10 Important Things We Learned This Week: May 1-7

1. Lady Gaga‘s Judas video debuted with a lot of religious symbolism and controversy. Then later in the week she performed for Oprah from the top of a very secular sculpture of a high, high heel.

2. The Met Gala was pretty intense. Hamish Bowles and a bunch of other people wore McQueen, Anna Wintour and Blake Lively wore Chanel. There were the best-dressed, the worst-dressed, Anna Dello Russo and everyone else.

3. Of course the Gala itself wasn’t nearly as cool as the exhibit it celebrated. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is one of the Metropolitan Museums most popular exhibits and with good reason. We hear it’s absolutely breathtaking.

4. People are still talking about the Royal Wedding! We got lessons on what Prince William wore, how Pippa‘s bridesmaid dress was actually a McQueen repeat and heard from the guy responsible for Princess Beatrice’s hat.

5. Meanwhile, Kate and William settled into domestic life with a brand new baby (penguin!) and trips to the grocery store.

6. We were shocked to learn that John Galliano fired his lawyer the week before he was set to start his public insult trial. But then we found out the lawyer stole several million dollars of Galliano’s money and it all made sense. It also made sense for Galliano to sue said lawyer.

7. Target and Missoni are collaborating on a collection of clothing and housewares. WE REPEAT: TARGET AND MISSONI ARE COLLABORATING ON A COLLECTION OF CLOTHING AND HOUSEWARES!

8. This week in magazines, Crystal Renn got naked for Tush, Stefano Gabbana leaked the June cover of Vogue (oops!), and Stella Tennant looked not-so-hedonistic for i-D‘s hedonism issue.

9. The Gap fired its best-known designer, Patrick Robinson. Then people started questioning whether or not that was actually a good idea.

10. Karlie Kloss had a better week than anyone, though. After starring in H&M‘s fall lookbook, she put on a gorgeous dress and went to prom.
