If it seems Lady Gaga’s career’s been as influential for her outre style choices as it has been for her charttopping pop hits, that’s because it has.
The “Poker Face” hitmaker made her mark on the fashion world with a series of bizarre creations. The real-life meat dress she wore to MTV’s Video Music Awards last August was the toast of the town for weeks. And just last month, Gaga was carried on to the Grammy Awards’ stage in an egg, in which she had been “incubating.” Lady Gaga even walked the runway during Paris Fashion Week for Thierry Mugler’s Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 collection earlier this month.
Thanks to her contributions to the Style Pages, the “Born This Way” star will receive the Style icon Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) in a June 6 ceremony in New York, The Associated Press reports. Gaga was selected for the honor after panelist became increasingly impressed with her one-of-a-kind fashion sense, CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg said in an announcement from her Manhattan studio on Wednesday.
Designing twins Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have been nominated for a prize in the Womenswear Category for Emerging Talent, while fashionisto Marc Jacobs will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Carnivore couture might just be the new black after all.
