• Tween actress Chloë Moretz outshines women twice (and thrice, yikes) her age on the red carpet, and she recently revealed that she does it sans stylist. {Glamour}

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (known to the well-heeled world as Dolce & Gabbana) are probs losing their minds rejoicing—the duo was acquitted of tax evasion (they were charged with failing to pay taxes on $1.1 billion in sales) by a judge who said there wasn't enough evidence to go to trial. Thank the satin-covered floral heavens. {Fashionista}

• The similarities between teen-blogging phenom Tavi Gevinson and Bebe Zeva, a 17-year-old fashion blogger, are sorta freaky—they both have four-letter names, they both live in non-fashion forward cities, and they are both as interested in fashion as they are in writing. And they're both preternaturally talented in a manner that freaks you out a little! {Elle}

• According to a news study out of the Netherlands, wearing designer labels—Lacoste, Hilfiger, Chanel [interesting threesome, no?])—could help you land a new gig. Yeah, but what if you need the new gig to afford to buy those designer labels. Chicken. Egg. Cart. Horse? {Styleite}

• Dude florals aren't just for island hopping anymore. The trendy (albeit sorta fey) print has been spotted under blazers, on button-downs, on Dr. Marten shoes, and Ray-Bans. {Fashion Indie}

Jessica Szohr has been tapped as the new face (er, armpit?) for Dove's Ultimate Go Sleeveless deodorant, an antiperspirant for women who like to go sans sleeves. {People StyleWatch}

Carrie Underwood hit the stage at the 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards rocking bright pink hair extensions. Looks like SOMEONE got hit by the Rihanna hair color bug. {Stylelist}

• Ever wonder what fashion designer Betsey Johnson wore to her senior prom in 1958? Apparently, it was something strapless, something calf-length, and something super-poufy. {Coco Perez}

• Actress (er, hair chameleon) Hilary Duff was a chestnut brunette for a mere six months before stepping out this week with blonde-again locks. We feel ya Duff—with so many color options, why commit to just one? {Us}

• Someone (maybe it was Notorious BIG??) once said: "Mo' money mo' problems." The sentiment couldn't ring truer for Britney Spears. A marketing company claims that Brit-Brit owes them a 35 percent cut on sales of her fragrances—Curious, Fantasy, Believe, and Circus—and is suing for $10 million. {Styleite}

• Jewelry-drenched Jennifer Lopez is WORKING IT in her new global-themed Tous ad campaign. {People StyleWatch}

Christian Siriano has unveiled his cleaning sponge designs (think leopard print and retro patterns). Nope, this isn't an April Fools' Day joke. {The Cut}

Khloé Kardashian scored her first solo cover—wearing a pink, ruched strapless minidress—with this month's Cosmopolitan Middle East. {Styleite}

• Who remembers the Wonderbra ad featuring model Eva Herzigova from 1994? If you don't, you should check it out—it was recently named the most iconic billboard EVAH. {Glamour}

• In the new indie film Hit So Hard, Courtney Love says there's footage of her, her late husband Kurt Cobain, their daughter Frances Bean, and renowned designer Karl Lagerfeld telling her to lay off the tutu-wearing. Did she abide? Not a chance. {Styleite}

• Want to get 20 percent off at Ecko for the rest of your life? Well, if you get a tattoo of the brand's Rhino logo you can. Hello, tattoo remorse! {Coco Perez}

Brad Goreski, Rachel Zoe's ex-assistant, has ARRIVED. The stylist, whose celeb clients include Cameron Diaz and Demi Moore, has snapped up his own Bravo reality show called It's a Brad Brad World. It sure is! {Stylelist}

• British singer/songwriter-turned-celebrity clothing label backer Liam Gallagher recently said in an interview with Spin magazine that the difference between his recently launched label, Pretty Green, and Jay-Z's Rocawear is that the wearers of his threads won't get arrested. Wow, dude. Loaded statement, much? {Styleite}

Kate Moss' fiancé, Jamie Hince, revealed to Express UK the he and the supermodel get custom clothes made on the cheap via "an amazing tailor in Thailand." {Glamour}

• According to one body language expert (who analyzed several Fall 2011 runway shows) the way you tote your handbag could reveal tidbits about your personality. Go science! {Vogue}

• Check out Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley showing off his modeling skills (wooooork) in a new campaign for H&M's 2011 Fashion Against AIDS collection. {People StyleWatch}

• Unlike many designers who want to change the world (or something else equally dramatic) with their clothing lines, Gwen Stefani admitted in a recent CNN interview that she launched L.A.M.B. for her own personal gratification. Nothing more. Nothing less. {People StyleWatch}

• That orange/pink/black striped Prada dress (you know the one) strikes again! This time, Zooey Deschanel appears on the May cover of Canadian fashion magazine Flare wearing the sheath with red lips and nails. {Coco Perez}

• Sooooooo, it was Anna Wintour who personally invited a green-haired Nicki Minaj to perform at the Runway to Green Vogue charity event on Tuesday night. Hmmmm...could this be a hint of a future Vogue cover for Ms. Nicki-Nicki? T'would be bonkers. {Coco Perez}

Lady Gaga reportedly has a new side hustle as a writer for V, a high-fashion magazine. Before her first column hits on May 12, she's asking her fans to submit illustrations of her as an editor (don't forget the horn bone prosthetics). The best drawing will accompany the singer-turned-scribe's monthly musings. {Fashionista}

• At least one student at Ellender High School in Louisiana is fighting the principal's ruling that prohibits girls from wearing tuxedos to the prom. Hello, Mr. Principal! Isn't this the 21st century? {Glamour}

• We didn't see this one coming: According to Reese Witherspoon, her Water for Elephants costar Robert Pattinson had "dirty fingernails and hair," and "his clothes were dirty all the time." Method acting? {People StyleWatch}

The Kardashian crew—Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney—and their mom, Kris Jenner, are clad in white frocks and nude pumps on the May cover of Redbook magazine. Inside, the ladies tell why they just might be the hardest-working family in showbiz. {Us}

• The latest comic book heroine? That would be Angelina Jolie. We're kinda sad that the new 32-page book "Female Force: Angelina Jolie" features an introspective look at the star's career and family life...instead of showing Angie kicking bad guy butt. {Us}

• Rapper Foxy Brown got the boot in the Cayman Islands from cruise security after she LOST IT when spa staff denied her an onboard nail appointment for which she was three hours late. Dang, don't mess with a girl in need of a fill-in! {Us}

• The new Alexa Chung for Madewell collection hits soon, but as you wait (patiently), check out the five mix-and-match pieces she plans to wear to the ground. {She Finds}

• Actress Emmy Rossum recently admitted that after a horrific haircut when she was 5, she's steered clear of scissors. When she does get her luscious locks trimmed, she freaks out. Poor girl. {People StyleWatch}

• If you have to regularly trim your Latise-enhanced lashes like Claire Danes, they've probably reached their max, says one makeup artist. {Allure}

Kelly Osbourne is working on designing a jewelry line, but she can't talk about it. Boooooo. We don't like secrets, especially when bracelets are involved. {Styleite}

Lil Wayne is on the cover of the latest issue of Interview magazine. But that's only half the story. On the inside, the rapper is interviewed by Paris Hilton. That is all. {Highsnobiety}

Katy Perry made up for her 'E.T.' music video.
Photo: Katy Perry's Facebook

Katy Perry took to Facebook to reveal her alien transformation for her upcoming music video, "E.T." It's looking like a 180 from her candy-coated "California Gurls" vid...and just might remind us a little of "Avatar." {Stylelist}

Lady Gaga's custom "Born this Way" cowboy boots, which were embellished with unicorns and rainbows, took 500 HOURS to make! Just think...that's 373 more hours than James Franco's arm was stuck under that rock #127HoursJokeFTW {The Cut}

Jennifer Hudson revealed that her fiancé is still getting used to her new slimmed-down bod and couture wardrobe. Girl is gorgeous either way if you ask us. {Us Weekly}

• Looks like Chris Brown is SO OVER his bleached-blond hair. The singer tweeted a pic of himself showing that his roots have been dyed back to their dark shade. {Just Jared}

• They play high-schoolers on TV, but what did the cast of "Glee" look like when they were teens? Peek through their yearbook photos and thank the stars for celebrity stylists. {InStyle}

Natalie Portman's "Black Swan" dance double Sarah Lane wants her fair share of credit -- she claims Natalie only did around 5 percent of the dancing, while Portman's fiancé, Benjamin Millepied, is defending his No. 1 ballerina. Can we all just agree that it was a beauty of a film? {Styleite}

Kim Kardashian on March 8, 2011.

• This week Kim Kardashian, who is working on her third eau de parfum, opened up the floodgates by tweeting that she's taking fragrance name suggestions. Responses ran the gamut from "Kimberlicious" and "Karma," to "Overexposed" and "American Booty." Lesson: Careful what you ask for on Twitter. {Allure}

• Just when we thought baby high heels were about as bad as it could get (in terms of grown-up clothes little people have no business wearing), Abercrombie & Fitch is now featuring a range of "Push-Up Triangle" bikini tops in their children's swimwear line. In what meeting did people decide that this was a cool idea for a 7-year-old?! {Racked}

• Wondering what every PYT will be swinging over their shoulder this spring? Louis Vuitton's "Alma Nomade" satchel, Jil Sander's "Market" tote, Proenza Schouler's cross-body bag, or Celine's zip-around shoulder bag, say celeb stylists. {People}

• We knew that the late Elizabeth Taylor loved her some bling (it's just one of the many reasons why we loved her), but we didn't know her affinity for gemstones was worth $150 million! {Huffington Post}

• In Anna Wintour's WSJ magazine feature story, the editrix admits to regretting putting The Spice Girls on Vogue's January 1998 cover. {Jezebel}

Havaianas, the famed Brazilian flip-flop company, is branching out and introducing its first closed-toe creation on Monday. We're still debating if the design is cool or if Havaiana should just stick to flip-flops. Thoughts? {Stylelist}

• Seventeen-year-old Miss Antonio Domonique Ramirez was stripped of her title for being too fat. RUDE! But a Texas courtroom recently relinquished the beauty queen's crown. Justice served. {Huffington Post}

• Design house Liberty of London has teamed up with Nike on a collection of floral sneakers. There's nothing like flowers to make it feel like spring (when it's really snowing outside!). {SheFinds}

• Ex-French Vogue Editor in Chief Carine Roitfeld has a new 9-to-5—the fashion plate will act as editor, muse, and stylist for Barneys' Fall 2011 catalog, campaign, mailers, and the Madison Avenue windowscapes. {Fashionologie}

• Guess what (heh)? Actress Amber Heard (from Pineapple Express and Zombieland) has been named spokesmodel for the new Guess 2011 fall campaign. {People StyleWatch}

• Colorblocking was all the rage on the spring runways, including Proenza Schouler and Christopher Kane. If you think "colorblocking" has something to do with Legos or crayons, watch this how-to. {Fabsugar}

• According to this video, a dab of aspirin will calm the mean-red Mt. Vesuvius-size zit on our chin. We'll believe it when we see it. {Styelist}

• "I personally know of one model who dipped cotton balls in orange juice and consumed it to feel full," says Janice Celeste, mother of supermodel Sessilee Lopez, in her tell-all (disturbing/addictive) book, Making a Supermodel. {Huffington Post}

• The same company that made those tinsel extensions that Beyoncé wore to the Grammys last year, has now set their sights on plumage. Hair Flairs now offers an at-home feather extension kit. Feather Party. {Allure}

• We thought that a fragrance made to smell like human poo was gross enough. Then we saw the fragrance's ad. GROSSEST. {Fashionista}

• More fashion designers. More legal woes. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (Dolce & Gabbana) have been accused of tax fraud for failing to pay taxes on more than $1 billion in income, and will soon stand trial...and could face jail time. We're deeply upset. And intensely preoccupied with what they'll wear to court. {The Cut}

• Check out Gisele Bündchen's full Vogue Paris spread. It's bedraggled (seriously) in all of the right ways. {Styleite}

• In her cover story for the UK magazine Fabulous, Rihanna says she chose red (instead of green, purple, or pink) for her hair because it was "like the fine line between normal and extreme." {Coco Perez}

• If you like patterns and one-shoulder frocks, you're going to love Matthew Williamson's Impulse for Macy's line. If you don't like that aesthetic, that's OK too. *shrugs* {Glamour}

• Oof. According to reports, 32 percent of British women under the age of 30 have started to go gray, which is up 14 percent from just a couple of decades ago. Stress strikes again. Also, maaaaaaybe the reason behind the latest rash of going-gray-for-style? {Huffington Post}

Steven Tyler reportedly gets stem cell facials, eyelash extensions, and wears makeup. Work! {Allure}

Max Azria, sir, we love your designs (especially this bandage swimsuit that you designed for Herve Leger), but really? Beachwear that we can't get wet? Really?! {Coco Perez}

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen wax on leaving the big bad world of acting for the big bad world of fashion design in this month's issue of Vogue. {Huffington Post}

• Who will be designing looks for Ricky Martin's upcoming Musica + Alma + Sexo world tour? Giorgio Armani of course! {People StyleWatch}

• Soooooo Jane Pratt is launching TWO websites (and maybe helping out on a magazine?)—one for fortysomethings and one for teens (for which she's enlisted the help of wunderkind Tavi Gevinson). We smell an empire. Also, full disclosure, our own senior editor was quoted in the article. #coughcough {WWD}

Zombie Boy a.k.a Rick Genest.
Photo: Courtesy of Thierry Mugler.

• To get the excessively tatted Rick Genest (aka Zombie Boy) to Paris to walk in the Mugler runway shows, Nicola Formichetti spared no expense—the creative director paid off Zombie's nearly $20,000 legal fees, which were preventing him from getting a passport. That's dedication (related: We love you Zombie Boy! Call us!). {Fashionologie}

• We'd always imagined that Christian Louboutin got his red sole idea from a magical fever dream or even Louis XIV. But, really, he admits in the New Yorker that the idea came while watching an assistant paint her nails. Exactly where we get all our best ideas. #fumes {Glamour}

• The Obama ladies' frocks were cute, but what really caught our eyes was Michelle, Sasha, and Malia's wrists, loaded with chunky bracelets. Hmmm, we wonder if President Obama felt left out. {Glamour}

• Inspired to rock armfuls of jewelry now? Grab these... {Refinery}

• To promote her new album, Born This Way, Lady Gaga released a photo of herself looking deliberately emaciated (prosthetic cheekbones, painted eyebrows, etc.). Thoughts? {Daily Mail}

Christie's is auctioning off a RIDIC Chanel package that includes a hotel stay in Paris, dinners, front row seats at the Chanel Couture fashion show, a meet-and-greet with Karl Lagerfeld, and a Chanel handbag. Bids are currently at $21,000 (!!!), and proceeds go to earth-preservation non-profit organizations. {Coco Perez}

• That Burberry Bonded Nappa Biker Studded Trench coat that EVERY celeb is wearing these days costs almost $8,000! Why don't you save yourself $7,940 (for college or a car or an international vacay) and DIY that ish. Here's how... {Who What Wear}

• Yo, kids, GQ magazine is on the hunt for NYC-based fashion lovers to intern in the publications Fashion Editorial department over the summer for college credit. What are you waiting for? {Fashionista}

• And, P.S.: MTV Style is hiring too! We're looking for a Production Assistant who is a fan of fashion, music and pop culture, and who can write (about fashion, music and pop culture) at a dizzying pace with a dazzling point of view—who can DANCE. {Mediabistro}
