The theme this year for the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition is Models as Muse: Embodying Fashion.

The exhibit will explore how models have changed fashion by inspiring the designers who've dressed them, and sometimes designed for them, through seventy looks handpicked from the Costume Institute's collection.

It begins May 4th, with the annual big party, and will be co-chaired by Marc Jacobs, Justin Timberlake, Kate Moss, and Anna Wintour.

Can't wait to see it, or don't have access to get to the Met? Here is a preview of the exhibit:

Matthew Williamson for H&M Menswear preview

Image Hosted by

Didn't get what you wanted from the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection last Thursday?

Don't fret! A second shipment will be coming in on May 14th.

But this time, you may want to bring your boyfriend, brother, or gay best friend along with you, because the first menswear line from the collection will also be for sale.

The line is based on what Matthew Williamson would wear himself, which led him to model in the ad campaigns alongside Canadian model, Daria Werbowy.

But beware: the menswear line is not for the shy. It features rainbow-coloured speedos, floral patterned dress shirts, hot pink pants, and more.

There are definitely some wearable items though, especially the leather jacket.

I may have to buy it for my boyfriend...but only if he'll let me borrow it.

Check out the Matthew Williamson for H&M menswear line below, including the photos of the designer!

Ballas Hough Band

You may be familiar with Mark Ballas and Derek Hough two of the professional dancers (and back-t0-back winners) on Dancing with the Stars.

But did you know the two have their own band called Ballas Hough Band (formerly known as Almost Amy)?

Yes, not only are they amazing dancers, but they are talented musicians too!

Ballas and Hough have been best friends since childhood, with Hough living with Ballas' family in London for ten years to train as a dancer.

The two began playing punk rock and metal music when they were 13, and have been jamming together ever since.

Their debut album BHB has a variety of catchy tracks, a lot of them resembling Maroon 5 (especially the track "Devastated"), that showcase Ballas and Hough's stellar vocals.

"I'd say kind of blues rock with a bit of pop in there, but with funky baselines, and very melodic," Ballas described to Good Day Atlanta of the band's sound.

Check out their music video for their debut single, "Do It For You" below!

You can buy their album BHB here.

The Fray - Never Say Never (Official Video)

"Never Say Never" is The Fray's second single off of their sophomore self-titled album.

It's a powerful song, and the official video is pretty dramatic as well.

Check it out below.

Anne Hathaway's latest Magnifique commercial

Below is Anne Hathaway's newest commercial for the Lancôme fragrance, "Magnifique." Much different from her previous commercial, but she still looks beautiful as always.

Also, does anyone recognize the song they used in the background?

It's Roisin Murphy's "Ramalama Bang Bang," which was used in a So You Think You Can Dance group routine during its second season.

Quote of the Day

I am totally confident that I am an incredible artist and performer. I am extremely confident about my body, the way I dress, the way I want to look. But I have no confidence when it comes to men. Men are a disaster area for me. It’s so weird because I believe I am super sexy. I believe I am incredible, but I have absolutely no luck with boyfriends.”
- 23-year-old Lady Gaga tells the Sun.

Best Dressed: Chanel Iman

"It's Topshop! Ahhh … I would have worn H&M if I knew I was coming here earlier! But I just sort of got out of the car. I had on pants earlier, but I just took them off!"
- 19-year-old supermodel, Chanel Iman tells the Cut blog at the launch party of Matthew Williamson for H&M.

With legs like those, who needs pants?

Daria Werbowy in V Magazine

Canadian supermodel Daria Werbowy is one of the many iconic models in Vmagazine's 59th issue: the Summer Swimsuit Issue.

This multiple cover issue gives Sports Illustrated a run for their money, featuring Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Claudia Schiffer in skimpy swimwear, along with Werbowy.

The models were shot by famed photographer, Mario Testino.

V59 is out on newsstands on May 6.

Perhaps this issue will educate Ed Westwick on Testino's work!

Update: Here is Daria's cover via justjared

Vintage Lady Gaga!

Back when she was known as Stefani Germanotta, Lady Gaga was a raven-haired emerging artist trying to make it big.

“She’s not here anymore. She’s covered in sequins,” Germanotta told WWD of her former back in August 2007 at Lollapalooza, an American music festival held in Chicago.

She also revealed that she was “not comfortable in a T-shirt and jeans,” and instead combined pieces from American Apparel, stripper shops in Times Square and M&J Trimming in the Garment District to create her own unique look.

"It’s got to be funny. I live for being different," said the 21-year-old. "Fashion and attitude and style, that's what we breathe for."

Best Dressed: Halle Berry

What a perfect way to sport the mesh dress, one of this season's must-haves!

Halle Berry looked stuning in this sexy form-fitting dress at the X-Men Origins: Wolverine last night at the Gruman's Manns Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

The 42-year-old actress came out to support friend and co-star Hugh Jackman.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine hits theatres on May 1st.

Congratulations to the two! But does this mean that their marriage isn't on the rocks...or will the babies just be a quick fix?

Megan Fox's teeny tiny waist!

OMFG! Look at her waist!

Megan Fox shows off her super tiny waist while shooting her upcoming movie, Jonah Hex in Louisiana.

Apparently, the pictures are 100% Photoshop used!

Is breathing even possible in a corset that tight??

Dancing with the Stars does the Single Ladies dance!

On this week's episode of Dancing with the Stars the contestants split up into two different teams to compete against each other. The team's scores will count as half of their judges scores in the upcoming elimination.

Team Mambo consisted of Olympic gold medalist, Shawn Johnson and her partner Mark Ballas, The Bachelor's Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani and country singer Chuck Wicks and his partner/girlfriend Julianne Hough. Unfortunately, Melissa was unable to perform due to an injury, so professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer filled in.

Team Tango had actor Gilles Marini and his partner Cheryl Burke, rapper Lil' Kim and her partner Derek Hough and rodeo champion and husband to Jewel, Ty Muray and his partner Chelsie Hightower.

Although the judges deemed Team Tango the winer, I definitely preferred Team Mambo's dance to "Single Ladies" by Beyonce.

Check it out below!

P.S. Mark Ballas in tights > Justin Timberlake in tights!

Popeye's runs out of chicken...

Why is this even news???

The Fashionably Challenged: Miley Cyrus

Why, Miley, why? You were doing so well!

Just when I thought Miley Cyrus was beginning to understand the concept of dressing in age-appropriate, flattering clothing, she sported this Dolce and Gabanna dress the the Paris premiere of Hannah Montana: The Movie.

The pattern is way too old for her, the cinching below the bust makes her appear wider than she actually is, the length diminishes her height, and the sequined collar makes her look like she has no neck!

Yet another fashion miss for Miley Cyrus.

Ed Westwick isn't very knowledgeable about fashion...

His character, Chuck Bass may be a fashion icon, but Ed Westwick, isn't so fashion savvy in real-life, at least when it comes to fashion trivia.

Grazia magazine gave Gossip Girl's resident bad boy their fashion guy quiz, while he was in London presenting a BAFTA TV award this past weekend.

Watch the video below to see his answers! least he knew the difference between a stiletto and a wedge!

Summer may be just around the corner but...

...I am LUSTING over these white studded Givenchy leather gloves. The added zipper makes them the perfect replacement for the black leather gloves I lost in the winter.

But with the weather warming up quickly, I think I'll have to turn on the A/C extra high..just so I can wear them.

Lindsay's 6126 collection launches online

Operation "get my career back into shape" is in action for Lindsay Lohan.

The website for the actress/singer/entrepreneur/frequent tabloid target's 6126 leggings collection has finally launched.

The line is inspired by Lohan's icon, Marilyn Monroe (the above "Crystal" style is described as "glittering enough to wear for a 'Happy Birthday, Mr. President' performance…) and Lohan's love for leggings.

The various styles range from $60-$132.

To view the 6126 collection, click here.

But in all honesty, would you really buy a pair of $132 leggings from Lindsay Lohan?
