Lady Gaga in Tokyo

Though I actually don't regularly listen to Lady Gaga's music, I really admire her aesthetic and how she is truly passionate about fashion. Lady Gaga was in Japan this past weekend for The Monster Ball Tour but also appeared on popular TV show Music Station and also performed at a secret show hosted by M·A·C.
I can't find any photos of her at Music Station and the videos on You Tube have been deleted already...but for both Music Station and the secret show, she wore a lot (if not most) of pieces from Japanese designers. I love that she wore Japanese designers because I don't feel like many Japanese musicians/actors/etc. support young, independent designers.
実はあまりレディ・ガガの音楽は聞かないんですが、彼女の性格やファッションに対する気持ちなどとても素敵だと思います。ツアーの他にミュージックステーションの出演やM·A·C主催のシークレットライブもありましたね。
いつも話題を呼ぶレディ・ガガの服装ですが、ミュージックステーションでもシークレットライブでも日本のブランドを着てました!地元、若手のアーティストをサポートする姿勢もレディ・ガガが好きな理由の一つ。日本のアーティストや芸能人がこういう形でサポートするのは本当に少なくて残念...

Lady Gaga wore a lace bodysuit from SOMARTA's (briefly mentioned here) 2nd Skin Series for both Music Station and the secret show.
ミュージックステーションでもシークレットライブでもSOMARTA(ここで軽く触れてます)2nd Skin Seriesのレースのボディースーツを着用。

At Music Station, she wore a black version that was sparkly and less see-through than this one. According to GagaDaily.com, the body suit is decorated with 20 thousand Swarovski crystal beads and takes 5 months to complete!
ミュージックステーションはこの写真のボディースーツにスワロフスキーのクリスタルビーズがついている感じでした。GagaDaily.comによると、ビーズの数はなんと2万個で、作るのに5ヶ月かかるそうです!

Some of you may remember seeing a similar design from this post here. These are from NORITAKA TATEHANA, and Lady Gaga wore them on Music Station and posted a photo on her Twitter.

These shoes were custom made for Lady Gaga. I feel lucky that I had the chance to see his collection in person!
この靴はカスタムオーダーだそうです。以前生でコレクションを見る機会があってラッキーでした!

I’m quite a Lady Gaga fan because I find there is something raw and honest about her. It’s quite considerate of her to wear Japanese designers when in Japan. I’ve read of Somarta and was totally intrigued by their lace body suits.

The bodysuits are gorgeous!
I love how Gaga is always entertaining us with creative, conceptual outfits. Sometimes her outfits are so crazy, but when I hear her talk about the concept behind it, I like it a lot more.

I love her outfit, sometimes it seems really obnoxious the things she wears but I appreciate that she wears what she likes and challenges what we expect.
The body suits is quite nice and I really love those shoes! I've seen them a few places like in some editorials, they seem so amazing, I'd love to own a pair, I have no idea how walking in them would work though!


Love this post :D

Jess said...

I'm the same - I think she's an amazing entertainer and admire her gutsyness but I'm not the biggest fan of her music either. Those shoes are insanee but perfect for Gaga :)

I don't usually listen to lady gaga's music, but she seems to be so nice, you know, wearing japanese designers' clothes for the show, not everybody does that, and she seems to be so nice with all her fans
