Whew, Lady Gaga’s been busy this week! Exactly seven days ago, she was spotted in London wearing a white gown that resembled a wedding dress to the Arts Club in Mayfair, then she flew back to NYC to promote her Fame fragrance (complete with a partially-shaved head and skull tattoo), and just this weekend she was back across the pond making QUITE the impression during London Fashion Week. For the first time in 12 years, iconic Irish milliner Philip Treacy (yes, the guy who made Princess Beatrice’s infamous pink fascinator) showed his collection during LFW, and Lady Gaga did her best to properly support the designer—by opening his show in a dramatic sheer pink burka over a floral-embellished nude bodysuit. She stepped out onto the pitch black runway with nothing but a spotlight and the sound of her platform heels hitting the ground, extended her arms out to the side and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, the greatest milliner in the world, Philip Treacy—in the clothes of the late Michael Jackson. Open fashion!” And just when we thought that would be the highlight of the show, Lady Gaga continued to switch up her ensemble off the runway so many times we could barely keep up.

In one of Lady Gaga’s getups, she wore a beige silk and fur burka ensemble (similar to her opening Philip Treacy look) complete with a dripping diamond headpiece, an assortment of raccoon tails, a giant blue and silver star ring, and a naughty hot pink and yellow clutch that read “C***.” For her second ensemble, she definitely channeled MJ with an ornate white pearl brocade suit jacket with an embellished black button-up shirt, diamond brooch, Mickey Mouse-inspired hat (so 2009 VMAs, no?), skin-tight black pants, platform heels, and the infamous diamond-encrusted single white glove. In Mother Monster’s last look, she wore a Philip Treacy floral headpiece (or should we say helmet? We’ll never forget that similar face-encompassing Philip Treacy headgear from the 2009 VMAs) paired with a forest green Alexander McQueen velvet dress, leggings and booties. Dang, we’re getting tired just talking about all of Gaga’s ensembles! *dabs sweat off upper lip* But tell us, which Mother Monster look do you like best?
