As Lady Gaga continues to promote her Viva Glam campaign, which donates all proceeds of her products to the MAC AIDS fund (three years and counting!), MAC Cosmetics keeps slowwwllly releasing behind-the-scenes videos from her 2011 photo shoot. The latest clip features Mother Monster getting all dolled up in a VERY Dragon Ball Z sleek beehive platinum 'do with barely there eyebrows and super heavy black cat-eye makeup. While sitting on a couch in RIDIC patent leather lace-up stiletto platforms paired with an exposed zipper sleeveless mock turtleneck two-piece ensemble, Lady Gaga dishes on her Little Monsters, saying, "I love when I see fans with makeup on at the show. They're so good at it, too. I see looks and I think, 'I'm going to steal that from you. I'm gonna do that.'" Aw, who knew that Gaga found beauty inspiration in her fans? ADORBS.

NEWSFLASH: It's getting cold. Not freezing, but slightly chilly—or as we at MTV Style like to call it, "tights weather." And you know what? We couldn't be happier! Tights not only keep your gams warm, but it's another excuse to add more cuteness to your wardrobe. And yeah, yeah, black tights make your legs look long and lean, but sometimes we want to change it up, you know? Patterned tights are where it's at this fall, and we've already fallen in love with so many pairs, we don't know which to snatch up first! Check out some stylish bloggers who rocked the printed tights look in three super cute ways.
Snooki on Sept. 24, and a flip-flop from her collection.

Earlier this summer we got a TEENY sneak peek into Snooki's sandal collection by peeping her super Snookified hot pink sequin flip-flops (yes, the ones with pickles on them), and luckily, friends, those bad boys were just the WEE tip of the iceberg. The Jersey Shore star posted her entire sandal and flip-flop line on Facebook, and whewwww boy! There's a whole lotta goodies in store. While the collection hasn't actually hit stores or online yet, take a peek at all her looks below to see which pair you want to snatch up!
Chains, bows, and animal print? No surprises here! Snooki stocked up on ankle sandals in every color pattern possible—black chain-link gladiators with jaguar print on the inside, brown cheetah ankle cuff thongs, and girly canvas ankle-wrap bow sandals that come in zebra print or green and beige. We could see Snooks sporting these when she's feeling more au naturel and subdued in a work-casual ensemble.

Menswear has been TAKING OVER our lives as of late! We don't know about you guys, but we cannot stop buying button-up blouses and loafers—it's probably because the outfit options are limitless with menswear-inspired ensembles. You can dress them up or dress them down for any occasion, but one of our FAVE (and ballsy!) accessories to pair with any outfit is a bow tie. Large, small, floppy, bright, or subtle—it doesn't matter what kind of bow tie you decide to sport, it's all about how you wear it. We picked three bloggers who ooze so much coolness in their menswear outfits, and BOY, are we jealous!
Vanessa Hudgens a the "Iris" premiere in Hollywood on Sept. 25.

When we spotted Vanessa Hudgens glowing in her sultry yet stylish maxi dress, we knew we had to snap it up right this second! We can't even decide which part we like best—the bold green and beige print, the super plunging neckline, or the stunning silhouette from those butterfly sleeves. Luckily, we found it! For under $200, this beaut can be yours. But because this dress makes such a bold statement, we have a few key pieces of advice before snatching it up—keep it simple! Whether it's your hair, accessories, or makeup, take a huge cue from V-Hudge, who pulled back her waves into an effortless updo and painted her nails an au naturel soft beige color. For makeup, she stuck with her smoky eye staple and added a touch of bronzer and glossy lips. Her only jewelry is a long silver medallion necklace and tons of silver statement rings, which add an extra bit of boho flair to her look. But LADIES, be advised—a plunging neck that low can be dangerous. If you want to wear this to work, throw a tank on underneath so there are no accidents! (Sorry, we don't trust safety pins.)
Elle Fanning, Alexa Chung, and Dianna Agron at The Alexa Chung For Madewell Fall 2011 Collection launch on Sept. 21.
Remember when Alexa Chung modeled her Fall 2011 Madewell collection and we were all, "Awww, she looks ADORABLE! We want EVERYTHING when it comes out." Well, apparently a lot of other people felt the same way. When her collection hit the Madewell.com website yesterday, it crashed due to the high demand. While we're not surprised that people are clamoring for Alexa Chung's self-designed duds, today it seems that her items are ALREADY hitting eBay selling at double the retail price. Yowza! Luckily, we found some of our most beloved Madewell pieces (worn by some of our fave celebs!) that are all still available to purchase online. But HURRY!!! Seriously guys, this stuff won't last long.

If you need to adorable-ize (what? That's a word.) any outfit in a snap, turn to a Peter Pan collar. These rounded collars offer a touch of vintage girliness to any ensemble and are super simple to style with literally anything. You can pair them with sweaters, skirts, jumpers—nothing is off-limits! It was SO hard to pick only three looks that were our favorite, but we're sure you'll agree that their out-of-the-box styling will inspire you pick up something with a Peter Pan collar immediately after reading this.

This is it, y'all. We're done. Finished. Finito. Done-zo. New York Fashion Week is officially OVER. We don't even know what to do first—sob uncontrollably or take a really long nap, but either way we're sad because all the celebs are leaving! They are probably kickin' back sipping on some Prosecco in their private jets back to L.A. right now. (Totes not fair that the West Coast steals most of the celebs.) The only thing we have left to hold onto in the wake of their absence is our fond memories of their to-die-for ensembles. Just yesterday we spotted Alexa Chung and Pharrell Williams in casual cool outfits at the Proenza Schouler show. Alexa sported a blue floral dress with a long sleeve black shirt, pointy black bow shoes, black clutch, and skull pendant necklace. Pharrell wore his go-to white tee and cardigan paired with jeans and black boots (complete with a hand-painted Chanel logo and toes. Yes, TOES.). Chloe "Never Not Cute" Moretz look 'dorbs at the Calvin Klein show in a minimalist layered beige and gray chiffon dress, metallic snakeskin clutch, and white strappy sandals. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen oozed sophisticated chic in the front row at J. Mendel. Mary-Kate wore a head-to-toe-black blazer, maxi dress, and pointy heels ensemble, while Ashley went a little lighter in an oversized white button-up shirt, nude skirt, giant gold watch, and red pointy slingbacks. Siigggghhhh, we love everyone's outfits SO MUCH, and this is just the beginning! We've got tons more celebs at fashion week in our photo gallery below. Check it out!
Diesel Black Gold SS 2012.

Diesel Black Gold certainly knows how to make a statement, and this New York Fashion Week collection took it up a notch by adding bold pops of colorful metallics to its characteristic neutral beige palette—and I can't say I'm mad at it. Green, eggplant, and navy dominated the color spectrum, and this spring you can expect to see a lot of layering for those days when you're not sure if it's going to be 50 degrees or 80.
The overriding silhouettes are clean and structured, with exaggerated collars that harken back to the past, with the off-white color block swing cape + gold mini resembling a badass Jackie O with a dash of dystopian future. Many of the pieces are perfect for transitioning from a day to night look, as most looks included a light jacket. Also, COMPLETELY IN LOVE with the notion of pairing metallics on metallics. Due to the varied textures and the contrast of what's worn underneath...you too can do shine-on-shine without totally looking like an astronaut. In my opinion, TOO MUCH is just enough, and as you can see here, the silver top paired with the fitted purple crop pants is actually working.

(Click HERE for the uncensored version) The men's collection is the perfect introduction to metallics for dudes who maaaaaay not be totally comfortable rockin' reflective surfaces. It takes a certain kind of man to pull off the look, but here you see metallic leather pants paired with darker layers on top to even the still masculine look out. I'm also living for the three-piece suit look sans tie.
There is, however, one problem...and it's a HUGE problem...the footwear. Now, I've always trusted Diesel and I'll continue to trust them, BUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE TEVAS???!!!! In my opinion, there is never (NOR WILL THERE EVER BE) a reason to wear strapped sandals (even with sexy metallic accents) unless you're a middle schooler at summer camp or an adult doing something nature-related, about which I can't even speak to specifics because...no.

Sometimes we think to ourselves, "Could Jeremy Scott be any more awesome?" and the answer is always: No, no, andddd no. Just when we become obsessed with one collection the L.A.-based designer has done, he's always releasing another to-die-for collab that we can't WAIT to get our hands on! From his Adidas x Jeremy Scott collab to his eye-candy-filled NYFW Fall 2011 runway show, it's quite obvious Mr. Scott has a flare for fashion-y fun that we want to smother ourselves in 24/7. His latest creation is five new jealousy-inducing watches for Swatch, which he tweeted about last night! He released his first collection with the Swiss watch brand earlier this year, but this time (heh) he's got even more ridiculous antics up his sleeve (sorry, the watch puns are just TOO easy)—AND Jeremy models the arm candy himself! (On a super-duper BUFF arm, might we add. #getit)
