Good old Stefano and Domenico (Dolce & Gabbana for those of you not on a first-name basis) are causing some hubbub again. It seems the Italian duo has been stirring up the drama a LOT lately—y'know, with the tax evasion and alleged racism and all. *GULP* Still, no one can quite deny the total awesomeness of their Fall/Winter 2013 collection, especially ever since Katy Perry showed up looking like Queen Guinevere’s hot goth sister at this year's Met Gala. But just when you thought it was smooth sailing on the Adriatic, D&G are now the face of a scintillating Scarlett Johansson vs. Katy Perry "who wore it best" battle!

We'll get right to the point. Taylor Swift is wearing a shirt designed by Kanye West in the April 2012 issue of Harper's Bazaar Australia. That's right, TAYLOR SWIFT is wearing KANYE WEST. Although we feel the urge to type it a third time just to make it all the more real, we'll spare you and get right into how we can hear the distant sound of a hatchet being buried. Not that Miss Swift is the type to hold a grudge, mind you. As you might remember, back during the 2009 VMAs, Kanye crashed Taylor's acceptance speech after she won an award for Best Female Video. It was a totally bananasville moment that he later apologized for, but not without some serious backlash from the music community and, well, everyone everywhere at large. There was a long healing period where each one expressed degrees of being over the incident, but now we have actual FASHION proof.

Generally, magazines do this thing each time they encounter a girl with "quirk" or "pep" where they decide to style them in "vintage." Michelle Williams, early Natalie Portman, and Zooey Deschanel have all been victim to the spunky gal/retro shoot, but Mia Wasikowska’s most recent shoot in Harper’s Bazaar Australia took the time-traveling thing über-seriously. Not only did stylist Jillian Davison put the Aussie actress in plenty of high-necked lace and a couple of corsets, but her black Nerida Winter bonnet has us feeling oddly War Of The Roses (and not in the sexy, The Tudors bodice-ripping sort of way). Granted, Mia is promoting her role in the upcoming Jane Eyre, but a Louis Vuitton batiste turnover collar doth not an It Girl make.
