Lady Gaga’s performance at the VMAs has elicited a varied slew of responses. After two years of wildly dramatic attire that pushed all boundaries of fashion and common sense, the singer elected to spend the entire show– both her actual performance of “You and I” and later onstage appearance with Britney Spears– dressed in drag, as her alter ego Jo Calderone.

This next set of pictures are for all of the weird yet awesome masks she wears. Do you think it’s hot under there? I bet the 5 pounds of eye make-up she puts on is running down her face after performing with some of these bad boys on!
The mirror mask must be pretty heavy. Do you think her parents look at her and say wow, I see so much of myself in you! Okay that was way too cheesy, even for me! This is a pretty sweet picture though. It’s like she the bad ass ninja of pop music!
I think the gimp from Pulp Fiction may have been her inspiration for this one.
I feel like Zorro was the inspiration for this one.
All of these mask pictures are a great way to transition into my next little collection of pictures. Who can forget the 2009 MTV video music awards? Six costume changes, masks, feathers, fake blood, a crown, and a bird’s nest! These are the things that every woman should have in her closet; they’re the real staples of any solid wardrobe!
This is a perfect choice for walking the red carpet. She looks like a raven going to the ball!
This next one was what she wore for her performance. I included two pictures because I wanted to show the little mask she wore before she ripped it off and started bleeding out of her stomach. You know, typical performance stuff.
Then this was the outfit she wore for watching most of the award show after her performance. This is a good choice because you want to be comfortable if you’re going to be sitting there for a while. Plus you never know when the sides of your face will get cold.
Then there’s the total dilemma of what to wear for when they announce the winner of category that you’re nominated for. Elegant gown? Something short and sassy? Even one of her typical leotards? Nope, let’s go with the face and body covering lace thing with a crown. Yes. Yes that is the solid choice.
After the award show is over all of the winners go into a pressroom where they get their picture taken for the press and then shout out a few words about how awesome they are. I actually think this is the sanest outfit she wore all night. For me it feels kind of like a space man meets the Little Mermaid, Ariel’s shell bra. This is probably the most comfortable thing she wore all night.
Then there’s the after party outfit. I’m at a loss for words on this one. I think it pretty much makes fun of it’s self.
Now as a final note, I would like to say that I’m a big Lady Gaga fan and do not mean any disrespect with any of the comments I make. .
