I wasn’t going to post tonight, but after seeing Lady Gaga’s latest video, “Telephone,” featuring Beyonce, I’m inspired. Lady Gaga manages to thrill and bewilder at the same time, and it’s pretty much all I can do not to prance down the street in fishnets and a bodysuit once I’m done watching her newest short film. One of the reasons I admire Gaga so much is because she manages to blur the line between fetish and fashion…one of the unspoken goals of my own blog. At any rate…if you’ve got the desire (and the funds!) to imitate Ms. Gaga, here are a few places to start.
Lady Gaga loves her fishnets and nobody, absolutely nobody, does fishnets like Wolford. In true Gaga style, these tights are studded with authentic Swarovski crystals. Glam and glittery…yum!
While I’d never wear Coco De Mer’s handcrafted leather cone bra above, I have a feeling Ms. Gaga could own this look. And at $1500, this Madonna-esque brassiere is pretty much for rock stars only.
Most of Lady Gaga’s memorable outfits involve headgear of some kind. While the latex hoods she wore in Bad Romance are a little too extreme to post here, those looking for a taste of the masquerade might enjoy one of these Swarovski crystal masks made by Bo’s Tit Bits and available from Pandora’s Choice.
Corsets and waist cinchers are another Lady Gaga staple, but if you’re not quite ready to enter the world of tightlacing (I know I’m not) why not try this “baby” corset from What Katie Did? Of all the pieces I’m going to share with you here, this is probably the most practical one of the bunch.
If money was no object, I would probably Agent Provocateur’s “Lisha” set…one of the lines from it’s high-end Soiree collection. Something about the combinaton of biker studs and soft leather calls to me…and I’m sure it calls to the Haus of Gaga too.
I should really mention Patrice Catanzaro more on the blog. He specializes in making dresses and lingerie of wet look material, but is starting to dabble in stretch mesh. This skirt is sheer perfection, and reminiscent of a look I’ve seen several times in Gaga’s videos.
You can’t talk about the Gaga without talking about latex, and Lady Gaga buys her rubber from some of the finest couturiers in the world, including big names like Atsuko Kudo. Latex isn’t really my “thing” but even I can’t deny the appeal of prettily printed pieces like this one.
This image, taken from latex designer High Gloss Dolls was the impetus for this entire post. I saw it and instantly wondered if Lady Gaga owned it…and if I’d look as good as she would in it. Of all the outfits in this article, this one screams Gaga the most.
We’ll round out our tour of Gaga-land with the one piece of lingerie I promised to never leave behind…stockings. Latex stockings. I actually own a pair of backseam latex “nylons,” and now, more than ever, I’m itching to wear them. Better hurry before it gets warm again.
