Ever the artist and entertainer, Lady Gaga has a slew of exciting projects coming up. Later this month, the singer and actor will (finally!) release her Chromatica Ball concert film on HBO. Then, in October, she will star in the Joker sequel alongside Joaquin Phoenix. (Just think of the red carpet looks we’ll see during the press tour.) Gaga is one of the world’s most fashion-forward, risk-taking celebrities (remember the meat dress?). In anticipation of her very busy 2024, Vogue is taking a look back at some of the star’s best ensembles over the years—83 of them, to be exact.

Since bursting onto the scene in 2008 with her critically-acclaimed album The Fame, Gaga’s fashion evolution has kept us guessing along the way. She’s the queen of eras—drastically transforming and changing her look with each album release. When she was first starting out, for one, Gaga was all about a futuristic disco look, wearing pieces such as hooded bodysuits and architectural dresses. This is the year she also introduced The Haus of Gaga to the world—her small creative team who would be responsible for her costumes, props, and sets for many years to come.

In the 2010s, however, is when Lady Gaga emerged as the flamboyant red carpet dresser we know her as today. At the 2010 MTV VMAs, she paid tribute to Alexander McQueen in a custom bosch-print gown, gold feather mohawk, and staggering armadillo shoes (she loves death-defying shoes). “I’ve always been inspired by Alexander McQueen—I think he’s potentially the greatest designer of all time,” Gaga shared in her Vogue “Life in Looks” video. That same night, she switched into her infamous meat dress, which was designed by Frank Fernandez but envisioned by her Haus of Gaga—complete with a meat hat and meat purse, of course. (Fun fact: In her Life in Looks video, Gaga shared there was actually a corset sewn underneath the meat, to give the garment some much-needed shape.)
