ガガ、メットガラでストリップ

レディー・ガガが、今年のメットガラでストリップを披露し、観客らの目を釘付けにした。

5月7日、米ニューヨーク・メトロポリタン美術館に敷かれたピンクカーペット上で、ガガは、ブランドン・マックスウェルのフクシアピンクのドレスを纏い、5人のダンサー、ブランドン、そしてメイクアップアーティストのサラ・タンノと共に登場した。

今年の同イベントのテーマ「キャンプ:ファッションについてのノート」に沿った、巨大ちょう結びの髪飾りが印象的な、全長8メートル弱のケープドレスで周囲の注目をさらったガガは、その後4パターンもの着替えを見せ周囲を沸かせた。

そして、傘、サングラス、1980年代の黎明期の携帯電話といった小物を用いながらガガは、ノースリーブのピンクドレス、黒のドレス、そして最後に黒のコルセット姿と身を軽くしていき、首元にはティファニーのブルー・ブック・コレクションから28カラットのダイヤモンド蝶のチョーカーが輝いていた。

ちなみに、黒のクリスタル輝く下着にタイツ、ブーツ姿の最終形態のガガは、ピンクの特注ドリンクカートを引っ張るなど、演出にも抜かりは無かった。

同イベント後、デザイナーのマックスウェルは、インスタグラムを通してガガに、長年の友情および夢を現実にしてくれたとして感謝の意を綴っている。

I promise this will be my last #metgala post! But first, I wanted to take a minute to talk about friendship. 10 years ago on the night of the Met Gala I entered through a back door, bags in hand, and helped my friend @ladygaga change in to her performance outfit for her first Met Gala, where she would sing all her hits and dazzle the fashion crowd. 10 years later I walked in the front door hand in hand with her, having had the opportunity to design 4 outfits for her. In between these two nights, which were both momentous for me, a long and wondrous relationship has both sustained me and propelled me to believe I could walk through any door, so long as I did it with integrity and hard work. The world sees the moments on a carpet, the moments on stage, but I’ve been fortunate enough to see the moments behind the curtain that truly define what makes a star a star. There has never been a moment in our friendship where I did not feel that I was supported, that I did not feel that my best interests were put first, where I did not feel anything other than complete love and respect. She has pushed me to be better, to do better, and to achieve my dreams farther than I even could have imagined them to go. We were once two kids that had crazy dreams, a love for the performance and the show, a respect for the craft and those that came before, and now we are two adults who have held hands through many storms, and come out smiling on the other side. Friendship and loyalty are important, especially in our industries, and I’m so blessed to have been witness to the greatest example. Love your friends for who they are, and where they are, ride the ride together, be proud, because no success is worth it without the ones you love. Thank you all so much for your love and kindness this week, grateful would not be a strong enough word for how I truly feel. We had so much fun!
