+ Gwen Stefani at Exposure 2 Photo Exhibit
It’s been a while since we last saw much of Gwen Stefani…homegirl and the rest of No Doubt’s been laying low lately, workin’ hard until the release of their much anticipated Push and Shove album on September 25. This week, however, Stefani stepped out looking oh-so skater chic at the Exposure 2 photo exhibit in L.A. The L.A.M.B./Harajuku Lovers designer donned a simple button-down with a square-bottom tie, a pair of leather pants from Rag & Bone, cap-toe heels, oh – and that cherry-red pout, of course. <3!

Behold, Aitor Throup’s Shiva Skull Bag, made from tweed, trimmed with leather, and shaped exactly in the form of a human skull… Disturbing or dope?! The latter, we think! The Argentinian designer and artist, who is known for having an appeal for anatomy (having worked on projects like “Modular Anatomy” – showcased at Milan Fashion Week in ’08) and a taste for the unconventional, recently launched his first menswear line, which spotlights these military-inspired bags. This marks the designer’s first step in an eagerly anticipated menswear line – FINALLY, after six long years!

Damn, RiRi. The “Where Have You Been” songstress recently posed for the cover of yet another high-fashion magazine as well as a seven-page spread. The August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, which is set to hit the stands July 17, features Rihanna sizzling in a white hot gown by Calvin Klein. She also opened up to Harper’s a bit on her love life (and how she wants her butt back!). ”When I was in love, I fell so hard. The way it made me feel was priceless,” she said. “And in one blink of an eye, my whole life changed. Everything I think I knew was different. … I’m afraid of feeling that way again.” But the popstar’s also proven that she can make it with or without a man in her life – and that’s what counts.

Remember Chloe Sevigny’s gig with Miu Miu back in 1996? Well, 16 years later, the 37-year-old actress has landed yet another campaign with the Italian fashion house. Sevigny, who wore Miu Miu to this year’s Met Ball, will be fronting Miu Miu’s Fall/Winter 2012 ad campaign, modeling the collection’s pinstripes, bold ’60s prints, and colorful menswear-inspired pieces!

We know, we know… We’re sick of all this talk of TomKat too. Like, the girl just needed her space – faaar away from Tommy. But instead of sulking around the city in post-breakup trauma (even in the midst of all the pesky paparazzis and Scientologists), Katie Holmes has been better than ever! In fact, the former actress is preparing to debut the spring collection of Holmes & Yang, a brand she co-designs with partner and long-time stylist Jeanne Yang, at NYFW this September… her first runway show EVER. Looks like a break up really can be the best thing that could happen to you!
