Fashion is a tool of self-expression, and lately Lady Gaga has been expressing herself by scaring the ever-living crap out of Europe. Not content to horrify Sam into a coma with her fuzzy chicken mask in Berlin last week, Lady Gaga is trolling the pediophobes (people who are afraid of dolls) with her latest get up: A giant, walking, creepy murder doll.


In her dress made out of yellowed ribbons, dripping porcelain makeup, and two wigs, she looks like a scary Victorian doll of my grandma’s that had to be put in a box in the closet whenever I visited, because it was the scariest thing ever.

Jonathan Coulton has a great song about Lady Gaga’s outfit. It’s called “Creepy Doll,” and it will be in my head for the rest of the week:

And there’s a creepy doll
That always follows you
It’s got a ruined eye
That’s always open

And there’s a creepy doll
That always follows you
It’s got a pretty mouth
To swallow you whole

And when you come home late the doll is waiting up for you
And when you fix a snack the doll says it would like one too
The doll is in your house and in your room and in your bed
The doll is in your eyes and in your arms and in your head and you are crazy


But in between outfits designed to give the fashion writers of the world spooky Halloween nightmares, on Saturday she went to London nightclub G-A-Y painted white and wearing a flowing, empire gown like a Jane Austen heroine.


Near the end of the performance, she decided the gown was too much, so she took it off and just did the rest of the performance “totally starkers,” in the words of the Daily Mirror. (We love the way British people say things, like “totally starkers” for “completely naked.”)
