Lady Gaga arrived at the Grammy Awards red carpet on Sunday night in an egg designed by powerhouse fashion houses Hussein Chalayan and House of Mugler. And we’d expect nothing less from Gaga, who has a long list of unusual and over-the-top awards-show entrances in her short career.
Check out photos of Lady Gaga’s most memorable entrances.
Back in September, Gaga hit the white carpet of the 2010 VMAs in a gown designed by late friend Alexander McQueen and was joined by several servicemen and women who had been discharged from the U.S. Air Force and Army for being openly gay or bisexual. “These soldiers that are with me today have all been discharged from the Air Force or Army, or opted to leave on their own. … Their stories are truly inspiring, and in my opinion — and as so many young people around the world believe — ’don’t ask, don’t tell’ is wrong, it’s sick, it’s immoral,” she explained of her choice to include them in her appearance.
Later in the night she appeared in the press room wearing the now-famous meat dress and pointed out its connection to her earlier companions. “If we don’t stand up for what we believe in and if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our own bones,” Gaga explained. “And I am not a piece of meat.”
At last year’s Grammy Awards, Gaga was out-of-this world in a sparkly lavender and silver dress that looked like a planet with orbiting rings. What did the spacey outfit mean? “The series of pieces Mr. Armani created for me are truly iconic; they represent not only beautiful fashion, but my spirit and essence as an artist,” she said. “Mr. Armani is a fashion legend, and tonight would not have been the same without his touch, and his wonderful team.”
Gaga, who once wore a dress made of Kermit the Frogs, arrived at the 2009 VMAs with Kermit himself as her date for the big show. It was the first time that Gaga had created such a major spectacle for herself at an awards show. “He’s been a really good date,” Gaga joked to MTV News. “It’s our first date, but we’ve been eyeing each other for a while.”
And on Sunday night, though she didn’t do interviews as her egg was being carried into the Staples Center, the art piece spoke for itself.
“She’s born this way, so maybe she’s being born again!” MTV News red-carpet correspondent Snooki noted after Gaga waved to her from inside her shell. Of course!
