Lady Gaga would currently have more influence in the fashion world than Anna Wintour, the director of Vogue. The extravagant pop star inspires her (many) fans, but also expressed a very clear impression on the modecatwalks for spring and summer 2010.
The trends and the crisis
We are experiencing an exceptional historical moment. A world crisis that – and this is inevitable – affects our lives in all aspects. Economically and socially, but also in fashion and beauty world. On the one hand, we do a few steps back (many fashion designers respond to the crisis with conservative basic collections and there seems to be some resistance to emerge against too drastic cosmetic treatments), on the other forms of space phenomena sometimes as a “safety valve” could serve. The general public but also the fashion world can be a happy inspiration. The most striking phenomenon of the moment, Lady Gaga.
The Lady Gaga-ism
Max Della Maggesa, make-up artist in the international fashion world and therefore very familiar with and interested in trends, tells us more about what he calls “the gaga-ism ‘. “A phenomenon that in many fashion shows for summer 2010 in various forms have been seen is Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga is one singer that everyone will know. But she is more. She is currently possible for a variety of roles and projects requested. She is a style icon, a muse, a craze. Lady Gaga is truly an extraordinary phenomenon that will only be compared to Madonna thirty years ago. ”
The phenomenon Lady Gaga
“After we have Madonna – Lady Gaga to – basically anyone who has seen Madonna had to compare. Never has anyone so long stood at the top of Madonna, without ever falling. No one has time and again introduced new looks have become fashionable again and again. I remember, “says Della Maggesa,” that “Like a Virgin” came out. She then had to look with lace and cross by young girls in the world was immediately imitated. And stylists let themselves from Madonna’s inspired look. She was the muse of artists and hairdressers. Coiffeurs clipped to their customers the same hair style as Madonna and even actresses and singers were a hairstyle a la Madonna fitting. She inspired everyone. ”
“You could say that Lady Gaga in this millennium the first person who is somewhat the same appeal to the public and the fashion world exercises. So far nobody has been that such a global impact has had. ”
Mix of styles, attention to detail
“What this means for the makeup?” Maggesa says Della. “At least as much attention to detail Lady Gaga is someone who mixes different styles together simultaneously. She wears wigs, fur has painted nails have red lips, smoky eyes and loves wearing nepwimpers. She makes an unlikely mix. She pulls things together that you never would get together. She is inspired by different periods. Bring the 40s, 50s, 60s to 90s together in a look that you just like Lady Gaga-ism could describe. ”
“The whole mix of different elements is a single element: Lady Gaga. Indivisible and almost impossible to do “, says Della Maggesa. “It’s a style that is not easily copied by girls or women leave because you quickly run the risk that you exaggerate. But they may have. She knows how to do it. Of course she has a great staff that helps her, but I believe that this kind of strong women when it comes to decide themselves. ”
Lady Gaga’s strength is that she has tremendous eye for detail. This allows them all styles of mixing. She is one of the few women who can be sexy without anything vulgar to be. She can show her breasts, buttocks shifting attention to her and yet she is never vulgar. She is so exaggerated that it seems a cartoon character. She is so unique that its appearance is unreal. That’s why she never vulgar. And why is she loved by everyone. Children, grandparents, young and less young women, heterosexual and homosexual men. She is an icon for the whole world. ”
Eyeliner, wigs and nepwimpers
“I think Lady Gaga striking elements we have in the makeup for this season to see introduced. Think of the wide eyeliner on the eyelid, the use of nepwimpers, the intense red mouths that are back in fashion, the use of wigs (especially on modecatwalks), the type of footwear in the fashion is. They affect the trends with extreme power. I think it is a phenomenon that over the years will continue. “
