Lady Gaga in Comme des Garçons at the Fashion Media Awards in NYC

Posted on September 09, 2013

There you go, Steffi. There’s the girl we’ve been waiting for.


Lady Gaga at the Fashion Media Awards in New York City in Comme des Garçons.

Comme des Garçons Fall 2013 Collection

We’re almost embarrassed how happy we are to see Fashion Gaga, because boy oh boy, we can’t tell you how tired we were getting of Toddler Having an Attention Tantrum Gaga. Give us extreme fashion over flashing your crack any day of the week. LOVE the suit.

But let’s talk about those tatty wigs, girl…

      that wig is horrendous. that suit is FIERCE.

    • Paigealicious

      I will say I’m liking her (relatively) low-key makeup look these days…

      • Constant Reader

        Me too. She really is very pretty.

    • marlie

      Fashion Gaga is so much better than “identity crisis” gaga. I love this suit on her. Yes, about those wigs…

    • Kiltdntiltd

      I LOVED this particular collection of menswear inspired stuff. And yeah, the wigs from CheapAssWigs have got to go.

      • another_laura

        Sheinhardt Wig Company, for sure.

    • RussellH88

      I really hope that Natasha Lyonne hair is not her Art Pop hair. She seems to go with certain hair types during her various incarnations like the broom hair from The Fame Monster and the Popcorn Butter Yellow Hair for Born this Way. This just looks dry and raggedy.

      But the suit is awesome and it’s better than Hello Nipples Gaga that we saw in the last post.

      • teensmom99

        Agreed but I’m loving Natasha Lyonne these days . . .hair and all.

      • Erica_Vuitton

        Its her Botticelli Babe hair so yes you’re right on it being part of the album concept.

    • YAELS

      Do you think she can’t put her arms down, or does she just walk like that for performance’s sake? Either way, love this.

      • SewingSiren

        Judging from the runway picture I would say she can, but won’t.

      • Vanessa

        I always assume it is the shoes that make her walk like she is on a tightrope. Someone should photoshop a balance bar into the photo.

      • NC_Meg

        I saw a video of this and she really was walking like she was on a tightrope. Someone commented that she looked super high walking like that and I couldn’t tell if they were right or it if was a performance. (Possibly both.)

        • Erica_Vuitton

          I had to seek this out just to see. The walk was so weird while being photographed and then she walked normally over to fans to sign autographs. Love the photographer in the background going “What the FUCK?”

          • jabes

            I wonder if she has any idea how idiotic and contrived she appears. It’s like MIley’s tongue at the VMAs. Just tone it down a bit!

    • annabelle archer

      I am so immune to her at this point that my only real thought on this is, “Huh, with a men’s inspired suit, I would have gone with sleeker hair.”

    • SewingSiren

      Pinstripe suit with optional air bag. Has a whiff of Klaus Oldenburg.

      • tereliz

        LOL, yes. The Comme des Garçons stuff often reminds me of Claes’s textile-based sculptures.

    • Karen Belgrad

      In the event of a plane crash, her jacket IS the flotation device!

    • KayEmWhy

      She’s been boring me lately. Not impressed.

      • Vickiefantastico

        I’m so over her. Like Hathaway over her.

        • KayEmWhy

          You got that right!

    • Little_Olive

      It’s gaga, I know, but this called for super sleek hair. A severe ponytail or an á la garçonne cut would have been killer.

    • teensmom99

      You made me realize that temper tantrum GaGa is actually “these are my sweats” GaGa. Now she’s really dressed.

    • teensmom99

      As much as the wigs are crap, as I look again, I think the concept of the hair getting all full on the bottom is a great echo of the sleeves.

    • Julie

      She looks like she took “batshit crazy” very literally.

    • elemspbee

      even with that tatty wig, this is sooooo much better than what she’s put out in the world the last few weeks.

    • MilaXX

      Hopefully this is the beginning of a return to form for Gaga. Now if only she would get rid of the ratty wigs.

      • decormaven

        Please, please let this be so. Sadly, I think we’re stuck with the wigs. They evidently are important to her now; why, I can’t fathom.

    • Danielle

      You WERQ that suit, Steffi.

    • IRVN

      Hermione on crack

    • mmebam

      Why do all of her wigs look like somebody backed over them in a pickup truck on a dirt road during a storm?

      • Frank Butterfield

        Somewhere in rural New Jersey, there is a fleet of pickup trucks parked next to a warehouse full of wigs surrounded by a dirt track. When the red flags fly and the wind starts to blow, brawny men get in those F-350s, start up the engines, and wait for the rain to fall. When it does, then a thousand wigs are laid out meticulously by an army of wig technicians on the dirt track. The engines roar to life and those brawny men do their jobs. This is life. This is Gaga.

    • kimmeister

      Holy smokes, that is one piece, not a suit. If memory serves, Comme des Garcons has served her well in terms of high impact pieces.

    • RedRaven617

      It looks like a jumpsuit to me. If so, that’s a whole lot of fabric at your feet if you need to use the ladies’ room.

    • jmorino08

      She is a mess. She just needs to go home and take a long nap and reprioritize a bit!

    • JaCory Deon

      That suit is extraordinary – her styling/wig however is not. If she insists on wearing the damn things, at least visit Beyonce’s stylist (Kim Kimble I think?) and get it right…these rats nests have got to go! (Personally, I would’ve pulled her hair back super tight in a bun and done very goth-inspired makeup or something nude looking…the makeup they’ve given her looks like bad Melanie Griffith in Working Girl.)

    • Lucie Smith

      Gaga, my wigs are less tacky than that and I’m on the ‘$100 or less and last for months’ plan. Maybe Hot Ginger Handler could bathe and comb them for you since he’s MIA. (The suit is fab though.)

    • kingderella


    • BitterOldQueen

      Love the suit more than is probably good for me. The wig is just silly, and I’m still not loving the nose ring.

    • Sam Smith

      those are some puffy sleeves!

    • formerlyAnon

      It all makes sense to me but the wig.
      Please, Ms. Gaga, please keep aiming for this mark.

    • LaSylphide

      That suit is so beautiful I’ll put up with the distracting sleeves, although they are kind of glamorous. Too bad about the hair.

    • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

      The shorter do she’s been seen in is gorgeous on her. If it’s a wig, it works for her.

    • Chris ‘Supermarky’ Maher

      totally ‘wore it better’ than the model! I think Rei would like the wig, or worse! think it works here. . .

    • Trickytrisha

      She looks like she’s miming ice skating, in pillowy, billowy, ill fitting, made for someone 8 inches taller, man tailored… overalls? If this was anyone else we’d be scoffing.

    • VioletFem

      This suit is right up her alley and she is the only celebrity who can get away with wearing this. The wig on the other hand is ridiculous. I’m convinced that she salvaged it out of Beyonce’s trash can.

    • quiltrx

      That suit is equal parts crazy and fierce…love it!
      I think this wig is the right proportion for the look…but NOT the right *quality*. Maybe she’s making some weird Amanda Bynes statement with these things..

    • bellafigura1

      I love the jump/suit on the model but it looks like it’s swallowing Gaga.

    • Therese Bohn

      She’s ready to fall overboard! Yet I find it strangely cool! The wig does need combing.

    • valerie saenz

      Officially tired of this woman.

    • GTrain

      I long for those months we had without her attention grabbing antics. It was so… nice.

    • Fred Vaughn

      That wig is kinda ass… Everything else ROCKS!

    • rage_on_the_page

      Shangela Season 2 has better wigs. But maybe that’s the point?

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Oh come on, she’s having fun with us right? Deciding that her ‘thang’ this time out is going to be horrendous wigs. I think she is making fun of this dumg, and ‘over it yesterday’ hair trend of the long hair. All the gals and their nearly horrendous wigs…that everyone pretends aren’t wigs. uh-huh….

    • dharmabum8

      Hermione is 100% done with your shit, Ron.

      • Shawn EH

        He better watch out for paper sparrows and exploding locks!
