The fashion industry has long been a safe haven for the gays. In fact, I don’t think it could exist without the stylish homos. Now, its the transgender community’s turn to get the spotlight.

Lea T made a big name for herself by snagging Givenchy campaigns and Australian model Andrej Pejic became the first transgender to cover Elle. Barneys jumps on the trend by featuring transgender models for their new campaign.

Titled “Brothers, Sisters, Sons & Daughters,” the purpose of the campaign is designed to boost trans visibility. 17 models were photographed by Bruce Weber and interviewed by Vanity Fair’s Patricia Bosworth. Their stories will be shared on Barneys New York’s official website.

“I hope that my photographs and films of these 17 new friends, who are transgender men and women, convey the respect I have for them and how I stand in awe of their courage to face the world,” Weber told WWD.

The models participating in the campaign include Arin Andrews, Katie Hill, Edie Charles, Valentijn de Hingh, Ashley de la Cruz, Sawyer Devuyst, Peche Di, Dezjorn Gauthier, Trevon Haynes, Eve Lindley, Niki M’nray, Ryley Pogensky, Ines Rau, May Simon, Ahya Taylor, Maxie Neu, and Gisele Xtravaganza. Hill and Andrews are pictured above, left and right respectively.

Disney and Barney’s New York have just released a new video called “Electric Holiday” to get people (and cartoons) excited about holiday fashion.

As the video starts off, Minnie Mouse finds herself on a fashion adventure in Paris at a fashion show where she and all the other Disney characters will be walking the runway in Lanvin. They get their makeup done, but it’s Tinkerbell’s magic touch that turns these cute characters, into runway divas. Minnie and essentially becomes “Skinny Minnie“.

Watch as Minnie embarks on a fantastical fashion adventure in Paris, where she walks the runway in Lanvin and rubs elbows with the cartoon version of fashion-world figures like Linda Evangelista, Daphne Guinness, Naomi Campbell, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga and many more. There are so many Disney characters in it too – either walking the runway, or in the audience like Cinderella‘s evil stepmother and step sisters, Drizella and Anastasia.

See What You Can Buy Inside Gaga’s Workshop

In: Fashion, Music, Tyrell

Monday at midnight, Barney’s New York unveiled Gaga’s Workshop. The Christmas display at Barneys’ flagship store in the upper East side was a buzz with fans from all walks of life looking to capture a few pieces of memorabilia that you could only find at such a store.

The 5,500-square-foot space has Gaga’s paws all over it. There is no denying it appears to be a Tim Burton-esque but it still looks like you’re stepping inside the twisted and brilliant mind that is Lady Gaga. “We wanted it all to be whimsical and fun, with a sense of art and fashion,” said Gaga, who designed the shop with stylist Nicola Formichetti.

The store has something for everyone and anyone. While some of the items seem a bit knick-knacky, you can’t help but want a piece of Gaga nostalgia. From items like a snow globe commemorating the workshop at Barney’s to a chocolate cookie resembling those famous Alexander McQueen shoes to a monster doll fit with a unicorn horn, there should be something for someone on your list… or at least the hardcore little monsters. Check out some photos of the shop and items for purchase below.
