As you will know, last year Lady Gaga started a column in V magazine and her latest installment, the singer has handed her writing role over to designers ranging from Karl Lagerfeld to Manish Arora to comment on her style and contribution to fashion.
'It is always stimulating to work with Lady Gaga because it allows my imagination to roam freely in order to create genuinely theatrical stage costumes, as was the case on this occasion,' Giorgio Armani wrote. 'Lady Gaga is an artist with a huge personality and amazing stage presence. I was attracted by her genuine interest in fashion and design, which she projects with a conviction that knows no limits — and which she definitely considers a vital ingredient of her career.'
Karl Lagerfeld on Gaga:
'Gaga gives the world her music and her talent, but the thing I like most is that she fights against boredom and banality. She also puts forth an ever changing, inspiring, and strong image — an image beyond fashion. She is an extreme concentrate of "zeitgeist," freeing us from the heavy boredom of publicly displayed political correctness by being herself more than politically correct. Something in today's world would be missed if there would be no Lady Gaga because Gaga is a Lady.'
Manish Arora on the singer:
'Daring. Far beyond fashion and beauty, Gaga's style is unpredictable, iconoclastic yet iconic and out of time. She is now and tomorrow, between fantasy and reality ... She is a statement of re-creating, a piece of art.'
