And Today, In Lady Gaga News…

-------

Lady Gaga and Donatella Versace

Somehow, we’re not shocked to see that Lady Gaga is back in the headlines today. This morning, WWD reported that Versace, who just collaborated with M.I.A. on a Versus capsule, is rumored to have tapped Mother Monster to star in its Spring ’14 campaign. The ads were allegedly lensed by Mert & Marcus in London. And despite the fact that Mlle Gaga is perhaps a touch overexposed these days, it seems a fitting choice, considering the pop singer has been wearing the house’s looks—vintage and new—since 2011. After all, there is a song dubbed “Donatella” on her new album.

Surprise! Kate Moss to Bare All for Playboy

-------

Kate Moss in Vanity FairJune’s widespread rumors are true—Kate Moss will cover the 60th anniversary issue of Playboy, and word on the street is that Mert & Marcus have already shot the feature. “It’s natural for us,” Hugh Hefner told the Los Angeles Times. “She’s a worldwide celebrity and iconic and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modeling.” Indeed, after seeing Moss’ sultry Spring Versace ads, that pinup-worthy spread in last November’s Vanity Fair (left,) and that saucy Spring Love cover of her swooning in a bathtub, we don’t think Playboy is too big of a stretch.

The Revolution Will Be Madonna-ized

Madonna in costume at her 55th birthday party

She’ll always be the Material Girl, but this weekend, Madonna turned 55, celebrating with a lavish bash in Nice attended by the likes of Riccardo Tisci, model Jon Kortajarena, and photographers Mert & Marcus. The theme, according to neon on the venue’s façade was REVOLUTION; Madonna herself, a bewigged Marie Antoinette doppelganger. A good time seems to have been had by all, judging from the number of “#hungover” Instagrams that flooded the iPhones of the world the next morning, but a nagging thought occurs: Does Madonna not remember how the revolution ended for Marie Antoinette? It’s all fun and games until someone loses a head.

Armani Takes a Roman Holiday

Giorgio Armani's Fall '13 ads

Tonight, Giorgio Armani and co. will head to Rome to open his new boutique on Via Condotti (think Italy’s answer to Madison Avenue). But this is Armani we’re talking about, so, naturally, there will be a grande event to celebrate the store. At 3 p.m., Style.com will live-stream the house’s One Night Only Roma—a fete that will feature runway shows of the Fall ’13 collections from Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani, as well as the Armani Privé Spring collection, the opening of Armani’s Eccentrico exhibition, and, of course, una festa with plenty of star power (Milla Jovovich, Tina Turner, and Sophia Loren will all be in attendance). Armani, which has, in the past, hosted similar events in London, Tokyo, and Beijing, has also given us a sneak peek at its Fall ’13 campaign. Lensed by Mert & Marcus and starring Mariacarla Boscono and Florian Van Bael, the snaps have a slick, futuristic edge. Take a peek at the campaign’s exclusive debut (above), and check back this afternoon for the live stream of Giorgio Armani’s One Night Only Roma show and party.

Exclusive: At Givenchy, Flower Power, Military Might, And Even A Cameo From Bambi

-------

Givenchy Pre-spring 2014 MenswearGivenchy’s Mert & Marcus-lensed Fall campaign broke today, starring two generations of Roitfelds, Amanda Seyfried, and models Dalianah Arekion and Quim Gutiérrez, but time and tide wait for no label. Hot on the heels of the campaign, Riccardo Tisci unveils its Pre-Spring men’s collection exclusively on Style.com. Anyone who’s had an eye on the Fall womenswear will recognize it as a cousin. Florals, flames, and camouflage motifs abound, and those who eyed the bricolage Bambi tees that look likely to be the latest runaway hit will be glad to find them here in men’s versions, too. Even Luigi Murenu’s painted hairdos from the women’s show get translated for the guys. (The sharp tailoring and sporty Bermuda short/leggings combination is classic Givenchy men’s.)

The collection, Tisci says, takes inspiration from Latin culture, and has the potentially sensitive name of Favelas 74. (1974 is Tisci’s birth year.) “Men in favelas are more natural and more confident about their sexuality,” he explains. “They are not scared to mix and match clothing. They represent sensuality, street, and elegance—what I recognize as elegance. I love the fact that they play with opposite things like flowers (which represent peace and serenity) and camouflage (which represents the army), but all interpreted in a very colorful and positive way.”

Here, the exclusive debut of Givenchy’s Pre-Spring 2014 menswear.
