Lady Gaga Mourns the Death of Her Friend Azzedine Alaia

Lady Gaga has written a touching tribute to remember the late fashion designer Azzedine Alaia, who passed away today at the age of 77.

The entertainer took to Instagram to share several photos of her and Azzedine, along with a beautiful message.

“I’ll mourn forever the loss of my friend. A true genius in not only fashion but in his heart. He was a king and had the highest standards of design and work ethic. He was so giving, so loving, his heart so full and pure,” Gaga wrote.

“I️’d watch in awe as he hand made each and every piece, his fingers touching the fabric like poetry. Then he would want to feed us all, and cook with his own hands and talk for hours at the table while his dogs would run around joyfully smelling the delicious food he made us,” she continued.

“To say he was special would be an understatement. To say he was integral, important and influential to fashion is simply not enough. There was no one who did what he did. No one knew a woman’s body like him. He should be celebrated as one of the greatest fashion designers the world has ever known. I️ love you, Azzedine. I️’m devastated I️ didn’t get to say goodbye. I️ love you,” Gaga concluded.

Jessica Biel Covers 'Elle' January 2013

Jessica Biel rocks a Dior look on the cover of Elle magazine’s January 2013 issue, on newsstands December 18.

Here’s what the 30-year-old actress, who posed in the magazine with designers Jean Paul Gaultier, Azzedine Alaïa, Christian Louboutin, and Giambattista Valli, had to share in the issue:

On choosing her wedding dress: “I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear. I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuchsia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink. It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined. [Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream.”

On married life: “It means always having someone there to open the pickle jar…to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with. Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing.”

On Justin Timberlake as a domestic husband: “He bakes pies. He’s Southern, so he’s got all this influence from his grandma. He does a three-layer pie…and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn’t happen all that often, thank God. Otherwise, it would be a big problem.”
