Who Wore it Better?

The Duchesse D'Abrantes or Lady Gaga

  1. Duchesses rank hire than a mere baroness or viscountesses, especially one of Gaga.

  2. If you're asking who wore the expression of good humor, than the Duchess. If you're asking about the bow, I recommend them both equally to the judgment of Robespierre.

  3. @Heather Carroll very true!

    @Fitzwilliam Miller your comment had me lol-ing in a library.

  5. The Duchesse, I think she looks really cute.

  6. Oh the Duchesse definitely.

    Of course I have zero tolerance for Lady Gaga due to her penchant for wearing Muppets as clothing. How dare she wear a Muppet!

  7. While I'm with Paul, if I had to choose, I'd go with the duchess because Gaga's style is downright annoying (like her music, though).

  8. I think the duchesse is winning everyone's votes with her sly smile! :)


    @Katy hahahhaa I never thought anyone would wear muppets!

  9. I think Lady Gaga looks ridiculous, and not in a good way. Her sense of "style," though uniquely her own, is in my humble opinion, hideous. How dare she wear a Muppet indeed! :)

    The duchesse, while equally ridiculous looking (I think the updo would look much more cohesive without the side curls...I'm a curly-haired gal myself but I don't think the curls compliment the rest of the sleek 'do), at least wears hers with style. I love the matching bow she's wearing on her collar!

    ...can you tell I'm a bit overly-passionate with my opinion on this round of "who wore it better"? =)
    PS. I have a blog award for you here!

  10. @Katy- That is my same exact gripe about her!

  11. Not being a pop culture expert and definitely not a Lady Gaga fan, I am a little confused. Were there, in fact, any Muppets killed in the making of her wordrobe? If so, I cannot imagine Miss Piggy was involved: she would kick that scrawny pop diva's ass for even looking at her silk purse/sal's ears the wrong way.

  12. The duchesse toned it down, not wearing make up, but Lady Gaga has that certain Minnie Mouse air that this Disney lover finds irresistible.

  13. @Lauren: I see. Yes, I see all and I am not amused.

  14. OMG -- Lady Gaga wore Muppets? I will never, never listen to her -- although I never did. (I don't even know what she does, nor do I care any longer). You're reading the comment of a woman who wept over the death of Jim Henson as though he was a member of my own family.

    Although a death sentence for looking like a twisted Playboy bunny may be extreme, I'd certainly condemn her to the national razor for wearing a muppet!

    So, the round goes to the duchesse d'Abrantes, the former Laure Permon (hey, her childhood pal Napoleon didn't know how to wear his hair when he was young, either).
