When Madonna hit the red carpet, she told E!'s Giuliana Rancic that her son David Ciccone Ritchie, who was by her side, picked out her outfit. The pair struck an adorable duo pose in matching suits and hats, with David accessorizing with patent spats and the increasingly popular lapel brooch for men. His mom, of course, went full glitter: She's been essentially nowhere without her grill as of late, whether photo shoots or Instagram—we wouldn't be surprised if she wore it under her mask skiing or during yoga.
Mariah Carey, gloves, and fan on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Last summer, Mariah Carey's accessory of
choice necessity was an arm sling for her dislocated shoulder. She had many glamorous sling options, including a feathered one, a lace one, and a rhinestone-encrusted one. Now that she's largely healed, Mariah seems to have traded in one arm accessory for another: gloves.
Mariah appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to promote her new single, "The Art Of Letting Go," sporting lace and leather driving gloves. While the slings are no longer necessary, Mimi still has nerve damage in her right hand, which is why she's been wearing gloves. She reveals that she likes them, though, and is willing to give them "a moment." Glove makers, prepare yourselves for a rush of feathered glove orders. Have rhinestones on standby, too.
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.
BELT IT UP

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.

Does anyone else ever wonder what Lady Gaga does with all her clothes and accessories after she wears them? With the exception of a few pairs of shoes, some select bags, and one sheer leopard print catsuit (you know, that old wardrobe staple), the lady rarely recycles a statement piece. I mean, the cave of wonders that Mother Monster's closet must be.... It's baffling to even think about. For instance, how long do you think these gold-tipped gloves were waiting in a drawer for the right mega tasseled jacket to come along and be the perfect outfit complement? Or that moto head-bunting? And why is it that certain styles, or genres if you will, of accessories always crop up at the same time for Le Gaga (e.g., delicate romantic eyewear)? Is this Gaga's way of ushering in a new "heavy metal" era of dress?

Helllloooo, HOLIDAY! Ah, yes, Thanksgiving is finally upon us and all we can think about is pumpkin pie, mountains of dried leaves, and frosty mugs of cocoa in our idyllic futures. Turkey Day isn't just about giving thanks and eating too much turkey (or Tofurky, whatever your poison) it's also about celebrating the joy of the autumnal season even if you live somewhere a bit more balmy (or, you know, in a city high-rise devoid of character). This is the time of year, nay WEEK, when wearing orange, feathers, and leaf motifs makes sense while also adding a thematic touch to your feast day proceedings. Thus, to get in the ol' giant inflatable balloon spirit, we've put together the perfect set of T-Day accessories to suit your every need whether you're attending a parade, lunching at grandmas, or just kicking back with friends.
These Fairisle Long Gloves ($38) SCREAM Thanksgiving Day right? Not only are they in a fall-ish Fair Isle print, the color is all about pumpkins, cranberries, and gravy. (Nom nom nom.) Their long length makes them extra perfect for chillier evenings, too. They'd look fantastic paired with this Pendleton Indy Hat ($62), which is very trend savvy and begging to be taken on a T-Day hike or jumping into leaf mounds. Toss this Madewell Plaid Gentleman Scarf ($49.50) over it all and you're good to go for football gaming, parade cheering, or just cozying up on the couch.
