Her covering was bold and made a statement according to her personality. However, Lady Gaga often wore face-covering even before the pandemic started.
Many celebrities are now embracing this protective equipment as a fashion accessory. Previously, Lana Del Rey wore a powder pink colored mesh face mask. Her picture was on the front cover of the September issue of Interview Magazine. It looked delicate and went beautifully with her outfit.
Previously, people criticized the fancy masks at the beginning of the pandemic. However, it seems now that these coverings have become a necessity. Also, the demand for more colorful and bold designer masks increased over the past couple of months.
At the Grammy’s event back in January, Billie Eilish supported a Gucci mask with gold and black detailing. These face masks have now become more popular since the coronavirus does not seem to vanish any time soon. Everyday, more celebrities appear wearing a fashion accessory in the form of a mask.
Many fashion brands are now catering to the high demand for fashionable face coverings. Most of the celebrities wear these fancy masks these days. Hence, this new trend is becoming popular quickly.

Experts have tested various face covering to test their ability for protection against the coronavirus. Most of the layered fabrics can provide adequate protection against the novel coronavirus. However, some bold and statement masks can not do the job completely.
The most commonly used covering is a surgical face mask. These masks also became short in supply at the beginning of the pandemic. Ever since many companies started bulk production of the face masks to fulfill the market demand.
