As the 2019 Met Gala co-host and reigning queen of camp, Lady Gaga had her own big, platform-clad footsteps to fill on Monday (May 6) in New York City for the ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’-themed gala.
Gaga has been doing the camp thing for years — cue the meat dress, the egg, the orbit design, and the list goes on and on — so, she has a whole repertoire of shock-and-awe looks to her name and an OTT reputation to maintain.
But, never fear, she managed to outdo herself yet again whilst shutting down the pink carpet with not one, not two, but four distinct outfit changes.
She peeled back the layers of each and every Brandon Maxwell creation, clearly moonlighting as a Russian nesting doll.
First up was a magnificent magenta confection — impossibly billowy and with a train that could have doubled as her personal parachute. I also love the girlish fun here with the gigantic bow in her hair.
Hiding below all that pink perfection was a black gown that was made whimsical with the pouf skirt and the black umbrella she carried.
Calling all Little Monsters… Gaga slimmed down even further to this hot-pink column gown, where she revived the ’80s brick mobile phone — and equally retro sunnies.
Leave it to Lady Gaga to throw all caution to the wind with her final showing, stripped bare to bra and undies with fishnets. It’s nothing we haven’t really seen before, but the whole point here was the performance aspect and the art of the quick-change.
In this last skin-baring look, her decorative eye makeup and signature, hoof-clad feet were the most heavily outfitted areas of her entire body.
