Fashion and Lady Gaga have been synonymous from the time the pop singer debuted her disco bra in 2009’s Just Dance music video to her skeleton makeup in this year’s Born This Way.
“The inspiration [for the outfits] comes naturally,” Gaga told Oprah Winfrey last year. “But I put a lot of time and effort into what I do, to the point that I do nothing else. I wake up in the morning and I work creatively all day. Being provocative is not about getting people’s attention. It’s about saying something that affects people, in a positive way.”Memorable looks include the enormous bow made of her own hair and the revival of Carerra sunglasses early in her career, Alexander McQueen’s red body suit for theMTV Video Music Awards
and her recent dresses of raw meat and Kermit the Frogs (an anti-fur statement).Gaga says all of her songs have specific outfits, and fans saw plenty of them last night at the BankAtlantic Center, her first of two performances in South Florida. The arena shows are a far cry from her more intimate performances on New Year’s Eve 2010 at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, or in 2009, when she sang three songs at SET on Lincoln Road. But even those early shows displayed Gaga’s unique style.
