The many silhouettes of Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga on Launch my Line said that when designing a piece or choosing a piece to wear she thinks about a shape and asked the designers that if their aesthetic were to walk through an open door what shape would it leave?

Wondering about the shape that Gaga  likes herself I drew out the silhouette to eight of her outfits. See if you can recognize any of these.

As you can see there are a lot of shoulder pads and outfits that accentuate the hips. Can you guess these too? Just comment to say where you saw her wear the outfits or post a picture of Gaga in the same outfit  if you can.

I’ll draw more if I get requests.  Good luck figuring out the outfits!

Gaga Fashion

I’m sure everyone knows Lady Gaga’s got fashion whether you like it or not.  Liked that zipper eye she wore on American idol?  I like her fearless style.  Aristist have been known to wear outrageous things.  Sometimes its a hit and others its a miss.  It takes someone fearless to truly find hits.

One thing that I’ve learned from her fashion is who her inspiration is and I think they are awesome.  I’ve been learning a lot about fashion from Lady Gaga.  Funny considering she has a song called fashion where she lists off some of the top designers.  I was kind of clueless before to tell you the truth…I didn’t know what Manolos where besides that they were designer shoes.

There’s Margiela

Like the shoulder pads?

Then there’s Chaylan Have you seen the bubble dress?

 

Some people have rightly commented that Lady Gaga’s haus created an almost exact replica of the Chaylan dress instead of buying one.  The thing I have to disagree about with this post is that Chaylan did not miss out on publicity.  I found out about it because Lady Gaga’s always saying his name and since I liked the bubble dress I found out who’s idea it was.  And it was a good thing she never claimed it was her idea, or else that really would have been stealing.

The list goes on and on really for designers that I either found out because of her or found out more about them. I’m sure you don’t want an entire list of them.  It would really get ridiculous.  But by learning about designers I’ve found the ones that I like.  I’m sure that will be others that I like, but at least know I can say I have favorites.

And has anyone else noticed that Lady Gaga’s style has been progressing? At first it consisted of catsuits, shoulder pads, head scarves, and no pants stuff with fairly plain designs.  Now she has the zipper eye-star outfit, the prism dress, the black and white lightning dress, the bubble dress, the chrome dress, and who knows what else.

Fashion puppet

April 10, 2009 at 4:12 am (fashion, rant) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

Sometimes I think that we are all fashion puppets even if we don’t want to be.  How does the fashion industry decide what’s going to be hot next season.  I know they look at trends of what people are buying, but they have to look ahead and predict what people will want to buy. 

One problem with this is that if things are out of fashion like a certain cut of jeans you can’t find them and all cuts of jeans do different things for people so not everyone can wear every cut.  Skinny Jeans tends to make the butt look bigger because the legs are thin so the butt is accentuated.  On the other hand flair jeans make the butt look smaller because of the balance of the flair.  And flair jeans have been the main jeans selling for YEARS.  I’m kind of tired of them.  So do they continue to be in because people continue to buy them? And are skinny jeans in now, because boots and ballet flats are in. People need different types of clothes available because different body types demand different clothing, not to mention that people have different fashion sensiblities.

What I’m afraid of is that shoulder pads are supposedly coming back.  If they come in full force it will be hard to find things without some in there.  I’ve already bought something unknowingly with shoulder pads in them. I wasn’t totally happy about that.

Do you feel like a fashion puppet? Forced to buy what’s in style or not buy anything new at all?
