Lady Gaga in David Koma

Posted on June 12, 2012

Steffi, Hot Ginger Handler looks unimpressed with this look and as you know, we follow his lead on all things.


Lady Gaga arriving in Brisbane, Australia in a David Koma dress.

David Koma Fall 2012 Collection

Clearly, like us, HGH thinks this dress suits you perfectly and looks fabulous on you – and probably only you – even if the bodice looks like it was made out of jockstraps and luggage lining. Like us, HGH can forgive the matchy shoes because everything’s a costume with you and besides, dressing like Strawberry Shortcake’s evil stepmother makes some weird sort of sense in your world. No, it’s obviously that horrific peach-colored bob that HGH has a problem with, much like ourselves. We’re pretty sure that , like us, he is currently wondering if that’s a wig and if so, did you keep the receipt?

    He looks about a million times better than she does. Wonder if he sings? I could do with some role reversal there.

    • formerlyAnon

       Well, he looks kinda ragged to me, but I do agree that his raw material beats hers, hands down. But that’s a personal preference.

      • Maryann J. Ward

        I’m sure they would take good care of

  • ChiliP

    HGH can’t even bring himself to look at her in the last picture.

    • He’s looking at the crowd, which is probably his job description – keeping an eye out for creeps trying to hurt her. 

      • ChiliP

        Wow, I was completely joking.  This whole post is based on HGH’s “thoughts” and I (unsuccessfully, apparently) added a joke about how he was so disappointed in Gaga he couldn’t bring himself to look at her. I thought that was obvious, but I guess not.

        • Nelliebelle1197

           I got it, Chili. It WAS obvious….

  • TieDye64

    Um, yeah. Hope she kept the receipt.

  • G

    Hot Ginger sure looks tired.

    • Susan Crawford

      Attending to Lady Gaga must be extremely demanding – poor guy. Perhaps he needs to spend a weekend relaxing at T and Lo’s place? I’m sure they would take good care of him.

  • Guy in the second shot is trying to dress like HGH to get swept up in Steffi’s entourage. Nice try, but no one’s going to mistake you for HGH, honey.

    • NC_Meg

      Hahaha! I had the same thought, though. I did a double take and was all, “hey, you’re not hot ginger handler!”

      • Sweetbetty

         Maybe he’s a HGH in training?  How long can Gaga’s original last?

    • NC_Meg

      Hahaha! I had the same thought, though. I did a double take and was all, “hey, you’re not hot ginger handler!”

  • lucyloo222

    “Luggage lining and jock straps!”  Plus parfait… LOL

  • schadenfreudelicious

    purple strap on peplum and running bib??…i’m exhausted…

    • carolynmo

      Yeah, that dress is really over-designed.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        i get tired just looking at her, apparently so does HGH..

  • kattyatlaw

    Aww, Steffi had to drop out of beauty school.

    • Addicted2Glamour

      I saw Frenchy here also !

  • I think she looks fine; good to see her change it up now and then.  HGH, however, is looking pretty taut here.

  • GorgeousThings

    I read that she got struck on the head in her last concert and got a concussion. This morning she posted on her FB a picture of herself sporting a black eye. So maybe the wig is to cover that up along with the glasses. I don’t hate it all that much, and I love the dress on her. You’re right that it only works for her.

  • call_me_schmeg

    i hope HGH doesn’t forgive those CL Daffodil pumps that she has in EVERY COLOR EVER. “hi, i’m so avant guarde that i’ll pick the ugliest shoe in a luxury shoe brand and buy them in every shade. hell, maybe i’ll even dye them like prom 80s prom shoes. wheeee!”

    • formerlyAnon

       Well, if she likes them, what else is money for?

      • call_me_schmeg

        yah, i guess you’re right. but (BUT!) it still seems a bit incongruous to strive for ‘difference’ and still wear the same shoe all the time.

  • Haters! She looks amazing and that bob is totally cute

    • kingderella

       i think the colour of her wig goes well with the colour of her dress! looks more ginger than peach to me, tho.

    • I think the hair looks great!

  • formerlyAnon

    It’s gotta be a wig and it is definitely not her look.

  • Little_Olive

    HGH looks tired. He can come get *some* rest at my place. 

  • SewingSiren

    I think you ought to start cropping Lady Gaga and do a flat out Hot Gingy  post. That’s all anybody cares about. I’m starting to think about him every single day.

  • I don’t think she’s the only one who could pull off this dress. I think it looks great on her, but it’s still a little too… normal. But the dress is cute and the hair is tragic, even by Gaga’s standards. 

  • I love her shoes.

    Don’t judge. There’s a little Gaga in all of us. Admit it.

    • Terence Ng

      Then I’ll be sure to get a biopsy done immediately, followed by a regimen of antibiotics.

      •  Nothing can kill the Gaga. Get used to it.

        • Terence Ng

          Time kills all things. And it looks like she’s got a head start on me.

          •  Nonsense. If time hasn’t yet killed fur coats and the need for some people to be assholes, she’s not going anywhere.

          • Terence Ng

            You’re right about the fur coats, considering how she used to be vehemently anti-fur in 2010 and the first half of 2011, but now she’s cool with wearing it whenever. It’s just a matter of what ethical positions suit her at the moment. Blame the hypocrisy on the Fame Monster. *shrug*

            So I guess there really IS a little Gaga in everyone.

           If you put on a pair of blue jeans and sneakers, I bet the Gaga will exorcise itself.

          • Terence Ng


  • She looks like the mom from Rugrats from the neck up. I’m also glad that she went without the full neck-cuff that the model is wearing. Fierce as a total package, though. 

  • Laylalola

    I don’t understand what it is about her that manages to cast a homely pall over even the most out-there costume. I’m beginning to think it almost has to be her or some feature — the underbite? — and not the fashion.

  • Strawberry Shortcake’s evil stepmother would be called Blackcurrent Brioche.

    • YOU!  SOREN!

      Stop making me guffaw at work… They already think I am crazy…

    • formerlyAnon

      Soren wins today.

  • VioletFem

    It’s an awfully dated hairstyle and it doesn’t really suit her face.

  • cmb92191

    I;m up for a HGH only post.   We can even vote on a name for him…   LOL to someone saying she looked liket he Rugrats mom, I couldn’t think of it-but that is perfect!

  • Bri H

    She’s giving me a serious “Sally Jesse” vibe from the neck up. 

  • kittenwithaquip

    Dated hairstyle? Awful wig? Because her usual horsetail coif is sooooo becoming.
    <—–woman with auburn bob puts on a hat and backs away slowly.

    • call_me_schmeg

      bobs unite!

      • kittenwithaquip

         Solidarity! I’m 42. I figure as long as I don’t try to revive the bi-level (New Wave mullet) of my youth, I’m good. I’ll leave the avant garde looks to you young whipper-snappers. (:

        • call_me_schmeg

          the other night i got sucked into youtube watching some swedish? dutch? male hairdresser in his 50s give these teenage girls awesomly assymetrical haircuts. it’s what the internet is for.

  • Susan Crawford

    I always look forward to the Gaga posts in order to ogle HGH – thanks, T and Lo! And I think she looks spectacular in this costume – LOVE her red/blonde wig, too.

  • Laylalola

    I like the boots the model is wearing best of anything about this look.

  • EEKstl

    The Louise Brooks ‘do is hard to pull off, I don’t hate it but it isn’t terribly interesting.  The dress works for me, especially without that black neck brace the model’s wearing.  Shoe choice wouldn’t have been mine, but she’s working it.

  • Tigrrl

    It might be my imagination, and I wish there was a better shot of the back of her head, but do I see some wisps of her real hair poking out a touch? 

  • Wendi126

    Anna Wintour on acid

    • j_anson

      Hahahah, YES.

  • Oh HGH, you’re so right. This isn’t her best look.

    I do love her shoes though even if they do match the outfit.

  • BeeBeauNYC

    Is HGH carrying a beer for Lady Steffi in the first photo?

  • FlamingJune1967

    I love reading your HGH ughhhh, I mean Lady Gaga posts and always wonder if HGH has any idea what a mini-star he is on this site?  

  • I saw this look earlier and just loved it.  I like the style of the hair, but not the peachy cheapness of it.  

  • understateddiva

    sitcom mom hair!  you gotta say this about Gaga, her clothes FIT.

  • spooki C

    Diggin the hair and I’d like the dress too if it weren’t for the peplum. 

  • PhillipWilde

    I pretty much always assume she’s wearing a wig.  With as often as she changes styles, using her real hair would be impractical.

  • lordandtaylor

    Yuck. Pics brings to mind a quote: “If you ask me, she would look better in a heavy veil.” (Thorton Wilder, The Matchmaker).

  • MilaXX

    Eh, I don’t mind the wig. After all when one is wearing head to toe plum you need a little contrast.

  • I’m only here for the HGH.  Thanks fellas 😉

  • clairellis

    There is just something about her I do not like…

  • NilBlur

    Girlfriend in a Koma.

  • marilyn

    This is the most toned down I have ever seen her.  Who would have known that an attractive woman lived under those circus costumes.  Good for her.  She is talented and does not need to look like a freak to get attention.  

  • She totally looks like Carol Burnett as Mrs. Wiggins.  Ginger looks good.

  • Was this before or after she got conked on the head?

  • Stubenville

    She looks so normal.  [shudder]

  • Allison Woods

    The bib part of that dress bugs. Needs editing.

    That said, I always look forward to seeing what she will come up with next.

  • cmb92191

    I have picture of my mom (circa 1968) in a very similar wig.

  • luciaphile

    The glasses are screaming Edith Head, but not in a good way.

  • Maybe the ginger wig is a small tribute to HGH?

  • charlotte

    Glad she ditched the choker or whatever that is around the neck of the model. It makes the head look oddly detached.

  • Snarky_Amber

    That hairstyle (not the color) is pure Anna Wintour. Maybe the hair is an homage to her in celebration of landing the cover of the September issue. 

  • *please be a wig*

  • Call me Bee

    Wow–this is positively…conservative for Ms Gaga, considering the get-ups in which she usually shows up at an airport.  However, the whole thing is hiddy, even the shoes. 

  • Aurumgirl

    I know it’s been said a million times but I have to wonder, about Gaga specifically–every single pair of pumps she owns, dyed to match, just like bridesmaidswear!    

  • TomBord

    mother of the bride meets edith head for a strawberry shake. 

  • Is it just me, or does she look like Annie Potts in “Ghostbusters II” here???

  • I was totally convinced this was Anna Wintour, when I saw the thumbnail for this post.

  • In the thumbnail, for a moment, I thought it was a picture of Anna Wintour.  Which isn’t who I expect Gaga to resemble.

    I do covet those shoes.

  • mightbewrong

    After all the Jubilee business, I completely read HGH as ‘his ginger highness.’ I suppose it works both ways.

  • I just CANNOT get over the fact you guys call him Hot Ginger Handler, LMAO Fucking LOVE!

  • guest2visits

    Agree; the angry purple dress looks kind of fabulous on her. Actually,.. I think the wig (?) works with it too.

  • Just say No to that wig.

  • HGH reminds me of daniel craig except a tad younger
