GLAM OR SHAM?: Lady Gaga at the Grammys



Lady Gaga’s dress from Armani Prive looks like it hurts. Between the plastic web design and spiky star, somebody could get lost, strangled and cut by this gown. 


In true Lady Gaga fashion, she paired it with crystal embroidered tights and shoes, blonde and daffodil yellowish hair and bubblegum pink lips. 


What do we think, Glamazons? Glam or a Sham?


UPDATE: I spoke too soon. Just when I thought Lady Gaga gave us all the jaw-dropping Gaga-ness she could muster, the camera panned the audience and I saw this.


Another Armani Prive creation specifically made for the star, that truly belonged in an alien movie. A silver headpiece and jacket that looked like what the Statue of Liberty would wear to a drag ball competition. Gaga paired them with her favorite crystal embroidered tights and heelless shoes. Her makeup in all its pale and bold pink glory is oddly fitting. 



Lady Gaga and Fashion God, Giorgio Armani, had this to say about the memorable collaboration:



Giorgio Armani says, “We hear Lady Gaga’s music everywhere we go. It is like a soundtrack of our times. In addition to her formidable songwriting skills, she is a modern fashion phenomenon. I am delighted to be creating these outfits on such an important night for her, the Grammys, and I wish her the best of luck.”
 
Sharing Mr. Armani’s enthusiasm, Lady Gaga adds,
“I am honored to be wearing Armani this evening. The series of pieces Mr. Armani created for me are truly iconic; they represent not only beautiful fashion, but my spirit and essence as an artist. Mr. Armani is a fashion legend, and tonight would not have been the same without his touch, and his wonderful team.”  


Lady Gaga is a superhero in my comic book and her performance, which opened the show, proves it. Alongside the legendary Sir Elton John, Lady Gaga sang “Speechless” and John’s “Your Song.” It was a stirring, epic performance that set the bar high for the rest of the show (did anyone else live up to it? I wasn’t blown away by any other artist).


At 62 and decked out in a Giorgio Armani black tuxedo and a pair of Giorgio Armani custom-made, Swarovski-encrusted sunglasses, Sir Elton John was right at home in Gaga’s glittery, filthy spectacle. Their chemistry made for a magical show. Check the video below:





So we know we can always expect a futuristic, over-the-top costume from Lady Gaga, but do these Armani looks measure up? What’s the verdict, Glam or a Sham?
