Lady Gaga, in Stéphane Rolland Haute Couture and Emmy Award Winner Nigel Lythgoe (of "American Idol"), 39th International Emmy Awards, NYC HiltonHappy Day After Thanksgiving! Last night, Miss Lady Gaga had her "Very Gaga Thanksgiving Special"--a 90-minute Lady Gaga infomercial--I mean Holiday TV Special-- shown on ABC. It was awkward at times, schmaltzy at others and yes, the GIRL is talented!!!
Now, speaking of NOT disappointing on the Fashion Front, check out Lady Gaga's ensemble which she wore earlier in the week on Monday for the 39th International Emmy Awards (PS: I had no idea there was such a thing as an "International Emmy Award", but now I do--because of her!). It was held at the Mercury Ballroom at the NYC Hilton (say what??). Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance to present the honorary International Emmy Founders Award to Britain’s Nigel Lythgoe, executive producer of “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance.” She also surprised everyone in attendance with showing lots of side leg, half-a-bootie and enough white-meat muscle to make a plump turkey jealous! Her gown was from Parisian designer Stéphane Rolland (one of my favorite designers) and from his Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2011/2012 Collection and from the looks of the 10 inches too-long spilling onto the floor, it was probably the actual runway sample. The gown was black, featuring a very structured shoulder, one sleeve and a cowl-draped side opening that showed lots of what was going on inside (of Lady Gaga's legs). Reps for the designer say that it "wasn't to be worn that way" citing that it was meant for a much taller model and therefore (somehow) on this taller model, it wouldn't expose so much. Well, kids, here's that much taller model in the gown:
