Last night marked the Season 5 finale of Gossip Girl. Rumors loomed that this might be GG's last, but (thankfully) the show was renewed for its sixth and final season. It's welcome news, but we still have to wait until the Fall for the next episode. In this summer sign-off for Gossip Girl's penultimate season, we're still picking up the pieces from the shocking return of Bart Bass (Robert John Burke) which applies new tensions with Chuck (Ed Westwick), not to mention Rufus (Matthew Settle) and Lily's (Kelly Rutherford) fizzling marriage.

Serena (Blake Lively) was usurped as the acting Gossip Girl, and in the hustled change of hands instigated by Nate (Chace Crawford) and Lola (Ella Rae Peck), scarring pages of Blair's (Leighton Meester) personal diary found their way into GG's (and subsequently, the entire Interwebz) hands. Blair's intimate musings reveal to the Gossip Girl readers damaging tidbits about Blair's mother, the NYC restaurant community, and trouble in paradise with Lover Boy/Lonely Boy Dan (Penn Badgley). The episode marks the return of many other things along with Bart and Gossip Girl, but if you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Last night's season finale of The Voice was bursting with excitement, from the two-song return of Jamar Rogers to the triumphant crowning of Jermaine Paul as the Season 2 winner. Adding fuel to the fire, Justin Bieber made The Voice his vehicle of choice for the hotly anticipated premier live performance of "Boyfriend." The Biebs spared not a single swaggy detail for the live debut of the ear-wormy first single off his forthcoming sophomore album, Believe, elevating the collective blood pressure of ladybabies (and grown ladies alike) across the country with his smooth dance moves, a bit of bad boy steez, and (as always) notable attention to grooming.

Last night's Gossip Girl picks back up where last week's episode left off: the earth-shaking news that Chuck's (Ed Westwick) long-lost father, Bart Bass (Robert John Burke), has made a comeback from the grave. The truth comes out that Bart never actually died. In an effort to escape death threats and protect Chuck and Lily (Kelly Rutherford), he fabricated the entire thing with a little help from Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley).

When Chuck finds himself in such tumultuous circumstances, it's only natural that salt would be rubbed in old wounds. Of course Blair (Leighton Meester) must come to his rescue as his greatest pillar of support, but in doing so, she causes a little jealousy to flair up in her Lonely Boy beau, Dan (Penn Badgley). Serena (Blake Lively) comes to Dan's aide as a generous ear and a level-headed expert on B, but does this mean more than one old flame is being rekindled on the Upper East Side? The whole gang, Nate (Chace Crawford), Lola (Ella Rae Peck), and even Ivy (Kaylee Defer), teams up for Chuck's benefit, but if you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Rihanna commanded the stage at SNL in two streetwear-inspired looks.

She may have skipped the “Shy Ronnie” comedy skits this time around, but Rihanna still made a seriously stylish splash on SNL this weekend with two awesome musical performances. In true pop star fashion, the singer pulled out all the stops, jamming in front of a massive crystallized spider web for the opening song “Birthday Cake,” which quickly morphed into her thumping track “Talk That Talk.” Decked-out in an oversized sheer black tee, hot shorts, and over-the-knee boots, the singer’s first look was topped off with a studded baseball cap…in other words, streetwear-heavy pieces we need to add to our closets immediately.

This week's climactic episode of Gossip Girl both solved some problems and created a whole slew of new ones. Serena (Blake Lively) is still acting as the de facto Gossip Girl but Nate (Chace Crawford) and Serena's new half-sister Lola (Ella Rae Peck) have her number. No, wait, Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) has the real Gossip Girl's phone number and uses that to get Serena to steal back the day planner that Nate stole from Diana's hotel room. In it are coded phone numbers possibly revealing the whereabouts of one Jack Bass (Desmond Harrington) who may or may not be Chuck's (Ed Westwick) real father.

Speaking of which, Sir Chuckles enlists his former love Blair (Leighton Meester) to help him scheme a way around Diana's codes. She agrees and Serena decides to help, too, once she discovers that Chuck needs to take down Diana in order to find out who his father is but not without trying to steal the day planner first. They all wind up at a mansion that is actually a brothel (told you this episode was bazonkers) with Lonely Boy Dan (Penn Badgley) in hot pursuit thinking that Blair is canoodling with Chuck again. But wait, there's more! Serena gets super close to finding out who the real Gossip Girl is then totally fails. Diana reveals her true colors and sooooo much more behind the closed doors of the mansion. And let's just say there are secrets in this place of the ghostly variety. If you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

As expected, last night's episode of Gossip Girl was dripping with residual drama at every second in the wake of last week's big reveal of Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) as Chuck's (Ed Westwick) mother and the mounting marriage woes between Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Rufus (Matthew Settle). Dan (Penn Badgley) and Blair (Leighton Meester) are still just sorting out their respective roles in their relationship and an unexpected appearance by both on New York Magazine's latest approval matrix send B into a bit of a emotional tailspin.

Nate (Chace Crawford) is not convinced Diana is Chuck's mom, so he hires a private investigator to dig up the source of Diana's wealth and more about her identity, but Chuck respectfully abstains to sort out what kind of relationship he would like to have with his long lost mum. Lola (Ella Rae Peck) who put Chuck's mama drama on blast is confronted with an impromptu family reunion of her own, discovering that her father is actually Will van der Woodsen (William Baldwin). This makes Lola and Serena (Blake Lively) not just cousins, but half-sisters, and everyone a lot uneasy, especially Lily (of course). Everything comes to a head at Lily's forced family dinner, but if you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Girls Costumes

We have been waiting for (what feels like) our entire LIVES for the Girls show to premiere on HBO, and now that it finally did, we can happily say that it really does represent a 20-something's life in Brooklyn (not to mention it's filmed literally on the block we live on, NBD *hair flip*). The most realistic part of all, though, are those ensembles. Their no-frills outfits are reminiscent of a penny-pinching recent college grad who still has some expensive pieces left from their still-living-at-the-parents house wardrobe but want to mix it up with some cool, vintage pieces. Fashion Etc spoke with Girls costume designer Jenn Rogien, who has also worked on Bored To Death and The Good Wife, and she admits that this is definitely no Sex and the City wardrobe with Louboutins and Manolo Blahniks scattered throughout their closets. Affordability is key, and Jenn admitted that she *GASP* ACTUALLY stopped by some Brooklyn thrift stores to get the outfits absolutely perfect for their on-screen debut. She said, "If it seems right to go to Saks Fifth Avenue for some of the more special pieces, then that's where we would go. If it seems more right to go to Atlantis Attic out in Williamsburg, we absolutely went out there. We were probably at Atlantis Attic and Beacon's Closet for every episode because it's the right stuff, that's where those girls would go." OMG, they're just like us. :')

Bless you, The Voice. You, with your refreshingly innovative set-up, your high-calibur vocalists, and your truly star-studded judges panel. *SIGH* It all hits just the right chord to reinvigorate my faith in singing competition shows, and for that, I thank you. Thank you, also, for Christina Aguilera and this leotard/bustier get-up from last night's episode. Ever since this season went to the live shows, Xtina has been overhauling her closet and make-up routine for a more subdued but still totally smokin' personal steez that we can't help but stand up and clap about.

What is going on with you, Gossip Girl? It's all kinda CRAY on the Upper East Side as well as in Brooklyn, now that Blair (Leighton Meester) and Dan (Penn Badgley) are criss-crossing boroughs in order to figure out the proper way to debut their love affair. Even the parental unit of Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Rufus (Matthew Settle) can't figure out whether to keep it posh on the UES or low-key in the "718". All of this flip-flopping leads to dastardly results, obvs. While chilling in Williamsburg, Blair and Dan meet a cross-borough literary hipster couple who inspire them to have a "salon" in Dan's loft as their official coming out party. Sadly, Serena (Blake Lively), Chuck (Ed Westwick), and Nate (Chace Crawford) aren't invited, but they show up anyway to stir up trouble.

Serena's newly found cousin Lola (Ella Rae Peck) goes from temporary It Girl to paranoid gossip monger when she figures out Serena's identity. Yes, Serena is still acting as the de facto Gossip Girl, and Lola tries to rat her out but no one believes her. Meanwhile, gossip high-priestess Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) makes a deal with the real Gossip Girl in order to keep a certain secret involving Chuck Bass under wraps. But oopsies! Lola tapes an intimate convo between Serena and Diana that reveals this mega secret to the entire world (and it's a doozy), but is there more to this story? We think so. Also, did we mention this episode features a famous chef, bowler hats as overhead lighting, and the potential demise of a certain couple? If you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Greetings, MTV Stylettes! We can't reiterate enough how glad we are that the mini Gossip Girl hiatus is over. We definitely missed the heavy pour of drama that the young and beautiful Upper East Siders supplied to our drudging week beginnings. Nothing like Internet gossip blasts and opulent parties to break you out of a bad case of the Mondays. This week, Blair (Leighton Meester) is officially a free woman. Unshackled by her marriage to Prince Louis (Hugo Becker), Blair could have run straight into Lonely Boy Dan Humphrey's arms (Penn Badgley), but something seems to be holding her back. She doesn't let on whether it's the association with Brooklyn or maybe some deep-seated feelings for Chuck (Ed Westwick), but knowing Blair it's heavily over-thought.

Bass makes his entrance in a bright red adult onesie and spends the rest of the episode searching for his long-lost mother - she supposedly gave her blood for his life-saving transfusion. Serena (Blake Lively) has assumed the role of Gossip Girl 3.0 and is using her new power to position her new-found cousin Lola (Ella Rae Peck) as the next "It Girl" to take her place in the society pages. Perfect timing, really, because the return of Nate's (Chace Crawford) old flame Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) raises the stakes for sweet little Lola. Everything comes to a head at the Kiki de Montparnasse lingerie fashion show (naturally), but if you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest for you. Check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

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