We’re almost disappointed in ourselves for liking this so much.
Lady Gaga seen leaving ITV Studios in London in Louis Vuitton.
Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 Collection
We initially saw this as a breath of fresh air from her; a costume that didn’t speak of mental illness or debilitating skin diseases; a costume that, despite the ridiculous platforms, she’s mostly free to move in (assuming no strong winds in the area); a costume that looks like something Cher would wear to the Oscars in the ’80s. What’s not to love here? But then we saw that it was Louis Vuitton and we realized she wasn’t so much wearing a costume as she was wearing really high-end fashion and worse, duplicating the runway styling almost exactly. There’s nothing wrong with that, but we feel bad that it’s the only thing she’s worn lately that we remotely like. Her various attempts at ART through costume lately have left us either or bored or actively annoyed. Maybe it’s us. Or maybe she just does better when she lets a high-end design house take over completely.
