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 Maxwellâ€™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: â€œHe 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 didnâ€™t drop one ball anywhere. Heâ€™s very clear on what he wants, and heâ€™s got that sort of Zen quality about him.â€
Whether she would ever branch out into fashion design: â€œLet me just say now Iâ€™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 donâ€™t have my own line and I probably never will. If I ever do anything in fashion itâ€™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.â€
The other designers she depends on: â€œI can always depend on [Azzedine] AlaÃ¯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.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!
