Lady Gaga undone was Stefani Germanotta and very brunette

“Before there was a whole lot of styling and theatrics there was a brunette girl with a very good voiceWe all thought that the entire world has seen these early Lady Gaga videos, but are constantly amazed to discover that so many have not.Before there were the outrageous couture costumes, the high budget “Telephone” video, and a whole lot of thought to personal branding, Lady Gaga was Stefani Germanotta. She was a very talented singer and pianist with not a very terribly distinctive look other than looking like any girl, every girl, anywhere.But boy, could she sing.The question is would she have made her enormous impact in the music world as a stringy haired brunette with no discernible fashion style? Maybe not as easily or as quickly.The point of this is to understand the whole package that makes up brand YOU!We’re not asking you to turn yourself into some fantastical diva like Lady Gaga, unless as Andre Leon Talley says, “you are Lady Gaga.”But YOU do want to put some thought in how you look.Take a peek at early Lady Gaga before she became the new diva of pop in her early videos below.

Jennifer Garner wears polished Mommy clothes

I’ll Have What She’s Having: What to wear to the playground? An easy mom uniform that works.What’s really amazing about Jennifer Garner is that she looks so normal when off the red carpet.We spotted her at the Milk + Bookies First Annual Story Time Celebration in Los Angeles event and although her outfit is far from exciting it does have the right polished element to make any busy mom’s play wardrobe work: a shrunken blazer.

Kristen Stewart in The Runaways get the rocker look

“Kristen Stewart in The Runaways get the rocker look.New production still of Kristen Stewart from “The Runaways”It’s hard to not have a girl crush on rock and roll legend Joan Jett.And, for a new generation, it’s hard to not be in love with Kristen Stewart.When we got our hands on this brand new movie still of Kristen in “The Runaways,” we had to share it with you. But then we were thinking that if you loved Joan Jett from the get go, it was time to take the 70′s/80′s rock band vibe up a bit with some big girl glam.mediumSo, why not try a Bop Basics Short Sleeve V Neck Burnout T-Shirt that still has the tight rocker look but a little more sheer and sexy?Instead of found and curated tons of silver charms and chains, try a more designer version like the Alice + Olivia Long Crystal Chain Necklace… we love this necklace and can think of sooo many ways to wear it and instantly update our wardrobe.>> Did you remember to SHOP today?You might want to get a punked out shag, some eyeliner, and maybe a black Fender Standard Stratocaster and a few solid years of guitar lessons. Or try some air guitar in your bedroom first while wearing your old school but suddenly sexy black hipster briefs.Don’t forget the rocker attitude, that’s priceless.”
