at MOCA's 30th anniversary party last weekend, video artist francesco vezzoli constructed a five-minute production number called "ballets russes italian style (the shortest musical you will never see again)."

cravings ensued...

lady gaga played a nipple-pink, butterfly tattooed, steinway grand piano painted by damien hirst (which was later auctioned off for $450,000)....


and wore a glorious hat designed by architect frank gehry.  film director baz luhrmann and his wife, catherine martin, created the masks.  but, the whoranging didn't end there...

Lady Gaga at MOCA with Bolshoi dancers

the bolshoi ballet performed in custom costumes crafted by prada.

in other words...just another typical night at the museum.
