Unlikely bedfellows Lady Gaga and Giorgio Armani's names may have appeared all over the media together—the designer dressed the performer for her performance and appearance at this year's Grammys, her video for "Alejandro," and the MTV VMAs—but the two have never met in real life. The WSJ reports: "Though Mr. Armani has designed an entire wardrobe for Lady Gaga since the January Grammys—including for her appearance on American Idol and her "Monster Ball" concert tour—the two have never met. Still, Ms. [Roberta] Armani [manager of VIP relations] says that despite the half century between their ages, the two have lots in common—including Lady Gaga's Italian heritage (the performer's real name is Stefani Germanotta)."
