If you’re anything like us, you’re nowhere close to having enough Lady Gaga in your life. Her history of sartorial risk-taking and deep rooting in popular music, without a doubt, consistently piques your interest and naturally, makes her the PUH-RIME subject for a blog such as ours. You know it. We know it. Even she knows it. Which is why she’s (omgomgomgggg) performing at the 2011 Video Music Awards and obliged MTV with some seriously amazeballs promos just DRIPPING in fash-alicious goodness.

We already walked you through the series in which Gaga gets jazzy with her latest single “’YoĆ¼ And I”, but last night during Jersey Shore, we watched the premiere of a SECOND promo with FOUR DIFFERENT OUTFITS. We watched with open-mouthed gazes as Gaga slithered from one pantsless outfit to the next in this “Muse Factory” TV spot, and seriously guys, our little hearts almost couldn’t contain our rapture! Since we’re sure you’re dying to know, we’re bringing you a break down of all the fashion credits from the promo – the hard work and creativity of fashion director Nicola Formichetti, stylist Brandon Maxwell, hair stylist Frederic Aspiras, makeup artist Tara Savelo, and nail guru Aya Fukuda.

HIPSTER ROLLER-SKATE WAITRESS

Gaga pairs an over-sized white Salvatore Ferragamo button-up with black fishnet thigh-highs and a quirky pair of white glasses she received as a gift from Sir Elton John
for a look that’s a little bit hipster, a little bit ’50s roller-skate waitress, and a whole lotta AWESOME.

WHAT? THIS OLD THING?

Gaga heads into a closet to shed the geek chic look and comes out radiating angst and edge. Part of it is her sullen expression and listless tossing of her platinum locks. The rest is unmistakably from that HELLA studded Norma Kamali bodysuit she’s rocking like it ain’t no thang.

EXALTING MOTHER MONSTER

The powerful hands-on-hip stance and majestic long-sleeved high-low hem Stephane Rolland couture dress (i…is that LEATHER?!) make it clear that Gaga’s the boss around here. And you better not forget it, lest she squash you with her enormous Pleaser boots. What’s worse? You won’t even know if she’s crying or laughing about it behind her Stephen Jones face mask.

CHANNELING AXL ROSE

Femming up a look intially made popular by Guns and Roses frontman Axl Rose, Gaga pairs Rose’s signature bandanna with a sensual leather bustier by Tripp NYC and a pair of black panties from lingerie experts Victoria’s Secret. We’d like to see him try and work a look this fierce! Or you know, not because that’d probably be weird in a not good way.
