Life without The Hills suits Lauren Conrad well! Recently departed from her MTV “reality” series and now dedicating her time to a budding career as a fashion designer, LC has been front row at NY Fashion Week. She wore a lovely lime frock to the Nanette Lepore Show today and, in our opinion, has never looked prettier. Peep more pics below. [Photo: Splash News Online]

Hold up there, Katharine McPhee, what have you done to yourself?? (Yes, that really is Katharine McPhee, we could barely recognize her.) The American Idol singer, known for her gorgeous long brown locks has done something rash and cut them all off – we haven’t felt this way about a hair hacking since Felicity and we don’t like it one bit. McPhee was on hand at Macy’s in New York City to make an appearance, but we think she and her new hair will be showing up more often these days since she has an upcoming album scheduled for a January 2010 release.

From Celine Dion‘s backwards suit to J-Lo‘s shocking barely-there Versace gown to Britney Spears‘ nude glittery bodysuit, divas have nerves of steel when it comes to fashion risk-taking.

From the legendary Diana Ross to diva du jour Lady Gaga, we’ve rounded up the 25 most shocking, sexy, and glamorous divalicious ensembles in honor of VH1 Divas, airing Thursday at 9PM EST on VH1.

Divas like Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga and Rihanna are known for their style savvy as much as their attitudes, and often use the red carpet as their personal catwalk. Whether it’s some seriously avant-garde head gear or a low-cut, form-fitting party dress, celebrity divas ooze confidence in whatever they wear, working every moment in front of the cameras like it’s a fabulous photo-shoot.
Now it’s your turn! Do you have the style of a diva? Text us a photo of yourself from your phone to 80366 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lindsay Lohan looked pretty slick in a long black gown last night while attending the Marc Jacobs afterparty at Club Hiro in Manhattan, as part of Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. Lilo looked fresh and hydrated for a change. Not bad! Other celebrities including Madonna and boyfriend Jesus Luz, Courtney Love and daughter Frances Bean Cobain, Janet Jackson, and of course Marc Jacobs and fiance Lorenzo Martone, came out to celebrate the designer.

Avril Lavigne showed off her latest looks for her Abbey Dawn clothing line last night at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Celebrities Nicky Hilton and Tommy Hilfiger came out to see the “Complicated” singer’s punk-inspired line. Avril’s show included adult and teen models, who worked it on the runway to tunes from Avril’s albums.
As for the name of her funky line, Avril told TheFABlife, “I always really liked the name but I didn’t know what to do with it. I thought maybe one day, if I had a girl I would call her Abbey. I thought it was a really cool name but then I had a clothing line so I called it ‘Abbey.'”
So much for those divorce rumors! [Photos: Stephen Mao]
