Gaga gets Prada-ed!

06 May 2010

So . . . did you enjoy our Met Ball coverage? Were your eyes satisfied with the glittering array of fashwan on display? Did Katy Perry’s very novel luminous dress satisfy your quirkometer? You didn’t feel there was anyone missing? No-one at all? NOBODY?

How about a clue? Gaga Ooooh –la la? Oh yes. Now we come to think of it, WHERE WAS GAGA? Trapped inside the building squeezing her way into the diamond-encrusted bodystocking for her performance that night. Although she did a turn on stage for the assembled VVVIPs, somewhat vexingly for the world-wide gang of little Monsters, Gaga did not grace the red carpet with her twinkley toes.

The reason for this shocking omission given was “because she was busy preparing for her four-song performance” Whaaaaat? That’s not fair. Another blow being that no photographs from inside the Met Ball are ever released – it’s the red carpet and that’s it.

Thank heavens then, that the thoughtful Prada gang have kindly released the picture of Her Ladyness cozied up to Miuccia Prada, in whose designs she was clad that night (their black shawl-collar tuxedo) a surprisingly relaxed choice for the songstress on a night when everyone has outdone their own fashion chops in the glittery department.

Doesn’t she look lovely? Both of them seem v relaxed and smiley – a cockle warming image indeed. Since Gaga frequently claims in interviews that she doesn’t have any friends in the music biz and only feels close to her fans, while Mrs Prada has a reputation for fearsomeness and taking no nonsense we ADORE the thought of these two bonding on a genuine level. Ahh.

Meanwhile, we got a sneaky heads up on Gaga’s next big appearance. After wearing an assortment of bespoke Armani outfits on the night of the Grammys and then the crystal catsuit for her Met Ball performance by the same designer, Gaga will be going for Mr Armani’s designs once again for American Idol - a silk mesh bodysuit with embroidered Chantilly lace and crystal and jet beading, if you please. Over it, she wears a silk organza cape with an embroidered hood and black patent stiletto boots.

Says Mr Armani on the subject of his latest muse – “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."

We would expect nothing less.
