There are so many things to look forward to about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but of course we're most focused on the COSTUMES, and in particular, the rich, eccentric fashion of the Capitol. We're not alone in that, and to quench our desperate thirst for more peeks at the opulent amazingness that are the Capitol costumes, the filmmakers have relaunched their Capitol Couture Tumblr—this time with more info than ever! The site, which will post a new collection of content, or issue, every season, features character profiles, guides to Capitol fashion, and designer profiles—just to name a few things on this rich site. (Be warned: You really can just explore for hours.) We showed you the site's Capitol portraits, but at the time we had no idea how much more Capitol fashion we would be getting! As you know, costume designer Trish Summerville is pulling the looks for the Capitol straight from the runway, and so there's A LOT for us to look forward to. So far we know that the designer has pulled everyone from Alexander McQueen to Tex Saverio and, in the inaugural issue of Capitol Couture Issue One: Chroma Nouveau, there's even an interview with Nicholas K.

• New York Fashion Week has officially begun, and we've been keeping a daily diary of all the hottest happenings! So far, Vena Cava got glitter happy, JWOWW closed the Richie Rich show, and Nicholas K nailed it with black polish.

• Our favorite blondie Julia Stiles ditched her long sideswept 'do for some face-framing bangs. Do you like?

• Actresses have been doubling as fashion muses lately, and we can't get enough! This week, two of our favorite leading ladies (Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning) have landed fashion house gigs: BOY by Band of Outsiders and Rodarte. Get it, girls!

• What were those hot hustlers up to this week? Usher stepped out with his two most stylish accessories—his kids, the Jonas brothers showed off their Super Bowl style, Miguel sported some out-of-this-world ensembles, and Alex Pettyfer proved he's more than just a pretty face.

• Our favorite Upper East Siders are at it again! Who looked best on this week's Gossip GirlSerena, Blair or... Florence and the Machine?

• Spring trends are finally gearing up! This week we loved: satin stilettos, feminine florals, and full flush blush.

• Always wanted to look like a celeb? Well, now you can! Get Kat Graham's in-your-face statement necklace, Cee Lo Green's rose stud earrings, or Hailee Steinfeld's red hot pumps.

• The fashion face-offs continue, and this week it was ALL about Kim Kardashian. Who looked best: Kim Kardashian vs. Emma Watson or Kim Kardashian vs. herself?

• We've rounded up the top looks from the biggest events this week: Michelle Williams and Jennifer Lawrence go beige and black at the Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon, Selena Gomez and Cassie Scerbo go short and sweet at the Justin Bieber: Never Say Never premiere, and Heidi Klum and Nicky Hilton bust out the spring essentials at a Lucky launch party.

If you need a fashion show break, watch the BIGGEST show this weekend—the Grammys! We can't wait to see who wears what on the red carpet.

FASHION SHOW: STEVEN ALAN

• Designer Steven Alan made us want to be nerds (because, you know, we're not) with his fall collection of tweed blazers, scholarly topcoats and striped rompers.

• Whoever styled this show = layering genius.

• Check out the detailing on Alan's pieces—the side buttons on the romper, the fading on the striped leggings. We like. We like.

BEAUTY MOMENT: ALMOST-BLACK NAIL POLISH ON MODELS AT NICHOLAS K

• Just when we thought dark lacquer was outta here...

Pattie Yankee (a celeb manicurist for Dashing Diva with a cool name) created two custom colors for Nicholas K, a deep hunter green and brown with gold flecks polishes.

• P.S. The flatform boots that this model is wearing are killer!

FRONT ROW CELEB: KATRINA BOWDEN IN THE FRONT ROW AT BCBG MAX AZRIA

30 Rock's Katrina Bowden looked too cute at the BCBG Max Azria show, wearing a high-waist miniskirt, puff-sleeved top and black booties. And the pop of candy apple red on her nails is perfection.

• Is the girl sitting beside Katrina with the pretty pink lipstick Tika Sumpter (the actress who plays Raina Thorpe on Gossip Girl)?

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