10 Useful Holiday Tips From Lady Gaga's Workshop

As a collaboration between herself and creative director Nicola Formichetti, I was expecting a slightly over-the-top, pop-punk wonderland. What I didn't expect was to pick up some really, really useful tips for decorating and entertaining this holiday season. Check out my ten takeaways after the jump.
