HEADLINES: Katy Perry is a Peach, Madonna Joins the Circus and Gwen & Gavin Make Hella Cute Kids.

Teen Mom Farrah Abraham didn’t realize who she was dealing with when she started a twitter war with Kourtney Kardashian. No worry, Scott and Khloe came to Kourt’s defence taking to their own twitter accounts to cuss out Farrah. Silly girl, don’t you know the Kardashians stick together? Power in numbers people. (People)

What do you think of Katy Perry’s shorter, lighter, peach coloured do? NOT getting divorced suits her! (Too Fab)

Anna Dello Russo has graced us with her brilliance in the form of 10 Christmas Party Rules. My fave?  #5: “Choose between HAT and MAKEUP. If you wear a hat keep fresh face otherwise you will looks like a transvestite.” Sound advice, I think! (annadellorusso.com)

Eeks! I almost fainted when I found this photo. My favourite couple of the moment, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, went hiking & hugging in LA this weekend. Tell me they aren’t perfection! I dare you! (Just Jared)

It has been announced that Madonna will headline the Super Bowl halftime show. The only reason I am the slightest bit excited about this is because Madge reportedly collaborated with the creative team from Cirque du Soleil. Madge doing crazy gymnastics with circus folk? YES PLEASE! (Lifeline Live)

Could these kids possibly have more swag? You’re right, it’s NOT possible! The most stylish tots in the biz, Kingston and Zuma Rossdale, went Christmas shopping with mommy Gwen this weekend at Sears. Damn I want to kidnap Kingston SO bad! (Popsugar)

You can file this under; MUST WATCH. Check out the trailer for Alexa Chung’s new show 24 Hour Catwalk. This shit is intense. And these judges definitely put the ‘judge’ in judgemental a la Simon Cowell styles. Love it! (Fashionologie)

HEADLINES: Kate’s Good Looks Are Hereditary, Chloe Sevigny Favours Snooki Over Nicky, and Kanye Tries to Be Like Marc.

Kate Moss’s half sister Charlotte (Lottie) has made her modeling debut at the tender age of 13. It was inevitable really, I mean, just look at her. (Fashionising)

Chloe Sevigny would ideally like to dress the Fanning sisters, but if that doesn’t work out she would prefer to dress Snooki over Nicky Hilton. Oh, and she became an actress because she can’t add or spell. (Fashionista)

Wowza! Mimi has been working out and it has definitely paid off. The diva showed off her post-pregnancy body in a red sheath at a Jenny Craig event yesterday and she looked damn good! Sure she was wearing Spanx, but who isn’t these days? (Popsugar)

The Olsen’s latest StyleMint contest video is here and it’s as quirky and cute as ever. The girls plank, stork, owl, plowl and hug it out. Seeing these sissys so cuddly makes me smile. (Youtube)

Karl Lagerfeld posted a picture of his collection of iPhones on his facebook account. Yeah, he has 5! I bet you can’t guess what decal they are all decorated with. (Refinery 29)

Kanye West channeled Marc Jacobs the other night by wearing a leather skirt on stage for his Watch the Throne concert at Madison Square Gardens. Yo, Yezzy imitating Marc won’t make you a better designer! (Huff Post Style)

Alexa Chung is the newest face of Vera Moda; modeling for their fall/winter campaign. Blah, blah, blah. It’s typical Chung. Nothing new or ground-breaking here – but that’s just my opinion. (Telegraph)

HEADLINES: Lindsay Lohan is a Hot Mess Minus the Hot, Alexa Chung has “It Girl Problems”, and Anna Wintour’s Travel Routine is Exhausting.

Stacey Kiebler and George Clooney continue their dominance of red carpets everywhere with an appearance at the London premiere of The Descendents last night. This is hands down my favourite look Stacey has rocked thus far. However, there really wasn’t much competition. George would you hire her a stylist already? I miss Elisabetta! (Popsugar)

Yikes! So Lindsay Lohan’s fifth mugshot, yeah I said fifth, has been circulating and let me tell you kiddies – it isn’t good! This is not how a 25 year old should look! This photo might just be the best deterrent for drug use I’ve ever seen. (People)

Ashley Greene has been named they new face of DKNY; a role she describes as, “an organic fit.” First of all I hate when celebrities use words like ‘organic’ incorrectly. ‘Organic’ is not a synonym for ‘natural’ in every context! Get your publicist a thesaurus! Second, don’t you dare try to convince us for a second that fashion is your passion. Why must everyone strive to be a multi-hyphenate?  (In Style)

Oh man, maybe it’s just been a long week but is Tavi Gevinson getting funnier? Either way this DIY post just made me legitimately laugh out loud at my desk. Whether it was laughter out of delirium or out of genuine funny bone tickling; it’s definitely worth a read on this dreary Friday. (Rookie)

So this oil spill is really messing with the penguins in New Zealand. I shit you not! So if you have any spare time this weekend; knit a sweater & save a penguin! (The Frisky)

Some say this is smart; I say this is ridiculously unnecessary. Apparently when Anna Wintour travels she boards a plane wearing a dress, goes to the washroom once the flight takes off and changes into jeans, and then before she de-planes she changes back into the original dress (de-plane is a word, I checked). Really? Is it that horrible if you are seen in public wearing jeans? Some people … I swear. (Gawker)

Champange, white girl, guido, meatball, and now ‘It girl problems.’ Alexa Chung is responsible for the latest and most conceited addition to the ‘problem’ catch phrase family. (The Cut)

HEADLINES: Lepoards are Dying, Alexa Chung is Returning to TV, and The Murse is Taking Over.

It’s Stacey Keibler’s 32nd birthday tomorrow. So George Clooney took her to Mexico – standard. And he brought along all her friends – generous! Or he’s just really, really smart. (Twitter)

Coco Rocha spoke to British Vogue recently about the pressures of modelling. Coco argues that models are scouted far too young and believes this needs to change. Sureeee, cause she was so resistant to becoming a model when she was scouted at 14. You loved it. You know it. (Vogue UK)

Nicole Richie really loves her leopard. Girl rocked leopard heels for business and leopard flats for pleasure. I think she’s been hanging out with the Kardashians too much! (Popsguar)

Speaking of dead leopards; Giambattista Valli for Macy’s is here. Peep the entire collection here. Was there a leopard genocide we weren’t informed of? (FabSugar)

Alexa Chung will be back on television! Her show 24 Hour Catwalk has been picked up by Lifetime (at least someone picked it up). As for the show; it’s being pitched as a younger, hipper Project Runway. Yay for originality! (Fashionologie)

Not only is Azzedine Alaia a fan of Kanye West; he’s a huge Beyonce fan as well. In fact he listens to her daily and can do the entire Single Ladies dance. Officially obsessed with this little factoid. (Telegraph)

WUTTTT? House of Harlow makes handbags? Yes, yes they do! AND – they are amazing! (The Purse Blog)

The ‘Murse’ is on the rise! Everyone from Lil Wayne to Jude Law has been rocking this look; making it official that the man-bag is having its moment. (The Daily Beast)

Our Top 5 Looks from Alexa Chung for Madewell

She’s backkkkk. Yup, Alexa Chung has played designer at Madewell once more. Her debut collaboration with the brand dropped last year and received a rather warm reception. This time Chung describes the line as less ‘selfish’ than her previous line. Stating that her first collaboration was more ‘exaggerated 60’s’ styling, and promising that her current line is much more wearable. And we whole-heartedly agree. read more…

HEADLINES: Bar Refaeli Sells her Smell, FNO May Be Dunzo and Anna Wintour Thinks She's A Joker.

Anna Wintour seems to have found her sense of humor recently. The Queen reportedly convinced Hamish Bowles to audition for the new season of X-factor for an article that will appear in the new issue of Vogue. So what song do you think Hamish chose for his time in-front of Simone and Paula? Why Britney Spears of course! (The Cut)

Rumour has it that Fashion’s Night Out is kaput as retailers complain the event is too much work and too little pay-off. Will fashion week be the same without its big kick-off? (Refinery 29)

The couple that dresses together … stays together? ‘Brangelina 2.0’ took a trip to the LA Zoo looking every bit the old married couple. Grumpy faces and all! (Popsugar)

Bar Refaeli pimped her new Escada fragrance in Barcelona while wearing some HUGE pink pants. Is Sephora going to expand to include a celebrity fragrance section? Because it’s about that time! (Celebrity Gossip)

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have announced that they will be folding their D&G diffusion line and combining it into their high-end Dolce & Gabbana line in the following seasons. So basically they are done with creating affordable fashion? Awesome! (Daily Mail)

Ex-Halston CEO Bonnie Takhar will be moving to London to transition into a role at Charlotte Olympia. Risky move by the British footwear brand considering how fast Halston tanked! (Elle UK)

The stars all came out to support Alexa Chung and her second collection for Madewell at a party in LA last night. Praise for the line is high as eager shoppers actually crashed Madewell’s website yesterday. Sure the stuff looks good but ‘crash-a-website’ good? Not so sure. (Glamour)

Awesome People Hanging Out Together: FRONT ROW EDITION

Fashion Week is one of those amazing events that brings people together; awesome people. And because space in the front row is limited, people you wouldn’t normally see together somehow end up sitting next to each other and posing awkwardly for photos.  You know, with that half-smile that is supposed to convince us they are friends in real life but you know they’re not. Or those candid shots where they pretend to be engaged in small talk but you just know they don’t have anything to say to each other (see Nicki Minaj and Anna Wintour). Yep, this is the shit we live for! read more…
