A HARAJUKU GIRLS DREAM: LADY GAGA ARRIVES IN JAPAN
Can you imagine the furore in Japan right now, with the knowledge that flanked by security, Lady Gaga was spotted arriving at Narita International Airport in Narita, Japan on Tuesday (April 13).
That’s going to be insanee for the Harajuku girls of Japan who are perhaps the only girls who dress more outrageous than Lady Gaga does every day. She’s their star. Needless to day poor Lady Gaga will get lost in the crowed in Harajuku, with her minders running after the wrong Gaga.
The urban dictionary defines Harajuku girls as being: “‘Harajuku’ is a location in Japan where the young and teenagers dress in their own fashions they invent themselves, or cosplay outfits.” My sister Mother Theresa Sharon totally loves Harajuku District’s fashion sense and these crazy Japanese fashionistas inspire her no end on her global travels, hence this post.
I guess you could say that Lady Gaga is America’s version of a Harajuku girl. She just makes more money doing it for paparazzi, but her style is very Japanese influenced. Actually going to Japan is Gaga’s first actual acknowledgement that she has borrowed heavily off the Harajuku District to become a star. It’s a moment where Harajuku USA meets Harajuku Japan. Hot world fashion moment!
Konnichiwa Japan. Show me your teeth! :)
