Aaah, it’s back!!! Last night on the premiere of “Project Runway’s” ninth season, 20 designers were invited to New York to pitch themselves to our beloved panel. Only 16 would survive the first round of cuts. The designers met one another for the first time at the Astor Center in SoHo (mere blocks from the Styleite offices) and did their best to set up their collections and wage psychological warfare simultaneously.
Wish your baby could dress like the Mother Monster? Then Gaga Goo Goo, Lady Gaga‘s new line of clothing for the under two set, would no doubt be a dream come true.

We’ve had designer footballs, designer towels, and (faux) designer pedicabs, and now we have designer trash. This isn’t just any trash, though. It’s Christian Louboutin trash.

Anna Wintour’s memoir, Grace Coddington’s tell-all, and Kate Moss’ autobiography all sound great but no upcoming book (rumored or real) sounds as great as this: LADY GAGA, a collection of Terry Richardson’s never-before-seen pictures of Mother Monster, is set to be published this fall.
If her son’s closet wasn’t enough of an indication, celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe revealed in a Nightline interview that she’s obsessed with children’s clothes. But is she obsessed enough to actually design a full line of them?

That’s no insignificant detail considering Joe’s family includes band of brothers/ fellow celebrities Nick and Kevin Jonas. Could this mean the couple is getting serious?
Tim Gunn has never been one to pull punches, so we shouldn’t be surprised that when he showed up for a taping of George Lopez Tonight, he came armed with lots of barbs about Snooki, the way women dress in general — and a word or two about the Secretary of State’s much-reviled pantsuits.
