Ditching signature Gaga style — crazy footwear, hats and headpieces, serious makeup, and over-the-top costumes — the pop singer takes the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan in character as a Sicilian man. Nick Knight shot Lady Gaga doing her best "Jo Calderone" impersonation, a man who prefers grease-stained tees and cigarettes over bubbles, lace, and the usual Gaga get-ups. The stripped-down, androgynous Gaga is a stretch from what we're used to seeing, but even as a man, Gaga pulls it off. So, what do you think — freaky or fabulous?
Jewelry with the eye motif is often used for protection from the proverbial evil eye. But these Ambush Eye Got Ballz Rings ($251 each) will provide protection on another level. Just check out those massive red bloodshot veins — they're sure to freak out any passerby! Leave it to Lady Gaga to rock it out hard-core. Price aside, are these double eyeball rings freaky or fabulous?
Last night, Lady Gaga traded in her typically outrageous wardrobe — lace, masks, leotards, hats, you know — for menswear. But the swap was just as alluring. Appearing as a guest on Larry King to discuss her thoughts on "don't ask, don't tell," the performer adopted the same signature style of the host — suspenders, specs, and all. Pictured alongside Larry King, the button-down, tie, sunglasses, and even slicked-back hair make the singer a dead-ringer for the veteran interviewer. What's your take on Gaga's costume du jour — freaky or fabulous?
In a spread for Tush Magazine, transsexual icon Amanda Lepore strikes a supermodel pose — no, that's not actually Naomi, but did she have you fooled? For the spread titled "She's Them All," Lepore mimics supermodel greats Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Karen Elson, and Nadja Auermann — and does it with gusto. These are pretty perfected and I still can't get over the spot-on Naomi smile or fabulously poised Evangelista. What do you think: freaky or fabulous?
I was looking for cute Spring bottoms on ShopStyle, and after coming across a bunch of Marc Jacobs styles, it occurred to me: Marc is making some freaky bottoms these days! Skirts, bloomers, pants, shorts are all adorned with crazy ruffles, ethnic prints, and loud colors. Not anything I would come close to. Take for instance these Ruffled-trim Bloomer Shorts ($625) — the antithesis of flattering, right? Proceed to see four more freaky Marc Jacobs bottoms and be sure to also check out more freaky (or fabulous) fodder.
Shapewear is useful, but let's face it: It's not something you want to flash your date 'cause it ain't pretty. Bubbles Bodywear has a whole collection of butt-lifters, tummy-suckers, thigh-slimmers, and breast-lifters that are hilarious, like this Pick-Me-Up Max-Compression Brief ($55). The huge pads help give shape to the bum, but they also make us laugh. There's plenty more where that came from — even a few pieces for men! — so get ready for a good time.
