We’ve known for awhile that Terry Richardson and Lady Gaga are total besties. Between their photo book, Lady Gaga x Terry Richardson, and the fact that Mama Monster shaved part of her head in honor of Richardson’s late mother, the two seem super close, and new photos posted on Terry’s Diary are only solidifying what we already thought. The cozy photos, which were taken backstage when Gaga performed with the Rolling Stones on the final date of their anniversary tour, show the singer in a variety of looks, both casual and stage ready. There’s even one sweater that looked oddly familiar, and it turns out to befrom Urban Outfitters! Celebrities, they’re just like us, right?! Unfortunately it’s now sold out, but the fact that the great Gags is clowning around in togs from one of our favorite suppliers of everyday clothes makes us feel pretty special. Or makes us feel like maybe we can relate to Gaga a little more? Ha! Just kidding, though, the rest of the images bring us back to reality once again, showing the singer in full velvet bodysuits, signed Rolling Stones jackets, and more untouchable insanity.
We’re SO INTO velvet these days. There’s just something so cozy AND kitschy about the fabric that’s perfect for the holidays, although we’re trying to figure out ways to bring some of our favorite velvet pieces into our year round everyday wardrobe as well. Certainly NOT for day to day wear, Gaga’s velvet plunge neckline jumpsuit took our breath away. We’ve learned that the catsuit, which was custom made by Ray Brown, was inspired by 70’s rock and in addition to stretch velvet also includes leather and crystals. Rock star life indeed.
Speaking of rock stars, the pop star got some serious rock god swag backstage at the show, copping a signed Rolling Stones leather jacket, featuring the iconic lips and tongue logo.
And last but not least, we have Lady Gaga’s totally creepy, totally awesome face mask/cage, designed by Mordekai, who was also behind the singer’s amazing crown that she wore for her Guggenheim Fame launch. It appears that Gaga was wearing the mask in the car with Terry, lending a whole new meaning to the saying “travel in style.”
