Lady Gaga wears Versace & awful wiglets at the Oscars: budget or not that bad?


Confession: I completely missed seeing Lady Gaga on the red carpet last night and I guess I missed any cutaways to her in the audience (??), so this is my first time seeing her. OH. MY. GOD. What is going on with her? Her face looks… well, she was NOT born this way. No one is born with that amount of Botox and fillers. And no one is born with the worst, the trashiest wigs out there. Good lord, this is just…there are no words.

Um, why was Gaga even there? Did I miss that too? She wasn’t nominated for anything, she didn’t perform. I guess she was just there for DRAMA. Because Gaga is a legend in her own mind. Anyway, Gaga wore Versace to the Oscars and then she switched dresses (still Versace) for the after parties. She attended the Elton John party and the Vanity Fair party.

So, what was going on with her? Was it just awful makeup? Botox? Fillers? Bad wigs? An unholy combination of all of the above? Even John Travolta is looking at her thinking, “Girl, fix your wig game. You disgust me.”

Oh, and the dresses are bad too. I don’t understand why the combination of Versace + Gaga is so… boring and budget? It made sense on paper, but in execution, it’s just so blah and cheap-looking.

    Doesn’t it seem like a downgrade when she is just walking the red carpet for the sake of walking the red carpet?

    • Kelly says:

      That wig is painful to look at. and what are those blotches on her skin?

      • Smith says:

        Right? Did she just apply tanner to her armpits? And what’s with the weird alien-shaped wig and the hairline glue, and the newly-shaped botox face and that eyebrow?? What am I looking at here??

        And what happened to Donatella? I know how she looks, I’ve seen her many times and wouldn’t even comment but come on …what. the. f*ck?? This is just beyond. Her people should really keep her home. Maybe it’s just the camera angle?

        Dear God, please let it be the camera angle.

      • Jarredsgirl says:

        Donatella looks like she is on drugs. Major. She is not even trying to hide it, she is a strung out mess.

  2. Aria says:

    She’s morphing herself into Donatella.

    • capepopsie says:

      Yeah, scary! 🙁

      • Sassy says:

        Donatella looks like she has been enbalmed. Gaga – a Long Island housewife going to the countryclub dance back in the sixties. Gaga could use some major orthondontia as well. Awful, awful – downright scary with the two of them together.

    • Amelia says:

      Glad I’m not alone in thinking that!
      Particularly the bottom picture – the botox, the fried hair. . .

      • FingerBinger says:

        IDK if her hair is fried. That looks like a lace front wig.

      • V4Real says:

        Yes it’s a horrible lace front weave. It looks like she did it herself. She needs to hire Beyonce’s hair stylist, at least Bey’s lace fronts looks good and usually natural.

        Gaga and Donatella are looking rather motherish and daughterish in these photos.

    • Kiddo says:

      I was going to say ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots in the side by side.

    • Hiddles forever says:

      I know! Donatella seems a vampire who got a bad dose of Botox instead of Blood…. Oh my God…

      • Decloo says:

        That side by side photo of Gaga and Donatella is just a freak show. That’s the kind of thing you show to children to scare them to death. I actually shuddered.

    • Tessy says:

      My thought exactly, Donatella’s mini me.

  3. aims says:

    Her dresses look like bad pageant wear. Her “hair” looks fake and itchy. Overall an improvement. She could had dressed up like an egg or something.

  4. SonjaMarmeladova says:

    She looked bad. But she looked better than usual, no?

  5. QQ says:

    What is wrong with her face?? Can that just be fillers? A bad nose job? Why are her brows like that ? Jesus christ! Her face has been super distracting to me from way back on that SNL show *shudders*

    • Lily says:

      I will never understand why young ppl get fillers. What’s the point are they actively trying to get the plastic look?

    • lylaooo says:

      and whats wrong with her boobs ??? the look weird!!

      • Melanie says:

        YES!! The boobs!! I know everyone is distracted by the bad wig and scary face, but WTF with those boobs? Is it bad body makeup? Or stretch marks? Or reflection from the dress? I can’t stop staring, it’s more distracting to me than her face.

      • Patata says:

        Stretch marks

  6. Lucy2 says:

    Gaga looks terrible, as does the ghost of Dontella past next to her. Yikes.

  7. Dara says:

    This is terrible, but Donatella Versace has the face for Horror Films.

  8. len says:

    she’s dug her own grave by always being so over the top. She can never just wear a boring dress and still be interesting because she herself is interesting.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      It’s a shame though, because I think underneath it all she really is an interesting person with her own perspective on life. She’s lost her way, in her own strange way, by placing the emphasis on her theatrical look, just like many starlets come to overemphasize their appearances. I hope she finds her way back.

      • GGGlam says:

        Ehh, I am inclined to disagree. I think the whole reason why she has to resort to such lavish costumes and performances is because she has no personality of her own. She comes across as quite dull and self-interested in her interviews, not to mention the majority of her music is lacking in any personality beyond her obnoxious facade.

  9. blue marie says:

    The second dress isn’t bad, but man she is f-king with her face hard, she needs to stop. What is up with her forehead? Is that just a bad wig-line?

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      It looks like she is taping her face and hiding the tape with the wigs. It makes her look like a rodent.

  10. Shijel says:

    What. The. Sh*t. And it’s too damn bad because I used to think that she had an interesting face.

  11. Lucybelle says:

    I didn’t even know she was there! But I was flipping between this and the Amazing Race so maybe I missed her. I like that the dresses weren’t completely out there and “look at me!” like they usually are. But dear heavens that wig is so bad! I mean it’s no secret she wears wigs but you would think they would try to make them look good, and not like a high school drama department.
    Donatella’s face looks like a melting candle. *shudder*

  12. God–THAT HAIR. It is actively bad.

    If I can tell that you’re wearing a wig–then you know it’s bad. I still can’t spot weaves. That looks CHEAP. And her face looks f’d up too.

  13. Dani says:

    She looks more like Donatella Versace than Donatella Versace does.

  14. queenfreddiemercury says:

    She looks awful. Her face and her in blank in her eyes. I thought thought the same thing why is she there?

  15. serena says:

    Well, I think both the dresses were fantastic it’s just her.. I don’t know fillers, make-up, hair/wig.. all of that, that is ‘off’.

  16. Jaded says:

    Lady Gaga….you’ve managed to hustle yourself into fame and fortune with very little appreciable talent other than a pathological obsession to attract attention to yourself by any means possible. This does not translate into you being a celebrity worthy of showing up at the Oscars. Go away, we’ve all reached Gaga saturation point.

    • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

      Yes, and notice no one even talks about her “music” What happened to that piece of forgettable crap Artprop? Who cares, I’m listening to Tito Puentes and SRV. She really is desperately pathetic at this point.
      And that pic with Donatella I can’t believe that no one has said they look like Porn Stars – and these are supposed to be classy events? Laugh my arse off.

    • GGGlam says:


  17. foxyw says:

    Donatella Versace looks like she eats brains. Like a zombie. Or like a reaper. I don’t know. But it’s pretty bad. And undead.

  18. Jenna says:

    It’s weird – if you redact that HORRIBLE wig thingy and the weird faces she kept pulling, the completely pointless scarf….

    basically cut off everything from the photo above the collarbone or even better, put the dress on just about anyone else, it would be one of my favorite dresses of the night. The embroidery all over was really lovely, the dress shimmered, it outside of the whole Gaga-ishness that was poured into it is stunning. But once you put Stephi in… it all goes out the window. As for the 2nd dress – you think Gaga stopped at any point in the evening, saw a reflection of herself and Donatella and had a horrible moment ala Ghost of Christmas Future? She’s bound and determined to morph into DV, but as to WHY anyone would WANT to… I have no clue.

  19. Paige says:

    Her dress is gorgeous. The weave not so much. Why is the story so over the top? It’s the same with every Lady Gaga story.

  20. Dotty says:

    In the second dress it looks like she’s doing the Kim K expression – vacant.

  21. Jayna says:

    Botox and fillers are not your friend, Gaga. You said you gave up fillers after becoming addicted to them. I guess not.

  22. M.A.F. says:

    what is going on w/her skin color? People need to stop with the spray tan and bronzer. It looks terrible. If you are pale, embrace it already.

  23. Dragonlady Sakura says:

    When John Travolta’s wig looks better than yours, you need to sit the hell down and reevaluate your life!

  24. Jayna says:

    Can someone tell me what Taylor sees in her? He’s handsome, talented, on a hit TV show. On her hiatus when she had the hip surgery, I assumed they were having some nice down time aside from have to recuperate from the surgery, and then she goes and says she was drugged out the whole time, a real mess, and hitting rock bottom. Yet Taylor still sticks with her. He isn’t after her for the fame. He stays very lowkey about their relationship.

  25. M says:

    One way to look good, stand next to Donatella! Wowza

  26. klaas says:

    Ikea+gaga make more sense than versace+gaga.

  27. Liberty says:

    Every so often, people cross over into a territory where I actively feel sorry for them and whoever advises them or “yes man’s” them…..looking at Lady G here, and also Donatella, just, how sad.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I feel bad for her too. She needs some friends who care enough to give her the truth, no matter how harsh it might be.

  28. jamrock says:

    She almost make it painful for me to admit that I use to stan her hard but now she is like a joke i cant believe it.

  29. Buffoon says:

    Gaga’s love of huge veneers and lip fillers has distorted her face completely. I guess this is how it started for all those jocelyn-wildensteins out there. Baby steps.

  30. narwhalrus says:

    Some of these photos look like she has on some body makeup that’s rubbing off…not a good look

  31. Ice Queen says:

    I find Versace’s looks to be very cheap looking and classless and severely overrated (that is after Donatella took over). So to see someone who looks cheap and classless and severely overrated in Versace’s designs is not so weird to me.

  32. Lucy says:

    Why was she even there?

  33. LahdidahBaby says:

    Gaga is looking more and more like George Washington.

  34. Nina says:

    I like the dresses. They’re distinctly Gaga, but still tasteful and pretty. That’s about all I like.

    I want to root for Gaga again. I want her to do a stripped down acoustic album or something, I don’t know. She does have a lot of talent, but over the years she’s just drowned herself out in wackiness.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree. I would love to hear a stripped down album and see a phase where she goes more “normal”. All of this extra effort, it only makes her look worse.

  35. SnarkGirl says:

    I like the dresses, it’s the styling that’s all off.

    Her make up is terrible! Did she do it herself? In a closet? At midnight? Wrong colours for her skin, and wrong colours for the dresses. Awful, awful, awful.

    The hair is, to me, tied for awfulness with the make up. It looks so cheap & half-assed. Surely this woman has enough money to buy a decent wig/let.

    I agree with the face thing, she seems like she is deliberately trying to morph into Donatella. Big mistake. I’m sure even Donatella doesn’t want to look like Donatella. Back away from the botox/fillers/surgery/wtf-ery of your face Gaga!

  36. Vampi says:

    It looks like her forehead is about to give birth to….something. I want my mommy!!! (sees Donatella)… Arrrrggghh! *runs to corner, gets in fetal position and begins rocking back and forth* Mommmyyyyy!!!!

  37. MinnFinn says:

    Judging by these pics I found, I’d say Donatella has had loads of plastic surgery except her nose which is odd to me. Anyone know if her nose is beyond repair because of say cocaine?

  38. AmandaPanda says:

    When I saw the top photo I thought “what on earth has tori spelling done to herself?!”

    But it’s gaga. Oh dear. Poor lady – would like to see her find her mojo again. She looks actively pissed off in some of those pose photos – she knows nobody cares anymore.

  39. Carrie says:

    Oh god when I saw the pictures as thumbnails they didn’t look -that- bad and I was like ‘i dont think she looks too awful’ then I opened them. AWFUL lace fronts, terrible makeup (if someone did that to her and it’s not something she did herself, FIRE THEM NOW.)

    As for Donatella….I literally can’t.

  40. Tiffany :) says:

    The dresses are fine, but WHY does she wear such obvious wigs with them? She needs to blend it more or something, the line at her hairline is so distracting.

    I wish she would just embrace a natural look. I think she has talent, she needs to be secure with that!

  41. lucy says:

    What in the he** was GagHag doing at the Oscars? Just wanted to show off her nasty facelift?

  42. lili says:

    gaga should lure her original stylists back by giving them least three quarters of her fortune, seems like they’re pretty much the ones who got her where she is, or, was….

  43. agag says:

    what’s those marks on her breasts?
