Lady GaGa's Style Started Long Ago...

On Sunday night, I found myself flipping through the channels becoming increasingly annoyed because there is never anything on television.  Well, for some odd reason I stopped on the movie Beetlejuice that I used to watch when I was a kid.  I had forgotten about all the outlandish fashion in the movie! I realized that Lady GaGa's fashion sense was outdone long ago by Winona Ryder and Catherine O'Hara in Beetlejuice.  O'Hara donning a leather glove head band and Ryder wearing a big floppy hat with a black lacy veil had me realizing that maybe Lady GaGa got most of her ideas from this particular movie!

I re-saw that movie just a few months ago and agree that the fashion in it was fun. A little self-mocking perhaps, but fun.

I love that last photo of Lydia. Seriously, movies from the 80's/early 90's had the most outrageous fashion sense.

Very true, lol...it really is a strange movie......and you are right. Even with Direct TV and 350+ channels...theres never anything "on"

Oh my gosh I totally forgot about that. Gaga is totally a remake of beetlejuice style. And I was thinking, finally something different. I'm a little creeped out now. Maybe her next style will be shrinking her head eek.

my socks are from ASOS - they deliver to the US but I'd try looking somewhere local to you as they are pretty common. They were £6. xx
