H&M Between the news that Beyoncé-yes, Beyoncé!-is set to vamp it up as H&M's new face, and the groundbreaking fact that the Swedish mega-retailer is releasing the names of its factories (a first for a fashion label), we kinda thought the fast-fashion brand had reached its monthly quota in terms of big announcements. Turns out, there's another bit of info to get psyched about: H&M is launching a collection inspired by the off-duty style of four of the fashion's top models, Joan Smalls, Daphne Groeneveld, Lindsey Wixon, and Liu Wen.

According to Vogue UK, "The New Icons" range is set to hit H&M stores in April, and includes versatile-if a bit predictable-model off-duty staples like black leather jackets, lace mini skirts and frayed denim cut-offs, combined with a heavy focus on urban streetwear accessories, such as low-heeled ankle boots, leather necklaces,

Beyoncé Back in January, the Twitterverse was buzzing that superstar Beyoncé would be the latest face of H&M. One of the loyal members of 31-year-old singer's entourage (or Beyontourage) tweeted, "First day of trial in the Bahamas! H&M all set … go," along with photos of Beyoncé on a beach. The tweet was immediately deleted.

Now, it's been confirmed that there was in fact truth to the rumors, as Bey is officially the face of H&M's summer campaign, which reads "Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M," a reference to her upcoming tour beginning April 15. "In the campaign Beyoncé is wearing the key pieces from H&M you need for life in the sun this summer," H&M's head of design Ann-Sofie Johansson said in a release. "What makes these pieces even more special is that Beyoncé herself had input in the designs, and they are full of her own personal style."
If you're at all surprised by the pairing, don't be-Bey has a

Beauty Habits We all know that fashion can be a lot of things: exciting, transformative, communicative, and most importantly: fun. That said, there are some facets of fashion that-over time-could be damaging our bodies and our overall well-being (yeah, we know: not so fun). We're talking about the actual things that we put on our bodies, as well as mind-sets we adopt for the sake of "looking the part," which often means you're not actually channeling legitimate style so much as you're regurgitating what's "now" as dictated by hoards of other people.

Anna Wintour/Kim Kardashian It's long been said that Anna Wintour doesn't look favorably upon Kim Kardashian. Last May, Kardashian was notably absent from the annual Met Gala-despite her boyfriend Kanye West's attendance-which some claimed was due to the legendary Vogue editor shunning the reality starlet from the event (the Oscars of fashion, some say), making it so that Kim couldn't even buy her way in.

Now, rumors of Wintour's distaste are firing up again, with a report in last week's Star (via Daily Mail) that claims West has been "begging" the Vogue editor in chief to feature his girlfriend on the cover of the illustrious magazine. It's a stretch, sure, but Kim has been embraced by other high-profile fashion glossies, bagging Vogue Italia and W covers.
According to sources, though, West's persistence has been in vain, as Wintour reportedly brushed off the requests and declared

Kate Middleton While some people struggle immensely with maternity dressing and finding flattering ways to complement their changing figures (we're looking at you, Kim Kardashian), others don't have that issue. Case in point: Kate Middleton.

The always stylish Duchess of Cambridge stepped out yesterday for a St. Patrick's Day parade in Aldershot, England alongside her husband Prince William clad in a look you may recognize from before she was pregnant. In fact, she wore the green Emilia Wickstead coat exactly a year prior at the same parade. The only change for her most recent take on the festive look was that she covered up more-opting for tights, a turtleneck, and gloves.
Middleton also got her heel (which was likely by her favorite designer L.K. Bennett) stuck in a grate at one point, eliciting concern from onlookers. Naturally, the princess laughed it off and carried on with grace.

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.

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
