Lady Gaga is known for her outlandish fashion sense, but her travelling getup is a hazard – literally. According The Sun, Gaga’s dress made out of black and yellow tape, was so tight that it brought on early stages of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) – a potentially deadly blood clot in a deep vein.
While on a flight from London to New York, the experienced flight crew told the star that if she did not remove the outfit fast, she would risk long-term damage. A DVT can occur without symptoms, but may be painful, swollen, red, and warm and the superficial veins may become engorged.
An airline source said: “GaGa was a high-risk DVT case so she was advised to change out of her clothes. But the outfit was so cumbersome she needed help changing out of it. She was particularly miffed about ditching her heels. She was wearing them in memory of her friend Alexander [McQueen].”
