Lady Gaga at this year’s CFDA Awards and lookalike shoes from Karmaloop.
If asked to describe Lady Gaga, who has been seen in outfits ranging from leotards sans pants, a meat-dress and even an egg, ‘trendsetter’ wouldn’t be a word we’d use. Until now. Lately, we’ve seen increasingly more stores selling shoes inspired by her outrageous footwear: from cut-out heels to sky-high platforms, like the $88 pair of cut-out platform combat boots from Karmaloop, above (which would make a great addition to this year’s Lady Gaga Halloween costume, btw). Yearning for that Gaga look but too scared to go all out? Click through the gallery below to see options that are a little less “monster” and a little more wearable.
