The month or so between Thanksgiving and New Years is the most traveled part of the year here in the US. If you’ve ever had to take an airplane during this time, you know how much of a nightmare it can be. Between shrinking seats, rude flight attendants, and endless crying babies, no one would accuse air travel of being a comfortable endeavor. Which is why most people are happy to throw on a pair of yoga pants and a t-shirt before heading to the airport.
But not celebrities. Nope, celebrities could care less about comfort. Not when there’s attention to be had. And what gets people’s attention more than a batshit insane travel outfit? Nothing. In honor of the holiday season and all the many nutty things we’ll be seeing celebs wear, here are the worst of the worst that we’ve seen recently.
5. Lady Gaga (Pre-flight at LAX)
Here is her ladyship yesterday at LAX, headed to a 12 hour flight. For Ms Gaga, every outing is a chance to be a living piece of performance art. Even if that outing entails sitting next to a smelly stranger for 12 hours. Of course, Lady Gaga is mega rich, so it’s not like she’s sitting in coach, but still. I’ve been in first class, there isn’t that much more room.
4. LAdy Gaga (Post-flight in Tokyo, Japan)
Yes, this is from the same day at the previous picture. THIS is how Gaga looked when she exited the flight from LAX in Japan. It’s like someone called Ghostbusters on the last outfit and then Gaga stole their clothes and ran away. Also, the movie The Golden Compass called, they want their weird steampunk glasses back.
3. Nicki Manaj
Are those pants SATIN? There is no way that is comfortable. This wonder ensemble was also worn on a trans-Pacific flight. Can you imagine how uncomfortable her ladybits must have been after 12 hours or so? Not to mention wearing a wig. I hope girlfriend took that shiz off for a bit. There’s no way I could sleep with a wig on. NOPE.
Here is Ke$ha, channeling her inner-Michael Jackson with what can only be described as an “eyeball chic” robe. The fact that she can wear this on an airplane, but I can bring on a full bottle of toothpaste means the terrorists have won.
At first glance, this outfit doesn’t look too bad. But look close. Yup, that is basically ALL leather. Even her damn hat is leather (suede methinks). It’s not clear on how she ended up at LAX here, but I’m hoping it wasn’t a long flight, or Cher must have a puddle of sweat inside those boots.
