Lady Gaga came about as close as possible to wearing nothing but her birthday suit to the Roseland Ballroom Friday.
The pop star, who's celebrating her 28th birthday by kicking off a seven-night engagement at the famed New York City venue, got out of a rose-festooned taxi wearing nothing but a (are you surprised, yet?) sheer body stocking with strategically placed roses covering her breasts and naughty bits.
We'd say top and tail, but you could totally see her butt. Graphic nudity was prevented by the flesh-colored G-string she wore and the aforementioned clusters of roses—though she only had one sole bloom poking out of her behind.
How very Cher.
She capped off the look, literally, with a ruffled sheer red veil that matched the roses. Gaga went pink in the footwear department, however, teetering on mile-high tentacled platforms with red ribbons tied around the ankle.
And would you believe that this might not have been her weirdest outfit of the day?
Gaga stepped out earlier in a white, tiered, George Washington-wig-style cap and a massive coat with squared-off shoulders that merited her astute comparisons to the wardrobe-come-to-life in Disney's animated Beauty and the Beast.
We won't argue.
But we do indeed wish Gaga a very happy birthday, as well as a successful (vomit-free) run at the Roseland, which will be closing its storied doors after the pop star's final encore.
