Florence Welch, Rihanna, and Adele transitioned flawlessly from glam red carpet gowns to show-stopping onstage ensembles at the 2012 BRIT Awards!

• We saw a completely new side of Katy Perry when she tweeted a pic of her prison attendant character ensemble for Raising Hope. Two words: Hairy. Lip.

Rihanna celebrated her birthday this weekend in not one, two, three, but FOUR fash-filled ensembles. RiRi + her wardrobe = the gift that keeps on giving.

• If you missed the Grammys, here were the biggest fash-filled moments: Lady Gaga sitting front row in her Daphne Guinness meets Maleficent custom Versace gown, Jesse J going glam in a sparkling Julien Macdonald dress, and Nicki Minaj celebrating Halloween early in a couture red cape.

• Everyone's favorite pint-sized crooning couple Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez got even cuter when the Biebs bought Selena a diamond-encrusted "J" for Justin ring. Awww!

Kelly Osbourne is a purrfect vixen in the new Lovecat magazine, rocking skintight, bootylicious dresses, and a pretty-and-punky purple head of major hair.

• A glowing Demi Lovato tweeted her newly dyed flaxen 'do followed by the comment that "change is good." Proof that blondes do have more fun?

• Newsflash in "Duh" town: Adele is flawless, specifically in her Vogue cover, one of the more stunning displays of immaculate skin/hair/boobs we've ever seen.

Jersey Shore's Sammi "Sweetheart" dropped a Facebook gem this week: a little snapshot of her in adorable childhood fashion! Think baby liquid leggings. *hearts*

Justin Bieber has been going through a style metamorphosis of sorts recently, but this Fonzie-channelling slicked back look really took the cake this week.

• We celebrated Lauren Conrad's birthday this week with a fond look back at her best beauty looks of the year. Happy bday, gurl!

• As a girl who touts her style as "gaudy tacky and extremely out there", Snooki is no stranger to shocking fashion choices. In her latest sartorial escapade, she has dared to bare in a REALLY sheer dress.

Vanity Fair's annual Young Hollywood issue was released this week, and among the PYTs gracing the glossy's cover were MTV Style faves Rooney Mara, Jennifer Lawrence, and Mia Wasikowska.

Lauren Conrad continues to expand her business empire by releasing a collection of eco-friendly cosmetic accessories with sustainable products company BlueAvocado. LC going green, FTW!

• While we all were catching some z's on Tuesday night, Rihanna was having an all-out tat party in Hollywood, which resulted in having the words "Thug Life" inked on her knuckles FOR. EV. ER.

Selena Gomez performed in an entirely head-to-toe violet ensemble while in Puerto Rico earlier this week, and we mean that literally—even her hair matched her plunging purple stage outfit!

• All the amazing, post-apocalyptic fashion from The Hunger Games story has been turned into real-life Tumblr street style blog called Capitol Couture. Genius!

Miley Cyrus transformed her long, soft, wavy locks into a shaggy razor-cut bob. Do you like her new 'do?

Zooey Deschanel Golden Globes Nails

• The New Girl proved once again she's totes our kinda gal at the Golden Globe Awards. Besides debuting a va-va-voom bob and a rad rhinestone-encrusted floor-length custom Prada gown, it was Zooey Deschanel's tuxedo nail art that really wowed us that night. And, um, you KNOW how much we love nail art.

• We just simply CAN'T get over Garbage frontwoman and '90s alt fashion goddess Shirley Manson's V magazine shoot. The Grace Coddington blowout. The McQueen. The fierosh lace everything. The forthcoming LP needs to be released stat! We're only happy when it rains, Shirls.

• In case you forgot, the Golden Globe Awards were held this week, and that meant some serious head-turning looks on the red carpet. We picked our faves (obvs), which included the always-transcendent Tilda Swinton in a sartorial-slaying Haider Ackermann number and Nicole Richie looking like a million bucks in her sparkling Julien Macdonald gown. Werq it out, Golden Girls.

• Holy hair! This week, Justin Bieber darkened up his infamous 'do (and we approved), AND Selena Gomez punked it up with pink highlights. The kids are all right in our stylish books.

• Cue the cold showers: Rihanna's SMOKIN' in the latest crop of Armani ads. We're talking about Bardot-ish bangs, sultry eyes, and undies! Oh, and we think Ri Ri's supposed to be modeling jeans or something?

Robert Pattinson Shaved Head

• Breaking: Robert Pattinson debuted a buzz cut at the People's Choice Awards! Before you all start plotting a self-destructive Friday night dive bar crawl, you best believe he still looks SMOKIN'. Now we can finally focus on those baby blues.

• Cue the apocalypse—Selena Gomez's gone wild. Just kidding! Well, sort of. The cutie-patootie got her hurr did, and we're not talking about just another set of freshly tasseled extensions, we're talking edgy purple ombre tips! *Runs to local drug store's hair dye section*

• This People's Choice Awards were held this week, so, duh, we chose our top 10 best dressed ladies who werked that red carpet like their Alexander Wang open-toed stilettos depended on it. Kelly Osbourne and her flowy gray (!!) locks represented the understated rocker girls in Honor, Lea Michele gave us full-on smizing in Marchesa, and Chloë Moretz remained perfect in Proenza Schouler.

• In case you forgot, Demi Lovato is still amazing. The "Skyscraper" songstress teamed up with Aéropostale and the Do Something organization to spearhead the fifth annual Teens For Jeans campaign. Basically, it's time to rally your classmates into donating all those ill-fitting jeans you never wear and hand them over to homeless teens in shelters. Oh yeah, and the school with the most donated denim wins $5,000, new Aéropostale jeans for every student, and a big ol' PARTY. Win/Win!

• Our fave California Gurl Katy Perry is designing a line of fake eyelashes with British manufacturer Eylure. We can't WAIT to see (heh) what sort of eyewear she conjures up. You go, girl!

• A sultry songstress (Lana Del Rey!), the other Olsen sister (Elizabeth!), and a fashion blogger hell-bent on total world domination (Tavi Gevinson!) are just a few ladies that topped our Girls to Watch in 2012 list. Don't miss the rest of our soon-to-be-style icons!

• New Year's Eve fun fact: It's all about the party dress. This year our fave celeb NYE dresses included Lady Gaga's shimmering silver trophy-esque ensemble; Nicki Minaj's space disco diva outfit; Demi Lovato's age appropriate lace-y number; and Florence Welch's fringe-tastic prohibition glamor dress. Which one did you like best?

• We stayed up all Wednesday night glued to our MacBook screens as Kanye West tweeted about all things FASHION. We learned about his entire style history, his fondness of quoting Da Vinci, and ALL about his anti-grammar school ways. REBEL.

• This week, the perfectly chiseled, tatted hunk known as David Beckham stripped down to his skivvies for the launch of his new H&M body-wear line. We want all of him. Er, IT. WE WANT ALL OF IT.

Britney Spears has got a new wedding day prerogative! The princess if pop may be strutting down the aisle in a Betsey Johnson OR Jeremy Scott designed gown. Aaanndd we're officially dead.

Miley Cyrus Gold Dress

• Apparently just being Miley this week means wearing flowing, floor-length golden gowns. Yes, Miley worked two Red Carpets with two gold designer dresses this week by Roberto Cavalli and Jenny Packham respectively. She just can't be tamed, y'all. We still cannot decide on our fave dress pick, but Miley's glam side French braid look definitely deserves a fashion-y golden ticket.

• Fact or fiction: It was a really good year for the wig/extension/the rainbow-colored-dye industry. FACT. From emerging Aussie rappers to fearless mega pop icons, no one was safe from major Rainbow Brite-on-ecstacy dizzying colors to Rapunzel-meets-Little Mermaid-meets-insert-Disney-character-of-your-choice floor-length weaves. Oh, what an unbeweave-able (heh) year it's been.

• Understatement of the year: We are obsessed with K-Pop girl group 2NE1 AND designer-for-all-major-pop-stars aka Jeremy Scott. Duh. This week, we sat down with 2NE1 and J. Scott backstage after 2NE1's BANANAS first U.S. performance. Warning: Lots of fierce blinged out nail art and cray hair styles were involved. *shivers* In other news, somehow, some way, we are still alive.

• Are you a fan of a chunky open-toed shoe, a pointy, punk-y pump, or a classic Louis Vuitton? Well, so are Elle Fanning and Gwen Stefani! Yep, we've got you covered in the best of this week's shoe porn department. You're totally welcome.

• Call it what you will, but we kind of heart Jared Leto's so-called rock star life slash mullet thing he's got going on. Especially when it's documented in glorious 360-degree detail by Terry Richardson.

Katy Perry Blonde Bob

• Newsflash: Katy Perry is totally a mature and sophisticated California Woman as of late, y'all. She went on and made us weep with her "The One That Got Away" cinematic Danielle Steel-romance-gone-wrong music vid. And now, this week's SNL hostest-with-the-mostess opted for a severely chic bob over her multicolored signature wigs. *FAINTS* Butttt in true adorable Perry fashion, her chopped locks got the soft strawbs milkshake tint treatment, which proves you can take the girl out of Candyland, but you can't take the Candyland out of the girl.

Demi Lovato wins the "I Hate You Cuz You're Absolutely Beautiful Sans Concealer" award this week, posing without a DAB of makeup on the cover of Glamour Magazine. Not even a little eyelash-curling action, Dem? (Are you a real, like, person?) We insist Lovatz get on a little "Teenage Dream" pop-crooning covering ASAP, because we think you're super pretty without any makeup on, girl.

• This week in Lady Gaga related style news: she's still amazing. Mommy Monster rocked some Jessica Rabbit-ish-if-Jessica-Rabbit-was-a-kick-ass-biker-chick ensembles at the KIISS FM Jingle Ball in L.A.. Sequins, studs, and motor engines, oh my (GAGA)!!!

• Did we like, nail it or WHAT with our Best of 2011: Celeb Nail Art post? From Beyoncé's adorb neon rainbow paint job to Lauren Conrad's cutely colorful DIY nail work of art, it was a good year to put a ring(s) on it.

• Oh, and Lisa Frank makes clothing now. Some of it's only OK and some of it's FIRE.

Kim Kardashian Lip Tattoo

• It may not have been the first time we've ever seen the outrageous pout-enhancers, but Kim Kardashian's checkered lip tattoo really made a splash this week. While the print could conjure up visions of '50s diner floor tiling or a nod to ska, Kim paired them with a sequined tuxedo jacket and a smart bow tie.

• December finally being under way, everyone, especially celebs, are getting into the holiday spirit. This week, we spotted Justin Bieber wearing his version of an ugly Christmas sweater and later caught his boo, Selena, wearing a festive ensemble of her own.

• We interviewed the amazing costume designer for Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Michael Wilkinson, and got allll the deets about Bella's two wedding dresses, getting Robert Pattinson to wear shorts, and who made that black lacy lingerie K.Stew rocked in the honeymoon night scene.

• For, like, two seconds, Twi-dude Kellan Lutz had a Mohawk, and they were two of the best seconds of our week. He promptly shaved it off the next day. Was it something we said?? #sadface

• Things got SUPER juicy on this week's episode of Gossip Girl. We recapped the newest plot twists, the Chuck-Blair dramz, and all those metallic-laden fashion credits from the Studio 54 party.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
