Designer Marc Jacobs had a celebrity showing at his New York Fashion Week presentation Thursday, and not just in the front row.
Lady Gaga and Kendall Jenner walked the runway of the designer's Fall 2016 show, and while the reality star has become somewhat of a fixture on high-fashion runways in the past few seasons, Gaga most definitely has not (unless you count the over-the-top looks she's worn onstage and on the red carpet).
Sure, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emily Ratajkowski, Zosia Mamet and Christina Ricci were among the attendees, but the evening's breakout star was the "Poker Face" songstress, who can now add "model" to her ever-expanding résumé.
"I've adored @marcjacobs @themarcjacobs since I was very young, so I was so honored to be one of his beautiful creatures tonight," she wrote on Instagram, where she shared plenty of behind-the-scenes photos.
Jacobs sent out a cast of noir "little creatures" on the runway at Park Avenue Armory wearing an array of Maleficent-inspired confections, oversized coats and tweeds.
"I was getting ready to do the Grammys, and I told him that I would do it. It's really wonderful that he brought me in as one of his models," Gaga told the mag.
The "Applause" singer wore Jacobs to the awards show and collaborated with him on costumes for the tribute.
On Thursday, she was transformed yet again, this time into a glam goth model with black lips and finger-waves in her hair for her strut down the stark white runway. Like the other models, the 5-foot-1 singer was elevated by sky-high lace-up boots and donned a pale green pussycat-bow blouse and a dark fur-trimmed coat. In the program, she was listed by her given name, Stefani Germanotta.
"My whole goal is to be here for Marc, making his vision come to life. It's not about me; it's about the clothes," she said.
The newly minted model didn't have to do a quick-change after the show either. She was allowed to walk right out of the Park Avenue Armory in her runway duds, according to Us Weekly.
But don't expect the Oscar nominee to jump the music ship for a career in fashion — at least not as a designer, anyway.
"The thing is, at the end of the day, I have a real respect for fashion designers, and it is the reason I don't have my own line and I probably never will," Gaga told the Daily Beast earlier this week.
"If I ever do anything in fashion it's always going to be as a muse or aesthetic creative. I like to be part of helping artists find themselves and feel good about who they are. I would never, for a second, claim to be a proficient fashion designer."
Model and muse though? That might be a whole other story.
