Oh, Ed Westwick, I do love you so, but this magazine cover you're on is just wrong.
I mean, your face looks gorgeous as usual, but those tattoos? Not feeling them. Not to mention I've never been one for hairy men. And finally, the hot pink 'XOXO'? Epic fail, on the magazine's part anyways.
It's okay though, you're still my number one.
The Chic Spot
Finally! I've been Gaga deprived!
Lady Gaga attended a press conference in New York today to promote Heartbeats, her new line of headphones.
Those fabulous shades are by Alexander Wang (Spring 2010 collection) and the dress is thought to be custom spring 2010 Marc Jacobs.
This is the right way to dress up your dog!
Former Dancing with the Stars pro, Julianne Hough and her dog, Lexi hit the red carpet for Netflix's screening of The Wizard of Oz in New York City last night.

Robert Pattinson has landed the cover of AnOther Man's Issue 9.
The spread was shot by Heidi Slimane and styled by Nicola Formichetti.
The magazine will hit UK newsstands on October 1st.
H&M sent out a press release this morning that Sonia Rykiel will be the next guest designer to collaborate with them both in winter 2009 and spring 2010.
This collaboration marks the first time H&M has extended its designer collaboration to the world of lingerie and related accessories for women, with exclusive pieces to be launched in-store on December 5, 2009, as well as in Sonia Rykiel's major boutiques around the world.
The second collaboration for spring 2010 will launch on February 20, 2010 and will feature an "iconic knitwear" collection for women and girls (1.5 to 8 years old) as well as playful accessories.
“It is a hallmark of Sonia Rykiel to think of all women because fashion is about a certain spirit more than a question of means. This collaboration fits perfectly with our philosophy. The Sonia Rykiel pour H&M lingerie collection is the ideal way to offer the essence of Rykiel to a great number of women around the world, and a beautiful way to close the year. The knitwear collection is perfect for welcoming a colourful new season,” says Nathalie Rykiel, president and artistic director of Sonia Rykiel.
“Sonia Rykiel is a true fashion icon who invented a signature style around femininity, Parisian chic and modernity – as well as functional, comfortable, wearable clothes. She has an attitude that inspires admiration among women of all ages around the world. We loved the joyful chic of Sonia Rykiel’s 40th anniversary runway show – and in that spirit this collection is all about revelling in great lingerie for its own sake. This is a totally modern, new kind of lingerie look, and when we started to work together with Rykiel on it, we just couldn’t stop,” says H&M creative advisor Margareta van den Bosch. “It’s a wonderful highlight for our main collection.”
Surprising that H&M is doing another collaboration series so close to Jimmy Choo for H&M, but still exciting!
Last Friday was Teen Vogue's 7th annual Young Hollywood Party.
The event took place at MILK studios in Los Angeles, California.

The party kicked off with a runway show of D&G's Fall 2009/2010 collection, with a Rihanna soundtrack blaring in the background and finished off with a performance from the Noisettes.

If the bear wasn't enough to bring you closer to Karl Lagerfeld, now you can buy your very own Karl doll.
Artist Simone Legno has immortilized the designer in vinyl for Tokidoki, the Italian maker of Japanese-inspired collectible figurines.
The doll, which stands at 10-inches tall, comes decked out in a skinny black suit, rhinestone-studded tie and belt, and of course, Lagerfeld's signature sunglasses - all from his K Karl Lagerfeld Collection.
Only 1,000 figurines will be created. They will be priced at roughly $190, and will be distributed at Tokidoki flagship stores in New York, Milan and Los Angeles, as well as in specialty stores for holiday retailing. Colette will be getting the exclusive launch next month.
The mini Karl will also appear on t-shirts in next spring's K collection.

This is probably the most clothes she's ever worn in a photoshoot!
Megan Fox is the October cover girl for Nylon magazine.
The Jennifer's Body star channels the "hipster" look, but really, what else would you expect from Nylon?
Here are some highlights from the interview:
On seeing her in Jennifer's Body:
"It's a comedy, which no one has really seen me do before. It might be a complete failure on my part. But the fact that I had to really put myself out there is totally different than being able to hide behind the magic of ILM [Industrial Light and Magic, which did special effects for Transformers]. That's no hiding from anything. There's nothing there to distract you from my performance. So if it's bad, it's going to be f*cking bad for me. And if it's good, then I will have achieved something on some level."On her Marilyn Monroe tattoo:
"I'm really knowledgeable of her life, but I would never want to emulate her. She's not, like, a hero of mine. And I don't find any amazing parallels where I feel like we're one and the same, or any shit like that."On kissing Amanda Seyfried in their film:
"They slowed the film down or something. Amanda was extremely uncomfortable doing it, because she doesn't kiss girls. She hated it. I was way more comfortable with it than she was. And if I have to kiss a stranger for work, I would much rather it be a female than a male."
I know it's a little late, but after watching footage from the show at my internship, I realized how genius Alexander Wang's Spring/Summer 2010 collection is.
The CFDA Swarovski award winner for womenswear is brilliant at creating simplistic, yet basic pieces that are still distinctly Wang.
This season's collection was very athletic-inspired, with grey hooded sweatshirts, football shoulders, "tighty whitey"-inspired dresses and varsity team jackets.
Also the models were sporting gorgeous, thick braids in their hair, a look that is very easy to mimic.
Check out some of the looks below!

Miley Cyrus' music video for her single "Party in the USA" premiered on last night's Dancing with the Stars.
The highly sexualized video (short shorts, cleavage baring tank, and dry-humping the air) almost makes you forget that Cyrus is only 16.
I'm surprised she didn't use her mic stand as a pole.
Still a catchy song though.
What do you think?

Dancing with the Stars' Karina Smirnoff is the latest celebrity to star in PETA's anti-fur campaign.
A reformed fur-wearer, the 31-year-old dancer says she stopped wearing fur after learning about what happens to animals who are killed for their skins.
"I did wear fur, especially when I was little. But there are ways of being warm and being fashionable without being cruel," she told PETA.
"You have a choice as an individual, you have a choice in the press, in the world, whether to make a statement that you do support killing animals or make a statement when you don't. And you can still be as chic as you can possibly want to be."
What do you think of the campaign image?
Here is your first look at the official Jimmy Choo for H&M campaign images.
The photos feature model Edita Vilkeviciute and were photographed by Terry Richardson at The Standard Hotel in NYC.
The images will be officially released in October.
To check out some of the pieces from the collection click here and here.
Jimmy Choo for H&M will be available in stores November 14, 2009.

Vampires are so popular right now, it's no wonder everyone's trying to milk the trend while they can.
First it was the Twilight-inspired perfume, then the Jules Smith New Moon jewellery line.
Now, a True Blood jewellery collection is being released.
It's much classier than its predecessors, and includes rings, layered chains, and earrings.
The True Blood Jewelry Collection was inspired by some of the most provocative aspects of the groundbreaking HBO original series "True Blood." With vampires as the inspiration, luminous red rubies and cold steel have fused seamlessly to represent the dark, bloody sensuality that millions of viewers have thirsted for week after week. The True Blood Jewelry Collection has been influenced by many aspects of the infinite lives of vampires: from the blood they drink, to the seductive nature of being 'glamoured'; while a patented fang-like clasp holds many of the pieces together. But this collection isn't just about vampires and evil. After watching the show you will understand that the jewelry was also inspired by their ability to love, the peace they fight for and their hope for a better future.
Prices range from $59 - $1,295.00.
Will you be buying True Blood-inspired jewellery?

Chace Crawford and Megan Fox are featured in their own (separate) spreads in Wonderland magazine.
Not too crazy about Chace's, but Megan looks gorgeous, as per usual.
