Lady Gaga has conquered the fashion world, but that doesn't mean she can't send herself to the bottom of the professional ladder for the sake of style. The pop icon reportedly is preparing for an internship with famous milliner Philip Treacy, who designs hats for celebrities and royals—including the notorious creation Princess Beatrice wore at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. And Gaga has company: from Kanye West at Fendi to Mary-Kate Olsen with Annie Leibovitz, see established stars who have worked as interns.
From her revealing leotards to her Alexander McQueen armadillo heels, the "Edge of Glory" pop star is also always on the edge of style. Lady Gaga has already made her mark on the fashion world: She was a columnist for V magazine, where she wrote about her creative process and her analysis of the pop culture world, she walked the runway at Mugler's Fall/Winter 2011 fashion show in Paris, and she recently won the fashion icon award at the 2011 CFDA Awards. But now, the 25-year-old pop star who created the Haus of Gaga is sending herself to the bottom of the fashion food chain as an intern for Philip Treacy, the milliner to royals and style mavens all over the world. Treacy told The Guardian that Gaga "plans to" intern for him. "She's already visited me… She is young, talented and peculiar—which I like."
