The Rifle Barrel bra Edit
The piece consists of two Rifle Barrels attached to a simple black bra using long springs. Due to its weight, the bra is strapped to Gaga's chest with several straps instead of the usual two. A modified version of this bra with added ammunition cartridges was used for the Rolling Stones cover page, and to everyone's surprise, Menkes revealed that the new version can shoot bullets out of the rifles.
