Cobwebs and Couture: Lady Gaga Saves the Rainforest
Sure, they were reading teleprompters for the lyrics, and sure, Sir Elton mangled the second verse a bit, and--horrors of horrors--Kate Hudson joined in for the final chorus, but I didn't mind (OK: I minded Kate very much) because I was in thrall to the kittenish adorableness that was Lady Gaga.
Channeling Edie Sedgwick brows, Keane eyes, a postmodern Miss Havisham cobweb bustier-mini dress and Rosemary's Baby toes, Lady G charmed with every move.
She put an arm around Sir Elton after his flub; she sang with Sting;
she engaged in a modest twist (all in the toes);
she posed with Trudie Styler;
she did not try to upstage Debbie Harry to her right or Shirley Bassey to her left;
all the while looking delectable.
