Lady Gaga strips down to her bra and underwear on the Met Gala carpet
There are grand entrances, and then there is Lady Gaga's outrageous multiple-outfit arrival at the 2019 Met Gala.
As one of the co-chairs of the annual fashion event, which this year celebrates the new exhibition "Camp: Notes on Fashion," Gaga not only brought drama but brought it in several forms.
Four, to be exact.
First, the pop star hit the carpet in a billowing sea of fuchsia, complete with giant bows, huge golden eyelashes and a gigantic train that flowed beautifully in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, thanks to the help of gentlemen, including Gaga's designer Brandon Maxwell.
But the performance had just begun. Assistants next helped her take off the outer pink layer to reveal a strapless, asymmetrical black gown with one dramatically molded hip. The second dress matched her new accessory, a black umbrella. She showed it off with another walk up the stairs.
But wait, there's more.
The black material was soon gone to reveal a fitted hot pink column dress. This look was paired with oversized Linda Farrow sunglasses and a retro block cell phone. She appeared to make a call. Maybe to alert the fashion authorities that she just killed it.
And finally? Gaga stripped down to her skivvies. She wore glittery stockings under a sparkling bra and underwear paired with sky-high black boots. She sprawled out on the stairs and vogued for overwhelmed onlookers.
There were more even accessories: She wore a 28-carat Tiffany diamond choker and rolled a pink wagon with Maxwell's champagne, along with two pink hats in lucite boxes that looked like the one she wore on her "Joanne" album cover.
USA TODAY spotted Anna Wintour perching at the top of the stairs watching Gaga’s entire over-the-top entrance.
When the major fashion moment was finally over, Gaga and Maxwell high-fived on their way inside the gala.
