We revisit some of her incredible fashion moments as the star turns 33 this month

Words by Emily B

28 March is ‘Mother Monster’s’ birthday and while she continually dazzles us with her music, acting and activism achievements, today we recount some of her fashion looks.

Just Dance

Lady Gaga’s debut song, which shot to number 1 worldwide, is now 11 years old this month. Drawing influences from artists including Madonna and David Bowie, Gaga’s memorably brought us black glasses and white blonde hair. But this was just the start.

Bad Romance

When Bad Romance was released in 2009 it also launched Gaga’s individual fashion style and branding. The video brought us product placement, latex, more sunglasses, those contact lenses, killer heels, dance moves and Haus of Gaga; modelled on Andy Warhol’s Factory.

Nice to meat you

Who can forget the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA)? Lady Gaga accepted the Video of the Year award dressed in a meat dress, taking showing a bit of flesh to a new level.

Shell out performances

The 2013 edition of the MTV VMAs saw Lady Gaga power through outfit changes, which deserved an award it its own right! After her final performance she met One Direction still wearing her shell bra and thong. Awks?
