With the release of “House of Gucci” just days away, Lady Gaga has been lighting up red carpet after red carpet. Gaga’s red carpet presence has been a great reminder that the “Poker Face” singer (who stars in “House of Gucci” as Patrizia Reggiani) has made a habit of creating unforgettable red carpet looks over the years.
TheWrap has rounded up many of Lady Gaga’s iconic moments that both made red carpet history and also solidified her as a fashion icon. Her outfits and costumes run the gamut, from stunning to shocking. Peruse our gallery of Lady Gaga’s red carpet looks below.
In 2010, Lady Gaga wore a lavender purple dress designed by Armani Privé to The Grammys. This is one of her earliest and most iconic looks, complete with nearly neon yellow hair dye. She won her first Grammy right before wearing this outfit.
Lady Gaga’s meat dress — ultimately House of Gaga’s brainchild, designed by Franc Fernandez, and sewn together by Gaga’s then-stylist Brandon Maxwell — remains one of her most famous looks. This outfit pretty much speaks for itself, but it became all the more meaningful when Gaga won the MTV VMA for Video of the Year for her song “Bad Romance” and accepted the award in the outfit.
Let’s not forget that Gaga took drag to a new level when she performed and presented at the 2011 VMAs as her alter ego Jo Calderone. Calderone — whose image was developed by Gaga and photographer Nick Knight — smoked a cigarette and announced Britney Spears as the winner of a moonman, complete with sideburns and all.
In 2015, Lady Gaga added another layer of fame to her name with her “Sound of Music” medley tribute at the Oscars. Her outfit was custom-made by Paris-based designer Azzedine Alaia.
In 2017, during her intense Super Bowl LI performance in Houston, Texas, Gaga flew in on some cable wires in typical chunky, metallic Atelier Versace.
When Lady Gaga won the 2019 Oscar for Best Original Song for “Shallow” from “A Star is Born,” her reaction was priceless, and rightfully so because it was her first Oscar. So was her outfit — a classy black gown by Brandon Maxwell and unique jewel necklace, which was actually the same necklace worn by Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
How could we leave out the 2019 Brandon Maxwell-designed Met Galla Outfit? The first poofy pink dress alone cements Gaga as a fashion icon, but then she had to go and strip not just once but twice, to reveal more layers. A celebration of camp indeed.
One of Gaga’s most recent fashion moments — designed by Daniel Roseberry — took place when she sang the national anthem at President Joe Biden’s Inauguration Ceremony in January 2021. Complete with another poofy skirt, a golden bird broach and a swept-up hair do, Gaga stunned.
Finally, in anticipation of Gaga’s role in telling the story of Gucci, we had to include an outfit from Gucci itself. For the UK premiere of “House of Gucci,” Gaga wore a violet gown fresh off the runway from the very recent Gucci Love Parade fashion show in Los Angeles a few weeks ago.
