Style Investigation : Lady Gaga — Fashion Icon or Fashion Criminal?

Lady Gaga has been known to wow the crowds of both fashionistas and fashion police everwhere since she first stepped onto the music scene. Known for donning outlandish and sometimes microscopic attire, the native New Yorker proves she definitely has an eye for style. The singer herself sees it as all part of the same package, swearing to MTV that when she’s writing her music she’s thinking about what clothes to wear on stage. “Fashion is everything … I want the imagery to be so strong that fans will want to eat and taste and lick every part of us.”

Celebrity stylist Robert Verdi said Gaga’s debut at the 2009 VMAs has her poised to join some of the greatest women in pop music. “I actually love her,” he said. “I think there have been these moments in the canon of fashion history and music history that have been very important and are marked by Cher, Madonna and now Lady Gaga. I think the all-white one [from her VMA performance] is interesting. It’s kind of a modern-day version of Madonna’s ‘Like a Virgin’ [look].”

Her style is, indeed, very different from many celebrities out there, but what do you guys think? Is Lady Gaga a Fashion Icon or Fashion Criminal? Post your thoughts down below.
