You'll Never Guess What Inspired Lady Gaga's Shoes

Lady Gaga

We thought Lady Gaga‘s platforms looked familiar!

The superstar stepped out in Paris on Sunday wearing a pair of black shoes with heels modeled after the bottle (below) that holds her new perfume, Fame.

The shoes feature the same four futuristic gold prongs that make up the lid of the fragrance, which is the first ever black perfume (it becomes colorless once airborne).

The choice of shoes was fitting since Lady Gaga was in the City of Light to promote the fragrance. And we love that she found a subtle, yet ultra-creative way to tie her outfit to the event. (It sure beats wearing a tee with the name of the fragrance stamped on it, don’t you think?)

Gaga completed the look by wearing a black turtleneck, worn under a shaggy black-and-white topper. We’re guessing she was also wearing a few spritzes of Fame.

No word on who designed the presumably one-of-a-kind kicks, but we bet that, like most of the pieces she wears, Gaga had a hand in the creations. Tell us: What do you think of Gaga’s shoes? Do you think it’s a cool marketing strategy or just plain strange?
