Style Scoop: Madonna Gets Daring, COS Pops Up in OC, Roberto Cavalli’s New Man


If you play a game of truth or dare with Madonna, prepare to lose. For her November 2013 cover of Harper's Bazaar, pop's high priestess not only dressed for battle in Reem Acra, Lanvin, and Giuseppe Zanotti, but she also penned her own feature, daring asking readers to take a page from her book. [Harper's Bazaar]

In the world according to Simon Doonan, there's no rubric for good taste. “I never subscribed to the idea of good taste,” he told “It’s a subjective concept promoted by fashion scribes to oppress the rest of us. Dressing age-inappropriately is, so they say, in poor taste, and it’s vulgar. This is exactly why I celebrate it.” [ELLE]

Lifetime's House of Versace may not be Donatella Versace-approved, but leading lady Gina Gershon is more than happy to portray the style icon. “It’s got to be weird for her, and I’m not sure I’d be too happy if someone was doing my life story, but she’s got a fun sense of humor,” she said in an interview with The Daily Beast. “And I think she comes off great in the movie. One of the reasons I did it was that I was really impressed with what she did and how she got to where she is now. I only have the utmost respect for her. She’s a smart, funny woman, and she’s thriving.” [The Daily Beast]
