9780007379019: Lady Gaga: Extreme Style

She’s had four number one hits in the UK in the past fourteen months. She took home two Grammy awards in 2010. She’s sold out shows in the UK, North America, Australia, Europe, and Japan. She’s a global phenomenon, and one of the most powerful female artists in the world. But just like every girl in the world, she loves to dress up…

From glitter skeleton corsets and white pleather go–go boots to bubble dresses and chain mail hoods, Lady Gaga exploded on the international fashion scene almost as quickly as she burst onto the music scene.

In this lavishly illustrated style guide, Lizzy Goodman, a music and fashion writer for Rolling Stone, Elle and New York Magazine, explores the fashion chameleon that is Gaga. Loaded with 120 brilliant colour and black and white images, you'll see the many faces of Lady Gaga and the impact of her style on art and fashion.

With chapters covering everything from her dabble in the burlesque and bondage chic to her penchant for architectural and origami-inspired outfits, Gaga has never shied away from exposing herself. And since fashion is never just about the clothes, there are gorgeously illustrated chapters that cover her hair and nail art, make–up, shoes, accessories and tattoos-all of which play an essential role in the Haus of Gaga.

So who is the girl fishing in 8–inch heels? Who is the singer in the blood-drenched bodysuit? Who is the woman behind the sunglasses? Now is your chance to find out.

Review:

• ‘Look’ magazine: "lushly illustrated"; "Super-Fan Must-Have"

•‘GT’ (Gay Times): “Goodman manages to spin an impressive yarn throughout what is basically a walk through her wardrobe… with commentary that impressively draws on Foucault, Bowie and Edgar Allan Poe.”
