Lady Gaga channels RoboCop and Predator as she kicks off her Chromatica Ball tour in Germany

Lady Gaga returned to the stage on Sunday night as she kicked off her Chromatica Ball tour on a high note with a concert in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The 36-year-old singer and actress showed off her affinity for extreme fashion with several eye-catching ensembles of black PVC and metallic material, with some of her stand-out costumes resembling the title characters from 1987 movies RoboCop and Predator.

The Star Is Born actress showed off several science-fiction and cyberpunk–inspired costumes throughout the performance, including a black PVC bodysuit with a mask with long tentacles, channeling Predator.

The stage costume was One of Gaga’s oddest outfits, with the boomerang-shaped hat covered in black spots that reached down to cover her eyes with translucent fabric. It featured long, insect-like stalks that dangled down to her waist.

Elsewhere, Gaga struck a power pose in a grey outfit with a metallic visor which featured a black strip across the eyes, looking similar to the make-up of RoboCop in the 1987 film.

Meanwhile, Gaga (born Stefani Germanotta) paired a revealing body suit with cut-out detail with a baggy set of flared black pants, which appeared to have leather patches augmenting the fabric.
