There’s more than one fashion star in the Germanotta family. In a livestream concert presented by Westfield earlier this week, Lady Gaga performed songs from her new album with Tony Bennett, “Love for Sale,” which dropped Friday. And the pop phenom, 35, took the stage in a duo of dramatic dresses from Topo Studio, the new label designed by Gaga’s younger sister, Natali Germanotta.
For her first act, the Grammy winner belted out tunes including “Luck Be a Lady” and a jazzy “Poker Face” cover wearing a sheer, sparkling nude gown dripping with feathers.
She later changed into a black velvet dress with a thigh-high slit and a gauzy attached sash to sing “Born This Way,” “La Vie en Rose,” “Fly Me to the Moon” and more.
“Thank you to my talented sister @germ_aphobenotta @topostudiony for designing my beautiful costumes for the show!” --- Gaga wrote on Instagram post-performance.
While Topo Studio appears to be a brand-new project — “Coming soon,” its Instagram page teased this week — the two Germanotta sisters are longtime collaborators.
Natali, 29, graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York City and once assisted designer Brandon Maxwell, who served as Gaga’s stylist for years. She’s also designed a number of stage costumes for her famous sibling, and worked in the costume department on Gaga’s 2018 blockbuster “A Star Is Born.”
Gaga even brought Natali as her date to both the CFDA Fashion Awards (2011) and the Oscars (2019).
