Well Played, Lady Gaga?!?!?!?!!!!!


Okay, so, in the interest of full disclosure, I HAVE had a cold and also hives (SEXY! Also: when I figure out which one of you cursed me, we’re going to need to have a little chat) so I’ve been on a very intriguing cocktail of Benadryl and…other stuff I can’t remember because of the Benadryl. So it is ENTIRELY possible that I am hallucinating, the way I did the other night when I rolled over to look at my bedside clock and was pretty sure that the floor between my bed and the wall was actually made of black ice. “How am I going to clean that?” I thought, “on the other hand, the black ice is where the laundry used to be, so….I can live with this.”

Here’s why I think I might be hallucinating:

Uh, I don’t know what character Lady Gaga is playing right now — rich society matron? — but I do know that whoever that character is. she looks…kinda great. Sure, she’s probably mean to the help and she may have forced her eldest child to go to fat camp and she’s not actually kidding when she says she’s waiting for her husband to die so she can get the money, but, you know…she’s rocking the LBD while she does it.

All I know is, if she performed in this thing, I’m hanging up the fugging hat and getting a job selling mangoes on the side of the road.

Phew. The produce is safe from my hallucinations. For now.

    I never thought I’d say this “Lady Gaga looks amazing”. Phew. I said it. Usually I fwd pics to people b/c she looks like an insane alient hat mated with one of the Adam’s Family.

    Breakfast at Tiffanys babe

    Lovers, I have a feeling it was J.Lo who cursed you, not one of your readers. She has that kind of power.

  4. AK

    I’ve been saying for at least the past year that the most shocking fashion choice she could make now would be to dress in extremely prim outfits

  5. SJC

    There’s no back shot here. How can we be sure there’s no tail, cut-out butt panel or muppet on the back of this outfit?

  6. Annie E

    Lose the gloves and we have a winner… as long as those shoes have heels. Do they?

    Also, feel better, Jessica.

  7. Meg

    She does look pretty great!

    Sidebar: there is a popup when I come here that says something like “Your feedback matters!” There is no X to get it to go away, it just goes away when it wants. It’s really annoying. :\

    Lady Gaga i am sure has her tongue firmly planted in her cheek here, but who cares? She looks great. It is always a costume with Lady Gaga, but her effort here to “dress up” as Holly Golightly ( I am guessing) makes her look like chic and well-dressed. The dress is actually very pretty, fits her well and is flattering. I would totally wear that dress. And though i hate hoof shoes, can i really knock her for wearing footwear that Sweet Sandra Bullock would wear? I mean this woman actually wore McQueen’s armadillo shoes, so hoof heels are going to get a pass in this case from me. And is that her actual hair??? The queen of wigdom has ROOTs. Though i hate dark roots normally, gaga gets major points for actually sporting her own hair! Though the whole look might look a bit over the top for, say, me… for Gaga it is tame and, well, kinda normal. I am curious as to the reason for such normalcy.

    I so love the homage to Audrey – and like a lot of you – words I never thought I’d say – “Lady Gaga looks amazing!”

  10. Andrea

    Does anyone else think she sometimes looks like Sarah Michelle Gellar?

  11. Kit

    @SJC – true!!!

  12. Kristen from MA

    Feel better, Jessica!

  13. Deli

    OBVS Audrey from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Sure she looks good, but she is once again copying someone else. Can’t she come up with a classy look on her own?!?!

  14. Ms Wheezer

    @SJC – I now have a mental picture of Fozzie Bear coming out her rump shouting out ,’Waka, waka, waka.’

  15. Chasmosaur

    Okay, so I decided to hit various editorial image sites to make sure we didn’t have rear muppetage going on.

    Can I tell you how amusing it was to search for Lady Gaga and get some Alice Cooper pics? (He was talking about modern pop stars…)

    Sadly no photos of the back of this dress. But I’m going with others – she’s now channeling Breakfast at Tiffany’s, so the dress is probably a plain LBD. I am happy to report, though, that the shoes have heels. Appear to be Louboutins, based on the red sole – http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/126319613/Getty-Images-Entertainment

  16. Jessica

    I never think Breakfast at Tiffany’s unless the tiara is involved!

  17. tania

    if you didn’t know right away she was trying to do the Audrey Hepburn look… well i’m embarassed for you. And please Gaga, leave the Audrey style for people with class and get your own style!

  18. Lina

    Okay, so this time she’s doing Breakfast at Tiffany’s, followed by Sex-era Madonna. Being this derivative is so boring! (She was almost interesting as a drag-king, except for how it was just another stunt.) I’m so tired of how she’s just shiny wrapping paper surrounding a box of air.

  19. Jo

    @tania I think the last thing you can accuse Gaga of is not having her own style! Now, whether that’s a good thing is up for debate!

  20. Mary

    I dunno….I think she looks like she’s trying to play dress up. Which is odd, since I’m typically a fan of her actual crazy outfits which I think she always looks very comfortable in.

    @meg, run firefox with scriptblock.. It does the very most perfectest job ever of getting rid of popups. Nothing is allowed to auto play. Basically, instead of your link clicking determining permission of a script to run, scriptblock tells you, “hey, this person wants to run a script, if you want to see it click on this tiny gray icon at the bottom of your screen, or just ignore it, whatever…” Lots of webpages which are otherwise unviewable (this one!) are really nice and clean with scriptblock.

    I really hate lady gaga, but the dress is cute.

    I disagree that her style is anything special. I think its very easy to act random and unpredictable, and attempting to constantly shock is actually kind of boring and copyable. Her music isn’t anything special either, so color me unimpressed.

  22. Kris

    Feel better, Jessica!

  23. Breda

    JANET SNAKEHOLE. Clearly. Pre-widowing (hence the lack of hat).

    …I’m sorry. I’m obsessed.

  24. Anne B

    She did promise the Monsters that she was “meeting with the President” last week (though I hear such a meeting wasn’t on his schedule).

    Wonder if this awesome getup is what she wore. For that imaginary meeting.

    Feel better! xoxoxo

  25. TonyG

    Well done, except I’d wish she would show her eyes sans heavy shades or sans heavy make-up.

  26. Jaime

    It’s the 50th anniversary of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and she looks brilliant.

  27. Cecily

    @SJC, LOL!

  28. nikole

    It’s a Moschino…trust me the back is normal…in fact I actually don’t like the back of it too much

  29. Squirrel!

    Wow, it IS the 50th anniversary of the release of Breakfast at Tiffany’s! October 5th. And Mickey Rooney just turned 91. Let’s hope he doesn’t reprise the character he played in the film.

    Gaga looks grand.

  30. ceecee

    I wish I could see what she really looks like, minus the costumes and the play-acting. On the other hand, she can go to the hardware store in jeans and a tee shirt and no one would know who she was. I would wear this dress if I had a really chic party/funeral to wear it to, without the gloves and the giant sunglasses.

  31. Susan

    OMG!!!! I would never have believed she could even look decent, much less look GOOD. Now if she could look more like this, (except maybe when she is performing.) Maybe then she wouldn’t look so desperate to be noticed and look like such a FOOL instead. Way to go gaga. You look good for a change………

  32. Sajorina

    Nope, she still looks RIDICULOUS to me! Somehow when she dresses normally, she looks like she’s wearing a costume! FUG!!!

    Get well soon, Jessica!

  33. Jenny Mason

    Yeah, she looks pretty good, apart from her legs. WTF is going on with those? They look like toothpicks with knobbly bits in the middle, and that’s being generous! Maybe it’s just the angle, but still …

  34. vandalfan

    ALWAYS with the poses.

  35. phoebe

    It’s Holly Golightly but with bling instead of pearls. I’m not sure how I feel about it sans pearls. What is she trying to say??? WHAT, GAGA?? WE MUST KNOW!

  36. jean

    I never realized what big feet she had until know. Hee. I also think she missed on wearing a really BIG hat. But whatever. It’s a costume I like. I bet her sister wished she wore this to her graduation instead of that horrible get-up. That’s the moment I realized Lady Gaga was a bit …self-centered. Attending her sister’s graduation in a total “look at me” get-up is rude. Unless of course her sister was a total bitch to her their entire lives and then I guess I would have to say “good one”.

  37. esther

    um. it’s just a black dress with gloves, heels and a big shiny necklace.

    that’s really not a difficult combination to pull off.

    i think it’s too early to be planning floats for the “Gaga-goes-classy” parade.

    and if it IS a holly golightly tribute, i don’t think it’s a particularly outstanding one.

  38. Sajorina

    @Anne B: I read that she was meeting with the President to discuss the topic of bullying!

  39. Mire

    Get better, Jessica!

  40. Christopher D

    OK she looks like some generic rich bitch hollywood lady, NOT Audrey Hepburn as
    Holly Golightly.
    HG wears PEARLS not bling, and satin gloves not leather, and her sunglases fit (she doesn’t need to look up all the time to keep them on.)
    If this is an attempt at Holly G it’s a bad one.
    It’s too bad that Gaga is as boring as she is – she can in fact sing, she mostly doesn’t, she just is Gaga, who is, as I’ve said, boring… Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…

  41. Caroleena Stantonova

    GaGa: please go away. enough is enough.

  42. Linda

    Poor Jessica! I feel your pain. I’ve ended up in the emergency room twice with hives. They are the WORST! Hope you are back to normal very soon.
    I just don’t know what to think about Gaga but I’m surprised she hasn’t shown up looking like an attack of hives. I have a bad feeling she is not through trying to SHOCK us. bleh.
