Lady Gaga showed up in New York this weekend looking like an absolutely fabulous cross between Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O. For once, her outfit is all class with a touch of drama, minus the over the top theatrics. Her nose seems to be shrinking but her hair is more vivacious than ever (even though it’s probably a wig.)
The bag she was spotted carrying was the Versace Medusa Tote, which is STILL not available in stores. You can shop for it online but it hasn’t been released to the pubic yet. The Medusa hardware in gold is Versace’s icon and they seem to be trying to make it as recognizable as Louis Vuitton’s monogram, Herme’s H and Chanel’s double C’s. We like it so we’re in favor of this new trend. So far, the one other celeb who’s been seen with this tote was Selena Gomez during Paris Fashion Week. She was carrying it during a meeting with Anna Wintour so you know this bag has the approval of fashion’s biggest power players. Future It bag for sure!
Earlier this month, Vogue editor Anna Wintour canceled the Miley Cyrus cover shoot. Recently, another former Disney celeb was spotted leaving meeting with the queen of cool. Could this mean Selena is vying for her own Vogue cover? Selena is cute but her baby face just isn’t Vogue material – yet. In a couple of years when her cheekbones come out and she has more well-known music hits or movies in the pipeline, she might be the perfect cover girl.
The bag she was carrying was the Versace Medusa bag. Being an Italian brand, Versace is known for the Roman-influenced art in their designs. The figurehead on the top of the bag is supposed to be from Greek/Roman mythology. Medusa was known for her magical powers and unruly mane of snakes. Medusa is actually Versace’s brand icon and it makes the piece instantly recognizable as a part of the label.
