Lady Gaga likes to keep things unexpected. So naturally, when it came time for her to headline Coachella, the only thing fans wanted to know more than her set list was what she’d wind up wearing. Taking to the stage last night in Indio, she opted to make an entrance in a sleek Mugler leather coat from Fall 2017 that did not disappoint. With its sharp shoulders and nipped waist, the fresh-from-the-runway piece made a dramatic statement, especially with the addition of a newsboy cap, thick leather belt, and grommet covered boots. It gave Gaga a powerful dominatrix vibe as she belted “Scheiße,” one that made it clear from the onset that she was there to rock.
For the rest of the show, Gaga and stylist, Brandon Maxwell kept the outfit changes minimal, transforming only when it added something special to the performance. Singing “Telephone” meant breaking out the merch with a crimson sweatshirt from her personal collection, while “Born this Way” offered the chance to switch to something a little more festival appropriate. By putting on a sequin-patched Balenciaga denim jacket and a pair of glittering thigh-high Adam Selman boots, Gaga looked ready for the ultimate dance party. Capping off her night with the debut of a new single, “The Cure,” she gave the crowd even more to talk about than her wardrobe—and with a second show coming next weekend, there are surely more surprises like that on the way.
