Lady Gaga is no stranger to wearing designer wears, and it looks as though she couldn't even wait a week to try on some of Hedi Slimane’s debut creations for Saint Laurent Paris.
The designer showed his much talked about Spring 2013 collection last Monday during Paris Fashion Week, and although it’s received much flak in the industry, Lady Gaga seems to be on Team Hedi, as the first to have worn pieces from his collection literally straight off the runway.
Lady Gaga was in London on Monday to promote her new fragrance at Harrods and was seen wearing an all-black seventies-esque gypsy skirt, shirt and jacket all from Hedi Slimane’s debut collection (the hat she wore, although looking like it came from the same collection, was unfortunately not a Slimane creation). She was then seen wearing the same outfit as she dined and chatted with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange right across the street. Bizarre.
And of course she didn’t stop at just one Hedi Slimane outfit, as photos have emerged again of Mother Monster in yet another look from the collection while in Iceland to accept an award at the Yoko Ono Grant for Peace event.
One things for sure, we can safely assume they have forged an odd sort of friendship over their mutual disdain for fashion critic Cathy Horyn. Lady Gaga has had her own feud with the writer, and retweeted Slimane’s infamous remarks towards Horyn last week (they have since been removed) while praising the designer and the work he created. We’ll have to wait and see if Lady Gaga continues to wear his collection throughout the rest of the week, and maybe Horyn herself will have something interesting to say about their new friendship.
