Just when you thought Lady Gaga’s fashion was unattainable, inaccessible, or prohibited from being worn in many public places, one of the designers who helped shape the wacky yet fabulous look of her Tarantino-tinged “Telephone” video has made the art of Gaga possible for the rest of us.
L.A.-based designer Brian Lichtenberg, who crafted the now-famous crime scene tape number that Gaga donned in the video, is creating a line of graphic tees for Forever 21, making it the mega-chain’s first designer collaboration.
His designs have also found fans in Beyoncé and Rihanna, though the avant-garde factor will presumably be tamed down a bit for the mass market. But even with some dilution, I’m expecting cool prints and cut-outs, and hopefully a few nods to his celebrity work. The line sounds like it’d be the perfect weekend option — just cross your fingers that you don’t cross paths with a 12-year-old rocking the same tee.
What do you guys think of the design collaboration? Are you going to get a piece of Gaga for yourself?
Demi Lovato may have a future in fashion design, as the day her celebrity charity shirt was made public, it sold out completely within one business day.
Demi along with other celebrities including Corbin Bleu, Colbie Caillat and Paris Hilton all designed t-shirts and tanks for Forever 21 that would benefit Starlight Children’s Foundation.
While her shirt is sold out online, limited amounts of the shirts that have been returned are still available in some stores. To see all of the remaining shirts that are still available for purchase, you can view the collection here.

Demi Lovato created her own T-shirt for Forever 21 in which all profits will go to the Children’s Starlight Foundation. From their official site:
Experiencing firsthand the effects of serious illness within her circle, Demi whole-heartedly shares this special piece of art. “I want to do anything I can to help.” The fine jersey knit racer back tank top features a curved hem and self binding at the arms and neck.

Forever 21, Inc. is launching a charitable line of T-shirts personally designed by celebrities with 100% of the proceeds, or 2/3 of the purchase price of the tops to benefit Starlight Children’s Foundation, helping seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities.
Designers Demi Lovato, Corbin Bleu, Paris, Nicky & Kathy Hilton, Colbie Caillat & Audrina Patridge were given art materials, which included paints, markers, and sketch pads, to create a unique painting on canvas using the themes of ‘star’ and ‘light’ which were incorporated onto a cotton shirt.
The special line will be available for purchase in select Forever 21 stores and online at Forever21.com. The T-shirts will retail for $12.80. Additionally, each celebrity’s original artwork will be up for auction at Starlight’s eBay store (www.ebay.com/starlight), starting Dec. 21.
