I caught the tail end of Oprah’s interview with Lady Gaga a few weeks ago. They had a segment where they toured her wardrobe and I was delighted to discover that Gaga has a bit of crafter in her! Not that I was really surprised. Anyone with that artistic vision is bound to have a penchant for the handmade.
Remember the disco bra from the Just Dance video? She made that. Oh yeah. This particular creation may not be anything like what Lady Gaga would wear, but I've taken the idea and made suit me.

We have statement necklaces, statemtent hair pieces, statement shoes. But I really think that what every girl needs is a statement bra. Even if you only wear it rocking out in front of the mirror at home.

A few days ago, I went about making my own. I pulled out an old demi from my drawer, grabbed a 30″ metal zipper and went to town. All I did was cut the zipper down to the length of the bra and hot glue that sucker together. It helps if you pin all of the zippers into place first so you can see your finished design before gluing.

Zippers used like that always remind me of that Project Runway winner Jeffery. In his final projects he used a lot of zippers as trim, and I've always thought it was fantastic.

Are those zippers around the edges and the straps, though? They kind of seem like they're fabric, but I can't tell. If they're zippers they seem like they would hurt.
