Uhh maybe we didn't get the memo on changing what the word "glamour" means? Lady Gaga and Lena Dunham donned some pretty hideous ensembles for the usually glittering and glam 23rd Annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards in New York City last night.
Typically an understated and elegant event, these two 27-year-old bucked with tradition and wore their a-typical fashions -- Gaga went with ghostly white concoction and Lena opted for yet another unflattering ensemble.
Gaga, whose ARTPOP album finally drops today, looked like the Narnia's White Witch-meets-'80s-power suit-wearing-lawyer-meets-Like-a-Virgin-Madonna -- and then dropped in a vat of powder.
The Do What U Want singer was one of the night's honorees, and said in her speech. "I do not look like that when I wake up in the morning," she said. Gaga added that despite being famous, "my true talent is not the clothes, and not the music. I really feel that what I am best at is seeing the potential in other people." The 27-year-old then referred to her campaign against bullying among young people, and referred to her young fan Jamey Rodemeye, who committed suicide in 2011.
"Do you really know how your child feels when they are home at night?" the singer asked the crowd.
While Mother Monster turned heads with her eerie look, the Girls creator opted for a dark design. Dunham shrouded herself in a geometric cut-out dress that looked basically like a paper bag on her figure. While we didn't like the dress, we do love her eyes and her subtly 1920s style. So at least there's that.
The night's top honoree was Barbra Streisand, who Lifetime Achievement Award, and told the audience that she was lucky to be born with a good singing voice, but "That voice ultimately allowed me to speak out and have my opinions heard."
The 71-year-old, then used her weight to give a vote of confidence to Hillary Rodham Clinton who was a presenter during the show, "There's never been a woman president, but I hope that will change very soon -- hint, hint! And we really need her now."
Hills in 2016?! Let's cross our fingers!
