Black and white beauty: Lady Gaga struts across the runway at Sydney Airport in a monochrome creation after landing in Australia
It's not like Lady Gaga to make a subtle and quiet entrance.
And this morning was no exception for the star as she touched down in Sydney, Australia in a black and white creation that only she could pull off with daring aplomb.
The Born This Way star was a surreal vision in a long figure-hugging white dress with puffed sleeves.

She teamed the stunning frock with her trademark towering platform heels, white rimmed sunglasses and elbow-length black gloves.
She had also done her hair to match her outfit in black and white buns on top of her head as she waved at fans as she strutted across the tarmac.
And as soon as she arrived, she took to her Twitter page and wrote: 'Just landed in Australia! I'm so happy to be back. Can't wait to perform my new album at Monsterhall! I missed this beautiful place so much.'

And ever the pop superstar, Gaga was whisked through the airport and straight to a black limo that took her to the city's Four Seasons Hotel.
Gaga is in Australia to promote her new album Born This Way and to perform a one-off, private concert at Sydney Town Hall for 1,000 lucky guests this coming Wednesday.
Fans had to enter a special draw through Facebook to win tickets for the show, which is reported to be costing £700,000 to stage, and post a picture showing how much they love Gaga.

The singer has hired Sydney decorator Alex Zabotto-Bentley to create a series of rooms for the VIP area and green rooms, but when asked about what they would look like, he told the press he has been sworn to secrecy.
The singer, real name Stefani Germanotta, will also be taking in some sightseeing while she is Down Under.
But she will also use her time there to promote the album and reports in Australia have suggested that A Current Affair's Tracy Grimshaw has managed to land the first interview with the singer to be broadcast live on Monday night.
