Lady Gaga’s Little Sister Shines in Fashion Shoot

Lady Gaga’s Little Sister Shines in Fashion Shoot

Natali also happens to work at Joanne Trattoria, which has been the recipient of some bad reviews (the New York Daily News deemed it "the worst thing since herpes") when she's not immersed in her fashion studies. Describing the staff — who she was photographed with — as "like a family unit" to, she added, "I do a little bit of everything and adore my family."

The fact that Natali agreed to star in this photo shoot is surprising since she's rarely seen and typically allows her sister to get all the attention. But she did accompany Lady Gaga (real name Stefani Germanotta) down the red carpet at the CFDA Fashion Awards in June 2011. Natali also starred in Gaga's 2010 music video for "Telephone," her collaboration with Beyonce.

But although the photo spread paints Joanne as an extravagant place where people come to see and be seen, that's not exactly the case, says creative director Christian Fleres. "Everything about the shoot was over the top from the oversized meatballs and the 20 pound fish on the table to the big hair and jewelry," he revealed. "We had drama in mind the whole time, for that day everyone was playing the superhero version of themselves."
Sounds like Lady Gaga would be proud!

Lose Something? These Tiny Stickers Will Find It

Lose Something? These Tiny Stickers Will Find It

Good news for anyone prone to losing the TV remote.

A group of developers created a series of Bluetooth-powered stickers that track down the objects you're most likely to misplace. The StickNFind stickers are about the size of a U.S. quarter and sync with a smartphone app. They have a range of about 100 feet and a battery life that reportedly lasts almost a year.

Using them is easy: The objects you tag with the stickers are displayed on the app's screen, which lets you know how far away you are from them. If you lose something that's tagged, you can tap the object on your phone's screen, and the sticker will buzz and light up.

The developers say the stickers are also handy for finding your luggage at the airport. With the "Find It" feature, you can choose which object you want to track -- in this case, your suitcase(s) -- and you'll receive an alert whenever it comes into range. So, instead of crowding around baggage claim while hundreds of bags pile up on the conveyor belt, you can relax in the back of the line until your phone buzzes.

The group behind the project is currently raising funds through an Indiegogo campaign. At the time of this writing, funding was at $93,007 -- far past its original goal of $70,000. There are still 41 days left to donate. The group expects to release its first batch of SkickNFind stickers by March 2013.
