Lady Gaga Makes Hip Replacement Chic with 24 kt Gold Wheelchair by Mordekai

Money is no object!  Lady Gaga commissioned jewelry artists designer Ken Borochov of MORDEKAI to create a bejewelled ‘chariot’ to help her recover from hip surgery.

“I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call,” Ken Borochov told the New York Post.
“I 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.”

Borochov’s Chariot is reportedly
plated in 24-carat gold, with a removable leather canopy. Incorporating a
leg-rest and Wisconsin-made spoke rim wheels, the seat can also recline
all the way back to allow Gaga to enjoy a nap. 

it was Borochov’s first time designing a wheelchair, he has worked with
Gaga before. Under his Mordekai label, the jeweller designed an ornate
crown last year, as well as the golden claw
she wore for an appearance at Harrods. Cher Lloyd and Nicki Minaj have
also worn Borochov’s pieces, and Kanye West bought one of his crowns.

The singer already seems to be using the vehicle to get around: she let photographer Terry Richardson take a couple of snaps, posing in what looks like a couture bathrobe. (It’s actually a custom gown with a Mathieu Mirano jacket.)
