Lady Gaga supports Versace in Paris: does Gaga look like Lana del Rey now?


Death Eaters.

Lady Gaga and Donatella Versace posed together in Paris outside of the Versace Haute Couture Spring/Summer runway show for Paris Fashion Week. Gaga is the current face of Versace – she was styled to look very much like a young Donatella in the current ad campaign. So it’s slightly frightening/off-putting to see Gaga in these photos, because she doesn’t really look like herself OR Donatella. Gaga looks like… Lana del Rey. Right? So that’s Gaga’s new incarnation. She’s going to stunt-queen all over us until we believe that she’s the second coming of Lana del Rey. Well, Lana sells more records than Gaga these days, doesn’t she? That’s what this is about.

I grew up in an era where Gianni Versace could do no wrong, and he flew high after Princess Diana and all of the supermodels wore Versace religiously. The House of Versace is no longer like that – I don’t remember when a major royal figure wore Versace, do you? Maybe some of the Spanish royals or Queen Rania, but it’s been a long time since the British royals wore Versace. So it’s interesting that the whole “dressing royalty” issue came up when Donatella recently spoke with Oxford University students. When asked about potentially dressing the Queen, she said: “The Queen can do whatever she wants. But I would dress her in black. She (the Queen) is rock and roll – I’m not joking! And she is the most fashionable person.”

    Gaga looks very pretty and unlike her usual crazy, attention-seeking self here, I like it.

  2. sqs says:

    Donatella is NSFL at 8:00 a.m.

    Good grief.

  3. Anna says:

    My first thought was, really overdone (made-up) Ashlee Simpson.

    • blue marie says:

      you are so right!

    • snakecharmer says:

      way more ashlee simpson styled well than lana del rey

      • Decloo says:

        I’m betting they all used the same plastic surgeon. I was at my son’s sporting event last week and I missed most of the game because I was so fixated on the plastic surgery on display. Clearly the mother’s all shared the same surgeon because they all had the exact same nose job.

      The first pic looks like Donatella is taking Gaga’s heart out. Yes, I watch too much of Once Upon a Time.

  5. JessicaC says:

    Donatella is a moron, the Queen only wears black when she’s in mourning.

    • Tulip Garden says:

      Well Stephanie Germotta (I hope I got that right) isn’t all that smart herself. She overplayed her hand early on and is busy reaping the benefits of such a ridiculous amount of overexposure and nausea-inducing prattle about her “art”.
      So STFU, Germotta, cause while you annoy the shite out of me, I actually think that you are talented. I would at least listen to your music if you worked a little harder on it like you did early on with the proviso that you keep your “persona” and your statements to yourself. That just my opinion and advice.

  6. Patricia says:

    Gaga does look better than usual but she only wishes she was as pretty as Lana. Yes Lana may have had a little lip pumping and for some reason people act like its a felony, but Lana is a beautiful girl and there’s no denying it. So yeah, gaga wishes.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      Well, to each their own. I’ve always found Lady Gaga extremely pretty, but Lana’s face looks a bit misshapen to me. They’re both beautiful, of course, but Lana’s beauty doesn’t really do it for me.

  7. QQ says:

    I think THIS time is makeup But that aside some weird shit has been going on with Gaga’s face these past few, Like in SNL?!?? It was extremely distracting

  8. Kiddo says:

    Her Majesty, the Queen, Official Pest Peeve list, edit and addendum:

    54. People who use my name to garner attention
    55. Black clothing
    56 Not enough liquor to keep the confounding cubes from clinking. Pour it like your life depends on it, James, fwa fwa. Leave out the round cubes, just put the royal gin in the freezer next time.

  9. Stef Leppard says:

    What’s the point of so drastically changing your looks that no one recognizes you? Gaga, have you learned nothing from Jennifer Grey? If I hadn’t been told this was Gaga I would never have guessed it.

  10. Tania says:

    Nose job. Blatant.

    • Applapoom says:

      I thought chin implant because I have always thought she has a weak chin and she doesn’t here.

      She does look good though? But I don’t recognise her

      • GByeGirl says:

        Yeah, I think that she had nose job, chin implant and some various fillers. Maybe a brow lift as well?

  11. Aussie girl says:

    I going to take a wild guess and say that theses two would have shared some coke before hand. And I’m not talking the stuff in a can!

  12. Kali says:

    She looks like a not entirely cracked out human and, dare I say it, slightly pretty. Chalk up a win for Gaga.

    • Nicolette says:

      Agree. I think she looks great, and for once she doesn’t have some ridiculous outfit on matched with some crazy ass makeup. She looks different, a little work done maybe?

  13. Lempicka says:

    Lucius Malfoy fan club.

  14. Boodiba says:

    She looks better than she ever has.

  15. Jayna says:

    I think she looks fantastic here.

    I thought she copied Lana back a year ago or so when she went to a long, cinammon brown hair color when Lana had her hair that color, and Lana changed to dark right about then. I thought it was blatant copying because she also got her lips done right around that time.

  16. lady mary. says:

    her “orthopedic” surgeon(ahem ahem hip surgery) is the best plastic surgeon in the entire hollywood

    • Vita says:

      Haha! Wink wink! I love her look here but her styling isn’t the only thing going through a transformation. Her face is unrecognizable, especially compared to her pics from before she became “Gaga”. Did she get a nose job? It looked fairly large from my recollection of SNL and it looks a lot quainter here.

  17. bamster says:

    looks like a Sorceress costume, but better than usual for Gaga.

  18. some bitch says:

    Coke buddies.

    Gag’s had a LOT of plastic surgery. Hip issues, I bet.

  19. Bianca says:

    It makes me sad that Donatella Versace does not have ONE honest friend who cares enough for her to tell her that she looks like Voldemort’s scariest nightmare. How does one end up looking like THAT?

    • Dani2 says:

      Girl, she looks SO f-cking scary. She’s the poster child for “plastic surgery gone wrong”. She wasn’t exactly beautiful before but she looks like something straight out of some horror movie.

  20. OriginallyBlue says:

    I like the dress.

  21. Hannah says:

    She looks like Lana how, exactly?

  22. CaribbeanLaura says:

    I actually kinda like the look. Not for anywhere irl but she looks dramatic and pretty. But she has like a totally different nose right?

  23. Becks says:

    Gaga got a nose job! It’s very obvious. Although I have to say, she looks better. I also like her soft makeup.

  24. Shopperetta says:

    Lady Gaga is always in search of a new identity. She does not know how to be herself.

  25. Renee says:

    To all the Canadians out there, doesn’t the one picture where Gaga is in profile look like Leah Miller, the old Much Music veejay? Before her own (Leah’s) plastic surgery, of course.

  26. themummy says:

    NO ONE will EVER convince me Gaga hasn’t had a whole shit-ton of work done to her face. She looks very pretty, but not like herself. Gaga (the original Gaga) was many things, but pretty or attractive wasn’t really among them. Now she looks unrecognizable as her former self. Side by side photos are especially startling. She looks plastic, perfectly beautiful, and all put together (even when she tries to do “dirty” or “tomboy” or whatever…kind of like when the pretty girl dresses up for Halloween as a zombie and yet finagles it so she’s a sexy bloody zombie…ugh) all the time. So much for all that love yourself the way you are/born this way/blah de blah blah blah stuff she built her career on. I’m surprised more people don’t mention it. It’s been especially prominent since she had her “hip surgery” (a surgery which leaves noticeable scars…and yet Gaga has not a single one). Phony.

    “I grew up in an era where Gianni Versace could do no wrong, and he flew high after Princess Diana and all of the supermodels wore Versace religiously.”

    Always found it ironic that he and Diana both died unexpectedly and horribly the same summer. I remember photos of Elton John with Diana at the service for Versace, and then shortly after he pens an iconic version of ‘Candle in the Wind’ to commemorate Diana’s passing. 🙁

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      To further your thought Versace in the 80s/90s used real supermodels – Cindy, Christy, Yasmeen, Helena, Claudia, Nadege, Yasmin Le Bon, Naomi, etc. – in their striking and beautiful ads. Sites like Bellazon and the Fashion Spot are filled with images and threads from that era. Gianni made the supermodels, and fashion was fun. Now it, like pop music, is totally corporate. No way should this hack being repping Versace. Has she ever seen the ads and models from the 80s/90s that repped Versace. She’s not even close. The obsession with today’s celebrity has ruined fashion, the images aren’t memorable because the celebrities are forgettable.
      Born This Way my arse. BTW and improved with lots of work. SHe’s original alright.

      • MissMoody says:

        “the images aren’t memorable because the celebrities are forgettable.”

        THIS! I actually have spent way too much time thinking about this. Like Robert Pattinson for Dior. They really took their time rolling that ad campaign out and I like Sparkles enough but has he done anything of note since that campaign? Lily Allen for Chanel was another head-scratcher for me. She had a moment, that moment has now passed but she’ll always be a Chanel girl! Whether anyone is going to remember that in 50-60 years (or going to want to) is another question.

  28. rep says:

    She looks good because she has on kinda, sorta, normal clothes, but she is almost unrecognizable which to me, is a mistake. Poor thing just doesnt know what to do with her money or her time.

  29. rep says:

    Oh, and Donatella could at least buy a good wig.

  30. LaurieH says:

    I’m over Lady Gaga (and judging from the sales of her last album, so is everyone else). I am also over Donatella Versace. On the plus side, putting the two of them together at least offers a glimpse into how Gaga will look 30 years from now.

  31. Dita says:

    She looks really pretty here.

  32. Ruyana says:

    “Death Eaters”…..hahaha…..yup.

  33. Stoner says:

    Donatella looks like Galliano, mustache and all.

  34. Lola says:

    I like Lady GaGa. She’s like a diamond, many facets to her. Which is great in the world these days. As for Donatella, she’s lived a rich life. Guess that’s why she looks like she does…. argh

  35. Melanie says:

    How can this be the same face from 5 days ago? Bloat? Fillers? I’m so confused….
