Lady Gaga is a fashion icon of a different kind. From plastic bubbles to a raw meat outfit, she seems to be willing to wear anything, as long as it is eye-popping. She prefers insanely high-platform shoes, which she even performs with, occasionally. Those shoes were created by 26-year-old Japanese designer Noritaka Tatehana. The young Japanese designer pitched his Geisha-wear inspired designs in an email to Gaga's stylist. Anchor Marco Werman talks to Yuri Kageyama, business reporter for the Associated Press in Tokyo, about Tatehana's sculptural boots.
