Sidewalk Style – Lady Gaga In Vintage Chanel

After Lady Gaga’s performance in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, she was spotted leaving the stage wearing a Chanel suit.

The gold suit embroidered with multi-colour crystals is from the Chanel Prêt-à-Porter Autumn/Winter 1996-97 collection.

From the picture below, the suit was originally presented with a gold belt, but Gaga opted for a black suede Chanel belt with gold medallions.

Vintage Chanel sunglasses, yet another pair of Christian Louboutin ‘Daffodile’ pumps, this time in gold, and a Chanel Mademoiselle bag completed her look.

I much prefer the original belt with this suit.

What do you think?

    The suit is absolutely gorgeous and reminds me of the Chanel Pre-Fall 2012 collection because I get an Indian feel from it. I think the original belt is better and the rest of the styling kills this for me. The hair and sunglasses are appaling.

    Jones19 that is the best suggestion I have heard in a while, I agree, light them on fire!!

    +1 Giuseppi Giraffe! Cate Blanchett should have worn this look.

    I prefer GaGa’s belt but I wish she would pile up her huge collection of Daffodils and set them on fire in her next music video.

    Barbara Bush?!!!? She wouldn’t be caught dead looking that tacky.

    Maybe what you mean is that Lady Gaga looks as old as Barbara Bush. Except instead of looking like an elderly New England lady, Gaga looks like an escapee from the Jersey Shore old folks’ home.

    Is it the shades, the heavy make-up, or that awful wig? Probably all of them. It’s not easy to make Chanel look so cheap.

    tacky mess as usual

    The hair and those sunglasses really make take it into caricature zone. The original belt was better too.

    Not feeling the pumps or earrings but I actually like the rest if it.

    OH NON! Mais pourquoi? Pourquoi fais-tu ça à CHANEL!
    To me it’s just a total mess. How to destroy an exquisite Vintage Chanel creation in 1 week. She just need to stop wearing Chanel. I hope that Chanel didn’t let her pick some clothes in the archives.

    Gaga makes it work for her. I don’t really like the suit to begin with. In the pictures it looks like something Barbara Bush would wear on a flashy day.

    I think my grandmother had something similar that she wore to country club events back in the day. Retro but not in a good way.

    the entire styling ruins it for me!!! the ponytail is horrible!

  12. Magda January 4, 2012 at 17:29 #

    +1. But I prefer this suit with original belt anyway.

  13. Giuseppi Giraffe January 4, 2012 at 17:24 #

    Agreed. Too much costume. Too much Gaga. Too much.

  14. Henrique January 4, 2012 at 17:15 #

    I’m not her biggest fan but I LOVE THIS LOOK. She looks absolutely fabulous.

    Not liking the suit itself regardless how she styled/accessorized it, it doesn`t really work for her figure/height.

    I kind of like this belt–the original belt would have really dated the suit in my opinion. The suit is GORGEOUS and I agree it is wasted on Lady Gaga. Could be so much better on someone with more class.

    I agree, Jacob.

    i hate that the sunglass always make her chin smaller, no comment for the clothe…

  19. Mol January 4, 2012 at 16:34 #

    I agree FC – the original belt looks better.

  20. JacobGH January 4, 2012 at 16:20 #

    Honestly this makes me sad. Gaga takes gorgeous pieces and makes them look horrendous. Despite her overall style, she just does not have what it takes to pull of actual “fashion.” Sad.

    Prefer it with the original belt. And the sunglasses look like they belong on someone in a Boca Raton assisted living home.
