THIS IS A MUST SEE!!!
From cone bras to men in skirts, you’ve made musicians into style icons and kept fashion weird with gender-bending sexuality for 36 years. It’s safe to say no one else could create an Amy Winehouse tribute collection, or establish a couture house while dressing Marilyn Manson (and all without formal design training!). When homogenous fads and celebs on the red carpet threaten to make us all look the same, you’re there to remind us all to throw on a corset every once in awhile. As far as we’re concerned, age is just a number. Just one question: Will your cake be torso shaped (have your cake and be it, too?)?

When Kelly Osbourne was in Miami last month, she wasn't just cracking open her head and spending time in Mercy Hospital. She may have been scouting locations for the freaky sideshow Beacher's Madhouse.
Osbourne is the show's creative director and partner to creator Jeff Beacher. The two have been spotted in Miami, reportedly looking for a permanent venue for Beacher's Madness, according to Scene in the Tropics.
Currently housed in Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel, Beacher's Madness is a variety show with a special focus on the vertically-challenged. It boasts a Tiny KISS cover band, Oompa Loompas, and Mini Lady Gaga in addition to circus curios such as sword swallowers and tight-rope walkers.
The freak show landed at LIV last year in a special event hosted by David Arquette and showman/comedian/creator Beacher. The stage was filled with dancing Ommpa Loompas, pink gorillas, and a sweaty Arquette clutching a Pee-Wee Herman doll. Check out World Red Eye's gallery from the night here.
Why is this big news? Because Beacher's a refreshing option in an otherwise stale club scene. Plus, wherever Beacher's Madness lands, the B-list celebrities will follow. As Lesley Abravanel writes, "Small folk and enormous egos. Sounds perfect for Miami."

The long-awaited Gaga's Workshop is now officially open at Barneys in New York.
Lady Gaga was on hand last night — in a custom Chanel couture dress, specially designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the occasion — to cut the ribbon and welcome inside the likes of Prabal Gurung, Carolyn Murphy, and Alexander Wang.
The store's fifth floor is completely transformed until Jan. 2, filled with chocolate Alexander McQueen armadillo shoes, studded press-on nails, and candle replicas of Gaga’s head that cry when lit. Inflatable cartoonish sculptures and taxicab wraps promoted the opening around the city, and Barneys's windows, too, have been Gaga-fied. "My favorite window I think is [the] one window that looks like my boudoir and it's covered in blonde hair," Gaga told WWD. "It's gorgeous."
Despite all the expenditure, Barneys expects to break even on the promotion, its chief executive Mark Lee said. Twenty-five percent of the workshop's sales will go to Gaga's new Born This Way Foundation, which focuses on youth empowerment; Lee added that the store hopes to raise over $1 million for the cause.
