Date: January 28th 2018 Location: Madison Square Garden (New York City, New York)
Taking a break from the final dates of her Joanne World Tour, Lady Gaga went back to New York City to attend the 60th Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden. For her arrival, Lady Gaga wore an exquisite black bodysuit and skirt that she later showcased on Instagram and re-styled to be in the audience of the show.
A custom piece from Giorgio Armani Privé, Lady Gaga wore a long sleeve bodysuit covered in black lace and embellished with black crystals and structured shoulders. Attached around her waist, Lady Gaga wore a glittering silk wrap skirt that exposed her right leg and ended with a full train.
Lady Gaga later removed the skirt and added a wide brim hat to transform the look. Her wide brim hat, made with matching black lace was a custom creation from Stephen Jones Millinery - the first time I have seen her collaborate with the designer.
For her shoes, Lady Gaga wore a pair of ankle boot heels from Pleaser - a favorite of both hers and mine. She appears to be wearing their "Xtreme 2010 Boot" in custom black satin. The customization was done by Andre No. 1 Shoes & Apparel who also created many of her Joanne World Tour shoes.
The original black patent version of the 8 inch heels are available through Amazon for $91 to $213, depending on size and seller, here. Unfortunately, Lady Gaga's satin version are not available for purchase.
For her accessories, Lady Gaga wore over 300 carats of black diamonds from celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, mainly through a pair of large chandelier earrings. Her other black diamonds were used in a unique two-stone upper knuckle ring and a black snake-like ring both worn on her right hand.
Her designs are only available to clients by private appointments in New York City. Appointments and information can be found by emailing [email protected]

BONUS: Lady Gaga's makeup artist Sarah Tanno revealed all the details behind Lady Gaga's look on Instagram! As a Global Artistry Ambassador for Marc Jacobs Beauty, Lady Gaga's look was created entirely using Marc Beauty and was inspired by "a dark starry night. Romantic and striking to compliment the gorgeous #ArmaniPrivé creation."
For her face, Sarah started with the new "Shameless" Foundation which will be available online starting February 9th. Using shade Y270, the foundation is an innovation with invisible SPF and a self-setting finish. Next, Sarah "put a soft veil of blushon her cheeks" using the "Airblush Soft Glow Duo" in Kink & Kisses or shade 504, available for $42 here.
Finally, Sarah added a tap of highlighter to the "high points of skin for a sheer elegant glow." To do so, she used the "Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter" available in one shade only for $44 here.
Next, Sarah created heavily rimmed smoky (and glittery) eyes. Starting with lined eyes using the "Highliner Gel Eye Crayon" in Blacquer that were blended all over the lid, Sarah winged the shape to a sharp point using "Magic Marc’er" waterproof liquid eyeliner in Blaquer. The Highliner is available for $25 here and the Magic Marc'er is available for $30 here.
For her eyeshadow, Sarah started by blending the peach toned eyeshadow from the Glambition "Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette" all the way to the brow bone. She then used the sparkly black eyeshadow from the Edgitorial "Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette" to blend the transition from her eyeliner. Both palettes are available for $49 each here.
Sarah then added a loose silver glitter to make her eyes extra sparkly which Marc Beauty does not make and added a few coats of their favorite "Velvet Noir" Major Volume mascara. The mascara is available for $26 here.
Finally, for her lips Sarah first used "(P)outliner Longwear Lip Pencil" in the rosy nude shade Prim(rose) or 304. The liner is available for $24 here. She then finished using "Le Marc" lipstick in Cream & Sugar. The lipstick is only available in a travel set which is available with a matching lip liner and lip gloss for $24 here.
BONUS: Frederic Aspiras, Lady Gaga's hair artist, also revealed step by step instructions on how he created Lady Gaga's "Victorian inspired" corset braids. Partnering with John Frieda, Freddy used four different products. Click on each product for the store locator to find a retailer near you (prices listed using Target.com).
Step 1: Start by spraying John Freida Luxurious Volume Hydration Detangling Mist throughout the hair to comb out any tangles.
Step 2: Apply John Frieda Luxurious Volume Perfectly Full Mousse to give the hair volume and texture before creating a center part, and blow drying with a diffuser to set the hair.
Step 3: While braiding both sides, apply John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Gel ($5.09) to control and maintain smoothness of the two side braids.
Step 4: Braid all the way down and tie the ends with a clear elastic. Then, weave the corset.
Step 5: Finish and hold the style by spraying Luxurious Volume Forever Full Hairspray ($6.59)
BONUS: Lady Gaga kept her nails short and simple with a black manicure from Naomi Yasuda. Naomi used Red Carpet Manicure's LED Gel Polish in "Black Stretch Limo" which is available for only $10 here. However, a gel polish LED kit is required to use the polish.
