It’s not everyday a girl has a section all of her own in Barneys New York, so to celebrate the opening of Gaga’s Workshop in Manhattan last night, Lady Gaga went all out, wearing a princess-like, one-of-a-kind Karl Lagerfeld creation.

The white tweed dress with black trim was made especially for the occasion, and featured Chanel pearls, camelias and bows.

While the dress was breathtaking, it’s Gaga’s Workshop that’s really something to see. The boutique, inside the Madison Avenue Barneys department store, is filled with whimsical gifts from candy (like a 2-lb. solid chocolate armadillo shoe) and hair bows made from hair to custom jewelry and leather jackets. There are snow globes, holiday ornaments, teacups, fake nails, plush Little Monsters, cookies, totes, T-shirts and everything in between at a variety of price points.

According to a Barneys spokeswoman, Gaga approved every item before the boutique’s opening, and her friend and stylist Nicola Formichetti was “instrumental” in the conception of the space. (Lady Gaga songs and holiday music even play as you shop!) As part of the agreement, 25 percent of all sales will benefit Gaga’s charitable organization, the Born This Way Foundation.
