On the latest leg of her seemingly endless tour, Lady Gaga was spotted in India sporting an uncharacteristically demure pastel-swirled beehive with a one-shouldered Naeem Khan gown. Aqua-dyed strands and meat dress this was not. [Huff Po]
Vogue‘s André Leon Talley has been hard at work curating a fashion exhibition at the Savannah College of Art and Design’s new museum of art.

America’s Next Top Model—the reality competition series produced by Tyra Banks—is pulling out the big guns this season, with a panel of judges that includes fashion editor André Leon Talley and guest spots by designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Patricia Field, and Zac Posen. Last night, supermodel Karolina Kurkova stopped by the model mansion to share some healthy eating tips and life lessons she’s learned being on the catwalking front lines for ten years (after a brief hiatus, KK was back on the runway this season with turns at shows like Michael Kors, Roberto Cavalli, Jean Paul Gaultier, Elle Saab, and Hermès). Here, the 26-year-old Czech beauty chats with us about organic living, being a model mom, and why even a size zero can’t live on lettuce and water alone.
So how did you become involved with the show?
Tyra asked me to come on and talk about my experiences, and I decided it would be a good opportunity to share what I’ve learned. But I also wanted to inspire these girls and talk to them as their peer. So the filming was casual—I went to the model mansion without my heels on and hung out with them for three hours. We sat around in a circle and they asked me questions.
Was focusing on the topic of healthy eating something they brought up or is that more of a personal soapbox?
A lot of these girls don’t know how to take care of themselves. They have misconceptions that to be a size zero, you can’t eat or you can only have things that are really plain and boring. I definitely can’t live on lettuce and water! I’m very organic; I like to eat natural foods and exercise. You really have to take care of yourself from within. This was an important message for me to get across, especially when I heard that the girls were eating fried Oreos—and they wondered why their skin was so bad! When you eat well, you feel good, and that shows.
