First she took the pop world, then became the queen of fashion, so what’s next for Lady Gaga to conquer? Apparently, the holidays.
This Thursday, ABC is premiering the much-anticipated special “A Very Gaga Thanksgiving,” but as of tonight, Barney’s is ensuring it will also be a very Gaga Christmas. The NYC mega-retailer transformed its 60th street entrance and 5th floor men’s department (a whopping 5,500 square feet) into Gaga’s Workshop, a holiday funhouse of fashion and trinkets designed by Nicola Formichetti, Eli Sudbrack, and Christophe Hamaide Pierson.
Walk through the Gaga-monster façade into the department store’s eight sections of themed shops, piously referred to as “Santa’s grotto”, ranging from a jewelry store set inside a giant spider to a cosmetics cave called the boudoir, modeled after the pop star’s favorite wig. And while the world’s reigning diva is known for donning $4,100 heels (don’t worry, they’re for sale) stocking stuffers and edibles will only set you back about $6.
In anticipation of the little monster madness, Barney’s will pull an all-nighter through November 22nd, before returning to regular store hours.
In keeping with the holiday spirit, which has rarely included chocolate skulls ($68) and claw-shaped stockings ($65) before, 25% of everything purchased will go towards the Born This Way Foundation. The charity, founded by Gaga and her mother (does that make her Mother Mother Monster?) helps teens to build self-confidence in the age of extreme bullying.
