Lady Gaga, singer, actress, and superstar, has spent the past few days in New York City, and her looks have not disappointed—as if they ever would. Yesterday, she left The Mark Hotel in an ensemble perfect for the sweltering summer months: a leather crop top, ruffled midi skirt, her staple platform boots, and leather evening gloves, paired with a leather doctor's bag.

Later that evening, Gaga performed at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, returning to her hotel in a Green Day graphic tee, and not much else. It appears Lady Gaga, rightly so, has transcended street style stardom to the point where not even pants are required. In fact, only a t-shirt is required—because when Lady Gaga says a t-shirt is a dress, a t-shirt is a dress.

Did you ever think a band t-shirt was just a t-shirt? Think again. The A Star is Born actress returned home in the full look, pairing her concert tee with a pair of knee-high patent leather boots, and an extra-long high ponytail, as one does.

This is Lady Gaga's first day out since People reported that her Star is Born director and co-star, Bradley Cooper, and his longtime fiancé, Irina Shayk, had ended their relationship. While romance rumors swirled after the co-stars performed their Academy Award winning single Shallow together at The OscarsUs Weekly and Elle reported last week that according to tabloid reports, Gaga and Cooper will not get together in the wake of Cooper and Shayk's supposed split, despite hopes from fans looking to see their on-screen relationship transition into a real-life romance.

While news of Gaga's love life has been dim since her split with ex-fiancé Christian Carino, the superstar is keeping us entertained with moments of epic fashion—like her theatrical 4-part look on the CAMP themed Met Gala red carpet—performances in Las Vegas, New York City, and beyond, and as always, killer street style.
