Style Spotlight: Kay Day "Gaga Spears"

Known as Kay Day to her friends, including me, and known as "Gaga Spears", or just "Gaga", she is one of the rarer souls like Andy Warhol, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, and Lady Gaga herself that seems to seamlessly live in her own world while simultaneously existing in the one around her. With a fondness for tutus, stiletto heels, slip on bias-cut dresses, and tons of costume jewelry, WKU freshman Kay Day moves to the beat of her own drum. Her inspiration for her wardrobe comes from her variety of experiences, some of which include being born and living in Queens, New York in her early life, moving to New Albany and Louisville working as the tutu-wearing, high-intensity Spinelli's pizza girl, going on misadventures with her best friend Devin, and dancing to Lady Gaga and Britney Spears. "Surf's Up, Bro", "Put it on a shirt!", and "What?" are Kay Day's favorite sayings and the words themselves have gained a sort of strange notoriety that follows her everywhere. I can remember her telling me, after a mob of screaming girls hugged her, "I need to get a bodyguard". Like Lady Gaga, Kay Day wants to live the famous life, or from the brand she and her friends have made, the "Trashy Life". What draws us together is our utter difference in our friends, wardrobes, and career goals. She's Trashy. I'm Flashy. She's Marilyn. I'm Audrey. She's Warhol. I'm Mondrian. But if you see us together, which isn't quite difficult, you'll notice our harmonious blend of disharmony that keeps us inspiring and shocking each other.
