She’s been on the tips of our collective tongues for the better part of a year now, so this one shouldn’t come as too much of a shocker: Lady Gaga has topped the Global Language Monitor’s list of “fashionable phrases,” the first for a name. Trouncing rivals like Leggins 2.0 (huh?) and Armadillos (as in those McQueen shoes), Gaga heads up an algorithmically compiled pack of words and phrases most commonly found in print and online.
Declaring her impact on the fashion world both “subtle” and “profound,” GLM’s so-called fashion correspondent also managed to diss Ms. Germanotta by saying she hailed from Yonkers, not Manhattan. Indignities aside, Gaga can rest assured knowing she managed to best even herself, evidenced by number three on the list: No pants.
