Today is such a great day (okay, last night rather) that it should be a holiday.
It has happened!
What has happened? Thom Browne‘s epic (I use that word so scarcely but it truly is) Spring 2014 Collection has finally made a red carpet appearance. And most fitting is that it was worn by none other than: Miss Lady Gaga. Gaga is no stranger to Thom’s intricate, and at times bizarre, designs…but when he presented the collection last September at New York Fashion Week it felt like a true calling out to Gaga. It’s a Gaga dream!
Say what you will about Thom Browne and Lady Gaga, but when you truly look at this article of clothing you cannot deny the fine craftsmanship at play. Yes, it’s like Chanel on crack but Chanel on crack is really just the same awesomeness of Chanel only magnified. Right? 😉
Gaga released the hairnet contained locks of runway styling to a wild and teased look, that’s most definitely one of her signature wigs. She did however keep the pasted and freakish makeup. True to form, she honors the drama.
Is there anything better to wear to accept a coveted award on the day of your latest album’s release than an editorial and theatrical Thom Browne suit? Obviously not. At least if you’re Lady Gaga, and I thank her for being outside of the box enough to keep us guessing. Say what you will about the lady, but she has an appreciation and love for fashion that goes beyond most fashion icons. She pushes the limit to the extreme, creating a spectacle you can’t tear your eyes away from.
Brilliant. Love it! I salute her and her new album. Both the woman and the music are purely original and fantastic. New to this collection? Read my full review on it 🙂
