Behold: Lady Gaga's Most Gaga Looks Ever

Unlike most celebrities who slowly transform their style into something more daring, Lady Gaga stepped onto the scene ready to turn heads. She showed up on red carpets wearing bodysuits and with her hair tied in a bow — and little did we know, that would only be the beginning of the singer's bold, out-there looks.

Over the years, Gaga has treated her style as an extension of her art, never being afraid to push the envelope or make us wonder what, exactly, inspired a certain ensemble (some outfits are harder to figure out than others). We still talk about her iconic meat dress and the time she wore stuffed Kermit the Frogs from head to toe — and, to be honest, we'll probably never stop. The best part? We've also seen Lady Gaga pull a 180, wearing more elegant and classic ensembles while promoting her acting projects. It's entirely possible for her to pull off both.

The Meat Dress

Lady Gaga credited her jaw-droppingly raw VMA ensemble with a deeper political meaning. "If we don't stand up for what we believe in and if we don't fight for our rights pretty soon, we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones," the singer said on Ellen. "And I am not a piece of meat."

The beautifully constructed garment was less weighty than the message. "She said it was her most comfortable dress of the night," Franc Fernandez, its creator, told "I'm guessing it weighed around forty pounds. It's built on a corset, so the weight is distributed on her chest."
