    1. Triple-headed Lady Gaga on the cover of V Magazine. 1st images of Lady Gaga butterfly-themed face gracing V mag were released yesterday but word is that it was only a snippet of the mag's complete Lady G cover. Aside from moving to Farmville, Pop's reigning queen described her almost ESP-like talent for fashion.

    "I myself can look at almost any hemline, silhouette, beadwork, or heel architecture and tell you very precisely who designed it first, what French painter they stole it from, and how many designers reinvented it after them, and what cultural and musical movement parented the birth, death, and resurrection of that particular trend."

    Well, well, well. [Fashionista]

    2. No black models walked in Chanel's Resort show. In fact, no black models walked in the label's resort show last year, the fall 2011 show, the spring 2011 couture show, or the pre-fall 2011 show. Also out of the mix was plus-sized model Crystal Renn who famously walked at last year's resort runway show. [TheCut]

    6. Legendary photographer, Gene Lemuel believed in a young Kate Moss star power before she even had it. Terry Richardson's favorite photog shares details about his early encounters with a young Kate Moss.

    "She was pretty young and innocent at the time, but even then there was a knowingness, a cunning. It was compelling. And she had this unbelievable poise, too—when I shot her, I took some pictures of her getting out of a cab, and the way she holds herself, you’d figure she was already rich and famous. She just seemed like a star." [Style]
