Fashionistas (and Madonna!) Go Gaga at Marc Jacobs

In the front row at the Marc Jacobs show on Monday night, fashionistas were abuzz about Lady Gaga’s four costume changes at the MTV awards the night before. “Provocative, daring, uncomfortable. . .fun,” said Joe Zee, Creative Director of Elle. “I don’t know if she will look normal,” he said of her slated appearance at the Marc Jacobs show, “…but she will definitely wear Marc.” And while Madonna made it to her seat before the show started promptly at 8:00 p.m., Lady Gaga, holding hands with Jacobs’s partner Lorenzo Martone, stood watching from the entrance. After the show, she ran straight backstage, telling the waiting photographers, “I need to see Marc first . . . please.” And not only did she find Marc, but she found Madonna as well for an air-kiss and a photo-op. So what did the pop divas think of the show? “I loved it, I loved it, I loved it,” Madonna enthused, while Lady Gaga expounded, “Every season still takes my breath away. It was breathtaking. I love Marc Jacobs. Life is a red carpet, and tonight the red carpet is his.” She continued, “The show was amazing. I love the ballet scenes and the romantic ruffles, the Japanese makeup…When you’re watching Marc Jacobs, life is a stage. I was hyperventilating.” So was the crowd when Lady Gaga took to the stage at the V magazine party later that evening (that Jacobs hosted), leaving her delicate Marc Jacobs black and silver dress behind for a daring red stage costume.
