One glance at these completely outrageous platform heels, and it's clear Lady Gaga was the inspiration. Shoe company United Nude designed these tailor-made pair of shoes as an ode to Gaga's "Fame" perfume ad campaign where miniature naked men scale her body.
With a staggering 12-inch heel and tiny gold men attached all over, these shoes are a pretty literal translation of Gaga's perfume commercial. Not that we'd expect anything less over-the-top for a Gaga-inspired product. A plain black pair of stilettos just wouldn't be a fitting tribute to Gaga.
