Miss Steffi is still in her all-black post-breakup period, but at least she’s doing the best thing you can do for yourself after a breakup. She’s going out dressed to the nines and looking fierce. Her friendship with Tony Bennett would appear to be the real deal so it’s nice to see her picking herself up and getting out on his behalf.
Lady Gaga is seen leaving her apartment building and later with Tony Bennett to light the Empire State Building in honor of his birthday.
She kept things extremely simple and low-key (another indication that she’s just not in her normal attention-seeking mode). The dress fits her beautifully. The details like the straps and that fabulous hat take the whole look to a more sophisticated place. It’s quietly chic but still feels like her.
Lady Gaga attends Tony Bennett’s 90th birthday celebration at The Rainbow Room in New York City.
Here, she took a page from the Gwen Stefani book of chic. It’s as plain a dress as she’s ever worn, but she accessorized it with ten pounds of makeup – which she can handle quite well. Selling points here: the lovely bustline, the aforementioned makeup and the earrings, which make the perfect capper to the look. It’s all 21stC Hitchcock Blonde realness and we’re digging it.
