When Lady Gaga released 'Just Dance', a wave of YouTube video tutorials appeared, demonstrating how to create the perfect Gaga lightning bolt. Then came 'Poker Face', and with that a number of video tutorials on how to back-combing yourself the best hair bow in town, and since those early beginnings we have seen the eccentric performer rack up some crazy costumes, and with it, some crazy fads.
Whilst you might think that the smoking cigarette sunglasses she sported in the 'Telephone' video would be her most dangerous get-up, or the insane lobster-claw shaped McQueen Armadillo heels from 'Bad Romance', you would be wrong. In the very same video as the Armadillo heels made an appearance, Gaga created a fad that experts have warned could cause blindness - her doe-eyed look from the infamous video has sparked a frenzy of fans wishing to put their sight at risk to recreate her wide-eyed look by ordering illegal contact lenses all the way from Asia.
