Lady GaGa opted for a very sophisticated approach to dressing whilst co-hosting The View earlier today in New York City.

She also performed her new single, “You And I” on the show.

The singer, who’s known to wear either outrageous looks or not much at all, wore a Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2011 look.

The look included a houndstooth printed silk dress, houndstooth painted python pumps, houndstooth glasses, a houndstooth hat, a houndstooth painted python clutch perched atop her houndstooth printed piano plus a multi-strand pearl necklace.

Her interview cue-cards were also backed with the houndstooth print.

Is GaGa having fun with fashion or has she ruined houndstooth for you forever?
