Lady Gaga Had No Clue About What Media Had Turned Her Valentino Dress Into And That’s Magic!

That’s how it’s done!

Lady Gaga took the head-to-toe look to the level of what head-to-toe literally means. Lavender blue, crisp and wonderful custom Valentino Couture dress. Most probably blue shoes, but that’s no news. And blue hair! A look that might go into the Golden Globes’ history forever. Gaga is forever. A Star Is Born is forever. There was no doubt Lady Gaga wouldn’t have taken the whole thing to forever.

And that’s so Gaga. Bow down, bi***es, as Béyonce would sing. Bey and Jay’s daughter’s name is Blue.

Hailing from the AW18 Couture collection, Gaga’s billowing frock is a pastel blue version of the darker colourway from the catwalk, and an homage to Judy Garland’s 1954 A Star Is Born look. Bravo to stylists Sandra Amador and Tom Eerebout, who added a Tiffany necklace and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. We love how she’s gone full throttle matchy-matchy with dyed blue tresses too!, The Daily Mail.

The best part? The gown is a dead-ringer for a style worn by Judy Garland—the OG star of A Star Is Born—in the 1954 version, as pointed out on Twitter below. Beautiful, thoughtful, and on-theme: the perfect trifecta., Vogue.

… Is what the media says. Lady Gaga’s reaction to the comparison, nevertheless, is both priceless and sweet. She had no idea whatsoever about the analogy the interviewer at Entertainment Tonight made on the spot on her iPad, but was thrilled with it. Is it possible that stylists Sandra Amador and Tom Eerebout along with Pierpaolo Piccioli didn’t have Judy Garland’s 1954 look in mind when creating Gaga’s look and it all just happened?

That sounds like magic!

Magic, it’s a kind of magic
It’s a kind of magic
Magic, magic, magic, magic
Magic, ha ha ha ha it’s magic
Ha ha
Yeah, yeah
It’s a kind of magic

Are the lyrics of Queen’s A Kind Of Magic.

Bohemian Rhapsody won the Golden Globe for Best Drama and Best Actor (Rami Malek).

Watch from 10:50.

Lady Gaga is head-to-toe gaga, that’s a fact. Lady Gaga channeling Judy Garland’s look from back in ’54 – as an idea – might have been a beautiful idea Lady Gaga would have liked and gracefully embraced. For Lady Gaga, though, to be compared with Judy Garland by a mere coincidence is pretty blissful. So maybe the stylists and Valentino’s creative director did know and Gaga didn’t, but then it’s still so very cute the way Lady Gaga responded to the affirmation live on the red carpet.

A diva.


It is all over the Internet. Lady Gaga pays tribute to Judy Garland’s 1954 release A Star Is Born at the Golden Globes 2019.

A Star Is Born is an American musical romantic drama film produced and directed by Bradley Cooper (in his directorial debut) and written by Eric Roth, Cooper and Will Fetters. It marks the fourth remake of the original 1937 film (starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March), the 1954 musical (starring Judy Garland and James Mason), the 1976 rock musical (starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson) and the 2013 Bollywood film Aashiqui 2.

Lady Gaga was nominated for Best Actress, yet won the internet over with her gown and the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for a Motion Picture.

She must have dropped the mic in her mind. She’s too graceful to do it at the Golden Globes while in Valentino, but she just might do it with her friends at home, in the living room.



There’s Something That Rocks Big Time Here

And is so silently powerful.

Or is it the bag?

This bag is so cool in a rock (subtly or not) inspired combo it hurts the way rock is supposed to hurt. My mind is now searching for the perfect song to it, it has the headphones on, it moves its hands through CDs and eyes through memory, just like DJs do.

You have to feel rock music, to listen to the lyrics, to move (or not) upon feeling it. You don’t have to, you can do whatever, you are listening to rock music, hello. However, in most of the cases, it will also bring back childhood memories. Because, in most of the cases, it is a music we are listening to now as adults thanks to precisely the times we thought we knew nothing about anything as kids.

The bag is Valentino and Valentino is so cool for being Valentino since forever. Harmonious, true, passionate, elegant, yet a brand you have to look into to observe its unique way of making style throughout times. Silently, yet so powerfully.

Just like the picture above.

And the video below; my mind just pressed play all of a sudden.

This is a track I once put on a sex CD a very dear colleague of mine and I compiled when we used to work at a music TV channel. A CD we made one another just for fun, not for work, while at work. Memories, see? And this is a coincidence. Or is it my mind playing not just pressing play?


Alice, my former coworker, would totally wear the combo above.

A relaxed jumpsuit seems to be underneath it all, so now let us all imagine… everything! Let your mind do the walking, let my body do the talking is very likely what the lady above would tell us all and it is very likely that we would all want to see the world in her eyes.

Just observe. The super sharp jacket, the fine fabric, the super fiery bag, the beautiful hands, the nice touch the hands give the bag. Hugging, loving. A feminine rockstar. The grey in combination with black, red and gold is so kind of keeps-everything-inside, doesn’t-let-us-in-at-all and whilst we all feel the warmth, the keeps-everything-inside, doesn’t-let-us-in-at-all does not let us in.

This whole magic thing above is a world on its own and, man, we’d love to be in it. No? I would want to see the lady and for sure want to grab a coffee with.

Did someone say coffee?

Everybody Is At Least A Little Into Fashion #ss18


The things that first come to my mind when thinking of this fall’s fashion weeks for spring/summer 2018 might be the things you might want – hopefully – to have in your mind when talking over dinner tonight about the world, fate, work, passion, movies, books, style or fashion – hopefully – without the burden of ever being a fashion victim.

The more we know, the more we realise how much more there is to know is what they say, right?

Sometimes enjoying fashion feels wrong, yet at other times playing with it feels necessary just for the sake of playing and our brains. There is no prescription for how we’re supposed to act, think or do, so each of us can simply rely on what each of us feels based on intuition and knowledge.

So tonight, you and your friends. Dinner. Maybe some of them know, maybe some of them don’t, but you here reading this are about to find out. Because you are special, we all are and – hopefully – the friends you hang out with get you and are on the same page with you, unlike the lady who interviewed Jim Carrey during New York fashion week. The shock might have scared her and that’s why all the ***faces*** while Jim Carrey was just being himself and expressing in his own way what he felt like ***no faces***. Ultimately, we all kind of get what he sais, each of us just chooses whatever it is each of us wants to see or believe in.

So. Hello!

Pierpaolo Piccioli proved at Valentino once again that if you stay true to who you are and, therefore, do exactly what you feel like, in spite of trends, trending models or multi-million-followers Instagram accounts, you can reinvent the ordinary to make it extraordinary. Sort of the little things which are never little. Or simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.

That you can actually make love that can be shared with the world.

Renaissance princesses with a twist. Translucent and sparkling dresses. Sportswear with pumps. Sequins. Fireworks! Millennial pink which slowly but surely turns into the timeless black. Or red, or white. Or the ’80s – always in for those embracing the disco ease, the dancing, the spirit – I wanted to get back something of the glamour of the eighties that Mr. Valentino did so well, Pierpaolo said.

Grace Jone’s soundtrack is as strong as Piccioli’s creations.

Furthermore, his walk at the end of the show was just as elegant as the collection. He simply, smilingly and nonchalantly walked into the airy Parisian courtyard through the first rows, hugged Mr. Valentino and climbed up the leader as if preparing for the lift off. The Spring Summer 2018 collection had been partly inspired by the perspective of the Apollo moon landing, in which the earth was photographed from space and revealed in all its natural wonder, as Piccioli said according to vogue.com.

Emmanuelle Alt throws the most disco parties of them all. She is who we have always believed she has been. A fun, loving life, party girl. 

Mica Argañaraz looks cool in anything she wears, depending on the show. She’s got a talent to be in any character she wants to without making a fuss out of it and lucky for it to be mastered by the coolest designers around. Check it out:

The frenzy over Thom Browne. Everybody’s stories and instastories.

Where some designers submerge themselves in the real world, Browne has always posited fashion as fantasy, dreaming bigger, pushing the eye to places it didn’t know existed. At a time when the world feels like a pretty bleak place indeed, his brand of escapism is more appealing than ever. It only makes sense then, that Browne should close his show with a life-size unicorn puppet instead of a bride – the mythical creature is surely his spirit animal. The fashion world could use more of his kind. Chioma Nnadi at vogue.com.

The trend that seems to have transitioned from the streets of #fashionweeks to our telephones and desktops is the trousers suits. The bigger and bolder the better.

Demna Gvasalia at Balenciaga continues to mock the fashion victims who would wear absolutely anything at any cost (literally) as long as it’s right from the catwalks and would not think it through. Maybe they just feel and that is all right as long as they are happy. Anyway, Gvasalia’s incisive, yet chic sort of sense of humour was all over the collection.

The coolest things at the show, though: 1. the models and 2. the fact that They [items] are joined, so you can wear them one way or the other as you will (Demna Gvasalia).

Céline is céline as always.

Calvin Klein for having Kaia Gerber on the lips of the whole planet.

Prada‘s new shape of sunglasses for Spring Summer 2018.

The colours at Stella McCartney and Stella McCartney.

The jumpsuits at Emanuel Ungaro.

The Vera Wang SS18 pictures that very mysteriously walked through the feed of my Instagram.

Old school cool at Isabel Marant.

Louis Vuitton for having Alicia Vikander as their icon and as of the #pfw Emma Stone also. A Vogue editor summed up the SS collection though as “Hamilton goes jogging”. The truth is that the robes and the bags were striking.

The neon socks at Miu Miu.

👇🏻 at Marni.

And yes, Donatella Versace‘s blow up of Instagram. Phshhh!

Have a good Fall WInter 2017, everybody!

And a fun night all right! Wink.

Fall 2016 Haute Couture. Bisous! Fromage.

Here comes a feeling you thought you’d forgotten.

You know?

And precisely when I just thought I was over it and a few days have passed since it anyway, I woke up to my Instagram feed and Instagram prioritises have changed (alike mine). They, firstly, show you friends’ morning faces, Monday moods, wishes for the world and, only secondly, they show you not-your friends (but kinda in the friend zone) showing off their work. And I had to stalk them in order for them to “grow” in my feed.

#fwp is so close to #pfw, it scares me.

The Fall 2016 Couture Fashion week à Paris, évidemment, has just wrapped up. Shortly after the made-to-measure Spring 2017 menswear week has. The so called menswear, since it is actually for us, too, the ladies, to love and wear. No? Men could just wear the t-shirt we have just slept in the night before and we would be just fine with it. No?

With couture, tho, oh! Menswear, womenswear, we love them couture. Haute couture. Haute, haute! 

Pierre Alexandre Claudius Balmain described the art of dressmaking as “the architecture of movement”. To me, clothes need to have sort of personality of their on on me or one that blends with mine. I could not wear clothes that wouldn’t make me feel like myself. Couture, though, “oh!”, so myself! Jees, I am kidding, but I absolutely adore the passion one can observe in the bright light. Or at night. Ha.

To be able to wear couture, one should feel couture. As in high. Sky high. Thigh high. And let the love be made from inside out on one. Inside – one. Out – couture. On one – one’s body. And dance. And not look at the price tags. So irrelevant.

You and me, we are blending now, yes? While laughing at the “irrelevant”, yes? Ha. Ha.

Ladies and gentlemen, Fall 2016 Haute Couture! Let’s make our OZ. In Paris.

Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy.


Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli at Valentino reminded us of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death and made the taffeta whoosh and the drama begin. For real, since Chiuri is in at Christian Dior. And Chiuri seems all right. Click, yes. But so seems Piccioli.





The way the two Swiss understudies, Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux, managed to make yet another couture collection (in slippers!) at Christian Dior, after Raf Simmons’ sudden quit last October. Meow (the extreme cat eyes filter)!




John Galliano‘s va-va-voom (duh!) at Maison Margiela.




At Versace, Donatella Versace said this couture collection was “different” for her. It was for us, too. In a very good way. Apart from the interesting lines, cuts and colours, the glittery lips had a catwalk of their own. Partying side by side with the shoes.





So the couture week is, usually, happening in Paris, but when you are Karl Lagerfeld and you have been the designer of Fendi for 50 years, you have to let your guests know and you fly them to Rome. To Fontana di Trevi and well, you go with the flow. Literally. Since the models walked on top of its pools. Cools. And wore fur ribbons in their hair. Care.






Giambattista Valli makes dresses I would wear to weddings where I would be sure the bride has a prettier dress. They are just pretty like a fairy tale pretty. I would wear them with some rock sandals or just white (super worn) sneakers. Oh, yes, I am safe then. From the bride. Snickers!






The Haute In The Paris Couture Spring 2016


Your typical Saturday let’s-go-for-a-coffee attire. In your dreams. Unless you’re Lena Perminova or Giovana Battaglia. Then you can go for a coffee on a chill Saturday morning wearing haute couture.

You know when you’re dreaming and you are all dressed up, but then again you are just going to your local coffee shop and then you wonder how come were you wearing that? You must have gone to a ball (a party would always also do) the night before and these were the after hours already. Yes, yes, that’s it.

This is an amusing (do you sense the difference between amusing and funny?) introduction to a very serious content. The haute couture fashion content. Uu. It’s pronounced [ot kuˈtyʁ] in French and it actually means high not hot and it only takes place in Paris. Où d’autre? The “haute” and the “couture” (“dressmaking” translated from French, “fashion” translated into any language).

Haute couture is all about handmade, extreme attention to detail, expensive fabrics and often custom made for a client. It takes infinite hours of work and potentially (hopefully) lasts a lifetime, the antithesis of fast fashion’s notorious processes and disposability. If chosen well, they will look just as beautiful and “in-fashion” ten years from now.

You just have to choose from this week’s fashion shows, this week’s haute couture fashion shows in Paris. This is what I chose. À plus! 


Armani Privé by Giorgio Armani. The way it has always been done, it is supposed to be done. The couture is splendid and is there just to compliment the wearer. Never vice versa.

Giambattista Valli by Giambattista Valli. The collection was inspired by the jardins du Paris. And I could tell you just anything now, but when you’ll see this dress you won’t listen. This dress:

Jean Paul Gaultier by Jean Paul Gaultier. From all the couture shows, this particular show embodies not only the dresses, but the girls. Man, their attitude! Fun! And pleasure! Gaultier’s couture (and show) was inspired by Paris. Yet again. By the nightclub LePalace, back in the days, where Grace Jones wrapped herself in a scarf handed by Yves Saint Laurent after once being stripped naked by fans just before performing on stage. Uh-la-la, intense…

Maison Margiela by John Galliano. The perfect form of art when too much is perfect and all you ca do is just surrender, lay back and enjoy the show. Or get in it.

Ulyanna Sergeenko by Ulyanna Sergeenko. It is reportedly said that each of these dresses took about five months to be made. To me,it could have been five hours. I would have loved them the same. The 80’s silhouettes are making a huge comeback. Bonjour!

Valentino by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. You would smell a Valentino dress from afar and uh, it smells… Noble.

Viktor & Rolf by Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren. I bet Lady Gaga has them on speed dial.

OZinPARIS Viktor&Rolf OZinPARIS Viktor&Rolf 3

Elie Saab by Elie Saab. “India is her backdrop and her inspiration for a new blend of formalism and ease, opulence and elementary lines.”, Saab. “Her” being an Englishwoman travelling to India. I would travel like this.

Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld. Chanel is well… Chanel.

Aouadi by Yacine Aouadi. Yacine Aouadi said his dream would be to design for Chanel. Now that’s a big dream. He dreams big, but then again everyone is talking about dreaming big, so you never know. What I know is that the complexity of his looks is actually really light. Light as in not heavy. You know? Moreover, the attention this man is giving to the back of the outfit also is refreshing. So fresh, yet so couture. “Rrr”… In French.
