In what has to be the most unlikely pairing in fashion history, the over-the-top and often outlandish Lady Gaga and Giorgio Armani, the designer known for his classic, elegant understated clothes, have officially hooked up.
Even though they haven’t yet formally met, the two icons have signed a multimillion dollar partnership, details of which remains murky, other than for plans for him to design outfits for her next tour.
]]>According to the Wall Street Journal. Roberta Armani,
Giorgio’s niece, explains the Gaga appeal: “A huge company like
Giorgio Armani has the duty to always be alert to trends and what
appeals to young people. It helped to see how the world is through Lady
Gaga, the way she uses Facebook and Twitter.”
Ahah. So it’s her
marketing skills and powerful social media reach Armani admires and
envies. Well, don’t we all? Sounds like Armani is trying to get hip
(and relevant) quick.
Will Gaga’s Little Monsters buy
Armani if she wears his creations? And is there a Gaga/Armani fragrance
in the works? Her fans — including us — would definitely buy that.
