The Stuart Weitzman showroom was teeming with editors this week eyeing Resort 2012--a mixed medley of braided lanyard wedges, red, white, and blue patent flats, and bejeweled stilettos. Teen Vogue's Shiona Turini bopped to the reggae tunes of the in-house DJ. NYLON's Michelle Reneau tweeted about the bite-sized muffins while Elle's Kyle Anderson eyed the lucite platforms. Meanwhile, Chic couldn't decide between the neutral crackid brogues or the olive raffia oxfords. Peep a couple pairs in our Gallery!

Your lunch hour is about to get a whole lot sweeter tomorrow, thanks to Fresh: the positively delicious bod and beauty line is launching their "Kiss & Tell" campaign with an adorable pink pout-strewn bus dispensing free (yes, you read that correctly...gratis!) tubes of Sugar Lip Treatment in two Manhattan 'hoods tomorrow. Midtown will get its moisturizing fix of the buttery balm, which retails for $22.50, near Bryant Park on Sixth Avenue between 41st and 42nd Streets from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If you're in the Union Square vicinity, take your iced latte with a side of Sugar when the beauty-laden bus pops over to Broadway between 18th and 19th Streets from 4 to 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, the Fresh ride heads south to the corner of Crosby and Spring Streets between noon and 3:30 p.m., followed by Bleecker and Perry, right outside Magnolia Bakery (talk about a sugar high!) from 4 to 7:30 p.m. The primp-mobile is pimped out with a social media center for tweeting, posting and entering the Kiss & Tell Facebook contest, as well as a chance to try the full Sugar Lip Experience--we're talking exfoliation and all. In addition, send a postage-paid postcard or e-card waxing poetic about your Fresh-ened up lips to a friend for them to receive a free treatment with purchase. Talk about beautiful karma. Pencil this one into your Moleskine or iCal, chicettes!

Where does he find the time? With the David Webb Fall 2011 photo shoot (styled by Carine Roitfeld) under his belt, photog-about-town Terry Richardson dined and dashed with yet another famous face this week--Jennifer Aniston. The Horrible Bosses actress, avec new-ish beau Justin Theroux, hit up a downtown eatery on Thompson Street in Soho with the shutterbug yesterday. On the menu? Plenty of PDA. Bon appetit!

Fascinating footage of Karl Lagerfeld taking a photo of Lady Gaga on his white-gold iPad has emerged! You may recall that Gaga famously said that she would only pose nude for the Kaiser or David LaChapelle, so when then this match made in heaven recently appeared on the French show Grand Journal, he told her: "I hope you don't undress here." Gaga considered removing her bra, but kept things PG, and simply hopped on the table and made funny faces for the camera. They were born that way.

Tavi Fashion: "I have certain things like accessories that I interchange throughout the day like boys and stickers and things."
