Audrina Patridge's behind the scenes shoots for Bongo.

Sure, Lauren Conrad has an empire and Whitney Port has her own line, but Audrina Patridge—belle of The Hills—has a whole lotta sass. And it's clear in her new ads for Bongo, which features Audi (that's what we call her when she calls us up for fedora-wearing advice, which is, like, always) looking like she's got her confidence at an all time high. Instead of going sans-bra, The Hills-y dons a black hat and sky-high pumps and cocks her hip like a pro for Bongo's fall 2011 line, which lets her get down to her most animalistic with leopard print, zebra stripes, and a pretty fierce tiger shirt. In fact, this new, attitude-laden Audrina, is kind of doing it for us, and after checking out her "behind the scenes" shots, it's hard not to put your hand on your hip or your foot flirtatiously behind you.
Olivia Palermo in "Shop Til You Drop."

It seems like ever since The City's former Elle accessories editor Olivia Palermo left the small screen, she's been EXTREMELY busy. And we like it! She been gracing the cover of... basically every magazine ever . OK, well not EVERY magazine, but a lot. Even ones from other countries. Her fashionable self seems to be making quite the impression across the globe. On the Australian Shop Til You Drop magazine, Ms. Palermo rocks an incredible Sass & Bide layered leather cutout dress. It gives off a chic reptilian vibe (never thought we'd use those two descriptors together, but hey!) in a way that we're TOTALLY jealous of. Her hair, makeup, and accessories are minimal as to not distract from her killer dress. And, um, girl is CHISELED. Look at that jawline. Modddelll.
Pauly D and Vinny in their Italia track jackets.
If all of the crazy fashion AND fights in the entire next season of Jersey Shore are ACCURATELY depicted in this newly-released two-minute trailer, than HOOO BOY, are we in for TREAT. It looks like there's mad drama, mad fist pumping, and maaaadd Jerz fashion when the entire cast heads to Italy for a few months. But first up, can we talk about Pauly D and Vinny's cute-as-a-button matchy-matchy "Italia" track jacket sweatband outfits? I mean, not only did they buy similar Italian pride zip-ups, but they COLOR COORDINATED their sweatbands and sunglasses. We think every dude needs to man up, grab their heterosexual life partner and IMMEDIATELY cop this. Let's break it down.

The City's Whitney Port LIVES in her bikinis (with a bod like that, who wouldn't?!), so it's no surprise that when she stopped by Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim she took a dip in some to-die-for swimwear of her own. She sported a heavily embroidered white Mara Hoffman bikini (psssst...you can buy it this very second on Revolve Clothing), which kind of reminds us of her Fall 2011 Whitney Eve collection, don't you think? Whit Whit proves she can (of course) rock a teeny-tiny balconette top with ease, and the straps are easy to detach so there's no trace of tan lines. Even though this bikini is best suited for smaller-chested ladies, we think Whitney's smart for choosing the extra support for 100% swimming confidence. (Strapless tops + waves = no good.)
The best part about this whole steez? YOU CAN ACTUALLY GET THIS BATHING SUIT WET. I know you're thinking, "Huh, wha? You can't get some bathing suits wet?" Well, when it comes to intricate embroidery, especially on a white number like this one, you might express some hesitancy, but Whitney takes a full body dip in the ocean and *gasp* this beaut of a suit is still intact and not a whit (harhar) see-through.

Just when we thought Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi had graduated to wearing "real" shoes (well, "real" being, like flip-flops) outdoors, we're proven wrong with this pair of fluffy, foam-filled zebra-print faux-sneaker house slippers. Leave it to the reigning Jersey Shore Princess to keep us on our toes.
We concede that they're adorable, and given that they're from her own footwear line for Happy Feet, we get that Snooks is probably swimming in samples. And we know she probably just wants to rep and get sales up, just like many other MTV Stars—Pauly D in Dirty Couture and Lauren Conrad in Paper Crown—but maybe she should relegate them to lounging around the house or an afternoon on the duck phone? This all feels a little "Pajama Jeans" to us. We still love you, girl. We're just trying to look out.

It's less than a year before Kristin Cavallari's wedding (she's officially set the date for July 7, 2012!), and while she's been doing the typical bride-to-be things (like working out and tanning, obvs), she was spotted on Diesel's runway last night wearing a bikini covered in SHARDS OF GLASS. We give the ex-Hillsie props for daring to wear such a revealing (and scary) SKYY Vodka-inspired one-shoulder suit during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami.

Mere words cannot express how excited we are the cast of Jersey Shore is back stateside. Sure, we're religiously counting down the days until the Italy season premieres (EXACTLY three weeks from today, guys!!!), but it makes us breath a little easier at night knowing the gang's all here on the East Coast, enjoying the season for which Seaside Heights was MADE. The crew's homecoming also means that we get more happy shutterbug goodies rife with the cast's every move. Moves which seems to be growing ever more alternative.
Lauren Conrad for Kohl's.

When Lauren Conrad isn't busy writing for Forbes, dip-dying her hair, or launching beauty websites, she designs clothes! A whole heap of them. Not only is LC working on her personal Paper Crown line, but the ex-Hillsie also releases her seasonal LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl's! Just this week, we got our hands on the FULL summer 2011 lookbook (even though it's sort of late in the season), and we were reminded of how much we've been LOVING her breezy floral tops, comfy maxi dresses, and flirty skirts—which are by now mostly on sale (YUSS!). And also, that teal color? So gorgeous, especially with Lauren's new technicolor look.

Whoa. New acronym alert. With the GTL of Jersey Shore grooming protocol already wildly understood, it seems that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Deena Nicole, aka "The Blast" are ramping up to add another "T" into mix with the addition of these easily obtained, painless tattoos. The pint-size pickle gobbler and her ironed-haired, platform-flip-flop-shod pal were seen getting airbrushed temporary tattoos. Hearts, roses, and Catholic iconography, OH MY!
While these are a huge improvement and definitely WAY cuter than the stick-on joints of yore, we were hoping for something a little wilder—like a whole leopard-print sleeve for Snooks would have been major. Or maybe a tattoo of herself getting a tattoo of herself getting tattoo, etc., etc. What do you think? Cute? Or cute only because it'll wash off with a little exfoliant? What do you think the rest of the crew would've gotten? Allover print diamonds for Pauly? Brand logo placement for a reasonable marketing budget for The Situation? Let us know in the comments!

It's no secret Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi LUHHHHHVES her animal print, so it's only natural we spotted Snooks perusing the Shore with some multi-colored leopard tips! She funkified (what? That's a word.) her nail art by switching up the color pattern on each finger (she added some silvery-white in there as to not discriminate against the now endangered snow leopard species, OBVIOUSLY). But, did you know that you could be sporting feline fingers in a SNAP? All you have to do is snatch up these amazeballs pre-made press-on leopard print nail polish stickers by Sally Hansen from your local drugstore, grab a nail file and get to work!
