ONE THING is clear: Lady Gaga could not stand to be up-staged on the night she would co-chair the Met Gala.
The award-winning singer-songwriter made the most dramatic entrance to the celebrity event on Monday night (New York time), delivering not one, not two, not three… but four incredible costumes.
Abiding by the theme of “Camp: Notes on Fashion”, Gaga arrived on the steps of New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in a fuchsia gown by designer Brandon Maxwell.

The Born This Way singer fluttered her enormous gold fake eyelashes for the cameras, before shedding her over-sized pink sleeves to unveil a strapless black dress with an asymmetrical sweetheart neck line and puffy body.
It was then back to fuchsia in a figure-hugging gown, before the most risque outfit was revealed – a sparkling black bra and undies, complete with black fishnet stockings and sky-high boots.
In an attempt to upstage one another, the celebrities kept rolling up in outrageous costumes, accessories with ridiculous headpieces, enormous trains, props and more.
Competing for the prize of craziest headpiece were Celine Dion (see main photo), Tessa Thompson, Cara Delevinge and Katy Perry.
Wild sleeves were also a thing: Celine Dion (again), Florence Welch, Saoirse Ronan, Kris Jenner, Lupita Nyongo, and co-chair Serena Williams (who made the smart move to wear sneakers).
The stars who would have spent the night frustrated with people stepping on their trains were: Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, Cardi B and Gwen Stefani.
The Greatest Showman actress, Zendaya, arrived looking like a princess and prompting fans to beg for her to star as the next Cinderella.
