â¢ After taking a bow at New York's Radio City Music Hall following a sold-out four-night stand, Lady Gaga hightailed it to 1 Oak in the meatpacking district to celebrate. The pop diva wasn't suffering from a lack of energy: At one point, she shook up a bottle of champagne, held it at crotch level and sprayed the crowd, so even her date - designer Marc Jacobs - got doused!

Much has been made of people who live beyond their means. When you see a neighbor bring home a fancy new car, you can't help but wonder how she can afford it on her salary. However, you can't assume you know how much she (or anybody) makes unless you've seen her tax returns.
Dear FSB: I recently purchased a design/drawing from an illustrator to use as a design for my T-shirt. Since I paid for the drawing and it was originally my idea, do I own all rights to the design? Can I even copyright it?
Toss that basic black and indulge in a fashion fantasy this year. We asked the four gorgeous stars of ABC's new TV show "Cashmere Mafia" to take part in a little experiment: If you could slip into a different guise for a day, what would it be?
In February 2007, Robert Duffy sensed something was wrong with his longtime business partner, the fashion designer Marc Jacobs.
