Aside from those occasions she rolled around in gaudy wheelchairs, Lady Gaga has largely avoided the fashion spotlight since her injury-prompted sabbatical. And to be fair, a break from disco wigs and foot-high heels made out of broccoli is for the best.
What this means, though, is that the odd batch of paparazzi photos featuring Gaga looking less than crazy get treated as though she were wearing vegetable footwear after all. Is that a pointy carrot or a stiletto heel? Who knows?! Case in point, recent photos of Gaga:
Aside from the possibly controversial practice of bridesmaid cleavage, she looks just like the rest of the bridal party. Lovely, and the floral headpiece is a cute touch without being overstated in the classic Gaga “I just broke a vase on my forehead and these are the remnants” kind of way.
And, though it may seem hard to believe, there are other photos of Gaga dressed “normal” out there. Strap yourself in, because it’s a journey into a whole other DIMENSION…of sensible clothes.
Dressed like any other high school formal dance attendee.
Then again, who didn’t in high school?
You can still tell she’s quirky though: Look at all those bracelets!
Also, do you see coquettish shades of Zooey Deschanel?
To be fair, though, she’s smizing years before Tyra trademarked the idea. And the slightly windswept hair is très Rachel Greene.
Her role: anonymous, bad-girl “classmate.” While ogling some boys swimming, she smokes and laughs and swigs something that, given her character, probably isn’t just Coke from a Coke bottle. That’s about it. (Watch here.)
Watch her eat a salad and get slightly agitated — that’s acting for you. Also, marvel at that Jerseylicious tan.
Which is fair enough, because if you cover a bikini in jewels and shit you’ll either sink like a stone mid-swim or just give yourself tetanus once they’ve inevitably rusted over.
I mean, there’s not even a crazy print on that sarong. Gaga’s not even trying.
To be fair, though, taking a spinning class with Terry Richardson ups the crazy more than precarious stilettos and a live crab in your hair.
Like this one. (The team of hairstylists who styled that “bed head hairdo” just so are out of frame, along with a makeup artist responsible for the subtle eyeliner and lipstick. After all, it takes a little bit of makeup to take a good no-makeup shot.)
After all, hipsters are normal now. THEY JUST ARE.
