The March for Our Lives was a student-led demonstration that took place in Washington, D.C. with over 800 sibling events throughout the United States and around the world. The event followed the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, where protesters urged for universal background checks on all gun sales, raising the federal age of gun ownership and possession to the age of 21, closing of the gun show loophole, a restoration of the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban, and a ban on the sale of high-capacity magazines in the United States.
With 2 million marching across the United States, it was the largest student protest in American history, one of the largest marches on Washington in history, and the second largest march in American history, with millions more estimated to have marched throughout the world.
A sibing event took place in Walnut Creek, California which Lady Gaga joined alongside the Born This Way Foundation and Channel Kindness reporters! For the day, Lady Gaga started with a special black hat from designer Nick Fouquet. The hat is the "Devil + Rose" made with distressed black beaver felt. The black French grosgrain band is finished with a resin rose and handmade in Venice, California.
The hat is available for order through contacting Nick Fouquet for $1,325 here.
Next, Lady Gaga wore the vintage sunglasses she got from Zipper Vintage Clothing in Amsterdam while on tour earlier this year. The rimless shades are the "Rebel 1" from BAD BOY, manufactured back in the 1990's. The 53mm square lenses feature thick gold metal etched with "BAD BOY" to connect the frames. LG's pair are made with what appears to be black lenses and tortoise shell acetate - similar pairs made with silver hardware instead of her gold are surprisingly available for only $30 through Sunglass Museum here.
As for her outfit, Lady Gaga wore a vintage Rolling Stones baseball shirt which features a dragon and sunset design on the front with The Rolling Stones logo and text on the back. I am unaware of Lady Gaga purchased the shirt but there are several retailers online including one of a kind eBay listings. One of the listings I found, in a brighter tone than LG's, is available to make an offer here.
Finishing her look, Lady Gaga appears to wear a pair of black jeans and a pair of shoes from Alexander Wang. Her shoes were finally visible in one fan video posted of Lady Gaga filming a video message for her social media. The "Lyndon" combat style boots have been worn by LG several times before which is how I recognized the signature metal cap along the toe of the shoes. They are sold out through Alexander Wang now but they are still widely available through outside retailers including Net-A-Porter for $750 ($100 less than the original sale price) here.
She also wore a beaded rosary style necklace, which she has worn several times before, that I have not tracked down. If you have a tip, tweet it to us @WhatGagaWore!
