Wearing white after Labor Day isn’t a taboo if you’re Lady Gaga. Snag some white pants, a white blazer, a white bra, and put it all together to get Gagaloo’s Today Show performance look, which was designed by Giorgio Armani. Don’t forget to add a sparkly feather headband and some rhinestones to the bra to make it truly Gaga.

This look requires a little bit of work, but it’s worth it. You need a lot of basics, like a leotard, fishnet tights, a headband, and gloves. Then, all you do is bedazzle the crap out those four pieces with iron-on rhinestones. Voila! You’re Gaga. Add a long gray wig to make your look official.

During Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour, she wore this hot little outfit: A purple leopard-print leotard with matching sparkly purple circles drawn around her eyes. You can create this look yourself by picking up a purple leotard and using leopard print iron-ons to get the pattern on it. Then, throw on a half-yellow, half-bleached white wig, some gloves, and a pair of fishnet stockings, and you’re ready to call yourself Lady Gaga. Remember to grab a pot of purple glitter and smear some around your eyes.

We can’t blame you if you don’t want to prance around a Halloween party jiving to ’Monster Mash’ in nothing but an itty-bitty leotard. That’s why this Lady Gaga look will work for you. It’s not Lady Gaga exactly, but Lady Gaga inspired. Channel her gloriously over-the-top Alexander McQueen look from the 2010 VMAs and wear a floor-length red dress. Throw on a chunky bib necklace to give it some spunk. Make your own gold feather headdress by pasting feathers on a gold headband. Finish the look with Gaga’s greige nail polish, which is so. hot. right. now.
