Lady Gaga in Atelier Versace in NYC

Posted on August 27, 2013

Steffi popped out of her apartment to make a Tampax run.

Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Collection

We don’t even know.

It’s as attention-seeking as we would expect, but man is it ever ugly. And what’s up with the harsh makeup? And what’s the point in wearing a different wig every 12 hours if all your wigs look pretty much the same after a while?

We want to understand, Steffi.

    It looks like our job was done for us, since she looks like someone already slapped her for going out looking like a hot mess.

    • And judging from that last photo, she mistook the slap for a high-five.

  • And is it part of the point that all your wigs of late look like they were fished out of a close out bin at Wig Barn?

    • formerlyAnon

      Surely it has to be. I think??

    • zenobar

      Please tell me there is an actual place called “Wig Barn.”

      • MikeW_Vegas

        I know there’s a place in South Dallas called “Wig Paradise”. my sister and I used to joke that this was the place that wigs go to die. But it looks like Steffi has been going through their garbage.

      • Sadly no. But there really ought to be, right?

        • D J H

          This just in: I am starting a shop called “Wig Barn”. Bales of hay…free range chickens…corncob pipes…and that’s just the wigs!

          • I am more than a little in love with you just now. Brilliant!

    • Kate

      It would help some-notreally-if it were pushed about a quarter of an inch forward on that five head she’s got going on.

    • tereliz

      Right? That wig looks so ratty she may have found it in an actual barn. Where’s a white-gloved wig-caretaker with a comb and silicon spray when you need one? Wig Barn, lol.

  • flamingoNW

    It certainly is sparkly!

    Believe it or not, this is her AIRPORT outfit. She gonna need one of those blankets they give out on the plane.

    • LadyCelia

      I think she’s planning on using the wig as a blanket.

    • BitterOldQueen

      It was also her after-party outfit post-VMAs, so it was getting a good wearing. Probably accounts for the makeup disaster, too–she’d been, um, partying.

    • kimmeister

      And everybody who sits on the seat after her will need to boil themselves afterward.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    She looks a hot mess, but it’s amazing how much more relaxed she looks in pants. (I’m also thinking off the previous looks TLO blogged)

  • Cloveradams

    What I want to know is where a civilian is supposed to wear such an outfit. Even Nomi Malone would’ve thought twice about this one.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      They’re not. I hope?

      This one is clearly for Gaga and…Shannel maybe?

    • formerlyAnon

      To my mind, that’s like asking where a civilian is going to use their set of surgical scalpels. For all parties concerned, better off not.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Okay, it’s bad enough that she looks beyond ridiculous. But on the other side of the coin, I am LOVING the huge proud smile and that confident strut in picture #4! It’s that “Hey World! Here I am!” demeanor plus the outfit that spells out “Get the butterfly net.”

    • NinaBoo

      I am LOVING the damned handsome men she has surrounding her. *fans self*

      • Louise Bryan

        Looks like she turned in Mr. Ginger for Mr. Vin.D

  • MilaXX

    I cannot with the awful lace front and try hard clothes she keeps trying to make us interested in. Gaga can go have a few seats alongside Miley.

  • mmebam

    Lord, serving Eurotrash Discoteque realness…

    And baby girl is a sneeze away from a nip slip.

    • marlie

      A sneeze, a cough, or even a deep breath…

    • barbarienne

      No, I think she’s got nipple covers on. Which to my mind makes it even weirder–why wear a lace bra as a top if you’re just going to cover your nipples? But of course GaGa is not doing this for the same reasons other people might.

      • rh33

        And if you are going to wear covers, make them hot pink and sequinned.

  • OrigamiRose

    I can’t put my finger on how she makes everything she wears, that no doubt has cost countless thousands of dollars, look incredibly cheap.

    • Sarah

      Ratty plastic-looking wig? Clown makeup? Yards of nudity? Just a hunch those might be contributing…

      • Imasewsure

        Yes and I’m no longer buying the edgy or couture vibe we are supposed to be swallowing… cheap and itchy, that’s the new vibe unfortunately

        • Sarah

          And how. I did not have an opinion on her, because I don’t live in the 21st century, musically, but I would hazard that there are ways to be edgy in fashion without looking like a cat toy.

          • Imasewsure

            A cat toy… that’s it exactly! 🙂

        • OrigamiRose

          Throughout all of her countless incarnations, Madonna has never, ever looked cheap. Steffi should take note.

      • AnneElliot

        I love “yards of nudity.” Brilliant!

      • OrigamiRose

        All of the above? :))

        (Am I the only one never getting email notifications for replies on Disqus? *sigh*)

        • Sarah

          I have given up expecting their notifications to be at all reliable. If you go to your dashboard on the disqus website you can just see what’s going on (what you’ve written, what ppl have replied). Its a little better, but you’ve gotta refresh now and then or that won’t even work. Irritating.

          • OrigamiRose

            Ohh thank you for the tip! I kid you not, got your above reply in the mail at the same time as a notification for your original reply from yesterday.

            Is that your kitty in the av? It’s a cutie!

          • Sarah

            It is. That is Mandy (or Manders) who, of my four, has the most laser-like eyebeams, which she saves for gazing at me with adoration. She is impossibly cute. We call her Perma-Kitten because she’s 5 but still little, like a minicat. She is also a Tolkien scholar, holds a doctorate in philosophy, and enjoys big band music when she’s not designing eco-friendly summer camps for underprivileged youth.

          • OrigamiRose

            Oh, she’s a doll – she sounds like a potential Sustainicat! *smile*. I had a little guy with similar coloring; he was my little poet, she looks and sounds a lot like him. Now I just have one, a long-haired Himmy who introduced me to the world of dingleberries and butt baths. You’d never think there was such a difference between short hairs and long hairs but that first time they turn and walk away and you see a poo ornament on their behind and you have to debate whether or not to deal with it, well, that’s a whole other world 😮

          • Sarah

            I know this phenomenon. I grew up with a fluffy maine coone. I have a medium haired guy now, Jasper, who is very fastidious, thank god. There is nothing worse than having to hold a cat down while you scrub its asterisk. I had a roommate for 8 yrs who had a longhaired white female who was a gorgeous, cruel princess, spoiled to fatness that would not allow her to clean her own bunghole. I cringed every time I saw her laying on my bed. I had nightmares about how much fecal matter was spreading around our house…

          • Sarah

            I replied to you, then it said I didn’t so I typed it again, so then it was there. Jeez.

          • OrigamiRose

            Disqus sucks 🙂 Just reading about your kitties and will respond above 🙂

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Airport outfit? TSA had a bit of a task ahead of it. Then again, so did Steffi to doff that nutty footwear.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Well, except for the shoes this outfit would probably make their task would be pretty hard to hide anything in a mostly see-through jumpsuit

  • kmk05

    Selena Gomez wore that bra better.

    • kimmeister

      I feel like those bras are not flattering on anyone. They make breasts look . . . not like breasts, or something.

      • kmk05

        They really only work if you have an A or B cup anyways. They also seem a bit… outdated? Like an ‘of course’ for Versace and something we’ve seen before.

  • That handler is giving some SERIOUS face in the background!

    • Linda LaPaz

      Hot handlers, though!

  • bertkeeter


  • “Ignore me at the VMAs will you? I’ll show you, I’ll make you go blind looking to see if I am in fact showing my areolas. You will pay attention to meeeeeeeee!”

    • Rusky Razvan

      Let it go, sister.

  • MoHub

    I was gonna say something, but I’m at a total loss for words.

  • Jacquelyn

    How much blush is she wearing??? That wig needs to be burned, already. Everything about this scream, “Pay attention to me! I am an artist of the highest caliber and this is how you know!” Ugh.

  • Synnamin

    I… what…. o_0?

    I loves me come Gaga Costume Cracktacular as much as the next person, but when you go out looking like Mary Ann’s backwoods cousin LouAnne after an all-night Avon-lingerie party, I have to wonder: “GURL. What is going on in your head?!”

  • Trisha26

    With Gaga it’s all about self-expression, no one dictates her look and I never expect conformity except to her own rules. (Note to TLo: please come up with a male-related comment equal to “Tampax Run” for your next guy post. Thanks.)

    • “(Note to TLo: please come up with a male-related comment equal to “Tampax Run” for your next guy post. Thanks.)”


    • Glam Dixie

      I think it’s called a beer run.

    • marlie

      I don’t think anyone around here expects her to conform to any standards. She’s always been graded on a “Gaga scale,” and even for her, this is pretty disappointing. A few months ago, she might have gone out looking WAY out there, but each outfit was perfectly put-together (including hair and makeup). This outfit lacks that last bit of finishing.

      • Imasewsure

        I think she’s running out of credibility (and incredibility) in terms of the “standards” or the “Gaga scale.” She’s becoming Madonna’s glove

    • Betsy

      Condoms? Porn DVDs??

  • Diego!

    What a disaster… you forgot to mention her wig, which is hideous and I just can’t say anything else about her, in the past she was copying Madonna, now Cher, who’s next? Mariah Carey? Gee… Steffi get a life!

  • Matthew Davie

    She’s surrounded by gays and has jillions of dollars – why can’t she get some decent help putting on her wigs? She needs to call John Travola’s people…those folks can at least handle the proper fitting of a lace-front.

    • formerlyAnon

      I swear it’s intentional, though I can’t see why. She’s got a track record of doing way better than this with wigs so it’s neither ignorance nor lack of resources.

      • I wonder if her funds are being snorted up in other areas. She’s got that shiny faced, teeth gritting, manic smile that leaves me feeling cynical. Maybe it’s her new post surgery fitness routine.

        • jabes

          That rictus is positively scary. I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed!

      • Imasewsure

        EVERYTHING she does is intentional… I’m kind of thinking this is like Xtina’s grunge phase – and hopefully it will morph in to something else (anything else) soon

  • bxbourgie

    I’m wondering if the wig looking like A WIG is on purpose. I mean preserve the mystery girl, at least make it LOOK like your real hair. Jeez. She’s working that “trying to hard” category for me. It’s like she’s constantly trying to find way to top her self which makes her look more and more ridiculous with every outfit and appearance.

    • marlie

      We always knew her wigs were wigs; I don’t think anyone was under any delusion that the were her real hair. But I wonder if (and sort of hope) that the lack of “polish” that she’s been sporting is that way for a reason.

  • Terry

    That hair is just plain nasty looking, like there could be a family of spiders living in there without her knowing.

  • GorgeousThings

    My initial reaction was:
    Hahahahahahahahaha! Snort!

    But I will give her props for stopping to take a selfie with one of her fans. She does, indeed, live for the applause.

    Still, Hahahahahahahahaha! Snort!

    • formerlyAnon

      The care and feeding of fans will keep you [financially] whole.

      • decormaven

        This gal is crazy as a fox. Long as she keeps her fan base happy, she can, and will, wear anything she wants. I just wish she would lose the current penchant for ratty wigs.

  • Orange Girl

    The bald bodyguard on the right in the first pic is gorgeous.

    • ewes_urn_aim

      I’m with you. He’s dreamy.

    • alyce1213

      That’s Hot Bald Handler, he’s been with her awhile.

  • Folk Devil

    I feel like she saw Miley Cyrus and realized that she needed to step it up in the crazy department.

  • Beardslee

    So exhausting.

  • alyce1213

    Does she sit for for 7 hours on the plane to London like that? Does she change? Does she change wigs?
    I really wonder.

    • Paigealicious

      It’s probably not too uncomfortable when you’re in first class with those fold out beds/cubbies they have nowadays.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I’ll take two of tall, bald and bulky in the all blue ensemble, please.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      YES PLEASE. Those eyes!

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      With a side of chocolate sauce to dip him in.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    I am not on board with this homage to Nomi Malone.

  • mlle

    That bra is really bringing the term “boob holster” to another level. That jumpsuit is even uglier without the mesh. Her sunglasses are still cute, though.

  • Glam Dixie


  • MK03

    Bellevue Barbie.

  • formerlyAnon

    I’m waiting to find out why the string of awful looking wigs is happening.

    Suspect I’ll be waiting a while.

    At least it looks like she’s working her way back into the swing of things. Dreadful blush is the only thing here that bugs.

  • greyhoundgirl

    At least she’s wearing a bra.

  • Paigealicious

    Same wig, same shoes..zzzz

  • We Shall Overcome

    That took a maximum amount of time, with little thought. Oh, the hughmantee!

  • Not applicable

    omg- that is such a hilarious opener! funny that her nip covers are showing… playing it safe stef??

  • gregSD

  • clairellis

    I can’t with her. She looks fucking horrid.

  • MarissaLG

    That wig looks a lot more Scotch tape, than lace front.

  • crash1212

    Hopefully she changed into sweats in the car, elsewise she’s gonna catch a chill on the plane. Love those sunglasses.

  • Joanna

    She just looks . . . cheap. In the past, yes, she was cray cray, but she at least looked fairly thoughtful and reasonably expensive. The wigs look cheap. The clothes look cheap. Everything (especially the wigs) looks like it is highly flammable H&M disposable clothing. Which is a damn shame, considering that the cost everything she’s got on is probably the equivalent to my monthly mortgage payment.

    • marlie


  • Lilithcat

    And people wonder why NYC co-op boards often won’t approve some celebrities.

  • marlie

    Miss Steffi is off her game. The outfit is ugly, and not even all that interesting, and the wig looks like a rat’s nest. And the makeup? Her heart doesn’t seem to be in it anymore.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Props for wearing a bra.

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    I prefer runway look.

    • conniemd

      Really? You can see the nipples in the runway look and there is no way the necklaces stay in place. I was actually giving teeny props to Gaga for a least wearing a bra.

      • AnneElliot

        And the other runway look behind was just ghastly from the back. Who in their right mind would wear this, other than Gaga?

      • Monzerrat Ontiveros

        yeah but it is stylish

  • sweatpantalternative

    Oh. My. Just because you can wear anything you want doesn’t mean you should.

  • Constant Reader

    • Howard Sturrup

      ! ^_^ !

  • YoungSally

    The best part is that she wouldn’t be the most insane person in Duane Reade in that outfit.

    • Imasewsure

      What a great visual… love it

  • Imasewsure

    This is more Amanda Bynes and less Gaga every day… hope it’s a phase because it’s boring and worrysome at the same time

  • Kate4queen

    I’m so tired of seeing her bra.

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    Is she gonna fly tlike that???

  • Dawn Sinclair

    The 80’s called, they’d like their work out gear back

  • Blair Sylvester

    Cute handler. That is all

  • Anniebet

    Bugs Bunny called. He wants his teeth back.

    • Rusky Razvan

      That’s rude.

    • AnneElliot

      That’s just mean.

  • Nancer

    I miss ginger handler.

  • I’m not having fun with this any more. I used to be able to get behind her art and style and whatnot, but now I am seeing a cry for help.

  • Rand Ortega

    Who cares. Steffi drag a million point Oh. Look at bald handler in the blue suit. Delicious, much?

    • lobsterlen

      He’s alright but I will always remain faithful to the ginger Lady Ga Ga handler. I am just a one Lady GaGa handler type of girl. If nothing else I am loyal.

      • Rand Ortega

        HGH will always reign supreme. I’m just diggin’ what’s there. This 1’s got a machismo Jason Statham vibe sans douchiness I’m finding very alluring.

  • lac87

    Pro tip: if your bra doesn’t cover your nipples, you can’t wear it as outerwear.

    Am I really the only one who sees her pasties peeking out?! Flesh-colored, silicone pasties are NOT fabulous.

    • DuBey2

      Well, I prefer them to the alternative.

  • Tess Danesi

    Maybe we’re all wrong. Maybe we should all dress like that for our transatlantic flights 🙂

  • Kent Roby

    Wow, I’ve never seen this wild side of Chelsey Clinton!

  • thecitysleeps

    So unflattering.

  • Judy_J

    Perhaps it is the lighting, but she looks in need of a bath.

  • Britney

    Her current style attempts seem lazy, to me. Which is never a word I thought I’d ever use to describe Lady Gaga. Particularly in terms of her fashion.

  • GillianHolroyd

    I dreamt I stopped traffic… in my Maidenform bra

  • Erica_Vuitton

    She’s still using the same hair person so I really don’t know what the excuse is for these wet dog wigs with exposed glue hairlines. Nope nope nope clean it up Freddie you slippin just like that wig is slippin off her head!

  • Imasewsure

    I’m sure it’s just the lighting (no it’s not) but she’s starting to look like Grandma Yetta from the Nanny

  • A Shiny O’Connor

    Freddy Mercury’s dream pants.

  • lobsterlen

    Oh Lady GaGa please bring back the ginger handler we miss him. We will always say nice things about what you are wearing if you bring him back. Until then that outfit sucks and so does your makeup and hair.

    Signed Bitter Kittens

  • Laurie Landry

    Cute bra. Odd suspender jumpsuit deal.

  • suzinrva

    Frederick’s of Hollywood Glitter and Glam Mesh Bodystocking. Yes, I said it. BODYSTOCKING.


    Many folks herald Gaga as a style star but she has been working the same platform shoes and ‘I’m so weird but I’m totes sexy too” outfits since 2008. Perhaps her style was (for lack of a better word) ‘edgy’ then, but she just looks so out-of-step and dated these days.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    Being a gay male who doesn’t understand the ‘girl part stuff’ this is exactly what I imagine todays woman wearing to go buy tampons (you forgot the part about running slo-mo thru a field of sun lit daisies…).

    yeesh, that wig. Is the zoo selling off the gorilla house shower drains?


      The only part wrong here is that the unitard isn’t white. They all wear white in the tampon ads.

  • Eric Stott

    It’s like something out of the “Cheap Cougars Catalog”

  • guest2visits

    We watched Breaking Bad and then the inevitable 45 minutes discussing it after. So we missed a bunch of the VMA’s. I just saw Gaga’s ‘Applause’ clip and the contrast between hers and Miley’s act is like night and day. One with an artistic message and the other consumed with herself.
    Still; this outfit leaving the building is almost manic. It would be nice to see the not naked, not costumed, Gaga. Oh well. Cool bra.

  • Jaime

    I am amused by the girl in the background apparently giving stinkeye to the girl whose camera/phone Steffi is using for a selfie…

  • Cynica

    Is Hot Bald Handler wearing a bulletproof vest? He’s growing on me. Gaga? Yawn.

  • quiltrx

    That is precisely who I see here–these pics must have been mislabeled. From the flashy unitard, to the big excessive hair, to the makeup…and hell, even that last facial expression…this is, absolutely, Dee Snider.
    I don’t remember his tits being that small, though.

  • Afabulous50

    That bra is an exact duplicate (though smaller) than the one Madonna wore during her tour.

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    Let’s hear it for Hot Bald Handler!

  • She concerns me. Lately her choices lack the wit that made her so much fun to watch originally. I have no idea what’s going on here but it’s not good.

  • Mefein

    I don’t know if you’re going to cover what she wore out and about in London today (pink bra, trashbag overalls, and enormous wig), but I’m gonna call it one part Alaska, one part L’il Poundcake…

  • Caroline Harper

    i just really miss hot ginger handler.

  • Sushy Gooroo

    Any drag queen competing in Rupau’s Drag Race wearing make up like that and drag like that would have had to lipsync for her life after sarcastic remarks from both Santino Rice and Michelle Visage, and then being told to sashay away by Rupaul without any kind word of goodbye.

  • kathrineb

    That is a very ugly outfit! Its like what Hedi Klum would wear…If she dialed up the tacky.

    • sagecreek

      Yep…and when you’re too tacky for La Klum, that’s sayin’ something.

      • kathrineb


  • Qitkat

    I feel sorry for the first class passengers.
    And is that a nose ring? Good Grief!
    What a summer. You can’t swing a cat these days without hitting someone’s nipples or vagina.

  • snevhead

    I miss the days when people tried to pretend they WEREN’T wearing a wig.

  • LondonMarriott

    Speaking of, if we could get a MSCL and OITNB I think I would explode.

  • Lenora Dody

    I guess being Gaga, she can’t just wear sweats or jeans but this looks remarkably uncomfortable for the plane ride to London, even in first class.

  • Gauss

    This is how she’s getting on a plane to London? Won’t she be… I don’t know, cold or uncomfortable? Yikes.

  • Dagney

    Why is she wearing Dolly Parton’s wig?

  • LJCdoc

    At this point, I have no idea what her real hair actually looks like.

  • Fred Vaughn

    How gynecological of her… BTW, the wigs are starting to get tired already!!
