By

Three cities, 50 craftsmen, one
iconic performance.

Lady Gaga dazzled in her tribute to
the late David Bowie at the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Monday
night. But what most viewers don’t know was the amount of work that went into
her avant-garde looks from designer Marc Jacobs, both on the red
carpet and during the show.

It all started with research, sketches, patterns, and concept art, which was all
approved by Gaga. Next, the dresses went to Paris for additional
extravagant embellishments, including embroidery and feather work. Some of the
decorative metallic elements were provided by Maison Lesage. After final
touches in New York, the outfits were sent to Los Angeles for fittings with the
“Applause” singer.

In addition to overseas travel, the
works of art had to actually be handcrafted by a team of 50 people
with as many as 10 different hands on a garment at one time.

The
end result caused a stir at the annual awards show, with Gaga taking the carpet
in a royal blue coat dress with sky-high heels and orange-red hair. She later
changed into white pants and matching jacket, complete with a white shawl and blush-colored
feather boa.

Rock legend Bowie died after
a fight with cancer on Jan. 10, at the age of 69. Gaga paid tribute to
his impressive catalog of work during the live broadcast.

And that wasn’t the only
Bowie-related statement Gaga made. Prior to her GRAMMY performance, she got
Bowie’s iconic Aladdin Sane album cover tattooed on her left ribs.

“This was the image that changed my
life,” she captioned a Snapchat photo of her new ink.
