Date: May 29th 2018 Location: Electric Lady Studios (New York City, New York)
After another long day in the studio, Lady Gaga switched outfits into a smoking hot red look for her fans waiting outside. While somewhat simple in silhouette, the designs were made with creative materials for one of my favorite looks of the week.
To start, Lady Gaga wore a strapless vinyl dress from Italian designer Giuseppe di Morabito! Morabito is a young designer who formed his label in 2014. His Women’s line is characterized by Made in Italy tailoring, special fabrics and sophisticated embroideries. The brand’s style plays with a sense of elegant bizarreness, the art of tailoring in different shapes and forms.
From look 13 of Morabito's Fall/Winter 2018 collection, Lady Gaga's "Bustier Vinyl Dress" is made of flaming hot red vinyl with a fitted waistline and back slit. The dress features an invisible slip on the back and was sold for $800. Unfortunately, the trunk show for the collection has ended and the dress is no longer available.
For her extreme platform heels, Lady Gaga wore Vivienne Westwood fresh off the runway! Westwood is a British designer known for her elegant designs as well as her unique designs - and these shoes are unique! Made with matching red plastic and leather, the shoes appear to be hand-painted with words like "sex," "extra," "porn," and "gay." They are not shown in the official campaign lookbook but they were showcased on the runway. I have not been able to find anywhere to purchase the shoes.
To accessorize her look, Lady Gaga started with a brand new pair of sunglasses. From a collaboration between the Parisian eyewear house and French fashion designer, Lady Gaga wears sunglasses from Alain Mikli x Alexandre Vauthier. The collection explores the labels’ shared love of avant-garde style with a collection of retro-meets-futuristic sunglasses.
Lady Gaga's pair are the "Roselyne" frames which are oversized round sunglasses handmade in Italy and constructed of black marbled acetate embellished with tiny round Swarovski crystals. There are only a few pairs left through Barneys for $590 here.
Next, Lady Gaga wore unique hoop earrings from Oscar De La Renta. Made with Swarvoski crystal spikes, the earrings are the "Crystal Small Pave Sea Urchin Earrings," available for $360 here. Oscar De La Renta also sells a larger pair of the same design for $480.
Finally, no look is complete without a stunning purse to carry your belongings and LG did not disappoint! For her nighttime look, Lady Gaga carried an Azzedine Alaia bag but I have not been able to track down the exact bag in any of Alaia's collections. I will keep looking so stay tuned for an update! And if you have a tip, tweet it to us @WhatGagaWore!
Big thank you to Lady Gaga's stylists Sandra Amador and Tom Eerebout for helping create this amazing look and posting all the credits!
