Exactly as you’d expect, the dress code for the Monster’s Ball—also known as Lady Gaga’s new tour—is anything but black tie. Giorgio Armani and Miuccia Prada are two of the names who’ve created onstage gowns for La Gaga in her usually understated style. Prada’s, which has already been seen onstage in Ireland, is made of ciré, a plasticized jersey; Armani’s looks include a round-shouldered, sequined bodysuit with matching sunglasses (pictured). Of course. [FWD]
Two words: Zoolander 2. (Well, a word and a numeral, technically.) Ben Stiller to star, Jonah Hill to co-star, Justin Theroux to write/direct. Now we’re wondering: Were all those Fall 2010 shows Theroux hit in New York for research? [Racked]
Kim Kardashian defends her line with Bebe against accusations that she copied Fendi looks, saying, “The clothes you see in the chain stores at your mall are all inspired by designer, runway fashion!!! What stores like Bebe do is take runway fashion and use it as inspiration to create pieces that are wearable and accessible for everyone.” So, in other words, yeah, she copied all those Fendi looks.

In sad news, Alexander McQueen is laid to rest in London today at a private ceremony. [WWD]
And the wardrobe of his friend Daphne Guinness, is headed to FIT for an exhibition in 2011. If her current preoccupations hold, it should be 80 percent veils by then. [WWD]
Get ready to take a lunch break. Prada live-streams from Milan at 1 p.m. EST. [Prada]
Keep an eye on the castings at Elise Øverland this season: Heidi Klum and her fellow judges from Germany’s Next Top Model (pictured) will be front-row judging their contestants, who will be among the catwalkers. Spoiler alert? [Fashionista]
Prada and Fendi have agreed to move their Milan women’s shows to an earlier date, effectively extending fashion week. If you listen closely, you can almost hear the phones at Alitalia ringing furiously as every editor races to reschedule her flight. [WWD]
Kelly Cutrone wants figure skater Johnny Weir front row at Jeremy Scott. Please, please tell us there’s an Olympic outfit by JS in this kid’s future. (It would make for an epic battle of the unitards with one of Vera Wang’s designs for Evan Lysacek.) [The Moment]
And it turns out that Jersey Shore‘s Pauly D. and Blink-182′s Travis Barker have the same “Cadillac” tattoo on their torsos. This message has been brought to you by the Council of Overly Attentive Media Consumers, and presumably lamented through the halls of the Cadillac HQ. [Racked]
One of the photographic-print looks from Miuccia Prada’s Spring show has been at the top of our must-buy list—along with a pair of her swishy-crystal Lucite sandals, might we add—but we’re not surprised that the kitschy prints haven’t yet been embraced by Hollywood A-listers. Technicolor beaches and lounging vacationers are hard to pull off, and the lure of the more conventional-skewing Best-Dressed List is hard to resist. So kudos to Carey Mulligan for having the guts to rock this playful frock at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this weekend. We think her gamine looks perfectly suit Prada’s latest collection. What do you think? Does Mulligan shine here, or are you too busy staring at the beachgoers on her skirt?
The Prada blessing continues for Lindsay Wixson. The Kansas-born beauty opened Prada’s Spring show and closed Miu Miu’s, and now she’s turned up—no great surprise—as the face of Miu Miu for Spring. The brand says she’s got “more than a touch of the fawn” in her, though we think—appropriately for this season’s kitty prints—there’s some feline, too. Mert and Marcus shot the campaign in London.
Olsen worshippers, start praying to the ticket gods: Ashley (pictured in Erdem from Sunday’s Golden Globes awards ceremony) has announced that they’ll be hosting the first show for The Row this February in New York. We’re guessing these gods in particular appreciate sacrificial offerings of leather leggings and enormous Givenchy bags. [Vogue U.K.]
Would you wear the floral-print sweatsuits from Opening Ceremony’s latest collaboration with NYC streetwear darlings Pegleg? Office opinion is divided here; Racked, on the other hand, feels pretty certain. [Racked]
Edun has tapped longtime LVMH textile designer Sharon Wauchob as its new creative director. Her first collection will be for Spring 2011. [WWD]
