Khroma Not a day goes by that the sisters Kardashian aren't in the news for one reason or another, and today is no different. What is different, however, is the fact that the news has less to do with the sisters' fashion choices and pregnancy buzz and more to do with pretty big legal issues surrounding their often troubled cosmetics line Khroma. After months of drama surrounding the line's name, it seems a judge isn't siding with the Kardashians. Before we explain, here's a refresher:

What is Khroma Beauty? Considering Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian are known for putting their name on pretty much anything, it was only a matter of time before they got into the makeup world. The line, called Khroma Beauty, was launched in late November 2012, and products have continued to roll out since then. Since the Kardashians are known for consistently wearing full makeup-even if they're going to the

"Miley and Liam are done; it's over. She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild. It became a problem for him," a source told Page Six.
This news comes a few weeks after Hemsworth, 23, was rumored to have been flirting at an Oscars after-party with "Harry Potter" alum Emma Watson, as well as with actress January Jones, fueling rumors that they had a fling (Jones didn't confirm or deny). In response to the rumors, Cyrus took to Twitter last week, stating: "I am so sick of LA. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn't call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining."
The 20-year-old former Disney starlet began dating "The Hunger Games" actor after meeting on the set of "The Last Song" in 2009.

Taylor Swift During the past year alone, it almost seemed like Taylor Swift covered the same amount of magazines as she had boyfriends (despite her conjecture that she's only dated two guys in 2012.) Really, everywhere we looked, there she was on another cover, with a new tagline to make us want to read all about her love life, her BFFS, and whatever other bit of gossip editors deemed cover-worthy.

To refresh your memory: Swift covered Vogue last March, Glamour in November, Harper's Bazaar and Cosmopolitan in December, and Elle last month. Even highbrow culture glossy Vanity Fair wanted a piece of Swifty, as she appeared on its cover this month, talking about how she keeps a framed photo in her house of the Kanye West interruption heard round the world.
Well, Women's Wear Daily is reporting that just because a big star like Taylor Swift appeared on a gazillion magazine covers, doesn't mean

The Hills Last night, Kristin Cavallari-the "Laguna Beach" alum who took over for Lauren Conrad on season 5 of "The Hills-sat down with E! host Giuliana Rancic for an exclusive interview where she discussed a wide array of topics from motherhood (she has a 7-month-old son with NFL star Jay Cutler) to reality TV. Although we all know "The Hills" was chock-full of staged plots, Cavallari went as far as to claim that producers took it to the next level-in the form of bribery via Birkin bags.

During season 5, a particular storyline centered around speculation that Cavallari was using cocaine and, according to the 26-year-old, a producer tried to pawn $10,000 Hermès Birkin bags off on the cast if they stated she was using drugs on camera.
Clearly, the girls in the cast took the bait, mentioning on-air that they were suspicious of Cavallari's behavior (which the tabloids

Charlize Theron We've long been fans of Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron's style-it's hard not to look good when you have a longstanding relationship with Dior-but now she might be taking her interest in fashion to the next level. The Oscar-winning actress is reportedly shopping around the idea of a women's fashion line focused on denim called Theron Jeans, in collaboration with her longtime stylist Leslie Fremar, which would sell in mass-market stores, according to the The Hollywood Reporter.

Given that celebrity stylists launching their own collections is somewhat of a trend these days (Kate Young's line with Target hits stores on April 14, and Jeanne Yang's Holmes & Yang-a joint effort with her A-list client Katie Holmes-is sold at Barneys), it makes sense that Fremar is jumping on the design train.
Fremar's dabbled in design before, collaborating on a

One of the biggest perks of advancements in social media is that celebrities can now connect with their fans on a much grander scale. Gone are the days of fan mail and waiting outside of a concert hoping to catch a glimpse of a performer. Nowadays you can send them a tweet or write on their Facebook wall, and if you're lucky, they'll respond. This has also presented an opportunity for fans to come together and form the 21st century's answer to fan clubs, and often times the celebrities themselves will christen the group with a name.
Everyone from Lady Gaga (who affectionately dubbed her super fans "Little Monsters") to controversy magnet Chris Brown (who always has "Team Breezy" defending his every action) has a staunch band of devotees who have used social media to form small subcultures with one another.
We couldn't help notice the rising trend, so we rounded up the most active fan bases and their names in the slideshow above.

Sky Ferreira When you think of mass retailer Forever 21, known for fast fashion at cheap price points, you probably wouldn't think of singer and New York it girl Sky Ferreira as its ideal spokesperson. Especially since the 20-year-old's most recent modeling gig was showcasing Saint Laurent's Pre-Fall 2013 collection in ads-the polar opposite of Forever 21 in every way.

However, the fast-fashion Mecca is releasing a "capsule festival" collection on March 22, and considering Ferreira is on the 2013 Coachella lineup, it makes perfect sense.
Shot by photographer David Roemer at the Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs (appropriately right down the road from the main stage at Coachella), the F21 campaign features Ferreira clad in crop tops, tie-dye dresses, and high-waisted shorts-otherwise known as the unofficial uniform of a celebrity at Coachella (Rihanna and Vanessa Hudgens are perfect

Benson is also upping her involvement in the fashion industry, appearing in a campaign for Faviana, which specializes in special-occasion items, such as prom dresses (perfect for her fans!)
