Happy Birthday, Lady Gaga, Woman Of Literally Hundreds Of Hats!

These are all the hats that marked her career to date, from lobster masks to slabs of raw meat!

Lady Gaga wears many hats—she's a singer, dancer, Maria Von Trapp impersonator, and soon-to-be television actress on the new season of American Horror Story. She also wears many hats, literally. Like, on her head. I mean, who can forget the embroidery hoops she wore to the 2009 VMAs? Or the steak fascinator that accompanied her infamous meat dress? Or, my personal favorite, the lobster hat she threw on while strolling the streets of London?

In honor of Mother Monster's birthday today, we thought we'd pay homage to EVERY single item she has ever put on her head (wigs not included because...that's just a whole different undertaking). Because what are birthdays for if not to reflect upon the past and look forward to shopping with Philip Treacy in the future?

And since it's Gaga's 29th birthday, here are our picks for her 29 most memorable toppers. Trust us, narrowing down this list was harder than walking in Alexander McQueen armadillo heels.
