The Word: When The Biebs met The Wintour

Brooklyn Decker, Justin Bieber and Anna Wintour at Fashion’s Night Out. Below, an artistic rendering of the results if Bieber and Wintour swapped hair styles.

On Thursday night, during Fashion’s Night Out, Dolce & Gabbana’s Madison Avenue shop turned from hosting a sophisticated soiree to an absolute madhouse once Justin Bieber showed up. Decked head to toe in the designer, Bieber brought the paparazzi — and hoards of screaming young fans (they were lining up to buy $195 D&G autographed shirts; a portion of proceeds went to Bieber’s favorite charity). Other big names at the FNO event included Tyson Beckford, Chase Crawford, Brooklyn Decker, Sophia Bush, Usher and Anna Wintour.

Beckford chatted with Metro on his style muse: “I’m inspired by walking down the street every day,” he said. “I’m inspired by other guys, how they dress. [But] I really want to do this [Dolce & Gabbana] James Bond tuxedo, that thing is sick.”

When we finally got through the throngs of reporters, we asked Bieber what was one item he couldn’t live without. And he actually had a sensible answer: “My shoes,” he said. He even gabbed a bit about recording two new albums, saying, “I’ve been focusing a lot on my Christmas album. I’m excited about the final outcome.”

And although our reporter couldn’t hear what was said when the superstar actually met Anna Wintour at the event, let’s hope it had something to do with one day swapping their iconic hairstyles.

Gaga goes vamp?

Even trendsetter Lady Gaga is partaking in the vampire trend, as it appears she has a new man in her life: “Vampire Diaries” star Taylor Kinney. According to Radar Online, the two met when Kinney was cast in the video for Gaga’s new single, “You and I.” Things seem to have gotten more serious, according to a source who spotted the pair out at a seaside bar in California recently. “It was just casual at first, but things are getting pretty hot and heavy,” the source says. “I couldn’t tell it was her at first. It just looked like some hot couple making out.”
