We've already seen Demi Lovato slay '90s grunge beauty dead with her platinum blonde hair and unabashed wielding of dark, DARK lipstick, so it was only a matter of time until her love for the era of Bill Clinton and Lisa Frank extended to the rest of her daily steez. Apparently, that day has officially come as Demi tweeted a series of nostalgic fashion tweets pointing to pictures of candy-colored comb-tooth headbands and tattoo choker necklaces, ultimately culminating in a mirror-shot selfie photo clad in head-to-toe '90s gear.
Don't say we didn't warn you. From first wind of K Pop rapper PSY and his outrageously epic "Gangnam Style" music video, we knew this dude was one to watch ESPECIALLY on the fashion front. We broke down earwormy vid look by look and all its sunglasses-and-fine-suiting and tacked PSY onto our mental watchlist of budding dude fashion stars. Lo and behold, here he is starring in a new video teaser for a little something Jill Stuart has coming down the pipe called "Gangnam x New York Style." *strokes silky, silvery thinking beard*
Iggy Azalea in Dim Mak's fall/winter 2012 lookbook.

Of course we all know Iggy Azalea for her on-point rapping abilities, but we always get a little weak in the knees when she busts out those modeling chops! The blonde Aussie has wasted NO time showin' off her posing skills ever since signing with Wilhelmina Models earlier this summer, and we're so not mad. Her latest endeavor is with Dim Mak, a record label/artist conglomerate (which includes DJ Steve Aoki who was featured in Iggy's "Beat Down" video) that not only creates killer music, but some suh-weet clothes too. They just released their West Coast-inspired fall/winter 2012 collection, which features tons of fun tanks, crop tops and tees. The best part, though, is seeing Iggy show off her ridic beauty game (and bod!) in the sunny streets of L.A. In her first look, she sports the Dim Mak ombre tank paired with cutoff shorts and sky blue sunnies. Perf!

I'd like to thank soul sister Melanie Fiona for making my <3 really feel thaaangs. I'd also like to thank her for executing fab fashion-y ferocity. With a penchant for throwing on some Louboutins, giving some major side-eye behind her Prada sunnies, and a perfect MAC pout, homegirl's style game is on point. You go, gurl. Additionally, my face almoooost started to leak when I first saw her latest music video for "Wrong Side of a Love Song", which means she's uber talented because I haven't bawled since Ginger Spice quit the Spice Girls/Britney shaved her head. #TeenTrainwreck So, here's my little present to all of you experiencing post-NYFW depression. Happy Favorite Thangs' Monday, y'all!
Lady Gaga wears a wedding dress in London this week.

• Between shaving her head and getting new tats, Lady Gaga has been BUSY this week. But despite all this news, nothing shocked us more than when she stepped out in London wearing a wedding dress. Here comes the bride...?
• When we found out the Jersey Shore's Sammi would be showing her debut fitness line at New York Fashion Week, we obviously had to get the scoop! The girl of the hour herself filled us in backstage in our exclusive vid.
• Remember when Rihanna flung her sunglasses into the crowd during her VMA performance last week? Well, turns out they were Jeremy Scott...and REALLY expensive.
• Whitney Port's collection, Betsey Johnson's birthday bash, and Adam Lambert's triple outfit switch...if it happened at Fashion Week, we were there to report back! Get caught up on our coverage here.
• Kylie Jenner, purple hair, and a "Sk8er Boi" soundtrack hit the runway at Avril Lavigne's sophomore Abbey Dawn show. Then again, would you expect anything else?!

Minnie Mouse looks from the Gerlan Jeans Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week show.

Gerlan Jeans may not currently be a household name, but when your front row is littered with major fashion players like Santigold, Kelly Osbourne, Angela Simmons, and TWO huge celebrity stylists (Katy Perry's Johnny Wujek and Beyonce's Ty Hunter), we don't expect their underground status will remain intact for much longer. PLUS, you know how we've been all, "Yo, what's up with fashion's obsession with Minnie Mouse right now??" Well, Disney ITSELF teamed up with Gerlan Jeans for a 14-piece Minnie Mouse mini-collection which opened the show. We caught Wujek taking snaps of more than a few of the cartoon-inspired ensembles, so perhaps there's a Minnie look in Katy's future (she has worn the designer before, after all)!
Adam Lambert at Falguni & Shane Peacock, The Blonds, and hanging around the Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 11.

Sure, we've seen TONS of celebs at fashion week sporting their finest designer duds all over Lincoln Center, but we hadn't seen anyone switch up their ensemble more than once a day until *drum roll* Mr. Adam Lambert. Yesterday he changed outfits not once, not twice, but THREE times within the daylight hours, and for that, we need to bow down, y'all. He started off his Tuesday wearing a distressed gray suit jacket paired with a black button-up shirt and brocade pants. He accessorized with spiky black boots, circle sunglasses (that he wore in his suit pocket), stacked rings, and silver earrings. His beauty game was on lock (per usual) with his sleek and styled silvery hair paired with dark brows, a bit of mascara, and black nail polish. Me-ow!
Sammi Giancola and a look from her fitness collection at New York Fashion Week on Sept. 10.

These days it seems like ALL the Jersey Shore girls have been inching their way into the fashion world—JWOWW launched her Filthy Couture line back in 2010, Snooki has been KILLIN' it in the accessories department (sunglasses, flip-flops, slippers—you name it!), and now Sammi is finally making her stylish debut. The Jersey Shore girl launched her own fitness line (called The Sammi Sweetheart Collection) in conjunction with SXE Fitness at New York Fashion Week yesterday, and we were there to watch it all go down from the front row.
Rihanna performing in Jeremy Scott's M16 sunglasses on the VMAs.
What began as a typical performance flourish quickly turned into big time fashion drama when Rihanna took to the stage at the 2012 VMAs wearing a one of a kind sample of Jeremy Scott's Spring/Summer 2013 M16 sunglasses, but left without them, having tossed them into the crowd. The designer, who is showing his collection, inspired by the middle east and called "Arab Spring," at New York Fashion Week this Wednesday, took to twitter, confirming that "YES THOSE WERE [his] 24K GOLD M16 SHADES THAT RIHANNA WORE TO OPEN THE VMAs," and then imploring fans for their return by saying, " IF UR DA1 WHO CAUGHT EM PLZ GIVE EM BACK !"
Alicia Keys at her 2012 VMA rehearsal in LA.

OK, you know how you suspect that Alicia Keys’s IRL voice would be bonkers because, um, hi, it’s Alicia Keys? Well, I got to witness her rehearsal and I can confirm with solemn conviction and super-bugged eyes that GIRL ON FIRE. Seriously. I’d seen Ms. Keys perform at various events but there’s something about the absence of an entire cheering audience that makes her voice fill a room. Mind you, the room in question is the monstrous Staples Center, so this is no small task. Wearing speckled sunglasses, a rope chain flooded with small gems, with slicked back hair and a black tank, Alicia pounded on the keyboard with stunning aplomb that showcased a spectacular gun show. As in, HAVE YOU SEEN HER ARMS LATELY? They are seriously sculpted.
