Just Be a Drag, Don't Be a Queen. Lord Gaga is Jo Calderone
Aug 29, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
Not a Queen, but in drag, Lord Gaga A.K.A Jo Calderone took the VMA stage last night to open the night with a testosterone induced version of You and I. Gaga's 1950's greaser alter ego comes with full pompadour and a drinking problem that we kind of want to get rowdy with. Get the cross-dressed look and relive that epic performance (with Queen's guitarist! Brian May).
Got a little Calderone in you? Get it on the outs like this.
A slim tuxedo jacket keeps it classy: $130 from Topshop
A white hanes T keeps it hood: you know where to get it.
Trousers without the snake: $275 from Rag and Bone - a Barneys exclusive
Men like it belted: $95 from Barneys
Keep your socks on high: $8 from Topshop
Shiny shoe black! Gaga without a heel? Not even in the shower. Only for theater: $100 from Dr. Martens
Missed Jo Calderone's speech? (fucking Irene, no cable bullshit). It's okay, watch it here, now.
Now relive the musical performance.
You and I should go out sometime.
