+ Already the face of one of their fragrances, actress Amanda Seyfried was tapped for Givenchy's Fall/Winter ad campaign, which also features Carine Roitfeld (who styled the ads) and her daughter Julia.
+ Speaking of Givenchy, beneath her Riccardo Tisci dress, Jessica Chastain wore matching Spanx in order to avoid becoming another actress at the Cannes Film Festival to experience an embarrassing crotch flash.
+ Helping out brides who want to wed on a budget, Target has announced a wedding dress collection priced between $99.99-$129.99, featuring an array of styles and cuts for sizes 2 through 28. The retail giant will also offer bridesmaids dresses in their online store.
+ Having already been at the center of a sexual discrimination lawsuit in Tokyo, Prada is now being pressued by The High Commissioner for Human Rights at the U.N. to cease its egregious practices against female employees.
While the Billboard Music Awards are no Met Gala, one would hope that the celebrities would at least aspire to such style for the event. Judging from the various frocks that graced Billboard's blue carpet, however, the musically-inclined celebs failed to put much effort into this awards show. Whether it was the Las Vegas heat or some overextended stylists (between the Met Gala, Cannes, and this, who can blame them?), the fashion at the Billboard Music Awards fell short with a few good looks and way too many shine-inducing materials.
The Good: American Idol judge Nicki Minaj, known for her colorful and over-the-top costumes, scaled back her look by opting for a red number which made her cleavage take center stage and yet still managed to look classy.
Country pop singer Shania Twain showed up in a silver-white Pavoni by Mikael D gown looking like a modern-day Greek goddess.
Hayden Panettiere - who currently stars in the country music television drama Nashville - opted for black like many others in attendance, but her simple, sleek floor-length dress was the best of them all.

Eva Longoria suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the Cannes Film Festival. The Desperate Housewives star accidentally revealed much more than she bargained for while walking the red carpet at the Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian) film screening on Saturday night.
Eva, who looked stunning in a pastel green gown complete with a plunging side-split, hitched up her dress to avoid the puddles, flashing much more than just her legs in the process - since she had decided to go commando. The 38-year-old actress appeared unaware of the incident and was happy to pose for the cameras in the rain.
She later enthused on her Twitter page, "My favorite red carpet of the whole year!"
Eva also shared a series of snaps of her fellow celebrity L'Oreal beauty ambassadors Jane Fonda, Cheryl Cole, Megan Gale and Doutzen Kroes, who all braved the bad weather for the annual film festival in the South of France.
+ Considering she has both the face and body for high fashion, it's no wonder that actress Rooney Mara has signed with Dior to lend her face to their Down Town fragrance campaign. Naturally, her face is so gorgeously distracting that it's barely apparent that the photo is an ad for a perfume.
+ Model Doutzen Kroes imitates Angelina Jolie's famous 2010 Oscar dress, showing off some serious leggage at the Cannes Film Festival in Atelier Versace (albeit, looking somewhat like a superhero).
+ Despite her doctor's orders to avoid tight-fitting shoes, a very pregnant Kim Kardashian was spotted desperately trying to squeeze into her Givenchy heels.
+ Harper's Bazaar features supermodel Christy Turlington on next month's cover, which notes that she's still fabulous at 44 - as if we still didn't need reminding since she turned 40.
Kim Kardashian is probably one of the most scrutinized pregnant celebrities these days, with folks all over the internet checking paparazzi photos for her latest maternity look. Her Met Gala appearance last Sunday was no exception, though I'm starting to truly believe from this red carpet look that she sparks and embraces such attention.
Dressed from neck to toe in a Givenchy floral number with matching gloves, the reality star looks like she could blend right into some tacky wallpaper or a sofa (a far cry from the party's punk theme).
But the head creative behind Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci, comes to Kim's defense, crowning her “the most beautiful pregnant woman I dressed in my career.” Not sure if that's much of an achievement, considering he doesn't seem to dress many pregnant women at all!
Tisci also explained his decision to envelop the expectant mother in roses: “To me, pregnancy is the most beautiful thing in the world, and when you celebrate something, you give people flowers.”

Nicole Richie has dyed her hair gray. The 31-year-old fashion designer showed off her newly-silver tresses at the Met Ball at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art last night, sticking to the Costume Institute Gala's Punk: Chaos to Couture theme by matching her updo and white Topshop column dress with a red and gold manicure, multiple gold earrings and a dark burgundy lip.
Nicole - who has five-year-old Harlow and three-year-old Sparrow with husband Joel Madden - had earlier teased fans about her change of look, posting pictures of hair extensions lying on a bush and a bowl of dye onto her Instagram account. Alongside the pictures, she wrote, "Even the bushes have extensions! Happy Met Ball Monday!
Hair Time #MetBall (sic)"
And the Fashion Star host wasn't the only star to change their hair for the annual fashion extravaganza.
+ This month's latest Elle cover model, Nicki Minaj did her best impression of a vapid fashion journalist humorously asking all the wrong questions to herself.
+ Madonna made a statement with her boy scouts outfit when she presented a GLAAD award to Anderson Cooper. In a nearly 12-minute long speech, the singer lashed out at the scouts organization for its gay ban.
+ Though Harmony Korine's latest film Spring Breakers doesn't even hit theaters until Friday, there has been enough buzz generated about it to get Opening Ceremony to collaborate with the filmmakers on an exclusive summer collection.
+ Kim Kardashian has been spotted in many tight-fitting outfits, despite her very pregnant state; however, the reality star was spotted at the premiere of her new movie Temptation in a chic black lace look appropriate for an expectant mother.
+ It's been rumored that Kate Upton will be covering the June issue of Vogue, which would be her first time on the front of the American fashion glossy.
"There were a few issues... I still love the [Alexander McQueen] dress itself but I should have worn a bra and I should have just had simple beachy hair and less makeup. Then, it would have worked as I wanted it to - a little bit of punk at the Oscars."
- Gwyneth Paltrow admits she has some regrets about the dress she wore to the Academy Awards in 2002.

It's one thing to be bold with your film roles. It's a whole other thing to be bold with your style - especially when your dress screams, "Too much bold fashion can be a bad thing!"
Such is the case with Ashley Benson, who wore this Frankenstein version of the little black dress for the premiere of her latest film, Spring Breakers, where she plays a teen who becomes involved in the crime world to help fund her vacation. While some of the aspects of the dress alone may have been interesting - its asymmetrical sleeve, the open neckline - mashing them all together with a strange, sheer fabric over a V-shaped pencil skirt is a little too daring.

Lindsay Lohan has been accused of destroying a $1,750 designer dress she was allowed to borrow.
The Liz & Dick star allegedly cut off the bottom end of the stunning nude-and-silver beaded fringe gown by Theia that she wore to the amfAR Gala in New York on February 6 - which was lent to her after her Scary Movie 5 co-star Charlie Sheen begged a top stylist to help her find a dress - because it ripped after the event.
A source revealed that when the 26-year-old actress returned the gown it was half its original length, and told USMagazine.com, "She said that the dress had ripped [at a club after the fundraiser] - she couldn't possibly wear it like that - so her stylist friend went to the club bouncer and requested some scissors to repair the torn part of the dress. But what bouncer has scissors? She turned it into a mullet! Only a fashiony person would do that! She's out of control and behaving really badly."
The dress was lent to Lindsay after her friend Charlie personally called celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch and asked him to dress Lindsay for the charity event and he told the fashion expert he would even split the bill 50/50 if necessary.
