Starting off in an avant-garde milk carton look, Lady GaGa brought her signature weird to the VMA stage Sunday night with a medley of looks demanding Applause.
Once she stripped from her all-white, head-to-toe milk piece, GaGa danced like the black swan in a black, glittering, one-piece suit that was soon layered with an equally shimmering blue blazer and skirt.
And then, just like magic (and the speedy hands of back-up dancers), GaGa donned a wig a la Just Dance and paid homage to the beginning of her mainstream career.
Soon she'd strip again, back down to the sparkling suit to convey the feel for her next look — the classic yellow blonde Telephone wig.
A timeline of her career already?
But the ghosts of GaGa past finally bowed as the fashion of GaGa present arrived in the form of her sea-shelled mermaid look from the Applause video — voluminous hair and all.
Did the self-gifted style tribute work for U?
