Whether it’s rocking a meat dress or a bikini made of sea shells, Lady Gaga has never disappointed us on the VMA’s red carpet, however this year, not even a pandemic could stop the queen of Chromatica from making headlines with possibly her best looks yet. 


The singer, who is off the back of her 2020 release, ‘Chromatica’, took home a total of 5 awards and for every acceptance speech, as well as her performance, she was in completely different looks with matching face coverings (queen of the pandemic, literally). From an ensemble inspired by the VMA’s Moon Person trophy to a kaleidoscopic rainbow gown and white feather coat by Valentino, here are Lady Gaga’s most show stopping looks of the night.

Lady Gaga’s carpet looks was inspired by the VMAs' Moon Person statue. The look consisted of a black dress worn under a silver jacket by Area, a clear helmet by Muscarella, and black platform boots by Pleasers.

To accept her first award of the night for Song of the Year, which she won for her duet with Ariana Grande “Rain on Me”, Lady Gaga wore a kaleidoscopic rainbow dress by Iris Van Herpen, which was finished with intricate fringe detailing. She partnered the dress with black boots by Pleasers and a hot pink mask that covered her nose, mouth and encircled her eyes, which was designed by Cecilio Castrillo.

The second award, for Best Collaboration with Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga donned a metallic green ballgown designed by Christopher John Rogers, who Net-a-Porter declared as THE designer to watch in 2020. She completed the fantasy with a statement necklace and a mask with horns protruding out of either side by Lance Victor Moore.

Lady Gaga served up another outfit change as she accepted the award for Artist of the Year. This time round, the singer sported a sequin body suit under an oversized white feather coat designed by Valentino, this look really was the show-stopper that got people talking. 

Lady Gaga accepted the Tricon Award, the VMA's version of the life achievement award, in a silver jacket with matching mask and head ensemble. Los Angeles designer Candice Cuoco created the overcoat, while Manuel Albarran was responsible for the singer’s pointy bra and choker, which she wore over a Valentino bodysuit.
