LADY GAGA and Giorgio Armani have formed a multimillion dollar partnership that will involve the legendary designer making the costumes for Gaga’s forthcoming tour in December.

“A huge company like Giorgio Armani has the duty to always be alert to trends and what appeals to young people,” says Roberta Armani, Mr Armani’s niece and head of VIP relations. “It helped to see how the world is through Lady Gaga, the way she uses Facebook and Twitter.”

Although there is still very little information on what the pair’s collaboration will involve, Gaga is the first star that Armani has designed a specific gown for. Celebrities to have previously worn his label have chosen from existing collections.

“It wouldn’t be possible to give Gaga a look from the collection because she wears pieces of art. It’s theatrical,” Roberta tells the Wall Street Journal.


Lady Gaga in Alexander McQueen

Once again, Lady Gaga can be counted on to provide at least one form of eye candy at an award show. It was a pretty sparse white carpet at last night’s MTV Video Music Awards, but luckily Gaga brought more than enough fashion drama.

She honored the late Alexander McQueen by wearing a creation from his final collection, along with his gravity defying lobster shoes. The deep red, gold and green gown with classic digital prints was dramatic, and further amplified with a thick black-and-green tulle petticoat. Topping off the look was a gold feathered headpiece by Philip Treacy and Gaga’s blue-dipped bleached hair.

There aren’t many people who can successfully pull off a McQueen, and it’s wonderful to see his creations come to life.

Style File: Lady Gaga

HER off-beat look and zany style has captured the fashion imaginations of legions of fans worldwide and she counts Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs among her designer friends: Lady Gaga. Her inimitable ensembles and refusal to wear the same thing twice has captured the hearts of fashion’s elite.

Since she burst on to the music scene with her debut album, The Fame, and her first single Just Dance saw her writhing across a partyscape in her trademark statement sunglasses – causing mayhem and controversy from the living room to the paddling pool – we’ve watched her fashion choices with a keen eye.

And we’re not the only ones. Last year, Gaga was one of only two celebrities at Marc Jacobs’ spring/summer 2010 show in New York (Madonna was the other starry attendee) and, this year, she worked with Giorgio Armani to design the outfits that she wore at the Grammy Awards and on stage for her Monster Ball tour. And at the Brits, she paid a moving tribute to Alexander McQueen with an acoustic rendition of her hit, Telephone.

Her stylist, Nicola Formichetti, makes sure that Gaga never sets a foot wrong style-wise and has dressed her in Alexander McQueen, Emporio Armani, Philip Treacy and Agent Provocateur as well as commissioning one-off pieces from up-and-coming designers including Fred Butler. And then there’s her own Haus of Gaga – her own behind-the-scenes creative team – which ensures no end of jaw-dropping creations for the pop star.

Bad news, little monsters. This week’s reports that Lady Gaga has a perfume in the works is “a totally false rumor”—for now. Don’t count out the pants-less-wonder when it comes to the celebrity fragrance game.

You may remember the Pob and those spiky blond highlights, but Victoria Beckham has enjoyed many other hair phases, too. Like, say, the “poodle perm”—a look we doubt she’ll be revisiting anytime soon.

Finally, Courteney Cox comes clean about her Botox use in the new issue of InStyle. “I don’t have a problem with any of that stuff; if it makes you feel better about yourself and it’s done properly, then fine.” She does admit to overdoing it occasionally though, as anyone who has seen Cougar Town is well aware. (Fine! We watch it on occasion, but only when nothing else is on.)

And now, for a study in aging gracefully, we give you: the French. It’s not so much that Frenchwomen don’t get fat, it’s that they won’t. Compulsive weight management, a dedication to buying more skincare products that anyone else in Europe, and some government-funded spa time are just a few secrets that keep our Parisian counterparts looking better than us well into their sixties. As far as feeling sexy into old age, there’s a collective “mind over makeup” mentality—and a wealth of fancy underwear purveyors, of course.
