Lady Gaga has worn countless daring outfits throughout her career, but there are a few that really stand out.
The multihyphenate star recently spoke with British Vogue about 19 of her most iconic looks, including her early fashion and controversial meat dress.
Gaga also shared the inspiration behind the unique Atsuko Kudo gown she wore to meet Queen Elizabeth II in 2009.
“I wanted to dress like a queen in a British fashion, and I also wanted to do it in my way,” she told the publication.
Gaga met the Queen in Blackpool, England, on December 7, 2009, during the annual Royal Variety Performance, a TV event often attended by the British royal family.
“We thought that we would give this look of a queen a modern twist by making it in latex, and at the time, Atsuko Kudo were the only designers that I could think of that were actually tailoring latex in this way,” Gaga continued. “It’s very difficult to tailor latex.”
It wasn’t just the latex that made the gown stand out — the dress also had a high neckline and long sleeves that puffed above the elbows.
To complete the look, Gaga wore pointed red boots, a curled blonde hairstyle, and an array of red crystals around each eye.
Gaga isn’t the only star to wear daring fashion around British royals. Some celebrities like Lenny Kravitz have worn denim and studs to greet members of the family, while others like Miley Cyrus have rocked plunging necklines.
