Lady Gaga was out and about in NYC on Wednesday, hitting up all the NY Fashion Week hotspots and taking a break from making David Bowie roll in his grave.
Most notably, she stepped out at Brandon MaxwellÃ¢â¬â¢s show at NYFW, chatting with the Daily Beast about her friendship with Maxwell and more. Here are some highlights
Brandon Maxwell went to the Grammys with her: Ã¢â¬ÅHe was with me before I went on. He was with me when I got off. He dressed me for the rest of the night before he left. He got in the car and came to New York to do his show. I got on a plane right after to meet here. He didnÃ¢â¬â¢t drop one ball anywhere. HeÃ¢â¬â¢s very clear on what he wants, and heÃ¢â¬â¢s got that sort of Zen quality about him.Ã¢â¬Â
Whether she would ever branch out into fashion design: Ã¢â¬ÅLet me just say now IÃ¢â¬â¢m quite happy with him [Maxwell] designing for me and designing for other women. The thing is, at the end of the day, I have a real respect for fashion designers, and it is the reason I donÃ¢â¬â¢t have my own line and I probably never will. If I ever do anything in fashion itÃ¢â¬â¢s always going to be as a muse or aesthetic creative. I like to be part of helping artists find themselves and feel good about who they are. I would never, for a second, claim to be a proficient fashion designer.Ã¢â¬Â
The other designers she depends on: Ã¢â¬ÅI can always depend on [Azzedine] AlaÃÂ¯a. I can always rely on Donatella [Versace] to make a beautiful dress. That woman knows how to cut a beautiful dress. I can always depend on Hedi Slimane to make something that is so cool and so driven by lifestyle, artistry, and passion. I can always depend on Alexander McQueen to make me something that will blow my mind.Ã¢â¬Â
It’s kind of refreshing that Gaga sees herself as merely model/muse to designers…I feel like she knows her limitations, for once. A lot of the time I think Gaga thinks she can do anything (sing, act, dance, whatever) it’s good to know she has a healthy respect for one specific discipline/craft.
What do you think- will Gaga ever have her own line? WEIGH IN BELOW!
