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!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Glamour.

We know it's silly (and maybe a little sad) but we really do get a little butterfly-ified when we gaze upon Joseph Gordon-Levitt's undeniable punim. He's the kind of guy you would imagine would make you laugh, never do you wrong, and would totally impress your mom at family holidays, all the while being super hot to boot. He also knows how to wear the crap out of some clothes. Three piece suits, fall layers, and basic t-shirts: no sartorial staple phases JGL, oh no, and now, in the October issue of Glamour, he's proving himself once again. The spread does double duty, as a straight-up interview in the magazine and as a cute feature on date night dressing online, but both are pure cuteness. Let's look at the online spread for now. So it's supposed to be about the girl, how you can wear a Marni cape on a date or a cozy sweater and silk skirt (both by Oscar De La Renta), and these are definitely two fall looks we can seriously get behind, but we're also really feeling Joe picking us up for our date in an oxblood Maison Martin Margiela suit and crisp white Thom Browne shirt, unbuttoned just so. I mean, what would you even do? You would die of happiness, that's what. See more of JGL's sweep you off your feet looks after the jump.

There was a lot of speculation after that whole Rupert Sanders thing that Kristen Stewart may have been dropped from her illustrious job as face of the Balenciaga fragrance. Well, rest easy, y'all, because K.Stew's Florabotanica campaign is definitely still a GO! Both the On The Road actress and Balenciaga's creative director Nicolas Ghesquière take time in this behind-the-scenes video to talk about the Florabotanica fragrance, the mood behind the campaign, and elaborate on the choice of Kristen as the face of the perfume.
The cover art for Carly Rae Jepsen's album 'Kiss.'

"Call Me Maybe" is one thing, but are you ready for an ENTIRE album stocked with so catchy-it-kind-of-hurts tracks? Um, duh. Better start practicing your karaoke skills, because Carly Rae Jepsen's record Kiss officially drops today in the U.S. and features 15 more pop anthems guaranteed to be our (not so) guilty pleasure. She's already shown her '80s love in her newest single "This Kiss," and now the singer has yet another homage to the era up her sleeve...this time, with her cover art fashion. We're getting a serious Flashdance-meets-Dirty Dancing kind of vibe with the splashy "Carly Rae Jepsen" font and pink background, but her outfit REALLY seals the deal. From the oversized tee (sleeves rolled, natch), bow belt, and blue miniskirt, it's clear somebody's been doing her style research. And further proof that the '80s are back: you can recreate the ENTIRE ensemble wearing- what else?!- American Apparel. See how to channel your own Jennifer Grey after the jump!
Lana Del Rey at the Mulberry Spring/Summer 2013 show during London Fashion Week on Sept. 18 and at the 'GQ' Men of the Year Awards Sept. 4.

Our retro girl has gone modern! Lana Del Rey—a.k.a. the queen of '60s-inspired sky-high bouffants and liquid cat liner—has traded in her traditional deep-parted old Hollywood waves for a totally sleek and straight 'do. We barely recognized the singer (and current face of H&M!) at the London Fashion Week Mulberry spring/summer 2013 show today thanks to her super slick, freshly-dyed black strands. In fact, she wasn't even sporting her signature eye makeup OR a bold lip. *gasp* What happened to her "gangster Nancy Sinatra" vintage style?
Her sister Dakota may have starred in Marc Jacobs' "Oh Lola" ads last year, but now it's the YOUNGER Fanning, Elle, who's stealing the spotlight with a brand new perfume campaign of her own. The 14-year-old actress is the latest face of "Lolita Lempicka," repping the French beauty brand's classic fragrance. (Pause for a moment to contemplate just HOW similar these two perfume names are...coincidence?! We think not.) With her porcelain complexion, angelic features, and long golden hair, it's no surprise Elle's Virgin Suicides-esque good looks have seriously enchanted the fashion world...ahem, despite the fact that she's not even old enough to have a driver's license yet! Ever since her quirky-cool Marc by Marc Jacobs ads from last year, we've been anxiously waiting to see which big name brand would snatch Elle up next. Now that we've watched the gorgeously haunting fragrance film for "Lolita Lempicka," let's just say some things really are worth waiting for.

HOMG! It's a fortuitous day when in a single event boy bands and international Fashion Week collide before our eyes. Enter One Direction's Harry Styles at London Fashion Week and the (potentially fatal) brain explosion that has become our Tuesday afternoon. The 1D dude showed up at yesterday's Burberry Prorsum Spring 2013 show, making his front row debut and fueling the swirling rumors that he's dating Burberry face Cara Delevingne.
Lea Michele is the new face of L'Oreal beauty.
It's just been confirmed that Glee star Lea Michele is the new face of L'Oreal Paris, joining the likes of Beyonce and Gwen Stefani, who have also been spokeswomen for the brand. In a statement to People magazine, Lea said that she is "overjoyed" to be working with the company, which is the largest beauty company in the world. Pretty major, if you ask us. She went on to say that she is not only a fan of L'Oreal because of their products, but also because of their message, "I’m so thankful to be a part of a television show that promotes inner beauty and self-worth," Lea said, referring to her starring role on the groundbreaking Glee, "now to be a part of this amazing family [L'Oreal] that expresses the same amazing message is such an honor.”

Here's the thing about Elizabeth Olsen. The actress (and younger sis of MK&A) quite literally has fashion in her blood, whether she's working it in her sisters' labels or in goods from Mulberry, Chanel, or Pucci. But it's a true testament to her effortless, casual style that Lizzy looks just as awesome in accessible (read: affordable) basics as she does in these red carpet looks. Along with gracing the cover of ASOS magazine, this is the girl who makes denim cutoffs, ratty t-shirts and head scarves look stylish, after all. So it shouldn't come as TOO much of a surprise, then, that the 23-year-old is totally gorgeous at the New York premiere of her new flick Liberal Arts... NOT decked out in designer, but instead wearing two of our favorite fast fashion labels. She looks ladylike in a leather pencil skirt from ASOS paired with a white Topshop blazer and classic strappy sandals. Who knew? It IS possible to score a movie premiere outfit for less than $300.
Lady Gaga wears Vivienne Westwood's "Climate Revolution" shirt one day after its London Fashion Week runway debut.

It was Lady Gaga's surprise walk for Philip Treacy's London Fashion Week show that had us all bracing ourselves, gripping the arms of our desk chairs in near-disbelief as she sported not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR different outfits. Now, we're slack-jawed and slow-clapping for the break-neck speed with which she's taken Vivienne Westwood's "Climate Revolution" shirt from the runway to the street. In this case, that speed would be a cool 24 hours. *rubs eyes and triple takes at computer screen*
