Hooray for Ga Ga!
I had quite a heated debate with a friend of mine at the weekend over the legendary Lady Ga Ga.
“She’s awful, “my friend said.
“What are you serious?” I replied, “Have you seen her videos? Her Bad Romance video? She wears a pair of those mental Apocalyptical McQueen shoes! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?”
“I just don’t like her!” she said. “I think she’s crap!”
I could see my plight for Ga Ga was bordering on useless, I had more chance of fighting Osama bin Laden’s corner. Maybe the reason I feel so strongly about this subject is that Lady G is quite clearly a pop sensation and a fashion guru of the highest calibre. She brought pop music to the world in a slick package of high fashion, creative eccentricity and some pretty catchy songs to boot. Yes she’s utterly bonkers with a capital B, and no I wouldn’t want to be left in a room with her for too long but Ga Ga embraces fashion with such vigour I challenge you to find a fashionista that doesn’t like her on some level.
On Sunday, Lady Ga Ga stepped out in a truly show-stopping creation at the 2010 Grammie awards. Accented with her newly-dyed yellow hair and always sky-high heels (that should probably come with a health warning), Ga Ga stole the show in her fabulous sculptural Armani dress and showed the world what it is to be a true style icon! Now that’s what I call a party dress!
