Lady Gaga has always been a fashion icon that pushes the envelope, but recently, her style has leaned more towards Old-Hollywood glamour and sophistication. This significant evolution in her fashion choices coincides with her performance in more ‘highbrow’ projects, like her memorable role in A Star is Born, for which she garnered multiple award nominations (and secured the Oscar for Best Original Song).

But this year’s 2020 VMAs brought us the old Gaga in new trail-blazing fashion. Making multiple appearances – and bringing home five awards herself including the first ever Tri-con award – she shocked and awed streaming audiences around the globe with her nine extraordinary costume changes, complete with protective face masks that made not just a fashion statement, but a social one too.

However, it wasn’t just her extraordinary costumes that were unusual. This year’s VMAs were the first major awards show broadcast since the pandemic shut down the possibility of major gatherings. Even with no physical audience, Lady Gaga’s show-stopping ensembles were crowd pleasers on social media. “Just because we’re separated right now, and culture may feel less alive in some ways, I know a Renaissance is coming,” she shared during an acceptance speech. “Stay safe, speak your mind, and I might sound like a broken record, but wear a mask — it’s a sign of respect.”
