Does Lady Gaga Need Preposterous PPE?

By Elaine V. Quayle



When Lady Gaga was hit in the head during a concert in New Zealand, suffering a self-described “clonker” [concussion] and black eyes, there was one conclusion that savvy workplace experts could arrive at—she needs some preposterous PPE to protect her. And she may be just the person to design it!



When Lady Gaga was hit in the head during a concert in New Zealand, suffering a self-described “clonker” [concussion] and black eyes, there was one conclusion that savvy workplace experts could arrive at—she needs some preposterous PPE to protect her.  And she may be just the person to design it!
Since the entertainer is on a world tour, her equipment is just rigged and not permanently installed, upping the chance that things may fall. Evidently, a “disco stick” fell over right onto Gaga’s head.


Luckily, Gaga herself is tweeting that she is feeling better after lots of rest. It’s too bad Gaga wasn’t wearing one of her other headpieces at the time. That giant telephone would have softened the blow! 


Of course, some companies already offer PPE specially designed for women, featuring smaller sizes for bodies as light as 100 pounds and with a slight build, special chest straps to accommodate a woman’s figure, and colors other than khaki and army green.


However, we don’t think any of this standard issue PPE would fit Gaga’s fashion flair, especially the hard hats.


But as we told you in HRSBT, in 2010, Lady Gaga served an internship with British hat designer Philip Treacey, of “fascinator” fame, who is the top “headwear” designer in the United Kingdom. HRSBT reported that British Vogue said Gaga became an intern to learn the business from the bottom up and in a hands-on capacity. Surely she could apply some of the skills she learned to designing something outrageous, but protective!
