Lady Gaga’s teacup “accessory” – the next hot trend?

Spl94653_001[2]

Yes, we know, it's another Lady Gaga post. We're sorry. She appears to be doing her level best to turn teacups into fashion accessories at the moment, though, and although some of you touched on this in the comments on our last Gaga post, we still feel the question needs to be asked: what the hell?!

Sorry, no, that wasn't what we meant to ask at all. What we meant to say was, what does everyone think of Lady Gaga's teacup? It's hard for us to honestly describe an innocent teacup as a "crime of fashion", you see, but at the same time, we're kinda hoping it doesn't catch on, as much fun as that would be to see everyone walking around with on.

Of course, this is Lady Gaga we're talking about, and even although she's only been on our radar for a short period of time, this is exactly the kind of thing we've come to expect from her, and the carefully controlled character she's created for herself. What do you think, though? Will carrying a teacup around become the next big trend? Couldn't really be worse than harem pants, after all…

    Seems kind of impractical to me, strangeness aside.

    What do I think? I think it’s a lovely little teacup and I’d be happy to add it to my collection.
    As a fashion accessory, it’s too fancy for workwear, too delicate for clubbing. I vote no.

    Although, as an afterthought, I’m not sure how long the teacup would last.

    “carefully controlled persona”. I like that. I’ve been trying to put my finger on why Gaga rubs me the wrong way and that’s it. I never care for control freaks. And she’s jumped in with both feet declaring herself a style icon and has done nothing to earn such a title. Wearing a designer’s clothes makes the DESIGNER an icon, not YOU, Miss Gaga. Bah. And you know how I feel about the teacup.

    The teacups are lovely.
    Is it just me, or is her mouth a little freaky looking? Is it always that way, or is did the photographer just happen to catch her doing something wierd with her lips?

    Forget the teacup, what is with the; makeup, glasses, hat and odd top she has on?

    Her lips are normal, but only the centre of them have been painted to give her this chinadoll/1920s pout. If you look closely you can see her lips… Looks weird.

  • I actually rather like the hat! I think those of you commenting on the impracticality of the teacup make good points – in my hands, that would be an ex-teacup very, very soon!

    Fish lips!
    I think it was meant to pay homage to the geisha look. If you look closely you can see that only a small portion of her lips has the dark lipstick on it and the rest of her mouth is made to appear the same shade as her skin.

    On the subject of the lips, I actually wrote a post on this for Dollface yesterday, which has a close-up of her face with this lipstick, if anyone’s interested:

    Can somebody tell me why she is always being led by someone in recent pictures? As in “if I don’t physically lead her, she will fall over or go the wrong way”. Has she turned blind or senile or something??!! (At least that would explain her choice of clothes…)

    She’s all ‘style’ and no substance.
    If she didn’t have a stylist she’d be nothing! She isn’t wearing the clothes because she likes them, it’s all for the publicity & that is what annoys me. It would be fine if she honestly dressed like that in the comfort of her own home, or just hanging out with friends but she patently doesn’t.. one big publicity stunt.

    That’s the most conservative outfit you’ve caught her in. Though the make up and tea cup are really weird. I’m sticking with my Ms. Magoo comment from a previous sighting. She keeps looking like a young senile eccentric.

    She’s trying too hard.

    Am I not seeing something? It kinda just looks like she’s holding a teacup…? Unless that IS that accessory?

    Juli – yes, the teacup is the accessory: she carries one everywhere.

    Freaky shades. Freaky lipstick. The teacup looks relatively normal. Perhaps it’s an homage to the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland.

    Suspect she subscribes to the “there’s no such thing as bad publicity” school of thought.

    I was going to say she must be f*^$#@d in the head. Bust Celeste’s Ms Magoo comment is much more polite.

    aside from the fact it looks weird, wouldn’t it just be so inconvenient carrying it around (and not dropping it)?

    Maybe the teacup is glued to the saucer?

    One word for the teacup: LAME!
    As for her entire style, it’s just for shock value, and the worst part is – it’s all been seen before. Ah, hopefully, she won’t last…

    I would love to add that tea cup to my kitchenware collection. But as a fashion accessory? I don’t think so. I can’t imagine people holding tea cups everytime.

    So contrived! She’s about as stylish as Dot Cotton in ‘Enders! If she believed in her “style” herself, it wouldn’t be so bad, but she looks so rigid & uncomfortable when u see her – NOT convincing! Lady no-no!!

    Well on the plus side at least a teacup is lower maintenance than a pooch in a handbag.
