Irish milliner Philip Treacy creates another piece of art for Lady Gaga


Lady Gaga and Philip Treacy in London last week.

Phillip Treacy, the Co. Galway-born milliner to the stars, cooked up yet another wacky creation for one of his favorite clients, Lady Gaga, which she showed off during a shipping trip in London last week.
Treacy, who is based in the city, topped off the Lady’s head with a bunch of multi-colored dollar signs.

She spent part of her time on a shopping trip with Treacy, and undoubtedly dropped a few bucks in the vintage clothing store where she combed the racks.

Treacy and Gaga go back a way.  She’s a keen follower of his designs and at one point expressed an interest in interning with the world famous hat maker, who also topped the heads of many guests at the Will and Kate royal wedding.  (Remember the ridiculous antlers that Princess Beatrice wore? That was a Treacy invention.)

“She plans to (intern),” Treacy told The Guardian this summer.  “She's already visited me.  This is what happened: one Monday morning, four burly bodyguards arrived – Lady Gaga's security team – to check out the security of the building. I looked at them as if to say, what?! Who is going to take a pot shot at Lady Gaga?  Anyway, she is young, talented and peculiar – which I like.”
