I've just seen this German video on the outfits of Lady GaGa, whose music I'm only barely familiar with and thoroughly unimpressed with. Also the bits of her speaking that you can hear under the German translation ("We believe in vanity," "I dress like this all the time") don't make me want to know her. But I am super happy that she wears the craziest stuff from the runways. I think it's her duty. Like when Beyonce wore the Balenciaga robot gear. Someone had to do it. For this reason I hope her career is long and resistant to de-glam-ination. The video gives a nice little montage. I hope she dresses like this to go to the grocery store, but I rather doubt she ever goes to the grocery store.
