Gaga oooh la la

Barneys flagship store on Madison Avenue have turned a whole floor into gaga land - Lady Gaga's Workshop to be precise; selling accessories, make-up, jewellery, apparel, sweet treats and toys. Gaga and her fashion director, Nicola Formichetti created something that definitely defines Gaga's style along with a Christmas twist.

The floor itself is adorned with different brightly coloured geometric shapes. There is a huge statue in the middle of a “popart-esque” Lady Gaga with huge yellow curling nails and she is lying in a bed of glittering shared glass. Around the rest of the floor there is all sorts of things ranging from a huge spider with stick black and yellow legs and a gaga head on the top and a huge red and black GAGA sign.

I didn’t personally buy anything as it’s not my kinda thing but it was definitely worth a visit so go see it if you’re in New York over Christmas!

25 percent of all sales will go toward the recently launched Lady Gaga Born This Way Foundation which is a non-profit charitable organisation that will “lead youth into a braver new society where each individual is accepted and loved as the person they were born to be.”

New York New York


I've just got back from a trip to New York with my University course; it was so amazing to go at Christmas time - as you can imagine the whole of Manhattan was blanketed with lights and decorations! The Christmas tree above is outside the Rockefeller Centre (Center if you're american), it was gorgeous!

I'm going to do a couple of posts about my time in NY but for now here is a few more pictures...
