How do you feel about Lady Gaga? How do you feel about Lady Gaga wearing Alexander McQueen? I’m struggling hard not to see a bad side to this fame story!
So we had the MTV 2010 VMAs this very Sunday. You can just as well name it the Gaga edition since she swept this edition with 13 nominations from which she actually received 8 trophies (notably video of the year for Bad Romance, best collaboration for Telephone). That’s just a brief introduction to her stage outfits, actually. Because Lady Gaga chose to wear Alexander McQueen to start the night with. It’s a dress she had already worn before in her Vanity Fair pictorial. The Mohawk head piece was signed by Philip Treacy. (the story continues right after the jump with more images, click here for the gallery!)
That wasn’t the most outrageous thing she had worn for the night. The Alexander McQueen dress (paired with the impossible Armadillo shoes) was the most decent and the most fashionable by far. Remember that Vogue Hommes cover she did? The one not-so-easy to digest? Yep, the meat dress thing? She had a very similar piece tonight, on the MTV VMAs stage with a matching head meat piece and a meat clutch. For some reason, though, even if I highly appreciate any public highlight of anything McQueen, Gaga’s attempts at being different smell like fame desperation, thus not honoring McQueen’s memory in my opinion. Where others see art in Gaga, I see nothing genuine / original. Posing as a “special” someone doesn’t necessarily make her one too. It’s all a stage game. The Fame game. Please, Gaga, enough McQueen already! (photos via 1, 2, 3)
