For me, she is the future.....

Lady Gaga won the CFDA's Fashion Icon award, Monday night at New York's Lincoln Center.

As she accepted her award, Gaga told the story of how she heard the news. She recieved a text message from "Anna" whom she explained thought was her friend Anna Trevelyan, Nicola Formichetti's assistant. So Gaga texted back "Yes, bitch, we did it!", only to quickly discover that the 'Anna' in question was none other than Anna Wintour, the editor of US Vogue.....

And without missing a beat Anna Wintour replied: "That's lovely."

Here's a great quote from Nicola Formichetti/McQueen:

“In the beginning, it was tricky calling in clothes for Gaga because none of the designers wanted to work with her with the exception of Lee [Alexander McQueen] and Miuccia Prada. They were both supportive from the beginning. I remember every single designer who said no. I will never forget [Laughs.] And since then, every single designer has come back asking to work with her. So, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha [In a mock evil voice.] But seriously, who else would you want to see in your clothes? When I styled her in McQueen for ‘Bad Romance’ I just wanted to get her into the next phase of high, high, high concept. Lee said, ‘For me, she is the future.’”
