I guess the more appropriate way to start this conversation is by letting you know that temporary tattoos for dogs do, in fact, exist. Yes, friends, the practice of ephemerally branding yourself with butterflies and hearts and stars is no longer limited to humans. Welcome into the fold, canines! And extend your paws to shake the hands of Jorge Bendersky, the New York-based dog
groomer stylist who is largely responsible for setting this trend ablaze thanks to a high-profile Upper East Side clientele. And yes, according to DNAinfo.com, temporary tattoos for dogs ARE trending, extending to far-reaching exotic locations like Australia, Poland, and *achem* Iowa.
Pixelated Winged sneakers from Jeremy Scott for Adidas.

We all know about life's great combos. There's peanut butter and chocolate. Black and gold. Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Summer and Earth. And of course, Adidas and Jeremy Scott.
When Adidas launched their first collection with the whimsical designer back in 2008, the partnership was an instant sensation. The very point of Adidas Originals is for the brand to team up with friends and let their freak flag fly, so who better to add a boost of eccentricity to Adidas classics than the lovable quirkmeister himself, Jeremy Scott?! Since then we've seen his winged high tops on everyone from Lil Wayne to Blue Ivy to maybe even your sassy grandmother. And count Rebel Wilson as a fan of his more cuddly creations— she recently wore his Pink Poodles on Letterman. What we're getting at here is that people love the Adidas x Jeremy Scott collections, and they've been crazy bestsellers for the brand. Because wings on shoes, that's why.
Nicole Richie dons protective glasses as she awaits the laser.
Nicole Richie is HILARIOUS. She got her start on reality TV alongside bestie Paris Hilton on The Simple Life, and has proven her on-screen style savvy as a mentor on NBC's Fashion Star alongside Jessica Simpson and John Varvatos. Not that we had ANY questions about Nicole's style smarts—she is the design mastermind behind House Of Harlow 1960, Winter Kate, AND an eponymous Macy's line, not to mention a street style staple. Combining her gifts for humor and sartorial flair, Nicole is back on the small screen with her new AOL webseries #CandidlyNicole, based on her irreverent Twitter feed, and we have to say, it has us in stitches. In the first episode, Nicole pays a visit to Dr. Tattoff (not his real name, but don't tell Nicole that), to inquire about having an unfortunate piece of body artwork removed. Listen, we're not going to judge anyone's youthful indiscretions, but we agree that maybe a cross tramp stamp isn't the look a stylin' mother of two is going for. Nicole chats with the good doctor, as well as with some of her fellow prisoners of bad decisions, who are in the market to remove tats as classic(ally bad) as twin cherries or as confusing as a neck tattoo that says "TIMETRAVELER" but "everyone thinks it says 'Timberlake.'" Ummmmmm, good luck with that. Nicole actually has NINE tattoos, but she isn't looking to get all of them removed "just the embarrassing ones."
It's no secret that Emmy Rossum rules the small screen each week as Fiona Gallagher on Showtime's comedy Shameless (if you haven't seen it yet, start watching now!). However, if you've been lucky enough to catch the actress belting it out in flicks like Phantom of the Opera, then you know that she's also got a MAJOR set of musical pipes. And trust us when we say her vocal talent isn't just movie magic, either. Emmy's a classically trained singer, and her new album Sentimental Journey comes stocked with unique covers of classic songs spanning from the 1920s all the way to the '60s. Yep, what's old is officially new again, and a music project like this one calls for an equally retro music video look. Whether it's raiding flea markets or using old costumes from the eras to give the vids like "These Foolish Things" an authentic appeal, Emmy's a total vintage fashion PRO.
Florence Welch, Katy Perry, and Carey Mulligan at "Dress Gatsby".
It's unfortunate that the word 'timeless' is so overused, because there are some things that really deserve the designation. Miuccia Prada's designs are one of those truly timeless things, and that fact has never been more apparent than at the opening of "Dress Gatsby" at the Prada flagship store in New York City. Showcasing the 40 dresses costume designer Catherine Martin hand-picked for the pivotal party scenes in The Great Gatsby, the exhibit was a chance for party goers to see some of the modern designs that fit so seamlessly into the period piece, proving that anachronism is truly in the eye of the beholder. Although the gilded gowns were designed in and for the modern day, they don't pull you out of the roaring '20s feel of the film for a moment (at least from what we've been able to gather from the trailer). Also showcasing the sleek lines and delicate details of Prada's designs were some of the event's attendees, who ranged from those intimately acquainted with the Gatsby dresses—the film's star Carey Mulligan—to soundtrack contributor Florence Welch and, of course, celebs who are fans of the label, like Katy Perry, who broke up the crowd clad in minimal black in a graphic, muted purple floral dress with black and white detailing.
Cara Delevingne is Miss 'Vogue''s first cover girl!

The secret's out, y'all! British Vogue officially has a cool little sister in the newly-launched Miss Vogue magazine. And let's be honest—who better to front the glossy's debut issue than Cara Delevingne? After some Twitter teasers this week about the mystery cover girl, today is the day we can finally feast our eyes on Cara in ALL her pretty, pink glory. The notorious industry goofball, onesie queen, and 2012's Model of the Year is smiling wide in bold red lipstick and dressed in a custom Topshop Unique ensemble. The 20-year-old has been a longtime favorite of the U.K. retail giant, walking in the Fall/Winter runway show as well as being a key player in the brand's tech-savvy catwalk production. While Topshop's boundary-pushing goods are nothing new, here Cara's throwing back to the ultimate middle school style trick by layering her sequined cami over the basic gray crewneck (remember those days?!).
Guys, something very magical happened last night: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their vows at Disneyland. But, in pure Mariah fashion, this wasn't just any ol' 5th anniversary. She shut it DOWN with an all-out Cinderella-themed ceremony (as in, like, she actually shut down Disneyland for a night *bows down*) while wearing a white princess ball gown with a strapless lace corset, diamond necklace, diamond studs, and a diamond tiara. The best part about the ENTIRE ceremony, though, was how Mariah tweeted and Vined the HECK out of her night. Our favorite parts included 1.) Watching three people help Mariah put her dress on, 2.) "Mommy" hanging with princess Monroe before the night started, and 3.) Mariah using the hashtag "#donthatemebecauseimadiva" while she made her way to the "freezing cold guests" in a Cinderella carriage. YEP.
Miley Cyrus for "V" Magazine.

We may STILL be reeling off of Miley Cyrus' TWO ELLE UK covers, but the platinum pixie-headed girl isn't stopping there on her quest to plaster her mug all over your newsstands. Hot on the heels of the ELLE UK release, V Magazine has revealed Billy Ray's little girl as their Summer 2013 cover girl. Not once, not even twice, but THREE. TIMES. *wipes sweat from upper lip* PHEW!
Some of the rad stuff that we can (finally!) score, thanks to Hukkster

Earlier this week Time Inc. released its Top 10 Startups to Watch in 2013 List, and we've got to admit: between all the key players in tech and social media these days, the fashion world was disappointingly underrepresented. But alongside emerging businesses such as Grouper and ArchetypeMe, ONE glimmery style startup managed to snag a spot on the coveted list. Meet Hukkster, the new platform aimed to change the way we shop online. But before you go tightening your grasp on your wallet and clutching your credit card with the jaws of life, hold up! Ironically enough, Hukkster's not about making you splurge more—at least, not technically—it's actually about helping you score the pieces you love for less.
Ke$ha and Justin Bieber in American flag onesies.
We have to admit, we love being able to call Ke$ha an MTV star. In case y'all haven't heard, the glitter-obsessed pop star launched her own TV series called Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life last week on this very network (it airs every Tuesday night at 11 PM ET/PT! #shamlessplug), and, like, not to brag or anything, but it's an AMAZING show. The 30-minute episodes feature all the behind-the-scenes tour haps, including killer performances, boy probs, and everything in-between (a.k.a. very, very important fashion moments). Last night's "Animal On The Hunt" episode focused on K-Money's search for the perfect bearded boy, but we couldn't help but focus on something else—Ke$ha wearing an American flag zip-up onesie while boarding a plane.
