Lady Gaga Style Bible is a vibrant photographic fantasy storybook: it is part fashion show pictorial, part retrospective homage - a complete guide to Monster Fashion, categorised from A to Z. Style subjects include 'Attention to Detail', 'The Retro Nod', 'Hair and Hats', and 'Meat and Greet', an expansive look at her eye-popping Franc Fernandez designer creation made from raw beef and worn at the 2010 VMA awards. Stunning photographs superbly document her unrivaled artistic craft - a perfect modern amalgamation of glam rock inspirations like David Bowie and Freddie Mercury and fashion influences Donatella Versace and Alexander McQueen. The images in this collection vividly capture Lady Gaga's complex persona: undoubtedly riveting, provocative, and disturbing, they show a beauty that comes from power and total confidence that draws the audience in and an ugliness and hardness that perplexes and fends off foes. Taken together they also provide a running commentary on the intersection of culture, sexuality, music, technology and performance art. Lady Gaga Style Bible is an exceptional publication timed perfectly to capture a star at the peak of her career and the forefront of an artistic revolution.
