The US star also rocked an unusual look of silver metallic braids for her cultural trip to the gallery.

Lady Gaga wore a striking outfit of metallic braids and a chequered monochrome catsuit for her visit to the Louvre in Paris this week, and enjoyed a "special moment" to visit a portrait of herself done by famous artist Bob Wilson.

The 'Applause' singer says the visit was a day she will "never forget" after getting to see the portrait in person for the first time, and promised to reveal a video of her adventures in Paris over the past week very soon.

"I went to the Louvre today and saw the portraits Bob Wilson made of me," Lady Gaga posted on "It was such a special moment. I wore archive Gianni and wore my hair in metallic braids. It was a day I'll never forget.

Artist Bob Wilson seemed similarly happy with the visit when he also posted on Twitter to thank the 'Aura' star for her time.
