WGSN’s latest poll indicates that Lady Gaga, 23, is the biggest celebrity influence on fashion at the moment, somewhat validating Polaroid’s announcement of using the singer for its relaunch.
   She leads with a 55 per cent share of the poll, says WGSN.
   Supermodel Kate Moss comes second, with a distant 18 per cent.
   American First Lady Michelle Obama is third with 12 per cent, Vogue’s Anna Wintour is fourth with 9, followed by Audrey Tautou with 6.
   WGSN pop culture editor Alice Leeburn says in a release, ‘It’s no surprise that Lady Gaga came top, nor is the margin by which she led much of a shock. She is the single most influential celebrity for designers from the high-end to the high-street at the moment.
   ‘Her favourite designers are Alexander McQueen, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Jean Paul Gaultier, and they have felt her influence just as much as they have influenced her style. She has also had an impact on graphics with high-profile ’80s-style punk graphics in monochrome black and white with flashes of fluoro, as well as driving the trend for mirror mosaics at present.’

  3. I think that Lady Gaga is every designers dream girl. For the designers who do wacky things, she is the girl who will do them and make them popular.
