Lady Gaga in Jamie Wei Huang in NYC

Posted on August 22, 2013

Steffi puts in a little welding time with her Little Monsters. It’s something she likes to do.


Lady Gaga leaves a rehearsal studio in New York City in Jamie Wei Huang.

Because of course. A welder’s mask, a shower mat, and gigantic pants with a built-in menses canoe is just so Steffi, yes?

But we have a problem. You’ll have to scroll though at least one more Steffi outfit to find out what it is.


Lady Gaga stops to greet fans while leaving her apartment building in New York City in Balmain.

These are both fine for what they are and all. It’s perfectly Gaga. But both outfits are very similar to two outfits she wore earlier in the week. Like, so similar that we had to doublecheck that we weren’t featuring the same outfits twice. That’s so not Gaga. She’s clearly in something of a B&W mood at the moment, which is also disappointing, since it’s such a stylist-driven trend among the celeb set this summer. At least she’s doing interesting B&W. But sweetie, if we can offer some advice, if you find yourself wearing gigantic white pants or something that could pass for a Catwoman Halloween costume twice in one week? It’s time to shake things up a little. We know you’ve got it in you, girl. We suppose the toilet seat mask was a start, but we can’t say we love it.

    “Toilet seat mask.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    • Lily-Rygh

      Reminds me of Princess Beatrice’s toilet seat hat.

  • Kate Andrews

    I thought you guys had resorted to drawing on her face like Perez Hilton!

    • mjude

      i thought it was drawn on & i gasped! LOL

      • Me, too!

        • barbarienne

          The paps really need to quit jacking the contrast in P’shop before they release their images. I get that they want their stuff to look good and printable, but this is the internet age. We’ve seen too many fake outlines, overwhitening, and oversharpening on here lately.

    • mlle

      I thought she was wearing a cardboard snorkel Because Art.

      • kimmeister

        Art, that guy is always up to such hijinks.

      • carlaaxtman

        I thought it was a just Biore strip Because Blackheads.

    • Tess Danesi

      I thought it was drawn on too! This is not a good thing.

  • Merkin

    That white outfit looks like one of those Project Runway challenges where they have to design an outfit from materials bought at a bathroom supply store.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Maybe she’s just depressed because the hot ginger handler is no longer around. I never really got her thing, whatever it is, but her looks recently are missing some theatricality that used to be there. And it makes me sad that those white pants are dragging all over our filthy NY sidewalks.

  • Sarah

    Built-in menses canoe! That’s just incredible.

    • vahtel

      I know. THE BEST.

  • Paigealicious

    I kinda like the welding mask, LOL. I wish she’d stop wearing clothes that are so obviously inappropriate for summer temperatures…

  • Karen Belgrad

    These are a little harder to “Barbie”, so feel free to correct me with better options!
    1) Garage Sale Finds Barbie
    2) Grandma’s Wedding Reception Jacket Barbie (with boots from Runway Magazine’s closet)

  • flamingoNW

    “Clothes”: whatever. LET’S TALK HOT HANDLERS! Bald Blue Eyed Handler is starting to ease the pain of the loss of Hot Ginger Handler, I must say.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      I’m thinking we don’t need to get too emotionally invested in Bald Blue Eyed Handler. He already looks so over it all.

      • formerlyAnon

        But not looking nearly as exhausted as HGH looked in many of the photos from his last few months.

  • Emily Dagger

    Is the menses canoe perhaps a pocket to carry the toilet seat mask when it’s not being worn? They are roughly the same shape.

    (I can’t believe I’m trying to make any of this have any sort of logic, but there you are)

    • Sarah

      Looks like the mask made it to another person’s head there, in pic 3. She likes to share the cray, it seems.

      • rajf

        I wonder whether she had the mask on first, or if she spotted it, borrowed it for that goofy picture and returned it. Either way, credit for playing and having fun with her fans.

        • cbt22

          Yeah, it looks like the guy from the first picture is wearing it in the
          third picture (you can see his red pants and blue shoes). Since they kind of look like they’re posing together in that first picture, I’m guessing she may have borrowed it from him.

  • joancarol

    I think she’s lost her mind.

  • Kate

    Gaga is looking thin these days.

    Also, I LOVE her hair

  • susan6

    Can we talk about the hair? I mean…what’s with the hair? Is she trying to make it deliberately look fake?

    • rajf

      It looks very much like a mohair wig on an antique doll I had as a kid. It was not ombre, and the hairstyle was a ’20’s chignon/tuck, but damned if the hairline and texture isn’t the same.

    • Inspector_Gidget

      So, the Nicky Nichols wig is like a long-haul thing rather than a one-off? I think she needs to move on. Doesn’t look so hot without the orange jumpsuit.

    • demidaemon

      Chances are that it is fake hair.

  • bellafigura1

    Menses canoe. Beyond thank you.

    • MoHub

      The phrase makes me glad I’m past all that.

  • Just Me

    See now, I had to sprint by Madonna, dodge Heidi, clench my teeth with Lake and now you mount a final, deadly assault on my resolve to be nice and constructive today with a Gaga post! I give up. I’m just not strong enough. I will have to see you tomorrow for Sausage Friday Uncles TLo because sometimes “you gotta know when to hold ’em, know when fold ’em, know when to walk away and know when to run…”

  • Edward Thomas-Herrera

    It’s like she’s not even TRYING!

  • Monzerrat Ontiveros

    she looks like Paulina Rubio in the second look, which is not good at all. So passé

  • clatie


    • Not applicable

      that mask is just stupid. STOOOPID!

  • bertkeeter

    She’s a BORE!

  • Tess Danesi

    The black jacket is stunning…for an October evening. Along with black ass-high suede boots. Do celebs get their sweat glands removed? Do their super powers protect them from heat? Why would anyone wear white pants so long that they drag along NYC’s grimy sidewalks? So many questions, so few answers.

    • filmcricket

      Botox ain’t just for the face. A lot of ’em get in injected in their armpits, to stop the sweating. Just as dangerous as needles around the eyes, IMO.

      • Tess Danesi

        I thought I’d heard of that. But I can’t imagine Botoxing your armpits just so you can wear seasonally inappropriate garb. Then again, I’ve never been photographed on red carpets and step-n-repeats, under hot lights, with constant pressure to appear perfect, and sweat stains are damn imperfect. When thought of that way, I bet I’d succumb too 🙁

    • marlie

      And I’m guessing that one might not sweat too much when walking from an air-conditioned building into a waiting, air-conditioned car.

  • Belvane

    Is it just me, or is she trying WAY too hard these days?

  • abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxqyz

    a past tense trying to act like the present tense.

  • filmcricket

    I actually kind of dig the 2nd outfit, which is not something I think I’ve ever said about one of her get-ups before. It’s about as normal as she gets, I guess. And having finally watched that video: damn but she’s back in fighting form. Doesn’t make the song any less obvious or dull, though.

  • work it, gay boy with red hair! its your moment!

  • CakesOnAPlane

    Lady Shakir-ga.

  • Latin Buddy

    Paulina Rubio realness

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      She looks exactly like her in the second look.. but in a very bad way…

  • marlie

    I think this is almost an exact replica of yet a third outfit that she’s worn this week.

  • JaCory Deon

    In all these pics of her recently she has a very far away, out of it look/gaze. She’s looking eerily nuts these days and not in a good way. That and, dare I say it, she’s promoting that single a little too hard.

  • decormaven

    When Gaga starts repeating herself, fashion-wise, it does not bode well. She needs to blow it out of the water, pronto.

  • Judy_S

    These are tons better than the previous pair of b/w efforts. Except for the face squiggle, the white outfit is more comprehensible than the other one (which had a sort of waist squiggle, as if someone had cut her in two and placed a board between the upper and lower halves) and the black is far more interesting.

  • BP180

    But seriously, how does someone own one pair of giant flow-y snowboarding pants with a crazy waistline, and then purchase a SECOND pair of giant flow-y snowboarding pants with a crazy waistline!

    Apparently that is the Gaga equivalent of a normal person’s “How do I have 5 different black t shirts?”

    • kimmeister

      And in the same color, to boot!

    • kmk05

      Haha, I actually thought they were THE SAME pair! Clearly, I do not live in celeb world.

  • formerlyAnon

    If she hadn’t previously set the bar so high these would be fine. No more than mildly oddball in a “celebs who live in their own bubble” way.

    That wig, though.

  • kimmeister

    If the boots were knee length instead, I would so covet them. The silver soles are to die for.

  • Imasewsure

    She’s annoying

  • AuntHo

    I actually love that wig. I’m sure people hate it, with reason–it’s ridiculous, huge and ratty, but it’s a weird/somehow versatile color and I think it looks great with everything she’s worn. I’ll probably change my mind tomorrow.

    • NC_Meg

      I love it too. I have very fine hair and have always loved big curls/waves. Jealousy or living vicariously or something.

  • Bethany Roullett

    I thought she was going for Jake from ‘Adventure Time’.

  • When did she get her septum pierced?

  • OrigamiRose

    From the thumbnail, I was worried you guys had been hacked by Perez Hilton and his signature “picture squiggles.”

    I’m not sure the reality of her facial get-up is better though :/

    • LuluinLaLa

      I came to write the EXACT same thing re: Perez. It was not at all clear to me that was an actual mask, and not some MS Paint job.

  • I think she’s pretty; I think she’s talented.

    I can’t help but feel uncomfortable due to the constant attention she craves. I hope she can learn how to fill herself up.

  • Watts

    Fab new euphemism.

    “Darling, sorry I’ve been such a pill of late. I’ve been going over the falls in my menses canoe. Frightfully stressful.”

    • mhleta

      Ladies and Gentlemen, Aunt Flo from Redbank has left the building!

  • stubbornthoughts

    Did she give some poor spectator that hideous cardboard cut out of a welder’s mask?

  • Jaeda Laurez

    I feel like the second outfit is what happens when you say “Hey Gaga- I want to see what you would look like if you were possessed by Shakira.” BOOM- second look.

    • kmk05

      I am ashamed to say that I covet not only Shakira’s hair in general, but Gaga’s wig here. I am also ashamed to say that I quite like that second look! Like you said, it’s probably because she’s channeling Shakira.

  • Trisha26

    I don’t believe fashion rules apply to Gaga. And I’m perfectly okay with that.

  • Jacquelyn

    I don’t know what bothers me more, the hair or that…thing on her face. The hair is so obviously a wig that it’s distracting But that mask just screams “Look at me. I’m an artist. Can you tell I’m an ARTIST?! Does Adele wear a mask. I think not. Cause I’m an artist. Got it?” I find her (and her music, sorry to say) obnoxious.

  • snarkykitten

    She must stink to high heaven in that second outfit. It’s hot as balls.

  • CKMia

    That second outfit… Edward Monsterhands.

  • unbornfawn

    Wow. De ja vu all over again.

  • MilaXX

    She’s lost her mojo. I don’t even find her stuff the least bit interesting.

  • Anniebet

    Eh, all I can think of with the second look is with those boots up to her ass, what if she has an urgent need to visit the bathroom? She’d never get her pants down fast enough.

    And in the first look, her poses look based on the Madonna. The real Madonna, not Ms. Ciccone, mother of Lourdes, but Mary, mother of Jesus. She must have left the blue cloak at home.

  • ankali

    The Balmain jacket needs to be in my closet, please. The rest of the stuff not so much, but she looks nice enough.

  • quiltrx

    I thought you guys had gotten a Telestrator like the NFL! Mask…hmm…
    I knew that black jacket HAD to be Balmain…my favorite ‘almost overworked’ designer! I like it.

  • Therese Bohn

    I’m pretty sure I had those rainbow John Lennon sunglasses in the 1980’s (I still like them!)

  • RuthGo

    So she really has no sense of seasonality? I mean, I know you guys posted before that many stars are a season ahead but its still pretty warm here in NY. I’m wearing short sleeves. How is she not melting in a puddle of sweat in that second outfit?

    • mhleta

      It’s been downright humid that past few days on the East Coast. Plus, her body looks so slammin’ and her skin looks so great, she should show it off while the weather is in her favor. Save the ass boots for February.

  • judybrowni

    Okay, I’ll give her the giant plastic paper clip on the face is one up, if only for visibility, from the metal bottle cap hat the model is wearing, but…

    Where do those suede boots end up? At her tutu or what, anyway?

    In August? In Los Angeles?

  • [email protected]

    Any idea who makes the eyeglasses? Love them!

  • thecitysleeps

    Actually I love where she’s going with this. She can be interesting while still looking great and not just plain wacky. I love her hair and make up. And I personally love that white outfit, gigantic trousers and all.

    • mhleta

      I agree. I feel like you can actually see her beauty through these garments, where before she just looked like cyborg. But, the white pants are way too long and were probably ruined by the time she was done with this little sortee, and the wig is making my brain sweat. But, man, her skin and her body look amazing.

  • mhleta

    There’s a canoe for menses? Why am I just now hearing of this? I’ll take several.

  • Terry

    That hair, for heaven’s sake. It looks like there could be bugs crawling around in it.

  • Le_Sigh

    Did she get Beyonce’s weave hand-me-downs?

  • Coco Cornejo

    Get your damn pants hemmed!

  • Rusky Razvan

    The mask belongs to a fan.

  • Suse

    menses canoe ~ am adding that to my list of TLo-isms that make me deliriously happy!

  • KatrinaAtienza

    I’m digging the Natasha Lyonne wig!

  • shelley514

    It must be so exhausting rocking outfits that take so much energy and work to pull off. Lady Gaga does not believe in effortless anything apparently.

  • Kent Roby

    I was thinking that the Breathe Right strips had gotten really wacky!
