Sometimes the coolest part about the Movie Awards is seeing some of our favorite MTV stars get all glammed up on the red carpet. The ladies from Awkward brought out their fashion A-game in short, springy frocks that we totally want to steal this season. Molly Tarlov sported a killer pale pink dress with black floral print and structured cap sleeves. She accessorized with pink and blue pumps and a super cute bow ring. She threw her hair up in a messy 'do and finished the look with a soft smoky eye, pink cheeks, color-blocked nails and a light pink pout. Jillian Rose Reed looked bright and bold in a cut-out white and blue Charlotte Ronson dress with white striped L.A.M.B. peep toe heels, blue Neil Lane drop earrings and a stone cuff. She sported her signature red waves to one side with a similar smoky-eye-and-pink-lip look.

Gwen Stefani in No Doubt's "Settle Down" video.

Considering it's been more than a decade since No Doubt's last studio album, did you really think Gwen Stefani and the rest of the So Cal crew would come back quietly? No way. The band took a hiatus after 2001's Rock Steady, and now these guys are back for good with their new single "Settle Down." They dropped the explosive track upon the world yesterday, and we've had the summer anthem on repeat ever since. But this morning we've found a whole new reason to obsess, since they've just released the song's equally awesome video. Directed by longtime collaborator Sophie Muller, the video stars the band as truck drivers heading to meet up after 10 years. It's a reunion, dance party and a fashion show, all crammed into one exhilarating 6-minute clip. Get the deets (plus the story behind Gwen's epic embellished pants) below!

You've probably seen the clothes, the hair, and the makeup from all the fall 2012 NYFW shows by now, but have you seen the nails? Even if you were front row, it'd be hard to spot nail art on the fierce fast-paced models. Luckily, we found beautiful, up-close shots of the best tips from backstage, on Twitter, and everywhere in between. Check out the hottest fashion week nail designs below, and don't blame us if you get inspired to purchase some new polish immediately after reading this.

The fall season didn't stop designers from sending neon-tipped models down the runway. We spotted so many fun and bright rainbow-colored nail designs that took us straight back to the '90s raver days, and we especially loved the hand-done swirl design at Nicole Miller! The Blonds showcased a glittery hodgepodge of hot pink, blue and white nails with tiny tattoo designs, and Jeremy Scott went for colorful 3D nail stickers that remind us of Candy Buttons. Mmmmm.

When it comes to Gwen Stefani's super fun fashion line, L.A.M.B., we're all over any and all of it, but when you add Noir Jewelry into the mix, we're positively exploding with gold-studded, accessory-obsessed joy. Noir's Leeora Catalan has accessorized the last two L.A.M.B. fashion week presentations, and she and Stefani decided to collaborate on an entire collection for spring/summer 2012. Inspired by India and punk, there are tribal-style drop necklaces, gold bracelets interwoven with black cords, studded rings, and dangling pyramid earrings among many other covetable pieces that we can't WAIT to add to our spring wardrobe. In fact, there's so much we want in this collection that we'd like to go ahead and take it ALL.

Holiday gift-giving season is a whole different beast of anxiety-making for me. It's not that I leer at the thought of swiping my card for the sake of others. In fact, the exact opposite is true. And there's such heart-palpitating fulfillment that comes, for me, with finding the perfect gift for someone that I almost wish it came around more often. That is... Except for the bank account gobbling Pandora's box it opens as I up my visitation to brick and mortars and ecommerce sites, like, eleven-fold. You see, coupled with a job in which I stare and maaaarinate on clothes and jewelry and makeup all day, 'tis the season that I wake up in a cold sweat every night from my quaking bloodlust for so many OBJECTS. And nothing in this world can thwart my gifting focus quite like a truly incredible pair of shoes. This week, Khloe Kardashian, Elle Fanning, and Gwen Stefani stepped out in the most deliciously covetable footwear, and there may or may not have been a casualty on my holiday shopping list as a result (sorry, Mom).

Looks from the L.A.M.B. Spring 2012 presentation.

Incredibly long lines weaved through the Lincoln Center filled with die-hard Gwen Stefani fans (we were one of them, obvs) patiently awaiting a glimpse at her Spring 2012 L.A.M.B. collection. When we finally made it inside, we were greeted with around 15 looks that reminded us of Gwen's signature style—lots of loud prints, comfy jumpsuits, and super-short minis (but sadly Ms. Stefani herself wasn't there). Gwen is literally the QUEEN of making one-piece ensembles look fabulous, so it's no surprise she created a few springy streetwear-inspired options for the coming season. She plastered cargo pockets on the front and sides of a pair of drop crotch printed jumpsuits, giving them a chic military vibe. She finished the look with a few gold chains and KILLER platform shoes (don't worry, we'll get to those bad boys later!). Gwen also used a bold black and white tribal print throughout a few of her pieces—a flouncy miniskirt (seen above), a collared shift dress, and a one-shouldered maxi dress (with zipper detail around the arm openings!). And as, um, self-declared leopard print addicts, we immediately fell in love with her fiery print tank and matching harem pants ensemble. We can't think of anywhere we WOULDN'T wear this outfit. MEOW.

There's no doubt that Donatella Versace is a fashion legend. And far be it for us to detract from her enormous success in steering the house of Versace given her brother Gianni's untimely death in the summer of 1997, (Oh. God. Can we actually take a moment because every time I think of Gianni Versace and Andrew Cunanan, I feel insane. Do you remember this INTENSE Time magazine cover? If you haven't already, you should read the entire article here. It is amazing. And how much do we love that there's no paywall?) but we're a little *crooked eyebrows* on some of these notions that she raises in her recent interview with Reuters. The "nut" is that while she's BFFs with musicians like Elton John and Sting and how celebs like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift and her Madgesty dons her frocks, she's totally unconvinced that a celebrity is capable of making truly creative fashion. She implies that the type of crazy-pants life that a celebrity leads makes it unlikely that they'd find true inspiration, but ultimately it's this quote that ruffles feathers.

"I think it is more a question of marketing. Some of these collections are for cheaper, mass market fashion. I don't think that creativity is there."

Hold. The. Phone. Since when was mass market fashion and creativity completely mutually exclusive? Also, what about when a very tony designer DEIGNS to make a wide-release capsule collection? Is that designer's creativity suddenly sapped entirely from the fiscal parameters of unit cost? Also, what is this about famous people leading such anthropologically specific lives that they can't design clothes? Is there nothing insular and wonky about the lives of couturiers? People are entitled to their opinions and artists will often take a controversial or unpopular stance but D.V. relax on the bold name skewering, especially when they're killing it.

Love, Angel, Music, Baby... LAMB needs little introduction and Gwen Stefani's clothing line that launched in 2004 has always exemplified not only Gwen's FLAWLESS personal style (the shoes are reliably incredible) but is enormously fun, fresh and consistently welcomed at Fashion Week.

By now we've all heard the projected $1 billion in sales that the Jessica Simpson Collection is slated to haul in this year and while Donatella will likely give the selection the side eye, there's something to be said for Jessica DOMINATING the retail scene so handily. And though the platform heels and flirty dresses as well as the sportswear line that will be added this year (with expectations to yield somewhere between $100-$200 million in retail sale), aren't rocket surgery aesthetically speaking, shopper fealty behind the JS empire lies in her attention to detail. The clothes are routinely described in reviews as flattering, and the shoes are vaunted for being comfortable, DESPITE sporting ginormous heels.

JT and his childhood buddy Trace launched William Rast in 2005. Named after their maternal grandfathers (how Proenza Schouler-ish), William Rast is predominantly known for their denim that enjoys the creative direction of none other than Johan Lindeberg of J.Lindeberg. And whether fashion designers like it or not, the young clothing line was enough to snag Justin Timberlake a spot on the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

Routinely labeled as the superlative in stylish stars with constant rumors circulating that they've quit acting altogether to focus on fashion, the Olsen sisters' sartorial credibility is relatively unflappable. In both The Row and Elizabeth & James (and now, the partners are undeniably creative (as subjective as something like "style" may be), and these guys have been famous for the majority of their lives.

• British singer/songwriter-turned-celebrity clothing label backer Liam Gallagher recently said in an interview with Spin magazine that the difference between his recently launched label, Pretty Green, and Jay-Z's Rocawear is that the wearers of his threads won't get arrested.

• Unlike many designers who want to change the world (or something else equally dramatic) with their clothing lines, Gwen Stefani admitted in a recent CNN interview that she launched L.A.M.B. for her own personal gratification. Nothing more. Nothing less. {People StyleWatch}

• That orange/pink/black striped Prada dress (you know the one) strikes again! This time, Zooey Deschanel appears on the May cover of Canadian fashion magazine Flare wearing the sheath with red lips and nails. {Coco Perez}

• Sooooooo, it was Anna Wintour who personally invited a green-haired Nicki Minaj to perform at the Runway to Green Vogue charity event on Tuesday night. Hmmmm...could this be a hint of a future Vogue cover for Ms. Nicki-Nicki? T'would be bonkers. {Coco Perez}

• It's shocking how effortlessly gorge L.A.M.B. designer Gwen Stefani looks on the April cover of Elle UK, considering she's hanging on to a ledge for dear life (#watchyournailsgirl). Oh, but check the nOir diamond pave dinosaur bone bracelet she's wearing. Cute, huh? {Coco Perez}

• Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson, and NOW Kate Winslet (on the cover of Vogue UK)! What's up with all these British celebs chopping their hair and dying it platinum? Whatever...we like it. {Us magazine}

• If we were to spend $300 on a pedicure, we'd prefer it to be made of gold, but maybe (just maybe) we'd settle for snakeskin. {Allure}

• On Thursday, Anna Sui will be debuting a line of flirty print dresses on The Outnet, a shopping site that offers 70 percent off designer duds. Word? Word. {SheFinds}

• More images of the Dolce & Gabbana wardrobe that Kylie Minogue is wearing during her "Les Folies" tour have hit the wires. There are superhero robes, bad-A boots, and one AH-MAZING gold corset. {InStyle}

• Michael Kors' 30-year career was honored on Monday in Paris. And what a fete it was--Mary J. Blige sang in French while wearing a Michael Kors catsuit. See, a REAL celebration.{NY Times}

Yesterday was the last day of New York Fashion Week (sniff-sniff), and it ended with a bang...and poodles. Check out our favorite looks below.

L.A.M.B.: The models at L.A.M.B.'s fall fashion show had serious attitudes. But, it was all part of the show, which featured military-inspired jackets and trousers, Rasta-influenced looks, and glamorous/billowy gowns.

NAEEM KHAN: Naeem Khan's collection was full of glittering gowns and embellished minis—all the ingredients for a perfect red carpet look.

RALPH LAUREN: Inspired by Asian culture and fashion, Ralph Lauren infused fine silks, bright embroideries, regal velvet, and super-slim silhouettes into his fall collection.

ISAAC MIZRAHI: If there's one thing Isaac Mizrahi's fashion shows are not, it is boring. In a nod to the 1950s sock-hop, each model—in A-line coats, tea dresses, and faille skirts—wore a poodle-esque pouf atop her head. Oh, and real poodles, whose hair was dyed in candy shades, walked the runway, too.

CALVIN KLEIN: Minimalist chic was the name of the game at Calvin Klein's fall fashion show, with models parading out in muted hues, rich fabrics, and looser silhouettes.

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