BIG news today, y'all! The world's newest CoverGirl and reigning champion of lady badassery, P!nk, is confirmed to perform at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards! She joins English-Irish boy band One Direction and the incomparable Alicia Keys on the night's performance bill. Unlike the bright-eyed, bushy-tailed boys of 1D, this isn't P!nk's first time at the rodeo. She's performed on the Moonman's stage three times before, and each performance and its corresponding outfit has been more shocking than the last.

Nike x Liberty's New Sky High Dunk Trainers.

We've already officially named the sneaker wedge the IT shoe of the season, and clearly we're not the only ones obsessed. Hot on the heels (heh) of high fashion favorites like Isabel Marant, Marc Jacobs, and Y-3, some major athletic brands are getting in on the trend as well. Enter Nike's third Liberty of London collab, which just hit the internet. The collection is replete with the signature ditsy florals and Swoosh that we're used to seeing, but these kicks ALSO come with an extra couple of inches of height. The company has revamped the classic Nike Dunk style into a heeled shoe that's sleeker and sportier than the Marant or Marc versions, but just as stylish. Plus, an added bonus: the so-called "remixed" edition keeps many of the sporty Nike Dunk qualities, like the comfy lightweight sole and easy fit. These Dunk Sky Highs might not work on the basketball court, but you can bet they'll get you from point A to point B in record time. Can your Louboutins do that?!

Nikki Reed Ariel Winter Sophia Bush

Hey, we know it's hard to dress your best in August—the humidity is at its peak of grossness and it feels like you've worn all your light, breezy dresses to death, but Nikki Reed, Ariel Winter and Sophia Bush proved that they can still look hot (heh) even in the most sweat-inducing weather. Last night at InStyle's Summer Soiree, all three ladies took a glam approach to the typical summer dress. In fact, they looked SO garden party chic, we could barely handle it! Twilight star Nikki Reed sported a demure floral Jill Stuart frock with T-strap heels and a burgundy clutch. She kept her hair and makeup minimal with just a touch of sheer pink gloss on her lips and no-nonsense beachy waves.

Katy Perry for GHD.

Three things we're obsessed with: Katy Perry, Ellen Von Unwerth, and finding the perfect flat iron. All three in one place? Dreamy. We've always loved Katy Perry's campaign shots for hair tools giant ghd (which we've HEARD makes the best flat irons in all the land), which have previously been shot by the great David LaChappelle, but we have to say, this latest Ellen Von Unwerth-shot edition is far and away our fave. In previous Chappelle shoots the looks were heavily stylized, from mermaids to styles throughout the eras, to the roaring 20's, and although they stopped us in our tracks with their uber-glam beauty, the graceful, simple look of Von Unwerth's pictures has us really focused on what we're all here for anyway: Katy and the hair. Von Unwerth shoots the typically colorful singer in black and white, styled with a clean cat eye and porcelain skin, and Johnny Wujek tones down the glitter in exchange for a simple silk in one image, and a crystal embellished crew neck dress in the other (he HAD to have some sparkle somewhere, honestly). The hair in both images is flawless. From a retro loose look, featuring blunt, thick above the eyebrow bangs and a subtle wave, to a sleek, low side-ponytail.

Lady Gaga covers the September issue of 'VOGUE.'

FINALLY! Lady Gaga's been dropping hints about her new September VOGUE cover ever since we reported wayyy back in the summer that she was confirmed to grace the glossy. Now the wait is over...and let's just say it was totally worth it. She debuted the photos via Twitter last night, and they.are.amazing. Honestly, we weren't sure what to expect-would she work a similar cropped bob and severe makeup as her last VOGUE cameo? Would she channel her Bride alias like she did for L'Uomo Vogue? Turns out Mother Monster did a total 180, showing off her glam hourglass figure in a violet Marc Jacobs gown and sky-high blonde hair. Gaga's muse for her look? She said last night of the cover, "I'm totally channeling fozzibear," and also "Who else sees me channeling Ru Paul on the cover of VOGUE." Hey, if there's ANYONE who can turn a Muppett and a drag queen into a high fashion mashup, it's Gaga.

Jessie J

Along with the fact that we still can't get "Domino" out of our heads (hey, we're not mad...), there's another reason Jessie J. holds a special place in our hearts: her ridiculously cool sense of style. The girl can work a head-to-toe printed jumpsuit like it's NDB one day, then turn around and channel her inner flapper on the red carpet the next. It's almost like she doesn't even care what people think, which makes the wardrobe result THAT much cooler. Part of the credit for the U.K. pop star's amazing outfit choices goes to her longtime stylist, Karl Willett, who also dressed Jessie J. on her new "Laserlight" video. However, the twosome (who've worked together forever, we hear) have since parted ways, leaving the singer with a whole new look.

Classics by Buffalo

These are 12-inch tall platform shoes by Buffalo.

We have EYES. We've seen platforms before. From Nicki Minaj to Taylor Momsen to Kerli we've been witness to our fair share of high-rise kicks, but these Buffalo Classics certainly take the cake. With a 12-inch heel and 11-inch platform, these black flatform sneakers will make their wearer a full FOOT taller for the equally tall price of $599.95. While they're still shy of the Guinness World Record-breaking 16-inch stiletto heels that hold the title of World's Tallest, I think we can all agree that these are still some MONSTER shoes.

Alexa Chung Overalls

OK, we need to talk. Whenever we see Alexa Chung do anything we totally take note because, duh, she's a fashion "It" girl. She's always on the forefront of trends and trying new things and blahdy blahdy blah, but sometimes we're a wee bit skeptical of the next big thing she's trying to pull off. And lately, that means overalls—real, actual, TLC-style oversized overalls (See also: That House of Style segment on colored denim.) OK, maybe they're not that crazy, but still! We haven't seen these bad boys pop up since the '90s (well, if you don't count Miley Cyrus' denim jumpsuit thing from a few weeks ago), and we're kiiiind of not quite sure if we're ready for it to come back. In mid July, Alexa sported vintage-y denim dungarees with a statement necklace and black tank. She accessorized with ankle espadrille wedges, a snakeskin bag, and circle sunnies. We're sorta feeling this retro vibe, but these overalls are bordering on culottes territory, and yeah.... *shiver*

Jason Schwartzman and three of his Lookmatic "Uncleanord" styles.

Full disclosure: we've harbored a not-so-secret crush on Jason Schwartzman ever since his Rushmore days more than a decade ago. We know, we movie star time, which is kind of like dog years, that's practically forever. But thanks to flicks like Bored to Death, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom AND a side gig modeling for Band of Outsiders, our obsession is still in full-throttle mode, and now it's taken up a notch with his new design project. The actor has created a style of glasses for the online eyewear boutique Lookmatic, putting his adorably eccentric spin on classic vintage frames. Dubbed the "Uncleanord" after a pair of specs he received from his Uncle Leonard (get it?) when he was a kid, the revamped '50s-inspired shape comes in black, olive, and clear prescription styles as well as a sunglasses version.

Lana Del Rey smiles wide.

By now we're quite used to sad Lana Del Rey, sultry Lana Del Rey, and mysterious Lana Del Rey. Smiley Lana Del Rey, however, is a version we haven't seen quite as often, in editorials at least. The retro-cool singer usually sticks to pouty, scorned lover poses when she's under the high-fashion lens, but in her new editorial for Vogue Italia, shot by the legendary Ellen Von Unwerth, Lana takes up all of her usual poses while also cracking one of the sweetest smiles we've seen on the pop star yet. Yes, she still has her big hair, although it's been taken down a notch, and is clad in super luxe looks that are both pin-up sexy and classically glamorous, but there's a new quality to the character that Lana is playing in the photos.

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