Lady Gaga received the Fashion Icon award at the CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony, and her outfit didn’t disappoint, at least from a visual shock value perspective. She wore a custom Mugler outfit and 24-inch heel-less platforms. The long train on the Mugler proved to be removable, because she accepted her award on stage in a bodysuit with a spiked thong.
In her acceptance speech she told the audience, “I can’t believe I’m allowed in here.” She also recounted a story about receiving a text from an “Anna” who she thought was her friend/ Nicola Formichetti‘s assistant, Anna Trevelyan. The text was telling her that she won the Fashion Icon Award. She responded by saying, “Yes, bitch, we did it!” But it wasn’t Trevelyan who texted her; it was Anna Wintour. The editrix’s reply? “That’s lovely.”
Gaga, I'm still onboard.
