As part of Lady Gaga‘s ongoing efforts to be the human personification of pop culture pastiche, as well as to show off her conventionally attractive body in as “subversive” a way as possible, she wore a sparkly see-through jumpsuit and thong to LA’s see-and-be-seen spot the Chateau Marmont last night.
The look harkens back, of course, to the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards, when Rose McGowan managed to upstage an in-his-prime Marilyn MansonÂ by wearing nothing but a sparkly, see-through dress and a leopard-print thong. Young Stefani Germanotta was clearly watching from her parent’s Upper West Side living room thinking, “someday I will create ARTPOP from this dreck. Also, I am jealous that she grew up in a cult.”
She accessorized the look with some flesh-mutilating Louboutins, a big black bag, sunglasses at night, and her hilariously normal-looking boyfriend Taylor Kinney, who may never get to see behind the burqa but is okay with it because he loves having sex with fashion.
Modern day camera tech being what it is, we also get some insight into the verity of Lady Gaga’s numerous statements that she’s so comfy in her costumey contraptions that she doesn’t even change into pajamas before bed:
Her may mouth say one thing, but her angry red ass cheeks tell a different story.
