This is one of the most horribly wonderful things I’ve ever seen. It’s kitch at it’s most brilliant. This is what happens when you let artists design your clothes. Apparently Lady Gaga has a team of artists that help design her wardrobe. She wore this wonderful thing for an interview in Germany recently, she walked into the interview as if she is wearing a mink jacket. Remember those mink jackets from the 1930′s-40′s era – that actually had mink heads on them? Made me wonder what Ms. Piggy would have thought about this – yikers. Imagine the possibilities though,Lady Gaga could start a spoof of Hermes, and call it “Kermes”.
