Monsters fans are in for a treat as today Grand Central Publishing have announced that the Lady Gaga is working on a book with Terry Richardsonset for release on November 22.
It's definitely been a long time coming. Few artists in recent years have had such a powerful impact on the fashion industry so it is only right that that influence is documented through imagery in a book. According to the publisher, Richardson was given unprecedented access to Gaga for 10 months where he was able to capture everything for her Grammy Awards appearance this year to the final show or her Monster Ball tour and candid behind-the-scenes snaps of her off-stage life. Over the period Richardson snapped 100,000 images of which only 350 will appear in the book.
“We are proud to be publishing this remarkable collaboration between Lady Gaga and Terry Richardson and anticipate that it will be one of the most stunning, provocative and coveted books of the 2011 holiday season,” Jamie Raab, Executive Vice President and Publisher of Grand Central Publishing, said.
August is fast approaching so you know what time that it - the September issues are just around the corner. So far covers from Harper's Bazaar Australia and Glamour US have dropped and now ELLE UK have released theirs featuring Kirsten Dunst.
Although Dunst had been on a hiatus from the public eye in recent years, she made a comeback in May during the Cannes to promote her new film 'Melancholia' so it's nice to see the star on covers again.
Gigi Burris is far from the average 23 year old graduate. The Floridian native milliner has quickly become one of fashion's best kept secrets since leaving Parsons - until now that it. This week Chanel announced that they've recruited Burris to head up their millinery division.
Her penchant for colour and innovation resulted in Burris being nominated by Parsons for the Designer of the Year Award and despite being founded only two years ago she counts the likes of Rihanna as a fan and 2009 saw Vogue Italia herald her as one of America's designers to watch.
Why must she dress that way? I think she's confused about her gender! No, I'm really serious, she wears pantsuits that are unflattering ... I have great respect for her intellect and her tenacity and for what she does for our country in her governmental role. I just wish she could send a stronger message about American fashion.
