Check Out: Which former Bachelors and Bachelorettes have stayed together (or, more accurately, broken up). Wonder if Chris and Des will be one of the few to make it work?

See: The newest member of the short-hair-don’t-care club: Queen Bey. Miley, Emma, Rihanna, and now Beyoncé – looks like we’re going to have to call our hair stylist. Stat.

Watch: How (not) to curl your hair. There are a lot of things that are great when fried: dough, ice cream, potatoes. Hair? Not one of them.

Going, Going, Gone Viral: Beyoncé’s Hair Disaster

Confession: we’re a little Beyoncé-obsessed – but then again, who isn’t? After watching this video of her wind machine turning against her, our love for the queen diva only grew. What a true professional.

From Beyoncé's trillionth good deed to Fashion's Night – er, year – Out, here's what we're buzzing about this week

Chitter Chatter

Make: New Fashion Week kickoff plans this fall. The U.S. version of Fashion’s Night Out is going on hiatus for 2013. (Fingers crossed they repurpose all those fashion trucks as food stands.)

See: Girl-crush extraordinaire Jennifer Lawrence’s newly dyed dark hair. Wonder if the look affects Jack Nicholson’s initial offer?

Support: All the single (and non-single) ladies. Beyoncé has signed on for Gucci’s Chime for Change campaign, focusing on equal opportunity for women worldwide.

Get: Your crayons out – Kate Moss just released a coloring book in which budding artists can decorate – wait for it – her. That fridge door’s about to get insanely chic.

Red Hot: Stylish Celebrity Couples We Love

iStock_000003951574SmallWhile we love to hypothesize about the romances of our favorite celebrities (looking at you, Taylor Swift), there’s one thing better than the cycle of makeups and breakups in the spotlight – the fashion. These stylish lovebirds are always on our best-dressed list:

Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen: A Brazilian supermodel and an NFL superstar with runway good looks? Okay, fine. You guys win.

David and Victoria Beckham: Celebrity designer meets (and marries) hunky athlete. Every date night is a fashion statement for these two.

Jay-Z and Queen Bey: Because – she’s Beyoncé.

Barack and Michelle Obama: The First Couple are the new Kennedys. Michelle has become a fashion icon in her own right, and her signature style – pairing designer labels with brands like J.Crew – continuously stuns.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Middleton’s fashion influence has a near-global reach. From the Alexander McQueen wedding dress to her grocery-store attire, Kate’s style has morphed into a cult-like obsession. (And the Prince in Irish Guards? Yes, please.)

Which celebrity couple do you think is the most stylish?

We Couldn't Have Said It Better

It’s no secret that we adore Kate Middleton (and her style, of course). And the duchess with some signature Beyoncé fierceness mixed in? Um… yes, please.

The AMAs Celebrates 40 Years of Fashion

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the American Music Awards, which has spawned some truly memorable fashion moments over the years. Here, a look back at a few of my favorites.

Michael Jackson was feeling “Dangerous” in 1993 and his AMAs performance – complete with male backup dancers wearing matching black suits, skinny ties, and fedoras – made him look like the leader of an army of well-dressed mobsters.

In 2007, Fergie took to the stage in a barely there sequined Jenny Packham sheath and sky-high red stilettos, giving Tina Turner a run for her money in the legs-up-to-there department, while her Black Eyed Peas bandmate will.i.am looked every inch the gentleman in his top hat and velvet smoking jacket. That same year, Avril Lavigne transitioned from teen punk rocker to grown-up divorcée in a black T-shirt and silver skirt.

A year later, Beyoncé channeled her alter ego, Sasha Fierce, and tore up “Single Ladies” wearing a plunging black and white Armani Privé satin jacket with matching black booty shorts beside backup dancer (and current Glee star) Heather Morris in a coordinating one-armed bodysuit.

Jennifer Lopez went for the gold – literally – during her boxing-inspired 2009 AMAs performance of “Louboutins,” with a 24K microphone and glittering gold, leather, and lace romper that almost made us forget she fell on her butt mid-song, while Rihanna opted for a skin-baring white bandage jumpsuit. Thankfully, there were no wardrobe malfunctions during her performance, despite having only a thin strip of leather covering her lady bits.

Not one to be outdone, Lady Gaga also went the jumpsuit route in 2009 but in her case, it was flesh-toned, covered by a plastic exoskeleton that extended from her ankles to her rib cage, completely obscuring the upper half of her face and lighting up when she moved.

And in 2010 Katy Perry set off “Fireworks” in a sparkly crimson Marco Marco jumpsuit that did her figure all kinds of favors.

With Nicki Minaj and Rihanna leading the 2012 AMAs with four nominations each, and Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Adele, and Taylor Swift also in the running, we know this year’s AMAs is sure to have more than a few looks to remember.

The 2012 American Music Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday, November 18, at 8PM ET on ABC.
