No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, and it isn’t a bag for a small child.
Lady Gaga is holding the smallest bag you’ve possibly ever seen. It’s a Delvaux limited edition from their Couture Exclusive collection. Lady Gaga is carrying a version made of black box leather embellished with leather flowers… and it looks ridiculous.
This year’s Met Gala theme is camp, which is basically tongue-in-cheek fashion… so Lady Gaga, queen of costumes, wore a giant, kooky, multi-layered black-and-white Marc Jacobs dress and an itty bitty handbag that looks like it can only carry one lipstick (one of this year’s celebrity handbag trends).
Lady Gaga’s Pre-Met Gala Dinner 2019 outfit details
- Marc Jacobs F/W09 ruffled plissé dress
- Philip Treacy S/S19 stiffened organza fascinator
- Delvaux limited edition Haute Couture “Brillian Charms” micro bag
- Pleaser Shoes “Beyond-1020” faux leather boots
Of course, the itty bitty Delvaux bag is just for show, like a piece of jewelry. She was seen walking out of a restaurant with her Celine bag. Please enjoy the juxtaposition of her tiny baby Delvaux bag versus her Celine 16 bag.
Because I’m a nerd about how luxury goods are made, Delvaux posted this YouTube video about how the leather flowers are made that I’ve watched abut 20 times. It’s a beautiful, albeit useless bag, but I think the point here is that some people are so rich that they don’t need to carry anything in their handbag at all.
What do you think of Lady Gaga’s outfit? And Delvaux?
