From Gaga's Golden Wheelchair to Demi's Bedazzled Boot: How Stars Nurse Injuries — Stylishly

Updated

If you thought Lady Gaga would be recovering from her hip surgery like any other citizen — well, you obviously haven’t been paying enough attention.

After laying low for a few weeks to recover, the perpetually surprising singer rolled out her latest accessory — literally. She wheeled out of her N.Y.C. hotel (see the pic here) in a 24-karat gold-plated wheelchair created for her by jewelry designer Ken Borochov from Mordekai, whom she’d previously tapped to create a gold claw for her fragrance launch.

The chair features a tufted leather seat and a removable canopy, which is why Borochov said in a statement, “I was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen.”

Though Gaga considers herself a trailblazer, she’s not the first star this year to make a style statement out of her injury.

At the 2013 Oscars in February, Kristen Stewart added a pair of crutches to her Reem Acra gown, then completed the avant-garde look by wearing one Bloch flat on her injured foot and a Jimmy Choo heel on the other.

And Demi Lovato refused to let her cast keep her from looking cute last month, bedazzling it with funky studs to really dress the look up for London Fashion Week.

Tell us: What do you think of Gaga’s latest look?
