- Gap says, “Here’s to you Mr. Robinson,” dismissing their design chief of the past 5 years, Patrick Robinson, over sluggish sales. [NYT]

- Well, the FiFi’s happened. The fakest award this side of the People’s Choice, this years’ honorees included Halle Berry for “Fragrance Celebrity of the Year” and Fergie for… “New Fragrance Celebrity of the Year.” I’m embarrassed just writing that. [WWD]

- Agyness Deyn is the latest model to turn actress with her debut role as a stripper — a classic choice — in director Louis Prieto‘s remake of cult favorite Pusher. Deyn was cast based on her “impressive audition” and not on her ability to do this. [Vogue UK]

- That Sarah Burton and that Duchess of Cambridge are some tricky broads. To keep the Royal Wedding dress a secret, Burton told the dress’s lace makers and her team of seamstresses that they were working on a costume for a period film, while senior members of the Alexander McQueen design team were simply told to lie their fascinators off. [Styleite]

- Carine Roitfeld will style V Magazine‘s fall cover story and an editorial spread. A collective yay has sprung up around the Fashion Indie office. [Page Six]

MUSE OF THE WORLD: Patrick Robinson Falls Out of the Gap, Sarah Burtons Secret to the Royal Wedding Secret and Gagas Judas Hath Sprung a Leak

- A shortened version(the full 10-minute version premieres tonight) of Lady Gaga’s “Judas” music video has leaked and it is hilarious. Religious iconography, unnecessary haute couture and the requisite dance break. Thank god someone knows what I need. [YouTube]

Story by Lester Brathwaite

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester at fashionindie.com
