Madge Gone Wild


Madonna fans got a sneak preview of her newest music video, “Girl Gone Wild,” earlier this month, but this morning, Madge fans got the full picture. And as expected, it includes the pop star writhing around (surrounded by a gaggle of nearly naked men) wearing hot pants, leotards, S&M gear, and a sexy pair of black stilettos (pictured). found out those shoes were custom-made for her by Paola Bay of Italian footwear label Zoraide.

“She wanted them as high as possible and to be able to dance with them on,” Bay tells of the heels, made of black silk embroidered with silver thread. “We did three fittings to make sure they were like second skin.” Call it a success—the Material Girl can not only dance in them, but do push-ups against the wall in them, too. Watch the Mert Alas and Marcus Marcus Piggott-lensed video, above.

Lane’s Trifecta


For its latest Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-lensed campaign, Lane Crawford cast another group of Asian models. This time around, the retailer tapped a Chinese trio: actress Li Bingbing, Chinese It girl Chen Ran, and model Sui He, to show off the latest pieces from brands like Azzedine Alaïa, Alexander McQueen, Alexander Wang, and Balenciaga. The campaign, styled by Panos Yiapanis (who has done editorials for the likes of Another Man and VMan and worked with photographers like Nick Knight and Steven Klein), was shot in London back in November. Here’s a exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the shoot.
