News Lady Gaga is an eccentric sort, but few had her down as a colossal hoarder… Of Michael Jackon’s property.

Among her MJ arsenal, Gaga treasures his famous Swarovski-encrusted crystal glove, which cost her a cool £117,800

Fashion: The glitter band

Time was when Swarovski's crystals were just for your granny. But now they are the decoration of choice for designers such as Alexander McQueen and Philip Treacy. By Melanie Rickey. Styling by Sophia Neophitou. Photographs by Karena Perronet-Miller

Designer loses his pounds 500,000 collection

ONE OF British fashion's leading young designers, Antonio Berardi, had his entire 1998/9 collection, stolen from outside his London studio on Monday afternoon.

No thank you A little lotus flower elan?

A resounding no, cheers very much, to this piece of expensive tat from Alexandre de Paris (whoever he may be)

Donatella goes her own way

DONATELLA VERSACE took the unprecedented step yesterday of hosting a press conference, to preview her second collection for the house since her brother's death last year. "I'm very nervous," she confessed. "I think I have more to prove ... It was easier when Gianni was here."

Fashion: London comes of age

Lurid leather, time travel and the trouser boot - it's adult, feisty, and very, very Brit. Tamsin Blanchard calls it Adult Frock

Ready to Wear: It's a wrap

A scarf or shawl can make an outfit. Designers such as Georgina von Etzdorf, Nigel Atkinson and Carole Waller dedicate themselves to bringing us innovative fabrics and printing methods. These cost big bucks, but it is important to see glorious scarves as outfits, not just accessories. My friend wore a pounds 2,000 long black evening dress to a ball this summer with a pounds 500 shawl. No one mentioned the dress. The next week she wore it with a pounds 50 Miss Selfridge dress; no one mentioned the dress again. Moral: you can get away with a cheap dress if your shawl costs half a grand. There is something quite delicious about having a chiffon shawl slip off your shoulders to expose a curve of flesh. Sort of a cross between Little House on the Prairie and A Streetcar Named Desire.
