Lady Gaga’s recent street style: god-awful or great?


Looks like Lady Gaga is in the process of metamorphosing into “serious actress” mode, with the upcoming arrival of A Star is Born. Mind you, it’s a slow change, but missing are the truly outlandish fashions, replaced by a slightly more conservative (by Gaga standards) look.

Gaga is in New York and has been spotted at the legendary Electric Lady Studios, where Jimi Hendrix recorded some of his most memorable songs. The singer is rumored to be working on material for a new album — the follow-up to 2016’s Joanne. On Monday, she seen in NYC’s West Village, decked out in an oversized bright orange blazer by House of Holland. With such a large blazer, who needs pants? She accessorized with a choker, cat-eye glasses, fishnets and a Gabriella Hearst bag. This shoe fanatic loves those amaze-balls Giuseppe Zanotti boots. I dig this look a lot, I’ve always dug oversized jackets so I may be partial, but I love the color on her and oh, those boots.


Later that day, she was spotted leaving the recording studio in an all-black ensemble. The top has lacing on the sides, and it’s paired with a cute mini. She’s got the same bag and is wearing the same boots, but swapped the cat-eyes for diamond-shaped shades and topped the outfit off with a leather cap. Lose the cap and the shades and I’m good with this. As someone whose unofficial work “uniform” is black (I really should have been a hairdresser), I really like this outfit. And let’s take a moment to recognize Gaga’s “second coming of Jason Statham” bodyguard. What a hunk. But, I digress.


On Tuesday, she showed up at the studio in another all-black outfit. This one is simple and cute – a tank, black pants and suspenders…and, yes, the bag and those boots. I feel a slight affinity for Gaga at this point because, if I find a pair of boots I like, I will put together as many complementary outfits as I can to show them off. I feel you, girl. She left that evening in (what appears to be a) knit black and white checkerboard skirt and crop top sweater set. Cute, right? Need I mention what shoes and bag she’s sporting? At this point, I haven’t seen anything I couldn’t find at H&M, so it’s kind of blowing my mind how attainable Gaga’s look is for me right now. Gaga’s beau, Christian Carino is in the background, clad in a black t-shirt and jeans.


Then, on Wednesday, we got a taste of vintage Gaga, as she donned a red lace bodycon mini dress and some impressive 10″ patent leather heels. Oh. My. Gaga. If it was anyone else, I’d give this look a boot, but it’s Lady Gaga. I bow to her for her ability to make walking in those shoes look so easy.


The heels have officially returned. 👠 (June 27, 2018)

Gaga left the studio that night in much more sensible shoes, but rocking a sweet Jimi Hendrix shirt and black jeans. Now, let’s talk about the wig. When Gaga’s hair wasn’t pulled back into a bun, she was wearing a Donatella-esque, bleached blonde wig. Buzzfeed is obsessed with it. I get it, my Mom wears wigs. You put it on and can zip out the door. It also spares your real hair from the damage caused by blow dryers and flat irons, so it’s a sage choice for Gaga, who I’m sure puts her hair THROUGH IT on a regular basis. It’s definitely not Drag Race-worthy, but, don’t forget, we are talking about Lady Gaga here. For the whole week, I’m going to have to give her tens across the board. Well played, Gaga.

    All I can think of is wearing those ensembles in this gross heat. I hope she used baby powder

  2. CidyKitty says:

    Awful. Its weird because parts of it could be cute, like separate pieces but all together it’s not good.

  3. Babs says:

    I only like the black tank top/black pants outfit. The rest is awful.

    • lucy2 says:


      I can’t imagine putting so much time and effort into all these various outfits and trying to walk in those shoes.

    • DismalNews says:

      Lady G has fab style – for her. Her “thing” is wearable art. I for one love that she obvs expresses herself. For me and my suburban mom ness, the only ensemble wearable for my rote wardrobe would be the suspenders. Let’s not forget she launched the leotard in stage trend.

  4. Snowflake says:

    I want to try a wig so bad but I’m chicken!

  5. Velvet Elvis says:

    Put me on Team Awful.

  6. Ramona Q. says:

    So, she is 6’ 1.75” tall (5’ 3.75” height + 10” heel) in those boots and her bodyguard is still about 5” taller than her in that pic?!

  7. Alsojay says:

    That bodyguard doesn’t really look like Jason Statham though. I had a bodyguard who looked a LOT more like Jason Statham.

  8. BaBaDook says:

    I’d say wearing wigs in the summer is so itchy. Not for me, but do your thing girl.

  9. Eva says:

    I just watched Gaga’s Drag Race episode and I feel like I understand her style now a lot better. It’s her version of drag, a way to escape herself / take on her entertainer persona. I really love it.

    • Agenbiter says:

      Do you understand why it needs to be full time? Seems like more of a burden than liberating at her age and level of success.

      • Lala says:

        Because the world is a stage…and the show is 24/7…I agree with Eva… I do LOVE IT!!!!!

  10. TurkeyLurkey says:

    The punk version of Amal Clooney, a different outfit every time she leaves. Exhausting…oh and attention seeking…

  11. beatrixkiddo says:

    She looks like a club kid from the 90s staggering home at dawn.

    The suspenders outfit is cute.

  12. tw says:

    I hate the small sunglasses trend. Make it stop.

    • minx says:

      They are awful.

    • tealily says:

      I inherited a bunch of small vintage sunglasses from my mother-in-law, but I just can’t wear them. I understand that they are on trend in this moment, but they are also deeply unflattering.

  13. Shannon says:

    I like all of these, but some more than others. I really can’t with those 10″ boots, but the dress is cute. But it all looks pretty hot for summer

  14. Esmom says:

    Other than the jeans, t-shirt and sneakers, which I love on her, it doesn’t strike me as street style as much as it does costume. That’s how she always comes off to me, like she’s playing dress up and the clothes are wearing her more than she is owning them.

    She used to be in Chicago a lot when her ex was filming his show and she hung out at my friend’s bar. She would just wear jeans and t-shirts or shorts, no makeup. That seemingly was the real her. Everything else is just a persona, I guess.

  15. Umyeah says:

    Shoes like that are ridiculous. She probably only walked five feet bc it would be impossible to walk any further.

    • Jane says:

      She is actually capable of doing some serious walking in those shoes. Google her crazy runway walk for the Victoria Secret fashion show of 2016. Personally I don’t like them on her, but give her credit for being able to walk in them.

  16. Aren says:

    I think she looks great. Maybe not trendy or unique like some of her past looks, but she still looks Lady Gaga-ish.

  17. Veronica S. says:

    For her, this is downright sedate. Remember when she was walking around in heelless pumps and see through plastic curtains with nipple stickers? Girl is embracing the coverage.

  18. bella says:

    I like the outfits, but not the shoes. I think the shoes are awful!

  19. Shijel says:

    Oh I hate hate hate those early 2010s bloody stiletto hooves

    But I’m very attracted to her in those black skinnies and tank. Thinner or thicker, she’s always had an amazing body.

    Also I want that obnoxious orange coat, but that’s more because I just really, really like orange clothes.

  20. Other Renee says:

    All pap strolls in costume. Every entrance and exit is designed for the waiting photogs.

  21. tealily says:

    She looks nothing like herself anymore.

  22. Wow says:

    It suits her. And it’s way better than wearing raw meat ensembles.

  23. huckle says:

    I don’t mind the clothes but I can’t get down with those giant platforms.

  24. Apalapa says:

    Does she not have fibromyalgia and sacroiliac issues? As someone with similar health issues, I cannot imagine wearing the ten inch heels. The pain would kill me.

  25. Pandy says:

    I vote Godawful

  26. Happy21 says:

    Don’t like the shoes, at all and I’ve been known to don some crazy shoes in my day. The other outfits are okay. I love the orange coat.

  27. DiegoInSF says:

    Oh to be able to wear different outfits throughout the day. I only do that once every blue moon when I go out during the day during the weekend and clubbing at night. It’s so much fun to dedicate hours on yourself… For me it’s kinda like therapy.
    I don’t see Statham in the bodyguard, I think Jason is hotter albeit shorter, way shorter.

  28. Yes Doubtful says:

    The suspender outfit and the checkered outfit are cute, but those hideous 90’s shoes need to go.

  29. Naomi11 says:


  30. raincoaster says:

    I normally love me some Zanotti, but these are heinous and dated. Like, dated five years ago. Platforms are DONE.

  31. FF says:

    She seems to go through style phases. If she’s having fun creatively with it and comfortable (and not indecent, or dressed in meat tbh) I can’t say it bothers me. Good for her.
