When your name is Lady Gaga, looking outrageous is an understatement. Lady Gaga always keeps us on our toes with her fashion choices since, as she puts it: “a girl’s got to use what she’s given... so I take it to extremes. I don’t say I dress sexily on stage – what I do is so extreme. It’s meant to make guys think, ‘I don’t know if this is sexy or just weird.’”
Here are the top 10 outrageous outfits worn by Gaga... and you can decide for yourself if it's sexy or weird!
1. Muppet Material (German Talk Show Interview, July 2009)
Lady Gaga did a German talk show interview while wearing hundreds of Kermit the Frog dolls by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. Fear not, German public, not all Americans dress like this. Not to mention, Jim Henson, puppeteer creator of Kermit the Frog, must have turned over in his grave after this one.

2. Personal Bubble (Cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, Spring 2009)
This outfit is a Lady Gaga staple, as she’s worn different versions during various performances, as well as for the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. We don’t dare intrude on her bubble, since she’s only wearing fishnet stockings and a nude leotard underneath.

3. The Bird (MTV Video Music Awards, 2009)
So how did Lady Gaga give Beyoncé a standing ovation for her Video of the Year win with Single Ladies? She was spotted with a feather Philip Treacy wreath wrap and white sequined Jean Paul Gaultier dress. We doubt she would’ve looked much different if she had opted for a real bird’s nest instead of the Philip Treacy wreath.

4. The Lobster (2010, Dinner at Mr. Chow in London)
Another typical Philip Treacy look, but not with your typical hat. Unless you would call platinum lobster head-wear and a chicken claw bracelet, “typical.”

5. The Devil Wears Lace (Also at MTV Video Music Awards, 2009)
Yes, I would hide my face with red lace too if I were caught in this. Lady Gaga accepted the Best New Artist Award in this bright red, lacy Alexander McQueen dress. We wonder what she would wear while accepting the Weirdest Outfit Award.

6. Red Meets Royalty (Royal Variety Performance, December 2009)
At the Royal Variety Performance in Blackpool, England, Lady Gaga performed her song Speechless in a red latex gown with a 20-foot train. Afterwards she went to shake hands with Queen Elizabeth II, who was probably left speechless. Well, what else would you wear when meeting the Queen? Obviously, a bright red latex Elizabethan-inspired gown.

7. Lady Bra-Ga (Much Music Awards Performance, 2009)
Didn’t take a rocket scientist to come up with this one... or maybe it did. It seems like she updated Madonna’s cone bra, with the addition of the fireworks feature.

8. Hair, There, Everywhere (Much Music Video Awards, September 2009)
What’s more outrageous than a dress made of hair? Better question, what’s next, a Frog dress? Garbage bags? Oh wait...

9. Down the Chimney (ACE Awards, 2009)
Lady Gaga showed up at the ACE Awards with her undergarments worn over her garments and her hair looking like a huge cotton swab behind the black lace mask. But all we really want to know is why she wore THIS to the ACE Awards? Oh right. Because she’s Lady Gaga.

10. Gone Fishing (Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago, Summer 2010)
The most recent outfit to make this list, this summer, all eyes turned when Gaga came to the festival in a skimpy fishnet outfit and crowd surfed. Barely appropriate, and just barely an outfit.
