The fun wasn't over for the Met Gala 2013 attendees in NYC last night as they flocked to the Standard Hotel following the ball for the official afterparty at the Boom Boom Room. Madonna stripped out of her bum-baring Met Gala outfit and changed into a fishnet body stocking and black lacy lingerie to mingle with guests like Katy Perry, Allison Williams, and Frank Ocean. She wasn't the only star who made a costume change — Amanda Seyfried took off her gown and changed into a baggy black t-shirt to hit the dance floor with Frank. Meanwhile, Miranda Kerr met up with January Jones, Jennifer Lawrence arrived with Marion Cotillard, Gerard Butler mingled with Karolina Kurkova, andNicole Richie connected with Kirsten Dunst, and Mary-Kate Olsen snuggled with boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy. Mary-Kate and Olivier weren't the only couple at the late-night bash, as Jennifer Morrison was spotted holding hands with her Once Upon a Time costar Sebastian Stan and Kate Bosworth hugged Michael Polish.

Everyone needs someone to look up to, so for the role-models-themed Fall 2012 issue of i-D Magazine, Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi photographed a litany of the industry's boldface names for a series of beautiful covers.
Gisele Bundchen is captured in black and white, surrounded by wavy tendrils of her own hair. Isabeli Fontana, made up like a classic '40s femme fatale, makes a neck brace look like the chicest, easiest-to-wear accessory there is, and Karen Elson's fiery hair is pushed into an extremely experimental shape.
A look at the rest of the models' hair — styled into tonsorial perfection by Luigi Murenu — here in the gallery.

The 2012 London Olympics have come to a close! The closing ceremony wrapped up in London last night, and there were many famous Brits who took part in the fun. The theme was a celebration of British music, and British bands Muse, the Spice Girls, George Michael, The Who, and even the guys of One Direction were on stage! The production included a particularly optimistic note from Monty Python's Eric Idle with "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life."
There was also a tribute to British fashion, with models Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Karen Elson strutting their stuff. The royals were in attendance to see the spectacle, with Kate Middleton and Prince Harry having prime seats. Check out all the closing ceremony pictures here!
Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Georgia May Jagger, and a slew of other famous British models turned the London Olympics closing ceremony into one of the world's most-watched runway shows Sunday night. The models — each clad in different metallic gold designs from some of the best designers working in London — were wheeled into the ceremony inside billboard-sized photos of themselves while David Bowie's song "Fashion" filled Olympic Stadium. The images were stripped away to reveal the live models, who walked to the center of the field to glitter and pose in front of the very global audience for a few moments before walking out.
"It's such an amazing platform for the brand, having billions and billions of people watching," said Christopher Kane, who spent some 80 hours working on the coat and pants Stella Tennant wore during the ceremony. "That's another reason why I wanted to do something different, instead of a dress."
Sam McKnight, who worked on the models' hair, observed that the closing ceremony "was about British icons, not just athletics." Jourdan Dunn, who walked the runway in a dress by Jonathan Saunders, called the evening the "highlight of my career so far." Karen Elson said she couldn't "begin to express how much I love Naomi, Kate, Georgia," and the other models who walked with her. Makeup artist Val Garland called the fashion portion of the show "the best moment ever!"
Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Erdem, and other British fashion houses also created outfits for the occasion. A look at who wore what here in the gallery.
Kate Moss was one of eight British models to strut her stuff at the Olympics Closing Ceremony last night. She — along with Georgia Jagger, Stella Tennant, Naomi Campbell, Karen Elson, Lily Cole, Lily Donaldson, and Jourdan Dunn — were wheeled out into the stadium inside billboard-sized images of themselves. They burst through the paper to reveal themselves in the flesh, clad in various gold-toned dressed designed by British designers. David Gandy was the lone male model to join the group. Kate wore a gown by her late friend Alexander McQueen, while Georgia wore something from Victoria Beckham. The gang made their way around Olympic Stadium to a medley of David Bowie songs, including his tune "Fashion."
Karen Elson has partnered with Beck on a rendition of Fleetwood Mac's "Gold Dust Woman" as part of an upcoming tribute album to the legendary band, out Aug. 14.
Elson announced her involvement with the album, titled Just Tell Me That You Want Me: a Tribute to Fleetwood Mac, on Twitter Monday evening, saying that she's "very excited" about the track. It's one of 17 on the album, contributed by a variety of artists: MGMT covered "Future Games," Best Coast added its take on "Rhiannon," and Antony contributed a rendition of the classic song "Landslide." The Kills, for which Kate Moss's husband Jamie Hince is guitarist, covered "Dreams."
It's a fitting project for Elson — who was a founding member of The Citizens Band and released a solo album, The Ghost Who Walks in 2010 — because, really, she's been channeling the bohemian flair of Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks for years. A peek at the best of those looks, here in the gallery.

>> Chanel and New York's Museum of Modern Art honored Pedro Almodovar last night at the museum's annual film benefit. “Everyone loves Pedro Almodóvar,” Karl Lagerfeld said of the lengthy guest list. “He is a genius.”
Many were thus dressed in Chanel — Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Wintour, Elizabeth Olsen, Chloe Moretz — save a few: Lara Stone came in Calvin Klein, Joan Smalls in Tom Ford, Miranda Kerr in Peter Pilotto, and Karen Elson in Roberto Cavalli.
>> Last year, H&M shot models Liya Kebede, Stella Tennant, Kasia Struss, Mariacarla Boscono, Du Juan, and Fei Fei Sun with their family members and friends for its holiday campaign. It looks like the retailer is going for the same concept again this holiday season: see Georgia May Jagger and her mom, Jerry Hall; Kristen McMenamy and her sons; and Karen Elson and her fraternal twin sister, Kate Elson, in a preview of this year's set, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.
>> Karen Elson's particular breed of Victorian-rocker irreverence meets accessories for a limited-edition collaboration with Nine West Vintage America, now available online. Launched last night with an exclusive fete — where Elson serenaded the crowd in a country-tinged acoustic set — the collection features a jazzed-up assortment of granny boots, tapestry frame bags, and peep-toe platform wedges. “My dream of designing a collection that’s a true reflection of me has now come to life through this collaboration,” Elson explained. Infused with a bit of Dust Bowl-era grittiness, leathers are well-worn but glitterized, jewelry features oxidized metal, and bags have a distinctly antique feel. The collection is priced at $32 for jewelry to $269 for shoes. Click through to see all the pieces from the collection — plus the campaign images.
