Gaga's style: A match made in Gotham
Lady Gaga's personal style evolution seemed almost serendipitous for her casting as Harley Quinn. Over the years, Gaga's penchant for leather, bold colors, and avant-garde fashion made her a natural fit for the role. "Over the years, the superstar has channeled Quinn’s love for all-leather ensembles, which often include mini shorts and moto jackets." Her occasional quirky hairdos, reminiscent of Harley's signature dip-dyed pigtails, further solidified the connection in fans' minds.

Harley Quinn's fashion journey in the DC universe has been nothing short of transformative. From her initial jester-inspired outfits to the more risqué ensembles of recent years, Harley's style evolution mirrors her character development. "In the original DC Comic, she sported a two-tone, red and black leather jumpsuit with a jester hat; Over the years, however, her outfits have evolved to be more risqué." Gaga's own fearless fashion choices made her the perfect muse for the character's next chapter.
With the "Joker: Folie À Deux" costume designer on board, fans were on the edge of their seats, anticipating a fresh take on Harley's iconic looks. Gaga's personal wardrobe, filled with bold and daring choices, could easily serve as inspiration. The essence of Harley's outfits? A blend of edgy, sexy, and unpredictable - much like the character herself.
