American singer-songwriter Lady Gaga surely knows how to make a serious style statement! The singer, one of this year's co-host for the Met Gala 2019, caught everyone's attention with her dramatic costumes on the pink carpet of the big event. Gaga put her own spin to the evening's theme - 'Camp: Notes on Fashion'. Singer-actress Lady Gaga made a grand Met Gala entrance with four outfit changes on the pink carpet.
The A Star is Born actress kicked off the annual Met Gala on Monday with several outfit changes on the carpet.
The Oscar winner wore a stunning billowing neon pink cape dress, which featured an extra-long train by Brandon Maxwell. The dress quite literally stopped the traffic, thanks to the 25-foot train which was carried by a number of men who sported tuxedos for the mega event and carried black umbrellas. They were followed by a person pulling a pink wagon that read, 'Haus of Gaga'. Inside the carriage were clear luggage cases from Maxwell's Spring 2019 collection, accessories including a hairbrush and sunglasses, cowboy hats and a black phone from the '90s. The 33-year-old Oscar-winning singer accessorised with an oversized matching-coloured bow in her hair.
However, when she and Maxwell walked on the red carpet, they began a dramatic work of performance art. The men wearing tuxedos held black umbrellas, as the artist after parading up and down in her pink ensemble slowly removed her jacket and hair-bow to reveal an asymmetrical black strapless gown underneath and posed with one of the umbrellas.
Then in a move which no one was expecting, she removed her black gown to reveal a body-hugging pink dress and menagerie of Tiffany & Co diamonds. This singer paraded and posed in the pink dress with full props in hand. She added just the perfect amount of oomph with extra-large black sunglasses and carried a brick-like phone.
The star's outfits didn't stop there... She then slowly slipped out of the pink dress to reveal her black bra, fishnets, and pair underwear and posed on the stairs. For her final look, Gaga ditched the dresses, opting to strip down into a glittering brassier and underwear set with fishnets and huge platform shoes. In total, the gaga pulled off four dramatic costume changes during her time on the red carpet!
This year's Met Gala theme is "Camp: Notes on Fashion", which was inspired by a seminal 1964 essay by Susan Sontag in which she describes the phenomenon as something that shan't be talked about: "To talk about Camp is therefore to betray it". The theme is the basis for the Costume Institute's spring exhibition.
