Karl Lagerfeld, Hogan to Draw VIPs...

Expect a flash flood of VIPs tonight when Karl Lagerfeld unveils his second collaboration with Italy’s Hogan brand, part of Tod’s Group.

KOOKY MONSTER: Seated front row at the Mugler show Wednesday night, designer and longtime Lady Gaga collaborator Jeremy Scott was fighting off major jet lag to witness the singer’s catwalk debut in the show. Scott saluted Gaga’s “appetite for anything new and exciting that challenges the status quo.” So would he be partying with her later? “Bag of bones is the only way to describe my state right now,” he groaned.

A gaggle of hardcore fans fought their way backstage afterward, where the singer was holed up in her dressing room. “I’m totally obsessed with her,” said Anna Dello Russo, the fashion director of Japanese Vogue and no slouch herself in the eccentric fashion stakes. “I cannot compare with her, please!” she said. Pucci creative director Peter Dundas said he had seen Gaga in concert three times and already had an idea of how he would dress her, if given the chance. “It would probably have a bit of sparkle to it — but not a lot of it,” he said. Mario Testino was fresh off shooting the singer for the cover of the March issue of U.S. Vogue. “She is amazing to work with — very professional and full of ideas and a very clear sense of who she is and where she wants to be,” he said. Emerging from her audience with the pop priestess, Dello Russo was buoyant. “I told her, ‘You are my hero,’ and she said to me, ‘You are my hero.’ I said, ‘Lady Gaga, don’t joke with me. But at least leave me some outfits from the show.’”
