Is that a granny girdle, Lady Gaga?

Sure, she may be decked out in Alexander McQueen’s wildest creations most of the time, but apparently on stage Gaga is taking the innerwear as outerwear trend quite literally and mixing mass market shapers into her one-of-a-kind costumes.

A company called Kymaro is claiming that the pop star's flesh-colored body stocking, worn by her and her dancers during recent performances, is actually the Kymaro Body Shaper, which sells for $39.99 at Bed, Bath and Beyond and during late night infomercials.

Mixing couture with “as seen on TV” shape wear? It’s certainly not the craziest sartorial stunt to come from the singer, who has famously worn Kermit head clothes and lace over her face.
