Popstar Lady Gaga won the “Style Icon” award at the glittering ceremony hosted by Council of Fashion Designers of America at the Lincoln Centre in New York City – in a truly gaga worthy picture.
There is style and there is Lady Gaga style, and the singer carried off the latter with élan.
What was really interesting was the fact that she arrived wearing one costume and changed into another while receiving her trophy. This is a new trend that Gaga has started to follow, one may recall that she did the same at the David Letterman show last month – when she arrived sporting one look and gave the interview wearing another look altogether.

However, for the CDFA awards she didn’t do an entire look change – it was just her custom made black Thierry Mugler Mother Monster outfit that gave way to a “spike studded thong” mesh and leather body suit worn underneath. She sported a turquoise blue “Anna Wintour hairstyle” wig – maybe as an ode to the fashion journalist, who was the first to inform her about the win. We can only guess.
Gaga’s acceptance speech struck a chord with the audience when she attributed fashion for touching lives in the right way and filling people with happiness and hope. Now, that was some style statement!
