Remember when Lady Gaga went to her sister’s graduation from High School dressed as a lacy beekeeper? Well, little sister Natali Germanotta isn’t waiting around for success to come and find her. Oh no. Despite still being at college studying fashion, she is already working on her first commission – the costumes for an off Broadway play called ‘Simon Says’.
Wicked! Natali, who sometimes goes by the name of Baby Gaga, has already tasted the world of show bizniss as one of Gaga’s backing dancers in the video for Telephone, with Beyonce and recently accompanying (Big?) Gaga on the red carpet at this year’s CFDA Awards. She looks a lot like her too. . .will she end up as the new Dannii Minogue to Gaga’s Kylie?
Maybe not, because apparently it is just the clothes that Natali is into. The eco-friendly New York designer, Allison Parris knows Natali from when the youngster interned with her. She said ‘Natali has an edgier sense of style like her sister. Initially when she went to the Grammys a few years ago, she wore one of our little lace trapeze dresses, but she styled it up with leather and hardware. She is so nice and so easy to work with. She is such a great girl.’ If the Haus of Gaga is anything to go by, that play is going to be one jazzy visual feast indeed!
