Fashion News Roundup: Victoria Beckham Covers Harper's Bazaar UK, Gaga Turns 26, and Mary Katrantzou is Considering Menswear

Victoria Beckham Covers Harpers UK: Queen Victoria (pre-lob pob cut) covers May's Harper's Bazaar UK looking flaw-free in that Prada bodysuit the fashion set just can't seem to fold away. The glossy was the first to feature Vic on the cover as a serious fashion contender back in 2009, and apparently, the super soccer mom hasn't been on a vacation alone with husband David since. A blessing and a curse... {Harper's Bazaar UK} What Does Your Handbag Says About You? Are you a canvas tote toting toots or a Hermes-carrying honey? Your bag of choice (or, well, budget allowance) says more about you than you might think. {Refinery29} Happy Birthday Lady Gaga! She's no longer a little Lady. Stefani Germanotta was born this way/day 26 years ago today! To celebrate, take a look back at some of her most fibbity fab fash mag spreads-- there've been a lot. {FabSugar} Mary Katrantzou Menswear Line: Is more Mary K menswear on the way? The it-designer known for her photorealist prints says it was a "happy accident" that she started designing for guys, after Henry Holland peeped a pic of Mary's male friend donning one of her women's blazers. There's no official line yet, but Mary K's not ruling it out for the future-- and we can already see Kanye getting in on one of her fly floral get-ups. {Vogue UK}

Mexico Getting Its Own Size Chart: After years of mucho complaints and returns due to problematic fit issues, international retailers are banding together to create a unique Mexican size chart. According to research, the body shapes of average Mexican men and women are vastly different from standard market sizing--experts think the Mexican apparel industry could save $400 billion by 2017 with the proposed changes. {NY Mag}

Kate Winslet Cringes at Her Titanic Nude Scenes: Most moviegoers regard Kate Winslet's semi-nude scene in Titanic as a classic piece of cinematic history-- and that's exactly where the actress would like it to stay. At last night's Titanic 3D premiere, Kate told Metro that she couldn't bear to watch the clip, saying it's "like being forced to go through a photo album of your former self for three and a half hours solidly." So I guess that "Draw me like one of your French girls" line probably wouldn't work anymore either? {Metro}

Meet Instagram's Fashion Rival, Trendabl: As Insta-die hards, we're secretly a little scared about this-- but also pretty intrigued. New iPhone app Trendabl doesn't quite roll off the tongue the way that, say, Instagram does, but it promises to be the next big photo-driven social style app on the map. It sounds really similar to our old fave, except that post-filter, your pretty-fied pics are filtered into fashion categories. And with bigwig fashion types like the Olsens, DVF, Michael Kors, and Brad Goreski already using Trendabl, we might just have to try it for ourselves. {The Fashion Spot}

The Spy Who Shook Her Little Tush on the Catwalk: For the second year running, 'sexy spy' Anna Chapman walked in Moscow Fashion Week. Seems that being deported from America on conspiracy charges has somehow done wonders for her modeling career! Since her arrest, gingery Chapman has also hosted a Russian TV show and edited a magazine. Sending quite a lovely message there, aye kiddos? {NY Post}

Take a Tour of Zara's Knockoff: Zara? Selling designer knockoffs? Why, I never! The Times takes a tour of the Midtown Manhattan store where designer's dreams go to die-- and are resurrected as mainstream mutations aka 'adaptations': Zara. {New York Times}
