Lady Gaga in Prabal Gurung at the 2013 MTV VMAs

Posted on August 26, 2013

Steffi must have an entire wing of her house devoted to her wigs. And a staff of dozens to lovingly maintain them, we hope. Reverent, quiet, white-gloved skinny little twinks, moving efficiently from wigstand to wigstand, blowing away imaginary dust, softly misting each wig with hair spray, patting it down, and putting the glass dome back in place. We bet you they wear lab coats. With sequins. We bet you they all silently judge each other’s wig-tending skills.

Let’s all close our eyes and picture it for a moment.


Lady Gaga attends the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York in a custom Prabal Gurung Spring satin gown with a tulle train printed with rubber rosettes.

The dress is perfectly Gaga; dark and dramatic. Goth Prom. We’re not sure about the lace train and the ugly flounce, though.

It’s surprisingly low key considering her history of showing up wearing meat or inside eggs or some other damn thing that looks like a grade school science fair project about the Four Food Groups. Here, she’s serving up Morticiadonatella. Which is fine, but unexpected. Maybe she figured there was going to be enough spectacle on display throughout the evening (including her own stage performance) that it would make more of an impact if she showed up somewhat quietly (for her).
