Lady Gaga in NYC

Posted on October 10, 2011

We’ve said this before about Steffi, but it bears repeating:

 

Lady Gaga in NYC
Lady Gaga in NYC
Lady Gaga in NYC
Lady Gaga in NYC
The girl definitely knows how to take a theme and run with it. In fact, we propose that she take it to the next step and start dressing her handlers in clothes that match hers. There’s no sign of Hot Ginger Handler in these pics, but we’re all atwitter at the thought of him wearing a matching fuchsia-colored tight polo shirt with “HOT GINGER HANDLER” written on the back like one of Catwoman’s henchmen in the old Batman TV series.

As for Steffi, clearly she woke up that morning and said “Henchmen, I’m thinking shades of fuchsia and wine, with lots of pattern mixing. Let’s make that happen, shall we?” And then she tossed back her head and laughed lustily as they all scrambled to find pieces that met her requirements. But Gaga, dear, we’re afraid we can’t fully embrace this one because you missed the mark slightly. That blue lipstick just doesn’t quite match the blue in your Little Edie-style hijab and the shoes don’t quite match your skirt. Of course, we’d normally be complaining that you’re so matched up at all, but we understand your need to be theatrical and support it wholeheartedly even though it goes against our own dearly held beliefs. It’s what makes us so charming.

      That lipstick looks like she painted it on with a blue malted milk egg on Easter Sunday.

      I think it’s very clear from these pictures that she’s not in hair & makeup so she had to throw something on in the car so she could walk out in front of the cameras. For her, this does the job.

        I love the idea that Gaga carries around an emergency stash of crazy scarves, hats, and lipstick just in case she’s ever almost caught on camera without a crazy scarf, hat, or lipstick.

      Obviously “Hot Ginger Handler” has been hauled off somewhere to be flogged for not finding exact matches to her color scheme. Quick, to the TLO car to rescue him!

      she is beginning to look like solange knowles, less the innocent charm.
      i have no idea why you like her so much.
      unless it’s cos theres nothing much else to like.
      i can sort of get behind that. but everything she does is so so passé & even more borrowed that i cant do it.

        Right? A friend recently posted this video of Todd Rundgren from the 70s on her facebook status and I said this is is why people our age don’t get the hype about Lady Gaga.

        • http://profiles.google.com/trashilove { edi } ilovetrash

          it’s weird, i think the twenty year olds now are having a wonderful time & it must be at least kind of fun for them– what drives me nuts, just bats, is that their whole culture is taken from the culture thirty & forty years ago as if if were somehow encased in ice to be deposited upon the everlovin youth o’ today.

          having been a rottenly precocious child in the 70s, i sincerely remember what was then called “the nostalgia craze” but people immersed w/in that both easily acknowledged & altered, wildly, the cultures of the 20s 30s 40s 50s. the stuff now is just as if then were frozen in aspic & transported to the present w/ its guts ‘n’ gravitas removed.

            See I’m just glad to have a bit of glitter and glam back, even if it is more cynical than in the past. The 90s and most of the 00’s was dull as ditchwater as far as music meeting fashion. Rock stars and pop stars that looked like they’d just stumbled in from a football match or from doing the shopping. Some showmanship was sorely missed.

          • Anonymous

            Yes, I’m glad there’s crazy out there for the young people, just a little sad that there’s been such a dearth of craziness for so long that an entire generation of crazy seems to have been lost.

        • Anonymous

          Thank you maggiemaggie for posting that fabulous clip. Gaga’s over-produced and over-processed, where Rundgren’s crazy is comfortable and organic. 
          Having just seen the clip, apart from fashion, I think he’s also got her beat as a pianist and singer.

      Its funny how she is so covered up, demure, and ladylike from the waist up (except for the lipstick by Paas) but one good gust of wind and we will all see her gaga!

      I actually really like this, other than the lipstick!  Of course, I love black/white/grey and hot pink together.  I do wish the shoes matched a little more, but I can forgive them even, because purple is my favorite.  I really like the shape of the shoes (and she wears a lot that I don’t care for)…even solid black might have worked here.

      Oh, and if she tires of that scarf, she can feel free to send it to me. :)

      I am dying over thinking about her sitting in bed and yelling “henchmen fetch me things.” Too funny TLo. I am disappointed in Gaga tho, without the hat it might pass for normal. Le sigh.

      I like her outfit a lot. That fabric print is hilarious.  But I wish she had worn black tights. I think the shoes would match better if they weren’t attached to bare pale skin.  I even like the blue lipstick, although it looks like homemade cupcake frosting tinted with food coloring.

      Skillfully applied I don’t mind a blue lippie, but this one doesn’t quite work with the outfit. The outfit itself is a bit too ice skater like and the shoes are simply off. I don’t mind Gaga’s outfits, but this one just doesn’t gel for me,

      No, can’t see that. The most we get to see is a very faint smile. She doesn’t do actual emoting.

    • narita_rayna

      i dont mind all the patterns & shades.  what bothers me is how top-heavy the whole look is.  it makes her look broad-shouldered, like a drag queen.

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      I don’t know you guys, I think the shoes are intentional. I believe that the ‘same color family, different tone’ idea may have some legs. And not just Lady Gaga’s. I am not talking about the lipstick here – that’s too far afield for me to comment on – I’m just talking about the shoes and I really think that this ‘variations on a color’ concept might catch on. We’ve swatted down nude shoes, most plain black pumps and anything matchy-matchy or  dyed-to-match. We need a new idea. Maybe this will be a trend. It is in interior design. Why not fashion?

      I like/love that she didn’t get more matchy-matchy with the lipstick and shoe shades. Particularly the blue, which picks up on the highlights of the light purplish leaf patters. I think it makes it more surreal. 

      Also, I am convinced she might be consulting an interior designer for all her print and color combinations.

      • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

        Right on M M – I’m with ya’ about the interior design color combos and the intentional surrealism. If one can be intentional about being surreal. Which if anyone can, it would be Gaga.

      It sounds as if everyone is kinda bored with what Steffi wears, so I think the focus should just shift to her handlers all together. And although the HOT GINGER HANDLER is not in this photo, the fella opening the door for Gaga is not too shabby!

      I think this might be a thrown together to get from A to B casual little number :)
      I’ve seen her in a couple of interviews lately where it’s pretty clear she doesn’t take herself all that seriously. She was on with Graham Norton a while back and then with Jonathan Ross just last week when she was in London. On both she was quite happy to take the piss out of them and to a degree out of herself. She’s just very dead pan and dry with it though. I’m not keen on her music, too pop for me although the Tony Bennett duet sounds pretty good, but as a performer she’s a relief from bland R&B stars and X-Factor finalists!

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Agreed.  The shoes and the lipstick are what kill this outfit.  Otherwise, I like.

      I want to see it without the triangle hat that looks like it’s made of denim.  Kind of love the print on top with the heads–very funny.  The lipstick reminds me of long, long ago when I was in Jr. High and snuck white lipstick out of the house and put it on at school–as thickly caked on as possible. If she wiped it off the whole look would be better, but I like it otherwise (agree about the bad shoe color).

      The pressure this poor girl must be under to live up to her reputation to shock.  I think Nicki Minaj has the same issue.  I get tired just looking at the two of them struggling to raise the bar of outrageousness.  Small wonder she created an alter ego who dresses like the Fonz.  Even Lady Gaga needs a break from eight inch heels once in a while.
