Toast to Lady Gaga's 27th! See Her Wildest Looks Over the Years

By Angel Lenise March 28, 2013
Keep calm, and look at Lady Gaga in Commes des Garçons. Back in September 2012, Gaga faced all those critics who slammed her for (minimal!) weight gain in this oversized design from the Japanese label. Guess Gaga got the last laugh!
With fashion month in full swing, Gaga worked the runway at milliner Philip Treacy's Spring 2013 show on September 16, 2012 in London.
And here the Lady is front row at Treacy's show, looking like a living work of art thanks to a floral installation that framed her face.
FAME! What better way for Gaga to promote her September 2012 perfume launch than to coordinate her outfit to her bottle's gilded and gloomy design?!
One of the more demure looks from Gaga came at the 2012 Grammy Awards where she rocked all-black-everything. But somehow, her netted headpiece, sky-high platforms, and gilded gold cane make her standout next to country singer Miranda Lambert.
Happy New Year! Gaga gave New York City's Times Square Ball a run for its money as she helped the city countdown to 2012.
Forget Santa's little helpers—when Gaga's workshop opened at Barneys in November 2011, that's where the stylish set flocked for holiday finds. Not to mention, Gaga's custom Chanel gown made the opening that much more amazing.
Here, we find Gaga in October 2011, walking the streets of Londontown in a rather hairy situation—no pun intended. She still manages to tone this spectacle down (if that's even possible!) with classic Christian Louboutin pumps.
It's not a bird, nor is it a plane, and it certainly isn't the Lady Gaga we're used to seeing. At the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, Gaga shed her normally avant garde looks to become Jo Calderone.
If there's one thing that Lady Gaga knows, it's fashion. No matter how extreme her style, Mother Monster always makes an entrance and leaves an impression on the entire room. In true form, here she is with a chic blue bob at the 2011 CFDA Awards in Manhattan.
We're still not sure what to make of this ornate headpiece that Gaga wore during her performance on ABC's "Good Morning America" in May 2011... but somehow, we're not surprised. It is Gaga, after all.
Two words: egg incubator. In this case, a picture speaks more than a thousand words, and Gaga certainly made the entrance of the night at the 53rd annual Grammy Awards in February 2011.
Alexander McQueen designed this regal, yet flamboyant, gown for Gaga's arrival to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards that could only be beat by...
There's nothing classier than a woman in pearls—even if they're appliquéd to one's face. Gaga was a vision in white at the amFAR New York Gala to kick-off fashion week 2010.
It's Gaga's world, we're just orbiting about her, as evidenced with this custom Giorgio Armani Prive gown she wore to the 52nd annual Grammy Awards.
After her two award wins that night, it's safe to say she struck gold with this Philip Treacy hat.
Even in the beginning of her career, Lady Gaga was quite the risk taker. And although she's wearing reasonable shoes for this 2008 performance on Fox Good Day New York, that 3-D dress and her once-signature hair bow make this a classic Gaga look.
...this meat dress.
Now this is a lady in red. While the cut of the dress is as close to a simple silhouette that we'll get from Gaga, those exaggerated sleeves and shockingly high platforms make this one a sure attention grabber.
With green hair up to there and heels that bring her higher than ever, Lady Gaga manages to make a rather neutral outfit still pop. This was her look of choice on June 7, 2011 when she charmed the press before her ArtScience Museum performance in Singapore.
Although she's a petite 5'2'', Gaga proved she can still storm the runway with the best of them, walking in BFF Nicola Formichetti's Fall 2012 show for Thierry Mugler during Paris Fashion Week.
Nothing like a little fake blood to get the 2009 VMA's going... right?!
Lady Gaga turns 27 today—here are some of her craziest looks.
