Fashion must run in the Germanotta family because Lady Gaga's little sister, 20-year-old Natali, shined in her fashion debut.

Germanotta, a student at Parsons The New School for Design, posed for the digital fashion website wearing Alaia, J Mendel, and Proenza Schouler. Gaga's sister, who rarely steps into the public eye, struck a pose in her family's New York City restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, along with some friends.
Natali admitted that she juggles her fashion studies at Parson along with playing an active role at the family eatery, which received harsh reviews earlier this year. (The New York Daily News called it "the worst thing since herpes.)
"I do a little bit of everything and adore my family," Germanotta told the fashion site.
The fashion shoot "Buon Natali" shot by photographer Marvin Joseph shows Gaga's little sister in demure, high fashion poses. However the dramatic details, like a high chignon and flashy jewels inspired by 1950's Italian cinema, was meant to be a juxtaposition to her big sister's over-the-top audacious style.
"Everything about the shoot was over the top from the oversized meatballs and the 20 pound fish on the table to the big hair and jewelry," ViralFashion.com's creative director, Christian Fleres, said. "We had drama in mind the whole time, for that day everyone was playing the superhero version of themselves."
While she is much a stranger to the public eye, Natali Germanotta has accompanied her sister Gaga to events before. In 2010, the younger Germanotta starred in Lady Gaga's music video for "Telephone" and, most recently, walked the red carpet with her sister at the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards.
According to Contact Music, Germanotta has also posed for Teen Vogue and Interview magazine before the ViralFashion shoot.
