We can’t believe we’re actually going to say this, but has Lady Gaga gone off the boil? Are the wacktacular outfits drying up? Can any one woman really have the style horsepower and limitless creativity (even with the wunderbar Haus of Gaga’s support) to create non-stop clothing shocks for four whole years? Heck! We can barely get through the week without (and we’d like to add this is entirely acceptable) repeating a garment or five…
We’re tentatively putting that controversial question forward because we’ve noticed a decline in the jaw-dropping OMG moments that are usually associated with Gaga’s garb. We miss that debate-raging quality her sartorial swipes normally make. Take today’s Tapei look as a good example: while we appreciate there’s nothing particularly mass-market about The Ladyship’s Kermit-green gown and that her hair, makeup and sunglasses are all as quirky as to be expected, once upon a time Gaga would’ve dressed up as Kermit, not just steal his signature colour. And nothing was ever ‘as to be expected’.
Yesterday Grazia Daily reported on the pop star’s repeat of the infamous meat-dress, only this time it was too perfectly cut – and not out of meat. It was a tame version of a terrifyingly Gaga-ish original. Then there’s the hair-dress obsession. To wear a dress made of human hair once (maybe even twice for those who missed the first time) is spectacularly spooky, but eight times and the hair dress starts to seem like a reasonable investment for all of us!
We all know she favours working in fashion phases. Firstly leotard Lady Gaga was taken to the max. Sci Fi Lady Gaga was a fun one. We’ve also had vintage Versace Gaga, the baroque-shirted look that spawned a thousand followers and rip-offs. And can you remember super-smart going-to-work Gaga? She sharpened up in killer tailoring and surprised us all with… minimalism! But her last efforts may be considered a tad lazy. What would you suggest to the Lady to get back in the groove?
