Lady Gaga, Paparazzi: from George Michael to the Met

Lady Gaga is everywhere, and she's the cover story for this week's New York Magazine. I was watching the music video "Paparazzi" and couldn't help but notice that one of the outfits (shown below) looked a lot like one I remember from another music video made almost two decades ago.

Does anyone remember the runway show in George Michael's "Too Funky" music video? I believe that it's none other than one of the fantastic creations by designer Thierry Mugler.

Because my screen shots were so low quality, I found a better photo. I believe this was the same piece that was featured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's show Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy.

    I'd caught that too. also, the big feathered head wear that Linda Evangelista is wearing looks a lot like the "birdsnest" Gaga wore for some awards show, i think. Glad I wasn't the only one to catch on, and didn't Tyra look so young in the video now? lol, I'm getting too old....

    I already knew she owned that suit,
    yes it is the one from the video clip.
    As far as i know the original one.

    She also owns this one:

    I'm not sure if she really owns them,
    but i was watching a show and lady gaga was on and showed some of her fave outfits. And these too were among them.
    This was over a year ago.. x3
