Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Stupid Love" Lady Gaga never shies away from fully expressing herself through dress in her avant-garde music videos, especially with the pop star's highly anticipated "Stupid Love" visual, released Friday (Feb. 28). Let's revisit Gaga's most gaga looks over the years.
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Alejandro" Gaga carefully observes her male dancers in the 2010 "Alejandro" visual with a lace binocular headpiece by British designer Nasir Mazhar while also wearing a custom Alexander McQueen black cape for the ultimate power look. But she masks her powerlessness, as music video director Steven Klein describes the story being told as "the pain of living without your true love."
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Applause" Lady Gaga deserves "Applause" for her 2013 music video look because her yellow tousled curls and bright red lipstick channel Andy Warhol's painting of Marilyn Monroe. Yet Gaga's shredded white dress and skeleton-like makeup feel like the late starlet's demons that came with her fame are now haunting the attention-seeking pop star.
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Bad Romance" Gaga's digitzed doe-eyes from her eye-catching 2009 "Bad Romance" clip inspired an entire makeup trend. Fans bought circle colored-contact lenses to look like her crazy character.
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Born This Way" Gaga's 2011 "Born This Way" video featured many odes to "Alejandro" from the year before, especially her McQueen-designed headdress (resembling a pope's mitre) and neck regalia. But her extraterrestrial Mother Monster alter ego defies humanity with her prosthetic cheekbones and augmented alien birth.
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Edge of Glory" Gaga continues being a tortured lover in the 2011 "Edge of Glory" accompanying visual, with a half-white, half-black colored bob to match her gold-studded vintage black Versace ensemble. At the time, Donatella Versace compared her to her brother Gianni for being "unafraid to push boundaries.... For me, this video represents a wonderful tribute to anyone who is unafraid to take chances."

Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Marry The Night" The pop star wears many hats throughout her decade-long career singer, dancer, fashionista but when it comes to the actual hats she wears, the grander, the more Gaga. And there's no exception to the rule in her 2011 "Marry the Night" video.
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Paparazzi" Gaga ditched her iconic hair bow and opted for a pink-streaked flat bun angled at the side of her head for her 2009 "Paparazzi" clip.
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Poker Face" Her "Poker Face" from 2009 shimmered as she emerged from a pool wearing an unconventional mirror mask and black latex swimsuit for the video's opening shot.
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Telephone" The pop star sports a Haus of Gaga one-shoulder leopard-print leotard in front of the P---y Wagon, the getaway car that featured artist Beyonce drives in their 2010 "Telephone" clip.
Courtesy Photo Lady Gaga, "Stupid Love" Gaga's signature intergalactic fashion returns in her 2020 "Stupid Love" music video, with each pretty in pink outfit seeming out of this world. But her longtime makeup artist Sarah Tanno explained the purpose behind her punk-themed outfits: "I came up with this idea to create her 'Kindness Armor' something she could put on to empower self-love, self-acceptance, and kindness to both herself and others."
