This printed silk pajama ensemble with full-on fox fur from Viktor & Rolf F/W '12/'13 that Lady Gaga recently stepped out in hearkens back so delightfully to the golden age of Hollywood G-L-A-M-O-U-R when stars (like the incomparable Barbara Stanwyck) shone with class and cared about "old fashioned" values like looking appropriate and the fact that "kids" looked up to them. Yes, I know that in private, many of them were vain pill-popping nightmare divas, but their public persona fed The Dream.
And dreaming is what we all need a bit more of today, no?
