Fashion News: Lady Gaga's new scent will not smell like blood

November 22, 2011 |  8:12 am

Lady Gaga says her new perfume will be based in molecules from her own blood, but won't smell like itRemember reports earlier this year that the new perfume Lady Gaga has in development with Coty will smell like blood? It turns out the perfume, which is expected early next year, is based on molecules of her own blood, "so it's a sense of having me on your skin," she says now. "Actually the perfume smells like an expensive hooker." [Daily Mail]

Lady Gaga's Workshop, a creative collaboration involving the entertainer, fashion designer Nicola Formichetti and others, opened at Barney's New York at 11:59 p.m. Monday. It features eight shops that take up the fifth floor of the Manhattan flagship, offering lots of Gaga-inspired gift items.

Net-a-porter has begun selling replicas of the cowl-necked Alexander McQueen gown bridesmaid Pippa Middleton wore at the royal wedding of her sister Kate and Prince William back in April. It's available on the online retailer's British site for $3,100. It's not on the U.S. site at present, but I did find a street-length red dress in a similar style (for $1,680). [Telegraph] [Catwalk Queen] [People]

It was inevitable: Many items from the Versace for H&M collection that went on sale last week are being hawked on eBay. But many aren't selling; prices are too high. [The Cut] [Fashionista]

Valentino and business partner Giancarlo Giammetti plan to launch the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum on Dec. 5 (you can preview it now). It will include views of 300 dresses from more than 50 years of Valentino's career, including Jacqueline Kennedy's wedding gown. [WWD]

Sir Paul Smith has been named winner of the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design prize, Britain's highest fashion honor. It will be given as part of the British Fashion Awards later this month. [Telegraph]
