Lady Gaga has always been the type of woman that marches to the beat of her own drum. Rather than following trends, she sets new ones. Case in point: When she couldn't make it to the AMAs last night, she had her own red-carpet replica made so she could pose in front of it. Though she could only be there in spirit (and through live broadcast), Gaga made sure she was rocking full glam.
She opted for a hair color that's gaining popularity this fall: cream soda. Loaded with lowlights of copper and super-warm gold tones while keeping roots a subtle brown, the result is a creamy balance of bronde and a believable red. The only thing that could make it even better is a headful of ringlet curls—yes, the 31-year-old committed to a full-on '80s va-va-voom perm. So, to sum up, when Lady Gaga isn't inventing new trends, she's bringing back old ones and making them feel fresh again. And that, beauty junkies, is just as important.
