Lady Gaga went all out to shock at the Phillip Treacy show at London Fashion Week when she arrived at the event dressed in a burqa covered in raccoon tails. She later swapped the outfit for a floral headress. Check out the photos.

The once anti-fur star has once again shocked with her fondness for animal skins, having previously been seen wearing fur while on tour in Bulgaria. During her visit to London Fashion Week over the weekend, Lady Gaga was spotted wearing a cream-coloured burqa with raccoon tails, a pink sheet and a floral headdress.

When she was previously spotted wearing fur, Animal rights group PETA compared her a 'mindless Kim Kardashian' before Gaga later attempted to defend her choice to dress in animal skin.

"You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance," she wrote in an official statement on her choice to wear fur.

She added: "But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, its a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals. I respect your views, please respect mine."

Gaga published the open letter online to confirm her new stance on the issue, which seems to go back on her 2009 comment to Ellen DeGeneres on US TV that: "I hate fur and I don't wear fur."

She drew criticism from fellow US star Ke$ha, who hit out at Gaga's love for fur.

"As a fellow artist, I would like to express my distaste, and quite bluntly, disgust, at the fact that you, someone who is in the spotlight at a near constant basis, would endorse and display this type of clothing," the letter from Ke$ha reads.

"I am genuinely shocked and upset that you would so openly disregard this injustice, due to the fact that you are a strong advocate for many causes," it continues. The letter then extends an invitation for Lady Gaga to contact Ke$ha to discuss the matter further.
