Take serious musical talent, add some David Bowie’esque theatrics, then toss in a whole lot of cray cray and you have Lady Gaga. Love her or hate her, there’s no doubt she’s got IT. But there’s more behind the “mask” than meets the eye. She learned to play piano from the age of four, went on to write her first piano ballad at 13 and began performing at open mike nights in NYC by age 14. She attended 2 1/2 years at the prestigious New York University Tisch School of th Arts before dropping out to focus on her music career. During her early time at Interscope Records, she worked as a songwriter for Britney Spears and labelmates Fergie and the Pussycat Dolls. Between her debut album, The Fame, and follow-up, The Fame Monster, she has sold over 15 million albums and picked up two Grammys along the way. This pop diva’s outrageous style is what really put her on the map. These fabulous, stand-out white Carrera shades are right up her alley. They come in four other glam frame/lens hues including black/yellow and red. Now these are something to go gaga over.  –rpuccia
