NORMCORE LADY GAGA
Lady Gaga fit right in at Alexander Wang’s show at New York Fashion week. Lady Gaga is like a bellwether for what’s happening in the fashion world, and lately she’s been taking a decidedly understated approach to dressing. And, acting, too. There was a time when the star went through forty billion costume changes in a day and never left the house without looking like an over-the-top sculpture, but lately she’s looking more like a small-time piano bar singer named Stefania Germanotti. We don’t mean that as a bad thing. After all, once you make a name for yourself being weird, the weirdest thing you can do is act normal.
So it was no huge surprise that she showed up to pal Alexander Wang’s fashion show at New York’s Fashion week wearing norm-core denim jeans and sparkly platform shoes that look they belong on a hooker named Crystal. The only thing super fashion-y about the outfit is the white eyebrows, copper eyeshadow and the hair: she’s got a blonde version of the same haircut one of Wang’s models wore in his super creepy fall campaign — all Girl With the Dragon Tattoo bangs and all. Personally, we love it.
And of course, Gaga fit right in at the Wang show, which place a premium on minimal makeup and casual cool outfits that would look as appropriate on a Venice Beach meth addict as they would on one of the richest pop stars in the world.
