In the past, Lady Gaga has worn dresses made of meat, metal, bubbles, a hovercraft and Kermit the Frog stuffed toys, and now, she can add coffee filters to that bizarre list of materials. The pop star stopped by the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" studio in Austin at South by Southwest on Thursday evening, wearing a Gareth Pugh look from the designer's fall 2014 show, which just walked in Paris a couple of weeks ago.
Gaga told Kimmel that she was "upcycling" because the dress was, in fact, constructed of coffee filters. "You can do anything with your crazy ideas if you just put your mind to it," Gaga joked about the dress, before calling Pugh a wonderful designer and explaining that he'd sent her the dress specifically for the Kimmel appearance. When the host asked the singer if she felt constant pressure to out-do herself when it comes to her ensembles, she deadpanned, "I really wanted to be comfortable for the interview."
Luckily, Gaga took off the (likely very expensive) dress before her performance at Stubb's BBQ in Austin later in the evening, where a fellow performer proceeded to puke on her with green paint because, you know, art.
