Jingle Bells and Jingle Balls: Kmart really went balls out this year for its Joe Boxer Christmas commercial, featuring male models and their caroling crotches. If you need a less distracting gift your for man or yourself, this gift guide from Barney's Fashion Director Tomoko Ogura should do the trick.

Where Do Fashion People Go to College? It's a little hard to imagine our favorite editors as college students: starving, sleep-deprived and counting the days until "Thirsty Thursday." See where some of your favorite fashion industry personalities went to school and what they learned.

Lady Gaga Is the New Face of Versace: After weeks of speculation, Versace confirmed that the singer is fronting its spring campaign -- looking very Donnatella-esque, we might add.

WGSN and Stylesight to Merge: The world's two biggest trend forecasters are merging their U.S. operations, we learned exclusively this week.

Victoria And David Beckham Donate Their Clothes: The world's sexiest couple ever gave away boxes upon boxes of their clothes to a British Red Cross to help aid Philippines relief efforts. Unfortunately, you had to be in London on Friday to snag second-hand Beckham.

Do or Dior: Jennifer Lawrence has definitely caught the world's attention with her new pixie cut and propensity for doing shocking things while wearing Dior. But not everyone shared our affection for J.Law's nip-slips and pantless haute couture looks.

Miranda Kerr Swears She Didn't Photoshop Her Body: A conspicuously Photoshopped set of Instagram photos posted by the supermodel caused quite a controversy, but it was quickly forgotten after Armani confused two famous black actors.

Miley Cyrus Bleaches Her Brows: Just when we thought that she couldn't manage to look more like a naked alien... she proves us wrong.

Thom Browne to Launch Line of More Classically Tailored Suits: Conceding to commercial interests, Thom Browne's new line will forgo ankle-cropped pants in favor of tailoring more suitable for conservative office environments.

Kanye West Is Bound to Kim Kardashian: Literally. The rapper takes a motorcycle ride through the midwest with his topless fiancé in the video for his latest single, "Bound 2." We can't help but wonder what Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington thought of this very public display of affection when they went to his concert earlier this week in Brooklyn. Yes, Anna Wintour walked among us in Brooklyn.

Kendall Jenner Is a Signed Model: It's official (and no, we're not talking about her faux-relationship with Harry Styles): The Kardashian's little half sis has been signed by The Society Management.

Seth And Blair Get Engaged: A lot of things became "official" this week, including Adam Brody and Leighton Meester's engagement announcement. R.I.P Seth and Summer and Blair and Chuck.
