I have been watching this season reliigiously and (as always) the cast, set and storyline as a whole is incredibly unique. I expected the costume design for Lady G to be incredibly outlandish, and trust me, it is. Her image as a whole is my favorite part of this season so far. AHS costume designer Lou Eyrich has collaborated with Gaga to create her timeless look.
The glove pictured above is designed by Michael Schmidt and made from Swarovski crystal.
The Countess is NOT Lady Gaga
"Most importantly, I want people to watch it and not feel like they're watching Lady Gaga, I'd like them to feel like they're watching The Countess. That's important to me, and I feel like I've spent a lot of time working on that"
Lady G has made it clear that her outfits are not to be provacative and are more than just shock value. "Thats my art".
Every fashion choice she makes, she is thinking about the storyline and what best conveys the message. For example, she has chosen white versus black to appear more motherly in some scenes. Or has opted out of certain accessories and jackets because she felt it did not fit the scene.
What's your opinion on her theatrical looks?
