The Lady Gaga Look Book

It’s hard to remember this now, but Lady Gaga’s sartorial beginnings were humble, with her fashioning bras from halves of disco balls and tying her hair in a bow. (You can see exclusive images of the early Lady Gaga in Vanessa Grigoriadis’s cover feature, “Growing Up Gaga.”) Eventually, she would paste a zipper over her eye for her American Idol debut, and wear a coat made entirely from Kermit the Frog dolls. As her fashion sense became more avant-garde, her fame sky-rocketed. Her uniform for the past year has often just consisted of drag-queen heels and underwear, whether she’s appearing in a fashion magazine spread or simply walking to her car.
