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?
The Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation awards, announced this morning, gave seven lucky designers a cool $25,000 to put toward their Fall 2010 shows. Among them: our pal Prabal Gurung (pictured, a look from his standout Spring 2010 show, on which the win was judged). We caught up with the Nepal-born designer for a few words on his runway debut, his red-carpet fans, and a few starlets (sadly unnamed!) who don’t quite measure up to the PG standards.
Congrats, Prabal, on your award. What can we expect from the Fall 2010 collection?
It’s like I always say: From one season to the next, it’s an evolution, not a revolution. Whatever I do in one season, I can do better, and I want to get to a point where it reaches perfection. The vision gets clearer and clearer every season. But it’s going to be the same idea: beautiful fabrics, lots of draping and tailoring, an old-school way of making clothes done in a modern way. But it’s my first runway show and it’s definitely going to have a little bit of attitude.
Knockoff Speedy bags are old news. In London a trial date has been set for three people accused of selling counterfeit versions of clothing Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren were selling at their store Sex in the seventies. What’s next? Faux Fortunys? [WWD]
One star sighting that might slip by the Japanese paps at the Bryant Park tents: Oprah’s Dr. Oz Garcia. He’ll be around to hawk his Arizona Rx Energy Fast Shots, a concoction of green tea, vitamins, and minerals. No word on whether he plans to take in a show or two. [WWD]

According to The Wall Street Journal, your wardrobe could play a key role in whether or not you land a new job. The paper advises dressing conservatively. Time to stow the jumpsuits, fashionistas.[WSJ]
