Eccentric. Outrageous, Different. These are just some of the ways to describe Lady Gaga.

Ever since we saw her in that platinum blonde wig with stick-straight fringe and silver hardware in her 2008 video "Poker Face," it was obvious that she wasn't your average pop star.

Whether wearing a dress made of red meat or rocking some of the most ridiculously constructed heels on the red carpet, Lady Gaga is unapologetic about her style choices ± and even welcomes discussion around them. You can call her avant garde or a little weird, but the "Born This Way" singer never lets the clothes wear her. And although she's toning things down a little bit and gone for more of the old Hollywood look these days, she's still managing to make jaws drop at every opportunity.
