Leaked Gaga photo points to global success

GYMPIE'S Devoted Milliner Cindy Vogels has rocketed from favourite local artist to global designer, all in the space of 24 hours.

Yesterday morning, millions of Lady Gaga fans around the world clicked on the Mother Monster's Facebook and Instagram pages to see the eccentrically dressed pop idol in one hell of a headpiece.

The out-there design is the renegade creation of Gympie New Business of the Year owner Ms Vogels.

The image of her black feather crown has flooded social media and global news sites in anticipation of the release of Gaga's next album, Cheek to Cheek.

Not even Ms Vogels herself was aware Gaga had worn the headpiece on stage until the photo was leaked yesterday.

Ms Vogels, featuring at Springtime at Springhalls today, said the headpiece was a last-minute addition to a selection of work requested by Lady Gaga's style team, which took interest in her work after seeing it online.

The piece was almost lost enroute, though when customs in Alaska nearly destroyed it, because of its feather content. But luckily, the rebel piece survived and went on be Ms Vogel's biggest career highlight to date.

It's quite overwhelming," she said.

Ms Vogels is yet to find out whether other items she has sent have made the final cut.

"It's a creative gamble and it's one that I'm really glad I made."

She has had to maintain a poker face for some time though, waiting to announce her international success only if she could confirm her work had in fact been donned by the fashion singer herself.

While she has been swamped with support from well-wishers, some aren't quite as star-struck as others.

"I told my children, I said 'mummy has some amazing news; the hats I've been sending to New York, they've been worn by Lady Gaga'."

"My daughter then said 'Mummy, I have some amazing news too; the pumpkin seeds I planted have sprouted!'."
