Sorry, naysayers, but if loving Lady Gaga is wrong, we don’t wanna be right.
And apparently Giorgio Armani agrees.
The Italian designer, who has designed costumes for the envelope-pushing pop star’s concert tour, was the brains behind the racy head-to-toe bodysuit she wore while performing her single “Alejandro” on last night’s “American Idol.”
Bringing a welcome (albeit not exactly family-friendly) sartorial reprieve from Simon Cowell’s boring black V-necks, Gaga took the stage in a spotlight-stealing silk mesh bodysuit accented with embroidered Chantilly lace and crystal and jet beading, paired with a Cher-ific silk organza cape and black patent stiletto boots.
“‘American Idol’ is a real modern phenomenon that has captured the public’s imagination and delivers great drama,” Armani said in a press release.
“It is fitting then that the show is to host another modern phenomenon who has proved to be fascinating, and whose every appearance is a piece of theater: Lady Gaga.
“Dressing Lady Gaga for the Grammy Awards, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, and now for ‘American Idol’ has been a very exciting project.
“To complement the spirit of Lady Gaga herself, I have let my imagination run free, and the outfit I have created for her for ‘American Idol’ is pure fantasy.”
No kidding — that outfit’s the most over-the-top thing to hit the “Idol” stage since Adam Lambert.
We can’t wait to see what the Double-G dream team comes up with next!
