Lady Gaga embraced the new TikTok challenge set to her own song “Bloody Mary,” from her 2011 album “Born This Way.” The music went viral after a sped-up version played on the Wednesday Addams’ school dance scene from the Netflix original series “Wednesday.”
Gaga showed off her dance moves with a gothic twist. The singer was dressed in her best rendition of a Wednesday-inspired outfit, along with sky-high heels.
Her outfit consisted of an oversized black blazer layered overtop a dainty lacy white high-collared top that aimed to mimic the many collared dresses and sweaters Wednesday wears in the show, staying true to character. On bottom, Gaga sported high-waisted shorts.
Offering extra inches to her ensemble, the Grammy-winning performer sported a pair of black Stuart Weitzman platform Mary Janes paired with knee-high argyle socks. The towering platform pair featured chunky soles, thick sturdy straps, leather uppers, squared toes, and towering block heels reaching 5 inches in height.
Gold buckle closures offered an all-around secure fit, ensuring that the shoes weren’t going anywhere. The platform construction helped compensate for the exaggerated heel, allowing for more height than a traditional pump without causing the wearer pain or discomfort.
When it comes to shoes, there’s no style too bold — or heel too high — for Gaga. The “Paparazzi” singer‘s red carpet looks often feature platform sandals and pointed-toe pumps from luxury labels like Christian Louboutin, Versace, Brian Atwood and Alexander McQueen. When off-duty, she’s been seen in sneakers by APL and Nike. More recently, she’s returned to wearing her signature towering Pleaser Shoes boots from the late 2000s for everyday wear — which often boast heels ranging from 7 to 9 inches in height.
“Wednesday” is a spin-off of the classic “The Addams Family” that follows Wednesday Addams as she starts in a new school, the Nevermore Academy, and attempts to thwart a killing spree and solve the mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago. Jenna Ortega plays Wednesday in the Netflix show.
