Coat Porn: Lady Gaga in Alexander McQueen in London

Posted on October 31, 2013

Trust Steffi to know how to do Halloween. What’s more surprising is that this is another Coat Porn entry for the coatophiles out there.


Lady Gaga seen leaving her hotel in London wearing an Alexander McQueen dress coat accessorized with a Philip Treacy hat, Alexander McQueen boots and tote.

Alexander McQueen ‘Heroine’ Honeycomb Tote


Serving Couture Witch realness, bitches. We hate that she’s once again obscuring her vision but we can’t deny she looks amazing. We want Jessica Lange to wear this in the American Horror Story: Coven season finale when she goes into battle against Angela Bassett and Stevie Nicks.

A couple of queens can dream, can they not, darlings?

Happy Halloween! Let’s have candy corn for breakfast!

  • Now THIS look I can get behind 100%. Amazing coat. *lust* And that hat is an astonishing piece of sculpture.

    • Rhonda Shore

      It’s fantastic, though i prefer the model’s version with the red lining.

      • Gotta agree there. Love me a contrast lining.

        • Rhonda Shore

          The bag is really amazing too and I’m liking the pilgrim shoe trend (though not embracing it for myself).

          • tereliz

            LOVE that bag. We got a beehive last spring and I’m all about honeycomb patterns and of course anything with bees on it right now.

          • Qitkat

            Congrats on raising bees. My best friend has several hives in Florida, and she is quite passionate about keeping them. And the honey is so much more delicious than store-bought.

      • ballerinawithagun

        I know, without the red lining the coat is just so ordinary!

        • Rhonda Shore

          the red liner and patent leather belt make it look like a coat-dress vice a coat…

      • Kent Roby

        I could see this with various fun colors as lining, or even a graphic pattern so you just get a hint of it.

      • MoreShoes

        Nope, it reminds me of a flamengo dancer.

    • StellaZafella

      Duck lips suit a McQueen.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Dear lord, how I want that coat…with the original contrast lining, of course. And yes, Jessica Lange should be wearing this for AH-The Coven’s finale.

  • NMMagpie

    That coat! That bag! MUST HAVE.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I covet that bag so hard.

  • SewingSiren

    Nice to look at , impossible to actually wear. If the blind/visor was just a little shorter it would be astonishing.

    • 3boysful

      Well, insofar as she can only look down right in front of herself, must make walking in those boots–which I assume have really high heels and a platform–a tad easier.

  • Diego!

    Actually this is less costume-y than anything she has us used to seeing on her. I think she is rocking this look. I love that coat is STUNNING and also her boots! Way to go GaGa!

  • jilly_d

    Unreservedly love this. Everything about it is FABULOUS.

  • Sobaika

    W E R Q

  • Victor Beiramar Diniz

    forget jessica lange, i wanna see cathy cambridge in that coat!

    • YoungSally

      So does the good Prince….particularly if she wears it with thigh-high boots and not much else.

      • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

        And then Prince George could have a royal sibling.

  • Telperion

    Oh gorgeous, gorgeous. That coat is fab! Gimme! She’s rocking it here.

  • Karen Belgrad

    It’s raining in Chicago today… Do you think she’d let me borrow her umbrella…I mean… headpiece?

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Gotta whip out one of my favorite BK sayings for this one… YES!! ALL OF THE YES!! Love this look. Love love loooooove those boots.

  • Alexis Boucher

    The coat is gorgeous! And the good news is she can re-use the boots in a few weeks for her couture pilgrim outfit.

  • Vanessa

    Interesting–never thought to wear my hats sideways…

    • MoHub

      Is it sideways or backwards?

  • teensmom99

    Once again, doing well when she follows one designer through all the details.

  • Nariya

    I kind of love the hat. I am glad there exists someone in the world who will wear that hat, eye-shield and all.

  • MoHub

    Want that coat but with the original red lining.

  • MarieLD

    I need that coat. I’m 5′ 2″, though and, well, yeah… it wouldn’t be quite the same.

    • Nicole C

      I’m pretty sure Lady Gaga is shorter than you or the same height – look at her next to people and she is a tinnnny woman. There’s hope for you yet!

    • alyce1213

      Pshaw! She’s 5’3″ at most.

    • formerlyAnon

      Internet says: she’s 5′ 1″

      So what you need are platform shoes and custom tailoring to correct the proportions to you.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Apparently this get up had something to do with her family dog dying. I think it’s the best of the week.

  • xmixiex

    “Serving Couture Witch realness, bitches. We hate that she’s once again obscuring her vision but we can’t deny she looks amazing. We want Jessica Lange to wear this in the American Horror Story: Coven season finale when she goes into battle against Angela Bassett and Stevie Nicks.”
    This. Is. FIERCE.

  • Kathy

    I like it with the belt that’s on the model, but otherwise, this is pretty freakin’ amazing.

  • AmeliaEve

    With that hat and the full skirt it feels like a nod to the classic Dior New Look. Love.

  • carnush

    LOVE this look. She should be all about McQueen, all the time. It works like crazy.

  • RussellH88

    Ok, I love this. I’m a coat junkie (I have 3 coats I alternate through during winter), but I think I prefer the original mostly because I’m a sucker for a black/red combination.

    • I agree. My first thought was, “She should have gone with the black and red.” The blue would be great with a fuchsia/purple or acid green lining.

  • jonesybj_notreally

    ART is blind? or am I just being a grasping English major?

  • xmixiex

    i seriously can’t stop staring. THIS is the couture version of what i’m workin’ today. sigh.

  • Tanya Wade

    Finally, Madame Giggles gets it right. Yes, the coat is amazeballs. But I want to shout out to milliner extraordinaire Mr. Treacy. That hat is beyond fabulous and I love how the honeycomb is picked up in the purse. See? Even a blind attention whore finds a nut somedays.

  • Adrianna Grężak

    This is the most high end look she’s done in a while

  • MrsBug

    What’s with the duck lips lately?

    • imspinningaround

      She had something done to her mug while she was out of the spotlight rehabbing her hip injury, but I can’t figure out what it was. I think she looks great but it’s killing me that I can’t identify what work she had done.

      • Kate Andrews

        I think it’s hard to tell because we didn’t see her face unobscured until lately.

  • StelledelMare

    I. Need. That. Coat.

    And even if she is obscuring her vision, she seriously needs to dress like this more often than that craziness she’s been sporting lately.

    • Laura Renee

      At least she’s tidy, right?

  • Jaeda Laurez

    I do have to say this is by far my favorite look she’s had in a minute- that coat, the shoes, the bag- l want it ALL.

  • Erica Woods Tucker

    The coat is HOT. I think I would have liked the red interior more.

  • fringebenefit

    If she could just see to walk, the whole ensemble would be more perfect than perfection itself, but that little detail spoils it for me. That coat, however, is magnificent!!!

  • zenobar

    One day, one glorious day, THAT COAT WILL BE MINE.

    • formerlyAnon

      I believe the traditional accompaniment to this statement is either:

      “BwahahahaHA!” or “Mark my words!

      • zenobar

        Too true! Because I’m hatching a nefarious plot to kidnap that coat.

  • mjude


  • alyce1213

    The coat is beyond, and I love the buckled boots with it. I wonder what she’s got going on underneath.

  • rissa42210


  • jjtxgrrl

    The coat is heaven.

  • Patrick Cleary

    Her neck must be so tired after this trip, wearing so many delicately-balanced things on her head.

  • Jumpingjacks

    While I think the shape of the coat is beautiful and sculpted, the fact there is absolutely nothing happening besides shape makes it something of a bore. I need some beautiful detailing or a more interesting closure/collar..

  • Nancer

    OMG. I want to coat and the bag (maybe a bit smaller) and the boots…. Gaga can keep the hat. LOVE this! Though I think the coat with the red lining is the way to go – killer!

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Oh. My. God. That is dreamy coat. I might just print out pictures of it and pin it up my locker. Doodle our names together in my chem notebook. Whisper to my friends and giggle when it walk by. Yum.

    It really sings with the red lining, doesn’t it?

  • HVM

    Hand over the bag and the boots Gaga.

  • marlie

    Again, the Crazy Fashion Couture Gaga is the one that does it for me. This whole look is striking and head-turning and fashionable at the same time. I sort of wish she’d worn the same coat that the model had on (velvet, red lining), but she still looks amazing. And I COVET that bag.

  • histrogeek

    That is an awesome coat.

  • MilaXX

    Coat and bag envy. This is a Gaga look I can consign.

  • This is the most normal she looked in a while. Even with that hat obscuring, like, her whole face. She looks fuckin’ amazing.

    Meanwhile, the coat and the bag? What? Oh my word. Just hand it over to me.

  • gigi kennedy

    i wonder if she has the wig in her bag. hmmm….
    gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous coat. i die.

  • Kathy DelBeccaro

    How weird is it that the first thing I saw was a disembodied hand hanging off the right side of that fabulous hat? Gaga + Halloween must have made me do it. Love the whole look. Agree on the red lining.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I like the coat even better with the red lining, but dang. That is one sharp coat no matter how it’s lined.

    Eye-covering hats, on the other hand? Not feeling it.

  • GorgeousThings

    I have total lust in my heart for that coat!

  • Lily-Rygh

    Everything from the neck down is perfect! To me, this is personal best for her, hands down.

  • Kelly

    I had pumpkin/cream cheese donuts for breakfast, which I’m happy to report are just as sickeningly delicious/deliciously sickening as candy corn.

    Adore this coat, with or without the contrasting lining.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I am having feelings of lust for the coat. And the bag. Maybe the boots too. There’s plenty of lust to go around.

  • crash1212

    Perfection. Love that hat.

  • Lilithcat

    It’s a fabulous coat, but I like the model’s version, with belt and red lining, much better.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    WERQ. But how can she see where she is going?

    • sweetestsith

      Maybe she has an ear piece in? “forwards seven steps, now shift 15 degrees to the right…WATCH OUT FOR THE STEPS”

      The idea amuses me, at any rate. 😉

  • formerlyAnon

    Perfect. I was dubious those boots could ever be an asset outside of some fetish-adjacent scenario and she is making me think I was wrong.

    And that coat! I effing swoon before it.

  • KinoEye

    Head to toe perfection. Gimme everything but your hat and no one gets hurt. I do love the hat, but I will never have the style cred to pull it off. And my goodness, the black coat with red lining is so fierce it hurts. In the best way possible.

  • mmebam

    Ohmigod YAAAAAS! Lady Gagaaaaa! Yaaaaas!

  • AnniNoone

    God, *there* she is. Good to have you back, Lady. Stay for a while.

  • stubbornthoughts

    That’s more like it, Gaga. SNAPS.

  • Cathy S

    Oh my god that coat. That coat. I will have dreams of wearing that.

  • Violentcello

    Sooo … can she see through that thing? Because her handlers appear to be keeping their distance.

    • mlle

      It seems like there’s a gap between the front panel and her face; in some of the shots, especially the second to last, you see her looking down. So she can see a few feet in front of her?

  • mlle

    She’s clearly having a bit of a hard time balancing… where are her handlers?

  • leftcoastpickle


  • Ana the Hated

    LOOOOVE her

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    I can mostly get behind this. The coat is amazing. The gigantic eye-covering hat is just exhausting again. But yes, the coat makes up for it, as do the bag and the boots.

  • Hell yeah!

  • Imasewsure

    This is what I want from my Gaga! Couture couture couture with just a dash of crazy

  • Vaniljekjeks

    THAT COAT!!!!!!

  • julnyes


  • WintryMix

    Cal me crazy, but I could see Cathy Cambridge rocking that coat. With the polar opposite styling, OBVIOUSLY.

  • Aidan B

    Now THIS I can get behind. Not trying too hard, just fierce as hell.

  • Chase

    It’s as if Witch Hazel went haute couture. Fabulous.

  • Snailstsichr

    I personally covet the red and black coat, but I love what she’s done with the navy and black. This is a personal fav of her looks.

  • Winter_White

    Oh, the black version of the coat!!

    Has anyone seen the recent film Laurence Anyways? Midway through we see Laurence wearing this long coat: it’s beautifully cut and the color is rich, somewhere in the olive-green range. He comes toward the camera at a run in a blurry, very dreamlike shot….at first you just notice bright flashes around him and then suddenly realize: the lining of the coat is a glorious scarlet! I gave silent thanks that I was watching alone, and rewound over and over to look at that coat.

  • Love a contrast lining, but in this case I prefer the black. The red was too.. ecclesiastical for my tastes.

  • Daenyx

    DO WANT.

  • That’s a little more like it, Stef. I love every single piece.

  • Tracy_Flick

    The coat is gorgeous. The boots look cheap.

    God, she takes herself SO VERY SERIOUSLY. Lighten up, dear. You put your couture latex leggings on one leg at a time, just like the rest of us.

  • redhead with tattoos

    Every McQueen coat is coat porn. When I fantasize about my wedding I don’t imagine wedding dresses, but a custom made white McQueen wedding coat.

    Like it better with the color lining, though.

  • boweryboy

    When she does it right, it really works and doesn’t reek of trying to hard.

    Keep it up Steffi. This is the Gaga a lot of us want to see.

  • Synnae

    Who do I have to kill for that coat? Because lemme tell ya, I will!

    Other that that, I love this on Steffi, fierce, classy and totally out there!

  • SugarSnap108

    Good Gaga, that coat! Wish she’d worn it with the red lining, but she looks FAB.

  • The coat is stunning except in photo no. 3 where she holds the coat opened so we can see her bare thigh. The mask is too silly.

    Edit: I like the red lining–that she did not keep.

  • MoreShoes

    Now I’ll be dreaming of that coat. It’s absolutely perfect.

  • majorbedhead

    Oh my god, that coat on the model, with the red satin lining? I would crawl over broken glass AND dead grandmothers for that.

  • coat porn indeed! wowie!

  • Akemi


    (That hat is stupid)

  • CeeQ

    I already had candy corn and half a block of chocolate for breakfast. And I can’t even blame it on Halloween. It’s a day ending in “day” so therefore, overdosing on chocolate.

    I LOVE that coat on the model. I tolerate the coat on Steffi – I just prefer the one with the red lining. However, as you guys would put it, that tote is giving me LIFE.

  • traceyishere

    Luv it. It’s very edgy and wearable at the same time.

  • Sadie-Ann

    This is the Gaga I like to look at. Completely crazypants, but polished and what looks like thought behind it.

  • steeg of their own

    I WAAAAAAANNNNNTTTTT the coat. Wouldn’t say no to the bag, either. She’s so close to being stylish! The real thing that keeps her from ‘stylish’ for me is that none of this is about her point of view. She doesn’t have a point of view on fashion right now. So she’s not wearing potentially stylish outfits, she’s wearing random pieces, some of which happen to be more attractive than others. Please, Steffi, please. Develop a point of view and a consistent sense of what you want to say with your clothes. You have one of the most high profile fashion canvases ever upon which to paint, just figure out how to make a statement instead of doing the “I’m a portable clothes rack for other people’s disparate concepts” thing.

  • Esz

    Needs the red lining and the waist seam is much too low on her.

    The proportions aren’t maintained correctly without that belt.

  • GTrain

    Finally I’m impressed. What a fantastic look!

  • quiltrx

    This look is super-fabulous in my book! I want that coat and that bag, HARD.

  • Julaine Haraden Morley

    I note that, like the perfect Couture Witch, she’s careful not to break the line of the coat-porn coat with her “tote”.

  • jangma

    I love that coat, but oh my GOD that BAG

    *grabby hands*

  • PeaceBang

    Oh, oh, gorgeous. Love this a bazillion hearts.

  • guest2visits

    The coat, the boots, and the bag – gorgeous. It all looks good on her. However; I think if the coat is going to show a ton of lining then it needs to be more visually special like the red lining on the model. Even if it has a subtle contrast or pattern so it is part of the design of the coat.

  • Danielle

    I’ve got the BIGGEST LADY BONER for that coat. The red lining is stunning.

  • Viviennne

    I am just SOOOO tired of this attention seeking woman and her drag……..the hat is ridiculous …….
    just love the boots and coat though……

  • Lizzy

    Good lord she annoys. me.

  • Boocat Butterbee

    I want the coat with the red satin lining. OMG.
