Lady Gaga bares it all, 2019
There are, quite simply, no words for the performance Lady Gaga put on at the 2019 Met Gala. The actress and singer showed up in a fuschia Brandon Maxwell cape gown with a 25-foot train, taking off layer after layer until she was writhing on the steps of the Met in lingerie, fishnets, and sky-high heels. Nobody does it better!

Things only got more jaw-dropping from there, as the Pose star showed off a custom “Sun God” ensemble by The Blonds, which included a bejeweled catsuit outfitted with 10-foot wings, a 24-karat gold headpiece, as well as custom gold-leaf Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and fine jewels by Andreoli, John Hardy, and Oscar Heyman.
