Lady Gaga Gets a Porter Magazine Cover for Her Birthday

-------

Porter, Net-a-Porter’s new magazine that launched with an Inez & Vinoodh-lensed Gisele cover in February, certainly knows how to grab an audience—and rack up downloads. Today, the publication’s Instagram account posted a teaser cover of Issue 2, instructing followers to download the #IAmPorter app to discover the mystery cover girl. A second Instagram featuring giant Mickey Mouse ears and the question, “Who’d wear a hat like this? #ARTPOP #ISSUE2,” quickly confirmed the answer: Lady Gaga. Coincidentally (or not so coincidentally?), today also happens to be the star’s 28th birthday.

To encourage social media sharing among Gaga’s many devoted fans, readers can upload photos to the #IAmPorter app and superimpose her famous Philip Treacy headpieces onto the image. Warning: It’s almost too much fun. Prepare for total selfie overload.

Punk, Algae, and the Eighties Unite in Annelise Michelson’s Fall ’14

-------

Annelise Michelson

Ever since Annelise Michelson exploded onto the fashion scene three years ago (and spawned a thousand copycats) with her Carnivore ring, she has gathered quite a following: Lady Gaga, Alison Mosshart, Eva Green, Theodora Richards, and Robin Wright are all fans of her bold, jagged aesthetic.

This Fall, Michelson spins her Carnivore design into one- or two-tiered chokers—a few of those caught our eye on the streets of PFW—as well as a “lobe cuff” (a spike holds it in place on pierced ears). Another femme fatale theme is déchaîné, a term that in French means cutting loose in a big way but also toys with the idea of chains. Here, oversize broken links are fused on massive chokers inspired in equal parts by the work of Helmut Newton and the jewelry Michelson’s mother sported back in the eighties. “I wanted something highly contemporary, slightly punk, but also timeless because that’s what chains are,” she explained. Elsewhere, the designer takes an equally bold but more organic turn with an algae-inspired collection of large pieces with curled edges. “I’d been mulling a marine theme and collecting shells, and all of a sudden I realized that algae would make a good bracelet,” she observed. Who knew punk and kelp could make such lovely bedfellows?

Anchors A-Wang!

Alexander Wang

Perhaps the only subject more buzzed about than Alexander Wang’s imminent postshow rager? How anyone will actually get to the designer’s Saturday runway romp at the far-flung Brooklyn Navy Yard. The brand has already partnered with Uber to offer a 30 percent discount on cars to the show, but given the recent surge in prices, we’re not sure it will make much of a dent. This morning, however, word came of a novel transit alternative: Guests will have the option of sailing the high seas—or, at least, across the East River—to the show via a boat leaving from South Street Seaport at 8 p.m. Not since guests were ferried to Gaga’s Navy Yard ArtRave has the fashion set seemed so nautical. But don’t forget the Dramamine.

Crossing the Bridge for Alexander Wang

-------

What’s Lincoln Center got to do with it? Well, if you’re Alexander Wang, not much. Next week, the designer will show his Fall ’14 collection at the Brooklyn Navy Yard (the same spot Lady Gaga hosted her ArtRave) instead of on the island of Manhattan. While first word of the move had some editors concerned about convenience—How do we get there? Are we going to have to take the subway?—receiving today’s envelope has set our minds at ease. The invite includes directions, a map, and (our favorite part) an Uber discount code for those who need a little motivation. Not that we wouldn’t go to Brooklyn for Alexander Wang anyway.

Lady Gaga Snipes Versace Couture, Thinks Riccardo Tisci Is “A Blast”

Lady Gaga's Versace Look

Well, this doesn’t happen every day—even when you’re Mother Monster. Following the Atelier Versace couture show on Sunday, Donatella Versace reportedly gifted pal, campaign star, and doppelgänger Lady Gaga a one-of-a-kind (and undoubtedly über-expensive) crystal mesh hood and white fur jacket straight off the runway (look 13, to be exact). The pop star wore the outfit to the house’s post-show dinner party, and apparently couldn’t bear to give it up at the end of the evening. She even tweeted a snap of herself in the ensemble, flanked by Riccardo Tisci, Franca Sozzani, and the ever-generous Versace. “Riccardo is a blast,” her tweet read. We didn’t need Lady Gaga to tell us that.
