LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The 2010 Grammy Awards had its highest ratings in six years, and many would argue that Lady Gaga’s fashion was a big reason why.
Lady Gaga was the talk of the red carpet. She arrived in a three-dimensional spiraling silvery dress that was developed in collaboration with Giorgio Armani. The orbital dress was encrusted in Swarovski crystals, and was paired with silver wedges, a blonde wig, and a star-like ornament that she carried in her hand.
“We hear Lady Gaga’s music everywhere we go. It is like a soundtrack of our times,” Giorgio Armani explained in a press release. “In addition to her formidable songwriting skills, she is a modern fashion phenomenon. I am delighted to be creating these outfits on such an important night for her, the Grammys, and I wish her the best of luck.”
“I am honored to be wearing Armani this evening,” Gaga wrote in the statement. “The series of pieces Mr. Armani created for me are truly iconic; they represent not only beautiful fashion, but my spirit and essence as an artist. Mr. Armani is a fashion legend, and tonight would not have been the same without his touch, and his wonderful team,” Gaga continued.
Giorgio Armani Prive dressed Lady Gaga exclusively for the night. Her looks included a silver lightning bolt silver number while she was seated in the audience and her outfit for her special live stage performance duet with Elton John, which consisted of a sparkling green bodysuit with oversized shoulders.
“I’m just so happy, I can’t say enough and Elton was so amazing and the performance was really truly magical,” Gaga told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush backstage after the Grammys. “I had been fantasizing about this performance piece for a while and we got to do it… and I’m just really truly floored.”
Lady Gaga walked away with two Grammy wins – which brought the singer to tears.
“I’m so… I can’t believe it, we won two Grammys earlier today… I’m just completely floored. And I’ve ruined all of my make up right before the show,” Lady Gaga told Billy.
“How?” Billy asked.
“Crying… I was just so happy… this is not an award for me, it’s for my fans. And I love my fans so much. And I wanted them to know that they should believe in themselves. And I wanted to be everything that they hoped I would be tonight, and that’s what we got to do,” she added.
With such stylish performances as this one, we’re very excited to see what Gaga has up her sleeve for the rest of 2010!
