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?

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!

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!

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.

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.
