Lady Gaga Loses Her Sense of Style

lady gaga natali germanottaI love Lady Gaga, but honestly, if you told me a new clothing line designed by the Mother Monster was going on sale, I probably wouldn't be budgeting to drop serious dough on it. The truth is, I just don't think I'm the type to rock translucent latex nun costumes, egg-hued biblical-era sheaths, or platforms and berets made of fresh meat. Love it on Gaga, but that's just not my personal idea of a fashion statement. 

That's also why I was thrilled to hear she's abandoning her signature sense of style for her forthcoming fashion line with sister Natali Germanotta!

It's no surprise to Little Monsters that the haute couture-loving Lady seems to have been flirting with having her own line for some time now. (Hello, she ripped it up on Gilt when she sold Little Monsters pieces of clothing she actually WORE!) But now we know for sure that Gaga plans to collaborate with her little sis, who just completed her first year at Parsons The New School for Design in New York.

According to Grazia magazine, the collection will be "relatively normal and wearable." (Whew!) The theme of the designs will be "old Hollywood" with an iconic (perhaps modern?) twist. Think styles from classic icons from the past. For instance, the range will feature a rubber version of Marilyn Monroe's famous white halter neck dress from Some Like It Hot, and the black shift Audrey Hepburn immortalized in Breakfast at Tiffany's, redesigned with a plunging neckline.

Hot! And brilliant. (Although I'm not so sure rubber dresses fit the bill, but that's okay. Maybe it's very -- errm -- wearable, breathable rubber?) Because as many Little Monsters as there are and as much as they may love dressing up, the market for lobster hats and meat dresses is pretty slim. Stef and Nat seem wise to stick to slick, on-trend styles any woman can rock. Even if it means (slightly) sacrificing Gaga's wacky sartorial sensibility.

Would you wear clothes from Gaga and Natali's upcoming fashion line?
