Earlier this week, Mathieu Mirano got one of his biggest endorsements when Lady Gaga wore a white dress made entirely of paper from his eponymous label during an appearance on Good Morning America. Turns out he fashioned her in a dark number for “Applause” too. “The harness we created for the ‘Applause’ video was inspired by the Mata Hari, a World War I courtesan and convicted spy,” the 22-year-old designer revealed. “Her darkness was powerful, so along with Gaga’s team, we came up with the idea to make the pieces out of burnt duct tape and safety pins.” Top it off with a throwback John Galliano gown and offer up a standing ovation.

Cara Delevingne isn’t just fashion’s favorite girl. Her work with Fendi, Chanel, and Melissa proves she’s Karl Lagerfeld‘s top choice too. The dynamic duo teamed up again for the cover of Numéro‘s September Issue, which also stars Ashleigh Good and Nadja Bender on two of three covers. [Grazia Daily]

Breaking Bad is pulling out all the stops to make its series finale a memorable one, but we never saw this coming. J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler will be making a guest appearance on the show this Sunday as a businessman wearing “a very out-of-character sweatshirt and ill-fitting jeans—definitely not from J Crew.” [Vogue UK]

While we’re on the topic of Jenna Lyons’ jewel, revel in this: a $998 tee featured in J. Crew’s September style guide that took 35,000 embellishments and three days to make. [J. Crew]

We knew it was only a matter of time before we shared a cup of coffee with Garance Doré. The French fashionista inked an agreement with Random House to publish a tome of her work and à la mode musings. [Racked]

Almost eight months after the disappearance of Vittorio Missoni’s plane off the coast of Venezuela, the fashion house’s heiress is speaking out. “It has helped us a lot that there are so many of us and we are so tight. It’s easier than if you were having to face it all on your own,” Margherita Missoni told The Times of her family’s loss. “Of course it was hard for me, especially because I’m pregnant. I’ve had a very intense pregnancy, with all the things that have happened, but it wasn’t my father—other family members have had a harder time. We are hoping this will be closed very soon.” [ELLE]
