Another Night, Another Barely-There Armani Catsuit for Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga exploded onto the American Idol stage last night donning a dazzling fishnet ensemble from Giorgio Armani while performing her hit new single, “Alejandro.” The Italian designer is a clear favorite of the statement-making star, whose out-of-this-world Grammy dress and stellar Monster Ball tour costumes were Armani’s creations. “To complement the spirit of Lady Gaga herself, I have let my imagination run free, and the outfit I have created for her for American Idol is pure fantasy,” the designer said in a release. The ever-busy chanteuse–who also performed at the Met Gala in a sheer Armani catsuit earlier this week–took to the stage in a silk mesh bodysuit, featuring embroidered Chantilly lace as well as sparkling crystals and jet beading. The look was completed with a silk organza cape, a dark hood and matching black patent stiletto boots. Though Lady Gaga looked absolutely amazing with her skin-tight look, we have to wonder if the dramatic ensemble was approved by the judges or deemed to be a “little pitchy.” Tell us: What do you think about Lady Gaga’s Giorgio Armani costume?

Lady Gaga is really a man.

I think Lady Gaga is absolutely amazing. Her voice is truly fantastic and she is not bound by what the norm is. She writes all of her own music and has a huge say in what she does, actually, and I can’t wait to see what she’ll do next.

I didn’t see it but I’ve heard several people say that they changed the channel because they thought it was inappropriate for their children.

Anyone who still watches American Idol is totally lame anyway, why would they like Lady Gaga? “Oh Lord! She’s DIFFERENT, and STRANGE! I don’t understand them-there outfits she wears! I am skeeered of anythin’ different!”

where has USA gone? on

American Idol is suppose to be a Family show and putting people like a a porn wanna be satanic queen on like gaga is absoulutly wrong. Come on America wake up this is no example for our FUTURE (Children) in case you did not get it!!

Like her! on

Ok, I am not a big pop music fan at all, i am a total rock girl!! So it shames me a little to say this, but I actually really like her! Yes her clothes are way over the top. But I like a lot of her songs, which she writes herself (mostly anyway, there may be a few exceptions)! Which is a lot, most pop stars don’t! And she can actually sing!!! She doesn’t cover her voice up with a lot of computerized special effects or whatever. I say rock on! :p But seriously I think she’s successfully squashed any rumors that she was a guy, so I’d appreciate it if she started to put some more clothes on.

I think the judges showed their respect ( & good taste) for gaga by exiting during her performance. They were there to enjoy & give a standing ovation to Harry Connick. Shame on Idol for allowing her outfit & floor groveling & banning the Lane Bryant ad in week’s past. Hypocrites!

Why on earth was Lady Gaga chosen to perform on a night where the theme was Big Bands? I do not watch Idol faithfully, but I thought they had guests who at least were in the same genre as the theme…what genre is Lagy Gaga???

I loved the look and despite the fact that Fox edited Gaga’s performance it was still enjoyable.

People objecting to Lady Gaga do not understand the music industry has changed since they were kids. If you are paying 100,200, 250 for a ticket – it better be a show, not just someone in dreadlocks and bluejeans sitting on a stool doing vocals before 40,000 people. Gaga is a performer on the cutting edge, meeting the expectation of promoters and avid fans alike.
