In advance of tonight's (Nov. 16) stint as the host and musical guest of 'SNL,' Lady Gaga stepped out in NYC, looking deceptively normal.

Upon closer inspection, she's rocking diamond-cut specs and appears to be showing skin via nude panels in her Atelier Versace frock. It's an optical illusion of sorts.

The fact that she is wearing Versace has us thinking the rumors that she will be the new face of the brand are true.

Is this dress an accident waiting to happen? Not really; it just looks that way. We love her turban-style hat, too. And those red lips? WOWZA!

Sideview! Here, you can see the nude panels. She's not REALLY showing skin.

This is Gaga Normal, which is still edgy and fashion-forward. But it's much more subdued that recent attire.
