The critics might sniff at Tuesday's Brit Awards but with about the 1/20 of the Grammy categories, we think they're a great excuse to cut the speeches and watch more star antics! And what better star than our favourite Lady Gaga, who dominated with wins in the international categories for Best female, Best Breakthrough Act and Best Album for The Fame.

Of course we couldn't mention Lady Gaga without checking her monster fashion. Whether you think the woman is a style maker or a style hater, she certainly knows how to make it on the red carpet. Tuesday found her posing as some kid's Christmas dolly angel in giant white tiers of gathered cloth topped with a mad candyfloss barnet, the unholy hair union of Marge Simpson and the Bride of Frankenstein.

But no, GaGa's appearance would not be complete with at least two outfits and she didn't disappoint, ripping off swaddles of white tulle during her performance to reveal some kind of one-armed, one-legged lace jumpsuit. Only the Lady could grapple with the demon child of a cello and keytar in fungal growths of lace and make it look stylish. Yeah, and the fierce booties. Love it.

Having sold eight million albums and 35 million singles in the last 12 months, we can't say it's a surprise that Gaga swept the awards show. Indeed, her label manager Akon has said that her success has pretty much retired him from singing! After several failed deals and years struggling to make it, Akon saw something great and picked her up on his Kon Live label. I bet he's now laughing all the way to the bank.

Speaking of retirement - winner Lily Allen continues to feed the celebrity news rumour mill by threatening to retire at 24 with her standard poor-little-starlet routine. The Daily star quoted Allen as saying her performance at the Brits was "the perfect way to say goodbye" and that she wants to focus more on personal life and other business ventures.

And what a ridiculous good-bye! Allen opened the show riding on stage on a giant glitter bomb with a Best of British troop of fierce nannies and pop-bankers in bowler hats and Union Jack boxer s. Mary Poppins would not approve.
