There are few things I enjoy more than seeing what that kook Lady Gaga will come up with next in the fashion department. So, you can imagine my elation when I found out that this year's Christmas theme at Barneys New York will revolve around my favorite pop star and her eccentric style.
Women's Wear Daily recently reported that the upscale department store will be decked out with displays featuring Gaga as the queen of a unicorn-filled universe, as well as images of the singer as a giant spider. (Just think, if the Lady were really an arachnid, what kind of shoes would she wear? Oh, the possibilities!)
Among the items that will be available at the Gaga Workshop are lollipops shaped like a disco stick (I guess we're supposed to use our imaginations, here), "Poker Face" chips made out of chocolate, press-on nails, chocolate skulls, dramatic hair bows, Gaga-inspired snow globes and last, but certainly not least, a pair of $4,100 shoes. Let's be honest here, if you're going to splurge like that on a pair of towering shoes, you may as well throw in a bunion splint and some orthotics while you're at it. You or the gift-recipient will need them.
Additionally, Gaga and the Barneys team appear to have designed a Christmas stocking perfect for yours truly. How I would love to wake up on Dec. 25 to find a black patent leather stocking shaped like a stiletto boot filled with all of my favorite goodies: a new Bunion Aid, some fresh orthotics and a bottle of Ketel One to make a fresh batch of holiday Cosmopolitans.
Perhaps the best part is that you can feel good about shelling out on these Gaga-centric items, since 25 percent of the proceeds will go to the singer's Born This Way Foundation. The organization works toward empowering youth and building equality.
"My mother and I have initiated a passion project," Gaga said in the statement. "Together we hope to establish a standard of bravery and kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment."
Visitors to the Barneys flagship store will get to see the displays unveiled in all of their Gaga glory on Nov. 21. Now, people can get a sneak peek by visiting gagasworkshop.com.
