Lady Gaga in Acne Studios in NYC

Posted on March 25, 2014

And now for a cool, creamy glass of Gaga.

Sometimes we wonder if design houses secretly wish Steffi wouldn’t wear their stuff. All that goofy-ass posing and contorting combined with that ratty Halloween wig render a pretty cool-looking garment completely invisible, if not unrecognizable. What’s the point of wearing something with such an interesting and unusual shape if you’re gonna obscure it like that? What’s with the hand gesture and the pursed lips?

And the more we look at it, the more the competing whites and yellows are really starting to bug.

    Is she taking a dump on the curb?

    • Kathy

      One of her handlers needs to get some cleanup bags.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Can’t let that vomit artist steal her thunder.

  • Lauren

    She’s been really disappointing as of late.

    I really want to wear that dress. It looks so snuggly.

    • RussellH88

      It’s a high fashion snuggie in the best possible way.

    • It’d be so good for long flights!

      • Rhonda Shore

        I’d want itin a slate grey.

        • kimmeister

          Or whatever the color of beverage is that you usually get on flights.

        • Yes, that would be more practical and flattering.

    • Tanagra

      I’m usually not a fan of neutral colors, but that off-white is so pretty and flattering on her. She’d look great if not for the tragic wig and “gotta pee” pose.

  • hughman

    The Ring.

  • SierraDelta

    Real shoes! She’s wearing real shoes!

    • decormaven

      Unfortunately, she’s wearing fake hair. The ugliest fake hair ever seen. Halloween wigs are better than this mop. Hell, mops are better than this fake mane.

      • SierraDelta

        You’ve got to accentuate the positive
        Eliminate the negative
        Latch on to the affirmative
        But don’t mess with Mister-In-Between

        • formerlyAnon

          and don’t mess with Mr. In Between!

          You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
          Bring gloom down to the minimum
          & have faith, Amen, or pandemonium’s
          Liable to walk upon the scene (amen).

          • SierraDelta

            Shall we sing this to each other in Ye Olde Folkes’ Villa by the Sea?

          • formerlyAnon

            Take out your hearing aids before I start singing & it’s a plan!

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I describe my singing voice that one that could shatter concrete, alas. In my fantasy life I CAN sing and dance…note, that is in my fantasy life….sigh

          • SierraDelta

            My college roommate told me I couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket. And she LIKED me.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Now that is tough love or friendship. Somewhere in my body is a Broadway chorine screaming to get out…in my dreams. Perhaps this is what comes of growing up with a mother who raised me original B’way cast recordings and Astaire and Rogers movies. Mom was also known to tap dance through the kitchen. I miss her.

          • SierraDelta

            To be fair, the roommie was a music major. . .

            What a lovely memory of your mother!

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Thanks-mom was a peach.

          • EveEve

            aw….there were a whole lot of our mums who would break out in the ol’ soft shoe once in awhile. I call them the Shirley Temple generation, because they all wanted to be just like her and if they could afford it, (Depression babies) they had tap dance lessons. I miss my mum too. But I digress. I really like the dress. Too bad Gaga mucked it up. She doesn’t have a very interesting style point of view.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            My mom grew up during the Depression, and I remember her talking about going to the movies for the escape from everyday life. And yes, Mom knew and liked Shirley Temple as well.

          • To illustrate my last remark
            Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
            What did they do when everything went dark?

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Man, they said you’ve got to accen-tuate the positive!

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Last year when Mr. 3 and I were in Savannah, Ga. I had Mr.B3 take my photo with the statue of Johnny Mercer…love that song!

        • decormaven

          I’m all about promoting the positive, but sometimes you gotta call a spade a spade. That wig is the wiggiest! But thanks for the great song. I always wonder what Kids of Today will be singing in the rest home. Somehow I don’t think humming Tip Drill will do it.

          • SierraDelta

            “I always wonder what Kids of Today will be singing in the rest home.”

            As long as it isn’t “Why Don’t We Do It in the Road. . .”

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Don’t mess with Mr. Inbetween! Noooo, don’t mess with Mr. Inbetween!”

      • formerlyAnon

        BALD is better than this wig.

    • my first thought as well 🙂

  • Danielle

    Hot Ginger Handler would have never allowed this fuckery on his watch.

    • Le_Sigh

      Steroid Piccard Handler! Get to it!

      :cracks spanking whip:

    • formerlyAnon

      I don’t know that he had ensemble veto power, but including a photo or two of him would have sweetened this series considerably.

      • Danielle

        We needed something to distract our eyes, for sure.

    • TheDivineMissAnn

      Oh, how I miss that man!

  • MilaXX

    Kudos for wearing regular shoes, but the wig & the poses ruin the look

  • Darcy H

    At first I was all “omg she’s wearing things she can move in” and then I was all “why is she posing like that? maybe constricting her movement isn’t a bad idea…” And then I wondered why someone with so many resources wears such terrible wigs.

    • kimmeister

      OMG you’ve discovered the secret: she can only walk fully upright in hideous hoof platforms.

  • clatie

    My 7 year old’s rapunzel wig looks better than that mess. HARUMPH

  • Jacob Bowen

    I LOVE those sunglasses but she should’ve paired them with a NON yellow bag (or just switched bags). Had this and the TOTALLY AWKWARD posing been changed I would be ALL IN on this super snuggly dress (ESPECIALLY since it snowed AGAIN last night and is FREEZING today…bad spring break).

    • demidaemon

      I know. It started snowing again just as I got out of work. I thought, “I love winter and all, but this has got to stop.”

  • elemspbee

    Was thinking “love it all, except being on her” 🙁

  • marlie

    If she wasn’t making the stupid poses and facial expressions, and had on a decent quality wig, I’d sort of love this for her.

  • littlestars

    I understand wanting to use wigs to switch your look up, but in her case, they almost always detract from the look because they’re so cheap and ugly (I like everything else here, but the wig kills it). She can obviously afford more expensive wigs, but elects to go for these ratty, unflattering ones. Why? What is she trying to accomplish by choosing these? I’m seriously asking…

  • Trickytrisha

    Too bad Monty Python isn’t still around to create a Ministry of Silly Poses for her.

  • madscntst

    Um…hmm…I dunno…the dress looks like it was a crochet project gone horribly wrong.

  • Coolekat

    She is wearing it backwards?

    • Anathema_Device

      It totally looks like it. The runway version doesn’t have the yoke or whatever in the front.

      • alyce1213

        And the sleeves are on the reverse sides.

    • BLauD

      I was wondering the same thing! The sleeves looked swapped and the yoke looks like it’s not right either. I’m fairly certain it’s on backwards…

  • teensmom99

    I am so happy to see real shoes.

  • Anathema_Device

    Laugh out loud funny, especially the photo where she’s stepping up on the curb. Cool knit dress that shoulda been worn by Tilda.

  • Sarah

    Is she trying to add hand model to her resume? She looks like a conceptual banana rendering.

  • lunchcoma

    I hate so many things about this, but she’s wearing something recognizable as clothing and has paired it with shoes a human being can actually walk in. For Gaga, that’s almost a WERQ.

  • MikeW_Vegas

    Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve never really gotten her appeal. What with all the “Look at me!!!” and the affectations, she tires me out.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      oh it’s not just you…i find her whole schtick exhausting..

    • In_Stitches

      When her and Katy Perry came out, I never would have figured that Katy would have been the one to have figured out that all artists need to evolve to thrive…Gaga’s grown stagnant.

      • Evan

        To be fair though, Katy’s music hasn’t really evolved all that much. It’s been more so her image and style. But in an industry and world where perception is everything, that’s important.

        • Jacob Bowen

          And Katy’s voice has DEFINITELY not evolved that much…

          • Evan

            Katy is a terrible singer, and dancer, and I doubt she writes as much of her songs as she claims she does considering she works with Max Martin and Dr. Luke, who have written and produced much of the past decade or two’s pop, including Britney Spears. So it’s kind of sad to me that she’s so popular. Even Rihanna can sing well sometimes (plus I prefer her style and personality, which seems more real to me), but I’ve yet to hear a Katy performance where I thought she sounded really good. She yells a lot when she sings.

    • MikeW_Vegas

      I also don’t really find her exceptionally talented. I think she relies on the schtick and the “smoke and mirrors” to hide that.. (JMHO)

      • Evan

        If you watch her acoustic performances, you can tell that she’s a very talented singer. She has the perfect voice for jazz (as evidenced by her duet with Tony Bennett and her cover of “Orange Colored Sky”) or Broadway. She has a much better voice than Madonna, but Madonna had more artistry in that she had better songs and was more versatile. Gaga’s lyrics are her weakest point. She’s not the great lyricist that she thinks she is. If she could lose her ego and find a co-writer like Patrick Leonard was to Madonna, I think she would be great.

  • jw_ny

    Acne Sudios? What an odd, and kinda gross, name for a company.

    Leave the duck face to Lea, and ship the dress off to Tilda…she’d rock it!

    • kimmeister

      The outsource their labor to the Acne Factory, aka every high school in America.

    • MilaXX

      I could even see Rhianna wearing this and making it looks sexy.

    • Kent Roby

      I choose to pretend that it’s a misspelling of Acme Studios, where the Road Runner is CEO; that would be more “real” than GaGa’s nonsense of late.

  • M Fox

    I think she’s posing as some sort of fashion bodhisattva.

  • lobsterlen

    I swear she does this shit so you don’t realize how friggen short she is.

  • JR Labrador

    At least her wig matches her shoes.

  • Guest

    Given that she promo’d the eff out of this garment by posting it all over her social media the day after a video release, I’ve come to the conclusion the way you two cover fashion is too outdated for you to justify saying bs like like ‘design houses don’t want her wearing her stuff because she doesn’t promo it, she makes it invisible’. You’re criticizing her posing lol, let’s not conflate it to her mitigating Acne’s exposure. The Bitter Kittens are an aging middle class fanbase of gay men and mothers, none of whom are consumers of high fashion, you’re not an authority on community building or how designs get there exposure. There I said it.


      • OffToSeeHim

        But surely *they* can’t love it when she goes out of the house with her wig askew! I like the whole look except for that, but once you see it, it takes the whole thing right down the crapper. I have an aunt (who’s 80) who does that with her beautiful clothes, and it makes it look like she bought everything at K-Mart. It’s the stars I *love* who make me suffer when they make these kinds of mistakes. Why not wear it with her own hair? She has pretty hair.

    • RedRaven617

      Please feel free to leave then. There I said it.

    • Trickytrisha

      Poor fanboy. He’s a tad unhappy with us.

      I’m trying to figure out who in this whole wide world would look at those pics of the Gaga and say “oooh, I wanna look like that, I have to buy that dress!”. Gaga uses the designers with little return to them. Who’s more likely to buy a designer item – teenaged fangurls or seasoned veteran BKs with MONEY? Hmmm?

    • MK03

      Oh, you’re adorable.

    • TRSTL

      Just remember: the “LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE” fan ended up doing porn. And, bad porn at that.

      • BlairBear

        also bad unsafe porn

    • BlairBear

      Wow lots of big words used ineffectively and saying nothing except you’re mean to the person I like so you are a dumb dumb. Also Acne is not high fashion it is contemporary fashion meaning it is in the 200 for jeans to 1500 for a leather jacket. it is similar to labels like Rag & Bone and Alexander Wang. Pricey but not high fashion. Also T & Lo write insightfully and with great knowledge about fashion but if you dont enjoy their opinions dont feel the name to type in their domain name.

    • demidaemon

      Don’t you know? We all are five year olds who type with our noses!

    • Jacob Bowen

      Wow, I guess I’ve aged 17 years in the past 2 weeks since my 23rd birthday…so where are my 4 children and hunky husband hiding?

      • Sarah

        Right? I have no children, and I’m not middle aged, but if you count my many years of trolling these celebrity fashion blogs, plus the additional personal time spent designing and fabricating clothing, I guess I don’t know a damned thing about fashion, and that’s why I read TLo. Because I like to “get there” opinions, of course.

      • formerlyAnon

        Oh, sweetie. Just cherish your aging, middle-aged status – you are, I’m sure Just So Pretty compared to your middle aged contemporaries, you’ll cut a swathe through ’em!

        )Our young Gaga apologist is going to be in for such a surprise when he or she realizes we are ALL aging, no exceptions.)

        • Jacob Bowen

          The Gay Man/Mother debate is one that the world will never know…I think you may be in better shape.

        • Tracy_Flick

          Despair? That depends. Do you own a handbag purchased at an outlet mall? If so, you are not a consumer of high fashion and you can be sure that you know NOTHING about community building.

          • formerlyAnon

            Worse. I have handbags purchased from Stein Mart (generally on sale and with some additional percentage off coupon) and a couple of nicer ones gifted by my recovering leather-accessories-aholic friend.
            I haven’t been to an outlet mall in years. You have to drive too far and there are too many people and waaaay too many choices without there being nearly enough choices that interest me. I am not just a middle class mum, I am a CRANKY middle class mother.

    • FridaStaire

      Wow, you really ARE a bitter kitten, Guest!
      BTW always a good idea to proof read rude rants before posting.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        I sometimes type out min-rants on my FB page, read them and delete them. Just typing out my grumpiness and then deleting it is enough-and spares me much embarrassment, as well.

    • Anna

      I am offended AND outraged for being excluded from these “Bitter Kittens” you speak of. I am neither a middle class gay man or a middle class mother.

      • marlie

        Me neither! I feel left out.

        • Anna

          The nerve of some people, so thoughtless and inconsiderate 😉

        • formerlyAnon

          I am having so much fun imagining that you two are excluded because you’re actually insanely wealthy – PLEASE don’t disillusion me.

          • Anna

            Ha! I enjoy imagining this insane wealth too.

      • FrigidDiva

        Well, I’m a mother at 29, so I suppose to Guest I’m a “middle class” mother. *rolls eyes*

        • Anna

          Indeed *eyeroll*. The comment is still giving me a laugh though, so I suppose there’s that.

          • FrigidDiva

            I may give myself a seizure if I roll my eyes any harder.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      As a non-mother, non-entertainer, non-wealthy person, well, you’ve just given me my laugh for the day!

  • ShaoLinKitten

    Why would a design house want to call itself Acne? That name does not conjure anything fashionable in my imagination.

    • Kent Roby

      Stands for Ambition to Create Novel Expression. Yes, very unfortunate (I hope the original Swedish name makes more sense)

  • judybrowni

    Surely she has hair of her own, I see it poking out from the edge of her Halloween wig.

  • Jean Beaton Leavitt

    This wig is in her new video so I suppose she is trying to get some milage out of it.

  • BlairBear

    that is the Olivia Pope wine cardigan/snuggie to end all wine cardigans

    • Kent Roby

      Yes! And only Fitz can slide her out of it effortlessly!

      • BlairBear

        Or maybe Jake. Apparently I should learn to scream at full tilt to attract men.

        • Kent Roby

          Jake would kill to get Olivia naked again. Literally.

          • BlairBear

            She uses him like he is one of her gladiators

  • In_Stitches

    She looks like the creature from Splice in that last shot. No me gusta.

  • VicD

    Dammit. I really liked it until I saw the hair.

  • GillianHolroyd

    Groucho walk.

  • Jecca2244

    the yellow makes the white look dingy…

  • paintedfish

    i am loving the current trend of schlumpy afghan wraps and elastic waist pants. i can just roll out of bed an onto the society pages.

  • SewingSiren

    Does she need to make pee pee?

    • demidaemon

      Maybe it’s a poo poo.

  • demidaemon

    True, but she’s wearing normal pumps. So it’s not all bad.

  • alliekat9090

    I am so completely tired of this woman.

  • Geoff Dankert

    When Kelly Mantle disses your wig … you in danger, girl.

  • quiltrx

    She appears to be blowing a fart kiss.

  • FridaStaire

    Hunchback of Duckface? Wait that is the start of a haiku:

    A hunchback duckface
    Haute couture at very worst
    So unflattering

  • Skippymom1

    “hand gesture and pursed lips” A reverse Miley?

  • formerlyAnon

    I cannot stand the wig in the most intolerant negative snit possible. Not sure why I chose this one to be offended by. Maybe because I think the dress is good on her.

    But man. She needs new schtick, or a no-schtick career adjustment, and she needs it soon.

  • V No Privacy

    I would forgive it all if she would spend more than 5 bucks on a wig. If you have Lady Gaga money, your wig wranglers best COME CORRECT.

  • KayEmWhy

    What’s going on with the hairline? Oh forget it she’s tired and I’m tired of her.

  • carnush

    That dress belongs on Tilda Swinton.

  • Lily

    I actually like this look to a point. The knit piece is spectacular and the pops of yellow add just the right amount of color. In fact, I covet that bag. COVET. That being said, I’d love to see this on someone who wasn’t trying so hard to BE a statement.

  • It’s much edgier on the model with the clunky shoes and simple hair. This is the one time she should have replicated the runway look.

  • BarleyBrando

    Isn’t it funny how a fantastic story behind a glass of craft beer (or wine) can make the drink taste even better? Or hearing the inspiration for a dish can make the food even more appealing? I used to find Gaga’s look so exciting, back when the story was also inspiring. Well, that ship has long sailed (and she sunk the ship at SXSW). So now the look has lost all its flavor for me.

    • marlie

      It’s because now, there is no story to inspire you/us. All she’s doing is churning out one completely crazy, incoherent look after another – sometimes multiple in one day. She’s relying on her name ad image to be enough that she doesn’t have to talk about her inspiration or the meaning anymore, and that’s to her detriment.

  • Gatto Nero

    Her body is covered and she left the hooves at home.
    I have to go lie down now.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Geez, even a turban would have been better than that wig!

  • ScarlettHarlot

    Is it sad that my feet breathed a sigh of relief for hers when I saw she was more reasonably shod here?

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I did a doubletake when I saw those heels;I’m so used to seeing Gaga with her assistants helping her walk in some godawfully outlandish footgear.

  • Crystal

    I wonder if she gets bored.

    • Gatto Nero

      With herself?

      • Crystal

        and with these styling antics.

  • unbornfawn

    She’s becoming tedious.

  • Clash D

    She needs to stop dressing like a lunatic and start wearing better makeup and hair. Going chic and classy is the only option for a Gaga reinvention at this point in her career.

  • JaCory Deon

    At this point she really should drop the antics and come with some serious, subdued french style glamour. It’s a pretty cool dress but needs somone with the taste (ala Rooney Mara & Co.) to pull it off. She really should ask Beyonce about getting some legit wigs because these dime store pieces she’s rocking aren’t working. Really though, who cares…take a seat Gaga.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    That dress is so unusual that I would love to have seenTilda Swinton wearing it rather than Gaga.

  • KT

    I actually really like this. The wig is horrible, of course, but I’m into the rest of the look, clashing and all.

  • St. Ace

    Is…is she wearing it backwards????
