Go Gaga Over Gaga’s Accessories at New Vegas Exhibition
By Lauren Parker
Lady Gaga’s fashion went unplugged in “A Star is Born,” but don’t be fooled. This glittering star was born turning heads with her over-the-top, crazy-accessories, meat-dress wearing self (remember, this is a woman who wore not one, not two, but four outfits to the recent Met Gala)!
To our delight, Gaga has opened her personal closet to the public for the first time ever, and the best of the best has spilled out. At the new Haus of Gaga Museum at the Park MGM in Las Vegas, her most iconic accessories and fashion pieces are on display in their full, campy glory. The exhibit coincides with the second leg of her two-year Vegas residency, running through November 2019.
"Lady Gaga and I wanted this experience to reflect the most iconic moments the Haus of Gaga has conceptualized during her career,” said Nicola Formichetti, Haus of Gaga member and curator of the exhibit, in a press release. “Our vision for Haus of Gaga/Las Vegas is a space that will visually immerse fans into Lady Gaga’s most iconic moments that will leave them in awe.”
Since Gaga’s collection of outrageousness is pretty bottomless, the museum rotate her items over time, with pieces from her decade-long career. There will be 50 items on display and they include her greatest fashion hits. Think: her meat dress from the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, her iridescent Versace bodysuit from the 2017 Super Bowl performance, and her Armani Prive galaxy gown from the 2010 Grammys. Accessories include her cigarette sunglasses and telephone hat from her "Telephone" video co-starring Beyoncé.
“Haus of Gaga is a love letter to our Little Monsters,” said Nicola Formichetti on Instagram. “We wanted to create a space to celebrate the art that @ladygaga and the Little Monsters have made together and look forward to what’s next.”
