From “kindness armor” to COVID armor.
On Wednesday, Lady Gaga stayed safe and stylish while hand-delivering copies of her new album “Chromatica” to retailers, outfitted in a one-of-a-kind pink spiked face mask by Michael Ngo.
The 34-year-old “Sour Candy” singer’s custom facial covering features the title and logo of her upcoming LP, and is adorned with dozens of silver studs that reflect her new era’s punk-pop sound.
And while Gaga’s version isn’t available for purchase, fans of the look can scoop up a near-identical spiked fuchsia mask ($150) from the designer’s website, with 100 percent of net proceeds benefiting the Los Angeles Food Bank.
“My heart is dancing around the galaxy!,” Ngo wrote on Instagram upon seeing Gaga in his creation. This marks his first custom work for the pop star, whom he told Page Six Style actually had a hand in jump-starting his own career.
“I would recreate her outfits and go to her concerts. And that’s what kind of like gathered me attention from other fans and, you know, some supporters,” he said.
“I got her attention, too. And one time during one of her concerts, she actually pointed me out in the middle of the audience and said, ‘Your outfit is amazing. You’re f—king talented.’”
It seems the “stupid love” is mutual.
“Chromatica” is out at midnight Friday.
