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 Maxwell’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: “He 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 didn’t drop one ball anywhere. He’s very clear on what he wants, and he’s got that sort of Zen quality about him.”
Whether she would ever branch out into fashion design: “Let me just say now I’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 don’t have my own line and I probably never will. If I ever do anything in fashion it’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.”
The other designers she depends on: “I can always depend on [Azzedine] Alaïa. 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.”
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!
