Lady Gaga comes to Venezuela!


Actually, this is the current Miss Venezuela, Marelisa Gibson, wearing her “national costume”–which looks NOTHING like the traditional dress of any Venezuelan region, but sure does look an awful lot like a shattered disco ball. Or one of Lady Gaga’s rejects. It’s hard to tell, eh?

    In what alternate universe is this the “traditional” Venezuelan dress? I looks like another nouveau riche pieces of trashy self-promotion. Or one of the Washington Madame’s call girls.

  2. LOL–I suspect that the region it represents is the downtown business core of Caracas. I’m surprised she isn’t wearing a replica of that tacky Pepsi ball on her head.

    This isn’t based in any national region… This dress was inspired by Alejandro Otero’s “Abra Solar”, a piece of architecture found in Caracas. It is actually pretty near to where that tacky Pepsi ball used to be, Plaza Venezuela. Google “abra solar” and u’ll see some pictures. And yes, this is also part of our culture, very regional indeed.

  4. Thanks, Alejandro. NOW it makes sense…kind of. Not quite as kitschy as the dress worn by last year’s Miss Bolivia, mind you, and that’s a GOOD thing.
