Lady Gaga's Leaked Vogue CoverS

  • Lady Gaga is of course under contract with Armani to wear Armani at high-profile events, but she's understood to be considering sporting at least one Mugler dress at the Grammy Awards. Because Nicola Formichetti is reviving Mugler, and Gaga wants to support her friend. She'll probably change outfits like eighteen times that night anyway; Armani will get its money's worth. [HL]
  • Kate Moss is wearing the ring that Jamie Hince may have given her as a token of their engagement! It's a diamond! She's wearing it on the ring finger of her left hand! This means a summer wedding, obviously. Also, if you are so credulous as to believe the Daily Mail, their reporter spoke exclusively with Moss's dad, who says Hince asked his permission to propose. [Daily Mail]
  • We're of the opinion that if you want to make a music video that basically re-enacts some of David LaChapelle's most famous work, you should maybe...hire David LaChapelle? Not Rihanna, apparently. [Radaronline]
  • Tom Ford said he wouldn't be doing any more fashion shows, but, whoops: There he is on the schedule at London Fashion Week, with a presentation for editors of "international monthly magazines" only, thanks. [CQ]
  • Elle Fanning appears in a new video for Rodarte. Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy paid the costs of production. LVMH has been rumored to be interested in buying a stake in the brand, but the multinational says its only interest is in getting original content for its site Nowness. [WWD]
  • Richie Rich is holding his fashion show at the Hammerstein Ballroom this season, and he's opening it up to the public: For only $25-$35, you too could have a seat at the Richie Rich circus. Except, it probably won't be a seat — someone else will be sitting in it when you finally get in after spending ten minutes trying to get the attention of the door girl, like the show is some hot night club or something. And the person in your seat won't move, or acknowledge you, and nor will the venue staff. And they won't tell you about the $10 mandatory coat-check fee until you're inside. And an hour after the show was scheduled to start, you'll still be jammed in Standing Room behind a lady with nine-foot-high hair, you'll be sipping a water that cost $5, and then a drag queen will probably stomp on your foot so hard you will fear she's broken a metatarsal, and she'll mouth "Sorry" but in that way that says she's actually totally not, so you will say "Fuck this!" and limp over to coat check and argue until you get your $10 back and huff off out into the snow and going forward, you will be of the opinion that to go to a Richie Rich show, Richie Rich should have to pay you. True fashion story. [FashionIndie]
  • Jamie Wolf, who designed Natalie Portman's conflict-diamond-free, recycled-precious-metal engagement ring, is a former ballet dancer and colleague of Portman's fiancé, Benjamin Millepied. She even appears briefly in Black Swan, as a dancer. Wolf has been designing her jewelry collection for eight years. [Fashionista]
  • Today's Page Six, on doggie drama at Thakoon Panichgul's design studio: "Staffers there were overheard grumbling that Stevie, the designer's Yorkshire terrier-Chihuahua mix, has become quite snappy of late. There was even an unverified rumor that the dog bit one of the brand's interns on the backside. Stevie is affectionately named after singer Stevie Nicks, and sources say the pooch is the apple of Panichgul's eye." [P6]

  • LOVE editor Katie Grand, on the magazine's "androgyny" issue: "I wanted to work with transsexuals but to do something very glamorous and decadent - full of fashion. We have interviewed Riccardo Tisci and Marc Jacobs — both of whom have a huge interest in transsexuals and cross-dressing." [Vogue UK]
  • Ajak Deng is on the latest cover of i-D, and my God does she look amazing. [TLF]
  • For Future Claw, Cindy Crawford recreated some of her most iconic editorial shots from her long and varied career. [Future Claw]
  • The supposed Victoria's Secret/"high fashion" divide continues to be proven a fiction: Candace Swanepoel is on the new cover of Vogue Italia. [Fashionologie]
  • David Koma may have just created the most limited-edition of all limited-edition designer/mass collaborations, ever. His Topshop collection comprises just five styles, and only thirty of each piece will be made, says the store. No word on prices. [Vogue UK]
  • In the quarter just ended, Elizabeth Arden's profits were up a whopping 61% over last year's. [WWD]
  • Estée Lauder's during the same period rose some 34%. [WWD]
  • We've mentioned these newfangled articulated robotic dress forms before — supposedly, they'll make online shipping easier by automatically re-sizing themselves to our own personalized measurements, thus cutting down the risk of making an ill-fitting purchase on the Internet. Wouldn't it possibly be simpler to just take a leaf out of Zappos' book and offer free return shipping? Take it from those of us who've been sewing since the age of 13: Most dress forms — especially the resizable ones — don't do a very good job impersonating an actual human body. [Independent]
  • Christian Lacroix illustrated a children's book about his life. How to explain "Bernard Arnault sold my persistently unprofitable label, and then some chain of Duty Free stores called the Falic Group fired me and all my staff, and now owns my very name" to kids? [Vogue UK]
  • Isabel Marant's red heels with the bow on the side of the toe got knocked off. [Fashionista]
