LOL! My title is getting more attention than the image :-)

Thanks for your kind words, folks. Marion, they're not piercings, they're rings. Pretty convincing, though, aren't they!

Beautiful photo, definitely scored too low, I think the dissonance between it and the other entries hurt the score - not quite what the voter was looking for this time around. I love that the tone of the image fits the subject, just as the tone of some of your antique-y shots add so much to the picture, same here, except that the tone is very bright, in-your-face, unusual, attention-grabbing, PR centric, etc. 'Tis a magnificent image, 'tis, 'tis!

Surprised to see this way down here. I think this one is awesome as a photograph. I think it may have suffered from the backlash against celebrities these days.

I was so distracted by all the ott glamor and bling that I almost missed the piercings. Ouch! I like the image but somehow feel that I shouldn't. 8

Good thing this is a photography site, or your title could land you in some hot water :)

I cannot tell a lie. I like :) Whilst I am no Lady Gaga fan, you've nailed it. Very theatrical and OTT. Amazing detail and MU, Hair, Styling. A tad hot on hair which it needs as it is a paparazzi flashes popping style shot. 8
