The Designer Behind Lady Gaga’s Egg

Published

on

Only Lady Gaga can rock an egg like she did at the Grammy Awards. And it very well may be that only one designer can create it. Gaga has apparently been a fan of the designer for some time… and may have been inspired by a piece that he had created years ago…

His name is Hussein Chalayan, a Turkish designer widely regarded both as a genius, and as somewhat controversial figure in his field.

Now forthy, when he was eight years old he moved with his family to England, where he would eventually study fashion and become an Absolut Fashion Award winner and two time title holder of British Designer of the Year.

He is as passionate about his fashion as he is about his arts projects… Place To Passage, a 2004 exhibition which bears a striking similarity to the egg, is a statement about, according to his website: “the implications of speed, technology and displacement to the extent of urging a return back into the the womb.”

It’s no wonder that Gaga is a fan… Chalayan too knows how to get big buzz… even when his clothes aren’t the thing causing all the attention. Fabsugar’s report of Paris’ Fashion Week in 2007 would have been crazy not to mention the showstopping angle for his runway show, which “featured apparel that opened and fell away on its own, leaving models standing on the runways in the buff. It was a technical marvel created by a special effects team who worked on Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”

In fact, Lady Gaga is so much of a fan that she has previously been accused of copying the designer.

Whatever happened back then, it appears the past is past, and the two have collaborated on this Grammy Ensemble to great success. Twitter users practically bubbled over with enthusiasm over the entrance, a calculated reference to her new single ‘Born This Way,’ which has been the subject of some criticism over similarities to Madonna’s “Express Yourself.” After tonight, however, few people are likely to be talking about the comparison. Gaga’s signature – a distinctly distinct look, (don’t forget her meat dress from the MTV Awards last year) combined with her award wins, will instead be the headline.

By the way, this is not Chalayan’s first time working the pop artist/concert beat… back in 1995 he was also known as the designer of choice for Bjork… not only did he do many of her costumes for her “Post” concert tour, he also designed the jacket she wore for her iconic album cover

Chrissy Metz has a thing to say to the critics who believe they know what she should and should not wear.

Chrissy Metz has a thing to say to the critics who believe they know what she should and should not wear.

The “This Is Us” star has a “10 percent black” rule for red carpet looks – in other words, she doesn’t fall back on the ‘black is slimming’ adage that – face it – we all have called upon no matter what our size now and then.  No stranger to color, prints or styles, she is a great role model for dressing confidently for women of all sizes. So when she showed up at Sunday’s MTV Movie & TV Awards in a custom latex dress, she turned heads with the look.

Of course, because it’s easy to hate when you’re an anonymous internet commenter, some f0lks deicede to points. But Metz wasn’t having it – using twitter to make sure she made her point, (and did so quite eloquently.)

According to People, the look was one she had been planning with her stylist Jordan Grossman for close to a year, and with no appropriate event to wear it to previously (the Oscars or even the Golden Globes don’t have the edge necessary to really make this kind of splash) she went for it for the MTV event.

Well done, and lookin’ fierce, Chrissy!
