19 Times Lady Gaga Took Fashion to New and Outrageous Heights

Christmas ornaments, carpet remnants and a plethora of platforms. No, this isn’t a shortlist for a garage sale in some suburban neighborhood — these are just a few of the crazy items Lady Gaga has been spotted in over the past several years. From the now-iconic meat dress to an array of Alexander McQueen productions, Gaga always brings the drama. In fact, we’re often more surprised when we see her dressed in relatively subdued looks, by her criterion at least. After all, you can’t belt out standards with Tony Bennett encased in an egg.

In honor of Gaga’s 29th birthday, we’re reminiscing about some of her most memorable looks. While this compilation was a hard one to narrow down, we think the above examples truly represent the singer’s over-the-top persona. Get ready to go Gaga.
