During a recent interview with Flare magazine, Lady GaGa was asked when she would be launching her own (undoubtedly bizarre but still oh so fabulous) clothing line. The vivacious singer responded, “At some point, I will. Right now, I’m more concerned with using my
fame to promote young designers such as Gary Card, an artist who
designed a piece I used on stage.” When the magazine pressed the singer—of whom they stated "is changing the world one sequin at a time—why she thinks her adoring public would love to get their hands on a piece of her headline-making style, the New York native simply said, “There hasn’t been a commercial artist lately that has embodied avant-garde and couture so insistently as myself.” Agreed.
Throughout the interview, Lady GaGa, originally named Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, touched on the fashion evolution she underwent from 23 year old New Yorker to global style sensation that wowed her audiences with extravagant face masks, hairpieces, and—of course—no pants. “I went through periods where I was very sexy, then I became a hippie
girl with ripped jeans and then went into a leopard tights and leotards
phase… which I’m still in,” she laughs quietly. “Fashion saved my
life,” she later admits. “When I was young, I was laughed at in school
because I dressed dramatically.” Well, GaGa definitely has the last laugh now as the singer has raked in millions from her music and arguably set the bar for cutting edge fashion of the future.
The current fashion world seems to agree as they honored the pop artist with the Stylemaker Trophy at the Accessories Council's annual ACE awards yesterday. Marc Jacobs himself awarded the velvet and lace-encrusted GaGa with the accolade. And despite her penchant for covering her face with masks, veils, and an assortment of other facial concealments, MAC cosmetics has picked GaGa as a face for their upcoming AIDS Fund campaign, along with Cyndi Lauper. The cosmetics company plans to release a Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick and a Viva Glam Cyndi Lipstick for $14 each, with all proceeds going to the M.A.C. AIDS Fund. The lipwear lines will drop on March 18th. Clothing line or not, the GaGa force is still very high in demand.
