Miranda Kerr Unwrapped For Victoria’s Secret Holiday Catalog, Tom Ford’s Morning Ritual, Yachting With Gucci, And More…
It’s not the gift-giving season quite yet, but photographer Russell James was feeling the holiday spirit yesterday when he shared behind-the-scenes images of Miranda Kerr’s Victoria’s Secret catalog shoot.

Apparently, Tom Ford doesn’t wake up as Tom Ford. In an interview with Hint Magazine, the designer says, “It takes me a long time in the morning to become the person that other people expect me to be. When I feel depressed and I have a bad day or something terrible has happened or I have to face something, I go through a very precise ritual getting dressed in the morning.” The designer let his guard down on a few other things in the interview, too, from his desire to be hit on to what he learned from spending the past two months in Mexico.

Attention “fashion-sexuals,” little monsters, Andy Warhol, and Stephen Gan: Gaga 101 is now in session. The Lady’s first column for V Magazine has hit the Web and it’s a doozy. “Dear critics and bullies: get your library cards out because I am about to do a reading,” Gaga writes. Our take-away? Don’t ever leave your library card at home; according to LG, legendary social Nan Kempner sure wouldn’t. [NY Mag]

Birkin and Bentley buying is back, but bling is not, the WSJ reports. According to recent studies, the wealthiest Americans have emerged from the recession with a new shopping consciousness: They’re looking for discounted luxury products, and Target and Costco are now among their favorite stores.

Iris Apfel—whose enormous wardrobe was large and lavish enough to deserve its own Costume Institute show—is bringing her quirky style to the masses. Apfel is launching a line of jewelry HSN, her first foray in the design world. The “kind of throwaway chic” collection includes chunky necklaces, bracelets and brooches made from Lucite, mixed metals, and beaded materials; it does not, unfortunately, include a pair of Apfel’s signature owlish glasses.
