Haim for 'Marie Claire.'

I know Haim is strictly a trio, but that doesn't keep me from wishing I could sing back-up or play the tambourine for them. I think our lack of shared genes might be a problem, sadly, but a girl can dream. The band of talented sisters has us all hooked with their stream of infectious hits and even more infectious fashion sense. Their penchant for vintage-rock style shows up in everything from music videos (most recently in "If I Could Change Your Mind") to magazine spreads, and Haim's new fashion profile for Marie Claire is no exception. The trio's leather-and-lace persona is on full display, but we also get to see each member's individual style—a distinction that anyone with a sister can certainly appreciate.

Colyton Haynes Homme Essential

If y'all aren't watching Teen Wolf right now, you're missing out on some serious amazingness. See: One of the show's stars Mr. Colton Haynes (above). This TV drama is not only a killer (heh) show, but it's also bringing to light some of the rising Young Hollywood talent and their incredible style. We already knew that Colton has some serious acting chops, but, um, we're prettttty sure modeling couture clothes comes in at a close second. Colton covers the July/August issue of Essential Homme and his sultry summery spread is surely making our heads spin! In a dramatic (and inviting!) poolside shot, Colton sports a cashmere Gucci cardigan with nothing underneath (GULP) paired with floral jacquard Gucci pants that we LOVE. He finished the look with some patent leather Hermès oxfords and a clean-cut 'do. Mmmmm.

Maybe it's true that ready-to-wear women's fashions get a whopping eight weeks (that's two months, if you're counting) out of the year devoted to them. And that only semi-annually do their male counterparts enjoy an extra-special, 100% dedicated Fashion Week of their own - one in June and another in January. Maybe it's true that we are built biologically differently, and therefore, need different cuts and silhouettes to put together figure-flattering outfits. But let's face it, we're selfish. And the togs trotting down these Milan Spring 2013 Men's Fashion Week runways are just too good to ignore. Thus, here are our favorite looks from the past week that we want to borrow from the boys. Hey, if swiping dudes' styles is good enough for Alexa Chung, better BUH-LIEVE it's good enough for us!

What do you even SAY about this?? We're dying over this Moschino shirt and shorts combo. The tiled "FRESH" and vaguely Budweiser reminiscient label pattern is nothing like we've ever seen before - combining not only our love for mixed prints but ALSO the patriotic color palette is so up our Americana-loving alley. Who knew we'd be head over heels for supermarket chic?

Cassie at Cannes Film Festival

Leave it to Cassie to convince us we need to add a silk leopard jumpsuit to our wardrobe STAT. The musician-slash-model is already the queen of tricky fashion trends (after all, she still manages to pull off the half-shaved head thing), and this week she worked this amazing Salvatore Ferragamo onepiece to Cannes Film festival. Straight from the designer's Spring/Summer 2012 runway, the exotic orange and purple number is splashed with bold leopard print and adorned with a tie-waist cinch. It should go without saying that this eye-catching outfit is definitely not for the shy- but considering it's Cassie we're talking about, is it really any surprise the singer paired the piece with equally flashy accessories? She's added white Givenchy heels, a Balenciaga carryall bag, and, the piece de resistance, matching shades.

Kelly Osbourne, Hailee Steinfeld, and Camilla Belle wear cap-toe shoes.

As temperatures drop, slowly but surely, we’re stowing away our strappy sandals in favor of other closed-toe footwear. With a chill in the air, it's only responsible to shield your tootsies from the mounting cold. That, of course, just means covering them up to keep frostbite at bay, but it appears this week Kelly Osbourne, Hailee Steinfeld, and Camilla Belle have taken the whole "shield" thing literally, arming their feet (HA!) with metallic cap-toes.

A still from Lady Gaga's Muse Factory VMA promo.
Photo: MTV

If you're anything like us, you're nowhere close to having enough Lady Gaga in your life. Her history of sartorial risk-taking and deep rooting in popular music, without a doubt, consistently piques your interest and naturally, makes her the PUH-RIME subject for a blog such as ours. You know it. We know it. Even she knows it. Which is why she's (omgomgomgggg) performing at the 2011 Video Music Awards and obliged MTV with some seriously amazeballs promos just DRIPPING in fash-alicious goodness.

We already walked you through the series in which Gaga gets jazzy with her latest single "'Yoü And I", but last night during Jersey Shore, we watched the premiere of a SECOND promo with FOUR DIFFERENT OUTFITS. We watched with open-mouthed gazes as Gaga slithered from one pantsless outfit to the next in this "Muse Factory" TV spot, and seriously guys, our little hearts almost couldn't contain our rapture! Since we're sure you're dying to know, we're bringing you a break down of all the fashion credits from the promo - the hard work and creativity of fashion director Nicola Formichetti, stylist Brandon Maxwell, hair stylist Frederic Aspiras, makeup artist Tara Savelo, and nail guru Aya Fukuda.

Lady Gaga waxes poetic.
Photo: MTV

Last year was the meat dress. The year before, she bled to death. So the minute we heard that Lady Gaga herself was performing at 2011's VMAs, we got on the horn to our bookies, started taking odds, and placed bets on what her Gaga-ness will wear. According the her hot-off-the-presses VMA promos, we might be betting on nothing, literally, as Gaga strips down to her bare essentials while singing a jazz rendition of "Yoü And I."

Gone is the Versace kaleidoscope of colors we've seen of late, replaced by a Gaga who invokes smoke-filled cafes and a poet behind the piano by setting things in black-and-white, looking like a classic dame who just wants to rid herself of her bra. Even though she has mod/modern angles and contrast galore, she nods to the classicism of a chick with a piano and an upright bass with waist-length string of pearls...which is one of the few things remaining when Gaga stops.

Watch Lady Gaga's 2011 VMA: First Look promo videos, and don't miss "MTV First: Lady Gaga," an exclusive live Q&A on Thursday, Aug. 18 at 7:49 p.m. ET. to watch Gaga discuss her "Yoü And I" video, her upcoming VMA performance, and make a special VMA announcement. Until then, here's a breakdown of all of the genius fashion and beauty scrawled all over this promo thanks to Gaga's fashion director Nicola Formichetti and their amazing team (Brandon Maxwell, Frederic Aspiras, Tara Savelo, and Aya Fukuda).

Amid the weird UES return of Damien (the drug-dealing misfit who helped Jenny, um, ruin her life), Gossip Girl's 13th episode of season four, "Damien Darko," showed Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) looking fierce for her first few days as a fashion intern at W magazine. It didn't matter that her main duties included stapling, filing, and stuffing gift bags—Blair rocked a Valentino cardigan with pink short-shorts and patterned tights one day and a Bensoni print dress with DKNY tights on another day. But when Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) "the sixth W intern" rained on Blair's parade, proving that he can indeed tell the difference between Marc Jacobs mustard pumps and Louis Vuitton lemon stilettos, the two butt heads. The bickering culminates at a W party where the two race to impress the higher-ups first, but they both wind up getting the ax after their boss catches them fighting on the floor (Blair in a slinky BCBG dress and Dan in a Theory suit). Classy. Meanwhile, Raina Thorpe (Tika Sumpter) of Thorpe Interprises, who can seriously work a Jay Godfrey shift, continues to sleep with the enemy, Chuck Bass, amid continuous company controversy. Double classy. Who do you think looked best?

Angelina Jolie recently took her style aesthetic to a whole new level by choosing luxurious, cozy fabrics to wear during a worldwide promo tour for her newest film, The Tourist (with a pit stop at the premiere of Megamind). From velvet and satin, to decadent wool, the actress/humanitarian/mother of six showed that what a garment is made out of can be just as statement-making (and a lot more important...i.e. WARM) as its cut and color.

Angelina wore a L'Agence embellished top and velvet blazer with velvet pants for the premiere of Megamind, which she attended with her stylish beau Brad Pitt, in Paris on Nov. 29. She finished the head-to-toe black look with matching Salvatore Ferragamo pumps.

For the New York City premiere of her new movie, The Tourist, which she stars in with Johnny Depp, Angelina chose a floor-length angora gown from Atelier Versace. The waist-gathered white dress had a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit. Angelina completed the winter white ensemble in matching Ferragamo heels.

Angelina opted for Versace again for the Berlin premiere of The Tourist on Dec. 14. The strapless velvet dress even came with built-in gloves! Style and comfort—we love!

Even though Angelina wears black often on the red carpet, she manages to make it fun each time! For the Rome premiere of The Tourist, Angelina mixed a velvet black Ferragamo blazer with satin pants. She made the menswear-inspired look feel feminine by wearing her hair down and applying a coat of bright red lipstick.

During the Madrid photocall for her movie promo tour, Angelina rocked a black blouse tucked into wide-leg trousers. She finished her classic look with a white Michael Kors angora shrug and a gold Tiffany & Co. "Elsa Peretti" bone cuff.

The actress stunned us in a black and white Versace gown, which had a Swarovski encrusted top and luxurious velvet skirt. Absolutely divine!!

AnnaLynne McCord, Leighton Meester, and Halle Berry are just some of the actresses who’ve recently brought the power suit trend from the 1980s back in a very modern and sexy way. By choosing well-tailored cuts, festive fabrics, and girly footwear, these ladies prove that sporting a menswear look can be just as flirty and feminine as a cocktail dress.

ANNALYNNE MCCORD: We love how structured AnnaLynne McCord’s look was for the People’s Choice Awards press conference on Nov. 9 in West Hollywood. Her gray tailored trousers pair perfectly with her poufy-sleeved shirt. The blue tie, crimson belt buckle, and red pumps add fun flashes of color to her otherwise neutral ensemble.

LEIGHTON MEESTER: For the Gotham Independent Film Awards, Leighton Meester opted for a traditional menswear look, choosing a black Thom Browne suit, which she wore with a classic white shirt and a loosely knotted tie. But the Gossip Girl actress kept it girly with Salvatore Ferragamo heels.

HALLE BERRY: Halle Berry opted for a Balmain suit from the label’s Fall 2010 collection when she attended the Frankie and Alice premiere in Los Angeles. The actress let her jacquard suit shine by choosing a simple black blouse and pumps.

JESSICA ALBA: Jessica Alba skipped the shirt underneath when she wore a black Dolce & Gabbana suit, which she teamed with studded Christian Louboutin pumps to the Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York City last month.

WINONA RYDER: Winona Ryder also went for head-to-toe black in a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci suit, which she paired with a stain clutch and a dramatic silver necklace.

HALLE BERRY (PART 2): Halle Berry attended The Hollywood Reporter’s Annual Power 100 event celebrating women in entertainment in a pinstripe Dolce & Gabbana suit. She finished the look with a Gucci halter in neutral tones and a leopard print Jimmy Choo "Mandah" bag.

ANNALYNNE MCCORD (PART 2): AnnaLynne McCord looked white hot at the Spike TV awards in Los Angeles, where she showed up in a loose boyfriend blazer and flared pants. The actress spiced up her all-white look with a leopard print clutch, plus the same red pumps from her earlier menswear look.

JESSICA STROUP:The menswear-inspired jumpsuit that Jessica Stroup wore to Charity Ball in New York earlier this month looked elegant with pleating and a plunging neckline. She kept it clean with black satin pumps. So pretty!

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