From leather and fringe to frothy skirts and Swarovski coats - Lady Gaga's stage wardrobe showcases all sides of her iconic style. Creating a look specifically for her Joanne world tour, Lebanese-American designer Norma Kamali, who is based in New York, re-vamped one of her signature parachute material, 'sleeping bag' coats in a belted, scarlet red colour complete with a 10 foot train.

Revealing on her blog that she had first been approached by stylist Brandon Maxwell to collaborate on a costume, Kamali and her team updated the sleeping bag coat for Gaga and also created bespoke costumes for her dancers with more maneuverable versions of the style. This is not the first time Kamali, who is most known for designing Farrah Fawcett's iconic red swimsuit, has worked with Gaga on a bespoke look, having previously created a pearl-studded wedding dress for the signer's 2011 music video 'You and I.' 

Variations of the jacket will also be featured in an exhibit called 'Extreme Elements' at the Museum of Modern Art and you can buy a black version online now at normakamali.com, Gaga's red version will also launch on the website later this year.
