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?

What were the Idol producers thinking? It was just plain weird. Ridiculous performance especially in Frank Sinatra week. I had much rather seen Harry Connick Jr. perform twice. He has talent and personality and is entertaining to watch.

She is absolutely an amazing talented artist, who is not only original but a true artist!! All you idiots who don’t know what an awesome voice she has, shouldn’t post a comment!! Her performances are original and magical, and her outfits are more original than beyonce,christina and even madonnna in the early years…Lady GAGA will be around many years to come, and I can’t wait to see what happens over the next 10 years!!!

She was great last night, and definitely out performed any other celebrity who’s been on the show so far… Thanks gaga for everything you do!!

I love Lady Ga Ga!

I turned it/her off. Not appropriate for primetime TV. Tacky, Tacky, Tacky!

I laugh at everyone who says Lady Gaga doesn’t have talent. Lady Gaga has more talent than anyone else in the music industry.

GAGA’s OUTFIT WAS TOTALLY UNCALLED FOR ON A PRIMETIME, TWEEN VIEWING AUDIENCE. Where in the H did she come from anyway? Mars? I have to admit she is a good singer and performer, but….DO AWAY WITH THE OUTFITS-THEY’RE UNNECESSARY – talent prevails!


“To Be Great Is To Be Misunderstood!” For beauty is TRULY in the eye of the beholder.

I like Lady Gaga and her Armani outfits — she has a great voice and puts on an exceptional performance. Those that hate her, are not lovers of artistic abilities.

The woman is all about self indulgence. She was off-key on Idol and could have dressed better for a family show on network television. I think they could have chosen someone more capable of singing something more relevant than “Alejandro”. Blech.
