Lady Gaga may say she was born this way, but we imagine she was born looking a bit more like Natali Germanotta, her little sister.
Germanotta gets her own spread in October's Teen Vogue and looks quite natural compared to her dramatically-dressed sister.
The 19-year-old goes bare-faced save for some black eyeliner, her hair is what looks like its original color and there's not a nipple pastey nor 12-inch heel in sight.
Not that Natali is opposed to such crazy styles of dressing. She told Teen Vogue that she was thrilled when her older sis showed up to her church-held high school graduation in a flesh-toned, bedazzled leotard and a giant, black-netted headpiece:
"She asked me, 'Should I dress really conservative and look not like myself, or should I do it over-the-top and freak everybody out?' And I was like, 'The latter, definitely the latter.'"
While not as wild in style (Natali told the magazine,"Some of the stuff she wears I'd be like, 'No, never,'"), Natali loves fashion and is currently studying design at Parsons The New School for Design.
In fact, as we learned last month, the two sisters are collaborating on a clothing line. We were skeptical when hearing the news (another celebrity clothing line?). But after seeing Natali's sophisticated style in Teen Vogue, we're pretty intrigued to see what the artistic pair comes up with.
