Steal the look: Lady Gaga

From shock to chic

Perhaps the most consistent thing about Lady Gaga’s style is its inconsistency. You never know what to expect from the eccentric pop star, but if there’s any constant thread in her style, it’s outrageousness. While many of her ensembles are simply unwearable in the real world, we take a look back at some of her zany outfits and show you trends from them that you can integrate into your own style.

From shock to chic

While we don't suggest donning a full-length sheer contraption like this, we are huge fans of simple, solid-colored (not see-through!) dresses in eye-catching colors. A gorgeous electric shade of blue is almost universally flattering. Check out ASOS' Shoulder Pad Slash Neck Body Con Dress ($44.44), which will give you a hint of Lady Gaga's flair for drama with its bold shoulders. Just because Lady Gaga takes the fringe to the extreme doesn't mean that it's totally off limits: Look at the fringe necklaces at Etsy shop Norwegian Wood, which will be reopening in a few weeks.

Beauty Editor's Note

How to "Lady Gagify" the look:

Cut the top off of a Morticia Adams costume wig; drape gingerly over shoulders. Finish with a pair of night-vision goggles.
