specific style) over the past five seasons, and while we're so happy these guys are breaking the binding on a few new chapters of their lives, the end is bittersweet. In commemoration of the seasons past and celebration of their final act, click through for the extensive style evolutions of our favorite Seaside sweeties. Enjoy!

Our girl Kristin Cavallari has been the Web Ambassador for Chinese Laundry for almost a year now, but NOW, the ex-Hillsie is dipping her toes into the design side of the brand. According to the press release, KCav will be designing a capsule collection of "pumps, platforms, booties and flats" for the trendy footwear brand.

It's time that year again—Lauren Conrad models her latest LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl's, and we give you alllll the deets on it. For her fall 2012 line, the Hillsie doles out tons of flirty flocks, statement blazers, and colorful denim. Lucky for us, some of it already hit stores and is available to purchase right this second (!!!), but the rest of the line will continue to roll out through October. So, let's talk about those duds, shall we? Above, LC sports a totally school-appropriate red, sleeveless polka dot dress ($64) with some nude pumps and quite possibly the most amazing hair braid/headband thing we have ever SEEN. For a more nighttime-ready ensemble, LC shows off a fun black floral dress ($60) with matching heels. Perf!
It feels like just yesterday when Whitney Port made her NYFW runway debut! The City star showed off her fall 2012 Whitney Eve collection at the Lincoln Center, and we even caught up with her backstage to chat about her experience. Since then, Whitney has launched a jewelry line and, of course, has been continuing to work on her next spring 2013 Whitney Eve collection. Little did we know, Whitney was planning on making her NYFW show a WEE bit different than her previous ones by adding one extra (huge) element—YOU! She announced on her blog that she's creating the first-ever fan funded show for spring 2013. Now you're probably thinking, "Whaaa? She needs ME to help pay for her collection?" Well, technically, yes, but there are some pretttyyy cool perks that come along with it.
We don't know about you guys, but when we hear the name "Snooki," we immediately conjure up an image of the mini meatball decked out in head-to-toe leopard print with bronzed skin, long black waves, a serious smokey eye and, of course, frosted pink lips. We've discussed the lips-that-are-lighter-than-your-skin phenomenon (the verdict is still out on whether it's totally fierce or a total fail), and it looks like Snooks is bringing her much-talked about makeup trend to the masses. The former Jersey Shore star is releasing her first-ever lipstick with Ka'Oir Cosmetics called "Snookilicious." The baby pink (heh, good one momma-to-be!) lip color comes in a matte/satin finish inside a black tube with her signature scrawled across the front. The lipstick currently retails for $21.99, and is available for pre-order right this second. We have to admit, though, that we're actually sort of into this color because it has no hint of high-shine gloss or metallic glitter that makes a traditional frosted lip gloss so cringe-inducing. But, like, what's in frosted lipstick that gives it that high-shine glow? We needed to find out.
Um, have we mentioned how much we LOVE Lauren Conrad around these parts? Sure, she's part of the OG Laguna Beach crew, which is reason enough to obsess-not to mention, have it always queued up on MTV.com (it's okay, we don't judge). But besides reality TV fame, the girl is seriously multi-talented. She already has a hugely successful blog, a Kohl's clothing collection, a beauty book, and a brand new eco-friendly accessory line. While just writing all those projects makes us exhausted, LC is clearly ready for more, because the creative geniuses behind style site U Look Haute have announced a new video DIY series hosted by Lauren herself.

It's seems like FOR-EV-ER ago that we got wind of Lauren Conrad launching an eco-friendly cosmetic accessories collection with BlueAvocado, but the time has finally come—LC's new line has officially launched! Just this week The Hills star released a collection of sustainable and reusable products with BlueAvocado called XO(eco), which carries everything from cute food storage containers to on-the-go cosmetics bags and—get this—even a hot iron bag so you can pack your straightener in your luggage even if it's still piping hot. SMART.
