Look it, we're not CRAZY, we're not saying there's anything wrong with looking like Audrey Hepburn of all people. What I'd GIVE to be so lissome, long-necked, and doe-eyed. What's shocking about Lady Gaga's getup in Vegas for the iHeart Radio Music Festival is that it's SO ELEGANT yet REGULAR. Three-quarter length gloves, diamonds, a two-piece retro skirt-suit situation (possibly in WOOL CREPE??? <-- the cotton twill of the "ladies who lunch" set [whaaa??!]) with a tastefully demure clutch and suede platform pumps (that are still WILD FIERCE).

Of course there was, however, a costume change of the most Gagalicious order for the performance itself. Knee-high boots, a DRAMATIC, floor-length, black leather duster sprinkled with copious studs and spikes, a hat so big it has twin moons orbiting it, complete with tassels that lends its wearer an air of neo-colonial mystery because that ish looks like you're an empress hoisted atop the oiled shoulders of VERY STRONG, BASICALLY NUDE MEN who just carry you around, like even to just get Pinkberry. Oh, yeah, and there was also an enormous motorcycle with a bajillion exhaust pipes and countless springs jutting out like it was one of those old-timey cakes from Charm City Cakes
, from when before Duff Goldman was a reality television star. Plus, the motorcycle was a piano. So, definitely no worries that Lady Gaga is becoming pedestrian. None at all.
