Ryan Seacrest will host Fashion Rocks.
The charity event - which will be attended by an impressive array of celebrities - combines the world of fashion with musical performances and will broadcast on CBS for the first time since 2008.

Ryan added that he was determined to "make it an amazing and memorable night."
A huge string of diverse musical performers have already been confirmed for the two-hour extravaganza, including Jennifer Lopez, KISS, Pitbull, The Band Perry, Duran Duran, Afrojack, Miranda Lambert, Rita Ora, and Usher.

Referring to Rihanna, T-Boz of TLC said, "Every time I see you you don't have to be naked... It's hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, 'Oh TLC must be jealous,' but I call a spade a spade."

Melissa McCarthy has revealed designers refused to make a dress in her size for the Oscar awards in 2012.
The Bridesmaids star, who has just created a line of plus-size clothing for women, admits a number of high-profile designers snubbed her request for the glamorous event.
"Two Oscars ago, I couldn't find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers - very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people - and they all said no," the star said in the July issue of Redbook.
Despite being busy with her new fashion venture, the 43-year-old actress has also been juggling her family life, and admits her marriage with Ben Falcone couldn't be better: "We have a great marriage." The couple, who tied the knot in 2005, haven't let their high level of fame change their relationship because the most important thing to them is their two daughters Vivian, seven, and Georgette, four.

+ Tom Ford explains at his CFDA Awards appearance why he's been a little MIA in fashion lately: his son, Jack.
Madonna is being sued over her fitness brand.
The "Hung Up" hitmaker has been accused by beauty and fashion company Hard Candy of maliciously stealing their name to sell exercise DVDs and apparel and the firm have filed a lawsuit in federal court for trademark infringement and unfair competition.
The case claims the 55-year-old singer began selling her goods under the Hard Candy name in 2011 despite a previous rejection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. "Defendants' actions have caused and will cause Hard Candy, LLC irreparable harm for which money damages and other legal remedies are inadequate. Unless Defendants are restrained by this Court, Defendants will continue and/or expand the improper activities alleged in this Complaint and otherwise continue to cause great and irreparable harm and injury to Hard Candy, LLC," federal court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com state.
The lawsuit also targets Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, but claims the "Material Girl" singer is "the driving force behind the infringing activity, taking credit herself for the initial selection and subsequent expansion."
Behold: Kim Kardashian's wedding dress has been revealed!
After months of speculation regarding which designer the reality star was going to wear for her wedding, People reports that the long-sleeved floral pattern design (above) was designed by none other than Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy. For those more familiar with Kim and less about fashion, he's the designer who famously dressed the 33-year-old in what made her look like an old lady's sofa at last year's Met Gala.

David Beckham's mum calls him up when she sees billboards of him in his underwear.
The retired soccer star - who recently launched a new swimwear range for H&M - still isn't used to seeing himself fronting brand campaigns in next to nothing and neither is his mother, Sandra.
When asked about whether he gets used to seeing himself on giant billboards, he told ShortList magazine, "I don't think so. Especially not when I've got my mum calling me up saying, 'I've just seen another huge billboard of you in London - just you, in your underwear.'"
Although at first David - who has children Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and Harper, two, with wife Victoria - was embarrassed by the prospect of allowing the world to see him half-naked, he has grown used to it, but he was left red faced in New Jersey during the Super Bowl where there were millions of posters of himself all over the city: "But it is what it is. At first I was like, 'Oh my God I'm sat there in my underwear and everyone around the world can see it.' This year at the Super Bowl it was ridiculous. I've never seen so many billboards of myself in one city. Every corner I turned, every street, I was there, so it was verging on embarrassing after a while."
Taylor Swift is being sued by clothing brand Lucky 13.
The "Love Story" singer counts 13 as her favorite number and sells T-shirts with "Lucky 13" written on them through her online store, but Robert Kloetzly who owns Lucky 13 clothing - which has been trading since 1991 - feels she is stealing his business.
In a lawsuit lodged today, Robert accuses the singer of trademark infringement for unauthorized use of Lucky 13's branding, and claims they have contacted her people numerous times with no resolution. In court documents seen by website TMZ, Robert describes Taylor as a singer who likes "fast cars and dangerous men who drive them inappropriately," which is the same demographic as his company targets. It also cites the star's music video for "I Knew You Were Trouble" because it "depicts stylish, attractive, tattooed individuals in provocative situations," much like Lucky 13's branding.
Kendall Jenner is set to appear in Vogue.
The model and reality TV, whose sister Kim Kardashian appeared on the cover of the magazine with fiance Kanye West for the April issue, will have her own photoshoot featured in the fashion bible. According to E! News, the 18-year-old beauty has been photographed by acclaimed snapper Patrick Demarchelier for the forthcoming feature, while he has also taken photos of Sean Penn's daughter Dylan for the edition.
Kendall is keen to build on her experience in the modeling industry and carve out a career, having made her mark on the fashion world at New York Fashion Week in February, where she walked the runway for top designer Marc Jacobs.
Her successful stint subsequently saw her hired by Giles Deacon at London Fashion Week and by Chanel during Paris Fashion Week, cementing her reputation as a high-end model.
