No Doubt rocker Gwen Stefani has teamed up with Urban Decay for a new collection of makeup that's set to hit stores and Urbandecay.com this November. According to the makeup brand's press release, Stefani was involved in all aspects of creating, formulating, and packing this new collection to ensure it fit with her personal style.

Stefani has long been known for her bold makeup looks, from bright pink lipstick, to dark eyeliner, and colorful eyeshadow. Her unique style makes her stand out from other artists, so it makes sense why UD would team up with the singer.

We're looking forward to seeing what this range will include, but with Stefani at the helm, it's bound to be a beautiful collection.

You can shop the Gwen Stefani | Urban Decay collection beginning November 22.

Kanye West debuted his Yeezy 2 New York Fashion Week collection at a warehouse in Chelsea. The spring/summer collection was oddly similar to his previous fall 2015 collection of Spanx-like pieces, and it made us wonder if West is being serious with his spandex couture, or if he's really trolling us?

The models were lined up by the color of their complexion. Fair-skinned models to the front, and dark-skinned models to the back. They each donned clothing that matched their skin color as well. West didn't really explain the reason for the obvious racial segregation - only noting that his show as a form of "art." Yeah, okay.

A drill sergeant was on hand to yell out commands to the models as they stood silently on the stage. No smiles were cracked, there wasn't any kind of joy or excitement. Some may say this presentation was a direct reflection of West's new life: bland, boring, and overall emotionless.

West is still trying his hand at being taken seriously in the world of fashion, but with each new collection, more scathing reviews trickle out from fashion insiders. Stick to music, Ye. Fashion designing isn't for everyone.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's high-end fashion label, The Row, has been sued by a former intern who claims she was forced to work more than 50 hours a week from May 2012 until September 2012. The former intern, Shahista Lalani alleges she would receive emails late at night from the technical designer, was forced to run errands, sew, cut patterns, create spreadsheets and do other tasks that she should have been paid for. Other past and present interns are being encouraged to join in on the suit as well.

Singer Taylor Swift just landed the cover of Vanity Fair's September "Style Issue". The "Bad Blood" singer dons a black blazer with matching black trousers and a white collard shirt. Her hair is long and full with loose waves framing her face, and the singer opted for a bold red lipstick and darkly rimmed eyes.

Photographed by Mario Testino, Swift sits in front of a piano, and the cover crowns her the "captain of the girl squad". The singer who was once the shy and awkward teenager amongst her peers is now a young adult with more than enough friends in the music, fashion and entertainment industries.

In the interview, Swift takes some time to talk about the Apple and Spotify issues she has been dealing with. You can read her full interview here.

Everyone loves a good pair of denim jeans, but in order to transition your wardrobe into a luxury closet full of high-end pieces, you must select a timeless silhouette and a medium to dark wash hue that won't go out of style. Also, make sure the legs aren't too tight or too flared. A sleek, straight leg finish will work best.

5. Black Leather Jacket

A black leather jacket will come in handy when the weather gets a little chilly, but aside from its ability to keep you warm, the leather jacket is a staple that never gets old. Stick to straight lines, and keep the adornments and zippers to a minimum

balenciaga won't renew alexander wang's contract
balenciaga won't renew alexander wang's contract

It's quite likely that Balenciaga won't renew Alexander Wang's contract. It isn't too surprising that things are coming to an end. Despite Wang completely revamping the taste of the brand's clientele, the Balenciaga fashion house has made a gradual shift from the vivid and feminine pieces of Nicolas Ghesquière, to the dark and gloomy pieces of Wang. Sales have soared under his helm, but in the end, Wang and Balenciaga did not click entirely.

Thankfully for Wang, he has his own eponymous fashion label to focus on, and we wouldn't be surprised if that was his main reason for wanting to leave his duties at Balenciaga. Wang's label has been gaining traction thanks to the designer's infectious personality and his genius marketing tactics.

Balenciaga won't renew Alexander Wang's contract, but the designer still has a growing fan base that craves his all-black ensembles, his trendy handbags, and his love for demolishing the status quo.

Who do you think Alexander Wang's successor will be at Balenciaga?

You've seen it everywhere; the Burberry poncho is this winter's must-have item because it's versatility, bold colors, and the ability to get this bad boy monogrammed!

With a $1,395 price tag on the Burberry website, this poncho is a style investment. Due to the multiple ways one can style this piece, I don't anticipate this item going out of style any time soon.
