Lady Gaga isn't your typical fashion model. She stands only 5 feet 1 inch tall without shoes. Yet she pulls off some amazing shapes.

Oversized, rectangular shoulders are features of several outfits. In at least one, the shoulders are level with the top of her head. She'll also exaggerate her hips with rectangular skirts. Sharp-edged triangles adorn stiff, shiny costumes and black leather jackets. To add a few inches to her height, sometimes her hair will rise up in a conical shape above her circular sunglasses. But not everything's boxy and square -- spheres work, too. The lesson: Everything you need to know about fashion you learned in kindergarten.
