When the news broke that The Situation would be endorsing a line of tuxedos for FLOW Formal Wear earlier this summer, we knew it would be just a matter of time before we FINALLY saw the Jersey Shore star sporting a tux. (We've never seen him in one before! I mean, with those abs why bother even wearing a shirt, right?!) Well friends, that time has come. FLOW Formal is slowlyyyyy rolling out photos of Mike modeling the new line (appropriately) called "The Situation," which features two solid tuxes in black and white and a gray vest. The Situation shows that a tuxedo can be worn in a variety of ways by pairing just the jacket with a V-neck tee and jeans or by going all out in a three-piece ensemble complete with a matching paisley tie (and lady friend). So, what does The Situation think about repping a tux line? He told In Touch, "They approached me because I'm a trendsetter. DTF has a new meaning: Down to Formal! I'm really excited to show a classier, more sophisticated side of myself." Aww, SITCHHH. Check out more photos from his photo shoot below!
Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas on 'Dancing With The Stars.'
You guys, Kristin Cavallari is KILLING IT on Dancing With The Stars! She's on week three (!!!) and shows no signs of slowing down. Last night she danced the samba with partner Mark Ballas to Beyonce's "Crazy In Love," and DANG. Seriously, who can wear a completely backless dress and still manage to do fancy footwork? Not us, that's for sure. She opted for a fiery red number with fringe (again!) and sparkly speckles of gold. She stacked on matching red bangles and wore her hair down and wavy in pure K Cav fashion. Also, is it just us or was our Hills girl looking extra sultry last night showing off so much skin? Her ex-fiance Jay Cutler (who broke it off with K Cav in July) was spotted cheering for her on the sidelines, and we're guessing that might have a little something to do with it. But we don't judge! Girl can WORK any dress she puts on. Peep another view of her frock below!
Snooki on Sept. 24, and a flip-flop from her collection.

Earlier this summer we got a TEENY sneak peek into Snooki's sandal collection by peeping her super Snookified hot pink sequin flip-flops (yes, the ones with pickles on them), and luckily, friends, those bad boys were just the WEE tip of the iceberg. The Jersey Shore star posted her entire sandal and flip-flop line on Facebook, and whewwww boy! There's a whole lotta goodies in store. While the collection hasn't actually hit stores or online yet, take a peek at all her looks below to see which pair you want to snatch up!
Chains, bows, and animal print? No surprises here! Snooki stocked up on ankle sandals in every color pattern possible—black chain-link gladiators with jaguar print on the inside, brown cheetah ankle cuff thongs, and girly canvas ankle-wrap bow sandals that come in zebra print or green and beige. We could see Snooks sporting these when she's feeling more au naturel and subdued in a work-casual ensemble.
Sammi gets ready for the night.
Though the center of this Jersey Shore episode was undoubtedly Snooki's struggle with Jionni's disappearance and the rest of the house, namely JWOWW, banding together to break her out of the "Old Sam" moment she's having (i.e., ebbing and flowing between sobbing and screaming), tonight's dark horse Style Champ was the house's former crybaby drama queen herself, Miss Sammi "Sweetheart" for her exemplary Jersi-fication for this ep's house party.

The cool thing about Audrina Patridge is that she's always switching up her hair color. From light blonde highlights to soft black strands, Audrina has gone through the entire hair color spectrum multiple times. But when she turned up to a Bongo event yesterday (she's their spokesmodel!), she debuted a 'do even WE haven't seen on our Hills girl—ombre! We've spotted tons of celebs sporting this dark roots to light tips look as of late, but never on Ms. Patridge. Before she went blonde, Audrina sported shiny golden chestnut brown waves that really brought our her hazel-brown eyes and tanned skin. Now, her hair looks like a true West Coast girl who spends her days on the beach soaking up the California sun. But we did notice something PARTICULARLY interesting about Audrina's new 'do—it looks kind of familiar. In fact, it looks like the hair of someone she used to spend a lot of time with, and even used to be her roommate! Can you guess who it is?
Snooki gets seven patterns on her nails.

Here we are, going about our normal morning routine. Hang up the jacket, grab a cup of coffee, scour the feeds for news, catch up with Snooki on Twitter (as we do)...when our eyes happily fall upon a new Twitpic! Snooki has just gotten a brand-new manicure, and boy, oh BOY, is it a doozy. I know, I know, you have eyes, so you can obviously see this isn't your grandmother's go-to French tip (also, I know you know Snooki would never settle for something as ordinary [albeit beautifully classy] as that). This is something else. Something special! Snooki has broken new ground with this here manicure, opting for not one, not two, but SEVEN different patterns on just one hand of nails!
Pauly D in New York on Sept. 8.

According to TMZ (What? Isn't that where you get all YOUR news-worthiest news?) our Jersey Shore pal Pauly D is slated to get serious about the "T" in "GTL"—he's launching his own line of tanning products with Devoted Creations Inc. The line will feature tanning lotions and other sunless tanning products so EVERYONE can get that dark Seaside Heights glow. The collection will be sold in high-end salons throughout the world, so you can conveniently snatch up a bottle when you're getting your hair did.
Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas on 'Dancing With The Stars.'
Whew! Kristin Cavallari made it past the first round of Dancing With Stars (YOU GO, GIRL!), so we were super pumped to see our Hills girl dance in even more fun ensembles. Last week she went '40s flapper in a silver and black fringe dress, and this week she quick-stepped in a complete head-to-toe homage to Marilyn Monroe. K Cav channeled Marilyn à la The Seven Year Itch in a plunging flowy white halter dress, blonde pin curls, bright red lips, and to-die-for diamond earrings, necklace and bracelet. Her partner Mark Ballas kept it classy in a traditional tux with uh-mazing black and white polka dot wingtip shoes. Of all of the Dancing With The Stars outfits, this is by FAR our favorite. Of all time. YEAH WE SAID IT. We can't help it that 1.) Kristin looks amazing in basically anything and 2.) We have a weird obsession with retro fashion. We've got our fingers crossed in hopes that K Cav will make it to next week's round, and even she said "it's a tough season." Watch the full interview with Kristin below!
Looks from Lauren Conrad's Paper Crown Spring 2012 Collection.

We swear it feels like just yesterday that Hillsie Lauren Conrad released her Paper Crown pre-spring 2012 collection! From her nautical striped sweaters to pleated printed circle skirts, we couldn't wait to get our hands on everything. But we're happy to announce that her ENTIRE spring 2012 collection just dropped on LaurenConrad.com! LC describes her spring pieces as "very feminine with a glamorously retro twist. Think clean lines, luxurious details, and dainty accents." I'll say! Her warm weather looks are complete with LC's signature high bun and feature '60s-inspired Peter Pan collar blouses and jackets, bow-tied cuffed trouser shorts, and flowy chiffon shift dresses.
MTV's Spread Snooki app helps you add a little poof to any picture.

As every loyal meatball aficionado knows, Jersey Shore's Princess of Poughkeepsie, Snooki, has taken a break from her signature poof in favor of less gravity-defying 'dos. Now, don't get us wrong, we love the maturity of these new hairstyles she's dabbling in—the sleek and straight multi-colored streaks, the bouncy voluminous curls, THE BANGS—but sometimes we get a little nostalgic about that teased up crown tuft she wore when we first fell in love with her. Thankfully, there's an app for that! The hilarious/amazing/productivity-murdering Spread Snooki app breathes a little more poof into your everyday life. And OK right, this is an MTV-made app, so this borders into smarmy self-promotional territory, but even if Michael Smith of Middleburg, USA made this thing, we'd be writing about it because HELLO, Snooki's face on the Statue of Liberty is worth all of the words.
