Gareth Pugh Minx Nails

British designer Gareth Pugh, often known for his graphically bold club-kid inspired ensembles, showed his Spring 2012 collection at Paris Fashion Week, which was jam-packed with black and white striped dresses, pants, and capes, cage-like vests and shoes, and strong square-shouldered frocks. And while we loveloveLOVE all of the futuristic geometric looks that hit the runway, we had our eye on the insane beauty game that was happening backstage. The makeup was absolutely minimal (we're talking not even MASCARA on these models!), and Minx completely stole the show with customized black and white striped nails—even using the nail sticker palettes to create a floating white eyeliner effect (UH-MAZING!). Nail stylist Marian Newman admitted she had never seen Minx used as makeup before: "The effect was amazing, and so ingenious. The overall theme of the show with its cages and bars and lines was delivered perfectly!"

Lady Gaga Mugler video

Little Monsters 'round the world, rejoice! You can finally see the show edit of Lady Gaga's short film, which debuted during yesterday's Mugler Spring 2012 Paris Fashion Week show. The video also marked the reveal of a never-before-heard remix of one of Mother Monster's songs. For Gaga aficionados, the melody is immediately recognizable as "Black Jesus † Amen Fashion" (which Nicola Formichetti had hinted at with lyric quotes in a lead up to the show). For the film, Gaga donned multicolored extra-long pigtails sitting WAY high up on her crown that she flips around in full-on Romy and Michele vigor, PLUS a pair of iced out incisors.

As I type, Little Monsters and Thierry Mugler/Nicola Formichetti fans across the globe are biting their nails (dynamite though they obvi are) and wetting their lips in anticipation of today's Paris Fashion Week show and the reveal of Lady Gaga's newest short film and remix. The white-knuckled intensity as the 9:00 p.m. Paris showtime (That's 3:00 p.m. EST if you're too harrowed and excited to mess with time zone conversions. Also, here's a warm face towel to calm your furrowing brow.) quickly approaches is insane, but thankfully Nicola, the adorable panda-loving creative director extraordinaire, has been tumbling TONS of behind-the-scenes pics and videos for our greedy eyes' enjoyment in lead-up. For example, we found THIS amazeballs snapshot of a FinalCut window with a still of three Gaga heads that we can only assume/cross our fingers/hope to the high heavens is a still from the new short film premiering today (I meannn, the middle head's hair is EXACTLY the same as the 'do peeking around the clapboard in the teaser image released last week, AMIRITE??). PLUS, peep a video of the Mugler show location after the jump!

The sartorially minded master of surprise Lady Gaga has yet another trick up her sleeve, this one set to debut at next month's Paris Fashion Week. Mother Monster will be unveiling a new short film during the Spring 2012 Mugler fashion show. Directed by the renowned Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin (under the lovingly watchful eye of Nicola Formichetti, of course), the film is said to introduce a never-before released Lady Gaga track. SQUEEEE!

Kanye West will show his Spring 2012 Collection at Paris Fashion Week.

ZOMGAWDS. Finally, more news on the spectacularly enticing Kanye West Fashion Week debut! He will NOT be showing at New York Fashion Week as earlier reports had surmised, but he is in fact holding his runway show on Oct. 1 at Paris Fashion Week. We have it confirmed on deep background that the designer is definitely Louise Goldin (which everyone has basically been tittering about for WEEKS now) and that it is a womenswear collection. Reports have since surfaced at Australian Harper’s Bazaar confirming the date, location, and news that it’s a womenswear collection since their fashion editor Christine Centenera has been consulting Yeezy with semimonthly visits since March. Apparently the runway show will be held after Jean Paul Gaultier at 9:30 p.m., thereby breaking the entire internet by 9:32 p.m., with everyone’s faces exploding in order to jockey for SEO supremacy.

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