There are some seriously ridiculous Tumblrs in the black hole of the blogosphere, but our latest discovery just might take the weird/crazy/cool prize of them all- at least for this week. Behold, "Famous Album Covers Recreated With My Socks." Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like... and yes, it's kind of amazing. Inspired by iconic album art from over the years from musicians like Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, and Pearl Jam, the brains behind the site have crafted their own version using.... the contents of their sock drawers.

Lady Gaga graced the September Vogue cover the best way she knew how—by channeling Fozzie Bear.

• Apparently Zac Efron starred in a John John Denim campaign, but we were too busy staring at his muscles to notice.

• This week, Teen Vogue revealed Selena Gomez as their September issue cover girl, and we are OB.SESSED. with the comfy, cool styling of the shoot.

• Olympics fever has officially set in! Highlights this week included Ryan Lochte's American flag grill, the women's gymnastics team's gold medal style, and all of the amazing the Olympics nail art so far. #TeamUSA

• The brand new Jeremy Scott for adidas Originals campaign dropped this week featuring Nicki Minaj and 2NE1, but the big names don't stop there. Sky Ferreira, Big Sean, and Chicago Bull Derrick Rose make appearances, too!

• In honor of One Direction's upcoming debut VMA performance, we took a look back at all (and we mean ALL) the boy band performance outfits of VMAs past. *swoooon*

• We ushered in the return of the iconic House Of Style series, resurrecting a collection of our favorite clips from HOS history.

Lauren Conrad debuted a craft series and her eco-friendly beauty and travel accessories line, and we couldn't be more proud of our Laguna Beach/Hills alumna!

• Last weekend's Teen Choice Awards were a hotbed of fashion news from Demi Lovato's outfit changes to Justin Bieber's robot arm to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's rare matching moment (*pours a little out*).

• We tried to take our minds off the KStew relationship dramz with Robert Pattinson's BlackBook magazine spread. Dude is deliciously casual in un-buttoned plaids and relaxed graphic tees.

• Miley Cyrus hit the New York fashion trade shows this weeks, and in one of her run-ins with the press, she hinted at fiancée Liam Hemsworth's desire to start a clothing line. HMMmmm, might Cinna have some style competition in The Capitol?? #hungergames

Miley Cyrus, tatoo

• Justin Bieber's fresh-off-the-presses "Hot Ready Legal" Rolling Stone cover is hereee, and while it borrows the same tagline as Lindsay Lohan's '04 cameo and bears a striking resemblance to Jennifer Lawrence's cover, we HAVE to talk about how they recycled Justin Bieber's identical outfit from last year! Hey, if it ain't broke..

• Lady Gaga gets covered in dozens of little ant-like men in her new nude "Fame" ad. It's very 50 Shades of Grey meets Gulliver's Travels, no?

• After suspecting wayyy back in February that Rihanna had a project in the works with Brit clothing label River Island, the news is officially out that she's doing a collab. Called it!

Bethany Cosentino wore some of our favorite designers, including Pamela Love, Marc Jacobs, and Rachel Comey, during Best Coast's Jimmy Fallon Show performance this week. #Love.

• We tagged along with Iggy Azalea while she got some sick nail art inspired by The Nanny! As if we weren't obsessed enough with her already...

Miley Cyrus, tatoo

Miley Cyrus debuts her new tattoo.

• Miley Cyrus flaunted way more than her engagement ring this week after a yoga class in West Hollywood. The singer and actress showed off her brand-new ink, which depicts a quote from former president Theodore Roosevelt inside her left arm. Oh, and did we mention it's her FIFTEENTH tattoo?!

• Justin Bieber wasn't even alive when the cult 1985 flick The Goonies first hit theaters, but the singer paid a fashion homage to the movie in baggy harem pants, a popped denim collar, and head bandana during a trip to Japan. Is he channeling his inner Josh Brolin? Your guess is as good as ours...

• True story: Demi Lovato loves Topshop. Don't believe us? We've got major sartorial proof straight from her X-Factor tour, where she rocks the U.K. retailer head to toe.

• Would you pay $90,000 for a t-shirt? We didn't think so. But if anyone has a couple of thousands of extra dollars lying around, go ahead and splurge on a seriously limited-edition Air Yeezy 2 top.

• He's ridiculously good looking, so it was only a matter of time before Swedish DJ Avicii scored his very first modeling gig. Check out his brand-new RL Denim & Supply campaign here!

A glimpse at the Angelica Dass 'HUMANAE' project.

Trend forecasting company Pantone has established itself as THE source to tell the world which colors we'll be wearing next season based off fashion designers, their runway shows, and data gathered from around the world. They've already teamed up with Sephora to inject some "Tangerine Tango" (the official 2012 hue of the year) into our beauty drawers, but for the style predictor's latest project, they're swapping out lipstick for... contemporary art? For her new exhibit "HUMANAE," Brazilian photographer Angelica Dass uses Pantone's signature color swatches to match up her subjects' skin tones. She then dyes the background of each person's portrait with this new, Pantone-approved skincolor in order to show just how identical the two really are. By extracting the shades with a scientific process and using the same system of labeling (we're talking serious detail here), Dass hopes to eventually identify every single skin tone in the world. Whoa.

BET Awards Willow and Jaden Smith

• From kooky zebra pants (Jaden Smith!) to sultry illusion skirts (Selita Ebanks!), the BET Awards red carpet was certainly filled with statement-making ensembles. Also, Nicki Minaj changed her outfit four times throughout the show, NBD.

• We celebrated our country's independence the BEST way we knew how—by rounding up some of the most awesome 4th of July nail art ever. Warning: These will blow you away.

Victoria Justice looked TOTALLY adorable in her prop-filled V Magazine spread shot by Drew Barrymore. CA-UTE.

• Some of the biggest celebs in the biz turned up to Versace's Paris Haute Couture F/W 2013 show, including M.I.A. in a head-to-toe vintage Lycra ensemble (!!!) and Lea Michele in a shocking orange frock.

• We know this is supposed to a round-up of this week's top headlines, but it must be noted that people STILL can't stop talking about Selena Gomez's fragrance commercial from last Wednesday. One look at that video, and you'll see why. 😉

Katy Perry Part Of Me

• This was the week of Katy Perry. The singer showed up to her Part Of Me premiere in a red VELVET Dolce & Gabbana dress (#sweating) and performed in a popcorn skirt complete with a film reel bra.

Selena Gomez ditched her wavy dark brown locks for a longer, lighter layered 'do, and we LIKE it.

• Speaking of Ms. Perry, the pop star revealed another, totally unrecognizable version of herself (think: blonde bowl cut and heavy '60s eyeliner) in the July edition of Vogue Italia.

• Eleven-year-old Willow Smith sent the internet world into a tizzy when she posted a pic of herself with a tongue piercing that she (later) admitted was fake. Whew!

• No matter how hot it gets outside, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Adam Lambert and Darren Criss refuse to put their leather pants away for the season. We ain't mad.

Cloth's new weather app.

Confession: ever since we first saw Clueless, like, a million years ago, we've been obsessing over a way to score Cher Horowitz's awesome computerized closet for ourselves. Although we probably won't be able to nab the real thing anytime soon (plus who are we kidding-our apartments are way too small for a walk-in space!), Cloth's new iPhone app comes about as close as we're gonna get. The company first emerged on the tech scene back in 2011 as a way to share outfits with friends, save your favorites, and organize your closet- virtually, anyway. Now it's announced a MAJOR update, one that's so genius we wonder why nobody has thought of it first. Enter Cloth Weather, the new component which incorporates the temperature into your daily fashion choices. Duh, right?!

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