Last week, the internet went ablaze with the leaking of Lady Gaga’s unretouched Versace campaign. The Italian fashion house has yet to release an official statement on the matter, but did update its Facebook page yesterday with a new eyewear advertisement featuring the singer. The official copy reads: “The exclusive face for #StudsLadies this Spring/Summer 2014 is Lady Gaga, a music icon wearing an iconic new style – it’s the perfect match. #VersaceLovesGaga.” So there you have it, Versace loves its pop star ambassador.

Leighton Wears Versace–Actress Leighton Meester attended the opening night part for her new project, “Of Mice and Men” on Broadway last night. The brunette wore a curve-hugging chiffon gown in navy blue from Versace. Leighton paired the look with gems from Kimberly McDonald and Jacob and Co.
