Lady Gaga's Fashion Sense: 'There Are No Rules'

She’s rocked the runway in Paris, worn gravity-defying heels and even lived in a custom-made vessel for a day. But Lady Gaga‘s take on fashion isn’t so far out. “I’m mostly inspired by shapes, and using the body to create iconography,” she tells Elton John in the latest issue of V magazine. “Leather culture and high-street punk fashion. I would say perfecto jackets occupy most of my fashion thoughts.” It’s a far cry from the woman who’s been sporting ‘protrusions’ on her shoulders and forehead lately, and often wears her heavy makeup to bed. But Gaga, who has relationships with such designers as Mugler’s Nicola Formichetti and the late Alexander McQueen, says “there are no rules” when it comes to her fashion sense. “We were laughing on the set of the ‘Judas’ video — we had 50 racks of couture,” she explains, “and I wore leather, Motorhead panties made of a vintage T-shirt, custom from young designers who are my friends, my own creations, and archive Christian Lacroix from a museum.” But her style doesn’t always fall into place so easily; when John asks her about her future, Gaga replies, “I don’t know. I’m still trying to figure out what I’m going to wear later.” For more on Gaga’s style inspiration — and her new album, Born This Way — check out the summer issue of V magazine, on newsstands now.

Whoever compared her with Dale Bozzio is right. It brings a whole new meaning to Gaga’s supposed “originality”. Rip off.

Personally i think that Lady GagME Probably looks like a Young banana faced Joan Rivers under all that “Plastic makeup” and ridiculous outfits. Homely is not the word. I give her props for Art ism, having some danceable song choices, But most are clones of Madonna songs from the 90’s….
I kept thinking while watching her on Idol last night with the SKUNK Hair that if we were to see her ‘with out’ a all that Styling and over produced music, We’d probably think she was a nobody.

Lady Gaga marches to her own drum!!!! She a smart person and she loves it when she get that attention. So down deep there is a insecure girl reaching out in a way to express herself her way.

FIRST INDICATION – LESS = MORE.

I say hurray for Lady Gaga. Her youthful energy
and creativity is astounding. She isn’t trying to make up for anything. She seems to want to explore the body with creating moving art with sound.
Well educated and articulate and has done some
deep internal work. It shows and what fun!
If you don’t get it, why do you need to degrade her.
More about you than her.

She is SO creepy. I’m so glad the world isn’t like her or this would be a scary place!

Oh please ppl she is doing the same thing that Grace Jones did back in the day, No big deal. I think she is just being her and loving it while it last.
