Scandalous Sky-High Heels

Lady Gaga Reaches New Heights With Her Penis-Shaped High Heel Shoes

— May 16, 2011 — Fashion
Leave it to no one else except the wonderfully eccentric Lady Gaga to show up to this week's American Idol wearing a pair of penis-shaped high heel shoes. Serving as a mentor to the remaining four contestants on the popular American show, Lady Gaga completed her already out-of-this-world look with these one-of-a-kind high heels.

From the front, these shoes appear to be just another pair of wickedly tall heels that Lady Gaga is notoriously known for wearing, but once you see them from the back, you are faced with two penises supporting each shoe. Supporting black pumps, each shaft is clear and contains what appears to be sperm. These are hands-down the most bizarre pair of high heels I have ever seen; certainly a shoe that only Gaga could rock.
Trend Themes
1. Gender-challenging Fashion - Designing and wearing unconventional fashion items that challenge traditional gender norms, like penis-shaped high heel shoes, offers disruptive innovation opportunities in the fashion industry.
2. Provocative Footwear - Creating daring and unconventional footwear designs, like high heels with explicit shapes and imagery, presents disruptive innovation opportunities in the shoe industry.
3. Celebrity-inspired Fashion Trends - Embracing and capitalizing on the impact of celebrities like Lady Gaga who push boundaries with their fashion choices provides disruptive innovation opportunities in the fashion industry.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - The fashion industry can explore innovative designs and concepts to cater to consumers looking for unconventional and boundary-pushing fashion items.
2. Shoe - The shoe industry has the opportunity to create bold and provocative footwear designs that appeal to individuals seeking unique and bold fashion statements.
3. Entertainment - The entertainment industry can leverage celebrity influence to drive and capitalize on emerging fashion trends, generating new revenue streams and collaborations with fashion brands.
