Whether you love her or hate her Lady Gaga is an international superstar selling millions of records world wide and generally leaving heads turned where ever she goes. My first encounter with Lady Gaga was when I first heard her single just dance. I had stumbled upon it either via youtube or on some other website and it was one of those songs that as soon as I heard it I knew it was going to be huge, you just knew it was going to be one of those party girl anthems. While her music is not really to my personal taste there is no denying that she causes a stir with what she wears.
I was thinking about her as a style icon as she doesn’t immediately jump to mind when you conjure up the image of someone stylish. I’d usually think of people like Alexa Chung or perhaps Cheryl Cole, someone that is always dressed perfectly for the occasion. Lady Gaga doesn’t really fit into that mould, her outfits, as amazing as they are can sometimes just be out and out strange.
But when I think about it a little deeper and delve past my own stereotypes of what makes a ‘style icon’ you can actually see how she fits. Lady Gaga is the epitome of one expressing themselves through style. She doesn’t really give a damn about what people think of her she goes out wearing whatever she wants whether that be a Giorgio Armani number from her latest tour or latex hot pants and 6 inch killer heels.
She regarded the late great Alexander McQueen as a personal friend and Giorgio Armani describes her as a “modern fashion phenomenon” but we can all learn from this style icon. How often have you been reluctant to buy or wear something because of what your friends may say or simply what people may think. I know I can hold my hand up to that, we should all take a leaf out of Lady Gaga’s book and wear what we want, when we want, after all our style is about our expression and no body else’s.
