Pop star and fashion fan Lady Gaga has applied to do an internship with renowned hat designer Philip Treacy.

The Irish-born milliner designed two pieces of headwear for Gaga's recent Monster Ball tour.

"She requested an internship but nothing has been set in stone yet," a spokesperson for Treacy said.

Lady Gaga, 24, is famous for her often outlandish headgear, including a lobster hat and a telephone hat, both designed by Treacy.

Treacy began his business in the basement of fashion stylist Isabella Blow's house in London before opening his first shop next door in 1994.

He spent 10 years designing hats for Karl Lagerfield at Chanel and he has also designed hats for Valentino, Gianni Versace and Alexander McQueen at Givenchy.

He has won numerous designer awards and was appointed an OBE in 2007.

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Cher are among his famous fans.

Lady Gaga, known for hits such Paparazzi and Just Dance, is playing Birmingham, London and Manchester in May and June - in the same venues she already played back in February.
