Fashion Doings Round The Globe: Anna Chapman Fashions, Lady Gaga Wears Versace & Meggings & Spanx


From time to time I like to take a spin round the net to find some interesting fashion stories for a compilation-like V.G. blog. Not all are high-end couture tidbits to be sure, in the pieces below I don’t even get into latex, tattoos or fetish, but what follows is fun or interesting to be sure, a nice palate cleanser to what I usually report on.

A Spy For Fashion

You might remember the story of Anna Chapman. The sleeper spy agent was deported back to her home country of Russia in 2010, and now post the hoopla surrounding that return she has released a new clothing line. With long print dresses and handbags, the lady has reemerged as a spy with an eye for fashion.

Claiming her inspiration comes from the Tsarist period of her mother country, Chapman promised in an interview with the Guardian that her styles are “part old Russian, part modern.” You can see if the lady accomplished this here at her website:

Gaga’s Got The Goods

On the Atelier Versace catwalk this past weekend all eyes were on the Versace crystal mesh hood with white fluffy coat one of the models was wearing. It seems none other than lady Gaga was given permission by her bestie Donatella Versace to wear the prized item post the Versace dinner.

It certainly pays for a LittleMonsters to have friends in high places.

Meggings and Spanx

Not that I am all that sure how to comment on these “Meggings” I thought I’d include a bit about a fashion trend that has been showing up in runway shows like Givenchy of late only because they remind me of Spanx and just this week there were big net reveals about how Spanx could be crushing organs while seemingly making ladies thinner.


Believe it or not Huffington Post reported here: that Spanx Shapewear might not be doing one all that good on the inside as they seemingly keep things nice and smooth on the outside.

Maybe if Spanx make wearers lean to the left H.P. would like them more?
