When we found new photos of So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley yesterday, our eagle-eyed photo editor noticed that the pics were snapped at the QVC headquarters in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Is a Cat Deeley fashion line forthcoming? Maybe, say our sources at the shopping network, who confirm that Cat met with QVC execs to discuss designing a collection but insist that no deal has been struck. If she says yes, Cat will be in good company: Both stylist Rachel Zoe and designer Erin Fetherston are set to launch their QVC lines during Fashion Week.

It's been 11 long days since our last spotting of the First Lady of fashion and we've been waiting with bated breath for her next appearance. Michelle Obamadidn't disappoint yesterday with a triumphant return in red-a flawless, belted sheath of red to be exact-as host of the Medal of Freedom award ceremony at the White House. Beforehand, Michelle was spotted in a pleated day dress and cardigan that she wore earlier this year, reminding us why her wear-what-you-love style rule is something never to forget.

Exclusive: the Women of True Blood Shop at Walmart

Yesterday I sat down with Deborah Ann Woll-who plays Jessica, the newly created (and very hormonal) teenage vampire on HBO'sTrue Blood-to get the inside scoop on the delightfully shocking and paranormal show. Woll was so sweet and down to earth; it was hard to imagine her as a blood-sucking vampire! After a quick lesson on fang-popping, she divulged the secret behind her wardrobe of adorable sundresses-Walmart! The show's stylist Audrey Fisher believes that the rural Louisana-based characters wouldn't be convincing down-home girls if they were clad in designer duds. Her trick to getting Sookie and Jessica's sultry and sweet look: tailoring. Fisher nips and tucks the wallet-friendly clothes for a perfect fit that drives those southern boys (and vampires!) wild.

InStyleExclusive! Perez Hilton Dishes About His New Fashion Blog

InStyle Exclusive! Perez Hilton Dishes About His New Fashion Blog
Courtesy of

The Internet is buzzing about Perez Hilton's newest venture, a fashion blog dubbed that launches tomorrow morning. We called the gossip blogger to get the real scoop. "The site will focus on fashion, celebrities, models and magazines," explains Perez, who says we shouldn't expect to see those trademark doodles scribbled over runway photos. "I want it to have a new personality." Perez also maintains that he won't play favorites in the fashion world. "Every season is hit or miss, there's no one designer that's consistently good," he says of his philosophy on designers and the celebrities who wear their clothes. "I like covering red carpets because I get to critique individual pieces." So, can we expect to bump into him backstage during New York Fashion Week in September? "I'll be there for the MTV Video Music Awards and for my music tour," he says. "Maybe I will hit up the shows."

Fresh back from a trip to Victoria's Secret where I was fitted for one of the four newly debuted styles from Body by Victoria (I chose the Demi bra!), I am feeling the effects that a perfect-fit bra can have on a woman-confidence. While I couldn't help but envy Body models Marissa Miller, Emanuela de Paula, Lindsay Ellingson and Alessandra Ambrosio, I snapped out of it when I heard about their confidence-boosting contest. Starting today, tell Victoria's Secret what you love about your body and you could win a three-day trip for two to NYC, a shopping spree at their flagship store, along with a spa day and extra spending cash to boot! So go ahead and brag about your body, it's the only one you've got!

Jordin Sparks's

eyelashes got a little help yesterday on the set of the video for her new hit single "S.O.S. (Let The Music Play)." Her makeup artist Mylah G.

It was hard to miss the Juicy Couture-induced velour tracksuit trend that exploded in Hollywood with stars like Vanessa Hudgens, Eva Longoria and Jessica Simpson frequently snapped wearing them at airports and weekend outings alike. But this look has had more than its moment and has left us craving the next "feels like I'm wearing my pajamas" craze. Enter Bird by Juicy Couture, a more sophisticated streetwear line touting sleeker separates, but still with that signature Juicy Couture coziness. So trade your velour tracksuit for these harem-style cashmere pants and long, ombre cardigan the next time you head out to run errands.

Nicole Richie's Healthy Pregnancy Philosophy-Just Do it!

She's battled with body issues in the past, but soon-to-be second time mom Nicole Richie is embracing her baby bump and encouraging other women to do the same. "I really think that the pregnant body is beautiful and I think that there's a very limited time when you can show it off," Richie told us at the launch of her new maternity line for A Pea in The Pod. What's her secret to looking great? "I do a prenatal Pilates class with a girlfriend of mine and a trainer," she says. "I do it more for breathing purposes. Sometimes my legs get restless and I just like to really work them out." And though she follows an organic diet, Richie insists that she's not exactly counting calories. "I don't watch what I eat. I don't have time to think about that kind of stuff," she told us. "I think that you just need to do whatever you feel like doing when you're pregnant."

See how the stars shape up post-pregnancy!
