Word has it, Lady Gaga will wear Giorgio Armani Prive tonight at the Grammys. If it turns out to be true, that would be quite a surprise, considering Gaga’s usual taste for outrageous get-ups and Armani’s reputation for understatement. Then again, although Armani’s red-carpet attire is generally tame, his runway looks are anything but. What do Gaga and Giorgio have in common? A serious love of headgear, big time.
‘We hear Lady Gaga’s music everywhere we go. It is like a soundtrack of our times,” the Italian designer said in a press release. “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.’
‘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,” Lady Gaga said in the same press release. “Mr. Armani is a fashion legend, and tonight would not have been the same without his touch, and his wonderful team.’
We are waiting with bated breath.
