• 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)!
Adam Lambert at Falguni & Shane Peacock, The Blonds, and hanging around the Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 11.

Sure, we've seen TONS of celebs at fashion week sporting their finest designer duds all over Lincoln Center, but we hadn't seen anyone switch up their ensemble more than once a day until *drum roll* Mr. Adam Lambert. Yesterday he changed outfits not once, not twice, but THREE times within the daylight hours, and for that, we need to bow down, y'all. He started off his Tuesday wearing a distressed gray suit jacket paired with a black button-up shirt and brocade pants. He accessorized with spiky black boots, circle sunglasses (that he wore in his suit pocket), stacked rings, and silver earrings. His beauty game was on lock (per usual) with his sleek and styled silvery hair paired with dark brows, a bit of mascara, and black nail polish. Me-ow!
Sammi Giancola and a look from her fitness collection at New York Fashion Week on Sept. 10.

These days it seems like ALL the Jersey Shore girls have been inching their way into the fashion world—JWOWW launched her Filthy Couture line back in 2010, Snooki has been KILLIN' it in the accessories department (sunglasses, flip-flops, slippers—you name it!), and now Sammi is finally making her stylish debut. The Jersey Shore girl launched her own fitness line (called The Sammi Sweetheart Collection) in conjunction with SXE Fitness at New York Fashion Week yesterday, and we were there to watch it all go down from the front row.
Rihanna performing in Jeremy Scott's M16 sunglasses on the VMAs.
What began as a typical performance flourish quickly turned into big time fashion drama when Rihanna took to the stage at the 2012 VMAs wearing a one of a kind sample of Jeremy Scott's Spring/Summer 2013 M16 sunglasses, but left without them, having tossed them into the crowd. The designer, who is showing his collection, inspired by the middle east and called "Arab Spring," at New York Fashion Week this Wednesday, took to twitter, confirming that "YES THOSE WERE [his] 24K GOLD M16 SHADES THAT RIHANNA WORE TO OPEN THE VMAs," and then imploring fans for their return by saying, " IF UR DA1 WHO CAUGHT EM PLZ GIVE EM BACK !"

OK, you know how you suspect that Alicia Keys’s IRL voice would be bonkers because, um, hi, it’s Alicia Keys? Well, I got to witness her rehearsal and I can confirm with solemn conviction and super-bugged eyes that GIRL ON FIRE. Seriously. I’d seen Ms. Keys perform at various events but there’s something about the absence of an entire cheering audience that makes her voice fill a room. Mind you, the room in question is the monstrous Staples Center, so this is no small task. Wearing speckled sunglasses, a rope chain flooded with small gems, with slicked back hair and a black tank, Alicia pounded on the keyboard with stunning aplomb that showcased a spectacular gun show. As in, HAVE YOU SEEN HER ARMS LATELY? They are seriously sculpted.

Full disclosure: we're total commitment-phobes. And no, we're not talking about relationships. Instead, we're feeling some serious indecision toward our closets- and more specifically, our skirts. Short, long, mini, maxi...we just CAN'T make up our minds. But luckily we don't have to! Designers are reaching some easy middle ground with the new shipment of midi skirts hitting stores and the runway, just in time for the cooler weather. With a cut that skims the calf, these breezy bottoms are just as flattering as they are versatile. So if you're not fully ready to go long or short (or just want to switch it up a bit), these midis are the perfect medium. Get proof of all the zillions of ways to rock them from our top bloggers below!
A still from Psy's "Gangnam Style" music video.

If you've never heard of "Gangnam Style," the K-Pop video by the artist PSY (pronounced like the first syllable of 'psycho' not spelled out like, 'pee ess why') that's DOMINATED Youtube with 74 million views and is currently sitting pretty atop the iTunes charts, you should seriously reconsider your priorities (helpful hint: stop reading so many books! JKJKJK). Anyway, it's a great, noisy, catchy song that features a fun, giddyup dance sequence that's as easily mimicked as the Dougie or the Chicken Noodle Soup. Just go watch it and then read this thing in the Atlantic about its "subversive" themes that soooooorta treats the prospect of a pop song containing a meaningful social message as if Maru the box-jumping cat solved cold fusion. But I digress...
Long story short, there's a lot going on in this video that everyone from CNN to Gawker has covered regarding this "underground rapper" < -- (LOL meanwhile, this is PSY's 6th studio album) so all I want to talk about is the FASHION. Especially since "Gangnam Style" refers to a tiny neighborhood in Korea that prides itself on its bougie boutiques and pretty people. Obviously dude is label mates with 2NE1 and Big Bang on YG because he is DECKED OUT. It's also no surprise that Justin Bieber's team is interested in this middle-aged, South Korean superstar because MAN would those two look cute together. I smell a duet! (...And it smells like kimchi etc etc...)
Ke$ha in West Hollywood on Aug. 28.

Ke$ha, girl, is that you? It feels like we haven't spotted the pop singer out and about in ages, and we barely even recognized her in West Hollywood yesterday! She debuted a freshly-dyed platinum blonde 'do and shorter waves paired with bright red lipstick and aviator sunglasses. We're used to seeing her sun-kissed streaks mixed in with shades of brown and gold, but she went all-out Marilyn Monroe with her new white-blonde color. Also, it looks like her Skrillex-inspired haircut is beginning to grow out into a girlier, tousled 'do. We ain't mad at that!
Sleigh Bells' "End Of The Line" video.

For about four minutes this morning we forgot it was Monday. That's because Sleigh Bells decided to drop the video for their new single "End Of The Line" upon the world, and we got to briefly stop what we were doing in favor of a mellowed-out dance party (highly recommended!). Now that that's over with, though, it's back to business- otherwise known as breaking down each and every one of Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller's ridiculously awesome outfits in the clip. After watching the video an embarassing number of times already, we've spotted a couple of cases of sartorial deja-vu (Sleigh Bells signatures like Ray Ban wayfayer sunglasses, studded jackets, and sick nail art). But leave it to Derek and Alexis to shake things up this time with gorgeous scenery, cinematic wide shots, and surprisingly moody vibe.
