Lady Gaga’s iconic outfits expected to fetch £20k at auction

Two costumes designed by artist Karina Akopyan, worn by Lady Gaga for her music video ‘911’ will be sold on Tuesday 8th December at Kerry Taylor Auctions, London. Interview with: Lucy Bishop, Specialist at the auction house. The black outfit 'Floral Alien’, which is expected to fetch up to £20,000, is a hand-painted and appliqued leather body-suit. It comprises eight separate pieces, which when joined and tightly laced, encases the body entirely. The ensemble is constrictive to an extreme degree and transforms the wearer into an imposing alien-like creature, towering at over 10ft tall, the body disguised and distorted by the extreme proportions.
