She's never one to step out in a comfortable tracksuit and trainers, so it was no surprise to see Lady Gaga on typically flamboyant form as she arrived in Moscow.
Despite the freezing temperatures of -8 degrees Celsius, the singer opted for a bizarre ensemble of Gothic bride-meets-military.
The tiered floor-length open-fronted dress revealed the star's bra and her sky-high platform heels as she teetered through the city's Vnukovo airport.
Wearing a fur hat and carrying a matching stole, the singer signed autographs and posed for photos with her 'little monsters' - her affectionate nickname to describe her fans.
The 26-year-old's arrival in the Russian capital came as she revealed she would be supporting the Rolling Stones for their final New Jersey gig.
Gaga, Bruce Springsteen and The Black Keys will be opening for the veteran rockers' final 50th anniversary comeback tour date at the Prudential Center on Saturday.
She tweeted on Monday night: 'I am so honoured and excited to announce I will be performing with @rollingstones on Dec15 for their 50th Anniversary Concert One More Shot.
'He had me at, "Hello, it's Mick."'
Gaga arrived in Russia on Friday when she flew into St Petersberg ahead of her latest gig on the Born This Way Ball world tour on Sunday night.
Following her arrival, she thanked Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev for defending gay rights.
St. Petersburg is one of the three Russian cities that have recently passed bills imposing fines of up to $150,000 for providing minors with information on homosexuality, which the laws term 'homosexual propaganda'.
She tweeted over the weekend: 'Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party's anti gay propaganda law & instead supporting my show + fans all over Russia.
'Prime Minister Medvedev please accept my gratitude I am looking forward to performing in RUSSIA & celebrating our cultures coming together.'
