The Oscar-winning singer and actress, who is co-chairing this year’s event, opened up the Met Gala red carpet with a true performance, changing looks four times with the help of longtime friend — and the look’s designer — Brandon Maxwell.
Gaga’s first look: a billowing hot pink dress with matching bow. After posing and dancing around with a team of dancers equipped with theatrical black umbrellas, Maxwell unbuttoned her dress, revealing a black ballgown with fitted bodice.
Gaga then revealed another hot pink dress, this time a slinky silk number with a black bra peeking out. She added oversize black Linda Farrow sunglasses and a Nineties-era cell phone — which was actually a Judith Leiber bag — for a touch of camp to the already-campy performance.
Finally, Gaga stripped off the dress to reveal a crystal-studded bra and underwear set. She then took a hot pink wagon branded with “Haus of Gaga,” which was filled with bottles of Champagne and jewelry. Gaga does have a trademark registered under the name, but it is unclear if this is her way of debuting the line.
