If it was the 90s, and Lady Gaga and Donatella Versace were in middle school, you can bet they’d be wearing BFF heart necklaces. I mean, Gaga even wrote an entire song dedicated to and named after Donatella on her ARTPOP album.

So really, it should come as no surprise that the iconic designer has asked her fashion-forward friend to front Versace’s Spring 2014 ads. The only thing shocking will be the ads themselves. This is the woman who wore a thong to the VMAs, after all.

H&M has partnered with its fair share of designers (ahem, Versace, Maison Martin Margiela, and, soon, Isabel Marant). But the label’s most recent collab comes as its most surprising yet – Lady Gaga. In the wake of the release of her new album, ARTPOPBillboard reports that the retailer is set to sell a limited number of the pop star’s albums in more than 175 international stores. On the flip side, Gaga will help H&M open their new Times Square location in NYC and officially light the logo atop the Condé Nast building.

If this collaboration is anything like Madonna’s, we expect a series of campaigns and possibly (fingers crossed) a capsule collection.

Chitter Chatter

Take: A virtual tour of designer Tanya Taylor’s studio space. Yep, we’re officially obsessed with her style (as is just about every fashion insider).

Know: Gender-bending model Andrej Pejić has made fashion history by being the first-ever androgynous male to grace Elle’s cover – and trust us, it’s worth picking up.

Congratulate: Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll on their December nuptials. The best part? (Well, aside from the thought of Kate taking “Rocknroll” as her last name.) It’s rumored that Leonardo DiCaprio was the one to give her away. Looks like she finally let go, Jack.

Watch: Lady Gaga’s upcoming documentary by fashion photographer Terry Richardson. Now, this should be interesting… and probably weird.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the American Music Awards, which has spawned some truly memorable fashion moments over the years. Here, a look back at a few of my favorites.

Michael Jackson was feeling “Dangerous” in 1993 and his AMAs performance – complete with male backup dancers wearing matching black suits, skinny ties, and fedoras – made him look like the leader of an army of well-dressed mobsters.

In 2007, Fergie took to the stage in a barely there sequined Jenny Packham sheath and sky-high red stilettos, giving Tina Turner a run for her money in the legs-up-to-there department, while her Black Eyed Peas bandmate will.i.am looked every inch the gentleman in his top hat and velvet smoking jacket. That same year, Avril Lavigne transitioned from teen punk rocker to grown-up divorcée in a black T-shirt and silver skirt.

A year later, Beyoncé channeled her alter ego, Sasha Fierce, and tore up “Single Ladies” wearing a plunging black and white Armani Privé satin jacket with matching black booty shorts beside backup dancer (and current Glee star) Heather Morris in a coordinating one-armed bodysuit.

Jennifer Lopez went for the gold – literally – during her boxing-inspired 2009 AMAs performance of “Louboutins,” with a 24K microphone and glittering gold, leather, and lace romper that almost made us forget she fell on her butt mid-song, while Rihanna opted for a skin-baring white bandage jumpsuit. Thankfully, there were no wardrobe malfunctions during her performance, despite having only a thin strip of leather covering her lady bits.

Not one to be outdone, Lady Gaga also went the jumpsuit route in 2009 but in her case, it was flesh-toned, covered by a plastic exoskeleton that extended from her ankles to her rib cage, completely obscuring the upper half of her face and lighting up when she moved.

And in 2010 Katy Perry set off “Fireworks” in a sparkly crimson Marco Marco jumpsuit that did her figure all kinds of favors.

With Nicki Minaj and Rihanna leading the 2012 AMAs with four nominations each, and Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Adele, and Taylor Swift also in the running, we know this year’s AMAs is sure to have more than a few looks to remember.

The 2012 American Music Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday, November 18, at 8PM ET on ABC.
