Lady Gaga’s sister made her debut as a model. The 20-year-old sibling of the famous eccentric singer took part in a photo shoot for ViralFashion.com.
Natali Germanotta, Lady Gaga’s younger sister, took part in the photo shoot that took place at Joanne Trattoria, her parents’ Italian restaurant in New York City’s Upper West Side. The newly model wore several high-end pieces signed Alaia, J Mendel and Proenza Schouler.
Natali works for the restaurant when she is not attending the fashion classes of the Parsons The New School for Design. In an interview for ViralFashion.com she described the restaurant’s staff she was photographed with as tight “like a family unit” but was vague about her job description. “I do a little bit of everything and adore my family,” she said.
Lady Gaga’s sister is not as keen to be in front of a camera as her famous sibling, so her taking part in the photo shoot was a bit surprising. However, Natali accompanied her sister on the red carpet for several events, including the CFDA Fashion Awards in June 2011. She also featured in Gaga’s video for “Telephone”, a collaboration with Beyoncé.
When talking about the photo shoot, Christian Fleres, ViralFashion.com creative designer, revealed that the photo spread was intended to show an over the top version of the restaurant, starting with the oversized meatballs and the 20 pound fish on the table and ending with the big hair and jewelry. “We had drama in mind the whole time, for that day everyone was playing the superhero version of themselves,” he added.
