From Shock To Chic

Perhaps the most consistent thing about Lady Gaga’s style is its inconsistency. You never know what to expect from the eccentric pop star, but if there’s any constant thread in her style, it’s outrageousness. While many of her ensembles are simply unwearable in the real world, we take a look back at some of her zany outfits and show you trends from them that you can integrate into your own style.

Tiered layers

Lady Gaga wears tiered layers

As with almost everything she does, Lady Gaga takes the trend of tiered clothing to an overwhelming extreme. As Reese Witherspoon showed (check out our Steal the Look for her tiered dress look!), tiered clothing can be done in a much more subtle and chic way. In addition to our suggestions to match Reese's look, be sure to check out Express' Ruffled Sweetheart-Neckline Dress ($59.50) and the Tiered Shirt Dress from Forever 21 ($42).

Beauty Editor's Note

How to "Lady Gagify" the look:

Find three humongous coffee filters, remove bottoms and drape over body, frills facing down. To achieve this hairstyle, wet hands and place in an electrical socket. Spritz with hairspray for maximum hold. Tell people it's "high fashion."

I love the beauty editors' notes :) Very cute. Lady Gaga's style is a little annoying. How in-your-face do you have to be? We get it. You're edgy. Now back off!

you just tore apart carrie bradshaw, a fictional character, for her ridiculous clothes some of which were on the show a decade ago. but you praise a woman who makes a character of herself for the ridiculous clothes she wears now. I have nothing against lady gaga's individuality, I like it. But I think it's kind of silly to do a piece like this followed by a piece like the one previously mentioned.
