As Lady Gaga continues to promote her Fame fragrance all across the globe, she also continues to take this whole dress-like-the-perfume-bottle-and-wear-strictly-black-and-gold aesthetic VERY. SERIOUSLY. Yesterday when Mother Monster was at a launch event in London, she wore—you guessed it—only black and gold, but sported THE most insane accessories we have ever seen. And we're not exaggerating here—she wore a gold claw, people. A gold CLAW. After she stepped out of her incredibly ornate horse-drawn gold carriage (yes, that actually happened), we peeped her hands, and they were completely covered in gold adornments. We're talking jewels, chains, even a honey bee—the whole bit. I mean, just a couple months ago we were debating over whether wearing a talon on your fingertips was over the top and then, well, this happens. *shrugs* Gaga has officially put us in our place.
Donatella Versace and Lady Gaga at Palazzo Versace in Milan, Italy, on Oct. 1.

Aaaaand Lady Gaga's "love affair" with Donatella Versace continues! Last year Mother Monster admitted she was "obsessed" with the brand, and Donatella let her do the unthinkable—dig through the Versace archives for the first time since before Gianni passed. Now it seems the twosome are still closer than ever. Just yesterday, they were spotted at Palazzo Versace looking eerily alike—Donatella wore a skin-tight, all black frock with her infamous platinum blonde hair, and Gaga sported a matching blonde wig to celebrate her designer BFF. Mother Monster also wore a white, gold and silver studded Versace number (of course!) with her fresh 'do paired with fire engine red nails. Yowza!
Rihanna and Selena Gomez both wear camouflage.

Camouflage is trending right now in a big way, and who better than two of our MTV Style patron saints, Rihanna and Selena Gomez, to show us how to do it well. Truth, we've seen it for months from the army jackets of our favorite bloggers to Katy Perry's stage ensembles, but when two pop stars wear it boldly and in different iterations in the same 24-hour span, you know you're riding the absolute crest of the camo wave. Devil's advocates though we are, it's time to see which version you prefer: Rihanna's hypebeast printed pants or Selena's extra layer overshirt?

Let's all give Christina Aguilera a round of applause for giving us THE best way to cruise into the weekend. After tons of hints, Tweets, and Facebook sneak peeks, she's dropped her music video for "Your Body" today, and good news- it's basically just as epic as we'd all been secretly hoping. There's no question the track is a guaranteed dance party, and our girl has turned out a major video to match, complete with about a ZILLION costume changes and 7 different beauty looks! Between the retro curls, the braids and the rainbow weave, they're too good NOT to break down, one by one..so let's get started!
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)!
