With ‘Born This Way’ destined for a long stay in the album charts the plethora of books about this particular enigmatic popstar continues to grow.
Back in 2005, struggling songstress Stefani Germanotta – half-crazed from hunger and one bad trip – reinvented herself as Lady Gaga, a fearless, attention-craving alter-ego determined to write and wear whatever she pleased. Once unleashed, Gaga’s arsenal of eye-catching, jaw-dropping looks changed the face of pop culture forever, inspiring reverence and revulsion in equal measure, and helping to make her one of the most influential celebrities on the planet.
This book pays tribute to her own unbridled form of self-expression, showcasing each of her most compelling looks – from glinting space suits to frothy lace fancies to glitter-bone corsets to blood-stained ensembles fresh from the abattoir. Lavishly illustrated with more than 150 colour photos, Strange and Beautiful reveals the concepts, clothes, directors and designers that help Lady Gaga push fashion to its very limits.
