It’s the last official day of Summer. 🍃 Things are still mostly green, but I know the next two weeks things will get colorful very quickly!

VS Galacta Knight
VS Galacta Knight

Meta Knight has dethroned a king, climbed the highest mountain, explored the depths of the earth, destroyed his own battleship, and traveled to the edge of the galaxy all to prove he’s the greatest warrior. Now he’s reawakened Galactic Nova to grant him his wish, to fight the knight who was sealed away for fear his power was too great.

One fine day in August 2008 I was shooting street style for style.com in the Meatpacking District. My editor and I were trolling for stylish folks when we happened upon the young woman posing above. When we approached her she was shopping with her mom but took a moment to pose for a photo. After taking three frames I asked for her info and in a very serious tone she responded, I am Lady Gaga - a singer/songwriter. It took all my energy to not break into hysterics, needless to say I let out a laugh later that day.Sure enough it only took a couple months until she started popping up everywhere. After recounting this story recently to a friend I decided to dig up the photos. It seems that I caught her in the early stages of transformation into the cyborg we know and love today.
