Will the Real Lady Gaga Please Stand Up
Apr 14, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Theatricality. Aside from a fairly epic episode of Glee, it is the main ingredient in the delicious, nutritious and seared delirious Ahi salad that is Lady Gaga. Our generation doesn't have a Bowie, or a Mercury, or a P-Funk to blow our minds as we blow our rails. But we do have a Gaga, who takes a bit of all of that, mixes it together, throws on a rich haute couture dressing and calls it Pop. For her May Harper's Bazaar spread, the Lady keeps the S.S. Freak Show on a steady course and the results are fantastic.
Terry Richardson catches the popstar in her natural element: tranny heels, masks and bodysuits. Providing that element is stylist and Gay Friday, Nicola Formichetti, who keeps Her Royal Gagness resplendent in her staples -- Mugler, Alexander McQueen, Versace and Dior -- with a sprinkling of a custom Francesco Scognamiglio bodysuit here and a gothic Tex Saverio dress there.
facial prosthetics bones about it, when it comes to putting on a show, there's no one who can do it like Lady Gaga. Whether you care to see the show is a matter of personal opinion, but as long as she keeps making me dance, laugh and maybe even occasionally think, I've got my ticket.
