One day after unleashing the video for “Applause,” Lady Gaga hit the promo trail in some covetable creations. Earlier this morning, the petite power visited Good Morning America in a white Mathieu Mirano design made entirely of paper, before changing into an LBD from Balenciaga Resort 2014, then switching it up in a Balmain Fall 2013 confection. Can we just say we’re totally here for her pared-down aesthetic? [ABC News]

No surprise here: Gisele Bündchen tops Forbes’ annual list of highest-paid models for a seventh year in a row. She raked in $42 million from June 2012 to June 2013 by fronting campaigns for H&M, David Yurman, and Chanel. Bündchen’s sum beats her husband Tom Brady‘s earnings by $4 million, and tops the second-highest earning model, Miranda Kerr, six times over. [Forbes]

Consider it the year of Isabella Blow. Though the Philip Treacy muse passed in 2007, her distinct style is thriving well beyond her 48 years. Not only will London’s Somerset House revel in her wardrobe this November, a Miami theater company is telling her story with a new production. “In Blow Me, we follow Isabella down the rabbit hole as her life comes to an end, which is only just the beginning of the ride,” reads a synopsis of the work. “Isabella tells her own story as only she could remember it, through spectacle.” [Vogue UK]

Change is Condé Nast’s middle name. In a second major masthead overhaul, Condé Nast Traveler editor-in-chief Klara Glowczewska has been dismissed from her post. Company artistic director Anna Wintour was present for the announcement, which named former Martha Stewart Living editor Pilar Guzmán as Glowczewska’s successor. [WWD]

Nicola Formichetti isn’t the only fashion figure giving fresh faces a chance to shine. Karen Millen recruited photographer David Bailey to shoot new models Grace GaoNur Hellman, Kirsi Pyrhonen, and Karlina Caune for its Fall 2013 campaign to help “propel” them to the “next stage of their careers.” [Grazia Daily]

When Hannah Bronfman opens her beauty bag, we can’t help but peek inside. To our delight, the NYC It girl’s natural look is achieved with some of our favs: Stila lipgloss, Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation, Tom Ford blush, and Make Up Forever HD powder. [ELLE]

Hèrmes is headed south. The luxury giant is slated to follow its Beverly Hills flagship opening with a Buckhead Atlanta location and new location in Miami’s Design District. [WWD]
