 The Wire Mesh Fence Glasses were custom-made for Lady Gaga and were first seen in the music video for "LoveGame". Gaga told Entertainment Weekly more about the glasses during a behind the scenes interview.
I love the imagery of a downtown, bad-ass kid walking down the street with his buddies, grabbing a pair of pliers, and making a pair of sunglasses out of a fence on the street, [...] I thought that imagery was so real, and it shows that no matter who you are, or where you come from, or how much money you have in your pocket, you’re nothing without your ideas. Your ideas are all you have. The opening of the video is me with this chain link hood and these intense glasses. They look so hard. It looks like I plied them right out of the fence and put them on my face.
 The "JUDA'z" sunglasses were custom-made for Lady Gaga. She wore them at Disney World and a bar in Tampa.
