Gaga/McQueen Fabulousness

I am loving the video for Lady Gaga’s newest single “Bad Romance.” It’s so risquè, edgy and fabulous. Lady Gaga is known for her avant garde music videos and style; “Bad Romance” most definitely does not dissapoint. I also happen to love Alexander McQueen’s extravagant designs from his Spring 2010 runway show, where a demo of the song premiered. So of course, the video is filled with McQueen/Gaga fabulousness. You could almost make a drinking game out of spotting the McQueen.

The video starts with Gaga in the gorgeous gold dress, which I personally think fits and looks better on her than the model. Maybe it’s the hair?

 

She wears the curvy, bone-like, ridculously tall platforms with her infamous plastic dress, and again in black at the very end of the video.

Around the middle she struts in head to toe McQueen. Well, I don’t think “strut” is exactly the word for how one would walk in McQueen’s lobster claw shoes. I think “stumble” is a tad more appropriate. But the video is absolutely fabulous nonetheless.

 So, did I miss anything?

Runway Trend: Temporary Tattoos

The most unlikely of trends has popped up on several Fashion Week runways: tattoos. It started at Rodarte, with their futuristic tribal sleeves, half sleeves and neck tattoos.

At Chanel, there were pretty black and white tattoos that looked like jewelry.

There was more of a “prison tat” feel going at Jean Paul Gaultier. The models names were stenciled on various parts of their body.

Could this trend take off? Will temporary tattoos start popping up in stores next Spring? I think it’s an interesting new twist, I’d probably try something like tattoos at Chanel. It’s a very pretty, artistic addition to an outfit. So, was this just a runway trend, or will some of us be slapping on temporary tattoo sleeves in the near future?
