The ever-secretive Tom Ford (who, as it happens, is approaching Fall ’13 much less secretively with a full-on fashion show during London Fashion Week in February) has given Style.com a first look at his Spring ’13 campaign. As in seasons past, Ford lensed the ads himself. With an air of retro futurism, the shots are sleek, sexy, and sophisticated—not unlike the mirror dress and gold bondage shoes (yes, the same pair Anne Hathaway wore in vegan-friendly black to her Les Mis premiere) Karlina Caune dons in the ad. The men’s images feature Simon Van Meervenne sprawled out in a silver suit. Ford’s spring campaign will launch this week on his website, and hit magazines in March.

In case you missed the Tweet heard ’round the world, tonight’s Mugler show will have a very special runway model. You guessed it—creative director Nicola Formichetti’s best client, Lady Gaga, who also directed the show’s music. (She’ll debut a new track, “Government Hooker.”) [@LadyGaga]
Rachel Zoe, who got her client Anne Hathaway Oscar-host-ready, lets us in on the secrets, including that you’ve got to be able to dance as an Oscar host. She and Hathaway put her custom Brian Atwood shoes to the test in several run-throughs to be sure they were soft-shoe ready. [EW via Styleite]
Speaking of the Oscars, it was a pretty great night for The King’s Speech. So no wonder that the world is clamoring to get all of its regal regalia in order—a new auction will sell off some of the bags and lingerie (!) of Wallis Simpson, for whom Edward VIII abdicated, leaving the throne to his stuttering brother, George VI.
