Baby Gaga: The Fashion Star
Lady Gaga and Natali Germanotta

Looks like Lady Gaga isn’t the only Germanotti blessed with an eye for fashion. The singer’s younger sister, Natali, has been revealed as the creator for a new, off-Broadway show, Simon Says, and sources say she is already tipped as one the industry’s hottest young frock stars.

Deemed one-to-watch in the fashion world, the 19-year-old is currently studying fashion design at NYC’s Parsons, where fash mega-stars Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford cut their designing teeth.

Spotted on the arm of her sister at this year’s CFDA awards, Natali kicked off her fashion career interning at New York based eco-conscious design house Alison Parris, helping backstage at its autumn/winter 2010 show. But it’s clear that Gaga’s talented sister is destined for a place in the spotlight, much like her awesomely attired superstar sibling.

“Natali has an edgier sense of style like her sister,” Creative Director Parris told WWD. “When she went to the Grammys a few years ago, she wore one of our little lace trapeze dresses, but styled it up with leather and hardware. She’s so nice and easy to work with. She’s a great girl.”

With Natali’s theatrical fashion background, and Gaga’s penchant for dramatic outfits, we’re thinking this is one styish sister act made in fash heaven. And with gossips claiming Natali is in talks with Gaga’s long-term stylist and collaborator Nicola Formichetti, Baby Gaga looks set for a turbo-charged rise to style mega-stardom.
