Lady Gaga in Comme des Garçons

Posted on September 25, 2012

Nicki opened the floodgates and now we just want crazy shit on our plates today. We’re just putting off the inevitable post-Emmys post or movie premiere post, so enjoy the crazy shit while you can.

Hey. Maybe that’ll be the title of our second book; Enjoy The Crazy Shit While You Can.

Anyway, Steffi has something she wants to say (as per usual), and she’s saying it with clothes (as per usual):

Lady Gaga leaves the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome Hotel in Comme des Garçons.

Comme des Garçons Fall 2012 Collection

And what she’s saying here is, “You c*nts in the press need to shut the fuck up about my weight.”

  • Is that her real hair?

    • Scott Hester-Johnson

       Yeah, THAT’S what we’re all wondering.

      • Allison Shannon

        I laughed out loud.

    • spooki C

       Doubt it, her real hair is supposedly very damaged and suffering from traction alopecia.

    • NC_Meg

      I was also wondering if that’s her real [email protected]:disqus it doesn’t surprise me that her real hair would be super damaged. I don’t think anyone dyes their hair or wears more extensions than her.

    • No. If you can’t see skin at the part, it’s usually a wig.

    • lilazander

       Nope, she shaved the shit out of her head (atta girl) now she resorts to wigs only.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    This outfit is hilarious. I love her hair here. I know that it was probably in keeping with her 1960s paper-doll theme, but the color looks very pretty and soft on her (no doubt the entertainment industry would find it dull, as it is a color found in nature). 

    • luciaphile

      You made me smile 🙂
      Her: kind of over her…

  • neofashionista

    Seriously miss the Hot Ginger handler I wonder if he got sick of all the crazy shit

    • ThatPeterG

      Yeah, but this new one is pretty fine, too!

    • mmc2315

      I know!  I’m all yeah-yeah Gaga yeah yeah clothes, now WHERE is Mr. Hottie?  🙂

    • D

       Although the hot bald handler makes for a lovely sight in his absence.

      • Little_Olive

        Amen. A-men. 

      • RandiLu

        I have dubbed him “Blue Steel”. Seriously, look at that last pic!

      • Daniel Bayer

        SERIOUSLY. Just as I was involuntarily laughing my ass off at Steffi and her RIDICULOUS outfit, out came Steroid Picard’s baby blues in that last shot, and… well… suddenly I couldn’t see anything else!

      • JosephLamour

        I like bald handler better, to be honest. PS: does she make all her handlers dress like he’s a mid level government employee going to a happy hour to hang out with his old fraternity brothers?

    • SignLadyB

      Isn’t that funny–I couldn’t care less about Lady Gaga but always look at the posts to see HGH and that was the first thing I said to myself this morning–where is he? I miss him.

    • VRuss

      Bald guy in the first pic is SMOKING HOT!

      I’ll have one of that, please.

  • It kind of looks like a giant piece of pink and blue toast.

    • neofashionista

      So true!

  • RzYoung


  • My arms would get tired having to hold them out like that. But also, yeah, lay off about the weight y’all. Pasta is delicious. You cannot blame a girl for liking pasta too much, ok?

    • patticake1601

      The Gaga that appeared a little chunkier was not Gaga.

      • formerlyAnon


  • Have I ever mentioned that I hate Lady Gaga? Because I do. And this just solidifies it.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Me too- She’s on my irrational hate list along with Gywneth and Angelina.  Kinda loving the face on the handler to her right (left from our view). 

      • Spreecord

         I don’t think there’s anything irrational about any of those hates. I share them, and I relish them.

    • JaneDC

      Thank you. She annoys the he’ll out of me.

    • Lily-Rygh

       Amen.  I think she’s such a joke.  She’s not even on my irrational hate list, because I think my hatred is entirely rational! 

    • patticake1601

       I was so afraid to say it out loud. I can’t stand her either. I like her songs, but I think she is a major twat.

    •  You hate an artist who is talented, writes their own music, sings live, dresses fun and fashionable, promotes self esteem, and has a fun positive attitude? I know people say they don’t get her and think she is a bitch, but in actuality shes a very sweet girl who is dedicated to her fans and promoting a healthy image and self love. If you cannot accept that, then I think you need to evaluate yourself and the world today (especially for youth who are suffering from bullying and humiliation).

  • S_Swift

     Some toddlers’ eyes just lit up as they realize they have felt pieces in their busy books they can use to decorate Lady Gaga.

  • Clueless_Jock

    I saw this collection at Comme des Garçons and thought “No celebrity would ever wear this.” I guess I was wrong!

  • dress_up_doll

    I’ve always loved Comme des Garcon.Crazy genius. However, I find the platforms a bit tiresome now. I do like her hair though.

  • Sobaika


    I refuse.

    • mshesterp

       God, yes.  Shut up, Steffi. 

      • Amen to the bazillionth power.

        • Sobaika

          So glad I’m not the only who has no interest in this… thing. Whatever it is.

          • Spicytomato1

            I have gotten to the point where I hardly think of her as human. She seems more like a cartoon character to me, so to talk about her alleged weight gain doesn’t quite compute for me. Her 15 minutes can’t be over soon enough for me!

          • birdhead

            “I don’t think of her as human so you know, who cares how the press treats her.” Charming. 

          • Spicytomato1

            Please. This less-than-human creation is all her doing. If she doesn’t want attention from the press and the world then maybe she should consider dialing down the meat dresses and other ridiculous getups. But if she does want the focus on her, which it seems she clearly does, she shouldn’t be naive enough to think the press will always be kind.

          • Calling her “less than human” is pretty nasty.

          • Spicytomato1

            Poor choice of words, my apologies to those whom I’ve offended. When I typed “less than human” I was thinking “cartoon-esqe.” I have no major feelings towards her other than her public persona strikes me as a caricature…and therefore she should be capable of handling the negative attention along with the positive. That’s all I really meant. She might irritate the crap out of me but I don’t wish her — or anyone, really — any ill will or any sort of subhuman treatment. 

          •  Definitely not the only one. Looking at this picture I think even she is weary of herself.

  • And she’s holding her arms out like she’s being crucified.

    But more important than that – what happened to the Ginger Handler?


    • mshesterp

       He was one of the only reasons I stayed interested in Gaga! (ha, just typed in Gag and forgot the A…that’s about right…)

    • I see it more as a “come at me bro” stance re: her weight.

  • I never thought I would be typing this about Steffi, but, meh.

    • See, I think it is the only funny thing she has ever done. 

  • Did Elena help design this?

  • janetjb

    My teen took one look at her and walked away muttering that Lady Gaga is crazy.

    • Introspective

      Totally agree with your kid- This bitch is cray.

  • quiltrx

    That looks like it could be her actual hair…looks good.

    And just looking at that thing (is it felt???) is making me sweat in unpleasant places.

  • Guy on the left in the bottom picture. That’s exactly what I was thinking. 

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      so right! lol!

    • Lindsay McCarthy

      He is not impressed.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    is it wrong that i would enjoy seeing her fall off her “shoes”?….

    • Little_Olive

      Y’know I thought of that too, but then she’d make it so much a Gaga “we are all flawed” moment, the flash of excitement died in the pan. 

      • schadenfreudelicious

        yes, you’re likely right, she would take all the damn fun right out of it!..

    • formerlyAnon

       I feel pretty certain that if she actually hit the ground somebody would get fired. Or at least put on warning. I imagine keeping her upright is a bigger part of the job than for most celebrity handlers/bodyguards.

  • mhleta

    Holy shit, it’s a human whoopee cushion! If you sit in her lap does the dress fart??

    • JaneDC

      You nailed it!

    • AnnPopovic

       I feel bad, but I read that three minutes ago and I’m STILL laughing…

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    This is just kinda hilarious.  That the piece was ever made and shown.  That money exchanged hands related to it. 
    But if wearing it is a protest to the sh*t about her weight, then yay, Stephi!!  You go girl!!  I feel the same way when I see that commercial where the girl in jeans has cinnamon buns on both butt cheeks…. I could rock those. 

  • jw_ny

    It’s the perfect F-you dress…hysterical that it’s actually designer and walked a runway.

  • I only see the Randy from A Christmas Story in his snow suit. I guess she can’t put her arms down either. 

  • How can she see to walk in those glasses?

    The dress reminds me of those neat flat vases that pop open when you need them.

  • Little_Olive

    Love that on her the “dress” part is fully displayed, as opposed to the model. 
    Those f*ers at Comme des Garçons sure got lucky with all the Fat-Gaga press, because I don’t see any other use for the piece.  

  • PeggyOC

    Atta girl. Now bring back HGH.

  • Anathema_Device

    She was not going to let Minaj get away with that candy-boobed B.S. “Nicki, I see your Wonka porn and raise you doll clothes on steroids!”

  • miagain

    Can she even put her arms down?

  • It looks like a snuggie. Any pics of the back? 

  • nannypoo

    I think what she’s saying here is “I have finally gone completely off the rails. Bring back HGH and we’ll all be fine”.

  • rkdgal

    It completely reminds me of Patrick from Spongebob.  That’s all I can see now.

  • JMansm

    She’s also talking about the fact that in addition to media scrutiny her management would prefer that she immediately loses weight as opposed to ordering her new performance costumes. 

  • 2ndhandchic

    There is a pretty funny chapter in John Water’s latest book about Comme des Garçons. I can only think of him now when I see it.

  • To hell with GaGa ….I want the name of that tall hot bodyguard on the right! YUM!

    • MilaXX

       TLo have nick named this one Steriod Picard, but many of us are still missing the former bodyguard affectionately know as Hot Ginger Handler

      • Yeah, Steriod Picard doesn’t do it for me.  Was never much of a Trekkie anyhow.  But I’ve always loved a good ginger.

  • Stubenville

    Well this takes the concept of “jolie laide” to new heights.

  • She looks like a gigantic Whoopie Cushion!

  • gabbilevy

    She looks blazed out of her mind. Also, I think this is the perfect response to the weight “controversy.”

  • Sometimes fashion can be incredibly stupid.  This picture captures one of those moments.

    • You should check out Role Models by John Waters.  He has an entire chapter dedicated to his love of Comme des Garçons anti-fashion.  It’s hilarious.

  • MK03

    Violet Beauregard should never be used as fashion inspiration.

    • Violet! You’re turning Violet!

  • She is just too fabulously entertaining for words. Steffi, what would we do without you? The attention to detail on all her ensembles is amazing – love the shades and the boots and the lipstick!

    • holdstillnow

      I can’t believe how many negative comments this post is getting.  I think she looks really pretty!  The “dress” is really fun and clever.  And the shades!  Why has no one else commented on the shades?!  They’re pretty awesome.

  • YoungSally

    Does it close like a coat?  Or are one’s arms stuck like that?  It looks like a costume I wore as one of “Mother Cupcake’s” children in a production of the Nutcracker.

  • Kayceed

    Interesting. I had not heard of the weight gain – so a female star who gains 25 pounds and is not particularly apologetic is what passes for controversy these days? 

    • kimmeister

      Neither had I.

    • formerlyAnon

       I can’t get excited either. She’s an Italian-American gal who’s moving through her mid twenties. I don’t care how demanding her stage show is (& I don’t know) it’s going to get harder to stay skinny without a lot of discipline or questionable use of drugs. Big deal. She’ll strike her balance. Or not. Better overweight than perpetually speeding/tweaked/coked up.

  • It’s Veruca Salt’s snuggie. 

  • Steffi is incredibly talented, yet when she speaks in interviews, she exudes a combination of confidence, vapidness, and awkwardness. Her talk of “be yourself” clashes with the artifice of “hide your real persona behind a costume” that I see in pictures and on stage. It’s that contradiction that has me consistently flummoxed. I still have no idea who she really is and what she’s really about–and I am not sure she does, either. 

    Anyway, I think this is witty. I am no little monster, nor do I have an irrational dislike of her. Think of these as the statements of an intrigued observer. 

    • formerlyAnon

       I agree (about both what might go on in her head and the costume). I think she found her persona, buried herself in the pursuit of success and started making a ton of money too young to have matured normally. She’s probably trying – I think some of the more self-important celebrity sound bites come from trying to process & define and/or find some meaning in what they do. As with all of these young ones, now that I’m old enough to be mom, I just hope that she lands on her feet without having to scrape the bottom of the “hitting bottom” barrel or completely humiliating herself publicly.

      And staying stuck in this stage indefinitely – which often seems to go along with chronic substance abuse and/or real baggage that goes back to childhood – counts as humiliating oneself publicly, IMO. If you see/read enough interviews (I used to, I don’t anymore) you can think of the ones who still sound the same even as their 40s are passing by.

    • I think she is pretty young. I think I’m the same age as her, and day to day I might not tell you the same thing about my personality – much less be able to put it into words. 

  • She is saying, “What do you think of me now, assholes?”   Good for her. 

  • aja1223

    Love the statement.

  • Gumby’s sister

  • JaneDC

    If there is a God, somewhere there is a picture of her in this get up trying to get into a limo.

  • Imasewsure

    Definitely tired of those shoes – it was what I focused on rather than the dress which seemed “normal” to me – particularly with those awesome shades and the ladylike hair…. shoes gotta go though – Elton John used that style up in the 70’s

  • She looks so uncomfortable that it makes me uncomfortable to look at her.

  • It’s funny that you censored c*nt…

  • joe_tey83

    It looks like a safety float vest thingy for the Extremely Hydrophobic.

  • j_anson

    Good lord.

  • Zippypie

    She looks like she’s being turned into a blueberry in “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”  A blueberry with raspberry filling.  Where are the Oompa Loompas?

  • Eva_baby

    How is it even possible that she’s become a caricature of herself?  She’s not even fun anymore.

  • julnyes

    Love the shades and the hair.

  • GTrain

    Girl, it ain’t that deep. *Yawn*

  • I love her. 

  • VRuss

    Yikes… The crack she is smoking must finally gotten to her!

  • kimmeister

    Wouldn’t it be fun to see her leap onto a giant felt screen, and just stay there like a storybook character?

  • spooki C

    that thing looks wildly uncomfortable. I image it’s very hot and stiff and really hard to go to the bathroom in.

  • l_c_ann

    Dare I mention that it looks better on the runway?

  • patticake1601

    You do all know that the Gaga that appeared a little thicker was actually not her? 

    • PinkLemon

       Please explain

    • Laylalola

      I often don’t recognize her from photo to photo anyway, so there might as well be a stable of people playing the character Gaga.

    • JMansm

      Well her management has released statements that she eats too much pizza and pasta and needs to diet and is making her drop weight really fast rather than ordering new costumes. 

      • formerlyAnon

        If it’s really phrased like that, she needs to check in with her lawyers to see about getting new management. She’s the one fueling their gravy train, the least they could do is be respectful & professional in public.

  • Attagirl is right!  One of the things I like about Gaga is how she always restyles looks for herself and reaccessorizes…like the shoes on her.

  • LinXGUA

    My first reaction was: “Horrible. That’s horrible”
    But then i kept reading, and this is supposed to send a message.
    When your daily basics is to dress cuckoo, i find it hard to descipher when you’re making a point and when you’re only wearing an extravagance. Or is she sending an important message every time she dresses weird? So she’s forcing us to look at her non-stop and try to come up with a concept of why she’s dressing that way, every time? Girl, that’s tiring for you and for us.
    Literally, fashion as a languaje. Maybe someday i’ll understand. Maybe.

  • formerlyAnon

    & here I thought she was saying: “I’m making so much money that I can hire yet ANOTHER person to make up for the fact that neither hands nor arms are functional. (In addition to the ones I already pay to open doors, carry objects which would interfere with the theme of my ensemble, catch me when I wobble on my shoes, keep track of my schedule & repel invasive fans and/or random crazies.)”

    The fake hair is strangely lovely (& flattering).

  • She looks like an oven mitt.  And I’m on the “I miss HGH” train.  He was a hottie.

  • She looks like a freaking lunatic. 

  • Oh.  I thought what she was saying was, “I’m a woman trapped in a man’s body.”

  • HarperSmith

    Maybe I’m wrong and this is considered high fashion to some, but was this made with her in mind? How else would a designer seriously produce this? 

  • Larkin21

    What the actual fuck?

  • Sarah Thomas


  • She’s a living, breathing ColorForm!

    • OMG, you’re my age!  I just said the same thing, LOL!

    • formerlyAnon

      God, how cool if her perfume smelled like Colorforms! I loved that smell as a kid & I still do now.

  • I think she’s saying she wants to be a bottle of Pepto Bismol when she grows up.

  • Ann

    Its the Lady Gaga finger puppet.

  • granddelusion

    I have something I want to say:  WTF? And what did you do to HGH? Bring him back, and maybe I’ll pay attention to you, Lady Gaga.

    • granddelusion

      And why does she need to rely on these idiotic tricks? isn’t her talent enough?

  • Pterodactyl111

    I thought she was trying to say something about hot water bottles.

  • It looks like she was dressed by Colorforms!  (And if you remember those, you’re as old as me!)

  • save_the_hobbit

    She looks like technicolor toast. I LOVE IT. I would eat her while I was high, however.

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    i’ve never liked her but i gotta say i’ve also never liked her more than i do now.

  • TomBord

    The dudes faces in every one of those pics,  says it all. 

  • Alyson Lamble

    Is that her actual hair?  I don;t think I’ve ever seen her with such short hair.  (Jo Calderon doesn’t count, obviously)

  • MzzPants

    Gawdammit, where’s the ginger?

    • formerlyAnon

      Sad, isn’t it? I hope he’s just taking a break, but I imagine it’s not a job one wants to do forever.

  • pookiesmom

    I kind of love her for this. Good for her. 

  • PeaceBang

    The thing I want to know is: Can she walk in regular shoes any more? Because she always, always always has those hooves on.

  • Qitkat

    Commes-des-Garcons has some awesome perfume, but this thing is a bizarro world deflated Thanksgiving Macy’s balloon. Steffi, I think you are running out of ideas. And you don’t look like you’re enjoying yourself either.

  • Truly_Outrageous

    As crazy as it is I honestly like this dress (wait, we can call it a dress right?). But as usual I think Gaga over did it in the accessories department. She messed it up with those shoes.

  • Katy Perry is so angry Gaga got there first this time!

  • And she’s saying it with really bad hair.

  • afabulous50

    She’s getting tiresome.

  • turtleemily

    I thought she was saying, “This is what Grimace would look like if he had excess skin from sudden weight loss.”

  • MattCooper27

    Damn. Bald Bodyguard is insanely hot!

  • I think this is the funniest thing ever.

  • Rachel Council

    Well, SOMEONE had to wear it!
