>> The past Labor Day weekend may have been long and lazy for some, but for the past week in Venice, the Film Festival red carpet has buzzing with jaw-droppingly good dresses. Natasha Poly made an appearance or two, Gwyneth Paltrow turned up in custom pale pink Prada, and Keira Knightley brought printed Mary Katrantzou to the game. Our favorites so far in the slideshow.

>> American Zara fans rejoice; now there's a whole new way to get your affordable-fashion fix. Like the retailer on Facebook now, and at 6 pm tonight you'll be able to shop the website before anyone else.
Otherwise, starting tomorrow, Sept. 7, the entire range of Zara goodies — including men's, women's, and children's — will be available to buy on the brand's website, Zara.com. The brand is offering free standard shipping to all 50 states, meaning Zara-philes from Florida to Alaska will finally be able to get their hands on the same great pieces available in the brick-and-mortar stores. In anticipation of the e-commerce launch, we've rounded up the shoes, bags, jackets, and dresses we can't wait to snatch up.
>> Spring 2012 show season is just a couple of short days away, and over the weekend, we checked in with designers like Prabal Gurung, Chris Benz, and Helmut Lang's Nicole and Michael Colovos to see what tunes they had on repeat — while putting the finishing touches on their collections. Could some of these songs appear on show soundtracks — or perhaps provide a window into the final product? We'll see soon enough; Joseph Altuzarra named a film soundtrack as his go-to sound this season, and he's said in the past that movies tend to be the starting point for designing his collections.
