It’s really hot and humid in New York City — like the “sweat-the-second-you-get-outside” kind of heat. Gross.

So we were kind of confused when we spotted Lady Gaga rocking a bright-pink fur-like cape paired with black tights and major Brian Atwood heels while leaving Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan on Tuesday — and not because it’s eccentric, but because we don’t know how she’s wearing it all in this heat!

Apparently, Kim Kardashian is also weather-proof because on Tuesday night she Tweeted a photo of herself wearing head-to-toe winter gear, with the caption: “Fresh airport look…Celine leather sweat pants, Helmut Lang t shirt, Kanye West for Giuseppe Zanotti heels.”

Now we know Los Angeles has pretty perfect weather, but it’s not that cool over there in August. The long-sleeve top isn’t all that unusual, but the leather sweatpants — isn’t that an oxymoron?

Gaga and the reality queen aren’t the only stars donning cold weather trends in the summer. We’ve seen tons of starlets rocking bits of leather — like shorts or tops – on the red carpet in scorching temps, and we love it. But we have to ask the ones who bundle up in the heat: aren’t you ladies hot? Literally, not you know, figuratively. Tell us: What do you think of stars bundling up in the heat for the sake of fashion?
