5 Things To Know This AM — Oct 08 2012

Apparently Lady Gaga's peace sign tattoo wasn't just a random impulse: The singer was recently awarded the LennonOno Grant for Peace by Yoko Ono herself. Gaga was lauded for her LGBT activism and Born This Way message, and will donate the money to the Elton John AIDS Foundation. (Rolling Stone)
After leaving Twenty8Twelve, designer Savannah Miller decided to launch her own eponymous label, and now the lookbook's out: Dree Hemingway models basic, comfortable knits starting at $30. Guess we all know where to get our chunky sweater fix. (Vogue UK)
Fendi has launched an online pop-up shop solely dedicated to Baguettes. No, not the bread, the handbag — the brand's most iconic bag, as a matter of fact. The site has close to 100 different Baguette styles being sold, with oodles of mini-baguette key chains. (Fashion Telegraph)
Surprise, surprise: Anna Dello Russo's H&M collection sold out in less time than you need to take a fashion shower when you're running late to work. Of course, a good chunk of it is on eBay, where you can buy a suitcase for a charming $700. (Grazia UK)
Teen Vogue just tapped Elaine Welteroth, currently of Glamour, to be the mag's new beauty director. Makes sense, because she's freakin' gorgeous. Welteroth will be replacing Eva Chen, who reportedly left her position in August. (Fashionista)
