Style Wars: Lauren Conrad Vs. Kristin Cavallari

They may not be on the same show anymore, but rivals Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari still have to come to the same events and compete for camera time. At last night’s VMAs, Cavallari stuck to the shiny theme that so many others were enamored by (en-armored by? ‘Cause it looks like — nevermind), going for a tight disco ball minidress, while LC opted for a demure “I’m totally more mature than that lying skank” look. Was LC’s look too blah, or was Kristin just one of the many sequined starlets? Who turned more heads before heading back to “The Hills?” And most importantly, can you feel the rain on your skin?

The 10 Worst Dressed Stars At The MTV VMAs


Not even piles of money and stylists can prevent fashion disasters, and the red carpet at the VMAs is one of the riskier events where oh-so-much can go wrong. Judging from last night’s showing, there were disasters a’plenty. Whose outfits weren’t up to snuff? Let’s have a look.

EXCLUSIVE: Jon Gosselin To Debut “Gosselin Gear” Clothing Line


Who needs Ed Hardy? Jon Gosselin is going to start his own clothing line. “I’m doing a line called “Gosselin Gear,” Jon told The FABlife while hanging out at the Hotel on Rivington House of Hype post-VMA party.  As for that rumored line with Ed Hardy owner Christian Audigier? “I think Christian just used me to get publicity,” Jon told us.

How about the rest of his life? “I’ll be officially divorced in a couple days,” Jon said gladly. Although he and Kate Gosselin are hammering out custody issues, Jon was in good spirits and also confirmed that things with him and girlfriend Hailey Glassman are “great.” [Photo: Getty Images]

Kelly Clarkson Rips Kanye West A New One


Kelly Clarkson may be low key and chill most of the time, but she can rip you a new one if she wants to – which is just what the singer has done to hip-hop drama king Kanye West. After last night’s Kanye-Taylor Swift fiasco, Kelly took to her blog to take the guy to task for ruining Tay’s big moment. Check out her rant below, and tune in to VH1 Divas this Thursday, September 17th at 9PM EST to see her awesome sass in action. [Photos: GettyImages]

Says Kelly:

Dear Kanye,

What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like shit. I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty shitty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways. It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my asshole ex that cheated on me over you…which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you. The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up. Is it that important, really??

I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her…so why can’t you be?? I’m not even mad at you for being an asshole…I just pity you because you’re a sad human being.

On a side note, Beyonce has always been a class act and proved again tonight that she still is. Go TEXAS!!

Taylor Swift, you outsell him ….that’s why he’s bitter. You know I love your work! Keep it up girl!


Style Wars: Beyonce Vs. Jennifer Lopez

Short is the name of the game, judging from the red carpet looks of Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez. Both divas went for thigh-high dresses to show off their gams, with strategically cut out neck and shoulder detail, but where Beyoncé opted to stand out in fire engine red, J. Lo went for soft and satiny earth tones.  There are certain elements of both dresses that we’re not loving – B, what’s up with the kangaroo pouch? Jenny, whats the deal with your criss-crossing baggy sleeves? But what do you think, are they rocking the short look, or should they have kept looking for dresses without so much bunching?

Style Wars: Taylor Swift Vs. Katy Perry

Was there anyone not rocking the sparkles at the VMAs? Check out the red carpet looks of Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, both of whom opted for bedazzled dresses in very different styles. Taylor went for a more old Hollywood, glamorous Grecian style that exposed her back and statuesque figure, while Katy rocked a shorter, spunkier (dare we say, more figure skater-y) look that exposed a little of everything. Both played up their assets, but did one shine more brightly than the other?

Style Wars: Shakira Vs. Pink

Not all of our Style Wars are so easy to put together, but in the case of Shakira and Pink‘s red carpet outfits at the 2009 MTV VMA’s, it was pretty cut and dry. The two singers showed up to the awards – OMG – wearing the exact same dress. They accessorized themselves differently, but we’re thinking that right now, there are two stylists being reamed out for not checking around to see what everyone was wearing. So whose look kicked more black-sequined butt, Pink’s cool, spiky-haired high heeled vibe, or Shakira’s Pretty Woman-esque go-go boots and clutch?

EXCLUSIVE: Lance Bass: “The VMAs Are This Weekend?”


Although in 2001 Lance Bass and his N’SYNC bandmates swept the MTV Video Music Awards and had a standout performance with Michael Jackson, Lance doesn’t really seem to care about the awards show anymore.

“I don’t even know who’s going to the VMAs. I don’t know whose nominated. I didn’t even know the VMAs were this weekend,” Lance told TheFABlife while dining at the Hotel on Rivington’s Levant East at Thor House of Hype Directors’ dinner last night.

So sad, Lance has no love for MTV. [Photo: Getty Images]


Rihanna’s Pre-VMA Evening


She may be up for a VMA for Best Male Video with the “Life Your Life” video she did with T.I., but that didn’t stop Rihanna from having a little fun the night before the MTV Video Music Awards. Last night, Rihanna dined at the House of Hype’s directors’ dinner at the Hotel on Rivington in New York’s Lower East Side. The Rivington’s Levant East of Thor restaurant served up special dishes for guests who also included Pink ,who took a corner table and sipped red wine throughout the evening, and husband Carey Hart, and Lance Bass, who dined while listening to tunes spun by DJ Manero.

After dinner, which ended at approximately midnight, Rihanna, who again was dressed head-to-toe in all black, and her entourage went upstairs to the Rivington’s famous three-level penthouse suite, where a post-dinner party was already in full swing. Her group took their private table by the window which was stocked with plenty of Grey Goose and Red Bull. Bodyguards protected the singer while she laughed and sipped drinks with her pals and stayed mostly sitting on the couch. She later went upstairs to the rooftop which features a jacuzzi and 360 degree view of Manhattan and looked out at the city while texting on her cell phone. At 1:50 RiRi left the party through a private exit door. She couldn’t stay out TOO late, she does have a little MTV Video Music Awards ceremony to attend tonight! [Photos: Getty Images]
