2011 Winner: FASHION ICON AWARD
We got to know her through her music, but it’s Lady Gaga sartorial selections that have put her in the center of the style map. While she hasn’t worked with every designer out there, she ‘s worked with an awful lot of the most wayward and/or avant garde createurs out there. More than any public person on the scene, just saying the name Lady Gaga evokes unforgettable images. The gravity-defying hoof shoes … The futuristic black cage dress … The red lace, and face covering, dress by McQueen … The hair ornaments and its ever-changing color … And of course, the steak tartare-evoking dress made completely of meat. Some may claim that she’s derivative in ways, but to us, Lady Gaga’s a true original and our fashion icon.
