In a little under a year, Frank Ocean has catapulted from being relatively unknown to releasing a buzzworthy debut album (Channel Orange) and garnering Grammy accolades for said release. But it's not just the music world that Ocean is dominating, this past year, he's also been getting love from the fashion community, hobnobbing with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, posing for GQ magazine, attending his first-ever Fashion Week in Paris, and NOW, he's starring in his first ever fashion campaign. Frank is lending his smiling eyes and pearly whites to Band of Outsiders for the label's newest Polaroid campaign (previous stars have included Michelle Williams, Harry Potter dudes Rupert Grint and Tom Felton, and Kirsten Dunst), and the result is devastatingly heart-warming.

Ke$ha dished out her top fashion favorites to Her favorite store? West Coast thrift shop Out of the Closet. Favorite piece of clothing? A vintage Guns N’ Roses tee. Favorite items on tour? Blue lipstick. Oh, and of course glitter! {Spin}

Topshop offered Courtney Love a chance to design a collection for the London fashion chain, but Courtney refused saying she didn’t want her line "in the basement in Topshop on Oxford Circus." She’d rather have her collection appear in Browns or Selfridges. OK, relax C. Love. {Elle}

Kate Middleton's selling power is skyrocketing compared with Michelle Obama's. While both ladies are known for mixing high and low items, Kate increased Reiss' site traffic 500 percent after she was spotted in their bandage dress, and after Michelle wore head-to-toe J. Crew on The Tonight Show, the site traffic increased only 64 percent. Hmmm... math. {Fashionista}

• CFDA Lifetime Achievement award honoree Marc Jacobs reveals that his 1993 grunge collection was the most liberating of his life because it was "about a dismissal of everything that one was told was beautiful, correct, glamorous, sexy." (Ed note: And everyone who is old enough to remember all his GLORIOUS work immediately after his Perry Ellis tenure concurs heartily with maybe a tear in each eye.) {Telegraph}

Lady Gaga's Polaroid collection FINALLY debuts. The portable printer creates snapshots from any cellular phone, so you can document your daily outfits in a snap. {Oh No They Didn't!}

Pop superstar Lady Gaga (aka the Creative Director for Polaroid) was at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Jan. 6 to unveil the first batch of gadgets she helped co-design for Polaroid’s Grey Label specialty line. The gizmos (a throwback Polaroid camera, a pair of futuristic shades with a camera built in, and a portable pic printer) were cool, but they took a backseat to the sexy avant garde outfit Gaga was cloaked in while presenting the line.

Turns out, the black jersey dress with hip pads (that Lady G teamed with a somber black veil) was from the Spring 2011 collection of up-and-coming designer Sally LaPointe. "I feel really blessed that my art has been so well received. I get to do something I love and am passionate about everyday, and the fact that my work is being worn means that I can share my vision with a broader audience," said 26-year-old LaPointe. Judging by the success of other Gaga dressers (Franc Fernandez and Noritaka Tatehana), LaPointe could be probably is on the fashion fast track.
