As Seen in Lady Gaga’s ‘Paparazzi’ video: Flip-up Sunglasses

In Lady Gaga’s latest video ‘Paparazzi’ she wore these Minnie-Mouse-esque vintage flip-up sunglasses.

Would you rock ’em?

When it comes to fashion there are three categories.  Things that are art, such as many haute couture creations; there are things that are wearable in every day life; and there are things, like those glasses, which are costumes and best reserved for pop artists or other performers who can get away with it.

Though I’m sure we will be seeing some young men this Summer in Kadeem Hardison flip-ups (I owned a pair of those waaaaayyyy back in the day).
