Lady Gaga's 10-inch platform shoes, spiked bustier, andturquoise wig weren't the only things that got the Web talking this week when shearrived at the Council Of Fashion Designers Of America Awards (CFDA) in New York to pick up herstyle-icon honor. The woman in black who escorted her across the red carpetalso sparked a buzz.
The woman's name is Natali Germanotta, and she is Lady Gaga's19-year-old sister. Natali bears a strong resemblance to the sibling six yearsher senior. Dressed in a simple pants suit, gold necklace, bustier, and blacklipstick, Natali looks like Lady Gaga without the rock star costumes and hair.
Natali has been photographed at other Gaga events. She wasin the front row when Lady Gaga performed on "Today" last year. And she evenhas a cameo in the epic Lady Gaga and Beyonce video "Telephone." In the video,when Lady Gaga enters the jail holding cell, she stands directly beside then-17-year-old Natali, who is wearing dark shades and big '80s hair.
