An ode to Prince: stop and Stare

His signature looks became just as famous as his music. He worked those flared legs, cropped tops, wide cuffs and high collars like nobody else could. Adding some sheerness, some shimmer and some shine. From jumpsuits to disco suits, a hoodie here, a hat there. His outfits slightly dark yet full on glam and always unmistakable ‘Prince’. He inspired the fashion world and vice versa. Even for SS2016 we could feel Prince’s style throughout some of the collections. Outfits created even before the world was going to have to miss a legend, in terms of music ánd style. We picked some summer looks that Prince would be able to rock on stage. Touches of purple and brocade as seen at Dries van Noten. Some silky suits from Gucci’s collection. High collars and waistcoats as show by Louis Vuitton. And transparencies shown by the likes of Ann Demeulemeester, Givenchy and Costume National. To make sure everyone would stop and ‘Stare’…

Lady Gaga was spotted in Paris this week wearing a dress of Dutch designer Jan Taminiau. The extravagant singer looked incredible in the couture piece from Jan Taminiau’s collection.

The shades of light pink and grey looked stunning on Gaga and the dress made her even more tall and slender.

We’re very proud of Jan Taminiau, but ofcourse we always knew he was a genius!

Check out the dress on Lady Gaga.

The most Gaga-worthy outfits for SS2010

There’s no doubt Lady Gaga’s success has something to do with the way she dresses. From day one she has looked out of the ordinary with her structured creations, body-exposing outfits and crazy headgear. She has been wearing those extreme designer outfits no one dares to wear in public and therefore she’s always in the news…

We’ve seen Lady Gaga in Armani prive, Gareth Pugh, Jeremy Scott, Chanel and Hussein Chalayan to name a few. The pop-diva has also worn some Viktor & Rolf creations before. The Dutch designers even got to make an outfit for Gaga’s video Telephone. But apart from all those designs, we think there are many more looks that would get Lady Gaga’s approval.

Out of all the spring/summer fashion shows we selected the most Gaga-worthy outfits. Those pieces mostly have crazy shapes, they show a lot of skin and several times they go with an eye-catching headpiece.

We selected multiple black body-revealing dresses with cut-outs, wholes and tears all over them (Asish, Byblos, Julian Macdonald, Mark Fast).

We picked out over the top hats from Aguggini (large with zebra-print), Jean Paul Gaultier (blue with Napoleon shape), Givenchy (shape of a lamp shade) and Watanabe (strange kind of turban).

We chose for two designs with accentuated shoulders. At Ilincic the shoulders were huge and made out of feathers, at Todd Lynn they resembled shark fins.

The opted for the Giles dress because of the big spiders and we picked Julian Macdonald’s dress because of the scales. Alexander McQueen’s outfits need no explanation; Gaga has already worn one of those (incl. the crazy shoes) in her video Bad Romance and we think Gaga would actually love to wear all of his designs.

Unfortunately Gaga’s on-and-off boyfriend Matthew Williamson didn’t design anything kinky that that would suit her. Yet we think there’s more than enough to choose from for the 23-year old singer. And if she doesn’t find the right outfit, she can always ask a designer to make one for her. Cause designers understand that Lady Gaga wearing one of your outfits is good publicity and they’ll do anything to make that happen.
