Twelve years after she emerged from a swimming pool in latex for the ”Poker Face” music video, Lady Gaga is back to her old ways. On Wednesday, the “Rain On Me” singer posted a video of herself on Instagram mimicking the music video move. This time, she wore a star-shaped string bikini and a gold belly chain — two of this summer’s top trends. And while the current version was more Hot Girl Summer than American Horror Story, that didn’t hinder it from making a splash in the hearts of her many Little Monsters.
For the backyard production, Gaga chose a neon orange two-piece, which featured criss-crossed, floss-like ties, from the Armenian-Mexican mother-daughter design duo Lali and Layla. While her orange version is currently unavailable, the same style, called the Stella, is still in stock for $69 in red, fuschia, pistachio green, cyan blue, black, and white. In addition to her thick belly chain, she accessorized with a gold chain necklace and a pair of her signature statement shades from RetroSuperFuture.
The belly-chain-bikini look is a popular one these days, with Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid, Hailey Bieber, and more celebrities having all hopped aboard the Y2K-era body baubles this summer. Beyoncé has, too, worn a belly chain in recent months, though the “Lemonade” singer styled it with ready-to-wear, as opposed to beachwear. Both body chains and flossy bikinis — a favorite of EmRata’s — were also prevalent during Miami Swim Week, where hundreds of brands convened to present the top trends in swim- and beach-wear for the season ahead. Even Chanel approves of wearing chain-like body belts.
