United Nude Shoes For Lady Gaga

Lady gaga United Nude 1 United Nude Shoes For Lady Gaga

On the occasion of Lady Gaga’s perfume launch for Fame, shoe retailer United Nude created a special model inspired by the ad campaign where Lady Gaga is presented as a naked colossus with an army of tiny good looking menfolk scaling her body. The result is a 12 inch artwork available for purchase at the United Nude flagship stores in Paris, London and Amsterdam.

Rem D. Koolhaas, Creative Director, United Nude about this special mission:

“We were invited to make a shoe for Lady Gaga’s new Fame perfume launch. Since we are fans, we thought we’d give it a try. They wanted the shoes to be as high as possible, so that’s what they got. We came up with a few concepts, one which was inspired by her own Fame campaign where she’s a naked giant and people are climbing on her. In the case of the shoes, we went for climbing gold men, and yes they are nude, United Nude.”

Nicole Richies’ label, House of Harlow 1960 in collaboration with Beta Fashion show us how to make the skull look feminine, by lightening them with bright colors and girly ornaments like butterflies and flowers. Both the skippers and scarves are now available from Beta Fashion and from Next.

Michelle Obama flashed her famously toned arms in a shimmery pink Tracey Reese dress she wore for her very well received Democratic National Convention speech last night in Charlotte, North Carolina. On the way to a party last night for designer Leah McSweeney and writer Cat Marnell (happy birthday to both of you!), my co-editor, SGP, speculated the dress might be J.Crew. She wasn’t far off, Obama’s pumps were J.Crew pink “Everly” pumps, available now for $245. (You know Jenna Lyons & co. are high-fiving their asses off this morning!) The fashion conscious Obama also gave a nod to the nail art trend wearing a grey shade of purple.

Rihanna: Isabel Marant Jacket, White Manolo Pumps & Gucci Bag

Rihanna (1)

Rihanna’s departs London, and heads to Paris by train, looking oh-so-chic in white Manolo Blahnik “BB” pumps (quite the item among celebs these days, though the white color is one of Rihanna’s signatures), an Etoile Isabel Marant army jacket and her much-adored Gucci “USA GG” flag-themed Boston bag. It’s very similar in silhoutte anyway to the LV Stephen Sprouse bag she carried all the time a year or so back so this must be a shape that works for her. And apparently when she got to Paris, there was quite the melee, brought on by fans who were awaiting her arrival.

On the next page, see a close up on her brown and beige, reverse-French nail art, plus a zoom in on her make-up, sunnies and necklaces.
