What Georgia Wears To Cruise, Daphne To Work Out, Lady Gaga To Shock And Awe, And More…

-------

The reign of Georgia May Jagger continues. The pouty-lipped, doe-eyed model—who, at this rate, we’ll have to start calling “super” soon—has nabbed Chanel’s Cruise campaign, if the leaked shots that have hit the Web are to be believed. [Fashin via Refinery29]

Cathy Horyn weighs in on Christopher Kane’s unlikely partnership with Donatella Versace, “an odd mix that works.” She also floats the speculation that Versace will invest in Kane’s namesake line, which Kane doesn’t deny. Embroidered flowers on patent leather for everyone! [NYT]

Williamsburg’s favorite hipster eatery, Marlow & Sons, is leaving no scrap unused: The restaurant is now making bags from skins of animals it uses for meat. This is both slightly gross and slightly amazing—in other words, echt Williamsburg. [NY Mag]

We know what Daphne Guinness wears to the movies, but London’s Times asks the tough questions: What does she wear to the gym? The answer—Rick Owens tees and leggings, apparently—and more choice Daphne-isms make the article well worth a read this morning. [Times Online]

And brace yourself for Lady Gaga, the book. LADY GAGA: Critical Mass Fashion hits stores this September. [Daily Front Row]

Lady Gaga’s Doing It For Herself, Your Chance To Snag A Few Early Alexander McQueens, And More…

-------

Three years after her death, Isabella Blow’s unparalleled fashion collection—which included her friend Alexander McQueen’s entire graduate collection from Central Saint Martins—will go on the auction block. Here’s hoping some smart museum or private donor keeps at least the McQueens together. [WWD]

Todd Selby shot Waris Ahluwalia, Ruben Toledo, and André Balazs in their envy-inducing offices and homes for Louis Vuitton—in other words, exactly what you’d expect. If it ain’t broke, we guess… [Refinery29]

Speaking of Waris, he joined Lily Donaldson, Erin Wasson, and more in supporting NYC public school education. Each designed a T-shirt to be auctioned off on eBay to celebrate Playworkgroup’s first anniversary; the proceeds will go to Pencil, a local nonprofit. Lily’s shirt includes a pair of eyes and the legend “I See You”; Erin’s the scrawled quote, “Some things should last a really long time.” (So maybe hand-wash this particular tee?) [Modelinia]

Anne Hathaway has given up the gifts given to her by her conman ex-boyfriend, Raffaello Follieri, which include several Rolexes, jewelry, and a Louis Vuitton box. They’ll be auctioned off to repay the victims of Follieri’s schemes. [Page Six]

And Lady Gaga has applied for an internship with eccentric English milliner Philip Treacy. We never thought we’d say this, but makes total economic sense. If you’re going to run around with lobsters, telephones, and orbiting rings on your head all day, it’s only practical to bring production in-house. [Vogue U.K.]

GA For Gaga, A Few Thoughts On The (Real) Plastics, And More…

-------

On last night’s American Idol, Lady Gaga performed in a mostly-mesh Armani bodysuit. “To complement the spirit of Lady Gaga herself, I have let my imagination run free,” the designer said. OK, just so long as he doesn’t make a habit of it. [Vogue U.K.]

On with their heads? Apparently, mannequin heads are making a comeback—one of the many tidbits to be found in Cathy Horyn’s treatise on the divas of the window display in today’s Times. [NYT]

Speaking of mannequins, Style Like U takes a tour of nineties model Jenny Shimizu’s digs. [Style Like U via Refinery 29]

And Gen Art, which has supported emerging designers, filmmakers, artists, and musicians for 16 years, announced late yesterday that it has halted operations. Zac Posen, Rebecca Taylor, Phillip Lim, Peter Som, and Vena Cava were among the many designers given a leg up by the organization early in their careers. [WWD]

More Ink For Gaga, Real Talk From Carolina, And More…

-------

In her continuing quest for shock and awe, Lady Gaga has defaced an Hermès Birkin in black Sharpie. Look on her works, ye mighty, and despair. [Racked]

Marchesa is exploring brand extensions, beginning with…dinnerware. It’s probably the closest you’re going to get to dinner with Georgina Chapman without being a Weinstein. [Fashionista]

Perhaps the most sensible statement in fashion we’ve heard all day: “It’s not my aspiration to appear on a reality show. That’s the last thing I need in my life.” —accidental Tinsley Mortimer reality show co-star Carolina Herrera. [Page Six]

An English auction house is bringing some of the late Princess Diana’s gowns to the block, including the low-cut black number that earned her the nickname Daring Di. [Vogue U.K.]

And the race is on to see who can bring the highest-profile guests at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. Glamour‘s got an early lead with Jason Wu and Jessica Alba. [WWD]

Footballers For Fashion, Boy Gets A Little Sister, And More…

-------

The latest additions to Louis Vuitton’s “core values” ads—the campaign that made models of Gorbachev, Buzz Aldrin, and Keith Richards—are rumored to be footballers Diego Maradona, Pelé, and Zinédine Zidane. LV won’t comment, but if you start to hear tell of headbutts on set, you’ll know why. [WWD]

The key to Band of Outsiders’ success? L.A., says designer Scott Sternberg, which keeps him apart from the New York fashion machine. And soon to come out of that L.A. laboratory: girl., the lower-priced companion line to his womenswear collection, Boy. [WSJ]

Your morning read: Gaga explained. Well, mostly. [NY MagS

Apparently when Kate Moss demands you switch outfits with her in the loo at a party, you switch outfits with her in the loo at a party. But give Natalie Imbruglia credit for a strong spine—she demanded her dress back when Miss Moss wanted to keep it. [Digital Spy via Racked]
