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.

It has become a widely accepted fact that Vinny Guadagnino is the reigning KING of graphic tees. I mean, after a brief break from Jersey Shore, his roommates brought him back WITH T-SHIRTS. It was only a matter of time before we were so moved by one page of his shirt game that we sent out the bloodhounds to track it down. This "Mr. Tea" shirt by Chunk is unequivocally it, and also (we've come to realize) very rare.
If you blinked, you might have missed it! The brief guest appearance Snooki's sunglasses line made on tonight's episode of Jersey Shore that is. For a brief moment, Snooks sported these oversized shades beneath a padded trucker hat en route to her shift at the Shore Store. While her efforts on this particular day at the T-shirt shop wouldn't necessarily be considered "hard-working" by most, we beg to differ. Sure, girl did the dip (TWICE) with co-meatball Deena and landed herself in the middle of a stranger's bachelorette party, but that's just one perspective. If real life were confined to the storyline of this show, we'd agree with you 110 percent, but this Snooki by Nicole Polizzi cameo means she's nailing her other job: growing and promoting her personal brand and fashion empire.

Faithful MTV family, our girl Lenay Dunn has scored another sweet gig! The totally adorable 10 On Top host has been nabbed up by American Rag for Macy's as its new "It" Girl!

Whitney Port's heading back to the small screen! The City star will join Elle Macpherson, Julien Macdonald, and Tyson Beckford on Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model for their seventh season. Shortly after her Whitney Eve NYFW runway debut next week, she'll be flying out to the U.K. for a few months to begin filming. The designer said, "I'm thrilled about this new opportunity in my career, and I am honored to have been asked to work alongside industry icons who I truly respect and admire. I've worked as a judge before, but I am especially looking forward to this particular role because it's based around the thing in life I'm passionate about; fashion."
