Terry Richardson has released a beautiful series of pictures yesterday, capturing Lady Gaga before, during and after The Rolling Stones “One More Shot” concert:
… in the car, on her way to soundcheck, wearing Saint Laurent SS13 look, accessorized with custom made MORDEKAI cage adorned with chains and her trademark cherub.
You’ll remember Gaga wearing MORDEKAI Crown Fruit and Flower Wreath and Rose Armor Rings & Flower Bracelets for the Guggenheim and Harrods FAME perfume launch events.
… backstage after the concert, in her custom made Ray Brown Fashion catsuit.
I had a chance to chat with Rhonda Zayas, graphic and fashion designer, illustrator and muse for rock fashion legend, Ray Brown:
“Ray Brown has been designing stage wear for the world’s most iconic rock bands for several decades. His clothing has graced Bon Jovi, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Muse and now Gaga, amongst many many others. The genre “rock fashion” would not be in existence if it were not for Ray Brown. High street fashion has been particularly inspired from his work with Judas Priest (leather and studs). The patchwork coat he created for Jon Bon Jovi is now with the Smithsonian, his work is legendary”.
“Particularly regarding the design for Lady Gaga, she wanted something “70′s rock”, “Ziggy Stardust” and what Ray does, as he does with all of his clients is to take the artist’s idea and create it into their “dream clothing”. I believe the pictures say volumes as to how comfortable she was in the piece created by Ray, and that is a direct reflection of him being the master of stage wear, which is an entirely different beast than everyday wear, or even high fashion. Stage wear needs to withstand the rigors of a performance/tour, and Ray specializes in that niche of fashion. The materials used to make the garment include stretch black velvet, and silver and gold leather encrusted with thousands of Swarovski crystals”.
… looove this one. Gaga and Terry backstage.

A few hours ago, Gaga tweeted a photo of herself, revealing the first part of her Princess High halloween costume: The Crown.
The bespoke piece was designed especially for Gaga by London based costume designer and milliner Lara Jensen, based around a traditional pronged crown design incorporating marijuana leaf detailing.
The crown was hand sculpted in Lara’s studio in London, then cast and finished in real gold, and finally hand set with fern green crystals and semi-precious stones to catch the light.
Below the original design and studio captures I got a minute ago. EXCLUSIVELY. For. You!
The first time Gaga showcased Lara Jensen‘s art, it was “The Widow’s Veil” back in May in Hong Kong.

After Philip Treacy Spring 2013 Fashion Show, Gaga was photographed leaving the Royal Courts of Justice wearing one of the looks from the show, and Michael’s iconic glove.
If you were, same as me, growing with Michael’s music, I don’t have to add the white sequined blazer with pearl embellished lapel designed by Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush (MJ’s costume designers during 25 years), was worn by Michael back in 1991 for the Oscars.
For those of you who asked me about the availability of the collection (or the Mickey Ears Headpiece in particular), I’m not able to tell you any concrete information right now, but will definitely keep you posted!
