On the heels of Whitney Port's Whitney Eve New York Fashion Week runway debut, it looks like The City star also will be launching a lower-priced clothing line. The collection, called WE by Whitney Eve, will be available exclusively in Apricot Lane stores across the U.S., according to People StyleWatch. For the spring launch, Whitney's line will include everything from breezy bow-tie blouses to paint-splattered printed pants, which is a more subdued version of her feminine menswear-inspired Aztec print pieces from the Whitney Eve collection. In her first look, Whit wears a silk navy peplum dress ($119) with nude pumps for an effortless night-out ensemble. In a more work-ready outfit, Whitney pairs a lace button-up white blouse ($93) with a crisp white blazer ($130) and a match-with-literally-anything black bubble skirt ($104). We totally can see ourselves sporting this last outfit all weekend long—Whitney wears printed black and neon skinny jeans with a loose bow blouse ($93) and AMAZING pointy black buckle boots. If you're feeling extra daring, try the all-black catsuit ($130) with a sheer overlay paired with sky-high platforms. (Sorry, windblown hair not included.)

Looks from Lauren Conrad's fall 2012 Paper Crown collection.

It's hard to believe our Hills girl Lauren Conrad debuted her Paper Crown collection over a year ago already. Oh, how time flies! We'll never forget the first time we spotted her soft and simple floor-grazing gowns and fun shift dresses, but we have to say, she's come a long way since then. LC released the full fall 2012 lookbook yesterday, and we're actually quite delighted with some of the fresh looks from the budding designer. In one of her ensembles, she plays with a fresh silhouette—she pairs a flouncy floral Wimbledon skirt with a rust-colored bow-cuff blouse. We're digging the brown ankle socks with suede platforms for more of a fall feel. Next up is a super short dotted flirty frock that is begging to be taken out for a bike ride. She paired it with opaque brown tights to make it more winter-ready, but that smize only comes from serious practice. For a dressier nighttime look, Lauren created the Kensington Gown, which features a lace corset bodice and a streamlined pale pink skirt. The bow at the waist adds a touch of whimsy, and suddenly we're wondering why we don't wear barrettes on a daily basis.
The Jersey Shore girls set up their tent.
On this week's episode of Jersey Shore, the roommates all go CAMPING! Well, all but Vinny and Pauly who opts out, claiming to be against the whole "no mirror, no bathroom, can't do my blowout" aspect of camping. Perhaps the rest of the roommates were just less aware of how stripped an experience camping can be, but they braved the wilderness and their extraction from the world of styling irons and GTL nonetheless. So how exactly do the Seaside Heights mainstays ready themselves for a *achem* low maintenance night under the stars?
A baby outfit if Snooki has a girl!
Guys, Snooki is expecting! The big news dropped today, and the mommy-to-be also revealed that she's engaged to boyfriend Jionni LaValle. (Ah ha! That WAS an engagement ring we spotted the other day.) Call us crazy, but we're kiiiind of excited to see how Snooki styles her little meatball. It's still up in the air whether it's a boy or girl, but don't worry—we're covering all our bases. We've put together some Snooki-fied baby outfits for her newborn that we think she'll totally dig. First up, a baby girl ensemble! Our Jersey Shore lady is ALL about accessories and animal print, so we went with a giant pink zebra bow paired with a sparkly fuchsia zebra swimsuit (so beach ready, amirite?), pink cheetah print sunglasses, a black tutu, and animal print flip-flops. We think this girly punk rocker meets beach babe ensemble has every part of Snooki's style rolled up into one tiny little package. Awww!
Snooki in Jersey City on March 5.

We spotted our girl Snooki out and about in Jersey City today, but she looked a wee bit different than usual, and then—GASP—we noticed a giant sparkler on her left ring finger that we've never seen before. Um, haiiii, is that an engagement ring? Also, deets, please! The Jersey Shore girl usually shares every last detail of her life via Twitter, but she's been totally silent about this huge rock. What gives? So many rumors! Either way, if this actually is the ring for the bride-to-be, her boyfriend Jionni LaValle did a seriously good job picking out the stone. From what we can tell, it looks like a square cut platinum diamond ring with smaller diamonds down the sides of the band. So, Snooks, if you're listening, can you take a cue from Wiz and Amber and Instagram a pic of that bad boy so we can appropriately gawk at it/congratulate you. Thanks, girl.

It's that time again, friends! Our fave Hillsie Lauren Conrad is releasing another LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl's filled with all the tried-and-true staples she's been bringing us for the past few seasons. Her line features tons of flirty, floral party dresses, colorful skinny jeans, breezy blouses, and—our favorite—the classic motorcycle jacket. The transitional pieces will be released over the next few months, but we have a sneak peek at all the goods right now! Here, LC sports a pleated periwinkle floral dress with a ribbon detail at the waist ($64) and a pink-on-pink colorblocked, three-quarter sleeve dress with a matching skinny belt ($68). Check out even more looks after the jump!
Snooki in Jersey City on Feb. 28.

It seems like Snooki and JWOWW are making themselves right at home! The Jersey Shore besties are busy filming their spinoff show in Jersey City and decided they needed to spruce up the place with some new furniture. The day after JWOWW's birthday, Snooki was greeted (in her leopard and flannel PJs!) with a special at-home delivery—a totally decked-out zebra couch and *drum roll* a matching chair in the shape of a platform shoe. WUT. We need to discuss.
In a strange interwebs coincidence, both Snooki and Willow Smith decided to show off their cerebral side yesterday by tweeting pics of themselves in large, "nerdy" glasses. (Their words, not ours!) Snooki posted a photo of herself with the word "Nerdz*" below it. In the pic, she wore oversized gold and tortoiseshell aviator frames with (what looks like) no lenses. She paired it with a leopard headwrap, pink tee, and frosted pink lipstick. Snooki totally channeled an '80s rocker look with these accessories, and we think it's FAR from dorky.
Snooki (as Lola) hits the club.
It's pretty much expected for the Jersey Shore cast members to be at the forefront of club fashion. I mean, they're professional boardwalk party hoppers at this point (with a little Shore Store during daylight hours), so they're able to spot fresh emerging trends before most anyone else. THIS little *pointer finger circle motion* ensemble, though, might be a little avant-garde for us. At least for right now. Yes, ladies and gents, that is the one and only Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi clad in a full-on fuzzy bunny suit at Karma.
A look from the Whitney Eve fall 2012 collection and designer Whitney Port on Feb. 15, 2012, in New York City.

Whitney Eve's first solo New York Fashion Week runway show (prior events have been presentations and joints shows in Miami or in L.A.) for Fall/Winter 2012 was admirable for its restraint. Inspired by an antique kaleidoscope found in her grandmother's house, Whitney Port unveiled tailored angles and jewel tones and at no point threatened to allow her collection to fragment into scattered, disparate stories. Set to the backdrop of Beyoncé's "Run The World? (Girls)," M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls," Robyn's "Fembot," and The Big Pink's "Dominos," there were sequins, dainty peplum blouses, pretty bubble prints, fluttery blouses, cocktail dresses with geometric beading, and a cannily cut and breezy-to-wear suit.
We caught up with the flaxen-haired designer to talk about the iridescent nails (blue!), her inspiration, and some of her favorite pieces.
