Lady Gaga's designer to launch capsule line for Forever 21: Police tape for everyone!

lady-gaga-telephoneJust when you thought Lady Gaga’s fashion was unattainable, inaccessible, or prohibited from being worn in many public places, one of the designers who helped shape the wacky yet fabulous look of her Tarantino-tinged “Telephone” video has made the art of Gaga possible for the rest of us. L.A.-based designer Brian Lichtenberg, who crafted the now-famous crime scene tape number that Gaga donned in the video, is creating a line of graphic tees for Forever 21, making it the mega-chain’s first designer collaboration.

His designs have also found fans in Beyoncé and Rihanna, though the avant-garde factor will presumably be tamed down a bit for the mass market. But even with some dilution, I’m expecting cool prints and cut-outs, and hopefully a few nods to his celebrity work. The line sounds like it’d be the perfect weekend option — just cross your fingers that you don’t cross paths with a 12-year-old rocking the same tee.

What do you guys think of the design collaboration? Are you going to get a piece of Gaga for yourself?

    Geez, Lady Gaga’s arm look soooooo skinny in this picture. Lift some weights, woman!

      The pic looks photoshopped. Check out her elbows! But seriously, the graphic designer needs to be fired. He forgot to photoshop her face. She’s butt ugly in this pic. Her face is like a crime scene.

        Thats a photo still from the music video. You can’t photo shop a video.

        And you can’t call her ugly largely due to the fact that she’s covered in crime scene tape on half of her face.

    I’m sure a lot of Forever 21 shoppers have always aspired to show their lady bits.

      Ugh. I can’t believe I’m, of all people saying this, but that’s gross. Considering that their target customer is 13-18, your comment is just nasty.
      Even if you are being sarcastic, your comment is very inappropriate.

      • whatevs

        Listen, I’ve read your comments on plenty of other posts, so you’re not going to make me feel bad.

        Only when the clothes come out can you decide who is the one being inappropriate here, thanks.

        First of all, there’s like a million Nshis on these boards. I’ve seen Nshi, Original Nshi, The Original Nshi, Nshi’s Ghost, etc., so I can’t say I agree with everything those trolls have written.
        Second, I was not trying to make you feel bad. I’m not your mom. I was, however, attempting to point out that your comment was ignorant.
        Finally, have a nice day.

    This makes my day. As a gay guy in my 30s I am looking forward to seeing stupid Gen Y twinks trying to wear this stuff in the gayborhood. Should be a hilarious summer.

      LOL… i am so becoming the older gay myself… a 25-y.o. snubbing the new 18-y.o. gays… lol.

    While all of her consultants are worried about her fashion, maybe one of them could suggest–just possibly hint–to Lady Gag-Gag that she take some singing lessons.

    If I wanted to her my computer sing, I’d listen to VOCALOID.

      Ah, yes, let’s give the girl who was accepted to Julliard singing lessons.

      I think it’s easy for people to say that Lady Gaga has no talent just because her clothing/style/presentation is so out there. However, I went to a show during her Monster Ball tour and she sounded fantastic, and you could tell she was singing live. I know taste is subjective, but people need to give her more credit.

      And back to the fashion… I love Gaga, but I don’t want to dress like her.

    • RyRyNYC

      Terry, your comments verge on the retarded… I think Lady GaGa has proven on countless award shows that her raw talent is pure and computer-enhancement free. She’s no Aguilera in the vocals department but she is definitely gifted in both vocals and piano.

  • just jerry

    STFU – you can “edit” a video . . . I do it on a daily basis.

    As much as I have no shame wearing bizarre clothes down the street, I’d never even dream of wearing clothes like Lady Gaga. Carrie Bradshaw is about the extent I’d go to (I’m sorry, but I’m not brave enough to walk outside in a pink leotard. Leotards are for ballet studios). If the way she dresses – not on stage, but in public – is any indication, I’d be too scared to wear the T-shirts. They might end up resembling a very holey rag or a sticker.
