Lady Gaga gets 24-karat gold wheelchair post hip surgery
A 24-Karat gold plated wheelchair with a black leather seat complete with a removable leather canopy has been created for Lady Gaga to help her recover post-hip surgery.
Gaga has commissioned Ken Borochov of the luxury brand Mordekai to create the one-of-a-kind wheelchair, the New York Post reported.
The chair can also recline all the way back if Gaga needs to lie down.
Borochov, who's designed pieces for Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Cher Lloyd, said about Gaga's wheels, "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."
The celebrity stylist had only one week to complete the project.
Equal parts luxury and rock and roll, Borochov was inspired by a queen's throne for Gaga's chair and the leather portions were inspired by a motorcycle jacket.
Gaga underwent surgery last month to repair her injured hip that's forced her to cancel the remainder of her world tour.
