Meet Lady Gaga: the modern mix of Edie Sedgwick and Cyndi Lauper. She’s the modern Madonna, the newest wild, creating a fashion party craze that is taking the globe by glitter storm. Lady Gaga’s songs reflect a constant flow of urban thrills; the high life of booze, dancing, and parties. Shaking her platinum blonde locks and shining in sequins, her music videos alone provide a series of decadent sartorial indulgences. Singing about paparazzi, being overly drunk, money, and clothes, her songs spin off into their own “glamophonic” world, a life that drinks itself into a shiny, shimmering “disco heaven.”

Lady Gaga asserts that fashion is everything for her and this vividly comes across in her musical expression. But are we seeing a new age, an urban fashion icon? She is, indisputably, disco at its most contemporary. And most of her clothes are designed and made by the Gaga herself. She tells the Independent: “I designed these custom nude sequined panties with opalescent light blue rhinestones on them…I made this leather nude bra for my ‘Love Game’ video.” From Lady Gaga’s bubble dress to her extreme shoulder-padded blazers to her leather bikini and boot combos, this musician is showing the fashion clan a truly unique way of dressing. Lady Gaga herself says, “The way the world is…people are hungry for rejoicing and escaping.” This belief is demonstrated in her clothing designs and music, which, when fused together, provide not only the epitome of escapism but also a new disco-mania fashion trend.
