Just because the menfolk gave us something to fight over this week doesn’t mean the ladies did not also serve their best efforts on the red carpet. Two champions of the venue face off against each other in surprising choices! Two ladies who love themselves a bold, highly photogenic look! Two stars taking the kind of approach you’d figure the other one would! The critically lauded actress went Tacky Glam and the meat-dress wearing pop star served Eleganza! Who could’ve figured?
Lo’s Defense: As we said the first time, it’s loud and bold at a time and place where it served her well to be those things. It’s also really fun, combining high-fashion motifs with eye-searing colors and street culture aesthetics. If there’s such a thing as a badass gown, this is it.
T’s Defense: It’s grandiose in a way that could arguably be called obnoxious in this setting, but it’s so perfectly on-brand for her and her sense of theatricality and drag-like artifice. The spray-on hair color was the perfect Gaga touch. As a fashion moment and as a PR moment, this can’t be beat.
Two Titans of fashion! Two touch choices! Lots of exclamation points!!
