Lady Gaga was supposed to be the star of The National Board of Review's Annual Awards, but it's her oversized feathered accessory that's got people squawking.
The star won Best Actress for her role in "A Star is Born" and accepted the honor Tuesday night in New York at Cipriani. Wearing a black, Ralph Lauren sleek gown, Gaga looked breathtaking, except for that obnoxious black and gold addition she kept in tow all night long.
Its purpose (other than to make a statement) is unclear. People have been questioning all morning long -- is it a cape? A purse? A boa?
We're told it's a jacket that she loved, but decided not to wear. Regardless, it met some high-profile stars while flashing her fancy accessory.
Maybe her new feathered friend will bring good luck through the rest of awards season.
