Date: January 20th 2019 Location: Park Theater (Las Vegas, Nevada)
Kicking off the Jazz and Piano portion of her Las Vegas residency, Lady Gaga emerged on stage in a stunning black look from the original promotional photo that was first released August 7th, 2018.
To start, Lady Gaga wore the spiked black piece from the promotional photo by Rinaldy Yunardi. Rinaldy Yunardi is a millinery, fashion accessories and lighting designer from Jakarta, Indonesia. He began his career designing wedding tiaras in 1996 and soon expanded to fashion accessories, millinery, and art lighting. Throughout his over 20 year career, Yundari has won many awards and was even appointed as a member of the Asian Couture Federation as the only accessories designer in 2015!
Her piece debuted in the "Flower Extravaganza" collection in October 2017 for a collaboration with Central Department Store in Indonesia. Because of this, I cannot find the piece available for purchase anywhere.
Next, Lady Gaga wore large earrings from Laruicci but instead of the pair she originally wore in the poster, Lady Gaga opted for a new pair that is not listed on their website. However, Laruicci took to Instagram to celebrate their design being included in the show (see left). Shoutout to Gagapedia who managed to find a photo of the earrings!
Lady Gaga's black sequin dress was designed by her sister Natali Germanotta who graduated from Parsons School of Design. The extreme plunging V-neck dress was constructed with help from Debra Cooper. The dress is finished with fringe starting at the high leg slit and silver crystal embellishments over the left hip, shaped similarly to a spider or a flower.
What a treat - Lisa Bruno from Lady Gaga's wardrobe department shared a sketch of the dress design by Natali on Instagram, see right!
Finally, Mother Monster wears black pumps from Jimmy Choo that her stylist Tom Eerebout credited for the show. Unlike the "Romy 100" pumps that she typically wears from the British fashion house, Lady Gaga's pumps feature a towering spike heel that measures 120mm! This first pair is the black patent leather version of the "Anouk" heel which are available for $650 here!
