Lady Gaga sashayed in a pair of towering heels on VH1’s season 9 premiere of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” on Friday.
The pop star stomped out in a head-to-toe dramatic look that included Pleaser USA’s “Beyond-087” pumps and a custom Perry Meek nude bodysuit with crystal detail.
Pleaser’s patent leather pumps feature crisscross ankle straps and a 10-inch heel. They’re are available for $99.95 on Ebay.com, and the brand warns that the shoes are “not recommended for walking or dancing.“
She completed the ensemble with an embellished mask that concealed her identity, and removed it when she revealed to the contestants, alongside host RuPaul, that she will be the guest judge.
Lady Gaga made a sleek transformation later in the show, opting for head-to-toe black with a tuxedo jumpsuit by YSL and skyscraper heels that resemble customized Brian Atwood patent leather pumps. She also went in drag for a segment, as a male named “Ronnie, from New Jersey,” and cut a boyish figure in YSL overalls.
The queens channeled different iconic looks from Lady Gaga’s past, re-imagining ensembles she has worn from designers such as Comme des Garçons, Jim Henson and more.
Last week on Monday, Pleaser announced on Instagram its new “Be Your Beautiful Self” campaign that will cater to its “larger footed fan base.”
