She has arrived! Lady Gaga looked (dare we say) perfect in her 2019 Met Gala look, a gorgeous four-part look designed by Brandon Maxwell — yes, we said four-part look!
The 33-year-old star hit the carpet in a full-coverage, hot pink parachute dress, accompanied by a crew of tuxeoed men and the designer. They helped her shed that look, leaving her in an old Hollywood-style black gown. After that, she lost that look for a slinky, hot pink gown — which came off for a classic lingerie look.
The 2019 “Camp: Notes on Fashion” event is the 33-year-old’s third time as a guest at the legendary gala, with her first time attending fashion’s biggest night being in 2015. In her short history as an attendee, Gaga has served some serious high fashion looks and she deserves recognition for staying on theme. In a world of celebs who unabashedly throw away the theme each year in favor of whatever they feel like wearing, Gaga is a breath of fresh air.
We’ve definitely missed her on the Met steps over the last few years — both the 2017 and 2018 Met Galas were sadly Gaga-less — but she makes her comeback to the 2019 event not only as a guest, but as a distinguished cochair of the night. Selected alongside Serena Williams, Harry Styles and Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele by Vogue editor Anna Wintour herself, she will be an integral part of the evening.
In 2015, she slayed in a kimono-style Balenciaga dress for her first Met Gala, “China: Through the Looking Glass.” The gorgeous gown was embellished with feathers and she also wore an incredible crown headpiece to compliment.
For her second time at the ball in 2016, she made us proud with her “Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology” look — a positively mechanic Versace bodysuit and blazer duo. In obvious Gaga style, she also rocked a signature pair of her sky-high platform boots. It was on theme, on point and on top of the world.
Now that Gaga has cemented herself as a Met Gala marvel, we hope she’ll stop skipping out every few years! We need to be able to count on these ~lewks~, girl — this display of your style greatness should be an annual holiday.
