Lady Gaga in Custom Chanel Haute Couture

At the unveiling of her very own "Gaga's Workshop" at Barney's New York department store, superstar Lady Gaga debuted a one-of-a-kind custom fitted dress designed by none other than Karl Lagerfeld for the legendary house of Chanel. Clearly inspired by the classic tweed suit Mademoiselle Chanel is renowned for creating, Lagerfeld's white with black piping detailed design was an undeniable homage to the house's historic trademark style. Although, given Chanel's aversion to both figure-hugging silhouettes and excess fabric, the sweep of the dress was not something that would warrant the iconic designer's stamp of approval. Nonetheless, when dealing with the superstar caliber, and eccentric fashion sense, of Lady Gaga, one can only fully comprehend the blending of such an individual with the house of Chanel.
