Looks like someone is giving Anna Wintour a run for her money! Pop star, style icon, and Mugler muse Lady Gaga attended a Silicon Valley fundraiser for President Barack Obama over the weekend — as a paying guest, not a performer.
The event was held in the backyard of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg‘s home. And while we don’t know what the Mother Monster paid, ticket prices ran up to $38,500 a couple. Gaga reportedly wanted to speak to Obama about her anti-bullying initiative, though reports say the president did not acknowledge her during his 8-minute speech, for which she sat at a center table.
The White House traveling press corps pool described her outfit as such:
“She was wearing a floor-length sleeveless lacey black dress,” the pool report relays, “her blonde hair was gathered in a bouffant up-do adorned with a black hair piece with a black veil down the back, which she swept to the side and in front of her left shoulder. (The hair added about 6 inches to her stature).”
Sadly, there were no photos.
