Los Angeles-based models-turned-fashion-designers Anine Bing and Katheryn Rice both count Alessandra Ambrosio and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley among those stepping out in their clothes, and each captures a take on effortless West Coast style. But the similarities end there. Both designers "understand what the cool girls like, in a different way. But it's the same girl," says Jeannie Lee, owner of Satine boutique on West 3rd Street, which carries both lines. Hard rock Danish-born Bing's eponymous label (

Plenty of publications, including In Style and People, reference the fashion on "Gossip Girl" in an attempt to satisfy the style-hungry who pine for a floral gown worn by Blair or the glittery black eyeliner greased around Jenny's eyes. In addition, there are a number of websites that dedicate their content to tracking what the cast wears, citing the specific designer, cost of each item and links to retail sites. Among them: ? Perhaps the most comprehensive website on all things worn by the Gossip Girls.

KIGALI, Rwanda - Twenty years ago Monday, the state of Rwanda set about trying to hack itself out of existence. Starting on April 7, 1994, Hutu extremists, in a premeditated 100-day campaign, systematically butchered close to 1 million Tutsis - three-quarters of all those in the country - as well as moderate Hutus, driving countless more into exile. Yet two decades later, Rwanda is very much alive; indeed, in many respects, it's thriving. But it remains a confounding place. Visit the country today and you find a remarkably peaceful and well-ordered land.

You gotta love watching the Olympics - for the sports, of course, but also for the style. Uniforms are designed primarily for function, and ostensibly they level the playing field. Photo Gallery: Best 2012 Olympic style moments But they actually ratchet up the competition sartorially, as teams try to intimidate and outdo one another using only the skimpy canvas of a swimsuit, a leotard or a pair of shorts, and having to dress within the confines of official Olympic brand sponsors.

Dee Dee Penny has a real penchant for black vintage garb, such as high-waisted glamazon shorts and sheer mesh tops, and second-skin leather jackets and mini-dresses. It's a gothic-meets-go-go-girl look that signals a readily identifiable aesthetic for Penny - and one that might work well for an indie pop band. Enter the Dum Dum Girls. Penny (born Kristin Gundred in San Leandro, Calif.) created the Girls as a solo project in 2008. Now she's the fashionable frontwoman of a five-member group, comprising drummer Sandra Vu, bassist Malia James and guitarists Jules Medeiros and Andrew Miller, on tour to promote their third studio album, "Too True," released on Sub Pop Records in January.

The combination of sandals and socks has long been seen as a major footwear faux pas. And, as recently as last year when British department store Debenhams polled 1,500 customers on what they felt was the most egregious of all fashion offenses, sandals with socks ranked No. 1 - beating out platform shoes for men and scrunchies. But proving that fashion is often wildly unpredictable, wearing sandals with socks is no longer a fashion misstep. This season, it's suddenly a trend embraced by celebrities and fashion industry insiders who are pairing their Birkenstocks, clogs and even open-toed high-heel sandals with ankle-length socks.

Fans are counting the days until the return of Fox's "The Mindy Project" on April 1. What's next after the turbulence-induced airplane make-out session between fellow OB-GYN Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) and the lovelorn Dr. Mindy Lahiri? And, of course, they'll clamor to see what series star Mindy Kaling is wearing. That's because Kaling's character, with her everywoman figure, is TV's unlikely new style star in her signature jumble of contrasting prints and almost-clashing colors.

Do you ever find yourself running out of the house with wet hair? That's apparently become a good thing, right in line with a beauty trend seen recently on pop stars and in edgy fashion editorials. A new hairstyle dubbed the "wob" (for wet bob) has reached "It" hair status after Beyoncé sported a wet-looking bob-length 'do at the Grammy Awards in February. Miley Cyrus also had damp-looking tresses on the March cover of W magazine, as did Sofia Coppola on the February cover of Italian Vogue.
