That hip surgery thing is over and Lady Gaga is back with no gold wheelchair in sight. Of course, she’s just gallivanting around midtown Manhattan in unreasonably high platform booties and a black bra. Though it’s quite the demure look for Gaga, we can’t help but think it’ll encourage ladies to brave underpinnings as outerwear, or at least consider that center-bra trend; we advise that your leave that to Mother Monster.

Bullett Magazine‘s newest editorial shot us with a major dose of Amber Heard roaring in animal prints… on prints… on prints. The summer spread, shot by Harper Smith, paints a portrait of the Machete Kills star as a girl whose affinity for leopard and snakeskin are fulfilled through pieces by Timo Weiland, TopShop, and Nicole Miller.

Whether you catch her in super-skinny denim or nothing at all, Karlie Kloss knows how to strike a pose. She leaned toward the later in July Vogue  for a futuristic shoot that accompanies a piece by Plum Sykes about the innovative Viva Mayr spa in Austria. Mario Testino lensed the spread, which features pieces from Julien d’Ys, Rochas, and Proenza Schouler.

We fawn over Scott Schuman‘s blog and hope that the legendary Bill Cunningham will snap our photo for The New York Times. If we were alive during the 1950s though, there would have been another lens to pause for. Next year, historian John Maloof will present Finding Vivian Maier, a look at a nanny’s skill behind the camera and the 100,000 captivating images it produced. Though Maier’s work was only discovered in 2007, the documentary will chronicle her private passion and attempt to offer a look at the mystery of Maier. [YouTube]

When thinking of famed photographers, Larry Fink might also come to mind. Known for his behind-the-scenes captures at Hollywood soirees and fashion shows, Fink has professed his fascination with said culture, but always preferred to stay “one step away.” In an interview with The Cut blog, he reveals how that probably made him miss out on a major career collaboration. “Once upon a time, way before Marc Jacobs worked with Juergen Teller, one of his guys came up to me at a fashion show and he said, ‘Marc Jacobs loves your work,’ he said. “And if I was an ambitious guy, a guy with a head for that sort of thing at that point, I would have made an appointment with him right away, and perhaps I would have become a millionaire, perhaps like Juergen Teller is. But I said, ‘Oh, thats great,’ and went on with the program. So I missed my making [laughs].” [The Cut]

Everything But Water is taking Rihanna‘s “Fresh Off the Runway” to heart… and to Miami Swim Week. This year, audiences will be able to livestream all shows then shop looks from L*Space, Luli Fama, Mara Hoffman, and ViX Swimwear for two days after the collections close. Swim 2014 runs from July 18-22. [ELLE]

Edie Campbell is every woman for Lanvin Fall 2013. The Jil Sander star channeled six different women for Lanvin’s latest campaign, which brings vintage film noir vixens to mind. [Grazia Daily]

Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant is lending her skill to another television show. She’ll be hosting Janie Bryant’s Hollywood, a reality competition that challenges designers to create pieces inspired by Hollywood icons. “We loved the idea of tapping into someone like Bryant, who is great at finding a look and designing costumes for film and TV and seeing how it translates into the real world,” said James Deutch, who’s developing the show with Fashion Star co-creator EJ Johnston. “Janie totally gets how to translate Hollywood to mainstream fashion.” [Vogue UK]
