Going Gaga for Wimbeldon

To say Lady Gaga has conquered the music world is a an obvious statement.  She has an amazing voice and her message is uplifting.  Not to mention the girl puts on quite a live show (I was at one of her concerts last year in Vancouver - it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to).  Somewhat shockingly, she is also all over the fashion world.  She was recently honoured by the CFDA and she has walked the runways of Paris.  I say this is shocking because her style is wayyyyy out there on a consistent basis (hello, meat dress!) and my thought was the fashion elite would not want anything to do with her.  Well, I have been wrong before and I am wrong on that one!

Gaga's stylist, Nichola Formichetti is a big name in the fashion world right now, and so is Alex Noble, Gaga's designer who recently outfitted American tennis player Bethanie Mattek-Sands.   Not only did she sport a tennis ball inspired dress to a recent pre-Wimbledon event, but she also wore a pretty funky outfit on the court the other day.

Wearing a tennis ball, fringe and spike-adorned warm-up jacket before her first round match.

Full back view of the jacket.  Not sure if it was a lucky jacket, since she ended up losing the match.

Gaga has conquered music and fashion, so why not tennis?!?  As a fashion lover, and ticket holder for the US Open held in NYC in August, I'm excited to see what Bethanie has in store for her next Grand Slam appearance.
