Why Are Kim Kardashian and Lady Gaga Bundling Up in the Heat?

It’s really hot and humid in New York City — like the “sweat-the-second-you-get-outside” kind of heat. Gross.

So we were kind of confused when we spotted Lady Gaga rocking a bright-pink fur-like cape paired with black tights and major Brian Atwood heels while leaving Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan on Tuesday — and not because it’s eccentric, but because we don’t know how she’s wearing it all in this heat!

Apparently, Kim Kardashian is also weather-proof because on Tuesday night she Tweeted a photo of herself wearing head-to-toe winter gear, with the caption: “Fresh airport look…Celine leather sweat pants, Helmut Lang t shirt, Kanye West for Giuseppe Zanotti heels.”

Now we know Los Angeles has pretty perfect weather, but it’s not that cool over there in August. The long-sleeve top isn’t all that unusual, but the leather sweatpants — isn’t that an oxymoron?

Gaga and the reality queen aren’t the only stars donning cold weather trends in the summer. We’ve seen tons of starlets rocking bits of leather — like shorts or tops – on the red carpet in scorching temps, and we love it. But we have to ask the ones who bundle up in the heat: aren’t you ladies hot? Literally, not you know, figuratively. Tell us: What do you think of stars bundling up in the heat for the sake of fashion?

I was wondering this as well!! Kim is not only dressing totally out of season, she’s tacky!! At least Gaga went for it!! If you’re not going to dress in season at least make a statement like Gaga!
