Only Lady Gaga Could Dress Like This For SoulCycle

When you get dressed for SoulCycle, you probably pick out a cute sports bra, a t-shirt, and some leggings — not intricate faux face tattoos and bedazzled footwear. But for Lady Gaga, dressing runway ready is the only way to go, even if she's breaking a sweat. Donning crystal-studded riding shoes and bedazzled calavera facial decorations, the performer hosted a benefit ride for her organization, the Born This Way Foundation. The fundraising fitness event raised more than $50,000 for the foundation, which offers resources for mental health and well-being to young people.

Among the riders were actress Sophia Bush, Gaga's mom (Born This Way Foundation cofounder Cynthia Germanotta), and Bobby Campbell (the pop star's manager). Participants in the benefit ride enjoyed an upbeat workout to dance tunes, including a few by Gaga herself, at the new SoulCycle Chicago location . . . And thanks to some friendly competition between Gaga, Campbell, and Germanotta, extra money was raised in the form of charitable wagers. Read on for photos from the fun event!

"We rode for a world where every kids voice matters, and every kids pain is met with compassion," said Lady Gaga of the benefit ride.

"I'm thankful for these two ladies and the example they set through their fierce dedication to the Born This Way Foundation," said Sophia Bush in a postride Instagram post. "We rode like mad, laughed a lot, cried a little, and even jumped off the bikes to have a mid-class a dance party. What an epic night. Doing good for the world is the most fun and rewarding thing you can do with your time, and tonight we proved it."

What a fierce look! While we'd probably sweat off those intricate facial adornments, we love how Lady Gaga rocked them for the ride.
