The First Lady selected a plum, high-waisted Isaac Mizrahi dress—with sleeves!—for last night’s State of the Union address. We’d say she came off at least as well as her husband. [HuffPo]
Having exhausted every even barely reasonable trend, It piece, and runway-only gewgaw, Lady Gaga is now sporting infomercial-peddled girdles to her concert appearances. Well, at least it’ll broaden her audience base to include grannies. [Glamour]
Cowboys, your headgear is getting a tune-up. Stetson announced that it has tapped CFDA award nominee Albertus Swanepoel to design a capsule collection of around ten hats inspired, variously, by Sherlock Holmes, the Bauhaus, and classic models from the label’s archive. Yee-haw? [WWD]
The Wall Street Journal launches its latest fashion investigation: denim on denim (a.k.a. the Canadian tuxedo). Its findings: Practice with caution; outfits in the mirror may be uglier than they appear. [WSJ]
The Fame Monsters were out in force this weekend to see their queen when Lady Gaga performed a sold-out four-night run at Radio City Music Hall. The Haus of Gaga only attired one concertgoer—the Lady herself, natch—but that’s not to say the evening lacked sartorial splendor offstage. We sent our intrepid reporter to cover the action, and all the studs, sequins, and, yes, Marie Antoinette wigs that that implies.
What happens when two of the world’s biggest media personalities come together? This jumpsuit. Custom-made by menswear designer Nicolas Petrou of Petrou\Man, the mesh bodysuit with paillette sequins seemed an almost demure choice for Gaga—as we learned from her interview, she hates to be called “Lady.” (Of course, she did don a studded metal romper for her performance.) What do you think? Is this a chart-topping hit, or is she caught in a bad, well, jumpsuit?
Stock up on Style.com executive fashion director Candy Pratts Price’s winter essentials, and you’ll be ready to brave even the coldest nights—a very good thing, since the parties stop for nobody, no matter how frostbitten she may be. But if you’re looking for an excuse to huddle by the fire at home for a night, here’s a pretty good one: Lady Gaga is making her much-vaunted guest appearance on Bravo’s Launch My Line tonight at 10 p.m. Die Gaga plus the always entertaining Caten twins of Dsquared²? It’s a free pass for couch-crashing—valid one night only.
Despite being reduced to a licensing operation earlier this month, Christian Lacroix and his designs are on track—er, tracks. The couturier is creating 20,000 uniforms for French railway workers, which will debut next month. [WWD]
Corset sales are up nearly 70 percent in the U.K., thanks in part to underwear-wearers like Lady Gaga and Rihanna; Selfridges recently sold out of a luxe Bordelle model in 24 hours. At $1,470 a pop, we hope that one came with a record deal. [WWD]
Uniqlo’s +J Spring 2010 collection will hit U.K. stores on January 7. Which means, London girls, you should have gotten in line last week. [Vogue U.K.]
