A Lady Gaga wardrobe malfunction can be hard to spot, since the lady is known for her barely there outfits like the bikini she wore in the Bahamas on a recent vacation. She’s okay with exposed flesh, but Gaga’s nip slip wasn’t part of the plan when she stepped out Tuesday evening for a night on the town in New York City. The singer started the evening dressed, “as ya do,” in a lacy white bra, open tan jacket, and high-waisted jean shorts.
Gaga and “Cheek to Cheek” partner Tony Bennett hit Radio City Music Hall for a few tunes, then headed to SixtyFive for a more intimate concert with a few lucky fans.

The jacket came off a few times over the course of the evening, showing off the “Applause” singer’s toned tummy, but the bra stayed on. After the SixtyFive show, Gaga posed with waiting fans outside the venue, “still rocking her lacy lingerie look.”

The real trouble started after Lady Gaga was back in the town car for a ride to the pizza place. First, Gaga pulled a Gossip Girl scene (she was once an extra on the hit show) by popping up through the car’s sunroof to give her fans a “special view.” Back in the car, it could have been the heavy New York humidity, or just an especially uncomfortable bra that inspired her. Either way, by the time Gaga emerged from the car, the jacket was on, still hanging partially open so it was easy to get a glimpse inside and see that the bra was off.
Going into the pizza place didn’t present a problem, but coming back out, carrying the pizza box while trying to shield her eyes from camera flashes, meant the “Born That Way” singer did some flashing of her own. The jacket fell wide open, and there was Lady Gaga’s nip slip for all to see.

Monster Mother didn’t appear to be phased by the wardrobe malfunction. Twitter user Ian McGinsey said it wasn’t really a nip slip, since Gaga doesn’t like wearing clothes!
i wouldn’t call seeing @ladygaga‘s nipple in the paparazzi a nip slip…i mean the woman truly doesn’t like wearing clothes sometimes

The lady might have learned something from the mid-evening wardrobe change. The next day, Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, were out together. This time, Gaga wore a black, shoulder-padded pantsuit, with a jacket snugly buttoned at the waist. The upper part of the jacket was open to show off her tanned torso, and also the complete lack of lingerie. After all, why bother wearing a bra if you know you’re going to take it off?
