Lady Gaga's Changing Looks
The fresh-faced student at Convent of the Sacred Heart wrote that her dream was "headlining at Madison Square Garden."
As a songwriter and up-and-coming artist, Lady Gaga was mistaken for another strong-willed singer: "Actually the reason I dyed my hair blond is because I used to get Amy Winehouse all the time. I don't mind being compared to Amy, but I wanted my own image."
She released The Fame and accented her bone-straight bangs with a geometric headpiece. "I go onstage in origami dresses," she told People. "I'm inspired by that '70s glamour and decadence."
The creative star whipped up her style-setting hair bow from inexpensive extensions-and wore it 24/7. "Me and my hair bow, we go to bed together," she told reporters. "She sleeps where I sleep."
