The Met Gala is now the Met Gaga!
All eyes were on Lady Gaga as she descended upon the star-studded sartorial fixture in New York City on Monday night (May 6), and she turned her grand entrance into quite the show. Flanked by tuxedo-wearing, umbrella-wielding male dancers, Gaga arrived sporting doll-like makeup (those lashes!) and wearing a billowing hot pink dress with a matching headpiece.
But that was just the beginning. The A Star Is Born leading lady took a Russian nesting dolls-style approach to her Met Gala slayage, playfully stripping down to reveal another new look under each layer, and taking this year’s theme, “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” to heart. After the pink parachute dress, there was a corseted black gown, then a fitted pink one that she accessorized with sunglasses, a choker, and a brick phone.
For her final head-turning look, Gaga stripped down to a crystallized bra and matching high-waisted panties, which she modeled while posing on the iconic Met steps. See the master in action:
As one of the co-chairs of this year’s Met Ball — along with Harry Styles, Serena Williams, and Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele — it’s safe to say we had high expectations for the pop icon to make an audacious statement. Ever the overachiever, she made several.
