Style Spotlight: Lady Gaga
3:38 am on Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013
Lady Gaga is widely known for her fashion risks, she constantly grabs people’s attention with her “out there ” style. Recently Lady Gaga released her latest single “Applause” so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to applaud her decision to incorporate fur in to her fashion-forward, eye-catching looks.
Lady Gaga turned heads when she stepped out in this pink Hermes fur coat. Many fans were outraged that Gaga, who was once very vocal about not wearing fur, stepped out wearing such an extravagant fur coat. Lady Gaga tweeted in response to the backlash, “To those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer Hermes.”
Shortly after making waves in her pink fur coat Gaga once again went out in public wearing another fur coat, this time it was a more toned down grey fur coat that she wore in Bulgaria.
Once again Lady Gaga’s wardrobe choice caused chaos among animal activists and she released this statement, “I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. “Animal Rights.” I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, “kermit” and not to mention meat, that I have already worn. This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan.”
” I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially i have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat. I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance. But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, its a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals. I respect your views, please respect mine.”
One of the qualities Lady Gaga is most admired for is her ability to not care about what anyone else thinks, this case was no exception. She wears fur loud and proud and ignores what the critics have to say. Gaga is truly fabulous and we love her ability to view fashion as art. This week we applaud Lady Gaga for choosing to wear fur!
