The 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show took place in Paris on Wednesday evening of last week, and it officially airs on TV on Tuesday local time. In amongst the hoards of ridiculously toned and tanned bodies courtesy of the models, there were also three standout performances from Lady Gaga, The Weeknd and Bruno Mars.
Unsurprisingly, Lady Gaga pulled out all of the stops for her two performances, wearing not one but five incredible outfits during her time on stage. From lace gowns to statement suiting, each was as spectacular as the last but it was a particular accessory that caught our eye above all else on the night.
For her final song, Gaga whipped out a custom black headpiece (to accessorise her sparkly jumpsuit) that contained 45,700 Swarovski crystals. The crystals adorned the body of the hat as well as 60 hand-beaded streamers that cascaded from its brim.
Bazaar was in the audience on the night and can confirm that Gaga worked the accessory like a true professional. At one stage, the hat became tangled on her mic which didn't stop her from continuing to sing as she artfully unwrapped the tassels and then sassily flung the hat over her shoulder. #getitgirl
WWD reports that it took 10 people and over 300 hours to make the hat, which was a joint effort between Gladys Tamez Millinery and Swarovski.
