Lady Gaga, Elizabeth Hurley, Versace dress

Lady Gaga brings back Elizabeth Hurley's iconic black Versace dress.

We spotted Lady Gaga hanging with blonde designer bestie Donatella Versace yesterday at Palazzo Versace, posing for pics and generally looking both strikingly chic and adorably alike (like a high school spirit week Twin Day but IRL!!). We didn't know what the two were cooking up then, but we're preeeeetty sure the above black, super low-cut, safety-pinned look was a result of yesterday's activities. Looks like Donatella let Gaga's monster paws dip into her late brother Gianni's archives again, and this time, she's resurrected a Versace icon of epic proportions: the décolletage dress Elizabeth Hurley made famous at the 1994 premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Chanel, Denim dress

A list of iconic elements come to mind with the mention of mammoth fashion house Chanel: classic ladylike chic, Karl Lagerfeld, pearls, tweed. But DENIM??? Well, stop scratching your head and giving me the side-eye because the above denim tube dress really is 100% ripped from Chanel's Spring 2013 ready-to-wear Paris Fashion Week show. Front-facing butt-pockets, bright red pocket square and all, this is an actual Karl creation for the legendary French house of high fashion.

Lady Gaga Donatella Versace

Aaaaand Lady Gaga's "love affair" with Donatella Versace continues! Last year Mother Monster admitted she was "obsessed" with the brand, and Donatella let her do the unthinkable—dig through the Versace archives for the first time since before Gianni passed. Now it seems the twosome are still closer than ever. Just yesterday, they were spotted at Palazzo Versace looking eerily alike—Donatella wore a skin-tight, all black frock with her infamous platinum blonde hair, and Gaga sported a matching blonde wig to celebrate her designer BFF. Mother Monster also wore a white, gold and silver studded Versace number (of course!) with her fresh 'do paired with fire engine red nails. Yowza!

Jean Paul Gaultier Paris Fashion Week

More than just a designer, Jean Paul Gaultier is a consummate showman. It's safe to say that you can always count on his Paris Fashion Week shows to dazzle and straight-up entertain. This season was no exception, with JPG not only outfitting his models in gorgeous new Spring 2013 togs (fringed skirts, floral satin pants, latticed wireframe sleeves!!!) but ALSO styling them after iconic musicians. *Cue mental glitter bomb, exploding rainbows and Lisa Frank dolphins.* What does that mean exactly? Well, for starters, you get our House of Style hosts Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss (both of whom also walked the Stella McCartney show this morning!) killing dead a sultry Sade and a braided Boy George respectively. And given JPG's long-storied love of Madonna, there was no shortage of rosary-clad Madge tributes including this sheer black number showcased by the lovely Jessica Stam.

Azealia Banks

Remember how we said Azealia Banks had a really busy day yesterday? Allow me to rephrase and just lump it all together into one week. (Granted, we could go into how this has been a busy YEAR for Banks, one of our predicted "It" girls of 2012, but I digress...) I guess it makes sense since she's one of the fashion community's favorite music acts and it's Paris Fashion Week, a week-long event for which girl is undoubtedly a hot commodity. Azealia and her "Earth Weave" hit the stage last night for the official launch party of the Anna Dello Russo at H&M accessories collection.

Dolce & Gabbana, Jeremy Scott

Take note, public. Thanks to the one-two punch of Dolce & Gabbana and Jeremy Scott, burlap potato sacks have now graced the Fashion Week runways for two years in a row. That means we officially need to get one (or two or infinity) into our closets STAT. I know what you're about to say: "You mean you're not already wearing burlap potato sacks on the daily? *hair flip*" Well, pump the brakes on the judgement train for just one hot second because maybe we have sensitive skin and thus maybe wanted to feel this trend out before diving in head first! *catches breath from defensive hyperventilating*

Don't say we didn't warn you. From first wind of K Pop rapper PSY and his outrageously epic "Gangnam Style" music video, we knew this dude was one to watch ESPECIALLY on the fashion front. We broke down earwormy vid look by look and all its sunglasses-and-fine-suiting and tacked PSY onto our mental watchlist of budding dude fashion stars. Lo and behold, here he is starring in a new video teaser for a little something Jill Stuart has coming down the pipe called "Gangnam x New York Style." *strokes silky, silvery thinking beard*

Grimes Hedi Slimane

Many of us were something just short of aghast when Hedi Slimane announced that he would be using his power as creative director of legendary fashion house Yves Saint Laurent to stage a complete overhaul of the brand, starting with the most sacred of signifiers: the name. It would be called Saint Laurent Paris--a small change, but a significant one--and people scratched their heads a little bit, but as time has passed have come to accept that a new age of YSL is upon us. There have been reports that the new SLP will include expanded ready to wear, MANY more stores, and a younger, fresher feel, and Slimane's extracurricular activities support those theories. Outside of creative directing, Slimane has been photographing magazine and album covers from ultra cool, slightly grungy pretty young things Grimes and Sky Ferreira (not to mention those incredible photos of Frances Bean Cobain). He shot the cover for Sky's Ghost EP and Grimes' Dazed & Confused cover, and has now been posting atmospheric, beautiful shots of the Canadian musician on his blog, Hedi Slimane Diary. Could Slimane's fondness for edgy, street wise ladies be an indicator of the direction the new Saint Laurent Paris will take? Are there SLP snapbacks and nameplates in our future? Check out more of Slimane's photos after the jump and form your own theories.

Anne Hathaway Valentino Wedding Dress

The verdict is in! Anne Hathaway (who got engaged to Adam Shulman last year) will be getting married in a custom Valentino wedding dress, according to People StyleWatch. SQUEEEE. Last night at the New York City Ballet gala, Anne arrived in a GORGE Valentino Couture fall 2012 embroidered floral gown that screamed autumn, and, lucky for us, Valentino Garavani himself was also on hand escorting Ms. Hathaway down the red carpet. He revealed that he "did the dress" for Anne's big day and said, "She's a very good friend of mine. She’s like my daughter!" Awwwwww. :')

Betsey and Lulu Johnson at Betsey's 70th birthday party.

Lulu Johnson has quite and enviable pedigree. Not only is her mom Betsey Johnson, whose 70th birthday party we just attended, but Lulu grew up right at the helm of her eponymous clothing line as both muse and design assistant (how's that for training?). It's only natural, therefore, that she would grow up to be a designer in her own right, and that's exactly what she's doing with her new line, Lulu and Allison (the 'Allison' would be her best friend and co-designer, Allison McClellen). Now, we're pretty sure anything designed my a woman who had not only grown up with a fashion designer mom but also with access to THE BETSEY JOHNSON ARCHIVE would have to be pretty bonkers. However, Lulu claims to be more down to earth, or at least less sartorially adventurous, than her mom. In a new video from The Stylish (which you can watch after the jump) Lulu describes her line as, "a line for women who still want to be hip, sexy, and cool," while Betsey describes her own line as, "very punky, very downtown Sally Brown, very MTV." First of all, we are beyond pleased to be used as a descriptor for one of our favorite designers EVER, and second of all, it sounds like Lulu will not be following directly in her mother's footsteps with her line. We're going to get to follow along the whole way, though, as the two are also about to begin a reality show.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
