Um, can we please take a moment and appreciate the gorgeousness that is the ankle wrap situation displayed here by Kat Graham, Amanda Seyfried, and Blake Lively? Hot daaaaaaamn, ladies! Well played. Let's break these stellar steppers down, shall we? Because these are not your average, run-of-the-mill shoe closures, and for that, we applaud you. Slowly. While plotting to steal your stuff. Kat's neon yellow and black polka-dotted Loriblu heels brought a bright burst of color, but it was the thick ankle cuff that really caught our eye. We also swooned over the hardware of Amanda's double-tied leather and wood Lanvin sky-high stilettos, while Blake stepped out in Christian Louboutin's golden-tassel adorned wrap sandals that managed to jockey for attention despite her glittery couture dress. We absolutely adore all of these ankle embellishments, but which closure do you covet most?

• What's Blake Lively's secret to landing huge fashion campaigns like this new one from Chanel? Chocolate ice cream and the Lion King soundtrack, says the Gossip Girl. Sweet! {The Cut}

Jean Paul Gaultier, Jessica Stam, and Roberto Cavalli have openly expressed that they don't believe the racist/anti-semitic allegations against fellow designer John Galliano. {Huffington Post}

• The "college dropout" may be headed back to school. Rumor has it that Kanye West has applied to study at the Central Saint Martins College in London toward a fashion-related master's degree. {Vulture}

• Here's something to keep you from twiddling your thumbs on a rainy day: step-by-step instructions to create a DIY Proenza Schouler bungee cord bracelet (pssst, if you were to buy the real thing, it'd set you back $150!). {Meet Me On the Catwalk}

eBay might as well be called eBiebs (good one!), because after auctioning locks of his hair for over $40,000, Justin Bieber is now using the retail site to hawk an autographed pair of worn purple Nike sneaks for charity. {Coco Perez}

• Who is this fashionista that got to style one of the Dolce & Gabbana windows in a Milan store, and then got to take home all of the garments she used? And, WHY can't we be her? Just sayin'. {Glamour}

• In the latest "what dress will princess-to-be Kate Middleton wear on her wedding day" news, the designer du jour is Alexander McQueen. This is one rumor we can see becoming reality. {NY Times}

• We (heart) Costco. Where else can you get a case of pigs-in-the-blanket and a wedding dress in the same aisle? {Styleite}

Lady Gaga on the Thierry Mugler runway in Paris on Mar. 2

Lady Gaga made her modeling debut (and played her new song "Government Hooker") at Thierry Mugler's F/W 2011 runway show in Paris. And while most models do a little turn at the end of the catwalk, Gaga started smoking a cigarette. Amazing.

• Remember when Jared Leto wore that oversize poncho-Snuggie thing? Yeah, well now he's sporting giant fringe shoulder pads. What will the 30 Seconds To Mars frontman wear next? Our guess: FEATHERS!

• Those Jersey Shore cast members were ALL OVER the place this week! Snooki rode a rocket, Sammi returned to the shore house, and JWOWW dressed like a Vegas showgirl.

• The Oscars went down with a BANG! We've got every gown that grazed the red carpet from that night (and ALL of Anne Hathaway's seven stage looks!).

• This week was the Biebs birthday! Not only did we celebrate Justin's supercute style, but we also looked at his transformation from the stoop (literally) to the stage. Oh, how he's grown!

• Kelly Osbourne, Lourdes Leon, and Madonna teamed up for the Material Girl photo shoot, and we've got the behind-the-scenes pics! Must. Visit. Macy's. ASAP.

• What were those hot hustlers up to this week? Zac Efron proved he's street chic, The Black Lips stripped down to their bathing suits, the Independent Spirit Awards were filled with studs, and Demetri Martin made us want to take him home with us.

• This is it! Your LAST Gossip Girl fashion fix until April 18. Soak in the glow of those gorgeous Upper East Side ensembles one last time.

• Wanna dress like a celeb? Well, now you can! Get gem stone earrings like Blake Lively, a prom dress like Kendall Jenner, or a Topshop blouse like Jena Malone.

• Spring trends are in full force (even though the weather may not be!). This week we loved: strappy heels, knit print leggings, crackle nail polish, and bangs!

• The fashion face-offs continue! Who wore it best: Emma Stone or January Jones?

Welcome our new Senior Editor Mary H.K. Choi to the MTV Style team! Check back on Monday for her first post, which we promise is going to be beyond-awesome. See you then!

Blake Lively at a dinner in her honor hosted by Chanel in New York on March 2.

On Wednesday at a Chanel dinner in her honor (fancy, huh?), actress Blake Lively dressed up her winter white frock with gorgeous green gem earrings! We loved the unexpected pop of color that added glitz to her otherwise monochromatic outfit. If you want to try this colorful trend, we've scoped out some similar studs.

Clockwise from left:
+ Betsey Johnson's "Lovely Leopard" Stud Earrings ($30, Nordstrom.com) are infused with hints of blue and green, which add even more drama to the diamond encrusted set.
+ These Melanie Auld Holly Earrings ($65, MaxAndChloe.com) have a huge round center like Blake's earrings, with gold touches on the outside.
+ Kate Spade's Gumdrop Stud Earrings ($38, KateSpade.com) are the most basic of the bunch, perfect for those who want to ease into this bright trend.
+ For an oval touch, opt for these Target 14K Gold Oval Emerald Teardrop Earrings ($69, Target.com), which feature a smaller green stone.
+ And last but not least, these Target Gold Over Silver Peridot and Diamond Earrings ($19.99, Target.com are the perfect shade of lime green, ideal for spring.

+ Would you go green like Blake?

Rihanna has teamed up with Nivea to help the skin care brand celebrate it's 100-year anniversary with an interactive social media campaign. Check out her first skin-baring ad! {People StyleWatch}

• You'd think the Gossip Girl bosses would give actress Blake Lively (Chanel's current spokesmodel) a pass to watch the brand's Fall 2011 fashion show in Paris on March 8. Alas, it does not—the actress is expected on set in New York City on the same day. {Fashion Indie}

Olivia Munn on beauty (spray tans, ChapStick, and skin texture) {Allure}

• It's a little late for New Year's resolutions, but that didn't stop Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon from recently blogging about hers. Among her must-dos: "Own more Alexander McQueen," and "Stop wearing only black nail polish." {Coco Perez}

• Fashion girls and beauty girls can finally unite on one common front—fashion-inspired makeup palettes! {Glamour}

• A box of Justin Bieber's hair, which he auctioned off for charity on eBay was worth $40,668. CRAZY, right? {People StyleWatch}

• What's better than the pretty patterned threads Michelle Obama and Jessica Alba wore while reading Dr. Seuss to elementary school students? Check out their facial expressions! ADORBS. {Huffington Post}

• Get that whole headband braid just right with this instructional video. You're welcome. {Fashion Indie}

Another Gossip Girl episode ("Empire of the Son"), another drama-filled party. During Chuck Bass' fashion-y fete, Nate Archibald (Chase Crawford) fell head over heels for Raina Thorpe (Tika Sumpter), and papa Thorpe tried to blackmail Chuck and Lily Humphrey (Kelly Rutherford) into signing over Bass Industries. Meanwhile, Lily, wearing Elie Saab(!!), turned herself into the district attorney for the forged affidavit she signed to send Ben Sharp (David Call) to jail, and Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) and Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) tried to hide their budding friendship—but, in the end, wound up smooching. Talk about a cliff-hanger! The Upper Eastsiders (and their Christian Dior frocks) are on hiatus until April 18. To hold you over, check out our fave looks from the episode below. XOXO...

Behind the backdrop of Eric Van Der Woodsen's (Connor Paolo) 18th birthday party, major drama goes down in "While You Weren't Sleeping," the 16th episode of Gossip Girl season four. Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) tries to "race to greatness" by spreading herself too thin. But in the end her plan to fast-track her career leaves her overly caffeinated and wearing two different (but equally cute!) embellished pumps to Eric's party. Despite her best efforts to do it ALL, Blair gets fired/quits W magazine. Meanwhile, Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) is forced to choose sides between her fam and her new beau Ben Sharp (David Call), and Lily Humphrey (Kelly Rutherford) and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) are in cahoots to get back Bass Industries. Oh, and Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Szohr) makes a return to Brooklyn/the Upper East Side to beg for forgiveness from Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley), who seems to be crushing hard on Blair. Check out all of our fave Upper East Siders' styles below.

David LaChapelle has sued Rihanna over her new "S&M" music video. The famed fashion photographer claims that the video is WAY too similar to some of his work. {Styleite}

• Over the weekend, rapper Kanye West went to the Alexander Wang, Band of Outsiders, and Tory Burch fashion shows in New York City. One place he did not swing by? The Grammys in California. {Styleite}

• For Sunday's "Celebrating Ken" Mattel party, several menswear designers (i.e. Yigal Azrouel, Michael Bastin, and Billy Reid) revealed their Ken Doll designs, which were modeled after real-life dolls. {The Cut}

• Looking for a new gig? Why not apply to be Marc Jacobs' social media pro/Twitterer? During Sunday night's Grammys, the designer tweeted that he's looking for someone to come aboard and take over as head Twitterer. Of course, he got responses faster than you can say "tweet." {Styleite}

• Yesterday, Anthropologie launched its bridal site BHLDN.com. Hundreds of thousands of wives will now regret the fact that they're already married. {People StyleWatch}

Demi Moore is instigating drama between stylist Rachel Zoe and her former assistant Brad Goreski. The actress has apparently jumped ship from Zoe to Brad, who sources say, will be dressing her for the Oscars. Blasphemy! {NY Post}

Blake Lively, Emma Watson, and Alexa Chung at the 2011 Elle Style Awards in London on Feb. 14.
Photo: Getty Images

Blake Lively, Emma Watson, and Alexa Chung all made the cut (literally) for the 2011 Elle Style Awards held in London last night. All three trendsetters rocked dresses with risque—but not too scandalous—cutout details. Gossip Girl Blake's bold blue Emilio Pucci layered dress, which she wore with magenta Christian Louboutin heels, featured two sternum peepholes. Meanwhile, actress Emma Watson wore a sleeveless/side cutout Hakaan minidress with nearly matching Christian Louboutin pumps and an arm full of gold bracelets. And British fashion host Alexa Chung stepped out in a conservative below-the-knee blue print Yves Saint Laurent dress, which was slashed to reveal a bit of her belly.

Valentine's Day on the Upper East Side got off to a rocky start on the 15th episode of Gossip Girl, "It-Girl Happened One Night," with Blair and Serena vowing to sit out the lovey-dovey holiday. Their plan? Antics and drama (wrapped up in GORGE Marchesa and Ralph Lauren gowns) instead! Ben lies to Serena about being hired as a cater waiter; Chuck gets tricked by Papa Thorpe into kicking Lily out of Bass Industries, plus he and Raina hit a rough patch; Damien stirred trouble by blackmailing Eric AGAIN. The only sweet Valentine's-y moment was witnessing the relationship between Dan and Blair start to bloom. Hmm, could be cute.
