Lady Gaga picked up three trophies at last night’s Brit Awards, and in what may have been a nod to the number of nominations she received, the singer showed up on the red carpet in a three-tiered cape dress that seemed all too conservative for the style chameleon.
As expected, the cape dress was just a decoy for the flesh-baring lace number that she wore for her performance of “Telephone” and “Dance in the Dark.”
Gaga kept her lace mask on, but the outfit itself seemed like a cross between Halle Berry’s 2002 Oscar dress and something Courtney Love might wear to the grocery store. If the outfit seemed a bit subdued for the usually outrageous-dressing chanteuse, it was due in part to a tribute for the late Alexander McQueen, the designer who Gaga had often collaborated with and whom she dedicated her performance to last night.
But subdued went out the window when it came to Gaga’s lace face mask and sky-high hair, which had a Bride of Frankenstein thing going on. That may explain the wedding cake-like structure of her red carpet outfit.
What do you guys think of Gaga’s outfits? Which do you like better – red carpet or performance?
