Lady Gaga Upsets the Press With Versace Couture Headpiece
The "Applause" singer is given a rare piece from the Atelier Versace 2014 couture collection -- and fashion editors and couture costumers aren't too pleased.
Lady Gaga gets to wear what she wants -- when she wants.
After the "Applause" singer attended Atelier Versace's spring 2014 couture show, Donatella Versace allowed her to wear (and presumably keep) one of the most memorable pieces straight from Sunday's runway show -- a crystal-adorned mesh hood with a white fur coat -- to the postshow Versace dinner and afterparty.
This didn't go over well with fashion editors and couture costumers, who wanted to see the one-of-a-kind piece up close but couldn't since it was already given to Gaga, according to Vogue UK. Given that it's typically unusual for a couture piece to be handed out to a celebrity right after the show, the situation only further demonstrates the close relationship between Gaga and Versace.
The pop star didn't seem bothered by the upset people within the press, as she posted a photo on Twitter and wrote much to her satisfaction: "Me, Riccardo Tisci, Donatella Versace and Franca Sozzani. In white fur crystal hood #offtherunway."
You win, Lady Gaga, you win.
