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.

Designers Carolyn Massey and James Long were singled out by the British Fashion Council for Topman’s NewGen Men. Previous winners include every great Brit of the last twenty years. [WWD]

Apparently Zoolander isn't enough to dissuade models from pursing the slash-actress title. Irina Lazareanu and Agyness Deyn are both heading to a multiplex near you. As a last warning, we refer you to Cindy Crawford's infamous debut. [Grazia]
