LADY GAGA: THE BORN THIS WAY BALL – THE AFTERPARTY – January 11, 2013
DJ Lady Starlight made an appearance at Republic last Friday after her Born This Way Ball concert with Lady Gaga. This was another fantastic event formulated by Vernard Goud of LuvNGrace, in association with Interscope Records, Bella Garnet, Donnelly Group and AXS.
People who thought the show was over after the concert definitely missed out. In addition to getting to hang out with Lady Starlight, a variety of amazing shows took place at Republic, MC’d by FashionTV’s Mandy Ross. There were live performances by Kristen Karma followed by Carol Cox. Stiletto Fit Dance took the floor to show off what they were all about while Glitter Machine Body Paint had their fabulous body painting strutting around on display.
The fashion shows started with the sexy Peruvian designer bikini by Qispi Kay Beachware, followed by Element 7 body chains, the unique Rogue Designs, and ending with fashion by Misty Greer + hats by Hive Mind Millinery. Also featured were some stylish leggings by Dutch Blonde.
When Lady Starlight finally made the scene, she was instantly swarmed by media. I squeezed my way in through the fans and got to have a short chat with Lady Starlight before she was whisked away. When I asked what she loved most about Vancouver, she pointed at me and responded with a word: “You!” I assume she was referring to the people of Vancouver, not me specifically… I think… ?
