Lady Gaga’s full-length latex gown as airport daywear: thoughts?


I think we’ve established at this point that Lady Gaga A) Tries way too hard and B) Is committed to these dumb costumes-as-daily-wear for the foreseeable future. We can mutter “dumb famewhore” and “unoriginal” and “Madonna did that” until we’re blue in the face, because at the end of the day, Gaga isn’t going to stop with this junk until… I don’t even know. Until she goes to rehab, maybe. Until the costumes stop working, I guess. So these are photos of Lady Gaga at the Sydney airport earlier (later?) today. Yes, her dress is latex. And that’s some kind of high-fashion beekeeper’s hat, I believe, or perhaps it’s just a floppy straw hat with a cutout? Can you imagine her security pat-down? Cheers, Gaga.


Other Gaga news… she’s just announced that she’s going to be “interning” with British hat designer Philip Treacy, who is perhaps best known, at this point, for Princess Beatrice’s toilet bowl hat at the wedding of Will & Kate. Treacy said, “She plans to [do an internship with me]. She’s already visited me. This is what happened: one Monday morning, four burly bodyguards arrived — Lady Gaga’s security team — to check out the security of the building. I looked at them as if to say, ‘What?! Who is going to take a pot shot at Lady Gaga?’ Anyway, she is young, talented and peculiar — which I like.” LMAO at “young, talented and peculiar” – wonderful description.

By the way, in case you wanted to read excerpts from Ian Halperin’s “biography” of Lady Gaga, go here. You know what sucks? I actually believe some of the horrible things about Gaga (like, she’s a cokehead and she has an eating disorder), but because Halperin is claiming them as his own, I now doubt those theories. If Halperin told me the sky was blue, I would KNOW the sky was red.

PS… the photos of Gaga in her veiled pseudo-wedding gear are from her visit to a Sydney nightclub a few nights ago.

    She’s an idiot. She needs to ditch the coke and stupidity and then MAYBE I’ll like her. This isn’t fashion, it’s dumb.

    That being said, I don’t hate her music OR her personality when she interviews.. sometimes.

  2. Cherry Rose says:


    Perhaps if Gaga spent a fraction of her time that’s spent on how she looks and puts it toward making good music, perhaps people would start taking her seriously.

    As it is, image is first for Gaga, and everything else is secondary. She’s not going to last too much longer in the music industry, especially with her idiotic statements and her ever increasing arrogance.

  3. Eve says:

    It used to be mild annoyance, then it became utter annoyance and now it’s full blown hate what I feel for this troll.

    I hope she’ll flat on her face like it happened last year when she pulled the same stunt — walking in her caca outfits at the airport.

    There’s absolutely nothing original about her. Zero. And now she’s repeating herself.

  4. LadyJane says:

    If my 3 year old does or says anything that gets a laugh or attention, she will do it again and again ad nauseum trying to garner the same response. Draw your own conclusions.

  5. Suzie says:

    I think lady gagas dress style is ghoulish. I would say it indicates she has a serious identity crisis. Or is hiding her identity behind a variety of masks. The trouble is, these masks are so hideous.

    She certainly doesnt have any hand-me-downs for other members of her family.

    If she has any clothes to give away, give me a miss. I cant see anyone I know wearing them either.

  6. Can’t she just wear baggy sweats like everyone else? Can you imagine how uncomfortable she must be?? What an idiot. Seriously.

  7. heb says:

    it would have been a lot less annoying without the hat

  8. arock says:

    *full extended, arms over head yawn*
    loved the tea cup, hate the acme issued looney tunes hat. she looks like she got in a car wreck on the set of that roger rabbit movie.

  9. Eve says:

    @ LadyJane:

    Yeah, I know. It’s the same thing with people like her. I try to stay away from her posts but sometimes I feel like I need to take that out of my system. If she ever passed by me wearing that she’d be disappointed because whenever I spot jackasses trying to get my attention I ignore them (which usually pisses them off more than anything).

  10. deva says:

    she’s so michael jackson with the burqa-style.

  11. Sue says:

    At least we don’t have to look at her bra/undies. :)

  12. MsLIb says:

    Wow Kaiser, I never knew there was rehab for adults who choose to dress like idiots! Maybe, now that BF has passed, LG could start her own clinic.
    AND – that hat is definitely a cut out. She probably saw it in a Sidney store window sent in a slave to get it and then cut out the cute window in her limo, stuck it on her head and she was good-to-go.

  13. Samigirl says:

    LadyJane, I was literally comparing her to my own 3 year old in my head while reading this. Good job, sister :)

    She drives me insane. Cosign with everyone else. It’s one thing to be creative, it’s another to literally do stuff for attention. Almost pathetic, because…she doesn’t NEED any more attention.

  14. Jana says:

    Double yawn. She says she’s never out of costume. Sadly, if she would dress normal and then show up at her events in her costumes, it would have more impact. As years go by, no one will care about this; everyone will be over Gaga’s clothing choices day in and day out. Many already are.

  15. CooCooCatchoo says:

    It must be exhausting for her to get dressed. Every outfit’s got to be more avant garde than the last. She has real talent, but the outfits scream insecurity. I think that the fame monster has taken it’s toll on Gaga. Anyone notice that as her outfits get more outrageous, her music gets worse? She’s young, so I’m gonna try and cut her some slack. But the costumes when she’s out in public thing is getting a little boring.

  16. yeah right says:

    How long can she do this crap for???? enough already….. even grace jones looks normal once in a while…

  17. madpoe says:

    how does one market that outfit? Hellraiser (Pinhead) a day at the beach? I mean really, as if being on the plane isn’t uncomfortable enough you’ve gotta wear latex? TSA probably doesn’t even check her b/c they’re either too busy laughing on the floor or terrified of her. I’ll be 60 in less than 30 years and I won’t care about you Gaga. Folks just keep trying to stay relevant even at the expense of their dignity.

  18. Audrey says:

    How did she ever get through security?

  19. says:

    People with real talent don’t need to pull endless stunts to stay relevant.

  20. H.Girlie says:

    Ridicoulous. When a performer has actual talent, they don’t need schtick like this..

  21. J O'C says:

    Latex? Poor thing. She must have smelled like a swamp when she took it off.

  22. Laura says:

    Wow, I, uh… I actually like the hat. A lot…

  23. NoFrank says:

    You have to admire someone who is willing to be that uncomfortable, all the time, to make a point. I just wish I knew what point she was trying to make, is all.

    @LadyJane & Samigirl: I have thought the same thing about Gaga for a long time. When my boys were little they’d run one thing into the ground if you laughed or gave them a cookie. Maybe we should give her a cookie?

  24. Nina says:

    Doesn’t the girl ever have any desire to just kick it in a pair of jeans and a tank top? That dress must be killer in the summer heat.

  25. Eve says:

    @ NoFrank:

    You have to admire someone who is willing to be that uncomfortable, all the time, to make a point.

    Not to disagree with you or try to prove you wrong. But I happen to think the exact opposite of that.

    I despise a person who is willing to or needs to dress in a certain just to make a point. Her points (if she has any because I don’t think she does) should rely on her original talent and actually pertinent thoughts. She has neither of the two.

  26. ladybert62 says:

    Peculiar? Perfect description. That latex thing must be incredibly hot. I think she has reached the extreme of whatever fashion statement she is trying to make – it must be difficult to be this bizarre 24/7 and must cause a great deal of mental stress for her.

  27. Tierra says:

    ITA with Suzie,

    I think she hides her real self behind these insane get-ups. I was never a fan but she just looks pathetic with all these attention getting outfits and stunts. I hope she’s done soon.

  28. Amy says:

    Ugh… I’m kind of over Gaga. Her music, while fun to dance to and sing, is not all that original. She can sing and she is great with certain instruments, but I wish she would focus more on her music than on the constant fashion show she tries to “entertain” us with. It’s boring.

  29. Novaraen says:

    She must sit around coked out of her mind and come up with these ridiculous outfits. All this fashion isn’t helping her music one iota.

  30. RHONYC says:

    oh you guys!

    what do you have against Gaga’s weight loss goals???

    ‘clearly’ she wants to shed some poundage while traveling & had her ‘Haus’ design a sauna suit to do the trick. :lol:

  31. Riana says:

    I think Kaiser said it best, it’s just NOT going to stop and the energy expended commenting on her outfits….so much wasted energy it literally exhausts me to think of it.

    So long as Gaga is being rewarded for the loony outfits (which she is) she’ll do it to death.

    So I think, officially, its time to start ignoring Lady Gaga. Music is one thing (which kind of sucks noe) but all this…we banded together after 9/11 surely we can come together for this.

  32. original kate says:

    reminds me of something edina would wear on “abfab” … tragic.

  33. MarenGermany says:

    I wish she would sit down, take a few deep breaths and say “Stefanie, I am Stefanie, I am Stefanie.” again and again until her identity crisis fades away.

    I wish I could love this very talented woman, but her god-complex, arrogance, and insufferable personality make it impossible for me.

  34. Beatrix says:

    Original Katie, I was thinking the same thing!

    I love the dress, but wouldn’t wear it in the summer or during the day.
    The hat is a monstrosity, as is her make up.

  35. Cleo says:

    She could sell an affordable version of the hat to housewives in China. I’d wear that instead of a hijab.

  36. Truthful says:

    This is not about art–she has some serious issues and drugs is just one of them..

    I try NOT to laugh at her, but she is making it impossible.

  37. Maritza says:

    Does this woman own normal clothes? I mean really why doesn’t she leave those costumes just for her performances? I find it a waste just to walk around an airport, these ugly outfits must cost a lot of money just to wear once.

  38. Deven says:

    I’m glad to read I’m in the majority on this poor schlep. Did anyone ever care how she looked? She needs to live in the back of a resale shop, endlessly trying on things no one else would ever want to wear, and keep out of our sight!

  39. Jingo Jango says:

    This is great comedy.

  40. Sloane Wyatt says:

    So over her.

    She’s a famewhore who recently got egged at a nightclub for earlier rolling out in a wheelchair as one of her concert costumes. Disgusting.

  41. Belle Epoch says:

    After seeing the magnificent Tilda Swinton, this is just childish.

  42. jover says:

    Cosign with everyone re Eve’s comment – she has no point to this except boredom and vacuity. WHen you’re the sum of your handlers/label/image makers you have no substance no depth. SHe’s a shallow mediocre narcissist; she represents everything that’s wrong with the industry starting with using music to exult in fame and attention; Funny i was driving the other day punched in pandora and duran duran from the 80s and got a two hour playlist of 80s techno electro pop way better and more enjoyable that Lady xerox’s bs. Glad to see more people are turning on this label created sham.

  43. jayem says:

    You guys are funny. So, Tilda Swinton and Helena Bonham Carter are awesome and eccentric, but Lady Gaga is a tiresome wannabe?? I like them all for their “peculiarity” and I really like her music. She’s crafted a persona and she sticks to it. I’m not sure why it inspires such vitriol. But, I admit I feel the same way about Rhianna (as in she annoys the hell out of me), so to each their own.

  44. fizXgirl314 says:

    haha I always wonder how she can keep a straight face.

  45. Anonymous says:

    I think I see my Halloween costume in one of these pics! Thanks!

  46. gg says:

    I love the lime sherbet hair, but now she’s from LIDDSVILLE! AHAAAAAAAH!

  47. Jennifer says:

    @Nina about the heat……….she has just been in Sydney,we are in the grip of the coldest winter in a long long time she would be welcoming the warmth even if she looks so silly in those things :D

  48. Ashley says:

    Is this her take on a burka? If this was some artsy-fartsy take on women in Muslim society I might like it, but something tells me it’s not that intelligent.

  49. Laura says:

    I’m really over her. If she wants to shock us now, she should strut around in jeans and a tee.

  50. Well I am glad at least to see someone wearing Iris Van Herpen! It’s about time.

  51. Anthony says:

    At least the stuff that she wears will be remembered. Call her crazy, but unlike the people who just wear tee shirts and sweat pants, she is going down in history. I personally think that what she is wearing is beautiful. Also, those rude things that were written about her were completely unnecessary. Gaga is a very loving person and she would never say things like this about any of you. I want you to think about that the next time you insult her personality. Say what you want about her fashion (I think she has an amazing sense of style) but she is a good person who donates a crap load of money to charity and spends a ton of time with her fans.

  52. Kezia says:

    Philip Treacey the hat designer is Irish not British kaiser, sort it out!;)

  53. CeeCee says:

    sweaty Betty in latex. I bet she smells and gets regular candida infections.

  54. original kate says:

    “So, Tilda Swinton and Helena Bonham Carter are awesome and eccentric, but Lady Gaga is a tiresome wannabe??”

    @ jayem: tilda and HBC are more than just “personas” – they actually have talent. also, neither of them dress in full on costumes like extras from a marilyn manson video. gaga is just totally tiresome and unoriginal – even the wheelchair costume she unveiled as one of her onstage “personas” is not her own idea – bette midler did it decades ago.

  55. Eve says:

    I was going to answer that but Original Kate (# 59) beat me to it.

    This is what Lady Gaga would dress normally if she wasn’t a product of assistants and someone else’s ideas:

  56. wendy says:

    haha love her hat!
    and no need to be angry and hateful over gaga people,
    she is just having fun and being expressive, plus she is all about love and acceptance.
    And lets just say Madonna didn’t do super weird stuff like she does. She is her own creation. Sure she has been inspired by others, but who hasn’t? Remember when Madonna did Marilyn Monroe??
    And to say she is not talented is so silly. She has been playing the piano since she was 3. Not a lot of people can say that.
    stop being so negative.

  57. Cindy says:

    What is the deal with all the weird clothing? It’s horrible. I just think about Poker Face, she was so unusul, but now she’s a caricature of what she started out to be. How can wearing nothing sometimes to dressing like totally bizarre have to do with anything? That’s not fashion it’s puke. I don’t understand her anymore. I liked the GaGa who first started out, before she got famous. Do you know yourself anymore GaGa?
