I predict that the famous fashion extremist, Lady G will soon stun the world by doing a fashion about face. For years now she has been the shock jock of the fashion world taking high fashion to the furthest extremes. It’s been fun to watch and wonder how she walks in those skyscraper shoes. I for one, want to know how she goes to the bathroom in those outfits!
I remember what a difficult time I had trying to urinate while in my wedding gowns (at all three of my weddings) and yes, I am ‘one of those’ been married a few times kind of women. I’m not the only woman to face the wedding dress toilet dilemma. I still laugh thinking about my daughter’s wedding and how her sister and I had to gather her dress carefully around the toilet so she could pee and not mess her dress. Does Lady G have a special toilet or gizmo we commoners don’t know about? Or does she have a steel bladder? These are the kind of crazy things I think about when she is dressed in such outrageous clothes. I wish I could be a fly on the wall just for a week to see how she really functions or malfunctions.
Knowing how Lady G loves to shock, the biggest shock of all times would be for her to start dressing extremely conservative…lady like to the max (all puns intended). Now that would cause a huge stir in the fashion and music worlds!
Going back to the subject of comfort and fashion, I can’t believe that I, Eve Michaels, is even questioning the comfort of Lady Gaga’s fashion extremism. Me, the one who admonishes my Beauty Boot Camp students for thinking comfort and style are enemies!
Me, the self-professed and recovering “some is good, more is better” type of woman…wondering about the comfort of Lady G’s outfits! I have to laugh at myself.
But as I watched Lady G sitting at The Grammys looking so miserable in her caged facial net, I couldn’t help but think how ridiculous she looked and that enough is enough. When the “look” becomes the prison, it’s time to break free.
