Forget fashion week, it was Shark Week at The Blonds where the high-camp, high-glamour from the tow-haired duo, Phillipe and David Blond, took a turn for the aquatic. The front row was, as always, a spectacle with Paris Hilton, Adam Lambert and Rico the Zombie Boy (clad in last season’s motorcycle ensemble) chatting amicably and posing for photos. So. Much. FACE.

Lady Gaga being tattooed last night at her gala for Fame.
Photo: Little Monsters

Yesterday at around 7 PM, we watched Lady Gaga pull up to the Guggenheim Museum atop her convertible Rolls Royce, staring stoically at the crowd of adoring fans and ravenous photographers. We were all there for her masquerade gala, at which the final version of Steven Klein's short film about her debut fragrance, Fame, would be shown and word had it that Gaga would do something, although whether she would perform was still unknown. As she quickly rushed past the crush of flashbulbs and the shouts of "Gaga!" we caught a look at her gorgeous velvet Prabul Gurung gown, and were told that "that will be the last time you see her tonight." Inside the museum, party-goers were greeted by a sleeping Gaga inside of her perfume's bottle, and were permitted, through a hole in the bottle, to reach inside and touch her. She later emerged, revealing her half-shaved head (which was done in honor of Terry Richardson's mother, who lost her life to cancer recently). Mama monster then proceeded to have said shaved head TATTOOED in front of the awestruck crowd. See a photo of the tattoo after the jump!

We came, we saw, we conquered New York Fashion Week! While our Fashion (yes, with a capital F) high is still going strong, this means it's THE perfect time to round up some of our favorite trends fresh from the runways. We all know that the fashion world is a pendulum, meaning the popular looks one year will probably resurface a few seasons later. Although what's old may be new again, expect some totally modern twists for Spring 2013. Case in point: metallics. These guys probably already take up prime real estate in your closet, which is good news- because they're here to stay. Chalk it up the the Olympics or the classic American obsession with extravagance, but designers like Jeremy Scott, Rodarte, Rachel Zoe and more have added their own edge to traditional golden, silver, and bronze this season with sequins, chain links, and statement solid pieces. Yep, the Gilded Age is officially back!

OK, so Diane Von Furstenberg, Jill Stuart, and Falguni & Shane Peacock took a relatively classic approach to the trend with allover sequins and sparkles. But before you roll your eyes and yawn, hold up! This trio added their own signature touches, whether it's muted metallics like DVF, a disco ball gown from Jill Stuart, or a rad futuristic number from Falguni. They're bold, bright. and sparkle up a storm. In other words, these definintely aren't your grandmother's party dresses.

Betsey Johnson

Sure, it was crimped hair and cat's eyes galore backstage at Betsey Johnson but there were also heaps of photographers and cameramen scrabbling for a shot of the designer who was celebrating her 70th birthday. Betsey commemorated this birthday with a 90-outfit career retrospective during New York's fashion week even amidst financial woes that resulted in the company filing for bankruptcy earlier this year.

There was nary a somber tone during the night at Espace on Manhattan's westside, that featured a musical performance from longtime Betsey bestie Cyndi Lauper and the miniature bottles of bubbly were complemented by the effervescence of a nostalgia-tinged soundtrack from our DJ for the evening—Sky Ferreira.

Jennifer Lawrence is an ethereal beauty on the cover of W.

We've been following Jennifer Lawrence's career since before her days at Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. She's beautiful, relatable, and not to mention an amazing actress (have you seen Winter's Bone? If not, you should), and it's been amazing to see her go from doing tiny indie movies to taking over the world in one of the biggest movie series, well, ever. She's absolutely stunning on the cover of W magazine's October issue in which she wears every designer under the sun, channeling her more avian side in peacock feathers and even, in some cases, actual avians. On the cover the actress is wearing a Calvin Klein collection feather and organza dress that just screams black swan in the best way.

Gerlan Jeans, Minnie Mouse

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)!

Karlie Kloss at The Novak Djokovic Foundation Inaugural Dinner.

What with baking her signature cookies, prepping for her new House of Style gig, and ya know, absolutely killing it on the runway, Karlie Kloss undoubtedly has crammed enough activities into Fashion Week to make ANYONE exhausted. But while we're personally counting down the minutes til our much-needed post-NYFW nap, for Karlie it's a different story. Last night the supermodel added another activity into her packed agenda, lending her name to a seriously good cause. She attended a dinner for The Novak Djokovic Foundation, an organization established by tennis star Novak Djokovic that helps underprivileged children in his home country of Serbia. Karlie proved her special guest status for the eve in an intricately embellished v-neck gown from Carolina Herrera, simple black pumps, and black envelope clutch. With swept up hair and natural makeup (save for a swipe of liner), this is effortless perfection if we ever saw it. Who says fashion has to be dramatic?! She wasn't the only one working a sleek, relatively minimal look last night. Theophilus London proved you could look white-hot even AFTER Labor Day in crisp, clean separates.

High fashion and punk rock might seem like they're from opposite ends of the style universe (after all, just try and picture Anna Wintour with a mohawk...crazy, right?!). But hold on to your biker jacket-- because the two are about to collide in what's guaranteed to be an epic explosion of music and clothing. Ripped tops, safety pins, and black, black, and MORE black are prepping to invade New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art this spring with the new exhibit “Punk: Chaos to Couture.” The upcoming show is the latest of the Costume Institute's amazing eye-boggling exhibitions, hot on the heel's of this year's unforgettable "Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations." But whereas 2012 was all about the overarching similarities between quirky designers Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, expect next year to be a liiiittle bit different. And by different, we mean LOUD. Kicking off with the origins of movement and punk's influence on fashion over the past 30 years, prepare for a whirlwind trip hitting hotspots like London, New York, and spotlighting all the cool kids in between.

New York Fashion Week Joe Nick Jonas

You guyyysss, New York Fashion Week is almost over. :( This means we won't get to spot some of our favorite celebs at shows from mere seats away or get to see them mingling with the commoners at presentations. HRMPH. While we're sad to see it end, we have to admit that yesterday's shows were certainly star-studded! Florence Welch showed off her typically stylish self at Proenza Schouler's spring 2013 show. She wore a fall 2012 chinoiserie-style wrap jacket and skirt ensemble paired with tie platform booties, a black clutch, and tons of stacked gold rings. She kept her makeup minimal, and let her GORGE hair color do all the talking.

ALL RISE from the Fashion Week haze!! In this week's Related Links, the real and imaginary begin to mingle in the world of fashion. Check out these street-style snapshots you'll have to see to believe.

Optical Illusion
{via The Cut}
In one, overall ensemble, style blogger Susie Bubble seamlessly pairs a t-shirt and baggy Chanel jean shorts (which, alone, prompt a huge *asdklajd?!?!?*). We also LOVE how she channels our beloved Italian video game hero. Yes, the one who drives the famous Kart.

Room With A View
{via Fashionologie}
This girl snatched a great two-for-one deal: bodycon dress and exquisite painting. Hello, wearable art! We don’t always have teatime on someone’s midriff, but when we do, we hope it looks as elegant as THIS.

Cord Phone Comeback
{via Harper's Bazaar}
“Hands-free” is not a priority for House of Style host AND model-of-the-moment, Karlie Kloss. Maybe she's going to pillow talk on the catwalk?!

Lady Liberty
{via Fashionista}
Check out style blogger Peony Lim's draping denim number and spiked headband, tilted to fit like a crown. Where have we seen this Roman goddess look before? Ah YES, from sea to fabulously shining sea.

Hannibal Lecter Purse
{via Racked National}
High fashion meets horror film: is this purse a badass ode to one of the top movie villains of all time? Or just a little creepy?

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