Lady Gaga has left a wake of fashion destruction after making a one-day appearance at London Fashion Week yesterday. She was invited (for whatever reason, probably just stunt modelling casting) to take to the catwalk and officially open the showcase for hat designer Phillip Treacy, and of course she couldn’t just show up and act like a normal model. Nope. Gaga had to make the experience into “ART.” Can you imagine being one of the stylists who puts together these wacky outfits for the sake a series of seconds-long photo ops? I guess it must be worth it for Gaga’s team to invest the time and money since we’re engaging in the inevitable Monday Morning Quarterback discussion of these ensembles.
First up on Gaga’s agenda was this relatively cute jade green dress with velvet detailing and matching boots that she paired with a bizarre floral headdress that encased her whole head, aside from that famous face. It goes without saying that she looked entirely ridiculous.
This is what Gaga actually wore on the runway. I guess her prediction about “mint” being big was a bit off the mark, no? I don’t even know what to say about this hot pink mess — it wasn’t even part of the show, but Gaga owned it anyway.
After the show, Gaga donned a monochrome pants and jacket combo that she paired with massive mouse ears. Poor Mickey. He never asked for this.
Then (and yes, this is still the same evening) she shrouded herself in a fur-lined mess of a burka-inspired outfit. Only Gaga’s eyes were visible thanks to a brown silk scarf over her face that was capped by a pink jeweled headdress of sorts. Basically, she’s trying to offend several groups at the same time. How avant garde.
Finally, Gaga decided it was time to end her brief reign of fashion madness in London. Here she is this morning whilst departing her hotel for the airport and appearing almost normal by Gaga standards in a shirt also sported by Vivienne Westwood. Amsterdam, beware!
