Vogue might be the haute couture fashion trendsetters for a decidedly well-off group of fashionistas, but in terms of knowing what is truly popular in fashion, do they speak to the public as a whole?
The high-end fashion magazine declared Lady Gaga as the post fashionable public icon of 2010. What do you think? Do you agree with Vogue? Take our poll and let us know!
Vogue is quoted as saying:
“In a field of ten supremely best-dressed contenders that included a Gossip Girl and the First Lady, one Lady stood out, proving that risk-taking can win the popular vote. In a landslide, Lady Gaga received 42 percent of the final results to take Best Dressed of the Year (beating out closest runner-up Blake Lively by 24 percent).”
“Lady Gaga dressed up—way, way up—in lipstick-red latex to shake hands with the Queen, and as a sequin-suspendered Larry King to be interviewed by, well, Larry King. She turned heads in towering headdresses; she wore a hat made of her own hair, a metal bikini at the beach, and, in a look that managed to be both rare and well-done, a dress made of raw meat. Her sense of style thwarted the predictable—it was theatrically avant-garde and wildly, irreverently witty, returning a much-needed sense of humor and unbridled imagination to fashion.”
