Lady Gaga performed her Jazz and Piano residency show at Park Theater at Park MGM in Las Vegas last night, and her fashion was exactly what you’d expect from a Gaga Vegas show: doing the absolute most. Photos of Gaga in five different looks were released; each outfit boasts an extravagant hat, from a top hat to multiple feathered styles, and more than one dress had thigh-high leg slits and sequins. There’s also an extremely chic tassel mini dress. Basically, all the glitz and all the glam of a pop star tackling jazz in Vegas:
Gaga originally spoke to Vogue in 2014 about her decision to do a jazz album, Cheek to Cheek, with jazz legend Tony Bennett. The two just released a new jazz album, Love for Sale, on Sept. 30.
Gaga recalled of their original meeting, “Tony and I met years ago at a Robin Hood Foundation event to raise money for impoverished people in New York. I was singing that night, and my buddies that I’ve been playing jazz with for many years—I call them the Rivington Rebels, they’re from the Lower East Side—were in town, so I said, ‘Hey, do you want to sing a couple jazz tunes with me during my set?’ They said sure, so I sang Nat King Cole’s ‘Orange Colored Sky’ and George Gershwin’s ‘Someone to Watch Over Me.’ It just so happened that Tony Bennett was in the audience. After the show, someone said, ‘Mr. Bennett would like to meet you.’ I said, ‘Are you kidding me? Oh, God, he was here?’ I was mortified. I couldn’t believe I had just sung jazz in front of the great Tony Bennett. But I collected myself, put on something elegant, and met him, and he said, ‘My gosh, can you sing jazz. I had no idea. We have to do an album together.’ I immediately said yes, let’s do it. We did ‘The Lady and the Tramp,’ and because that was so successful, we decided to go ahead with the album. I don’t have any rules when it comes to where or how I release music. I always feel like if it’s good, it’s good.”
For Bennett’s 95th birthday this year, Gaga shared a loving tribute to him on her Instagram. “Happy 95th birthday, Tony!” she wrote. “You are forever my friend and musical companion. I love you...”
