Lady Gaga in Antonio Berardi

Posted on June 05, 2012

Hi Steffi.

Lady Gaga arrives at the Stamford Plaza in Auckland, New Zealand in an Antonio Berardi dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps.

Antonio Berardi Fall 2012 Collection

You are so totally working a “Lana Turner at her daughter’s murder trial” look and we totally adore you for it, even if it was unintentional. Either way, you’re serving up gangster moll realness here and we think –

Oh.

 

 

 

Sorry. What were we saying?

      • Josephine E. Segura

        it’s probably the first thing she’s ever worn that I might actually be able to pull off!....FreeLancerJob.notlong.com

      Helloooo hot ginger handler!

      • NinaBoo

        Is it wrong I scanned the pix for him and then went back and looked at Gaga?  I don’t think so.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_N75LLUHGJEGCGJ3HZAXEB3MBJI Deen

          Isn’t scanning for HGH what we are to do with a post that reads “Gaga”??? I thought it was…. :D

         Indeed.  Who’s that woman with Hot Ginger Handler?

    • suzq

      Bwaahahahaha!  You’re on the edge of glory with this post, aren’t you?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/PKI5RTEEJ5TZIZII6VEN2G3D7A Caitlin

      This, I love. She is a star.

    • http://twitter.com/holocausticity E. Sevilla

      the fact that this is normal AND on gaga makes it abnormal in it itself.
      she is the one and only—-

    • Asmith610

      Hot ginger handler finally looks well-rested! and tan! Maybe he had a nice, relaxing vacation… Gaga seems like the type of employer who would give plenty of vacation days. :)  Love that orange dress… it’s probably the first thing she’s ever worn that I might actually be able to pull off!

      • formerlyAnon

        I dunno, I thought those eyes could use some sleep. He’s not old enough to have permanent bags like that, I would have thought.

        • j_anson

          Us gingers are never too young to have permanent bags, sadly.

          • http://twitter.com/TheRedZavodnik Ginger

            Thankfully, as a 36 year-old ginger myself (also named Ginger), I can say that I don’t have bags!  Yippee!!!!  Now an entire bagful of other issues, yes. HA!

    • ChiliP

      Love, love, love. It’s both appropriately”Gaga” and understated- quite a feat.

    • SpcilK

      Dig it. She looks like a character out of La Dolce Vita.

    • marilyn

      The shoes are too heavy for the dress.  It weighs everything down.  This is a remarkably normal outfit for her.  Wow.

    • SewingSiren

      I wonder if Hot Ginger knows what a big star he is on this blog?

      Agreed that Gaga is total LanaTurner at the murder trial. And it works.

      • Derek_anny

         Clearly a paparazzo knows.  Why else would there be a picture so obviously of HGH.
        Whoever you are, paparazzo, we applaud you.

    • newleaf1

      She dressed to match HGH’s hair.  That was so nice of her.  And it looks great on her, too.  Can’t wait for platforms to go away.

    • In_Stitches

      Not loving the fact that the peplum starts under the bodice, giving her the illusion of a pooch, but the color and the idea of the look are great.

    • http://viridianpostcard.blogspot.com/ viridian61

      Sigh.  We all need a hot ginger handler of our own.

      • formerlyAnon

        Where do I sign up?

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      Does anyone know HGH’s name? I feel odd objectifying the lovely boy like this.

      • formerlyAnon

        I agree, and yet I’d feel odder calling him out for completely impersonal admiration by name. Go figure.

      • https://twitter.com/#!/marla_melendez eme and azul

        a while back, there was a post (here or elsewhere on the internets) in which there were pictures of Gaga and others with a birthday cake for him and it was something really “normal” like David (not sure..). Still, Hot Ginger Handler rang truer, maybe that is why I forgot all the other details – like his actual name…

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      It’s weird that she looks… NORMAL. No crazy hair, no crazy hats or shades or veils or frankenshoes… Is Steffi alright??

    • RebeccaKW

      This is so beyond fabulous.  I love it.  I’m not a fan of those shoes, but they beat those armadillo shoes she wore for so long. 

      And it’s so nice to see Hot Ginger Handler again, especially looking so rested.  And buff.  And delicious.  I do wonder-where’s Tall Bald Handler?

    • kimmeister

      Eek, I do not like the placement of the tattoo on her left arm.  Looks like underarm hair gone wild!

    • nannypoo

      This is my favorite look ever for her, except maybe the time she strolled out of her hotel with tea. She is fabulous. And so is he.

    • JMansm

      YES HGH. In other news, I love her outfit but I wish her hair was just slightly more complicated but in the same general style. 

    • BeeBeauNYC

      Hot Ginger Handler looks good! Do we think he’s a bodyguard, a stylist or a personal assistant, or is he all three?

      • formerlyAnon

        I’ve always assumed a bodyguard of the way-smoother & general buffer sort – he’s usually looking out for her in most of the shots rather than hanging back & scanning the crowd for suspicious loonies.  (Definitely not an assistant – his hands are always free.)

        • Snailstsichr

          HGH needs an assistant to carry the stuff in his pockets!

      • Emily Giovanni

        I think he’s there to jump to the rescue in case she twists her ankle. And he looks ready!

        • formerlyAnon

          Yes, I’ve always wondered if maybe job #1 is keeping her upright if her ridiculous shoes catch on something.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      Sorry Steffi, Hot Gonger Handler Sighting!!!!

    • MilaXX

      Hot Ginger FTW! He’s looking mighty fine today!

    • alyce1213

      Older Tintin and Gaga. Still don’t get why “hot,” never will. My son was obsessed with Tintin growing up; every book, toy, backpack, etc. Maybe I just can’t get past the uncanny resemblance.
      I just love how she looks. I’d love to see her not wear platforms, though. Just for a change.

    • MK03

      Hair + glasses + expression = Church Lady.

    • claudemtl777

      Im not sure the Lana Turner thing is unintentional…I thought Lana Turner2.0 as soon as I saw it. Love the gloves

      But what is she doing in New Zealand with Hugh Hefner?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

        He looks like a bureaucrat – maybe the mayor? Any kiwis out there who can ID this gentleman?

    • sk8tfan

      Attagirl. This is what I want from my stars. She has fulfilled her quota of fabulousness for the day and is now free to go soak in a milk bath.

    • ChaCha_70

      Want. those. shades. “Hi there” HGH…looking fine today.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/toodleskitty79?feature=guide AWS

      Eva Peron LIVES!

    • formerlyAnon

      I concur, gentlemen, with your every word as well as the lost train of thought.  Though the hem looks like it could use pressing when it’s not stretched out by her leg action & Hot Ginger Handler needs a nap.

      (gosh, I hope she stays in this persona for a while. I will enjoy it. The clothes, that is, whether or not HGH is present.)

    • schadenfreudelicious

      i cant with the shoes, i could with hot ginger handler though….:)

    • http://twitter.com/lenabena_ Elena

      Hahaha

    • Pennymac

      Has anybody learned anything about that HGH? He certainly is stalker-worthy.

      Oh, yeah, Stef looks FAB. Now back to looking at what I really search her posts for….

    • Le_Sigh

      Damn TLo – you’ve got me playing “find Hot Ginger Handler” every time I see a Steffi post. 

      Not complaining. Nope :-)

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

      Oh you boys, so easily distracted.
      And it distracted me when I yelled, ‘YES!’ in regards to the Lana Turner reference. So spot on. 

    • MzzPants

      HaHaHahahahah!  And there it is.

    • Lina_bee

      I could have sworn I saw a picture of someone else wearing this just yesterday. Maybe Kidman or Diaz? I can’t remember. Or maybe it’s just that EVERYONE is cranking out orange versions of any random dress this summer as orange is the new black this month. But, Hot Ginger Handler is looking *lovely*. Better than Steffi, in fact.

      Who’s the dude in the bow tie?

    • ClevelandburbsBeth

      In every Gaga post, I bypass her look and start looking for HGH. This one came through like no other, and it made my day. Steffi looks nice.

    • patticake1601

      I just hate these shoes and I can’t figure out why women love them. They make you look like Herman Munster with heels. 

    • SapphoPoet

      LOL. You always make me laugh. 

      This is the most normal outfit I’ve ever seen on her. Looks good; love the color.

    • annrr

      Hot Ginger handler! Love the shades and the Lana Turner reference. 

    • Caroline Harper

      i only read the lady gaga posts anymore in hopes of getting a glimpse of ginger handler.

    • charlotte

      The heyday of young Mrs. Blankenship!

    • http://victoriapavlova.com Victoria Pavlova

      Love this look on her. Gloves and all.

    • Call me Bee

      Ginger’s looking well and fit, j’ai raison?

    • judybrowni

      Before I read the TLo comments, I thought, “Vintage Martha Mitchell.”

      • ChaquitaPhilly

        WOW! That’s right on!

    • Judy_J

      I like everything from the hem of the dress up.  Hate the shoes.  The bruises on her legs are so obvious.  Hosiery or leg makeup would help immensley.

    • mjude

      i think the ginger has been reading TLO cause he is looking extra hot, maybe just for them?

    • leftcoastpickle

      She and the ginger handler both look fantastic!

    • greyhoundgirl

      Love, love–gloves, pearls and all.  Just don’t like the horse hooves but that’s okay.

    • NCDFan

      I hate seeing the wrong side of the peplum. They should have lined it to be the same color. Love that hot ginger handler!

      • DaringMiss

        I had the same thought.  It seems so careless!  And given that the underside is such a different and lighter color, it really is noticeable.

    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Love the dress!  Love the hair, the makeup, jewelry and sunglasses, and even the gloves.  Fabulous.  Those shoes are awful, however.

    • NurseEllen

      Seeing photos of Hot Ginger Handler and experiencing the TLo reaction: priceless!

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WKSM57KFWUGRMKPDUW4SPL3GDM Kathryn

        So true!  Makes me laugh out loud.  And these are some of the best photos yet of HGH.

    • turtleemily

      They showed video footage of this on the news during lunch break at work; it was nice to see HGH in motion.

      am I allowed to appropriate the term “hot ginger handler” for Jorah Mormont on GoT?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1474713106 Katy Morris McDermott

        Yes. And I wish I’d thought of it!

    • 3boysful

      Maybe she’s auditioning for Mad Men.

      Why would anyone want shoes that make their feet look bigger?  As in ginormous?

    • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com/ Rebecca

      She looks *so* cute in tangerine!

    • KittenKisses

      Gaga, you look like the perfect shade of crazy, keep up the good work.

      And if the handler’s available in brunette, I’ll take one, please.

    • guest2visits

      I think she looks fantastic. Charisma. And unlike so many young ‘stars’ she’s got a great way of carrying herself; maybe it’s posture.
      It’s got to be nice to take a break from the monster show to just enjoy being a girl.

      Fabulous.  And the one look for which I completely approve white pointy-toed platform pumps.  (There’s a sentence I did not imagine writing when I woke up this morning.)

    • Linderella

      Oh, I’ve so missed Ginger!  Thanks for the bright spot in a dismal day, fellas.

    • quiltrx

      LOVE the outfit, and her hair and makeup look great.  The shoes are a bit cartoonish for my taste, but they work for her.

      And mmmm…nothing like the taste of Hot Ginger in something casual!
