Ohmigod Alert: InStyle.com rounded up picturesof your favorite Twilightstars from a time before they were famous-high school!

First Look: Jessica Simpson's Travel Collection

What's Right Now - First Look: Jessica Simpson's Travel Collection
flynetpictures; Courtesy of The Jessica Simpson Collection

She's a frequent traveler, so it makes perfect sense that Jessica Simpson is adding a line of luggage to her eponymous fashion label. What inspires the celebrity designer? "My dream is for my brand to be like Ralph Lauren," Simpson told us before she jetted off to Japan to film the VH-1 docu-series The Price of Beauty. "I try to design all-American, classic things that aren't just trends but that you will use again and again." Simpson will unveil the collection (as well as a new line of lingerie) at major retailers and on jessicasimpsoncollection.com just in time for holiday travel this November. We're totally on board with the anchor print, which ranges from a $130 tote to a $250 wheeled duffel.

It seems Blake Lively took a cue from the girls at the Chanel Haute Couture summer show by choosing a white nail polish for her manicure. If you're doubtful about trying this seemingly stark trend, maybe a quote from Coco Chanel herself will persuade you? "With white, one can never put a foot wrong," said the style icon. Looks like you may need to try it on your toes too! Chanel's Blanc Petale is a limited edition nail color so hurry and snatch yours up today.

What Do You Think of Michelle Obama's Shorts?

What Do You Think of Michelle Obama's Shorts?

Michelle Obama

is making waves again for showing some skin and it's not about her arms, but her gorgeous gams. The First Lady's choice to wear mid-thigh length shorts while vacationing last week spurred a Today show debate between Mary Tomer of Mrs-O.org and Washington Post fashion editor Robin Givhan. Tomer finds her shorts completely "appropriate" for vacationing at the Grand Canyon, but Givhan argues that when exiting Air Force One the First Lady should be prepared for the usually "formal photographs."

The Wonder Girls have been South Korea's hottest girl group ever since their 2007 debut. Now that the Girls have joined The Jonas Brothers on tour, they're starting to make waves in America. Yubin, Sohee, Sun, Mimi and Yenny often rock a coordinated retro look-which reminds us of The Supremes' Motown style-but we've also spotted them in edgy pieces by Marc Jacobs and Lauren Moshi, not surprising considering that they count Beyonce, Twiggy and Audrey Hepburn among their style icons.

Ahoy, matey! Kate Moss pulls rank on a crew of sailors in Longchamp's Fall 2009 ad campaign. The behind-the-scenes video from the set reveals a maroon-lipped Moss and model-in-crime Daria Werbowy getting down with a slew of hunky sailors, not to mention tables full of Longchamp's new covetable fall tote-the Gatsby. Our favorite scene? The surly sailors holding up the famously waif-like Moss with the ease of a mast and sail.
