When it comes to Lauren Conrad, there really isn't anything this modern businesswoman can't do. She's a fashion designer for not one but two different lines (LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's and Paper Crown), a New York Times best-selling author of four books, and a blogger for Forbes (which is the biz BIG TIME) in addition to running two of her own websites, a signature social networking site and The Beauty Department, which is all about makeup and beau-TAY (obvs). If you're a super fan of the former Hills-ie (like us, duh), then you're probably well aware of all of LC's inspiring accomplishments, but did you know that she's not done yet? Have you grasped that she's only just begun? Mark our words, we anticipate a full-on LAUREN CONRAD GLOBAL TAKEOVER in the coming years. Case in point, the recent announcement that she's going to start a beauty LINE.
Elle Fanning, Alexa Chung, and Dianna Agron at The Alexa Chung For Madewell Fall 2011 Collection launch on Sept. 21.
Remember when Alexa Chung modeled her Fall 2011 Madewell collection and we were all, "Awww, she looks ADORABLE! We want EVERYTHING when it comes out." Well, apparently a lot of other people felt the same way. When her collection hit the Madewell.com website yesterday, it crashed due to the high demand. While we're not surprised that people are clamoring for Alexa Chung's self-designed duds, today it seems that her items are ALREADY hitting eBay selling at double the retail price. Yowza! Luckily, we found some of our most beloved Madewell pieces (worn by some of our fave celebs!) that are all still available to purchase online. But HURRY!!! Seriously guys, this stuff won't last long.
The cast of "Jersey Shore" gets a new look for Jimmy Fallon's "Jersey Floor."

Go ahead and rub your eyes, but this picture of Jimmy Fallon and the cast of Jersey Shore (or most of it) is no dream. That is 100 percent Vinny and Ronnie in seventies era golf-dad-meets-used-car-salesman attire. Yes, that's JWOWW rocking a conservative hemline (and a hairstyle swacked straight off Madge from The Golden Girls). You're not making up that Snooki is blowing a kiss straight at the camera lens beneath a glossy chin-length bob. And for the last time, you really are seeing Sammi "Sweetheart" in a bun and shoulder sweater peering out from behind Deena in a top-buttoned cardigan and full A-line skirt. The Jersey kids' new looks are part of a HI-LARIOUS edition of Jimmy Fallon's Jersey Shore parody series, Jersey Floor, featured on Wednesday night's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Snooki gets into a car accident in Italy.
Last week's episode of Jersey Shore ended just as Snooki was smashing into the back of an Italian cop car. Girl was getting breathalized, there were talks of the crew getting kicked out of Italy, the boys rushed her most important documents to the scene of the crime.... Needless to say, it was drama with a capital "D" for sure. But in all the hubbub, we neglected to give proper note to these BONKERS chained up sunnies she's wearing mid-crash. Um, HAI. *waves* Want. Except, could they have possibly contributed to the accident? Hmm...we'll turn a blind eye this time, Snooks, and trust that the brake was really malfunctioning, but next time, maybe relegate these to pedestrian outings. Never one to disappoint, Snooki didn't stop there and kept the style running on all cylinders for the rest of the ep.
Seeing the words "Snooki" and "pale" in the same sentence is, I think, surprising to the point of reality-bending. Like, I'm expecting the walls to start melting and crying at any moment, and yet all things are the same save the juxtaposition of these two words. I guess I should be a little less freaked out since the paleness is relegated to the Snookster's lips and not the entirety of her prized bronze skin, but still. Shocking, right?? Our Jersey Shore princess has been rocking this frosted lipstick look for at least a couple weeks now, and we're still shuffling our feet, not sure how we feel about it.
Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas on 'Dancing With The Stars.'
It's been quite the summer for Kristin Cavallari! After hearing about her break up with fiance Jay Cutler (sadface), we've been worried about our Hills girl. But hey, fall's here and summer is out the door, which means a new start for K Cav. Just last night she made her Dancing With The Stars debut, and, um, she looked HOT. It may have been all those cha cha moves, but we were seriously proud for our girl! *tear* She and partner Mark Ballas looked smokin' in their matching black and silver ensembles while dancing to Taio Cruiz's "Dynamite." Kristin kept her hair down in effortless waves and danced in a low cut black dress with silver rhinestones and a bajillion stacked bangles. The black and silver fringe flapped EVERYWHERE, making it the perfect choice for leaving a lasting impression... or at least we hope so. I guess we'll find out tomorrow! *furiously bites nails*

Looks from Lauren Conrad's pre-spring 2012 Paper Crown line.

Even though Hillsie Lauren Conrad writes a business column for Forbes, dishes out beauty tips on her website, and has an ever-growing clothing/shoe/jewelry line for Kohl's, she has made it pretty clear that Paper Crown is still, above all, her "passion project". The collection, which first debuted its fall 2011 line earlier this year, features tons of whimsical maxi dresses, cropped leather jackets, and holiday-ready ensembles. We were SO STOKED to find that her collection landed at Nordstrom so everyone can purchase her items with ease, but we already wanted to know WHAT'S NEXT?! Then BAM, her pre-spring 2012 lookbook lands in our inbox, and we're PUMPED. Her warm-weather pieces feature pale pink mesh ruched dresses, work-ready pleated skirts, and billowy floral maxis. Even peep the photo above for a taste of what's to come—nautical striped boatneck sweaters and shorts, floppy hats, and printed miniskirts. Funnnn! Check out the entire lookbook below for her entire pre-spring 2012 collection (we call dibs on the platform pumps!).

Snooki with purple tips and tons of accessories at The Daily Beauty Bar on Sept. 13.

We know one thing for sure—even when Snooki has downtime, she still always manages to figure out SOMETHING interesting to do. Just this past week, our Jersey Shore girl dyed some of her blonde streaks royal purple for a punk 'do we're REALLY into. (But bright colored hair is nothing new for Snooks; she's rocked hot pink tips before!) Little did we know, dyeing her hair fun colors was just the beginning of last week's stylish adventures—she decided to have an all-out arts and crafts session by bedazzling some of her favorite accessories. And we ALL KNOW how much Snooki loves her accessories! (What? Are you doubting us? HOW DARE YOU. Proof. Also, can you say sunglasses/slippers/flip-flop line? Yeahhh.)
Deena Cortese in a crochet cowboy hat.
If you ever doubted whether Miss Deena Cortese was truly a "blast in a glass," tonight's episode of Jersey Shore SURELY stomped out any lingering diffidence. But we don't give out awards based on alcohol tolerance or accurate monikers! We're MTV STYLE. Therefore, we dub a weekly STYLE CHAMP, and this pristinely white crocheted cowboy hat really took the cake this episode. Its unique meld of femininity and ruggedness, its irrefutable summer-appropriateness, the way it mimicks the intricate patterns of Deena's boardwalk frock, it all definitely merits the "style" portion of this prize. The "champ," though? Well, Deena, you earned that hands-down when you went SO HARD on the dance floor that you fistpumped your bikini bottoms off! I almost don't know whether to shake my head or your hand.
Deena dances her bikini bottoms off.

Of alllll the celebs that come and go through New York Fashion Week, there are countless highlights for sure but we can't help it that our own MTV stars are just incredibly good-looking people who merit mention, OKAY?! Of course The City's fashion plate Whitney Port looked elegant in a white layered ruffled frock at a Rafael Cennamo spring 2012 presentation last week. We love her romantic tied-back waves, black studded clutch, gray strappy peep-toe sandals, fire engine red nails, and gold accent jewelry. Teen Wolf's resident redhead Holland Roden oozed sultry style while backstage at a Charlotte Ronson show. Her bold lips paired with her navy and white polka dot dress, navy leather jacket, brown belt, and white satin pumps made her look effortlessly cool. And Jersey Shore's own Sammi arrived at the Marithé + François Girbaud show in a leopard lace overlaid bustier dress (that fits her like a glove), a black cardigan and black pumps. She kept her hair simple and straight and accessorized with some giant gold hoops and a cross pendant necklace. Luckily this is just the BEGINNING of all the amazingness that was fashion week.
