Lady Gaga – Double Shot

Posted on August 29, 2013

Steffi’s Attention Tour ’13 has been continuing at a frenetic pace and we couldn’t possibly keep up with her six-times-a-day costume changes, but we have to admit, we love this one:


Lady Gaga leaves her hotel in London in a Vivienne Westwood jacket and pencil skirt paired with an Hermès clutch and Casadei pumps.

Vivienne Westwood Fall 2013 Collection

Not because anything here looks good on her – because from wig to skirt, nothing really does – but because her “Queen of England” miming is hilarious. Holding the bag in front of her, Betty Windsor style, is brilliant. Love the hat and shoes.


And then there’s this:

Lady Gaga leaves her hotel and heads to a Fish And Chip’s shop called “Seashell of Lisson Grove” in North London in a DKNY Intimates Signature bra.

Which we can’t. No, seriously. You’re on your own. Pro Tip: If you want to piss off a whole bunch of Gaga fans, say that she’s trying to grab the spotlight back from Miley.

Also: Katy Perry should write “POP” and “TART” on her palms and get photographed sometime in the next week, just to be a bitch. It’s what we’d recommend.

      I love the first look, but the second one looks like Natasha Lyonne tried to make an outfit out of doilies and trashbags for the Litchfield Prom.

      • MasterandServant

        Yes! This is what I keep seeing

      • MasterandServant

        “Nicky’s Lesbian Prison Prom”

      • Lucía Gavello

        She looks like an actual crime scene. Nicky is better than that!

      • Anastasia

        Amazing! Just swap in the seashells (?) on Gaga’s head for some dandelions and we’ve got ourselves a high school special.

      • Nelliebelle1197

        I have no idea what she actually looks like. I do not know whether that is good or bad.

    • Laura Stechschulte

      There’s something so Marie Antoinette about the wigs, especially the first one.

      • NC_Meg

        I was thinking more little mermaid on acid what with all the shells.

        • fuflans

          birth of venus hair, milady de winter’s hat.

      • ralish

        Jack Sparrow. That’s the pirate, right?

    • Anastasia

      First Look: Carrie Bradshaw in “An American Girl in London”
      Second Look: Samantha Jones exits a London nightclub.

    • Latin Buddy

      Helena Bonham Carter is on the phone for you…she sounds pissed

      • MoHub

        Definitely got HBC from the first look, but HBC would do it better.

        • barbarienne

          The first look is HBC + the queen, so there’s some latitude available, I think.

        • decormaven

          Most definitely!

      • StellaZafella

        Like this many many times.

      • H2olovngrl

        Crap, I should have scrolled down! I didn’t think anyone else caught that! I should have known better with the BK’s!

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      HBC is mocking her sad attempts in the first look. Everyone is mocking her sad attempts in the second. I thought she had more tricks up her sleeve… sort of disappointed.

    • Melanie Suzanne

      She looks soft and pretty in the first set of photos, and my first thought was “why on earth does she have an audience with the Queen?”

    • Erica Woods Tucker

      The second look seems to make her look like she’s going on a shrimping boat. I think Lindsey should try to top Gaga, MIley and Katy this week….wait, she’s done that already.

      • Imasewsure

        The natural evolution from Steam Punk to Shrimp Boat Punk of course.

    • hughman

      Finding Emo.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      What is she holding in the second set of pictures? Is it a sippy cup with legs?

      • Fordzo

        It is some kind of sippy cup. The top is a Nalgene top, but I don’t recognize the bottle part from the Nalgene website. Maybe it’s one that is sold in England?

      • kimmeister

        I’m not sure what its function is, but it appears to be in the shape of a pig’s snout turned downward. In the last picture, you can make out the 2 nostrils on the bottom.

      • NC_Meg

        She had it backstage at the VMAs too. I’m not sure what’s in it or why she has it. Maybe it’s like the cup & saucer she carried around a few years ago. (Although I don’t know what the point of that was either so just nevermind.)

    • MK03

      She looks like a Barbie you’d find at Goodwill.

      • HomeOfficeGirl


    • newleaf1

      She’s in England. The second look is a callout to Amy Winehouse wandering the streets in her undies. It has to be. Anyone agree?

    • Clueless_Jock

      The suit is too big.
      The pants are too big.
      And the hair is too big.

    • Fordzo

      Who made her pasties?

      • H2olovngrl

        Donna Karan is head in hands, weeping somewhere…

        • Fordzo

          I bet she required medicating.

    • Mori Rene

      lies down, violently misses old steffi. maybe im just being stuffy but i dont get the trend lately to dress with as little style as possible… these aren’t even well-crafted looks. they’re “fuck it what can i put on to look CRAZY today??” looks.

      • sagecreek

        You’re not wrong, dear Mori.

      • SylviaFowler

        These are just costumes. They’re not meant to be taken as seriously as all of that.

    • imspinningaround

      Can somebody tell me what facial surgery Gaga had while she was recovering from her hip surgery? That’s not shade, I think she looks great, but she looks different and I can’t put my finger on what it is.

      • The Gifted Collector

        I’m guessing her nose was sculpted slightly.

      • SylviaFowler

        She looks the same to me. She has a face that can look wildly different with even minor changes of hair color, wig, or makeup technique.

      • Derek_anny

        I think it’s just that we’re not used to seeing her eyes.

    • Sarah

      I don’t know why she hates shirts. What did shirts ever do, but keep us from having to look at her tits all the time? Poor shirts, they didn’t mean to offend.

      • conniemd

        I thought perhaps some stylist she had fired went through her closet and pulled out all the shirts and started a bonfire in the yard with them.

      • sugarkane105

        She used to hate pants and always wore a leotard. We’ve transitioned from Gaga’s pantsless period to her shirtless one, apparently.

        • Sarah

          Maybe she thinks it is POP ART to eschew garments we non-celebs consider default.

        • oohsparkley!

          I wanted to like this many, many times. I think you’ve nailed her plan.

    • sagecreek

      I dunno, re the first look, I think HBC should sue her for copyright infringement.

      I refuse to acknowledge the second look.

      • annabelle archer

        She’s Gaga, she’s never had an original look. HBC will have to get in line behind Bowie, Jones, Madge and a host of others.

        • veronicafish

          Or an original sound.

      • Sarah

        HBC wears a lot of Westwood, true, but she always has it tailored perfectly, and favors different shoes. I don’t think she’d be offended at a lesser mortal’s attempts at working the look.

    • Barbara Thomas

      Both outfits are way too big. And does anyone else think she looks like Bette Midler (in the face, not the hideous clothes).

    • nyazgirl


    • Kent Roby

      She is really working those seashells in her hair (and even dining at a restaurant with “seashell” in its name) to sear the Venus image from her new video into our brains. I agree with loving the first look (a bit of HB-C realness), but weren’t visable nipples like 3 seasons ago?

    • DilettanteDeconstructed

      I am not a Lady Gaga fan at all, but I will say her makeup looks lovely in both of these.

    • RedRaven617

      Her face looks the prettiest I have seen in the first shot. Her makeup is great and her face lovely. Normally I don’t think she is that attractive. As to her clothing choices; eh, she’s Lady Gaga.

    • Call me Bee

      Oh fer cripes sake. I can’t….

    • Introspective

      should i be ashamed or tickled pink that i have the same bra as she’s sporting in pic 2?

      but no really, what in the actual fuck is going on in pic 2???

      • annabelle archer

        Tickled. Unless you’re sitting at your desk sans shirtless and in trash bag pants. Then, probably ashamed. Unless of course, it’s Casual Thursday.

        • Introspective

          i love you for this. and i clearly need to work at your job so that i can get down with the way yall do casual thursday 😉

      • alyce1213

        I wearing the same bra right now. I’m not ashamed because I have a shirt over it.

        • kimmeister

          What do you do when it gets chilly?

    • NoveltyRocker

      Captain hook hairdressed by Neverland mermaids in that profile shot. That sounds like an insult but these are the kind of looks that make Gaga imaginative and fun to me. I hope the seashells are a signal she’s transitioning out of a “black catsuit, add character wig” interest.

    • ErmengardeGreen

      I like Gaga as Helena Bonham Carter, but the second look is like someone’s half-assed Lady Gaga Halloween costume.

    • kirkyo

      She actually looks pretty in the first look, esp. her makeup. The model in the same outfit is freaking me out a bit.

    • marlie

      She’s looking a little ridiculous to me in both sets of pictures. The first bunch – Helena Bonham Carter does it better. The second bunch – I just can’t…

    • mjude

      i like the 1st look. but i just dont get the 2nd look. the weather here is over 100, can you imagine wearing those pants/

    • mmebam

      The most shocking outfit of all will be jeans, a white tee, and her natural hair.

      • marlie

        With little/no makeup, and a pair of plain old ballet flats or something.

      • Jacquelyn

        And she wold probably look gorgeous. She has a killer body and a sort of natural beauty. I’m really quite tired of her “be as crazy a possible” thing.

      • foodycatAlicia

        And no stupid 5 o’clock shadow and alter ego

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      David Byrne + Mad Hatter + beach debris.

    • Katesymae

      Second pic: Trash bag Centaur?

      • foodycatAlicia

        YES! She the back end of a BDSM My Little Pony.

    • Manon @ CMR

      Her current wig actually reminds me a lot of Nicky’s hair in Orange is the New Black.

    • alyce1213

      She looks ridiculous — laughable, really — in the first shot. As many have said, HBC does it better and without an ugly wig that makes a great hat look like it’s falling off her head. At this point, the wig is just disgusting.
      The second look, accessorized with pink sippy cup, is just a garbage bag. Must mention, though — that’s the bra I wear: DKNY Signature Lace. Great bra, very reasonable $. But I always wear something over it.

    • Courtenay P

      there’s obviously nothing in the bag in the first shot. that’s just irritating.

    • Qitkat

      The top one, it’s a bit *puss-in-boots visits the queen*, but I really don’t think the suit fits properly, as it seems much too large in places, and somehow her overall proportions feel off kilter.
      I refuse to comment on look #2.

      • Qitkat

        Actually I do have something to add. I’m also wearing just a bra (not this pretty pink one though) and pants (jeans) right this minute, but I’m also at home plastering a wall, while expecting the temps to head over 90° any minute now. I’m especially fetching when I have my respirator on! I would say TMI? but obviously on this post, it would take a lot more to be TMI. lol.

    • Jacquelyn

      Someone PLEASE burn that wig. Ugh.

      Everything about both outfits is ridiculous and that last one looks cheap. She is so clearly trying to stay in the spotlight by being as “outlandish” as possible and then hiding behind her “this is just who I am” speech. Not buying it.

    • bertkeeter


    • IMNAngryLiberal

      Shhh,,,Steffi is trying to grab the spot light back from Miley. Can you imagine how pissed she was the day after the VMA’s when the outrageous person everyone was talking about was NOT HER!!

    • Jecca2244

      Her face looks really different. is it the natural (for her) makeup?

    • sekushinonyanko

      Lady Gaga looks better dressed as Helena Bonham Carter than as Miley Cyrus as Rihanna. Not a huge surprise.

    • Ashley Alvarez

      I just. No.

    • Mary Nease

      I’m not a huge fan of these outfits, but I kind of love how she’s turned into a mermaid.

    • Sarah Winningham

      The first look is giving me Mermaid Businesslady, which is a movie I would sincerely watch: Her cellphone is a shellphone! Her briefcase is a clamcase! Her desk is also clamshell themed!

    • JaCory Deon

      I’m already tired of seeing this chick and the album hasn’t even dropped yet. Anyway, there’s a desperation about it now. Perhaps there always was, but it’s VERY pronounced at the moment. And please someone take that Beyonce B’Day Tour wig away from her and get her a good one if she wants to rock this “Venus” look.

    • MilaXX

      This is sad. The queen of England drag is a little amusing, but just a bit. The second look is just pathetic.

    • formerlyAnon

      Look #1 seems like she’s getting back on the horse after her recent fall from my sartorial good graces. Inexplicably enough the 2 sizes too big look appears to be the designer’s intention.

      #2 is just uninspiring in every possible way except mousy.

    • AmeliaEve

      Taking GaGa and her styling out of it for a minute, what is with that gray suit? The proportions look just like the suit I bought when I graduated in 1982, right down to the fussy little gathers on the skirt. Speaking of which, if it has all that gathered fullness, I don’t think you can rightly call it a “pencil skirt.” The low roll on the lapels seals the deal for a full early ’80s style. If we are going to have the ’80s back, I want the sassy ’80s, not the demure version.

      • alyce1213

        Yeah – isn’t a pencil skirt supposed to be slim and fitted? No big pleats or poofing out.

      • DTLAFamilies

        i was thinking the same thing, that I had the same suit in 1982 when I worked on Wall Street. Can’t get more demure than that.

    • Donna Tabor

      The Little Mermaid channels Camilla Parker Bowles, and then whiplashes back to combining with Amy Winehouse.

      Whoa. I’m feeling a bit dizzy.

    • decormaven

      The wig stylists are working overtime this week. Can’t wait to see what flotsam they’ll weave into the next look. Is it part of a puzzle? What are we to infer from these random bits of “art”?

    • BeeBeauNYC

      The new handler is hot – I will give her that.

    • leahpapa

      It’s Botticelli’s Venus through the ages! See Edwardian Venus apply for a bank loan! Marvel as Venus discovers Flock of Seagulls and amphetamines!

    • kimmeister

      The styling on the Westwood model is really disturbing.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      I think she’s trying to grab the spotlight back from Miley.

    • Tanya Wade

      Mermaid Steampunk! And the second getup includes a child’s sippy cup. Oh Lady Giggles….you amuse!

    • elemspbee

      fit is terrible on that bland-colored skirt. And I know I’ve said this a few times–what is happening, or not happening, to her face?

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I miss the teacup.

    • Lilithcat

      Oh, dear. You know who that first shot reminds me of? There are certain elderly women, with not much money, who show up at gallery openings, in part for the free food, but also because at some point in their youth they were, or hung out with, artists. They generally wear too much rouge on their cheeks, have ratty wild hair (often a wig), and some sort of outré clothing choice.

      She’s one of them, several decades too soon.

      • Alloy Jane

        Can you imagine if someone decided to go to openings strictly to photograph these ladies and then made an exhibition of the results? It would be sad and beautiful, like the wall of Lost Pet flyers from the Street Art exhibition the MOCA had a few years back that my picture thingie is from.

    • susan6

      The first outfit was clearly ripped off the back of Helena Bonham Carter. The second outfit, I don’t even know. Garbage bag in front of a Victoria’s Secret on some ocean boardwalk? What’s with the sea shells? Is there some sort of mermaid or Birth of Venus theme on her next album?

      And the whole “Pop Art” or “Art Pop” thing or whatever it is…..reminds me of when Bono became insufferable.

      I do like “Applause”, gotta give her that.

      • silaria

        The video for Applause is all about her old persona dying and being reborn, complete with Venud on the Half Shell imagery, and sea shells as pasties.

    • Lori

      Attention whoring on this level always strikes me as being an admission that the person does not possess any qualities that would actually make people want to pay attention to them. It’s like standing on the corner yelling, “I have no talent”, hether or not the person actually does have talent.

    • Trickytrisha

      I wonder if the Brits are amused at her mocking their style choices while wearing a wig that looks like it got dredged up out of the ocean after residing there for 15 years?

    • amanda lynn

      That first one just brings a smile to my face. The second one is awful, but I still can’t stop smiling at the first one.

    • frannyprof

      She is NOT carrying a sippi cup with outfit #2??????!!!!!

    • teensmom99

      Of cousrse, LadyGG has the problem of what to do for a 2nd act. Until the Queen Mum in drag look (no. 1), she hasn’t figured it out. I kind of like the idea of scaling back but not sure what to suggest. I mean how to you outdo a dress made of meat?

    • largishbearishAtlish

      the crooked hat is giving me eye twitching..sigh.
      and you had to ruin it by posting the second “look”. no comment. just NO.

    • Michelle Wilson

      Oh, please let Katy Perry do that. I would love her for it.

    • poggi

      As someone who wears a great deal of what she eats, I appreciate the practicality of the second look for a fish and chips fest–no shirt to drop anything on and pants that wipe clean. However, despite the easy cleanup, I like the first look much better than the second slutty fishmonger outfit.

    • Veronica1022

      But at least you included a shot of her hot handler.

    • MissusBee

      As a Brit, I find her compulsion to do a Mary Poppins on crack bit every time she sets foot on these shores deeply irritating. Like the last time with the cups of tea. Kind of the sartorial equivalent of saying ‘Blimey Guv’nah! Sausages and mash!’ and thinking it’s hilarious.

      That first hat is Renaissance Fair hat realness and I love it.

    • ChelseaNH

      “If you want to piss off a whole bunch of Gaga fans, say that she’s trying to grab the spotlight back from Miley.” That was, in fact, my first thought.

    • JDreesen

      i’m still convinced she is “gently” mocking other celebrities (but with a Gaga-esque interpretation, natch). the top one is Katy Parody from her outing earlier this week in the All Business on the Starship getup, and the bottom one is Miley’s performance at the VMAs (not Miley herself, but her actual onstage performance).

    • Tracy_Flick

      Helena Bonham Carter does that first look about 1000x better.

      The second one – fish and chips shop? She’s going to get grease on her plastic pants.

      • Vera

        Precisely my first thought when I saw Gaga’s look is how HBC would do it better…

    • AlisonS

      Are we sure this isn’t Alaska Thunderfuck?? ‘Cause other than being a little shorter, I swear I can picture her in that second outfit.

      • Mefein

        I’m seeing Alaska with a bit of L’il Poundcake thrown in (trashbag overalls?)

    • mhleta

      It has to be EXHAUSTING to be her. Even more exhausting to be her ladies in waiting.

    • macwell

      I was with her until the last outfit. Oh Stephanie :(

    • Juan S. Esteves

      1st look is for HBC people!!!

    • quiltrx

      I kind of love the first look. Both polished and crazy, which is awesome.

    • nannypoo


    • DamH

      I’m pretty sure Miley is her latest inspiration.

    • mickiemonkey

      The model in the Vivianne Westwood is going to give me some serious nightmares.

    • SorayaS

      Going to a fish and chip shop in fisherman pants- hilarious.

    • Jacob

      Alaska Thunderfuck. The house down.

    • H2olovngrl

      In regards to the first look, I like to think right after these pics were taken, HBC showed up and slapped her for attempting to steal.her style thunder.

    • HVM

      How did her wigs manage to clear customs? It looks like cooties are nesting in there.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Holy Hot Mess, Batman!

    • Diego!

      Oh Lord… no! Miss Hobbit in the first picture, Miss Trashy and Slutty Universe in the second. No honey, no.

    • GorgeousThings

      Little Mermaid goes to the office. In her mother’s suit.

      Later that evening, Little Mermaid goes clubbing. In waders.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      She looks like she’s channeling Helena Bonham Carter in the first look.

      • Shawn EH

        That is one style-war I’m a bit scared of seeing.

    • kingderella

      she looks like bonham carter in the first one, which is a compliment.
      she looks like kesha in the second one, which isnt.

    • Adrianna Grężak

      Love the first look as well, even though she looks like she got into her grandmother’s closet. She looks so genuinely happy and comfortable this year

    • Danielle

      I just can’t with the wigs.

    • halo323

      Does she look unwell in any of these shots to anyone else? In that first set she has the facial expression that I have when I’m at work with the flu– the “NO SERIOUSLY I’M FINE” look. (Maybe it’s jet lag in her case?)

    • Sadie-Ann

      She’s always been crazy, but she used to be a lot more polished about it. Her looks drove me nuts then, but now I sort of miss them.

    • khaleesi

      She’s had plastic surgery i think and hmmm…she’s really working hard for the attention nowadays, really really hard

    • Cathy S

      The first look was really great. I can’t get behind the trash bags in look 2 though.

    • Shawn EH

      So the underlying concept is … she’s just floated in on the half-shell? She’s the goddess of love, but crazy? I don’t mind it, personally.

    • JP

      That rat’s nest wig thing makes her look like a blonde Amy Winehouse.

    • guest2visits

      Wigs…why wear only one at a time when 2 can carry as much sh*t as a large purse. Is that a sippy cup…? The second outfit is what it is, but I found myself wishing the skirt for her suit was a shorter, better fit.

    • HobbitGirl

      I think the second one’s great, if only that she’s making the point that if you’re going to appropriate a look, GO FOR IT. Don’t just do things half-assed (insert “twerking” reference here).

    • Guest

      Helena Boham Gaga.

    • NurseEllen

      The two of these together are reminding me of Bette Midler’s old “Clams on the Half Shell Revue”.
