Diane von Furstenberg: "The Original Wrapper"
Photo: Harper's Bazaar

Being bookended by two beautiful fashion icons for your first ever photo shoot with Harper's Bazaar is definitely something to smile about (no matter how head-scratchingly incongruous your inclusion in the photo is). Wale does just that as he’s holding up the svelte, high-heeled legs of iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg and international supermodel Bar Rafaeli for the magazine's February 2014 issue. It's the lead image for a piece entitled “The Original Wrapper”—see what they did there? *wink wink nudge nudge*—which commemorates the 40-year anniversary of DVF's timeless wrap dress. As model Rafaeli puts it, the photo is meant to highlight "the wrap and rap combined," and also to give context to that très punny headline. But hey, it’s not every day a rapper graces the pages of Harper’s Bazaar, so fine, if they needed a play on words to do it, we’ll take it.

OMG. Looks like yet another former Hills star can take "engagement ring" off their Christmas list this year. Reality star-turned-designer Whitney Port (who's been through her fair share of some very public dating disasters) just got engaged to her producer beau of two years, Tim Rosenman, who she met on the set of her Hills spin-off, The City. We're really happy for them and we're gonna let them finish celebrating, but we are DYING to get a glimpse of the ring, which has yet to be revealed. Will it be round and classic like Lauren Conrad's? A whopping square-cut stunner like Kristen Cavallari's? Something eclectic and vintage that reflects her laid-back, downtown boho style? EEE! Just show us already, kthx! (Also, CONGRATS!)

It may've been the weekend, but that certainly didn't stop celebrities from coming out to New York Fashion Week to see what their fave designers have planned for Spring 2014. Tons of famous faces flocked to various locations around NYC to see what the likes of Charlotte Ronson, Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY, Y-3, Hood by Air, and Alexander Wang have been working on.

With awards show season in full throttle and Fashion Week looming, it's easy to get swept up in all the excitement stateside and forget that there's a whole OTHER style game happening across the pond. Luckily last night we got a major reminder of the fashionable crew overseas, since some of our favorite U.K. musicians turned out at the 2013 Brit Awards— and looked amazing at that. Let's start with Rita Ora, who was somehow simultaneously easygoing AND glamorous in her Diane von Furstenberg gown. The sequined embellishment might make this dress red carpet-appropriate, but the high-cut leg, the fishtail braid and Rita's hot pink lips really cement the outfit's cool factor.

Models strutted their stuff in Google's futuristic glasses at NYFW.

The future is nearly here, and we got to take a glimpse into it at Diane Von Furstenberg's Spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week today. Google has been slowly but surely giving us more information on their mysterious Project Glass for a while now, but there are many questions left unanswered, and for a lot of people who aren't diehard tech junkies, this might be their first look at the project within a larger context. First, a little more info: Google Glass is a device that's worn much like a pair of glasses, and might one day even be able to be worn attached to a pair of prescription shades or sunnies, that functions much like an iPhone or digital camera but is totally hands free. At the end of her runway show today, DVF herself was wearing the device, and could be seen mouthing "I'm filming you" to the lovely people in the front row (which included Sarah Jessica Parker and Bravo's Andy Cohen) as she took her bow accompanied by Google co-founder Sergey Brin. Honestly, though, we're not entirely sure how the glass works, and neither, it seems, are fans of both the glass and DVF, who, when the designer posted photos taken with it to her Google+ page, kept asking about the user interface. Do you talk to it, like Apple's Siri? CAN IT READ YOUR MIND? What we do know is that it takes pretty great photos, and the designer and her staff have been using both the photo and video functions to record on the runway and off, to be released as a short film on Thursday September 13th. Check out more photos seen "thruglass" as DVF's hashtag so poetically puts it, after the jump.

Last time we brought Forbes across your radar, it was back in May when the business mag showcased Selana Gomez and Justin Bieber as a super cute biz-casual couple for its Celebrity 100 list. That was pretty awesome, but now even more of our MTV favorites are hitting the pages of the glossy...and they're bringing some SERIOUS girl power in tow. We're talking about Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Lopez, who made the annual 100 Most Powerful Women List, coming in at 14, 32, and 38, respectively. Talk about impressive! Oh, and gasp!- get this- these music stars all ranked higher than Anna Wintour. Whoa.

We already know that Drew Barrymore has major film skills that go WAY beyond acting in front of the camera (just watch her awesome directing debut Whip It if you need a refresher). And now, after working with Hollywood up-and-comers like Chloe Moretz in Best Coast's "Our Deal" video and shooting Victoria Justice for V Magazine, the Golden Globe-winning actress is turning the lens on yet another ingenue. Shailene Woodley is Drew's latest muse, channeling '70s film icons in a sultry new Vs. Magazine spread.

Can't hang ten on your longboard quiteee yet? Well, you pretty start practicing, because Diane von Furstenberg and Roxy have just announced that they're teaming up on a surfwear line...and if THAT'S not enough incentive to hit the waves, then honestly, we don't know what is. The swim, surf, and lifestyle brand is no stranger to awesomely high fashion collabs. After all, it joined forces with Cynthia Rowley on last year's amazing collection of wetsuits (and everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Alexa Chung agrees!). But this time around, expect tons of cute stuff you can wear in AND out of the water.

Typically not two words you associate with each other, "funny models" is exactly the kind of thing we're into. It's not that models aren't funny, it's just that we so rarely hear them speak (or see them smiling), and especially not for a store campaign. Barney's CO-OP isn't your typical store, though. For their new spring 2012 campaigns, they shot two videos (one for women and one for men) featuring models telling life stories while wearing looks from various spring collections. But the stories? They're HILARIOUS. We're talking stuff involving interesting/bizarre dance moves (otherwise known as Butoh, which is actually a real dance technique, and The Pancake, which we think is completely made up), as well as issues involving toes, small towns, swallowing quarters, and a model dude yelling "AHORCALA!" really passionately for no apparent reason. You guys, you need to see these videos to behold their fash-magic.

Since it's winter, and we just attended New York Fashion Week, which showcased the fall 2012 collections, we started to think to ourselves, "Even though none of these ensembles will be available until fall, can't we start wearing some of the trends now seeing as how it's the same temperature?" Well, of course the answer is obvious; it's a resounding hellz YES. And if we get even more specific, why not isolate the kewlest accessory trends at NYFW so we can start building the looks a little early? It's a no-brainer. (And we're zombies right now, so perf! BRAAAAINS.) Thus, here are our favorite accessory trends from the shows which you can start adopting onto your person immediately.

Looks from the Rag & Bone, Jenny Packham, and 3.1 Phillip Lim fall 2012 shows at New York Fashion Week.

So, belts were everywhere during fashion week. Thick ones, thin ones, plastic ones, leather ones. The point is, get one and make sure it's interesting and/or long enough so you can loop-de-loop that sucker over itself. At Rag & Bone, dark oxblood belts where cinched over blanket coats, so grab a blanket, pilfer your BF's belt drawer, and go for it. Jenny Packham added thin belts to her Old Hollywood rockabilly gowns, and we love this idea for giving your prom dress some edge. At 3.1 Phillip Lim, belts were looped all ovah the place, and we're especially fond of this thick translucent white belt over a white shirt, layers of gray knits, and khaki pants.

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