Flashing Lights: Lady Gaga

November 17, 2009

Freakish. bizarre. tranny. sinister. pretentious. avant garde. creative. genius.

There are many adjectives to describe Lady Gaga. But to do so, is to categorize her and she’s really in a league of her own.

From her hit song “Just Dance” to her latest collaborative efforts with Beyoncé, Lady Gaga is causing quite a stir in the world of music and fashion. She perturbs just as many as she inspires and if she didn’t have a handle on the fashion scene, the Accessories Council would not have named her 2009’s Stylemaker.

So what is it about Lady Gaga that has many going gaga?

Perhaps it is the intricately planned costumes by her Haus of Gaga (costume design team) or her ability to wear the most unimaginably high heels that have people labeling her our generation’s Madonna.

Throughout fashion week her influence was apparent and during Halloween, dressing as Lady Gaga was the equivalent of dressing as Amy Winehouse in 2007.

With these observations, I’m led to believe that:

– the world has gone mad and/or

– Gaga allows us to live vicariously through her as we all struggle to channel our inner badass

Or maybe Lady Gaga is just a breath of fresh air….  As equally talented as she is stylish, leaving many people afraid of what she’ll do next.  Her fashion is not for the faint of heart and if for some strange reason she falls off that wagon, her international appeal and slew of faithful fans who support her music will suffice.

I have grown to love Lady Gaga and while I may not always understand what she has on, I can appreciate the ballsy confidence she exudes as she parades down the street in her knickers.

Her creative freedom is enviable. Gaga does quite frankly whatever she wants to and she’s taking no prisoners.

Sooner or later, she will win over your heart, so you may as well get on board now.
