Diamonds are Forever...

Tattoos are a girl’s best friend. We know that’s not the correct phrasing, but this tattoo is made entirely of diamonds. Now, this is no henna; it’ll set you back a cool $924,000, which is frighteningly close to one million dollars. While this may not be an ink tattoo, it looks like the process was pretty painstaking, nonetheless. Apparently, it look an arduous 8 hours to apply. Now that’s dedication, my dears!

Lady Gaga isn't the only one wearing high-fashion in her newest music video, Alejandro. Her male dancers sport military outfits custom made by Emporio Armani, and while Gaga's 'gun bra' (custom made by David Samuel Menkes) takes center-stage during their synchronized dance routines, the boys' all-black military look makes a strong impression as well. The house of Armani plans to debut this look in stores next season...Look out for more upcoming collaborations from this dramatic duo!

Bonjour, Bond Street

Solange Azagury-Partridge's new Bond Street flagship is yet another signal that this once-indie designer is firmly entrenched in the majeur leagues of international jewelers. Why else would Azagury-Partridge ditch her old stomping grounds in indie haven Notting Hill to join the likes of Cartier, Tiffany, and Van Cleef & Arpels in the heart of Mayfair? The 1,600 square-foot store will draw plenty of foot traffic from luxury-loving locals and tourists, but will this designer's original rock-and-roll crowd (and vibe) stay true to the Labelux-owned brand? Let's not forget she opened on Madison Avenue last year, and another retail location is set to bow on Rodeo Drive this fall. Fret not—her Bond Street outpost will feature a "private member's club" to keep the riche and famous coming back, and back, and back. On espère!

Au Revoir, Maria Luisa

After 12 fabulous years, Chic is heartbroken to bid au revoir to Paris style emporium Maria Luisa. Its owner, Maria Luisa Poumaillou, created a critical fash focal point at her tiny boutique on Rue Rouget de L’Isle, right around the corner from le Meurice and the Ritz. Designers from Rick Owens and Manolo Blahnik angled to sell there, while equally in-demand editors relished it as a shopping source and between-shows timekiller. But perhaps the closure was to be expected. Poumaillou was recently appointed fashion editor of Printemps, and she also aims to develop an e-boutique at thecorner.com. Bonne chance!

The Daily is widely known for accurately predicting the winners of the CFDA Awards---but how did we fare this year? Once again, we correctly predicted 4 out of the 6 victors. (In 2008, we guessed 5---pas mal.)  Who tripped us up? The men. Rag & Bone's David Neville and Marcus Wainwright were named menswear designers of the year, and Richard Chai was granted the same honor in the Swarovski category. Congrats, boys, we adore vous---but Daily favorites Michael Bastian and Patrik Ervell received better reviews all year long. (Not to mention sales-floor success.) Perhaps Chai, Neville and Wainwright have the ladies to thank. After all, a bulk of CFDA Awards voters just happens to be females who worship their women's collections. This bodes well for Bastian, who is introducing women's RTW at his Gant show in New York this September. We'll be watching!
