When it comes to pushing the limits of fashion (if there truly are any), stylewatchers need look no further than the ever-intriguing Lady Gaga. The singer hit London this week in an array of looks, but it was her half-tuxedo that really caught our attention. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean we liked it. Keep reading to find out if Gaga's look won her this week's Style Superstar, or if fellow bobbed blond Carey Mulligan nabbed the title with a chic red carpet look at the 2010 BAFTAs.
For a woman whose fashion claim to fame includes meat dresses and Kermit the Frog-inspired apparel, we expect more than tame, one-note looks like the ones she sported earlier this week in London. Did jolly ol' England subdue our boundaries-pushing pop star? Luckily, no. By Friday morning, our concerns were put to rest when Gaga stepped out in a half-tuxedo that once again had us talking. Gaga's tux looked like she cut it (albeit, very cleanly) straight off of a mannequin (anyone else notice that the back-side of the pants was M.I.A?), while the white fabric on the sides of her waist made it seem like someone had flipped her large missing pant pockets inside out. Also, what was up with the Inspector Gadget glasses? One outfit, so many questions. Though this outfit lands her in the worst-dressed spot this week, at least she's back to her own style!
As you've probably guessed, Carey was indeed our best-dressed starlet for this week. The newly single star stepped out for the BAFTAs Los Angeles 2010 Britannia Awards, wearing a nude-colored top and a long black skirt by Preen. Carey looked totally elegant, and we loved her pulled back bangs. As for the shocking hue of her shoes, we weren't completely on board with it, but still applaud her efforts to add some contrast.
What do you think of Gaga's half-tuxedo and Carey's winning look?
