When Lady Gaga has a hip replacement, you’d better believe she’s going to roll out of the recovery room in a couture wheelchair. And naturally, Terry Richardson will be waiting there to photograph her in it.
Instead of hobbling around on crutches like most of us would after her recent hip replacement, the singer is recovering in a one-of-a-kind, 24-karat gold apparatus designed by Ken Borochov of luxury brand Mordekai. Her golden wheelchair is complete with a black tufted calf leather seat, a removable leather canopy, padded leg rests and gold-plated brakes.
“I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen,” Borochov said of his design.
I don’t dislike Lady Gaga the way some others of us do, but I’m not going to pretend like this doesn’t annoy me. [Daily Mail UK]
