US singer Lady Gaga is well-known for her often outlandish costume but her latest outfit has shocked the fashion world.

Gaga, who recently posed in her underwear to highlight body acceptance issues, has stepped out in the Versace safety-pin dress made famous by British bikini designer Liz Hurley in the 1990s.

Hurley ensured she was on the fast-track to fame when she wore the revealing dress to the premiere of Four Weddings And A Funeral in 1994, which starred her then-boyfriend Hugh Grant.

It was more a case of 'Hugh who?' when she appeared on the red carpet, baring nearly all thanks to the dress's strategically placed gold safety pins. Hurley ended up with her own, admittedly poorly reviewed, film career and the dress got its own Wikipedia page.

Gaga, who is better known for wearing outsized platform shoes, bizarre hats and, on one occasion, a dress made of meat, appeared to be channelling Hurley's style when she wore the dress in Milan this week, though she paired the dress with her ubiquitous platform ankleboots.

We can only speculate what she will haul out of the Versace archives next. Can you imagine her in the Versace dress Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammys in 2000?

Or would she look better in Bjork's swan dress?
