Putting her leggings empire on hold, Lindsay Lohan has been hired as “artistic advisor” at Ungaro, according to a press release we got today. We're so with you, Esteban.

Hint Tip: Gaga for Givenchy

Giving Liberace a run for his money, Lady Gaga will take center stage at The Box on September 15, belting out an acoustic set on a grand piano for the launch of Givenchy’s new men’s fragrance, Play. Hosted by OUT magazine (because clearly it wasn’t gay enough already), the bash will hopefully restore the former hotspot’s reputation, tarnished after its star turn on Gossip Girl. Following in the footsteps of contortionists, female body builders and assorted carnies, her Gaga-ness is a perfect fit.

Add some a tan, chest hair and a come-hither squint and Burberry’s Christopher Bailey could be England's Tom Ford—and yet not. [Times UK]

Gareth Pugh for the masses? According to an email we got today, his NY video presentation will be open to the public, proving he's nothing if not a risk-taker.

Move over Kanye West (please?), Yohji has enlisted graffiti artist MOMO to bomb a limited run of Y-3 sneakers. [The Moment]

Arty Party

Thank goodness fashion tires of trends quickly (last season's "recession chic" cast a dour pall over our festivities). But spring '10 is already looking up, and the strongest trend taking shaping is one we can get behind: art collaborations. Photographer (and Women Models founder) Paul Rowland will kick off the New York shows with a fete for Supreme and V in a hot new Chelsea penthouse space that might just give Milk Studios a run for its money... Meanwhile, Croatian wonder Damir Doma will be arting up the Soho Grand with a conceptual installation called Silent... Always adept at the art of being fashionable (or the fashion of being arty?), Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld and Andy Valmorbida are following up last season's exhibit with an homage to legendary painter Richard Hambleton. The duo will host a dinner at Armani and a top-secret opening bash... Not to be outdone that night, MOMA has recruited Linda Evangelista to host the opening of interior designer Ron Arad's No Discipline exhibit... Deitch Projects and Vogue are hosting The Open, a groups show of emerging artists at the epic Deitch Studios on the East River... Graduating from mannequin manhandling and basement dungeons, the crew at Bland is having a full-blown performance at Cherry Lane Theatre... Then there's the much-rumored threeasfour collaboration with Yoko Ono at Milk Studios, as well as the launch of Pop’s Damien Hirst-designed covers... The week will wrap up with a bang at the New Museum: the launch of Shoot, Rizzoli's valentine to the point-and-shoot revolution, showcasing the work of Nan Goldin, Wolfgang Tillmans and Juergen Teller. Collections, collectors, collectibles and collabos—can you handle it? Of course, we'll trust you to use your own wiles to shimmy your way in. Or just stay tuned.

Hint Tip: Alexander McQueen

Guess who's the latest to join Twitter. Alexander McQueen! (McQueenWorld) Be the first to know what's going on in his houndstooth-lined head in the run-up to the spring collection. We also hear he has big news to divulge soon, presumably on Twitter, but for now he's dealing with a "microwave head meltdown (with) sparks flying out of my brain!"

Hooked: Alexander McQueen

From the strangest of birds comes the latest and most covetable of nests, Alexander McQueen's Egg Chair. Better than the Golden, Fabergé and even Cadbury varieties, the ovum throne comes upholstered in fall's signature houndstooth tweed and accented with skull zippers and other signature McQueen hardware. Originally designed as seating for McQueen boutiques worldwide, the Egg Chair is now being released in an uber-limited run of five. Yes, five. A second series will appear just in time for Christmas. Available exclusively at Alexander McQueen boutiques, price upon request.
