Twenty-five for 25—that’s the Beyoncé way of giving. The singer, who headlined at Glastonbury this weekend, sent her sister 25 pairs of designer shoes for her 25th birthday Friday. Where do we sign up? [Page Six]
Heidi Klum has jumped back into the jewelry business. After a Van Cleef & Arpels lawsuit put the kibosh on her first QVC fine jewelry collection, the model and television host has teamed up with QVC once again to create Wildlife by Heidi Klum, a costume jewelry collection launching in September.

Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci isn’t letting the images of his Fall ad campaign, featuring his panther skirts and sweaters, out of the cage just yet. He has, however, revealed that the Mert and Marcus-photographed campaign will star Naomi Campbell and Natalia Vodianova. [Elle]
Speaking of Givenchy, Tisci confidante Carine Roitfeld will be front-row at the Couture shows next week, apparently impersonating a client for an upcoming story in W magazine. [WWD]
Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant is launching her own line, Mod by Janie Bryant, on QVC. It’s inspired by fifties and sixties fashions, like those on Mad Men, but Jon Hamm, sadly, doesn’t come with purchase. [WWD]
Isabella Rossellini has designed a new bag for Bulgari (pictured), a rectangular tote available in four versions, including ponyskin and patent. The bag has a snail-print lining—”We chose the snail, just because my bag is a little bit like my home,” Rossellini said—though presumably not snails in flagrante as in the ageless actress’ “Green Porno” series for Sundance.

Look out, London. Harrods has announced it’s eyeing a second location—in Shanghai. [Vogue U.K.]
And if this morning’s Lady Gaga performance on the Today show wasn’t enough for you, there’s a Gaga lookalike contest being held at noon in Union Square. The winner gets tickets to her last show at MSG. Monsters, to your marks! [Broadway World]
Lori Goldstein is the ultimate fashion insider. It’s not just that she’s outfitted Madonna or been the fashion whisperer to Donatella Versace or created to-die-for iconic images with Steven Meisel and Annie Leibovitz in the course of her career. (Though we still swoon over the Versace campaign from 2000 that Jay Jopling deemed gallery-worthy for White Cube.) It’s that in today’s full-exposure world, Goldstein plies her trade in an Oz-like, behind-the-scenes manner, backstage at Vera Wang or Carolina Herrera. That’s why I did a double take reading about her QVC line LOGO, a project started last season and now in very full swing. But if you ask Goldstein, LOGO isn’t about making her name but rather sharing the vast body of knowledge she’s amassed over the years. Trust us, it’s positively oceanic. Her collection, shown on the runway at Bryant Park on September 12, sold out in a mere 20 minutes, but Goldstein will be on QVC tonight at 8 p.m. Here, she talks to Style.com about reality shows, Jackie Susann, and fashion’s new frontier.
How would you describe the ethos of LOGO? It sounds like there are a lot of things with styling leeway, the jewelry and the detachable floral pins.
It’s really about having fun with clothes. We have to get dressed every day. It’s really not about price point. It really never has been for me. I happen to be obsessed with beautiful, expensive things. That’s always been my thing. Our aesthetic was never really available. So I just wanted to do that. It’s really how you put clothes together. It’s giving yourself freedom and permission to do different things, like mix print and color. And then the whole pin thing and the whole detachable thing, I love that whole two-fer idea.
