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

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.
