Lady Gaga – who refuses to be censored – was voluntarily “filtered” during her recent appearance on American TV talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live. Her gaganess showed up in a voluminous white dress, cape and matching hat that looked like bleached (and controversial!) karakul lambskin – but was actually sewn from coffee filters.
Gaga’s frothy white outfit is a creation from the Gareth Pugh Fall 2014 collection, a young Brit designer who often turns to unusual materials such as plastic construction sheeting and paper. When asked about her upcycled dress, Lady Gaga told Kimmel, “You can do anything with your crazy ideas if you just put your mind to it.”
Gaga has rocked feathers, shells, plastic bubbles and of course, meat. But her poker face makes it tough to tell if she knows that coffee filters may be carcinogenic.
