Earlier today, Lady Gaga announced that she would be performing at South by Southwest on the Doritos #BoldStage. You can't buy tickets to the show, you have to win them by doing something bold and submitting the results. Mother Monster herself will pick the winner of the first challenge, and the winner will get to attend her intimate show in Austin.
We figured, in case Gaga is too busy reviewing submissions to choose an outfit for herself, we'd give her some options that are #bold and cross-promotional. Being on brand is always best, Gaga. Check out her Doritos dress options—there are plenty of styles to choose from!

With a layered skirt, this option provides a wide range of Doritos bags, which means everyone will like the dress, no matter their flavor preference.

Lady Gaga and Donatella Versace go together like peanut butter and jelly, like eggs and bacon, like stick-straight platinum extensions and deep tans (at least where the singer and the designer are concerned). And much like a newlywed couple fresh off their honeymoon, the perfectly paired duo just cannot stop gushing about one another. After Gaga penned an ode to Versace with her song "Donatella," Versace paid tribute to her bestie by making her the face of her label's new campaigns. As if that weren't enough, now Donatella has shown her love for Mother Monster by singing her praises with an essay in V magazine.

A pink fur coat is just not something you see every day. I bet most people have never even seen a pink fur coat IRL. So imagine the sheer joy that we experienced when we saw that Lady Gaga stepped out wearing a coat almost identical to Cam'ron's infamous early-aughts mink. Two pink fur coats, two of our fave people. And at the risk of inciting an all-out internet brawl, we're asking: Who wore it better?

In New York City, the temperature dipped below freezing to a mere 16 degrees yesterday, but that wasn’t cold enough to stop Lady Gaga from stepping out in a fishnet jumpsuit. And only a fishnet jumpsuit. It was Mother Monster vs. Mother Nature, and judging by pics of Gaga casually strolling around after dusk, she doesn’t seem to be affected by the weather at all. Just look at her stopping to sign an autograph! For a dude very clearly wearing thick winter layers, no less! Taken together with Gaga's previous experience with full-body fishnet (remember that time she crowd-surfed at Lollapalooza in a ripped mesh suit?), it would seem to be an all-weather fabric for her?

After being noticeably absent from our lives thus far in 2014, Lady Gaga has resurfaced on the cover of Harper's Bazaar. While we've missed the multi-outfit days of November, between the spread and interview, there is a ton of fashion in this piece. There's prob enough to tide us over for, like, at least a week.
The spread was shot by Gaga BFF Terry Richardson, and on the cover she rocks a short blonde 'do and no shirt. She's not Miley-level nekkid—she has on a sparkly Saint Laurent jacket. And after staring at this picture for a few minutes, I'm honestly not sure what you could wear under that jacket, so no shirt seems pretty reasonable, IMHO.
Welcome back, classic Lady Gaga! In a video clip to promote ticket sales for her upcoming ARTPOP Ball Tour in the UK, Mother Monster brought back a look from her "Poker Face" days with a platinum, full-bang hairstyle, her signature pointy shoulder pads, and indoor sunglasses (of course). Little Monsters will be pleased to know they can dust off their The Fame-era wigs. It's OK, Monsters, you can temporarily retire your smeared white face- and body powder. It was too hard to copy on an everyday basis anyway.

If you're a longtime Little Monster, you'll remember the Gagavision videos Lady Gaga released weekly during 2008 and 2009. In 2011, after the release of Born This Way, Gaga resurrected the series for four episodes. And now, it's back yet again. Early this morning, Gaga dropped "Gagavision no. 45," which ~sorta~ documents her big weekend in Paris. I say sorta because "Mambo Italiano" is playing over the video and you can barely hear one word that is uttered. Whatever, though, right? Who cares about WORDS with there is #FASHUN to look at.
The first shot of the Gaga-edited video is Mother Monster deplaning a private jet, champagne bottle in hand, decked out in what I assume is Versace. The sheer dress is pretty similar to one Gaga wore in her Versace ad and, TBH, it'd be pretty weird to wear a different designer for a "Paris Atelier Versace Couture Weekend." Plus, those silver Medusa heads are a dead giveaway.
Over the long weekend, the fashion elite started flocking to Paris to catch a glimpse of the latest in haute couture collections. Lady Gaga was there, too, but I'm pretty sure she was just celebrating herself. Not that I blame her, of course—because she was pretty much the center of attention wherever she went (in, like, a much bigger way than usual). And this is a woman who regularly exits hotels with giant props and once arrived to an awards show on a human horse. Hard to believe, I know.

On Sunday, Gaga celebrated herself with a cameo at the Atelier Versace show (courtesy of her BFF, Donatella Versace). The singer, who was recently named the new face of the Italian fashion house, showed up in a black hooded dress (that would moments later hit the runway for the first time) and her very apropos Donatella-style blonde wig. #twinsies
OBVIOUSLY, Mother Monster sat front row for the show (next to famed photog, Mario Testino), and enjoyed a soundtrack from herself, featuring both old and ARTPOP songs. "ARTPOP: anyone can achieve everything I have and more. Your talent belongs to the world. Share it. You'll wake up in the front row @Versace," she tweeted after the show. Oh, it's as easy as sharing? Good to know. Get to work, Little Monsters.

In the world of music and fashion, a day without a Lady Gaga sighting feels like an eternity. While we got used to seeing Mother Monster everywhere (and in numerous outfits) throughout November and December, she's barely been spotted in the new year. The last time we saw her perform was on The Voice with Christina Aguilera, when the duo wore matching iridescent-gold chiffon outfits. It looks like Gaga may have had some shiny material left over, because she wore a very similar look to NBC's Golden Globes after-party last night.
Taking the name of the awards show rather literally, Gaga joined her BF, Taylor Kinney, on the after-party circuit in a gold lamé dress. While her Voice jumpsuit was billowy and full-coverage, Gaga's Globes dress showed off some skin with its high slit, single sleeve, and bejeweled corset bodice. When LG comes back into our lives, she comes in BIG.
