2009 has definitely been the year of underwear-as-fashion, but horrible support underwear that looks like something your granny would wear. And this dodgy trend for enormous knickers, massive mom-bras and – horrors! – that terrible 90′s trend, the sheer body, was exemplified perfectly by performers at the UK’s V Festival over the weekend.
Katy Perryrocked the huge underwear fad not once but twice, at each of the festival’s locations, and while Lily Allen looks great, it was despite that disaster in Lycra. Meanwhile, the giant undercracker’s main promotor, Lady Gaga, still hasn’t changed out of that sparkly space girl outfit. Someone lend this woman a few dollars! [Photos: WireImage]
No, your eyes do not deceive you, that is Lady Gaga and she’s actually wearing pants for once. True to her word that she was going to take herself down a notch, Lady Gaga strolled through Israel yesterday in a black jumpsuit and covered her head in a scarf. Gaga said prior to her trip that she expected an “emotional and spiritual experience” in the Holy Land and would show her respect by covering up. She performed in Tel Aviv last night, wrapping up her Fame Ball tour. [MTV. Photo: GettyImages]
You have to hand it to Lady Gaga for taking fashion risks and oftentimes coming out looking uniquely chic and fantastic, but this getup is wrong on so many levels. Lady Gaga emerged in Japan looking more dime store hooker than chart topping, VMA nominated diva, with purple pink hair, leopard panties over a black leotard, and thigh high black boots. Even Gaga cannot pull this one off. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Lady Gagabetter watch out, because we have a feeling Miss Piggy is gonna kick her ass. The singer showed up to an interview in Germany dressed like Jim Henson‘s acid trip – in a coat (and tiny hat) made of Kermit the Frog heads. Of course, Gaga has a very good excuse for her ridiculous getup.
“My friends and I in New York…we believe in vanity,” she said. “I dress this way all the time because it inspires my life. I dress this way because my whole life is art and my whole life is performance.”
Just keep telling yourself that, Gaga. PETA may not hate your coat, but every American who grew up on The Muppet Show sure does. Watch the interview below the jump.
Even by Lady Gaga standards, we’ve been impressed by the crazy level in her outfits the last few days — first there was the Muppet skirt and now she’s slinking around London after her gig dressed as a mouse. Gaga dined out at hip Soho restaurant Balans in a woolly black dress (despite the hot weather), topped off with a pair of veiled ears. Yep, she’s still got it.
Despite her ever-wacky dress sense, beneath the costumes lies a pretty astute woman. Gaga spoke out about why she can’t stand the plethora of music contest shows, like Britain’s X-Factor. “I’ve not been asked [to appear], but I would never go on anyway. Music is not something you should judge others on. I have nothing to say about Simon Cowell,” she said. And then she goes and confuses everybody again by claiming she’s married to Kanye West. “I’m married to Kanye. I love and admire him so much. As I say, we’re married,” she said. Whatever you say, Gaga. We’re not going to argue with a woman with spiky ears. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Did we miss the memo where muppets were declared en vogue? While we’re unable to identify which muppet Lady Gaga specifically beheaded for her skirt, we know one thing for sure — it’s hideous. She rocked the Jim Henson look from head to toe at a charity concert in Manchester, UK, paying homage to Miss Piggy with her blonde ringlets and light pink lipstick. While lost in Muppetland, Gaga let her nipple loose, to the paparazzi’s delight. See pic below.
Katy Perry sure knows how to keep a crowd happy. The star performed at Scotland’s annual T In The Park festival over the weekend, and wore a custom-made tartan mini-dress specially for the occasion. Cute! She also won over the crowd, saying, “I’ve seen many marriage proposals. But sorry, the answer is no. I can’t see your face, honey!”
Meanwhile Lily Allen seemed to have stopped off at the Lady Gaga dress-up stall on her way to the stage. Wearing a pair of granny undies in leopard print and some shiny tights, Lily was reportedly booed when she lit up a cigarette and proclaimed, “It’s my last gig for three days so I’m going to get p***ed tonight.”
Of course, our favorite fashion nutjob Gaga was also there, wearing a…hang on a minute, we’re sure we’ve seen this outfit somewhere before. She really must be broke. [Photos: Getty Images]
Style maverick Lady GaGa definitely doesn’t get her outlandish outfits from the high street — and it’s this addiction that has left her totally broke. According to the star, who’s had Number One successes around the globe, forking out on all those gimp masks and bubble dresses has wiped all her cash out.
“I’ve gone bankrupt about four times now. My manager wants to shoot me. Every dollar I earn goes on the show. Now we’re finally getting to a place where it’s not bankruptcy. Then again, with another tour coming up soon I’ll probably be homeless again,” she says.
Never mind, Gaga, when Topshop start copying, sorry, “being inspired by” your designs and 13-year-olds start wearing exploding bra outfits, you can rebel by wearing T-shirts and tracky pants. That ought to save a bit.
Lady Gaga loves accessorizing her hair, so it was no surprise that she showed up to a charity event in the UK with a blond flying saucer on her head. While weird, we like the look, and it fits with the Brits’ obsession with flamboyant head gear. Kinda gives “hat hair” new meaning, eh? [Photo: Splash News Online]
We’re not sure who has been wearing the most entertaining outfits lately: Lady Gaga or Sacha Baron Cohen. Lady Gaga showed up at the the 20th Annual MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto wearing the non-sensical combination of an enormous full-lenth fur coat (someone call PETA!) with nothing under it but black lingerie and leather thigh-high boots.
She then took to the stage and allegedly blew the audience away with a high-engery performance of her hits Love Game and Poker Face. Gaga’s set climaxed when her spike-covered bustier shot fire out of its cone-shaped nipples.Madonna, you got served.
