Lady Gaga kicked off her much-anticipated ‘artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball’ tour over the weekend (a show we can only presume she named on a day that her 'caps lock' was sticking), and we’re pleased to report her stage costumes more than lived up to the high standards she’s set across her career so far.
Gaga took to the stage in Florida in a whole range of weird and wonderful outfits and wigs, as she belted out her hits from ‘Just Dance’ all the way through to her most recent single ‘G.U.Y.’.
We’re happy to say Gaga brought full glamour this time around, compared with some of her more recent grungey fashion statements, including a phoenix-inspired outfit complete with a blunt, blonde wig reminiscent of her ‘The Fame’ era.
Meanwhile, in one of her… how can we say this?… more “unusual” outfits, she was seen wearing a wig made up of brightly coloured dreadlocks, which she matched with fluorescent furry boots. Not our favourite look, we don’t mind admitting, but we’re sure it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Our personal favourite of Gaga’s outlandish stage costumes came when she emerged onstage wearing an underwater-themed seafoam blue leotard, complete with bubbles and - the best bit - tentacles.
The star was really channeling Ursula the Sea-Witch from ‘The Little Mermaid’ as she made her way across the stage like a gorgeous all-singing, all-dancing octopus.
However, in one of the show’s less Disney-friendly moments the singer stripped almost naked and did an entire costume change on stage, treating fans to a glimpse of her bum before throwing on another of her outlandish costumes.
Lady Gaga will be bringing her ‘artRAVE’ tour to the UK in October, where she'll perform in venues around the country.
