Not only does Lady GaGa amaze audiences every time she sings, but she also makes sure that she shocks and entertains with her outlandish style statements. From fashionistas to fashion police, nobody can stop going GaGa when it comes to discussing the multi-talented burlesque New Yorker, who out of interest's sakes' original name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.

Famous for her pant-less attire, Lady GaGa more than compensates for her skimpy clothing with oversized bags, futuristic sunglasses, big false lashes, thick eyeliner and prominently noticeable shoes. Apart from the tall stilettos, Lady Gaga has been known to make up for her diminutive 5'1 figure with large headwear, sometimes even in the form of an oversized bow made out of her own hair.

Her outrageous style
Lady GaGa is a bona fide style chameleon. The singer-lyricist-musician doesn't seem to favour one fashion trend for too long and attempts to look bolder and more outrageous with every new fashion style she experiments with. From the singer's own mouth (which she prefer to paint in Geisha-girl style lipstick to form a peculiar pout these days) she is "very in to fashion" and that it is "everything". Though Lady GaGa once said she chose music over a man, it appears she keeps fashion over music. While her music albums have remained on the top of the charts for weeks, her outrageous style statements are discussed for months.

Going GaGa over her love for fashion, Lady GaGa said, "When I'm writing music, I'm thinking about the clothes I want to wear on stage. It's all about everything altogether — performance art, pop performance art, fashion. For me, it's everything coming together and being a real story that will bring back the super-fan. I want to bring that back. I want the imagery to be so strong that fans will want to eat and taste and lick every part of us."

Her obsession for shoes

Commenting on her fetish shoes, an observer once said, Lady GaGa may forget her pants but not her pumps! The Just Dance singer has made a lot of provocative style statements with the kind of shoes she wears. Preparing to release her third single Paparazzi, Lady GaGa caught a lot of media attention in London recently by teaming black PVC panties and a bra with a pair of cream thigh-high lace up PVC boots.

The 'Poker Face' singer, whose shoes are as much talked about as her songs, favours the ultra stylish Jimmy Choo shoes, but for performances, she opts for teetering stripper heels she buys at, well, "specialty" stores around 42nd Street. This is a practical matter, she notes. "They're made to be more comfortable, so that I can dance onstage but still have the height."

Apart from risqué thigh high shoes (the higher and the more outrageous the better), Lady GaGa is also often spotted in very high heel stiletto heel shoes, peep toe booties, PVC knee length boots, rubber shoes, lace up sandals, patent court shoes and wedge sandals. Most of her shoes are shiny and as colourful as her outfits. The heels of the shoes are always high to cover up for the short stature of The Fame singer.

Her outlandish hair styles

Lady GaGa, who is said to have imbibed her love for fashion from her mother, who was "always very well kept and beautiful" has her own creative production team called "Haus of GaGa" which she handles personally. They create some of her fashion, props on stage and also her much talked about hair. The provocative singer's hair styles are definitely hard to miss and at times are the cynosure of her complete ensemble even is she is wearing skimpy hot pants.

Her signature dyed-blonde hair with straight-cut bangs does most of the talking for her. The obsessively opposed to the typical singer sports a trademark large bow hair style made of her own hair. Apart from rendering her a larger than life figure, the high bows add to her short height. Once Lady GaGa chose to attract publicity by wearing a foot high cone head hair style made of plaits. Absurd, you may call, but that's Lady GaGa the fearlessly stylish 23 year old who can pull off just about anything.

The originally brunette fashion icon managed to get a completely new hair style - going from a short peroxide bob to long pink highlighted extensions, on a 10 hour flight to London from Los Angeles. Recently, however, it's been noticed, Lady GaGa is giving her locks a rest and flaunting her new fashion fetish for hats.

Controversy on Christina Aguilera stealing Lady GaGa's style

Back in 2008, comparisons were made between the fashion sense of GaGa and American singer-songwriter Christina Aguilera, noting similarities in their styling, hair and make-up. Christina insisted she had never heard of GaGa saying, 'I'm not quite sure who this person is, to be honest, I don't know if it is a man or a woman." Afterward GaGa released a statement where she welcomed the comparisons because the media attention had provided useful publicity, "a lot of people in America didn't know who I was until that whole thing happened", she said. However, Lady GaGa later added that she doesn't just want to be remembered for the "Christina Aguilera scandal" and that "nobody can copy me, because I can't be copied", the eccentrically innovative singer added.
