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.

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. To see even more MTV stars dressed to the nines, take a gander through our photo gallery below!
Deena, Jane Lynch, Snooki, and Sammi after taping a segment for the Emmy Awards show.
The Emmy Awards are this Sunday night and they'll be hosted by Jane Lynch (aka Glee's favorite cheer coach Sue Sylvester), who's gearing up for all kinds of CRAY-NESS to make the broadcast fun, fun, FUN. What better way to get everyone excited for all of the zany hijinks and self-mocking laughter that's about to enSUE than to join forces with the cast of Jersey Shore? Lynch did just that when she posed for a photo recently dressed as a GLEE GUIDETTE (Glee + guidette = Gleedette! You heard it here FIRST!) with Deena, Snooki, and Sammi. Interestingly, unlike Anderson Cooper, Lynch appears to have NOT hit Snooki up for a spray tan tutorial. (Seriously, what's with the anemic glow, Lynchi? You best trade those white tights and get yer SPRAY ON! *Fist pump*) Still, we think she looks JUICED UP and hungry for meatballs (with a side of slushie!), like any GLEEDETTE would.
Tune in to the Emmy Awards on Sept. 18 at 8 p.m. ET/5 PT on FOX and check back with us for live fashion coverage of all the red carpet looks!
Snooki models her sunglasses on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."

OH MY GAHHHH, Snooki's sunglasses line is HEREEE! We've been anxiously awaiting the release of her collection after she tweeted a sneak peek of her hot pink "Poof Nation" shades nearly a month ago. Her line, appropriately named Snooki by Nicole Polizzi, features tons of oversized graphic sunnies decorated in everything from leopard print to studs to actual chains. The description of each item tells us that EVERY pair is ready for "hitting up the club" (which…is interesting because don't you go to the club at night? WE DON'T JUDGE.), so our Jersey Shore girl makes it simple to look rock-star ready in a snap.

Ever since Abercrombie & Fitch released a public statement asking The Situation to refrain from wearing their clothing (despite their own "The Fitchuation" shirts that have landed the company a cease and desist from Mike) because "Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image," we've been wondering how his other Jersey Shore castmates feel about the sportswear line. Perez Hilton caught up with Deena recently and asked her all about it. Read More...
Sammi Giancola at the Spring 2012 Bebe show.

If there's one person who LOVES Bebe, it's Sammi "Sweetheart." Our Jersey Shore girl has been spotted in the brand quiteeee a few times (our favorite being at last year's VMAs!), so it's no surprise that she landed a front row seat at the Spring 2012 show. In typical Sammi fashion, she wore her hair sleek and straight with a killer smokey eye and huge hoop earrings paired with a leopard print lace overlay bustier dress, black cardigan, and suede black platform pumps. And, seriously, it's no WONDER Sammi loves the Bebe brand—they are chock-full of leopard, skintight minidresses (with those gams, who wouldn't?) and buttloads of black (which is basically describing her entire wardrobe). But you know what's funny? Kim Kardashian also has an EERILY similar description attached to her clothing collection and even did that Kardashian for Bebe line last year. Also, she's been hanging out with Pauly D? What's the DEAL, guys? IS Sammi really morphing into Kim or is KIM becoming SAMMI? *head explodes* WE WILL NEVER KNOWWWW.
