Lady Gaga in Marc Jacobs at “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”

Posted on October 05, 2018

This blog is in full-on GagaStan mode lately, what with the review of A Star is Born, the upcoming podcast in which we actually bicker a bit over the review because one of us has a much more critical view of the film than originally considered, and of course, Steffi’s never-ending fashion poledance. But we may as well all settle in comfortably, because Miss Gaga’s going to be riding this train for all its worth right up to her seat at the Oscars. We, as bitchy fashion bloggers, are delighted by the neverending stream of content possibilities. That doesn’t mean we will stop being bitchy, however. Consider this schmatta, if you will:

 

Hmm. We’d almost think that Gaga, trying to adhere to a more mainstream celebrity style right now (When was the last time you saw her in hoof boots?), may not have nailed her mainstream talk show appearance lewk. Credit for choosing something with so much visual personality, but it really is a goofy little garment. The print is mumsy and the abundance of velvet trim looks weird on a billowy, sleeveless, caftan-like sack with a high summer feel to it.

 

 

 

 

It’s a whole lot for a talk show set, but that part doesn’t bother us as much, considering the bigness of her persona and her long history of loud fashion. To us, this comes off like an attempt to thread the needle of mainstream glamour while maintaining an on-brand sort of Gaga kooky-ness, to use a very technical fashion term. We might have been okay with this at a photo call or red carpet, but it’s definitely overwhelming and distracting in this sort of setting.
