Lady Gaga is back in a big way with her new album ARTPOP, so it’s only appropriate that she made a big return to the award-show scene. The singer arrived at the 2013 American Music Awards in a way that only she can: riding a white “horse” made of men.
Her fashion? Incredible. The New York native wore head-to-toe Versace and gave off a distinct Disney-princess vibe — we’re thinking Rapunzel.
The violet Versace didn’t last long, though. Once the show started, Gaga switched her look to a silver, sparkly mermaid gown while perched in the front row with R. Kelly and (we assume) new BFF Taylor Swift, who also dominated the AMAs red carpet.
Of course, that look didn’t last long, either. She soon switched out her long gown for a flirty frock for her sexy performance of “Do What U Want” with Kelly. The whole performance was a tongue-in-cheek ode to all of the sex scandals that have rocked politics — and the Oval Office — over the years, so it’s only natural that her shimmery minidress was a little Marilyn Monroe-esque.
Our favorite outfit of the night? Definitely the violet Versace gown. While we love the risks she takes with her fashion, we’re loving her girly side more.
