She’s no stranger to hitting the headlines with her usually outrageous and revealing outfits. But even when Lady Gaga covers up, she still courts controversy.

The Bad Romance singer trod on dangerous ground, by wearing a burka-style outfit to Philip Treacy’s London Fashion Week show on Sunday night.

The 26-year-old singer covered everything but her eyes in the outfit, which saw Gaga wear a pale pink jeweled headdress, brown silk scarf around her mouth and a large coat-like ensemble adorned with fur tails.

Towering white lace up platform boots completed the eccentric look as Gaga left the Royal Courts of Justice in London some time after attending milliner Phillip Treacy’s London Fashion Show. But Gaga’s outfit is likely to cause controversy in more than just one way.

In addition to drawing comparisons to a burka – the full body veil often worn by Muslim women – Gaga was also recently slammed by animal rights charity PETA for wearing fur, who are unlikely to be happy with her most recent ensemble.

‘I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially as I have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat. I have no chains about this. ‘

-Lady Gaga
