Your Morning Fashion and Beauty Report: Sheryl Crow's wardrobe malfunction at CMT Awards. Chloe Sevigny's high-school themed fashion show.

June 9, 2011 |  8:17 am

It seems to have been a week for wardrobe malfunctions. Lady Gaga's heavy skirt pulled down her top, leaving little to the imagination at Monday's Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. Khloe Kardashian exposed more than she meant to on Tuesday with an accidental "nipple slip" while appearing on "Fox and Friends" on Fox News. Then at Wednesday's CMT Music Awards in Nashville, Sheryl Crow had her "oops-it's-going-viral-on-the-Internet" moment when she accidentally flashed a view of her underwear under her short skirt. Hey, we think Sheryl deserves some credit for wearing underwear. Proper foundation garments could have saved Lady Gaga's dignity; Khloe Kardashian's too. Oh, right, dignity doesn't seem to be among those two ladies' attributes. Crow took her faux pas with a sense of humor. "I was wearing underwear because I'm good, clean, wholesome family fun," she said. [Us]

Acarter Helena Bonham-Carter -- she of the interesting (some might say wacky) red carpet style -- is starring in Marc Jacobs' fall ad campaigns. Bonham-Carter is known for wearing the unexpected -- mismatched shoes, a Union Jack garter and such. Jacobs is known for casting the unexpected, such as a then 13-year-old Dakota Fanning in one ad campaign. Sounds like a match made in fashion advertising heaven. [Telegraph]  

The first runway show for actress Chloë Sevigny's collaboration with Opening Ceremony took place in a high school gym, complete with rattling basketball hoops and ceiling fans and cinder block. The clothes had kind of a '90s vibe with a mix of babydoll dresses, pleated minis and crop tops. Why the sweaty gym as a setting? "I wanted you to come in and be transported back to the way you felt when you were a teenager," Sevigny said. [Cut]

Louis Vuitton has launched a website where aspiring artists can share their work, be inspired and learn more about the art world. Recreative was a year in the making, developed by young people working with the Hayward Gallery, the Royal Academy of Arts, the South London Gallery, Tate Britain and the Whitechapel Gallery as part of the Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project. [Telegraph]

Gap, which has been struggling in the U.S., will try to revive itself by making stores here look more like those abroad. That's part of the strategy, at least. [WWD] (subscription required)

Lauren Conrad has moved beyond her reality show drama and into serious fashion design, working on her new clothing collection, Paper Crown. The collection has a decided L.A. vibe and Conrad says she was aiming for it to feel chic and "effortless." [PopSugar L.A.]
