Going gaga for Céline?
Lady Gaga, 32, debuted the first handbag designed by new Céline creative director Hedi Slimane during a double date with her fiancé Christian Carino, “A Star Is Born” director Bradley Cooper, and Cooper’s girlfriend Irina Shayk on Wednesday night in Paris.
The singer was also spotted touring the Louvre with the minimalist top-handled black bag, pairing her exclusive purse with a floor-length, black leather dress with a cowl neck and full skirt.
Gaga’s longtime stylist Tom Eerebout confirmed to Business of Fashion that Slimane “gifted her the bag and it’s the first one from his new collection.”
“Lady Gaga always supported Hedi at Saint Laurent,” Erebout said. “They’re really close friends and they have been since he photographed her for ‘The Fame Monster’ album cover,” which was released in 2009.
In 2012, the pop star was also the first celebrity to wear a full look from Slimane’s first collection for Saint Laurent, just one week after it came down the runway. Gaga was also the first celebrity to wear a dress from his final couture collection for the brand.
It pays to have friends in chic places.
