Lady Gaga in Atelier Versace

Posted on June 20, 2012

We’re feeling a little fashion-cranky today. Not really loving how the stars have been dressing lately. We need a shot of Gaga right now looking like a comic book supervillain.

Lady Gaga at Park Hyatt Hotel in Sydney in an Atelier Versace gown paired with custom-made Brian Atwood shoes.

Atelier Versace Spring 2012 Collection

She is a hilarious Fashion Creature and we love her for it. Say what you will about her; no one else is doing what she’s doing at the moment. Thanks, Steffi. We needed that.

But we needed that more.

Oh, HGH. Boot cut? Disappointing. Thankfully, the killer smile distracts.

    Is it wrong of me to LOVE the color of her hair?  And frankly, the last thing I’m noticing about HGH is his cuffs.

    • AlexisPayne

      I agree, kind of love the color and the way it’s styled.

      Everything in these pictures is working for me, especially HGH’s super adorable smile! 

      •  i KNOW!  We may have to change his acronym to HSAGH.

        • HGH has a cute butt too.. so Steffi is one lucky girl!

      • Cathy S

         I think that’s the first time we’ve seen him smile. It’s adorable!

      • TieDye64

        Now THAT is a helluva smile!

      • Lisa

        Totally! I never noticed how hot he is till he smiled!  YUM!

    • NC_Meg

      This is my favorite hair color of hers. The blond and yellow is a close second.  And yay for a smiling, not haggard looking HGH!

    •  I wonder if HGH knows what a fan base he has here on the TLo discussion boards?

  • cmb92191

    Maybe HGH has boot cut to hide the gun/weapon he has stashed in his pants…  (wait that sounds dirty!)    HGH has a cute butt too.. so Steffi is one lucky girl!

    • BeeBeauNYC

       Agreed – HGH sports nice ass.

  • Violina23

    HGH looks like he’s in a GREAT mood!

    • 3boysful

       Is this the first time we’ve seen him smile?

      • kimmeister

        It is for me.

        • Me, too.

          • Lisa

            Ditto – and it was worth the wait!

          •  Totally worth the wait! I’m now a fan!

      • And what a magnetic smile it is. I’m smitten.

  • Fab dress, but the glasses and hair turn it into a joke.

    • Totally agree. I would love to see her without the glasses, just ONCE! 

      • She got a concussion on stage a week or two ago and ended up with two black eyes; the glasses might be to hide them. 

  • If I were Lady Gaga I would pull a Costner-Houston on HGH… 

    • Pennymac


    • annrr

      Me too. I am swooning over that pic with the smile

    • Oze R.

      Considering their smiles, I think they are ALREADY pulling a Costner-Houston.

  • Pennymac

    Gingy! LURV that smile. Sigh……

    Oh, sorry. Was that a Gaga post?

  • crash1212

    She is an original – and beautiful. Love all of it but really WANT those sunglasses.

  • Clueless_Jock

    What does HGH stand for?

    • Hot Ginger Handler

    • VioletFem

      Hot Ginger Handler (the body guard with the blue jacket).

  • cmb92191

    We need a HGH only post!  Can it be done?

    • Lisa

      It can!  We demand it!

  • gabbilevy

    HGH smiles! Wonderful! Also, I love this Gaga look. My favorite in a while.

  • Probably the only outfit of hers I’d consider trying on.  I really like it for some reason!!  It works!!

  • Hetha Innis

    Holy Shit, HGH has a GORGEOUS smile! Even from the side!

    • It’s a good thing we just got a partial shot of it.  One can only safely look on HGH’s full smile through welding quality glass or a pinprick through a paper plate like an eclipse.  Why do you think Gaga wears those glasses?

      • If you look closely, you can see that a fan looking over Gaga’s shoulder in the fourth picture is holding a photo of HGH and Gaga smiling directly at the camera. It’s like HGH “Where’s Waldo!”

        • NC_Meg

          It looks like Terry Richardson in that picture. HGH doesn’t have a gross mustache.

  • understateddiva

    What is he holding in the smiling pic?  It looks bizarre.

    • momjeans76

      Perhaps an unlit Olympic torch?

    • Its a kangaroo claw – a very tacky souvenir from Australia – a back scratcher (hangs head in shame)

  • VioletFem

    When she first started dying (wearing a wig?) her hair in that minty green color I wasn’t crazy about the shade. But here it looks great. I really like the Blade Runner hairstyle.

    • Jordan Brodley

       It looks like it’s actually dyed, you can see her root in the second to last picture.

      • Laura Valentine

        It doesn’t look so much like roots as like exposed weave tracks, to me

  • fursa_saida

    Oh, she looks fucking fabulous.

    In other news, that color blue is excellent on HGH–though I wish it weren’t shiny.

  • LilyPad

    “No one else is doing what she is doing.” Do I not get it? I feel like those sequined, long-sleeved, sheer gowns are very on trend right now, as is the crayon box hair. She just doesn’t scratch my fashion itch in the slightest

    •  Honestly, and musically, don’t even go there. I like Gaga just fine and I love looking at pictures of her and HGH certainly is very very HOT, but I feel there are more interesting pop stars out there with better songs. 80% of her songs make me go walleyed with boredom, the other 20% are good fun.

  • HGH has a dimple!  Swoon.

  • mshesterp

    I think it says a lot about Steffi (and maybe the feeling of “been there done that”) that most of these comments are about HGH…and I concur.  That smile is adorable.  I want to see a full-on shot!

  • Only you two would have noticed the cut of his trousers.  My eyes didn’t make it quite that far down.  So nice to see HGH smiling! Oh, and Steffi looks nice, too.  I’m waiting for the day we see fans holding HGH signs in the background 🙂

  • MilaXX

    Did no one tell HGH that he may only wear tight, form fitting jeans?
    Oh yeah, Steffi looks cute, love the return of the teal wig.

  • Oh honey, love you but you needed a bigger wig head for an updo like that.

  • Larkin21

    HGH needs to smile more often. Wowza!

  • Lina_bee

    He really does have a killer smile. He’s the best part of these posts.  As for her, she’s striking me as more Jetsonns at a formal gala than Supervillain. Also, the sunglasses and earrings bug me a lot, but it’s nice to see her hands again. Maybe she’s getting somewhere against the germ phobia.

  • Not gonna lie, kinda obsessed with HGH now.

    • cmb92191

       Same!  I know the other bodyguard (bald) naame but not HGH!   There is a Facebook page called something like Lady Gaga’s hot bodyguard–

      • RebeccaKW

         I love the bald handler almost as much as HGH.  What is his name?  On to facebook to search for the page…

  • hot ginger handler is a mere mortal, regardless of his good looks!

    • formerlyAnon

      True. But I feel pretty certain that our intermittent internet-mediated one-sided relationship is remote enough that we may gloss over the many irritating habits and possible major character flaws – including boot cut jeans – that may annoy his nearest and dearest!

      ETA: full disclosure, I have no problem at all with boot cut jeans.

  • Holy Smoke, Batman! Gaga looks fabulous, I love it, and HGH is looking pretty good too. I don’t mind the boot cut.

  • cmb92191

    HGH has big feet! {Insert Smile}.  I’m guessing at least 11 or 12’s …  –

  • Now I finally see what you guys were seeing on HGH… that smile is KILLA’

  • TheOriginalLulu

    When he smiles, he’s got kind of a Jason Statham thing happening. Which is a wonderful, wonderful thing.

    Oh. We were talking about Gaga. It’s awesome and crack-y, just as we have come to expect from her.

  • Great dress. Sorta confused by the whole 1950s gossip columnist thing above the neck, but still like it!

  • totally fabulous. love everything, even the hair. and HGH of course.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Scrolling down waiting for HGH…thanks boys for delivering!

  • mjude

    thanks, i think we all needed that!

  • from the neck up and the ankle down, i’m diggin’ it.
    hate the dress – especially the shoulder pads.  i realize “dallas” has come back but oof.

  • marilyn

    I REALLY hope that is a wig.  So, she is back to wacko-land.  Too bad.  She is talented and does not need to do this to get attention.  What a shame.

    The man is wearing what looks like a pleather jacket, and you notice the cut of his pants??!!??

  • j_anson

    Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like she’s done Glittery Space Matron a few times already. I am ready for a new shtick.

  • I’d like to direct all of your attention here:

  • VicksieDo

    Love it!

  • Judy_J

    She looks more like cartoon Joan Collins than cartoon super villian.

  • Trisha26

    She’s delightful! HGH looks a little like Colin Ferguson in these photos.

  • cleep1000

    He finally took a nap!

  • PeggyOC

    HGH. Come help me walk around on my shoes and smile at me like that.  I promise to treat you better than her.  

  • AnaRoW

    Really? It seems like everyone is doing what she’s doing these days. I could totally see Katy Perry wearing this.

  • NCDFan

    It’s a pretty great look except her boobs look like they are being flattened in the dress.

    • And, maybe it’s just the cut/fit of the dress, but doesn’t she look a bit more boobtastic than usual? 

      • sweetlilvoice

        Breast plate was my first thought…thanks Ru Paul!

        • Pennymac


  • Nice find Rabbit Rabbit, and interesting to see this is one of the few HGH smiles on record!

  • demidaemon

    Glad to see someone who knows how to pick the right dress from an Atelier Versace collection!

  • Sara__B

    I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a shot of HGH smiling before. Thank you, T Lo. I enjoy an attractive guy’s grin MUCH more than I enjoy Gaga’s entertaining ensembles.

  • twocee

    I’m getting this weird Cruella de Ville vibe from this outfit.

  • Gosh – HGH has an adorable smile!

  • aimee_parrott

    Ooh, HGH is SMILING.  And daaaaaaaaaayum.

    oh yeah, she looks good too.  whatever.

  • sockandaphone

    Although her last album just…was…such….crap….TLO’s gaga posts have made me realize she is truly one of a kind fashion-wise. She puts so much effort everytime she steps outs and its always something fun, crazy and innovative. So props for that. Also the hot ginger handler always helps.

  • calimon

    I like the smile where she is licking his face. Not all business there, but sheer fun!..adorable

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    The LadyG can wear whatever the hell she wants, just BECAUSE!! But who else was that dress made for?  Because that is a seriouslly hiddy dress.

  • formerlyAnon

    SHE is whom those transparent skirts are made for. Thank you, ma’am for fulfilling your destiny.

    She makes me smile. And walking in trailing skirts in those shoes without tripping is definitely her super power.

    His smile makes me smile.

    I have nothing against boot cut, at all, but I’m reserving judgement on that intensely sky blue jacket till (if ever) I see it paired with those jeans from the front.

    Thanks, TLo for bringing me this moment of happy!

  • melanie0866

    love the way the back of the dress makes her body look like a cello.

  • formerlyAnon

     Thank-you Rabbit Rabbit!

    (And now I know he’s “Ed” – which I think fits him perfectly.)

  • I love this and I love her for being the outlandish creature she is. I do wish she’d stop with the extreme platforms though. Would it kill her to wear something beautiful on her feet for once? 

  • You know you dont’ care what HGH is wearing. You know you don’t.

    Atelier Versace should thank their lucky stars for the genius that is GaGa because ain’t no one else in the world who would be caught wearing that costume of a dress.

    • Charmella…a DIVA at large!

      Aahhhhhh…I bet Donatella would have worn it if GaGa hadn’t beaten her to it! LOL!

  • HGH is looking rested, tan, and happy!! 

  • cmb92191

    So HGH= Ed.   We can now make up wonderful nicknames like “Good in Bed Ed”

  • Monday1900

    She looks like a cracked out version of Eva Peron!

  • MarissaLG

    Fantastic Gaga look.

  • shopgirl716

    Every time I see Lady Gaga now I have to look for hot ginger handler.  He is way, way hot and it’s nice to see him smiling.

  • I never understood you guys’ fascination with HGH, but now I see it – that SMILE! Megawatt.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    Love that hair, and she is rocking the gown. Aren’t we about due for another album? Hopefully one with fewer shouted references to Nebraska?

  • Lady gaga, can you not? thanks!

  • kikisayshi

    Freakin’ awesome.

  • Mona Pily

    Is she wearing a drag breastplate?  Her breast area don’t look right…

  • I LOVE this entire outfit. No, not everybody could or should wear this lest they look like something straight out of The Hunger Games, but she makes “weird” feel accessible and rather friendly, which is not an easy trick. Plus she’s got a great butt, and you need that in this dress. 

    HGH has a great smile, so he’s cool in my book. 

  • Love it, though I think the dress should’ve been gold. And I reckon Gaga and HGH have been knocking boots. Just a feeling.

  • Call me Bee

    Doesn’t Gaga dress as s comic book super hero every day? And Mr Ginger looks cute in the blue.

  • Pennymac

    Thank you! But I’ll stick with HGH. So much more discriptive than Ed!

  • Pennymac

    Thank you! But I’ll stick with HGH. SDo much more discriptive than Ed!

  • giiiirrrr

    Gaga, oh la la!  Magnifique!

  • Lisa

    I love this.  Who else can rock a green 1940’s lounge-singer hair-do and a super diva glitter gown?  Oh, Katy Perry can *try*, but she wouldn’t quite be this masterful.

    • formerlyAnon

      This will probably come out  wrong, but fans of either, I mean no offense, though I am sure I over-simplify: Perry can’t do the extreme style like Gaga & I firmly believe it’s because Perry can (though so many pretty women don’t) see herself as pretty, but Gaga can’t.

      Gaga can be (and often is) stunning, and she has worked to get and keep a great body, but her features fall short of the American pretty girl ideal. And she went through American high school, I believe, so that mattered. She did what attractive but not pretty girls do if they’re of dramatic bent: developed the ability to be comfortable in a very dramatic, extreme style and to inhabit that style so that she convinces others that it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

      Perry never had to own the dramatic the way Gaga does.

  • Le_Sigh

    Oh yum – HGH is even hotter with that rakish grin!

  • quiltrx

    Killa dress and she’s wearing the shit out of it.

    And HGH should get a pass on the pants because of his super-cute blue jacket!

  • guest2visits

    This is a dazzling mess. You could spend way too much time trying to figure it out.  She looks wonderful.

  • Chaiaiai

    HGH is so hot because…he doesn’t look like a “typical” bodyguard – overly muscled and no neck.  Which makes me think he’s got super secret deadly hand-to-hand skills.  I’ll be retiring to my bunk shortly.

    I agree with whomever said they think they’ve seen this “before” from Steffi.  BUT the world is a scary place, maybe we need the comfort of sameness?  I wish she would take one of Chloe Sevigny’s (umlaut be damned) personalities and run with it, though.

  • Ginger Smiles…aw!

  • Steffi’s looking fabulous, and I like HGH’s smile.

  • You know, I wasn’t really getting the HGH love before, but wow.  Man’s got a *killer* smile!

  • minnye

    Oh honey. Maybe it’s the ‘burns but my first thought was “Steve McQueen.” Yum.

  • formerlyAnon

    Nice photo.

  • mmc

    Oh!  Have we seen HGH smile before!?!?  LIKE!

  • Caaro3

    HGH–1000% more alluring.

  • RzYoung

    Hang on…it looks like HGH changes his jacket between the first shot and the smiling shot – black to blue, reckon he has a stylist too now?

    I love this look on Gaga

  • ccm800

    HGH is looking rested

  • Ann

    Mmmm… love me some HGH!

  • butter nut

    gaga does the best katy perry impression.  totally hilarious! 

  • PeaceBang

    I love it, as always. But she looks messy and off-balance. The sunglasses are askew, the dress is lumpy with a very strange breast situation. I see that it makes the model look hefty, too, so Steffi is not gaining weight. 

  • kathryn_dc

    I wish my hair would do that!

  • MoHub

    It’s like Joan Crawford on acid.

  • GorgeousThings

    Thank God for Gaga! I adore the wig!!!

  • HGH looks fantastic!  I don’t mind the boot cut at all.

  • Annabelle Archer

    I love these types of looks on her so much more than the meat dresses and shock value fashion.  I adore seeing her being unique and absolutely Gaga while being classy and fabulous all at the same time.

  • I had my hair dressed that way for my winter formal senior year. Not in teal, of course, but that same look. I’d gone to my stylist and told him he could do whatever he wanted and that’s what he went with.  It tickles me to see it on Lady Gaga.

  • Truly_Outrageous

    Thats one stylish HGH. From what I can see I think I like his jacket (I just wish I saw it more from the front). Is that wierd that I commented on someone else over the main star of the post?

  • PrunellaV

    This is how I imagine a First Lady looking in about 30 years.


    she looks like Ethel MERMAN  on a very bad day……..hideous
