Lady Gaga’s Haus of Gaga store will officially open at the Park MGM in Las Vegas on 30 May.

The Poker Face singer, who is gearing up to return to Sin City for her ongoing Enigma residency, took to Twitter on Thursday to announce the news, posting the black and white Haus of Gaga logo, with a pink neon sign that read ‘Las Vegas’.

It is not yet clear what will be sold at the Haus of Gaga boutique, but sources tell the Las Vegas Review-Journal it will be stocked with Gaga-branded products.

And the A Star Is Born actress is also hoping to staff the shop with fans, known as Little Monsters. According to the MGM Resorts International career website, the retail store is hiring part-time and full-time sales associates.

“Become one of the stars behind the show and become part of the world’s most powerful entertainment brands,” the employment listing reads. “Our company has one exciting mission: To entertain the human race.”

Gaga, 33, first set up Haus of Gaga in 2008, with the concept originally modelled on Andy Warhol’s Factory and consisting of her creative team. Current members of her crew include her fashion director Brandon Maxwell, hairstylist Frederic Aspiras and make-up artist Sarah Tanno.

Previously, Aspiras opened up to Entertainment Tonight about his work with the Haus of Gaga, and explained that he always wants the superstar to feel “special, beautiful and confident”.

“I’m so grateful to have had shared this journey thus far (with Gaga),” he commented. “But today, we celebrate the achievement of someone who believes in her art and empowers me to work beyond the lines. I find that to be the most rewarding part of the relationship that I have with Gaga.”

Gaga’s next Las Vegas show will take place on 30 May, with the current run of Enigma continuing until 8 November.

Adriana Lima was named Icon of the Year at The Daily Front Row’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards (FLA) on Sunday night (17Mar19).

The Brazilian supermodel is one of the most famous names in fashion, and executives at the publication feted her achievements at a presentation held at The Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles, with Love magazine editor Katie Grand bestowing her with the prize.

“Thank you @kegrand for presenting my fashion icon award tonight. Love you,” the 37-year-old captioned a snap of her posing with Katie on her Instagram page.

In addition, Slick Woods collected the Model of the Year prize, and Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia of Oscar de la Renta and Monse were named Designers of the Year.

Other models to attend the event included Stella Maxwell, Candice Swanepoel, Chanel Iman, Jasmine Sanders, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Kate Hudson was awarded the Fashion Entrepreneur award for her ventures with athleisure brand Fabletics and clothing company New York & Company, while Lady Gaga was on hand to present her longtime hairstylist Frederic Aspiras with the Hairstylist of the Year award.

“On my way to present hair stylist of the year from The Daily Front Row to my best friend and hair artist for a decade @federicaspiras,” Gaga wrote on her Instagram Stories prior to the event.

Fashion stars including Christian Siriano and Jennifer Meyer also stepped out for the bash, as did celebrities including Alicia Silverstone, James Marsden, Jaime King, and Busy Philipps, with comedy star Celeste Barber hosting.

“We are thrilled with this year’s honorees representing both established stars such as Adriana Lima and rising stars such as Slick Woods. We’re also delighted to bring Celeste Barber, the hilarious and brilliant Australian comedian, to the FLA stage for the first time. Finally, the fashion world has the comic it so richly deserves,” commented Brandusa Niro, The Daily Front Row’s editor-in-chief, before the ceremony.

Lady Gaga went for a milkmaid chic look as she honoured her longtime hairstylist Frederic Aspiras at The Daily Front Row Fashion Los Angeles Awards on Sunday night (17Mar19).

The 32-year-old singer dressed to impress for the occasion in a Rodarte dress, which featured a classic silhouette given a modern edge thanks to being made of black and white leather. The ensemble featured puffy sleeves, a large white bow on the torso and a white triangular ruffle on the long skirt.

Gaga completed her look by styling her platinum locks in retro waves, and went all out with her make-up, wearing bright orange lipstick and a matching eyeshadow, with diamond encrusted fake eyelashes adding the perfect finishing touch.

Sharing a snap of her outfit on her Instagram Stories, Gaga wrote: “On my way to present best hairstylist of the year from The Daily Front Row to my best friend and hair artist for a decade @fredericaspiras.”

As Gaga and Frederic arrived at the event, they posed up a storm on the red carpet – air kissing, holding hands and, at one point, Frederic swept Gaga back into a dip.

The Oscar-winning singer wasn’t the only famous face to make an appearance at the awards.

Kate Hudson looked incredible in a sparkling red dress which showed off her post-baby curves, while Courtney Love also opted for red as she sported a figure-hugging silk number.

Busy Philipps went for a dramatic look in a plunging black shirt and wide-legged silver trousers, finished off with slicked-back hair, while Jaime King sported similarly wet-look locks – the perfect accompaniment to her black trouser suit, teamed with a mint green velvet cummerbund and cute bunny clutch bag.

Cara Santana, Malika Haqq and Shadowhunters actress Katherine McNamara also pulled out all the stops for the occasion.

Lady Gaga is up for trying any looks her make-up artist and hairstylist throw at her.

The singer and actress has never shied away from bold looks – both with her beauty choices and outfits.

Which means that when her glam squad suggest new ideas, she’s always happy to go with the flow.

“If there’s something I want to try, I just ask her and we try it,” make-up artist Sarah Tanno, Marc Jacobs Beauty global artistry ambassador, told The Hollywood Reporter.

“Most make-up artists want to kill me for saying that, but she really is a dream client for someone who loves to be creative.”

Her hairstylist Frederic Aspiras, who she brought along to work on the set of new film A Star is Born, echoed the sentiment.

“I’d love to say I’m dying to try something on her, but we end up doing it,” he smiled. “We’ve tried almost every hairstyle and colour. Lately, I’ve been bringing back styles and reinterpreting them in a new way.”

Talking about one of their favourite Gaga looks of recent months, the pair opted for the Venice Film Festival premiere of A Star Is Born in August (18).

The 32-year-old was dressed in a feathery Valentino gown, with her blonde hair styled in an elegant updo and her make-up complementing her pink dress.

“I wanted to create the most timeless updo for this special day,” Aspiras shared.

“(I felt the make-up should) be all about her beautiful skin with soft hues.”

Lady Gaga used her longtime hairstylist Frederic Aspiras on A Star Is Born, though the film’s hair department head was also needed.

Gaga, both an award-winning singer and actress, has won rave reviews for her turn as aspiring star Ally, who gets help from musician Jackson Maine, played by Bradley Cooper, to break into the business.

Emmy winner Lori McCoy-Bell headed up the hair team on the new movie, the fourth version of the classic love story, working closely with Bradley, and at times Gaga, but Frederic was also involved.

“It’s not unusual for someone like Lady Gaga to use her own team on a film. She’s used to them on the road with her and doing her style. But I did have to work with (Frederic) a little bit on Gaga’s hair because stage hair doesn’t work the same way film hair does,” Lori told Refinery29. “It all requires a different expertise because on film you can see everything, you can’t cheat any of it. But on stage, it’s less likely that someone will see a hair out of place from a distance at a concert.”

Working with Bradley, who also makes his directorial debut with the flick, was a different matter though.

Revealing she strived for authenticity with hard-drinking superstar Jackson, Lori played around first with water, then products from Paul Mitchell and Kiehl’s to get his hair looking just right.

“(He touches his hair a lot in the film) That’s why I wanted his hair soft enough so he could move his hands through it and tuck it behind his ears,” she explained.

“You’ll definitely notice that he used his hair to give nuance to Maine. You can see it so quickly that he’s this rockstar and what kind of person he is just looking at his hair.”
