Well, we noted in the runup to this that they were truly pulling out all the stops – Gaga especially – to sell this film as a major Hollywood moment and sure enough, they did it.
Not that we’re actually patting ourselves on the back for our foresight. “We just BET Lady Gaga will use fashion to promote her motion picture debut!” ranks pretty high in the “Stating the Obvious” sweepstakes. Even so, this is truly breathtaking on Steffi’s part; a moment of high drag and high fantasy. She looks exactly how we imagine she wanted to look: elegant, glamorous, and just a tiny bit outrageous. You hear and read fashion people talk about “creating a moment.” This is what they mean. It’s a combination of garment, styling, wearer, event and any emotional background brought to the table. You wanna step int0 Streisand’s shoes? Into Garland’s? You damn sure better come correct. You nailed it, Steffi.
Oh hey, Brad. You look good too.
