Lady Gaga Wears Custom Alexis Bittar and Vintage Swear Alternative in The artRAVE Tour Book

The next look from the artRAVE tour book, shot by Ruth Hogben, we will talk about, is the one Lady Gaga currently uses as her Twitter header:

White straitjacket, accessorized with full S&M mask, covered with Swarovski crystals, bracelets and crystal encrusted neck brace, all custom made for Gaga by Alexis Bittar.

“She embraces extremes and understands the fusion of art and fashion. That’s the beauty of working with someone like Lady Gaga”, the Brooklyn based fashion and fine jeweler shared with Gaga Fashionland.

The rest of the look consisted of Leg Avenue Opaque Thigh High Nylon Stocking With Satin Ruffle Trim And Bow, and a pair of legendary fuzzy fur Kiss Boots with huge reflective vinyl monster teeth – a rare 90s vintage treasure by Swear Alternative.

Thanks to for ARTSIMS the help.

Interview for Good Morning America: Lady Gaga in Dean Quinn

Here’s the 3rd write-up from our “FAME” Interviews series (more to come).

Lady Gaga appeared on Good Morning America to chat with Lara Spencer about “FAME”, it’s sexy smell created “for any woman that wants to go home to her husband and lay down and feel like a queen”, about the smell she associates with being up on the Born This Way Ball tour stage and more… (watch it HERE).

The stunning hot pink crepe long-sleeve floor-length dress with open back and pintucked side panel detail from Central Saint Martins graduate, Northern Irish fashion designer Dean Quinn‘s sophomore collection (actually one of his personal favourites from this collection).

You can see the fourteen-look Fall 2012 presentation on Style.

When asked about the inspiration behind his collection, Dean said he was “looking at the royalty… the regality within gypsy culture and how their fascination with designer clothing drives them to adorn themselves at these huge events”.

The elaborate crown Gaga wore, was custom made by Brooklyn based jewelry designer Alexis Bittar, who needs no further introduction here on Gaga Fashionland as Gaga is his longtime fan (the last piece Alexis created for her was the hand beaded mesh neck collar Gaga wears in the “FAME” commercial).

I asked Alexis about the one-of-a-kind “FAME” bottle gold toned cap inspired headpiece, an exclusive sketch of which I’m just about to show you. He told me he “wanted to design a futuristic crown that resembled metallic thorns fit for a queen”.
