So you’re all like…

12 Feb

… ‘oh no, not Gaga again’, and I’m all like ‘oh yeah, here we go again’.

I can’t help it, it’s just that the palette here is SO right.


Lessons: (a) vanishing eyebrows and nails are good; (b) pink hair is doable, especially without eyebrows; (c) burnt orange is hot, but hotter with fuchsia; (d) when doing fashion stunts, chose well the wallpaper; (e) you don’t need jewels; (f) when you’ve got away with a raw meat outfit in front of millions, you can pull the stern look. You’ve got cred.

This may well be, I hear you rant. But what of the shoes? There, my little shrimps:

Hysterical Gallianos (Dior)

You know it’s waaay too late to hold it back.

    wow! love that colour.
    I’m heaps into the no eyebrows thing at the moment – way jealous of all blondes who can do it. Mac was doing “a tartan tale” a little while ago in which an awesome redhead had a touch of light orange eyeshadow put in her disappearing eyebrows mmm it was fantastic.
    Also this is one of the only photos where dark lipstick doesn’t take over the look. I actually think there’s another lesson in that even: “dark lipstick is non-goth when coupled with really bright clothes.”
    I could crap on way more about this photo i mean wallpaper, no jewelry, burnt orange…….
    only i wish the lello in the shoes was baby blue (that’s my conservative side talking) but i do think it would keep the focus on her insaaane makeup and hair job.
    I really enjoyed reading your noses post below also. I have a massive nose but its more wide massive than long massive. I really should be more proud of it.

      I’m into dark shades of lipstick since forever. I wasn’t even aware that one may associate it in a systematic way to goth (maybe black-black lips, and even then…) Well, that’s just me in outer space.
      I think we should really have something like a Nose of Character Appreciation Society. We do 3D! There’s more to human face than penurious nostrils and miser curves!

    also forgot to say how much do these colours remind you of last season’s genius meadham kirchhoff collection?!
    especially the botanical explosion on the runway

    “when you’ve got away with a raw meat outfit in front of millions, you can pull the stern look. You’ve got cred.”

    Nothing to add, just my complete and utter awe & agreement.

    hey thank for all ur nice comments about my blog 🙂 so nice when someone appreciates the vibes.
    Yeah i am a bit hopeless with words… hahaha i actually do really like the dark/black lipstick thing – I really like this chicky’s examples (albeit from 2008):
    I was sort of meaning most girls you see rocking the dark lippy are wearing a combo of black, white or neutrals which often gives the overall look a sort of “sameness”. Wearing brights with the dark lips really gives it a freshness i think, but then what do you expect from gaga…
    p.s. i can’t help but asking what ur fave gaga look is? (you might have already mentioned it elsewhere in ur blog sorry). I cant stop being obsessed with her brit awards 2010 ensemble(s) the textural white on white thing aaaahhhh!!! hair, lace mask, tiered gown, sheer bodysuit shoes etc etc …

    I will have to give two answers.
    First, there’s the meat dress. The reasons are many, and explicited in a post earlier on the blog. But that’s more plastic arts that fashion proper.
    Sartorially, then, I have a complete crush on the 2009 VMA black feathers number. It’s Gaultier at his best, fancy, eccentric, yet not in the least provocative just for the sake of it.
    It’s just classy, in the exciting and outré way you expect from any decent red-carpeteer.
    Plus: feathers, jewelery, lace. All my lady bells are a-tingling.
