From ga-ga-gaudy to ga-ga-gracious: Lady Gaga wraps up demurely from the cold hours before wowing London fans in see-through rubber dress

Covered up: Lady Gaga looked unusually demure as she wrapped up in a head-to-toe dress as she left her London hotel yesterday

Her on-stage costumes and her out-and-about clothes are nothing more than outrageous and revealing and leave very little to the imagination.

So it came as a surprise to see Lady Gaga covered up from head-to-toe as she left her London hotel last night.

The singer was snapped in a long silk dress that completely engulfed her from her chin to her feet as she made her way to the city's O2 Arena.

With a black leather jacket over it and black gloves, she was wrapped up well against the sub-zero temperatures that hit the capital last night.

She accessorised the dress with a gold chain belt that flattered her tiny frame and pulled in her waist and wore big black sunglasses, despite the dark evening.

But before fans started to think the Alejandro star was going in a new fashion direction, one look at the floor was enough to convince them otherwise.

The 24-year-old wore her trademark towering platform boots under the dress, which she hitched up to walk down to her car.

So no need to call Madama Tussauds and get her eight waxworks, which were unveiled around the world last week, changed just yet.

She was en route to play her last UK date of her 18-month-long, 201-date tour worldwide Monster Ball tour.

And once inside the Docklands venue, the long wrap dress was quickly shed in favour of her on-stage attire, including her rubber nun's dress and blue, animal skin print corset.

It is the third time that Gaga has played London as part of the tour, which started in Canada in November 2009 and finishes in Mexico next May.

She first played the O2 Arena in February for two dates before returning in May for two more dates, as well as concerts in Manchester, Birmingham and Sheffield.
