Lady Gaga's stylish little sister, aka Natali Germanotta, has kept a relatively low profile since her big sis shot to fame with "Just Dance" in 2008, but the budding fashion designer wouldn't have it any other way.
The 19-year-old college student is currently enrolled at Parson's New School for Design in NYC, and she recently opened up to Teen Vogue on everything from her love of school, to that outlandish outfit Gaga wore to her HS graduation last year.
On her dedication to Parson's:
- "For me, college is less about getting drunk and more about learning what you need for your career. For now I'd like to stay in school."
On Gaga showing up at Natali's high school graduation (held at a Catholic church) in a nude unitard covered in rhinestones, paired with a black beekeeper hat:
- "The teachers were like, 'Oh my God, I can't handle this family. She asked me, 'Should I dress really conservative and look not like myself, or should I do it over-the-top and freak everybody out?' And I was like, 'The latter, definitely the latter.'"
And one of the many perks of having Lady Gaga as a big sis? “Whenever I wear something crazy and my dad gives me a hard time, I say, ‘Well, at least I’m not walking out on the street with red pasties,’ and he’ll be like, ‘Good point.’”
