The 2014 Grammy Awards were all about amazing performances, stunning fashions, and creating wonderful memories that will last us forever. JK, the night was like 99% about Pharrell's hat! And Madonna's hat! And Pharrell's OTHER hat! From the second the stars started to fill out the red carpet, we couldn't help notice that hip headgear was simply everywhere. Take a look at ALL of tonight's millinery masterpieces:

We're going to go ahead and deem Pharrell's hats the real stars of the Grammys. I mean, hellooo. Just LOOK at his red carpet hat, the first one of two he sported this evening. Twitter appropriately exploded as people started drawing comparisons ranging from Smokey Bear to Canadian Mountie to Arby's logo. He changed for his "Get Lucky" performance, opting for a more conservative, albeit equally large and awesome, fedora. But, c'mon, Pharrell rocks no matter WHAT sits atop his beautiful head.

In the words of John Lennon, "Ooooooh Yoko." Venerated, and, some would say, notorious conceptual artist Yoko Ono is up to her usual tricks once again, unleashing her signature evocative, intellectual, and frankly pretty wacky artistic vision unto the world with her partners-in-crime-as-of-late, Opening Ceremony. To complement her err, handsy menswear collection Yoko made a video tutorial providing a series of "Make-Up Tips For Men," which include, but are not limited to, "When you see a rainbow in the sky./Breathe it in/And make your room into a rainbow room." Listen up, boys.

The question seems simple enough. Would you wear Yoko Ono's Opening Ceremony collection? Without looking, you think, "Duh, why not?" And then, you catch a glimpse of the inner-thigh cutouts, crotch handprints, and *achem* butt motif running up and down these togs, and you maybe start to squeeze down on the brakes a little bit. MAYBE. Sure, Yoko Ono is her own living legend on top of being the widow of John Lennon, and perhaps that's reason alone for someone to sport her designs. *Kanye shrug* But let's not forget for one minute that she is a primarily avant-garde artist and her two-part M.O. (just, like, as a person) is to first, get a reaction from her work, and second, project a particular message to the world. That said, if this collection makes you squirm or giggle or click "Buy" or ELICIT ANY FEELING EVER, that's GOOD. Whatever you're feeling is good. More specifically, though, we want to know if you feel like wearing any of it.
Lady Gaga bites Yoko Ono at her Fame launch at the Guggenheim museum.
We've already shown you the tattoo that Lady Gaga had inked onto her scalp at the Guggenheim museum last night, in celebration of Steven Klein's short film for her debut fragrance, Fame. Well, now we're ready to tell you the whole story, as far as we know it (and you know, you can never be sure with Mama Monster). She entered atop her car, as we said in our previous post, and snuck into the Gugg before most of the crowd had assembled, and well before her guests had arrived. We then took our place on the carpet to watch as the revelers poured in. It was a mix of high fashion faces, from Marc Jacobs to Interview editorial director Fabien Baron, to The Man Repeller herself, Leandra Medine, and pop notables like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. We were lucky enough to chat with a select few of the guests about what they were excited about and what Lady Gaga means to them, catching up with some of the celebs mentioned above (you'll have to watch to see who), as well as Yoko Ono, who compared Mama Monster to an angel, and figure skater and reality show star Johnny Weir, who is himself often referred to as "The Lady Gaga Of Figure Skating." Once inside, guests were treated to a screening of Steven Klein's short film, which he told us "explores the idea of the temptation of fame," and all of its many facets, as well as to Gaga's "Sleeping With Lady Gaga" performance piece. Check out our red carpet interviews, the full short film, and some photos from inside of the event after the jump.

Lady Gaga, no stranger to outrageous fashion by way of meat dresses, hair capes, and fishnet bodysuits, debuted another outrageous outfit over the weekend — a bedazzled black bodysuit that was sheer ... almost everywhere. Lady Gaga wore the outfit on Saturday night when she performed at the We Are Plastic Ono Band gig in Los Angeles with John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono. Large platform black boots and gray hair wrapped in a headband completed the look. Do you like the outfit? We do! It's more elaborate than the stage outfits she wears for the Monster Ball, yet it still holds all of the elements she's known for — somewhat see-through, full of sparkles, and dangerous shoes. It's like her Lollapalooza outfit, only better and without nipple stickers! What do you think?
