On the off chance you thought that Lady Gaga had toned things down, then pop’s reigning extrovert is here to remind you that some things never change. After going normcore for a nanosecond, indulging in some Versace archival moments, and even—gasp!—wearing sweats and leggings, the star pulled out all the stops yesterday with three wardrobe changes.
Making her way around Manhattan with a series of outfits that escalated in drama by the hour, Gaga proved she still pulls off outlandish fashion better than anyone around. For a trip the Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village, the superstar went relatively subdued with a tartan suit by Calvin Luo, circular movie star sunglasses, and a black clutch. With its tea-length skirt and old school vibe, the suit was demure, though the shades of acid yellow and chartreuse woven into slate grey kept things exciting.
Switching gears on leaving the studio, she changed into a flirty white cocktail dress from Valentino and a pair of Neil J. Rogers mules. A romantic look for a spring day, the ’50s-style dress was complete with full skirt and layers of tulle. Keeping her clutch and sunglasses the same, she continued the retro style moment before pulling out her final and most over-the-top piece: a crimson Christian Siriano minidress from the designer’s Fall 2018 collection. Fiery in color and adorned with a cape of red ruffles, Gaga was at her best as she headed to the Gramercy Park Hotel for a special performance. It was the kind of audacious fashion statement she lives for, and true to form she played things up, adding on a bejeweled vintage choker, velvet opera gloves from Cornelia James, and fishnet Wolford stockings. She turned the sidewalk into her own personal runway, stepping out of her SUV clutching an Azzedine Alaïa purse and peering out through teensy Adam Selman frames, —exactly what we’d expect from a diva.
