• We've covered EVERY SINGLE THING you need to know before going to prom this year! We took dress inspiration from our favorite prom movies (and the streets!), found ways to do your own hair for less, picked out the best frocks for under $100, got tips on what NOT to do on the big day from the Worst. Prom. Ever. movie, picked up some hot dress trends from Sherri Hill, and finished our entire prom look with some KILLER nails.

• But to look good at prom, you're going to need a date! We picked out our top prom king contenders: high-fashion guy Kanye West, all-American pretty boy Ethan Peck, class clown Aziz Ansari, supercute music dude A-Trak, and loner outcast hottie Robert Pattinson. Who do YOU think should be crowned prom king?!

• It's been a HELLUVA week in the shoe department! Lady Gaga sported shoes with dildos on them, Skechers started making Shape Ups for little girls, Madonna put her cray cray black and white Chanel boots up for auction, and Keri Hilson rocked GINORMOUS bright yellow platform wedges.

• This week we noticed some, erm, more interesting trends. Take a gander at: larger-than-life hair, wedding dresses made out of toilet paper, exposed bras in public, cat hairball jewelry, and REALLY REALLY huge septum rings.

That's all, folks! Stop back in on Monday for more must-have fashion news!

Skechers Shape Ups for girls.

I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE THINKING. You're steamed, right? 'Cause this series of ads wherein effervescent, cool-girl cartoons play in a super-fun, glamorous band is pissing all over your fondest memories of Jem and the Holograms AND Barbie & the Rockers, ROIGHT? No? Well... ANYWAY, this is sort of a late pass and was considered for a "Let's Discuss" a couple of days ago and then swiftly forgotten about because I have the attention span of a sparrow fart (hmm... wait, birds don't fart. But do all birds not fart? I know that's why seagulls explode when if you feed them Alka-Seltzer. Man, if only there was a resource where I could type in a query just like this one for a wealth of related, and non-related results...) and because it was fairly knee-jerk as to what the discussion would be--Skechers Shape Ups for Girls somethingsomethingEATING DISORDER.

In the subsequent days, what I found really interesting about the coverage of these fugly kicks for ladytots are the comments on Jezebel from adult wearers of Shape Ups and other ortho-fitness shoes because apparently they cure backache, plantar fasciitis and alleviate bunion pain? Whaaa?

Typically, I'm of the, "OH HELL MASH YOUR FEET/BACK/LEGS, WHO CARES SHUZ BE PRETTIES" school, but then again, I am not a role model. In fact, the reason why I'm even writing about this at all is that today I am wearing sneakers for the first time in about a fortnight because EVERY TIME I BEND MY KNEES I HEAR MILLIONS OF MUSHY CARTILAGE CELLS POP BECAUSE I ALMOST ALWAYS WEAR 5-INCH HEELS. It totally freakin' makes me think of gelatin.

So while I actually think it's detrimental to the young psyche to plant concerns about body image and weight loss and marketing any product as a quick-fix solution, I am also not mad at creating an appeal for an orthropedic shoe so that when they're older they feel some sense of nostalgia about its appeal. Sorta like if jelly shoes were good for you. I'd be so 'bout it and maybe 30 percent less broken. Seriously, I may die of this. It's someone else's fault entirely that I am so vain, and I don't know what to do. In short: Skechers Shape Ups For Girls? Not as mad as I thought I'd be (maybe just for today, though, I am as fickle as I am vain AND FUN!). Holy crap, mah bones.

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