Mother Monster, is that really you?
Lady Gaga shocked me when I saw photos emerge of her at the IHeartRadio Music Festival last night in Las Vegas. She arrived looking…kind of normal. The eccentric performer donned a Moschino black cocktail dress with a grosgrain bow belt and peplum skirt from the fall 2011 ready-to-wear collection.
I had been waiting for this moment. I knew there would be a day she wouldn’t show up in a thong, shoes taller than my whole body, glittery nipple guards, and other crazy garb…and today was that day. It wasn’t a ‘simple’ look by any means as she swapped out the suede long gloves for a leather pair, and opted for a double strand diamond necklace with matching earrings instead of the gold hoops worn by the model. All in all it was a similar look as to what was presented on the catwalk, but leave it up to Gaga to add her own extravagant high society spin on it.
This was a good look for her, and I’d like to see her take more chances like this. Showing up with most of herself exposed no longer takes me by surprise. Did she actually wear a simple up-‘do as well? Nah, Mama Monster has a mega beehive going on…it just goes out instead of…up. I wonder how much hairspray that took.
Gaga completed her look with velvet mega platform pumps by Christian Louboutin and a pair of dark shades.
