Figures In Action! Barbie Vs Lady Gaga

What, did you think our Figures In Action! Series was going to be all superheroes? Half the pictures we've ever seen of Lady Gaga make us believe she's got a superhero fetish of her own (just check out pic #2 below) -- while the other half are just plain unbelievable.  Seriously,  if we didn't know any better, we'd think Bad Romance was performed by Marilyn Manson and Britney Spears' love child who also may have read  Grant Morrison's The Invisibles one too many times. 

But for the record, we're not pointing fingers at anybody. Except at  photographer Weikang Lu's recent work dolling up Barbie as the 'Fame Monster' herself, that is. Lu recreated a year's worth of Lady Gaga's most outrageous outfits for the infamous blonde bombshell, and we have to say Barbie's looking pretty damn glam.  In fact, she pulls off the crazy couture better than our Lady herself.  We've got three of our favorite ensembles here, but Lu's fashion show is far more robust. If you'd like to see what else Barbie's wearing a la Lady Gaga, the entire photo shoot is HERE or HERE.
