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?

she’s this generation’s madonna: a showman, pushing the envelope with the risque. but she has a better voice than madonna. and time will tell if she has the business sense to keep herself interesting.


I was watching with my 4year odl daughter. It’s family tv. What the ****.

Talk about a total copycat of Madonna except Madonna was original and terrific. That performance was horrific. She can’t sing very well either.

I love Lady Gaga, including her outfits, even though last night’s performance fell a little flat for me. I did, however, get a big kick out of the cameras trying to avoid shots of Gaga’s scantily clad rear end. It’s Lady Gaga, people. Good luck with that!

It seems incredible that a show that is supposedly “family entertainment” would display a burlesque type of show. Her type of act is way “over the top” for a singing contest. Doesn’t the people in charge look at the rehearsals? Get a clue, IDOL, we don’t need purient sex for our entertainment.

A complete confection of fantasy and wonderful entertainment. Not since Missing person’s Dale Bozzio have we seen this kind of one of a kind creations in the Music Industry.

Lady Gaga could wear a paper bag and she would still be popular. People love her for her catchy beats and strong vocals, not just what she wears. Her style is just a piece of her, not the complete package. She is THE reigning pop queen and I am sure the haters are the ones that criticized Madonna in the 80s and Britney in the 90s. If you don’t like it, turn the channel people!

She’s no where near Madonna nor is she trying to copy Madonna. She is Ga Ga.
She is however channeling Dale Bozzio.
Google Missing Persons from the 80′s images and you’ll see what I mean. Dale Bozzio was the first to dress like this.

Janeypaney on

She’s becoming boring.
