Lady Gaga‘s holding on tight to the most inappropriate word. After the Phillip Treacy show, when Mother Monster sported a cape of a half dozen Adrienne Landau fox tails, she also clutched a pink and yellow clutch with the glittering word that’s becoming chicer and chicer by the freakin’ moment. We were gagging when we heard the word on Asher Levine‘s runway. We were like W8WTF when we saw it on Zebra Katz. And we flipped when we saw someone fisting it at David Barton’s Gym. C’mon ladies, you know the word, and we’re taking it back.
After New York Fashion Week has wrapped, we must cross the pond over to England for London Fashion Week. Singer Lady Gaga, who’s known for her out-of-the-box fashion sense, chilled out with designer Phillip Treacy at his runway rehearsal and she was wearing an interesting take on sportswear.
I asked that question in the FashionIndie offices and the resounding answer was, yes, since it’s only the second day of Paris Fashion Week. Boo, I say. Boo! Call me cynical — and openly bored by everyone else — but Gareth Pugh’s spring 2012 offering was dynamic, breathtaking and futuristic without being hokey. And then there was the added layer of theatricality sorely missing from runway shows since Alexander McQueen‘s untimely passing last year. I think it’s safe to say it won’t get better than this.
Lady Gaga is moving on to her next creative endeavor: an intern for fashion’s favorite milliner, Phillip Treacy. For those of you who may not have the pleasure of knowing who Treacy is, he is the designer responsible for some of the world’s most iconic headwear (think Princess Beatrice‘s wildly popular fascinator, Carrie Bradshaw’s “something blue” feathered topper in the Sex & The City wedding, and many a piece for the late Alexander McQueen ). Hats off to Mother Monster (pun completely intended) for humbly starting at the bottom of the millinery, we can’t wait to see what type of tops she comes up with.
