Bravest Attempt: Lady Gaga as Jo Calderone
We commend Lady Gaga's adventurous spirit and never-ending arsenal of cyberkinetic ensembles. But last night's theme held no variation: she dressed as Jo Calderone (her My Cousin Vinny-channeling male alter ago), and went with it, all night. The look: a white tee and jeans, set off with a greaser hairdo. As a statement in character, it succeeded. As a visual, its novelty grew old, but we're pretty sure Calderone wouldn't show up in a Raf Simons suit—nor would Gaga allow him to. Kudos to her for forcing us along for her gender-bending ride.
