Gaga did the 'ol step and repeat (or, in her case, tiptoe in towering heels, pose, and repeat) for the 2013 Jingle Ball in L.A. wearing a wig that's hardly seen the light of day outside an Inez and Vinoodh photo shoot. Clothing-wise, Gaga was relatively toned down: A black bra peekaboo and custom Versace pantsuit do a girl good, reserved or not. The opulent, Little Mermaid-gone-bad aesthetic was then taken to new, ironic heights with an insane bib necklace of what appears to be dozens of golden seashells.
But, it's that knee-length dreaded weave, both literally and figuratively, that's the celluloid stunner here. There are secrets to be told in that thing on top of her head. There very well could be a couple hundred #BuyApplauseOniTunes singles hiding in there. The secret to owning 2014 might even have lodged itself in one of those dreads. Heck, rub two together and one might even start a fire (what magic! what mystery!). It might've been bra-and-suit jacket weather in L.A., but them dreads and their sorcery would've come in handy over here on the East Coast. Hopefully, Gaga'll heed our warning and stash this piece in her luggage when she pops on over here next.
