Yesterday, we reported Lady Gaga‘s odd absence from the red carpet at the Met Gala. While the wires were oddly empty of Gaga in the Prada tux she reportedly wore after changing out of her sparkly catsuit, The Cut recently published a rare shot of Gaga in said tux. With no spikes or sequins or live animals protruding from the outfit, Gaga looks strangely… normal. [The Cut]

Fashion’s Night Out, a shopping celebration organized by Vogue in each of its global cities has expanded from a one night affair into six nights. What was last year referred to as a “drunken chaos,” and saw Barbara Walters singing a duet with Oscar de la Renta, will kick off in France on September 7, end in Greece and Turkey on the 16th, with countries like Britain, Australia, India and Taiwan in between. Sadly, Canada was nowhere to be seen on the bill.  [WWD]

Speaking of models, Daria Werbowy, recently did a spread in EXPN (the extreme sport insert to ESPN Magazine) hanging from snowy branches in full snowboarding gear. We love a supermodel who can shred. [Rad Collector]

Politicians and lawyers are telling teens to pull up their pants. A legal attempt in Bedford, UK, to get an 18-year-old boy to pull up his pants was abandoned yesterday. Meanwhile, in the last month New Yorkers have seen billboards throughout Brooklyn, backed up by New York senator Eric Adams, urging young men to “raise your pants, raise your image.” Who says the fashion police doesn’t exist?
