Lady Gaga to Intern for British Hat Designer Philip Treacy
She’s one of the most successful recording artists of the last decade, so you might think Lady Gaga could settle down and stop looking for additional work — but the pop star, who was already moonlighting as Polaroid’s creative director, is adding “fashion designer intern” to her list of jobs.
Reportedly, Ms. Gaga will be working for British hat maven Philip Treacy, whose chapeaus have memorably graced the domes of Princess Beatrice, Sarah Jessica Parker, and others. According to Treacy, he’s already met with Gaga to discuss the details.
“This is what happened,” Treacy told Us Weekly. “One Monday morning, four burly bodyguards arrived — Lady Gaga’s security team — to check out the security of the building. I looked at them as if to say, ‘What?! Who is going to take a pot shot at Lady Gaga?’ Anyway, she is young, talented and peculiar — which I like.”
Gaga’s love of fashion has played a major part in her career thus far, so it’s only natural that she’d parlay her fame into a field that’s obviously close to her heart. One can only imagine the headgear this partnership will produce.
