Another Night, Another Barely-There Armani Catsuit for Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga exploded onto the American Idol stage last night donning a dazzling fishnet ensemble from Giorgio Armani while performing her hit new single, “Alejandro.” The Italian designer is a clear favorite of the statement-making star, whose out-of-this-world Grammy dress and stellar Monster Ball tour costumes were Armani’s creations. “To complement the spirit of Lady Gaga herself, I have let my imagination run free, and the outfit I have created for her for American Idol is pure fantasy,” the designer said in a release. The ever-busy chanteuse–who also performed at the Met Gala in a sheer Armani catsuit earlier this week–took to the stage in a silk mesh bodysuit, featuring embroidered Chantilly lace as well as sparkling crystals and jet beading. The look was completed with a silk organza cape, a dark hood and matching black patent stiletto boots. Though Lady Gaga looked absolutely amazing with her skin-tight look, we have to wonder if the dramatic ensemble was approved by the judges or deemed to be a “little pitchy.” Tell us: What do you think about Lady Gaga’s Giorgio Armani costume?

Laday GaGa is not an original nor is she an “Artist” I believe Madonna did the whole pushing the envelope thing like 100 years ago…So over it…A true “Artist” should not have to push the envelope to be noticed…All they need is their talent but I guess when you don’t have any you resort to plan push the envelope!! Shame on you Lady GaGa and especially American Idol for allowing her to perform isn’t AI supposed to be a “Family” show? So much for that…How can our children have respect for others and themselves with ppl like Lady GaGa around??

These comments as well as her success appear to be strong evidence of her true talent. Perhaps her motto is like the song of one of her good friends is “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”. She definitely looks like she is having fun with her videos, songs and clothes.

For all the people complaining about her outfit, did you READ the article at all?! Armani designed her costume! Be mad at HIM for it! She also wears up-in-coming, no-name designers, so if you wanna be mad at someone, be mad at them!

And AI sucks! Everyone is saying Gaga is a Madonna wanna be, why didn’t anyone say Harry Connick whatever is trying to be Frank Sinatra wanna be?! His performance was BORING! I turned it OFF! And all the contestants WERE LIP SINGING. Gaga is the only one worth watching!

I’m shocked at how many people are calling Gaga perverse! She’s definitely pushing the boundaries, but more within the lines of expanding conceptions of female artists. She’s not meaninglessly writhing around to capture a male audience or she wouldn’t be making such daring fashion choices. And for those who say she isn’t talented, what are you listening to? She’s might be Celine or Whitney, but she can sing as well as Stevie Nicks, Carole King, or Cher!

I understand that every generation has their music and style. I understand that the music industry will do whatever is necessary to earn a buck. However, I am very disappointed that FOX would allow the lack of clothing that this artist felt was necessary to perform on the American Idol show. I thought that IDOL was a family show that allowed families to view without fear of being exposed to sexual content, violence or inappropriate language. I guess the network felt that allowing some half naked woman to run around in a thong and rub up against greased men on stage was family friendly. NOT!! Shame on you American Idol.

I think Lady Gaga’s Giorgio Armani Costume is so her!

A total Madonna wannabe. She’ll never make it – here today, gone tomorrow. Tomorrow can’t come soon enough.

I like Lady GaGa fine but I was not impressed last night at all…and neither was my 12 year old. Her song was stupid, the outfit was awful and thank the Lord my 7 year old was in bed already. My 12 year old daughter thought it was awful and I have to agree. But she is a big name right now and they need that to bring ppl in I guess. I prefer Harry Connick Jr. myself. But I have always been his fan!!!!

Maureen on

She is a Madonna clone…not something I would want
