Lady Gaga’s Concert Costumes: Live, Raw Footage!

gaga1 jpg
When I walked up to my family’s tree this past December 25th and saw Lady Gaga tickets clipped to its branches, I thought there had been a Christmas miracle. It turned out the miracle was my mother waiting on Ticketmaster’s busy line for 20 minutes before giving up and calling a ticket broker. Either way, the countdown for January 23rd began, and the Gaga made every moment of scratching off days on my calendar worth it. Besides the fact that the girl was really funny (she cursed up a storm and asked the audience to flash her several times) and her voice was amazing, I couldn’t tear my eyes away from her costumes. I knew the outfits would be fabulous, but she blew me away. Here’s a sartorial play-by-play of the show.

Let’s begin with this mirror-ball number. High-waisted white pants and a reflective bra would have been diva enough, but with the added shoulder accessory, she was in business.

The Fashion Peacekeepers: Ashley Olsen’s Gothic Chic

Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?

Fashion police, show us your badges. Ashley Olsen showed up to the Art of Elysium Gala in Los Angeles in this stunning Alexander McQueen gown and Manolo Blahnik heels. While the “experts” on the Fashion Police at E! consider this ultra bang on-trend look a fashion faux pas, we think she looks devilishly chic. Dark, raspberry lips are so in right now, and look especially fresh and elegant when paired with peachy-nude frocks. We think she hit the mark in this getup. Keep reading »

Kanye West has done the impossible: made himself look like a bigger tool than we already thought he was. Mr. West and on-again girlfriend Amber Rose wore these tack-tastic fur frocks to a Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris. Never mind the fact that she looks like Chewbacca’s first cousin, he needs to meet the inside of a bucket of red paint. Eh, looks like Taylor Swift’s getting the last laugh.

I Dressed Like Stereotypical Male Fantasies And Lived To Tell The Tale

Among the plethora of relationship self-help books that line an entire shelf of my best friend’s apartment sits The Manual ($10.04 at Amazon). After scanning the table of contents and sifting through the pages, I came across one piece of advice that I had to take a second look at. It said, “Dress to men’s fantasies, and do it subtly.” Could this be the reason I’m still single? Because I don’t look like a naughty librarian or a French maid when I go out? I decided to put this highly ridiculous hypothesis to the test. I spent five nights in adult dress-up, playing to every guy’s porn-worthy pipe dreams. Why? Well, why the hell not?

Sit On It

Interior designer Nata Janberidze was inspired by the sight of her jacket on the back of her chair at a dinner table. We’ve seen our coats in similar positions at restaurants and never thought about adding a dress, necklace, and broach to the mix. But why not? [FocusOnStyle.com] Keep reading »

New Zealand Flight Attendants Not So Pretty In Pink

Air New Zealand is redefining the term “high fashion.” This pink Trelise Cooper frock will be pushing beverage carts past patrons in 2011. Offended by what some are referring to as the “Barbie uniform,” there has been sharp opposition to the dress. We think any demeaning qualities the design may inspire is overshadowed by the fact that the dress itself is just plain ugly. But alas, pink has, for better or worse, long been a flight attendant staple since the days when they were called stewardesses. Check out more bubblegum flight attendant fashions after the jump.
