Adam Lambert is ready take his over-the-top performance all over the world to promote his album, For Your Entertainment. And as the image-conscious “Idol” runner-up plans a tour for later this year, one big question remains: Who will design his stage outfits?
Thanks to Jocelyn Vena, and with reporting by Tim Kash who are both from MTV, for letting us in on this:
At the G-Star Raw show during New York Fashion Week, Lambert did dish to MTV News that he already has a designer in mind. “Oh, wow, I think Gareth Pugh is really, really talented,” he said of the English designer whose goth-chic designs could be a perfect fit for the glam rocker. “It’s kind of futuristic and cutting edge.”
Lambert added that he loves how Pugh always does the unexpected, not unlike Lambert himself. “He uses materials that aren’t typical for fabrics,” he explained. “He uses a lot of metal and spikes and nails and things like that. It might not be the most comfortable outfit in the world, but it’s so striking.”
Given his love for avant-garde fashions, it comes as no surprise that Lambert has only one rule when it comes to his style: There are no rules. “I hate the term, ‘Oh, I couldn’t ever pull that off,’ ” he said. “I let that go when I was about 20. I try to aim to pull anything off that comes my way.”
