Trust Lady Gaga to make a grand entrance. The Oscar-winning-actress/singer changed her costume, not once, but four times. Gaga is one of the co-chairs of the annual fashion event, with this year's theme being "Camp: Notes on Fashion". According to Variety, her outfits were designed by Brandon Maxwell. USA Today notes her first outfit was a sea of fuschia pink with a GIGANTIC train that had a number of men holding it up for her. Everything about the costume was extra as she completed her look with a giant pink bow and huge golden eyelashes.
As grand as it was, it was time for a little strip tease, as she took off the pink layer, only to reveal a strapless, asymmetrical black gown with one dramatically molded hip. To go with her new outfit was a black umbrella that she showed off during her walk up the stairs.
As she was walking up the iconic stairs, she lost the black dress, only to reveal a hot pink column dress. She completed that look with an oversized Linda Farrow sunglasses and a retro block cell phone, and she seemed to be making a call on it!
So, that makes it three. There was one more outfit change, and that left everyone amazed! She took off the pink dress to reveal a pair of sparkling bra and undies, complete with sparkly stocking and boots. She even pulled a hot pink wagon full of rosé and pink cowboy hats, according to Harper's Bazaar. She had more accessories to go with her last look. She was spotted a 28-carat Tiffany diamond choker!
Also, when Gaga was done with her fashion ramp walk (of sorts), she and Maxwell exchanged hi-fives on their way inside the Gala. This year’s Met Gala’s theme “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” pays homage to Susan Sontag’s essay of the same name. Gaga was on point with her outfits, as Sontag defines camp as “a sensibility that revels in artifice, stylization, theatricalization, irony, playfulness, and exaggeration rather than content.”
As always, people had mixed reactions to Lady Gaga's outfit of choice. Agy Mugo wrote: I love Lady Gaga weird self. High self-esteem n she doesn’t care what anyone else thinks of her. Unique style in nature. She never disappoints! Go, Gal! Phillip Calaway wrote: Honestly, it must be exhausting, time-consuming, inconvenient, and uncomfortable trying to come up with zany new ways to put on the showmanship that everyone expects from her and bring some weirdness and fun to something as dull as the Met Gala. You have to give her credit for dedication to the bit.
Meanwhile, Jeanne Bollman Maler said: Amazingly talented, articulate, intelligent young woman with depth and understanding of life's struggles. She had no need to reduce herself with these "maneuvers". Leanne Freeland wrote: She's incredibly talented, and I love that she is fearless in her self expression: however, I would have stopped with that gorgeous pink dress and skipped getting down to her skivvies. It was unnecessary in my opinion.
