“…my whole life is art and my whole life is performance…”


Lady Gaga’s unique style has always caught her audience’s attention. “Fashion is everything,” she says, “I want the imagery to be so strong that fans will want to eat and taste and lick every part of us.” The artist has definitely been successful in making an impression with her shocking outfits; she’s performed in a bodysuit with cone-shaped lightning breasts, she’s been photographed wearing nothing but metal orbit-shaped discs around her head, and she became a lampshade for one of her interviews. But, my all-time favorite is the Kermit the Frog coat she wore in a recent interview she had with German television. She even accessorized her outfit with a single Kermit on her head!

“I dress this way all the time because it inspires my life. I dress this way because my whole life is art and my whole life is performance,” explains Lady Gaga. “You don’t need money to live the way that I live. You just need a good idea and creativity.” Lady Gaga definitely has tons of creativity when it comes to the way she dresses, and the best thing about it is that, even when she’s dressed in the most outrageous of outfits, she acts completely natural, as if she is not wearing anything out of the ordinary. Although this interview is in German, one can still see that the singer is trying to take her outfit seriously. She is talking as if she is wearing jeans and the plainest tee, and not a coat made of dozens of drooping toy frogs!

Lady Gaga’s coat was created by French nobleman and clothing designer Jean Charles de Castelbajac (who is also known as JC/DC).  De Castelbajac’s creations have included a coat of teddy bears worn by Madonna and, of course, Lady Gaga’s famous Kermit coat.

What do you think of Lady GaGa’s style?  Is she fashion forward?  Or completely ridiculous?

    i think she has an intresting way of shapping the body. but where is she under all the volume. Shes fun but dosnt have a real character. Shes brave with her risky outfits but is she brave enough to show who she is under all that large skimpy outfits. Shes much to animated

    Love that she’s bringing JC/DC into the mainstream. Love his work with lego. Love her for bringing something fresh and new.

    As much as I adore GaGa for courageous fashion efforts, I don’t think I’ll ever want fireworks THAT close to my breasts. EVER.
