But there is the rare occasion where it seems like the pop star is pulling inspiration from someone else.
At last night's Grammy Nominations, Lady Gaga received her three noms and also performed at a concert benefitting The Grammy Museum's educational initiatives. But despite the light, happy cause, Gaga chose a super dark look consisting of head-to-toe black, including smudgy raccoon rings around her eyes.
With the dark eyeliner splotches, Gaga reminded us of a Dalmatian puppy... and of Taylor Momsen. Momsen, formerly of "Gossip Girl" but now known for trying to get her band, The Pretty Reckless, off the ground, is famous for her insanely dark eyeliner, the kind that extends inches above and below her peepers.
Check out Gaga's Momsen-esque eyes... are you a fan of the funny look?
